The Wonder of Liposuction
Andrew Lyos, M.D., F.A.C.S.
You’ve heard about liposuction: excellent cosmetic results, significantly fewer risks, and rapid recovery, with imperceptible scars. But what exactly is it, and how does it work?
Liposuction is a form of body sculpting performed through a minimally invasive, well concealed small incision. With this technique, a hollow tube (cannula) is used to extract unwanted fat pockets from specific body areas that have been unresponsive to proper diet and exercise. These areas include the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, arms, calves, knees and ankles. Most surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis. Operative time is generally two to three hours.
Most patients see immediate improvement in body contour and achieve 95 percent of the final result within three to four weeks. After the procedure, they notice that clothes fit more comfortably and they feel more confident about their appearance. And the new body shape can be a long-term result, provided a healthy lifestyle is maintained.

The Ultimate Lift
Gary Horndeski, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Women request breast lifts to correct two problems. First, the breast mound has fallen and second, the breast appears deflated with downward pointing nipples. The ideal goal is to lift the breast mound so that it begins at the level of a horizontal line determined by the junction of the arm to the chest. The second goal is to increase breast projection and reposition the nipple to the most anterior position.
A new technique of internal suspension similar to a push up bra corrects both of these problems. Upon completion, The Ultimate Lift has incisions hidden at the nipple-skin junction and near the junction of the breast and chest inferiorly. There are no unsightly vertical scars, T-shaped scars, lollipop scars or boat anchor shaped scars. Women express great satisfaction after The Ultimate Lift since the breast position of the chest wall is similar to wearing a push up bra. Women are able to wear strapless, spaghetti strap or low-cut clothes without visible scars. This procedure can also be modified for breast reductions. Call 281-565-8099 today for a free consultation.
