Ask a female plastic surgeon what she knows for sure and she may tell you that from to kindergarten, humans change in astounding ways. We learn more during those early years than we do at any other time. Our faces and bodies change at rapid rates. In fact, the only other time when our faces and bodies change significantly, giving us a true natural makeover is during our middle and late adult years. In a way, it’s like we become kids again as we age.
If you’re like many women and men, there are probably one or more areas on your face or body that you’re not in love with. These areas may have been gnawing at you, sticking out like a sore thumb, for years.
For many people, efforts to correct or sculpt these areas has come in the form of hours of exercise, strict dieting regimens, girdles and facial pins. Fortunately, the process of sculpting your face and/or body into a firmer, fuller more shapely contour has become easier.
Some image altering procedures a female plastic surgeon uses are invasive. These procedures include traditional or full tummy tucks, breast augmentation, surgical facelifts and liposuction. Other procedures performed by a board certified female plastic surgeon are non invasive. Examples of non-invasive plastic surgery procedures include non-invasive facelifts, lipsonix, ultherapy, abdominoplasty, and laser multi-layer facelifts.
According to the female plastic surgeon at New Look New Life plastic surgery , with ultherapy treatments, you can have the skin in your neck and face areas tightened and toned. Because the procedure is non-invasive, recovery time is minimal. There are also generally less risks and side effects associated with the procedure compared to invasive surgeries.
Liposonix is used by a female plastic surgeon to remove stubborn fat from your stomach and abdomen areas. Fat stored in your thigh and back areas can also be removed with a liposonix procedure. Some people who have received the procedure have lost an entire dress size.
Prior to receiving invasive or non invasive facial or body contouring work, schedule a consultation with two or more plastic surgeons. Ask about the actual procedures, the process of preparing for the surgery and how much time the surgeon expects it to take you to recover fully after having the procedure performed.
Some invasive surgeries take up to a week or longer to recover from. For example, if you work with a female plastic surgeon to receive a mini tummy tuck, also referred to as a abdominoplasty, she may advise you to stay home from work for three to five days. While you’re home, focus on relaxing and getting plenty of rest so your body can recover quickly.
Other advice a plastic surgeon might give you would be to stop smoking several weeks before surgery. The day of surgery, you might be instructed to wear loose fitting clothes to keep your clothes from rubbing against incisions or putting too much pressure against the part of your body you had surgery on. As a tip, if you have questions that your plastic surgeon doesn’t automatically discuss with you, raise the questions during initial consultation sessions you have with your surgeon.
