According to a new report in the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a majority of men and women find breasts with a ratio of 45:55 to be “perfect.” With this ratio, 45 percent of breast tissue is above the nipple and 55 percent is below. This is typically considered a natural and unenhanced look.
Of the 1,315 respondents asked to rank the attractiveness of breasts for this survey, 87 percent of women and 90 percent of men identified the 45:55 ratio as perfect. 94 percent of the 53 plastic surgeons surveyed held this same opinion.
Have you heard the ads about laser liposuction? Laser assisted liposuction is heavily marketed these days, so you may be hearing about it a lot. Unfortunately, it is not as effective as ultrasonic and tumescent liposuction. There is also a high incidence of skin burns with laser liposuction.
Laser Liposuction vs. Ultrasonic Liposuction
Laser assisted liposuction and ultrasound assisted liposuction both liquefy the fat cells before they are removed from the body. The purpose of liquefying the fat is a...
Liposuction will not tighten loose skin, and if you have poor elasticity it will make your loose skin even worse. Depending on the body part affected, a procedure such as tummy tuck, thigh lift, or arm lift is the appropriate treatment for loose skin. You said you have fatty deposits as well, those can be treated with liposuction in conjunction with a procedure to remove the excess skin.
When liposuction is used alone, good skin tone and elasticity are a must for good results. When the skin is in good...
Ultrasonic, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat before it is removed from your body. The fat is then removed smoothly with less trauma to the tissue and, therefore, less bruising, swelling, and downtime. This approach also targets denser fat deposits more effectively, for beautiful results even with the most stubborn pockets of fat.
Ultrasound is a high pitched sound wave that is not detectable to the human ear. When used in liposuction, it creates a...
It is possible that you will start accumulating more fat in other areas of your body after liposuction, but only if you gain weight. It is not something that just happens automatically, as some believe. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, the cells in which fat is stored, and those cells do not grow back unless you experience massive weight gain. With minor weight gain you should still maintain your improved body proportions, but for best results you must maintain the healthy weight you achieved before undergoing liposuction....
The ideal candidate to benefit from liposuction is close to his or her ideal weight and has good skin tone. Liposuction improves body contour by removing stubborn pockets of fat which have not responded to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed almost anywhere on your body, and can even be used to correct a double chin. Liposuction is not used to help you lose weight, but to put the finishing touches on weight loss, so you can enjoy the full benefits of your hard work.
The areas most commonly treated with liposuction are the abdomen, waistline, back, saddle bags, back of thighs, inner thighs and knees. However, liposuction is effective for body shaping wherever there is excess fat. Double chin can be corrected with liposuction. In men, liposuction can be used to reduce breasts (gynecomastia). Very targeted procedures are also used to define and enhance the appearance of breasts, pectoral muscles, and abdominal muscles.
Surgical liposuction is totally different from newly advertised spa procedures that are often advertised these days. The effectiveness and predictability of non-surgical alternatives to liposuction is questionable. You need to be aware that non-surgical “lipo” procedures are not the same as liposuction and do not accomplish the same thing. Surgical liposuction is targeted, predictable and effective.

There are two traditional techniques used for rhinoplasty procedures:
Closed, in which incisions are made inside of the nostrils
Open, in which incisions are made both inside and outside the nostrils
While open rhinoplasty may be necessary in some situations, board-certified Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai has found the closed technique to be suitable under nearly all circumstances. The best way to learn which technique is best for you is through a one-on-one rhinoplasty consultation at our comfortable Dallas, Texas office.
