FAT GRAFTING FOR AN HOURGLASS FIGURE

January 11th, 2017

 fat grafting for hourglass figureThe fat grafting procedure to achieve an hourglass figure involves the transfer of your body’s own fat to your buttocks with the goal of giving you a well shaped, attractive, and larger bottom.

During this procedure, liposuction will first be used to remove fat from your stomach, back, and thighs, and then it will be injected into your bottom. This will enhance your hip-to-waist proportion, which is the most important goal in the fat grafting procedure for an hourglass figure.

Fat grafting for an hourglass figure is more effective than the Brazilian butt lift, which only enhances the protrusion of your butt. Fat grafting enhances protrusion and also provides you an ideally shaped bottom with an excellent hip-to-waist ratio.

It is important for you to go to a plastic surgeon who is highly experienced, qualified, and skilled in performing fat grafting for an hourglass figure. There are many plastic surgeons who are experienced in fat grafting, but not in using fat grafting to give you an hourglass body. Women with the hourglass body boast larger behinds, large thighs, and voluptuous breasts.

Your surgeon may boost the size of your bottom from the side with fat grafting; however, he or she may not necessarily be able to reshape your body into an hourglass. Only an experienced, innovative, and skilled plastic surgeon can do this perfectly.

Besides enhancing your bottom, the fat grafting for an hourglass body involves the injection of fat into your hips, which is very critical in achieving your dream figure. If implemented with precision, the injection of fat into this important anatomical region can create the hourglass effect from the back as well as from the front.

In order to qualify for this procedure, you must have extra fat in particular regions of your body, such as your rear, belly, sides, or thighs. A woman who wears size 11 to 13 in dresses is an ideal candidate for the procedure. Thin women size 2 to 4 cannot qualify; if you are thin, you should gain weight before going for the fat grafting procedure to achieve an hourglass figure.

Other factors that determine your eligibility for the procedure include the realism of your expectations from the procedure, the personal goals you want to achieve with the result, your skin tone, your lifestyle, your smoking and drinking frequency (if any), your past surgeries (if any), and your overall health condition. Age is not a big problem, but the older you are, the lower the chances of achieving the same results as a younger woman who undergoes the procedure.

LIPOSUCTION OF THE MONS DURING A TUMMY TUCK

November 29th, 2016


liposuction in the mons areaI perform hundreds of tummy tuck revisions a year, and one of the main concerns I see from patients is about insufficient liposuction of the mons area. What is the mons? The mons essentially is the FUPA, the fat that accumulates above the vagina when you gain weight after pregnancy or for any reason. The problem is that the tummy tuck will give you a very flat abdomen, but the mons is not part of the abdomen, but a surrounding aesthetic unit. When you have a tummy tuck, your belly is going to be flat and your waist will be much smaller with liposuction, but without liposuction of the mons, you are going to have a significant bulge around the genitalia area. So, when you wear jeans or a bikini, there will be a bulge that is aesthetically not pleasant.

Performing a liposuction of the mons is essential to get a good tummy tuck result and also to improve your satisfaction after the surgery.

ROLE OF DRAINS AFTER A TUMMY TUCK

October 28th, 2016

TUMMY TUCK SURGERYOne of the most popular plastic surgery procedures is the tummy tuck. We use it to remodel the lower and middle abdomen and remove the extra skin and fat that can be a result of weight loss or pregnancy. The tummy tuck is a procedure recommended to both men and women who have sagging skin or muscles on the abdomen.

What Happens after the Tummy Tuck Procedure?

As soon as the tummy tuck procedure is over, you will have to wear elastic bandages or a corset to speed and help the healing process. The corset will be required for about six weeks. Also, for a few days after the surgery, usually three to seven days, there will be a few thin drain tubes to eliminate the fluids that naturally accumulate where the surgery was performed. The pain after the procedure is moderate in intensity, and it will be controlled with medication. Sometimes a slight pain can persist for a few weeks due to small nerves affected during the surgery, but it usually disappears in two to three weeks. In some cases, the doctor will prescribe oral antibiotics to prevent infection and anticoagulants to prevent thrombotic complications.

What Is the Purpose of the Drains after a Tummy Tuck Procedure?

For approximately seven days or less, you will have one or two extremely thin drain tubes inserted to eliminate the liquids that accumulate in the body after the surgery. The drains will prevent seroma (a collection of fluids that creates a pocket beneath the surface of the skin). It is not at all unusual for a seroma to form after surgery, and without the use of drains it is almost a certainty. Seromas need to be surgically removed, so the role of the drains after the tummy tuck procedure is to prevent this.

The forming of seromas after tummy tuck procedures continues to be a frustrating issue for both doctors and patients. Over time, researchers have found that seromas are more likely when the patient suffers from obesity. However, these fluids between the skin and the abdominal wall can be easily removed using drains. This is why the drains are mandatory after a tummy tuck procedure. There is no pain or significant discomfort associated with the drains, and patients have not complained about any issues or complications related to them.

Doing your best to follow the doctor’s hygiene recommendations is a must for any tummy tuck patient, as well as giving the body time to recover after the surgery. It is also recommended that you spend the first two weeks at home to avoid physical effort, and during the next six weeks, resume your daily activities step by step while still avoiding challenging activities.

WHAT IS AN EXTENDED TUMMY TUCK ?

October 21st, 2016


TUMMY TUCK There are different types of tummy tuck depending on the amount of excessive skin and degree of muscle weakness you have. During an hourglass tummy tuck, the abdominal wall is tightened and the excess skin is removed; liposuction is also performed and fat transfer is done on the hips. Every single patient who comes to my practice wants to have a tummy tuck with a 2 cm incision. This is absolutely not possible. The amount of excess skin you have will determine how long your scar is going to be. Patients have this perception that anybody can have a mini tummy tuck or a modified tummy tuck to improve their abdomen, but this is not true. For most patients the scar goes from hip to hip, but in certain situations, like patients who have lost a lot of skin or patients who have gained too much weight and have stretch marks all the way to the flank and beyond, the scar needs to be extended toward the back and sometimes toward the midline on the back. For the most part, it just goes posteriorly for about 8 to 10 cm. This is what is called an extended tummy tuck: where the scar goes past the hips and toward the back. This is necessary because if you do not excise the excess skin, you are going to develop bunching and puckering of the skin on the sides, leaving you with an unsatisfactory outcome. You need to be realistic about what a tummy tuck can do for you.

In the event that you need to have an extended tummy tuck, you need to let the surgeon do his job, because if you try to minimize the scar, your results are not going to be as good and you are going to have excessive skin in these areas. During your consultation, I will assess the amount of excess skin that you are going to have, and based on experience, I can tell you before surgery where to expect the location of the scar and how long the scar is going to be. If you are not willing to accept the necessary steps to recreate your hourglass shape, including a longer scar, I prefer not to do your surgery.

TUMMY TUCK COMPLICATIONS AND OBESITY

October 14th, 2016

OBESITY AND TUMMY TUCK We have previously discussed how the risk of surgical complications increases steadily with a body mass index (BMI) above 35. It is very important to be within a normal weight prior to surgery to help prevent complications like seroma, infection, and slow wound healing, among other things. When a tummy tuck is performed, a lower abdominal incision is done and then dissection is continued toward the midline; the abdominal wall is tightened, the excess skin is removed, and the incision is closed with multiple-layer sutures. What is the importance of losing weight before this surgery? Well, when the lower abdominal incision is performed, the blood supply to the abdomen comes from the top. Before surgery, there is a dual blood supply coming from the bottom and the top, but after the incision is performed, the blood supply that comes from the bottom part is essentially compromised. When patients are overweight, perfusion is diminished. This is why an overweight patient who has a tummy tuck has a higher chance of slow wound healing.

Another consideration is the belly button. When somebody has gained weight, the belly button is elongated; because it is attached to the abdominal wall, it actually gets longer the more fat you have in your abdomen. This can cause problems with wound healing. If you look at this diagram, the cylinder is the belly button, which extends from the level of the skin to the level of the abdominal wall. If you gain weight, the belly button gets much longer. When a tummy tuck is performed and the belly button is detached, the longer the belly button, the less blood will reach the end of the belly button. This is why there is a higher risk of losing the belly button and having wound healing problems around it when you are overweight. The important thing to understand is that because the belly button itself is a scar from birth, wounds around it are not going to heal very well.

The bottom line is that before any cosmetic surgery, you need to understand that having a weight within the normal range is important to avoid wound healing problems around the belly button or in any area where an incision is made.
