Liposuction surgery

Liposuction surgery removes fat cells from specific areas of the body like the abdomen region, back, thighs, arms, neck and face. This is a cosmetic procedure, which does not help you lose weight, however it enhances the appearance by making you look slimmer and shaping the area, where the procedure was performed. There are many methods of liposuction, so you should consult with your surgeon to select the most suitable one for you.

Liposuction methods:

a. Tumescent liposuction is the classic type of liposuction surgery, when a sterile solution (a mixture of salt water, which helps fat removal) is injected into the area that is being treated, together with an anesthetic to relieve pain and a drug that causes the blood vessels to constrict. The affected area swells and stiffens. Then, your plastic surgeon then makes small incisions into the skin and inserts a thin tube. The tube is connected to a vacuum, which suctions fat and fluids from your body. An intravenous (IV) line might be connected to your body to replenish the body fluid. This method is usually selected to remove fat from larger areas of the body.
b. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL). This method of liposuction is sometimes used in conjunction with the previous one. The difference is that the surgeon inserts a metal rod, which emits concentrated sound waves under your skin. The energy of soundwaves breaks the fat cell walls and liquefies the fat, so it could be removed more easily. Often it can be done using VASERlipo technology that is minimally invasive, the surgeon can precisely select break up small or large areas of fat while the surrounding tissues are untouched. It is proven to be highly effective, giving patients the defined contours they want while being gentle and leaving less tissue injury than traditional liposuction procedures.
c. Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) is a variation on the traditional procedure. This method uses high-intensity laser energy to liquefy the fat and make it easier to remove through a thin tube placed in the slit. This results in a less aggressive plastic surgery, which may lead to faster recovery times. In areas with thin layers of fat, like the face and the neck, the tube to remove the fat might not be used at all. In this case, the body naturally absorbs and eliminates the liquefied fat. We use Smartlipo technology to perform this procedure.
d. CoolSculpting procedure can also be considered a type of liposuction. It safely and precisely cools the targeted area, to gently and effectively crystallise (freeze) the fat cells underneath the skin and make them die. Through a period of time, your body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, leaving the area more sculpted and smooth.

The duration of your surgery and the recovery time, depending on the type of liposuction performed and the targeted area. In most cases, at least one day rest in the clinic is necessary. In the first one to two weeks after procedure it is normal to experience soreness, bruising and swelling in the affected body area. The slits made are very small, so any scars will be minimal and quickly fade over time. The full results of the liposuction procedure are usually seen six week after surgery, when all the incisions are fully healed, and area returns to normal state.

c. The skin around your belly button will be repositioned and stretched. Then, the incisions will be stitched back together.
The difference between a tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck is the amount of excess skin and fat your surgeon has to remove. Mini tummy tuck is suitable, when you have little skin that needs to be removed and only one small cut will be enough to tighten the abdominal region.

Usually this plastic surgery lasts two to five hours, depending if you have other procedures done at the same surgery. After the tummy tuck, your incisions will be covered in surgical dressing and small tubes might be placed in them to remove any excess fluid or blood. It is common to feel swelling and moderate pain in the area for about six weeks, sometimes it might last up to three months. Also, it is necessary to wear a supportive abdominal binder for about six weeks after procedure, which will provide abdominal support while the wounds are healing. It is important to be careful when moving and avoid bending, because it could reopen the incisions. At Amber surgery, we will help you regarding the healing process.

After the first couple of days, the bandages and the draining tube might be removed and then you will need to wear a compressive sleeve or bandage, to help the incisions heal, for a few weeks after arm lift plastic surgery. Also, you should avoid lifting your arms above the shoulder lever after the first few days after the arm lift procedure. It is also recommended to avoid any forceful activities with your arms, which would stretch the incisions for about six weeks after surgery and take pain relief medication, if needed, and antibiotics to prevent wound infections.

Sometimes this procedure is combined with liposuction to achieve better results. Patients, who have lost a lot of weight with the help of a balanced diet and exercise, or after a bariatric surgery, but still have a lot of excess tissue on their thighs, often choose this procedure to improve their appearance. The results of this surgery are long lasting, if the patient is committed to maintain a healthy lifestyle and moderate weight after the procedure.

A thigh lift can be performed in several ways. Your surgeon will recommend the most suitable incision length and placement depending on the targeted area, how much skin he or she would need to remove, and the changes you seek to make.

The most common thigh lift surgery techniques:

a. Inner thigh lift. During this type of surgery the incisions will be made at the junction where the thigh meets the pubic area. The incisions will allow him to reach the underlying tissues, while making them barely visible, since the scars can be hidden with underwear. Your plastic surgeon will then remove a part of the excess skin and fat from the region and tighten the remaining skin to improve the leg contours.
b. Mini thigh lift can be offered to patients, who experience sagging on the upper third of the leg and seek only a subtle change. During this procedure the slit in the groin area is very short, which makes the recovery period faster and the scars are only minimal.
c. Outer thigh lift is also known as a bilateral thigh lift. It is a more complex plastic surgery, when compared to the inner thigh lift, because the surgeon will make the incisions at the top of the leg, where the lower edge of underwear would be, creating a shape similar to a “V”. If a larger area needs to be lifted, the incision might be made surrounding the hips, including the buttock area as well. Then, the excess skin and fat will be removed and the remaining amount will be pulled up, reshaped and attached to the place where the incision were made. This technique tightens the skin along the both the right and left sides of the leg, and helps to lift the buttocks as well.
d. Medial thigh lift can alter the shape of legs and remove excess skin and fat from the upper region of the inner thigh. During this procedure, the incisions are made in the groin area (similar to the inner thigh lift) and will be extended back to the crease of buttock, or even the hip region. This technique might also include vertical incisions, that surgeon would be able to access more underlying tissue. The skin will then be lifted, and the shape of the leg will be improved and tightened, by removing excess skin and fat.

The duration of thigh lift surgery depends on the individual situation and technique. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and the first couple of days after operation hospitalization is recommended because tiny tubes might be placed into your incisions to drain out any excess blood or fluid. The first month after the surgery, it is necessary to wear a compression garment to help the incisions heal. Follow-up appointments with the surgeon are necessary to discuss when the stitches should be removed and to monitor your recovery process.

The Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery for people, who are looking to enhance their small, flat or sagging buttocks and make them fuller and more lifted. A very natural appearance can be achieved, because your own fat tissue is injected into the upper area of the buttock. Many people undergo this procedure to feel more confident and sensual, Brazilian butt lift became especially popular over the last few years, because many famous people have a larger bum and it received a lot of attention through the media.

The procedure can be split into three parts:
1. You and your surgeon will decide, where the liposuction should be performed to “harvest” the necessary fat tissue. Then, before beginning the procedure, you will undergo local or general anaesthesia. The surgeon will make the incisions in the designated area (most commonly it is abdomen, back or thighs), insert a tiny tube to suction the fat and the fat might be liquefied using one of several techniques, like using ultrasound waves, laser, manual motion, or vibration. Once there is enough fat tissue collected, your incisions will be closed.
2. Your doctor will purify the fat tissue using a centrifuge an will select only the best fat to be used for the injections.
3. Surgeon will inject the fat tissue into the buttocks through tiny tubes at various places and depths to achieve the desired look. A greater number of smaller injections results in a more natural look. This step usually requires only local anaesthesia, but can also be performed under general anaesthesia.

For two weeks after the procedure it will be necessary to wear a compression garment to help the slits heal, and you should schedule follow up appointments with your surgeon for further instructions, since every patient’s healing process is unique.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer also commonly known as fat grafting has been a popular technique in cosmetic and medical surgery for a long time. Fat tissue is one of the most valuable sources of stem cells, which help to rejuvenate the overlying skin when transferred.

The fat transfer procedure can be explained as a three-step process:

a. Harvesting: You and your surgeon will select the area, from which to remove fat and a local anesthetic will be injected. A small incision in the area for fat removal will be made and, using a sterile technique, a small tube connected to a syringe will be inserted to carefully extract fat (liposuction).
b. Purification and transfer: when enough fat will be obtained from the donor area, your fat transfer surgery doctor will process and prepare the fat cells for transfer. They will be put into small syringes with which the fat injection will be made. Purification process in necessary to remove impurities and the fat tissue might be spun in a centrifuge or filtered.
c. Placement: The area designated to receive the fat tissue will be prepared. Incision will be made in that area and a needle or a tiny tube will be inserted into the slit point. The surgeon passes the injection needle in and out of the areas to be augmented multiple times. Each time the needle or tube is taken out, a line of fatty tissue parcels is carefully deposited in natural tissue planes. Your surgeon repeats the process until the desired correction is achieved, creating a grid of grafted fat. Sometimes it is recommended to massage the fat transfer areas to create the desired contour. Other surgeons might prefer to rely on the placement method to create the appropriate contour.

The duration of this plastic surgery depends on the areas where the fat tissue is harvested from, and where it is placed afterwards. Usually the recovery period is quite short – one to two weeks. Fat transfer is considered to be a safe procedure with very little risk of complications. Fat transfer plastic surgery in Lithuania aftercare in Ireland.

Hernia Surgery

Hernia plastic surgery in Lithuania aftercare in Ireland. Hernia occurs when the strong tissue that holds muscles in place (fascia) is teared and intestines or fat tissue bulge through the gap. Usually it happens, when the inside layers of the abdominal muscle have weakened, so the protruding tissue forms a small balloon like sac. Hernia might cause discomfort when stretching, bending over, lifting or coughing. Sometimes you might feel severe pain and need an emergency surgery.

Everyone, both men and women can have hernia, at times it can happen to infants. This condition does not get better over time, neither go away by itself. The only ways to treat hernia are with special medication and devices designed to keep the protruding tissue in place, or more commonly undergo a surgery. Even after the treatment, there is still a chance for hernia to reoccur, as the abdominal muscle weakens with age.

There are several types of hernia:

• Inguinal hernias occur in the groin area, when the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. This type of hernia more often occurs among men, since they have a natural weakness in this region.
• Femoral hernia occurs just below the inguinal ligament, when the intestine enters the canal carrying the femoral artery into the upper thigh. This type of hernia affects more women than men, especially those who are pregnant or obese.
• Incisional hernia develops where a surgical incision was made during a previous abdominal surgery. It is more likely to occur if the wound has not healed well (e.g. there was an infection). Elderly or overweight people who are inactive after abdominal surgery are most likely to have this type.
• Umbilical hernia involves a protrusion of the abdominal contents through the abdominal wall near the navel. It is common in obese or pregnant women, or infants.

Whatever type of hernia a person has, it important to consider a proper and timely treatment. More commonly, a surgery is considered as a more sustainable way, providing long lasting results. Depending on the patient’s condition, it may be an open surgery, when the abdominal cavity is cut open, or it may be a laparoscopic procedure, where the surgeon makes small incisions, and using a small camera and special tools to perform the procedure. In both cases, the result is to restore the integrity of the abdominal wall and reduce the mass of the protruded tissue. To do so, your surgeon pushes the mass of the hernia into the abdominal cavity and mends the weak part of the abdominal wall muscles with sutures or covers it up with a special mesh prosthesis without using the tension. The surgeon will choose the most suitable method for you at the time of the consultation.
