Cicatrization in plastic surgery

Cicatrization in plastic surgery

Any type of surgical practice which involves cutting the skin surface, will generate a process of replacement due to the loss of tissue called scarring. The human tissue replaced is not 100% accurate, there is still a loss for that reason, which is 70% tissue of similar characteristics called scar tissue.

The final appearance of a scar depends on the patient's intrinsic factors such as skin characteristics, color, texture, elasticity, hydration etc., in addition to the individual genetic predisposition that is developed during the healing process. Extrinsic factors also affect the outcome of a scar such as the location of the incision, the presence of previous lesions in the area, infections, degree of tension of the sutures, wound direction and last but certainly not least because of its importance is the unforeseen reactions of the skin to suture materials used.

The factors described above can be controlled, but there are others that knot and the result of a scar frequently do not depend on the surgeon, not even on the same patient.

This is what makes your honesty during the consultation and before the surgery so important, and that you respond with sincerity to the questions that your doctor makes because the surgeon gathers enough information that will helps us give you the best results during the procedure.

BMI and liposuction

BMI and liposuction

One of the most common procedures is liposuction. This is a surgery that seeks to shape the body by extracting fatty tissues from specific areas, but is not indicated for weight loss, such as bariatric surgery.

The BMI or body mass index compares a person's weight and height to have an idea of ​​how healthy their body is. To calculate your BMI simply divide your weight in kilograms between the squared measurment of your height in meters. (Kg / m * m)

As stated, the normal range of BMI is between 18.50 and 29.99. A higher result is associated with the risk of suffering from certain cardiovascular diseases, such as diabetes and strokes.

That is why a liposuction is only done if a person has a BMI below 35. If someone is above this value, it is better to lose weight, get in shape and then it is determined whether or not it is safe to perform the surgery. This is done in order to obtain visible results and not affect the patient's health.

Consequences of having a heavy bust and how to solve it

Consequences of having a heavy bust and how to solve it

The human body can vary in many forms and proportions. Some women feel bad about having small breasts while others suffer from having a very heavy, bulky and disproportionate bust.

For the previously indicated, the day-to-day routines can be difficult to keep up with due to the multiple complications that result from having large and heavy breasts. Nonetheless, back and neck pain are a recurring theme for the body, lumbalgias, changes of posture that can deflect the spine, tension in muscles, ulcers, and marks due to the bra, are direct consequences of having breasts that are too heavy and bulky.

Physically, due to gravity, the tissues tend to fall and lose their firmness. So, the rounded shape usually associated with the breasts is lost. The most characteristic form for these women is like a pendulum or hanging bags with their nipples pointing down, which causes them psychological discomfort.

That is why a mastopexy which reduces the size of the breasts is convenient, not only to change the appearance, but to improve the health. This procedure aims to reduce the volume of the cup, raise them, and give tension to the skin in order to have breasts of a younger appearance with more attractive forms that do not damage or deform the body.

If you have any questions about this procedure, contact me at doctor@haroldvillalobos.
