Procedure

ie181012silouette_abdominoplastie The excess skin and fat are removed surgically from the abdominal area. Depending on the needs of the patient, the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. The incision is a half moon shape (length dependant on the mass of skin and fat to be removed), and is usually made directly under the overhanging skin.

Abdominoplastie

Length

Approximately two to four hours.

Anesthesia

Most commonly patients are placed under general anesthesia. This procedure can also be performed with a regional nerve block obtained with local anesthetic agents.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Either is possible and depends on the patient’s health and the doctor’s preference.

Possible Side Effects

Temporary discomfort, post-operative swelling, soreness or tenderness in the surrounding areas, numbness of abdominal skin and bruising are possible side effects.

Risks

Infection, bleeding under the skin flap or at the incision site, pulmonary embolism (a blood clot that travels to the lung), scarring (keloids), delayed healing, or the need for a second reversionary operation are potential risks:

Recovery

The patient may return to work within two to four weeks. Upon re-evaluation by the physician, the patient – may return to more strenuous activity after approximately four to six weeks. Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from three months to one year after surgery

Procedure

iwf263580silouhette_liposussion Improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and a vacuum device. This procedure can be performed using the tumescent or the super-wet techniques. Liposuction techniques typically are performed after targeted fat cells are infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic and adrenalin to decrease blood loss, allow an easier removal of the fat, as well as diminish postoperative discomfort. This also reduces post-operative bruising and swelling. The most common locations for liposuction are: chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms, the area above the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles. There are two types of techniques commonly used: the “Traditional Technique” and the “Ultrasonic Technique (UA)”. The Traditional Technique utilizes a hollow tube to remove the fat and the Ultrasonic Technique utilizes ultrasonic energy to dissolve that fat before it is removed. (See your Physician regarding which technique would be best for you)

Liposuccion

Length

Traditional: One to two hours or more UAL is peel out: 20-40% longer than Traditional liposuction

Anesthesia

General anesthesia can be used or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.

Inpatient/Outpatient

This is an outpatient procedure.

Possible Side Effects

Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness or burning sensations.

Risks

Infection, asymmetry, rippling of the skin, pigmentation changes (hypo/hyper), injury to the skin, fluid retention and/or excessive loss of blood and fluids.

Recovery

The patient usually returns to work after five to fourteen days. More strenuous activity may be resumed after two to four weeks. Full recovery from swelling and bruising may take one to six months depending upon the amount of fat that is removed and the areas that were treated.

Results

The effect is permanent and must be augmented with a sensible diet and consistent exercise.

Thigh Lift

Procedure

v335724BRAS A thigh lift refers to a variety of operations that remove skin and fat from the upper leg (thigh) area in order to improve contours by removing bulk and or loose soft tissues.

Length

2 to 4.5 hours depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. Usually requires at least one position change and re-prepping and draping as patients are switched from front to back or vice versa.

Possible Side Effects

Most common is wound breakdown at the intersection of suture lines in the groin because of excessive stretch of the tight closure caused by patient movement.

Widened scars can occur because of tension in these areas as well.

Risks

Similar to risks associated with any surgery, including infection, hematoma and fluid collection. Pulmonary embolism is a remote possibility.

Recovery

Requires 3-4 weeks of restricted movement: no spreading of the legs or excessive flexion. Best done in colder months of the year because special post-operative garment wear for support is important.

Results

This type of surgery is generally well tolerated and appreciated by patients.

Brachioplasty

Procedure

The surgical rejuvenation of the upper arm remains a persistent problem for both the patient and the surgeon, despite the many techniques that have been proposed for its improvement. The goal of the brachioplasty is to reduce skin redundancy and to reduce the circumference of the arm. When there is good skin tone or minimal skin sagging, fat deposits can be reduced by liposuction. But marked skin redundancy or laxity can only be improved by surgery. The incision has to be placed in an axillar crease and in the internal aspect of the arm along a line extending from the axilla to the epicondyle of the elbow. Then a piece of skin-dermis and fat is removed and the subcutis and skin are closed using routine aesthetic suturing.

Length

Two to three hours.

Anesthesia

The anesthesia can be general or local with sedation.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Both options are possible.

Possible Side Effects

In some cases edema or lymphoedema of the arms can result.

Risks

Highly visible or keloid scars and cutaneous nerve injuries.

Recovery

The healing process may take 7-10 days. An elastic bandage or compression garment may be recommended for several months.

Results

Good and stable results can be achieved in young patients with adiposities and good skin tone as well as in adults of older age, sometimes with the help of several months of postoperative elastic compression.
