WHAT IS THE HOURGLASS TUMMY TUCK?

September 23rd, 2016

WHAT IS DIASTASIS RECTI The hourglass tummy tuck is the only tummy tuck technique that will give you not just a flat abdomen, but an hourglass shape. It is a combination of three different procedures:

  1.   A traditional tummy tuck.
  2.   Liposuction of the abdomen, flank, sides, and back.
  3.   Fat transfer to the hips.

Studies have shown that about 8% of women have an hourglass shape. This means that the ratio between the waist and hip area is more than 0.7. Most patients require different surgical interventions to recreate the hourglass figure. During this procedure, I perform all the techniques of a traditional tummy tuck: cutting the excess skin and tightening the abdominal wall. I also perform liposuction on the back, abdomen, flanks, and sides, and transfer the fat collected from all of these different anatomical areas into the hips. The fat is processed and placed in syringes, and then, using a 3 mm injection cannula, it is injected in the hip area in multiple passes. This process requires a lot of experience and technique. There is not a lot of space for mistakes, because the anatomical area is small and the amount of fat that you can put in is limited by the space itself. By changing the proportion of the hip area, you can have a better result. Performing a fat transfer to the hips is a must for the hourglass tummy tuck technique. By applying these steps and creating a better hip-to-waist ratio, you are going to have a nicer result and your satisfaction will improve significantly.

WHAT IS DIASTASIS RECTI?

September 16th, 2016

The dream of most women after giving birth is to jump straight back into their before-pregnancyWHAT IS DIASTASIS RECTI body. But it took nine months for the body to change and it will also take some time to get back into shape after delivery. The desire to be the same woman you were before the pregnancy, with the same body, is powerful, and many would go to tremendous lengths to achieve that. But it is essential to understand that your body will need time to recover, and even if you choose cosmetic surgery, you will still have to wait for about six months before getting that tummy tuck procedure that can help with abdominal fat in excess.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body will go through several changes. Some of the most common situations that can happen after giving birth are abdominal skin tissue in excess, tummy itchiness, stretch marks on the tummy and hips, hair loss, and diastasis recti. Diastasis recti is also known as muscle weakness of the abdominal wall. Some women will experience one or more of these, while some will have none.

After giving birth, the tummy will look like a deflated balloon, being almost as large as the day before delivery, but softer and sagging a bit. This can last for up to six weeks, even if before the pregnancy your tummy was toned and flat.

 

Before you start exercising, it is important to consider that most doctors recommend resuming physical exercise six weeks after giving birth or more, depending on your condition and state of recovery. Not talking to your doctor before starting exercise again can cause more trouble,especially if you suffer from diastasis recti.

What causes diastasis recti?

Aside from its occurrence in pregnant women, diastasis recti can also occur in newborns,specially premature ones, because the abdominal wall is not developed completely and might not seal entirely down the midline.

During pregnancy or after giving birth, the abdominal wall can be put under a lot of pressure because of the uterus growth. The research shows that women over the age of 35 are more likely to develop diastasis recti, while a child’s high weight at birth or multiple pregnancies can also be considered risk factors. Diastasis recti is essentially a separation of the tissue between the muscles.

While diastasis recti is not a life-threatening condition, it is important you seek help and discuss it with your doctor. In most cases, the doctor will recommend special exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscle wall. Most of the time, this does not help. You can just as well have a tummy tuck cosmetic procedure, which will help eliminate all that excess skin and fat on your abdomen and also strengthen the abdominal wall.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR LIPOSUCTION

September 2nd, 2016

Liposuction is one of the trendy ways to rejuvenate your body. The procedure gets rid of extra and unnecessary fat you might have added over the years.liposuction The procedure is normally performed on the hips, tummy, thighs, bum, or face.

So, have you made up your mind to undergo liposuction? Well, you still have time to think again. The procedure requires rigorous preparation. You’ll find yourself storing supplies, feeling nervous, and experiencing emotional disturbance. It can be a very hectic time for most people,but with the right preparation, you can beat the stress and make it convenient.

But, how exactly do you prepare for liposuction? Your doctor can provide valuable tips to get ready for the procedure, but it is always wise to take the lead yourself. So, here’s how you prepare for liposuction:

  • Before the procedure, make sure to ask your doctor to revisit your medical history. Also,discuss with the surgeon any medications you are currently taking.
  • You will be asked to undergo lab tests.
  • Make sure to confirm your surgery date, time, and place with your surgeon.
  • If you are a smoker, you will also be required to quit smoking. When you stop smoking, it actually helps the healing process and decreases the risk of complications during the surgery.
  • If you are taking aspirin, supplements, or anti-inflammatory drugs, you should stop using them two to three weeks before your surgery.
  • If you are a regular alcohol user, make sure to decrease your intake or stop it completely. Alcohol hampers the healing process by decreasing your liver’s capability to metabolize medicines.
  • Eat well, stay stress-free, sleep well, and stay away from people who are ill.
  • If you are pregnant, don’t think about undergoing liposuction or any other surgery.
  • When you go for liposuction, you need to arrange to have someone take care of chores at home. If you have a child or pet, make certain to arrange care for them too.
  • Make sure to have a loved one by your side during your recovery period, especially during the first 24 hours after the surgery. Should you wish, you can hire an experienced nurse to take care of you during the recovery period.
  • Don’t forget to ask your surgeon what precautionary measures you’ll be required to take after the procedure and for how long.
  • Ask your surgeon about the type of anesthesia that will be used for sedation, and be mentally ready to cope with any dizziness and nausea after the procedure.
  • Make sure to take any drugs your surgeon may prescribe for you before and after the surgery.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

 

With the right preparations, you will not regret undergoing this procedure, and you will recover fast. Do not be afraid to discuss all of your concerns with your surgeon prior to the procedure.

LIPOSUCTION IS NOT A WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM

July 27th, 2016

Many of us lie awake thinking about becoming slim overnight. In recent years, obesity has affected more and more people,Slide1 and a liposuction procedure might sometimes look like the ideal solution to get rid of extra fat on the thighs, knees, or abdomen. But liposuction is not a weight loss program: it is a procedure meant to improve your body contours by removing fat deposits in areas of your body that are difficult to address with exercise.

If you go to any plastic surgeon to ask for liposuction in order to lose weight, they will all tell you the same thing: liposuction is not a diet, and you cannot undergo liposuction to lose weight. It is used to remodel the body after a weight loss program, after pregnancy, or just to correct a genetic disposition.

If there were a general remedy for obesity that we could all use with no side effects, no one would ever diet or go to the gym again. But the only way to lose weight and maintain the results over time is through dieting and exercising. Plastic surgery and liposuction can help improve the results and give your body the shape you desire.

Some might argue that liposuction is a sort of localized weight loss procedure, as it targets fat in particular areas of the body; while it might look like this is true, weight loss is usually measured in kilograms and with a scale. In the case of liposuction, we measure the results in centimeters and with the mirror.

It is essential to mention that liposuction doesn’t remove visceral fat, which is the most dangerous type in obese people. The fat that can be eliminated through liposuction is not correlated with weight loss. During the first few months after the liposuction procedure is performed, it is highly possible that the patient’s weight will stay the same, because the volume of fat removed is replaced by fluids that are gradually eliminated during the recovery period.

We would also like to discuss the difference between liposuction and the surgical procedures recommended for obesity. Procedures like the gastric sleeve have the sole goal of controlling obesity by reducing the patient’s ability to ingest food. The stomach is cut to become much smaller, and large meals are no longer an option after the procedure. Reducing the quantity of food is meant to reduce weight in time. After one of these kinds of procedures, patients might lose weight and find that they are left with a lot of extra skin or localized fat that they just can’t get rid of. This is when plastic surgery can help with liposuction or a tummy tuck, as well as other procedures meant to smooth the contours of the body and improve the appearance.

EXPECTATIONS AFTER A TUMMY TUCK

July 13th, 2016

The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure where the doctor removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower areas of your abdomen. This method can significantly improve the look of your tummy by eliminating the obnoxious wrinkled shutterstock_25671454skin that sometimes appears as a result of a serious weight loss program or after pregnancy. Your tummy will look firmer and tighter, not to mention that some stretch marks may also be eliminated in the process. However, the tummy tuck procedure is not meant to get rid of all the stretch marks on your abdomen. Depending on the position of the stretch marks, some will be removed with the excess skin, but others will remain where they are.

The procedure is recommended to both men and women who have extra skin on the abdomen and find it difficult or impossible to get rid of it through dieting or exercising. Also, it is a procedure that appeals to many women who have just given birth and are left with what can look like a pouch of fat at the stomach level.

Just like with any plastic surgery procedure, setting up realistic expectations is vital to the success of the operation. You need to know that after the surgery, for about a month, you will need to wear an elastic belt, and physical effort should be avoided at all costs. For a few days after the procedure, your abdomen may be swollen, and numbness and bruises can occur. Medication can and will be prescribed to control the discomfort, pain, and weakness. In three to six months, the scars will become less and less visible, and while they will never completely disappear, it will be tough to see them in a year’s time; you will probably need a magnifier.

If you want to have this procedure done in preparation for a significant event in your life (your wedding day, for example), you will need to take into consideration that the estimated results will be visible in about four months’ time: no sooner. Also, for a while after the surgery you may find it difficult to resume your daily activities at the same intensity; you will be recovering from abdominal surgery, after all.

When discussing your expectations with the doctor, it is important to tell him all the special conditions you might face. For example, taking care of an infant with no help around can be quite difficult, if not impossible, immediately after the tummy tuck procedure. Your doctor will paint a very realistic picture of what to expect after the tummy tuck surgery. While your abdomen will definitely look much better and you will fit into clothes that you never dreamt of before the surgery, it won’t bring back your body from before the pregnancy or before you started putting on weight. There are changes your body went through that make it difficult for it to jump back to the previous shape instantly. But a tummy tuck combined with exercise and a proper diet can lead to an even better-looking body in time!
