What Can You Do to Minimize a Tummy Tuck Scar?

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 17 February 2019

Whether you’ve had children, reached a major weight loss goal or are unhappy with sagging skin in your abdominal area for another reason, a tummy tuck can help you to get the tighter and more toned look you want. While there’s no way to avoid having a visible scar from your tummy tuck or to make it go away completely, there are a few things you can to do minimize its appearance.

1. Work with an experienced Plastic Surgeon – When choosing a plastic surgeon for your tummy tuck, make sure he has plenty of experience performing this type of body contouring procedure. With the right surgical skill and finesse, tummy tuck scars can be very smooth and well-hidden. On the other hand, working with an inexperienced plastic surgeon can not only lead to complications but may also result in a poorly hidden and poorly planned scar.

2. Bring Your Bikini to Your Consultation – During your consultation, you should discuss the specific placement of your tummy tuck incision. It can be helpful to bring in your swimsuit as a reference point to make sure your scar will be hidden when you hit the beach. A lower, flatter scar, for instance, will likely be a better option if you typically wear a low-cut bikini, whereas a higher, more rounded incision might be best if you wear a one-piece or higher bottoms.

3. Avoid Sun Exposure – The sun can negatively affect the way your scar heals, so make sure you cover it up and wear plenty of sunscreen when spending time in the sun during your recovery and up to a year afterwards.

3 Reasons to Get a Tummy Tuck before Summer

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 12 February 2019

If you’re getting ready for a cruise, beach getaway, or just planning to spend more time outdoors this summer, consider the benefits of a cosmetic procedure to achieve your ideal figure. Getting a tummy tuck could be just what you need to increase your self-confidence when stepping out in a bathing suit and summer ensembles this season!

Here are just three reasons to get a tummy tuck in Dubai before summer:

1. Reduce your waist size – Whether it’s because of loose skin, extra pockets of fat, or just genetics, you may be self-conscious about having a thicker waist. A tummy tuck procedure can reduce your waist size by several inches. I can remove excess skin via a traditional tummy tuck procedure, or can combine a tummy tuck with liposuction to address fatty deposits.

2. Significant results within a few months – Talk to me about the benefits of a tummy tuck procedure. Undergoing a body contouring procedure like a tummy tuck now means you can enjoy results within a few months — just in time for bathing suit season. In most cases, you’ll get better results from surgery than months of dieting and exercise.

If you are a better candidate for a mini-tummy tuck, you may be able to enjoy results even sooner.

3. Restore your abdominal wall – If your abdominal muscles have been stretched or torn after pregnancy or weight gain and weight loss, working out and eating right won’t help you achieve that tight and toned look you want. A tummy tuck can restore your abdominal wall and tighten weakened muscles.

The result is a very streamlined appearance and flat stomach. If you have a small “pooch” or a protruding stomach after pregnancy or weight fluctuations, you may be a great candidate for a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure could be just what you need to restore your figure after pregnancy or weight loss. Many women undergo this procedure simply to enhance their figure and achieve their ideal silhouette.

Deciding on the Best Tummy Tuck for You

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 8 February 2019

Pregnancy, lifestyle or aging may have left you with the appearance of imperfections in your tummy that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. A tummy tuck can eliminate sagging stomach skin, tighten separated abdominal muscles and remove stubborn fatty tissue. If you find yourself unhappy with the appearance of your midsection, deciding on the right tummy tuck for you can be the first step toward achieving a winning waistline.

The most common tummy tuck patients are women who have been pregnant or individuals who have achieved significant weight loss. In both cases, baggy skin, loose stomach muscles and excess fatty tissue are issues that frequently remain behind despite your best efforts to get in shape. However, a tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, so be sure to reach your target weight first for the best results.

A full tummy tuck can address the entire upper and lower abdomen. By removing some amount of fatty tissue before drawing the two halves of your abdominals together, I can create a slimmer shape for your midsection before tightening your stomach skin and excising any extra.

The mini tummy tuck is a less complex procedure that addresses the area of the stomach below the belly button only. As such, the mini tummy tuck can be a great option for patients with mild skin sagging and minimal abdominal separation confined to the lower abs. A mini tummy tuck can create beautiful results in the right candidates, but if your needs are more extensive, bear in mind that a full tuck likely will deliver better results.

Considering a Tummy Tuck after Your Pregnancy?

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 1 February 2019

After carrying a baby for nine months, your body is bound to change. Pregnancy results in loose skin around the stomach and weakened abdominal muscles. Though rather small prices to pay for the miracle of childbirth, it’s understandable that many women want to regain a semblance of their former figure after the baby comes. The main reasons for getting a tummy tuck are to strengthen the stomach muscles and tighten drooping, excess skin, but an added reason is the boost to your confidence. Always keep in mind that tummy tucks should be reserved until after you’re done having children, so you do not end up stretching out your retightened abs.

There are several guidelines to follow to get the best results from a tummy tuck after pregnancy. First, allow yourself the time and patience needed to lose the weight you’ve gained and to achieve a steady weight. Considering that it took nine months to gain those pounds, be patient with yourself as you drop the weight through proper diet and exercise. Pursuing a tummy tuck too soon after pregnancy, while your weight may still be fluctuating, will interfere with the outcome. Having a baby is a game-changer in every way possible, and it’s reasonable that you want to pursue getting your waistline back to its former glory. However, you’ll get the best results by waiting at least six months post-childbirth and nursing. A tummy tuck is a surgery that requires its own recovery time, and you want to ensure that your body is strong and healthy enough for optimum results.

Are dermal fillers right for you?

Fillers in Dubai | 31 January 2019

The most important thing to do before going ahead with a dermal filler treatment is to do your research. Firstly, think about what you want to achieve from the treatment. This will help you and your practitioner to narrow down the type of filler you’ll want to use and ensure your treatment resolves your primary concerns.

Secondly, set a strict budget for your treatment. Many treatments are only fully effective with multiple treatments or a combination of dermal fillers and botox. It’s important to be aware of this so that you aren’t left disappointed by a half effective course of treatment. You should also be wary of practitioners offering a cheap service. These treatments, when carried out by an experienced, qualified practitioner, should not be cheap. If someone is offering you a treatment for a lot less than other practitioners it may reflect the quality of the practitioner, product or clinic. With Dermal fillers, you get what you pay for. So if you’re looking for a high quality treatment with minimal side effects, you’ll need to pay for it.

Finally, once you think you’ve found the treatment and practitioner to suit you, make sure you meet them, ask questions and feel comfortable having them treat you. There should be no pressure put on you to get a treatment done right away or use any products that you haven’t specifically requested. Dermal fillers are safe and effective as long as you select a provider who will make every effort to minimise risk, work with you to address your concerns and follow up to ensure that you are well and satisfied, so make sure you know who you’re dealing with.

10 Facts about Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 28 January 2019

1 Over 330,000 women had breast augmentation or breast lift surgery in the United States in the past year!

2 According to RealSelf, breast augmentation has a 97% “worth it” rating and is one of the highest rated cosmetic procedures available to women.

3 Plastic surgeons have performed breast augmentations for women ranging in age from 18 to 72 years old.

4 Breast augmentation isn’t just for the young. A woman in her 40’s is just as likely to have a breast augmentation as a woman in her 20’s or 30’s.

5 The average breast cup size in the United States is on the rise, and currently rests at a 36C. Fifteen years ago, the average size was a 34B.

6 All women have one breast that is slightly larger than the other and many can have one breast slightly lower than the other. This normal anatomic asymmetry can be improved, but rarely totally corrected during augmentation surgery.

7 Today’s silicone gel-filled breast implants are one of the most rigorously tested devices on the market. They can withstand more than 25 times the force of a routine mammogram.

8 The belief that breast implants interfere with breast feeding is not entirely true. Breast implants under the muscle do not interfere with breast feeding.

9 Smokers’ breasts tend to sag more than non-smokers because the chemicals in cigarettes break down the body’s natural elastin.

10 Often patients don’t realize that swelling after implant placement can take a while to resolve. Final size and shape may not be realized for up to six months.

DO I NEED A “LIFT”?

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 25 January 2019

Breast sagging is a part of the natural aging process and can occur with pregnancy, breast feeding or significant weight loss. Women whoare unhappy with the appearance of their breasts due to sagging (ptosis)often consider breast lift surgery along with their breast augmentation.

Stand in front of a mirror and look at the location of your nipples in relationship to the crease beneath your breasts. If your nipples are lower than your breast crease BEFORE surgery, adding implants—without ALSO removing excess skin through a breast lift—would just make your breasts sag more. In this case, I typically advise women to undergo a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation.

Breast lifts are the most challenging aspect of female breast surgery.They require the expertise of a highly trained and experienced Plastic Surgeon.

Is a Tummy Tuck RIGHT FOR ME?

Tummy Tuck Dubai | 23 January 2019

If you have spent endless hours in the gym and followed a healthy and well-balanced diet but still struggle to achieve a flat tummy, you may be thinking about a tummy tuck. There may be times that excess fat and skin simply don’t respond to diet and exercise, especially in the abdominal area. The reason for that lingering fat and skin may be weight loss, pregnancy, or the simple result of aging. Some new moms even get tummy tucks as part of a “Mommy Makeover” that allows for a whole body overhaul. A new mom can get a breast lift, a tummy tuck, and a breast augmentation to become virtually a whole new woman. No matter what the reason that you are thinking about a tummy tuck, I can help. A tummy tuck can help restore your self-confidence and allow you to feel good about yourself again.

To decide whether tummy tuck surgery is right for you, you should first consider the reasons that you want to have the surgery.

The best reason to get a tummy tuck: You want one! This is something that you should do for yourself, not because someone else tells you that you need it or should have it. Although you can always consider the thoughts of your partner, your own thoughts on the tummy tuck are the most important thing by far. In short, tummy tucks are only right for people who truly want them or truly feel they need them.

While every person may have different reasons for wanting a tummy tuck, here are some of the most common.

• Have you struggled to get your flat tummy back following the birth of your children? Do the stretch marks in your abdominal area make you feel miserable when you look at them?

• Have you found that the older you get, the harder it is to keep the stomach area toned?

• Have you experienced a significant weight loss after weight loss surgery and now find that you’ve got excess skin that makes your abdominal area look awful?

• Do you exercise and put considerable effort into toning your tummy, but never get the results you’re looking for?

• Do you diet and eat right, but find that your abdominal area just doesn’t respond like the rest of your body does?

Any of these reasons can be excellent reasons for choosing a tummy tuck. However, it is important to know that a tummy tuck can’t replace weight loss. It is not a magic bullet that will instantly take a person from being very overweight to being super svelte. However, people who are of healthy weight – or who are as close as possible to their ideal weight range – can often benefit enormously from a tummy tuck.

SIGNS OF FACIAL AGEING

Fillers in Dubai | 22 January 2019

Knowing the signs of facial ageing can help you determine whether the time is right to consider skin rejuventation treatments. When I talk to my patients about facial ageing, I describe what happens in three major phases. In your 30’s, wrinkles and age spots may begin to appear. Your skin may seem less radiant and may show signs of discoloration. In your 40’s, the skin’s collagen and elastin support network begins to break down. Lines and wrinkles become more prominent as your skin becomes dryer. The blood flow begins to slow down, leaving your skin with less of a blush. Once in your 50’s and older, new cell production decreases. Your skin retains less water, which increases the wrinkle formation. At the same time, the underlying fat cells in your face shrink and your excess skin begins to sag.

Ageing gracefully doesn’t mean what it used to. It’s easier than ever to look better with modern skin rejuvenation methods! There are many new ways to quickly and easily improve your appearance without needing surgery or down time. New mini-procedures and lunchtime treatments can let you reverse the effects of facial ageing gracefully, but not look that way. Men and women can choose from a variety of non-surgical procedures for skin rejuvenation. These procedures were designed to reverse, improve or erase the earliest signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines and sun-damaged skin. Some of them are referred to as “lunchtime treatments” because they take very little time to perform and do not have any recovery period.
