The holidays and all the celebratory feasting are behind us, which means we need to get in shape and make 2013 a positive year. Lots of women work out daily and watch their weight, but after several pregnancies find themselves at a loss. They complain that their breasts are small and saggy. They complain that no matter how many crunches they do, their tummies are loose. So when do you know if your a candidate for surgery or if you really can work out those inches.

Who is a good candidate for breast enhancement surgery?
Women request breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. In addition to increasing the size of small breasts, silicone or saline breast implants can also help correct asymmetrical breasts or restore volume lost as a result of childbirth, breastfeeding, or significant weight loss. The doctors at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group recognize that no two patients are alike, so they work closely with each woman to educate her about all options, including implant type, placement, incision site, and size. During the consultation, all aspects of the surgery are thoroughly discussed, including risks and recovery expectations.

During the initial consultation, many women discover that they will also need a breast lift or additional procedure to obtain the look they want. This is especially true for women whose breasts droop or sag because of pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Whatever the case, Dr. Layke and Dr. Danielpour are committed to giving their breast enhancement patients a customized result that they can enjoy for years to come.

Who is a good candidate for liposuction or “liposculpture”?
One of the most important aspects of successful liposuction is confirming that your skin tone is elastic enough that it will spring back and shrink after removal of the fat from liposuction. In some cases especially in the lower abdomen, skin may be so stretched out that liposuction will reduce the fat bulge but will leave loose skin that is equally undesirable as the fatty bulge. Your surgeon can certainly answer this question during your evaluation.

With so many to choose from, how do I know which liposuction technique is right for me?
Liposuction techniques have advanced to allow for quicker recovery and of course even greater safety. Although there are many new techniques such as laser liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction, the ultimate result depends upon the good judgment of the surgeon and the use of small tubes or cannulas to remove the fat in a precise and predictable manner.

If liposuction is something you may be considering contact Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group to learn more about this “tried and true” procedure to permanently and reliably get rid of unwanted fatty bulges.
