Fat Grafting can add fullness to any part of the buttocks. The fat is first gently liposuctioned from the abdomen, flanks hips or thighs and then processed using a sterile technique. The fat is then injected under the skin above the muscle of the buttocks.

This procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia. Fat grafting assures lasting results and gives a very natural shape and feel to the buttocks.

What to Expect During Laser Cellulite Treatment

The procedure takes approximately an hour to complete. Following treatment, patients can return home to recover. Patients may experience some minor side effects including some slight bruising and swelling in the treatment area.

Since laser cellulite treatments use local anesthetic and are minimally invasive, recovery times are short and patients are able to resume their normal activities within a matter of days. Patients will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of cellulite after just a single session.

In the three to six months following laser cellulite treatment you will see the best results. By following a healthy diet and maintaining a regular exercise regimen, patients can enjoy results lasting up to three years.

Cellulaze

Does it seem like you’ve tried everything to get rid of stubborn cellulite? Lotions, creams, massages,even diet and exercise claim to remove cellulite, but fail to improve the appearance of dimpled skin. Cellulite is a hereditary problem, caused by fibrous bands that pull down on the surface of the skin.

Cellulaze laser cellulite treatments are effective because they target the structure of cellulite. By weakening the fibrous bands below the surface of the skin, removing fat and stimulating new collagen production, skin becomes smoother and cellulite disappears.

How Laser Cellulite Treatment Works

Cellulaze laser cellulite treatments are revolutionary. A very small tube containing a laser fiber is inserted under the skin through a small incision and delivers concentrated laser energy directly to fat cells.

Then, the body stimulates its own collagen and elastin production mechanisms to naturally improve the appearance of cellulite. The fibrous bands below the surface of the skin are relaxed, and cellulite disappears as the skin is flattened and smoothed out.

How is Smartlipo™ Different from Surgical Liposuction?

Smartlipo™ laser body contouring is a less invasive way to achieve results similar to those of surgical procedures. After undergoing surgical liposuction, patients often need follow-up surgeries to remove excess skin.

However, the heat from the laser stimulates collagen production to tighten the remaining skin and produces a firmer result. Since laser liposuction is minimally invasive, patients recover more quickly from the procedure.

Smart/Laser Lipo

Have you tried every fitness plan and diet, but can’t seem to lose stubborn fat from your problem areas? Finally, targeting trouble zones is possible with Smartlipo™ laser treatments. Laser liposuction is recommended for healthy individuals who are not significantly overweight, but live well and remain unsatisfied with their appearance.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

Smartlipo™ laser body sculpting is a minimally invasive procedure that remove excess fat from your problem areas. The laser energy liquefies fat cells, which are then suctioned away from the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, and knees.

At the same time, Smartlipo™ laser liposuction stimulates new collagen production to tighten the remaining skin. Smartlipo™ treatments allow you to achieve smoother and firmer results than surgical liposuction after only one treatment.

What to Expect During Laser Body Sculpting

Smartlipo™ laser liposuction is performed under local anesthesia to alleviate patient pain and discomfort. Some soreness will occur, but because laser body sculpting is minimally invasive, patients can recover at home after the treatment.

Most people can go back to work within a few days and return to exercising in about two weeks. Results will begin to appear in the week following treatment, with the best outcomes visible in the following three to six months.

Is liposuction right for me?

Liposuction is most commonly recommended for men and women of normal weight who simply want to improve their body contour. The procedure can produce excellent results for people who have deposits of excess fat that make certain body areas appear disproportionately large. Although liposuction is no-t a treatment for obesity, it can permanently alter body proportion and is sometimes the only way to eliminate fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.

People of almost any age may undergo liposuction; however, patients with good skin elasticity will achieve the smoothest contour after fat is removed. You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you desire fat removal or contouring in any of the following areas:

  • cheeks, chin and neck
  • upper arms
  • breast or chest area
  • back
  • abdomen and waist
  • hips and buttocks
  • thighs
  • inner knee
  • calves and ankles

You should arrive at the consultation ready to provide complete information about:

Depending on the parts of your body that you would like to be treated with liposuction, you may be asked to undress. Your surgeon will fully assess the extent of correction needed. You’ll also be asked to point out the exact areas where you would like to see improvement.

Your surgeon will check the elasticity of your skin and may feel certain areas to assess the thickness of the underlying layer of fat. Your surgeon will also check your blood pressure and weight, and ask you if you are planning to lose or gain weight in the future.

Tumescent Lipo

In today’s world, looking and feeling good mean having a fit, well-proportioned body. However, for many people, this may seem like an unreachable goal. Sometimes even a strict diet or a disciplined exercise program can’t conquer stubborn areas of excess fat. For those who seek a smoother or better-proportioned body contour, liposuction may be the answer.

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, face or neck. Liposuction can be used to slim the hips and thighs, flatten the abdomen, shape the calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin.

You’ll find basic information about liposuction in this brochure. However, the best way to get complete answers to specific questions that relate to your individual needs is to have a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Liposuction can …

  • be performed on several areas of the body at the same time or be done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures, as long as you understand that there is increased risk and your surgeon feels that having multiple procedures is a safe option for you.
  • be used to treat some cases of gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, which occurs in both teenagers and adult men.
  • Liposuction can slim the hips and thighs and provide a more shapely contour for the inner knee, calves and ankles.
  • Liposuction can flatten the abdomen, remove fat from the under-arms, eliminate a double chin and contour the face or neck.

Liposuction can’t…

  • serve as a substitute for dieting and exercise
  • effectively treat cellulite (a condition that gives the skin a dimpled appearance).

Also, certain medical conditions may complicate liposuction. They include: diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease and previous surgery near the area to be contoured. It’s important to let your plastic surgeon know if you have any of these medical conditions or if you have had surgery in the past

Frequently Asked Questions

How is liposuction performed?

To perform liposuction, one or more small incisions are made near the area to be auctioned. Whenever possible, incisions are placed within the natural folds or contour lines of the skin so that they are inconspicuous. The surgeon then places a slim, hollow tube called a cannula through the incision so that its tip penetrates the underlying fat.

After the cannula is connected by flexible tubing to a suction pump, the surgeon moves the cannula back and forth through the fat, which is vacuumed into the tube. Several variations to the basic liposuction technique have been introduced. The fat-removal technique that best meets your needs depends on a number of individual factors that your surgeon will discuss with you.

  • Your surgeon may use the tumescent technique, in which the fat is pre-injected with a salt-water solution containing small amounts of adrenaline and sometimes local anesthetic.
  • Your surgeon may also use ultrasound – assisted lipoplasty or UAL, a two-step technique that uses the energy from sound waves to liquefy the fat before it is auctioned.
  • The type of instrumentation used may also vary. For some areas, a hand-held syringe may be used to provide the vacuum instead of a suction pump.

How will I learn about the safety of liposuction?

Each year thousands of people undergo liposuction and experience no major complications. However, you must fully understand the risks as well as the benefits of the procedure.

One of the most important parts of your consultation is the discussion that you and your surgeon will have about the possible complications of liposuction. In addition to listening carefully to what your surgeon tells you, be sure to raise any questions or concerns that you may have about the safety of the procedure.

By carefully following your surgeon’s advice and instructions – both before and after surgery – you can do your part to minimize some of the risks.

What can I do to prepare for my surgery?

When the date for your surgery has been set, your plastic surgeon will provide you with specific instructions for the days immediately before and after your surgery. A number of points may be covered, including:

  • avoiding certain medications that may complicate surgery or recovery
  • stopping smoking for a period of time before and after surgery
  • arranging for help or special care following surgery

How will I be cared for on the day of my surgery?

Liposuction may be performed in a hospital, an outpatient surgery center or an office-based surgical suite. Various types of anesthesia can be used for liposuction. Your surgeon will select the type of anesthesia that provides the safest and most effective level of comfort for your procedure.

For some patients, local anesthesia is used (usually with sedation) which numbs only the affected areas. For others, regional anesthesia, such as an epidural block (the kind of anesthesia commonly used in childbirth) or general anesthesia may be the best choice. Your physical status will be closely monitored throughout the procedure and during your recover

How will I look and feel after surgery?

You may notice that clothes fit more comfortably and you feel more confident about your new, slimmer appearance.

When the procedure is complete, you will be taken to a recovery area. For some patients, small drainage tubes will have been placed beneath the skin. Any discomfort you may feel can be controlled with medication prescribed by your plastic surgeon. An elastic bandage or specially designed compression garment may have been applied over the treated areas to control swelling and assist healing. Your plastic surgeon will tell you how long you must wear the garment and how you can remove it to bathe.

If only a small amount of liposuction has been done, you will be encouraged to get out of bed very shortly after the surgery. If multiple areas have been treated, you will probably remain in bed for a day or two, getting up to go to the bathroom and for meals.

Keep in mind that the speed of your recovery depends largely on the extent of your surgery. Although everyone heals at a different rate, you can expect that your recovery will follow this general time line:

Within the first week

  • The swelling will reach its peak and then begin to subside.
  • Your stitches will be removed.
  • You may return to nonstrenuous work.

After several weeks

  • Bruises will fade and eventually disappear.
  • Areas that felt numb will regain normal sensation.
  • You may resume most of your normal exercise and activities.
  • Swelling will continue to subside.

What should I know about my results?

Quite soon after surgery you will see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body. However, improvement will become even more apparent after a couple of months, when fluid retention and swelling have subsided. For most patients, the final result is evident after about three months.

After your liposuction surgery, you may notice that clothes fit more comfortably and you feel more confident about your appearance. As long as you maintain your postoperative weight, your new, slimmer contour will be permanent. Many patients who gain a few pounds after surgery find that the weight distributes itself more evenly and does not settle in the same “problem areas.”

Within the first week

  • The swelling will reach its peak and then begin to subside.
  • Your stitches will be removed.
  • You may return to nonstrenuous work.

After several weeks

  • Bruises will fade and eventually disappear.
  • Areas that felt numb will regain normal sensation.
  • You may resume most of your normal exercise and activities.
  • Swelling will continue to subside.

How long will I continue to see my surgeon?

After the initial healing period, you will return to your surgeon’s office for a postoperative follow-up visit so that your progress can be evaluated. In the following months, your surgeon may ask you to return for periodic checkups. It’s important to keep these appointments so that your surgeon can assess your long-term results and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Choosing a qualified surgeon

No matter what type of surgery you’re considering, one of the most important factors in its success is the surgeon you choose. Although it may seem hard to believe, some of the physicians who are performing cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training at all.

It’s advisable to consider the following points before scheduling a consultation:

Find out if he or she is Board Certified for surgery. Surgeons with this certification have completed a minimum of four years of training following medical school, and residency programs. After training, a surgeon must pass comprehensive oral and written exams before being granted certification.

Ask about the surgeon’s hospital privileges

Even if you are planning to have your surgery in your doctor’s office or at a surgery center, it is important to find out if your surgeon has operating privileges in an accredited hospital. Before granting privileges, the hospital review committee evaluates a surgeon’s training and competency.

Profile has the ability to provide a treatment that is optimized to your skin condition. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated by the laser’s energy and become less noticeable.

What areas can be treated?

9 skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and legs. Discuss your needs with your physician.

Is there a risk?

There is little risk in the treatment of benign conditions. In some cases repeat treatment will be necessary depending on your response to the treatment and the result desired. Your doctor will discuss potential risks of your specific condition prior to treatment.

How long will it take to recover?

Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment. There is virtually no downtime and you may resume moderate activity immediately. You may experience erythema (redness) which may last several days. Your physician can answer questions about temporary changes to your skin color and how they may be camouflaged.

What should I expect after treatment?

Your skin will have a pink or red color that will resolve over time. You will need to avoid direct sun exposure, or use a sun block of at least SPF 15 when outdoors.

Will it be uncomfortable?

There should be little to no discomfort, however this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia and your physician will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment. There should be no lasting post treatment discomfort.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or Oasses. Profile’s laser beam will be delivered to the area of your skin being treated. You may briefly feel a warm or hot sensation as the laser pulses are preferentially absorbed in the unwanted vessels, heating and destroying them. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated.

What aftercare will I need?

It is important to follow your physician’s instructions. You may be given some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. This will minimize your risk of inflammation or redness and ensure the shortest response time. Any vessels denatured by the laser will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow.

Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure. Many of the condition, created by the laser will have been caused by sun -exposure, so avoiding the sun will prolong your new Youthful appearance. You need to fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.

Transumbilical Breast Augmentation Services New Jersey

The Technique

It is possible for our plastic surgeon to perform transumbilical breast augmentation, in a much quicker fashion and with less scarring. These implants can be placed above or below the pectoralis muscle using the TUBA technique.

By using the umbilical approach, the risks of bleeding, swelling, and bruising can be significantly reduced, and recovery times are typically much shorter than those associated with more invasive surgery.

Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)

TUBA, also known as belly button breast augmentation, is offered to patients who are considering breast implants to add volume and fullness to their bustline. One of the chief advantages to this state-of-the-art procedure is there is only one small incision made for implant placement hidden within the belly button and the resulting scar is virtually undetectable.

By placing the implants through the navel, only one incision is necessary, and it is a fraction of the length required for more invasive breast enlargement procedures. In addition, TUBA involves less risk than other breast augmentation options. Since no incisions are made on the breasts themselves, there is less of a possibility of damage to the breasts’ nerves.

Plus, the procedure is shorter than traditional breast augmentation methods, which reduces the risk of complications with anesthesia. Typically, this procedure takes less than 30 minutes.
