You have figured out how you spent your quarantine days. While eating cake for breakfast or local gyms are close so no exercise at all. Have have heard about the "freshman 15" ?? the "quarantine 15" is the same idea.
Physicians in across the country say quarantine may have changes the dietary and exercise habits and are causing people to gain weight. If you are doing the same or now facing with the same problem. there's still plenty of time to get in shape in 2021, and some Body Contouring/Bodysculpting options of MHplasticsurgery can help you feel your best in what we all hope is a more joyous and satisfying.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that targets pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to drop no matter how many crunches you do. While lipo is not designed for weight loss, it is an ideal body contouring procedure for someone close to their ideal body weight and looking to remove unwanted fat. Liposuction is not limited to the abdominal area and can target fat in the thighs, hips and buttocks, upper arms, back, inner knees, chest, calves and ankles.
Pain after surgery is mild and well controlled with oral pain medication. Moderate swelling and bruising are common side effects. The bruising normally takes two to three weeks to subside. About half the swelling will usually have subsided by two weeks, and about seventy percent by one month. Downtime ranges from a few days to about one week, depending on the amount of work done. Stitches are removed after one week.
Compression garments are worn over the treated body parts for a total of six weeks, initially all the time for the first two weeks, then about half the time for the next two weeks, followed by nightly for the last two weeks.
Exercise can be resumed at one month after surgery. By three months, about ninety percent of the final result can usually be seen, with the final result being attained at about six months postoperatively.
The results are normally long lasting as long as body weight is maintained.
Risks associated with liposuction include blood loss, infection, uneven contours, and skin burns. Blood loss is carefully managed by technical measures that minimize bleeding during the procedure. If large volumes of fat are to be removed, a planned blood transfusion using the patient’s own blood previously donated to the blood bank specifically for this purpose is carried out. This is known as autologous blood transfusion, and the blood is transfused immediately after the surgery. Another useful blood preservation technique that is used for large volume liposuction is hemodilution. In this technique, one or two units of blood are drawn out by the anesthetist at the start of the operation, and transfused back into the patient at the end of the surgery. These types of proactive management of blood loss ensure that the patient does not lose excessive amounts blood from the procedure, and maintains the safety of the procedure.
The problem of uneven contours caused by uneven fat removal is minimized by the liquefying effect of the ultrasound energy on the solid fat.
The ultrasound energy of Vaser translates into heat energy. This is what produces the skin tightening effect. However, excessive heat energy applied to the skin can cause burns. Therefore, several technical precautions are observed in using this technology that ensure that the risk of this complication is low.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging skin, weak muscles and pockets of fat in the abdominal area. With traditional tummy tucks, you leave the hospital with a drain in place to remove excess fluids that build up. A drainless tummy tuck avoids your body's lymphatic system, enabling you to naturally drain this fluid after your tummy tuck. In many cases, a drainless tummy tuck will also include liposuction.
With a tummy tuck, you can expect to take at least 2 weeks off from school or work for your recovery, but if you are working from home during quarantine, this is the perfect time. Once your swelling and tightness subside, you will see a flatter and firmer waistline and the body contours you were looking for. Just keep eating healthy and following a regular exercise routine and you can enjoy that slimmer waistline for years to come.
The surgical Mommy Makeover comprises breast augmentation to restore breast volume and shape (with a breast lift if sagging is present), and either RFAL or abdominoplasty to address the tummy issues. Please see the sections on , , and Abdominoplasty for detailed information.
RFAL is the procedure of choice when excess fat with mild to moderate skin laxity are the main problems. On the other hand, if muscle laxity or separation and severe skin laxity are present, then abdominoplasty is the appropriate option. Dr Huang will discuss the different options with you and advise you on which option is suitable for your condition after analyzing it.
