Body Sculpting

  • Brazillian Butt Lift

The buttocks is an area that naturally tends to show signs of aging or might appear deflated, prompting women and men with an absence of the projection of the gluteal region to opt for this procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure achieves buttock augmentation that not only reshapes, but also enhances the size of a patient’s butt resulting in an attractive, prominent derrière.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Buttock Implants
There are two ways to create a fuller and shapelier backside. One way is to place buttock implants. While implants may increase the volume of the butt, they may do little to improve the overall shape. In addition, implants carry risks of shifting.

The Brazilian butt lift provides natural-looking, long-lasting results without the risks associated with artificial implants. The procedure uses your own fat, so there is no danger of rejection, shifting, or scarring.Therefore, Dr.Sameer prefers the BBL as opposed to buttock implants.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The Brazillian butt lift takes approximately 2-3 hours and can be done under regional or general anaesthesia. It is advisable to have an overnight stay at the clinic following the procedure for a comfortable post op.

  • Procedure

A Brazilian Butt Lift begins with liposuction of the excessive fat immediately surrounding the buttock area. This initial fat removal defines and highlights the outline of your entire buttock anatomy. The fat is then carefully separated from the body fluids and processed before transplant. The fat cells are transferred in milliliter aliquots to the Gluteal region at various depths and tissue planes. Large volume transfers are preferable for long lasting results.

  • Post-op Recovery

Following the surgery, Dr.Sameer will recommend a special compression garment that will help the healing process and support the buttocks. You will have to avoid prolonged pressure on the butt while sitting & sleeping for a full 2-3 weeks to avoid resorption. If you must sit, you should sit on a padded or cushioned surface and not on hard surfaces. You should be able to return to work, assuming it is not a job that involved rigorous physical activity, within 2 weeks. After about 2 months, they should experience a full recovery from any pain, swelling, bruising, and soreness.

  • Brand New You !

After a successful Brazilian Butt lift, the fat that remains will stay there for the rest of your life. Like the rest of the tissue in your body this fat will grow and age with you. It is important to follow a healthy lifestyle. Exercise can also help the buttocks maintain its shape and size.

  • Mini Tummy Tucks

Most women are familiar with the ‘Muffin Top’, that stubborn pouch of fatty tissue immediately below the belly button. Diet and exercise often do little to improve this unsightly area. While clothing can help to conceal the lax tissue, pants and dresses may simply do not fit the way they used to – and forget about wearing a bikini. Fortunately, there is a surgical procedure created just for this situation: the Mini Tummy Tuck. A mini tummy tuck is designed to improve the contour of the abdomen only below the belly button.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The duration of the procedure is approximately 3 – 4 hours. the procedure can be done under regional or general anaesthesia as a day care procedure. Overnight stay is recommended if combined with another procedure..

  • Procedure

VASER lipo is always done prior & in conjunction with the mini tummy tuck to contour the upper abdomen & the flanks for complete body contouring. The Mini Tummy Tuck will begin by making a short incision, along the bikini line. The unsightly fatty tissue and lax skin is excised followed by dissolving sutures to close the incision..

  • Post-op Recovery

Mild to moderate pain, especially in the first 48 hours can be treated with analgesics. Pressure garments are advised for 3-4 weeks following the surgery. Swelling, soreness, numbness, bruising usually last for 7-10 days. and you could plan your trip back home after that.

  • Tummy Tuck

While fat may be reduced through diet, the problems of loose skin or relaxed muscles following pregnancy or sudden weight loss, are typically not improved with diet and exercise alone. Tummy tuck is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed and is designed to surgically remove excess skin (along with stretch marks) and fat from the abdomen. This procedure has the potential of creating a marked improvement in both physical appearance and self-esteem in men and women alike.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The duration of the procedure is approximately 4 – 5 hours. The procedure can be done under regional or general anaesthesia. An overnight stay is recommended after a TT & a minimum stay of 2 days is advised after a full abdominoplasty if combined with other procedures.

  • Procedure

An incision just above the pubic area, along the bikini line that spans from one hip bone to the other is taken. A second incision is usually made around the navel to core it out. The abdominal wall repair is done by tightening the recti muscle together, which creates a flatter, firmer abdominal wall and a slimmer waistline. The abdominal skin is pulled so far downward that it is necessary to reposition the belly button to keep it centrally located.

An Extended Abdominoplasty is performed in patients with loose skin that extends to the sides of the body, an extended abdominoplasty can address a larger amount of excess skin and fat—and can even help improve the appearance of the upper thighs. The incision extends partway around the sides and back of the body.

  • Post-op Recovery

Swelling, tenderness, numbness of abdominal skin, bruising, and tiredness, some, or all of these can last up to several weeks. Drains are removed after 3-5 days. Dressings are changed on day 5,10 & 15. The stitches on the navel if any will be removed after 10 days.You will be required to wear a tight corset for a month post op 24×7.

  • Brand New You !

The results of a tummy tuck are intended to be permanent, though patients will have to be diligent about preserving the results through maintaining a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise. Weight gain, pregnancy, and aging can all have an effect on the longevity of abdominoplasty results, so patients need to be prepared for possible changes in appearance over time. A full tummy tuck can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other procedures. It can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as Breast Augmentation or Brazillian Butt lift as a part of a Mom Makeover.

  • VASER Liposelection

If you have stubborn areas of fat, VASER® Lipo can help to transform the shape of your body. VASER liposuction is the most advanced liposuction technique for sculpting, etching, and defining body contour. It uses highly specific ultrasonic energy to heat up fat cells and remove them without any risk or damage to surrounding nerves, blood vessels, or connective tissue, thus artfully, selectively and permanently contouring the body into a more proportioned, smoother shape without compromising your comfort and safety. As an alternative to liposuction, VASER® can reduce rolls, folds, lumps and bumps to redefine your silhouette without the downtime, painful recovery or risks involved with the more traditional procedure.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The duration of the procedure varies considerably (1 – 4 hrs.) depending on the extent of the procedure, the number of areas to be treated etc. Smaller procedures can be done under local anaesthesia with sedation, major ones require regional or general anaesthesia. Usually daycare is required however overnight stay is recommended in large volume liposuctions or if combined with another procedure.

  • Procedure

TThe VASER Lipo System uses small-diameter, solid probes to deliver a minimal level of ultrasonic vibrating energy to specifically target and emulsify—or “liquefy”—the fatty component of the tissue. By liquefying the fatty tissue prior to removal, aspiration can be performed with less avulsion (less tearing of the tissues). The VASER Lipo procedure uses specially designed aspiration cannulae, called VentX® Cannulae, which efficiently remove the emulsified fluids thereby preserving the tissue matrix (the blood vessels & nerves) from damage.

  • Post-op Recovery

Mild to moderate pain, especially in the first 48 hours can be treated with analgesics. Dr. Sameer prefers to use suction drains following the procedure which are removed after 2-5 days depending on the volume of the lipo. Swelling, soreness, numbness, bruising usually last for 7-10 days.

  • Brand New You !

The best candidates for VASER® Lipo will be at or near an ideal body weight for their height. VASER® Lipo is not a weight-loss method, but rather a body contouring technique. It is important to note that older patients may not be able to achieve the same results as younger patients due to diminished skin elasticity. VASER is always done in conjunction with other body contouring procedures like Tummy tuck & Brazillian butt lift for more complete body contouring.

  • PowerX (PAL)

Toning your body through diet and exercise alone can take years – and there’s no guarantee that your investment will pay off with the ideal body you’ve always wanted. PowerX can deliver the flawless physique you’ve worked so hard to achieve – in considerably less time. Unlike other reciprocating power-assisted liposuction technologies, the PowerX® System utilizes a controlled rotational cannula to quickly and effectively treat fatty areas while minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissue. When done in conjunction with VASER, the results are even better with lesser downtime.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

Smaller procedures can be done under local anaesthesia with sedation, major ones require regional or general anaesthesia. Usually daycare is required however overnight stay is recommended in large volume liposuctions or if combined with another procedure.

  • Procedure

The PowerX is used by itself to harvest fat or after pre treatment of the fat by VASER . The PowerX system with its rotational cannulas efficiently removes the emulsified fluids thereby further preserving the tissue matrix (the blood vessels & nerves) from damage.

  • Post-op Recovery

Mild to moderate pain, especially in the first 48 hours can be treated with analgesics. Suction drains are removed after 2-5 days depending on the volume of the lipo. Swelling, soreness, numbness, bruising usually last for 7-10 days.

  • Brand New You !

Improvement will become even more apparent after about 4 to 6 weeks, when most of the swelling has subsided and after about 3 months, the final contour will be visible. If your expectations are realistic, you will probably be very pleased with the results of your surgery. You may find you are more comfortable in wide variety of clothes and more at ease with your body.

Patients will be able to see an immediate improvement in their appearance, after their Mini Tummy Tuck procedure. The abdomen will be flat, tight, and smooth. The Mini Tummy Tuck procedure can provide amazing results on its own, however, it can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as Breast Augmentation or Liposuction, to restore a youthful, sculpted appearance.

  • Revision Tummy Tuck

It is always easier to have your surgery performed correctly the first time. But when you are dissatisfied with your initial results you may seek an expert in plastic surgery to revise your prior abdominoplasty and obtain results more in line with your original expectations from surgery. To undo a prior abdominoplasty surgery and re-contour your abdomen correctly takes experience and skill. Some of the most common of these aesthetic concerns that can be corrected with abdominoplasty revision include unsightly scarring, an undesirable scar location, and a disproportionate or unnatural-looking belly button size and position making this procedure more complicated than the original operation.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The duration of the procedure is approximately 4 – 5 hours under regional or general anaesthesia. An overnight stay or more is recommended depending on the extent of the procedure.

  • Procedure

5 Common reasons for the patients toot for a Tummy tuck revision are :

1. GENERAL DISSATISFACTION : Prior to undergoing the procedure, if the surgeon and patient have not reached an understanding regarding the patients expectations post op, patients will be unhappy with their results. In such a case, tummy tuck revision will be required in order to achieve the ideal result.

2. EPIGASTRIC BULGE : An epigastric bulge might mean these muscles continue to bulge underneath the skin or residual fat, causing a bulky appearance in the stomach. This could be addressed with VASER lipo.

3. LINGERING DEFORMITIES : Sometimes there are residual deformities that are left over. Such deformities include:

  • • Inadequate tissue removal, prompting a revision surgery to remove it.
  • • Dog ears, which occur when tissue bunches up while the incision is being closed.
  • • Residual fat deposits, which cause the abdomen and pubic area to appear disproportionate.

4. BELLY BUTTON DEFORMITY : The belly button can appear deformed or unnatural following a tummy tuck. It may look elongated, enlarged, or have an obvious scar on its circumference.

5. SCAR ENLARGEMENT AND MALPOSITION : As one of the most common reasons for tummy tuck revision, the resultant scar may appear overly large. It may also be positioned too high on the stomach, preventing patients from wearing swimsuits or other tummy-bearing garments.

  • Post-op Recovery

Drains are removed after 3-5 days. Swelling, tenderness, numbness of abdominal skin, bruising, and tiredness, some, or all of these can last up to several weeks. The stitches on the navel if any will be removed after 10 days.You will be required to wear a tight corset for a month post op 24×7.

  • Brand New You !

Patients are often satisfied with the results of their tummy tuck revision and frequently develop a new sense of self confidence having lived with an unsatisfactory result for so long.
