Questions to Ask Your Neck Lift Surgeon | Orlando Plastic SurgeryA sculpted and firm looking neck and lower face can make an individual appear slimmer and more youthful. At the time of pre-op consultation for neck lift cosmetic surgery, the patient should be prepared to ask questions and clear all their doubts and concerns about the procedure as well as the surgeon’s professional background.

A dedicated surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and will provide clear and detailed answers in a patient-friendly language.

The first goal of the surgeon will be to help ensure that the patient makes a well-considered decision about neck lift. Board certified and judicious plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides neck lift and various other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

 

Are you board certified in plastic surgery by the ABPS?

For an aesthetic procedure such as neck lift, the patient should ideally select a surgeon who has a board certification in plastic surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the most authoritative board, which follows a rigorous selection process to certify a limited number of surgeons. ABPS board certified surgeons typically invest in high quality standards and best practices to deliver exceptional results to their patients.

 

Have you performed neck lift and facelift before?

Procedures such as neck lift should be performed by a surgeon who has sufficient experience in doing such procedures. The procedure must be customized to match with the patient’s facial anatomy and overall figure in order to create harmonious and natural looking outcomes. If the surgeon understands the nuances of neck lift, they will be able to achieve best results in a less invasive way.

 

Where would you perform my neck lift surgery?

The surgeon may recommend a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite to perform neck lift cosmetic surgery.

Each option comes with its own costs and benefits, and the surgeon will help the patient make the right choice. An astute surgeon would have staff privileges at one of the local hospitals or surgery centers. They should work with experienced or board certified anesthesiologists if neck lift is going to involve general anesthesia.

 

How much will the neck lift procedure cost?

The sticker price is an important aspect for most patients because neck lift is an elective surgery, not covered by insurance. The patient should feel free to ask questions about the costs involved, including pre- and post-surgical expenses, the methods of payment acceptable, and options for third party financing. If neck lift is combined with facelift, the surgeon may be able to offer a rebate.

 

What are the risks and complications involved?

Like any other surgical procedure, neck lift will have certain potential risks and complications associated with it. The patient should have clear information about these in order to make an informed choice. A committed surgeon will present a realistic picture of the procedure and help the patient make an objective decision.

Proven and sterling plastic surgeon Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other cities and towns in this neck of the woods for neck lift and various other procedures.

Preparing for Neck Lift Surgery | Orlando Plastic Surgery | Med SpaA neck lift has come up as popular cosmetic surgery procedure over the years. In many cases, it is performed in conjunction with a facelift to create more harmonious outcomes.

A neck lift is a relatively less invasive procedure, but it must be preceded by careful preparation to ensure safe outcomes. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss the steps involved in preparation.

A patient who has thoroughly prepared for the aesthetic surgery will typically attain better satisfaction levels in the end. Ideal preparation constitutes the foundation for a successful neck lift surgery, and the patient should be committed to following the surgeon’s instructions for it.

The hard working and adroit Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing neck lift and various other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.

 

Preparation Steps

The patient should take the following steps to prepare for neck lift surgery:

  • Arrange for previous health records from the physician, specialist or hospital to send to the office of the cosmetic surgeon.
  • List down all the prescription and non-prescription drugs, including herbal supplements and vitamins that the patient may be currently taking.
  • Complete any x-ray or lab tests that the surgeon may order prior to the neck lift procedure.
  • Adjust the schedule of prescription medications, if necessary, in consultation with the surgeon and the prescribing physician.
  • Refrain from smoking for a specified time period before the surgery.
  • Complete any urgent tasks at office or home well before the surgery in order to ensure a stress-free recovery period.
  • Arrange for someone responsible to drive the patient back home after the outpatient neck lift cosmetic surgery.
  • Apply for leave in advance for at least one week at the workplace.

The patient should be committed to following the surgeon’s pre- and post-surgical guidelines in preparation of neck lift surgery.

 

A Day before the Surgery

The patient should follow these simple tips a day prior to the neck lift procedure:

  • Rest well and have a good night’s sleep before the surgery.
  • Avoid eating or drinking anything for eight hours prior to the surgery.
  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages for at least 48 hours prior to the surgery.
  • Avoid wearing any makeup, nail paint, body piercings, jewelry or contact lenses on the day of the surgery.
  • If the patient has diabetes, they should get their vital parameters checked on the morning of the surgery.

 

Other Aspects

Most patients will naturally have some level of pre-surgery anxiety. Therefore, a surgeon may prescribe a mild calming medication to be taken the night before the neck lift procedure. Patient can plan ahead and make advance arrangements at home to have a more comfortable post-operative recovery phase.

It is a prudent idea to stock up on a few pain meds, extra pillows, loose fitting clothes, ice packs and other necessary items at home in advance. Outstanding and profound plastic surgeon Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and nearby areas for neck lift and various other cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.

Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women and Men | Orlando Medical SpaAt one time, cosmetic surgery procedures were perceived to be beyond the reach of the general population, and were considered to be the exclusive domain of movie stars and models.

But with rapidly advancing surgical technology and techniques, these procedures came within the reach of the average person. Millions of aesthetic surgical and non-surgical procedures are now performed every year in the US.

The acceptance and popularity of cosmetic procedures has consistently risen over the years. While a majority of the procedures are still sought only by women, now men are increasingly seeking these procedures to improve their physical looks and self-esteem. Board certified and stellar plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides procedures for the breast, body and face to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other towns and cities in this part of North Florida.

 

Wide Acceptance  

Both surgeons and patients now whole-heartedly accept and endorse plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures as a safe and proven solution to enhancing physical appearance and self-image.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has announced in its recent multi-specialty statistical report that Americans spent over $15 billion on invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures in 2016. This translates to a year on year growth of 11 percent over the previous year.

Plastic surgery constituted nearly 56 percent of these procedures, while 44 percent were non-surgical procedures. The figure of $15 billion represents the largest amount spent on these treatments in a single year ever since ASAPS launched its annual Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics survey about 20 years ago.

ASAPS says that people’s aspirations are undergoing a rapid change, and more women and men now seek subtle and refined cosmetic treatments. For example, women increasingly want to choose fat transfer breast enhancement procedure in place of traditional breast implants to make the results look less obvious. Similarly, the popularity of breast lift is on the rise because the procedure is more understated than breast implants.

But this trend is not a reflection on the popularity of breast augmentation surgery.

In absolute terms, more women still prefer breast implant surgery, and it continues to rank as the number two cosmetic surgery procedure in the US at present. Surgeries once considered niche, such as labiaplasty, are now becoming mainstream. Men’s procedures, ranging from chin reduction to Botox, are also gaining popularity.

 

Five Most In-Demand Procedures

The five most in-demand procedures in 2016, according to the ASAPS data, for both women and men combined, include:

  • Liposuction – 414,335 procedures
  • Breast Augmentation – 310,444 procedures
  • Tummy Tuck – 181,540 procedures
  • Eyelid Surgery – 173,883 procedures
  • Breast Lift – 161,412 procedures

 

Liposuction

Liposuction surgery is the number one body contouring surgery to reduce specific fat pockets in the upper and lower body.

 

Breast Augmentation

Both traditional breast implant surgery and fat transfer breast augmentation are growing in demand.

 

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck has consistently remained popular among both women and men to create a more youthful abdomen.

 

Eyelid Surgery

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can dramatically improve the appearance of the eyes and upper face.

 

Breast Lift

Breast lift is designed to tighten sagging breasts and subtly lift the position of downward pointing nipples.

Experienced, proven, and percipient plastic surgeon Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for various aesthetic procedures.

Oculoplastic Eye Surgery Cost | Orlando Plastic Surgery | Med SpaOculoplastic surgery is one of the delicate cosmetic surgery procedures because it involves the eyelids. The procedure should only be performed by a surgeon who is trained and experienced in oculoplastic surgery. During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs.

The first goal of a responsible surgeon will be to educate the patient about the procedure and help them make a well-considered decision. Patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities across the horizon have an opportunity to receive oculoplastic surgery from the successful and astute plastic surgeon Dr. Susie Rhee of Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery.

 

Fiscal Factors

The monetary amount of oculplastic surgery can vary from one practice to another, and in some cases, may also vary from one patient to another. Some of the key factors that will influence the costs include:

 

Geographical Factor

Where the practice is located will make a difference to the overall costs. Main metropolitan areas and prime urban centers typically have higher real estate costs and higher overheads, which reflects in the relatively higher costs of most types of products and services in these areas, including cosmetic surgery services. A practice located in a smaller town in an interior region, on the other hand, would usually be able to offer little lower prices.

 

Surgeon’s Fee

It is important to choose the right cosmetic surgeon for any procedure, and more so, when the procedure is related to the eyes. Oculoplastic surgery should ideally be performed by a surgeon with expertise in this field.

Surgeons with advanced skills and experience may have a higher fee, but patients should consider all aspects while make a decision. According to the ASPS, a surgeon’s fee should be a secondary consideration while selecting the best possible plastic surgeon.

 

Anesthesia and Surgical Facility Costs

If the oculoplastic surgery procedure is performed using general anesthesia, it will involve the fee of an anesthesiologist or a certified anesthetist nurse. Their fee can vary according to their skills and experience.

The procedure may be performed at a hospital, an accredited surgical center or a private surgical suite. The potential costs and benefits under each option will vary, and the patient can make the appropriate decisions in consultation with the surgeon.

 

Extent of Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery may sometimes only involve cosmetic eye lift for the lower eyelids or upper eyelid or both. If both are involved, the costs may be a little higher because the surgery will be more complex and time consuming. In some cases, additional procedures related to orbit or tear ducts may be involved.

If ptosis is present, the surgeon will also repair that condition along with performing cosmetic improvements. Sometimes patients prefer to combine oculoplastic surgery along with other upper face procedures such as brow lift or forehead lift surgery. All these aspects will have an impact on the overall sticker price of the procedure.

Full or partial insurance coverage may be possible in a few cases where oculoplastic surgery involves correction of vision obstruction or ptosis repair. Prolific and percipient plastic surgeon Dr. Rhee along with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for oculoplastic surgery.

What is Oculoplastic Surgery? | Orlando Plastic Surgery | Medical SpaOculoplastic surgery is a specialized procedure that combines the benefits of eyelid lift and cosmetic surgery. In addition to eyelid surgery, oculoplastic surgery may represent eye related procedures that involve the orbit, tear ducts and the upper face. In some cases, oculoplastic surgery may be both medically necessary as well as cosmetically desirable.

Some types of periocular and eyelid problems can affect an individual’s facial appearance as well as their overall eye health, vision, and eye comfort.

These issues can be successfully treated with oculoplastic surgery. Profound and cutting edge plastic surgeon Dr. Susie Rhee is an expert in this procedure. She provides oculoplastic surgery to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

 

Common Oculoplastic Procedures

Patients can significant improve their quality of life with one of the following four commonly performed aesthetic and oculoplastic procedures:

  • Entropian repair: This involves correction of the eyelids that are folding inward
  • Ectropian repair: This involves correction of the eyelids that are turning outward
  • Ptosis repair: This procedure will correct drooping upper or lower eyelids
  • External DCR: This procedure is designed to restore the natural flow of tears

In most cases, an oculoplastic surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and the recovery is fairly quick. Blepharoplasty, which involves repair of upper or lower droopy eyelids through removal of excess skin, fat and muscle, is one of the top five cosmetic surgery procedures in the US today.

 

Types of Oculoplastic Surgery

Some of the key procedures that are considered as a part of oculoplastic surgery include:

  • Eyelid Surgery: This includes blepharoplasty and reconstructive eyelid surgery to correct entropion, ectropian, ptosis and eyelid tumors.
  • Tear Duct Surgery: This will correct the flow of tears
  • Orbital Surgery: This procedure is aimed at managing thyroid and eye disorders, trauma and tumors
  • Pediatric Oculoplastic Surgery: Congenital defects and eye disorders in children can be corrected with this procedure.
  • Brow lift and forehead lift: These upper face cosmetic procedures may be performed along with oculoplastic surgery to create more harmonious results.

 

Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery is the most commonly type of oculoplastic procedure. An experienced surgeon will create small incisions following the natural lines of the eyelids in order to hide subsequent scarring. The surgeon will place the incision and then separate the skin from the underlying tissue. Excess skin, fat and muscle will be removed through the incision.

The incisions will then be closed with fine sutures in the upper eyelids. Most patients will not require sutures in the lower eyelids, but this will depend on the surgical technique used to perform the procedure. The surgery may be performed on either lower or upper eyelids or both. It may take about two hours to perform the procedure if both lower and upper lids are involved.

Post-operative care will depend on the type of oculoplastic surgery received. Outstanding and salient plastic surgeon Dr. Rhee of Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas in this part of Northern Florida for oculoplastic surgery.

Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery Cost | Orlando | Altamonte SpringsRhinoplasty is one of the sought after cosmetic surgery procedures because of its potential to enhance facial balance and created a more attractive looking face. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about various aspects of rhinoplasty, including its estimated costs.

The patient should make a well-considered decision after the considering the costs and potential benefits as well as the quality standards offered at a particular practice. Standout and sagacious board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala along with Dr. Susan Rhee provides rhinoplasty to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.

 

Factors Affecting the Costs

The costs of rhinoplasty can sometimes differ between two practices and even between two patients at the same practices due to a variety of factors.

 

Location of the Practice

The cost of living index usually varies between two regions, which will have an impact on the costs of all types of goods and services, including aesthetic procedures. Practices located in major urban centers or coastal areas typically have higher real estate costs and other overheads compared to a practice in a small town in an interior location. This will usually make a difference to the costs offered at a practice for rhinoplasty.

 

Surgeon’s Fee

The fee charged by the surgeon is an important cost component in nose cosmetic surgery. The fee of surgeon may vary according to their skills and experience. Patients should ideally choose a surgeon who invests in high quality standards and best practices, uses cutting edge nose surgery techniques, focuses on less invasive innovations, and follows the latest safety protocols.

 

Operating Room Costs

The surgeon will usually have the option to perform nose surgery at a hospital, an accredited surgery center or a private surgical suite. The costs and benefits associated with each option are different. Accredited surgical centers are more popular nowadays, but the patient should ensure that the facility has the latest surgical equipment and technology and is backed by a team of experienced support staff.

 

Anesthesia Cost

If the surgeon uses an open rhinoplasty technique, they may use general anesthesia. This will require the services of an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist. They will charge a fee according to their qualifications and may charge on a per hour basis. They will normally be present throughout the surgery to monitor the patient’s response.

 

Extent of Surgery

If the patient requires a more complicated rhinoplasty, involving procedures such as bone or cartilage grafts, placement of implants or a major nose reconstruction, the overall cost of surgery may be higher. Similarly, revision rhinoplasty and ethnic rhinoplasty may require more intricate surgery work. The costs may be higher in such cases compared to a patient who only needs a minor cosmetic improvement in the nose tip or wants a bump on the nose bridge to be removed.

Patients should also account for other minor expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs, and post-op appointments. Accomplished and resolute plastic surgeons Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee receive patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other cities and towns in this part of The Sunshine State for rhinoplasty.

What is Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery? | Orlando Plastic Surgery | Med SpaRhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is an intricate cosmetic surgery procedure designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose.

Facial balance and symmetry can be dramatically improved with the right appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty may also be used sometimes to correct functional anomalies and clear breathing obstructions in the nostrils.

Augmentation rhinoplasty, reduction rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty, and revision and reconstructive rhinoplasty are some of the major types of nose surgery procedures. Fabulous and state of art board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala along with Dr. Susie Rhee of provides rhinoplasty and other aesthetic procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other suburbs and cities in this area of the country.

 

Cosmetic Improvements

Some of the key aesthetic improvements to the nose that can be achieved with rhinoplasty include:

  • Reducing or enhancing the size of the nose to make it more proportionate to the rest of the face
  • Widening or narrowing the nose width at the nasal bridge
  • Removing or diminishing visible humps or depressions on the nose bridge to improve nose profile
  • Refining a droopy, oversized, upturned, or bulbous nose tip
  • Sculpting the shape of wide, flared or upturned nostrils
  • Correcting a deviated or asymmetrical nose

 

Candidacy

Any individual who has attained full growth of the nose, but is bothered by its aesthetic aspects such as the shape, size or symmetry, or suffers from a structural defect within the nose may be a suitable candidate for rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery. The ideal candidate will be in good general health and will be above 13 years of age.

The candidate should preferably be a non-smoker or should be committed to following the surgeon’s instructions regarding temporarily giving up smoking. An individual who is unhappy with the aesthetic or functional outcome of a previous nose job may be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty.  

 

Procedure

The surgeon will determine whether rhinoplasty may be performed with the patient under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. If major modifications to the nose are involved, the surgeon will likely choose open rhinoplasty technique. For more subtle changes, closed rhinoplasty may be performed.

For open rhinoplasty, the surgeon will create an incision across the columella, which is the narrow strip dividing the nostrils. Through the incision, the surgeon will lift the soft tissue in order to access and reshape the underlying nasal structures.

On the other hand, in case of closed rhinoplasty, several tiny incisions will be placed inside the nose to make the improvements. This will create no external scars. Closed rhinoplasty is less invasive and the patient will have a faster recovery.

Cartilage grafting is sometimes a part of rhinoplasty procedure to augment the nasal structure. If the septum is deviated, it will be straightened surgically and the surgeon may reduce the internal projections to improve breathing ability. Once the surgeon has reshaped the nose as required, the overlying skin and tissue will be re-draped delicately and the incisions will be closed.

Outstanding and reliable plastic surgeons Dr. Fiala and Dr. Rhee receive patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other cities and neighborhoods in this geographical region for rhinoplasty.
