What is Body Contouring?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, March 26, 2015

Even after someone has lost a significant amount of weight, a person may still not feel completely satisfied with their appearance. Although he/she may be excited about their progress, they know that there are more steps that need to be taken to get to their ultimate goal.  They are unhappy with the sagging, loose skin left behind after the weight loss. If this sounds like you, you could be a candidate for body contouring. Don’t let loose or flabby skin make you feel self-conscious. With body contouring, your appearance after weight loss can be greatly enhanced. Body contouring can boost your confidence, quality of life, and attractiveness or sex appeal. Body contouring can also minimize the discomfort of excess skin, smooth out areas of the body that were stubborn to your fat loss, and allow you to be more active and toned!

Just Like Any Surgery, Liposuction has Minor Risks

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, March 10, 2015

The minor risks of Liposuction may include temporary swelling, soreness, bruising, scarring, or baggy skin. Other risks can include color changes to the skin, or uneven skin surface. More dangerous risks are extremely rare, and should be discussed with an Orlando plastic surgeon. Although liposuction is not a replacement for diet and exercise, it can eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are making you feel insecure or uncomfortable with your body. 

 

With the availability of new techniques and qualified surgeons, liposuction in Orlando is safer and easier than ever. The benefits of the procedure are achievable immediately following surgery, and are permanent when supplemented with good health and exercise regimens. The lack of necessity for general anesthesia makes the procedure more accessible to people with heart problems, obesity complications, and other health concerns. To find out if liposuction is right for you, contact your plastic surgeon today.

 

What is Endermologie?

Dr Richard Arabitg - Thursday, February 26, 2015

These days, losing weight and gaining a more youthful appearance is becoming easier to achieve. With a wide variety of diets, exercise methods, and even cosmetic surgery in Orlando, weight loss is more achievable than ever. However, diets and exercise may not always yield the fast and dramatic results that cosmetic surgery can create, and cosmetic surgery can result in high risks and painful side effects. People are always searching for a new way to reduce bulk and cellulite, without the hassle of diets and the risks of invasive surgeries. Cellulite, especially, is very stubborn and hard to get rid of. Cellulite appears as unsightly dimpling of the skin, typically around the areas of the thighs and rear. It is sometimes referred to as a “cottage cheese” look, and can appear even in people who are physically fit or in shape. Cellulite is not just a problem for people who are heavier or have a higher body fat percentage. It is not specific to any skin type, either. Because the appearance of cellulite may not diminish with weight loss, and cannot be rectified with liposuction, many people seek out other options to eliminate it.

 

Endermologie, a non-invasive technique for the reduction of the appearance of cellulite, was developed by French plastic surgeons, and then later patented in the United States. Endermologie involves the use of rollers, which are similar to a deep tissue massage, across areas of the skin with cellulite. During this roller application, suction is applied, redistributing the skin to remove the characteristic dimples of cellulite. This results in a much smoother appearance of the skin, after anywhere from fourteen to twenty- eight, forty-five minute treatments. Monthly treatments afterwards may be needed for maintenance, although are not required. The procedure is most effective on patients between the ages of 30 and 45, who are physically fit. Other practices, such as drinking eight or more glasses of water before the procedure, and continuing to regularly drink healthy amounts of water daily, may also benefit the patient and yield greater results.

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.
