Liposuction Details to Get Right

There is an old saying that goes “the magic is in the details.” This can be said of many things in life. In our arena, we see it daily. The best results from cosmetic treatment come from some of the details that could be easily overlooked. Not only do we pay close attention to technique in the performance of surgical and nonsurgical procedures but we also prioritize clear communication. What you expect from a procedure like liposuction is one of the most important details of your journey. We want you to have the most concise information as you make your decision regarding treatment. Here, we shed some light on what you can and can’t expect from liposuction.

  • Expect to look different after liposuction but not to weigh less. The purpose of liposuction is to sculpt certain parts of the body, such as the abdomen or the thighs. There is no intention for liposuction to assist with weight loss. This is why patients are encouraged to reach their goal weight before surgery.
  • Expect maintenance. A liposuction procedure extracts a number of fat cells. These cells are gone forever and your body will not grow new ones. However, what fat cells remain in the treatment area and beyond can expand in relation to diet and exercise habits. To sustain the results achieved with liposuction, it is necessary to manage overall weight.
  • Expect the best. Recently, the idea that nonsurgical body contouring treatments are better than liposuction has become popular. Nonsurgical options can be optimal in some cases. However, they are limited in what they can achieve and they take more time to produce noticeable results than a minimally-invasive, safe liposuction procedure. Dr. Krummen routinely performs liposuction on large and small areas. In many cases, only local anesthetic is needed to make the entire process comfortable. When conducted by a qualified, board-certified surgeon, liposuction offers a wealth of benefits.

Here’s How to Put a Smile on Dad’s Face

When we talk about beauty, we tend to think about the fairer of the bunch. For the past several years, statistics have continually shown us that to think of beauty only as it pertains to women is limiting. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is one of several organizations whose data demonstrates a steady increase in the number of men seeking cosmetic treatment. If the man in your life has been expressing concerns related to his appearance, your Cincinnati plastic surgeon may be the best resource of this year’s Father’s Day gift.

Dr. Krummen has established her practice around meeting the varying needs of her patients. With this as the end-goal, she has implemented both surgical and nonsurgical procedures into our comprehensive menu of services. A few that may be of interest to the man in  your life include:

  • Laser hair removal. For years, the rogue and wild hair growth that occurs in the average middle-aged man has been an easy resource for comedic humor. On a personal level, a man may feel self-conscious with his appearance when hair grows where it shouldn’t. If Dad could use some de-fuzzing, consider laser hair removal as a unique gift idea. A series of treatments can permanently decrease hair growth in any area of the body.
  • Wrinkle-reduction injections. Botox has become so popular among men that the treatment became known as Brotox for a time. Being that Botox injections take less than an hour and achieve results that last 3 to 6 months, this treatment is an excellent gift for the Dad with a permanent, non-intentional frown. For the deep creases that form around the nose and mouth, dermal fillers are recommended.
  • On the light side, Dad can get an easy, pampering boost from one of several skin-smoothing and brightening facial treatments. From microneedling to fractional laser resurfacing, our team performs techniques developed to remove the dead and damaged skin cells that make one’s complexion dull and rough.

Give Dad the beauty boost he deserves. Contact our Cincinnati office to learn more about our spa-like services.
