Cosmetic Surgery Orlando

Are you Qualified for Rhinoplasty?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, April 28, 2015

If an Orlando cosmetic surgeon believes that a patient is not medically or psychologically suited to a surgery, they may not carry out the procedure for preserving the health and safety of the patient. A total physical examination is also important, to make sure that the patient can withstand the effects of sedation, surgery, and recovery. An anesthesiologist can determine the safety of anesthesia use based on a patient’s lifestyle, health, and medical history. If you suffer from allergies to certain medications or anesthesias, if you have certain heart defects, if you smoke, if you are overweight, or if you are pregnant you may not be a candidate for surgery. It is important for surgeons to protect your health and safety above all else, so a full medical evaluation is necessary. It is also necessary to record the skin type, existing scars, and skin condition of the patient, along with the anatomical structures of the patient’s nose. A surgeon will take note of the angle at which the nose projects out from their face, the location and size of the nasal tissue and bone, the condition of the septum, the nasal valves, the nasal lining, the tip of the nose, and more. Sometimes, tests such as a mirror test or vasoconstriction exams can be performed to evaluate a patient before plastic surgery. The Cottle's maneuver can be performed to detect nasal valve disorders that will need to be corrected to encourage unobstructed breathing.

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.

What to Look for When Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The first step to finding a good cosmetic surgeon is looking into their status in regards to board certification. The only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). If an Orlando cosmetic surgeon is not board certified by the ABPS, they may not be as well-trained and specialized in cosmetic surgery as a surgeon who is. In the medical field, most doctors are able to perform surgical procedures, but this does not mean they are qualified or even have any experience with such procedures. Another important aspect of choosing a surgeon is if they are a member of prestigious plastic surgery societies. If the surgeon has membership with the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), they may be a much better candidate than a surgeon who does not. Membership to ASAPS ensures that a surgeon is both board certified, and has a wealth of experience with cosmetic procedures. ASAPS is an invitation-only society, consisting of the top cosmetic surgeons in the nation.

Post-Operative Instructions for Rhinoplasty Surgery

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Many rhinoplasty surgeries are performed as outpatient procedures at either hospitals or surgical centers. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, Dr. Richard Arabitg performs all surgeries right in our office. An anesthesiologist is present before, during and after the time of the surgery. While rhinoplasty surgery is not usually a surgery that patients must be kept over night for, a means of transportation should be arranged for the patient after the surgery and it is recommended that somebody stay with the patient the first night. After the procedure, the patient should be on bed rest and have the head elevated on at least 2-3 pillows so that the face is at an upward angle. 

A patient should expect swelling and bruising of the nose, upper lip, cheeks and around the eyes for several days after the surgery. Using ice packs will help to minimize the length in time that the bruising will last. Some patients have found that using frozen bags of vegetables, such as a frozen bag of peas, works just as well. While there are many benefits to rhinoplasty surgery, there are also risks that come along with the procedure, just as there are many risks with any surgery. Some of the risks that come along with rhinoplasty are infection, reoccurring nosebleeds after surgery, scaring of the nose and surrounding areas, trouble breathing through the nose while healing, pain and swelling following surgery and numbness around the nose that will usually fade away as the nose heals.

There Has Been a 37% Increase in Breast Augmentations in the Last 10 Years

Dr Richard Arabitg - Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Breast augmentation is an Orlando cosmetic surgery involving enlargement and shaping of the breasts, through insertion of saline solution or silicone gel implants. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, we know that women may decide to undergo a breast augmentation procedure for many reasons, but the result is always a remarkable improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem. Studies indicate that after an augmentation, women report enhancements in physical health, appearance, social life, and sexual function. Additionally, they reported lasting happiness with their breast implants. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery today. With over 290,000 women receiving implants per year, there has been a 37% increase in the last ten years.

The most frequent grounds for pursuing augmentation are for aesthetic reasons, reconstruction, or revision of previous cosmetic surgeries. When breast augmentations are pursued for reconstructive purposes, they are highly effective for correcting abnormalities, as a result of trauma, disease, or genetics. Implants can even improve one’s appearance after injuries, and surgeries such as mastectomies. When pursued for aesthetic or revision purposes, breast augmentations can be the best way to improve self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s body. After an unsatisfactory cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, breast augmentation can fix any previously unsatisfactory results. Aesthetically, breast augmentation results in dramatically improved feelings of satisfaction with one’s appearance and body.

Tummy Tuck

Dr Richard Arabitg - Wednesday, May 14, 2014

When exercise and diet are not enough to tackle unsightly or embarrassing stomach fat, Plastic Surgery Central Florida provides relief in the form of abdominoplasty. Also known as a “tummy tuck,” abdominoplasty is a procedure in which skin and fat are removed from the abdomen, resulting in a slimmer, contoured stomach with minimal scarring. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Arabitg, who's located in Orlando, FL, specializes in performing both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, such as abdominoplasty, liposuction, breast reduction surgery, rhinoplasty, etc.

Whether due to weight loss or childbirth, abdominoplasty allows for patients with excess skin or weakened stomach muscles to regain a firmer, thinner stomach. During the procedure, Dr. Arabitg makes several incisions so as to free, then tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. In the process, he trims the surrounding skin to fit the new figure. If conventional dieting and workout routines fail to minimize a sagging, lumpy, or protruding waistline, abdominoplasty is a reliable option for people whose muscles have been stretched beyond keeping elasticity. For those whose navels are the product of heredity, aging, or a combination of the above, abdominoplasty provides a lasting solution to a frustrating, lingering problem. Overall, it takes Dr. Arabtig a matter of hours to reverse what took years to appear and accumulate.
