Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to take care of waistline problems. In such cases, you may wish to consider a tummy tuck(technically called abdominoplasty). This procedure surgically removes excess skin and fatty deposits from the abdomen, and also repositions abdomen muscles into a tighter formation. This procedure is also helpful in remedying the vertical separation of abdomen muscles known as Rectus divarication, which can occur following pregnancy. Reasons for considering a tummy tuck:
Inability of dieting and exercise to improve the abdomen area
Excessive accumulation of skin following weight loss
Loss of skin elasticity or diastases (loose abdomen muscles) due to pregnancy
Unsightly skin and fat deposits
Weakened and separated abdominal muscles
For many patients, liposuction can be performed at the time of their tummy tuck procedure to help them attain a smooth, firm abdominal look.
In a breast lift (also known as mastopexy), droopy breasts are given a lift to improve the nipple position as well as improve the shape of the breast. It is often done in combination with nipple reduction or areolar reduction to improve the aesthetics of the breast. Breast volume can also be augmented at the same time, this is known as an augmentation mastopexy.There are many ways to perform a breast lift. The goal of all the procedures is to lift the nipple to the desired height and reshape the breast into a more aesthetic form.In some patients, this goal can be achieved with augmentation using breast implants alone. More commonly, incisions are needed around the nipple to lift it up to the desired height.If you have a lot of excess skin, incisions may be needed on the breast to remove the excess skin.
Liposuction, a cosmetic procedure in plastic surgery, wherein excessive fat is removed from the body of the patient and a more desirable shape / contour is achieved by the surgeon matching the body of the patient. Excessive fat is a phenomenon common to significant percentage of the population, may be because of life style, or due to hereditary reasons or it’s prevalent in cases even where the person does regular exercise and or lives a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction is most preferable in the later situation. It's a procedure of the least risk and done under general anesthesia, by which the unwanted deposits of fat or the excessive fat is sucked out from the chosen area. Unwanted fat often can cause low self esteem because of poor body image and thus can result in huge dent to the self confidence of a person. Male gynecomastia can be a perfect example here. Good results with a aesthetic improvement of the shape of the body part after the removal of the undesirable fat has played a significant role in the dramatic improvement of the self-confidence of the patient
Facial contouring treatments balance out the top, middle and bottom proportions ideally, accentuating your features in perfect symmetry. A non-surgical solution is to elongate the chin, which helps to create a more balanced and symmetrical face. This can be done by using dermal fillers. Several brands are available and these fillers are FDA and HSA- approved, and have a history of safety. The aim of facial contouring is to restore a softer, more youthful look to your face and to enhance your natural features, rather than radically changing it. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because these soft tissue fillers can create volume for the chin and moulded to make it shaper instantly. Treatments are quick, generally taking around 30 minutes and provide results faster than a surgery. However, these treatments aren’t permanent, they must be repeated and maintained.
