Fat Transfer Butt Lift in NYC – How It Works

Fat Transfer Butt Lift in NYCFat transfer butt lift offered in NYC plastic surgery practices is a great option for women to achieve more rounded and raised buttocks without implant-related risks and concerns. For the right candidate, the procedure offers a natural-looking, attractive outcome. This is a safe procedure which involves a few simple steps. In general, the procedure involves removal of the candidate’s own body fat from areas where she has it in excess through liposuction and transferring it to the butt to contour it.

If you are looking for a subtle enhancement and have enough fat to spare in areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, and thighs, you are a candidate for the fat transfer treatment.

Here are the step-wise details:

  • First of all, the donor site is prepared for fat removal using a local anesthetic.
  • Safe and effective modalities such as Smartlipo Triplex, BodyTite or VASERlipo are used for lipolysis.
  • The fat is removed using the chosen lipo technique that depends on your body anatomy, expectations and preferences.
  • The removed fat is then purified and processed.
  • The fat tissues are spun in the FDA-approved Adivive machine to improve their survival rate.
  • The surgeon then injects the fat into the buttocks at different depths and areas in order to provide the desired enhancement.
  • A good amount of fat in the order of several hundred CCs or even more per buttock is injected in most cases.
  • As not all of the fat survives, the surgeon will opt to probably overfill the buttocks with fat by a certain percentage.
  • In order to maximize the survival rate of the graft used, you should minimize the amount of pressure applied to the treatment area such as when sitting.

This minimally invasive solution for a shapely butt has become one of the most popularly requested cosmetic procedures around the world and in the US in particular. As your own fat is used, there is less chance of infection and allergic reaction and minimal chances of rejection by the body. This also improves the contour of the donor site by removing excess fat and offers a more natural-looking outcome.

CoolSculpting NYC – Non-invasive Body Contouring with Easy Recovery

CoolSculpting NYCCoolSculpting NYC is an ideal body contouring option for patients close to their ideal weight with stubborn deposits of fat. The highlight of the treatment is that it involves no surgery, needles, or cannulas, and comes with little to no downtime. This non-invasive technique uses controlled cooling to freeze and get rid of unwanted fat cells in problem areas that refuse to respond to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and underneath the chin.

This FDA-cleared fat reduction technology offers noticeable, lasting and natural looking results without the complications of an invasive surgery. Recovery is much easier compared with even minimally invasive liposuction:

  • As there are no cut and stitches involved in the treatment, there is hardly any downtime.
  • Without minimal surgical incisions or suction hoses, CoolSculpting keeps patients free from the potential side effects of invasive and minimally-invasive treatments.
  • As this non-invasive method is performed without administering any anesthesia, there are no related risks.
  • Unlike other fat reduction treatments, no pain medications are required as the treatment is virtually pain free.
  • As no incisions are made, the procedure avoids risks of surgery or harm to the surrounding tissues.
  • As the applicator freezes the targeted fat, patients may feel intense cold, and this subsides as the area becomes numb. Patients may also experience sensations of deep pulling, tugging, and pinching in the treatment area as the applicators typically use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup. As all these effects are temporary, there is little to no downtime.
  • Patients can stay awake and relax during the treatment. They are free to read, check email, or even take a nap.
  • Most patients return to normal activity and work quite easily after this non-surgical treatment.

The key to optimal outcomes and smooth treatment is in having the CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure performed by an experienced NYC plastic surgeon.

Kybella – An Innovative Treatment to Address a Double Chin

KybellaA double chin occurs due to weight gain, aging or genetic factors and is a major cosmetic concern for many men and women. Many people are hesitant to go under the knife to treat their double chin. Kybella treatment in a reliable NYC plastic surgery center is an great solution to the problem. An FDA approved injectable drug composed of deoxycholic acid, Kybella absorbs the excess fats on the chin. It can address a double chin safely and effectively and result in a well-defined neck and jaw line.

According to American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, a double chin is a concern that affects 68% of Americans. Minimally-invasive Kybella double chin treatment is proving to be an effective option for the growing number of people seeking treatment for the condition. When injected into the chin area, Kybella injections cause lysis or destroy the fat cell membrane. As a result, the cells breakdown and release their fatty contents. The treatment improves the contour of the neck and jawline and provides a more youthful facial appearance.

A single outpatient consultation may involve up to 50 Kybella shots. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes. Patients may be recommended up to six single treatments no less than a month apart. The number of injections administered would depend on the extent of submental fullness the patients has. The aim of the treatment is to remove the fat under the chin area and create a more attractive jawline.

When the procedure is performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon in New York City, you can expect the following benefits:

  • A well contoured look
  • Minimal downtime
  • No severe post-procedure side effects
  • No anesthesia or bandages
  • Faster recovery
  • Long-lasting results

Side effects, if any, are mild, and include some bruising, swelling, pain, numbness, and small, firm areas around the injection sites, but these resolve over time. Choosing an experienced surgeon is important. A reliable surgeon will explain the treatment to you, including the risks. Looking at before and after photos of patients who have had the Kybella treatment will give you an idea of the changes that the procedure can bring about, though results may vary depending on your individual considerations.

Americans Underwent the Maximum Number of Cosmetic Breast Surgery Procedures in 2015

Cosmetic Breast SurgeryAn attractive breast shape and size can do wonders to a women’s overall body contour. However, not all women have the desired breast contour and it is not something that can be achieved via exercise or other means. That is the reason why many women are heading for cosmetic breast surgery procedures to meet their aesthetic goals. Breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction are among the popular breast surgery treatments. According to an international survey on aesthetic/cosmetic procedures performed in 2015, a total of 2,790,138 cosmetic breast procedures were performed last year. And interestingly, Americans underwent the maximum number of cosmetic breast surgery procedures in 2015.

To be more specific, 546,260 breast procedures were performed that marked about 19.6% of the total breast procedures performed globally last year. This was followed by Brazil (358,655, 12.9%) and Mexico (110,624, 4.0%). Breast augmentation was the procedure most requested last year with a total of 1,488,992 procedures, marking 15.4% of the total procedures.

Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that enhances the size and contour of the breasts. Individuals can go for breast implant surgery, fat transfer or a combination of both. Those choosing the implant augmentation can make their choice from FDA-approved saline-filled implants, silicone gel filled implants, gummy bear implants or IDEAL implants. Women can benefit from the procedure to reshape breasts that have lost volume and firmness due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, breastfeeding, or other factors.

A breast lift or mastopexy resolves sagging and restores a firmer, perkier, and more pleasing shape to the breasts. The procedure safely addresses issues such as nipples pointing downward and nipple/areola located below the crease underneath the breast. The treatment removes excess, sagging skin, reshapes and tightens the breast tissue and raises the nipple and areola to a more forward position to offer better proportioned, natural-looking breasts.

When coming to breast reduction procedures, there are specialized procedures for women and men. Overly large breasts can affect a woman’s health, emotional well-being and lifestyle. Breast reduction reduces the size of one or both breasts and provides women with a well-shaped, attractive breast contour. Hormonal imbalances, use of certain drugs and some medical conditions sometimes cause abnormal enlargement of the male breast. Individualized gynecomastia surgery provided at accredited plastic surgery centers addresses this condition and helps men achieve a manly physique.

Choose the right breast surgeon in NYC, specialized in the particular procedure you want, to experience safe and optimal results. The surgeon would examine you in detail and take into account your body anatomy, expectations, goals and preferences so that a personalized treatment plan can be followed.

Is there an Ideal Age for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian Butt LiftThe latest reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicate Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) grew 28% during 2014-2015, and that a buttock procedure was performed on average every 30 minutes of every day. With more and more celebrities posting photos of their bodies with attractive, curvy derrieres, even young girls want to get BBL. Plastic surgeons in New York City report that they have received queries about the right age for this buttock augmentation procedure which uses the patient’s own fat for the enhancement. One young woman wanted to know if 18 years old is too young for a BBL.

Once exclusive to older women, cosmetic surgery is a newer, fashionable option among teenagers. As with all surgical procedures, appropriate informed consent is required and 18 years is legally the age of consent. However, patients will differ widely in their expectations and understanding of what an elective surgery like BBL involves. Specialists caution that even if you have turned 18 and are considering the treatment, you should fully understand the BBL procedure, possible complications and the realistic results they can expect. In this context, two points should be noted:

  • Puberty ends at different ages for different people and physiologically, your body may continue to change even after 18 years of age. This can impact the results
  • Your feelings about your body image may also change over time

The procedure involves removing fat from specific areas through liposuction and injecting it into the buttocks. So whether you are a good candidate for the treatment would also depend on how much of fat you have to spare. A good amount of fat would have to be injected to achieve the desired outcome as not all of the fat cells will survive.

The best way to learn about these matters and to get satisfactory answers to your questions is to schedule a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. Leading plastic surgery practices in NYC offer the Brazilian butt augmentation and if you do your research well, you can find a reliable expert.
