Calf Implants

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Thursday, April 09, 2015

The calves are an area of the body that many people are unhappy with; they’re too lean, they’re too small, or they aren’t proportionate to the rest of the leg or body. Calf implants, also known as calf enlargement or augmentation, is a procedure performed to increase the size of the calf and approve the aesthetic quality of the leg. They are used to create tone and definition of the lower leg. A calf augmentation can especially be beneficial for people with stubborn calves that have not grown with exercise, or have a muscle imbalance due to a birth defect such as spina bifida, or a disease such as polio. This procedure is great for both men and women, and can create a more anatomically proportionate appearance to the leg, in a natural-looking way. It adds both mass and definition, and recovery is usually only about four to six weeks. Whether you’re an athlete, a bodybuilder, a model, or just a person who would like more defined lower legs, a calf augmentation is for you! The effects of calf implants can be even more positive when combined with other procedures like liposuction, a tummy tuck, or a butt lift. Although these procedures are not necessary, they can augment the results of the calf implant procedure. A qualified Orlando cosmetic surgeon will be able to help you understand your options, and whether or not calf implants and other procedures are right for you.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Saturday, March 28, 2015

Rhinoplasty, also popularly referred to as a nose job, is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to correct and reconstruct the shape and physical appearance of the nose, as well as to correct the anatomy and structures of the nose, and restore function lost due to respiratory impediments, such as a deviated septum. Although in the past cosmetic surgery was seen as taboo or expensive, it is now widely accepted as a popular method to improve appearance at a reasonable cost. A nose job can fix physical deformities due to physical trauma, congenital defects, or even a previously unsuccessful plastic surgery procedure. The two main types of nose jobs are closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty; the best procedure for you can be determined by a qualified plastic surgeon, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor or ENT), or maxillofacial surgeon. 

 

During surgery, the nasal skin and soft tissue is removed, and a more aesthetically pleasing and functional nose is created. The incisions are then sutured, and a stent or package is applied to prevent movement and improper healing. A non-surgical method of performing a nose job involves injection of facial fillers to correct or modify slight defects. To determine whether or not someone is a candidate for rhinoplasty, a surgeon will evaluate their medical history, including their physical and psychological health history. Additionally, the surgeon will ask about their symptoms in the case of a nose job to restore function, past surgeries, drug use, and any allergies they may have. Psychological health history is important because it allows an Orlando plastic surgeon to know if a patient will respond and adjust well to their procedure.

General Information on Endermologie

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Wednesday, March 11, 2015

There are side effects to endermologie, although they are minimal. The side effects may include some bruising or soreness afterwards, although the actual pressure and rolling of the procedure can be a pleasurable experience, similar to a massage for most patients. Price may vary by practice, but generally, the cost of the sum of all the sessions of endermologie are comparable to a single session of liposuction. However, it is not usually covered by health insurance policies, as it is considered cosmetic. The effects of endermologie are not permanent, and the dimpled appearance of cellulite may return without monthly maintenance sessions. If you’re searching for a solution to unsightly cellulite, without the side effects of invasive surgeries or life-disrupting fad diets, endermologie is the answer! Talk to an Orlando plastic surgeon to find out if you are a candidate.

 

Breast Lift Surgery

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Thursday, February 26, 2015

If you are considering having a breast lift procedure done, be sure to consult with an Orlando cosmetic surgeon. You will want to ensure that your desired goal is clearly explained to your surgeon. During this initial consultation, all of your previous health information, as well as other important background history, is collected. Between your previous history and your desired goals, your plastic surgeon will explain to you how he/she will help you reach satisfaction.  He/she should also explicitly explain what will happen during the breast lift procedure. It is important that you are educated and very comfortable with the whole process.

 

The breast lift procedure itself is fairly quick—it typically only takes about three hours to perform. Breast lifts are performed either in a hospital, an outpatient surgery center, or a doctor’s personal operating room. During the breast lift surgery, the plastic surgeon will reposition the nipple to a higher location. In order to do so, the surgeon marks the appropriate location beforehand. The doctor will make an incision in one of three areas: around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or around the areola, down the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease. The type of incision made is determined by the results you desire. After the incision, the breast tissue is lifted, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess skin is removed.

 

Once the procedure is finished, your plastic surgeon will close your incision and proceed with post-operation care. The size of the scar from the incision truly varies from person to person. During your initial consultation with your surgeon, they will recommend the incisions that best fit your anatomy. Some of the incision lines from the breast lift will be hidden naturally by the shape of your breasts, but others may still be visible. All of this will be discussed with you beforehand to ensure you are pleased with the results.

Neck Lift Surgery and Alternative Procedures

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Wednesday, February 11, 2015

If your goal is to remove excess skin from your neck, your Orlando cosmetic surgeon may recommend surgery. During this procedure, your surgeon makes an incision either under your chin or behind your ears. This incision allows him/her to access the platysma muscle in your neck. The platysma muscle is located in the chest and front of the neck on the human body, and controls your lower jaw. Your surgeon accesses this muscle to either alter or remove it. This allows for the skin around the muscle to tighten up. It is possible that this procedure is performed endoscopically, which leaves a smaller incision mark.

 

Another procedure that may be used to remove excess skin is liposuction. Orlando liposuction would remove excess fat found in your chin and lower neck area. Your surgeon uses a small incision to access the area in your lower face. It is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding care for your incisions after receiving liposuction. On the other hand, BOTOX Cosmetic injections can be used as an alternate or in conjunction to surgery. These injections help the platysma muscle relax and make the neck have a fuller appearance.

Liposuction can Treat some Medical Conditions

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Monday, January 12, 2015

With Orlando Liposuction, you can look incredible, enhance your confidence, achieve your dream appearance, feel more comfortable in your own skin, give yourself a tighter, more toned body, target problem areas, and even be perceived more positive by others. Although it is not used to reduce body weight, it results in a dramatic and youthful reshaping of the body. It is effective on both men and women, and can even treat some medical conditions. Benign tumors, also known as lipomas, gynecomastia (male breast enlargement), lipodystrophy (fat metabolism problems), excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis in the underarm area, and more can be treated with liposuction. However, liposuction cannot treat obesity, stretch marks, or cellulite. The skin is generally not tightened through cellulite, but can tighten over time. The fatty areas removed by liposuction can reappear if weight is gained after the Orlando plastic surgery, although the results of the surgery are immediately and dramatically noticeable. Full positive effects of the surgery can continue to develop over several weeks or months afterwards.

Are You a Candidate for Body Contouring?

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Saturday, December 27, 2014

Surgical body contouring will remove the excess fat and skin that remained after major weight loss, improving the shape of the support tissue underneath. When the skin lacks elasticity after major weight loss, body contouring can help. The result gives a tighter, smoother appearance, and increases elasticity. In the process of body contouring, many procedures may be performed; facelift, breast lift, tummy tuck, lower body lift, thigh lift, and upper arm lift can all contribute to the positive and dramatic results of body contouring. Additionally, the completion of all these procedures in conjunction is much safer and easier than undergoing them separately, as it eliminates the requirement for sedation and surgery for multiple occurrences across long periods of time. Because general anesthesia is needed for the procedure, it is important to discuss the risks, along with your medical history, with your Orlando cosmetic surgeon beforehand. If you’re interested in body contouring, contact Dr. Richard Arabitg to find out if you are a candidate.

BOTOX Cosmetic is Very Easy to Administer

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Tuesday, November 04, 2014

When you receive a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment from your Orlando plastic surgeon, a substance called acetylcholine is released into your body. Acetylcholine helps temporarily reduce the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form. The result is the reduction of the appearance of the unwanted wrinkle lines.

 

During your initial consultation with Dr. Arabitg, he will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to create the best treatment plan for your needs. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles in the crow’s feet area, the treatment plan will include injections into the muscle that surrounds the eye. This muscle has three areas, and the treatment has three injections per eye. To treat the area between the eyebrows, five doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are injected into two of the muscles in our forehead. These treatments are very easy to administer, and typically do not take any longer than ten minutes. 

Do You Want to Look 20 Years Younger? A Facelift May be for You!

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Thursday, October 16, 2014
Over time, the effects of age, stress, and gravity can weigh down your face creating wrinkles and sagging skin. With the help of anti-aging creams and lotions, it is possible to temporarily disguise the appearance of fine lines and under eye bags, but these solutions are not permanent. If you're tired of throwing your money away on frustratingly temporary solutions, a facelift may be the right choice for you. Only a facelift can create permanent firmness and youthfulness, while reversing the effects of time and stress on your face. Due to creating amazing results, facelifts have become increasingly popular; Orlando plastic surgery is no longer considered taboo or inaccessible. Undergoing an Orlando facelift is affordable, easy, and safe. Dr. Arabitg and his team pride themselves on providing superior patient care, with an eye for detail and personalized artistry that is unmatched. Because he knows that cosmetic surgery is both a science and an art, Dr. Arabitg will work with you to help you achieve the beautiful, natural result you want.
