Gaining in popularity is something called the vertical lift, which involves a scar around the areola and then straight down the breast, eliminating the underneath scar. Proponents think that the shape is good, that the breast maintains a lot of projection over time without bottoming out, and that the underneath scar is avoided. I believe that many of these breasts look overly projecting to my taste, and that bottoming out can be minimized with the inverted T style pattern. I also feel that the underneath scar is rarely seen, and that the scars that are seen - around the areola and going straight down, seem relatively more visible with this technique since it requires some bunching up of the skin during closure. Understand that some of the best surgeons in the world argue with one another about this issue at meetings all the time!
“Adding a breast implant to the procedure sometimes allows the surgeon to shorten or even eliminate scarring, since the implant will then take up some of the slack caused by the breasts’ sagging,” says Fort Worth, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein. “Some breast augmentation patients may even be candidates for a radiofrequency treatment called BodyTite, which can provide a slight lift without requiring additional surgery.”
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.
In addition to a breast lift, many women also consider having other procedures performed at the same time to enhance the overall result. For example, a “mommy makeover” is a combination of different surgical procedures reserved for women who have been pregnant and want to look like they did before the pregnancy. This may include a tummy tuck, liposuction surgery and breast enlargement or breast reduction. There is also a cost savings of having multiple procedures done at the same time.
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.
It’s a popular method because the incision enables doctors to reshape breast tissue and insert implants either above or below the muscle, leaving only a small scar along the top of the areola. However, it also has its downsides: only a minimal amount of lift can be achieved, not all sizes and types of implants will fit, and the majority of women desire a bigger boost than this method can deliver.

We offer a personalized consultation to answer your questions about breast lift scars and determine if you are a good candidate. Please contact our Bergen County office for an appointment.

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.


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.
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.
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.  
You may notice an improved body contour immediately (for instance, if you have your saddlebags suctioned), but your results will be disguised initially by swelling. Swelling should improve dramatically after six weeks and continue to go down over the next six months. If you think you’ll need more lipo to get the result you want, wait at least six months for the swelling to subside, then evaluate the situation with your surgeon. Just keep in mind that you’ll continue healing and seeing better results for up to a year.

Fat. We all have it, and we all try our hardest to get rid of it. Even while watching what you eat and exercising regularly, those last few pounds still won’t come off for many of us. Dr. Fouda Neel performs liposuction in Montreal and Riyadh to reduce these areas of unwanted fat for men and women looking to enhance their body contours beyond what diet and exercise can achieve.
During your private consultation, Dr. Fouda Neel will review your medical history, talk with you about the improvements you hope to attain, and create a treatment plan personalized to you. If you are also bothered by excess loose skin, you may be a good candidate for BodyTite, a less invasive form of liposuction that also incorporates skin tightening.
Thank you for your question. All surgical procedures leave scars. Breast lift, or mastopexy is a surgical procedure used to raise and reshape sagging breasts.  Factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight change, aging and gravity produce changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts.  As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and begin to sag. If your breasts are small or have lost volume after pregnancy, breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both firmness and size. There are a variety of different surgical techniques used for the reshaping and lifting of the female breast. I recommend that you make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

Some surgeons will quote a single global liposuction cost that includes almost every possible surgery-related expense in one lump sum. Typically a global liposuction price is the sum of the surgical fees, plus the non-surgical fee, plus the anesthesiologist’s fee (if general anesthesia is used). A global liposuction cost is commonly used when the liposuction surgery is done in the surgeon’s office or surgery center. When a prospective patient telephones a surgeon’s office to inquire about the cost of liposuction, be certain to determine if the quote is for a global fee or merely the surgical fee. An office employee who answers the telephone might only give information about the surgeon’s fee and not mention other important items such as the anesthesiologist’s fee, and operating room fee.

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

Liposuction is a very popular procedure during which a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through a tiny incision and is utilized to break up and suction fat cells from the body. Since its introduction several decades ago, the procedure has been improved with numerous innovations. Tumescent liposuction has become standard, and reduces bruising, swelling, and bleeding, and facilitates improved results. It involves infusing the treatment area with a large volume of a solution of lidocaine and epinephrine. This causes fat cells to become swollen and firm (tumescent), which makes them easier to break apart and remove. The solution also anesthetizes the area and temporarily shrinks blood vessels, limiting bleeding during the surgery. The tumescent technique enhances your comfort both during and after the procedure and reduces bruising and swelling.
Most board certified plastic surgeons will give discounts if more than one area is addressed at the same time. Be careful when comparing pricing between surgeons. Some surgeons will only give you their fee with the surgery center and anesthesiologist billing you separately. Other surgeons will give you a package price which will include their fee, the surgery center and anesthesiologists fee.
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.
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.

Thankfully, there’s a slew of solutions that have been proven to help with scarring, even completely removing the visual effect. One of the first solutions that may be offered is a steroid injection into the area, which helps with the discomfort and redness of scarring. Cortisone creams are another option that may help to reduce the size of the blemish. Targeted cryotherapy, similar to the type of therapy used to remove warts, may also reduce scarring by freezing the tissue away.
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.
Although the removed fat cells are unlikely to grow back, body fat has been shown to return to preliposuction levels within a year after the surgery, particularly returning to the abdominal area. Researchers believe the body compensates for the rapid fat loss by putting on more fat. In a trial of 34 women published in the September 2012 edition of the journal “Obesity,” the cosmetic benefits of liposuction were lost after one year. A later study, however, suggested that recurrence of belly fat can be avoided by exercise.

As you might imagine, liposuction costs vary depending on body part, individual person, and clinic. Every person is different, and there's no such thing as "one-size-fits-all" liposuction. In addition, the prices clinics charge are usually based on factors such as the specific procedures they offer, the equipment they use, the clinic's accreditation, the skill of the surgical staff, and the surgeon's level of experience.

Liposuction is extremely popular among Montreal, Longueuil, Pointe Claire, and other Quebec patients because of its proven ability to get rid of unwanted, excess adipose tissue in areas such as the back, thighs, upper arms, cheeks, and hips. However, liposuction treatments, although highly effective, do not guarantee that the fat will not return. Here are ... read more
Liposuction is often combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, as part of a mommy makeover. The fat that’s removed can also be purified and transferred to the face, butt, breasts, or other areas to restore lost volume or create more fullness. You’re a good candidate for liposuction if you have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or below. If you’re looking for a weight-loss solution or cellulite treatment, liposuction isn’t your best bet.
