Reach Your 2019 Goals with Liposuction

Have you started crafting your 2019 goals? For many, the first few weeks of January are often a time for reflection as well as looking ahead to goals for the remainder of the year. While some may choose to pursue professional goals, others are looking to 2019 to be the year they finally achieve the perfectly sculpted body of their dreams. If that sounds like a familiar goal for you, what better way to reach this long-term goal than with liposuction?

Why Liposuction Should Be Part of Your Sculpting Strategy

There’s more than one reason why liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Consider just these few:

Honing the Perfect Body Takes Work

Unless you’re blessed with perfect genes and time to spend hours upon hours in the gym, chances are you have some stubborn fat pockets across your body. Furthermore, following vigorous workout routine and strict diet doesn’t always mean total fat removal. Unlike other cells, fat cells are never truly eliminated from the body unless physically removed. Instead, excess fat cells shrink, expand, and multiply in relation to weight loss and weight gain. As a result, in order to truly achieve a toned, sculpted physique, you’ll need a treatment that removes this unwanted fat.

While there are numerous body sculpting procedures available, liposuction is the only minimally invasive, long-lasting treatment that removes fat cells permanently while providing near immediate results. For individuals who have worked hard to achieve their best figure through diet and exercise, liposuction is the ideal “final touch.”

Liposuction is Highly Versatile

While many associate liposuction with flatter, more sculpted tummies, the procedure is among the most versatile plastic surgeries currently available. At Tim Sayed MD Plastic Surgery, liposuction has been used by both men and women to target stubborn fat pouches around the stomach, legs, arms, and back. Our San Diego and Newport Beach plastic surgeon has even used liposuction to remove unflattering submental fat, or double chins, leaving patients feeling confident in their appearance from the neck up. So long as patients are healthy enough to undergo surgery and are not using the procedure as a weight loss alternative, nearly all individuals can be eligible for liposuction.

With so many opportunities and treatment areas available, the consultation of every liposuction appointment is very important. During your visit, you’ll work with Dr. Sayed to discuss your treatment goals and identify how liposuction can help you reach those objectives. For patients who are thinking of more extensive, full body makeovers, our team will work with you to ensure your liposuction treatment works with the rest of your goals.

The Plastic Surgery Procedure Yields Long-Lasting Results

Not all body-sculpting procedures are the same. Although there are many non-surgical solutions available for fat removal, achieving lasting results in a timely fashion can be difficult. Liposuction’s minimally invasive nature and use of a thin cannula make the treatment a much less invasive option compared to traditional surgery and yields better, longer lasting results than non-surgical treatments. When you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise before and after surgery, many can enjoy long-lasting results.

Breast Implant Settling: What to Expect and When?

When thinking about the steps involved in breast augmentation, most patients are familiar with consultation, the pre-op appointments, and recovery. Often, the settling step goes overlooked, leaving patients confused as to when they can expect to enjoy their final results.

Breast Implant Settling: The Next Step in Recovery

Settling, sometimes known as “drop and fluff”, is the process that follows recovery post-implant surgery. During your operation, the implant is placed into position. In the first few weeks following treatment, patients may notice or feel that their breasts look much higher than they had initially intended. This is because while the implant has been placed, the muscle and tissue around the breast react slightly to having a new implant placed. This creates additional pressure behind the muscle, creating extra volume at the top part of the breast. Over time, swelling decreases and the muscle and tissue gradually accommodate the new implant by creating a small “pocket” around it.

Once it has expanded enough, your silicone or saline implant gently drops or settles into its final position in the breast. At this point, patients achieve the gentle teardrop shape that is so characteristic to the look of natural breasts.

What Factors Impact Drop and Fluff?

While nearly every patient will experience some form of drop and fluff, certain factors can influence how and when you can expect your implants to finally settle. These include:

Implant placement

Most patients today have their implants placed in a submuscular manner, or beneath the muscle rather than over the muscle. In the long-run, this creates a more natural appearance and helps ensure that over time the augmentation remains as realistic looking as possible. However, augmentations conducted below the muscle tissue can also require a longer settling period, this can be up to three months post recovery.

Implant Type

When it comes to implants, size and shape matter. Smooth, rounded implants generally settle about the same way and can be inverted without compromising the overall appearance of the breast. However, textured teardrop shaped implants must be placed in a specific manner to attain their ideal shape. As a result, it is precisely placed during surgery and monitored post-operation to ensure it settles correctly.

What to Expect When Your Breasts are Settling

One of the biggest concerns patients have in the first few days following surgery is that their breasts are not positioned where they wanted them. Trust us – we understand how frustrating and underwhelming that can seem. However, it’s important to keep in mind that breast augmentation surgery is not a simple, one size fits all procedure. Not only is every patient going to have a uniquely planned treatment strategy, they’re also going to experience a very personalized recovery. For some, full recovery including settling can take under four weeks while others may not finish the drop and fluff process until they’re three months post-surgery. Give your body the patience and time it deserves to heal properly.

The Most Requested Liposuction Treatment Areas

For many of our patients, liposuction has created an important boost in their self-confidence by spot reducing fat in the areas that make them most self-conscious. While the abdomen is the most common area treated by liposuction, not all patients store excess fat in their bellies. In our practice, we find these to be the most requested liposuction treatment areas:

The Abdomen

For many, the midsection is where the body stores excess fat and where additional fat cells first develop. While it can be easy to shrink fat cells, once new ones have developed it can be almost impossible to achieve the completely fat stomach or washboard abs of your dreams.

Perhaps the most popular and best-known treatment areas, liposuction of the abdomen and love handles are always top requested procedures for men and women at Dr. Sayed’s practice. Depending on where within the midsection fat accumulates, patients may have liposuction completed on the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles or across the entire midsection. Likewise, abdominal liposuction has often been included as part of larger body contouring strategies like mommy makeovers to help new mothers finish reaching pre-baby goals.

The Upper Body

The chest, back, and arms are other areas where fat can quickly accumulate and be difficult to erase. As a result, liposuction across the upper body is another popular option chosen by many of our patients. For men, targeting the chest and back with liposuction can recontour areas that may have lost definition over the years due to aging. For women, removing “bra rolls” and “bat wings” can greatly restore an individual’s confidence in their appearance and the way their clothes fit.

The Lower Half

While commonly associated with the innovative procedure behind smooth tummies and taut chests, liposuction has also become the go-to treatment for smoothing skin below the waist. Even individuals with minor weight fluctuations can quickly find themselves left with stubborn pockets of cellulite around the hips, inner and outer thighs, and even below the abdomen. Even with vigorous exercise and a restrictive diet, it can be very difficult to eliminate these unsightly bumps, leaving men and women feeling self-conscious about their appearance in shorts and other warm weather clothing.

At Dr. Sayed’s office, liposuction is one of the most effective treatments available for recontouring these delicate and often highly visible areas. As the treatment fully eliminates unwanted fat cells without having to spend time in surgery.

Why Choose Fall for Your Facelift?

Now that the summer season is finally ending, many are preparing to enjoy a quick break in traveling for vacation or playing host for visiting friends and family members before the winter holiday season gets underway. While both are filled with excellent memories, chances are they’re keeping you busy and leave you with little time to focus on your own health and wellbeing. If you’ve been putting facelift surgery on hold until you had the time to prepare and recover, fall may be the perfect season!

Schedule, Schedule, Schedule

If you’re going to invest the time and financial resources into a facelift surgery, you’ll want to visit the best surgeon you can. However, consultations and appointment slots can quickly book up as the weather warms and as patients get ready to see family and friends for the holidays. Rather than stress yourself out trying to schedule in any appointment you can with any surgeon during the busy season, use the fall lull to your advantage. Take the time you need to research top surgeons in your area and schedule consultations to meet with them one-on-one. Having the luxury of time will make a difference in your relationship with your surgeon and your final results.

Restful Recovery

Like any other plastic surgery, recovery plays an important role in the final results of your facelift process. Whereas getting enough uninterrupted rest can be challenging during the summer and winter, the fall season is fairly relaxed in terms of hectic holiday planning and travel. As facelifts can require up to a week of recovery at home, now is the excellent opportunity to take time off from work and sequester yourself into focusing on recovery. Busy professionals don’t need to worry about competing with colleagues in taking personal time off while parents have school to keep kids out of the house for the bulk of the day. Both scenarios make it more feasible to make important follow-up appointments as well as focus on healing.

Enjoy the Holidays

Planning on visiting family this holiday season? Why not show off a more youthful, invigorated appearance? Depending on the extent of your treatment, facelift recovery can be completed in as little as two to three weeks. With that in mind, it is possible for patients to start the treatment process and complete initial recovery by Thanksgiving. While there can be some minor swelling and bruising, the treatment results will be healed enough to be noticeable.

Ready to Rejuvenate? Schedule a Consultation

Have you been waiting for the perfect time to schedule your cosmetic surgery? With the fall just starting, now is the time to take the plunge and schedule your facelift consultation with San Diego surgeon, Dr. Sayed. During your visit, we’ll walk you through an estimated timeline and develop a strategy that maximizes your time and leaves you with the results you’ve been waiting for.

How a Breast Reduction Can Improve Your Health and Comfort

In recent years, breast reduction surgery has become a popular option for women frustrated with heavy breasts. In addition to helping improve the self-confidence of these patients, new studies also suggest that the procedure offers health benefits.

Breast Reduction and Your Health

Simply put, larger breasts weigh a lot. Every increase in cup size adds about a pound to a woman’s weight. Additionally, larger breasts are denser, heavier, and ultimately add to the upper half of the body. This, in turn, puts immense pressure on the back and spine, affecting nerve endings in this area; it is not uncommon for a woman with extremely large breasts to also experience pain in her fingers and arms.

The increased strain on the shoulders and neck caused by large breasts also puts a good amount of stress on the neck, leading to severe headaches and neck aches. As a result, these women are more likely to suffer from poor posture, in which the shoulders start to roll forward to alleviate the additional weight. Poor posture on its own is the source of many health complications, including impacting rib cage size and lung position as well as compromising the spine’s position and increasing the risk of scoliosis later in life. Extreme breast size can even compromise sleep, making it difficult for women to enjoy a full night’s rest without the stress of additional weight pulling chest muscles out of position.

With breast reduction, the patient will find that a heavy weight has been lifted off her shoulders – quite literally. The ability to sit up or stand straight for long periods of time and sleep comfortably does wonders for an individual’s mental and physical wellbeing.

Restoring Comfort

Larger breasts don’t just affect posture and back pain. Chafing is a common side effect for many and can occur when the breasts rub on the upper abdomen. Women with larger breasts may also find wearing traditional bras uncomfortable as the straps dig into the shoulders, creating deep welts when worn over extended periods of time. Sports bras are especially problematic for many of these women. Most athletic bras are extremely tight to keep breasts close to the chest during exercises. For women with larger breasts, multiple bras are often necessary to make exercise tolerable. At the end of the day, the discomfort tied to trying to get active keeps many from pursuing physical activity, contributing to unhealthy weight gain and poor health.

Something that is often overlooked that also contributes to the discomfort associated with larger breasts is how they can change the fit of clothing and the role that plays into a woman’s self-confidence. Large breasts often create the appearance of being much heavier, requiring the patient to buy a size up that may not fit the rest of her body. Disproportionate breasts can also lead a woman to feel self-conscious about her appearance and insecure or uncomfortable with unwanted attention. For many, these factors can undermine the individual’s self-confidence, leading to anxiety and even depression.

Breast reduction surgery offers the patient the opportunity to take control of her appearance in ways not traditionally accessible with diet and exercise. By giving her the opportunity to reduce and recontour disproportionately large breasts to a size that better matches the rest her body, she may find a new sense of freedom in being able to choose clothes without worrying about appearing overtly sexual or frumpy. For many, even fitting into a normal bra is a new and wonderful advantage.

Brazilian Butt Lift Safety: How to Ensure Beautiful Results Safely

In recent years, Brazilian butt lifts have grown dramatically in their popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of glutoplasties performed jumped 10% between 2016 to 2017, and current projections suggest the procedure will continue to grow. For patients, the opportunity to remove stubborn fat cells from one part of the body to the derriere can help them achieve two goals with only one trip to the operating room. However, a warning from the same Board suggests that this procedure carries a much higher mortality rate than other procedures.

What is the Risk Associated with Brazilian Butt Lift?

Pulmonary fat embolisms (PFEs) or fatal fat embolisms occur when the pulmonary veins are blocked due to fat particles. Usually, the result of widespread trauma such as a broken leg, these obstructions prevent blood from traveling to the heart for oxygenation and can travel through the veins to the heart, blocking the arteries. During a Brazilian butt lift, fatal fat embolisms are caused when the cannula delivering transplanted fat cells injures a vein or directly injects the adipose tissue into the vein. This can happen if a surgeon injects too deeply or accidentally nicks a vein.

Stay Safe During Your Butt Lift with These Tips

In addition to the risk of fatal fat embolism, Brazilian butt lifts also present other risks associated with surgery. Anesthesia risks, poor healing, and infection can all compromise your health and results. With these complications in mind, it’s important to be picky about who you visit for your surgery.

When choosing your Brazilian butt lift plastic surgeon, be sure to look for the following:

Board Certification

Only board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Sayed have undergone the extensive training required to successfully perform any cosmetic procedure. For high-risk procedures like butt lifts, having the expertise of a peer-reviewed, highly qualified professional is especially important. These individuals are highly trained to identify risks and treat them before they can compromise your surgical results and life.

Do Your Research

There is nothing wrong with vetting multiple plastic surgeons during the initial stages of your surgical journey. It is an incredibly important step in verifying that you have all the information necessary to choose the right procedure and practice. While looking for your plastic surgeon, be sure to ask about the risks, what you can expect from the surgery and recovery, and about the benefits of the butt lift. A good plastic surgeon will help you understand what realistic results will look like for your unique scenario.

Choose an Accredited Facility

While the Brazilian butt lifts may be marketed as an easy, minimally invasive way of achieving great curves, the procedure is still surgery that requires anesthesia. Choosing a facility that has a strong reputation for excellence and has the support staff in case something goes wrong will provide you with the peace of mind that you’re in safe hands at every step of the treatment process.

Tips to Make Your Mommy Makeover a Breeze

As a woman, you already know your body is capable of miracles. You not only carried a baby to term, but you gave birth and even nourished your child with your breast milk.

However, all these amazing feats came with a cost – stretch marks, sagging breasts, and a poochy belly you can’t shake, no matter how much you diet and exercise. But you shouldn’t lose hope: A mommy makeover is the key to restoring your pre-pregnancy form and helping you regain your confidence after having a baby.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is an umbrella term for a combination of cosmetic surgical procedures used to address some of women’s most common post-pregnancy complaints. While the process is highly customizable, it generally encompasses the following:

If desired, Dr. Sayed also offers fat grafting to enhance the buttocks – a procedure called the Brazilian butt lift.

How to Prepare for a Mommy Makeover

The first step in getting ready for a mommy makeover is to get as close to your target weight as possible through diet and exercise. Being in good physical health is essential to successfully recovering from surgery. You should also wait until your hormone levels are back to where they were pre-pregnancy, which usually takes at least half a year after childbirth and breastfeeding.

If you are a smoker, you should also quit before your surgery. Smoking cigarettes causes blood vessels to constrict, which will reduce the amount of oxygen in blood cells and negatively impacts your body’s ability to heal quickly.

The final – and perhaps most crucial – tip in mommy makeover preparation is to arrange for someone to help you around the house during your recovery period. This person could be your spouse, a neighbor, a family member, or a close friend. Successful recovery from a mommy makeover requires you to commit fully to a recovery period of at least two to three weeks. You’ll need someone to help you with daily tasks such as looking after your children, doing laundry, and preparing meals, in addition to medical needs such as keeping your incision sites clean and disinfected. For the best healing, you’ll need to be as stress-free as possible, so make sure whoever you ask to help you is trustworthy and capable.

Things to Know as You Recover From a Mommy Makeover

First, you’ll need to plan at least two weeks of downtime for your mommy makeover recovery. If your OB-GYN put you on bed rest at some point during your pregnancy, you’ll already be familiar with this concept. However, that doesn’t mean you should be immobile all day, every day. Getting up and walking around – in moderation – can help with your recovery process. No, you shouldn’t expect to be able to do an intense workout, but make a point of standing up and moving around for a few minutes each day.

Before your surgery, it’s best to prepare your recovery room with plenty of comfortable pillows, soft blankets, and anything you need to keep yourself entertained – whether that’s curating the perfect playlist, stocking up your Netflix queue, or downloading plenty of books or magazines to your e-reader. As a mom, you’re probably not used to having much “me time,” but since you’re on doctor’s orders to take it easy, you might as well seize the opportunity.

Put those super-mom planning skills to work in the week or so ahead of your surgery and make time to meal prep, laundry, cleaning, ironing, and other chores you won’t be able to do while you recover. You’ll be glad you did – and so will your designated caretaker.

Also, be prepared to be on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster during your recovery period. Surgery itself can be an intense experience, and combined with the effects of the pain medication, you should expect some mood swings – often, your emotions will fluctuate from elation to sadness minute by minute. Make sure you and your family are ready for this side effect.

Breast Lift + Augmentation: Why You Might Consider this Duo

Aging, pregnancy, and genetics all play a role in changing the shape of your breasts over the course of your lifetime. If you are worried about breasts that have begun to sag or flatten, you may be weighing the benefits of a breast lift procedure to restore your youthful profile. But while a breast lift is ideal for repositioning the breasts higher on the chest, it will not be able to address volume loss, which is why many women are opting to combine a breast lift with a breast augmentation.

What You Need to Know About a Breast Lift and Augmentation

A breast lift as a standalone procedure may not provide the results you are looking for if your breasts have lost significant volume, which happens to many women during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The skin that stretches to provide milk for a baby can fail to bounce back to its pre-pregnancy position, leading to breasts that droop lower on the chest.

Though a breast lift will remove excess skin and move the breasts and nipple-areola complex to a perkier position, it may actually decrease your breast volume slightly. For many women, combining a breast augmentation with a lift is an ideal choice, because the dual procedure creates both an increased breast volume and an enhanced breast shape. Getting breast implants at the same time as your breast lift surgery should not significantly add to your recovery time, and the results can provide a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.

There are two significant advantages to combining a breast augmentation with a lift in the same procedure: It saves money and will also help you avoid having to undergo two recovery processes from two separate surgeries.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Breast Lift + Augmentation?

In general, the same characteristics that make a woman a good candidate for a breast lift also qualify her to get a breast augmentation. These include:

  • Overall good health
  • Being a nonsmoker
  • Have no masses in the breasts after an exam
  • Having a positive support network of family and friends
  • Realistic expectations for the results of the surgery

The best way to determine whether you need a breast lift is a simple check called the “pencil test.” To perform this test, place a pencil in the crease beneath one of your breasts. If the pencil rolls away, you still have sufficient perkiness in your breasts. However, if your breast holds the pencil in place, you are a likely candidate for a breast lift surgery.

Recovering From a Breast Lift With Augmentation

For the first few days after your surgery, you can expect some tenderness, bruising, and swelling across your chest, and you may experience mild discomfort as well. These side effects are normal. To promote swifter healing, you will need to wear a specially designed surgical support bra that is sized and measured to fit you.

The length of your recovery time will depend on several factors, including how large your breast implants are. Women who choose bigger implants can expect more tissue stretching. If your job is not physically demanding, you may be able to return to work within a week or two. Women who have a more strenuous job may need to take a longer time off work. It’s also best to abstain from exercising for two weeks and ease back into your workouts after that.

Everything You Need to Know About the Ideal Implant®

Our San Diego plastic surgeon strives to provide innovative treatments that have a strong track record of success, especially when it comes to breast implants. The Ideal Implant® is one such treatment that is generating interest among patients and plastic surgeons. Here’s everything you need to know about this type of implants.

What is the Ideal Implant®?

Most patients are familiar with traditional silicone and saline breast implants. While both have their advantages, each also has shortcomings associated with the treatment and result. For example, saline-filled implants can be adjusted as they are filled during surgery, and problems such as rupture are easier to quickly detect. However, these implants tend to look firm and slightly unnatural. In contrast, silicone breast implants create a natural, teardrop shape, but detecting ruptures in the implant can be difficult, increasing the risk of leaks into surrounding tissue.

The Ideal Implant® offers a unique, hybrid breast implant for women who want the beautiful shape of a silicone implant and the security of a saline implant. This innovative approach is thanks in part to the unique inner structure of the implant. Rather than having a single yet sturdy bag, the Ideal Implant® has two nested compartments that are filled with saline. These layers are then surrounded by a unique baffle shell that restricts movement of the saline in the outer layer, allowing the implant to take on the natural appearance reminiscent of a silicone breast.

With this unique internal structure, the Ideal Implant® offers patients the figure they desire while providing the peace of mind that their implants are uniquely protected from silent rupture.

Surgery & Cost

Like traditional saline implants, the Ideal Implant® is inserted first then filled with saline. As there are two saline compartments, however, surgery time may be slightly longer than the usual one hour for a traditional breast augmentation. Similarly, Ideal Implants® are somewhat more expensive than conventional implants. However, many of the patients who have visited our San Diego office for this treatment have found the results they achieve with this breast implant option make it a worthwhile investment.

Recovery

Recovery time after Ideal Implant® treatment is not much different from recovery from traditional silicone or saline implant placement. To mitigate post-procedure discomfort, Dr. Sayed may prescribe pain relief medications and will provide you with post-treatment instructions. To make your recovery as easy as possible, we recommend finding a caregiver who can help you during the first week following surgery.

Longevity

While the Ideal Implant® is a relatively recent innovation in breast augmentation, ongoing studies show that the long-term results are promising. The structured design of the implant has been shown to reduce the risk of capsular contraction and silent rupture. Likewise, the multiple barrier approach to encapsulating the saline material and smooth surface has made Ideal Implants® less likely to ripple and distort the skin above the implant, suggesting the treatment may provide greater longevity than traditional saline prosthetics.

Final Looks

The unique structure of this hybrid implant creates a concave, dome-like shape that adapts well to the curves of the patient’s chest. The implant looks incredibly natural, avoiding the awkward height of saline implants and creating a natural point overlooked by a silicone prosthetic. Overall, patients who receive the Ideal Implant® find their new shape looks and feels very natural.

Our goal is to provide our patients with the information they need to make the right decision for their body and wellbeing. We encourage you to contact Dr. Sayed with any questions you may have about the innovative Ideal Implant® or breast augmentation. Together, we’ll create the best solution for you.
