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.

Dr. Arabitg is a Trained Medical Expert in BOTOX Cosmetic

Dr Richard Arabitg - Wednesday, February 11, 2015

BOTOX Cosmetic treatments allow you to continue to show expression after being administered, when performed correctly. Dr. Arabitg is a licensed, trained medical expert and is very careful with the treatments. BOTOX Cosmetic treatments are not painful—most patients express the injection feels like a pinch at most. There are options to numb the injection area if you are concerned about any discomfort you may experience.


Once the BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is administered, results can be seen as quickly as 24 to 48 hours, but may take up to 30 days to see the maximum effect. BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can be used on both men and women. It is important to remember that BOTOX Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment for frown lines and crow’s feet. These wrinkles will gradually reappear and look just like they did before the treatment. If you wish to continue treatment, we recommend you schedule an appointment with Dr. Arabitg to plan your course of treatment.

Your Cosmetic Surgeon should make You Feel Comfortable and Safe!

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, September 23, 2014

It is crucial to be weary of Orlando cosmetic surgeons who push for multiple surgeries, because this increases both their payout and the safety risk. The right surgeon will suggest multiple surgeries only if it is necessary or important for achieving your desired final look. They will not push you to undergo many surgeries, whether they claim that the surgeries are necessary or not. A cosmetic surgeon’s first priority should be making their patient feel comfortable and safe. If disciplinary action has ever been taken out against a surgeon, strongly consider looking into the issue before allowing them to perform surgery on you. Although newer or younger plastic surgeons may not have had as many years of experience as older surgeons, this is not indicative of the quality of procedures they offer. Ask people in your area who have worked with a plastic surgeon how they felt about the experience. The best measure of a cosmetic surgeon’s work is their customer satisfaction level. Choosing a surgeon who is reliable, experienced, friendly, comforting, and knowledgeable should be the first priority of anyone pursuing cosmetic surgery. Although there can be great risks involved with surgical procedures, the chance of these risks occurring is greatly diminished when the surgery is performed by the right person. Following the recommended steps for finding a surgeon can ensure that your cosmetic surgery experience is rewarding, safe, and provides you with results that far surpass your satisfaction. Although the process of choosing a good surgeon can be long and arduous, it is well worth the work. 

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.
