As a plastic surgeon it is important to continue moving forward and learn all new developments in the field of plastic surgery…
Between the new liposuction trends we can see how the combination of innovative technologies and treatments have become the real solution to the patient’s wishes
A clear example of that is the evolution of the Abdominoplasty procedure.
The state of art VASER HI DEFINITION LIPOSCULPTURE allows surgeons to use it together with the regular Tummy tuck, this merger concede patients to obtain the benefits of both. Wit the tummy tuck the removal of excess fat and loose skin from the middle and lower abdomen can be achieve as also the tightening and flattens of the abdomen skin. After this first step the Vaser Hi Definition Liposculpture can be made achieving maximum tissue tightening resulting in a slimmer shape and more proportionate contour.
Based in the American Society for Plastic Surgeons 98 percent of patients undergoing the two procedures together would do so again and 99 percent would recommend the treatment to others. The patient satisfaction rate for both procedures combined was over 99 percent, much higher than either procedure on its own.
Dr. Alfredo Hoyos a creator of the Vaser Hi Definition Technique placed big importance in the development of this procedure pursuing effectiveness and extreme satisfaction in patients.
His new technique took the name of FIT MOMMY.
Dr. Hoyos thought in all patients that have an over-hanging, protruding stomach. By far, the most common patients are women who have given birth and have lost the body shape they once had. In many post-partum scenarios, it can be difficult for a woman to regain her pre-pregnancy shape. Excess fat develops, and the skin of the stomach loses its natural elasticity.
The Fit Mommy procedure is performed under a general anesthesia, for the patient’s comfort and safety. An incision is made above the pubic area in the “bikini line,” extending outwards on each side towards the flanks (the incision can use a pre-existing transverse c-section scar, if present). The abdominal muscles are exposed and tightened, flattening the abdomen. If present, hernias or ‘rectus diastasis’ (often present following pregnancy) can be repaired. To finalized a new belly button is created and a LIPOSCULPTURE procedure is made creating definition, a body contouring complete makeover.
