Working with Tumescent Anesthesia
When you are looking to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important for you to understand the risks behind your treatment. Even a minor procedure can be risky if you are not in a healthy physical condition. At our clinic, we work closely with our patients to ensure that our treatments can be performed safely and effectively.
Dr. Alvarez performs his surgical procedures with Tumescent anesthesia. Tumescent cosmetic surgery is considered by many cosmetic surgeons and patients to be the safest and most effective form of cosmetic surgery. The use of larger amounts of local anesthetic not only reduces pain after surgery, but also reduces bleeding, swelling, and skin irregularities and makes the entire procedure run more smoothly.
Everyone wants a flat stomach. Unfortunately, many people struggle with achieving this look. Sometimes, a healthy diet and regular fitness regimen just aren't enough to help you accomplish your goals.
For those who have gone through pregnancy, extreme weight loss, or weight gain, losing fat from your stomach and midsection area can be more difficult than it ever was before. With an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck procedure, your surgeon will remove excess fat and skin from your affected area. In most cases, we also restore weakened or separated muscles to create an abdominal profile that is smooth and firm.
How does the procedure work?
While every patient is different, most tummy tucks follow the same process. For a mini tuck, a single incision is made underneath your bikini line. Full tucks call for a higher incision, around the navel. Through this incision, fat is sucked out and muscles are repaired by suturing. The skin is tightened, and any excess skin is cut away from your body.
Most surgeries take between one to six hours to complete. During recovery, you can expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Results will hold up as long as you maintain a healthy diet and regular fitness plan.
Liposuction contours and removes fat deposits from areas of the body that don't change with diet and exercise. The most popular form of liposuction and the most common cosmetic procedure in the U.S. is tumescent liposuction, which is more effective, safer, less painful and has a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction. It is performed as an outpatient procedure and does not require general anesthesia. The local anesthetic injected into the fatty tissue lasts for about 24 hours following surgery. This greatly minimizes post-operative pain. Once this wears off, most patients experience some discomfort that is usually managed with Tylenol. Most of the swelling goes down in a few days. Although you will see improvement within one to two weeks, it takes at least three to four months, and in some cases as long as six months, to see the treatment's full benefit.
Fat Transfer (Also known as fat grafting or fat injection)
A fat grafting procedure transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks. This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results.
Every year, thousands of people undergo successful fat grafting to fill in contour irregularities. The purpose of fat grafting is to augment or fill in volume-deficient areas. Fat transfer is a noninvasive method for achieving natural, long lasting and safe results.
Buttock augmentation with fat grafting: Many people who desire a fuller, more rounded buttock will opt for a “Brazilian butt lift,” which uses fat transfer to provide a more curvaceous buttock without the use of an implant. Liposuction is commonly used to both sculpt the surrounding area and collect the autologous fat to be injected.
It is our goal is to help you achieve the most beautiful and natural-looking results, as well as to make your surgical experience as easy and comfortable as possible.
