OK, we know that Christmas arrives way too early each year. Holiday tunes come on the radio and lighted trees fill up the department stores as soon as the Halloween décor goes down. However, when it comes to prepping for the Christmas holidays, you simply have to think ahead. The same rule applies for planning a cosmetic procedure, if you want to ensure you look picture-perfect for Santa. That’s why Thanksgiving is the perfect time to schedule your rejuvenating cosmetic surgery procedure, meaning you will be fully recovered by the time old’ Saint Nick slides down the chimney.
Get Ready for Christmas with a Blepharoplasty, Liposuction, or Fat Transfer
Tired eyes look distracted and unhealthy, plus they really show your age. A blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, will eliminate the sagging, lax skin of the upper eyelid to give your eyes a more awake appearance. Eye makeup will go on easier, and in some cases, getting rid of the delicate drooping tissue actually means your vision will improve. Frustrated with under eye ‘bags’? A lower eyelid lift will get rid of those bulging fat pads under your eyes, rejuvenating your peepers and taking years off your appearance.
The blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure. Recovery takes one to two weeks, but most patients are back to their routine activities in less than a week.
Today’s liposuction techniques provide custom-tailored results, smoothing and contouring just about any area of the body. Whether you are looking to trim down that ‘muffin top’ along your abdomen, sculpt your upper arms, or tighten up a ‘turkey neck’, liposuction can provide the best results for your needs. Face, it, some fatty tissue is impossible to decrease through diet and exercise. Dr. Vitenas will meticulously eliminate unwanted fatty tissue so that you know your desired results will be a reality.
Liposuction will take from one to three hours to perform, depending on the treatment area and correction needed. Expect one to two weeks of recovery, and mild swelling that may take longer to resolve. Plan early to look your best.
A fat transfer is designed to add shape and contour to areas of your body that have lost volume over the years. This can be along the cheeks and jawline, your hands, breasts, buttocks, or even your calves. Dr. Vitenas will use liposuction to harvest fat from unwanted areas, like your stomach, process the cells, and then reinject them into the targeted area. With an artistic eye, Dr. Vitenas can create natural-looking results and a healthy contour for your face, breasts, and body with a fat transfer procedure.
The fat transfer is performed in Dr. Vitenas’ private surgical suite, taking one to two hours. Depending on the treatment area, recovery time is one to two weeks. Your new appearance will, by far, be your favorite Christmas present this year!
