5 Tips To Get A Quick Weight Loss Recovery

Breast reduction surgery has increased tremendously in society over time; despite the popular belief that women are looking to make their breasts larger. Due to the pain and discomfort that women experience with larger breasts, more women choose to have excess tissue and fat removed.

Having large breasts typically causes pain in the back, shoulders, and neck, and also makes it impossible to maintain a good posture.

There are ways to help with an easier and faster recovery, just follow these tips and techniques.

Eliminating Your Breast Implants, What Happens?

For more than 50 years, breast implants have been the standard of treatment when talking about breast augmentation. During this time, manufacturers have released increasingly safe, resistant and durable implants and have greatly increased the options of choice in terms of sizes and shapes. All these facts, and many others, make breast augmentation one of the most popular, safe and successful types of Plastic Surgery in the US.

Unfortunately, not all cases of breast augmentation have happy endings, especially ones performed over a decade ago when implants were less heavily regulated. Due to complications, the integration of implants becomes difficult and complex, culminating in encapsulation or distortion processes. In other cases the patient does not manage to “integrate” the implants psychologically in their daily life, becoming a nuisance, an inconvenience and even an obstacle in social relationships. For these and other reasons, many patients end up deciding to remove (explant is t..

Fat grafting and tissue transport during rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the most common choice for any patient seeking an aesthetic improvement of their nose. In recent years, complementary techniques have been developed to improve the results of rhinoplasty, or even replace it in small cases, one of which is the use of Fat Grafting. The use of Fat Grafting in surgical rhinoplasty allows to smooth irregularities or contour deformities and asymmetries. In addition, several studies have shown that fat grafting has worked as effectively as cartilage grafts or solid implants in surgeries such as augmentation mammoplasty.

A fat graft or lipofilling in the nose can become an excellent ally during the execution of any rhinoplasty and especially during a secondary or revision rhinoplasty. The lipofilling base their versatility on the excellent combination of properties: the possibility of being used as a filler and its capacity to regenerate the tissue where it infiltrates. While fat grafting on the breasts often takes fat from other areas of the b..

Each of the kinds of breast implants clarified

Breast augmentation surgery is undoubtedly one of the top plastic surgeries in the state of Michigan in terms of popularity. One of the most important aspects of this surgery is the choice of implant, which should be made with the advice of a plastic surgeon, who will recommend the type, size, and shape most suitable for your anatomy.

Breast implants in Michigan are composed of a silicone wrap and a filling. The filling of the breast Implant can be of two types, according to its composition:

Silicone Implants: This type of breast implant is the most used and recommended. The silicone gel used is of high cohesiveness, therefore, in case of a rupture in the cover of the implant, the filling is not leaked since the cohesiveness of the gel causes it to remain inside. If the Implant is broken you will not notice a decrease in the volume of the breasts, so it is advisable to have an MRI periodically to detect breaks. In addition, the gel facilitates a much more natural appearance, both in ..

What are the various forms of rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular aesthetic surgeries in Michigan, it allows one to reduce or increase the size of their nose, change the shape of the tip or back, narrow the nostrils or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. This surgery is used when there is a disproportion between the shape of the nose and the rest of the face. In addition, congenital alterations of the nasal structure and respiratory problems can also be corrected using rhinoplasty or septoplasty.

Based on the type of technique used in surgery, rhinoplasty can be classified as open or closed. Initially, the choice of technique is based on the preferences of the surgeon and the goals of the surgery. Obviously, all Rhinoplasties and Rhinoseptoplasties in Michigan can be performed open or closed but the idea is to select the technique according to the difficulty or degree of correction that is needed in each particular case.

Breast Augmentation Utilizing Fats Grafts Defined

Although the aesthetic remodeling of breasts by fat grafting has been done for many years, in the 1980s the American Society of Plastic Surgery imposed a moratorium on this technique because it could mask or hinder the diagnosis of breast cancer. Nowadays, it is a procedure that has taken on new vigor and interest in the realm of cosmetic surgery. In this article, we provide patients with an overview of Michigan breast augmentation using fat grafts.

The technique of fat grafting (liposculpture, lipoimplantation, etc.) has improved considerably, greatly increasing the percentage of cases with good or excellent results in the medium and long term. In addition to this success, the percentage of calcifications that occur has been drastically reduced and the results differ less from those who undergo other breast procedures such as breast augmentation with silicone implants or Michigan breast reduction. Breast augmentation using fat grafts is now a reliable technique that does not mask bre..

Risks Related To Breast Augmentation & Implants

Breast augmentation surgery is generally considered a safe procedure but it is not exempt from the risks and possible complications that are inherent to any surgery. In this article, we cover the risks and rare complications of breast augmentation and breast implant surgery.

Capsular contracture
Among the complications associated with Michigan breast augmentation surgery, perhaps the most frequent is the so-called “capsular contracture” effect. The capsule is a fibrous tissue that the body forms naturally around the implant. This tissue is beneficial if its formation is correctly directed, because it acts as a support or “internal bra”.

The capsules that generate abundant fibrous tissue (grades III and IV) can cause breast deformity and pain, therefore they should be treated almost always surgically. This occurs in a very low percentage of breast implant patients (approximately 1% -2%) and occurs due to the contraction of the “pocket” that forms around the implant.

When the capsula..

Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction

What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery in which fat from different areas of the body is extracted by means of thin cannulas (2-4 mm) that are interjected beneath the skin through small incisions. The cannulas are connected to a vacuum system that allows for the aspiration of excess fat tissue. There are multiple different types of liposuction and every year, newer and safer techniques are being pioneered.

Is Liposuction a method for weight loss?
No. It is important to keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss tactic, but a method to shape the body and reduce the deposits of fat that, despite a healthy diet and physical exercise, cannot be reduced. It is not meant to be seen as a weight loss technique and will not be performed on obese or severely overweight patients. Liposuction is great for those who have lost weight naturally but struggle with a few small areas that just won’t budge.

Can the removed fat come back?
During liposuction, the cells (adipocytes) ..

The main objective of a hair transplant is to permanently restore the follicles in a specific area of the head. When performed properly, surgery provides patients with a natural and effective solution for male or female pattern alopecia.
