Does the skin get loose after liposuction?

Image
  It is one of the most frequently asked questions regarding liposuction. Many people planning to undergo a liposuction procedure ask a plastic surgeon this question.     As you are aware liposuction is a cosmetic procedure through which a plastic surgeon removes deposits of fat from a particular part of the body.     As far as the question is concerned, skin loosens after liposuction surgery. Why is that? It is because space appears between muscular coat and skin.     However, the good thing is that you can prevent skin sagging by following post-surgery instructions.     The most effective ones include exercising, a balanced diet, and wearing a compression garment.     A compression garment helps and accelerates the healing process. Other than that, it plays an essential role in bridging that space between muscular coat and skin.     Usually, the doctor recommends wearing a compression garment for 3~6 months after the procedure. It is one of the most frequently asked questions regardi

  The UV rays and the aging process can take their toll on the skin tone and texture. As a result, you can notice freckles and pigmentation on the skin. Certainly, smooth and bright skin is something that anyone desires. Laser toning is one of a kind treatment that can make your skin look brighter and healthier. It causes the skin to improve dramatically without any discomfort or downtime.  Laser toning is a non-ablative treatment that significantly reduces unwanted pigments and freckles as well as brightens the overall facial skin tone.

Therefore, it may require several passes to reach the deep dermal layer.  Treating pigmentation and freckles is a relatively long-term process that requires multiple sessions.

How you prepare for tummy tuck

Image
    Undergoing any cosmetic procedure bears a risk. However, you can reduce the risks by taking a thorough approach in the preparation stage before the surgery.     During the first consultation, the plastic surgeon consults you by providing you with all the details of the surgery. Next, he or she will examine your medical history.     You must also need to let the doctor know about your medical history and lists of medications you are currently taking or have taken before.     One of the most crucial things before undergoing any surgeries is discussing the expectations. Make sure that you convey all your expectations to the doctor.     Most patients feel discomfort asking questions regarding the details of the surgery. However, there is nothing wrong with this because it is common and necessary to communicate your desired result and expectations.     Moreover, you must stop taking any blood-thinning medications. It is also necessary to stop smoking before the surgery. In addition, it

How to sculpt and improve the protruding abdomen?

  In this, I would like to cover a procedure that improves and flattens the abdomen. Most of you may have heard such a procedure as “tummy tuck.” It is also known as “abdominoplasty.”     A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen. Those who have excess fat or skin might opt for the tummy tuck for a flatter and toned abdomen.     There are a couple of reasons people undergo abdominoplasty. They include significant weight gain or weight loss, pregnancy, C-section delivery, etc.     Tummy tuck gets rid of excess, and loose skin tightens the connective tissue of the abdomen and can improve stretch marks in the lower abdomen. If you had a C-section delivery, then the plastic surgeon can make an incision on the C-section scar to minimize post-surgical scarring.     A tummy tuck can be done in conjunction with other body sculpting cosmetic procedures such as breast surgery and liposuction. It would be a good idea to have both tummy tuck and liposucti

How can I lose stubborn belly fat?

  Many women develop excess fat specifically in the upper and lower abdomen area, sides, and thighs. Many factors can affect this condition: excessive weight gain, childbirth, and genetics. It is widely known that abdominal fat is the most resistant area to exercise and diet, making people feel insecure about their appearances. The excess fat increases your waistline causing many concerns for patients. However, you can achieve great results in treating the abdominal fat and tummy aprons with surgical liposuction. This procedure will make you have a more hourglass profile. What’s more, this kind of operation doesn’t require general anesthetic, hospitalization, and scarring of the treatment area. Liposuction of the abdominal area is a safe and minimally invasive procedure. The operation takes anywhere from 2-3 hours, depending on the amount of fatty tissue that is needed to be removed. The incisions are only 5mm long and can be placed in the bikini line areas and belly button. The operat

Should I need to put sunscreen inside?

  It is already the last month of spring. It means that hot and sweltering summer is coming. During the season changes, we must pay even closer attention to skincare. Many people are well aware that they must regularly apply sunscreen to protect the skin from UV lights. However, few people know that they need to wear sunblock even when they stay indoors. During the corona pandemic, each of us constantly ventilates the rooms by opening and closing the windows. When we open the windows, UV lights enter the room.  Therefore, we have to put on sunblock despite being inside. Sunscreen is also a must when one works in a place with much lighting. It is because electric light also contributes to skin damage. Theoretically, it is desirable to reapply sunscreen every 4~5 hours. However, if your skin is more of an oily type, it is vital to choose a sunscreen with ample moisturizing components.   Otherwise, it may cause skin break-outs and acne due to the water-oil misbalance.   Lastly, it is cruc
