Middle age women regularly accumulate subcutaneous fat in their abdomen, flanks and back, losing their hourglass appearance, regardless of strict dieting and aggressive exercise. Through Body-Jet® Lipo and Vibroliposuction, our surgeons are able to not only reach these areas for fat extraction, but also to tighten the corresponding skin, restoring the youthful feminine shape.
Young women, although frequently have great bodies, sometimes suffer from unsightly fat accumulation in their lower abdomen, love handles and hips (muffin top). Despite not being obese, these beautiful women hide their bodies due to the small rolls that sometimes show over their jeans and belts. Liposuction is the best proven method to eliminate this fat. Also, women who have excessive fat accumulation in their outer thighs (saddle bags) and inner thighs, carry an abnormal lower body contour that gives them an overweight appearance. Liposuction of the outer thighs, when performed properly, provides natural and smooth contour lines that help restore the hourglass shape of the female body.
Male liposuction is more frequently performed than once thought. Men, who have achieved good results from extensive work outs, sometimes maintain resilient adipose tissue in localized areas of the abdomen and flanks. They often request liposuction or liposculpture to further improve their physique. Due to the thickness and quality of their skin, fit men commonly achieve great liposculpture results.
Abundant fat tissue in the male breast gives a feminine appearance to their chest. This medical condition known as gynecomastia needs prompt consideration. Liposuction successfully corrects this condition restoring not only a natural masculine look, but also in many patients, reinstating their confidence.
Men and women with abnormal fat accumulation in their neck, known as double chin, undergo liposuction procedures to optimize the contour of the jaw and neck giving patients a youthful slender look.
Finally, patients who previously attained sub-optimal results after tummy tuck and various liposuction procedures carried out in other facilities, greatly benefit from the application of these technologies to further improve their outcomes. We frequently perform post tummy-tuck and post conventional liposuction corrective procedures achieving dramatic results. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center has a well established program to assist patients from other states and countries.
In summary, any healthy patient who has unsightly fat accumulation is a good candidate for liposuction surgery. At Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center, we are committed to providing high quality services with no complications. Historically, our patients have not needed to undergo continuous cardiac or respiratory monitoring, intravenous fluid replacement, intravenous antibiotic therapy, blood transfusions, reversion of sedatives and narcotics or exploratory surgery.
minimally invasive skin tightening: injectable radiofrequency or thermirf™
ThermiRF is an energy based device that delivers heat under the skin to cause immediate collagen contraction and triggers wound healing that thightens skin andsubcutaneous tissue. It is a minimally invasive technique allows physicians to cause natural contouring of the face, neck and body without surgery. ThermiRFdevice is currently being used for treatment of cellulite to smooth out lumps after liposuction, reduce excessive underarm sweating, tighten loose vaginal skin, reduce double chins, and most commonly, for reduction of wrinkles and loose skin in the lower face and neck. The difference between ThermiRF and previous noninvasive radiofrequency tightening devices is that it deploys the actual energy directly to the fibers under the skin that need to be contracted, sparing the heat sensitive surface of the skin.
Skin tightening occurs when the deep dermal skin reaches a temperature of 47°C or higher. Then, the body senses this as an injury and the healing response is triggered. An intense production of collagen helps generate new collagen resulting in firmer, tighter, more elastic skin. The deep skin and fat layer can tolerate over 50°C without incurring visible burns. The surface skin can only tolerate about 42°C.
ThermiRF has a tiny probe that is introduced underneath the skin through a needle hole. The tip of the probe has an electrode that emits tiny bursts of radio frequency energy. The probe has a temperature gauge that allows monitoring of the exact temperature that is being reached at the target. In addition, the The rmiRF system utilizes a state of the art thermal camera to continuously monitor the temperature at the surface of the skin. This treatment allows the doctor to safely bring the temperature of the deep skin to the optimal level for skin tightening.
non-invasive skin tightening: sciton skin tyte™
Skin Tyte is a non-invasive technique that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the skin surface with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted subcutaneous heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body's natural healing process, resulting in a firmer more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. In order to increase safety, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses additional state of the art infrared technology to monitor target surfaces. This enables Skin Tyte to be manipulated to increase relevant heat to higher levels in the subcutaneous space. Since there is no downtime, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. Skin Tyteoffers fast, safe and effective treatments of the face including jowls and around the eyes, neck, hands and abdomen tailored for all skin types without complications.
who are good candidates for a tummy tuck using current minimally invasive techniques?
Healthy, non-smoking individuals who have abnormal abdominal fat accumulation in combination with flaccid or damaged skin are good candidates. Women of child-bearing age who are not planning to get pregnant in the foreseable future and women with lower abdominal stretch marks and unsightly surgical scars are also considered good candidates for the above procedure.
