Plastic Surgery was Once Considered Taboo, but Not Anymore!

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Although once considered taboo, cosmetic surgery has grown to be one of the most accepted, common, and popular ways of improving physical appearance. The media is constantly bombarded with talks of rhinoplasty, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, facelifts, Botox, and more. In the past, Orlando cosmetic surgery was a privilege considered only for the rich and famous. It was seen as quite controversial and ostentatious, and wasn’t pursued by people outside of the entertainment industry. However, this is no longer the case. Aside from growing in popularity, cosmetic procedures have also become more affordable and accessible. Although cosmetic procedures are not generally covered by insurance, many plastic surgery centers offer affordable payment plans or financial assistance. Cosmetic surgery can be performed in a medical center or private office location, with the number of locations that offer procedures growing every day. However, the increase in number of cosmetic surgery centers may allow customers to become confused or easily manipulated. It is extremely important to go to a knowledgeable, experienced cosmetic surgeon for all procedures.

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. 

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.

Why Would Dr. Arabitg Recommend Rhinoplasty?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, April 17, 2014

Rhinoplasty, or more commonly known as nose job surgery, is a procedure that enhances a patient’s facial harmony, and can also be used for correcting breathing issues caused by structural defects in the nose. One of the most common causes of breathing impairments is a deviated septum. A deviated septum is a condition in which the nasal septum is significantly off center, making it difficult to breath. Usually, people who have a deviated septum have a significant difference in size of their nasal passages. 

A person who is interested in having Orlando rhinoplasty would be attempting to correct some of the previously mentioned conditions, or are simply trying to enhance the appearance of their nose. Other benefits of rhinoplasty include: increased self-confidence, improved breathing, improved proportions of the nose, correcting an injury to the nose and straightening the bridge of the nose. The surgery itself is remarkably easy and not complex. The process of the surgery begins with an initial evaluation. In this first step the patients concerns are addressed, as well as any recommendations that Dr. Arabitg may have for the surgery. Usually, photographs are obtained to help with pre-operative planning and for documentation to be used for post-operative results.
