Slimming Your Framing Features with Cosmetic Surgery

Just like there are clothes and colors that can help make you look skinnier, there are cosmetic surgeries that target specific areas of your body, to create a slimmer, more fit appearance. The three main areas that you can target to achieve this skinnier profile is the arms, legs, and face. If you are curious and want more information regarding cosmetic surgery and arm liposuction, contact Moein Surgical Arts to talk with our staff about preparation and prerequisites. Schedule an appointment today to have a consultation with Dr. Moein to begin your journey to a slimmer body.

Arms

By reducing the size and sagginess of your arms, you can help make your whole body look slimmer. There are two major cosmetic surgeries that you can undergo to achieve this: an arm lift and an arm liposuction. The arm lift is the more common of the two because after weight loss or aging, most people’s skin will become loose and saggy. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, will help tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that shapes the upper arm, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Ultimately, it takes the excess skin and fat that cannot be eradicated using workout routines and healthy eating and tightens it up.

A liposuction of fat in the arm is utilized more infrequently and usually will need to be accompanied with an arm lift because the skin may become saggy after the liposuction procedure. Arm liposuction is a great option in certain cases where smaller amounts of fat need to be removed, and for patients with good skin quality so the elasticity is not destroyed. Contact Moein Surgical Arts today to discuss whether you are a good candidate for arm liposuction, and information on any other procedures that would benefit you.

Legs

One of the most prominent places that people gain weight is in their upper legs, and is a hard to combat part of aging. Even those living a healthy and active lifestyle can be susceptible to this weight gain. Slimming your thighs is a great way to make your whole body look more trim. A thigh lift is the most useful and common procedure to help make your legs look young and slender. This is achieved by removing excess skin and fat from the upper legs to make a defined look that will compliment any outfit you decide to wear. This is a more intense and invasive procedure, so if you are looking for something with a little less recovery time, there are a few non-surgical procedures used in the industry as well. Fat can be removed without making any incisions by using radio frequencies or freezing the fat. Permanent hair removal on your legs can help make them look more in shape, as well as utilizing cellulite reduction techniques.

Face

The shape of your face can really frame your whole body, and there is scientific evidence to prove that certain shaped faces are stereotypically perceived as more attractive. Some of the invasive procedures include reducing the size and shape of your jaw, cheekbones, and lower face. Many people also have a double chin, which can be reduced to create a slimmer neck area. These all involve removal of the facial structure to create a look that you desire, and fat removal in the face can be utilized to have the same effect. However, if these invasive procedures scare you, another option is to inject Botox to weaken the muscles and reduce the tissue, so there are many options, both surgical and non-surgical to choose from.

Arm Liposuction

By strategically focusing on certain areas, you can make your entire body look slimmer. Moein Surgical Arts can point you in the right direction and help you pick the surgical procedures that will benefit your unique body most.

Best Cosmetic Procedures to Fight Facial Aging

As we age, gravity begins to take its toll and things begin to sag and wrinkle. If a full-face lift isn’t a challenge you want to undertake, there are other cosmetic procedures you can investigate, so you can avoid Father Time for as long as possible. You can have procedures done on your cheeks, jaw line and neck. Many people opt for upper eyelid surgery to give themselves a more youthful look. Read on to learn more about this procedure and where to have the best experience for upper eyelid surgery.

If you constantly hear the phrase, “You look tired,” when you’ve had plenty of rest, you might be a viable candidate for an eyelid lift. This type of procedure gives you that rested and naturally youthful appearance you’ve been looking for.

Each patient is different, so no procedure is the same but those considering an eyelid lift are wanting to address sagging skin around the eyes, smooth out wrinkles and reduce puffiness. We’ve all heard the saying, “the eyes are the window to the soul,” so when our eyes appear to sag or droop, people might assume we are angry or sad even when we’re not.

Having upper eyelid surgery can help diminish wrinkles and sagging skin to give you a more relaxed and youthful look. Upper eyelid surgery will remove the excess skin and involves an incision that is made in the natural crease above the eye. Dr. Moein will then remove excess skin and fat or adjust the muscles that surround your eye to give you the results you are looking for.

Eyelid surgery is typically done as an outpatient procedure and can last anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours. Some people decide to have a brow lift or facelift done at the same time, so this can lengthen the procedure time. Recovery is usually easy for most patients and there is some visible bruising and swelling for the first few days. Experts advise using cold compresses and sleeping with your head elevated for the first few days post-surgery.

Patients shouldn’t begin driving again until cleared by their physician but most return to work and normal life about two weeks after an eyelid lift. There are a few side effects post-surgery. Your eyes will get tired more quickly for the first few weeks after surgery so let them rest when they need to. It’s also important to protect your eyes from severe weather, particularly sun and wind, so investing in some protective eyewear is key. Patients should also avoid lifting, straining or bending down to pick up heavy objects for about a month after surgery. Leading a healthy lifestyle and using sunscreen are important steps in keeping your results long lasting.

The Right Medical Team and a Realistic Budget

Considering the cost of any cosmetic procedure is also a key process in coming to the right decision. It’s important to do your homework and understand the benefits and set backs of all your options. A qualified plastic surgeon will help you take all this information into consideration and talk you through all your options.
