Women Considering a Mummy Makeover:

“I just want my body back…I’ve had my kids and now I want something just for me, to get my body back to something like the way it was…I maybe considering Breast Implants or a Tummy Tuck ?”

This is the most common phrase I hear from women seeking breast augmentation surgery, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck sydney) surgery, or both together.  Typically these women have had children and see the lasting effects on their bodies every day; loss of volume and shape in their breasts and residual excess skin and tissue on their tummy that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.  So what are their Cosmetic Surgery options?

Breast Augmentation Surgery:

Breast Augmentation surgery involves the insertion of breast implants into the breasts to increase and/or restore their size. Many women seek breast augmentation surgery to enhance their overall body shape, contours and proportions.  For women who have breast fed their children or lost weight, sometimes a breast lift will be combined with breast augmentation in order to address sagginess or droop of the breasts.

Usually women seeking breast augmentation seek to achieve larger breasts, but retain a natural appearance. Most women don’t want to look “implanted”. A natural look can be easily achieved with the right advice from your Cosmetic Surgeon as to what size, style, shape, projection and volume suits your shape and body type and will achieve the look you are seeking.

Abdominoplasty Surgery (Tummy tuck):

Many women who have had children are unhappy with the residual excess skin and tissue at the base of their tummy that is unresponsive to diet and exercise. (This is also common in both men and women who have achieved significant weight loss). Tummy tuck surgery involves the excision of the excess skin and tissue on the tummy, often with tightening of the underlying tummy muscles, to achieve a smooth and defined tummy. This should in no way be considered a means of weight loss; your Cosmetic Surgeon will advise you to be within your optimal weight range prior to surgery to achieve the best and most lasting result. Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with Liposuction or Liposculpture, where fat is removed through incisions will a metal tube and suction device, in order to achieve a smoother, contoured and natural appearance.

Performing Breast Augmentation and Abdominoplasty surgery (Tummy Tuck Sydney) at the same time is appropriate for some women. The priority of the Cosmetic Surgeon is your safety and minimising your surgical risks; this may mean that the surgeries should be performed on separate occasions if by performing them together your operating time is at a length of operating time that poses increased risk to your safety. This is obviously something that you should discuss in consultation with your Cosmetic Surgeon.

Cosmetic Surgery offers options to women who have reached a point in their life where they want to do something for themselves, take steps to restore and rejuvenate their body’s appearance and re-gain a sense of self confidence. For an appointment for Breast Implants and/or Tummy Tuck Sydney today, contact an accredited and experienced  Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Bobby Kumar on 1300 676 003 or 0430 491 006.

Tummy Tuck otherwise Known as an Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck is surgically known as Abdominoplasty surgery. The surgery is performed for Cosmetic and legitimate medical and surgical reasons. In Sydney and Port Macquarie . Women following child birth and if they have had a caesarian section can be left with an overhanging lower abdomen. These patients decide to have Tummy Tuck surgery to address the hanging “Pannus” of redundant skin and soft tissues.This is the case for those patients that have succeeded in losing a significant amount of weight. Consequently these patients are left with a large redundant apron of skin and subcutaneous fat and tissues which in themselves are a problem; causing skin fungal infections, aesthetically undesirable lower torso and the patient is left with having to hide the redundant mound in clothing.

Tummy Tuck Surgery or Abdominoplasty at Bare Aesthetics Clinics

Who makes the best candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck or abdominoplasty surgery is becoming a popular form of Cosmetic Surgery for men and women. It is considered by patients for a variety of reasons. The most obvious reasons are that patients have a significant redundancy of skin and tissues of the upper and lower abdomen.

The cosmetic considerations are based on patients who may have had previous surgery and or delivered babies via caesarian section and they are left with a flap or “Pannus” of skin and tissues which typically overhang their clothing. These patients often find it unsightly and difficult to find the right clothing to hide the overhanging skin and tissues. They are also reluctant to go to the beach during summertime for fear of embarrassment when wearing a bathing suit. Read More »

Cosmetic Surgery for Men at Bareaesthetics Clinics in Sydney and Port Macquarie

The Top Cosmetic Surgery procedures for Men

Typically cosmetic surgery is normally associated with women having procedures such as Breast Augmentation, breast reductions and liposuction. If we discuss men having cosmetic surgery we normally think about well known male actors and celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone, Michael Jackson and Mickey Rourke. These men are not great examples of natural and aesthetic cosmetic surgery results. However; men do have great Cosmetic surgery results it is just that we hear about the extreme and ridiculous results performed on the infamous celebrities.

Statistics released in March 2011 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) demonstrate that many more men are now becoming more conscious about their appearances and maintaining their appearances that they are now considering some form of Cosmetic surgery. The statistics revealed that the overall increase in cosmetic procedures in men increased by 2% in 2010 when compared to the previous year. Some procedures in particular like Facelift surgery rose by 14% and Liposuction increased by 7% in 2010.

The ASPS statistics for 2010 show that men underwent an increased number of Surgical and minimally invasive procedures; the increase in surgical procedures grew faster than the traditional minimally invasive treatments.

The increase in men having cosmetic surgery may be related to a number of factors; such as an increase in the general fashion and cosmetic industry and therefore an increase in the participation of men in requiring cosmeceuticals and that their requirements do not seem to be unusual or the domain of women. Also with the changes in workplace perceptions and socially men may feel the need to have a rejuvenated and youthful appearance as well as being fit and healthy. Men and women have shifted the age for when they are choosing to have children. As such men may feel that they are now ready, mature and financially capable enough to make the decision to have Cosmetic plastic Surgery.

Interestingly once the minimally invasive procedures such as Antiwrinkle injections or dermal fillers were popular with men. It is apparent that as men age, so do the tissues and the addition of gravity means that the tissues sag. Consequently a much more comprehensive surgical procedure is required and is necessary to lift and rejuvenate the body to show any significant improvement.

Tummy Tucks in Sydney & Port Macquarie

More and more patients in Adelaide, Sydney & Port Macquarie are seeking Tummy Tuck surgery (known medically as an Abdominoplasty) to address their concerns regarding their tummy area. Tummy tuck surgery is available to women and men and usually involves removing excess skin and tissue on the abdomen to achieve a flatter, tighter and more toned tummy. Many people feel self conscious about the tummy area and feel restricted in the type of clothes they can wear. Quite often patients are women who after pregnancy have a residual area or pocket of tissue and fat in the lower abdomen that does not respond to diet and exercise. Other common reasons for seeking Abdominoplasty surgery are patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and have residual excess skin and tissue.

Typically patients enquiring about tummy tucks in Sydney & Port Macquarie want an estimate of how much the procedure will cost. It is important to understand that there are different types of tummy tucks according to the size of the area, the amount of tissue and fat that requires removal and whether the underlying muscle also requires tightening. The complexity of the tummy tuck procedure has a bearing on the time taken to perform the procedure; this then also affects the costs involved, for example a longer operation incurs more theatre and anaesthetic costs. Tummy tuck surgery can take anywhere from 2.5 hours to 4.5 hours depending on the individual procedure and is usually performed under a general anaesthetic.

If you are considering tummy tuck surgery, the best course of action is to have a consultation with a Cosmetic Surgeon who will discuss with you your concerns, goals and your surgical options. The Cosmetic Surgeon will also discuss the incision site (usually placed in the lower abdomen so it can be concealed by underwear) and whether you may require a complimentary procedure, such as liposuction/liposculpture, to fine tune your contours and shape. The Cosmetic Surgeon will provide you with the costs for your procedure, including surgical fees, theatre/hospital fees and anaesthetic fees.

Tummy tuck surgery can be done as a day only surgery, without the need to stay overnight in hospital. Patients are typically up and walking within hours of surgery, though care must be taken not to stand up too straight and stretch or put pressure on the incision site. Patients typically describe feeling like they’ve done a thousand sit ups and quite tight across the abdomen. Usually over the counter pain relief is sufficient and may only be needed for the first couple of days after Abdominoplasty.Most patients choose to take a couple of weeks off work. It is important to avoid any exercise or activity (e.g. lifting) that places the Incision area under any stress. Following surgery patients are required to wear a compression garment for anywhere up to 3 months; this promotes healing and adhering of the tissues for an optimal result.

It is important that tummy tuck surgery not be seen as a weight loss solution. Tummy tuck surgery is most successful when you are close to your optimal and stable weight and want to address residual skin or tissue that is not responsive to diet and exercise. The Cosmetic Surgeon is likely to recommend you lose excess weight prior to surgery with an appropriate diet and exercise plan.

As with any type of surgery, tummy tuck surgery comes with risks (such as infection, bleeding or swelling, skin and tissue loss and scarring) that need to be weighed against the benefits of surgery. The Cosmetic Surgeon will discuss these with you in detail so you can make an informed decision as to whether tummy tuck surgery is right for you.

Breast Lift with Breast Implants

A woman’s breasts often define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size, and appearance, breasts further help to define a woman’s individualism. The breasts undergo changes in response to factors such as genetics, aging, pregnancy and breast feeding, weight gain or loss, and hormonal fluctuations. All of these factors can cause the breast size and shape to change. These changes can be dissatisfying and can make women feel as if they are losing some of their femininity and youthful vitality.

Breast augmentation alone cannot restore the shape of the breasts for those women who have significantly “droopy” breasts. For those women who would like to have a breast enlargement to increase the size of their breasts as well as restore a firm, more upright position, a breast augmentation in combination with a breast lift can improve body contours and revitalize their appearance.

Breast Implants offered in Sydney, Adelaide and Port Macquarie: Saline, Silicone or “Furry Brazilian”

When a woman chooses to pursue Breast Augmentation surgery, it is a significant and personal decision. But this is just the start of many decisions to be made. First and most importantly is choosing the right Cosmetic surgeon. Then there are decisions about size, shape and projection, in addition to what type of Implant is best for you.

Your Cosmetic Surgeon is best placed to work with you in selecting the type of breast Implant that best meets your needs and suits your body shape and proportion. Prior to your initial consultation, it helps to do your research on what options may be available regarding Breast Implants and prepare questions for your Cosmetic surgeon.

Saline vs Silicone Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants consist of an outer silicone shell filled with the saline solution, typically filled in surgery once the Implant shell has been placed in the breast. Some types of saline Breast Implants allow for the volume to be adjusted after surgery through a valve in the Implant. The advantage of inserting an empty Implant and filling during surgery is that the surgeon can use a smaller incision when inserting only the shell. A disadvantage of saline Breast Implants is that they feel more like a bag of water than natural breast tissue.

Silicone Breast Implants consist of an outer silicone shell filled with cohesive silicone gel. The newer generations of silicone Implants use a silicone gel that is designed to stay intact in the case of the outer shell rupturing. The main advantage of silicone Breast Implants and the reason they are more commonly chosen by women is their natural look and feel. Read More »
