FAT TRANSFER TO THE HIPS FOR THE ULTIMATE SHAPE

Statistically, it has been determined that most women are not born with the hourglass shape. Only 10% of women have this shape that defines a beautiful body. There are only a few shutterstock_439466017surgical techniques that will recreate the hourglass shape, but one of the most powerful is fat transfer to the hips. If we look at how women’s bodies distribute fat, it is very common for them to gain weight in the abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks; so, the hips are an area where fat should be transferred to get the best shape.

Fat transfer is a procedure where liposuction is used to harvest fat from any area where you have excessive fat, then the fat is processed and reinjected in other areas for a more proportionate body. One of the areas that I like to remodel is the hip area. I inject fat to increase the width of the hips and provide a better hip-to-waist ratio. Fat transfer can be combined with the hourglass tummy tuck technique, where fat is removed from the abdomen and then injected in the hip area to provide a better shape and a nicer body profile.

Many times, these procedures are also combined with buttock augmentation. There are many different techniques that I use, depending on your needs and skin tone, among other things.

Today I am going to talk about the muscle weakness that occur after pregnancies and is called diastasis recti. It is important for you to understand week4the reason for the muscle weakness that occur after pregnancy and why is important to repair this pathology during a tummy tuck. During pregnancy the slowly expanding uterus slowly stretches the abdominal musculature including the fibrous tissue. The recti muscles are a pair of muscles that expands from the lower chest all the way to the pelvic. There is fibrous tissue between these two muscles. Now this fibrous tissue also stretches during pregnancy but many times it does not return to its previous form creating a weakness in the abdominal wall. This is the reason why after pregnancy even if you do exercise you may still have a weakness of the abdominal wall. This is because the problem is not be actual muscle per se but the tissue between the muscles and exercise will not fix this problem.

During a tummy tuck the muscles are sutured together in the midline to restore them to their previous anatomical position. These allow pushing the abdominal context in, decreasing your abdominal weakness, decreasing the size of your waistline and provide you with a better result. The repair is done from the lower chest all the way to the pelvic

I hope you have understand what diastasis recti means and why is important to repair this during a tummy tuck.

The tummy tuck is a great method to tighten the abdominal muscles and eliminate excess skin and fat from the bellyshutterstock_294597116 so that it becomes even and toned. Like every surgery, the tummy tuck has its own downsides, with scarring on the abdomen being one of the prominent ones. If you have zero tolerance for scarring, you might want to rethink your decision to undergo a tummy tuck procedure.

Tummy tuck candidates may be concerned about the appearance of scars after the procedure, but it is important to understand that if the procedure is performed by a highly qualified, experienced, and skilled plastic surgeon, the visibility of the scars can be reduced. A proficient plastic surgeon will place the tummy tuck incisions carefully, so they are less visible.

The appearance of scars after the tummy tuck also depends on the methods your plastic surgeon uses. Your surgeon can take some solid steps to make certain that the scars are perfectly placed and thin, so that even when you wear a bikini, the scars will not be noticeable.

Full tummy tuck scarring

When it comes to a full tummy tuck, the incision normally starts from one hipbone and ends on the other hipbone, and so does the scar. The incision can either be in a U-cut or V-cut outline, so the scarring is concealed in a bikini. Your plastic surgeon will decide on the shape and extent of the incision based on your expectations and the extent of improvement required. Your surgeon may make the incisions with great care, but it is important for you to discuss it with the surgeon before the surgery. You must know where the incisions will be placed and how the scarring will appear.

Mini tummy tuck scarring

In the mini tummy tuck, your plastic surgeon can place the scars as low as feasible; they can be concealed in the pubic bone region. This procedure removes extra skin from the abdomen below the belly button area, and no incision is made around the belly button. The extent of a mini tummy tuck scar depends on the amount of skin your plastic surgeon removes from the area.

Remember, scars are more prominent, longer, and higher in the case of a full tummy tuck than in a mini tummy tuck. However, you can easily conceal any of them with underwear or a bikini. If you have already undergone a C-section, the new scars may be fused into the existing scars.

It is important to understand that tummy tuck scars may require more than 12 months to diminish as much as possible. Your plastic surgeon may try to make the incisions as carefully as possible, but there’s no assurance. It is important to follow your surgeon’s guidelines religiously to have the best chance of a successful tummy tuck surgery with minimal scarring.

A tummy tuck is an invasive procedure where the skin is excised and the abdominal muscles are tightened, recreating a nice figure, particularly if you have an hourglass tummy tuck. Patients may have the general impression shutterstock_383564032that after surgery, you should stay in bed and not do anything at all. This is absolutely not true; beds are for sick people and not for patients who have had cosmetic surgery. I recommend that my patients start moving around the same day after a tummy tuck. You need to move to improve the blood flow from the legs; if you are not moving around, you can have serious complications including a blood clot. The surgery causes inflammation everywhere, and your heart and vital organs are working harder to withstand the stress of the surgery. When there is inflammation, the blood gets very thick and the body is in a hypercoagulable state, which can result in a blood clot. Also, when you stay in bed, particularly if you are not lying in the right anatomical position, you can develop atelectasis, which is a small collapse of the alveolus of the lung and makes it more likely for you to have respiratory problems and pneumonia.

 

I recommend that my patients walk around four or five times a day after surgery for about five to 10 minutes. Get out of bed, go to the kitchen, stay active, but do not lift anything heavy. The more active and mobile you are, the faster you will recover, since you are helping the lymphatic system to drain fluid as well as helping the body heal faster by improving perfusion in the legs and other areas.

There is a set of rules to be followed after any cosmetic surgery procedure that will ensure a better and faster recovery for the patient. Starting with the day the surgery is performed, for the next few weeks or even months,shutterstock_94533061 you must follow the doctor’s recommendations.

After you leave the clinic, you will be required to take it slow for a time to allow the body to recover. But even the day you get home, the doctor will recommend you take short walks around the house, garden, or neighborhood. Walking will help with the recovery process and prevent potential complications like blood clots. Slight discomfort is normal for the first few days or weeks after the surgery, depending on the type of procedure you had done.

Another important recommendation that should not be overlooked is wearing a girdle after some types of surgery. Many ask why the girdle is essential for post-operative recovery and why all the doctors insist on it. Aside from the fact that the girdle will help decrease swelling and lumpiness, it will also provide a better shape after the procedure. Some will only be required to wear it for a few weeks, but for better results it is recommended to wear the girdle for four or even five months after your cosmetic surgery.

Wearing the girdle is not painful, and most patients don’t even mention discomfort. It has the unique capacity to reduce edemas, compress the skin, and stimulate the draining of fluids. The girdle is required to be worn day and night after the surgery for at least a month. When the doctor allows it, you can start wearing the girdle for only 12 hours a day. For your comfort and improved aesthetic results, it is recommended you wear the girdle for as long as your doctor advises you to.

There are always some patients who decide to stop wearing the girdle as soon as they feel like they have recovered, without understanding the benefits and the importance of keeping the girdle on for an extended period of time. If you feel like you really need to stop wearing the girdle because it is too tight and it is causing itchiness or a burning sensation, see your doctor before doing anything else. The solution to your issue might be as easy as loosening the girdle. As we always say, it is crucial to discuss everything with your doctor, who has the knowledge and experience to explain things in detail and give you the best choices that will ensure an optimal recovery time and long-lasting results.

Wearing the girdle is an important step in the recovery process, just as crucial as taking the antibiotics that were prescribed for you or avoiding lifting heavy things. Your doctor will be the one to advise you on the appropriate time to wear the girdle, so always follow his recommendations.
