I am going to get a breast reduction and would like to makemy belly smaller at the same time. Is just getting a panniculectomy done better for this type of procedure?

I am going to get a breast reduction and would like to makemy belly smaller at the same time. Is just getting a panniculectomy done better for this type of procedure?

Depends: During abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) excess fat/skin is removed and abdominal wall muscles may be tightened. Panniculectomy only removes excess fat/skin bellow the level of umbilicus and the abdominal muscles are not tightened. Therefore decision between these procedures is based on what is the goal of the operation. ...Read more

What is the recovery time after having a procedure done with lipodissolve? I am looking at all of my options for getting cellulite removed from my thighs. Does lipodissolve have a faster recovery time than liposuction? Are there any other benefits to it a

Lipodissolve: Lipodissolve does nothing to improve cellulite. The best treatment for cellulite is cellulaze. If you are just looking for minor fat reduction, lipodissolve can be effective and the recovery time is minimal. Liposuction is much more effective but the recovery time is longer. ...Read more

Minifacelift: A minifacelift is a lower face lift. It will improve the jawline and help soften nasolabial folds. The incision is smaller than a traditional facelift.

If I need a hysterectomy in the next year or two and want a tummy tuck how does that work? Which comes first .

If I need a hysterectomy in the next year or two and want a tummy tuck how does that work? Which comes first .

First: see a plastic surgeon to see if you are even a candidate for a tummy tuck vis-à-vis your cardiopulmonary symptoms. Only the healthiest of patients should have a concomitant tummy tuck and hiysterectomy. If you smoke quit. You can have the operations in either order but if the TT is 1st, it would be good if the plastic surgeon could open and close for the gyn if they need to go through the abdomen. ...Read more

What is an easy way for me to lose somewhat a lot of belly fat in a short period of time.?

What is an easy way for me to lose somewhat a lot of belly fat in a short period of time.?

Can't specifically: Get rid of lower abdominal fat by spot reducing. If you lose weight a portion of that weight loss will reduce abdominal fat. Additionally, core toning exercises will help you stand more erect & improve your appearance. To lose weight keep up your physical activity and ensure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. No matter what ads promise – you can't spot reduce without surgery. ...Read more

Want to get tummy tuck and gynestomia breast reduction on the same surgery or at the same time. Is this possible and can u recommend someone in ny/nj?

Totally Possible: Yes, this combined procedure is generally well tolerated. Since this multiple procedure surgery can take 5-6 hours in the OR, I use IV anesthesia (instead of general anesthesia) to reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The best way to find one near you is to search the ASPS site at find.plasticsurgery.org. ...Read more
