Frequently Asked Question
Cosmetic surgery is a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body.
Mini tummy tucks are more limited in their degree of correction and typically involve shorter incisions, and therefore, shorter scars. This approach is best for individuals who do not require muscle repair and who have excess skin limited to the lower abdomen. We typically recommend this option for a person whose upper abdomen (the area above the belly button) is fine and needs no improvement.
Many of our patients combine procedures such as breast augmentation with a tummy tuck to create more comprehensive results. It is also commonly performed with other skin tightening procedures after massive weight loss.
Once the transplanted hair grows out the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.
The most important decision in restoring your hair is the physician you choose. The skill, talent, and experience of hair restoration physicians vary widely, as do the end results. Who you choose will determine how natural and full your new hair will be for the rest of your life.
Because fat is lighter than water, a large volume of fat does not account for as much weight as one might think. But that would make a significant difference in contour and in measurements, yet the weight removed would be less.
Almost all areas where there is excess fat. Face (to assist in facelifts), goose neck or double chin, upper arms, breasts (men and women), abdomen (upper and lower), flanks (love handles), hips, thighs (inner and outer), knees, calves and ankles.
Another limitation is judging the exact amount of fat to remove. If too little fat is removed, the bulge will remain (though will obviously be smaller). If too much fat is taken, a permanent dent will remain. It is fairly simple to go back and take a little more fat away, but much harder to put fat back in. For this reason I usually err on the side of caution and would much rather leave a little too much fat in than take too much away.
