Plastic Surgery Procedures: Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, etc.

    • To lift thy thighs Monday October 23, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Thigh lift is a cosmetic enhancement procedure performed to remove excess, sagging skin and fat in the thigh area, to include portions of the buttock area.  

      To improve the thigh's overall appearance, liposuction is often performed along with the thigh lift.  Individuals who complain of excessive skin after a significant weight loss often seek thigh lift to tauten the affected area.        

      The procedure, which can last up to four hours, consists of incisions made on the upper and inner region of the thigh -- hidden in the groin crease, where excess fat and skin is removed.  The incisions can extend from the groin around the back.  However, plastic surgeons have devised newer procedures for inner thigh lifts.

    • Pushing for belly button plastic surgery Friday October 20, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      As a tethering point in the moving belly, navel attracts attention. The navel or belly button can be the focal point of the abdomen.  The beauty of one's navel is a matter of shape, depth and protrusion.  

      The exposed belly button concerns many especially if bikini bathing suits are a required wear. Also, summer clothing fashions, such as bare midriff, can reveal and expose.  Meanwhile, fashion and jewelry can emphasize the belly button – such is the advent of navel piercing (but that’s another story).
          
      “Ugly” belly button is not only a woman’s concern.  The male belly button can be exposed in certain sports, exercising, and recreational activities. For the aesthetic conscious, a distorted belly button can detract from a well-sculpted body.

    • Yes, they do that (and you will like): Fat Injection Tuesday October 17, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Bet we don’t know that body fat makes excellent soft tissue filler material.  Else, we really have no idea how can an unwanted fat be this useful.    

      Fat Injection procedure is known to diminish frown lines, crow's feet and smile lines (nasolabial folds).  It also provides definition to areas like the cheeks and chin and can be used to fill out depressed scarred areas on any part of the body.
       
      The procedure is natural and generally non-allergenic.  And because fat is from the patient’s own body, no pre-testing is required and the fat cannot be rejected

    • What gives? -- The Post Cosmetic Surgery Depression Monday October 16, 2006 | Posted in:

      When, during the first few days after surgery, you begin to question if you ever should have had the plastic surgery in the first place -- to the point of being self-apologetic.  Or you begin to think you are 'ugly', still, and that the bruising and swelling will never go away.

      Fret and all, these are the times when you and cosmetic surgery patients all over experience fits of depression, marked sadness or anxiety in the recovery period.

      Many cosmetic surgery patients go through post-surgery depression, and the experts are saying that, in fact, this rather gloomy emotional condition is quite normal.  For one, revision surgery patients -- especially after their primary surgery turned out to be not as they thought it would be, feel miserable.  A person who just had liposuction may find herself bigger than she were pre-operatively.

    • When freckles get in the way Friday October 13, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      As a child we may have been told that freckles are angel kisses when in fact those little brown spots are merely patches or an unusually heavy deposit of the dark pigment called melanin -- the very component that actually protects our skin from the sun's damage by reflecting and absorbing ultraviolet (UV) rays.
       
      Freckles are flat, circular spots that develop randomly on the skin, especially after repeated exposure to sunlight and particularly in persons of fair complexion.  Regardless of skin color, it is the uneven distribution of the melanin pigment in the skin that results in freckling.  They are usually very small dots and are always darker than the skin around them varying from red, tan, light-brown, brown, or black.     

    • Options for Breast Asymmetry Surgery Thursday October 12, 2006 | Posted in: Plastic Surgery Procedures

      Breast asymmetry is often not discussed despite it being a relatively common condition suffered by many women.  The topic is balked at that many are unaware there are surgeries that can correct the problem.  
       
      A recent study presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2006 conference in San Francisco noted that the embarrassment of having uneven breasts has affected the daily lives, sexuality and confidence of many women.  To some affected women it can be emotionally devastating.  

      All women have some degree of breast asymmetry.  The condition is labeled as ‘unpleasant’ when a woman's breasts noticeably differ in size or shape.  Breasts differing in even less than a half-cup size can be very obvious.
