What to Expect After Eyelid Surgery

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), eyelid surgery is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the country. Commonly known as blepharoplasty, this aesthetic surgery can give patients the ability to eliminate signs of exhaustion, stress, and age around the eyes—an area of the face that often exhibits these concerns most prominently. The result of blepharoplasty can be a more refreshed and youthful expression, thereby offering patients an effective treatment to minimize pronounced facial aging as well as resolve lax tissue in the upper eyelids that may be obstructing their vision. After upper and/or lower blepharoplasty, patients can expect to make a full return to their daily routines within seven to ten days. Bruising, swelling, tenderness, and discoloration is...

Combining a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction

Abdominoplasty, which is more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, can be a powerful way to slim the waistline and rid the abdominal area of loose, excess skin. After pregnancy or significant weight loss, many individuals find that a tummy tuck addresses inelastic skin and stretched musculature in ways that dieting and exercise cannot, offering a highly effective treatment to smooth and tighten the midsection. While the main goals of a tummy tuck are to remove excess skin while tightening abdominal musculature, most patients also struggle with fat pockets and stubborn bulges near the stomach region. “Love handles” and other exercise-resistant areas of localized fat often persist in spite of healthy habits, creating frustration for men and women who would like a figure that...

Breast Reduction vs. Breast Lift

If you are considering breast enhancement, you may be in the process of researching different procedures to learn which surgery can help you attain your desired look. While a breast reduction and breast lift are both popular options that can achieve comparable aesthetic goals—such as improving the shape and contour of the breasts—there are a few distinctions between the two procedures that may highlight the most ideal treatment for your concerns. Considered among the most gratifying cosmetic surgeries available, a breast reduction can benefit patients who feel their breast size is disproportionate to their body— an aesthetic imbalance that typically presents a number of physical and emotional burdens. The procedure is designed to remove excess skin, fat, and breast tissue, with the goal of reducing... Continue Reading

Safety Risks Associated with Fat Grafting in the Buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift)

A brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a procedure designed to achieve a rounder, more pronounced, and more shapely appearance in the buttocks. The surgery utilizes a patient’s own fat—harvested through liposuction—to add volume to the buttocks, thereby offering an alternative to gluteal implants that many consider more “natural.” In his commitment to maintaining clear and comprehensive patient education, Orlando plastic surgeon Jon Paul Trevisani, MD, FACS wants to ensure individuals considering buttock augmentation through fat grafting techniques are made aware of the recent safety risks associated with the procedure. A Multi-Society Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force* was recently formed following revelations that the mortality rate for a brazilian butt lift was approximately 1 in 3,000— the highest ratio of any aesthetic procedure, according to the...

What Are the Risks of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

As with any major surgery, there are some risks associated with tummy tuck surgery. Immediately following the procedure, patients can expect mild swelling, soreness, and bruising, though these side effects typically resolve quickly. Oral pain medication can be used to easily manage any post-operative discomfort. Our plastic surgeon in Orlando, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, uses the latest surgical techniques to maximize patient safety during the tummy tuck procedure. Since this is considered major surgery, an adverse reaction to anesthesia is a potential risk. Blood clots and/or infection are also potential risks of the surgery; however, Dr. Jon gives each patient detailed post-operative instructions to help minimize these risks. During the initial stages of recovery, patients should avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise. Dr. Jon... Continue Reading
