Summer is the time of year when we take stock of our appearance and check in with our bodies. For many of us, that means confronting ongoing issues that we’d love to do away with, such as love handles or sagging skin in the hips and thighs that keep us from looking our best in a bathing suit. For others, it’s about wanting a fresher, more youthful facial appearance.
For those who want to take advantage of the summer to make those desired improvements and rejuvenate their appearance, great summer specials are now available at Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, led by internationally renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Sameer (Sam) Jejurikar.
RF Skin Tightening for Face and Body
To tighten the skin in the face and body, Dr. Jejurikar recommends BodyTite treatments that also remove fatty deposits from such areas as the lower face (jowls), double chin, upper arms, and inner and outer thighs. BodyTite may also be used to improve contour and definition in the chest, back, abdomen, flanks, and hips.
BodyTite is a revolutionary treatment that is minimally invasive yet produces dramatic improvements in both the face and body, comparable to those achieved by surgery, but with greatly reduced risk and downtime when compared to plastic surgery.
This painless procedure uses advanced radiofrequency technology delivered through a volumetric heating system that breaks down fatty deposits while tightening the skin to create a firmer, smoother contour in the face and body.
Crisalix 3-D Imaging Helps You Select Your Best Breast Implants
For patients seeking larger and fuller breasts, Dr Jejurikar now offers Crisalix 3-D Imaging, a program that helps you visualize your breast augmentation procedure before undergoing surgery, so you can be confident that you’ve selected the perfect size and shape implants to help you look your best.
Crisalix 3-D Imaging helps take the guesswork out of choosing the right breast implants. The program allows you to upload an image of your actual body and “try on” various implants to help you visualize exactly how each will transform your figure.
Transfer Fat from Problem Areas to Enhance the Breasts
Did you know that, instead of augmenting your breasts with implants, you can use your own natural body fat to build bigger, more voluptuous breasts? Breast augmentation with fat transfer is the ultimate win-win summer makeover, because you can improve two different areas of your body at once!
Dr. Jejurikar is thrilled to provide this simple procedure for patients who want a more natural-looking breast augmentation procedure. The procedure uses the patient’s own body fat, harvested from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs, to add natural volume and fullness to the breasts.
Fat transfer is safer and less invasive than traditional breast augmentation with implants, and produces beautiful results that look and feel more like your natural breasts. Fat transfer requires no incisions, which means that there are no scars to worry about. The procedure is also less complicated, less painful, and generally safer than implant surgery, as there is no risk of the body rejecting its own fat.
Fat transfer may require a few treatment sessions to complete, because the body may absorb some of the fat graft, but once the fat graft is established, the added fat will produce a dramatic and natural-looking increase in volume and fullness. Your new breasts will look and feel totally natural!
Enhancing the breasts through fat transfer also cuts back the likelihood of experiencing the common complications associated with breast implants over time, including such problems as capsular contraction, shifting, or rippling of the implant. In fact, many patients who have had worn breast implants for years are now opting to revise their breast augmentation procedures, substituting fat transfer for breast implants to achieve a more natural look and feel and reduce the possibility of needing additional revision surgery in the future.
Fat transfer also provides the additional benefit of removing unsightly fatty deposits from stubborn problem areas such as the hips, flanks, abdomen, and thighs, by means of liposuction, which works through a gentle extraction process. The fat from these problem areas is liquefied and injected directly into the breasts, which means no incisions, no stitches, and no scarring. The liposuction procedure improves contour and firmness in these areas, while increasing fullness and volume in the breasts.
New Dermal Fillers with Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance that the human body produces in large quantities in areas such as the joints, eyes, and skin to attract and retain moisture in these areas. The aging process causes a reduction in production of this essential acid, and we see it most particularly in our skin, thanks to the damaging effects of radiation from the sun, as well as other irritants such as pollutants, cosmetics, and cigarette smoke.
Every day, new dermal fillers are being developed using natural, plant-sourced Hyaluronic acid to help attract and retain moisture in the skin cells, improving the skin’s tone and texture. HA injections also add volume and fullness to the areas such as cheekbones, and they smooth out lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother and firmer facial appearance.
HA injections work gradually over an extended period of time, in some cases over several months, as the HA continues to enhance the skin cells through increased moisture, so results develop gradually and look totally natural. HA also helps protect the skin cells from drying out by enhancing the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
Dermal fillers with HA often produce longer-lasting results than Botox treatments, which usually last for about 3-4 months. In fact, some of the newer HA-based dermal fillers may provide results lasting as long as one to two years.
There are many varieties of HA dermal injections to choose from, and different products treat different conditions. Treatments vary according to the product used, as well as the angle, depth, and placement of the injections. For example, some formulas consist of a thicker gel, such as Sculptra, Voluma, Restylane Lyft, and Juvederm Ultra Plus, which makes them ideal for treating the mid-face region, reducing the appearance of marionette lines or nasolabial folds, and increasing volume and definition in the cheekbones.
Other lighter formulas like Juvederm, Restylane Silk, and Belotero, are more suitable for treating surface imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles. Formulas such as Restylane Silk are specifically designed to increase volume and definition in the lips and lower face, filling in those annoying fine lines that often form above the lip line, while boosting fullness and definition in the lips.
For many patients, a few simple injections every few months can produce a dramatically younger-looking appearance in only a few minutes.
