Tummy Tuck or Liposuction: Which Lubbock Plastic Surgery is Right for You?

Bringing a child into the world is beautiful in so many ways. But, motherhood can leave women with body changes that do not make them feel very beautiful. Pregnancy and breastfeeding often cause stretch marks, breast changes, weight gain, and fat buildup. Mothers deserve to feel confident, and when they have insecurities about their appearance, it is easier said than done. Lubbock plastic surgery can resolve all of the cosmetic issues that commonly affect women who have had children.    

For women ready to rediscover the body they had before aging and having children, there are several different plastic surgery procedures. Patients have options that enable them to address stubborn pockets of fat, loose belly skin, and other concerns. When it comes to Lubbock plastic surgery, you may have heard a lot of terms–tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, etc.–but how much do you know about what those procedures really involve? Below we’ll explain some of the common surgeries, what they are for, and how you might combine them to get the results you want.

What Can a Tummy Tuck Do?

A tummy tuck, “also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.” Every woman’s abdomen stretches while she is pregnant. Sometimes (especially after having multiple pregnancies), the skin does not return to the way it looked before pregnancy. Women can lose all of their baby weight and still have flabby skin hanging around their midsection.

Skin isn’t the only thing that is stretched beyond the point of return; women who have gone through pregnancy may also experience diastasis recti, a separation of the abdominal muscles. This condition cannot be fixed by doing ab workouts like sit ups or crunches; in fact, those exercises may actually make things worse. The skin looseness and laxity of muscle isn’t something that responds to diet or exercise–they are structural issues that require a surgical solution. A tummy tuck is the Lubbock plastic surgery that gets rid of that extra skin and repairs muscles that have been stretched during pregnancy. It creates a leaner abdominal area and helps tighten the core.

Because a tummy tuck is geared toward tightening up loose muscle and skin, it’s not a weight-loss procedure like liposuction (more on that below). But, like weight-loss techniques, it can result in more contoured appearance and slimmer silhouette. As with any medical decision, having a tummy tuck requires considerable thought, research, and planning. Dr. Jane Rowley has over 20 years of experience with abdominoplasty and has said this about the procedure: 

“This is actually a more significant procedure than most people understand. The media often portrays this as a ‘skin surgery,’ but this is a surgery that actually involves the entire core of your body, with tightening of the abdominal muscles and tightening of the skin. The results can be exceptional on the right patient. Although weight loss might not be significant with this procedure, contouring and tightening of the abdominal wall is significant.”

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Patients who undergo a tummy tuck should expect their procedure to last about two hours at an outpatient surgery center. This type of Lubbock plastic surgery requires the use of general anesthesia. Through a low horizontal incision, your surgeon will pull taut the skin that overlays the abdominal area, and get rid of the excess. Your abdominal muscles will be tightened with permanent sutures in multiple layers. The navel is repositioned and the skin is sutured back together. After the surgery is complete, you will need to have a drain in place for about one week. In 2-3 weeks, most patients should be able to return to work. A full recovery typically takes 6-8 weeks.

What is Liposuction?

Excess belly skin is not the only reason people seek body contouring procedures. Sometimes, the issue involves fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes your excess fat in a specific area. It’s a Lubbock plastic surgery option that helps remove stubborn fat in different areas of your body that don’t respond to the traditional approach to fat loss. 

Some body parts react better than others when fat is suctioned out. This is because skin elasticity varies in different regions of the body. If your doctor uses liposuction to remove fat from an area with poor elasticity, your procedure could make your skin look saggy or loose. Consider the following regions for the best liposuction results:

  • Outer thighs: For women in particular, the outer thighs can be a difficult place to lose fat. Genetics play a big role in whether you see fat accumulation in the outer thighs. When you use liposuction to slim this area, pants and jeans will fit better, and you will appear longer and leaner.
  • Hips: The hips are one of the biggest focal points of a woman’s body, but can be one of the toughest areas to slim down. When the hips are slimmer, it enhances the body because it makes the bust appear larger and gets rid of love handles. Liposuction eliminates excess fat on the hips and has a significant impact on the entire silhouette.  
  • Submental (chin/jawline) area: The submental region may not be commonly recognized as one of the top places to have liposuction, but it can have dramatic effects. As our bodies age, fat cells can gather around the neck area creating an unattractive fullness under the chin. Just a small amount of fat removal produces a significantly enhanced chin contour. Submental liposuction is a relatively simple Lubbock plastic surgery that can make you look younger and leaner.  

Liposuction: What to Expect

Different types of techniques are available for liposuction, but they operate on the same basic principle. First, a small incision is made. Next, a small tube (called a cannula) is used to suction out the fat. If you are having the procedure done on a small area, then local anesthetic is all that is needed. If you are choosing to have the procedure on multiple areas, you may need general anesthetics. After your procedure, you will need to wear compression garments for the first 2-4 weeks. Patients can experience mild to moderate pain and swelling for several weeks, but normal activities can be resumed fairly quickly. 

Liposuction has long been a popular Lubbock plastic surgery choice. Getting rid of unwanted fat can give you greater confidence in your physical appearance. New studies are even suggesting that getting rid of that fat can have some heart-healthy bonuses as well as the cosmetic benefits. Liposuction is not, however, a procedure for general weight loss. If you are able to maintain a healthy, stable weight but struggle with stubborn fat, you may be a good candidate for the procedure. Patients need to be in good health and should not smoke before the surgery or during recovery. 

Combine Procedures in a Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect women’s bodies in many different ways. If you are concerned about more than loose belly skin or stubborn areas of fat, you may want to consider how a tummy tuck or liposuction can be combined with other procedures. This combination of procedures is commonly referred to as a mommy makeover. Lubbock plastic surgery options done in tandem can give any patient dramatic changes in appearance. Here’s a look at some of the surgeries that are commonly combined with abdominal procedures.

Breast Augmentation 

Having children changes the breasts just as much as it affects the abdomen. As pregnancy hormones surge, the mother’s breasts increase in size. However, breastfeeding and losing baby weight often causes the breasts to shrink and look deflated or smaller than they did before pregnancy. Breast augmentation not only helps restore lost volume, it builds confidence and helps women feel more like themselves again. Women seeking breast enhancement with implants can adjust the size and shape of their breasts to achieve a fuller and more symmetric appearance. Some of the options for breast augmentation include:

  • Breast implant type: Saline, silicone gel, or IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants
  • Various sizes to fit your exact goals
  • Methods of placement: over or under the chest muscle
  • Incision locations: under breast crease (inframammary crease incision), around the areola (periareolar incision), or in the underarm area (trans-axillary incision)

Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the nation. Adding volume to the breasts helps many women feel more confident after experiencing breast changes during motherhood. With so many ways to customize your breast enlargement, you can get the look you once had or a whole new one. The choice is yours!

Breast Lift  

Renewed confidence in your breasts’ appearance doesn’t always require implants. Many women simply want a younger, fresher look without the added volume. Breasts can become saggy, elongated, tubular, or pendulous with multiple pregnancies and age. In these situations, Lubbock plastic surgery is the only way to give the bust a more normal appearance. A breast lift can assist patients by removing excess breast skin and adjusting the breasts into a more youthful position. The nipple is also moved to a more upward position. After a breast lift, shopping for clothing and swimwear is much easier (and more fun!) because the breasts are no longer hidden or stuffed into ill-fitting outfits. If you don’t wish to change the size of your chest, but do want a perkier look, then a breast lift may be right for you.  

Simultaneous Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift 

A breast lift alone won’t change the size of your breasts. If you want to increase your cup size, consider having a lift along with a breast augmentation. Combining these two procedures leads to shapely, larger, more youthful looking breasts. On the right patient they can provide a dramatic overall enhancement. 

Sometimes, sagging breasts do not respond well to the placement of breast implants. This happens with very large implants, as they can be too heavy for sagging breasts to support. Patients who want to add volume to their breasts at the same time as their breast lift should carefully consult with their doctor to ensure the procedures will complement each other. 

When to Consider a Mommy Makeover

The tummy and breasts often look very different after having children. A mommy makeover can be a convenient way to address all of your cosmetic desires at the same time. Keep in mind that having more than one Lubbock plastic surgery at once will increase your recovery time and can increase the risk of complications. However, on the right patient, combined procedures will yield beautiful results. Watch the video below for Dr. Rowley’s thoughts on mommy makeovers. 

How to Get the Most out of Lubbock Plastic Surgery

As with any plastic surgery, patients need to have realistic expectations about their results. The key to this is having thorough consultations with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Patients that are informed about their surgery tend to heal better and have more satisfying outcomes with their procedures. So, to ensure you are educated, don’t hesitate to ask your plastic surgeon questions such as:

  • How is the procedure performed?
  • What are the risks of this surgery?
  • What can I expect during recovery?
  • Will the results be permanent?
  • Will I need to have additional procedures down the road? 

Women can work with their board-certified surgeon to tailor the combination of procedures that meet their unique needs. Whether you have had children or not, plastic surgery can be a powerful tool to help boost your confidence and satisfaction with your appearance.

In Lubbock, Plastic Surgery Can Benefit Anyone

We all enjoy feeling good about our appearance. For most of us, the way we look matters much more than we would like to admit. Have you ever wondered why this is? People are visual creatures. We make quick judgments based on what we see and use first impressions to assess a person or situation. When you first meet someone, your brain will make assumptions in just a few seconds about their social status, attractiveness, and intelligence. While this instinct may have started out as a way to protect ourselves from danger, it has different consequences today. Now, it causes us to focus on our outward appearance so that we project the best image of ourselves to others. If you want to improve your self-image, Lubbock plastic surgery can help.   

Plastic Surgery for Men

While it is true that most plastic surgery patients are women, more and more men are seeking out cosmetic procedures now. Men and women will always be different and strive for attractiveness in different ways. It is human nature to gain confidence when we are happy with the way we look, and men are realizing the benefits of plastic surgery that women have been enjoying for a long time. According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, male patients represent 13 percent of the total surgical cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It’s a significant proportion, and there’s no sign of the trend slowing down any time soon. Here’s a look at some of the top cosmetic procedures for men.

Blepharoplasty

Women aren’t the only ones who want to slow down the signs of getting older. A lift for the eyelids can take years off a man’s aging face. In Lubbock, plastic surgery for the eyes is popular with men because it makes them look young and fresh without the appearance of obvious scars. In fact, blepharoplasty was the second most common plastic surgery for men in 2019. 

Excess skin or fat around the eyes can make men appear tired, old, or even angry. Wrinkles, droopy upper eyelids, as well as puffiness or bags under the eyes can be corrected with an eyelid lift. The upper and lower eyelids can be lifted at the same time, providing a dramatic rejuvenation of the face. Blepharoplasty typically takes about an hour if both eyelids are done together, or 30 minutes for either the upper or lower. Most patients have 2-3 days of downtime and can return to work after one week of recovery. If the patient experiences difficulty with vision because of the sagging skin around the eyes, insurance may cover the cost of surgery.   

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes extra skin and fat around the midsection for a thinner, firmer look. Hitting the gym every day and sticking to your healthy diet don’t always yield the results you want, especially if your goal is to get rid of a muffin top. When diet and exercise just don’t cut it, a tummy tuck can help men and women finally get rid of their stubborn belly bulge.   

A tummy tuck can help men the same way it helps women in Lubbock. Plastic surgery of this type gives men a tighter, leaner midsection by getting rid of any sagging skin or fat around the belly. Abdominal muscles tend to be a focal point for many men, and a tummy tuck benefits the abs by tightening them from within. Women often seek this option after having children, but they are not the only ones who struggle with flabby stomachs. Whether a man feels he has a “dad” body, has lost a dramatic amount of weight, or is just fighting the aging process, a tummy tuck can provide the lean, athletic look he wants.

Liposuction

Men pinch and dislike the fat on their love handles just like women do. It is frustrating for men and women alike when their efforts at the gym and dedication to dieting just don’t get the results they want. Like a tummy tuck, liposuction is a body contouring procedure that creates a slimmer appearance by removing fat. But liposuction is unique in that it targets specific spots of stubborn fat to enhance different areas of the body. It is not a weight loss surgery for men or women, but it can help smooth out those problem areas. 

Not every part of the body with extra flab is a good place to have liposuction. Skin laxity plays an important role in the procedure’s final outcome. If fat is suctioned from an area with poor skin elasticity, the patient can be left with sagging skin. Plastic surgeons recommend the following areas because they typically respond best to liposuction:

  • outer thighs
  • hips 
  • chin or submental region
  • chest (especially for men with gynecomastia)
  • love handles
  • back

If you are having just a couple of small areas treated with liposuction, your procedure will require only the use of a local anesthetic. However, if there are multiple or larger areas that need attention, general anesthesia may be administered during your Lubbock plastic surgery. Recovery after liposuction is fairly rapid for most patients. After 2-3 days you should be ready to return to work, but keep in mind that you may need to wear compression garments for 2-4 weeks. Mild to moderate pain and swelling can last up to 4-6 weeks. For Dr. Rowley’s thoughts on liposuction, watch the video below: 

The #1 Procedure for Women

Women make up the vast majority of Lubbock plastic surgery patients. There are many cosmetic procedures from which to choose, but one has stood out in recent years as the most popular option. Breast augmentation is the top cosmetic surgical procedure for women in the U.S. and has been for many years. Options for size, shape, placement, and type of implant enable women to get results that are completely customized. 

Women seek breast enhancement for several reasons. Pregnancy and breastfeeding leaves many women with smaller, deflated looking breasts. Some women have asymmetrical breasts, and others have breasts that may have never fully matured. Breast augmentation solves all of these problems and helps patients feel more confident in their appearance. The procedure isn’t just about making the breasts larger; it’s about enhancing your femininity and creating more balance and proportion in your figure. If you are interested in enhancing your breasts with implants, check out the video below.

The desire to appear attractive to others is part of human nature. It motivates us to take care of our bodies by eating healthy, exercising, and grooming daily. Although it presents itself in different ways, this instinct is present in men, women, and children in Lubbock. Plastic surgery is a tool that can be used to enhance the beauty, physique, and confidence of people who wish to improve a certain aspect of their appearance. We are used to seeing women dominate the plastic surgery demographics, but men and even children can benefit from it as well. Some of the most popular procedures for men include:

  • Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
  • Liposuction

Your Most Important Decision

Choosing a well-qualified plastic surgeon is the best thing you can do to ensure you have a positive plastic surgery experience. But how do you know if your doctor is qualified or not? Here are a few things to consider as you search for the right plastic surgeon for your procedure:

Board-Certification

The first thing you should check is that your surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This means they have the training and knowledge necessary to safely perform Lubbock plastic surgery. Learn more about the importance of board-certification in the video below:

Experience

A plastic surgeon with substantial experience will have the ability to assess your needs and execute the procedure with skill. When you are making permanent changes to your appearance, it only makes sense to choose a doctor with plenty of practice with your specific procedure. 

Results

One way to learn about a plastic surgeon is to browse through their before and after photo gallery. Look for consistent positive results that match up with your own aesthetic sense. If you don’t like what you see, you may want to consider another surgeon.

Do your research on any plastic surgeon you are considering. Read online reviews and talk to friends and family who many have referrals based on their own Lubbock plastic surgery. But, most importantly, trust your gut. If you meet with a plastic surgeon and things just don’t feel right, move on and find a doctor with whom you are more comfortable.

Rejuvenate Your Feminine Side With a Breast Lift

Do you remember the last time you looked in the mirror and thought how great and perky your breasts looked? Maybe it was before you had children. Perhaps it was before you lost weight. Or perhaps, like many women, you have never felt that way about your breasts. Your breasts should help you feel beautiful and feminine, not embarrassed or self-conscious. Many women deal with too little or too much volume, sagging, and other breast issues. With a breast lift performed by a skilled board-certified plastic surgeon, you can have the breasts that help you feel more confident when you look in the mirror.

Plastic Surgery for the Breasts

It’s easy to name the things we don’t love about our bodies. Many of those imperfections can be resolved with simple improvements in our diet and exercise habits. Whether you want to lose weight or you want to tone up your muscles, you have the ability to reach those goals on your own. With breast problems, however, it’s a different story. You can’t use exercise or a healthy diet to fix sagging breasts. Some cosmetic issues require the talents of a well-qualified plastic surgeon. If your breasts droop and are taking your confidence down with them, it might be time to look into mastopexy

Understanding Mastopexy

Mastopexy, more often called a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that corrects sagging and drooping of the breasts. The procedure has seen tremendous growth in popularity, increasing in demand by 114 percent since 2000 (according to the latest statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).  Women seek out the surgery when factors such as aging, gravity, pregnancy, or weight loss have caused their breasts to sag, droop, or appear deflated.

A breast lift is a procedure that involves multiple steps to achieve a more youthful look. The removal of extra skin and breast tissue allows your breasts to sit in a higher position. Stretched areolas are reduced in size to match the new shape of the breasts. The nipple is also moved up to sit higher on the breast to help with forward projection and help your breasts look perkier overall.

Breast Lift Techniques

You can choose from several different types of incisions to rejuvenate your breasts. The method you select will depend on the results you want and the amount of ptosis (or sagging) you have. Do some research and talk to your plastic surgeon about which approach would best fit your needs.

  • Crescent Lift: This method is one of the lesser-used ways to achieve a breast lift, as it addresses the mildest amount of sagging. The crescent-shaped incision follows the top half edge of the areola, resulting in minimal scarring. Plastic surgeons use a crescent lift when the patient has very little sagging or minor drooping of the nipples. It can be used when combining a lift with breast augmentation. 
  • Donut Lift: Patients with fairly mild sagging benefit from the single-scar donut lift (also known as a peri-areolar lift). The incision outlines the outer edge of the areola. Like the crescent lift, it addresses a minor amount of sagging and is often performed in addition to breast enhancement with implants.
  • Lollipop Lift: The most common of all breast lift techniques, the lollipop or vertical lift is meant to resolve moderate sagging. This method involves more than one incision, but it creates more dramatic results than the single-scar lifts. Your plastic surgeon makes cuts around the outside circle of the areola and vertically down the bottom half of the breast in a lollipop-like shape. 
  • Anchor Lift: Women with tubular, pendulous, or severely sagging breasts may need a more substantial amount of skin and tissue removed. Your plastic surgeon achieves this by making incisions around the areola, vertically down the bottom half of the breast, and horizontally under the crease of the breast. Breast reduction patients often benefit from the anchor lift.

Every approach to mastopexy involves scarring. Fortunately, the scars will fade over time if they are properly cared for. And, no one will even be able to see the scars except for you and those who see you without clothes. According to RealSelf, 95 percent of women say the procedure is “worth it.” Most patients find that the improvements in their breasts are more than worth the hidden scars. Talk to your doctor about whether the advantages of mastopexy would be worth it for you.

Breast Lift Candidates

If you are unsure if mastopexy is right for you, a simple test you can do at home can offer more insight. Place a pencil horizontally under the crease of your breast. If the pencil stays put when you let go, you may have enough sagging for a lift. Additionally, if your answer is yes to any of the following questions, you may want to talk to your doctor about the possibility of a lift for your breasts.

  • Do your nipples point down instead of forward?
  • Are you unhappy with how much your breasts sag or droop?
  • Do your nipples sit below the crease of your breasts?
  • Are your breasts different sizes?
  • Are your breasts long, flat, or pendulous?

Watch the video below to learn more about mastopexy.

Pairing a Breast Lift With Other Procedures

Sometimes a lift is all that is needed to fix what bothers women about their breasts. But, if you want to add volume or reduce your bust size, you should consider adding a breast augmentation or a reduction to your lift to achieve those results. A lift alone will rejuvenate your breasts, but it will not change their size by much.

Breast Augmentation 

If your breasts have only mild sagging, the addition of breast implants may be enough to provide the lift you need. Breasts that sag more severely and lack the volume you want can be transformed by combining mastopexy with breast augmentation. After having these two procedures done together, your breasts can be fuller, perkier, and have more forward projection. Women have several options for breast implants, including saline, silicone gel, and IDEAL IMPLANT ® Structured Breast Implants. Talk to your doctor about which type would best help you achieve your cosmetic goals. 

Breast augmentation and mastopexy can be an effective combination for many women, but they do not work together perfectly for every patient. Mastopexy may not be the best choice for women who want very large implants, because the weight of those implants can cause the breasts to sag even further. Your plastic surgeon can advise you on whether the combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift is right for you.   

Breast Reduction

When most people think of cosmetic breast issues, they imagine breasts that are too small or flat. However, there are a great number of women who feel their breasts are too large. An oversized chest is more than just a burden; it can lead to pain and discomfort throughout the body. Women with very large breasts often suffer from problems including:

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Painful grooves from bra straps digging into shoulders
  • Skin irritation or rash underneath the breasts
  • Embarrassment about breast size
  • Decreased mobility
  • Neurologic symptoms including tingling and numbness in the arms and hands

If your breasts are too big for your liking or cause you pain, reducing their size can bring much-needed relief. A breast reduction is almost always done with a lift because the surgeries complement each other so well. Plastic surgeons perform the procedures in tandem to provide a more proportionate and shapely bust. The reduction removes excess breast tissue and skin, and the lift elevates the areola and nipple to a more normal position. Stretched areolas are re-sized. The end result is a lighter, smaller, perkier bust and a happier, more confident patient. In fact, Dr. Rowley’s breast reduction patients are some of her happiest clients because of the immediate relief they feel after surgery. 

Options For a Mommy Makeover

We love our babies and would do anything for them, but that does not mean we love all the effects childbearing has on our bodies. The breasts begin to sag, deflate, or can even balloon up after breastfeeding. The tummy, after being stretched to the limit, often has a hard time recovering. Loose skin, separated abdominal muscles, and stubborn fat are also common problems for women who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth. A breast lift is a popular procedure for mothers to choose when they are finished having children. Other procedures often included in a mommy makeover are:

  • Liposuction – As excited as you may be when you see your pre-baby weight back on the scale, you may not feel that same enthusiasm when you look in the mirror. This dissatisfaction happens for many women whose bodies still carry areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction targets these specific spots and gets rid of the fat to reveal and enhance the natural beauty of your own curves. Although it is not a weight loss procedure, liposuction can provide exceptional results on the right patient in the right areas of the body. 
  • Tummy tuck – Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, has dramatic effects on the abdominal area. After pregnancy or weight loss, the skin around the belly can sag. Sit-ups, planks, and crunches can help strengthen your core, but they can’t get rid of the hanging skin. A tummy tuck removes loose skin and fat, and tightens ab muscles to give you a flat, lean stomach. Although it is not a substitute for healthy eating or exercise, a tummy tuck removes the flabby skin that so many of us seem to gain after pregnancy.

Combining liposuction or a tummy tuck with a procedure like a breast lift can transform your entire look. Patients have found greater satisfaction with their appearance and enhanced confidence in their everyday lives with plastic surgery. If you want to get your pre-baby body back or just want to look better in a swimsuit, talk to your doctor about which procedures could benefit you. 

Breast Issues, Solved

Eating right and getting proper exercise can help with many of the things we want to change about our bodies, but breast complaints are on a different level. It is not easy to feel confident in your appearance when you no longer fill out the bras you wore before you had children. It is not fun to carry around heavy, attention-getting breasts around all the time. Sagging breasts do not often help us feel beautiful or feminine. When you are ready to move past these or other common breast issues, plastic surgery may be able to help. A breast lift can restore a youthful, perky look to your breasts and make your confidence soar. Remember to consider the following when deciding to undergo mastopexy:

  • Decide if you need the procedure. Ask yourself the right questions and even do the pencil test at home to see just how much sagging you have.
  • A lift will not make your cup size go up or down. If you want to add or take away breast volume, talk to your doctor about breast augmentation or reduction in conjunction with mastopexy.
  • You may be correcting problems with your breasts caused by having children. If you have other areas that would benefit from cosmetic surgery, a mommy makeover might be a convenient way to achieve your results.
