The Latest in Facelift Surgery – a Younger Face in 1 Hour

Many women would like to have a cosmetic facelift surgery but many are worried that they would not be happy with the results. There is no turning back after the surgery. Many also say that such a cosmetic surgery would be too expensive for them.

For these two reasons non-surgery facelifts are booming. A 40% rise in 2007 is expected in facelifts without a surgery. In fact, many surgeons will tell women who consider a facelift surgery actually do not need one. Injectables and fillers are another option and can bring some great results quickly.

However, not everything can be treated with injections. The biggest problem is sagging skin when you get older. A surgery might be the only option to treat this problem. And achieving the biggest dream of most women, which is looking younger for at least 10 years, you will need more than just a few injections.

The latest trend is a new technique which is not a traditional facelift surgery but still offers longer lasting success than simple injections. It’s called CounterLift. A CounterLift just takes about 1 hour and the recovery time is much shorter compared to a traditional facelift. There is also good news on the financial side of this new procedure. A CounterLift just costs about the half.

So how does this less-invasive new facelift surgery actually work? The CounterLift fills a missing gap in facelift surgery. Women in the age between 35 and 45 are usually not ready for a full facelift. For them the CounterLift is a perfect solution. Injections are helpful to fight wrinkles but can not do anything against sagging skin. Here the CounterLift will pull sagging skin together, well below the top layers of the skin so that no visible scarring can happen.

This new facelift procedure is much less invasive and gives the plastic surgeon more freedom to re-shape the face as well. It allows him to manipulate certain sections of the face without affecting others.

If you want to look much younger but were always worried about getting a full facelift surgery, you might find this new and cheaper technique appealing. Ask your cosmetic surgeon about this new facelift technique. It is not available everywhere yet but worth a look.

Employing Deviated Septum Rhinoplasty For Fixing Your Malformed Septum

Anyone who feels something unusual in his body has reasons to be concerned. And if the issue is about difficulty in breathing, it only increases the need to be alarmed because anything that hampers proper breathing is considered as extremely perilous.

Depending on the origin and the cause of the problem, medication or surgery may be required to solve the issue. However, when the problem with breathing was caused by irregularities in the nasal passages, surgery is the most likely solution to rectify any defects in the passages.

Regardless, the septum is what divides your nasal passages into two routes. This section of your nose is what channels the flow of air that you breathe and it is composed of thin bones and cartilages. This should be straight and positioned in the right place, otherwise, it will greatly affect the flow of the air when you breathe.

Moreover, there are people whose septum is not in the right vertical position. The deviated septum may have been inborn or a result of an injury that was not properly fixed. You must know that this misshapen part of your nose plays an important part in helping you experience real comfort along with sense of security that you will be able to continue breathing without problems and so you must not ignore this problem.

Take note that a deviated septum can initially lead to small issues such as snoring which cannot really be considered as damaging but will definitely disturb you and the person sleeping by your side.

On the more serious side, this abnormality can also be life-threatening because it can trigger sleep apnea – a sleeping disorder that can break off your breathing. Not being able to breathe for longer periods will deprived your body of the oxygen that it needs. Finally, with the lack of oxygen, extreme consequences will surely follow.

But there is good news, there is an available surgery that can correct this nasal problem and it is called the deviated septum rhinoplasty. To undergo with this procedure, you have to consult a doctor first to find out the exact detail of how the septum turn out to be a problem. The extent of the defect will also be look at and analyze by the surgeon so as to figure out the best surgical approach for your case.

The surgery usually lasts from 1 – 1½ hours. Most rhinosplasty surgeries cost around $3000 – $5000 but you can spend less as there are insurance providers who cover this type of procedure. You will also find 100% sponsorship which you have to repay through monthly installment plans. Finally, be sure to go to a reputable doctor so that you will get the best treatment.

Are Fake Boobs Attractive? 3 Signs You May Be Wasting Your Time / Money

I’m not female, so I don’t have any concept of the level of anxiety many women must go through about their bodies.

To add to this, male obsessiveness and infatuation with how women look often stokes the already burning feelings of inadequacy.

The key is that if a woman’s breasts are not seen as “full” or “large”, many feel self-conscious.

And whilst having an hour-glass figure is not that big of a deal anymore (as opposed to when women used to get laced into whalebone corsets), the idea of “big boobs” certainly is.

This need often pushes many women toward breast enlargement surgery – with implants. Implications & health aside, the aesthetics of this procedure has often received varying consensus around the world.

The key thing to appreciate is that if you’ve artificially inflated the size of your breasts, they are not going to be as soft, supple and “feminine” as they would be if they were natural.

This may not be news; the point is that if you’re looking at getting “bigger boobs” – there may be different ways to achieve the same result… such has having push-up bras etc.

To this end, there are a number of things to consider about getting breast enhancements which may indicate you’re wasting your time/money. Obviously, the majority of women who undergo the procedure have done extensive research and likely have the support of a long-term partner; if you’re doing it just to attract a partner, it’s likely going to be a bad decision…

1. Body Image Changes With Age

If you’re 21, your perception of what “flaws” you have are going to be completely different to if you’re 41+.

Of course, no young woman ever wants to think about what might happen to her body in 20+ years, but it’s necessary when considering the advantages (or not) of breast enhancement.

I liken it to tattoos – they look great when you’re young; the moment you start to age, they begin to fade and become unsightly. Whilst breast implants won’t do that, you have to understand that the elasticity of your breasts is going to completely change as you age.

In other words, if you’re basing your choice (to get implants) around what you look like now, you’re likely getting them for the wrong reasons.

By all means – if you are genuinely interested in getting them for your self esteem – there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it… but to go through the whole process, upheaval and having to maintain them just (let’s be real) to catch the eye of a young mate, you’re likely going to have issues later in life.

You have to consider the longer-term consequences (not just that they’ll make “that cute bikini” look good on the beach).

2. Health Implications

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’ve read into the obvious health implications of the surgery etc.

However, what most people don’t appreciate is the “peripheral” health implications for the likes of your back, skin etc.

A number of women have reported large amounts of sagging (which accelerates with the larger the implants), and some have even said that their implants came away from their skin (very painful).

If you have a baby, it’s also questionable as to whether you’ll be able to breast feed (some can, some can’t).

The point is – if you are seriously considering the procedure – please make sure you consult with all the “other” complications which can arise.

3. They Won’t Attract A Long Term Partner

Sure, women with enhanced breasts certainly turn heads… but they’re not real.

This alludes to the fact that you may well attract a partner with the enhancements, but it doesn’t mean they’ll stick around.

As a man, let me say up front that you can tell if a girl’s had work done. I don’t care at all, but it does denote a number of indicators of her personality.

Maybe she felt inadequate before, maybe she needed to do it for work (if she aspired to be a model or actress) – or (more likely than you’d imagine) – maybe she’s fishing for a millionaire.

A lot of women are just as bad as men when it comes to judging based on looks alone. Perhaps not as many women, but they’re generally much more affected by prior emotional issues (maybe she was in an abusive relationship, had issues with her parents etc) – leading many of them to become completely paranoid about their appearance (again, out of a feeling of inadequacy). These are typically the women who end up getting “duck face” lip injections and all sorts of other work.

The point is that women generally get sex quite easily (easier than men anyway). The true test of whether she’s “playing the game” as well as possible is whether she’s able to encourage her partner(s) to stay interested in her after she’s “given up the goods”.

Quite lurid, but it means that if you enhance your looks without indulging in your personality, hobbies, passions and general “value” beyond what people see, you’re likely going to end up worse off.

Ultimately, I can only offer an opinion on something as personal and delicate as this topic.

However, from my experience, whilst enhanced breasts are definitely a benefit in the “material” realm, when it comes to “true love”, they have very little affect… unless you’re actually that way inclined anyway.

Nipple Deformities – Simple Plastic Surgery Corrections

Nipples are as variable as the size and shape of breasts. No two nipples are ever exactly alike, usually not even on the same person. While much breast reshaping (breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift) goes on in plastic surgery, many men and women suffer from nipple deformities as well which also affects their self-esteem. Nipples can stick out too much, can be turned in, or the areola (the colored area surrounding the nipple) can be too large. Some of these nipple problems may affect certain breast functions such as feeling or lactation. The good news is that there are some very simple plastic surgery procedures that are quite effective at improving these problems.

For the sake of clarification, what most call the nipple is actually two different structures. The true nipple is the central projecting skin area that has both enhanced sensation and milk ducts for lactation. The flatter, almost always more pigmented, skin around the true nipple is called the areola.

Nipple inversion (shy nipple) affects about 2% of the population, more commonly in women than men. Some nipples can be turned in slightly or to a significant degree. Some people are born with nipple inversion, others occur later often after breastfeeding. In rare instances, a tumor may be pulling the nipple inward and this should be ruled out particularly if it occurs later in life and just on one breast. Correction involves a simple procedure done under local anesthesia. The nipple is released and brought out. The biggest problem with nipple inversion correction is relapse, the nipple losing projection and returning to an inward position. Nipple inversion surgery can also be done at the time of other breast surgery. I usually like to delay repair in the case of breast augmentation until later as the implant may help to push out some nipples, making correction unnecessary.

Enlarged nipples often create visible ‘headlights’ which can be a source of embarrassment for many women. This can also be an issue for some men. An overly projecting nipple can be easily reduced through a wedge excision or a ‘ring’ reduction approach. Sensation and the ability for milk production can be preserved with either technique. Done under local anesthesia, nipple reductions are very stable and are not associated with any significant relapse.

“Puffy” nipples can occur in women and are usually associated with the tubular breast deformity. In this nipple problem, the areola and the nipple are pushed outward due to an underlying herniation or protrusion of breast tissue. Correction of this problem is slightly more complex than isolated nipple surgery. It is usually treated as part of tubular breast surgery which involves the use of a breast implant and areolar manipulation. This is treated by making an incision around the areola, removing some of the pigmented skin (if needed), and lifting the areola skin up and decreasing the projection (puffiness). This is a more extensive surgery and requires an operative room experience under anesthesia.

Large or wide areolas are extremely common in big breasts. Usually the size of the areola is related to the size of the breast, but not always. Large areolas are commonly reduced as part of breast reduction surgery. They can be reduced independent of a breast reduction through the periareolar approach. By removing a ring of the outer areola, the circular diameter of the areola is narrowed. Due the tightness of breast skin, there is a limit as to how much the areola can be reduced. This procedure results in a scar at the junction of the areola and skin which occasionally widens and requires secondary revisional surgery.

Liposuction – Looking to Lose That Pudge? Consider Liposuction Surgery

We are getting fatter. At least that is what the news reports seem to say every time we turn around. In the United States there is a sizable majority that is…well… sizable! People turn to diet and exercise to slim down but often will reduce their fat down to a stubborn pocket that simply refuses to leave. For these people, Liposuction surgery can help them get rid of the unwanted fat.

What is Liposuction anyway? Liposuction is a surgical procedure which removes fatty tissue (i.e. – adipose tissue) from beneath the epidermis (i.e. – skin). Liposuction surgery is performed by creating small incisions in the skin and then inserting a steel tube, called a cannula, into the tissue to be removed. The fat is then removed via a strong vacuum. The procedure involves the liposuction surgeon’s skill in determining where to move the cannula and how long to suck out fat in a particular location. A good surgeon can give your body a slimmer looking shape by making sure the fat is removed evenly.

Liposuction is performed anywhere where fat is deposited in large quantities. Areas such as the abdomen, breasts, back, arms and legs are the most common areas that are reshaped by liposuction surgery.

Liposuction is not a weight loss alternative however. Liposuction is best applied on patients who have gotten back in shape and now need to remove some of the last remaining pockets of fat. Liposuction surgeons will counsel every potential client to make sure that they are eating a proper diet and getting plenty of exercise before they opt for liposuction surgery.

If you are one of the people who are a perfect candidate for Liposuction and you want to remove that final “pudge” once and for all, you might consider Liposuction surgery as a way to banish it from your body.
