Yet, the tremendous benefits associated with weight loss keep these people trying year after year. For those who do reach their ideal weight, the moment is one of triumph and excitement. All of that hard work has finally paid off, right? Right… Unless your dramatic weight loss has left your stretched-out skin sagging or small deposits of fat in unwanted places. Patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight are turning to plastic surgery procedures to help them get a second chance to have the bodies they want.

Problems After Weight Loss

It’s a huge accomplishment to reach your ideal weight, but getting there might not be as perfect as you imagined it. Many men and women post-weight loss are frustrated with what they see in the mirror. Some of the most common complaints heard from patients after significant weight loss include: flabby arms and thighs, excess skin around the tummy, sagging skin around the lower body, pockets of fat around the knees or hips that won’t budge, and more. It’s completely normal, even if it is totally undesirable.
For some extreme cases of dramatic weight loss, the amount of excess skin might hit a dangerous level. These men and women might be required to have surgery to remove the extra skin before it causes health issues. Consult with your primary care physician and a trusted plastic surgeon about body contouring procedures and what they might offer you.

Candidates for Body Contouring After Weight Loss

If you’ve recently lost a large amount of weight, whether through gastric bypass surgery or on your own, you may be a good candidate for some body contouring procedures to tidy up your look. All patients for any cosmetic surgery should be in good overall health, not smoke, and have reasonable expectations for their potential results.
It may be time to consider plastic surgery if:

  • You have sagging skin in multiple places, which may include the face, neck, breasts, abdomen, arms, back, and thighs.
  • Your weight is now stabilized at or around your ideal weight. Some surgeons may require that your weight be stable for at least six months before surgery, as a precaution for your own health and safety.
  • You find it hard to wear clothing because the excess skin makes everything fit wrong.
  • You experience painful chafing, rashes, or infections in the areas where your loose skin is present.
  • You have low self-esteem despite finally achieving your goal weight.

Start With SmartLipo Triplex for Best Results

If loose skin and excess fat are your major problem, why not choose a treatment that removes fat cells and tightens up nearby skin tissue all at once? SmartLipo Triplex is a revolutionary new liposuction technique that provides surgeons with a new approach to body contouring. SmartLipo is less invasive, safer to use, and delivers improved results. A laser is inserted into the treatment area, where the laser energy is released in order to liquefy fat cells for good. These are then suctioned away with a vacuum attachment. As the laser energy is absorbed by the skin, however, it encourages the growth of collagen, tightening and plumping the skin once more. Consider SmartLipo as a smart part of your plan for body contouring after weight loss.

Other Procedures to Seek After Weight Loss

Body contouring is a type of plastic surgery focused on reshaping and refining the lines of the body. It is often used to refer to a wide range of procedures, each offering a unique way to trim and tone a certain area of the body. If you’re considering body contouring procedures, your plastic surgeon might suggest any of the following procedures to you.

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, focuses on the flabby skin and weakened muscles of the abdomen. The procedure aims to correct a protruding abdomen through the removal of excess fat and skin, plus the tightening of the abdominal muscles. The result is a sleeker, better toned abdomen that reflects the hard work of your weight loss efforts nicely.

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, helps patients to achieve the sleek, toned-looking arms they’ve always wanted. Aging and weight loss can cause the skin and fat deposits of the arms to sag and wiggle. Sometimes called “bat wings,” no woman wants to wake up with them one day. Removing the excess skin and fat leaves the arms smoother, firmer, and more youthful looking.

Breast lift surgery is another popular choice for women after weight loss, since the breasts are often left stretched out and sagging toward the belly button. Your plastic surgeon can lift the breasts to a more natural place on the body, reposition the nipple to a central location, and even reshape the breasts to look more even. After a large amount of weight, many women opt for a combination procedure that adds breast implants, or a breast augmentation, into a breast lift surgery.

Many patients opt for a thigh lift after weight loss, since this area of the body can collect a large amount of excess, sagging skin and even fat. The thigh lift procedure leaves the thighs looking firmer and smoother by removing the excess. When the procedure and recovery are over, many patients are pleased with their sleeker thighs, especially since they can now seem more proportional to the rest of the body.

When Patients Are Chastised After Undergoing Ethnic Rhinoplastyhttp://www.yourfacemd.com/patients-chastised-undergoing-ethnic-rhinoplasty/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/patients-chastised-undergoing-ethnic-rhinoplasty/#comments Thu, 21 Aug 2014 09:30:54 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6580 Read more]]> When Patients Are Chastised After Undergoing Ethnic RhinoplastyWhile patients of ethnic rhinoplastymay seek refinement of their noses, many patients seek to preserve their ethnicity.

The Difference Between Ethnic and WesternizingRhinoplasty

These two types of rhinoplasty are often confused, though they are actually opposite procedures. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a surgery patients of varying ethnicities (commonly African American, Asian, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern) undergo to change the look of the nose. Patients explain to Dr. Rubinstein that they do not wish to appear more Caucasian, but rather to refine existing characteristics. The goal is not to completely alter the look of the face through structural adjustments made to the nose, but rather to enhance the existing anatomy.

“Western” rhinoplasty, also commonly referred to as Caucasian Rhinoplasty, is requested but it is less common, and may be performed as part of a total treatment plan. For example, a patient may have surgery on their eyelids (blepharoplasty), nose (rhinoplasty), and cheeks for a full transformation.

Persuading a Person to Be Comfortable With Ethnic Facial Features

Members of an ethnic group may attempt to influence a rhinoplasty candidate’s decision. Often times, people will state they feel a person looks great just as he or she is. Such comments are intended to improve one’s self-esteem, though they can prove frustrating to patients who are not interested in sharing their reasoning with family and friends. The decision to undergo an ethnic rhinoplasty can be deeply personal. Adults are capable of making their own decisions, including the choice to undergo an elective surgery. It can be difficult to take another’s opinion into account when a decision does not directly impact them.

Changing the Norms of a Culture

Often times, minority groups who have struggled to live a life in the United States are composed of various age groups. Elders, in particular, may find the notion of plastic surgery to be a frivolous expense when simply obtaining the essentials proved difficult during their transition to this country. Some may feel that a person’s hard-earned money is best spent on savings or an education. While this concern is understandable, each of these goals can occur simultaneously, if a patient so chooses. Plastic surgeons offer financing plans, various ways to perform procedures which include non-surgical versions, and certain types of rhinoplasty may be covered by insurance, such as septoplasty or functional rhinoplasty.

It can be difficult for a person who feels scrutinized about his or her decision to undergo ethnic rhinoplasty to justify the desire for such a procedure. Patients should know it is perfectly acceptable to keep their wishes private. All humans seek to improve their looks in some way, be it shaving facial or body hair, styling and coloring the hair on their head, or the application of makeup. Electing to undergo a surgery is a very similar concept, though the results are more significant and permanent.

Your Breast Reduction Recovery: The Good, the Bad, and the Unexpectedhttp://www.yourfacemd.com/breast-reduction-recovery-good-bad-unexpected/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/breast-reduction-recovery-good-bad-unexpected/#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 09:30:19 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6572 Read more]]> All You Need to Know About Recovering From a Breast ReductionBreast reduction surgery is a procedure that can create dramatic results for the right patient. Given the nature of this surgery and its recovery process, however, every breast reduction patient should be prepared to commit the time and get the needed rest in order to heal well and achieve her desired results. Preparing for your recovery time should involve learning more about what to expect. To get a better idea, here are some of the common side effects experienced by women after a breast reduction surgery.

After Breast Reduction: The Medical Details

An important part of your recovery involves the details of your immediate after-care and some of the side effects you might experience. Right after surgery, your breasts will be wrapped with gauze and a surgical bra which must be worn for the first few days as you begin to heal. You may also have drains inserted into the area to relieve any fluid buildup; these will typically be removed after a few days as well.

Most breast reduction patients will experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort, which can be managed with the prescription pain medication your plastic surgeon will give to you. Part of your discomfort will stem from the swelling and bruising around the breasts, which will subside on its own during the first week or so. Your plastic surgeon will also give you a timeline for when you are allowed to resume your usual activities, such as going back to work, exercising or training, and more.

Potential Complications From Breast Reduction

All surgeries come with risks, some more serious than others. A breast reduction surgery does pose some risk of complications to its patients, but most can be easily managed with your surgeon’s assistance. The most common complications following a breast reduction include a bad reaction to anesthesia, heavy bleeding, infection, nerve damage to the breasts or nipples, and asymmetrical or dissatisfying breast reduction results.

Choosing the right plastic surgeon for the job is the first step toward minimizing your risk for complications like those detailed above. Look for a surgeon who is board certified, has experience performing breast reductions, and has the equipment and facilities needed to conduct a surgery in a sterile environment. You should also be on the lookout for a surgeon using VECTRA 3D imaging, which can create a three-dimensional photograph of you and your projected results. Talking about your expected results with this visual tool can help to prevent any mistakes in communication and guarantee your satisfaction when the procedure is finished.

The Breast Recovery Timeline

Knowing what to expect and when to expect it can help to put your mind at ease as you rest and allow your body to heal. Your breast reduction procedure will involve the surgical removal of breast tissue, the relocation of the nipple, possible fat removal using liposuction, and the reshaping of the breasts. There will be a lot for your body to recover from, so be patient and let yourself meet each recovery milestone.

  • Right after surgery – You will be taken to a recovery room until you are awake and alert from the general anesthesia. You will be allowed to return home, although a friend or family member must drive you home; if possible, someone should also stay with you the first night after your surgery. Your surgeon will tell you when you are allowed to take your first post-op shower.
  • The first week – Typically, you will meet with your surgeon to remove the surgical bra and get a different support garment. Your stitches will likely absorb, but you may have one suture on each side that needs to be removed at the end of your first week. Pain medication will be used to keep you comfortable during these 7 days. You cannot drive until you have finished taking your medication.
  • The second week – Most patients are able to return to work somewhere around 1 to 2 weeks post-op, but everyone is unique. You should no longer feel as much of a need to take your prescription medication, as the swelling and pain will subside around this point. Many patients have tender breasts for a couple more weeks, but the pain is greatly lessened.
  • Life after breast surgery – Your breasts may feel hard and swollen for up to 6 weeks after surgery, at which point they will soften and feel natural again. You will need to wear the bra your surgeon recommends to be comfortable and provide the right amount of support. Keep in mind that your breasts will likely be extra swollen and tender during your first period.

Follow the Directions for Best Results

If you want to move your breast reduction recovery process along and skip the complications, the best thing you can do is follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions. Make yourself a checklist and stick to it so you always know that you’re doing as much as you can to heal faster and heal well. Some of the items on your surgeon’s list may include: don’t smoke; drink plenty of water to stay hydrated; avoid alcohol for up to one week after surgery; dedicate the first 48 hours after your surgery to resting; keep yourself propped up to sleep with plenty of pillows for support; don’t do anything physical that might strain your incisions and cause bleeding. Finally, if at any point you are concerned about your side effects, call your plastic surgeon. You could help to minimize your complications by acting early.

Are You Ready for a Revision?http://www.yourfacemd.com/ready-revision/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/ready-revision/#comments Thu, 14 Aug 2014 20:09:42 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6569 Read more]]> Are You Ready for a Revision?You had a feeling that you hated your new nose the minute your first rhinoplasty was over. But, you took the your doctor’s advice and waited to see if the results from the surgery would be more in line with your expectations as the nose healed.

While seeing an experienced surgeon will increase your chances of having a satisfactory result the first time, in some cases, the unexpected can occur and your new nose might not be quite what you wanted.

There are a number of things to think about when deciding whether you are ready for a revision procedure or not. Along with the physical considerations, there are some emotional and psychological factors that you want to address before you decide to undergo a second surgery.

Timing

Timing is a big issue when deciding whether or not you’re ready for a revision rhinoplasty. The nose needs time to heal. It’s typically recommended that you wait at least a year, if not 18 months, before you have a second procedure.

Waiting not only gives the nose time to settle into its new shape, for swelling to reduce and for bruising to fade, it also allows the scar tissue in the nose to soften. Right after the procedure, the scar tissue is typically hard. After some time, it will become softer and easier for a surgeon to work with.

The Problem With the Nose

Understanding the issue with your nose will help you decide if you are ready for a second procedure or not. The surgeon you decide to work with for the revision procedure should review pictures of your nose before the first surgery as well as the way the nose looks now and give you some idea of what went wrong. You should be able to share what you had hoped to get out of the initial surgery with your surgeon and where you think it went wrong.

Emotional Factors

A number of emotional factors can impact whether or not you’re ready for a second nose-shaping surgery. When rhinoplasty goes well, it can increase your self-esteem. To end up with a nose that you think looks the same or worse than the first version can really shake your confidence, which can affect how you approach surgery and whether it’s the right choice at the moment.

Having an unsuccessful initial surgery can also impact how anxious you feel about the second procedure. Be sure to discuss any anxiety or concerns you have about the secondary rhinoplasty with your surgeon. He should be able to provide reassurance or help calm your fears.

Choosing a Surgeon

Once you’ve decided that it’s time for a revision procedure, the next step is finding the ideal surgeon. There are a few things to think about when picking a revision rhinoplasty surgeon: his experience and level of skill. Most likely, you don’t want to go back to the surgeon who performed  the initial procedure, especially if you think the issues stem from that surgeon’s lack of experience or from a failure for you and your surgeon to fully communicate with each other.

The surgeon you choose should not only be board certified to perform facial plastic surgery, he should also have demonstrable experience performing revision rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty surgeries. A surgeon who’s only ever performed primary rhinoplasty won’t have the experience you want when it comes to a revision procedure.

Ask the surgeon to show you examples of previous patients, such as before and after photos. You can also ask to talk to past patients or to see references from previous patients.

Sit down with the surgeon for a consultation before the surgery and discuss what your concerns are with your nose. He should be able to describe what types of changes he makes to the nose to make it more functional or to make it more in line with what you want. If the surgeon uses computer imaging, that’s even better, as he’ll be able not only to describe what he can do to your nose, but also show you.

Asking questions is an important part of the process when deciding whether or not you’re ready for a revision surgery. The more questions you ask, the better able your surgeon will be to make sure you are both on the same page.

CoolSculpting vs. SmartLipo: Which Is Right for You?http://www.yourfacemd.com/coolsculpting-smartlipo/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/coolsculpting-smartlipo/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:57:46 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6565 Read more]]> CoolSculpting vs. SmartLipoIt used to be that there was just one method of fat cell removal: a good, old-fashioned liposuction surgery. Now, as technology and medical science continue to advance, there are many different approaches to permanent fat removal. Both the CoolSculpting and SmartLipo procedures are among this new class of liposuction treatments. How do they compare? Is there really a difference? And which procedure is the best choice for you?

All About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting technology is a new addition to the liposuction treatment team, but it is also one of the most unique. It is a noninvasive technique designed to target and eliminate areas of fatty tissue from the body in one hour and without a long recovery period. This unique approach can be used to eliminate fatty tissue from the abdomen, upper back, lower back, flanks, arms, thighs, and even male breasts.

The procedure is conducted using Cryolipolysis, a technique that employs cold temperatures to freeze the deep layers of fat cells. These cells will slowly die and the body will metabolize them, flushing them away permanently. The beauty of CoolSculpting’s technique is that the surrounding healthy skin and tissue will remain unharmed, so it is safe to use this procedure almost anywhere.

A CoolSculpting body contouring treatment begins with the patient relaxed on a chair or table, positioned so that the machine can access the target area. The Coolsculpting applicator is placed with a paddle on either side of the fatty tissue. These paddles will deliver extreme cold to the deep fatty layer, but will not cause any pain for the patient. No anesthesia or sedation is used for the treatment and most patients are comfortable enough to read a book, take a nap, or work on a laptop while the CoolSculpting machine is working.

All About SmartLipo Triplex

SmartLipo Triplex is another newer technique in the world of liposuction, but it is surgical in nature. Using laser energy to permanently remove unwanted fat, SmartLipo provides many great benefits to patients who don’t want the recovery time and risks associated with traditional liposuction. It is an ideal choice for prospective patients who have good skin tone overall but are troubled by specific pockets of fat on the body, such as the love handles, saddle bags, bat wings, and muffin tops. SmartLipo is safe to use on many areas, including the abdomen, back, breasts, buttocks, hips, knees, thighs, upper arms, cheeks, chin, and neck.

A SmartLipo procedure is a surgery, so it is performed using local anesthesia and sometimes sedation, as needed. The surgery begins with small incisions at the treatment site, through which a very small tube is inserted. A laser fiber attached to this tube is then used to emit laser energy that will liquefy nearby fat cells. Through the tube, your surgeon will suction out this melted fat, removing it permanently from the body. While the laser is working, it will also trigger the production of collagen growth in the skin cells, encouraging them to tighten. You may see some of your results right away, but the full effect is visible once the swelling subsides and the collagen has had time to grow.

Comparing the Procedures

It’s hard to compare two procedures that are so different in their tactics and approach. Yet, both CoolSculpting and SmartLipo Triplex are designed to achieve the same end result: fat cell removal. In doing so, they do have their similarities and differences.

CoolSculpting offers many benefits to patients, including permanent removal of fatty tissue. There is no recovery time, no anesthesia, no pain or discomfort, and almost no risks to the CoolSculpting procedure. One downside is that your CoolSculpting results will take up to 16 weeks to fully appear, as the body will gradually remove the dying fat cells over time. Still, there are no incisions involved in this unique approach to permanent body transformation.

While a SmartLipo Triplex procedure is surgical in nature, it still offers much less pain and discomfort, faster results, and a shorter recovery time than a traditional liposuction. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within just two to four days following their procedure. SmartLipo also adds the benefit of tightened skin, eliminating the loose and saggy skin that sometimes results from liposuction.

Discover Which Treatment Is Right for You

Choosing between CoolSculpting and SmartLipo to remove your unwanted fatty deposits is ultimately up to you. When making your decision, consult with a plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring who has experience with body techniques. At Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists, your consultation will include a VECTRA 3D Imaging demonstration, which allows your surgeon to project your results using real photos of your body. This is a valuable tool that might help you decide if the nonsurgical CoolSculpting will be enough to achieve your desired results or if SmartLipo Triplex will be worth the recovery time. Remember that it’s up to you which procedure best suits your needs, so get as much information as you can about both treatment options.

Functional Rhinoplasty – Improving Your Breathinghttp://www.yourfacemd.com/functional-rhinoplasty-improving-breathing/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/functional-rhinoplasty-improving-breathing/#comments Fri, 08 Aug 2014 19:40:57 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6562 Read more]]> Improve Your Breathing With Functional RhinoplastyApproximately 221,000 people underwent rhinoplasty surgery in 2013, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That year, the procedure was ranked No. 2 in the Top 5 cosmetic surgeries performed.

However, did you know that rhinoplasty is not merely a cosmetic procedure? It can also be performed to improve the function of your nose and the quality of your breathing.

The Nasal Structure

Your nose is made up of cartilage and bone. The cartilage provides structure and shape to the outside of your nose, while the nasal bones provide an anchor and support for the cartilage. There are also cartilages and bones deep inside your nasal cavity that provide support for the sinuses and olfactory nerves in addition to keeping the nasal passage stable for breathing. Functional rhinoplasty makes corrections to these small internal structures to help you breathe better.

Common Internal Corrections

The most common treatment involved in functional rhinoplasty is correcting a deviated septum, or a septoplasty. The septum is the wall inside your nose that separates the left and right nasal passages. Air flows through these passages as you breathe in and out. However, if the septum is bent, broken, twisted, or deformed in some way, this can limit your breathing through one or both passages. A septoplasty involves straightening out the septum and removing blockages to the airway using a variety of surgical techniques.

Another common correction is a turbinate reduction. Within the nasal cavity are turbinates, mucous-covered membranes of bone. These membranes act like shelves inside the nose and are important in trapping contaminates that you may breathe in. They also moisten and warm air as it is drawn into the lungs. There are three turbinates stacked on top of one another: superior, middle, and inferior. The inferior turbinate is the most common cause of nasal obstruction due to its size and propensity to become enlarged when stimulated by environmental surroundings. A turbinate reduction procedure involves removing some of the membrane to improve the flow of air through the nasal cavity.

A third common treatment in functional rhinoplasty is the removal of nasal polyps. These are benign growths that appear in the cavity and nasal passages.

Common External Corrections

When airway obstruction is especially serious, internal corrections may not be sufficient enough to correct the problem. In this case, external treatments can be used to restructure the nasal framework as a whole. The typical treatment involves repairing a nasal valve collapse.

The nasal valve is the narrowest part of the nasal passage. It is lined with membranes that can expand or shrink as you breathe, which regulates the airflow and maximize the efficiency of air filtration through the nose. If the valve collapses due to injury, illness, aging, or simply naturally thin noses, this can be reversed using individualized surgical techniques that conform to the anatomy, contour, and tissue strength of the patient’s nose. With this particular procedure, it isn’t always possible to maintain a cosmetically desirable nose, so it’s important for cosmetic rhinoplasty surgeons to be aware of the potential for airway obstructions when performing cosmetic procedures.

Additional Benefits of Functional Rhinoplasty

  • These procedures can often be performed at the same time as cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures, which increases the likelihood of a successful surgery and patient satisfaction with the result
  • The procedures described above are typically very simple and have a short recovery time
  • Health insurance can be used to finance functional rhinoplasty procedures, which is usually not an option for purely cosmetic procedures

Cellulaze After-Care Tips for Successhttp://www.yourfacemd.com/cellulaze-aftercare-tips-success/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/cellulaze-aftercare-tips-success/#comments Mon, 04 Aug 2014 17:22:57 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6553 Read more]]> Cellulaze provides permanent solution to celluliteNo one is a fan of cellulite, especially not on their own bodies. Thanks to Cellulaze, a revolutionary approach to ridding cellulite from key areas of the body, no one has to be a fan of it ever again. Cellulaze can provide a permanent solution to the appearance of cellulite at the treatment area without surgery and without a high risk of complications. Getting the results from your Cellulaze procedure starts with a great plastic surgeon but ends with you giving your body the proper care it needs to heal. Read on for some tips on how you can eliminate cellulite from your life once and for all.

What Is Cellulaze?

If you’re unfamiliar with the Cellulaze treatment, it is the first scientifically proven treatment to reverse cellulite. To perform the procedure, the SmartLipo laser is fitted with a special side-firing laser tip. It is then inserted into tiny incisions along the treatment area. The laser energy works to cut through the collagen bands pulling down on the skin and creating the cottage cheese-like appearance of cellulite. The depressed areas are released once these bands have been cut and the skin will take on a smoother appearance again. As an extra bonus, the laser energy will also melt away nearby fat cells, as well as smooth and tighten the skin. The entire procedure typically lasts one hour and can be performed under local anesthesia.

Recovering From Cellulaze

Because the Cellulaze treatment is only mildly invasive, the recovery period is very short. Most plastic surgeons will allow you to resume your normal daily activities after just one day of rest and recuperation. Your results will soon become visible, too, often in as little as a few weeks. The overall texture and thickness of your skin at the treatment areas will improve as well, with fewer bumps and depressions and a drastic reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Some patients may be given a compression garment to wear over their treatment area, which will help to reduce swelling and control the contouring of the area as it heals. While Cellulaze is focused on the surface area of the skin, the changes it makes are deeper in the tissue and can create real, lasting change. Adding a compression garment to the healing process is one way to guide the body and give it some additional comfort. If you are given a compression garment, follow your plastic surgeon’s advice about when to wear it and for how long. It can only help you to achieve the results you want from your Cellulaze treatment.

Boosting Recovery for Better Results

Patients after any procedure, including Cellulaze, want to know what else they can do to recover better and faster. After all, a better recovery tends to mean better results in the long run. Even though Cellulaze does provide permanent changes in the appearance of your cellulite, this doesn’t mean that there’s nothing you can do to help it along!

For a smooth recovery following your Cellulaze treatment, make sure to give these after-care tips a try:

  • Downtime is important, even if this is a procedure that doesn’t “require” it. Yes, you can go back to your regular business the next day, but don’t overdo it. Your body may need more time to recover because everyone heals differently. Don’t rush through your downtime, even if it’s just a day or two.
  • Light exercise can speed any recovery. Once you’re given the all-clear to exercise, which is typically the day after your Cellulaze procedure, you should engage in some light exercise on a regular basis. Going for a walk every day can have a profound impact on your health and your recovery.
  • Listen to your body and give it the rest it needs. You will experience some bruising, swelling, and redness around the treatment areas. It’s okay to give yourself a break until you get a little more comfortable. Customize your own after-care treatment plan and respond to what your body tells you.

Ways to Benefit From Facial Plastic Surgeryhttp://www.yourfacemd.com/ways-benefit-facial-plastic-surgery/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/ways-benefit-facial-plastic-surgery/#comments Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:52:32 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6546 Read more]]> How can you benefit from cosmetic surgeryHave you ever entertained the idea of undergoing plastic surgery? On the contrary, are you the type of person who has told yourself or others “I would never consider plastic surgery”? If either of these istrue, this article was written for you!

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #1

One cannot underestimate the importance of their looks, especially the appearance of the face. While we can camouflage imperfections of the body, the face is on full display all the time. It is an important part of ourselves that we present to the world, and an attractive face equates to high self-esteem.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #2

Certain surgical procedures not only present cosmetic changes outwardly, but additionally structural changes of features that improve their function. Septoplasty, also called functional rhinoplasty is a surgery that straightens the tissue dividing the nasal passages for easier breathing. It is often performed alongside rhinoplasty for dual benefits of a better working and more attractive feature. The same rewards can be reaped through blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. When droopy eyelids impair a person’s vision, they become a medical issue. Dr. Rubinstein can eliminate the excess tissue and create other surgical fixes of the eye area. Luckily, most insurance plans cover the necessary portions of these surgeries.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #3

It has long been accepted that plastic surgery is a perk of being rich and famous, but the fact is that more citizens than celebrities undergo procedures. Cosmetic improvements are affordable through financing plans, surgeon specials, and insurance coverage due to a procedure performed for medical relief. In addition, there are many ways to achieve similar results. Dr. Rubinstein’s office offers dermal injections to add volume to the skin and serve anti-aging and other cosmetic correction benefits.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #4

Many people who choose to undergo a procedure for aesthetic purposes do so because they are dissatisfied with their looks. Some may feel they have a nose not suited to the rest of their face, while others hope to turn back the hands of time to regain some of their youth. People visit with a facial plastic surgeon for a number of reasons, but none as important as those who have been affected by facial trauma. Bearing damage to the face can serve as a daily physical reminder of a crisis someone has been through, be it a health scare, a traumatic accident, or violence. Taking control over the results of an unforeseen situation is a cathartic move, often necessary for mental healing to take place.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #5

Some say aging is a privilege not awarded to everyone, which is true. There is a flipside to this gratitude; the physical changes as a result of the maturity process can cause those who are aging to resent the fact that they are growing older. The way a person looks can affect his or her place in the workforce and dating scene, and even his or her own self-worth. Anti-aging procedures can improve a person’s presence to others and his- or herself.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #6

Facial plastics can correct numerous issues, one of which is a sports injury. Commonly, rhinoplasty is performed to treat mid-face contact traumas, and may be coupled with septoplasty. Cosmetic surgery can also benefit those who need reconstructive procedures, the draining or treatment of “cauliflower ear,” and restoring symmetry to the face.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #7

Children can be unkind to their peers, but plastic surgery may be the solution parents seek to end bullying due to a little one’s unique looks. Taunting in one’s early years may also set the precedent for the type of treatment a person may receive later in their life. Otoplasty, an ear-pinning surgery that is safe to perform on children, minimizes the prominence of the ears. Facial plastic surgeries like rhinoplasty or chin augmentation are more commonly reserved for patients in their teen years. A consultation with Dr. Rubinstein is the best way to learn about the procedures that benefit a child or teen.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #8

Patients of varying ethnicities can undergo facial cosmetic procedures while still preserving their heritage. With this type of request, the doctor can create minor alterations, and will take special care to leave certain areas of the face untouched. Ethnic rhinoplasty is an example of facial plastics with specified modifications.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #9

Modern medicine has provided plastic surgeons with numerous ways to alter areas of the face. Non-surgical procedures are an excellent option for those not yet ready to commit to a permanent surgery. Budget-conscious individuals may also prefer this alternative solution to beauty. Botox treatments can effectively treat the signs of aging, in some cases providing results similar to that of a facelift. Dermal filler injection session can replace the desire for patients to undergo facial implant surgery. While the modifications may not be as dramatic or permanent, patients can experiment with their looks without a commitment.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #10

Cosmetic procedures can lessen or erase the seemingly permanent byproducts of past life choices. Past drug abuse may leave unsightly pockmark scars on the face that affect how someone is viewed in society. Tattoos of a gang affiliation or past lover’s name can prevent people from fully moving forward in their lives. Laser procedures offer solutions to these issues and more, while also creating long term cosmetic improvements in the treatment areas.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #11

Victims of domestic violence suffer the majority of their injuries on the face. This tactic is both physical and psychological, and leaves the injured with long-lasting memories of the abuse. Victims can recover through professional intervention, and one component is the repair of damaged regions of the face.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #12

Some people share the outdated belief that plastic surgery must be entirely transformative, creating new faces for those who elect to undergo procedures. While these results are possible, the typical plastic surgery patient requests a look that helps them appear refreshed. Discreet, natural changes that enhance one’s appearance are favored over dramatic procedures. Some ways to ensure that one’s final look does not appear manufactured are hidden incision scars, minor alterations, and non-surgical fixes combined with permanent changes.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #13

Patients may suffer an illness that had a negative impact on their health as well as their looks. People living with HIV or AIDS may notice fullness in the face has diminished over time, but a fat transfer procedure or injectable fillers can replace the volume. Skin cancer surgery may have created the necessity for removal of additional tissues of the face to ensure the patient was free of any dangerous lesion cells, and may require a reconstructive procedure to restore lost muscle, skin, and fat. Other procedures can help ensure that patients look as physically healthy as they feel.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #14

People who want to change their looks, should. Every individual has gone through life experiences unique to his or her existence. There may be a significant life event that leads to a patient’s desires, while others may have a facial feature they have never been fully comfortable with. If physical changes to the face will enhance a person’s self-esteem, they should consider aesthetic changes, whether temporary or permanent.

Facial Plastic Surgery Benefit #15

While every person has experienced growing pains or awkward life stages during youth, the lasting marks of adolescence need not follow individuals into their adult lives. Chickenpox and acne scars are the result of a past skin condition that left lasting reminders.

Luckily, there are numerous treatment options. Skin resurfacing treatments are a popular option as they treat the skin from the outside in, promoting beautification by each layer of skin removal. Laser procedures, dermabrasion sessions, and chemical peel applications are all ways the skin can be exfoliated to improve its tone and texture. Each of these options is typically performed weeks apart so the skin can heal and shed in a natural way, but with the aid of modern aesthetics. Ice pick scars (also called pock marks) can be raised to meet the surface of the surrounding skin, creating a smoother overall appearance through dermal injections. These biocompatible skin plumpers must be repeated every few to several months. Another option is to treat past problem skin through the use of at-home cosmetceuticals, or skin care products that may contain prescription-grade ingredients.

Body Contouring and Fighting Obesityhttp://www.yourfacemd.com/body-contouring-fighting-obesity/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/body-contouring-fighting-obesity/#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:02:50 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6550 Read more]]> How Body Contouring Could Fight ObesitySignificant weight loss, whether it is the result of bariatric surgery or plain old diet and exercise, can be a tremendous accomplishment for overweight or obese men and women. The hard work and dedication required to drop 40, 60, 80 pounds or more is incredible, given the time and patience it requires to reach such a big goal. For many of these men and women, however, the thrill of losing the weight is quickly ruined by the state of their bodies afterwards: loose, sagging skin on the abdomen, hips, arms, thighs, and almost everywhere. Body contouring procedures can help these patients to gain control over the way their body looks again. According to recent studies, it may also help them keep the weight off in the future.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a branch of plastic surgery that includes several procedures designed to improve the shape, tone, and contour of various parts of the body. These procedures can involve the removal of fat cells, the trimming of excess skin, the tightening of the skin, and the tightening of the muscles as well. Surgeons who specialize in the field of body contouring are experts at understanding a patient’s physique and designing a treatment plan that addresses their concerns while keeping the body in good proportion.
Some of the most common body contouring procedures include: abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, arm lift, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, Cellulaze treatments for cellulite, the Mommy Makeover treatment package, Smart Lipo Triplex liposuction techniques, and thigh lift. Following substantial weight loss, it is very common for patients top opt for several body contouring procedures at once in order to optimize their results from head to toe.

Disappointment After Weight Loss

The psychological effects of many different types of plastic surgery have been the subject of studies for decades. Changing the way you look is a significant decision that can have a profound effect on your self-esteem, confidence levels, and the way people perceive you in your daily life.

Losing a large amount of weight is one way that men and women can really change the person they present to the world and how they feel about themselves all at once. When the changes are undermined by leftover baggy skin, however, these feelings of increased self-esteem are threatened. Depression and anxiety often follow, especially once the initial joys have worn off. This may put some men and women at risk for a relapse, leading to poor eating habits and a decrease in activity. Ultimately, the weight may creep back on over time.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much to do about this problem on your own. Many prospective patients who have lost weight turn to body contouring surgery as their only chance. Through the design and execution of a treatment plan, your outsides can look the way they deserve to after all that hard work.

Stay On Track With Body Contouring

It’s a shame when a person spends so much time working toward a goal, only to turn around and undo all of that hard work. Break the cycle of unhappiness with your body when that weight is finally off. Make sure it stays off for good by taking actions to correct the damage all of that excess fat has caused your stretched-out and saggy skin. Meeting a huge weight loss goal should be celebrated, not mourned; it especially should not be the reason someone turns to food for comfort again.

Body contouring procedures have been proven to have a direct impact on a person’s self-esteem following treatment and recovery. By removing the unwanted folds of skin from your arms, abdomen, thighs, and anywhere else, you are reclaiming the body that was once yours. It’s the second chance that everyone wants to get. In fact, recent studies have shown that patients who receive body contouring treatments after weight loss demonstrate better weight control over the long term. A sleeker body contour could be the motivation needed to keep you focused on maintaining your newly achieved goal weight.

While body contouring may not cure obesity, it can certainly remove some of the post-weight loss strain that leads to subsequent weight gain later on. Be proactive about your body’s healthful appearance and consult with a plastic surgeon to learn more about what steps you can take to help your weight loss stay permanent.

Eye Procedures Performed Together to Create Optimal Resultshttp://www.yourfacemd.com/eye-procedures-performed-create-optimal-results/ http://www.yourfacemd.com/eye-procedures-performed-create-optimal-results/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:39:49 +0000 http://www.yourfacemd.com/?p=6541 Read more]]> What eye procedure is right for you?During their doctor-patient consultation, patients often greet Dr. Rubinstein with basic concerns of the eye area and with preconceived notions of fixes that interest them. Prior to this visit, they may have performed research online, discussed plastic surgery with friends who have undergone similar procedures, or reviewed celebrity transformations. While these proactive patients may articulate the results they wish to see, they are not always aware of how aesthetic changes are achieved.

Oh Dear! I Want a Doe-Eyed Appearance

Studies have shown that humans view prominent eyes in women as attractive. We look to babies for the initial draw to this feature. The vision organs are their full size at birth and create a way for the child to engage with others. A maturing face equalizes the remaining facial features, though it has been scientifically recorded that high levels of the female sex hormone, estrogen, maintains the large-eyed appearance. Large eyes are often viewed as a sign of youth.

The first signs of aging affect the eyes, whose constant movement may lead to these changes. The eyes continue to age, often at a more rapid rate than the rest of the face. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is one way to eliminate extra skin and wrinkles from the area. An upper eyelid lift can minimize hooding, while a lower blepharoplasty treats under eye bags or natural hollowing. Together, the procedures offer a total eye transformation.

Skin Resurfacing – “Keep Away From Eye Area” Does Not Apply

Procedures that target the skin around the eyes can be performed alone, or once a patient has shown sufficient progress in healing. Through the use of exfoliating techniques such as microdermabrasion, chemical peel, and laser sessions, the upper layers of skin are sloughed away to reveal a more youthful underlying structure with less impurities. These procedures, each to a different degree, can also promote collagen production so the skin around the eyes will display long-term changes.

Fillers for the Skin Around the Eyes

Dermal fillers offer patients instant gratification when one seeks to rid the eye area of lines and wrinkles. These power-packed, skin-plumping gels remain in place for months to raise depressed areas of the skin to that of the surrounding area. Fillers can also change the underlying building blocks of the skin, and once administered where needed, the frequency of injections may decrease. Patients may opt to undergo dermal injections alongside other procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing to enjoy fast results while the skin heals to create more pleasing aesthetics.

The Latisse Solution

Another great way to add definition to the eye area is through the use of the prescription serum, Latisse. Allergan began manufacturing this product after some of the ingredients were used in eye drops with an astounding side effect: longer eyelashes. Lush eyelashes are a sign of beauty and youth, and the fringe helps to open up the eyes. The height of the eyelashes adds to the overall width of the eyes. Dr. Rubinstein can discuss Latissse with interested patients during their consultation, though this option should be carefully structured around any possible eyelid surgeries.

Raising a Brow: Another Lifting Surgical Possibility

Potential plastic surgery patients may not realize that the eyebrows play an important role in facial harmony and the appearance of the eyes. While an upper blepharoplasty may be the patient’s first choice of surgery to correct hooded eyes, the relative position of the brow may also require adjustments. Some patients fear a “surprised look” as the result of a brow lift, but Dr. Rubinstein expertly tailors each procedure to a the patient’s own facial anatomy. Imaging software allows the doctor to show his patients potential outcomes with each change during brow lift surgery.

Dr. Ran Y. Rubinstein developed his practice in Hudson Valley over 14 years ago. The now-established doctor is known for offering the ideal blend of care, incorporating facial aesthetics and functionality into each procedure. When he is not caring for patients, the doctor is an Assistant Professor at New York Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
