FACE LIFT

A facelift more technically known as Rhytidectomy is a type of a cosmetic surgery or facial toning procedure to enhance your look. There are multiple surgical techniques and exercise routines. Surgery usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues.

Each surgeon practices multiple different types of facelift surgery. At a consultation the procedure with the best outcome is chosen for every patient. Expectations of the patient, the age, possible recovery time and areas to improve are some of the many factors taken in consideration before choosing a technique of rhytidectomy.

HOW THE PROCEDURE WORKS:

For the procedure, you are either given general anesthesia or a sedative through an intravenous line and local anesthesia to numb your skin. Next, the surgeon makes an incision that starts in the temple area and circles around the front of the ear. The skin is raised, and the muscle and tissue underneath is tightened. The surgeon may remove some fat and skin. The skin is then redraped over the face and the incision is sutured. The incision usually falls along the hairline or in a place where the skin would naturally crease so that it does not show after the surgery.

Some people are able to have a limited-incision face-lift. This surgery uses shorter incisions at the temple and close to the ear. Sometimes an incision is made within the lower eyelid or under the upper lip.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

The patients face would be bandaged entirely which is taken off only after a day or two. It is expected that you will have some swelling and bruising on the face. Most people return to the normal lives 2-3 weeks post the procedure. You could also experience numbness in certain parts of the face for a month after the surgery as well.

RISK INVOLVED

  • Reactions to anaesthesia
  • Bleeding under the skin
  • Numbness
  • Hair loss
  • Tissue loss

As is the case with every cosmetic procedure, you may have certain risks, but with the correct guidelines of expert at Oasis risks become minimal.

ARM LIFT

A great procedure for those with lots of loose skin and excessive fat. It will leave you with a scar bout 5-10 cm, or longer. Recovery is 6 weeks. Return to work after 1 week. If you want to avoid a scar or have moderately loose skin, then Vaser Liposuction may be a better option.

WHAT IS AN ARM LIFT?

An Arm Lift, also known as a Brachioplasty, is used to treat a loss in skin elasticity and remove excess fat deposits between the underarm and elbow. Skin loses elasticity and becomes saggy due to ageing or dramatic weight loss. Excessive fat deposits are those that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

The Arm Lift procedure is performed under sedation and takes between 2-3 hours to complete. An incision is made usually in the armpit, and can extended as required by the treatment objectives and correction needed. Unwanted skin and fat is removed, and then the skin is re-draped to reveal the more natural contours of the arms as well as a more proportionate appearance.

WILL AN ARM LIFT LEAVE ANY NOTICEABLE SCARS?

As with any surgical procedure an incision is required. Scarring will depend on your body’s natural healing process and can take a good 6 months to fade in most cases. Topical silicone gels, like Strataderm, can be used to assist in the healing.

RISK INVOLVED

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Unintentional opening of the wound
  • Fluid build up
  • Infection
  • Healing time longer than anticipated

As is the case with every cosmetic procedure, you may have certain risks, but with the correct guidelines of expert at Oasis risks become minimal.

THIGH LIFT

A thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and in some cases fat, giving smoother skin, and better proportioned contours to the thighs and lower body.

REMOVES EXCESS SKIN

Without the help of a highly trained plastic surgeon, there is little that can be done to get rid of the excess skin that plagues the thighs of many of our Tampa patients. Even after one has lost weight, their thighs appear heavy and ill-proportioned because of the excess skin that is still present. Along with dramatic weight loss, loose and sagging skin around the thighs is often a result of getting older. As the skin becomes thinner, it loses its elasticity and ability to naturally “snap” back—instead, leaving it to hang loosely from the inner and outer thighs.

MUSCLE TIGHTENING

Like the skin, muscles become stretched over time. When stretched, the muscles lose their naturally strong definition. During thigh lift surgery, Dr. Castor is able to tighten loose muscles to help improve the overall contour of the thigh.

REDUCE STRETCH MARKS

Both men and women are equally prone to developing stretch marks along their thighs. By tightening and removing excess skin, stretch marks are minimized and can appear softer and more attractive. When necessary, laser skin resurfacing

RISK INVOLVED

  • Poor wound healing
  • Infection
  • Major wound separation
  • Fatty Tissue
  • Skin loss
