Plastic Surgery Facelifts Go to New Heights

Millions of people every year has cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks. If you’re thinking of getting a plastic surgery facelift, you should consider having several procedures at the same time. One round of anesthesia, one recovery, several amazing results! In many cases, added benefits can come from non-invasive treatments that complement the rejuvenating effects of the facelift.

Other Surgeries

Facelifts are often done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries, such as eye and neck lifts. The deep creases, fine lines, and saggy tissues on the eyelids and the neck are erased for a complete youthful appearance. Nose reshaping, cheek or jaw augmentation, and ear surgery may also be performed to achieve a facial balance or symmetry. You may opt for a mini facelift and a combination of brow lift, eyelid surgery, fat transfer to the temple area and laser skin resurfacing – a common combination that skillfully addresses the signs of aging and turns back the clock!

Do You Want to Get a Brazilian Butt Lift in Miami?

Perhaps a better question you should ask yourself is “have you ever wished that the fat in your belly went to your butt instead?” As bizarre as it sounds, this is actually possible with the help of gluteoplasty or a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. You heard that right: there is a way to transfer your unwanted body fat to the one place where most people like it and could use a little boost!

15Brazilian Butt Lifts are essentially a type of liposuction, only the fat is transferred to the hind quarters to shape a perkier, more youthful backside. The first step is identifying “transfer sites” in your buttocks, then “donor sites” in your body, i.e. fatty areas that you want removed. Traditional liposuction takes the unwanted fat away, most often slimming the waist. Then the surgeon transfers the fat into just the right places in your back side, typically in the upper quadrants, creating a pleasing curve and restoring fullness.

Recovery may take a few weeks and you’ll be required to use a special pillow to support the newly transferred fat, protecting the curvy shape you’ve just gained. Following the doctor’s orders for recovery produces the best results.

 

 

A Better Understanding of FUE Hair Transplants

Hair restoration technology has improved greatly in recent years. Among the several options available to restore hair, Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) FUE, single Follicular units (that means groupings of 1, 2, 3, and sometimes, 4 hair follicles)  are able to be extracted individually from the donor area without a scalpel. This is great news for the patient, as they will not require any stitches and there is no remaining scar.FUE is a far less invasive procedure that heals faster and has less activity restrictions post-operatively.  is the method many consider to be the most effective procedure for hair transplantation.

What is an FUE hair transplant?

In the FUE process, hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head from an area the plastic surgeon determines holds the best donor hairs for the best result. Using a pneumatic device, a specially trained technician or plastic surgeon extracts the follicles one by one and prepares them for transplant a bit later in the procedure.  The patient is under slight sedation but is awake during the entire process. The surgeon has also determined where to place the follicles and that area is prepared for transplant. The follicles are precisely placed as individually as they were taken. There is a bit of artistry in this process, following natural hair lines and contours, ensuring each hair is placed for proper growth angle as well. No scalpel, no scar, no cutting, no sutures. FUE means greatly reduced down time and better success per graft. All in all, FUE is more comfortable, has better results and that is good for patient and practitioner.

Why should you choose FUE?

This type of hair transplantation—which allows for little to no discomfort in the donor area, and almost zero downtime—is less invasive than traditional hair transplant methods. It also produces more natural-looking results. Healing time relies heavily on skin type, but the grafts settle in a matter of days, and any redness or swelling from the procedure goes away in about 4 to 5 days. FUE hair transplants still require the experience and artistry of a skilled surgeon though, so choose carefully. There is a big difference between the price of the procedure and the real cost to you.

FUE is popular among men and women. Even famous chef Gordon Ramsey has had the procedure a couple of times, keeping his boyish blonde locks full and very recognizable.
