Body Contouring

By | September 25, 2019

Liposuction is used to remove local fat accumulation, when there are no other methods available to lose unwanted fat and achieve the body you’ve always desired.

Tumescent (vacuum) is a type of liposuction performed to remove fat accumulation under local anesthesia with the use of a micro-cannula. This type of liposuction is widely used in plastic surgery, as it causes fewer complications and makes the overall recovery faster. With tumescent liposuction, the technology uses saline with lidocaine and epinephrine, providing local anesthesia. Under the influence of the solution, adipose tissue softens and makes the process of pumping easier. Tumescent liposuction causes less bleeding, bruising, and post-operative scars.

Ultrasonic liposuction is also widespread due to the effectiveness of the method. This operation uses ultrasound to destroy fat tissue. The benefit of ultrasonic liposuction is focused on the effects of the ultrasound on fat cells, with minimal risk of damage to other tissues and skin lifting effect.

Laser liposuction uses the same method as ultrasonic liposuction, but instead of an ultrasound, a laser is used. Also, the laser process seals blood vessels during the process, reducing the risk of swelling, bleeding, and hemorrhaging. This procedure may also enhance skin tightening.

Traditional liposuction involves the use of a large cannula to suck out large chunks of fat by simple force. Traditional liposuction can result in significant bruising and a longer period of recovery.

Power-assisted liposuction uses a pneumatic vibration device, and is often used for removing large accumulations of fat from the back, hips, and buttocks, as well as removing the male breasts. The operation involves a combination of the tumescent technique and vibration method.

Arm lift or brachioplasty is plastic surgery performed on the upper arm by removing sagging skin and fat accumulation. This operation is suitable for men and women who have flabby and saggy skin, without the availability of other methods of correction. The sharp decrease in weight, aging, and heredity are the major causes of sagging and flabby arms. An operation that takes only 2 hours in duration leaves you with toned, attractive arms.

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck in other words, is an operation to remove excess skin and fat in this area, with a view to restoring its elasticity and creating a toned silhouette. Such an operation strengthens the stretched muscles and allows you to get rid of sagging skin, as well as scars and stretch marks. Quite often, even people with normal weight have a slightly sagging or protruding belly. The reasons could be pregnancy, aging, dramatic weight loss, the result of previous operations and heredity. This operation requires general anesthesia and takes about 2-3 hours. Plastic surgery has an excellent effect and allows you to regain a beautiful waist.

Brazilian Buttock Lift is the best way to increase the shape of buttocks by means of a autologous fat transplantation. Fat injections provide a natural result, have low levels of risk of infection, and more clearly delineate the shape of the buttocks. The lower back and thighs can also be modified to further emphasize convex contours of the buttocks.

Buttock augmentation with fat grafting, a procedure known as the “Brazilian Buttocks Lift” consists of two stages. First, with the help of liposuction performed on the parts of the body most predisposed to obesity: the waist, sides of the waist, thighs, and abdomen. Liposuction of the waist gives the most dramatic effect of accentuating beautifully shaped buttocks. The collected fat is cleaned and prepared to be injected back into the body.

In the second stage, hundreds of tiny injections of your own cleaned fat are injected into the muscle layer, the skin, and deep layer between the skin and muscle. In order to ensure a uniform application, these fat deposits are injected at various injection depths in the body. This method gives a beautiful shape, the effect of which lasts a long time. Implants are usually recommended for patients who have an inadequate supply of their own fat to increase the mold by means of fat injections.

Gluteoplasty, or plastic buttocks, are buttock implants made of soft silicone and individually matched in size and shape. They are placed far away from the important nerve and bone area upon which you sit. With Gluteoplsty, the buttocks become more circular and tight. The entire procedure takes about 2 hours and is performed under local anesthesia.

Labiaplasty, or plastic labia, is designed to restore the external structure of the vagina by reducing and/or changing the shape of long and irregular labia. Giving birth, aging, and other factors can affect the beauty of the female genital organs. Labiaplasty can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, including vaginal rejuvenation.

Vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation, is a procedure that includes the contraction of the inner and outer muscles of the vagina, providing increased muscle tone, strength, and control.

Noninvasive body contouring can be divided into invasive technology, which requires surgical intervention, and non-invasive technology. The non-invasive technique uses a form of energy to destroy or change the fat cells. Types of energy used in the non-invasive body contouring technique include radio frequency currents, high-frequency ultrasound, the energy of the laser, and fat-freezing technology.

Sculpting uses a patented method of controlled freezing in order to reduce the number of fat cells. This process is absolutely safe for the skin and other tissues, because it is directed exclusively to fat cells. Once the cells are processed, they are gradually removed from the body by metabolic processes and, consequently, the fat fold at the treated area decreases. The procedure does not require anesthesia or pain killers. It is suitable for all types of skin and is associated with minimal risk of discomfort.

Thermage is a treatment that uses radio waves to reduce cellulite and fat folds. Radio energy provides deep controlled heating of fat cells in order to destroy them. The destroyed cells are derived through the lymph nodes. The thermage process also improves the elasticity of the tissues and blood circulation. Heat produced from radio waves stimulate collagen-producing cells, making the skin more supple and youthful. The results of this weight loss and rejuvenation continue to improve over a period of time.

The ultrasound method is similar to the thermage procedure, but uses an ultrasound, instead of radio waves, to heat and destroy cells.
