Get Bikini Body Ready Now!

Bloomfield Hills, MI – The temperatures may be dropping outside, but if you are thinking you might want to have plastic surgery before summer rolls back around, now is actually the perfect time to do it.

“Getting bikini body ready can’t happen overnight,” says Dr. Ali, a Michigan plastic surgeon. “And if you aren’t seeing the results you want after diet and exercise, and are thinking about a cosmetic procedure, it’s important that you take into account recovery time. Recovery from most procedures isn’t instantaneous, and you’ll want to be sure you are pain-free before scheduling vacations or beach trips. So the earlier you plan your surgeries, the better.”

So what are the top surgeries that can help you be ready for summer?

1. Liposuction
Lipo slims and reshapes specific areas of the body through removal of fat deposits. It also can improve the proportion and contour of your body. The best areas for liposuction are the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, inner knee, back, neck and chin, calves, and ankles. It can take several months for the swelling associated with liposuction to fully subside, so be sure you plan your procedure accordingly.

2. Breast augmentation
If you would like fuller breasts to fill out your bikini this year, a breast augmentation can provide beautiful results. The initial recovery period is several days, but it can take a few weeks for the pain and swelling to subside, and for you to see the final results.

3. Breast lift
Breast lift procedures continue to increase in popularity for women who simply want to rejuvenate their appearance. The procedure will not significantly change the size or shape of the breast, but will help a woman regain the youthful appearance and firmness of her breasts. It can take a month or more for all swelling and bruising to go away and for the results to be visible.

4. Brazilian butt lift
If you want a fuller, rounder butt to fill out your bikini bottom, a Brazilian butt lift is your answer. Fat is removed from other areas of your body, and re-injected into your buttocks. The result is a fuller, rounder and lifted bottom that is beach ready. It can take at least three weeks to recover from a butt lift procedure, during which time you can’t sit on your backside.

5. Tummy tuck
A tummy tuck is a great way to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, while also stretngthening weakened or stretched stomach muscles. The result is a smoother and firmer looking belly. Many women, especially those who have had children, love the results a tummy tuck can provide. Recovery from an abdominoplasty can take a few weeks.

“It’s ideal to have one of these procedures a couple of months prior to wanting to be bikini ready,” says Dr. Ali. “That way, you have allowed yourself ample time to fully recover, you will no longer experience any pain or swelling, and your incision will have begun to heal and fade.”

If you have tried diet and exercise and just can’t get the results you want, cosmetic surgery can provide you with the look you’ve worked hard for. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali today.

Plastic Surgery – Erasing the Stigma

Bloomfield Hills, MI – There used to be a time when a visit to the office of a plastic surgeon was hidden and even lied about. For years, plastic surgery had a negative stigma associated with it. But that’s not the case any longer, as statistics show that the number of Americans seeking out cosmetic procedures continues to increase.

“In 2014 alone, Americans spent more than $12 billion on plastic surgery, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons,” says Dr. Ali. “Not only that, the number of male plastic surgery procedures increased nearly 43 percent. More people are realizing that there shouldn’t be any shame or embarrassment associated with having work done.”

Plastic surgery has been around for quite some time. In fact, ancient Egyptians are said to have played around with reshaping the nose, and in the 1700s British physicians visiting India brought back techniques that would lead to the modern day nose job. The first recorded breast augmentation was performed in 1895, and the first breast implant materials were used in 1899. The first formal training program in the United States was established at Johns Hopkins in 1924. And Hollywood stars were visiting the surgeon’s office as early as Hollywood’s golden age in the 1930s and 40s.

For years, people, especially those in Hollywood, tried to hide their visits to their surgeon’s offices, though.

“For some reason, in the earlier days, and even until rather recently, plastic surgery has carried a negative image,” says Dr. Ali. “While it can certainly be overdone, most people who get plastic surgery procedures are doing it to improve their lives. Certified and trained plastic surgeons work hard to better the lives of our patients.”

In 2014, Americans had a total of 15.6 million procedures, both minimally-invasive and surgical. The demand for plastic surgery continues to grow as we see great strides in technology and procedures. This creates more options for patients looking to improve themselves.

And for those who think people who turn to plastic surgery are simply trying to recapture their youth, that’s not necessarily the case. When asked why they opted for surgery, many women often state they have a desire to look more refreshed and to look on the outside the way they feel on the inside. That doesn’t necessarily mean looking like a 25 year old again.

“Plastic surgery has advanced so much that we can accomplish beautiful and natural looking results, without it even really looking as if you’ve had work done,” says Dr. Ali. “Years ago, it was much more obvious to tell who had visited a surgeon. But today, we can help you achieve a more refreshed look that will often leave people wondering if you had surgery, or if you’ve just been taking better care of yourself.”

And this, perhaps, is why we are seeing the number of procedures performed continuing to increase. When your best friend suddenly has a relaxed, glowing look and seems to be enjoying life more than ever, it can be hard not to want the same thing for yourself.

“I tell my patients all the time that plastic surgery should be done for one person and one person only – themselves,” says Dr. Ali. “It is such a joy to watch someone become truly happy once again after a procedure. If you hate looking in the mirror every day, your life will begin to suffer. And there is simply no reason why that should be, and I love seeing that the stigma associated with my work is falling away.”

If you’re ready to discover the power of plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali today.

 

Are you a candidate for breast enhancement surgery?

Breast enhancement surgery is the number one cosmetic surgery in the U. S. today. Over 300,000 procedures were performed in 2013 – so you are not alone if you are contemplating it. What are the issues you should consider?

First, you must be physically and mentally healthy, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of surgery. If you are battling anxiety or depression, or if you are in a rocky relationship, breast augmentation surgery is not the solution.

If, however, you are bothered by the changes that have occurred in your breasts over the years, from pregnancy, weight loss or aging, you may be the perfect candidate. Volume loss in the breast is very common, and there is no way to effectively re-build it through exercise or medications. Some women notice a flattening of the top of the breast; others are disappointed with their breasts’ elongated appearance.

Some women are naturally small-breasted and would like to have bigger breasts. Most women who choose breast augmentation increase their size by one or two cups. Hollywood starlets and supermodels might go for the knock-out effect, but it’s not the typical Mommy Makeover.

If you think breast augmentation might be right for you, seek a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Ali, to perform the procedure. Dr. Ali will meet with you and formulate an individualized plan that takes into account your body frame and your desired outcome. His kind and compassionate nature, and his experience and expertise, will guide you to a successful outcome. Contact Dr. Ali today!

 

Breast Augmentation Patients Report High Satisfaction

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgeries and a study published in the May 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery shows that satisfaction rates are high. More than 91% of the 225 patients interviewed said the procedure met or exceeded their expectations and 98.7% indicated they would do it again. Furthermore, 91.1% of those surveyed reported increased self-esteem, and 64.3% reported improved quality of life.

Careful screening and the proper setting of expectations play a role in this level of satisfaction. Dr. Ali is very thorough and careful in assessing each patient’s health and expectations for the surgery. This insures that expectations and realistic and achievable.

Breast Enhancement: Your Options

Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. M. Azhar Ali has released a patient information whitepaper that outlines the various options for breast enhancement. The whitepaper provides a solid overview of breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and nipple surgery.

“When a patient is considering a breast enhancement it’s very difficult to find a good overview of the various options,” said Dr. Ali. “This whitepaper provides patients with a general understanding of various procedures and provides guidance for further consideration and research.”

The whitepaper can be downloaded at Intro to Breast Enhancement: Understanding Your Options.
