Losing Fat in the Midsection

A recent article discussed some of the new trends in plastic surgery advancements in the world of cosmetic surgery. When it comes to losing fat around the midsection, methods that use freezing or heating with ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells are becoming increasingly popular. Cool sculpting, which uses this technology, is well reviewed but is not a solution if you have more than a small amount of fat to get rid of. Excess fat needs to be removed with liposuction, and even more significant areas may need a tummy tuck, or both plastic surgery procedures performed simultaneously.


New product for Tummy Tuck procedure

For those who need a tummy tuck, a new product has arrived to make the process easier. In the past, patients who had a tummy tuck would need drains inserted to release the fluid, that would fill between the large spaces of muscle and overlying tissue. These drains were kept on you for one to two weeks after surgery. TissuGlu is a medical adhesive that fills this space and eliminates the need for drains completely. An added benefit to TissuGlu is that scars may be less noticeable. Tummy tucks are a painful procedure, and the recovery can take about two weeks. Another new product, Exparel, is a numbing injection that can make the recovery time less painful.


Breast Enlargement

When it comes to breast augmentation, alternative ways to place implants such as the TUBA method (Transumbilical Breast Augmentation) often arise and then quickly dissipate. TUBA resulted in higher rates of deflations than traditional incision methods and is no longer widely performed. Currently, the latest news in breast augmentation isn’t a new method but a new implant. Allergan, one of the largest implant manufacturers, has released two new firmer implants. These implants are an excellent option for patients with tight breast tissue that does not expand. Firmer implants also decrease the likelihood of rippling which is common in thin women as well as those with little of their breast tissue.

A new radio frequency treatment that heats the tissue and stimulates collagen production may help. Forma Plus is like the famous Thermage, but the added benefit is that the temperature can be controlled down to the degree for a better result and more effectiveness.


Buttocks Lift
