Laser Assisted Liposuction - How Can It Be Of Help?

Your genetic background influences where your body fat is stored. In case, your mother or father has fat stored in the abdomen, hips, waist or in the thigh, it is likely for you to develop deposits of fat in the same regions.

Circumstances of Genetic Fat

  • You may have a proper or a balanced BMI (body mass index) but still tend to develop bulges in areas, which are likely to make you look disproportional.
  • You may become obese by development of excess fat accumulation in the lower abdomen region, referred to as pannus. Extra fat may accumulate in your lower back and hips as well, which cannot be lost in spite of taking weight losing measures.

Liposuction to get rid of extra fat:

  • Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that allows you to remove genetic fat or any extra fat from the body, in order to change the body's shape. Liposuction does not remove cellulites and tightening of loose skin cannot be done.
  • Liposuction removes excess fat from the body by suction. Small, narrow tubes with blunt tips known as the cannulae are inserted through incisions in the skin surface. The tubes are moved under the skin to target the suction of fat deposits.

There are several types of liposuction techniques:

  1. Tumescent Liposuction: In this form of liposuction, a wetting solution such as lidocaine with a local anesthetic is injected into the patient before surgery. This causes the shrinking or constriction of blood vessels due to which it allows liposuction to be performed while the patient is under local anaesthesia. Blood loss and post surgical pains are reduced.
  2. Suction Assisted Liposuction: This mode of liposuction also known as SAL is the most primary form of liposuction. It involves drawing out of fat using a vacuum.
  3. Power Assisted Liposuction: This liposuction technique called PAL in short involves the process of SAL with an extra tool for increasing the motion of the cannula. The process is faster.
  4. Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction: This process (UAL) involves the transmission of energy via a specialized hand piece for loosening and melting of fat. A greater volume of fat can be removed via UAL.
  5. VASER: It is a variation of the UAL method where an ultrasonic cannula with grooves helps in energy disruption to improve removal of fat.


Laser Assisted Liposuction:
LAL is a newly developed liposuction technology where a laser works like an ultrasound for disruption and removal of fat cells. This mode is more efficient and involves less trauma. Liposuction is an effective way to remove unwanted, genetic fat from your body, which may be harming your body image. However, liposuction is associated with severe side effects.

How Does Body Contouring Help You To Get Shape?

Not sure if there is anyone who is happy with their image - different people have different complaints. Fat thighs, fat upper arms, too thin legs, sagging breasts, pot belly, the list is just too long. While exercise and diet can be used to achieve overall fitness levels, they cannot produce the body shape that you have in mind (simulating your celebrity body part maybe). Almost all complaints revolve around the excess fat (in most cases) and about the quality of the skin.

However, there are various surgical methods which can produce results that are amazingly quick, effective, and safe.

Body contouring is usually done by removing excess fat deposits and skin from various parts of the body. The skin also gets tightened during the process, also reducing cellulite. While most women complain about thighs and hips, men complain about their stomach area. Some of the common body sculpting procedures includes:

  1. Arm lifts: With age, there is excessive fat accumulation and sagging of the upper arm, which can be corrected by removing excess fat. Contrarily, thin arms can be helped by using biceps implants.
  2. Tummy tucks: The excess skin and fat is removed from the tummy area and the muscles are tightened to produce a firmer look
  3. Thigh lift: Another common area of concern, the tone is improved by removing excess, loose skin.
  4. Pectoral implants: Can be used in men who desire muscular chests.
  5. Butt lifts and butt implants: These are used to alter the shape of the buttocks, either reducing it or firming it up.

In all these body contouring procedures, liposuction is the common technique.

Is it for you? If you are in overall good health with good thick and elastic skin, go for it. However, have realistic expectations by having a detailed discussion with the doctor. It will definitely help in fat removal, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening; however, the key is to set a common goal and work towards it.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

All About Liposuction!

Liposuction can be defined as a surgery, which uses the suction technique to pull out bodily fat from various parts. It is more commonly used for certain body parts like the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck and the surgery is performed on both men and women. 

However, there are certain facts on Liposuction you need to know about: 

  1. Liposuction gives you better skin: It is proven that after a Liposuction surgery, the skin becomes more elastic, smooth and adjusts automatically to its new shape. 
  2. The Process Of Liposuction: Liposuction surgery techniques involve ultrasound and laser for breaking down fatty substances and ultimately removing them. 
  3. Time taken for the results of Liposuction to  show: After a Liposuction surgery, you may not see the results immediately. Compression garments and/or elastic garments are used to get your affected body part to adapt to its new shape. 
  4. The Side Effects Of Liposuction: A Liposuction surgery is mostly safe but in some cases it might just have certain side effects. The most common side effects are: temporary fluid accumulations, short-lived numbness, kidney and heart problems, internal organ damage/puncture, skin irregularities, etc. 

Now that you know how it works, there are some factors that you need to keep in mind before going for a liposuction surgery. They are: 

  1. Checking Your Medical History: The operating doctor should carefully review your medical history before even thinking to start the surgery. This helps to disclose a lot of medical conditions related to the patient that minimize the side effects. 
  2. Checking Your Family's Medical History: The health records of your family should also be reviewed to check for genetic conditions and allergies that might be common amongst the family members.

Brow Lifts: Know Its After Care

A brow lift is also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that corrects flaws in the skin above the eyes. It flattens the lines and wrinkles on the skin, tightens the sagging skin that appears to advance in age and restores youthful skin. More and more people are undergoing the treatment every year with a high rate of success.

Features that can be corrected with brow lifts:

  1. Sagging and horizontal eyebrows that create an expression of exhaustion
  2. Deep horizontal folds on the forehead skin
  3. Excess fatty skin that droops over the eyelids
  4. Frown lines between the eyebrows

Types of brow lift and the respective procedures

  1. Traditional or coronal brow lift: The patient is put under general anesthesia and an incision is made on the forehead, just below the hairline to hide the scar. The excess skin is removed and the necessary skin tissues are lifted and tightened for a smooth appearance. Finally, the incision is stitched up.
  2. Endoscopic brow lift: This surgery is also done under general anesthesia, but a number of tiny incisions are made on the scalp. An endoscope is put in through the incisions so that the area of surgery is seen on a computer screen. Other surgical instruments are used to lift the skin tissue on the forehead, reposition the eyebrows and remove all the extra skin and muscle tissue. Then, the incisions are closed with stitches.
  3. Temporal incision brow lift: This procedure is done with eyelid surgery. It requires larger incisions than those of endoscopic brow lift and these cuts are made just above the temples. Then the tissues above the eyebrows are repositioned, extra tissues between the eyebrows are also removed to flatten the frown lines.

Post-surgical care and recovery

  1. You have to stop smoking and taking anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medication for a few weeks before and after the surgery.
  2. Using a cold compress is recommended in case of post-surgical pain. There may also be prescribed ointments that are applied at the cut.
  3. Your head needs to be kept elevated when lying down for a few days.
  4. You should have gauze and clean towels readily available in case of minor bleeding.
  5. You may also experience slight swelling and bruising on the non-operated areas of the face. The pain and itching sensations experienced during recovery are milder in case of traditional brow lift than in case of endoscopicbrow lift.

Radiofrequency (RF) - Benefits and Side-Effects

As the aging population in our society continues to grow, new technologies and procedures promising a more youthful appearance are continuously sought. The utilization of radiofrequency technology remains a novel method for the treatment of many aesthetic and medical dermatological indications. Innovative applications are constantly identified, expanding treatment options for various patient concerns including aging of the hands, cellulite, non-invasive lipolysis, and postpartum skin laxity. Non-invasive treatments are ideal for busy patients seeking minimal recovery time and so called lunch-time procedures. Furthermore, new developments in treatment devices enhance efficacy while decreasing patient discomfort. 

What is RF treatment? 

Based on the scientific term Radiofrequency (RF), radiofrequency treatment is a non-surgical means of “reshaping” the body and the face from beneath the superficial layer of the skin. This method uses sophisticated devices specifically designed to treat men and women’s most common skin aging problems like wrinkles, excess fatty tissues, or cellulite. The method utilizes radiofrequency waves which is, basically, heat energy meant for tissue remodelling and production of elastin and new collagen. Unlike invasive procedures which primarily affect the most superficial layers of the skin, the resulting heat of the Radiofrequency treatment works mainly on the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis, without affecting the upper layers that are above it such as the epidermis.

As heat is a stimulation that promotes contraction of the underlying tissues, especially at the dermis level, soft tissues found within that area of the body compress, realign, and even produce new collagen, a process that normally takes many months to complete. With healthy new collagen present from the deepest level of the skin, exposing such soft tissues to further Radiofrequency waves help sculpt and tighten those tissues into a more youthful and elastic surface. 

Benefits of RF treatment 

By now, you may already have an idea on how an RF treatment works with regards to aging problems common to both men and women. But how exactly does anyone experiencing treatment via RF benefits from it? Following are the benefits of RF treatment. 

  1. Diminishes or Removes Cellulite 
  2. Reduction of Body Fats 
  3. Tightening of the Skin/Anti-aging 
  4. Post-operative Liposuction Smoothing 
  5. Contour Reshaping 

Risks of RF treatment 

While the discovery of the Radiofrequency treatment is one of the best things to happen for the skincare industry, it is not perfect. In fact, the treatment itself has its own risks which may be experienced by some clients who undergo this type of medical procedure. 

Common side effects of RF treatment include: 

  1. Redness on the skin 
  2. Mild swelling 
  3. Oversensitivity of treated area 
  4. Sinking in of treated area 
  5. Blistering/bruising 

Who can NOT avail RF for skin tightening? 

Basically, anyone can avail of this form of treatment with a few exceptions such as pregnant or breast-feeding mothers and those with serious heart diseases or patients with pacemakers. 

Why should you Choose RF skin rejuvenation

If you are looking for a safe, painless and a non-surgical form of treatment for skin tightening, then Radiofrequency is the way to go. The procedure does not involve surgery, repositioning or cutting. In Radiofrequency treatment, the skin tightens due to the introduction of radio frequency energy into the skin. The process generates moderate electrical currents that cause a contraction of the collagen and reshape it, which results in the tightening of the skin. This treatment effectively tightens the dermis as well as the epidermis, while ensuring that your skin remains undamaged.

Who Can Opt For Tummy Tuck Surgery?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure wherein excess fat and skin are removed to flatten the abdomen. In most of the cases, this surgery is performed to bring back weakened or separated muscles creating a smooth and firm abdomen. When diet and exercise fail to help an individual get the abdominal profile he or she may be looking for, the surgery is performed.

What causes fat and skin buildup around your abdominal region?

Irrespective of the body proportion or body weight you may have, you can still develop an abdomen that sticks out or is loose and flabby. Aging, pregnancy, heredity, changes in weight and surgery are a few of the common causes of the buildup of excess fat and skin around this area.

Who can opt for this surgery?

The procedure is suitable for both men and women.

- If you are a woman who has had several pregnancies, the surgery can help to reduce the extra skin that gets formed as well as tighten your abdominal muscles.

- The procedure can help both men and women who have extra flab to get rid of the fat deposits that get settled around the belly region. Even loose skin can be corrected through this procedure.

Types of tummy tuck

A tummy tuck surgery is of 2 types:

Complete tummy tuck- In this form of tummy tuck, the abdomen is cut from the hipbone to hipbone before the skin, tissue or muscle is contoured as needed. During this surgery, the belly button is moved and drainage tubes are placed under your skin.

Partial tummy tuck - This form of tummy tuck is usually performed on individuals whose fat deposits are present below the belly button. Usually lasting about 2 hours and unlike complete tummy tuck, it does not involve surgically moving the belly button.

Benefits can you expect:

Skin Tightening Tips in Hindi - त्वचा में कसावट लाने का उपाय

जैसे-जैसे हमारी उम्र बढ़ती जाती है, हमारी त्वचा कसावट खोती जाती है। बढ़ती उम्र के निशान किसी के लिए भी चिंता का कारण बन सकते हैं। बढ़ती उम्र को नहीं रोका जा सकता लेकिन इसके असर को जरूर कम किया जा सकता है। उम्र के साथ दिखने वाले इन बदलावों से परेशान ज्यादातर लोग कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी की ओर रुख करने लगते हैं। मगर ये सर्जरी काफी महंगी होती हैं साथ ही इनके साइड इफेक्ट भी होते हैं। कॉस्मेटिक सर्जरी के बजाय यहां कुछ बेहद आसान और सस्ते उपाय हैं जिन्हें अपनाकर त्वचा में कसावट लाई जा सकती है। 

वजह

उपचार से पहले ये जान लेना भी जरूरी है कि किन वजहों से त्वचा में ढीलापन आ जाता है। त्वचा का ढीलापन सबसे पहले चेहरे पर नजर आना शुरू होता है। झुर्रियां और क्रो फीट ये शुरुआती निशान के रूप में दिखते हैं। इसके बाद आपकी त्वचा गालों, नाक, होंठ के आसपास, गर्दन और हाथों पर भी ढीली होने लगती है। इसका मुख्य कारण है त्वचा में कोलेजन निर्माण की गत‌ि का धीमा होना।

ये उपाय हैं बेहद काम के

मालिश- मालिश त्वचा में कसावट लाने का सबसे कारगर उपाय है। मालिश से रक्त संचार बढ़ता है। रोजाना सोने से पहले अपनी त्वचा को सूट करने वाले किसी भी तेल से मालिश करें। इससे चेहरे पर चमक आएगी, झुर्रियां नहीं पड़ेंगी साथ ही कसाव लाने में मदद मिलेगी। इस उपाय की सबसे अच्छी बात ये है कि इसका कोई साइड इफेक्ट नहीं होगा न ही ज्यादा खर्चा आएगा। मालिश के ल‌िए बादाम का तेल, नारियल का तेल, कैस्टर ऑयल और ऑलिव आयल बेहतर विकल्प हो सकते हैं।

  • नारियल का तेल: नारियल का तेल खूबसूरती के लिए वरदान है। इसे आप सर्कुलर मोशन में चेहरे पर लगाएं इससे दाग-धब्बे दूर होंगे, झुर्रियां नहीं पड़ेंगी साथ ही त्वचा में कसाव भी दिखेगा।
  • कैस्टर ऑयल: थोड़े से कैस्‍टर ऑयल में नींबू और लेवेंडर की कुछ बूंदे डाल कर रात में सोते समय त्‍वचा पर मालिश करें। ऐसा कुछ दिनों तक करने से स्किन टाइट हो जाएगी।
  • बादाम का तेल: बादाम तेल से त्वचा में नमी बनाए रखता है। यह स्‍किन को टाइट करता है और स्‍ट्रेच मार्क्स भी दूर रखता है। बादाम के तेल से रोजाना मालिश के बाद आपको त्वचा में साफ फर्क दिखाई देगा। 
  • ऑलिव ऑयल: ऑलिव ऑयल या जैतून के तेल की मालिश त्वचा के लिए बेहद फायदेमंद होती है। इससे रंगत निखरने के साथ त्वचा में झुर्रियां नहीं पड़तीं। इस तेल से मसाज करके त्वचा ढीली नहीं पड़ती।

ये भी आजमाएं: 

योग त्वचा से जुड़ी समस्याओं के लिए बेहद उपयोगी है। इससे बढ़ती उम्र के प्रभाव को भी कम किया जा सकता है। योग से ब्लड सर्कुलेशन बढ़ता है। ये शरीर को मजबूत बनाता है साथ ही कसावट लाता है | 

पानी शरीर से हानिकारक तत्व बाहर निकालता है साथ ही त्वचा में नमी बनाए रखता है। दिनभर जितना ज्यादा-से-ज्यादा हो सके, पानी पिएं | बहुत अच्छे परिणाम के लिए 6 से 8 गिलास पानी पीने की आदत डालें |

खाने का असर आपके पूरे व्यक्तित्व और स्वास्थ्य पर पड़ता है। अपने आहार में विटामिन ए, सी, ई और के शामिल करें। इससे त्‍वचा के अंदर कोलाजेन बनने की प्रक्रिया तेज होती है। मल्टी विटामिन दवाओं के बजाए आहार में मेवे शामिल करें। बादाम, छुआरा, अखरोट, किशमिश, काजू और मखाने को रोजाना स्नैक्स के रूप में शामिल करें।

रोजाना करें क्लींजिंग, टोनिंग और मॉइश्चराइज‌िंग: सोने से पहले कच्चे दूध से चेहरा साफ करें, गुलाब जल लगाएं और किसी अच्छे मॉइश्चराइजर का इस्तेमाल करें। कॉस्मेटिक से परहेज रखना चाहती हैं तो नारियल का तेल लगाकर सोएं।

स्क्रब करें- मृत त्वचा हटाने से चेहरे पर चमक आती है साथ है, बैक्टीरिया भी दूर होते हैं। घरेलू स्क्रब के रूप में आटे के चोकर को दूध में भिगोकर लगाएं। चीनी में मलाई और नींबू मिलाकर स्क्रब के रूप में इस्तेमाल करें।

आजमाएं ये फेसपैक-

  • अंडे का सफ़ेद भाग– 1
  • मुल्तानी मिट्टी – 2 चम्मच
  • शहद – 2 चम्मच
  • ग्लिसरीन – कुछ बूँदें

अंडे के सफेद भाग में 2 चम्मच मुल्तानी मिट्टी, कुछ बूँद ग्लिसरीन और एक चम्मच शहद अच्छे से मिलाएं। अब इसे 20 मिनट तक चेहरे पर लगा लें और फिर गुनगुने पानी से धो लें। मुल्तानी मिट्टी के स्थान पर आटे का भी प्रयोग किया जा सकता है। त्वचा तैलीय होने पर मिश्रण में ग्लिसरीन न मिलाएं।

Contact Dermatitis - 3 Common Types You Must Know!

The condition which occurs on exposure to foreign substances and causes the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed is known as contact dermatitis. It is commonly known as a rash. Although most of the reactions to contact dermatitis are not serious, they can be very irritating till the itching subsides. The causes of contact dermatitis are usually case specific; they vary according to the different types of this disease.

The types of contact dermatitis are:

  1. Allergic contact dermatitis: This condition occurs when an allergic reaction is developed after exposure to foreign substances. The reaction occurs with a release of inflammatory chemicals that causes the skin to become irritated and itchy. If a person has eczema, he or she can suffer from this kind of rash. Causes of allergic contact dermatitis include:
    • Latex gloves
    • Poison Oak
    • Jewellery (gold or nickel)
    • Perfumes and chemicals in skincare and cosmetic products
  2. Irritant contact dermatitis: Contact between the skin and a toxic material causes Irritant contact dermatitis.

Some of the toxic substances that cause this condition include battery acid, drain cleaners, detergents, kerosene, pepper spray and bleach. The physical causes of Irritant contact dermatitis include low humidity from air conditioning, a variety of plants and so on so forth. The condition tends to become more painful, rather than itchy.
  3. Photo-contact dermatitis: This is a very uncommon type of contact dermatitis which is caused due to the exposure of some active ingredients in sunscreen to sunlight. When sunlight is not present, the sensitive chemicals in the substances are not harmful.

Symptoms 
Symptoms of contact dermatitis depend upon the causes of this condition. The symptoms of allergic contact dermatitis are:

  1. Dry or oozing blisters
