Are you unhappy with how your body looks? Often if we don’t like how we feel in our own skin, it can affect our confidence and self-esteem. There are a variety of procedures out there that can assist you in helping you feel the best you.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture, or suction assisted lipectomy is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Through small incisions, liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, neck, and upper arms that have not responded to diet and exercise. The procedure is performed with the tumescent technique, which involves the injection of fluid into the treatment area to aid in the smooth removal of fat. Liposuction can be enhanced with the use of ultrasound, and ultrasound assisted liposuction (UAL) is often used to remove fat from hard to treat locations.
This procedure is common after people lose a large amount of weight, or done to speed up the weight loss process. During liposuction, fat cells are sucked away from under the skin, with the goal being to improve the contour and proportion of the patient’s body. The advantages of liposuction include:
- It can treat multiple larger areas all in one procedure: thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen and waist, Upper and lower arms, back, chest, legs, and other places
- One treatment may be all you need to fix your problem areas
- Better results than other body contouring procedures
During the liposuction procedure, your surgeon will administer anesthesia, making a series of incisions, and inserting a thin tube to suck out the amount of fatty tissue. People may consider liposuction or plastic surgery as a quick fix, however, all surgery has the possibility of risk factors and complications, so be sure to consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon on what to expect.
A Brazilian butt lift enhances the size and shape of a patient's butt so that it better fits his or her figure, hopefully resulting in an attractive, more full and prominent rear end. In order to perform Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, fat from areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, hips, and thighs, is removed through liposuction, and reinjected into the butt.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is so popular because it transforms your entire shape. During the procedure, fat from a donor site, is taken from your abdominal or thigh region. The fat is then filtered and carefully put into your butt in a manner consistent with the appearance you are looking for. Highly skilled surgeons can make minor adjustments to your butt or even significant changes, given your body type and desire. Brazilian butt lifts are not a minimally invasive surgical procedure, and it is important to take care of yourself afterwards to maximize the outcome of your Brazilian butt lift.
Typically, to recover fully from Brazilian Butt Lift surgery it takes about 2-4 weeks. It is important to note that everybody’s bodies respond and heal differently to certain procedures.
We all have those days where we don’t feel confident in the way that we look. This feeling is especially present with women who have not fully lost baby weight after pregnancy. For women, our bodies are always changing. After pregnancy, many women find that they don’t look or feel like themselves anymore. Stretched out skin and muscles, breasts that sag or lose volume, and pockets of fat that weren’t there before can put a real damper on your confidence.
The mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore various parts of the body, particularly after pregnancy. It commonly includes a tummy tuck (to tighten abdominal muscles, and remove loose skin and fat in the abdomen) and breast augmentation (boob job) or a breast lift (to address breasts that have deflated or sagged). Liposuction may also be performed to help with body contouring.
The term Labiaplasty refers to a procedure done to rejuvenate the vagina, called vaginal rejuvenation. Labiaplasty is the aesthetic surgical correction and enhancement of the genital structures including the labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood, mons pubis, perineum, prepuce, and hymen.
During the labiaplasty procedure, excess tissue is removed from the labia, either for cosmetic reasons, but also for women who feel physical discomfort due to an enlarged or elongated labia.
An enlarged or elongated labia can make doing activities such as riding a bike and sexual intercourse extremely painful or uncomfortable. Most patients who experience symptoms from twisting and tugging of their labia generally find relief after surgery.
