Although wrinkling around the eye is an inevitable occurrence, it is never really welcomed. It signifies the loss of vitality and youth, as the lines around our eyes become more prominent as the result of our body’s incapacity to maintain cellular growth at rates equivalent to the golden days.Surgery is not the only option but is a permanent option. Equivalent results can be achieved through tear-trough injections of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that elevates the skin through retaining water. Hyaluronic acid injections have a lifespan of a year before the body breaks the sugar down. Therefore injections need to be applied annually to maintain the juvenile appearance.
Liposuction, in general, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn fats from various locations around the body. Laser liposuction is a laser-assisted procedure of fat removal. Laser beams are used to first break or “emulsify” stubborn fat in target areas, and a cannula is then inserted to suction the emulsified fat out. Vaser liposuction, on the other hand, utilizes an ultrasound-assisted cannula to insert in problem areas. The cannula simultaneously breaks and suctions the fat out. Vaser liposuction has more benefits over laser liposuction, some of these benefits include lower risks of damaging neighbor tissue and the elimination of sagging skin.
Men who suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that leads to breast tissue enlargement, are good candidates for the surgery. Essentially, patients can opt for oral medications to eliminate the physical symptoms of gynecomastia, however, medication is not effective in all cases. If all else fails, surgery is an ideal option that can permanently eliminate the pronounced appearance of male breasts.
The preparations for any cosmetic surgery begin at least two weeks prior. Lifestyle changes that your surgeon may ask from you to make includes abstaining from smoking, alcohol consumption, and strenuous activity. It’s important to rest well. Of course, your surgeon will provide you with elaborate instructions upon meeting including avoiding certain categories of drugs.
Surgery is not the only option for altering facial features or achieving a well-defined countenance. Hyaluronic acid fillers have skyrocketed in popularity for their multi-purpose versatile applications. Although most used for rejuvenation, if applied in the right areas such as the cheekbones and jawline, the effect of the dermal fillers will add a touch of elevation in treated areas creating the illusion of a natural well-structured face.Hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected in the lips to achieve plump lips. Unlike surgery, hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent and their effects wear out within a year. To maintain the aesthetic consequences of the injection, the treatment has to be repeated annually.However it’s important to note that although dermal fillers may give certain individuals hollow cheekbones, the procedure is not for everyone. If patients do not have the right structure from the start, they will have to opt for surgery to get the sculptured face they desire.
It’s a common misconception to split breast surgeries into two categories: reduction and enlargement. While the two constitute a small percentage of breast surgeries, they are focused on altering the size. A breast lift is a form of surgery that deals with the aesthetic enhancement of th breast, nipple, and areola.The effect of gravity, aging, genetics, and fluctuating weight often leads the breast to be saggy. It’s not a worry as the juvenile appearance of the breast can be restored with breast lift surgery. Minimal scarring and a smooth recovery tails the procedure.
This varies from one procedure to the other. The results of dermal fillers are instantaneous, with minor accentuations in the following days.With rhinoplasty, the results are eclipsed by swelling and bruising that often alleviates within two weeks. Major changes will be apparent thereafter, however, changes will continue to build up gradually until the final sculpture is obtained within a year’s time.The list moves on in the same direction, results will be instantaneous however, eclipsed with swelling and bruising that often alleviates within weeks.
Cosmetic surgery is generally performed under the effect of general anesthesia with the exception of liposuction and dermal fillers. The latter is performed under local anesthetic.Your surgeon will prescribe anti-inflammation and painkiller medications to keep discomfort to a minimum.
Your options depend on where you problem areas are located. For instance, toned arms are obtained through arm lift. Stubborn fat around the sides and abdomen is treated with tummy tuck, the buttocks is given a firmer look with a Brazilian butt lift
To replace a lost tooth, you have the option of dental implants. Dental implants are structures compromising of three units, a root, abutment, and crown. Unlike dentures, the structure of a dental implant is securely anchored with a titanium root entrenched in the jaw bone. The implant typically enhances circulation in the jaw bone as it applies pressures to the area, making it the only dental prosthetic to prevent bone erosion. The incentive of the abutment is to connect the crown to the root. Unlike the root, crowns are not made from one standard material. Instead, they are made of a versatile range of material that each possesses multiple characteristics. Discuss the options with your dentist to see which option suits your case and financial plan.Dental implants are not placed as a full unit from the get-go. The process constitutes three major steps.Step 1: placing the root The root placement is either preceded by bone grafting or not. Bone grafting is necessary when the dentist picks up that your jaw bone is not strong enough to support the structure of an implant. Your bone strength is a determining factor in the success of the surgery. If found brittle, a piece of bone whether from the patient or synthetically made is placed to scaffold the jaw bone. In a months’ time, the jaw bone breaks the implanted material down and generates growth on top of the graft increasing its strength.The implant is then placed in a 15-20 minute surgical procedure under the effect of local anesthetic. The following step is postponed until the bone infused with the titanium root in 8 to 10 weeks.Step 2: Placing the abutment When the bone is expected to have completely fused with the root, abutment placement ensues. The gum is opened on the surface to make visible the surface of the root, the abutment is secured on it, and the gum is closed around the abutment but not over it. The healing period is estimated at around two weeks.Step 3: Placing the crown Once the gum heals, the crown can be safely placed. The process is split into two sessions. During the first session, the dentist will take impressions of your mouth and gap to send to an offsite laboratory to construct the crown. In the second visit, the crown is placed and secured on top of the abutment.
Dental implants have a life expectancy of 5-15 years. Factors that influence the longevity of dental implants include oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and the material of the crown.
Dental implants are treated exactly like natural teeth. Patients are expected to brush them twice a day, floss, and rinse with antibacterial mouth wash or saline water.
A misshaped, discolored, or chipped teeth do not necessarily need to be extracted as long as the root is intact and unaffected. Some of the options include dental veneers and dental crowns.Dental crowns encase a tooth entirely giving it strength, keeping it composed, and eclipsing its misshapenness. Crows can be placed on any tooth regardless of its place.Dental veneers, on the other hand, do not fully Incase a tooth. Instead, they are cap-like structures that cover the front part of the tooth, which is why they are only used on the front teeth.
The average life span of dental veneers can peak around 5-10 years with proper care. The cap-like structures are not inherently destructible and need to be attended to maintain their composition. Dental crowns have a lifespan of 5-15 years. Again with good oral hygiene practices and avoiding using teeth as tools can extend the lifespan of crowns or veneers to the threshold.
Root infections are typically attended to with a root canal treatment. A surgical procedure that involves the drilling of the tooth down to the infected root, and later vacuuming the infected parts out. The root is then sealed with some gutta-percha to prevent bacteria from penetrating the root another time. That being said, what remains from the root is entirely dependent on the depth and extent of the infection.The crown is restored with a typical crown. If the root is extracted, your dentist will discuss the available restorative options for your case.
At the Vera Clinic, the dentists offer a versatile range of anesthetic options. In most cases, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the treated area so patients do not feel any form of pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. Often times, general anesthesia is required, and sometimes sedatives. Sedatives do not numb the patient or put them to sleep. The effects of sedation are all over the body and the patient is overwhelmed with feelings of comfort and tranquility. Sedation is an ideal option for patients with dentistry-related phobias as patients have no memory of the procedure when the effects of sedation wear off.
Jaw reconstructive surgery is not always necessary. In some instances, the jaw realignment can be fixed with orthodontics. Surgery is almost a last resort and is needed in extreme cases, or cases were proper alignment cannot be achieved through braces.
The duration of treatment with braces varies from one individual to another depending on the severity of misalignment. Typically, the shortest period is 6 months and the longest is 30 months.
