The active agent which is injected is called phosphatidylcholine (PPC). PPC is produced naturally by the body. It is a component of all the cells in the body and is highly concentrated in liver cells, fat cells and the covering of nerve cells. The PPC used for fat dissolving injections is harvested from the soy plant. PPC injected into fat deposits has a detergent like effect, causing fat cells to rupture and dissolve. Fat released by the cell is metabolized by the liver and excreted by the body. There is also tightening of the skin…
The initial 24 to 48 hours after your breast lift or tummy tuck surgery is when you will feel the majority of pain and discomfort. You will experience swelling and tenderness during your recovery period. After about a week of healing you should be able to resume light activities.
Subglandular placement may make your surgery and recovery shorter, may be less painful, and may be easier to access for reoperation compared to submuscular placement. However, subglandular placement may result in more palpable implants (more likely to “feel” the implants through the breast), more capsular contracture and more difficult imaging of the breast with mammography.
In 1995, Dr. Patricia Rittes, a dermatologist in Brazil, began treating patients with injections to dissolve stubborn fat deposits beneath the skin. In 2001 she published her first scientific paper detailing her management of bulging fat deposits beneath the eyes. In 2003, Dr. Franz Hasengschwandtner, an Austrian physician specializing in diet and nutritional medicine, began similar treatments but with a wider range of applications and formed Network-lipolysis. This network of physicians was taught his techniques and developed a standardized drug for injection and a standardized protocol to use the drug for fat deposits all over…
We receive many questions about placement of breast implants from our patients. When a patient has breast augmentation surgery, the breast implant can either be placed partially under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the breast gland (subglandular). See if breast augmentation surgery is right for you.
With summer here, many women want to know if they can tan if they have had breast augmentation surgery. Tanning at salons or sunbathing will not hurt your breast implant, but it may make your scars unfavourable. You should cover your scars with sunscreen should you choose to tan, until your scars have healed.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr. Niessen is able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more cup sizes. Breast enhancement is usually done to enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small, to balance a difference in breast size or to fill in breast volume loss due to pregnancy or breast-feeding.
Injection lipolysis offers a new, safe and non invasive treatment for fat deposits all over the body. It can be used to address problem localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is especially attractive to patients who are reluctant to have liposuction.
In planning for tummy tuck surgery, smokers should plan to quit four weeks prior to surgery and not resume for four weeks after surgery. It is important to avoid exposure to the sun before your surgery, especially to your abdomen. Also, do not go on a stringent diet prior to surgery, as both these factors may inhibit your ability to heal.
After having had an abdomioplasty, you may expect to go back to work within two weeks, depending on the level of activity required for your job. During the first three to six months your incision will be pink and raised. It may take up to one year before your scars flatten and fade.
