Candidates for Body Contouring

Dr Richard Arabitg - Monday, January 12, 2015

Candidates for body contouringare adult men and women who have recently lost a large amount of weight after pregnancy, made lifestyle changes, received bariatric surgery, have remained at their current weight for a year or more, can commit to weight maintenance instead of losing or gaining more, are in good physical and mental health, do not smoke, have realistic expectations for results, and are willing to devote themselves to the proper recovery requirements. If you are a candidate for body contouring, you should discuss your goals with your Orlando cosmetic surgeon, and work together to create a plan for timing and desired results. Body contouring can correct sagging in the abdomen, thighs, rear, arms, breasts, and more. If you’ve recently experienced significant and dramatic weight loss, don’t let loose skin stop you from feeling comfortable and satisfied with your appearance. Sagging skin may not always tighten up naturally over time; body contouring is the solution. With long-lasting results and dramatic appearances that are evident immediately following procedures, body contouring is a safe and effective way to change your appearance for the better. With a tighter, more toned body, you can feel youthful and radiant once again.

Benefits of Liposuction

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Liposuction in Orlando is a procedure that involves the removal of fat from the body, using suction. During the procedure, a small tube or cannula is inserted into the area to be treated by small incisions in the skin. Suction is applied, and fat is evacuated from the area through the tube. Because stubborn pockets of fat may not be diminished with diet and exercise alone, liposuction is a great way to eliminate specific fat deposits. These days, liposuction techniques are safe, easy, and less painful than they were in the past. Tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted liposuction, and laser assisted liposuction are all new techniques that have been developed over years of research and testing. They are less invasive and painful than past methods of performing liposuction, and may not even require general anesthesia. Liposuction can slim and reshape areas of the body, removing excess fat and improving the contours and proportions of the areas it is applied to. The benefits include fat reduction in the thighs, hips, rear, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner knees, chest area, cheeks, chin, neck, calves, and even the ankles. It works well alone, or in conjunction with a facelift, tummy tuck, or breast reduction/augmentation.


The Objective of a Breast Lift

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, November 20, 2014

There are many factors that cause a woman’s breasts to change over time. As a woman goes through life, aging can decrease the elasticity of your skin, and therefore breasts are not as uplifted as they used to be. Breast lift surgery, also known as a mastopexy, aims to reshape and provide a new breast contour for patients.


Whether pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, or other genetic factors have caused a woman’s breasts to change and lose their elasticity, a breast lift aims to remove the excess skin and tighten the tissue surrounding the breast. A breast lift reduction also aims to reduce an enlarged areola that may occur over time. The end goal of a breast lift is to rejuvenate your figure. It is important to keep in mind that the breast lift procedure does not change the size or shape of your breasts. 

BOTOX Cosmetic

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, November 06, 2014

If there are certain facial features you are unhappy with, there are many cosmetic surgery procedures available to provide you with desired results, and BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of them. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment available by prescription to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet by the eyes in adults. BOTOX Cosmetic works to reduce the moderate to severe wrinkles that may have formed on your face with very little risk of side effects to patients.


Wrinkles are formed on our faces when we contract specific muscles. For example, when we squint, the muscles around our eyes contract and therefore cause crow’s feet. Wrinkles are also formed between our brows when we frown or concentrate. While muscle contraction is one of the main contributing factors to the creation of wrinkles, it is not the only one—a combination of factors cause wrinkles. These factors include changes in our cells, collagen depletion, or damages that have been caused by free radicals. Regardless of the cause of the wrinkles, the underlying muscle activity must be controlled in order to reduce their appearance.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr Richard Arabitg - Monday, October 20, 2014

Have you ever wished for a more voluptuous, curvy figure? Are you tired of having a flat or sagging rear? The Brazilian butt lift is a revolutionary procedure that can give you a fuller, perkier, more youthful buttocks. Great for both men and women, the Brazilian butt lift is a natural way to augment your behind, whether you’re looking for prominence, firmness, or a curvier shape. This procedure consists of injections to the buttocks area with your own natural body fat, after it is removed through liposuction. It results in a pure, natural augmentation made of your own body tissue, ensuring excellent recovery and safety. The results of a Brazilian butt lift are long-lasting and dramatic, giving you that youthful perkiness you’ve been wishing for. Not only does it result in a re-sculpting of the buttocks, but an overall improvement in the legs and midsection areas, too. Although the amount of fat that can be injected depends entirely on the patient’s body, time may be taken before the Orlando plastic surgery is performed in order to allow more fat to build up, if the patient wants a more dramatic result. Once the fat is injected, it results in a smooth, natural appearance unmatched by other forms of buttocks augmentation.


Dr Richard Arabitg - Monday, October 20, 2014
Aside from eliminating fine lines, a facelift eliminates loose, sagging skin on the face and neck, bags under the eyes, deep wrinkles, and even excess fat. Facelifts Orlando don’t involve large amounts of cutting and scarring; requiring incisions only made under the hairline. This allows for no visible scarring after the healing period. In order to make sure a facelift is right for you, Dr. Arabitg will conduct an evaluation of all personal health and family history, and analyze your face. This ensures safety during and after the procedure, as well as allowing him to help you determine your optimal results. In doing this, Dr. Arabitg’s goal is to provide safety, comfort, and an environment of open communication for his patients. By scheduling a consultation at Plastic Surgery Central Florida, you are securing your ability to ask any questions you may be curious about, and addressing all concerns that are causing you feelings of unease or stress.

Who May Benefit from a Chin Implant?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, October 09, 2014

For patients who have larger noses, a chin implant can benefit them by giving the illusion that the nose is smaller. Patients with a short or indistinct neck may also benefit from a chin implant. Because the chin has such a large influence on the shape of the neck, an implant can help the neck look elongated and more prominent. 

A chin implant is not one size fits all—it comes in various shapes and sizes, and it is tailored to each patient. The implant is placed over the existing bone in the chin to increase the size of the chin; the implant does not remove any of the existing bone structure.  The appropriate implant shape and size is determined throughout consultations with an Orlando plastic surgeon.
