A question that may arise during a consultation with patients is whether there are any changes in the size of the areolas after breast reduction surgery. In this video, we explore what specific changes can occur during breast reduction surgery. We’ll also discuss what expectations you should have from it.
Do Areolas Change After Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that helps to reduce the volume of the breasts. As expected, this would also mean a change in the nipples in terms of their size and position. The size of the areolas after breast reduction surgery often change. Initially when the surgery is conducted, the positioning of the areola complex would normally be seen at the fold of the breast before skin tightening occurs. Afterwards, changes are made to the position and size of the areola to ensure that it’s in proportion.
The following case study provides before and after photos from the breast reduction surgery. How the skin stretches can be rather unpredictable. Which is why the areola requires stretching also. However, the appearance of the scars can appear better if less stretching occurs of the areolas.
Patients should look through case studies of those who have had similar surgery. This will help you to get a better understanding of what the final results of the surgery may look like. When looking at the patients before and after photos, consider their shape and size as this will provide you with the best indication.
‘What is body jet liposuction?’ – Considering the range of liposuction options available this may be one question that you’d ask yourself. It’s important that you check to see what form of liposuction is best for you. Then consider the pros and cons of each. In this vlog, we’ll address the question of what is body jet liposuction and provide further details about how the procedure is conducted.
Body jet liposuction is a form of liposuction where a minor incision is placed within the treated area and a cannula is inserted inside. A high pressured water system is used to push through water to break up the deep fat inside the body. This form of liposuction is beneficial as it breaks the deep fat, improving cellulite appearance after the removal. This can also aid skin retraction.
Due to the local anaesthetic that’s applied to the water, the recovery process for the treatment is relatively quick. Although incisions need to be applied, you should expect them to fade in a short amount of time. Furthermore, they become un-noticeable rather quickly, lessening the chances of bruising. In the before and after photos in the video you’ll be able to see the results of liposuction. It’s advised that some discomfort will be felt. You should expect to see the full results of the surgery around 6 weeks after the procedure.
Liposuction surgery is the process of removing fat from the body and can be used on several areas. Many patients consider having the liposuction procedure on stomach fat. Although there are many positives when undergoing this procedure, there are also negative points to be wary of. More specifically, on some occasions, too much or not enough fat is removed. This can leave excess fat after the procedure is conducted. This is why it’s extremely important to run through the pros and cons of the procedure before you go ahead.
Where this is considered greatly is if you choose to get a liposuction procedure on stomach skin and fat. The front of the abdomen has a very thin dermis. This means there should be careful consideration when removing fat during the liposuction procedure on stomach skin.
The liposuction procedure can be more useful on the flanks where there is more excess skin and the dermis appears thicker. If any irregularities were to occur for any reason, it would be easier to hide them in this particular area. View our case study of a patient who has had a liposuction procedure on stomach area and flanks. The results show positive physical changes in their appearance from before to after.
As always, before you go ahead with this procedure, it’s important to ensure this type of surgery is right for you. Visit our liposuction case study page for more information.
It can be rather common for patients to use a liposuction procedure for moving fat from stomach to buttocks. What you might ask yourself though is whether this surgical procedure will actually help to improve the appearance of your buttocks. In this vlog, we go into more detail about liposuction and whether it can enhance the appearance of your buttocks for the better.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure to help remove excess fat that has formed over time. In some cases, a fat transfer can be used to inject the excess fat back into the body in an area of your choice. The technical term for this is better known as liposculpture.
The appearance of your buttock can improve by moving from your stomach to buttocks and this is accomplished by removing fat from the flanks and abdomen area of your body and injecting it back into the buttocks. It’s important that enough body fat is removed from these areas in order to gain the ideal hip to buttock ratio. In some cases, patients also have fat removed from underneath the buttock areas to achieve this.
Overall, liposuction and more specifically liposculpture is a great technique to help improve the overall contour of your buttocks. The pros and cons of moving fat from stomach to buttocks will be discussed during your consultation.
