Lipo Info

Liposuction is an elective cosmetic surgery procedure that has become more popular among both me and women. Liposuction is well suited for men and women who are a relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of the body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to diet or exercise.
This procedure is a great solution to eliminate these troubling areas. It is possible to undergo liposuction at most any age, but you will obtain the best results if your skin has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following the procedure. The best candidates for liposuction are those patients that have localized fat or wish to contour any of the following areas; cheeks, upper arms, breast or chest areas, abdomen and waist, hips and buttocks, inner and outer thighs, calves and ankles.
The way liposuction is performed is that first a small hollow tube, called a cannula is inserted through a tiny incision. The incisions are usually less than one-quarter inch in length and is placed so that it will be discrete. Guided by the surgeon, the suction device is vacuums out the unwanted fat. The entire length of the surgery will take anywhere between one to three hours. After surgery you will not look any better for the first few days. It is important after surgery to move around to promote blood circulation. You will notice swelling and bruising after surgery. Swelling will begin to subside a week following surgery, while bruising may last two to three weeks after surgery. You may return to work a few days following the procedure. After a few weeks you can shop for your new clothes for that slimmer bod!

Mommy Makeover

Becoming a mom is one of the greatest joys in the world. But it can also cause the a good deal of stress to a woman’s body. To make room for the baby, the skin grows which can lead to stretch marks, the muscles of the abdomen can stretch, and the breast can lose their volume. In some cases even cellulite and weight gain can occur that diet and exercise do not help.

Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures that are designed to treat each individual's needs. These procedures can includ: California breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction. A flat and well toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through weight control and exercise. Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure performed to remove excess skin and fatty tissues from the abdominal. The procedure can also restore weakened or separated muscles that will create a smoother and firmer abdomen.

One of the other common procedures to do with a mommy makeover is a breast augmentation. During pregnancy, the breasts will change and enlarge as they prepare to store and make milk. After breast feeding a baby for several months, many women begin to notice that their breasts have shrunk and even sagging in their beast has occurred. There are two types of implants a woman can choose from. First, are saline implants. Saline implants have a silicone rubber shell that are inflated to the desired size with a sterile saline. The second type of implant is a silicone implant. Silicone implants have a silicone rubber shell that is filled with a fixed amount of silicone gel. During the consultation you will also discuss the placement of the implant, and where the incision will be made with the doctor. The mommy makeover is a great way to jump start a new you!

Rhinoplasty Issues

Armed Forces

In many ways, military personnel and their families stand out from the rest of us. They tend to have an usual sense of valor and honor. They are willing to make sacrifices for higher goals. But in other ways, many are similar to the rest of us. Some are concerned with their appearance. They may want a slimmer tummy. They may want their midsection tightened following pregnancy. And they may want to get rid of fine lines in the face.

This is where military plastic surgery comes into play. There are some organizations that will provide discounts to members of the armed forces and their families. It does seem like the least that can be done for these people who give so much and ask so little in return.
