The Perfect Combination

Rhinoplasty And Chin Augmentation Together is The Perfect Combination. Rhinoplasty is more commonly known as “a nose job” is surgery performed on the nose that changes the shape or the structure of it. Many people who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their nose can benefit from rhinoplasty procedures. There are many procedures which have been perfected over the past decade making something that used to be very invasive, much less so. For many rhinoplasty procedures, there is minimal downtime, and the cost is affordable. Chin augmentation is when you change the structure of your chin by either lessening its appearance, or enhancing it. The new innovative procedures developed for chin augmentation is likewise much less costly and invasive.

 Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation

There are times when rhinoplasty and chin augmentation are done to make your appearance more appealing and others when there has been damage to the areas that need surgery. Whatever the reason that the surgeries are indicated, if both are to be performed, there is an advantage to doing them in combination instead of separately. For obvious reasons, the downtime is much less, when doing them at the same time, as is the pain and recovery. On top of those reasons, there is evidence to suggest that they are more effective when done in concordance, with more lasting results, than when done independently. It is also less expensive to have the surgeries done at the same time. Instead of scheduling two different anesthesias, operating times, etc., the cost is considerably less when it is all done at the same time.

When rhinoplasty and chin augmentation are performed together the results are not only longer lasting, they have a tendency to be more appropriately proportioned. When done together, the changes are made so that they combined to be more natural and overall, a better fit for the entire appearance of the individual. With no obvious back draw to having them done together, if you intend to have the work done, it is best to schedule it all to be performed at the same time.

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures among women. There are many different procedures to enhance breast but most popular are Breast implants. There are two types of breast implant that can be used for the augmentation.  Silicone breast implants are the ones now used for the majority of procedures, since they give a more realistic look and feel to the breasts.  These use medical grade silicone, which has been thoroughly tested to ensure that problems such as allergic reactions will not occur.  The semi-solid silicone gel used to fill the most modern forms of the implants is designed to prevent leakage and the movement of silicone into the body.

Saline filled breast implants give a less realistic look and feel after implantation, so now they are used less frequently.  However, the main advantage of the saline implant is that they can be inserted using a much smaller incisions, as they are designed to be filled once they are in place within the body.Breast Implants

Breast implants are considered to be class 3 medical devices, and have a limited lifespan.  The older models of breast implant, particularly the saline implants, were prone to rupturing, causing the saline to leak into the body.  The capsule can then be easily removed.  Silicone implants, when they rupture, may cause the slow leakage of the contents into the body.  This can lead to clinical complications such as enlarged lymph glands and inflammation.  The longer that the implants are present in the body, the more likely it is that complications will occur.  However, the modern silicone implants are much less likely to rupture than previous generations of implants, due to the dramatic improvements that have been made in the quality and design.

For the second generation of silicone filled breast implants, designed and used throughout the 1970s, the rupture rate at ten years after implantation was between 8 and 15 percent of implants.  The first MRI scans of more recent implant designs, carried out at six years after implantation, showed a rupture rate of 1.1 percent.  Though the lifespan of the devices is improving, the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) emphasizes that breast implants are not designed to last the lifetime of the patient.

Choosing The Right Size Breast Implants

Breast Augmentation has been the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in many years, with almost 300,000 cosmetic procedures being carried out in the United States during 2012.  When you are considering breast augmentation, you need to ensure that you choose a reputable, qualified surgeon who has experience in carrying out the procedure. Be sure to check the qualifications of any surgeon you are considering, and also see whether they are registered with the appropriate professional organizations.

It is essential for you to have an initial consultation with the surgeon who will be carrying out your procedure, so that you can ask any questions that you have.  Make a list of things that you need to ask before your appointment, to make sure that you don’t forget anything.  Ask about the surgeon’s experience and also to see photographs of previous procedures that the surgeon has performed.  This will help to give you a realistic idea of what the final results will be.breast augmentation Continue reading

The Scarless Tummy Tuck

Mini Tummy Tuck’s are gaining popularity with being the Scar less tummy tuck of today. A mini tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdominal area.  It is similar to the tummy tuck procedure, but does not involve the repositioning of the navel, which would ensure that the belly button remains in an appropriate location.

The mini tummy tuck flattens the abdomen by removing excess tissue from the area below the belly button.  This is done by making incisions to create a flap of skin.  The fat underneath this is then removed, and the skin flap stitched back into place.  The operation takes approximately an hour, and you may need to stay in hospital overnight.

The main difference between the mini tummy tuck and the full tummy tuck is that the incisions are shorter and there is no movement of the belly button.  The mini version of the procedure is most suitable for anyone who has excess fat in the lower abdomen, between the navel and the pubic bone.  Both procedures are extremely popular, and you should discuss which would be most appropriate for you when you attend your initial consultation with your chosen surgeon.Tummy Tuck Vs Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck would be most appropriate if you are looking to flatten the lower part of the abdomen, and is particularly popular among women who have had difficulty regaining their figure after giving birth.  The procedure also improves the appearance of stretch marks and can help to regain the firmness of the abdominal wall.

The procedure can be carried out under either local or general anaesthetic, though it is recommended that a general anaesthetic is used to improve comfort.  An incision will then be made around the pubic area, and this will be up to fifteen centimeters long.  Once the fat has been removed, this will be stitched and supporting bandages will be applied.  It is important that you follow your doctor’s advice about wearing these, in order to obtain the best results.

Before you agree to any cosmetic procedure, you should discuss the benefits and risks with your surgeon before you agree to the surgery.  Ask any questions that you might have, and be prepared to talk about your reasons for wanting surgery and what your expectations are.  It is important that these are realistic, or you may find that you are disappointed with the results.  Ask to see photographs from mini tummy tucks that the surgeon has carried out in the past, so that you know what to expect.
