Why does abdominal etching surgery takes 1 hour?
Hi Def/ 4D / Liposculpture Liposuction - An Explanation
Mar 15, 2017
Liposuction has become a needlessly confusing topic. At its most basic, Liposuction involves the removal of fat from under the skin (NOT from inside the belly) by having it sucked into stainless steel tubes (cannulas). ANY such fat removal qualifies as "liposuction" and there are many ways to get the fat to become more "liquidy" BEFORE it is sucked into the cannula (such as Heat (laser lipo), Ultrasound (VASER), Vibrating Water jets (Aqualipo) and Power Assisted (PAL). The mere removal of t...
Have bad rippling and want another reduction, lift & maybe small implants
Ripply Breasts after Breast Augmentation
Mar 14, 2017
If you hold a breast implant on the palm of your hand and tilt your hand at nearly 90 degrees the upper portion of the implant WILL ripple and create folds. You can replicate this with a Ziplock back full of water. The same exact thing happens when a surgeon places a breast implant into a breast which lacks sufficient skin thickness and soft tissue coverage with would otherwise cover these ripples up.For this reason, implant must be chosen in conformance with the availability of the breast t...
Can a slimmer person get a Brazilian butt lift?
Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift candidate
Nov 13, 2016
It sounds like you may be a great candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. A Brazilian Butt Lift involves liposuction of the lower back and hips to define and bring out two round hemispheric buns and then to augment them with your own fat. Such an operation has much nicer results in slimmer not in obese women. The key, as in everything we do in life, is to pick a great surgeon. One who would listen to you and who has the experience and sense of artistry to create the best result possible. ...
Would I be a good candidate for liposuction?
Unhappy with previous Smartlipo: what's the solution?
Nov 6, 2016
Although you do provide very helpful photos you did not provide your before Smartlipo photos for comparison nor do you state WHY you are unhappy with your current result. Without seeing your initial photos at the beginning of your journey of self-improvement it is hard to guess just how much the smartlipo took you or if it was the best option at that time. At this point you appear to have residual fat pockets both above and below the belly button and excess skin above and below the belly ...
Is hernia repair covered by insurance if it's done during a tummy tuck procedure?
Hernia Repair Coverage during a Tummy Tuck
Nov 6, 2016
There is a fundamental difference between muscle separation associated with pregnancy or Diastasis which is seen in every women who carries a child to full term and a hernia, where intraabdominal content is pushed out and forward through a weak point (such as the belly button) and may be at risk of being twisted or losing its blood supply. Most insurance companies would "cover" hernia repairs IF you and your Plastic surgeon request (sometimes repeatedly) for it. But it requires calls and ...
Can saline implants be partially deflated for purpose of wanting smaller breasts instead of an expla
Can Saline Breast implants be partially deflated ??
Nov 4, 2016
Sakine breast implants have a valve and opening in the tip of the implant through which we fill them. Once they are out under the breast the fill tube is removed and the opening is pushed close. To change size you would have to have surgery to go through the breast to the valve, open it and either add or remove saline. This cannot done by putting a needle through the skin into theimsvt which would cause gradual deflation of the implant. Be aware that removing a significant amount of saline ...
Bottomed out?
Bottoming out of the Breasts
Oct 21, 2016
You DO have bottoming out of the breasts. This happens as a combination of the use of a breast fold incision, over dissection of the bottom pocket either by the surgeon or by you ( by not wearing a bra and allowing the implants to undermine and and push they way lower) and as an inevitable act of larger implants and of gravity. There is nothing that needs to be done now as your breasts sizer is still changing. Correction of the implant pocket should be done about 6 months after you are done ...
Reduction and lift?
Breast Reduction = a Lift which makes the breasts smaller
Oct 8, 2016
A Breast Reduction is a Breast Lift which makes the breasts smaller. You must be clear on just how much smaller your breasts will be and the scar placement. I would suggest you meet your surgeon again and have all your questions fully answered.   Dr. Peter A. Aldea
Can I really not go to a full D?
Full D or Bust
Oct 7, 2016
Your question brings up several topics all of which must be addressed and understood.

D CUP ASPIRATIONS - While most discussions about breast sizes use bra cups as a comparison and communication tool, doing so is woefully inaccurate because a cup size is NOT a real measurement applicable across all bra manufacturers. So, unless all women use the SAME bra comparing cup sizes is notoriously inaccurate as a comparison tool AND As a predictive tool in saying how large a certain implant wou...

Lipo and BBL first or tummy tuck first?
Liposuction with BBL
Oct 4, 2016
Respectfully, I truly wonder you are comparing yourself to with a figure that is as nice as yours. I would be one happy and lucky Plastic surgeon if I had more women that looked as great as you. In my opinion, you could have stunning results with HiDef Liposuction (which removes fat while accentuating your muscles and curves) with fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL). The key is not to assume, but to make sure you and your surgeon understand your goals and are able to reach them. This ...
I'm worry that my 650cc silicone implants will be too much. Any suggestions?
The BEST way to choose YOUR Breast Implants
Oct 4, 2016
Choosing the ideal breast implant is hard and it is made harder by some of the junk you hear and see on the web. The best way to pick an implant is by measuring your available breast tissue and then focusing on the 10 or so implants that would fit. (If your breast tissue does not fully cover the implant you will have visible rippling and folds AND a much faster sagging of the Brrasts). Merely stuffing a bra with implants is a poor way to pick implants since it falls into the ...
Is it a bad idea to fly from the UK to the US for BBL surgery?
Air Travel and Buttock Surgery
Oct 4, 2016
BBL involves converting flat, indistinctive buttocks into attractive, round and distinctive. This is done by liposuctioning around the buttocks making them rounder and then grafting the necessary volume of fat into them to make them as prominent as you and your surgeon would like. Unfortunately fat survival depends not only on how the fat was removed and grafted but also on the compression and shear forces placed on the buttocks after surgery while blood vessels slowly grow into the fat a...
After losing the weight what procedure would u recommend I need to done to get my body on the right
BBL VS. Liposuction
Oct 1, 2016
The purpose of a consultation should be educational: you should learn what could or should not be done and what the consequences may be. If you did not get this information do NOT proceed and have any operation or procedure. Liposuction is the removal of up to 10 pounds of under the skin fat by steel tubes hooked to high suction forces. HiDef of 4D liposuction removes the fat but goes further to define the muscles below and the junctions between the muscles for a more athletic appearance. ...
Juvederm Lip Injections?
How much Lip Filler would I need?
Sep 24, 2016
Hyaluronic Acid fillers such as Restylane/Juvederm and their many cousins offered by several companies produce similar results in the lips. There are subtle differences between them such as spreadability, stiffness, swelling during and after the placement which some Plastic surgeons like or dislike. In my opinion, although it's a poor business decision, I would rather place less product and come back later and place more if needed. Few things are more comical or scream "fake" than a pair of...
My white blood cell count is high, can i still get clearance for tt surgery or have tt surgery ?
Cosmetic Surgery and High White Cell Count
Sep 24, 2016
Since cosmetic surgery is never a life saving emergency surgery it should not ideally be done under risky circumstances. A high white cell count may be associated with many conditions including infection somewhere in the body, or inflammation such as urinary tract infection, sinusitis, pneumonia, appendicitis air certain cancers or immune responses. It is best to get to the bottom of it before proceeding. Dr. Peter A. Aldea
