Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Candidates

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Candidates

sdgdhdf-300x298 Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Candidates | Northern VirginiaBlepharoplasty, popularly known as eyelid lift, is a relatively minor but delicate plastic surgery procedure because it involves the area around the eyes. The surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy before recommending eyelid surgery.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides blepharoplasty to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other cities and neighborhoods across the horizon in this geographical location.
 

Candidacy

A salient candidate for eyelid surgery will be an adult who is in solid general health, and is unhappy with the tired or old looking eyes caused due to folds and fine lines around the upper or lower lids, under eye bags, or puffiness in the upper lids. People who have a partial vision obstruction due to droopy upper lid skin and fat can also have it corrected with eyelid surgery.
To determine candidacy, the surgeon will review the previous medical records of the patient and ask questions about any underlying health concerns. They will check whether the patient suffers from any ongoing eye condition that may interfere with the surgery. Such patients may first have to get the existing ophthalmic condition treated before they may be considered as a candidate for eyelid lift.
 

Eyelid Characteristics

Blepharoplasty is primarily performed as a cosmetic procedure. Therefore, the surgeon will evaluate the personal cosmetic goals of the patient to see whether an eyelid surgery is the appropriate procedure to meet those goals.
The following characteristics should be considered while determining candidacy:  
 
Tired Looking Eyes
Droopy skin, wrinkles and fine lines around the eyelids can make the eyes appear tired and old. Upper or lower eyelid lift may be recommended to such candidates for eye rejuvenation.
 
Puffiness in the Upper Eyelids
Puffiness in the upper eyelids or under eye bags can be eliminated with blepharoplasty. A skilled surgeon can restore smoother, youthful looking eyelids.
 
Droopy Skin in the Upper or Lower Lids
Wrinkles and folds or loose skin the lower or upper lids can make the upper face look tired. Some patients may also have partial vision obstruction due to heavily droopy eyelids. Blepharoplasty can successfully correct these anomalies.
 

Other Factors

The plastic surgeon will also consider the following factors to determine a patient’s candidacy:
 
Patient’s Age
The patient should ideally be above the age of 18 to be considered for cosmetic eyelid surgery. Most candidates will be above 30 years of age, but if droopy eyelids have occurred due to heredity factors, the candidate may choose an early treatment.
 
Health Status
The surgeon will consider the patient’s physical as well as emotional health before recommending eyelid surgery. Underlying medical issues can increase the risk of surgery or delay the post-operative healing.
 
Realistic Expectations
Any genuine candidate should have a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations. To appreciate the results better, the candidate should know exactly what blepharoplasty can or cannot do for them.

What is Breast Fat Grafting?

Breast Fat Grafting

fat-grafting-to-breasts-6 What is Breast Fat Grafting? | Northern Virginia
Breast augmentation with fat grafting has emerged as an increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure in recent years. The procedure avoids the need for implants, is less invasive than traditional implant surgery, involves reduced downtime, and produces more natural looking results.
Breasts can be sculpted better with fat grafting and the surgeon can slim the curves where the patient does not want them and add curves where she does.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, offers breast fat grafting and other procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities across the horizon.

Candidacy

Women wanting to increase their breast size by one, or possibly two cup sizes, may be good candidates for breast enhancement with grafting plastic surgery. The candidate should have excess fat tissue in donor sites in order to enable its transfer to the breasts.
Patients should, however, be aware that not every woman is a good candidate for fat transfer breast augmentation. If a woman wants a substantial increase in breast size, she should choose breast implants.

Autologous Fat Transfer

Success rate with fat transfer breast augmentation is high because it involves the use of the patient’s body’s own excess fat cells to be transferred to the breasts. The surgeon will apply a gentle liposuction technique to remove excess fat tissue from targeted donor sites, usually abdomen, buttocks or thighs.
The harvested fat is purified and then precisely implanted into the natural breast tissue to create fuller and more proportionate breasts. The procedure involves only small incisions that heal with very little to no scarring. The surgeons at MBody employ advanced techniques for successful harvesting of maximum fatty tissue in order to create the desired level of breast grafting.

How does it Work?

Fat grafting breast augmentation is a less invasive way to create fuller, curvier breasts that look and feel like the patient’s own natural breast tissue. The procedure is performed in two stages: In the first stage, the surgeon will carefully remove excess fat cells from the donor area, using the traditional liposuction technique.
The fat cells are purified and then injected precisely into the natural breast tissue to enhance volume and fullness. It is possible to create curves just at the right places where the patient wants them. This can help create breasts that are not just larger in size, but also more attractively shaped.
If the woman has small, tight breast tissue, an additional stage called breast tissue expansion may be included in the overall procedure. The surgeon may recommend the BRAVA system, which will enable the breast tissue to expand enough to create room for donor fat cells.
The BRAVA system can also improve blood supply to the breast area, reducing the risk of cell necrosis and improving the chances of grafted fat cell survival. Standout and proven plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas.

How much Fat can I lose after CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting

coolsculpting-before-and-after-pictures-300x178 How much Fat can I lose after CoolSculpting? | Northern VirginiaSedentary lifestyles, unbalanced diet, heredity, and other factors may lead to the accumulation of stubborn fat pockets in specific areas of the body.
While liposuction is a popular plastic surgery procedure to get rid of unwanted fat deposits, many people want a non-surgical alternative to restore slimmer contours. CoolSculpting is one of the foremost non-invasive body contouring treatment options in such cases.
A new patient who is considering CoolSculpting will typically have concerns about how much fat loss they may be able to achieve with this non-invasive technique. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will evaluate the candidate’s fat tissue deposits and their unique anatomy to suggest how much fat they may be able to lose with CoolSculpting.
Remarkable and percipient board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide CoolSculpting and various other procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.

Amount of Fat Loss

The amount of fat loss will differ between two patients, depending on the location of the fat deposits, the patient’s propensity to gain or lose fat, the number of treatments received, and the skill of the CoolSculpting treatment provider. Unlike plastic surgery, the fat loss with CoolSculpting will occur gradually because its unique cooling process will freeze the fat to eliminate them.
The frozen fat cells will gradually disintegrate and the fat will get absorbed by the body, leaving behind slimmer contours.
A majority of patients will be able to lose about 20 to 30 percent of fat in the treated sites. Fat reduction may become noticeable within weeks in some patients, but most can expect to achieve optimal fat loss in about three months. Results with CoolSculpting appear more natural because of the gradual loss of fat.

Optimizing Fat Loss

To achieve optimal fat loss and desirable body contours with CoolSculpting, one of the pre-requisites is that the patient should have the commitment to maintain a healthy body weight. Both while the treatment sessions are in progress and later on, the patient should be conscious about their diet and exercise.
Gaining weight during or after the treatment will allow the remaining fat cells in the body to expand, which will again build unsightly fat deposits. Patients should be aware that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for exercise and diet, and it is not a weight loss procedure. People who are able to maintain body weight within ideal or moderate levels will be able to extend the benefits of CoolSculpting for a long time.

Permanent Elimination of Fat Cells

The fat cells once eliminated with CoolSculpting will not return. These are gone for good from the site where CoolSculpting treatment was received. But the remaining fat cells can expand further if the patient is not conscious about maintaining body weight. CoolSculpting re-treatment may be possible in the long run if a patient needs it.
Experienced and fantastic cosmetic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other cities and towns in this part of the northeast for CoolSculpting.

Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women and Men

fdhfhf-300x300 Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women and Men | Northern VirginiaHowever, aging, environmental exposure, stress, unbalanced lifestyle, illness, and genetics can pose hurdles in the fulfillment of looking and feeling great. This is where plastic surgery and non-surgical aesthetic procedures can play a vital role to help an individual overcome the hurdles.
Cosmetic procedures over the decades have become increasingly affordable and accessible to the people in the US and elsewhere.
Millions of Americans enjoy the benefits of these procedures now each year. Although these procedures are more sought after by women, but now men are also increasingly interested in improving their physical appearance and self-image through cosmetic treatments.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides a wide range of cosmetic procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations and suburbs in this part of the nation.
 

Consistent Growth

The growth of plastic surgery procedures in the US has been fairly consistent for the last many years. The field is now recognized as a major industry with American people spending more than $15 billion on surgical and non-surgical procedures in 2016 alone.
This indicates a jump of 11 percent over 2015, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), which presented these figures in its latest multi-specialty statistical report.
Nearly 56 percent of these procedures were related to plastic surgery, while the remaining 44 percent were non-surgical cosmetic treatments. The figure of $15 billion is the biggest amount spent on these procedures in a single year since ASAPS launched its annual Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics survey about two decades ago.
Recent ASAPS research reveals the people’s aspirations are undergoing a rapid change, and the trend is increasingly in favor of more refined aesthetic treatments. For instead, many women now want to choose fat transfer breast augmentation to make their breasts look more attractive because they feel the results with traditional breast implants may appear too obvious. The demand for breast lift is also rising because it is a more understated procedure.
However, one must not infer from these trends that the popularity of breast augmentation is declining in absolute terms. More women still prefer traditional breast implant surgery, and it continues to rank as the second most sought after procedure after liposuction. Surgeries once considered niche, such as labiaplasty, are now becoming mainstream. Men now seek procedures ranging from Botox to neck lift to tummy tuck surgery.
 

Most Popular Procedures

According to the ASAPS research, the five most sought after procedures in 2016 for both women and men combined, include:

  • Liposuction – 414,335 procedures
  • Breast Augmentation – 310,444 procedures
  • Tummy Tuck – 181,540 procedures
  • Eyelid Surgery – 173,883 procedures
  • Breast Lift – 161,412 procedures
