New and Innovative Rhinoplasty Practices

Rhinoplasty is cosmetic facial surgery that’s ordinarily done to further improve a person’s physical appearance or to reconstruct their nasal area for health related purposes. A rhinoplasty surgery involves adjusting the cartilages and bones of the nostril , or sometimes tissue is added in order to maximize the cosmetic appeal. The surgery is also commonly executed to fix nasal fractures as well. If rhinoplasty is performed to repair someone’s nasal fracture, the surgeon tries to recondition the nostril to its pre-injury condition. A related procedure often known as septorhinoplasty is done on patients that in addition have a nasal obstruction. Septorhinoplasty works to greatly enhance the look of the nasal area , but also stabilizes the overall structure and reduces any internal obstacles that might be blocking the patient’s nasal breathing.

Any aesthetic worries and expectations you have needs to be completely discussed before rhinoplasty surgery treatment . The recommendations of your plastic surgeon along with any special limitations concerning the structure of your nose , skin , or face in general are essential to have thoroughly stated you. Make-up free snap shots are typically taken prior to operation to assist with both the preoperative and post surgery planning stage in order to document the results .

Make inquiries and express your concerns.

Finding a professional , qualified doctor to perform your rhinoplasty surgery should be your main priority when thinking of getting any type of cosmetic operation . ASAPS ( American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ) has recommended that each patient should ideally consider the following tips for best results :

• Consult at least 3 different surgeons before choosing one

• Be sure the cosmetic surgeon you choose is board certified

• Ask where your surgeon is privileged to legally practice to ensure his credibility

• Request to see before and after photos of previous patients

• Talk in-depth about the surgery as well as the results and recovery and any potential things that may possibly go wrong or happen unexpectedly

• Ask about the surgeon’s rhinoplasty experience . How many has he done ?

• Does the surgeon have malpractice insurance ? If not , get up and leave

• Ask about the follow-up procedures

• Request to contact former patients about their own experience

• How much does the procedure cost ? What about insurance ?

The results of rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty results could possibly be minor or major , based on the type of modification you want done, but they are however permanent. It’s very important that both you and your cosmetic surgeon are on the same page relating to the goals of your process. If you have realistic expectations and your plastic surgeon like Ernesto J Ruas MD FACS, the outcome will likely be very positive overall.

Woman’s breast cancer survival story reminds importance of self exams

A local woman openly takes us through her very personal story of finding and beating breast cancer.
http://www.fox2detroit.com/healthworks-sponsored-by-henry-ford-health-system/30746603-story

“I was lying in bed reading and, for whatever reason, I felt a twinge and reached over and did a squeeze and felt a really big lump. So, that was three weeks from doing a self-exam and feeling nothing to feeling a really large lump,” she remembers.

That lump would change everything.

Susan was quickly diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer.

“Horrified. I was terrified. It’s a very frightening diagnosis,” she says. Her first instinct is to get rid of the cancer with chemo and then with a double mastectomy.

“Whatever I could do to live was the only thing that was important to me,” she says. But at the same time Susan methodically considered her treatment options.

“Then you start thinking, ‘Well, why shouldn’t I look as good as I can?’” she says. That’s how she ended up at St. John Hospital with plastic surgeon Dr. Melek Kayser. Susan decided on a lesser known option called fat grafting, or moving the fat from one part of her body to another.

“We create the entire breast mound from a patient’s body fat,” Dr. Kayser explains.

First there’s liposuction, then that fat is processed and injected.

Brazilian Butt Lift by Melek Kayser MD

Butt Augmentation or a Brazilian butt lift improves the butt shape, by increasing the size of the butt, balancing the proportion, enhancing its contour, or enhancing firmness. This surgery is carried out by the process of liposuction in which the surgeon removes fat from one part of the body and transfers that fat into the buttock.

The butt lift procedure usually takes 1 to 4 hours, but is based on body type of body. Liposuction extracts fat from one part of the body and then the fat cells are purified or cleaned, to re-inject into the buttock. Healthy fat cells are required to complete this operation. The process is designed to improve the upper part of the buttocks

FAQ’S

How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy’s secret is ultrasound energy. This treatment incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows Pur Skin Providers see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered where it will be most beneficial and safe. Learn more about Ultherapy

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The ultrasound energy reaches all the way to the deepest levels of the skin; the same levels as those affected in surgical face lifting. This treatment jumpstarts a natural renewal process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. This new collagen lifts and tightens the many layers of the skin for a natural, long term, noticeable result.
