Breast Implants: Plastic Surgery Central Florida Only Uses the Most Up-to-date Technology

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, November 10, 2016

Evolution of Breast Implants

 

Cosmetic surgery in Orlando has seen quite the evolution. As technique and technology expand and evolve, surgeons like Dr. Richard Arabitg of Plastic Surgery Central Florida have had to continuously educate and expand their practices to stay up-to-date and competitive in the industry. While surgeons tried to meet the demand of enhancing a woman’s breasts, as early as the 1800’s, there was a plethora of trial and error. With vast experiments, doctors addressed symmetry issues to the desire for a larger breast size well into the 1950’s before the FDA approved anything solid (Thorpe, 2015). Fortunately for women today, techniques are aesthetically beautiful in addition to safe, tried and true products. Today, women’s breast implant options are wide, with a variety of shapes and sizes. This variety allows breast implants to be customizable to a degree that no pair look alike. The first official breast prosthesis implant surgery with a prosthesis filled with silicone gel was performed in 1962. Thomas Cronin and Frank Gerow, along with the Dow Corning Corporation developed the prosthesis in 1961. Augmentation Mammoplasty was the beginning of another surgical evolution (sanfranciscobreast.com, N.A.). The first model was popular, and surgeons learned better techniques and products through trial and error. Like earlier in history, we learned long-term effects on the body, and what was best for the future development of the surgery, and the products used in these surgeries.

 

Over the years, with great strides in technological advances, doctors like Dr. Richard Arabitg, a plastic surgeon in Orlando, FL, has evolved and continued education just as technology and techniques have. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, Dr. Arabitg has made it essential to use the most up-to-date technology that can be used from during your consultation to during and post-surgery.

 

Technology Advances

 

Today breast implants are safer, and more natural looking. Believe it or not, in the 1800’s, doctors tried meeting the demand for larger breasts by injecting harmful foreign substances into the woman’s body; things as harmful as cobra venom (Thorpe, 2015). Not exactly worth the risks, huh? Fatal side effects, and in many cases, a total mastectomy was required in order to save a patient’s life. Today, there are far less complications from breast augmentations, at the same time, doctors are able to offer women a level of customization to give each woman a truly unique figure. Surgeons can actually offer you the opportunity for the best you possible versus just a cookie-cutter look.

 

Techniques have evolved over the years. There are multiple point-of-entry possibilities for women. Doctors used to only make an incision under the breast to insert the breast implant. Through the years, surgeons have perfected different placements of the implants to achieve a different look. The placement of the implant can also fit more appropriately with the different body types. Different practices for the point of entry for breast augmentations include going in through the nipple/areola. The surgeon would make a small incision around the line of the woman’s areola. This type of incision leaves the woman with a less visible scar than that of one under the breast. This incision can rarely be detected by the naked eye. Another, less practiced, and highly specialized technique, is to use a Proctoscope and the point of entry is through the belly button. Of course, this type of procedure requires a highly skilled surgeon. There are pros and cons that come with this point of entry technique. Firstly, having the benefits of the breast augmentation without having any visible scars is hugely why this technique is sought out by women. However, there are limitations that come with this chosen point of entry. While the bonus of this virtually invisible incision is great, plastic surgeons are limited with the variety of breast implants options. Traditionally, surgeons are limited to using only saline for the implant using this procedure. The surgeon also has less control over the pocket dissection. This can greatly affect the end result of how the breast implants sits within the breast area for the woman (RealSelf, 2016). Another point of entry used is through the armpit. Sometimes doctors must use this or under the breast in the crease because the patient’s areola area is too small for an incision for breast implants. The best way to find out which is best for your body type, is to schedule a consult and have Dr. Arabitg use the latest technology to show you what the new you can look like.

Common Misconception: Plastic Surgery is Only for Women

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, October 06, 2016

We are each uniquely made with our own imperfections, and having the desire for cosmetic plastic surgery does not necessarily mean we are looking to be anything other than the best version of us possible. And while we often think of women as the primary candidate for plastic surgery, having the desire to better yourself is not limited to women.

 

Men strive to better themselves across the globe, and things are not behind closed doors like they used to be.

 

 

In 2015 there were 15.9 million total cosmetic plastic surgical procedures. This number combines minimally invasive, surgical cosmetics, reconstructive surgeries, and both men and women. What you may not realize, is that the number of men seeking plastic surgery is on the rise, and has been for many years. Men are venturing outside of the box too. No more limits on the type of plastic surgery procedures men are having done, and they are having them done openly. It’s not just eyelid lifts and nose jobs, although those two procedures still remain among the top elected cosmetic surgery among men (American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2016).

 

 

Orlando’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Aribitg can attest to the growing number of men seeking plastic surgery as a key ingredient in self-improvement. Men have become more comfortable about pursuing procedures such as butt lifts, butt implants, breast reduction, liposuction, chest and calf implants, and so on. The number of procedures that can be done for men is practically limitless, and men are finally realizing this and jumping on the cosmetic plastic surgery band wagon. And, why shouldn’t they? Women have been using plastic surgery as a go-to for self-improvement for decades, men deserve the same opportunities women have had in this effective boost in improvement.

 

 

Doctors are noticing more and more of men making up larger percentages of their total number of plastic surgery procedures. We live in a culture of wanting to stay young, fit, and flawless looking. Men in their forties are undergoing plastic surgery because they are looking for the woman in her late twenties to early thirties and they want to be attractive to them (Cosgrove-Mather, 2004). As the growing number of men make up for a percentage of overall plastic surgery procedures, men are also affecting the percentages by increasing the number of procedures for what was considered in the past as less mainstream procedures.

 

 

Plastic surgery in Orlando has seen a major increase in the variety of procedures being asked for by men. However, this is not centralized in Orlando, this is across the globe. And while these statistics are found all over the World, the United States leads the initiative because of its youth-craved culture. In places such as Florida and California we may see higher numbers because these states are coastal and the ever sought after beach body never goes out of season. You may also see higher numbers in places where celebrities tend to congregate, like New York. However, it’s not just the celebrities that are having these procedures done, men of all walks of life and professions are pursuing the route of cosmetic surgery to assist in their self-improvement efforts. According to an article by CBS, there are two main reasons that men seek out plastic surgery, and that is one, they wish to look younger, and the second, is that they seek to stay competitive in the workforce (Cosgrove-Mather, 2004). So in essence, that isn’t that different from the top reasons women seek plastic surgery.

 

 

With cosmetic surgery procedures being more common and affordable today, it is no surprise in the increase of patients. However, I believe that new technology has enabled surgeons to perform safer surgeries and procedures in addition to getting more effective results for their patients. Society also plays a major role in the increase in numbers. Acceptance is a great part of that. Not only are we a youth-driven society, we also are more accepting of people using plastic surgery, to improve themselves. We have seen dramatic increases in the past 15 years.

 

  • * Buttock lifts or Brazilian Butt Lifts- Have seen an increase of 252%
  • * Breast lifts- Have seen an increase of 89% since 2000
  • * Lower body lifts- These types of procedures are up 3,973% since the year 2000. It was almost unheard of 16 years ago.
  •  

Women have been doing it for decades, it’s about time men recognized they have this option too!

Pre Op Preparations: What You Need To Know

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, September 20, 2016

   No matter what kind surgery you are planning to have, being prepared ahead of time can ensure a smoother recovery in addition to a smoother process overall by lowering your risks of complications. While most doctors’ offices will, of course, provide you with a list of traditional preparations, sometimes it can feel like you are walking blindly into an abyss of not knowing what to expect. You feel like you need to find someone that has had the same surgery as the one that you are going to go through just to gain the knowledge from their hindsight. That insightful information is what this article seeks to provide for you. This will help to best prepare you for an easier recovery process, after all, organization is a key factor in things going well. A prepared patient is a patient with less probability of complications. There are always necessary steps and measures to take pre-surgery.

 

 

Pre-Op Prep

 

 

Medications- It is essential to have full disclosure with your doctor about any medications you are currently taking. Most of the time, doctors will ask that you stop taking your current medications before surgery. For some medications, the doctor may require you halt your medication routine a week or more before surgery depending on how long the medication may take to get out of your system. So it is suggested that you discuss your current medication regimen with your doctor during initial consultation. If you have not already done this, contact your doctor immediately to make sure you are cleared for surgery. Some medications can cause serious risks.

 

Diet- Many surgeries require eliminating certain foods from your diet a week or so prior to surgery. In most cases 24-48 before surgery you may be instructed to only consume liquids, only white foods/liquids, or even fast. Discuss this thoroughly with your doctor prior to your surgery date to ensure you are meeting their requirements.

 

Materials/Supplies- Depending on your surgery, you may require special supplies for after your surgery. For breast augmentation in Orlando, Dr. Richard Arabitg of Plastic Surgery Central Florida always suggests that prior to surgery you go through your home to ensure a peaceful environment during your recovery process. This could mean gathering plenty of pillows and soft blankets to be readily available for you to remain as comfortable as possible during your recovery process. Prepare your home with foods and beverages in accordance with your post op instructed diet so you won’t have to run out to get any last minute things. When it comes time, having someone else to run those type of errands can be difficult to find.

 

Aftercare and Ride Home- Make sure you have a reliable driver for your ride home after your surgery. It may be smart to even have more than one person as a contingency plan. Life happens, and you are going to need a solid form of transportation home. Aftercare is also important. It is suggested that you have a reliable person you are close to on speed dial. This could be a friend, a spouse, or family; even a neighbor in case of an emergency. As a person who loves lists, I have always found a tangible list of emergency contacts and their numbers far more efficient than just a digital phone book alone. This is also a good idea just in case you have any emergency medical needs; you could have the list to give to anyone responding to your emergency.

 

Pet Care- While we love our pets as part of the family, sometimes it is just better to find someone to care for your pets while you are in recovery. Animals love us, and they want to be close when we are under the weather, it is in their nature. A dog or cat can easily trip you in addition take away from your rest as you care for them. It is best to direct all your attention on your recovery and nurturing yourself during this process. Before you know it, they will be back home where they belong.

 

Ask Questions/Research- It is important to get a good idea about the average recovery time for your surgery. This will allow you to assess if you need to contact your doctor. Find out what the possible complications are for the surgery itself in addition to possible post op complications. Ask about all the different options for anesthesia to aftercare during recovery. In most cases, your doctor will have a variety of suggestions for you to choose. Finding what best suits you is important to your ease of recovery.

 

 

   So if you’re planning on having cosmetic surgery in Orlando, Dr. Richard Arabitg of Plastic Surgery Central Florida recommends that you efficiently prepare yourself and your environment prior to your surgery date. Pre-Op Preparations play a significant role in a smoother recovery process.

The Best Time of the Year for Major Cosmetic Surgery: Fall & Winter

Dr Richard Arabitg - Monday, August 15, 2016

  Whenever you make up your mind on a significant decision like having major cosmetic surgery done, you want to expedite it right away. However, planning is essential in having fewer complications arise in addition to being ready in optimum time. If you’re like me, when it is swimsuit season and all the beautiful bodies start becoming less covered you tend to focus on what you’re looking at in the mirror. And if you make your mind up that you are going to do something about it, you want the results immediately. There are some major factors you want to consider when deciding on what time of year you are going to have the cosmetic work done.

 

 

Fall & Winter Seasons

 

 

  There are a number of reasons that Fall and Winter are the best times of the year for all major cosmetic surgery. For many procedures like breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and lifts, you want to be swimsuit ready. Immediately following these types of procedures, you are not going to want to be out in the open. While different people recovery and react differently to these types of procedures, it is a major surgical procedure and scars fade over time. If you were to have breast augmentation in Orlando, Dr. Richard Arabitg and his staff recommend giving yourself time to heal. Having your cosmetic surgery done in the Fall or Winter would prepare you for the Spring and Summer seasons without pressure. Having major surgery during bikini season can leave you feeling left out from all the summer fun in the sun. When you plan accordingly for surgery to be done in the “off season”, you would be good and ready for those pretty summer dresses and that eye catching new bathing suit! However, it goes beyond just being ready from an appearance perspective, it is recommended that you limit your sun exposure after surgery. Little to no sun exposure will allow your scars to heal faster not to mention that sun and heat exposure intensify side effects of your cosmetic surgery. The sun and heat exposure can increase swelling and increase the severity of scarring. The sun will make your scar darken, avoiding the sun can help lighten the hyperpigmentation of the surgical scars. That fact alone should deter you from wanting to be in the sun shortly following your surgery. If you have your major cosmetic work done in the cooler seasons, you are limiting the amount of heat you are exposed to in addition you will be primarily covered in clothing for most of the recovery duration (Deuber, 2014). If you are planning on having a facelift done, it is essential that you wear wide brimmed hats to keep yourself protected from any excess sun exposure. Most patients feel fairly well after a week or two post-surgery, but do not mistake that as being able to resume completely; you still need to be cautious of your surgical areas. You can ease back gradually into your normal lifestyle. It is also recommended that a safe amount of time to avoid or limit sun exposure post cosmetic surgery is up to one year. This lessens the severity of side effects as well allows optimum results for your cosmetic surgery. You are prone to sunburn following your cosmetic surgery in addition to the other side effects (The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, 2016).

 

 

  Dr. Richard Arabitg of Plastic Surgery Central Florida is a double board certified plastic surgeon in Orlando that comes highly recommended. Fluent in Spanish, servicing varied communities in Orlando, his office is even featured in New Beauty magazine. Dr. Arabitg suggests that his patients be prepared by taking the necessary measures both before and after their surgical procedures. By following guidelines and booking your surgery during the fall and winter months, as the weather warms up even more, you will be ready to shed some clothing and be the envy of the season!

Facial and Hand Trauma: Known for its Complexity and Difficulty, and Dr. Arabitg Specializes in It

Dr Richard Arabitg - Sunday, July 10, 2016

 

Facial and hand trauma can be some of the most difficult corrective or reparative procedures to perform. Due to this extreme factor of difficulty, many surgeons stray away from them and lean towards less complex procedures. However, there are some — like Dr. Arabitg of Plastic Surgery Central Florida — that welcome challenge. Dr. Arabitg has been a surgeon for many years and one of his specialties happens to be facial and hand trauma related operations.

 

There are so many intricacies in the human hand; tiny bones, multiple joints, connecting ligaments, the list goes on and on. Traumatic events that occur within the hand can be devastating. No one truly knows the value of a single hand — heck even a single finger — until an accident happens.

 

Accidents happen every day. Car crashes, spilled drinks, trips, falls, so on and so forth. But what happens if one of those accidents leaves you with damage to one of your hands, or worse complete loss of function in your hand. This can be detrimental because your hands are so vitally important to every day functions. Shaking hands, opening doors, pressing buttons, these are just a few normal functions that we encounter every single day. Losing the ability to do any one of those actions can be severely troubling and upsetting.

 

Many people that have serious trauma to their hands turn to a great plastic surgeon in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Arabitg. Although many surgeons shy away from these procedures because of their difficulty, Dr. Arabitg actually specializes in these kinds of surgeries.

 

Dr. Arabitg — born and raised in Orlando, Florida — has been practicing cosmetic surgery for many years and has accumulated a vast amount of experience with cosmetic and reparative surgeries. Although many other surgeons stray away from facial reconstructive surgery and hand reparative surgery, Dr. Arabitg welcomes these challenges, especially when thinking about the damage the disability can create. Dr. Arabitg also loves giving back to his hometown, the town that raised him and made him the surgeon he is today.

 

Not only does he focus on hand trauma related procedures, but Dr. Arabitg also specializes in facial plastic surgery. Whether it is due to a disability a client was born with or a sustained injury, Dr. Arabitg pursues these bothersome problems relentlessly. He also understands the need for plastic surgery in some cases because his keen aesthetic eye can see the pain it causes in his patients. Facial injuries or deformities can cause many problems in someone’s confidence. It can cripple a man/woman, not allowing them to fully enjoy their lives because they are always worried about what others are thinking about them.

 

Well at Plastic Surgery Central Florida there is a doctor who truly cares. With his heart being deeply vested in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Arabitg enjoys giving back to his community in doing what he loves most; making miracles happen. Only his patients can truly understand the importance of the miracles he creates through plastic surgery. We all live in a society that is hypercritical about appearance and self-confidence, so it is of utmost importance to look and feel your best, but how do you do that if every time you look in mirror, you aren’t comfortable in your own skin?

 

That’s where Dr. Arabitg comes in. A caring plastic surgeon in Orlando, Florida that will give you back the confidence you’re searching for. The confidence to get back on your feet and accomplish those goals you’ve been putting off, the bravery to socialize and meet new people. Dr. Arabitg loves seeing his clients enjoy the results of successful surgery because he understands the impact of looking and feeling great.

 

So although some surgeons are scared to perform surgeries due to facial and hand trauma, look no further than Orlando, Florida for a surgeon that isn’t scared to give you back the confidence to feel great, or even just the ability to use something as vital as your hand. When looking into Orlando cosmetic surgery, look to Dr. Arabitg and trust that you are in good hands.

 

Get Rid of Razor Bumps and Hair Altogether, with Laser Hair Removal

Dr Richard Arabitg - Saturday, June 18, 2016

We have hair all over our bodies, whether we want it there or not! We aren’t given the choice to place hair here, take hair from there, but what if we did have that choice? What if you could choose to take away hair effectively and replace it with soft, smooth skin? Would you do it? Because I definitely would!

 

Welcome to the 21st century people! The era of aesthetics, beauty, perception, and consciousness. Everyone has those body parts and areas of doubt they are always self-conscious about; wondering what others think about them. Some people are self-conscious about their weight, some about their looks, but one area of concern that troubles a great deal of people is body hair. Whether it be on your bikini line, legs, arms, back, or wherever else you’re growing hair, those prickly hairs can be such a pain!

 

Now most people that don’t like something about themselves usually change it, that is if it’s even possible to change. Body hair isn’t too hard to get rid of, but it’s a great bother to keep it gone! Shaving is one way of getting the job done, but who wants to sit down for 30 minutes maintaining that soft, smooth skin? It is such a pain to lather up and use that dull razor to remove those prickles. There’s also the razor bumps, cuts, darkened skin, and plenty of other consequences of constantly shaving those areas that can be sensitive! Waxing is another option, but who wants to pay someone to spread hot wax on sensitive areas and rip away the hairs? Ouch!

 

There are, however, other options. Welcome to Orlando, Florida. Sunny as can be and hotter than you can imagine! So those pesky little hairs that eventually form your winter coat are not so necessary. Need help? Look no further than Plastic Surgery Central Florida, the one stop destination to remove those hairs so much more effectively than that old razor at home. Laser hair removal has been around for a while and is one of the most effective skin care treatments for removing hair and maintaining a smooth skin surface. Skin care treatments in Orlando have become more popular, especially since it’s so hot and also the perfect opportunity to show off those long tanned legs!

 

At Plastic Surgery Central Florida — the home of Dr. Arabitg — we facilitate laser hair removals for clients every day. These treatments are much more effective than shaving and it lasts so much longer! Laser hair removal is the most effective way to get rid of pesky hairs on bikini lines, legs, arms, back, and even your face! This is an amazing breakthrough for hair removal because the other options have terrible side effects! Painful, irritating, and time consuming are a few adjectives to describe older methods of hair removal, but laser treatments are quick, painless, and long lasting.

 

Now you might be wondering about price, but let’s point something else out as well. Laser hair removal can cost more at one time, but it lasts much longer than the other methods. Buying razors and lotions or getting wax treatments done can be costly over time, especially when you’re doing it every few days! Laser hair removal not only is more effective, safe, and comfortable, but it also keeps hair away for months at a time. No shaving or waxing methods can prove to be that effective.

 

Getting rid of razor bumps and hair altogether has never been so easy with laser hair removal. This quick and painless treatment is something many clients are choosing to do because of it’s amazing benefits and time-saving effectiveness. So the next time you’re thinking about picking up that razor or heading to the salon for a wax, just remember that you’ll be doing the same thing again shortly after. Instead of wasting time and money on those ineffective processes, turn to one of the top plastic surgeons in Orlando, Florida, and head into Plastic Surgery Central Florida to get laser hair removal!

Dr. Richard Arabitg has Perfected Neck Lift Surgery to Give You the Youthful Appearance You’ve Been Longing For

Dr Richard Arabitg - Sunday, May 22, 2016

 

We all have insecurities. Maybe you feel uncomfortable with your legs, your skin, or your chest. But what about the first thing people see? When you’re insecure about your neck, it can ruin every encounter you have with a person. Are they staring directly at my neck, or just having a conversation with me? You think. It’s easy to get carried away with your insecurities, but it's even easier to get stressed about them or even let them define you. Luckily, Orlando plastic surgeon Dr. Arabitg can perform a neck lift in Orlando to make you look as young as you feel.

 

Neck lifts are often done in conjunction with brow lifts and face lifts. It’s natural for neck skin to sag a little as you get older. Candidates for neck lifts usually have excess fat and skin around the lower face and neck, general loose neck skin, or excess fatty deposits under the chin. If you’ve recently lost a bit of weight, that can also cause the excess skin to appear. Other causes could be anything from environmental conditions, stress, or hereditary conditions.

 

For an excess skin removal procedure, Dr. Arabitq will simply trim and move certain pieces of skin into place. Different types of anesthesia can be discussed depending on what you’re personally comfortable with. A neck band will usually be mandated for you to wear for a week unless otherwise stated.

 

A few things to note before a neck lift surgery:

  • If you smoke, you’ll want to quit for at least four weeks before the surgery
  • Plan to rest for one week after the surgery.
  • You will be prohibited from taking specific medications before the surgery just in case, since some of them may cause excess bleeding.
  • Certain allergies could cause a reaction to the anesthesia, so make sure you tell your doctor beforehand what those are.
  • As always, while you prep for surgery, make sure you’re putting nutritious foods into your body to ensure a quick recovery.
  •  

What can you expect to feel after this surgery? Swelling and bruising will occur as well as burning or pulling sensations or numbness. These feelings are completely normal and do not indicate danger, so just make sure to monitor yourself for signs of infection, like pus or unusual discharge.

 

After the surgery, you’ll want to wear loose clothing to avoid pulling clothes too tightly over your head. You’ll also want to have someone stay with you to look after you for about a day after the surgery, just in case any complications arise. As stated previously, some patients can return to work in a week, but your recovery could last for up to 14 days. Additionally, athletic events should be postponed for 3 weeks after the surgery to allow time for optimum healing.

 

Let’s face it—you don’t need another thing to worry about. If your neck causes you distress, there is a simple solution. Talk to Dr. Arabitq about your options today so you can start focusing on the things that really matter.

 

Liposuction: What Are the Benefits?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, April 28, 2016

First we must answer the question, what is liposuction? Liposuction removes fat deposits all over the body. Common areas people utilize liposuction are the hips, neck, thighs, arms, and abdomen. You might want to use liposuction to remove undesirable areas of fat around the “flanks” of your body (love-handles) or a pesky area around your thighs that won’t quit. Liposuction can benefit the way you view your body, creating a more balanced look as you go about your daily routine.

 

Liposuction is not a treatment used to fight obesity. It is recommended that liposuction be used only after measures have been taken to diet and exercise. Should an area persist, remaining fatty, liposuction can solve that problem.

 

A common misconception about liposuction is that it removes cellulite. Liposuction removes fat cells only, but it does so permanently and thus overall affects the overall contour of the body.

 

So, let’s start from the beginning. The first thought of liposuction came into being in the 1920s, when a French surgeon attempted to remove fat from a model, resulting in her developing gangrene in one of her legs. Surgeons and doctors continued to make progress in the field of fat removal and cosmetic surgery, and finally modern liposuction emerged in 1982. Dr. Illouz developed “The Illouz method,” a method of liposuction that involves using high vacuum suction and a breakdown of fats in the body. As technology developed, Dr. Alan Klein developed the “tumescent technique.” This technique allowed for the procedure to be done with an anesthetic through intravenous, rather than a general anesthetic. Through the invention of ultrasound and thermal lipolysis, liposuction has evolved into a heavily practiced and researched procedure. Because of this, recovery periods are shorter, blood loss is low, and even more fat cells can be removed per procedure.

General, liposuction is used for the benefit of positivity about one’s appearance. However, liposuction can treat medical conditions such as lipomas (fatty tumors), gynecomastia (fat tissue grouped around mens’ nipples) and lipodystrophy syndrome, a syndrome that causes uneven distribution of fat and causes discomfort in the body.

 

Additionally, if you have lost over 40 percent of your Body Mass Index, liposuction proves useful in removing extra skin and fat cells remaining from before the extreme weight loss.

Throughout the surgery, one of many methods may be used to complete the procedure. Methods may include tumescent liposuction, wet liposuction, super-wet liposuction, ultrasound assisted liposuction, power assisted liposuction, and laser assisted liposuction. Dry liposuction is heavily outdated and should not be used in a modern setting, for the risks include high chance of blood loss and bruising.

 

Receive your liposuction consultation today with a plastic surgeon in Orlando. Your liposuction in Orlando will improve your body positivity, the contour of your body, and get your body ready for the beach this summer. Don’t let your hard work to lose weight be for naught; liposuction can remove the abnormalities left over from your weight-loss.

 

As always, consult with a surgeon about the risks and benefits of liposuction before continuing with the liposuction procedure. After the many developments in liposuction study, risks are at an all time low, but a plastic surgeon in Orlando will proceed with the care and caution that you deserve.


Get Bikini Body Ready for This Summer with a Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr Richard Arabitg - Sunday, March 27, 2016

 

It’s been years since you’ve slipped into that polka-dotted bikini—and that’s because you don’t want to. Things have changed a lot since your twenties. The days of longing for tighter buttocks seem to increase with every passing moment. Defeated, you think “My youth is over.” But what you don’t know is that plastic surgeons in Orlando offer the Brazilian Butt Lift, a procedure to give you the shapely, smooth, and round buttocks you thought would forever be a dream.

 

Now, we know you’re on the lookout for an easy fix, but we understand your skepticism. So let’s consider all of the information. What is a Brazilian Butt Lift, what can it do for you, and how is it done?

 

The Butt Lift is a procedure known to tighten and round the butt. It’s usually a butt augmentation done through gluteal implants or fat grafting. As opposed to gluteal implants, fat grafting allows the patient to enhance their buttocks using natural aspects of the body.

 

Here’s how it works. Liposuction removes excess fat from the patient’s body in places such as the back, abdomen, thighs, and hips. After a process of purification of the fat cells, the plastic surgeon will then transfer them to the buttocks. Plastic Surgery of Central Florida is dedicated to producing the most naturally shaped buttocks that you could ever want.

 

A butt lift with fat grafting lasts for the rest of your life. Of course, upkeep such as exercise is required to maintain the shape of the buttocks, but the fat placed there is completely and forever yours.

 

There are, however, some risks to a butt lift such as asymmetry, oil cyst formation, fat necrosis, and prolonged swelling. But Dr. Arabitq dedicates himself to giving the highest quality of care to each and every patient, making sure to only recommend procedures that are completely for you.

 

How do you know if you’re the right candidate for this procedure? A good candidate will have realistic expectations and be in good health to undergo this relatively invasive procedure. A good candidate will also have pounds to spare. With not enough fat to give, the procedure might not give maximum benefit to the patient.

 

If you do decide to go through this procedure, it’s important not to smoke a month prior. Smoking will increase likelihood of complications and also your chance of rejecting the fat. Prepare a loved one to take you to and from the procedure and stay with you for the first 24 hours after at least.

 

After the surgery, try to stay away from sitting on extremely hard surfaces. We suggest bringing a pillow for comfort and safety. Additionally, sleeping flat on your back can put unnecessary pressure on your buttocks, so try an alternative sleeping position during the healing process. If your work does not consist of rigorous labor, you might be good to return after two weeks. Full recovery is expected in around 2 months, and full results can be seen in around 6 months.

 

Imagine looking in the mirror and forgetting your age. Don’t let anxieties about your body stop you from living a happy life. Don’t give up, because it’s not over for you. You can be bikini body ready in only 6 months, and feel comfortable in your own skin again. With a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. Arabitq can make you feel sexy. You’ll never dread going to the beach again.

 


 

A Lot of Patients Come In Thinking They Need Liposuction when They Really Need a Tummy Tuck

Dr Richard Arabitg - Saturday, February 20, 2016

When it comes to weight loss procedures, there are a wide range of misconceptions about all of the options available. The internet, the media, and even family and friends can give your conflicting information about your options for weight loss. From procedures that reduce fat cells to those that tighten up the abdomen, it can be confusing and difficult to decide what is right for you. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, we strive to bring you clarification, so you can know which option will fit your desired results. If you’re looking to tighten up and tone areas that are suffering from the effects of age, weight loss, post-pregnancy sagging, and more, you might not know the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction. In fact, a lot of patients come in thinking they need liposuction, when really they need a tummy tuck.

 

Liposuction:

 

Orlando Liposuction, also known as “Lipo,” is a procedure used to remove deposits of fat cells across the body or in concentrated areas. During this procedure, a thing hose is inserted, and the fat cells are vacuumed out, to create a more slim, sculpted appearance. It is commonly used on the hips, stomach, upper arms, buttocks, thighs, ankles, and knees. Liposuction results in a more contoured appearance, and Dr. Arabitg has the artistry and experience to help you love the way you look. Dr. Arabitg makes “love handles” and the dreaded “muffin top” a thing of the past. Liposuction can be performed under local, regional, or general anesthesia, and Dr. Arabitg will go through every step to ensure that the procedure is a perfect fit for your health, lifestyle, and desired results. Although liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, and results can be affected by diet and exercise, the results of the procedure tend to be permanent. If needed, a second round of liposuction can be used at a later date, to achieve the complete end goal.

 

Tummy Tuck:

 

Dr. Arabitg is an expert in the field of abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck. This procedure results in a tight, toned midsection, creating the impressive abs you’ve been dreaming of. With an Orlando tummy tuck, Dr. Arabitg can remove bulges of fat and loose, saggy skin after pregnancy, weight loss, stress and health related weight gain, and even the stubborn fat you’ve been trying to eliminate for years. Scars are almost imperceptible, hidden easily by the line of underwear or a bikini. Recovery time is minimal, making the procedure a great option for anyone’s lifestyle. A tummy tuck involves removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen, and tightening of the fascia and muscle that makes up the abdominal wall. With the options of either a full or mini abdominoplasty, and anesthesia dependent on each different option, this procedure can be tailored to suit your unique needs.

 

 

Dr. Arabitg can help you decide which option is right for you.

 

When performed together, or with other surgeries like a breast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck and liposuction can be greatly enhanced, producing optimal results. However, Dr. Arabitg will never pressure you to undergo more procedures than you want, need, or are comfortable with. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, your safety and comfort is our team’s main priority. When you schedule a consultation for cosmetic surgery, Dr. Arabitg will walk you through the steps, answer any and all questions you may have, and can even show you digital reconstructions of how your results will look, using the most up-to-date technology.

You deserve to feel comfortable in your skin, ready to live the life you’ve dreamed without letting fear stop you. Although there is some confusion about the differences between a tummy tuck and liposuction, Dr. Arabitg can walk you through the differences, pros, and cons for each procedure, to ensure you can get the results you want. He will tailor the procedures to your unique needs, while being mindful throughout of your health and safety. If you’ve tried dieting and exercise, and nothing seems to be working for you, you might just need the extra boost of liposuction or a tummy tuck.
