INFECTION AND INFLAMMATION AFTER LIPOSUCTION

September 1st, 2016 admin

As with any other surgical procedure, there are risks of complications after liposuction. infection-post-operatingTherefore, it is important for you to know the types of potential complications that may occur.Before you decide to go under the knife, make sure to evaluate the risks and benefits of the procedure. The most common complications after liposuction are infection and inflammation at the surgical site.

Remember, undergoing liposuction ought to be your personal decision. Do not do it because someone else wants it, and make sure not to take inspiration from friends who had liposuction.Also, steer clear of doctors who try to sell you their liposuction procedures. Instead, focus on your personal aspirations, goals, and self-esteem.

You should think about liposuction only if you feel uncomfortable with your appearance and your looks are negatively affecting your self-confidence. Remember, sometimes the risks and complications of this procedure outweigh the benefits; therefore, it is always best to make an informed and judicious decision.Let’s discuss the potential risks of infection and inflammation after liposuction.

Infection

Infections have the potential to occur after any surgery, and liposuction is no exception. Your plastic surgeon may give you an antibiotic before and after liposuction to prevent infection. It is very important for you to keep the surgical site clean and to take the medications on time. This can prevent infection in the wound to some degree, but there is still a chance of it.

Infections can sometimes be extremely dangerous and life-threatening. For example, serious infections like necrotizing fasciitis involve bacteria that feed on tissues. Then there is the risk of toxic shock syndrome, which is very serious and mostly linked with surgeries. To treat serious infections, chances are your surgeon will prescribe you antibiotics..

The factors that increase the risk of post-liposuction infections include:

  • Insufficient cleaning
  • Lack of disinfectant
  • Lack of sterilization
  • Use of contaminated surgical tools
  • Unhygienic healthcare providers
  • Lack of usage of aseptic methods
  • Lack of infection control protocols

Swelling and Inflammation

Though swelling is a normal medical condition that often follows any surgical procedure, at times it can be severe and trigger further complications. In the case of liposuction, swelling may continue for a few weeks or even months after the procedure. Right after liposuction, you may experience soreness at the surgical site. That is absolutely normal and can be extreme for the first few days after the surgery, but will gradually diminish over four to eight weeks.

Inflammation after liposuction is a result of injury to the surrounding tissue caused by the liposuction cannula. Moreover, blood from the surgical site and pieces of fat that were dislodged during liposuction stay under the skin, triggering inflammation, which is mostly accompanied by pain.

To help you overcome inflammation and soreness, your plastic surgeon will recommend a corset. The corset is effective in decreasing the swelling and improving your contours.

How the fat is processed before injecting into the buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift

June 22nd, 2016 admin

When the Brazilian buttock augmentation is performed, fat is removed with liposuction, and this fat needs to be collected in sterile canisters prior to injection. The literature shows different ways shutterstock_124289614of harvesting the fat. Some surgeons will irrigate the fat, others use a centrifuge, etc. The bottom line is that the less you do to the fat, the better the outcomes.

When I perform this procedure, once the fat is collected in the sterile canisters, it is first decanted; in other words, most of the fluid will settle at the bottom of the canister, and this fluid can be removed by opening a valve in the canister. However, this is not enough. I have been able to determine that after decanting you still have about 40-50% of fluid mixed with the fat, and this is not good. If I inject this fat thinking that most of the fluid is gone, your results will be decreased significantly in the first two to three weeks as the body reabsorbs the fluid and the swelling goes down.

So, what do I do? Well, the best way is to use a strainer. This strainer is covered with a specialized membrane that allows the fluid to be removed while the fat stays on the top. This produces fat that is completely concentrated and pure, without any fluid that would jeopardize your outcome. This fat is then placed in syringes and injected into the areas of deficiency. One of the most critical parts of performing this procedure is technique; the technique of the surgeon is going to determine the long-term results. Anybody can harvest fat, anybody can put fat in the buttocks, but if the surgeon does not follow a strict protocol, it will jeopardize the results and ultimately you are not going to be a happy patient. Understanding the process of fat processing is crucial for a successful surgery; the best way of doing it is by processing the fat in such a way that only highly concentrated fat lobules are injected in the area that requires enhancement.

PAIN AFTER BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION

June 14th, 2016 admin

As soon as the anesthetic wears off after the buttock augmentation surgery is performed, the patient will be able to communicate shutterstock_269447099with the medical staff. Many patients say they have felt tired and a bit confused after the surgery, but it gets better in less than twenty minutes when they become fully aware. There is no pain or other unpleasant reaction after the surgery; the patient will feel sleepy for a few hours until the anesthetic is completely out of his or her system.

After this period is over, the patient will feel tension in the area where the surgery was performed that will last 24 to 48 hours. It is possible also to feel some pain during this time, but the intensity will be reduced and easily controlled by medication.

It is recommended that the patient have someone to pick him or her up from the clinic, and the medical staff will provide a list of prescribed medications as well as a list of instructions to follow once they get back home. The first days at home can be hard due to the difficulty moving around, all the bandages, and the elastic shorts. During these first days at home, the recommendation is to monitor the patient’s general health and report anything disturbing to the doctor or the clinic.

Complications after this surgery are extremely rare to nonexistent, but there are other effects that are completely normal and can occur in some cases. For example, when changing the bandages, bleeding can occur. After the buttock augmentation procedure, the area will be swollen, and some inflammation might occur. The swelling can disappear in a few weeks, but it is just as normal to take a few months.

The recovery period after the buttock augmentation procedure might take longer and be a little more painful than for other surgeries, due to the daily demand on the area while sitting down (even using a cushion), walking, and even standing. The patient will need to sleep on his or her stomach or side to avoid unnecessary pain and pressure on the buttocks. It is also normal for the swelling and bruises to make their way up toward the abdominal area or down the hips; this is all a part of the recovery process, and they will disappear in a few weeks in most cases.

Pain medication will be prescribed, and direct pressure on the buttocks should be avoided for about twelve weeks, so prepare to use a pillow every time you want to sit down. If you take care to respect the doctor

Just as with any other type of surgery, there is a healing process that will affect the appearance of your body. Aside from swelling and bruises, you might also have tissue trauma or fat necrosis. It is important to consult your doctor if you feel that the pain is difficult to manage or you notice any changes that the medical staff didn

CAN YOU FEEL BUTT IMPLANTS WHEN SITTING DOWN?

June 10th, 2016 admin

Most women desire to have beautiful, rounded, and large bottoms. Some lucky women get naturally attractive buttocks, shutterstock_279345794but for those who do not, buttock implants can be a great option. While this procedure is an effective way to add shape and volume to your butt, post-operative care is the key to the sustainability of your butt implants.

Your surgeon may tell you to avoid sitting down for a few weeks after buttock implant surgery. When you are finally allowed to sit down, it may feel different from what you used to experience with your natural buttocks. No doubt, adjusting to your new buttocks will take time.

Whether you can feel the butt implants depends on the location and size of the incisions and how well your plastic surgeon has performed the surgery. It is common for butt implant patients to experience intermittent or continuous pain and heaviness in the buttocks for the first two months.

When sitting down after butt implants, you will feel like you are sitting on a filling. You will probably experience this feeling in the upper part of your buttocks, even though this is not the pressure-enduring area when you sit down. Buttock implants are normally located higher in the gluteal pocket. When you sit down, you are not actually sitting on the butt implant itself.

However, as time passes, your body and skin make gradual adjustments, and you will likely forget about any strange feelings three months after the procedure; your buttocks will be largely back to normal and feel soft and natural.

Your plastic surgeon

It is important to understand, however, that the butt implant recovery period comes with inconveniences. You will be told to take precautionary measures like not sitting down for a few weeks or days. You should abide by your surgeon

In order to avoid discomfort when sitting down for the first time after butt implants, make sure to place a soft cushion beneath your bottom. You may feel as if you are sitting on padding or a wallet. If you are uncomfortable with the feeling, lie down on your stomach. There are also some medications your surgeon may prescribe to minimize the pain and discomfort when sitting down. Make certain to take your medications on time and according to your surgeon

Feeling the butt implants when sitting down also differs from one patient to another. Some people may feel heaviness in their buttocks, while to others it may seem like their buttocks have become harder. Do not fear these feelings, because they will gradually subside. However, if you still feel uncomfortable while sitting down four months after buttock implants, you should consult with your surgeon.

A-SHAPE BUTTOCK

June 9th, 2016 admin

Let’s talk about the first buttock shape:  the A-shaped buttock. shutterstock_415086820 So, what is the A-shaped buttock? In my opinion, this is the shape that I like the most and the sexiest and most feminine of all the buttock shapes.  If you already have an A-shape, that means it will be easy to get a good result with your Brazilian buttock augmentation.  When fat is injected into the lower part of the buttocks, I do not have to worry about changing the proportion of the top of the buttock to the bottom of the buttock; it is mainly to fill out buttocks that already have a nice foundation.

If you already have A-shaped buttocks, you are going to have a good result. There is no need to change the proportions or create an illusion of having a wider buttock at the bottom as compared to the upper part of the buttock. Doing liposuction on the lower back combined with fat injection to expand the skin envelope of the buttock will easily recreate the A shape. If you have an A shape prior to surgery, you are one of the lucky ones that will require less effort to accomplish an amazing result.
