ask-for-blog11-1

Once you’ve lost the weight we know that being left with excess skin that just won’t tighten up regardless of what you do can be incredibly frustrating. We offer several options, from head to toe, that will firm skin and leave you looking svelte and toned in no time.

What are my options?

 

1) Facial Rejuvenation

Lift MD Aesthetics offers Facial Rejuvenation options for everyone. Whether you require a peel, injectables or a facelift to achieve your desired result, facial rejuvenation can be least invasive and most effective way to look years younger.

2) Breast Augmentation 

Ideal for those suffering from sagging skin, or loss of volume, a Breast Augmentation can reduce the excess skin and fill in the loss of volume. Whether a reduction or implants, a Breast Augmentation can help to create the silhouette desired.

3) Arms

For those who are concerned about excess skin on their arms, a brachioplasty or arm lift is your best option. A small incision is made on the under side of your arm. From there the tissue is tightened and reshaped, resulting in a more defined and toned arm.

4) Liposculpture, Tummy Tuck, Extended Tummy Tuck or Body Lift. 

For excess loose skin on the lower body, several procedures performed are intended to remove excess body skin and fatty tissue. In the area of the back and belly (the trunk), cases of mild excess maybe treated appropriately by procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction. For more extreme cases, there are more surgical options that can be discussed.

5) Thigh Lift

Similar to an arm lift, a thigh lift targets the upper leg area to reduce the amount of excess skin that creates a drooping look.

 

How long do these procedures generally take?

Each procedure varies in length. From 15 minutes for a “Liquid Facelift” to several hours for more extensive surgeries. Once you discuss your options with your doctor, the procedure length will become clear.

What is the recovery process for these procedures?

Recovery period for surgical procedures average at around 1-2 weeks. Non-invasive procedure like injectables involve nearly no downtime.

The Secret to a Famous Face!

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Garo Kassabian

More and more we see celebrities and reality stars debuting more proportionate facial features that seem to balance overall features and create a more proportional look. How are they doing this? Although the right makeup and haircut can do wonders, there is a little secret that some of hollywood’s most beautiful hold in their back pocket.

In the recent Bravo reality series, Vanderpump Rules, lead character Stassi Schroeder reveals she received a chin implant as a high school graduation present. Attributing her modeling jobs and recent success to her more defined chin, which helped her face appear more defined and not as round. Other celebrity figures that have reportedly had similar procedures to enhance their looks include Kim Kardashian, Bristol Palin and Ashlee Simpson.

Researchers and experts alike say that patients are oftentimes more satisfied with their results if they also receive a chin implant when they undergo rhinoplasty. The reason why? Many people don’t understand the affect changing one element of their face will have on the overall balance of their entire look. An expert surgeon will know how to make these two distinct facial features proportionate creating a more natural looking facial structure. In many cases, however, a chin implant can be performed on it’s own to complement the patients existing features.

Everyone’s individual preferences are different and not every patient may need both procedures. Remember to always  discuss all possible options with your expert surgeon prior to going into surgery.
