Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

Brazilian Tummy Tuck Surgery

The Avelar abdominoplasty is a tumescent liposuction-assisted tummy tuck procedure that was developed during the 1990s in Brazil. Patients who are looking for a less invasive alternative to the traditional tummy tuck may be ideal candidates for an Avelar abdominoplasty. Dr. Paine performs the Avelar abdominoplasty surgery.

Should You Consider Avelar Abdominoplasty

An Avelar Abdominoplasty tummy tuck serves a similar purpose to that of the traditional tummy tuck, but focuses on the lower region of the abdomen. Men and women who are struggling with excess skin around the lower abdomen may find this procedure an excellent alternative. The Avelar abdominoplasty can also reduce stubborn fat in the midsection.

The Avelar abdominoplasty is designed to minimize patient discomfort and recovery time—providing men and women with an attractive, less-invasive alternative to the traditional tummy tuck. Men and women who are unhappy with a significant abdominal bulge or paunch would benefit from an Avelar tummy tuck. However, those with larger amounts of hanging skin may not be right for this procedure. A determination can be made during the initial consultation with your doctor.

Abdominoplasty Tummy Tuck Steps

Dr. Paine will perform your abdominoplasty tummy tuck surgery using anesthesia. Rather than the long, horizontal incision that is used with a traditional tummy tuck, Dr. Paine will make a series of smaller incisions along the abdomen. Tumescent liposuction is then used to reduce excess fat from the upper and lower abdomen. Dr. Paine will then carefully stretch the abdominal skin downward to reposition it for a firmer, slimmer look, and feel.

After Your Avelar Abdominoplasty

Recovery from an Avelar abdominoplasty will be quicker than that of a traditional tummy tuck. You should be able to return to work and normal activity within to 2 weeks. Dr. Paine will provide you with a compression garment, which you will need to wear for a few weeks to help minimize swelling.

Once you are fully healed, you will notice a slimmer and well-toned abdomen. Your skin will feel tighter, and you should be able to see more definition of your abdomen. In order to maintain long-term results, it is important to stick to a healthy lifestyle.

CoolSculpting® Fat Freezing

Are you struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Does it seem like exercise and diet aren’t enough to help trim your physique? If so, you aren’t alone. Plenty of other people struggle with losing weight just like you are. Thanks to an innovative new procedure known as CoolSculpting, you can get the results you desire without any surgery. Not only are results long-lasting, but CoolSculpting is completely safe and can help to leave you looking stunning from each and every angle.

CoolSculpting Works to Freeze Your Fat Away

IllustrationProcess-H_loresWhen you think about trying to get the fat off your body, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Probably not using the power of cold to get the job done, that’s for sure. However, CoolSculpting can actually help to selectively eliminate stubborn fat pockets that have been driving you crazy for quite some time. CoolSculpting’s innovative new technology is aimed at delivering a precise deep-cooling to effectively target those hard-to-lose fat cells that lie underneath your skin. This process is known as Cryolipolysis.

The frozen fat cells will end up crystallizing before being naturally eliminated from your body. Over the course of a couple months, your body is going to naturally process all of the excess fat and eliminate dead fat cells. In the end, you are going to be left with a whole new you that is more lean and sculpted.

No Extensive Surgery Needed to Shed Fat

One of the best things about the whole CoolSculpting non-surgical procedure is that you don’t have to worry about going through any extensive surgery to get rid of the excess fat. This fat-freezing procedure has been cleared by the FDA. You also don’t have to worry about any lengthy recovery time, which is why this is one of the most popular sculpting procedures today. Instead of having to worry about the fat coming back time and time again, CoolSculpting gets rid of it once and for all, and you can maintain your slimmer shape with a healthy diet and exercise.

Understanding the Ins and Outs of CoolSculpting

One of the first things you need to do is to speak with Dr. Paine to determine which areas you want to treat. CoolSculpting is most commonly used to treat the abdomen, flanks, and bra area.

During the CoolSculpting procedure in Beckley, the handheld CoolSculpting device will be positioned directly on your body. Once in place, a controlled cooling is used to freeze the underlying fat. No anesthesia is required, so you are free to check your email, read your favorite book, watch television, or even take a nice nap throughout the hour-long procedure. Since the procedure is virtually painless, you will be relaxed and rested in no time.

Controlling the Shape of Your Body with CoolSculpting

Instead of only being able to reduce fat in one part of your body, you can now reduce fat from multiple areas all in one session. While the results from just one treatment are often remarkable, further treatments can help to enhance the results even further for a greater slimming and reduction of fat. Working along with Dr. Paine at Mountain State ENT & Aesthetics in West Virginia, you can develop a treatment plan that is going to work for your specific needs and wants.

No Worries about a Lengthy Recovery Process

Since the CoolSculpting procedure isn’t about surgery, you don’t have to worry about waiting a long period of time to recover. You can get back to all of your favorite activities within a short period of time—often right after your treatment. Whatever you love to do, get out there and do it. No need to wait.

During the next few months, your body is going to continue eliminating and processing all of the fat cells that you had treated during the procedure. As soon as the fat cells have been taken care of by your body, they are gone once and for all, and your new shape can be kept that way as long as you stay healthy, exercise, and eat right.

Liposuction in Beckley

Liposuction is an extremely effective method of contouring the body to help provide you with the slimmer shape you have been unable to achieve otherwise.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

It is important to realize that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure and should not be used to treat severe obesity or as an alternative to diet and exercise. The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who are at a stable, healthy weight; but who still struggle with localized stubborn fat deposits.

Liposuction can help to reduce excess fat in many areas of the body. Dr. Paine can also perform a facial liposuction procedure to help enhance the contours of your face.

Liposuction Recovery

After the operation, a compression garment is placed over the treated area. Swelling, bruising and soreness are all to be expected after this procedure. You should avoid vigorous activity for three to four weeks after having liposuction.

Liposuction Results

Most patients are able to see results of their liposuction treatment in one to two weeks when swelling begins to subside. However, it could take a few months for all of the swelling to resolve. You will be able to enjoy your complete new look in about three to four months.
