Considering Laser Liposuction

Going for liposuction surgery is now not something you need to hide or be ashamed of, for our image-obsessed trend nowadays approves of anything you do that will help you look and feel better about yourself. Sure, liposuction may just be a plastic surgical procedure that won’t give the same healthy benefits as eating right and exercising properly, but as long as you’re willing to pay upwards of a thousand dollars and bear some pain and bleeding the few days after the surgery, you can end up having a slimmer body and a higher self-esteem. And with the popular new techniques available for liposuction, you can even encounter fewer risks while the fat is removed and better results after the surgery!

Laser liposuction is one of the most sought after new liposuction procedures. This special kind of liposuction surgery involves the aid of laser technology, which is beamed at fatty tissues to liquefy them and make them easier to suck out. It is also said that the laser lights stimulate collagen growth on the skin for a smoother result, and that the blood vessels will be less engorged with blood due to the effect of the lasers, so you will get less bruising as compared to the other liposuction techniques.

However, there are also other studies that show the effects of laser provide little or no benefit during liposuction. Laser liposuction is definitely more expensive than other more traditional methods due to the extra expense of using laser technology, and some critics say that the higher price is not worth it and that you may even be paying more money just to get a higher risk of side effects, like blisters and burns, that can occur due to the laser. How much does liposuction cost? Laser liposuction can cost a maximum of around six thousand dollars on part of the body, while standard liposuction is estimated around four thousand dollars. So is getting laser liposuction worth it, or will you be better off saving more money and risking fewer side effects with standard liposuction instead?

On the Web MD site, a study is reported of people who received both laser liposuction and standard liposuction on different sides of their abdomen, and the conclusion was that people with loose skin may benefit more from laser liposuction such as SmartLipo, for the laser devices used can actually increase skin tightening after recovery from the surgery.

Liposuction procedures differ all the time; techniques like water-assisted or Vaser liposuction may be better for you than standard or laser. To get the best results, always visit an experienced surgeon who is properly licensed. Good plastic surgeons can also evaluate which liposuction technique will suit your body best, and provide for you before and after pictures of their former patients so you can be more assured of the quality of their work.

Endobarriers – for weight loss and diabetic control?

Gastric bands have been widely reported on in the press. Some of the results seem amazing. However any form or surgery carries risks and if there was a non invasive way to provide the same result as well as offering the potential to control or indeed to cure Type 2 Diabetes then surely this would be a good idea? Well a  new treatment, using an Endobarrier, is being trialled and some professionals are getting very excited about the prospects. Let’s see what it involves.

Obesity and class 2 diabetes are closely linked. No one knows for sure which causes which or indeed what the full links between the two are. What we do know for sure is that both are a serious and growing threat to our health.Professionals will measure how overweight you are by calculating your body mass index or BMI. If your BMI is over 30 then you are clinically obese.It has been suggested that there are as many as 525 million obese adults worldwide. The figures for diabetes are also quite overwhelming with over 250 million people living with the disease.

The endobarrier offers a non surgical solution to both these health problems. It is basically a plastic tube which is anchored to the duodenal intestine, immediately below your stomach, and it will regulate what food substances re absorbed into your body.It will stop fats, sugars and salts whilst allowing essential vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed. By preventing food from coming into contact with the bowel it can also stop certain hormones  and nerve signals from being released by the intestine.This then reduces the resistance to insulin which lowers the threat of diabetes.

The endobarrier is inserted through the mouth whislt the patient is under general anaesthetic. It should take about 20 minutes and there is no invasive surgery. It will sit inside the patient for 12 months  at the end of which it is quickly removed under a mild local anaesthetic.
It is important to realise that during and after the 12 months there is a suggested diet which as well as eating more healthily also encourages smaller portions and lots of fruit and vegetables. Exercise is also encouraged.

Who is suited for the procedure?


Anyone who Has type 2 diabetesIs and is between 18 and 60.Obese patients ( BMI over 30 and below 50)are also suited to the procedure.Your blood glucose levels are important and anyone showing over 7.5% but under 10.5% for their HbA1c should qualify. Another indicator of suitability would be a patient taking either oral glycemics or less than 150 units per day.

What might stop the endobarrier being fitted?


Anyone who
Has stomach ulcers (peptic ulcers)Has bleeding disorders (eg people with haemophilia or on anti-arthritis drugs)Has had major digestive surgery in the past

Are there any side effects?
Minor but you do get slight bloating and occassionally abdominal pains.

Let us all hope that this new procedure really does offer a good way forward for the treatment and control of these two major health problems.

Introduction To Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to alter the shape and size of a woman’s breasts and this procedure is also known as breast implant, mammoplasty enlargement, breast enlargement. The breast enlargement is mainly done for primary reconstruction, primary augmentation, revision reconstruction, and revision augmentation. In primary construction, the breast tissue that has been removed during trauma or cancer treatment is replaced. In primary breast augmentation before and after, the breast size is increased for some cosmetic reasons.

In revision reconstruction, revision surgery is performed to improve the condition of the original reconstruction surgery. The surgical procedure takes about two to four hours and there are different types of procedures. The procedures vary with respect to implant material, incision type, and implant placement. The different incision types are inframammary, periareolar, transaxillary, transumbilical, and transabdominoplasty.

Inframammary is the most commonly used incision type and here incision is made below the breast. This type is more preferred for silicone implants and this technique leaves thicker and visible scars. In periareolar, the incision is done on the areolate border and the scars are less visible. This method causes many problems and most common problem is trouble with breast feeding as the nerves and milk ducts are cut during the process. Transaxillary incision is made near the armpit and this method leaves no scars.

Transumbilical is the least used technique where incision is placed in the dissection tunnels and navels. This method does not show any visible scars, but carrying out this procedure without any error is more difficult. Transabdominoplasty is similar to transumbilical. The two major types of implants are saline and silicone gel. The saline shells are prepared from silicone elastomer and after completing the procedure the implants are completely filled with salt water. During the procedure, the saline implants are empty, and thus leaves no scars. Saline implants may cause some problems such as wrinkling and rippling. Silicone breast implants are more suitable for a woman with more breast tissue.

The silicone gel implants are best described in terms of five generations. The first generation silicone-gel was of tear drop shaped and was filled viscous, thick gel. The second generation shells were thinner and came with less cohesive gels. Due to some difficulty in this implant, polyurethane foam coating was done on the shell. This type of implant was later discontinued due to carcinogenic problems. The third and fourth generation represented more advancement in the manufacturing techniques. In these generations, the implants shell was coated with elastomer and gel was thicker and more cohesive to avoid cosmetic problems.

The fifth generation marks the improvement of the efficacy and safety of the implants with fewer problems. The different implant placements are subglandular, subfascial, subpectoral, and submuscular. After the procedure, the patients will be able to resume their normal activity in a week. Women who have undergone this surgery are advised to restrict exercises and any strong physical activity for at least six weeks. The scars begin to fade after few months of surgery. Breast implants does not last longer and therefore, a woman might need a revision or repair surgery.
