Often referred to as the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” this type of buttock augmentation uses liposuction to take unwanted fat from such areas as the stomach, thighs, flanks, and lower back and uses them to provide fuller, more shapely and attractive buttocks. 

This procedure is often referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift“ and it will not only reshape the buttock region, it can also reshape the entire lower back and hips in order to creating an overall more aesthetically pleasing silhouette and body contour.

With thanks to the revolutionary developments over the last ten years, we are now living in a golden age for anti-ageing treatments that really do work!

There have never been so may effective ways to look younger with out going under the knife. Nowadays we can improve our looks with out breaking the bank and with increasingly popular minimally invasive or non-surgical almost pain free techniques with low down time.

What makes these treatments so credible?

  • Scienfically approved and researched treatments for dermal fillers and BOTOX
  • Always only use a registered and licensed plastic surgeon for your safety – this means your doctor technical training

But how can you be sure they work and really how much do or don’t they hurt?

BOTOX

Botox inhibits the ability for muscles to contract and reduces those pesky dymanic wrinkles or laughter lines. It’s adminstrated with a tiny needle that hurts no more than a mosquito bite for a few seconds. Numbing cream can also be used if you really feel you prefer not to feel it.

Fillers to hydrate sculpt and plump up your lips or creases.

Used by millions Restylane boasts of having created the HA filler.

In the late 1980s, Swedish scientist and entrepreneur Bengt Ågerup had a vision to bring his scientific work on HA out of the lab and into the real world. Ågerup and his fellow scientists wanted to find a way to restore skin moisture and structure by creating a product that could deliver naturally occurring HA into the skin. It had to be safe – closely resembling natural HA so that it would not be detected by the body as a foreign substance and cause an immune reaction – and offer long-lasting results.

The product was Restylane, the world’s first stabilised non-animal HA filler.

And the innovation didn’t stop there. Since the first product was launched in 1996,  a range of products is now available with carefully calculated properties to suit patients’ individual needs. This has included creating products with diverse textures to offer different levels of lift or volume, and products specifically formulated to deliver skin hydration. [Source : https://restylane.co.uk/our-story]

HYALURONIC ACID (HA) AND AGEING

Restylane products are based on a sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid, or HA, which is naturally found in our bodies and offers support and structure to our tissues.

HA keeps our skin hydrated and firm, through its unique ability to bind water molecules; it also provides support and structure to the skin and protects it from damage. However, as we age the natural production of HA by our bodies slows down. This means that our skin can become thinner, dehydrated and less firm, losing its radiance and youthful appearance.

At the same time, the natural ageing process drives changes to the underlying bone structure of the face, which can lead to a lack of definition in facial contours, such as our cheeks [Source : https://restylane.co.uk/our-story]

HERE ARE THREE MAJOR KINDS OF ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS

  1. Resurfacing
    Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing modify the surface of the skin to correct visible signs of sun damage, such as fine lines, irregular pigmentation and blemishes.
  2. Injectables
    Toxins, traditional fillers (hyaluronic acid) and collagen stimulators are injected into facial areas to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore facial contours – the Liquid facelift or 8 Point Lift8 Point Lift8 Point Lift. PRP Platelet Rich Plasma – Vampire lift.
  3. Surgery
    A wide range of surgical procedures exist,  face lifts and fat transfers, which are used to remove excess fat, lift severely sagging skin or fill facial hollows. These are  invasive types of treatment.

Besides wrinkling and gravity, volume loss to the face has become increasingly recognised as an important component to the ageing process, which can be restored with either HA fillers in the clinic or facial fat grafting surgery.

All about cosmetic surgery in Sri Lanka

Having a plastic surgery is a personal choice and requires you to do your research. I’ve worked in the internationl centre of one of Colombo’s private hospitals and I’ve seen how Sri Lankan Plastic Surgeons Dr Dulip and Dr Thushan have transformed lives with the latest techniques and treatments for cosmetic surgery.

Keen to find out what’s possible? Please read on..

Liposuction

The fat of the excess matter

Liposuction is not cosmetic surgery, beauty therapy or a quick cure for obesity. Smriti Daniel finds out when it is considered medically viable and who can benefit from it.

Consultant Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thushan  has a firm ‘not possible’ for anyone who has ever harboured the fantasy of a quick session of liposuction as a cure for their obesity.

The surgery is meant to sculpt the contours of your body (hence it’s alternate title of ‘liposculpture’), and not to manage weight loss. You’ll have to shed your pounds the hard way, says DrThushan, adding that liposuction, however, has its own place – it can help you deal with “resistant” fat deposits which defy exercise and dieting.

In fact, in Sri Lanka, a majority of DrThushan’s patients are not those aspiring to stardom but teenage males with gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement. Ashamed of their condition, his young patients are unable to participate in many everyday activities, such as swimming, with their peers. The success of the surgery lies then in how the patient feels after it’s done – confident enough to pursue their chosen lifestyle.

Beating the bulge

Anyone who has ever struggled with their weight knows that there are parts of your body that seem to have a mind of their own. Plastic surgeons recognize these sites as the most popular candidates for liposuction – the flanks (love handles) and buttocks, the back, the waist and abdomen, legs (ankles, calves and thighs), upper arms, breasts, chest, the neck. Your surgeon might also recommend liposuction as a way to create a more natural skin contour at the site of a previous surgery or trauma.
During liposuction, fat deposits are removed using thin metal tubes called cannulas.

The tube is connected to a clear plastic hose, which leads to the suction source. The surgeon inserts the cannula either into the layers of deep fat or superficial fat, and manipulates it in a specific pattern depending on the area being treated. The intention is to reduce the amount of fat in that area, not to remove all of it. This is because fat is an important tissue and plays a key role in skin shape and firmness – remove all of it and you’ll be left with loose skin and “dents”.

Realistic expectations

Liposuction falls under the category of “elective surgeries” – it’s a matter of personal choice and not a medical necessity. It also comes with no guarantees. As with all plastic surgery, the success of liposuction will depend on a number of factors unique to each individual — weight, age, skin elasticity and overall health must all be considered. Weight is a surprisingly crucial point of consideration – you may only be eligible for liposuction if your Body Mass Index is at or near ideal standards. If you are more than 15 kg overweight, you’d do better to head for the gym before you consider surgery.

Why is weight such an issue? The answer has much to do with how your body responds under anaesthesia — obesity, along with other elements such as smoking habits, can place your life at risk.
Many of Dr. Thushan’s patients are below the age of 40, when the skin is still supple enough to shape itself to the new contours he creates. And getting liposuction itself need not result in a flat tummy or taunt buttocks, not if the underlying muscles are weak.

Liposuction is often combined with other procedures such as tummy tuck, says DrThushan. Liposuction alone may not be appropriate for people with large hanging folds of skin that may need to be surgically removed, as in the case of  “tummy tucks”, breast reductions, breast lifts or face lifts. Liposuction does not improve cellulite (the cause of the dimpled skin covering the buttocks and thighs), nor does it remove stretch marks.

Poorly controlled diabetes, any infection, heart or circulation problems generally disqualify one for the procedure because these conditions interfere with healing and recovery.

Types of liposuction

Though there are several types of liposuction, including the dry technique (not generally recommended because of heavy blood loss associated with the procedure) and the ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (not currently performed in Sri Lanka), the tumescent liposuction procedure is considered a safe, popular and effective technique.

Here, the surgeon injects large quantities of fluid, usually a diluted mix that includes a local anaesthetic and a capillary constrictor, into subcutaneous fat. Together with specific medications, this liquid reduces localised bleeding. The fat cells swell with fluid, becoming swollen and firm, or tumescent. The surgeon inserts and manipulates the cannula and uses suction to remove much of the fatty tissue and most of the injected fluid. The rest is absorbed into the body.

Healing and recovery

Recovery from liposuction is relatively quick – and many patients are up and about within 2-3 days. If you’re recovering from a tummy tuck as well, however, it’s likely to take longer. Swelling and bruising are to be expected, but both will subside within weeks following the surgery. After liposuction, an elastic compression garment may be recommended to help reduce the thickness of the fat layer and reduce swelling caused by the procedure.

Weight gains, weight loss, as well as fluid retention all affect how successful your liposuction surgery is in the long term. While a specific area treated by liposuction is less likely to increase to its former size because it has fewer fat cells, the surgery doesn’t mean you can forego all dieting and exercising. If food intake is not controlled following liposuction, fat tissue is likely to increase at other sites across the body, and you’ll be back to square one. Liposuction works best in those who exercise regularly and control their diets.
