What is Liposuction?

Liposuction

Sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. 

What Liposuction Can Treat

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

What Liposuction Can't Do?

  Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite—the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks—or loose saggy skin. 


Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a Facelift, Breast Reduction or a Tummy Tuck

Liposuction Candidates

Ideal Liposuction Candidates Are:

 

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Nonsmokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring

Liposuction Results

 The results of liposuction will be long lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. 


 As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Liposuction Recovery

 During your liposuction recovery, a compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas once your procedure is completed. 


These help to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid. 

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty

 Also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. 


A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. 

The most Common Causes of This Include:

 

  • Aging
  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prior surgery
  • Significant fluctuations in weight

What Tummy Tuck Surgery Can't Do

 A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. 


Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight.  

Tummy Tuck Candidates

 

  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen

Tummy Tuck Results

 The final results of Tummy Tuck surgery may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. 

Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident in your new slimmer profile. 

Your tummy tuck will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight. 

Tummy Ruck Recovery

 During your Tummy Tuck Recovery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and you may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and support your abdomen as it heals following surgery. 

Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. 

Fat Transfer to Buttocks

Brazilian Butt Lift

 Buttock augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "Brazilian butt lift" when fat transfer is involved, uses butt implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of both to increase the size of your behind. 

 

  • Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks
  • Improve the balance of your figure
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Buttock Augmentation Recovery

 You will be asked to avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks (some surgeons prefer longer). 


 You will also be encouraged to sleep face down or on your side. When you do have to sit, you will have to use a pillow or cushion placed behind the legs (hamstring muscles) to help raise the buttocks, avoiding pressure onto the fat grafts. 

You will also be provided with a support garment that will apply even compression to the areas that were treated with liposuction. 

Buttock Augmentation Results

 Your buttock augmentation results are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. 


Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery. 


 If your procedure was performed with fat transfer, it can take up to a year to see your final results. Some of the fat that leads to the initial shape after surgery will be reabsorbed by your body. 

Mommy Makeover

What is a Mommy Makeover?

 The goal of a Mommy Makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman's body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy. 


There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. 


There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:

  • Desired amount of restoration
  • Placement of the incisions
  • Type of implant used

Mommy Makeover Recovery

 Following your mommy makeover surgery, gauze or bandages will be applied to your incisions. An elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts. A compression garment may also be used to control swelling in the abdomen, waist and buttocks.You will be given specific instructions that may include:

  • How to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
  • When to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
