Your risk of developing a dangerous blood clot may be higher if you have previously had deep vein thrombosis, or the formation of a blood clot in your leg. If you have had cancer, or if you have a family history of cancer, this must also be considered. Another part of assessing your risk of thrombosis involves a test called the Caprini Risk Assessment Model. It takes note of factors such as your age and any recent injuries or surgeries. A point system indicates whether it is safe to proceed with abdominoplasty, or if any special measures should be taken to ensure your safety during surgery.
As is the case with all cosmetic treatments, fat transfer carries risks (however slight) along with benefits. The benefits of fat transfer via injection are well established; these include correcting facial imperfections and adding volume with a non-allergenic, autologous material (i.e., from the patient's own body). It's important to consider the risks and benefits of fat transfer before electing to undergo this procedure. The benefits are reviewed below, followed by a detailed description of the possible risks and complications of fat transfer.
Ask your surgeon when you will be allowed to shower. You will probably be instructed not to take a bath or use a hot tub, since sitting in standing water before your incision heals is pretty much asking for an infection! (You will probably be told to avoid swimming until the incision heals, too.) Some surgeons allow you to shower 2 to 3 days after your tummy tuck surgery, while others only allow sponge baths until a week afterwards. If you are allowed to shower, you may be asked to wear your support garments, or shower under just a light trickle of water, or with your back to the shower spray. Ask your surgeon for specific showering instructions. Remember, you may feel a bit dizzy or unsteady on your feet due to medications, so be careful in the shower. You might want to have someone assist you or just be in the bathroom with you the first time you shower. You can also buy a shower seat, which is a small stool or chair that fits in the tub.

Chemical peels rarely result in serious complications, but certain risks do exist. These risks include scarring, infection, swelling, changes in skin tone, and cold sore outbreaks. You can reduce the risks associated with facial peels by following all of the doctor’s instructions completely and by providing your doctor with a complete medical history.
It is not uncommon to experience some numbness in the months following a tummy tuck. This can sometimes take up to two years to fade, and is associated with occasional twinges of abdominal pain. Swelling can also come and go for months after the procedure. The best way to alleviate these ongoing symptoms is with shapeware that provides some compression, such as Spanx.
A fat grafting procedure, or fat injection, transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks. This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful fat grafting and are pleased with the results.
2. You buttock's structural anatomy is also an important factor. A V-shaped buttock typically requires more fat transfer to achieve a satisfactory improvement than an A-shaped buttock. Transferred fat cells need to grow their own blood supply from the surrounding buttock tissues in order to survive. In order for this to happen, the transferred fat cells need to be gently interwoven between your buttocks' living cells to survive. Therefore, each person's buttocks can only receive a certain amount of fat, and exceeding that amount will not be effective. A generous amount of fat is typically transferred at the time of surgery, knowing that some of the fat will go away during the recovery period.
If you are taking birth control pills, remember that some antibiotics can interfere with them, so in the event that you have sex, use another form of protection as well. However, I sincerely believe that you won't even be thinking of sexual relations or any type of major movement for at least a week or longer. Even if you felt up to having sex, don't until you get a go ahead from your surgeon! It could cause complications such as suture popping, wound opening and infection.
The cost of the procedure will vary depending on factors like location, expertise of the provider, and what type of peel you want to get. Light peels can cost as low as $150, and deep peels can cost $3,000 or more (specifically if it requires anesthesia, or in-patient stays). According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the current average cost of a chemical peel is $673.
Potential candidates should also have adequate fat reserves for transfer. This becomes especially important when one considers the anticipated rate of fat resorption and graft loss. I typically recommened patients aim for at least 500 cc transferred per cheek. This would amount to 1 liter of fat (not lipoaspirate) after processing. Candidates with inadequate fat reserves are likely to be disappointed with their ultimate volume once healing is complete.
Moderate peels require longer healing time, 7 to 14 days, due to more intensive blistering and peeling. Moderate peels are usually done with glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, or a combination of acids that reach both the outer and middle layers of your skin. Moderate peels may cost anywhere from under $200 to over $600, depending on the provider.
There are variations on the tummy tuck operation which will have variable recovery rates. the main factor is whether the muscle has been tightened. It is the muscle manipulation which slows the recovery. I tell my patients surgery on skin is less painful than muscle. As a general rule, patients are off the pain medications by 5-7 days. Surgical drains need to be removed and this is usually... READ MORE
Liposuction Cost and Liposuction Price Guide Cost of Liposuction is an important factor when considering liposuction surgery. However, the quality of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have a happy patient, then the surgeon’s expertise and experience are probably more important than finding the […]
Hi there- I think it's important to realize that the appearance you would like to achieve may not require a 6 inch increase in your hips (which I agree would be extraordinary), but might be possible through the change in the relationships between your waist, abdomen, and hips. In a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is often possible to make the buttocks look even more full through the suction and... READ MORE
While also removing excess fat via liposuction (more on that later), the first differentiating factor of a tummy tuck is that it can help target the excess skin or stretch marks from pregnancy or a significant weight loss. In fact, experts say a tummy tuck may be the only way to get rid of loose, sagging skin. Matarasso likens it to stretched-out elastic. "Once the elastic gets too loose, you can put a safety pin in it, but by and large," he says, "the elastic is shot."
