Astounding Body Lift Surgery in Newport Beach CA

Body Lift | Body Contouring | Newport Beach | Orange CountyAging, genetics, the environment, and other factors will typically take a toll on a person’s body over time and cause loss of skin elasticity and weakness in the underlying tissue and muscles. This can cause sagging skin, uneven body contours and compromise the aesthetic appearance. It is possible to counter this condition through diet and exercise up to a point. However, in cases where the condition does not improve significantly through diet and exercise, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend body lift plastic surgery.

Newport Plastic, led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify, is a state of the art practice providing a range of body lift surgery procedures. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive advanced and innovative cosmetic surgery procedures from Dr. Seify.

Fantastic Candidates

Body lift plastic surgery may be suitable for any man or woman who is bothered by the presence of loose skin or uneven body contours in a particular area, which is resistant to diet or exercise. The candidate may have lost the natural elasticity of the skin or underlying tissue due to aging, hereditary factors, sedentary lifestyle, major weight loss, prolonged sun exposure, pregnancy, or previous surgeries.

Body lift cosmetic surgery solutions are typically sought by patients suffering from excess skin or fat deposits in the upper arms, thighs, buttocks, groin, abdomen, face, or breasts. The procedure is designed to reduce excess skin and fat, and enhance the body tone and contours. Patients bothered by the presence of cellulite, which makes the skin appear uneven, wrinkled or dimpled, can also benefit from body lift surgery.

Key Procedures

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify is in a position to offer some of the most effective and advanced body lift procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas. These procedures may include the following, and more than one procedure may be recommended in some cases, depending on the patient’s aesthetic needs.

  • Liposuction
  • Breast Lift
  • Facelift
  • Neck Lift
  • Thigh Lift
  • Arm Lift
  • Mini Tummy Tuck
  • Buttock Lift

In most of the body lift procedures, the cosmetic surgeon will use general anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia. Most procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure begins with the surgeon placing small incisions in discreet locations in the targeted area. Through the incisions, the excess skin will be removed, and underlying tissue may be tightened as needed.

If the patient suffers from stubborn fat deposits along with sagging skin and muscles, the surgeon may combine the procedure with liposuction to remove excess fat. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions will be closed with sutures or skin adhesive.

Recovery

Most patients will be able to resume their regular activities or go back to work within a week to 10 days after body lift surgery. However, strenuous exercises should be avoided for at least six to eight weeks. Full results of the procedure will appear gradually as the swelling subsides completely.

Mommy Makeover Orange County | Newport BeachMommy makeover is a comprehensive plastic surgery procedure aimed at restoring the pre-pregnancy figure for a mother. As this cosmetic surgery can involve multiple procedures and is highly customizable, many new patients will have several queries and concerns about it.

Dr. Hisham Seify, a board certified plastic surgeon, will address the patient’s queries in detail during the initial consultation. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and other areas have an opportunity to receive this procedure from him. Here is a set of frequently asked questions that should help new patients get answers to some of the basic issues related to a mommy makeover.

Who is a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover?

The cosmetic surgeon will evaluate the key areas of the body that may need surgical improvement, and assess other factors such as the patient’s general health, previous surgeries if any, and her personal aesthetic goals. Patients with a fair amount of skin elasticity will usually achieve the best outcomes with a mommy makeover procedure.

Why is a mommy makeover better than having the procedures one at a time?

In case of a mommy makeover plastic surgery, it becomes possible for a surgeon to create a comprehensive and cohesive treatment plan for best outcomes in a most conservative manner. Secondly, the patient is required to undergo the typical risks, pain and discomfort associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure only once. In individual procedures, general anesthesia will be required separately each time. Separate recovery periods will be involved, where as in a mommy makeover, multiple procedures will entail a single recovery period.

What is the right age for a mommy makeover?

It primarily depends on an individual patient when they would like to go through a mommy makeover. A plastic surgeon would usually recommend mothers in their twenties and thirties to opt for this surgery if they are keen for it. In these age groups, the skin is fairly elastic and the body resilience is very high for multiple procedures and quicker recovery.

How much time should a woman wait after childbirth to go for this procedure?

Dr. Seify would recommend this procedure to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby locations only once their body is back to normal after childbirth. Once the body weight has stabilized and breastfeeding has stopped, the patient is usually in a position to undergo a mommy makeover. It may take about four to five months before a mom’s body returns to normal, with the exception of breastfeeding.

What is the average duration of a mommy makeover surgery?

The average duration of a mommy makeover procedure will depend on the number and extent of surgeries involved. For instance, if the patient needs to undergo breast augmentation, breast lift and tummy tuck together, the procedure may take about four to five hours in the operating room.

What is the estimated recovery period?

Recovery process may vary from one patient to another based on several factors. However, most patients will be ready to go back to a desk job within 10 to 14 days. Strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercises should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. This can include lifting heavy grocery bags or relocating your couch in the living room to more desirable location, for example.

Mommy Makeover Before and After Photos

A mommy makeover cosmetic surgery refers to a combination of two or more procedures designed for moms to restore their pre-pregnancy figure. The procedure is highly customizable and may be performed using a variety of techniques and surgical approaches.

During the initial consultation for a mommy makeover, the plastic surgeon will show the before and after photographs to a new patient to give them an indication of the kind of look they can expect after this surgery. Dr. Hisham Seify is an experienced cosmetic surgeon providing mommy makeover among other procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

What are Mommy Makeover Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery refer to a pair or a group of images belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure successfully. The photographs include images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the bruising and swelling have resolved and full effects of the surgery are apparent.

The plastic surgeon will take these pictures discreetly with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients during the initial consultation. The only goal of these pictures is to educate new patients about the potential effectiveness of the procedure, and help them make an informed decision. The images serve as a visual tool for the surgeon who can explain various aspects of a mommy makeover more effectively.

Benefits

Many of the new patients may only have a vague idea of what the mommy makeover plastic surgery can do for them. Several treatment approaches and techniques may be available for this procedure, and the surgeon will make the appropriate choices in consultation with the patient. For a patient, it can get difficult to choose the right combination of procedures to match with their personal aesthetic goals.

This is where the cosmetic surgeon will make use of mommy makeover before and after photos to educate the patient correctly about the surgery before a final decision is taken. Dr. Seify tries to ensure that mommy makeover before and after images are made available to his patient in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas during the initial consultation.

Being Realistic about the Results

Mommy makeover is one of the most comprehensive procedures in aesthetic plastic surgery, and the results can be very significant. However, it is still of paramount importance to ensure that the patient understands the potential outcome of the procedure correctly and forms realistic expectations about it. Patients with clear aesthetic goals, positive frame of mind and realistic expectations will typically achieve higher satisfaction levels in a mommy makeover.

This is where before and after photos can play a key role in helping ensure that the patient knows clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the surgery. Surgeons may also put up the mommy makeover before and after pictures on their practice website to enable free access to anyone who needs to know more about this procedure and its potential effectiveness.

Mommy Makeover Overview

Mommy makeover has emerged as one of the more sought after plastic surgery procedures in recent years. As the surgical techniques became more advanced, it has become safer and easier to perform major procedures such as mommy makeover. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing mommy makeover among other procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas.

What is Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Mommy makeover is essentially a combination of two or more cosmetic surgery procedures that are performed at the same time with an aim to provide an improved physical appearance. A cosmetic surgeon may perform this procedure for a mother who is keen to regain her pre-pregnancy figure. Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women can develop stubborn pockets of fat in specific areas of the body, experience breast volume loss, stretch marks and loose skin in the abdominal area, or other aesthetic concerns.

In such cases, a mommy makeover plastic surgery can be performed on suitable candidates to restore a more youthful looking appearance. Mommy makeovers typically involve breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty, body contouring or other surgeries to achieve comprehensive and long lasting aesthetic outcomes. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive this treatment from Dr. Seify.

Suitable Candidates

Mothers who are in their late twenties to mid thirties constitute the largest demographic for mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. To evaluate a suitable candidate, the surgeon will check the patient’s overall health condition, previous surgeries if any, anatomy of various areas of the body that may need correction, and the patient’s personal aesthetic goals. The patient should ideally be a non-smoker or ready to stop smoking several weeks prior to the procedure.

Procedure

A mommy makeover may include the following procedures performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon:

Abdominoplasty

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is one of the common procedures included as a part of a mommy makeover. During pregnancy, the abdomen gets stretched and many women will put on extra weight around the waist. Tummy tuck can effectively reduce excess skin and fat tissue to achieve a firmer abdomen.

Breast Implants

If the patient has suffered loss of breast volume following the pregnancy or breastfeeding, a breast implant procedure may be included as a part of a mommy makeover. This will increase the size of breasts and make the overall appearance more attractive as per the patient’s aesthetic needs.

Breast Lift Surgery

If the breast size is normal, but the breasts appear to droop or sag heavily following a pregnancy, a mom may opt for breast lift surgery. This procedure will involve removal of loose skin, repositioning of nipples, and raising the breasts to a more youthful level.

Liposuction

One of the most popular and effective procedures included in a mommy makeover is liposuction. This procedure can easily be combined with other surgeries. It can be used to perform targeted fat reduction from specific areas of the body to achieve the desired overall aesthetic results.

butt lift surgeryAdvancements in plastic surgery in recent years have made it possible to perform body contouring, reshaping, and lifting procedures in almost any part of the body. One of the procedures that have seen a steadily rising demand is butt lift cosmetic surgery. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing this surgery, among other procedures to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding areas.

What is a Butt Lift?

Butt lift surgery is a popular name for gluteoplasty, which is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon to lift and tighten the buttocks. The goal of the surgery is to ensure that the buttocks appear more youthful and attractive, and in harmony with the rest of the body.

Sagging buttocks may occur when the skin in the area loses its elasticity and the underlying tissue and muscles are weak. Butt lift plastic surgery is designed to remove the loose skin and reposition the surrounding tissue to provide an improved and tighter contour.

Different from Brazilian Butt Lift

Butt lift cosmetic surgery is slightly different from a Brazilian butt lift. In the case of a Brazilian butt lift, the surgeon will inject the patient’s own spare fat into the buttocks in order to add more volume to them and achieve a lifting effect. However, sometimes even a standard butt lift procedure may be performed in conjunction with fat grafting, if the patient’s goal is to make the buttocks appear significantly augmented.

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Seify will evaluate the patient’s anatomy and her aesthetic goals before recommending an appropriate treatment plan. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive a marvelous, fantastic, and impressive butt lift surgery from him.

Suitable Candidates

Any adult who is unhappy with the appearance of excessive loose skin in the buttock area or the back of the upper thighs could be an appropriate candidate for this procedure. Patients who are bothered by a mild condition of cellulite in the buttock area could also benefit from a butt lift.

Ideal candidates will be non-smokers or ready to stop smoking several weeks prior to the procedure. They will also have a stable body weight and a commitment to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle after surgery. Patients with large fat tissue in the buttocks may need a combination of a butt lift and liposuction, but not a butt lift alone.

Procedure

The surgeon will decide whether to perform a butt lift using general anesthesia or IV sedation. The surgeon will make an incision in a pre-determined discreet location in the area where the loose skin needs to be excised. Excess skin will be removed through the incision, and the buttocks will be tightened and reshaped using internal sutures.

The remaining skin will be re-draped over the buttocks tightly and smoothly. The surgeon will close the incisions with sutures or surgical tape. Temporary drains may be placed in the skin to collect excess blood or fluid. Most patients will be ready to resume their regular daily activities or go back to work within a week to 10 days.
