When skin is damaged, the body repairs it by creating new collagen fibers, which gives the healing area a different look and texture: a scar. The “mended” skin will be less flexible than the skin around it, and it may have no hair follicles. The scarred skin might be a different color than surrounding skin and the color will change as healing progresses. This is completely natural.
During the course of a woman’s life, the breasts change in appearance and oftentimes sag. Don’t worry, this is NOT an uncommon condition. In fact, the clinical term for female breasts that sag is called ‘breast ptosis.’ There are many causes of breast ptosis including pregnancy, cigarette smoking, high body mass, gravity and the natural aging process. There are also different degrees of ptosis as shown in the illustration below. Fortunately, breast ptosis can easily be treated with breast lift surgery.
The more complex the procedure, the more it will last; hence, the more expensive it is going to be. If, for example, a patient requests for a 6-inch increase in their measurement, they should be prepared for a lengthier and more difficult procedure. In this case, it might be necessary to combine various procedures to achieve the desired outcome. These might include the combined use of liposuction and autologous fat transfer. For this procedure, the average brazilian butt lift cost for most cases is around $10,000 in the US and about $8,500 in Canada.
Hi there- I think it's important to realize that the appearance you would like to achieve may not require a 6 inch increase in your hips (which I agree would be extraordinary), but might be possible through the change in the relationships between your waist, abdomen, and hips. In a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is often possible to make the buttocks look even more full through the suction and... READ MORE
Liposuction in Montreal is a popular cosmetic procedure for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat throughout the body, but it is also one of the most misunderstood cosmetic procedures available today. In fact, cosmetic surgeons in Montreal and around the world spend a large amount of their time simply correcting the various misconceptions and fallacies ... read more
Most doctors on RealSelf say that a good compression garment is essential to minimize swelling and bruising, help the skin smoothly adhere to the underlying tissue, and speed up healing; but some don’t think it’s necessary. Doctors who recommend compression garments often have patients wear them 24/7 (with a break for showering) for at least two weeks and then gradually reduce the number of hours they need to be worn over a period of three or more weeks. As a bonus, doctors say, compression helps ease discomfort. Follow your doctor’s instructions. Some surgeons recommend lymphatic massage starting at about four weeks post-op, to help drain fluid and bring down swelling. “I don’t suggest self-massage, because you can counteract the surgery,” Dr. Mesa says. “But going to a massage therapist who specializes in post-surgical massage does make the healing process faster and prevent irregularities.”
During breast lift recovery, patients are required to wear a surgical bra for the first few days following surgery. This bra is then replaced with a support bandage or sports bra which is to be worn at all times for several weeks. The sutures are removed from the breasts after a week or two. Patients are normally able to return to work and light activities after about a week. However, during the first week, it is important to avoid bending over or performing any strenuous activities that put unnecessary pressure on the chest. Strenuous activity too soon after surgery can slow healing and cause excess swelling and bleeding.
Dr. Cohen specializes in breast lifts, augmentations, revisions and reductions as well as breast cancer reconstructions. A long time dream of Dr. Cohen’s was to travel to developing countries and provide expert surgical care to those who have no other possible access to medical care. This became a reality in 2007 when she became a founding member and Vice President of ISMS Operation Kids.
Following surgery, Breast Lift scars are red and normally slightly raised, but over 3 – 6 months after surgery they usually fade and flatten out, becoming thin, barely visible lines. For incisions along the areolar border, the scars are usually partially disguised by the skin color contrast (between the dark areola and lighter breast skin) and the uneven surface of the areola.
we use the collagen-inducing fillers called Sculptra. The ploy lactic acid microsphere in the fillers induce the body to make its one collagen at a different area of injection such as face and neck. Lately, we start using this technique for adding volume to body areas such as buttocks. Using hyaluronic acid fillers is not an option here as it will cost a fortune before achieving satisfactory results.
If you are any man (or women) what grab your attention when looking to a lady, The answer would be either Lips, breasts, or buttocks. Having a good proportion of the size and shape is of the Buttock with the rest of the body is an important factor that increases confidence is self-conscious women. If you would like to know more about this procedure, then buckle up!

If you maintain your post-lipo weight, your surgical result should be long-lasting. But if you gain even five pounds, the fat cells in other areas of your body—as well as those that remain in the treated area—will grow larger, possibly diminishing your results. In cases of considerable weight gain, new fat cells can develop all over the body, including in the treated areas, though the area will still look better than if you didn’t have liposuction.

You’re going to feel sore, especially during the first few days after liposuction. You’ll be swollen and bruised, and you’ll need a few days to rest before you head back to work. “I generally recommend that my patients take between three and seven days off after liposuction, depending on how many areas were worked on and your pain tolerance,” says Dr. Samuel Sohn, a plastic surgeon in Henderson, Nevada. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication, though you may find you need only an over-the-counter pain reliever.


Aging brings on a general redistribution of body fat, especially around the middle. For women, childbirth can leave behind a roll of stubborn and unsightly belly fat. And, of course, genetics count for a lot, too. But when it comes to liposuction, not all fat is created equal. Fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise is usually subcutaneous fat, which lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall. The good news is that’s what liposuction is intended to remove. Liposuction can remove pockets of flab, recontour your middle and improve your shape.
Dr. Fouda Neel performs liposuction using IV sedation or general anesthetic, depending on the number of treatment areas and amount of fat being removed. He injects a large volume of tumescent solution into the areas of unwanted superficial fat to control pain and bleeding. This solution also makes the fat firm and easier to remove. Next, he makes tiny incisions near the targeted areas and inserts a hollow, stainless steel tube called a cannula into the fat. He moves the cannula in and out to break up the fat cells and suction them out of the body.

Dr. Kamak (PhD in Pharmacy) is an artist with the threads, he loves to use anywhere in the body, and recently he started to use them for a butt lift, especially if the client does not need extra volume. The PDO threads are made of the same material as the wound stitches. The material is hypoallergic, with no metal residue. The material is biocompatible (it blends with the body tissue) and biodegradable (it dissolve by itself over time). The 360 bi-directional barb threads lift the tissue up against the gravity and hold it in place. Over time, new collagen builds up and replace the threads to provide a natural tether to keep the tissue lifted. It is widely used for a non-surgical facelift and we started to use it in different parts of the body
Any surgery—medical or cosmetic—that requires cutting the skin is going to leave a scar. The scar’s size will depend on the length of the incision that must be made, which will depend on the procedure being performed. When you have a breast lift (also called a mastopexy), you will be left with vertical scars that extend from the bottom of your areola to the inframammary fold, the area where your breast meets your chest.
VASER liposuction, a variation of UAL, evenly disperses the ultrasonic energy with a grooved cannula and probe. The ultrasound energy breaks up the fat and frees it from the surrounding tissue, making fat easier to remove, with less swelling, pain, downtime, or potential for sagging skin than traditional lipo. Dr. George Marosan, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Bellevue, Washington, prefers VASER liposuction in most situations. “Fat comes out more easily with VASER—especially in men, where it’s more fibrous,” Dr. Marosan says. He also points out another great advantage of VASER lipo: While fat that’s liquified by laser lipo isn’t usable, fat broken up by VASER is still viable for transfer to the breasts, butt, or anywhere you want more fullness. “The VASER allows me to sculpt the body, revealing the underlying muscle and bony anatomy. This is an advanced technique that goes way beyond liposuction for fat removal only,” says Dr. Marosan.e
Following surgery, Breast Lift scars are red and normally slightly raised, but over 3 – 6 months after surgery they usually fade and flatten out, becoming thin, barely visible lines.

Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice, If the initial cosmetic results are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).
A Brazilian butt lift is a specific procedure that aims to enhance your natural curves to give you a firm and youthful behind. Otherwise known as a gluteal augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift relies on the transfer of fat from other parts of the body. The fat is removed via tumescent liposuction, cleaned and purified, then re-injected or grafted back onto the buttocks.

We think you shouldn’t have to wait to look better, and more importantly, feel better about yourself. To help our patients afford liposuction, we offer financing options. When you apply, we’ll take a look at your credit history to determine your qualification and financing amount. Upon approval, you can book a date for your procedure. Afterward, you’ll make monthly payments. Financing can help you get where you want to be sooner rather than later.
• WarmSculpting with SculpSure’s diode-laser energy creates heat that kills fat cells during a 25-minute treatment, and multiple areas can be treated at the same time. There are very few side effects and zero downtime. WarmSculpting’s Worth It Rating is almost as high as that of liposuction, and it’s significantly less expensive. Just keep in mind you’ll have to wait up to three months to see your full results, and you might need two or more treatments to reach your goals.
What you need to do is to see several well-recommended surgeons, and listen to their advice. Don't just go with the one who promises you great results with less scars; make sure that everything they say makes sense. If one person suggests that they can get a great shape with substantially less scar than everyone else, be a little suspicious. It may be true, but it may not. Try going to surgery.org to find a good plastic surgeon. Good luck.

Liposuction is needed in order to perform a Brazilian butt lift procedure. If you are simply having liposuction in 1 or 2 areas then local anesthesia can be used. If you are having liposuction done in more than a few areas, you may require the use of a general anesthetic. Brazilian butt lifts require fat transfer and re-injection. Buttock lifts are a surgical procedure that often involve implantation.
Yes, the procedure is very safe and does not require any sedation. The area is infused with lidocaine to block the nerve, so the procedure is painless. However, the area would be very tender for 48 hours. We will tape the area all up to help the thread to lift the tissue up. Clients remove tapes at home, there is not stitches or marks to worries about. The downtime is 48 hours and clients should expect some bruising
Nonsurgical fat reduction treatments can also treat small pockets of fat, but be aware that RealSelf members give these procedures a lower Worth It Rating than they do liposuction. They usually require multiple treatments, over many months, to see a significant improvement—and the results are typically not as dramatic as those you’d get with lipo. After a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure, the body flushes out the damaged fat cells over time. Dr. Marosan also cations that “Patients who undergo nonsurgical fat reduction and then opt for liposuction surgery are more difficult to treat, due to the extensive internal scarring. In my practice, over 50% of my body sculpting patients had previous nonsurgical or surgical fat reduction, with suboptimal or poor results.”

Clinical studies have shown that the average cost per minute of operating room time is around $60. However, the true cost of an operating room depends on the particulars of the operating facility. Some doctors say that they do the Brazilian butt lift surgery in office operating rooms that run at cost, and make the money off the surgery. Others charge less for surgery to make up the difference in the charges of their office operating room while there is a small portion of plastic surgeons that operate in office operating rooms for which they are charged hourly, with no control over the hourly charge.
Cost of Liposuction is an important factor when considering liposuction surgery. However, the quality of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have a happy patient, then the surgeon’s expertise and experience are probably more important than finding the cheapest liposuction surgeon. Liposuction prices are important, but it is not the most important factor to considering lipo surgery. Be careful not to put your body on the “Discount Rack”.

Dr. Cohen and Dr. Winters have been conducting breast lifts for the past 15 years in Bergen County and have found certain things can enhance the experience for everyone involved. Following surgery, we’ve found that it is important to break the recovery process into 4 main areas: pain, scars, bras and exercise. Each section details what you need to know in relation to recovery and things you can do to prepare.

When it comes to breast lifts the most common questions I get each day concern the probability, risk, and/or how we can avoid scarring.  While I would like to be able to offer patients a 'scarless' breast lift, the reality is that breast lifts will always require incisions and to get a great cosmetic result the type or placement of incisions is not dependent upon what I would prefer to do but rather it is dependent upon how much breast sag or ptosis a patient exhibits, the patients balance between skin and breast tissue and where this laxity in skin and tissue exists.
