Breast Enhancement Houston

The breast is a symbol of femininity in a woman. Many women who wish to enhance, regain, or restore balance to their figures opt for breast augmentation, which is also known as breast enlargement, mammoplasty or breast implants. Breast lift is a common method used for improving the breasts’ outline and firmness. With new methods it is convenient for patients to choose the kind of breast enhancement they desire. Fat injections are the latest technique to enter the cosmetic world. Fat injections are used extensively by plastic surgeons to carry out different aesthetic procedures.

Breast Augmentation surgeries can now be combined with fat injection procedure to improve the normal look of the breasts, even without using implants.Skillful use of fat injections can give breasts a smooth and more natural feel as compared to silicone or saline breast implantsalone. Fat injections can also be used as an alternative to breast implants.

How does fat injection work?

Dr. Cortés, a board certified plastic surgeon, performs the surgery by taking fat from different part of the body, such as the thighs, buttocks, or tummy and then injecting it into the breasts to improve their look. Breast Enhancement Houston procedure is ideal for someone who is over 30 years of age or a person with decreased elasticity in the chest area or women who have undergone multiple pregnancies. If a woman wants a natural looking breast without the use of implants, then fat injection is an excellent option.

Full tummy tuck

Everyone opting for a tummy tuck wants a flat, washboard abdomen without a scar. This is not possible because along with the flat tummy comes a scar. Many surgeons try to reassure prospective patients that the scar will be very low and the person will be able to flaunt a low cut bikini. Patients routinely come to my office with the impression that they can get a mini tummy tuck and minimize their scar. When it comes to a tummy tuck, the surgeon will try to get you the best results, but the patient needs to understand that there will be a scar, and its length will depend on many factors.

The length of the scar is determined mainly by how much excess skin the patient has and how much fat is in and around the abdomen. If you have a lot of excess skin that goes from hip to hip, you can anticipate having a scar that goes from hip to hip or maybe a little bit longer to avoid dog ears. I always try to put the scar as low as possible, but again this is going to be determined by the technique of the full tummy tuck that we must follow in order to provide what you need. The patient needs to be emotionally and psychologically prepared to have a long scar.

Surgeons can give you a good result including a flatter, tighter abdomen and a very nice shape, but the overall result depends on a number of anatomical factors that you possess. Consult with your surgeon. Discuss with him your concerns regarding the location of the scar and the different types of tummy tuck. Together you can decide which technique will provide you with the best shape possible.

Tightness After Tummy Tuck

Best Curves

Some patients have the misconception that a tummy tuck will provide them with a very tight abdomen.   A tummy tuck procedure basically removes excess skin you may have either because of weight loss or pregnancy. It also removes excess fat. Finally, the abdominal muscles are repaired to provide a smaller waist and a flatter abdomen. I perform hundreds of tummy tucks a year. I have developed a technique called the hourglass tummy tuck, which gives best curves and shape to the body as compared to the traditional tummy tuck.

Through the years, I have learned a lot from my patients about their perception of what a tummy tuck provides in terms of how tight their abdomen will be. When surgery is performed, the excess skin is removed,but how tight the abdomen will be is determined mainly by the skin tone, or resilience. This varies significantly from patient to patient. Stretch marks are a sign that a patient’s skin is less able to regain its shape after being stretched than inpatients without stretch marks. Genetics also determines the level of tightness of the abdominal skin area. Patients need to understand that the tummy tuck procedure will certainly give them a tighter abdomen, but results will vary from one patient to another.

Best Curves

For example, if you have excess skin and very good skin tone, once the surgeon removes the excess skin and pulls the abdominal flap down, it will be extremely tight. On the other hand, if you have excess skin and poor skin tone, the skin will be tight, but not as much. This is particularly true of patients who have lost a lot of weight or have been pregnant with very large babies. In other words, the tummy tuck will tighten your abdomen relative to your skin tone before surgery.

The result (how tight your abdominal wall is likely to be) will be assessed by your surgeon and he will be able to give you a realistic picture. I have seen multiple patients coming to my clinic with concern that when they bend forward a little bit of skin gets bunched. This is absolutely normal because skin is elastic. Even after a tummy tuck, do not expect your skin not to bunch when you flex your abdomen. You need to be practical about what a tummy tuck will provide you.

Advantages of Fat Transfer Over Breast Implants

Advantages of Fat Transfer Over Breast Implants

Breast augmentation has a long and efficacious track record in satisfying many women around the world who want attractive, better-looking breasts. Breast implantation is one of the most popular procedures carried out to achieve the desired breasts; however, nowadays a more advanced method of breast augmentation is available, in which undesired fat from one part of the body is removed and the same fat is used to enhance the breasts.

butt Implants

At first, you may feel uncomfortable and will be advised not to sit until the sutures have healed. In the initial period after surgery, you will have to rest on your stomach or sides most of the time to let the buttocks heal. After a week or so you will be able to sit comfortably again, but it might seem to you as if you are sitting on a wallet, or padding. This is the feeling one gets in the upper region of the buttock, although this isn’t the load-bearing region as one sits down. The butt Implants is generally placed much higher in the gluten pocket, while most of the weight from sitting is distributed across the upper back of the thighs. For this reason, it is unlikely that you’ll ever actually “sit” on the implant itself. You will need to wear a support garment for approximately two to three weeks after your procedure. You will understandably be eager to enjoy your new look, but try to be patient. The final result is usually not seen until a few months after surgery.

Will there be scars?

Yes, but they probably won’t be noticeable. The surgeon will make every effort to keep incisions to a minimum and hide them in the natural lines and creases of your skin. The scars will fade over time and become barely noticeable.

Risks and complications of the surgery

The most common risks include bleeding, infection, and scarring. Although these are very rare, they can occur. These will be discussed with you during your consultation for the procedure.


Other complications can include capsular contractual, or loss of some sensation in the region. Capsular contractual is a condition that can occur when fibrosis of connective tissue forms around the capsule (the implant body), causing firmness and hardened implant edges that can restrict movement. Capsular contractual occurs very rarely, but in severe cases, where the capsule fiber can’t be broken externally, a corrective surgery for the removal and/or replacement of the implant might have to be carried out.
