Is there any downtime associated with liposuction?

If you need to get rid of stubborn fat in a few areas and reshape your body, liposuction is a great option. Liposuction is ideal for men and women near their ideal weight, with pockets of fat that won’t budge despite their efforts at eating healthy and getting regular exercise. But is there any downtime associated with liposuction.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is done to get rid of unwanted fat in areas such as the tummy, arms, thighs, hips, and back. It is able toreduce the number of fat cells in the targeted area. The procedure is normally done under general anesthesia, and involves the use of a small tube called a cannula, which breaks up the fat deposits. The fat is then removed via a suction attached to the cannula.

Is there any downtime with liposuction?
Yes, you can certainly expect to experience some downtime after your liposuction surgery. There is usually some bruising, pain, and swelling, especially for the first few days. Patients are given pain medication to ease the discomfort, and are fitted with a compression garment to help minimize swelling.However, the swelling can take several months to resolve. The compression garment is worn for 7-10 days.

Most patients need about one week off work, but this may vary based on the extent of the liposuction. More time off may be necessary if you are planning to have multiple areas treated.

Liposuction must always be performed by a capable, qualified board certified plastic surgeon, in order to minimize risks.

How does Vibradermabrasion work to rejuvenate skin?

Vibradermabrasion is an excellent way to restore radiant, youthful-looking skin.  It is similar to traditional microdermabrasion, but it uses newer technology that produces more effective results.  It significantly improves both the tone and texture of the skin, but how does Vibradermabrasion work to rejuvenate the skin.

Vibradermabrasion is an advanced microdermabrasion method that exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin using fine abrasive stainless steel paddles. The Vibraderm tool can be used on the face, neck, and décolletage. It has a large spot size, and this makes the treatment faster, and contributes to more consistent results than conventional microdermabrasion methods.

Vibraderm smooths the skin, and also enhances the penetration of topical skin care products. It can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve acne scars, age spots, and other signs of sun damage.

How it works to rejuvenate the skin
The stainless steel Vibraderm paddle is gently moved across the face and neck, massaging the skin as it goes. It also exfoliates the epidermis or outer layer of the skin.

Vibraderm rejuvenates the skin by getting rid of dead skin, and stimulating collagen production. It also contributes to the formation of new skin cells. These all help to revitalize the skin, so that it looks fresher and younger.

Vibradermabrasion is a comfortable treatement that is often performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.

If you would like to fix your dull skin and help it stay healthier for longer, Vibradermabrasion may be the right treatment for you.

Fillers vs. Implants: Which is best for cheek augmentation?

Loss of facial volume, especially in the cheek area, is a common result of aging, but there are several methods that can be used to add back volume to the cheeks. Two of the more popular options are injectable fillers and facial implants. But how do you decide between fillers vs implants, and which is best for cheek augmentation.

Injectable Fillers
Hyaluronic acid based fillers are typically used for cheek augmentation. Fillers are a  safe alternative that produce natural looking results.The fillers are injected into the cheeks using a very tiny needle. There is very little downtime, and few side-effects.

Facial Implants
Cheek augmentation with implants is typically done using  silicone implants, which are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The implants are usually inserted via incisions made in the mouth.

Which is best for cheek augmentation?
The decision to go with fillers vs implants for cheek augmentation is a matter that should be discussed with your plastic surgeon. The surgeon will review the pros and cons of both options, and help you decide which option is best, based on your aesthetic goals.

However, in reviewing the options, be sure to consider the following:

  • The results achieved with implants are permanent, but injectables provide temporary results that typically last 9-12 months.
  • Recovery after implants can take 7-10 days because of the swelling, but recovery with injectable fillers is usually quite short.
  • There are potential complications associated with the use of implants for cheek augmentation.

If you would like to re-volumize your cheeks, but you’re not sure whether to go with fillers or implants, contact, Correa Plastic Surgery, The Woodlands, TX, for more information.
