Lip Filling: know how it works and how the procedure is done

The lip filling is increasingly fashionable. Intensified by the exposure that social networks offer to singers and artists, the procedure is considered as one of the main techniques to leave patients with beautiful and natural lips.

But getting to the plastic surgeon in Delhi and just asking to get your lips up like that actress or singer did is not the most sensible attitude. This is because the lip filling aims to make the mouth more harmonious, without deformity and with natural results, and each patient has its characteristics. Only medical analysis can define the correct amount of filling to be applied in each case so that the patient is satisfied with the result and the application. In other words, the ideal is not to seek a result equal to that of that actress/singer, but rather what best matches your type of lip and face.

In this article plastic surgeon in Delhi explains a little more about the filling, the product used and for whom the lip filling is indicated. Check out!

Hyaluronic acid is a thin product, very thin and can be applied superficially to the skin, correcting fine lines. It can also be applied more deeply, depending on the indication.

Lip filling indication

Lip filling is indicated for patients who are dissatisfied with the volume of the lips or even bothered by the signs of aging.

How is done

To perform the lip filling, an anesthetic is applied to the lips. Soon after, the product is injected with a needle to add volume, contour and correct possible defects.

Quantity used

On average, the lip filling will use 1ml of hyaluronic acid, but only the medical evaluation can determine this amount.

Final result

On average, with a week it is possible to see the final result of filling in the lips.

Post-procedure

After lip filling, it is indicated that the patient redoubles the care in the region. The tip is to avoid any kind of blow and impact on the lips. The swelling may appear, but it will go away over the days.

Facelift – Improving The Visible Sign of Aging

What does it consist of?

The lift or facelift surgery in Delhi is a surgical procedure to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It is one of the most popular interventions in cosmetic surgery in Delhi, indicated for people over 40 years.

Over the years, the skin and muscles of the face begin to lose tone and elasticity. Facial Lifting cannot stop the aging process, but it can improve its most visible signs by tensing the deeper structures, readapting the skin of the face and neck, and removing selected areas of skin.

The best candidate is one who has a face and neck that has begun to relax, but whose skin still has elasticity.

Techniques used

The techniques used today by a plastic surgeon in Delhi differ greatly from those used a few years ago when only looking to stretch the skin. Today much emphasis is placed on the relocation of internal structures that, over time, are flaccid or falling. This allows to achieve a much more natural and harmonic effect.

Lifting can be done in isolation, or it can be complemented with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, the application of laser technology (resurfacing) to eliminate crow’s feet, gill liposuction, etc.

The scars are located in different places depending on the type of lifting. However, they always hide in strategic areas such as the crease behind the ear or under the hair, so they are hardly visible.

Duration of the operation and anesthesia

The intervention lasts about 2 to 3 hours, varying depending on the type of correction to be performed. The intervention is performed on an outpatient basis or with admission depending on the complexity of the technique.

The anesthesia used is usually local with sedation, so the patient is totally relaxed and insensitive to pain. During the intervention, our anesthesiologist will take care of your safety and comfort at all times. Your health comes first. In the most complex cases, general anesthesia is used.

The recuperation

Recovery is rapid and the postoperative period as a whole is easily tolerated since the discomfort caused by the intervention is not important. Even so, the plastic surgeon in Delhi will recommend not doing activities that require physical exertion during the first days after the operation. Most patients can perform their normal tasks after 1 week. During the 1st week following the intervention, it is preferable not to leave, because of the post-surgical inflammation of the face. Likewise, it is not convenient to sunbathe during the first 3 months of the postoperative period.

The results

Usually, the result of the operation can be seen immediately, although there is a logical inflammation that will last about 2 or 3 months. To maintain the results it is convenient to use complementary medical and cosmetic treatments.

The price of liposuction in Delhi varies according to the area to be treated, the clinic where it is performed, the region of the country and the type of anesthesia used. Generally, the patient does not need hospitalization, however, if necessary, it may still be necessary to pay the days of hospitalization.

How to prepare for surgery

After surgery, the patient has a more outlined body, in addition to losing some weight, due to the removal of localized fat, resulting in a more beautiful and slim body.

However, after approximately 1 month of liposuction, the results can be better observed, as the person is no longer swollen, and the definitive results only begin to appear after 6 months.

It allows remodeling large breasts, reducing their weight and size. Improves aesthetics and discharges the spine and shoulders.

What does it consist of?

Breast reduction surgery in Delhi is a technique that allows reshaping large breasts, reducing their weight and size.

Breast Reduction is usually done to cover two types of needs:

  • Aesthetic reasons, since excessive breasts improve their appearance with reduction.
  • Health reasons, improving back discomfort when getting rid of excess weight.

Techniques used

The surgical technique used depends on the volume to be reduced, the skin of the chest and the initial position in which the areola-nipple set is.

Whenever possible, the incision is minimal and is hidden around the areola. You can also make a vertical or inverted T-shaped incision (starting from the areola), depending on the case. 

This intervention is not only limited to reducing breasts, but they are also matched and given a natural and aesthetic shape. Therefore, it is an intervention of a somewhat longer duration than other plastic surgery in Delhi

The incision is always the smallest possible. When it is done at the edge of the areola, it is concealed by the very roughness of the tissue and the color change, after a few months. If the incision is made vertically or with an inverted ‘T’, it remains visible, but specific minimization techniques of cosmetic surgery in Delhi are used, so the scar is humanized within a period of about 6 months to 1 year.

Duration of the operation and anesthesia

The intervention lasts between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the morphology of the person and the technique used.

Anesthesia is generally combined, infiltrating the breast with local anesthetics for a lower requirement of general anesthesia drugs (softer) and for less postoperative pain.

Are there any side effects?

Although this type of operation does not have practically any type of side effect, there may be some cases in which some type of repercussion is found. Breastfeeding of future children is not affected in most cases, it will depend on the type of technique used.

Male Breast Reduction in Delhi

Male Breast Reduction – Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia or male breast reduction in Delhi is the surgery that aims to reduce excess fat and mammary glands in men.

Indications

This surgery is indicated for patients suffering from conditions that lead to enlargement of the male breasts beyond the normal standard. So-called Breast Hypertrophy can affect, to varying degrees, up to 50% of men. The problem may have different characteristics in isolation or together, such as excess fat and excess mammary glands. In most cases, breast growth occurs due to hormonal imbalances, in which there is a reduction in the male hormone (testosterone) and an increase in the female hormone (estrogen).

The surgery

The male breast reduction in Delhi is mainly aimed at removing excess fat and glands from male breasts. It is rarely necessary to remove excess skin as well. The procedure can be performed with local anesthesia associated with sedation and has an average duration of 2 hours. When gynecomastia has a predominant component of excess glands, an incision should be made around the areola in order to remove the mammary gland. When the gynecomastia component is predominantly fatty, liposuction in the region is the most used technique.

Sutures can be removed approximately 10 days after surgery and the patient should wear an elastic band during the postoperative period. The end result is the masculine aspect of the pectoral region, which becomes flatter and firmer.

Tummy Tuck After Childbirth

The Benefits of Tummy Tuck After Childbirth

Dr. Ashok Tandon, a plastic surgeon in Delhi, talks about the benefits of tummy tuck or abdominoplasty in Delhi after childbirth, since the woman’s body undergoes numerous changes during pregnancy, especially in the abdomen area.

Mitigates low back pain and improves urinary incontinence

According to a study published in the month of March 2018 in the renowned medical journal “ Journal of the American Society of Plastics Surgeons, ” the tummy tuck , whose goal is to correct the shape of the abdomen by removing excess skin and adipose tissue, and retaining the Abdominal musculature is beneficial in women who have given birth, functionally improving two of the symptoms they most frequently experience: low back pain and urinary incontinence.

Analysis of the study data

The study was conducted on a sample of 214 women who had undergone the tummy tuck surgical procedure after having averaged 2.5 births. During the study, the selected patients had to answer a questionnaire before and after undergoing surgery. The data obtained revealed that, before the tummy tuck, 51% reported severe to moderate discomfort caused by low back pain, while 42% indicated urinary incontinence as a significant problem.

During the subsequent follow-up, at 6 weeks and 6 months, the women experienced a marked improvement in both aspects. Specifically, in the last evaluation questionnaire, only 9% continued to suffer from moderate lumbar pain, and only 2% stated that urinary incontinence continued to persist.

The improvements experienced in relation to urinary incontinence were evident in the first evaluation at 6 weeks, while low back pain had a progressive improvement.

The reported benefits were independent of the surgical technique used in the abdominoplasty.

According to the director of the study, Alastair Taylor, the data obtained from the study have a significant consistency with other clinical cases described above.

Tummy Tuck After Childbirth

Why are the benefits of abdominoplasty in Delhi after delivery?

The distension of the abdominal wall after pregnancies modifies the relationship of forces between the muscles of the back and the anterior to the detriment of the second, and this imbalance is the most likely cause of the appearance of low back pain.

In the light of the data collected in the study, it can be interpreted that the retention of the musculature and abdominal skin contribute to restoring the correct muscular balance between the forces of the dorso-lumbar and ventral regions, which favors the correct positioning of the spine and consequently the improvement of pain.

Likewise, the greater retention of the viscera produced by a tighter abdominal wall has a favorable effect on the angulation between the urinary bladder and the urethra which results in better urinary continence and improves the problems of small involuntary loss of urine that often occur in women who have had several children.

However, more studies will be necessary to verify these points to which we refer in order to establish with certainty the reason for this improvement that the prospective studies have shown; but everything indicates that, in addition to offering an aesthetic improvement at the abdominal level, the benefits of tummy tuck in Delhi after delivery collaterally provide other important advantages that we had not yet repaired.

Correction of Sagging Breasts

With age, weight gain or loss, after breast-feeding, or after therapeutic surgery for the treatment and removal of tumors, a woman’s breasts may undergo significant changes in shape, size or position, which may be corrected.

In some cases, having sagging breasts, or the loss of their shape, volume, mass, the appearance of stretch marks or the asymmetry between them, has, in addition to an aesthetic problem, important consequences in the self-image of women with effects in his self-esteem, in the way he relates to other people, etc.

They are a sign of age, because as the years pass, the skin and ligaments that attach the chest to the pectoral muscle become weaker and are not able to recover the original position.

Therefore, in the case of having sagging breasts, it is usual to consult Plastic Surgeon in Delhi which is the best way to correct it:

  1. A breast lift (Mastopexy)
  2. Implantation of breast prostheses
  3. An elevation with implants

Only a study of each case can advise one of these options and indicate which is the most indicated treatment according to the person, age, lifestyle, etc.

To give just a few examples: it is recommended the elevation of breasts when the fall is medium or severe, the position of the areola and the nipple, you do not want or it is not recommended an increase in size …

On the other hand, breast implant in Delhi is the best option when the chest falls is slight, the nipple is located in the center and has not moved, looking from below the nipple is still enough chest skin and patient It does not bother to increase a bra or cup size.

In cases in which the chest in addition to needing elevation is very large it may be convenient to associate said elevation with a mammary reduction.

Always put yourself in the hands of a specialist medical team that will look for the best solution to the problem and from which you will obtain the best result, using the specific resources of better quality, with less postoperative complications and without visible unsightly marks … your health does not deserve less.

Liposuction in Delhi

Tandon Clinic at Rohini is famous for all types of plastic & cosmetic surgery in Delhi including liposuction in Delhi.

Patients can have a bulging tummy because of various reasons-

  • Excess fat in fat compartment between the skin and the muscle
  • Lax abdominal muscles
  • Excess fat inside the tummy around the intestines and omentum
  • Abdominal wall hernia/ divarication of rectus muscles
  • Excessive lordosis [ forward curvature] of lumbar spine

The correct diagnosis is important to plan the right surgery and achieve a satisfactory result in tummy contouring operations.

Dr. Ashok Tandon, famous plastic surgeon for liposuction in Rohini gives proper details about the procedure.

Liposuction will only correct the fat compartment between skin and muscle. It will have no effect on fat inside the tummy. If that is the major component of the problem, then counseling with a dietician and physician is required to mobilize this fat. Also remember this fat is ‘bad’ for it is an indicator of deep-seated metabolic disorder in the body which is responsible for many diseases like diabetes, hypertension and fatty liver etc.A tummy tuck will remove the extra skin and fat and lead to a nice redraping of abdominal skin. The removal of abdominal stretch marks will be a bonus- a very common problem in females after pregnancy. Any hernia or separation of rectus muscles [divarication] can also be addressed at the same time.

To illustrate this point, this patient Mrs. M. had a bulging tummy which was distressing her. She had no significant extra fat and her BMI was within normal limits. Her bulge was attributable to three things –

Lumber lordosisExcess fat in tummy areaDivarication of rectus muscles.

Divarication was corrected with correct suturing of muscles. The other components were not corrected. Liposuction was not done for safety reasons as doing central liposuction in areas lifted up during abdominoplasty can lead to vascular compromise, it can, however, be done as a small second stage after about three months. Lumber lordsis is a postural thing and cannot be corrected.

Initial results look promising in early pictures and will improve as the scars settle and swelling decreases

How was your recovery from Liposuction?

A patient’s recovery details treated by Dr. Ashok Tandon for Liposuction in Rohini, Delhi.

Mrs. K., 45 years old female presented in the OPD with a desire to improve her resistant abdominal obesity. She maintained a very active lifestyle which included yoga and Pilates. She was diet conscious but despite having a good figure and normal BMI she could not lose weight from her tummy area.

She had a history of 2 cesarean deliveries. She had undergone angioplasty 2 years back and was now asymptomatic but taking Aspirin and Clopidogrel to keep her blood thin.

After Physician clearance, and stopping Clopidogrel for 5 days, she was taken up for tummy and flank [love handles] liposuction under general anesthesia. Procedure was done on daycare basis and patient went back home in late evening. Post-operative period was uneventful. She was advised to wear cycling shorts/ tummy tucker for next 6 weeks.

The pics below show the early result at 3 months.

The following points are worth emphasizing about liposuction

  1. it works best for patients who have normal or near normal weight for height ratio.
  2. Patients should be very motivated to undergo the procedure. This is important for good compliance with post-operative instructions.
  3. Life style should be healthy- Liposuction is no excuse for poor life style.
  4. Aspirated fat does no come back- fat lost is lost forever.
  5. Wearing a tight-fitting garment post operatively helps the skin to rewrap to the reduced contour post liposuction- they need to be worn for around 6 weeks to 3 months.
  6. Liposuction is the surest method for spot reduction.
