Lip Enhancement Surgery Using Implants

Lip augmentation with implants is a plastic surgery procedure that can provide long term results. Implants come in various quality, sizes, and shapes. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the best implant based on your aesthetic needs. You can make your lips appear shapelier and fuller with the help of implants.

Tiny incisions will be made by the plastic surgeon at mouth corners. This is done to carve a thin tunnel like pocket. The implant is threaded by the surgeon in this cavity and trimmed precisely as per your required shape and volume.

Enhancing Lips by Fat Transfer 

You can attain fuller lips through lip augmentation surgery using fat transfer. Your body’s own fat is used in this procedure to enhance volume in the lips. The end result in this procedure is more natural looking and achieved in a far less invasive manner.

There are several benefits to using your body’s fat tissue for enhancing the size of lips. For instance, risk of allergic reaction and rejection is reduced. Local anesthesia is not required in this procedure. It also allows for more natural looking results.

Lip Enhancement Using Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid based dermal injectables, such as Restylane and Juvederm provide fuller and shapelier lips. You should undergo this treatment option if you want fuller lips in a noninvasive manner. Dermal fillers for providing lips with symmetry and balance are FDA approved in most cases. People can add more definition to their lips using dermal filler injectables. It also helps in restoring a more natural and youthful appearance.

Laser Technique Lip Enhancement

Laser energy pulses are delivered precisely in lip enhancement using laser. The energy helps in forming new collagen when delivered within the mucosa of the lips.

You may need to undergo multiple laser sessions for achieving the desired level of enhancement.

Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery Procedure Steps

Tummy Tuck 

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a major cosmetic surgery involving few important steps. Many of these steps may be varied by your surgeon to better address your unique aesthetic needs. The steps depend on the type of surgical technique and the extent of correction required. Your surgeon will explain the procedure and accompanying steps in detail during the initial consultation.

You can reduce your pre-surgery anxiety by knowing what to expect during the abdominoplasty. This can also help you prepare better for the surgery. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides tummy tuck surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Placing the Incision

The first step in the tummy tuck procedure is to put the patient under anesthesia and make incisions in pre-planned discreet locations in the abdominal region. The number and length of incisions depends on the surgical technique chosen.

Partial abdominoplasty requires a tiny incision to be placed under the navel. Circumferential tummy tuck cosmetic surgery requires a major incision that extends all the way around the waist line.

Repositioning the Navel

Navel is usually involved in tummy tuck surgeries to make the lifted and tightened abdomen appear more natural. Your surgeon will reposition the navel from its original position to a more youthful location. The original navel, in most cases cannot be reattached. However, your surgeon will sculpt a new navel artificially. Experienced surgeons are recommended for performing this type of artistic plastic surgeries.

Abdominal Muscles will be Tightened

Due to excessive weight and aging, your underlying abdominal muscles may get separated or weak with time. This can cause the abdomen to sag. Your surgeon will make incisions to separate the abdominal walls from the skin. Weak muscles will be pulled closer together and stitched in place to create a toned appearance. Your waistline will appear narrower with abdominal muscle tightening.

Removing Loose Skin

The cosmetic surgeon will pull the abdominal skin downward once the tissue and muscles are tightened to make it taut and smooth. Any excess skin will be trimmed away then. Your surgeon may also recommend liposuction as a combination procedure for eliminating excessive fatty tissue before pulling the skin taut.

Stretch Marks Reduction or Removal

Removing or reducing stretch marks is not a core component of the tummy tuck surgery. However, many surgeons recommend reducing the stretch marks depending on where the incisions are placed. Stretch marks that are present right under the belly button may also be removed by removing loose skin. Sometimes, other stretch marks become less pronounced as well after getting a tummy tuck surgery.

Incision Closure

Your surgeon will suture your skin together using surgical stitches once the tummy tuck procedure is complete. This allows the wounds to heal and close in a natural way over time. Surgical drains may be inserted below the skin to drain any fluid collection. These are temporary tubes, which will be removed in one to two weeks.

What To Expect During Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery?

Tummy Tuck 

Tummy tuck surgery is of varying types and can take several hours. For instance, most tummy tucks take 2 to 5 hours whereas a partial abdominoplasty can be completed in just an hour. Your surgeon will try to minimize the scarring by planning the incision locations in advance. They will also try to minimize the visibility of your scars.

You can easily minimize the darkness and size of your scars by following your surgeon’s instructions closely. This will help in increasing the likelihood of a quick and smooth healing process. Incisions are made by a surgeon to tighten the abdominal muscles and remove excess skin for producing a firmer and flatter abdomen.

Discuss with your surgeon during your pre-op consultation about the kind of surgical technique which can help meet your goals in the least invasive manner. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides tummy tuck surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Traditional Approach to Tummy Tuck

A common type of abdominoplasty involves creating hip-to-hip incision. The surgery requires incisions to be made around the belly button as well. Traditional tummy tuck requires moving the belly button since it addresses the entire abdominal area. Patients tend to combine their tummy tuck surgery with abdominal liposuction.

Partial Abdominoplasties or Mini Tummy Tucks

Mini tummy tucks are for patients that are within 10% of their body’s ideal weight. These people are content with making changes to that part of the abdomen that is below their belly button. Partial abdominoplasties require a single small incision. They don’t involve repositioning the belly button and result in less significant changes to the way the abdomen appears as compared to other tummy tuck surgeries. However, they also involve a shorter recovery period as compared to other abdominoplasty procedures.

Endoscopic Tummy Tuck Surgery

This approach is taken on patients with little abdominal fat, weakened abdominal fat and less noticeable loose skin around the midsection. The tummy tuck procedure involves the use of a small camera attached to an endoscope or a slender tube. This is then inserted through the incision.

Endoscopic tummy tuck procedure results in less noticeable scarring. This is because the incision needs to be just large enough to allow surgeon’s tools and the endoscope to be inserted. This tummy tuck procedure is used on both men and women suffering from rectus diastasis. This is a disorder involving the separation of abdominal muscles at midriff.

Circumferential Tummy Tuck

This is often sought by people that have undergone gastric bypass surgery. It is similar to a body lift. Many insurance companies cover the dollar figure of circumferential tummy tuck procedures as part of the overall price tag of circumferential abdominoplasty.

Sagging skin can be a major health issue in addition to being an aesthetic one. Fungus can quickly form between skin folds. Circumferential abdominoplasty involves removal of excess skin from the central abdominal area, hips, buttocks, and thigh. Scars in this type of surgery may extend all the way to the back.
