Enhance Your Body Profile with Cosmetic Surgery

Posted Feb 15 2012 3:01am
If you have batwing arms, are unable to get back to your pre-pregnancy figure or wish your breasts weren’t so big, relax. You can enhance your body profile with cosmetic surgery. This genre of aesthetic improvement has progressed to such an extent that a small incision(s) is enough to get the work done. What’s more, local anesthesia is often seen to be replacing general anesthesia and the shaping of body contours is more precise than before with the use of newer technologies. Hospital stay time is reduced and patients have a faster recovery. What more could you ask for?

Common Body Sculpting Procedures

The following paragraphs give you an introductory description of three effective cosmetic surgery procedures used to improve the appearance of various regions of the body.
  • Smartlipo Liposuction – The Smartlipo™ laser was developed by Cynosure in 2006 and received FDA approval in November of the same year. Smartlipo is the first ever laser aided mode of liposuction to be introduced and is a wide-awake procedure. It is ideal for removal of stubborn fat in people who are not more than 11 kilos overweight. A tube called a cannula of a very small diameter and with a laser fiber in it is introduced through a small incision made in the area from which the fat is to be removed. The back and forth swaying of the cannula causes distribution of laser energy to the fat cells, melting them. The melted fat is then suctioned out. Smartlipo™’s action encourages development of collagen and therefore efficient skin tightening. The Smartlipo Triplex™ is an improvement over the original Smartlipo™ laser.
  • VASER Liposculpture – VASER 2.0 liposuction makes use of superior ultrasound energy to remove pesky fat from the face, chin, abdomen, arms, male or female breasts, back, hips, love handles, buttocks, calves, knees, ankles and thighs. The fat removed can be injected into other body areas that need enhancement. The technique is versatile in that it can treat fibrous, medium or soft tissues and both large and small regions of fat. This is also a wide-awake procedure. Owing to the fact that it only selectively eliminates fat, it is useful to improve the shape of the calf muscles, and create six pack abs.
  • Gluteoplasty – This cosmetic surgery procedure is used to increase the size of flat buttocks and give them an improved shape. A commonly adopted technique of buttock augmentation (gluteoplasty) is the Brazilian butt lift. This is safer and more natural than the introduction of artificial plastic devices into the body. The procedure involves the removal of excess fat from any area(s) of the candidate’s body such as the hips, abdomen, thighs, flanks or lower back. The extracted fat is purified and injected into the gluteal muscle through a puncture made there. Care is taken to inject the fat at different areas and depths of the buttocks so that all the fat cells have sufficient blood supply.
Don’t Be Hasty in Choosing a Physician

Whatever cosmetic surgery you may opt to enhance your body profile, it is important to get it done by the right physician for your own safety and maximum aesthetic benefits. Consult as many physicians as you have to, do as much research as you can, check credentials, read testimonials, and see how the physician seems at your face-to-face meeting with him. Make your final choice only after doing all that.
