Laser Tight Liposuction Versus Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction used to be the only choice when it came to choosing a fat-reducing procedure. Now there are so many choices, it can be overwhelming. In this blog we’ll look at two common types of liposuction, Laser Tight, and Traditional, and see how they stack up. Laser Tight Liposuction Laser tight liposuction is a relatively new procedure, which involves: Tiny incisions made at the problem sites. Probes connected to a a-980 nm diode laser inserted through incisions. The lasers essentially melt and vaporize fat cells, resulting in fat loss. New collagen is produced, increasing skin’s tone and texture. The laser cause the collagen to contract, resulting in the tightening of skin. Laser liposuction has many benefits, and may even be able to replace a tummy tuck. It is safe, and since the incisions are so small, it is minimally invasive. Since it eliminates fat cells, it has the results of traditional liposuction combined with the tightening and toning of a tummy tuck. A common worry when it comes to traditional liposuction is sagging skin around the liposuction site. Many women are disappointed with their liposuction results because of this. Since laser liposuction sculpts and tightens the skin, while dramatically reducing fat cells, there’s no need to worry about saggy…

What Is An Endoscopic Forehead Lift?

A drooping brow line, or deep “worry” lines in the forehead can age your face, obstruct vision, or even give you a permanent look of anger or sternness. Until recently, the only procedure to correct this was a traditional forehead lift, or browplasty. There are several types of forehead lift, which include: A Direct Browlift: This removes portions of skin and muscle directly above the browline. It lifts the brows only without addressing wrinkles in the forehead. Incisions are hidden in the brow hair. A Mid-forehead Lift: This addresses deeper forehead wrinkles, and a heavy, drooping brow line. A mid-forehead lift removes fat, skin, and occasionally muscle. Incisions are made in the wrinkles themselves, and the procedure smooths the forehead and elevates the brow. A Coronal Forehead Lift: This procedure elevates the entire forehead and brow. Unlike the other two procedures, a coronal forehead lift doesn’t require any facial incisions. An incision is made ear-to-ear across the top of the head, and hidden in the scalp. Patients may also choose to use facial fillers such as BOTOX® to achieve temporary enhancements. An Endoscopic forehead lift is a newer technique with many benefits. Unlike the procedures listed above, this type of lift uses a series of small incisions rather than one…

Is A Tummy Tuck an Option For Long-Term Weight Loss?

For those who struggle to lose weight and keep it off, there’s good news: a tummy tuck can provide far more than just an aesthetic solution. It can actually lead to long-term weight loss. What is a Tummy Tuck? Even if you eat well and exercise, loose skin and excess flab in the abdominal area can be stubborn. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat, creating a flat, contoured abdomen and tightening your abdominal muscles. An abdominoplasty can last between 1-5 hours depending on the area of the surgery. During the procedure, your doctor will contour the skin, tissue, and muscles in your abdomen, as well as removing any excess skin and fat, and tightening the abdominal wall. A patient will usually lose about five pounds of tissue during a tummy tuck. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, and usually requires a night’s stay in the hospital. Though recovery time can last several weeks, patients are usually thrilled with the results of their abdominoplasty. How Does a Tummy Tuck Encourage Weight Loss? Many people experience significant weight loss following a tummy tuck. Since the abdominal wall is tightened, patients usually feel fuller faster following the procedure. While there may not be a great deal of actual…

Advantages Of Combining Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Plastic surgeons are frequently asked about the possibility of combining cosmetic surgery procedures in order to save time, both during the procedure and the recovery. Certain procedures can be easily combined (for instance, a tummy tuck and a breast lift). While it is not recommended to combine procedures that aren’t complementary (like a tummy tuck and rhinoplasty), there are many advantages to combining procedures that do work well together! Practicality By combining cosmetic surgery procedures, you can save time in every part of the process. The process of cosmetic surgery includes: Consultations Surgery (usually performed under general anaesthesia) Recovery By choosing to have multiple procedures done at once, you only have to go through the above process once. Surgeons usually only combine procedures that are located on the same part of the body, in order to avoid moving the patient during surgery, and for overall safety. Examples of often combined procedures include: Facelift, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, chin or cheek augmentation. Tummy tuck, breast augmentation or reduction, liposuction. Financial Benefits Combining procedures can cut costs for the surgeon and their clinic. If you choose to combine procedures, it means that only one consultation is needed, one hospital bed, and one anesthesiologist. The result of this likely mean slightly lowered costs for…
