Before getting my tummy tuck surgery, I researched everything about the procedure. And yet, I was still surprised by the significance of my tummy tuck scar, even after having seen photos in the office and online. The increased pigment in my skin means that I am prone to scarring and hyper pigmentation. While there are a number of laser treatments available to minimize the appearance of scarring. Tannaz from CosmetiCare recommended ClearLift.

I had a ton of questions and fears before surgery. I even considered not having surgery a couple of times simply out of fear of the unknown and not being the one in control of the situation. Now that everything is said and done, I am SO happy I had lipoabdominoplasty at CosmetiCare. What I didn’t realize before having surgery, something I’m not sure anyone can truly explain, is how life changing a tummy tuck can be and how it can drastically change your emotional outlook on life.

After many rounds of microneedling, I wanted to try something else to help smooth my skin. I did a CO2 laser resurfacing for acne scars and it was amazing! It has been six weeks since I had my laser treatment for acne scars at CosmetiCare and I’m so happy with how it turned out!

Developed by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, the FDA-approved treatment, CoolSculpting, uses high-end patented cooling technology to eliminate fat cells. You don't need to undergo surgery or significant downtime.

Keep in mind that the reduction of pesky fat cells in the treated area offers noticeable, and long-lasting results!

Orange County CoolSculpting or fat freezing is a simple, 30-minute in-office fat elimination procedure, which can successfully help you achieve fat removal without undergoing surgery. With cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting can achieve outstanding and lasting fat reduction.

CoolSculpting in Orange County safely delivers accurately controlled cooling in order to gently and successfully target fat cells under your skin. Note that the treated fat cells slowly crystallize (frozen), and then die. With the passage of time, your body will naturally process the fat and eliminate these dead cells, resulting in a more sculpted and toned body.

During a standard CoolSculpting treatment, our CoolSculpting Specialist will place an applicator on your targeted area(s) and it will "suck" up a bulge of your skin, and work to freeze fat underneath the surface. Also known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting, is FDA-approved for various areas of your body, including thighs, abdomen, underneath the chin, bra and back areas, upper arms, and underneath the buttocks. 

During the treatment, you may feel an initial coldness and suction. However, it will quickly fade to numbness. Note that after the application, a lymphatic massage works to break up your frozen fat cells, which eventually die. Over time, your body eliminates these dead cells naturally.

It is worth noting that CoolSculpting isn’t an alternative to weight loss. Ask your trusted Orange County plastic surgeon for more information.

The truth about nose size, shape, and orientation is that it may completely change your look even if you opt for a slight alteration or adjustment. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, which reshapes your nose so that it balances better with your other facial features. Rhinoplasty is a life-changing experience for many people.

Often times, plastic surgery can be a means to put an end to a lifetime of criticism, bullying, and even self-doubt. This is particularly true and relevant in the case of rhinoplasty. The surgery, often referred to as a “nose job,” can transform lives.

Here are the most common ways people’s lives tend to change after an Orange County rhinoplasty:

Greater Self-Confidence

Physical appearance, for many people, correlates with self-confidence. Keep in mind that rhinoplasty could help get rid of lifelong insecurities and self-doubts for improved self-confidence. With improved self-confidence, you could look people in the eye when they talk to you.

In addition, you could pursue new opportunities, attract the people you like, and engage socially in ways you never did in the past.

Seek Out New and Better Opportunities

Even a person’s professional life may benefit after a rhinoplasty in Orange County. After all, a friendly attitude and confidence could pay off in any profession, which leads to more opportunities that you can use to show off your abilities.

As soon as you take on a new and improved self-image and become more confident in your social interactions, you will be surprised to know that a whole new world of possibilities can appear both in your personal as well as professional life.

Unimpeded Breathing Function

Another life-altering and important benefit of rhinoplasty surgery is that making some physical changes to your nasal structures could correct the flow of air.

Many individuals know going into rhinoplasty surgery that an anatomical abnormality in the nose negatively affects their breathing function. On the other hand, some people do not notice that the shape of their nose affects their breathing until after the procedure, when the nasal passages open and it becomes much simpler to breathe comfortably through the nose. A majority of people are glad to know that they sleep a lot better with enhanced breathing function following rhinoplasty.

Improvement in Appearance

One of the most obvious effects of rhinoplasty Orange County plastic surgery is the positive improvement in the appearance of your nose. Even minor cosmetic tweaks as well as subtle results could bring the nose into greater harmony and balance with the rest of the facial features.

With a proportional and more elegant nose, your face looks more defined and proportional. In fact, for many people, the face even looks thinner!

The purpose of rhinoplasty isn't to sculpt the perfect symmetrical nose. Actually, such a thing does not even exist. Keep in mind that the perfect nose for most people is one that looks natural. Their nose doesn’t detract peoples’ eye away from the rest of the face. In addition, the best part is that you can achieve this through rhinoplasty.

 

Pregnancy, aging and dramatic weight loss could make your abdominal muscles less elastic with the passage of time. You may experience this regardless of how much you exercise or how healthy you eat.

To combat these undesirable effects and improve your figure, you can opt for an Orange County tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty. The procedure can tighten your stomach muscles while reducing skin and fat around your midsection. This will make your abdomen appear smoother and flatter.

Tummy tuck in Orange County involves the surgical removal of fatty deposits or excess skin from your abdomen. It also repositions your abdomen muscles to achieve a tighter formation. Moreover, the tummy tuck procedure can reverse the adverse effects triggered by aging, weight changes, and pregnancy. 

Tummy tuck is best for you in the following cases:

You Have Loose Skin or Tissue around the Abdomen

While a tummy tuck will definitely target stubborn pockets or deposits of fat, in order to qualify for the procedure, you should also have a considerable amount of excess or loose skin around the abdomen.

Your Orange County plastic surgeon would make a sizable incision in order to perform a tummy tuck. This reason is why in case you don’t have enough excess or loose skin, it could cause some tension in the scar. This tension can lead to an unsightly and undesirable "stretched" look.

As both partial and full tummy tucks are now available, if you just have loose skin below the belly button, you might still be a good candidate for the partial tummy tuck procedure.

You Lost a Considerable Amount of Weight or Had a Baby

Keep in mind that both obesity and pregnancy can cause damage to your abdominal muscles; in addition, it could stretch the skin around your belly.

The muscles and skin are permanently damaged; and note that even after you deliver the baby or reach a healthy weight range, these tissues may continue to hang loosely around your stomach, which is unsightly.

A tummy tuck is great as it can quickly repair these tissues. Hence, your body would more accurately and proportionately reflect your healthy weight range.

You Aren’t Planning To Lose More Weight

Ideally, you must be within fifteen to twenty pounds of your healthy weight prior to undergoing a tummy tuck.

Although many patients tend to lose some weight following the procedure, in case you drop more than thirty pounds, it could leave more excess and loose skin as well as sagging muscles around the stomach, which can negate the results of this procedure. That is something you certainly do not want.

Therefore, if you’ve been regularly hitting the gym but still feel like your tummy has hit a wall, a tummy tuck can be the ideal prescription for the best belly!
