There are two types of breast implants that our medical specialists use for breast augmentation procedures. Silicone-based implants and those that are filled with a sterile saline preparation are your best bet. These implants come in various shapes and sizes depending on your desired results. Saline implants call for a small incision in order to place them next to breast tissue, while silicone ones require a bigger cut. Nevertheless, the incisions made after the surgery won’t be visible so you don’t have to worry about scarring or keloid formation. Silicone implants offer a more natural feel compared to saline prep, as the latter may cause surface rippling since it’s less dense than silicone

IS BREAST AUGMENTATION PAINFUL?

Depending on the incision site, your level of pain tolerance, application of anesthetic, and placement of the implants, pain can range from just a scratch to something more. It is normal to feel exhausted and in a little bit of pain several days following the surgery, the breasts may feel sensitive or sore to touch and can appear swollen for up to a month. Expect a feeling of tightness in the chest, as the skin compensates for the new size of the breasts. Swelling may also be observed under the arms and abdomen but this is normal. For most people who don’t have clotting problems, the bruising and swelling will subside within two weeks at most.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE OPERATION?

After the surgery, you may feel groggy as the effects of the general anesthetic wear off. You will then be wheeled to a recovery room and a compression bandage will be placed on your chest for four to six hours following the procedure. It is encouraged that you go with a friend or a responsible family member. You can go home after the effects of the sedative completely wear off and your vital signs are stable. In the next few days, your body systems will feel a little bit off so you’ll be given a medication pack that contains painkiller, antibiotics to combat infection, and tablets for constipation.

HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD AFTER BREAST SURGERY?

It all depends on the body’s ability to heal and recover in the shortest period of time.

WHEN CAN I RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES?

You can continue with your daily, non-strenuous routine five days after your operation. You may need a little help reaching out for things, carrying weight, and cooking. Make sure that you can easily do things around your house before you undergo the procedure, especially if you live alone. The first two weeks following surgery is considered recuperating time for you, so no exertion must be done to speed up the healing process of your operative site. Hire a nanny or ask someone to look after young children if you have them for the next two weeks. Upper body workouts are discouraged temporarily, but you can still do brisk walking as your afternoon or morning constitutional. Have someone to drive you around in a car for the next two weeks, especially if you go to places that are hours away from your home.

WILL THE FEELING IN MY BREAST OR NIPPLE CHANGE?

You may observe a diminished sensation around the nipples or breasts following surgery, don’t worry because the nerves and blood vessels are recuperating at this time; just like you. Shooting pains or occasional tingling sensation may also be felt from time to time especially on the chest and under-arm areas but this should not persist and get worse. There are patients who report a feeling of having sunburnt skin after the surgery. This manifestation is normal since your skin is trying to cope up with the increased size. It is a good idea to use some moisturizing lotion, preferably one that is rich in vitamin E to maintain the elasticity of your skin and keep tell-tale sagging away.

There are certain factors to consider such as the incision site, and your ability to recover in a short period of time before you can get a clean bill to resume breastfeeding. Plus you’ll be taking medications that may get excreted in breast milk.

WILL THE IMPLANTS DROP?

During the first few days after the surgery, the breasts may appear red and unnaturally raised than usual. This shouldn’t bother you because your body will gradually adjust to the new implants. These will drop after a week, giving you a more natural feel on your breasts. You will be prescribed with a special type of brassiere that facilitates descent of the implants.

DO IMPLANTS NEED TO BE REPLACED REGULARLY?

Implants can last up to 20 years or so. It’s not permanent, and after some point, it needs to be replaced.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY IMPLANTS HAVE RUPTURED?

The reason why silicone-based implants are preferred by most clients and prescribed by surgeons is because if it ruptures inside your body, a cohesive gel layer forms in order to prevent leakage of the silicone into your body. Only an ultrasound can detect implant rupture, so regular checkups are encouraged.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF I GET CAPSULE CONTRACTURE?

Capsular contracture results when the scar tissue that forms after the surgery tighten or thicken which can compress the implant. You can experience mild discomfort, displacement of the implant, firmness of the operative site, and pain due to capsular contracture. If this happens, seek professional help immediately because additional breast surgery may be needed.

An individual that is in good shape and of normal body weight, but who has stubborn areas that refuse to go away with exercise and diet, such as ‘saddlebags’ on women or ‘love handles’ on men, make the best candidates for liposuction.

HOW EFFECTIVE IS LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuction is a very effective method for extracting fat deposits from most of the areas of the body. But when you put on weight after liposuction, the new fatty bulges develop in a different part of the body.
After the fat has been extracted, the skin surrounding the area might be loose and sagging and takes about two months for it to tighten. Tightening of the skin depends on the elasticity of the skin of the patient.
Younger skin retracts faster as it has good elasticity compared to older skin.

ARE THE RESULTS OF LIPOSUCTION PERMANENT?

If you maintain a sensible diet and exercise routine and do not gain weight overall, the results of liposuction surgery should be permanent. Liposuction is a body sculpting technique, not for general weight loss. While the results of liposuction can permanently reduce the number of fat cells in trouble areas, if you gain weight again, the cells can expand and regenerate.

IS LIPOSUCTION AN EFFECTIVE WEIGHT LOSS TECHNIQUE?

No. Liposuction is a body sculpting tool and is not appropriate for large-scale weight loss. It is specifically designed to remove pockets of fat that are diet and exercise resistant, thus bringing the body into more pleasing proportions. A liposuction is an ineffective tool, however, for general weight loss.

CAN CELLULITE BE TREATED WITH LIPOSUCTION?

The procedure is not deliberately used to treat cellulite, however, liposuction has been known to even out some quantity of cellulite.

WILL I NEED TO WEAR A GIRDLE WHILE I RECOVER?

Some form of compression garment, similar to a girdle, is typically required to be worn by a patient for up to 4-6 weeks. The garment is used to help lower the danger of hematomas and fluid collection, as well as decrease swelling and to support the area that was treated.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER LIPOSUCTION?

Recovery time is different depending on each patient. Typically, returning back to work after one or two weeks is the norm for most patients. Strenuous activities, though, should be delayed for two to four weeks.
A little improvement can be seen as soon as the procedure is completed. It takes several weeks to months before the total effects are noticeable after several months.

WHAT REGIONS OF THE BODY CAN I HAVE LIPOSUCTION?

Many areas of the face and body can receive liposuction. The common areas are the cheeks, chin, neck, upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.

WHAT TYPE OF ANESTHESIA IS USED?

General anesthesia, local anesthesia, or an epidural may be used when performing liposuction.

WHAT IS TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION?

The Tumescent liposuction procedure uses a large amount of fluid that holds saline and lidocaine. The fluid is then inserted into the fatty tissues prior to the fat being suctioned out causing them to swell and turn firm or ‘tumesced’. A local anesthesia is usually required. The outcome of the method has the following benefits: more defined results, less recovery time, reduced post-operative swelling and bruising.
The tumescent liposuction can be longer than the general liposuction procedure. as much as four to five hours long to complete.

IF I GAIN WEIGHT AFTER LIPOSUCTION, WILL IT HINDER MY RESULTS?

Yes, gaining weight can cause the fat that was once removed to come back again. If you foresee yourself gaining a great deal of weight (such as a pregnancy) then you should seriously reconsider liposuction and reschedule for a later date.

HOW PAINFUL IS LIPOSUCTION?

Patients may experience a different amount or extent of pain; however, the majority of individuals find liposuction find discomfort more than hurting. Your doctor can prescribe a pain medicine that can help reduce any uneasiness that you may have. Keep in mind that the most recent methods (UAL and tumescent) have the benefit of less pain.

WHAT ARE THE COMMON SIDE EFFECTS TO BE AWARE OF?

There might be temporary swelling, soreness, bruising and numbness around the treated area of the body.
Irritation and scarring are present around the incision areas.
The sagging skin might be seen as it takes few months for the skin to retract.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE LOOSE SKIN AFTER LIPOSUCTION?

In most cases, the skin has enough elasticity or “spring” to tighten after liposuction. As we age, our skin continually loses its elasticity. An excellent analogy is going from spandex which is very elastic to linen with no elasticity at all. In those with borderline skin elasticity, judicial and conservative liposuction is extremely important in avoiding issues with loose skin after surgery. In those with minimal skin elasticity, the more fat is removed from the area, the more loose skin results. Liposuction can be effective in those with poor skin elasticity. Those with poor skin elasticity simply have to accept minor skin excess post-operatively. Other surgical procedures may be necessary for conjunction with liposuction to effectively address the loose skin.

HOW WILL PREGNANCY AFFECT MY LIPOSUCTION RESULTS?

Not all women gain extreme amounts of fat during pregnancy. Regardless, the physical changes of pregnancy don’t necessary negate the effects of liposuction. In fact, if you have had liposuction of troubling areas on your body, you will not gain as much fat at the liposuctioned areas during pregnancy. If you are going to be pregnant in the next 6 months, it is usually recommended holding off on liposuction until your body has returned to its normal state after your delivery and nursing.

WHAT IS BLEPHAROPLASTY?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat, skin and atrophied or loose muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.

HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED?

During blepharoplasty, incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelids or on the inside of the eyelids. The surgeon removes some of the herniated fat and excess skin and then closes the incision with very fine sutures.

IS THERE MUCH SCARRING WITH A BLEPHAROPLASTY?

As with any surgical procedure, some scarring is to be expected. However, scarring with blepharoplasty is minimal and practically non-existent after several months of healing.

AT WHAT AGE CAN BLEPHAROPLASTY BE PERFORMED?

Fat and loose skin around the eyes usually appears with age, but some young people are genetically prone to it, so there really is no set age when blepharoplasty is performed.

WILL A BLEPHAROPLASTY GET RID OF MY EYE WRINKLES?

No. A blepharoplasty is not designed to remove the wrinkles at the outer corners of your eyes (crow's feet) or to fix sagging brows. There are other procedures available that can be used to remove wrinkles near the eyes, including laser resurfacing and intense pulsed light treatments.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT POSTOPERATIVELY?

After your surgery, your eyes will be tender, swollen, and sore, and you will probably have some bruising. These should all resolve in a few days. Discomfort can usually be controlled with pain medications prescribed by your surgeon. You may experience blurry vision for the first few days after your procedure, and your eyes may be watery or very dry.

WHEN WILL MY STITCHES BE TAKEN OUT?

Stitches are normally removed three to five days after your surgery. The removal process may sting a little, but is usually not too uncomfortable.

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE THE RESULTS?

You should be able to see a definite difference once the swelling goes down, but this won't be for several days.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF BLEPHAROPLASTY?

Blepharoplasty, like all surgery, has risks. Minor complications associated with blepharoplasty include temporary double or blurry vision, temporary swelling, and tiny white pimples around your eyes. Your eyes may also heal at different rates, which can mean that they will be temporarily asymmetrical. More serious risks include permanent asymmetry or difficulty closing your eyes and keeping them closed.

This ethnic plastic surgery is one of the most requested procedures among Asians in the United States and abroad.

WHAT CAN CAUSE GYNECOMASTIA?

Gynecomastia can be caused by drugs, steroids or marijuana as well as other factors. These should be discontinued prior to surgery to minimize recurrence.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR MALE BREAST REDUCTION?

The most important question you should ask yourself is: does the condition bother you both psychologically and physically? If the answer is positive, you should consider surgery and start to gather information that will help you make an intelligent decision while consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is experienced in this type of surgery, obtaining information from web sites and referrals.

AM I TOO YOUNG TO HAVE GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY?

In general, we recommend you wait until the age of 18 years. There are some circumstances where a person should consider it earlier. For this, you will have to consult a Plastic Surgeon.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

You should discuss this with your surgeon prior to the surgery, and make sure you fully understand everything that is involved while keeping your expectations realistic. Your experienced surgeon can help you with this.

WHAT KIND OF SCAR SHOULD I EXPECT?

Usually periareolar (about 1-inch scar in the lower part of the areola) that is generally inconspicuous. Sometimes, tiny scars remain in the armpit or chest after liposuction. Some people need more extensive procedures, and this should be discussed with your surgeon in detail prior to surgery.

WILL I HAVE PAIN THAT WILL REQUIRE MEDICATION?

Usually, pain is minimal, but since we want to make sure you will be comfortable, we do provide you with a prescription for pain medication.

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I TAKE OFF FROM WORK OR SCHOOL?

This depends on the type of work you do and the extent of the surgical procedure. Usually, it's between 3 and 10 days, but healing time varies for each individual and should be discussed with your surgeon.

You should stop medications such as blood thinner, aspirin, Advil, Vitamin E and herbal remedies such as St. John's Wort and Ginkgo Biloba. Arrive on the day of surgery in comfortable clothing that is not tight or confining. Have a responsible person accompany you to and from the doctor's office.

WHAT TYPE OF DRESSING WILL I HAVE?

A surgical vest is sometimes required after the procedure.

WILL I HAVE A DRAIN?

Usually not, but in cases of excessive bleeding, a drain will be necessary. This will be removed in a few days post-operative

WHAT IS ABDOMINOPLASTY?

Abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck or TT) is a surgery to remove the excess skin and fat in the abdomen that may accumulate after pregnancy, obesity, or age. In a full abdominoplasty, abdominal muscles that may have become stretched out or lax over time are tightened. An abdominoplasty is not a simple procedure and you must be aware of the risks and postoperative care and recovery time that will be needed.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ABDOMINOPLASTY?

First and foremost, you must be in good health and not have any active diseases or serious pre-existing medical conditions. You also must have realistic expectations of the outcome of your surgery. Discuss your goals with your abdominoplasty surgeon so that you have an understanding of what can realistically be achieved with tummy tuck surgery.
You must be mentally and emotionally stable. An abdominoplasty requires patience and stability to get through.
If you are a woman, you probably should wait until you are finished having children before having a tummy tuck, since the skin and muscles can get stretched out again. If you are considering losing weight, you should wait after you've reached your desired weight. You may need additional surgery to remove the excess skin if you lose more weight, which would mean that the money spent on your abdominoplasty would be wasted.

AT WHAT AGE IS ABDOMINOPLASTY USUALLY PERFORMED?

There is no "normal" age or time in one's life to have an abdominoplasty, but it is most often done after a woman has given birth and does not plan to have more children, or after someone has lost all the weight he or she intends to lose.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL ABDOMINOPLASTY CONSULTATION ENTAIL?

An abdominoplasty consultation involves talking with the surgeon and telling him or her what you want to achieve through tummy tuck surgery. The surgeon will also examine you. You can show photos of yourself when you had a flatter abdomen and the two of you can discuss what is and isn't possible with an abdominoplasty. You also have a chance to look at before-and-after photos of other tummy tuck patients of that plastic surgeon.

HOW IS A TUMMY TUCK SURGERY PERFORMED?

A full tummy tuck is usually performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes an incision across the lower abdomen just above your pubic bone and pubic hair. This incision may go from hip to hip, but it is usually placed so that it will be hidden by a bikini bottom. Then, skin and fat are separated from the abdominal muscles up to the bottom of the rib cage. An incision is made around the belly button to loosen the skin and detach it from the belly button. Most frequently, excess skin and fat below the belly button are removed.
In a full abdominoplasty, the fascia and rectus abdominous muscles are tightened by folding the fascia along the centerline of the abdomen. This tightens the muscles and abdominal wall. The skin above the belly button is pulled down toward the pubis and sutured into position as the incision is closed. A new hole is made in the skin to suture around the belly button.
Usually, one or two drains are placed under the skin under the incision to allow fluids to drain from the site for a few days. These drains are usually placed through small incisions above your pubic bone. The drains are plastic tubes that end in plastic bulbs that look sort of like grenades. The bulbs are emptied regularly and are squeezed before they are reattached to the tubes so that there is a bit of negative pressure that helps with the drainage of fluid.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES FOR ABDOMINOPLASTY?

There are several different techniques for abdominoplasty, most of which differ in the amount of tissue that is removed and the shape and placement of the incision. Most abdominoplasty surgeons try to place incisions in the most inconspicuous area whenever they can, but sometimes this is not possible. Discuss this with your surgeon beforehand. Some surgeons go completely horizontal and straight across with their incisions, some use a V shape, and others follow along with the bikini line. In my opinion, an incision following the bikini line is the best since the scar can be easily concealed, but your body's needs will determine the incision placement for you.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT POSTOPERATIVELY?

You are usually able to walk after abdominoplasty surgery and you will be encouraged to do so. You should take a short walk three or four times a day for a few minutes each time. You will most likely not be able to stand completely straight and you may be a bit hunched over for several days. The skin of your abdomen may feel tight. You may be instructed to remain bent over a bit for the first 4 to 5 days after surgery. This posture might cause some back spasms and discomfort, so ask your surgeon about muscle relaxants.
If drains have been inserted, they are usually removed 4 days to 2 weeks after tummy tuck surgery. You should take it easy for at least 2 weeks after surgery. Take it easy, but walk a bit every few hours every day. You will be told to wear an abdominal pressure garment for several weeks after your surgery to hold everything in place while you heal. This is a girdle or a band that fits around your abdomen and holds everything in place during healing.
Some swelling and bruising are normal, but the amount varies from person to person. Recovery from tummy tuck surgery may vary depending on the person and the surgery type.

IS THERE MUCH PAIN ASSOCIATED WITH ABDOMINOPLASTY?

The amount of pain with an abdominoplasty is quite variable. Some people report a moderate amount of discomfort and some say it is more intense. But there will be some pain. Your surgeon can give you a prescription for pain relievers.

WHERE ARE THE SCARS LOCATED IN AN ABDOMINOPLASTY?

This is not a scar-free surgery. In fact, scars may be quite severe depending on the amount of skin needed to be removed, your body's ability to heal, whether you scar well, the skill of your surgeon, and the technique used. Most surgeons try to use techniques that leave a scar that can be covered by a standard bikini. Be sure to discuss the tummy tuck incision types, techniques, and placements with your surgeon at your consultation. Ideally, having no scar would be wonderful, but that isn't possible – yet.

IS THERE A LOT OF SWELLING INVOLVED WITH AN ABDOMINOPLASTY?

Yes, there will be some swelling after tummy tuck. Abdominoplasty is serious surgery and, depending upon the case, a lot of tissue is removed, so some swelling is inevitable. Swelling should subside within in a few weeks.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO WORK?

Abdominoplasty takes a long time to heal completely. While the drains are in, you should rest in bed or on a couch, but get up to walk frequently. You may be told to wear a compression garment, usually a girdle or a wide band of elastic material. You may be instructed to wear this for 3 to 6 weeks. Many patients can return to work after 2 weeks after tummy tuck surgery, but this depends on how extensive your surgery is and what you do for a living. In some cases, you may need to be off work 4 or more weeks.

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE THE RESULTS?

You will start to see a difference after the swelling subsides and the drains are taken out. A full abdominoplasty is considered a very invasive procedure. Give your body time to heal and you will reap the many benefits of the procedure.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF ABDOMINOPLASTY?

An abdominoplasty is a serious surgery and you must understand there are some serious risks. As with any surgery with anesthesia, there are risks that primarily due to the anesthetic.
Because skin, fat, and other tissue are being loosened and rearranged, they may be inadvertently detached from their blood supply. This can cause tissue death, which is also called necrosis. If a small amount of fat becomes necrotic, it tends to turn into orangey-clear liquid and may drain from the incision. To some extent, this is normal.
But if other tissue becomes necrotic, or you have a larger amount of fat die, that's a different story. Necrotic tissue must be removed before a major infection develops, possibly leading to gangrene. This amount of necrosis rarely happens, but you should take precautions against it anyway. Not smoking and proper wound care make a big difference.
Sometimes liposuction is done as part of the abdominoplasty. Liposuction carries its own set of risks, which you can learn about here. There may be asymmetry, hyperpigmentation (permanent dark spots) from the bruising. Major blood loss is a factor is some cases with liposuction, as is a hematoma (pocket of blood) and infection. Just remember, abdominoplasty or liposuction are not a way to lose weight.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF A TUMMY TUCK LAST?

The results can last for many, many years. If you have no large weight gain or pregnancies after your tummy tuck, then the changes will be relatively permanent. There will be some relaxation of the tissues with age, but not to the extent prior to surgery.

HOW DOES HAIR TRANSPLANTATION WORK?

Hair transplantation is really about relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head.
This process works for a lifetime because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated to.

WILL MY HAIR TRANSPLANT RESULTS LOOK COMPLETELY NATURAL?

Hair transplantation, when done right, can be so natural that even your hair stylist will not know that you've had it done.
But the skill and techniques of hair transplant surgeons does vary widely, as do their results. It's important to choose the right procedure and clinic to assure that you will get completely natural results.
The state of art hair transplantation procedure that we recommend is called "Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation".

HOW LONG DOES A HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE TAKE?

A typical session of between 1,500 to 3,000 grafts normally involves a full day of surgery on an out patient basis. Most patients will arrive in the morning and will have their procedure completed by late afternoon.

DOES THE HAIR TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE HURT?

Patients are given local anesthesia in the donor and recipient areas. Most patients find that once the anesthesia is given that they feel no pain or discomfort during the surgery. Following surgery patients will typically feel some amount of soreness and numbness, with some mild discomfort. Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how minimal the discomfort from the surgical procedure is.

HOW MANY GRAFTS/HAIRS WILL I NEED?

A number of grafts you will need ultimately depends on your degree of hair loss, now and in the future, and on how full you desire your hair to be.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY/HEALING TIME?

With today’s very refined micro hair transplantation procedure the incisions are very small and less invasive than past procedures. This results in more rapid healing. Most patients feel fine within a day or two following surgery, although some numbness and mild soreness can be expected for several days following surgery.

WILL PEOPLE KNOW I HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANT?

Immediately following surgery a patient’s recipient area is typically pink with scabs forming around the micro incisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.
During the first few days after the surgery a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair to mask these temporary scabs. However, most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following surgery.
Once the transplanted hair grows out the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.

WHEN WILL MY NEWLY TRANSPLANTED HAIR START TO GROW?

Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows in very thin initially and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After one year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a life time.

ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?

Since the hair follicles that are transplanted to the balding areas are genetically resistant to going bald, they will continue to grow for a life time – just as if they had been left in the bald resistant donor area.
