Best Questions To Ask Before Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery

Best Questions To Ask Before Tummy Tuck Plastic Surgery

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck cosmetic surgery or abdominoplasty helps people with weakened stomach muscles or sagging skin around the tummy area. However, it’s critical for patients to understand the factors involved in a tummy tuck surgery and its limitations. Your doubts will be cleared completely by dedicated plastic surgeons during the initial consultation.

Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan, provides full and partial abdominoplasty to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Am I of the right age for a tummy tuck surgery?

Doctors may not perform abdominoplasty on people that are younger than 18 years of age. It is safe for people in their 20s to get the surgery performed. However, several surgeons recommend patients to wait until they are a little older. This is especially true in the case of women since they may want to get pregnant. Abdominoplasty doesn’t have a cut-off age. However, senior patients are required to undergo a complete medical exam before getting the surgery.

Am I a candidate for tummy tuck procedure?

You should schedule an appointment with a dedicated, responsible, and experienced plastic surgeon. They can discuss your health, goals, body type and mental readiness for the plastic surgery. Together, it can be determined if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure or not.

Can my surgery be covered by my insurance company?

Abdominoplasty is an elective procedure and not covered by insurance companies usually. However, in some cases, panniculectomy may be covered. This is if the excess skin is causing significant discomfort or infection. You can always consider flexible financing options that may make the procedure affordable.

Will tummy tuck help me lose weight?

Tummy tuck procedures are not for weight loss. However, you may look as if you have lost weight. You may lose a negligent amount of weight following the surgery because of the removal of surplus skin. Patients find it easier to keep excess pounds off by maintaining a healthier lifestyle in a bid to keep their sleeker and flatter figure.

Do I need to wear the compression garment for long?

Your doctor will recommend the exact duration that you need to wear the compression garment depending on your needs and goals. Many patients cease wearing the compression garment after two weeks. In other cases, patients need to wear the garment for up to eight weeks.

Is abdominoplasty possible after a C-section?

Yes, in fact, you should consider abdominoplasty following a C-section to take care of damaged muscles and loose abdominal skin. Most doctors recommend waiting at least 6 months following a C-section to get an abdominoplasty.

Is it possible to get pregnant following a tummy tuck procedure?

Tummy tuck procedure will not impact the health of your baby. It will neither make the delivery harder. However, doctors recommend that you refrain from getting an abdominoplasty if you plan on getting pregnant. This is because the skin and muscles stretch again when you are pregnant.

Facial Skin Tightening With FaceTite

FaceTite

Genetics, aging, smoking, and sun exposure among other factors can significantly affect the skin. This is especially true for the face, neck, and jowls. People that want to look as young as they feel can benefit from FaceTite. This is a nonsurgical and effective procedure.

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides FaceTite facial skin tightening treatments to patients in Dallas, Plano, Texas, and surrounding locations.

What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is a predictable, innovative, and safe procedure which can provide dramatic improvements. This minimally invasive contouring treatment can be performed on the face and other small body areas. The procedure involves the use of REAL or Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis technology. This is a 3-D procedure that helps in recontouring facial tissues.

FaceTite is one of the best things after a facelift. The treatment has power cut-off, real-time skin measurements, real time fat temperature, audible feedback, and impedance monitoring among other in-built safeguards. FaceTite by InMode can be used in the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Forehead
  • Jawline
  • Brow
  • Mouth
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Cheeks
  • Eyes

Benefits of FaceTite

FaceTite treatments have three major benefits:

  • Dual temperature technology offering superior control and safety
  • Directional thermal field that assists with fat coagulation and tissue remodeling
  • Complete energy concentration at the treatment site

Understanding the FaceTite Technology

FaceTite makes use of a non-aspirating cannula with a plastic tip. Your treatment provider will perform the procedure within the sub-dermal plane. Computer-controlled RF energy, which has been around for over 75 years is used for heating the skin.

Most patients get the results they seek from a single treatment session. The procedure doesn’t require general anesthesia and is usually performed as an outpatient procedure.

How Does the Procedure Work?

FaceTite can transform your facial skin to make it tighter, smoother and younger. You can expect dramatic changes to your facial concerns. The procedure can significantly tighten the skin and reduce fat. With that said, the procedure does not cause irregular or lumpy appearance of the skin. This is usually the case with liposuction.

FaceTite results can last for up to 5 years even though the skin continues to age naturally. Your lifestyle choices and genetics will determine the longevity of procedure.

RF energy applied during the FaceTite procedure melts surplus fat by penetrating into deep facial tissues. The procedure also shrinks loose facial skin tissue. Collagen growth is stimulated by the heat energy. It also helps volumize the facial tissue. This works to reduce the facial signs of aging naturally.

Downtime and Recovery

FaceTite doesn’t involve any night stay since it is a low-impact procedure. The sutures will not cause any bruising or scarring. Your treatment provider will administer local anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable. Most patients benefit from a shorter recovery time. The treatment can be used on fragile skin without causing any cellular damage.

Built-in thermal controls in the applicator device ensure complete patient safety. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Plano, Texas, and nearby areas for FaceTite facial skin tightening procedure.

Skin Resurfacing With Venus Versa

Venus Versa

Venus Versa is an advanced and noninvasive skin resurfacing solution for improving the overall texture of the skin. It effectively combines SmartScan technology and NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) to get healthier and smoother skin. NanoFractional Radio Frequency Skin Resurfacing involves the delivery of energy through the surface of the skin. It rebuilds collagen and stimulates fibroblasts.

The results include reduced skin damage with little or no downtime. The procedure is also effective in reducing traumatic scars, acne scars, rosacea, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, dyschromia, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, and pigmentation.

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides Venus Versa skin resurfacing treatments to patients in Dallas, Plano, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Effectively Combine Two Advanced Technologies

Two cutting edge technologies are effectively combined in Venus Versa skin resurfacing treatment. SmartScan and NanoFractional RF technologies effectively work together to treat multiple concerns. These treatments cover a greater surface area at the same time. Depending on your individual needs, the treatment can be performed with varying intensity.

NanoFractional RF technology makes use of tiny pins for safely delivering heat through the skin’s surface. SmartScan technology can target your concerns effectively by creating a unique pin. Tiny micro-dermal wounds are created by the pins which helps the body heal naturally.

The process is useful in repairing signs of skin damage. The treatment is a lot more comfortable than chemical peels and lasers because the wounds are small. This results in healthier and smoother skin with minimal downtime.

Visible and Safe Results

These are a few things that can be achieved with Venus Versa:

  • Reduce rosacea
  • Fade scars
  • Diminish stretch marks
  • Shrink enlarged pores
  • Correct textural irregularities
  • Smooth deep wrinkles

Treatment Benefits of Venus Versa

Photofacial treatments are helpful in reducing the visible signs of aging, such as brown spots, sun damage, discoloration, visible veins, wrinkles, and fine lines. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse technology is usually used by most acne treatments for treating visible symptoms and underlying cause of acne.

This makes use of a combination of red and blue light that is delivered simultaneously. Red light reduces existing inflammation for faster healing while blue light destroys all acne causing bacteria. Laser hair removal treatment can be used for reducing unwanted hair on the body and face. The treatment delivers energy in the deep skin layers for targeting hair pigments and destroying follicles.

Wrinkle reduction treatments make use of energy that is delivered through Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields and Multi-Polar Radio Frequency. Uniform heat is produced under the surface of the skin. The process increases the production of elastin fibers and collagen naturally. This results in smoother, firmer, and noticeably younger looking skin.

Number of Sessions

A typical Venus Versa program consists of 3 to 6 treatment sessions that are performed 4 to 6 weeks apart. The exact number of treatment sessions will depend on the area being treated and the individual. You should be able to put on makeup and resume with your regular skincare routine after about 24 hours of the treatment.

Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Plano, Texas, and nearby areas for Venus Versa skin resurfacing procedure.
