What is a Mommy Makeover Surgery?
What is a Mommy Makeover Surgery?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s physical figure in many cases. A mother has an opportunity to re-gain her pre-pregnancy figure with cosmetic surgery procedures. If she chooses individual aesthetic procedures, the improvement in the overall appearance may only be quite limited. On the other hand, a mommy makeover surgery can be a good choice for a comprehensive improvement.

A mommy makeover procedure will involve surgical treatment in certain pre-determined areas of the body that require enhancement. The surgery will address multiple issues such as loose skin, excess fat accumulation, and cellulite appearance in one go. Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing state of the art procedures such as mommy makeover. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Any mother who feels the need to reverse or improve the adverse aesthetic impact caused by pregnancy and childbirth may make a good candidate for this procedure. Women who give a natural birth and those who undergo a C-section surgery will make equally good candidates for a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery.

However, the candidate should not have a plan for another pregnancy in the foreseeable future. The surgeon will also consider the overall health of the candidate, previous surgeries if any, and her personal aesthetic goals prior to determining whether mommy makeover is the most appropriate procedure in her case.

Procedure

The cosmetic surgeon will usually customize the mommy makeover procedure to meet the unique aesthetic needs of a patient. The procedure will usually include two or more of the following surgeries:

Breast Augmentation
• Breast Lift
• Breast Reduction
• Liposuction
• Tummy Tuck
• Body Lift
• Body Contouring
• Cellulite Reduction
• Stretch Mark Removal
• Non-invasive procedures

Breast augmentation or implant surgery is commonly included in a mommy makeover because the mother may experience loss of breast volume following pregnancy or breastfeeding. If the breasts droop significantly, breast lift surgery may be added to the mommy makeover plan. Some women may develop oversized breasts, which may necessitate a breast reduction procedure instead of implants.

Liposuction surgery is one of the common procedures in a mommy makeover. Liposuction can be used to improve body contours in a targeted manner with a less invasive approach. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Fiala provides mommy makeover and other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas.

Stretch mark and cellulite removal procedures are also commonly performed in a mommy makeover. Non-surgical procedures may sometimes be combined with surgery in order to make the overall procedure relatively less invasive. A detailed treatment plan will be prepared in consultation with the patient, which will accomplish the desired goals in a safe and effective manner.

Recovery

On average, a patient will take about two to three weeks before they can resume their normal activities. Heavy lifting of weights and strenuous movements should be avoided for about six weeks. The patient should follow the surgeon’s instructions diligently in order to minimize risk during the recovery.

How much does Botox Cost?
How much does Botox Cost?

Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging non-surgical aesthetic treatments for the face. This injectable treatment may be recommended for individuals who wish to avoid cosmetic surgery, but still want to find a solution to minimize facial lines and wrinkles. During the initial consultation, the Botox treatment provider will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated costs.

Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing a wide range of surgical as well as non-surgical procedures, including Botox. Dr. Fiala will address all queries and concerns of the patient during the initial consultation, and help the patient make an informed choice. He receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

Average Cost

At Dr. Fiala’s practice, various facial procedures ranging from facelift cosmetic surgery to Botox non-surgical treatment are offered at competitive prices. Botox treatment, on average, may range from $350 to $500 for each treated area at the practice. Special offers may be available to make the treatment more affordable for patients who are on a budget.

In terms of cost per unit of Botox, the cost at Dr. Fiala’s practice may vary between $15 and $20 per unit. The number of injections that a patient may require will also influence the final cost of Botox treatment. One of the key advantages of receiving Botox injections at Dr. Fiala’s practice is that the treatments are performed under the guidance of experienced and board certified plastic surgeons, including Dr. Fiala himself.

A majority of practices offer Botox treatment at a flat rate cost, and only a few will break down the sticker price by units used per treatment. Flat rates for Botox may range from $300 to $1,000, depending on several factors. The rate per unit is usually around $15 to $20, and a single vial contains 100 units, which will suffice for four to five treatments. The limitation is that the vial must be used within a few hours of opening, and if the entire vial is not consumed, the rest of it may have to be discarded.

Cost Factors

When an individual is considering Botox treatment and making a comparison of prices, they should look at the price in relation to the quality of care and the professional credentials and reputation of the practice providing Botox treatment.

If the price discount offered at some place is abnormally high, it could be indicative of questionable treatment. Therefore, the patient should carefully evaluate the price against quality. Dr. Fiala provides Botox treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas.

Insurance and Financing

Botox treatment for cosmetic purposes will generally not be covered by health insurance. However, the patient should consult with their insurance provider in advance to determine the coverage possibility. Allergan, Inc., the manufacturer of Botox, also offers guidance with regard to insurance over phone.

Most patients are eligible to get the Botox treatment financed from professional medical care financing firms. In some cases, the surgeon’s office may provide in-house assistance with financing. Major credit cards are also usually accepted at leading Botox practices and clinics.

What is Botox Used for?
What is Botox Used for?

Botox offers a safe, standout, and proven non-surgical solution for facial aging. Ever since the Botox injection procedure was approved by the FDA for cosmetic reduction of fine lines on the forehead and between the eyes, it has continued to remain the most sought after anti-aging procedure around the world. Botox treatment is usually recommended for individuals who are reluctant to choose facial cosmetic surgery options such as a facelift or brow lift.

In 2013, Botox treatment was also approved for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. For many years, Botox has also been used for non-label aesthetic purposes such as reduction of lines at the base of the nose and other facial wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Thomas Fiala is a board certified plastic surgeon providing Botox and various other surgical and non-surgical procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

Aesthetic Benefits

Botox injectable treatment is designed to temporarily eliminate or diminish facial wrinkles and lines by relaxing the underlying overactive muscles that form wrinkles. Apart from cosmetic benefits such as smoothing of frown lines and removal of crow’s feet, the FDA has also approved Botox for medical purposes such as reduction of eye muscle disorders.

Botox as a cosmetic treatment is not only used as a standalone treatment, but often also in conjunction with cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift to optimize their impact. Results with Botox will show almost immediately, and the face can look younger and rejuvenated with this treatment.

A stellar and golden plastic surgeon, Dr. Fiala may recommend Botox to his patients for improving the appearance of various facial areas through reduction of the effects of aging. He receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations.

Eyes

The area around the eyes is typically affected by dynamic wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movement and facial expression. Such wrinkles respond well to Botox injectable treatment. The medication will impact only the muscle nerves, and not the nerves of sensation. Therefore, a patient will not experience a loss of sensation in the injected area.

Brows

Brows can get permanently wrinkled due to frowning, laughing or smiling. Botox treatment can dramatically improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, resulting in a positive enhancement of the face. Botox injections can also be beneficial for men who need to reduce deep furrows between the brows.

Forehead

Lines on the forehead can make the face appear old or haggard. Permanent creases on the forehead can occur due to aging. Botox can effectively relax the underlying facial muscles and cause the skin to become smoother and showing fewer wrinkles on the forehead. Forehead lines are horizontal, which makes the Botox treatment more effective in this area.

Jaw Contouring

Jaw contouring is one of the recently discovered uses of Botox. If the muscles of the jaw used for chewing are oversized, the patient may have a square shaped face. This condition can be treated with Botox to provide a more natural oval shaped face.

Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Plastic Surgery) Recovery

Vaginoplasty cosmetic surgery procedure is usually performed with the patient under IV sedation and local anesthesia. While it is primarily a procedure designed to enhance a woman’s sexual aesthetics, in some cases it may also be required to address pain, discomfort, and obstruction in performing certain activities.

During the initial consultation phase, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of the procedure, including its estimated recovery.

Immediate Post-Op Phase

Following vaginoplasty cosmetic surgery, the patient will be moved to a recovery area. Trained staff will monitor the patient’s vital signs and address any concerns or discomfort. In about one to two hours, most patients will be ready to leave for their home or nearby hotel. The patient should have someone to driver her back, and preferably stay overnight for general assistance.

At the time of leaving, the patient will be provided with written and verbal instructions for the recovery period, including recommendations for everyday activities and routine work. The patient will be encouraged to keep in touch with the surgeon during the healing process, especially in case of any abnormal signs or acute discomfort.

The plastic surgeon will usually perform the vaginoplasty procedure on an outpatient basis. The treated areas will be covered with bandage and dressings immediately after the surgery.

First Few Weeks

Mild pain and discomfort in the incision areas will be experienced by most patients in the first week. This can be address with pain medications prescribed by the surgeon. If only minor vaginoplasty has been performed, the patient may be able to return to her normal routine or go back to work in about three to four days. However, if a comprehensive procedure involving aesthetics enhancement as well as correction of anomalies is performed, the recovery period may be about one week to 10 days.

The surgeon may instruct the patient against the use of tampons, thongs, or g-string underwear for about a month. She will also be required to refrain from having sexual intercourse for about six weeks. Complete healing may take as long as three to four months. While regular activities can usually be resumed from the second week, but aggressive exercises and movements should be avoided for at least a month.

Risks

Vaginoplasty will entail risks similar to any other plastic surgery procedure. As long as the procedure is performed by a qualified and trained surgeon, the risk of complications is very rare. In any case, potential complications include infection, bleeding, alteration of sensation, and persistent pain in the treated area.

If the procedure involves labiaplasty through wedge technique, a minor scar can be expected. A part of the scar will be on the inside, while the remaining part will be on the outside, in the crease between the labia majora and minora. The scar is small and away from the vaginal opening.

 Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Plastic Surgery) Overview

Vaginoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of the vagina through a combination of surgical correction, fat reduction, and rejuvenation techniques. The appearance of the vagina may cause concern to some women in terms of sexual aesthetics or when it causes obstruction or discomfort in performing sexual or certain other activities.

Vagina may undergo changes due to developmental reasons, aging, or birth related trauma. If the labia are enlarged or torn, it may cause pain during sex, chafing, and generally make a woman feel self-conscious or unhappy.

What is a Vaginoplasty?

A vaginoplasty cosmetic surgery may include reduction in the size of labia minora and labia majora, or correction in the shape of the labia. A skilled surgeon may also combine innovative non-surgical techniques such as dermal fillers in some cases to rejuvenate the overall appearance of the vagina. It is important to ensure in vaginoplasty that enhancement in sexual aesthetics should not come at the cost of reduction in natural sensation in the area.

Therefore, such procedures should only be performed by highly trained surgeons who understand the vaginal anatomy. In some cases, apart from aesthetic improvements, vaginoplasty may also address functional issues such as repairing of torn vaginal tissue following childbirth.

Procedure

In many cases, the vaginoplasty procedure will be performed with the patient under local anesthesia and IV sedation. The surgeon will excise the targeted amount of excess tissue from the inner and outer vaginal lips as per the surgical plan decided in advance. Once the loose skin and tissue is carefully removed, the labia will be re-draped to create a desirable contour. The surgeon will use fine sutures to repair the tissue delicately.

The technique involved in labial reshaping will usually be the wedge method or the trim method. The wedge method adopts a more conservative surgical approach. Only the central element of the labia minor is removed in this technique, while the lower and upper portions of the tissue remain untouched. This is a safer and less invasive surgical approach to vaginoplasty.

In a few cases, the surgeon may choose to follow the trim method. This involves removal of a greater portion of the tissue to achieve substantive aesthetic improvement. This technique may be employed to address the appearance of excessively large labia or in cases where the patient wants correction of the discolored appearance of the labial edge.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

Clitoral hood reduction may be performed as a part of vaginoplasty. It involves reduction in the amount of tissue covering the upper portion of the vulva. A small upside down “V” of tissue is excised from the vaginal area in order to expose the clitoris a little more. The procedure may help to improve a woman’s ability to achieve sexual satisfaction.

Botox

Botox Injections by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr Fiala Orlando Florida

Botox Before & After Photos

Botox is a proven and highly effective anti-aging non-surgical aesthetics treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Tens of millions of patients around the world benefit from this treatment every year to achieve a more youthful looking face without have to undergo cosmetic surgery.

The FDA gave approval to Botox in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of facial wrinkles. Ever since then, it has remained one of the top recommendations of leading cosmetic surgeons and aesthetic experts in the US and elsewhere. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides Botox treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

Potent Muscle Immobilizer

Botulinum toxin, the key ingredient of Botox, is a powerful muscle immobilizing agent. It can relax the overactive muscle on the face that is causing a wrinkle. When applied in a controlled manner, this neurotoxin has unique properties to achieve highly desirable and near-instant aesthetic results in terms of reduction of facial wrinkles and lines.

However, even a slight error in the delivery of treatment may lead to severe side effects. Therefore, Botox injections must be administered only by a qualified and experienced provider to achieve desirable results. It is ideal for patients who are keen to avoid facial cosmetic surgery and yet wish to achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance.

FDA Warning

While the FDA has approved Botox for cosmetic anti-aging purposes, but it has also provided a warning on Botox label that says that the effects of botulinum toxin can potentially spread to other parts of the face that are away from the injection area, leading to symptoms of botulism.

At the same time, the FDA provides an assuring fact that no occurrence of a confirmed serious case of this type has been known when Botox injections are administered in recommended doses by a qualified provider. Effectively, the FDA warning underscores the importance of receiving Botox treatment from a trained and experienced provider. Dr. Fiala is a leading plastic surgeon providing Botox treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations.

Importance of a Credentialed Provider

Michael C. Edwards, the President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), stresses upon the critical importance of reviewing the credentials of a Botox treatment provider. Dr. Edwards says that if Botox injections are received from an unqualified provider, risks such as drooping brows on one or both sides will persist. If it happens, the appearance of the patient may worsen instead of improving.

Furthermore, if the Botox injectable is administered close to the mid eyebrow, it carries the risk of causing ptosis, which is a condition of sagging or lazy eyelid. Such risks become very rare when Botox treatment is provided by an experienced and qualified injector.

Choice of Botox Expert

Dr. Edwards recommends that patients should receive Botox treatment from a board certified plastic surgeon or other similarly qualified healthcare professionals who have a thorough understanding of the facial anatomy and the potential action of Botox treatment. It is best for a patient to choose a properly trained and credentialed surgeon for Botox injectable treatment.
