Tips And Treatments To Combat Dry Skin During Eid

Dry skin rings major trouble for people worldwide. Not only it is prone to early aging. But also it cannot withstand weather changes! Many do not know that each weather affects the skin and dry skin treatment also differs in each season. So to manage your skin during Eid we got a better plan to help you understand your skin type and its needs!

What’s Your Skin Type?

People face many changes in their skin due to changes in hormones, weather, and age. But essentially, a few conditions can guide the skin type easily.

Normal Skin

Normal skin is neither dry nor too oily. It looks good mostly all the time. Mostly a normal skin has

  • Even complexion
  • Almost no open pores
  • No acne
  • No sensitivity

Combination Skin Type

This one is also called a T-Zone skin. A larger population of the world has a combination skin that requires different care methodology. You see on this skin

  • Enlarged pores
  • More blackheads
  • Shiny skin in certain areas

Dry Skin Type

Skin with a lack of moisture is dry skin in essence. How it looks like can change with many factors such as weather, diet, etc. But basically, it seems like

  • Minimal or no pores
  • More lines
  • Rough and dry skin appearance

Oily Skin Type

Oily skin is shiny and greasy most of the time. It shows the following signs

  • Visibly enlarged pores
  • Shiny dull complexion
  • Acne, blemishes, and blackheads

Sensitive Skin Type

This is the troubled skin. It gets triggered easily. Mostly you find this kind with

  • Symptoms of burning, itching
  • Dryness
  • Redness

If you have dry skin, you must know dry skincare has to be regular. And this year as Eid falls in a warm hot season, you should do a double check on your skincare during Eid.

Moisturize Your Skin

Dry skin is parched and thirsty if not given the nourishment it will go flaky and itchy. During Eid, when you have guests coming over and food to make, please remember moisturizing your skin. A few pointers for you to remember!

  •  Use a dry skin cream on your body daily. The best is to apply it right after a shower so your body locks in the essential moisture inside. This is a best practice to fight the dry skin of the body.
  • Invest in the best dry skin serum that suits you and try to use it after washing your face.
  •  If you are not fond of these serums consult your dermatologist and find the skin lotion (old school) or a good cream for dry skin that is best for you.
  • You can also use an overnight hydrating mask for the extra moisture tucked into your skin.

You can wisely invest in your skin with PRP and Mesotherapy that augments your skin structure by injecting essential minerals and vitamins for your skin hydration and health.

Use A Sunscreen

All skins need protection from the sun. The harsh summer sun only aggravates the skin further. The sunlight coming from the windows or the heat in the kitchen also needs to be addressed. Wear your sunscreen daily to treat dry skin.

Be Makeup Wise

For the dry skin on your face, you have to be wary of your make-up choices and removing techniques.

  • Try to use fragrance-free products
  • Prep your face with a dry skin moisturizer or cream as a rule.
  • Use gel-based primer and loose powder at the beginning and end of your makeup routine.
  • Remove the makeup with the gentlest removers for dry skin that your dermatologist approves of!
  • Buy the best soap for dry skin to wash it all off after the remover is used.
  • Not all people can use retinol at night. Therefore, get a better nighttime routine from your dermatologist.

You all will meet people during eid, so taking good care of your makeup routine during the festive season will keep you away from acne and breakouts later!

Drink More Water

Do you know the moisturizer for your skin is water! Yes, hydrate and drink plenty of water during Eid. After Ramadan, the habit of fasting stays for a while. Therefore, do remember to keep on having a glass of water while working or watching TV because it is back to the old routine.

Swimming Routine

With summer during Eid, you might be heading to a resort! Please remember chlorine strips off all oils from the skin. And, if you have dry skin, then you need to moisturize your face and body. As well as coat it with a good sunblock to prevent chlorine from seeping in.

Avoid Warm Baths

The warm relaxing long baths are not good for your skin. Hot water opens the pores and for dry skin treatment, it is an arch-nemesis as it further dries out your skin. So to relax and unwind during Eid, opt for short cold showers and more me-time with a good book or Netflix.

Humidifier

While you might go for a spa day or some exquisite facial for dry skin treatment, you are ignoring that air conditioning also dries out your skin. Living in UAE, we know there is no way without an air conditioner. However, constant exposure to an AC is bad for your skin. So invest in a humidifier that reduces the dryness in the atmosphere and makes your skin better!

Pamper Your Skin

To flaunt the best skin this Eid, why not go to the right people and not some unknown salons for the facial. The experts who have studied skin science and give customized facial therapies as per your skin type are an ideal way to combat dry skin. You will turn out looking hydrated, rejuvenated, and glowing with healthy skin!

Foods To Avoid

Certainly, Eid is a time to feast with friends. However, you can manage dry skin with diet too. First of all, always include vegetables and fruits and reduce processed foods and meat. Yeah, we know that but what you should be more worried about is what to avoid for aggravating that peeling skin on your face.

  • Alcohol
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Coffee

Try to keep the above in moderation so that, there is no trouble on your skin!

Follow our dry skincare tips during Eid and see that there will be a better skin situation for you. Do not forget to pamper your skin and your loved ones this Eid!

What is Botox treatment?

Before gifting Botox as a valentines’ gift you should have a profound idea about the treatment. It is a cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of ageing symptoms like wrinkles and fine lines. Doctors use this treatment to resolve neck spasms, excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, lazy eyes, and overactive bladder. Botox injection also treats chronic migraines.
Botox protein is extracted from Botulinum toxin A that has the ability to temporarily prevent muscle movements. Bacteria produce this toxin which causes botulism poisoning.
Botox comes in the different forms of different brands, known as Dysport, Myobloc, Xeomin. Each product is slightly different from the other particularly in the matter of dosage units which is not changeable.
.

How does it work?

Botox is a neurotoxin in nature. Neurotoxin means it targets the nervous system that disrupts the nerve signalling process which stimulates muscle contraction. This is the simple process of temporary muscle paralysis. 
The nerve releases acetylcholine, a chemical messenger to contract targeted muscle. Acetylcholine connects to receptors on the muscle cell which encourages cells of the targeted area to contract.
Botox injection blocks the release of acetylcholine that stops muscle cells from contracting. 

Cosmetic application of Botox injection

In the USA, scientists produce four to five million Botox proteins every year. Why? Because of its immense demand as an effective anti-ageing treatment. It is a promising treatment to neutralize deep wrinkles on your face like smile lines, worry lines, chin dimpling, vertical lip lines. 
These deep grooves appear due to repeat contractions over time and they are difficult to eliminate.
Botox injections come in different brands with different dosage units, such as Xeomin, Dysport, and Juvederm. All these neurotoxins force muscles to relax, therefore skin remains flat, and your face looks smooth and youthful for the next two to six months. Botox treatment not only eliminates deep lines but also prevent them to form again.
You can see a noticeable result within 15 days. 

Let’s see some common use of Botox treatment.

Cervical dystonia: It is a very painful condition where your neck muscle gets contracted which causes your head to twist or turn into a very uncomfortable condition.

Lazy eye: The prime cause of lazy eye is the imbalance in the muscles around the eyes

Hyperhidrosis: It is the problem of excessive sweating even when the temperature is not very hot, or you are not doing any intense workout.

Cosmetically the Botox injection can be used in the areas such as the mid position of eyebrows or glabellar region. Botox effectively treat moderate to severe frown lines, also treat lines at end of the eyes, also known as crow’s feet lines.

9 Tips to Permanently Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes

Although a dark eye circle is not a life-threatening problem, it would make you look sleepy and tired. Isn’t it? Men and women struggle with dark circles because of stress, anxiety, tension, and lack of sleep. However, we can resolve dark circles on our own gradually. Dark circle removal is a time-consuming process. Thus, you need to keep patience.

Dark circles under our eyes develop while the skin underneath both eyes get darkened. There are so many factors responsible for the dark circle. With dark circles, we look tired and older. However, it can be treated through home remedies: over-the-counter eye cream, eye-soothing gel, medical interventions, and cosmetic surgery procedures.

In this article, we will give you nine effective tips to wipe out the dark circles around your eyes permanently. Keep reading to learn more.

What Causes Dark circles?

There are a lot of elements responsible for having dark circles. You have to identify what is yours. 

When you find out the actual reason, you can work on that to remove the dark circles under the eyes. In maximum cases, lifestyle plays a crucial role. If an individual leads an unhealthy lifestyle, he will undoubtedly develop dark circles. Lack of sleep and oversleeping both cause dark circles; apart from the inappropriate sleeping pattern, there are a lot of factors that develop dark circles such as smoking, sunburn, allergies, aging, tiredness, sickness.
You can’t remove dark circles altogether, but several home remedies and medical interventions are available to minimize their appearance.

Nine effective methods that practically remove dark circles under the eyes

Getting Minimum eight-hour sleep

Lack of sleep is the fast reason to develop dark circles; You will notice dark eye circles when you do not have quality sleep for long days. Lack of sleep or poor sleep patterns worsen dark circles under the eyes. Scientific studies have proved that adequate rest and good general health reduce the darkness gradually.

.

Try a cold compress

Cold compress effectively reduces swelling and shrinks dilated blood vessels. Try this remedy at home. Please take a few ice cubes, wrap them in a clean washcloth, then apply it under your eyes for three to five minutes. If you don’t have ice, you can wet cotton cloth in cold water and place it on the skin of your eyes. Do not put intense pressure. Dab it gently for about 20 minutes. Another easy alternative to cold compression is eye gel masks. You can use it easily. The eye gel mask is available in any medical store; keep it in the freezer before use until it becomes ready to use. Apply it for 10 minutes.

Elevate your head while sleeping

Experts always ask to elevate your head while sleeping. If you wake up with dark circles, this option is highly effective for you. While you promote your head during sleep, it is a scientific fact that this will keep fluid from pooling under the eyes throughout the night and prevent puffiness, inflammation, and swelling. Puffiness also creates shadows beneath your lower eyelid, which eventually gives you the appearance of a dark circle. 

Apply tea bags

Cool green tea bags effectively reduce swelling and puffiness because tea is enriched with antioxidants that gradually shrink blood vessels and improve blood circulation under the eyes. Take a used green tea bag and freeze it for 10 minutes, then apply it under your eyes for 30 minutes. It not only removes dark circles but also tightens the under-eye skin.

Avoid sun exposure

If you are already struggling with dark circles, you must avoid sun exposure. UV rays of the sun speed up the aging process and eventually worsen dark circles under the eyes. You have to protect your eyes with sunglasses, apply moisturizer-based sunscreens, and wear a hat covering your forehead and face. 

Take allergy medicines

Itchiness and allergies develop dark circles. When we rub them, our eyes become irritated, puffy which makes shadows. In these cases, you need to talk with the doctor, and he might recommend you antihistamine to reduce allergy symptoms. But it is not a remedy if your dark circles are not developed due to itchiness.

Try skin brighteners

You can use skin brightening serum like vitamin C and Niacinamide serum, which gradually fade away the black patches. You can also use skin brightening cream, gels that gradually reduce excessive melanin production around your eyes.

Consider laser therapy

Cosmetic surgery invents a non-surgical treatment to alleviate dark circles under your eyes. 
Laser therapy decreases melanin production around the eyes. In Laser therapy, a mild light beam is applied to the undereye area to increase collagen production and reduce pigmentation.

Filler is an excellent alternative to laser therapy.

Filler is a good substitution for laser treatment. Filler adds necessary volume under the eyes to decrease the presence of shadows and decrease under-eye hollowing. Here experts use small injections of fluid-like hyaluronic acid under the eyes to lift the skin’s surface, increase space between the skin and under-eye blood vessels, and alleviate the presence of dark circles beneath the eyes. The process should be done in a medical office under local anesthesia.

Takeaway

Apart from external reasons, there is some internal reason responsible for dark circles under the eyes, which home remedies cannot resolve. You must seek medical help. If you suffer from mental or physical problems, don’t ignore them. You need medical help to cure from inside because poor psychological and physical health also contributes to dark circles under the eyes.

How to deal with hyperpigmentation

Like fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, hyperpigmentation is a common skin problem that develops in the face and body. Hyperpigmentation is when a dark spot appears on your skin. It can appear anywhere on the face, neck, and other parts of your body. Hyperpigmentation constantly interrupts our beauty, and we want to hide them through makeup products like high coverage foundation and concealer. But it is not a permanent solution. Thus people are always looking for a permanent solution to get rid of dark spots or hyper-pigmentations.
In this article, we will talk about the most advanced solution to significantly remove hyperpigmentation. But before that, we will define the skin concern and point out why it happens.

What is hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation refers to dark patches and spots on the skin of the face and body. It is different from sunspots, acne scars, and freckles.

It is due to the overproduction of skin pigments. Our skin color forms from melanin pigment, but if our skin cells start to overproduce melanin at a particular area, it causes dark patches known as hyperpigmentation.

Dermatologists categorize hyperpigmentation into three main types: post-inflammatory, age-spot, and melasma.

The first one can develop after any skin inflammation, including Eczema, ringworm, eczema, rashes. Age spot-associated hyperpigmentation develops typically due to aging and excessive sun exposure. It has been scientifically proven that UV rays of the sun potentially stimulate our pigment-producing cells, for which they start forming excess melanin. Even a simple bug bite can result in a dark spot that would last for weeks. Basically, any trauma to our skin develops hyperpigmentation.

Can hyperpigmentation be reversed?

Yes. This dermatological condition can be reversed. If you have a mild dark spot, you can opt for home remedies, but it is time-consuming. However, the medical cosmetology field has developed advanced treatments that effectively reduce hyperpigmentation within a short period.
 
 

Treatment options are discussed below:

Chemical peel: Dermatologists use acid to treat hyperpigmentation in chemical peel treatment. This particular acid fades away the appearance of hyperpigmentation by eliminating the epidermis. They’re all different kinds of over-the-counter chemical peels available. But you must consider professional-grade peels at a dermatologist’s clinic. These are more effective and bring quick results.

Who should try chemical peel?

Chemical peels are effective for patients who have sun damage, blotchy skin, age spots, and melasma. The treatment offers the best result for fairer skin tones.

Laser peel or skin-resurfacing:  Here, laser experts use a targeted light beam to decrease hyperpigmentation. There are two types of laser treatment available: non-ablative and ablative. In the non-ablative procedure, the laser beam targets the dermis to stimulate collagen production and tighten. On the other hand, the ablative laser is intense, which involves removing a layer of your skin, and offers a more dramatic result.

Both ablative and non-ablative lasers destroy excess pigments of your skin and promote regeneration of new cells, which provide a tight and toned finish.

Who should try this?

Ablative laser is perfect for people with fair skin, whereas non-ablative laser treatment is appropriate for people with dark skin. Before choosing any of these lasers, please consult with a certified dermatologist. He will assess your skin condition then recommend the practical option.

Intense Pulse Light therapy (IPL):  It is a non-ablative or fractional laser therapy specially designed for hyperpigmentation. It is also popular as a photo facial. IPL-therapy promotes collagen production within the dermis layer. You need multiple sessions to remove it altogether. Flat dark brown spots especially respond to this treatment. IPL treatment also reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, wrinkles, and spider veins.

Who should try this treatment?

IPL treatment works well on fair skin people.

Dermabrasion: Dermabrasion hyperpigmentation involves the elimination of your epidermis; However, its consequence gradually affects your dermis layer. Dermabrasion is highly effective to remove acne-associated hyperpigmentation. It also improves the appearance of wrinkles, large pores, and textured skin conditions such as age spots, acne scars, sun damage, injury scars, chickenpox scars.

In Dermabrasion, your dermatologist uses a drill-like hand-made tool with a wire brush. They will gently move this tool around your skin to eliminate the dermis’s entire epidermis and external layer.

Who should try this?

It works best for fair to medium skin tone.

Which treatment is appropriate for which skin tone?

Skin tone plays a crucial role in hyperpigmentation treatment. The treatment options are different for fair, medium, and dark skin tone people,

Fair skin responds well in high beam laser and IPL therapy
Medium skin reacts well to Dermabrasion and chemical peeling.
Dark skin people are strictly advised not to use high-intensity lasers, and they can use low-intensity lasers over a more significant number of sessions. Dermatologists generally recommend OTC lightening creams, Glycolic acid, and low-strength chemical peels.

Takeaway

Before choosing any treatment, you need to consult with a certified and experienced dermatologist to help you identify the root cause of hyperpigmentation. No matter which treatment option you select, you need to protect your skin from further damage from the sun and any skin trauma. After treatment, you will get a skin-protecting regimen from your expert. You should strictly follow it.

    There is a device that delivers heat in the body (radiofrequency) that can lead to the disappearance of cellulite on the skin. It can lead to diminishing cellulite in most cases. But several sessions are required for the therapy to show the desired results. This is a nonablative treatment and hence requires repeated sessions.

  • Acoustic Wave Therapy

    The gel is applied to the skin and a small handheld device is run on the impacted area of the skin. The device sends sound waves inside the body that causes the breaking of cellulite. Again, this too requires repeated sessions to see the difference in the skin appearance.

  • Surgery

Different ways Men can prioritize their mental health

Why is mental health always associated with mental sickness? The fact is that having a mental sickness and mental health are two different aspects and mixing or confusing both to be the same will not help you. Having optimum mental health will help you lead a balanced life. But if your mental state is not happy, confused, or stressed; then the impact will directly hit your other aspects and areas of life. Your professional and personal life will suffer if you do not take your mental health seriously. Often men find it more difficult to handle stress than women. Moreover, the associated personal and professional life tensions add to their unbalanced behaviour leading to problems. Hence, it is essential to follow ways to prioritize your mental health.

Covid-19 has taken a toll on everyone’s mental health. Some have successfully taken control of their lives in these stressful and tough times while some have shown their weaker side. Loss of job, dear and near ones, income instability is some of the reasons for stress and imbalanced mental health. The change in the behaviour pattern of people during the pandemic has witnessed a surge in cases of depression and anxiety. And this surge is present worldwide.

Here are a few ways and methods that can help you maintain your mental health:

  • Give importance to relationships that matter to you the most Mental health is closely related to emotional health as well. Sometimes people become exceedingly emotional and hence undergo imbalanced mental health and show different mental behaviour. Try to sustain a positive relationship with your colleagues at the workplace and your family at home. Both personal and professional fronts are the two pillars that can add to their mental wellness and health. An imbalance in either will reflect a change in your behaviour pattern leading to depression, anger, stress, and anxiety. Often, men have the financial responsibility of their families. Hence, they have enough reasons to get stressed about. So, maintaining a congenial atmosphere in the workplace is not only important but also necessary.
  • Anticipate tough situations Leading a good life does not mean that you never come across tough situations in life. But a fighter is always prepared to fight it out and give their best shot. It is better to anticipate that you may have to face a tough situation in near future and hence get mentally prepared for the same. Maintain your sanity and try to look for ways to resolve the problem, if it strikes. Future planning always helps. To maintain your calm, you can also try to meditate or do Yoga. These are effective techniques to manage stress and believe me, the results are impressive and inspiring.
  • Look for professional help Societies must give an extended arm and help to people suffering from depression and anxiety. But at the same time, society should understand that visiting a professional and mental expert does not mean that the patient is insane. Due to the stigma attached to the issue, a lot of people avoid meeting the professional. But the fact is just the opposite. The people who require such help should reach out to the experts so that the latter can provide them with the best results. The expert may prescribe some mood enhancers or light medication to deal with the situation. Moreover, they will also recommend indulging in some exercises, Yoga, or meditation. These exercises make the mental state stronger and happier.
  • Keep your spirits high This is one of the most loved and explored ways to keep oneself happy. It is called nourishing your senses. Indulge in doing things that you love to do. It can be your favourite hobby too. Whether you enjoy listening to music, watching movies, painting, enjoying nature, going for a leisure walk; or anything that interests you. Using lavender essential oil in the diffuser is also a great way to relax your senses and uplift the mood.
  • Stay focused It helps if you stay focused on your present. Always thinking about the future often kills your present, howsoever good it may be. Planning for the future is good but not at the cost of your present. Why would you want to spoil your great present anticipating fear about the future? It is essential to stay focusses so that mental stability is maintained. Maybe, your present will have an answer to your secured future. And if it does then you are wasting your present for an unseen and unknown time.
  • Take a holiday Though taking a trip or a holiday is not seen as a desirable action during the pandemic, yet the short road trip to a nearby resort can also help you revive your senses and keep stress at bay. It will strengthen your mental health. Taking a break from the mundane schedule also refreshes the mind and rejuvenation can do the trick to make your mental wellness speak volumes about wellness alone. But remember to follow all Covid protocols and then undertake the plan.
    It is essential to handle stress and keep it at an arm’s distance because it can easily break the mental health of people. Hence, it is essential to understand the reasons for stress, handle the same, and come out triumphant. If you need professional help, then do not hesitate to knock on the door of an efficient mental help provider. They know the right ways to combat the issues.

Take-away

We live in the age of cut-throat competition in the professional world. Getting stressed is one of the rewards of the new age and everyone has to handle stress at some point in time. The mental health of the people is deteriorating and the reasons for the same vary extensively.

Why is Chin augmentation surgery popular among men?

What is chin augmentation?

Restructuring and improving the size and shape of the chin is called chin augmentation. It is a plastic surgery procedure that can be executed by an expert. The procedure requires careful planning by the expert. It involves relocation and reshaping of bones or can be done successfully through implants.

So, now comes the obvious question that why is chin augmentation surgery popular among men?

The surgery can define the jawline and add strength to it. If you think that cosmetic surgery is synonymous with women then you need to check the number of men visiting such clinics in recent times. Men also want to enhance their appearance and look their best.

Chin augmentation is often associated with men more than women. The reason is simple. Men want to have a defined jawline. It helps to balance the proportion of facial features. It boosts the confidence of men and improves their look.

Injectable products like RADIESSE and other filler combinations are easily available and popular too. Chin augmentation is a popular procedure that most men with receding chins prefer to opt for. A surgical option to get the perfect chin is a successful option for men with similar requirements.

Here are the top reasons that make the surgery popular among men:

  • Defined jawline If you find your favourite superhero having a defined jawline that looks rock-like and you also want the same, then there is nothing wrong with it. You can also get the perfect stone-like jawline if you want. A visit to the cosmetic surgeon will help you discover the popularity of chin augmentation and your possibilities to explore the treatment deliverables.
  • Combine with other surgeries Chin augmentation can easily gel along with other surgeries too. If a man wants to undergo a facelift or a neck lift, then chin augmentation can be combined with these surgeries and the results are impressive. The entire package can be availed by the patient and it will act like an ensemble package that can give the much-awaited appearance to the patient.
  • No scarring Most of the incisions are hidden and are not even visible to the eyes because these are under the chin or inside the lips. Once the procedure is done and healed, you will love the transformation and think that everything done to get the surgery was worth it. So, what are you waiting for? Get handsome looks to complement your facial features.
  • Boosts confidence This is the best advantage of getting chin augmentation done. If this is the only gap between you and your happiness, then the gap can be easily reduced and covered with the help of chin augmentation from CosmeSurge.

Who should not undergo the procedure?

However, there are a few limitations for chin augmentation. There are a few men with the following conditions who should not consider undergoing the knife for the procedure.

  • Men who do not have good health should not consider this surgery.
  • People who think and have unreasonable expectations from the surgery should maintain distance from the technique.
  • Share the list of medications that you consume regularly or daily. Based on the analysis performed by the expert, the patient will be advised whether or not he is eligible to undergo the procedure. Certain medications can interfere with the treatment of chin augmentation and not yield the desired results. So, discuss the medications that you consume beforehand.
  • If you suffer from cardiac issues or are a hypertension patient then do not think about chin augmentation because you are not the right candidate for the procedure.
  • If you take anticoagulants, then do not think about the technique.

The cosmetic surgeon in CosmeSurge will conduct an in-depth analysis of the patient and do the necessary investigations to be sure about the procedure.

The materials used to manufacture chin implants play a pivotal role to give the best visual impact to the product. Silicone chin implant is popular. To give a customized fit, the cosmetic surgeon will reshape the implant according to the requirement of the patient. The artificial plant is made to sit under the chin to boost the chin and make it appear defined. The procedure ideally takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. Local or general anaesthesia is used for the treatment procedure.

Take-away

It is always recommended to visit a renowned cosmetic surgeon for such procedures who are adept in the technique so that they can provide the best results. Moreover, talking to the patients who have already undergone the surgery will also present an enlightened picture of the procedure and help you to make the right decision with confidence.

Role of Plastic Surgery in the treatment of breast cancer

The first thing that strikes the mind of a lady when she hears the word Breast Cancer is the significance of her breasts. The very thought of losing either or both the breast in the treatment journey can be an exhaustive one. Breasts are an important part and parcel of a female’s body and she wants to retain them at any cost. But to control the spread of infection and the rapid growth of cancer cells in the body, the experts often advise removal of breasts for a few ladies.

If the treatment procedure requires a Mastectomy, then Breast Reconstruction follows, and several clinics provide the patients with a combo of both procedures. Since breast reconstruction is fast becoming a procedure to be followed after Mastectomy, then the role of a plastic surgeon also becomes inevitable.

What is the role of plastic surgery in the treatment of breast cancer?

Plastic surgeons and breast surgeons often join hands while performing mastectomy because several patients opt for the breast reconstruction treatment right after the Mastectomy which means that the role of plastic surgeon sets in after the breast surgeon’s performance. To determine the best course of treatment, both the surgeons meet and discuss the case jointly and take a decision and further present it to the patient. These are the things that are discussed much ahead of the procedure with the patients.

Plastic surgeons play a pivotal role in reconstructive surgeries in the body and hence they do play an essential role in breast reconstructive treatment as well.
Plastic surgeons who perform breast reconstructive surgeries can change the size of the breasts, reshape them, or reconstruct breasts. During the process of breast reconstruction, the experts create a breast using an artificial implant called implant reconstruction or a flap of tissue from another site or place of the patient’s body and the process is called autologous construction.

Several factors need consideration while selecting the surgery type for breast reconstruction:

  • Type of Mastectomy is the first factor to be considered. Most women opt for breast reconstruction right after Mastectomy because they do not want to feel depressed with the thought of losing the desired body part. Hence, the reconstruction procedure is followed by mastectomy. But some women consider the reconstruction surgery a few months or years after Mastectomy because they want to give rest to their body and do not want to undergo the trauma of dual surgeries simultaneously.
  • The body type of the patients is another important factor that helps the expert determine the timing and need of breast reconstruction.
  • The cancer treatment approach applied by the experts helps the plastic surgeon decide the course of procedure for breast reconstruction.

Most likely, the plastic surgeon will ask the following questions to the patient:

  • Is it important to rebuild breasts for you?
  • Are you fine with living with breasts that can be put on and taken off?
  • Will you feel whole after the implant or reconstruction of your breasts?
  • You may need more than one surgery for breasts reconstruction after mastectomy. Are you OK with it?

If the patients want to opt for free flap surgery or autologous construction, then the surgeon will conduct a few scans to assess the blood vessels in their body parts like the belly to see the feasibility of using the tissue for the reconstruction. Lower abdominal fat and skin is used for tissue reconstruction because it is considered the most congenial site. The rib cage is dissected, and isolation of blood vessels is done.

Plastic surgeons play an important role to help the patients in making the right decision for opting the surgery.

Here are a few interesting facts that the patients should know about breast reconstruction surgery:

  • There is no definite reason for the women to go for the procedure. Some women may consider going under the knife for different reasons other than breast cancer. Some women may want to reduce or increase the size of their breasts. Also, if they have a sagging problem due to age or injury, they may consider the reconstruction of the breasts.
  • Contrary to belief, some women can go home the same day after the surgery, especially if there are no complications. These are possible only if the conditions are congenial. The recovery is good and quick if surgery is performed under the skin and stitches are dissolvable.
  • You can discuss the desired cup and breast size with the surgeon so that the reconstruction can happen accordingly.
  • If anyone breast is affected due to breast cancer, then it can be reconstructed independently of the other. But the other one can be lifted, reduced, or augmented to complement and bring symmetry in size, shape, and position of both the breasts. These are a few elements that are discussed with the patient before the procedure. The plastic surgeon has to consider these points minutely so that perfection of the procedure is achieved.

There are different reasons for the ladies to go for breast reconstruction. The plastic surgeons will discuss the facts with the patients.

CosmeSurge provides the best cosmetic and plastic surgery options. They have a well-planned facility equipped with advanced technology to offer the best surgical options to the patients that can enhance their inner and outer personalities. These surgeries uplift the confidence of the patients. The clinic surgeons believe that plastic surgery is based on three parameters; artistic vision, expert knowledge, and meticulous techniques. The experts are ace professionals who blend human brilliance with technology to produce impressive results.

Take-away

Breast reconstruction is a personal choice and not a medical urgency for the patient. It is a surgery that can restore and enhance the appearance of a woman’s body after Mastectomy.

Everything about breast reconstruction after mastectomy

What is Mastectomy?

Removal of the breast is called Mastectomy. Mastectomy is of five different types, namely, Simple or Total Mastectomy, Radical Mastectomy, Modified Mastectomy, Subcutaneous Mastectomy, and Partial Mastectomy.

Total or Simple Mastectomy is the removal of the entire breast. Sometimes, removal of the whole breast may not be required, and the expert may consider the only removal of the lymph nodes from the underarm area. The surgeon may not even remove the muscle from under the breast. This is mostly done to prevent the impact of breast cancer.

Modified Mastectomy is the removal of lymph nodes and breast tissues. The aim is to examine the lymph nodes so that spread of cancer can be prevented beyond the breast.

Radical Mastectomy aims to remove the breasts completely. The underarm lymph nodes and chest wall muscles from under the breasts are also removed.

Partial Mastectomy means removing the cancerous part of the breast tissue.

Nipple Sparing Mastectomy or Subcutaneous Mastectomy is the removal of the breast tissue sparing the nipples.

Why Breast Reconstruction after mastectomy?

Many women who have undergone a Mastectomy may want to have their breasts back. After all, breasts are an important part of a woman’s body that gives the perfect shape to her body. It helps to give them the lost confidence and bring a smile to their face. Rebuilding and reshaping the breast through surgery is called breast reconstruction.

There are several options in front of the woman who wants to do this because Medical Science has come a long way. Implants like saline or silicone are used for the rebuilding of the breasts. Tissues from some other parts of the body are used for the reconstruction of the breasts. Sometimes both the tissue and the implant are used for the reconstruction of the breast.

Some women want to get the reconstruction done right after the Mastectomy. It is the immediate reconstruction of the breast. However, others wish to wait and get the reconstruction done after the incisions for Mastectomy are healed. It is called Delayed reconstruction. Such surgery can happen after a few months or years of Mastectomy.

It is important to note here that at times during the final stage of breast reconstruction, the surgeon may need to recreate the nipple and areola in case these were not left intact during Mastectomy.

What are the factors that impact breast reconstruction?

A couple of factors influence the kind of reconstruction surgery required in a woman.

  • Age and health of the woman.
  • The shape and size of her breasts.
  • History of past surgeries.
  • Risk factors involving the surgery.
  • Reasons related to the tumour.
  • Availability of autologous tissue.
  • Women having a history of abdominal surgery is not the right candidate whose tissue from the abdominal area can be used for the breast reconstruction.

These are some of the factors that lead to the final decision of breast reconstruction. The patients have to discuss these factors with the expert. The experts investigate these matters and then examine all the factors to give a green signal for the surgery.

Let us consider the facts related to breast reconstruction:

1. Implant reconstruction

Surgery and recovery

  • There should be enough skin and muscle in the breast area remaining after Mastectomy for the reconstructive surgery to follow.
  • It requires a shorter surgical procedure and has a little blood loss in comparison with autologous tissue surgery.
  • The recovery period is also shorter than the autologous surgery recovery period.
  • Follow-up visits are required.

The possibility of complications does exist in the implant reconstruction.

  • The patient may develop an infection. She may develop a lump of clear fluid within the reconstructed area.
  • Blood clots.
  • The implant may break through the skin.
  • Rupture may also happen in the implant leading to leakage of the silicone.
  • There may develop hard scar tissue around the reconstructed area.
  • If the patient suffers from conditions like obesity or diabetes and is a smoker, then she may face complications.
  • Another rare complication is the development of a form of immune system cancer, anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

However, other considerations also exist:

  • If the lady has undergone radiation therapy in the chest, then she is not the candidate to undergo this surgery.
  • Women with large breasts should not consider undergoing this treatment.
  • It cannot last for a lifetime.
  • Sensitive to touch, especially silicone implants.
  • It is recommended that women having silicone implants should undergo regular MRI screening to detect a rupture in implants.

2. Autologous Tissue Reconstruction

Surgery and recovery

  • The surgical procedure is longer than the implant surgical procedure.
  • The initial recovery period is also a long one.
  • Pedicled flap reconstruction takes a shorter period for surgery compared to free flap reconstruction. The latter is a long surgery that should be performed by a surgeon with microsurgery experience.

The patient may develop complications as indicated below:

  • Transferred tissue may die.
  • Blood clots.
  • Weakness and pain in the donor site.
  • Women who have diabetes and obesity may develop complications.

A few other considerations:

  • Looks more natural than implant surgery.
  • Soft and natural feel
  • The donor site may leave a scar.

Women undergoing mastectomy due to breast cancer can experience breast numbness because nerves that connect and give sensation to the breast are cut and tissue is removed.

A word of caution: Breast reconstruction will fail if healing is not proper. If such conditions occur, then the patient will have to get the implant/flap removed. A second reconstruction may be a possible requirement.

CosmeSurge has an exceptional team of surgeons and experts to execute such surgeries in an organized fashion. They investigate all the observations and then recommend the right path of surgery to the patient. The experts ensure that the patients undergo the corrective measures post-operation and complete the healing procedure with all follow-ups and medicines required to make the surgery successful.

This surgery is one of the cosmetic surgeries that can help women to get their lost confidence and beauty back. A well-shaped body with the required curves can boost self-love and care in women suffering from low self-esteem after Mastectomy.

Men aim to look defined and not thin, as most women want. They opt for manly contours that give them a stringer and broader look. For men, it is not about looking lean and slim, but it is about enhancing their muscles, broad shoulders, no hips, and a small waist.

Significance of Nutrition in Before & After plastic surgery

You cannot overlook the role of nutrition in any phase of life. You may ignore nutrition in your normal routine or daily schedule but it is imperative to take care of your nutrition intake before or after any surgery. Here we are going to discuss the significance of nutrition before and after plastic surgery.

The health practitioners at CosmeSurge recommend the patients have a healthy lifestyle before the plastic surgery of their choice. Eating a balanced and nutritional diet ensures that the immune system of the body is in place to fight infections and diseases, especially if any occurs after the plastic surgery. A surgical procedure requires not only preparing the mind for the operation but also the body. And this is possible with the help of a nutritional diet. The main advantage of maintaining a healthy diet is that it aids in faster healing post-operative procedures. Also, the combination of healthy food and health supplements can aid healing.

Pre-operative surgery

It is better to understand the delicate situation and prepare the body for surgery 2-4 weeks before the actual date of operation. Intake of fluids should be maximum and higher than usual. It helps to keep the skin blemish-free and accelerates metabolism.
A few weeks before the procedure the patients are asked to leave alcohol and smoking and make their bodies ready to face the consequences. The consequences can be easy to handle if you are ready with a positive approach both from the mind and the body.

To ensure optimum physical condition before the operation, try to adopt the following regime and habits:

  • Avoid eating health supplements a few days before the surgery. This is recommended by the experts because these supplements may interfere with the medications that they will prescribe before the surgery.
  • Avoid consuming Aspirin at least 2 weeks before the surgery.
  • Before 8 hours of surgery, avoid eating and drinking anything.
  • The doctors at CosmeSurge recommend that the patients should have at least 64 oz. of water every day.
  • Be alert and do not skip any meals.
  • Include probiotics in your meal to keep constipation at bay.
  • Be alert about the nutrition present in the food items in each meal. Look for a balanced diet consisting of low amounts of fats, sugar, and salt.
  • Involve fruits, vegetables, a small portion of lean protein and monosaturated fat. Having a good amount of protein is important because it helps in tissue repair and faster healing. Ensure to have a good number of fruits also before the surgery, especially Vitamin C.
  • It is better that you consult your doctor if you experience anything unusual in your body before the plastic surgery.

Post-operative care and nutrition:

Research also points towards the fact that nutrition is one of the fastest and the easiest ways to recover from surgery. Plastic surgery can be haunting for the body. It is extremely stressful for the body to undergo plastic surgery. A proper diet can strengthen the immunity in the body and aid in faster recovery after the surgery.

  • The patient requires a diet that is equipped with minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and proteins. This helps to reduce inflammation in the body post-operative procedure. Swelling and bloating are also reduced with the help of a nutritive diet. The diet has necessary elements that can help the body to fight against diseases and infections.
  • Here is an important point to note. In the first week post-surgery, the patient should stop eating vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B, vitamin K, and fish oils. Moreover, vegetables like tomatoes, eggplants, garlic, cayenne, potatoes, and ginger should be avoided in the first week after the surgery.
  • The post-surgery diet should contain ingredients like blueberries, olive oil, sour cherries, avocados, and monosaturated fats.
  • Having a sufficient amount of zinc, glutamine, and arginine are also important. Bromelain is recommended to reduce swelling and inflammation in the body. Even grapeseed extract is a good product that takes care of swelling and inflammation and reduces scarring.

Now, you know what to eat and what to avoid before and after plastic surgery. Here is a quick look to explain the importance of nutrition:

  • Maintains balance An appropriate balance will help the patient to keep a track of the portion that is recommended. Neither too little nor too much is prescribed. Hence, there is no one-size-fits-all kind of diet. It also depends from person to person and the expert can give the best guidance.
  • Saves energy and time If you are ready with a meal plan that is to be followed before and post-surgery then you are saving both time and energy. Planning goes a long way.
  • Inculcating healthy habits Including healthy eating as a lifestyle change is not easy, especially for people who love to binge on junk food. But lifestyle change is a choice and hence if you inculcate good and healthy eating habits, then you will invite quick healing post-surgery.

Take-away

Food and nutrition play a pivotal role in giving the required strength to the body. Having a good diet before the surgery prepares the body to undergo the trauma of surgery. Surgeries are stressful for the body and there are possibilities of infections post-surgery. But if you load your body with the required nutrients, then you are preparing your body to face the possible consequences of surgery. On the other hand, if your body is loaded with the required nutrients, it will be able to fight the infections and diseases that may occur after the surgery. The body is ready to heal faster and the tissue repair is also quick.

CosmeSurge prepares the meal plan that they share with the patients and ask them to follow the same 2-4 weeks before the procedure. Steps like these are helpful to allow the patients to expect quick recovery with minimal consequences. A heavy dosage of antibiotics is prescribed after surgery. Hence, the nutrition level should be optimum to strike a balance and prepare the body for post-operative care.

According to Dr. Matlock, the injection works by lowering the G-spot into the vagina for easier location. The shot enlarges the area of the G-spot that happens to be the most erogenous zone in the vagina, capable of giving deeper and quicker orgasms.

Two types of G-Shot procedures are prescribed by most of the service providers:

  • G-spot enhancement with PRP (Plasma Rich Platelets)
  • G-spot enhancement with Hyaluronic acid-filled injections.

The procedure

The procedure is performed in a clinic and takes 15-20 minutes. The expert firsts ask the patient to indulge in self-examination of the area and locate the spot. The expert then identifies the location within the vagina with the help of the patient. The next step is to numb the area, and the expert does it with anaesthesia. Then the injection is injected.

How does Microneedling help with Skin rejuvenation?

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the skin making it appear youthful. Tiny needles are used to puncture the top layer of the skin. The aim is to improve the texture of the skin. Several celebrities have undergone the procedure to look better and feel younger. They swear by the procedure, and so does some of the cosmetologists and dermatologists.

The results of the procedure are reported to be impressive. The procedure is simple, as it takes less than 15 minutes. A handheld device is used for injecting needles on the skin after numbing the area. The goal is to stimulate collagen on the skin, and the needles are energized with radiofrequency to facilitate the procedure.

As we age, the production of collagen in the skin slows down, causing signs of aging. The radiofrequency waves can kick start the healing process naturally, leading to rejuvenation of the skin. The results are good because the skin becomes smooth and even tone. When the skin starts producing collagen, the sign of aging also begins to fade. It also helps in the reduction of pores on the skin. It majorly helps to reduce acne scars and early signs of aging like pigmentation and wrinkles. The process of aging is reversed with Microneedling.

Benefits of Microneedling

The key benefits of undergoing the procedure of Microneedling are:

  • Microneedling helps to enhance the texture of the skin.As the procedure leads to collagen formation, the upper layer of the skin smoothens, and hence, the skin texture improves—collagen and elastin help give a plump look to the skin. You will notice that the process of healing the skin will start immediately after the procedure. Though the procedure will leave you with a few scars and bleeding skin, this condition will not last for more than 1-2 days. What will follow is smooth textured skin.
  • Reduces scarsWe all are aware of the marks that acne leaves on the skin. These are difficult to remove. But Microneedling helps to reduce the scars of acne to a considerable extent. Acne marks go deep under the skin and cause poke marks. This can be treated with the help of Microneedling, and the Before-After results speak volumes about the method’s success in treating such scars.
  • Blackhead’s reductionWomen who suffer from blackheads benefit from Microneedling because, during the procedure, the tension and pressure on the skin caused by the needles allow the blackheads to release. Immediately post-procedure, you will notice that the blackheads are relaxed. In the event of successive weeks of healing, you will see that the pores have also reduced in size. The reduction blackheads will last for 3-4 weeks, and the breakout will begin by then, but by then, it will be time for another sitting of Microneedling.
  • Treats acne and cystsFacial acne can be effectively managed with the help of Microneedling. Acne also reduces with the use of the procedure. The method reduces the production of sebum and less oil on the skin that helps in the reduction of acne.
  • Skin exfoliationAs the procedure comes in close contact with the epidermis, it will lead to skin exfoliation. As the dead skin persistently stays on the upper layer of the skin, removing the layer will give a renewed and rejuvenated look to the skin, making it appear brighter and more transparent.
  • Reduces fine line and wrinklesWho does not want to look younger? Who does not want to keep wrinkles away? The questions have answers in the form of Microneedling because the procedure can help in the reduction of wrinkles, thereby giving a youthful look to the patient. Microneedling also supplies oxygen and blood straight into the skin because the needles cause break up on the upper layer of the skin, allowing the blood vessels to act fast. It leads to skin tightening, and hence reduction of wrinkles and fine lines takes place.
  • Reduces hyperpigmentationMicroneedling can also help in the reduction of hyperpigmentation. Inflammation, blackheads, acne, and whiteheads are responsible for pigmentation on the skin. Discolouration of the skin makes it evident that there is skin colour differentiation, and it looks terrible. Microneedling increases matrix metalloproteinases that help in the reduction of pigmentation.

A few facts

If the skin is pricked with needles, then pain is the first reaction that you will feel. And if the skin is poked with several tiny needles, you can well imagine the pain you will experience.
So, if you have decided on the procedure, then be ready to bear the pain.

Get some facts clear. Be sure that the expert goes at least 2.0-2.5 mm deep in the skin for the best results. Digging only 0.5 mm deep in the epidermis layer will not produce with required marks.

Bleeding is one of the significant impacts of Microneedling and if the skin bleeds, be rest assured that the procedure is going in the right direction. Bleeding will subside, and the visible results will be noticed in 1-2 days.
Ensure using Vitamin C serum post-procedure as it aids in collagen formation. Reduces healing time and leads to even skin tone.

Breast Augmentation – Evolution over the years and safest technique today

What is Breast Augmentation?

As the terms suggest, increasing the size of the breasts through a surgical procedure is called Breast Augmentation. It is a cosmetic surgery technique that employs breasts implant and grafting of fat tissue to give fullness to the existing size of the breasts. The patient can expect changes in size, shape, and texture of her breasts post-surgery. The other name for the procedure is Augmentation Mammoplasty.

Whatever the reason for opting for the procedure may exist, the result builds confidence for the women. It gives them a feel-good factor in life that may be amiss before. Medical Science keeps evolving with newer techniques to equip the patients with a fresh lease of hope and life. Cosmetic surgeries aim to correct the appearance of people to make them acquire self-confidence and practice self-love.

The implants that are placed under the chest of women undergoing surgery lasts for 7-10 years.

Why do women opt for breast augmentation?

  • Some women have small breasts that make them feel uncomfortable. Hence, the option of such a procedure serves as an excellent opportunity to increase the size of their breasts and make their appearance attractive.
  • Pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss may alter the size of the breasts naturally. Some women are not happy with the results, and they want to go under the knife to regain their lost size.
  • Asymmetrical breasts can acquire symmetry with such procedures.
  • Reconstructive surgery is performed as a part of treatment for breast cancer.

What are breast implants?

A breast implant is a type of prosthesis medically approved to go under the chest and augment its size. It has to give the impression of natural breasts. Breasts implants can be categorized as under:

  • Saline Implants: These are like saltwater, and the implant is filled with sterile saline solution. If such implant leaks or collapses, the saline is absorbed by the body as a natural process. The surgery type is approved by FDA and certified for women over the age of 18.
  • Silicone Implants: Silicone gel is filled inside the silicone-based shell that goes under the chest to augment the size of the breast. In case of leakage in such type of implant, the gel remains inside the shell, or it may go in the breast implant pocket. But the implant will not collapse. It is recommended for the woman who opts for such surgery to go for regular check-ups. It is approved by FDA and suitable for women over 22 years.

    The implant was first invented in 1961 by Thomas Cronin and Frank Gerow, American Plastic Surgeons. Dow Corning Corporation manufactured the prosthesis.

  • Alternative Composite Implants: These are filled with polypropylene string or soy oil.
  • Structured Implant: As the fourth category of breast implant, it attained recognition in 2014 by FDA. The unique thing about the procedure is that both saline and silicone implants are used in the procedure. The filling is the saline solution, but it remains intact if there is a leakage because the shell is made of silicone.
  • Textured Breast implant: These implants have less tendency to move around inside the chest because the scar tissue is made to stick to the implant. The risk of light scar capsules in Texturing is minimal. The position of the implant is maintained, and the women can enjoy long-term results.

Over the years, breast augmentation techniques have undergone a sea of changes due to the advancements made in the medical field. New ideas and remodelling of old practices and models have witnessed evolution. The history of breast augmentation is rather an interesting one. The first few techniques of breast augmentation involved the transferring of body fat from one part of the body to the breast.

We have come a long way since those times, and the recent developments are inspiring because the results are impressive. Women get a chance to select the type of surgery they desire after discussing the same with the experts.

What to expect?

  • The patient is given the advantage to select the size of her choice for the implant. The woman can place the different implants inside her bra to decide the most suitable one.
  • Moreover, the patient is injected with general anaesthesia, and she sleeps through the surgery. In some cases, the procedure is executed with local anesthesia, and she is awake while the procedure is in progress.
  • The patient should also discuss the type of incision for the procedure. An Inframammary incision is done under the breast in its crease. Transaxillary incision is done under the armpit. A periareolar incision is done around the nipple. Several factors help to make the right decision.
  • Closing the incision also involves options. It is done in layered stitches, skin adhesives, and surgical tapes. Post-surgery the incision lines are visible for a couple of days until it fades with time.
  • Recovery may depend upon several factors. Stitches that are dissolvable disappear within 6 weeks. However, a follow-up meeting with the expert will acquaint the patient with the Do’s and Don’ts. If the patient experiences any pain, fever, swelling post-surgery, then it means there may have developed an infection, and addressing the problem to an expert is essential.

Brow lift or Blepharoplasty

Looks do matter because appearance has the power to enhance self-confidence. Several procedures are cosmetically empowered to enhance the looks of the person. Here we talk about procedures to enhance the eyebrows and get a younger look and feel.

A blepharoplasty and a brow lift are two very different procedures done to two different aspects of the face.

What is a Brow Lift?

Brow lift is a procedure for altering the position of the brow and address excess skin on the forehead. Eyebrow Lift can fix drooping brows, improve hairline and give a lively look to the patient’s eye area. The two most popular and commonly performed eyebrow lift procedures are Conventional and Endoscopic browlift.

Conventional Method: excess skin and muscle is removed along the scalp line, where the expert makes a long incision.

Endoscopic Method: the expert makes several small incisions to make amendments in the upper eyes and forehead.

Significant changes will be visible in the brow and area between the forehead and upper eyes.

What is Blepharoplasty?

If there is a significant droop and sag in the upper and lower eyelids or eye bags and puffiness, then Blepharoplasty would be an ideal choice. The procedure focuses on removing the excess fat or skin of the upper/lower eyelid. An upper blepharoplasty addresses sagging eyelids, while a lower blepharoplasty addresses under-eye bags. This procedure makes the eye look more open and brightens the appearance of the face, but it does not change the change the shape of the eyes

What is better – Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty?

We recommend consulting with a surgeon about the procedure that goes well with you. For a person who feels heaviness above the eyelids due to sagging skin, Blepharoplasty is the best option. If the eyebrows are extremely low, then Brow lift is the best option. Sometimes, the expert also recommends Botox injections along with the above two procedures.

Why do such issues arise?

  • Aging is the foremost reason for people to opt for the procedures, whether Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty. With age, the brow tends to lower, and the elasticity of the skin is also lost. Hence, the distance between the eyelashes and eyebrows reduces.
  • The eyebrows acquire a shape that makes them appear sad, angry, or tired. A Browlift is the most recommended under such circumstances because the procedure helps to restore the brows and makes the person appear pleasing.
  • Sagging brows also make a good reason for the person to opt for such a procedure.

What to do?
It is better to connect with the medical professional and ask for options to make the brow rise and look better than the present appearance. Plan a visit to the surgeon and discuss the possibilities:

  • Medical History Discussion: Before discussing the possibilities of the procedures, the medical practitioner will ask for the patient’s medical history. You will have to disclose about surgeries that you have had recently. Also, it would help if you acquainted the doctor with the medical conditions that you have. Discuss your allergies too with the doctor.
  • Physical examination: The doctor scrutinizes the patients’ face, especially the eye area that contains the eyelids. The forehead is also examined with complete attention.
  • Expectations: Talk to the expert and tell him/her about the risk and advantages of the procedure. Hence, the patient can expect the results of the procedure accordingly.

Take-away
Beauty sure is in the eyes of the beholder, but beauty can be enhanced in the hands of cosmetic surgeons. We live in the age of technology and are equipped to make perfect alterations in our bodies, especially the face. Several cosmetic options are available for the patients that they can opt for and get the desired look.

Nano Facelift – Younger Look Without Any Surgery

With age, the skin begins to show woes that can be difficult to handle. While accepting age as a graceful attitude is one of the best ways to deal with it, yet if there is a possible and simple solution that can make you look younger, why not avail it?

The skin starts to show aging as we grow old in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagginess. Let us understand the anatomy of the skin and the reason behind the aging skin. As we come of age, the elasticity of the skin decreases. The ability of the skin cells to regenerate also decreases. Skin begins to lose volume, and sagging sets in.

Medical Science has an answer for the problem. The best part is that the solution is available both ways; surgical and non-surgical. You have the ball in your court to decide which one of the procedures to opt for.
Well here we will discuss about Nano Facelift, a non-surgical procedure to preserve youthful skin

What is a Nano facelift?

Nano facelift is a procedure to attain a youthful look without surgical procedure. Volume is added to the skin of the face, and a lift is given without the surgery. It helps to reduce the signs of aging and reverse the skin mechanism. In the human body, there is fat rich in mesenchymal stem cells that can be harvested from one part of the body to be placed in the part that requires a lift. The fat that is extracted has repair features and tissue-building properties. A bioactive adipose-derived cell is injected that can rejuvenate the skin and provide volume to the area. Thin injections are applied to the affected area to give a lift. The fat is liquified before grafting, and the procedure is a breakthrough method of reversing age without surgery.

What is Nano Fat?

The grafting of nano fat is also called Micronized injection or AMI. The size of the fat graft component helps to determine whether it is nano fat or micro fat.
Tiny particles of fat are called Nano fat. Since the component is tiny and refined, it is referred to as Nano fat. The difference between Nano and Micro fat is that the former is emulsified using sterilization, and the latter is made to undergo centrifuge treatment.

Why should you consider Nano facelift?

The answer to the question is simple. Who does not want to look youthful? Especially if non-invasive procedures to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, jowls, and associated problems can be handled. The procedure is done with a handheld device that has tiny needles. The liquified fat is injected into the affected area through the tiny needles present in the machine. It is a professional’s job who does it with an artistic approach. The markings are also made on the face to facilitate the procedure.

Where can Nano facelift be performed?

The procedure treats the affected area by contouring areas like sunken eyes, temples, wrinkles, and fine lines. The fact is that apart from the face, Nano fat grafting also proves to be a valuable technique to lift areas like breasts and buttocks. The method helps to remove the stretch marks in such areas and smoothens the skin. Since the procedure does not engage any incision, the downtime associated with the technique is also none or minimal.

What are the benefits of Nano Facelift?

  • It promotes the growth of collagen that can restore the elasticity of the skin yielding youthful results. The fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation start reducing, and with successive sessions, the results are encouraging.
  • Nano facelift is a non-invasive treatment procedure, and the patients who do not desire to go for the surgical methods can easily opt for nano facelifts.

The procedure requires completion in sessions, and it completely depends upon the expert and the patient to discuss the course of the treatment process. In the beginning, the sessions shall be scheduled at close quarters, but in the following months, the need for consultation will reduce. It is essential to discuss the procedure expectations with the experts. Living under false notions can lead to disappointment, and hence, the patients should seek the advice of the experts before going ahead with the procedure.

Top 5 Reasons to Embrace Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are restorative cosmetic processes that can assist in reducing facial aging signs.
With this, you can fix breakouts, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and a plethora of other skin issues.
You can make scarring, acne, sun damage and wrinkles a thing of the past to give your skin a clearer appearance, thanks to these peels.
Let’s dig a bit deeper to understand what chemical peels are.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels happen to be cosmetic treatments that involve careful skin exfoliation with the help of acid.
This acid is responsible for removing a uniform amount of damaged skin across the area of treatment. When done in the right way, this permits the skin to heal with a color change or minimal scaling.
The chemical peels affect two layers of the skin – the dermis and epidermis. The epidermis is the outer layer and the dermis sits just below it. The deeper layer consists of sweat glands, nerve endings and hair follicles.
A chemical peel does away with a controlled amount of skin cells from the epidermis. A stronger peel should be able to remove a small portion of the dermis as well. A dermatologist can use chemical peels for skin conditions like –

  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne
  • Redness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Scarring

During the chemical peel treatment, the dermatologists apply a chemical solution to the skin. The solution peels off damaged skin cells. This, in turn, allows the skin to be healthy and grow in place.
This can enhance skin concerns that are common like –

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Acne

There are many factors like the type of peel received and the skin severity issues that can impact the results.
Here are some of the major benefits that chemical peels offer.

  • Treat Acne – Acne happens to be a common inflammatory skin condition. Oral medication and topical products are the go-to medications for this but the chemical peels may also assist to –
    • Reduce the oil production
    • Breakdown the plugged hair follicles or comedones
    • Decrease inflammation
    • Kill bacteria
    • Augment absorption of topical treatments

    Medium and light chemical peels are used to treat acne.

  • – Now with the healing of acne, the skin tries to repair the lesions that the inflamed skin creates. New collagen fibers can give rise to atrophic scars that result in skin depressions and hypertrophic scars that are raised and bumpy. The chemical peel can assist by exfoliating the top layer of the skin that is responsible for removing excessive collagen. For acne scars, usually medium chemical peels are recommended.
  • Remove Dark Spots – To even out the skin pigmentation, a medium chemical peel also works upon the freckles, age spots and dark patches. A lighter chemical peel just reaches out to the top layer of the skin or epidermis. The medium chemical peel manages to reach the superficial dermal layer which is the layer underlying it. This will ensure a more even and clearer skin tone.
  • Enhance New Cell Formations –The milder skin peels stimulate the growth of new cells thus increasing cell turnover with the exfoliation of the dead skin cells. This goes without saying that new skin is much more youthful and less wrinkled than the older counterpart. This treatment is repeated after a month or month and a half (4-6 weeks) to achieve the desired results. The sensitive skin also gets benefited from this treatment. However, remember that the skin can get sensitive after the treatment and that is why the use of proper moisturizer and sunblock is often recommended.

These are some of the major benefits that are enabled by chemical peels. There are a variety of peels to choose from and anyone who desires young and softer skin can opt for this. There can be some restrictions, of course, like all other procedures.
To stay safe and make the most of what this treatment has to offer, you should consult a reliable dermatologist who can guide you in the right way after proper analysis and examination of your skin type and thus ensure the best results.

The upper portion of the face is refreshed and brightened up when you rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes. This enables a more young and supple look for your entire face.

Sun damage, thinning skin and facial expressions can take a toll on the delicate areas around the eyes. This can lead to cosmetic issues which can take place at any age. This accelerates the premature aging of the face and this can be experienced at any age.

Eye Rejuvenation treatments can prevent all that. And the best part is that these are all in-office treatments for both men and women that call for little to no downtime.

Here are 5 In-Office Treatments for Eye Rejuvenation. Take a look.

  • Muscle Relaxants Usually, cosmetic specialists almost always suggest that you should address the quality and look of the skin separately. Muscle relaxants are one of the most preferred treatments for under-eye rejuvenation. It softens the animation response or exaggerated muscles around the eyes to a great extent. After that, micro-needling, chemical peels or laser sessions can be used to lighten or tighten the skin. Muscles relaxants address the fine lines while lasers and peels can tighten the skin after smoothening the wrinkles out. Together, the treatments target multiple problem areas to ensure comprehensive positive results.
  • Peels Chemical peels have proven to be extremely effective for doing away with superficial wrinkles by resurfacing the skin under the eyes. The peels are designed for removing the top layer of the skin under the eye for revealing a newer and smoother layer of skin so that the wrinkles are much less prominent.
  • Hyaluronic Acid fillers Injectable fillers can improve the most common under-eye issues. This involves pronounced tear troughs, dark circles, hollowed skin and sagging skin below the eyes. The specialist usually administers the natural hyaluronic acid after the application of anesthesia in the tear trough area. The results are immediate as the area gets filled up with a solution almost immediately. The under-eye fillers call for an experienced injector to be administered. But keep in mind that there are several blood vessels in the delicate area under the eyes and the skin is extremely thin there, too. Due to blood pooling, there can be darkness and swelling after the treatment. This can give the patients a bruised appearance, but it is temporary. Though harmless, moderate bruising of the eyes can last from 10 to 14 days and so you should refrain from going for this treatment right before a big event. You must be careful with under-eye fillers as these should not be used to overfill the area. This will cause an unattractive bulge. To avoid that, it is always recommended to go for a reputed facility and certified specialist for this treatment.
  • Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) You may have come across PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma for hair loss and facial rejuvenation. But this can also be used under the eyes. The tired look can be improved with PRP. The plasma can be injected either alone or mixed into fillers for enhanced results. The growth factors are released by platelets that signal the surrounding cells to repair the damaged tissues and regenerate the new tissues. The results are smoothed wrinkles, stronger skin and an overall refreshed look.
  • Laser and Radiofrequency For minor under-eye wrinkles on the top skin layer, laser resurfacing is often used. These are like chemical peels. By breaking down the epidermis on the top layer of the skin, the laser beam stimulates the new collagen to grow in the next layer.

    Radiofrequency (RF) is for those patients whose skin type is not suitable for lasers. RF uses energy to stimulate the skin which can be a great alternative. Radiofrequency is capable of addressing wrinkles, fine lines and under-eye bags. It improves the quality of the skin by stimulating elastin and collagen production.

    These are some of the in-office under-eye rejuvenation treatments that can give you a whole new look by tightening muscles, eliminating excess skin and repositioning fat in your under-eye area. This will ensure long-lasting and natural-looking desirable results with minimum downtime.

Trending Cosmetic Procedures of 2021

2020 has been a landmark year that has compelled us to sit up, introspect and embrace a lifestyle that is unprecedented, all thanks to the pandemic.
This goes without saying that the beauty industry is also reeling under its effects and experiencing a rollercoaster of surprises.
To begin with, elective surgeries were put on hold almost across the world. During this time people were almost trapped indoors and they adopted the digital lifestyle. Naturally spending time looking at themselves on camera became a popular pastime for most.
Now when the reconstructive surgeons and the dermatologists finally got the opportunity to resume their services, the demand for those aesthetic surgeries went off the roof.
Here are some of the trending cosmetic procedures of 2021.

  • Non-surgical Eye and Brow Rejuvenation – Thanks to the pandemic, all have learned the significance of covering the mouths and noses for preventing the transmission of the disease. In fact, the way of interaction has also changed because of that. The majority of the lower portion of your face remains covered with masks. Therefore you have to rely upon your eyebrows and eyes to convey emotions. This can lead to the emergence of new wrinkles. The non-surgical eye and brow rejuvenation with Dysport and Botox and neuromodulators have always been a sought-after procedure and in 2021 it is going to skyrocket.
  • Hair Transplantation – Hair transplantation is one of the most popular surgeries assisting you to renew hair growth without any hassle. In this case, the hair follicles are collected from the rear portion of the scalp in the portion where the hair is seen to be much denser. After this, the hair is transplanted with the help of minute incisions to the areas of the scalp that are afflicted by hair loss. Most of the patients require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results in this case. Almost one and half months (6 weeks) later the hair that was transplanted will be gone. But you don’t need to bother about it as new hair will grow back within 3 months. However, the individuals opting for it need to avoid tobacco usage and smoking simultaneously as this affects the healing of the wound.
  • Lip Treatments – Even after masking it up, lips have always been a priority and patients have never shied away from investing in natural-looking, couture lips. Despite their popularity, lips can be a complicated area to treat. There are several portions of the lips when you analyze like the cupid’s bow, the vermillion border (lip liner application area) and the lip body (lipstick application). Different parts of the lips have different levels of stiffness. A customized plan for lip augmentation is made after analyzing the lips both while they are moving and are at rest with the help of various types of fillers and botox.
  • Facial Rejuvenation – Masks are here to stay. And this has impacted the plastic surgery trends in a variety of ways. Though many are taking the perks of extra coverage that masks are providing, others are going for the opposite approach. As masks cover up the mouth, many think that they cover up one of their favorite features – their lips. To challenge these feelings they have started doing their brows, wearing specialized eye makeup and accessorizing their mask. These have helped in boosting their confidence. This has also turned out to be the ideal time for many to go for face rejuvenation therapies including surgical facelifts and injectables.
  • Surgical Profile Makeover – Doctors have predicted that this year people are going to seek a more permanent way to optimize their looks. According to experts, in terms of recovery and surgical logistics, one of the most sought-after combos is Chin implant and Rhinoplasty and submental liposuction. These call for about 3 hours of operating time and can help you achieve the look that you always desired for. As far as the body is concerned, there is already a noticeable hype for both surgical and non-surgical contouring requests along with breast surgeries and implants. All these not just enhance your looks but also your confidence.

According to the reports gathered and research conducted, these are the top 5 trending cosmetic procedures that more and more people are choosing in 2021.
If you have been thinking about this and still are not sure, you can always book an appointment and consult an esteemed cosmetic physician or reconstructive surgeon who can give you a clear picture and set the right expectations regarding the treatment that you wish to opt for.
This will help you achieve your desired shape and look that you have always been longing for.

When to Go For Hair Transplant?

Beautiful locks are one of the most desired features that all, irrespective of their age and gender, crave. But one fine morning when you wake up and look into the mirror, you may find scalp where there should have been hair.
This is a common occurrence that most of us have experienced at one point or the other.

Research suggests that approximately 60% of the men and 50% of women of all age groups experience this worldwide. In fact, two-third of the men experience this before the age of 35. In worst-case scenarios, men, as early as in their 20s, can be affected by hair loss.
The shock of accepting an undesired hairline can be quite visceral. This is especially concerning for those who lose hair at such an early age.

Reasons for Untimely Hair Loss

Male/female pattern baldness due to genetics (having a baldness history in the family) or hormonal changes is the major reason for hair loss in most cases.

Premature baldness does not just affect someone’s looks but also their self-esteem. This is what inspires many to consider a hair transplant treatment.

Do Hair Transplants Work?

When compared with over-the-counter hair restoration products, hair transplant is much more successful. But there are certain factors that you should take into account.

About 80 % of the hair that is transplanted will grow back completely in approximately 4 months.
People who have dormant hair follicles (sacs usually containing hair below the dermal surface but do not grow hair anymore) can have less successful transplants. However, studies suggest that plasma therapy can come to the rescue at this point. It can make almost 80% of the transplanted hair grow back completely.

Hair transplants are not for everyone. It is primary used for hair restoration if you have thinning hairline or are balding naturally or have lost hair because of an injury.

Most of the transplants are accomplished with your existing hair. Hair transplant is not so effective for those with-

  • Hair loss due to some types of medications or chemotherapy
  • Widespread baldness and thinning
  • Thick scars on scalp from injuries

Important things to consider while opting for Hair Transplant

There are various things to consider when you are opting for a hair transplant. Take a look.

  • Your Expectations The donor’s hair is of limited supply in one way or the other. However, this hair is sourced from an area of the body that is not prone to hair loss. This implies that you do not have to stress over the fact that you have to immediately go for a hair transplant apprehending that the hair will fall out otherwise.

    But you need to understand where to put that hair for best use or on which part of your scalp the hair should be put that will make you the happiest. You must go in with the right expectations for the best outcome of any hair restoration process.

  • The Cost If anyone says that hair transplants are cheap, that’s not true. This procedure calls for a fairly large financial investment and that is why it is a determining factor in this case. You should analyze whether you can afford a hair transplant now or if you need more time to save up for it.

    Remember that restoring your hair is not a cakewalk. A quality HT treatment ensures that it lasts for a lifetime without the need for you to go for it again. This is an advanced cosmetic procedure, and you can be rest assured that the investment for hair transplant would be worth every penny provided you do your research and choose the right center, time and surgeon to execute it.

  • Current Level of Hair Loss If you have tremendous hair loss or a receding hairline, going for a hair transplant can turn out to be a potential remedy.

    Determining the level of hair loss will help you identify whether it is the right time to go for hair transplantation or no. During the initial stage of hair loss, one can opt for different hair growth treatments.
    Once the hair loss turns into bald patches or receding hairline you know that it is time to visit a hair transplant surgeon.

  • Finding the Right Surgeon A key factor for determining the look of your hair transplant is the experience and skill of your surgeon. That is why you should choose your surgeon after proper research.

    It is advisable that instead of a general plastic surgeon specializing in a variety of procedures, you opt for an experienced surgeon who specializes in the restoration of hair specifically.

    Only by selecting an efficient surgeon, you can restore your hair thickness and original hairline with the help of a transplant.

  • Your Age Experts opine that men in their early 20s are not the best candidates for hair transplant surgery. This is because the actual cause of pattern for hair loss may not be fully determined until that time.

    Before recommending the most suitable hair transplant procedure for you, the surgeon always takes into account several things like hair loss pattern, hair loss type, size of the balding area, and quality of the hair on the donor site.

    In the hair restoration process, the surgeon actually extracts follicles of hair from the donor site.

    This can either be a full strip from a portion of the scalp that has healthy growth of hair (FUT) or individual hair follicles (FUE). These follicles are then segregated into units and transplanted into the region of balding. The incisions on the head recover with time and the follicles start to promote the growth portion.

    The grafting process varies on the hair loss severity and the facial features of the patient. This is to ensure that it looks as natural as possible. Nothing is quite determined in the case of the younger patients be it the severity of the hair loss or the hair loss pattern.

    That is why experts always advise going for hair transplantation after 25 years of age.

  • Self-Confidence/Self Esteem It is quite common to experience a loss of confidence when you go through hair loss or a receding hairline. Research suggests that hair transplantation significantly elevates self-esteem and also ensures a higher level of confidence. But that should not be the only reason to go for a hair transplant.

    You must ensure that you have taken into consideration all the above factors so that you can have successful hair transplantation that will ensure true value for money.

Healthy Ramadan – Make the Right Nutritional Choices

The holy month of Ramadan happens to be the Islamic calendar’s ninth month. Muslims all across the world fast during daylight for about 30 days to celebrate this.

This is the time to practice empathy, self-discipline, self-control and sacrifice for the less privileged. Of course, all of these should be followed even beyond this time, outside the hours of fasting.

Traditionally, one breaks the fast at sunset with a meal called Iftar and then eats again pre-dawn at Suhoor. There is evidence to suggest that fasting can have positive effects on your health.

The Ramadan end is marked with Eid-ul-Fitr – the celebration of Fast Breaking. Fasting can have a very positive impact on your health when done in the right way. Overindulgence at Iftar and Suhoor can lead to weight gain. Here are some quick tips to ensure that you have a healthy and happy Ramadan:

  • Hydrate Before Eating– It is always recommended that you drink plenty of foods like milk and freshly squeezed juices. This way you can prevent dehydration and offer essential fluids to your body. Remember that water is your best hydration source. You should drink 1-2 glasses of water before your meal and avoid going for water while having your meal. This will help you delay your process of digestion. Try to avoid drinks that contain a lot of calories and sugar.
  • Open Your Fast with Dates– Traditionally you always open your fast with dates and a glass of milk or water. Apart from the religious implications, there is also scientific reasoning behind this. Dates contain many health benefits and nutrients including helping with the reduction of blood pressure, the risk of colon cancer and heart disease and getting relief from constipation. Dates are also known for filling you up fast and they are great sources of energy that are released slowly. This will keep you going for a long time. That is why you should open your fast with a glass of milk and a handful of dates before starting to recite salaah. You won’t feel hungry even after praying this way.
  • Let Fibers be Your Friend– With skewed mealtimes and without the morning caffeine intake, constipation and gas can become the major problems for many. You should keep your gut moving by adding fiber to your meal. Fresh veggies and fruits, especially pears, are ideal. But eat 2 dried prunes or sprinkle wheat bran on the cereal to enhance your fiber intake during this phase.
  • Understand the Nutritional Needs– You should have foods enriched with carbohydrates, protein, minerals and vitamins and make it a point to drink a sufficient amount of water. At the same time, do not eat all you need at once during suhoor. Your body won’t be able to use the energy all at once and that can result in weight gain. This is because your body adapts to eating patterns during Ramadan. Adults must drink at least 4 liters of water a day. Although fruit juices, foods, mineral waters, tea and other sources account for 40% of that amount, you should still have about 1.5-2.5 liters of water per day. This implies that you should drink 2-3 glasses of water every hour from iftar to suhoor.
  • Avoid Sugar, Salt and Fast– Stay away from the heavy meals for iftar that have enhanced salt, fats and added sugar. At the time of cooking, you should make your favorite Ramadan recipes healthier by opting to bake, stew, steam, roast or grill and avoid frying. To flavor up your meals, go for adding spices and herbs instead of salts. Lastly, replace the sweetened drinks and sweets with naturally occurring sugar in dried fruits, fruits and fruit salads.

If you make the right nutritional choices, it will keep you healthy and going not just during Ramadan but all through life. It is permissible in Islam that those with a health condition like Diabetes can skip fasting. If you have any kind of health condition and are planning to fast, you should speak with your physician who can correctly guide you to manage your health during this time.

Pre and Post Cosmetic Surgery Care

Cosmetic surgery is a life-altering procedure and its popularity has augmented dramatically over the last decade.
As more and more people are taking things into their own hands and embracing the plastic surgery alternative, the attitude towards it is also changing.
People opt for cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons. While for some the priority is to look younger, others aim to change a feature that they dislike through this.
But you must have a clear reason to go for the surgery, set the right expectations and communicate the same with your surgeon to do away with any ambiguity and confusion.
However, for best results, the essential pre and post-surgery care must be taken up by the patients.
It is the combination of surgery and pre and post-op care treatments that bring out the most positive surgical results be it enhanced patient comfort and satisfaction, accelerated healing or improved appearance.

Why Pre and Post-Cosmetic Surgery Care Is Essential?

Discoloration, bruising, hyperpigmentation, erythema (reddening of the skin due to capillary dilation), milia (white, small cyst-like formations), dryness, itching and tightness can all be the common symptoms that can follow a cosmetic surgery.
The use of specialized pre and post-op care will prepare the body for faster healing from the surgery. This allows the body to react better to the trauma that accompanies a reconstructive surgery procedure.
By following a pre and post-op care program religiously, you help to speed up healing, recovery and reduce the advent of symptoms.
Now that you know these, let us dig into the pre and post-operative guidelines for plastic surgery patients.

Pre & Post-Operative Guidelines for Cosmetic Surgery Patients

Here are some of the do’s and don’ts that you should follow to ensure desired results from your surgery.

  • Discontinue Certain Medications – You should avoid medications containing Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Vitamin-E, blood thinners and all types of herbal supplements. These should be stopped at least a couple of weeks before the surgery and you should continue doing that till one week after the surgery.
  • Do Not Smoke for At Least a Month before Surgery – You should stop smoking for at least 30 days before the surgery and should continue with it for at least 2 weeks after. Smoking decreases the circulation to the skin, poses constraints in healing and can result in major post-operative complications.
  • Fill Your Prescriptions Prior to the Day of Surgery – You should fill your prescriptions before a day of surgery and keep them prepared at the bedside table. You should also keep a notepad with it. This will help in keeping track of the medications that you have consumed. Make it a point to take food before you take the medications to minimize the chances of nausea. You must avoid drinking alcohol or driving at the time of taking narcotic pain medication.
  • Report Any Infection or Cold – You should report any kind of infection or cold that may have appeared the week before the surgery. To avoid unnecessary complications, you may need to postpone your procedure for this.
  • Let Your Physician Know about Nausea or Motion Sickness – If you are prone to motion sickness and nausea, your physician should know that from before. To prevent nausea, routine anti-nausea medication can be provided to you in the operating room through your IV. Before you wake up from surgery steroids for swelling, antibiotics and pain medications can also be administered. Not just that, the physician can also prescribe medications to prevent the feeling of nausea at home.
  • Don’t Eat or Drink Anything 8 Hours Before the Scheduled Surgery Time – You should avoid eating or drinking anything about 8 hours before the surgery. Clear liquids like apple juice or water are however allowed up to 4 hours before the surgery.
  • Take Complete Bed Rest for the First 24 Hours after Surgery – Post-surgery the first 24 hours should be allotted for complete bed rest. You should not exercise or do any heavy lifting. Restrain from any kind of movement as much as possible. However, it is fine if you walk slowly when necessary.
  • Clean the Incisions Well – You should clean your incisions using hydrogen peroxide. Start having your daily shower about 2 days after surgery. But avoid using a swimming pool or a bathtub.
  • Call Your Doctor Immediately in Case of Emergency – If you experience increased swelling, severe pain, double vision, heavy bleeding, high fever, difficulty in breathing or discoloration at the site of the incisions, you should call your doctor without delay.

These are just some of the things that will help you to heal and get back to your feet as quickly as possible after you undergo cosmetic surgery. After all, it is your body and nobody can take better care of it except you.

Dermal Fillers – A Perfect Alternative for Skin Rejuvenation

Gone are the days when accepting the inevitability of aging was the only available option.
The cosmetic surgery industry is booming and it is not restricted to just those who desire to turn back time. Youngsters, as early as those in their 20s, are now opting for cosmetic procedures to correct and achieve their desired features.
But what if you get a more cost-effective yet popular alternative for facial rejuvenation that doesn’t require any surgical procedure?
Herein emerges the dermal fillers.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler has been the most preferred lip-plumping treatment for many years now. But it is capable of accomplishing much more.

The four major components that structurize the face are fat, skin, bones and muscles. But with age, volume loss in the structure of the face is a sure-shot thing. This results in the emergence of aging signs.

Age-related facial bone loss leads to jawline retraction, high cheekbones loss and nasal descent.

The facial muscles also reduce in elasticity and volume with age. Deflation and facial fat movement accentuate the aging signs further.

Dermal fillers are gel-like, soft substances that are injected below the skin. They can address a variety of common concerns including cheekbone lifting, deep under-eye circles smoothening, lip line smoothening, lip volumization, hand rejuvenation and smoothening of nasolabial folds (creases to the mouth corners).

So precisely, the dermal fillers are synthetic or naturally derived materials that are injected directly into the skin to plump that target area and remove the facial depression, wrinkle or fold.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers resolve several issues related to the aging of the face. Some of them are enlisted below.

  • Fillers add volume to the skin of the face and smoothen the creases between the mouth and the nose. These are called, as mentioned above, nasolabial lines or laugh lines.
  • They elevate and enable cheek augmentation which restores youthful look.
  • They even out vertical lines around the lip edges and plump up the thin lips.
  • The fillers reduce chickenpox scars and acne and even out skin undulations for smooth and plump skin.
  • They fill the depression areas under the eyes.
  • Dermal fillers increase volume by filling up the gauntness in the temple or lower cheek area which occurs because of the shifting of fat pads under the skin surface as we age.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

It is highly recommended to opt for fillers administered by experienced practitioners, He or she must be a licensed physician like a board-certified dermatologist.

Though otherwise safe, dermal fillers can also trigger several complications. Side effects and risks vary based on the particular type of filler used. The most common ones are –

  • Bruising or swelling
  • An over-filled look to areas treated
  • Hard areas or lumps in the sites of injection
  • Temporary numbness or redness
  • Hypersensitivity

If you are experiencing any of these side-effects, massaging or icing can bring immediate relief following the treatment.

You can notice the results instantly based on the product used and the areas treated. It is the individual, the area treated and the product used that play key roles in determining how long the results will last.

For maintaining the results, your dermatologist can recommend repeating the treatment by adjusting the techniques and the amount as necessary for optimal results.

How dermal fillers differ from Botox?

Botox and dermal figures are not the same even though both are injected under the skin with the help of a needle.

While botox is used mostly to relax the muscles and injected in or around the wrinkles surrounding the eyes or forehead, dermal fillers are the plump-agents used for smoothening the creases.

Both agents fulfill separate tasks and when used in the right combination, the result is a remarkably younger face free of aging signs.

Who can go for dermal fillers?

Anyone between the ages of 18 to 60 can try this procedure especially if they have sagging facial skin or are experiencing loss of suppleness, loss of fat in specific regions, acne scars, visible sun damage, scars from chickenpox and visible hollow areas under the eyes.
Thus dermal fillers can truly be a life-changing experience but it is up to you to decide whether for the better or for worse.
If you are thinking of trying this revolutionary procedure, you should immediately consult an experienced dermatologist who can guide you in the right direction and help you make the most of what this treatment has to offer.

All You Need to Know about Gynaecomastia

Many young men experience physical alterations during puberty because of enhanced hormones. One of them includes gynaecomastia or inflamed breast tissue.
Enlarged breast tissue is often a source of embarrassment for men. That is why the number of men seeking out surgery for gynaecomastia has been on the rise over the years.
While some men develop gynaecomastia in the latter part of their life because of lifestyle changes or augmented hormones, some fail to outgrow gynaecomastia that occurs at the time of puberty.
The prevalence of asymptomatic gynaecomastia is about 70% in 50-69 years aged men, 50-60% in adolescents and 60-90% in children.
Irrespective of the root cause, gynaecomastia surgery (male breast reduction surgery) is often the solution for men who are unhappy with their breast tissue size.

How to Detect Gynaecomastia?

Though gynaecomastia usually develops in both breasts, patients can also have unilateral or asymmetric breasts.

If you have gynaecomastia, self-examination of breasts usually demonstrates a tender, palpable, mobile, firm, disc-like tissue mound which is not as hard as that of breast cancer. It is located mid-way under the nipple-areolar region.

If the palpable mass is fixed, hard, unilateral, peripheral to the nipple and linked to skin alterations, nipple discharge or enhanced lymph nodes, breast cancer should be suspected. It is recommended to go for a thorough evaluation without delay with MRI and mammograms in that case.

What Causes Gynaecomastia?

Hormonal change occurring at the time of puberty is the most common cause of gynaecomastia. Apart from that, gynaecomastia is also caused by –

  • Heredity
  • Weight gain
  • Alcohol use
  • Excess production or consumption of estrogen
  • Liver/Kidney disease
  • Low testosterone
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Heart disease medications
  • Radiation or Chemotherapy
  • Amphetamines
  • Narcotics
  • Certain types of medications like proton pump inhibitors, anti-anxiety or antidepressants, HIV AIDS medications, antibiotics, etc.

Treatment for Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia is a condition that usually does not require any treatment to be resolved. But if there is a presence of an underlying condition then treatment becomes a necessity.
The patient may need to switch to another drug if the condition stems from one particular medication. The condition will be temporary if the patient is using the drug for only a short time.
However, if the condition does not reverse or get resolved within a couple of years it can lead to pain, embarrassment or tenderness. Under such circumstances, treatment is essential.
The treatment for gynaecomastia includes only a few options like hormone therapy to impede the effects of estrogens or breast reduction surgery.

Gynaecomastia Surgery

The breast is made up of fatty tissue which is super soft and glandular tissue which is dense and firm. The ratio varies from one individual to the other. A man with gynaecomastia can have an excess amount of both types of tissues.
Liposuction is one surgical option that is capable of removing excess fatty tissues. This involves the insertion of a small tube through a 3 or 4 millimeter incision.
Another option is excision which includes cutting out tissue with the help of a scalpel to do away with the augmented glandular tissue. This, however, leaves behind a scar surrounding the nipple edge.
The incision and the scar will be even larger if a major reduction in skin and tissue is called for.
In certain cases, both liposuction and excision need to be used. Post-surgery, the chest will be swollen and bruised. It can also be advised to the patient to put on an elastic pressure garment for a couple of weeks to reduce the swelling.
To return to normal life it will take about 6 weeks. The surgery complications like uneven contour to the chest, insufficient removal of tissues of the breast or reduced sensation to both or one of the nipples, are rare.
In some extremely unusual cases, excision can involve blood clotting which requires draining.

Recovery Post Surgery

In cases where just liposuction is required to correct the enlarged male breasts, it takes even less than a week for the patient to return to exercise and work.
Again, in cases, where the excess breast tissue is removed surgically it can take between 2-4 weeks for the patient to heal enough to bear the routine activities.
Usually, patients can get back to normal life after surgery after a maximum of 10 days. They can restart their cardio exercises at their gym post 2 weeks and weight lifting can be started after 4 weeks.
If you suspect that you have gynaecomastia then you should consult with a board-certified and experienced cosmetic surgeon and follow the advice provided religiously to ensure best results.

Ways to Prevent Maskne

Wearing the face mask has become the new norm after the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic. It is not just the most effective tool to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. It also shows that you care about yourself as well as others’ health.
But while masks can protect you from Coronavirus, they can also trigger skin breakouts.
Even though it is called Maskne (mask + acne), these breakouts are not limited to just acne. These can include everything from peeling skin and itchiness to rashes and acne.

What Causes Maskne?

Maskne involves a variety of skin conditions and the exact cause of the symptom can vary. Some of the most common ones are –

  • Bacteria, Oil and Dead Skin Cells – Maskne is most often the result of pores that are clogged. You may already have bacteria, oil and dead skin cells. But these substances can actually build up and block the pores when you wear a mask.
  • Humidity – The mask even traps the humidity because of sweating and breathing which may enhance the acne risks.
  • Friction – Friction is another possible cause. The material of the mask covering the face can rub against the skin leading to irritation and chafing.
  • Allergies – One may be allergic or sensitive to the material of the mask. Some of the masks feel rough on the skin and can be pretreated with the chemicals. Again, masks that are washed with the scented detergent can trigger irritation. So, it is best to wash them with non-scented detergents.

Now that you know these, let’s concentrate on the ways to prevent or treat Maskne.

Significant Ways to Treat Maskne

To prevent skin problems from cropping up beneath the mask, here are some vital tips. These are prescribed by Board-certified dermatologists.
Just take a look.

  • Wash the Face Regularly – You should never skip your regular skincare routine if you want to keep the skin healthy. This involves washing the face –
    • Once every night prior to retiring to bed
    • Once in the morning
    • Once after wearing the mask or sweating

    Use lukewarm water at the time of washing the face. Pat with a clean towel. Don’t rub the skin as that can cause irritation.

  • Cleanse and Moisturize Face Daily – Skin problems can be averted by gentle skincare. Always go for a mild and fragrance-less cleanser. Dry skin is a common skin problem triggered by face masks. This dryness can be reduced by adding a protective layer of moisturizer. Do not apply moisturizer immediately after washing the face. To make the most of your moisturizer, make sure that it contains Hyaluronic acid, Ceramides or Dimethicone. The latter creates a barrier that reduces irritated skin. The following guide can help you to choose the right moisturizer ideal for your skin type.
    • Normal or Combination Skin – Lotion
    • Oily Skin (when the weather is humid or hot) – Gel Moisturizer
    • Dry to Very Dry Skin – Cream

    A gel moisturizer can assist to prevent breakouts.

  • Choose the Right Mask Material – In order to avoid skin issues, you should take precautions regarding the type of masks you wear. Go for a mask that –
    • Is not too tight or fits snugly
    • Has 2 or more fabric layers
    • Is made of soft, light and natural fabric like cotton
  • Skip Make-up – You should not wear the makeup under the mask. The masks are occlusive barriers. Therefore, the trapped makeup can lead to breakouts and clogged pores. Your mask fabric can also get soiled by the makeup residue.
  • Toss The Used Surgical Masks Away – The surgical masks are not meant to be reused as there is not a good way to clean. The surgical masks are best used by only medical professionals. But if you do use disposable/surgical masks, you should not use the same mask more than once.
  • Wash the Masks Regularly – When you wear a reusable (cotton) mask, you should wash it after each use as the surface contains oil and dirt and can become the breeding ground for bacteria from the mouth and nose.
  • Every 4 Hours Remove Masks – The AAD suggests that you should take your mask off every 4 hours for 15 minutes to give your skin a break. You should do so after washing your hands and while maintaining physical distancing. The safe places to remove the masks are –
    • Inside the car when you are alone
    • At home
    • Outdoors when you can maintain 6 feet distance from anyone and everyone

If you don’t see any improvement even after implementing the above skincare regime, then you should talk with your dermatologist at the earliest.

Men Need Facials Too

Real men don’t cry! Real men don’t need any facial.
These are preconceived notions that we all have seen enough of. In this era, we should all hope that a new dawn emerges and we choose the well-being of the society and its people over erstwhile prejudices.
And as we try to witness life in a different light now, let us all understand why men need their share of aesthetic caring like that of facial.
There is a very common misunderstanding that implies that facials and men don’t go together. Even men think that facials are too complicated for them.
But the truth is that facials are one of the best things that a man can opt for his skin. More and more men, today, are striving to achieve a young and flawless skin. In fact, research suggests that almost 47% of the spa-goers are men.
Today specialized facials are available that are tailor-made to cater to men’s needs and issues.
Want to learn more regarding this? Let’s dig deeper.

What is Facial?

While “facial” is a familiar term, many of us still do not know what it includes.
Facial treatments include massaging of the face with lotions and creams, steaming with a hot steamer or towel and application of a face mask with the astringents and absorbents. They typically also include exfoliation and cleansing.

What Happens to Your Face When You Go for Facial?

Research suggests that after facial your skin feels revived and freshened up. You get supple and tightened skin with delayed emergence of wrinkles as a result of facials.
Now that you know what a facial is and what you can expect from the same, let’s understand the primary reasons to go for a facial.

Reasons Why Men Need Facials

The effect of UV rays of the sun, the skin damage from the shaving or just everyday wear and tear cannot be corrected by just rinsing with water and soap. And while women get regular facials, it is actually men who need that much more.
This is because men have larger pores, coarser skin and increased chances of getting sun-burnt.
Here are some of the reasons why men should opt for facials.

  • More Oil is Produced by Male Skin – As men have higher testosterone levels as compared to women, their skin creates much more oil. That is why they need a more thorough cleanse. The oil will clog the pores and lead to blackheads if not cleaned properly. This eventually leads to unwanted blemishes. During the procedure, the beautician can perform an extraction with which the dirt and oil clogs can be removed. This can lead to skin damage if you try to do it at home all by yourself. Now even though men produce more oils, it does not mean that all men have similar types of skin. The reason why facials are so effective is that they can be customized to suit the need of specific skin types. For example, if you have drier skin the expert will use more hydrating ingredients for the desired impact.
  • Reduction of Acne and Blackheads – Facials help to control breakouts and blackheads through deep cleansing. Because of the larger pores, male skin is often prone to acne and blackheads. Added to that, male skin is also almost 25% thicker than that of women. The expert cleanses the pores during the process which does not just decrease the size of enlarged pores but also prevents future breakouts. The facials include bio-abrasions and other intense exfoliation forms to do away with the stubborn blackheads that cannot be removed at home with the pore strip.
  • Smoother and More Precise Shave – Whether or not you shave every day or week, the incessant dragging of razor along the sensitive skin of the face can lead to irritation. Some of the common consequences of shaving are inflammations and burns that arise from gliding over pimples. Facials help to deep clean the bumps and soothe the irritated skin. The combo of essential oils, exfoliation, moisturizers and mask infusions used by the experts can alleviate the shaving side-effects making your skin smooth and beautiful. Your shaving becomes super-easy when your skin is devoid of bumps and is smooth.

These are some of the reasons that tell you why men need facials too and once you experience it, you are bound to come back time and again to restore the health and youthfulness of your skin.

Everything You Need To Know About Hyaluronic Acid

Who does not want a glowing and youthful skin? Hyaluronic Acid is a magic ingredient to plump the fine lines and regain the glow and youthfulness of your face.
From sheet masks to serums it can be found anywhere and everywhere. But what exactly is Hyaluronic Acid? Let’s understand.

What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?

HA or Hyaluronic acid is a kind of sugar found in the skin naturally. This holds water in the skin and assists in keeping it plump and hydrated. Doctors opine that the HA in the body holds about a thousand times its weight in water. This does not just help you to retain the moisture in the skin and joints. It also prevents the moisture from being evaporated.
Though the name includes the word “acid”, Hyaluronic acid is not an acid actually. Instead, it is a sugar type known as glycosaminoglycan. Within the body, HA binds with the water for creating a jelly-like substance. This substance enacts like a moisturizing lubricant and forms a cushioning impact between the skin fibers, the elastin and collagen and the lungs, muscles and tendons.
50% of the Hyaluronic Acid of the body can be found within the deeper dermis layers in the skin. HA can maintain a great balance of moisture in the skin which is one of the main components for the growth of the cells. It also assists in making the skin look healthy. Thus high levels of Hyaluronic Acid must always be retained within the skin.
When the skin lacks HA it leads to loss of elasticity and drying up of the skin which enhances the appearance of the wrinkles.

Production of Hyaluronic Acid

The production of HA today is synthetic through a bacterial method of production known as bacterial fermentation. The production cost of Hyaluronic Acid is quite high. That is why it comes with an expensive price tag. As said earlier HA has exclusive quality of binding moisture and that is why it is often added to skin-care products in low doses. This can assist in improving the moisture-locking abilities of the skin. 99% of water can be bound by just 1% concentration of HA. It is an extremely non-toxic and mild substance that does not cause any allergic reaction.

When to Use Hyaluronic Acid?

Some skincare ingredients like vitamin C work in the daytime while retinol is best used at night. Depending on the needs of your skin you should use HA serum twice daily. Masks can also be used intermittently when you want to include them in the boosting treatment especially before bedtime.

What are HA Injectables?

The injectables usually use a gel form of HA to add volume to the skin’s dermal layer. It just needs a few pricks and it smoothens the fine lines, plumps up the sunken areas and reduces the shadows. Then it dissolves over a year. This HA is bound in a gel carrier, in the case of fillers, that holds it in the place of injection. The HA creates the volume as it draws in water to the area that creates an effect of filling.
The side-effects are minimum. There are chances of experiencing some kind of bruising or swelling which can last for just a couple of days. The injectables are not without risks. They can be, in worst cases, injected into blood vessels or injected too superficially.
That is why the most vital thing to keep in mind when you are opting for any kind of fillers or injectables is to go to an experienced and certified professional or an aesthetic hospital of repute.
HA is considered to be safe in all types of injectables as it is produced in our bodies already. Hyaluronic Acid is used to treat multiple areas of the body from the nose to the feet. You can opt for it to even out nasal bumps and achieve the desired shape. It is also used to heal foot pain amongst the patients who have lost their heels’ cushioning. It can also be injected into the feet to enhance the bone padding and decrease the pain.
HA can easily be called the “Skin Saviour” for its beneficial effects on the skin. But ensure that you have it administered only by professionals in case of injectables. This is because if you get the quantity wrong it can have the opposite impact of drawing the moisture away instead of replenishing the skin.

What is Intimate Rejuvenation? Why is it Important?

Health trends have become the modern-day whims that come and go. But it is quite challenging to differentiate the really beneficial ones from the ones that are just hypes. Vaginal rejuvenation is a now trending topic but not many women understand it.

Research suggests that around 40% of women suffer from psychological distress arising from sexual dysfunction.

Vaginal Rejuvenation is increasingly becoming more popular by the day as the issues with aging and post-childbirth can be corrected with the help of this.

Remember that your feminine wellness is vital and it can really affect daily life.
So let us understand what Intimate Rejuvenation is.

What is Intimate Rejuvenation?

Intimate Rejuvenation is a short procedure that involves the tightening of the inner and outer structures and muscles of the vagina. This improves vaginal strength, muscle tones and control. With the help of advanced procedures like vaginal tightening, O-Shot, G-Shot, Fat transfer etc. multiple issues like urinary incontinence, absence of lubrication and lack of vaginal tightness can be corrected.

There are multiple ways to manage this like with the help of creams, injections, surgical and non-surgical processes. Surgical procedures include Monsplasty, Clitoral Hood Reduction, Vaginoplasty, Labiaplasty, while the non-surgical ones include O-Shot and G-Shot, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Q-switched Laser, Specialized Peels, Carboxy Therapy and Customized Fillers.

Why Women Should Opt for Intimate Rejuvenation?

The vagina is an elastic muscle and it can expand because of 2 reasons – age and childbirth. It expands in childbirth for many reasons. There are alterations in hormones with age that reduce muscle strength and surrounding connective tissues. The vagina can lose elasticity because of that. The lack of estrogen can make the vaginal walls thinner. This can make one feel a change in the diameter. This is known as vaginal atrophy. This is one reason why many women lose their confidence.

Herein comes the need for Intimate Rejuvenation.

Women may need Intimate Rejuvenation either to have a better life or for other cosmetic reasons. Post-child-birth, many experience Stress Urinary Incontinence. With Intimate Rejuvenation, all these things can be corrected.

Benefits of Intimate Rejuvenation

Here are some of the reasons why Intimate Rejuvenation is such a desirable treatment today.

  • Renewed Confidence – With the restoration of vaginal health, women experience enhanced sensation and pleasure. This does not just lead to a better intimate life but also boosts women’s confidence level, which in turn, helps in attaining better quality of life.
  • Enhanced Satisfaction – Improved pleasure is the most common reason why women seek enhancements in vaginal health. As the vaginal canal is tightened by the vaginal rejuvenation, the friction is increased at the time of intimacy. This ensures better stimulation and pleasure. Research suggests that about 90% of the patients who undergo Intimate Rejuvenation experience an improvement in their intimate life after the procedure. It is not just the vaginal structure that enhances the experience but the beautified aesthetic appearance that improves self-confidence resulting in enhanced libido. This enables women to get the groove back.
  • Much More Than Just Intimate Satisfaction– There are several reasons why women want to go for vaginal rejuvenation and most of these reasons have nothing to do with the intimate life. These reasons can involve reviving the vaginal structure leading to discomfort, visible scars surrounding the vagina and functional problems like trouble holding tampons, experiencing the popping sound at the time of doing yoga, facing problems in bowel movements passage and walking on other lighter activities.
  • Improved Overall Health – The benefits of Intimate Rejuvenation is not just confined to the bedroom. Vaginal dryness is a common concern that can be combatted with Intimate Rejuvenation. Plastic surgery can help to deal with urinary leaking or urinary incontinence.

Every woman always craves for a functional and healthy vagina. But like all other structures of the body, this elastic muscle-the vagina also loses its vitality with age and works less over time.

While exercising can assist in this case to a great extent, an effective Intimate Rejuvenation treatment can help you recover from your concerns completely and restore your confidence and youthfulness from within.

However, though this cosmetic procedure is absolutely safe, you should still make an informed decision so that you can make the most of this treatment. So, if you want to turn the clock back and counteract the signs of aging or childbirth, talk to your gynaecologist and know exactly what to expect.

Why Tummy Tuck is such a popular treatment these days?

A delectable silhouette is something that is craved by all.
But there is a difference between thinking about it and achieving it.
Even after rigorous diets and exercise a flatter tummy still seems to be a distant dream for many.
However, the good news is that many people now trust advanced surgeries like Tummy Tuck with the help of which one can get exactly what is desired for without rigorous efforts or extreme diet.
Tummy Tuck can bring about dramatic changes to eliminate fat tissues from the midsection of the body and also firm up the abdominal muscles.
Naturally it is one of the essential wish-list inclusions around the world. But prior to opting for this miracle treatment, you should know exactly what Tummy Tuck is!

What is Tummy Tuck?

Abdimonplasty or Tummy Tuck is more commonly known as a cosmetic surgery that tightens the muscles and helps to get rid of fat and skin from the abdomen in order to make it look toned and flat.
This is mostly associated with “Mommy Makeovers” which helps in restoring the figure post pregnancy. This is also used to assist patients who have undergone massive weight loss within a short period of time.
Tummy Tuck is not just used for cosmetic reasons, but it also improves a number of medical conditions.

Who Are the Best Tummy Tuck Candidates?

Tummy Tuck is an ideal treatment for both men and women who are healthy.
Women undergoing several pregnancies can find this procedure useful for reducing skin and tightening abdominal muscles.
Tummy Tuck is also great for those who are obese and still have loose skin or excess fat deposits around the belly.

Who Should Not Opt for Tummy Tuck?

If you are woman and are planning to get pregnant then you should postpone a Tummy Tuck till you are done having children. At the surgery time, the vertical muscles are tightened up. But future pregnancies can separate these.
Again, if you are planning to lose weight, then a Tummy Tuck is also not something that you should consider. The Tummy Tuck is the last resort, when you have tried everything else and nothing has worked. You should not think that to be an alternative to weight loss.
Now that you know who are eligible for a Tummy Tuck and who are not, let us understand the major perks that Tummy Tuck brings to the table.
Benefits of Tummy Tuck Although you may have a healthy weight, the stubborn skin laxity and fat deposits can make the clothing look less comfy and tight even when they fit properly around the other areas of the body like hips and bust.
Many are also disappointed when a certain portion of their body does not match with the beautiful contour that they achieved post weight-loss. This discourages them to wear bolder clothes, too.
Post Tummy Tuck your midsection will be more streamlined and smoother allowing you to find clothing that fit more comfortably and attractively.
Apart from a flatter abdomen and enviable waistline with naturally leaner body contour, Tummy Tuck also brings a bouquet of advantages that benefit you for life.
Some of the perks of Tummy Tuck are enlisted here –

  • Reduction of Stress Urinary Incontinence – Amongst women who have gone for vaginal birth, stress incontinence is quite common. Those suffering from this experience uncontrollable bladder that leaks even when sneezing or laughing or coughing.
    This can naturally be the source of stress for those experiencing a leaking bladder especially while attending a social event or when he or she is at a work place.
    One of the major benefits of Tummy Tuck is that it reduces this condition whereby the surgeon creates a bladder obstruction with the usage of soft tissues available near the pelvic region.
  • Better Posture – One of the perks of Tummy Tuck is the toning and tightening of the muscles in the abdomen. It is because of the tighter muscles that patients should see their posture improve post-surgery.
    This also reduces the chances of patients of getting sway back or lordosis. The Tummy Tuck also relieves people of some types of back pain.
  • Easier Weight Loss & Management – The bariatric patients undergoing the surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass and adjustable gastric band keep the lost weight off when they combine surgeries with Tummy Tuck.
    Patients undergoing such combined surgeries regain just 1 pound per year. But patients who have not had a Tummy Tuck gain almost 4 pounds per year.
    Moreover, Tummy Tuck patients also have an enhanced exercise tolerance. This implies that you can have an easier time while exercising. The activities also become more enjoyable as the confidence level rises.
  • Correction of Ventral Hernia – Ventral Hernias occur when the abdomen muscles get weakened which in turn allows the abdominal muscles to push through. This can be an extremely powerful condition which can affect your quality of life and ability to perform some tasks.
  • The weakening in the muscle walls can be tackled through Tummy Tuck. The abdominal muscles are also tightened during this time to prevent the recurrence of hernia.

  • Elimination of Stretch Marks – Stretch marks happen to be a very common and irritating problem for women after weight gain or pregnancy. It can be difficult for women to get rid of those white lines that can make them more conscious while wearing a bathing suit.
    Tummy Tuck effectively does away with loose skin in the region from the bikini line to the belly button. So, stretch marks are removed by this as well.
    As opposed to creams and other treatments for stretch marks, Tummy Tuck eliminates those unsightly lines once and for all enabling permanent solution.

It is because of all these reasons that Tummy Tuck has become such a sought-after treatment procedure today. In spite of the considerable recovery time, the long-term perks brought forth by this therapy make this a hot favourite amongst the celebrities, the athletes as well as your next-door neighbours and friends.

Does IV Therapy Really Work?

Health & Beauty Benefits of Hydration IV Drip.

Not feeling like getting out of bed? Are you lately being prone to infections or health conditions? Not being able to get over last night’s party hangover?

IV therapy has soared in popularity in the recent years. From social media influencers to celebrities – IV therapy has become the most sought-after treatment procedures amongst all.
This just takes 45 minutes to be executed and people claim that even serious conditions like Parkinson’s Disease, Cancer and more are benefitted by IV therapy.

What is IV Therapy?

IV vitamin therapy administers minerals and vitamins into the bloodstream through a needle that goes into the veins directly. This way you can obtain more nutrients as you do not have to go through the process of digestion.
The providers of this treatment customise the formula of minerals and vitamins on the basis of the requirements of the patient. These can range from energy boost to achieving the desired skin glow, from immunity enhancement to hangover reduction.

Does IV Therapy Really Work?

IV therapy does not just enhance physical wellness. But it also improves the emotional wellness like anxiety or depression by providing tools to your body that help to maintain it in top condition.
When the body has the ideal balance of nutrients and vitamins for performing normal functions, you will feel better, enjoy mental clarity and get sick less frequently.
Each and every day your body calls for a certain intake of nutrients and vitamins to maintain normal functions. Though the exact level varies but the day-to-day demands of life can make it challenging to consume proper amounts of these essential ingredients.
Even when you take multivitamins your body may fail to absorb all the nutrients because of the process of metabolism. Moreover, some people also have impaired absorption that decreases the ability to convert nutrients into energy cells that really work.
So, this goes without saying that IV Therapy is quite effective.

Health & Beauty Benefits of IV Hydration Treatments

Fluids happen to be an inefficient way to enhance hydration. The water that you drink after a workout is mostly absorbed by the throat or along the digestive system.
But all the tissues in the body must be hydrated.
The Hydration IV therapy injects the fluids into the body where it is needed the most. It is a more efficient and faster way to hydrate the body.
Here are some of the major benefits that IV Hydration Treatments can bestow upon you.
Enhance Immunity and Wellness – For proper functioning of the body everybody needs proper amounts of vitamins and nutrients. While the vitamin amount and nutrients vary from one person to another, a busy routine or unconventional lifestyle can prevent you from daily requirements. Additionally, people who lack absorption can convert nutrients into energy. The IV therapy brings forth and offers the body the nutrients and vitamins that are required for

  • Energy Enhancement
  • Anxiety Reduction
  • Immune Health Improvement
  • Fatigue Combat
  • Maintenance of the Strength of Tissues and Muscles
  • Fighting Off Allergies and More

Boost Immunity – Stress, poor diet and lack of sleep can all take a toll on your health. You get more susceptible to sickness if your immune health diminishes. The IV vitamin therapy strengthens the immunity by delivering the nutrients that the body needs for combatting ailments. The ingredients like Zinc and Vitamin C are said to be powerhouses of immunity and they work together to ensure that the illness does not stand any chance.
Lose Weight and Reduce Calories – Hunger can signify that you are dehydrated. Now replacing the caloric beverages with IV infusion and water can trigger weight loss and overall calories. This still yields results and offers max benefit.
Flush Toxins Out of the System – Dehydration affects the body in multiple ways. It can lead to variety of issues with the digestive tract. It can damage the liver and kidneys, and this can build up toxins in your body. This also takes a toll on the functioning of the vital organs. The liver and kidneys work towards filtering out the toxins and then eliminate those. Your body fails to get rid of all the toxins by drinking fluids as the process is very slow. IV therapy delivers the fluids in proper amounts to every organ and boosts your overall health.
Care for Your Skin – Your skin contains plenty of water. But the dehydration is capable of making the skin dry. The fact is that the skin needs water like the rest of the internal organs. You can keep the skin soft by staying hydrated and this also enhances your overall glow. Again, if you have dark circles and puffy eyes then it implies that you are not having sufficient amount of sleep. Having IV Infusion helps in alleviating a huge amount of stress. The added perks include regulated body temperature, enhanced circulation and flushing out toxins that can cause sleep loss.
Ensure Better Joint and Muscle Health – Muscle aches, joint pain and dry skin are signs of inadequate hydration. However, drinking water is not going to solve these problems. Hydration IV therapy is going to improve the skin health. The powerful influx of nutrients and fluids flushes toxins from the different areas and assists in restoration of the full health.
These are just some of the ways in which IV Hydration Therapy boosts your health and triggers an overall wellbeing that transforms you inside out.

Drive away winter skin blues with these essential skincare tips

Snuggling up in bed during the cosy nights – one of the best winter memories!
But winter does not provide many reasons to create warm memories for your skin. On the contrary, it happens to be quite unforgiving towards it.
The dry and cold air robs the skin off the moisture and can leave the skin reddened, irritated, and itchy. It can even lead to eczema, dry skin, and psoriasis.
This season zaps the moisture out of the skin as well as air. Therefore, winter can truly wreak havoc on your skin, and you need to follow an effective winter skin care regime to combat this.
Now choosing from a variety of skincare products for winter can be a tormenting and confusing process. It is daunting to decide the right cleanser, moisturizer, toner, scrub for you.
But it all boils down to the quintessential double factors – the skin type and the season of the year.

The skin type can range from being dry, oily, sensitive to acne-prone and combination. Once you detect your skin type, all you have to do are a few adjustments and you are sorted!
Here are some of winter skincare essentials that people irrespective of their skin type should follow.

  • Cleansing – The first step of your skincare is cleansing. It removes dirt, makeup, excess oils, and other skin build-ups. Double cleansing where an oil-based cleanser breaks down the dirt or makeup on the skin followed by gel or foam cleanser that removes everything else, has become quite popular in recent years. However, you should not go overboard as it can rip the skin off the natural oils especially if you have a dry skin. Opting for professional cleansing at least once or twice every moth is also recommended during the cold dreary months.
  • Toning – The toner assists in achieving the pH balance of the skin. You can take a small amount of toner on cotton and wipe it all over your face or you can sprinkle a mild toner all over the face. By using the right toner you do not just tighten the pores but also give your skin an awesome glow.
  • Exfoliation – Once or twice a week you can also use an exfoliator that can remove the dead skin cells and keep the skin looking glowing and beautiful. For sensitive skin a mild exfoliator with a reduced glycolic acid percentage is most suitable. However, don’t go for scrubbing too often as this can damage the skin.
  • Moisturization – The moisturizer’s job is to assist in hydration and softening of the skin. Searching for the right formula is critical here. It should be able to nourish and restore the skin suppleness in an efficient way without making it look heavy and greasy.
  • Sun Protection – This is one of the most crucial aspects about your winter skin care. It is not only the summer months, but sun protection is essential during the winter months, too. The UVA and UVB rays give rise to aging, wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and more. That is why professional tan removal is also essential from time to time during the winter months.

Now that you know the routine, let us understand what precautions you should take to keep the winter skin blues at bay.

  • Drink Lots of Water – We often forget to drink sufficient amount of water when it is cold outside. But the dry weather is likely to strip the skin off the moisture. You should therefore try to sip all through the day instead of gulping down water or fluids all at once. Trying out the warm winter tea like lemon and ginger tea is a wonderful way to keep yourself hydrated and cozy in the winter times. One the most effective way to deal with this is Hydration IV Therapy that injects the fluid directly into the bloodstream so that those parts of the body that need the most get the fluid. It is a more effective and faster way to hydrate the body.
  • Use Water That is Not Too Hot – It is quite tempting to go for hot and comfy showers especially when the temperature is dipping. But avoid this practice if you love your skin. The hot showers dry up your skin and if you fail to moisturise immediately, it can cause winter eczema and cracks. Once you take a lukewarm shower go for a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acids. This will prevent the dryness and keep the moisture barrier intact.
  • Stay Protected – As winter is a very harsh season it is essential that you be prepared for it. The combo of strong winds and low humidity can lead to cracked and dry skin. It is essential for you to wrap up with gloves and scarf. These will protect the sensitive region around the neck and hands. You should go for thin and breathable base layers to avoid skin irritations arising from wearing heavy clothing constantly.
  • Take Care of Your Diet- You should opt for a lot of seasonal fruits and veggies. Berries are great sources of antioxidants and vitamins that the skin requires for staying healthy during the cold and harsh winters. Grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or just cherries – go with anything that you love. Again, if you think that you are not having enough water, then you can get hydrated by having lots of veggies and fruits and items like salads, soups, milk, and juices. That way your body can get the nutrients that it wants.
  • Work Out – It is quite right that leaving the cosiness of the quilt during the winter months is quite challenging. But if you love your skin it is vital to exercise. This pumps up the blood to the skin and organs. During the dreary months, the body’s sweat and oil glands and the blood vessels get constricted a bit. Working out helps your body to break free of these restrictions and thus restore its natural glow.

The tips mentioned here are not so difficult to follow. But adhering to them can take you a long way and help you to take care of your skin. If you follow these you can rest assured that your skin will remain supple, youthful, and glowing all through the dry and cold months.

6 Common Anti-wrinkle Injection and Dermal Filler Myths Debunked

Are the fine lines and wrinkles around lips and on your face getting you all worked up?
Then the thought of anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers must have crossed your mind!
But there are quite a few stereotypes that come along with the word “anti-wrinkle injection” or “dermal filler” and what each one entails.
The first thoughts that can come to your mind whenever you hear about these cosmetic treatments can be of a swelled up face or super-wealthy celebrities trying hard to cling to their youth or relentless hospital visits.
You can also get overwhelmed by picturing someone with a frozen face (anti-wrinkle injection gone horribly wrong!) who fails to drink liquids normally and struggles to even smile.
While your bestie swears by anti-wrinkle injection, you may have heard hundreds of words of caution from your neighbour who is weary about it!
Thankfully, these are nothing but myths that cropped out of nowhere and started being associated with anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers.
Prior to venturing into or trying out any kind of treatment, it is always advisable that you learn about it.
Hence let’s try to understand what exactly anti-wrinkle injection and dermal filler are!
Well, anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments and they have been used in cosmetic medicine for about 20 years or more.

What is Anti-wrinkle Injection?

Anti-wrinkle Injection is a Clostridium Botulinum derivative and it was originally created to treat patients with muscle spasms, especially eye twitching and eye spasms. Soon doctors realised how the injections reduced the fine lines surrounding the eyes.
Ever since, it is used for treating the wrinkles and fine lines and it helps to rejuvenate and retrieve the youthful skin.

What is Dermal Filler?

Now while anti-wrinkle injection is an injection that affects the underlying muscles, dermal fillers add volume to different flat or hollow facial regions.
There are 3 primary groups of fillers like – thick, medium and thinner. These are used for addressing fine lines including under-eye circles, temples, cheekbones, ear lobes, lip and lip lines, smile lines and corners of mouth.
Now that you know about anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers and how they differ, let us try to debunk the most common myths that we hear about both anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers.

Myth 1 – Anti-wrinkle Injection is Toxic & Dermal Fillers are Made from Toxins

Fact – The anti-wrinkle injection is a mix of neurotoxin and protein. The negative outcome can result only if an exorbitantly high amount is administered. Botulism can be caused by large amount of Clostridium Botulinum. When a miniscule amount is injected for cosmetic reasons, then it is incapable of getting into the central nervous system or causing damage. Anti-wrinkle Injection is FDA approved and only a huge amount can prove dangerous.
Dermal fillers are often said to be made of plastics or toxins or silicone. But on the contrary, hyaluronic acid is used for making derma fillers and that is present in the skin naturally. It is a powerful moisturizer and is found in a plethora of beauty products as well. Dermal fillers can make the skin look hydrated and plump naturally. They also boost the collagen production that slows down with age.

Myth 2 – Once You Opt for Anti-wrinkle Injection or Fillers You Have to Keep on Taking Them

Fact – Some believe that if you start taking dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injection injections once, then your skin is going to wrinkle or sag more if you stop the treatments. But nothing can be further from truth. Your skin starts looking exactly how it looked prior to the beginning of the treatment once the anti-wrinkle injection or dermal fillers treatment wears away. Most people don’t want the effect to wear off. So they continue with them for years together.

Myth 3 – Anyone Can Do Them

Fact – Every spa and salon now offers cosmetic fillers and anti-wrinkle injection. But experts opine that such treatments need an expert like a doctor or surgeon to be executed. Getting those injections happens to be a medical procedure which implies that it must be performed in the office of the medical professionals. You should also ensure that you choose an aesthetic centre or hospital that is properly licensed and has gained a name for authentic and safe treatments.

Myth 4 – Fillers and Anti-wrinkle Injection Are Extremely Painful

Fact – There is always some amount of discomfort at the time of having cosmetic injections but they are not unbearable. In fact many compare the filler or anti-wrinkle injection sensation to that of a mosquito bite. So it is far from being excruciating.
Fillers can be a little more painful. But they come with a numbing agent for minimizing the discomfort which makes the procedure smooth. The experts at renowned hospitals also use other agents or massage therapies to nullify any kind of discomfort or pain ensuring a comfortable procedure.

Myth 5 – Fillers and Anti-wrinkle Injection Cannot Be Used Together

Fact – Fillers and anti-wrinkle injection when used together can provide incredible results. Dermal fillers are usually disintegrated as they are temporary and they are often absorbed by the tissues surrounding the target area.
On the other hand, anti-wrinkle injection is used often to inhibit the movement of muscles. So when anti-wrinkle injection in injected in the area similar to the filler, it can assist the filler to last long. You can have filler and anti-wrinkle injection injected in one session.

Myth 6 – Anti-wrinkle Injection and Fillers Can Cause Swelling, Redness and Other Side-effects

Fact – The reactions of individual patient can vary from one person to the other but the side-effects are temporary and mild. The site of every injection can look a little swollen and pink for about 20 minutes prior to subsiding. At times patients may get bruised which is a possibility for any needle treatment and so it is advisable that you should not take any kind of blood thinners or aspirin before the treatment. But in most cases, patients can get back to normalcy immediately after the treatment.
Side-effects from cosmetic fillers are not at all frequent if they are given to someone by a medical expert. You may notice a little bruising, tenderness and swelling post the injection but all that gets cleared within a week if not sooner.
Now that you know these, you should steer clear of the myths and opt for anti-wrinkle injection and dermal fillers for a revived, glowing and youthful skin without any worry.
