PAIN AFTER LIPOSUCTION

October 7th, 2016

liposuctionLiposuction is quite a common surgical procedure that has a short recovery time in most cases.Just like with any other kind of surgery, it is important to understand that there are no hard rules as to when one will be completely recovered. Each patient may have different recommendations from the doctor as to when he or she can return to work or start exercising again, depending on age, weight, and general health condition.

Are you wondering what you can expect after liposuction?

A better-defined body, a more balanced and harmonious silhouette, and also the emotional well-being that comes with an improved appearance. When considering these, it might seem superfluous to discuss the pain,bruising, and swelling that occur during the recovery period, but it is important to know exactly what to expect after liposuction so you can mentally prepare before the procedure.

The recovery process after liposuction will require time and patience; the results will be visible in about three to six months. Most patients can resume their daily activity within a couple of days or weeks after the liposuction. Swelling and bruising are natural effects of the surgery, and they will disappear in the course of two to four weeks for some patients, while for other individuals it might take up to six months to get rid of all the swelling. Some patients experience numbness in the area where the liposuction was performed, and while it is unpleasant, it is not painful.

While some report pain after they recover from the anesthetic, medication is prescribed to control it. The pain felt is different from individual to individual and depends on how each body adjusts to the procedure. For some, it is easily manageable and barely there, while others who have a lower resistance to pain will feel it more prominently. But, as we have mentioned, it is easily controlled with medication.

It is essential for the patient to follow the recommendations of the doctor. Not allowing the body to recover before starting exercise or resuming an active lifestyle can lead to painful episodes. Also, not wearing the girdle (if recommended) may cause some level of pain that can otherwise be avoided. To avoid unnecessary pain and to speed the healing process, it is recommended that you avoid long baths, alcoholic drinks, and smoking for at least seven days after the surgery.

In short, we can say that while discomfort can be felt after the procedure is performed, it is rare that the pain is difficult to cope with. It is also important to remember that the pain (when it occurs) is short-lived. Using Arnica Montana supplements and creams can help reduce the swelling faster.

DISCOLORATION OF THE SKIN AFTER LIPOSUCTION

September 30th, 2016

DISCOLORATION OF THE SKIN LIPOSUCTIONLiposuction is a very safe procedure, but complications can occur that can produce thick scars, among other things. The skin is an amazing organ, and like many organs in the body, responds to different stimuli. Think about the eye. We can see because the cells on the eyes get stimulated by photons, allowing us to visualize everything that we see around us. The skin also responds to environmental stimulus. The skin has cells called melanocytes that determine its color. If you spend a lot of time outside, your skin can change color, or you may get a sunburn, among other things.

SDuring liposuction, fat is sucked out of the body using a hollow cannula. This fat can be reused for fat transfer later on, but the liposuction procedure creates inflammation and fluid collection. Sometimes, due to this inflammation, the cells of the skin will react and some areas of the skin can get discolored. Discoloration after liposuction is something that you do not need to worry about. If it occurs, we can use creams like hydroquinone and cocoa butter to help bleach the area completely. Understanding the possible results of liposuction is important so that if you develop a complication, you will recognize it and treat it accordingly to provide a good solution.

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.
