Plastic Surgery Procedures: Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, etc.

    • Cosmetic surgery of the feet Thursday January 18, 2007 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Feet are expected to tolerate extreme temperatures more often than any other part of the body but they are pampered less than any other part of the body.
      They are crammed into shoes that contort them into various positions and they are expected to hold us up comfortably no matter how much weight we put on.

      Over time feet can become painful, sometimes even distorted. Strange bumps can take over the foot and cause pain with every step.

      Feet are busy, and quite tolerant, and yet the majority people resent them for their appearance, conveniently tucking away and out of sight with socks and shoes and rarely do feet play an important role in overall appearance.

    • The 'rear' on the forefront: The trend on buttocks augmentation Monday January 8, 2007 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      With 'shake-your-bon-bons' and 'bootylicious' thing upon us, a body 'well put together' is one with shapely buttocks on it.  Popular celebrities are at it.  Cultural crossover suggests it.  The fashion trends dictate it.  

      "The rear is the new front," the media would hark.  Indeed, the fashion spotlight has been focused lately on buttocks.  Precisely because "How’s a shapely form without giving importance to the lower body curves?"  

      Autologous fat injection or the grafting of fat from one body part to add volume to another is one of the most reliable procedures now is being used to enhance gluteal contours.  Through liposuction, fat cells are removed from donor sites, which may be the abdomen, hips, back, or thighs.  The extracted fats are then injected in “layers” into the buttocks.  However, it's difficult to predict how much fats the body will reabsorb, hence, multiple procedures may be necessary.

    • Letting go of 'love handles' through 'Lipodissolve' Monday January 8, 2007 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Got 'love handles'? Sorry, but you cannot get away with that charming name. By any account, it is all but the rolls of fat showing through your shirt. Cosmetic surgery clinics are harping about a painless procedure that can bring back the smoother, firmer back and stomach of yore -- before "love" got in the way.

      The procedure is called 'lipodissolve'. It involves small injections of Phosphatidylcholine, which is the chief component of soy lecithin. One significant attribute of lecithin is its ability to break down fat.

      Through lipodissolve, bonds in fat cells are melted. Subsequently, the dissolved fat is liquefied and eliminated from the body in urine and feces. Injections of phosphatidylcholine are to be done in small distances apart and in small doses per treatment. The procedure has shown good results for minor to medium body sculpting of specific areas of the body like stomach area, upper arms, thighs, chin, hips, and so forth.

    • And then there is 'Micro' Liposuction Sunday January 7, 2007 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      If you think you look great already, push the envelope some more. Yes, people who are already in good shape but need to get rid of a small area of fat that is resistant to diet and exercise – "the bulges that just won't budge" – can opt for a liposuction technique especially made to treat smaller areas.

      Micro-liposuction, launched sometime in 2005, is one of the latest trends in cosmetic surgery. Members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) are recommending “micro-lipo” because it is less invasive and has a quicker recovery time than the traditional liposuction procedure.

    • Ban the bane that is "hairy" Friday December 22, 2006 | Posted in:

      We know of shaving, plucking and waxing techniques to remove hair.  These traditional methods provide only temporary relief.  And so the bane that is “hairy” remains.   

      What works best is electrolysis or Laser hair removal.  Hair removal is much faster with a laser as the laser is pulsed about once per second across the surface of the skin. The procedure works by targeting the pigment inside the hair follicle with very little damage to the delicate pores and structures of the skin.  

      The procedure starts by shaving the area to be treated. As the laser is activated, a small hand piece, or "wand" is placed against the skin and a burst of coolant is applied. The "wand" is repositioned and the laser is activated again. The number of laser "pulses" required will depend on the size or the area treated.   

    • Cutting-edge skin treatment: Clear Light Acne Therapy Friday December 22, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Cutting-edge treatments prove that lasers may just be the answer to flawless skin.  Yes, the pursuit of perfect skin has taken a dramatic turn.  Light has emerged as a hot commodity in high-tech skincare and makeup, invigorating lackluster complexions and masking facial imperfections.  Today, the laser treatments, called non-ablative resurfacing, incorporate light to solve common skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, sagging skin and hyper-pigmentation without the discomfort of injections and harsh chemicals.  

      For this technological breakthrough called Clear Light Acne Therapy, credit goes to a photobiologists who observed that sun exposure (especially during the summer months) diminishes acne.  He then sought to isolate harmful UVAa and UVB rays to come up with a blue light that stops acne-causing bacteria in their tracks.
