Why Summer Is the Perfect Season for a Tummy Tuck

woman on beach in bikiniWith the summer season in full swing, you’ve probably either gone swimsuit shopping or pulled out your old bathing suit to enjoy some time in the pool. Relaxed and comfortable are two words that should describe you, but if you’re like most women, putting on a bathing suit does not bring those words to mind. Many women are frustrated with sagging skin on their abdomen from pregnancy or weight loss, and any excess fat in that area seems impossible to remove with diet and exercise alone. Even stretch marks will not go away with the most expensive products.

Dr. Rodriguez Sierra performs the tummy tuck (“abdominoplasty”) to help remedy all of these swimsuit season insecurities. After only one to two weeks of recovery time, you can experience true relaxation and comfort with your new slender, sculpted midsection.

Is Tummy Tuck Surgery Right for Me?

To create the ideal result, Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra will first address the abdominal muscles. Many times these muscles are stretched due to pregnancy or weight gain, causing the abdomen to protrude unnaturally even when there is not a significant amount of fat present. Once the muscles are tightened, any excess fat in the upper or lower abdomen is removed with liposuction. The skin is then redraped over the new abdominal contours to provide the most natural-looking, feminine result. If stretch marks are located on the skin that is removed, they will also be permanently eliminated.

If you do not need a full abdominoplasty, Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra can perform a mini tummy-tuck, which addresses fat, excess skin, and stretch marks in the lower abdomen only. Both procedures will result in a scar that can be easily hidden beneath most styles of swimsuit bottoms. Although there will be a scar near your bikini line, it will fade significantly over time and will be a small trade-off for the beautifully sculpted body you will achieve with this procedure.

Many women choose to combine a tummy tuck with other procedures, such as a breast augmentation, breast lift, or liposuction on the thighs or buttocks for a total body transformation. Many surgeons refer to these combined procedures as a “Mommy Makeover” because they address the areas of the body that pregnancy so often changes.

If warmer weather has you thinking about a body contouring procedure like a tummy tuck, please schedule your consultation with Dr. Jaime Rodriguez Sierra today by calling (888) 478-4690 or filling out our online contact form today. We look forward to hearing from you!

Rejuvenate Your Eyes With Blepharoplasty

A young woman looking in a compact mirror and pulling up on here eyelids on a white backgroundAging is a natural process of changes over time, and changes in the skin are one of the most noticeable signs of aging. Environmental factors, heredity, nutrition, and sun exposure are some of the most important elements that determine skin quality. As the skin is negatively affected by these factors, the connective tissue in the skin changes and strength and elasticity are reduced. This leads to poor skin quality and the development of loose skin and wrinkles.

Windows to the Soul

The eyes convey a great deal of emotion and meaning; a simple look can often be more powerful than words. Most people look at a person’s eyes when they first meet or encounter them, which makes signs of aging around the eyes among the most visible and detrimental of physical characteristics. Drooping eyelids with wrinkles and loose skin can make us appear tired, sad, or even angry despite our actual mood. Fortunately, Dr. Jaime Rodriguez Sierra offers eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to provide his patients with a rejuvenated facial appearance.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery removes excess fatty deposits and loose skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids (depending on the patient’s needs) to restore a more youthful, friendly, and alert appearance.

Blepharoplasty can improve the following conditions:

  • Puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Bags below the eyes
  • Drooping upper and lower eyelids
  • Loose skin/folds
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Impaired vision

Drooping upper eyelids may hang down and partially block a person’s vision. Eyelid surgery can restore a person’s vision by eliminating the excess fat and skin that contribute to this drooping. Eyelid surgery also can correct sagging lower eyelids that may hang down and show the white part of the eye below the colored iris.

As excess fat deposits and sagging skin that cause bags, puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines are eliminated from around the eyes, patients look better rested and attain a more youthful, healthy, and happy appearance.

Minimally Invasive Facelift

woman's faceMen and women who have wrinkles and sagging skin in their lower face, jowls, and neck are ideal candidates for a traditional facelift. This procedure can make you appear up to ten years younger by literally lifting and removing excess skin and tightening the muscles beneath it. It is often combined with eyelid surgery or brow lift surgery to provide even more stunning results.

But even with the increased confidence a traditional surgical facelift brings, many are concerned with the cost, length of recovery time (about two weeks), and longer scars that are often involved. Over the years, Dr. Rodriguez Sierra has listened to these concerns from his patients and now offers a wonderful alternative that will meet their needs: a minimally invasive facelift. Since the minimally invasive facelift involves only a few short incisions, recovery time is faster, and scars are much smaller than with a full surgical facelift. In addition, the procedure is typically more affordable and also takes less time to perform.

Advantages of a Minimally Invasive Facelift

  • Shorter scars
  • Less time in surgery
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Affordable

Dr. Rodriguez Sierra can completely customize the minimally invasive facelift by combining a number of techniques depending on the patient’s individual needs. The procedure can be performed with the either the help of a laser or a specially designed viewing scope (endoscope) that is made for small incisions. In addition, other procedures or treatments can be performed at the same time that will tighten the skin or fill facial hollows and wrinkles that the minimally invasive facelift may not target. The result is a more defined jawline and a refreshed, wrinkle-free, natural-looking facial appearance.

Whether you are seeking a subtle improvement or a total facial transformation, Dr. Rodriguez Sierra is equipped with the skills and experience necessary to provide the most natural-looking results. During your consultation, he will assess your needs to determine the treatment or procedure that is right for you.
