The Liposuction Breast Reduction!

Liposuction Breast Reduction by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS Manhattan Aesthetic SurgeryThe Liposuction Breast Reduction, also known as the Scarless Breast Reduction, is gaining popularity among women who want an alternative to traditional breast reduction surgery.

The biggest drawback of traditional breast reduction surgery for most patients is the scarring. There are 3 possible scar patterns after breast reduction: 1) Circumareolar (around the areola); 2) Vertical (around the areola + from the areola down to the fold underneath the breast); 3) Wise-pattern (anchor pattern). In almost all cases, these scars heal very well and do not distract from the overall results. Breast reduction surgery, scarless or not, has one of the highest satisfaction rates of any cosmetic breast procedure, so you can’t necessarily go wrong with either choice as long as you understand the goals and limitations of each procedure.

Is SmartLipo better than Traditional Liposuction?

liposuction new york, liposuction NYC, plastic surgery, plastic surgeon nyc, dr plastic surgeonThere’s a reason that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world: it works. Not just in the physical sense, either—most people who undergo liposuction emerge from the experience more satisfied with and confident about their body.

With all of the liposuction techniques out there, how do you pick the best one?

A lot of doctors out there right now are pushing hard for SmartLipo (also known as “laser lipolysis”) as the most appealing option, claiming that traditional liposuction just doesn’t cut it anymore in light of the new technologies that are available. But are they right?

Can Liposuction Lower Your Cholesterol?

Liposuction by NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MASAccording to research presented at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, liposuction may have more than a cosmetic benefit!

The researchers discovered that triglyceride levels were as much as 43% lower in a small group of patients who had were diagnosed with high triglycerides before having liposuction. The study was very small, and has quite a few limitations, but it’s still an interesting result!

Of course, this isn’t a reason for everyone with high cholesterol to rush out and get liposuction. There are risks associated with the procedure, and those risks increase exponentially with conditions like obesity and heart disease, which are both associated with high cholesterol.

In addition, it’s still unclear whether the reduction in triglyceride levels was a permanent change, or whether it actually led to any real health benefits. It’s also important to note that there were no changes in any other type of cholesterol (HDL, LDL, or Total Cholesterol), and that the gold standard for reducing triglycerides is still simple common sense dietary adjustments!

Tickle Lipo! Is it a laughing matter? Or a laughing stock?

Tickle Lipo, also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture, has been generating some press lately for it’s role in making the experience of liposuction more comfortable… or laughable in some cases!

The principle behind Tickle Liposuction is not a new one. Many dentists and plastic surgeons have used vibration to lessen the sensation of pain during numbing injections for years, and this is the exact principle that Tickle Lipo employs. The liposuction cannulas themselves vibrate and rotate at a very high speed to “trick” your nerves into feeling a sensation other than pain, and some patients have described it as “ticklish”… hence the name!

The theory behind Tickle Lipo makes sense, but does it translate into practical results? Or is it just another gimmick procedure?

Zeltiq: Fab or Drab?

zeltiq, mas, manhattan aesthetic surgery, dr nicholas vendemiaIn my opinion, Zeltiq is definitely FAB!

What if there was a way to target localized unwanted fat bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise with a quick, easy, safe, and effective non-invasive office treatment?

Thanks to the great minds of physicians at Mass General Hospital (Harvard Medical School’s Hospital), a revolutionizing new technology named Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is available to decrease targeted fat deposits in the belly, love handles, and back area (with a handpiece on the way for treatment of the buttocks).
