If you’re ready to firm, shape, and lift your butt, then a BBL, or Brazilian Buttocks Lift, can help. Here at Kadz Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Bruce Kadz has the talent, artistry, and sheer skill it takes to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. For centuries, having a shapely figure and backside has been eponymous with glamour, sexiness, and beauty. Contact us today to learn more about the cosmetic surgery options we provide and schedule your initial consultation. What Does BBL Mean? A BBL, or Brazilian Butt Lift, is a butt augmentation procedure that uses your body’s own fat to create and shape your butt, so it looks lifted and perky. If you’ve been dieting and exercising to no end, and you’re still unhappy with the appearance of your backside, getting a Brazilian Butt Lift could be the solution you need. Not only will you have a gorgeous, shapely butt, you’ll also be able to have fat removed from another problem area on your body, making your shape look more defined and womanly. Essentially, you get two procedures done simultaneously, making it a convenient choice for many women. Dr. Kadz is an expert at performing Brazilian Butt Lifts and will use liposuction to remove fat from a different area of your body and then move it to your butt, creating more shape so you have a generous backside. The procedure itself is entirely safe and FDA-approved. What to Expect During Your Initial Consultation During your initial consultation, you can talk to our team and let us know where you would like to transfer fat from on your body. Then, we’ll discuss your general medical history and any questions or concerns you may have. It’s important to us that each of our patients gets the compassionate, high-quality treatment they deserve. That’s why each of our patients is given a customized treatment plan to help them achieve their unique body goals and individual needs. Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants So, you may be wondering what the difference is between a butt lift and a butt implant. An implant is just that: an external source that is placed into your body. A butt lift uses your body’s own natural fat to increase its shape. Usually, most of our patients prefer a butt lift since there’s little to no risk for an allergic reaction, which is sometimes a problem with implants. Also, this procedure comes with a double bonus: you get to lose fat from another area in your body! Plus, it’s considered the more natural option since it uses your body’s own tissue and fat instead of silicone or plastic. Natural Results There’s another great benefit to choosing a BBL: it provides natural results that will give your booty an authentic bounce, so it looks completely natural. In the hands of an inexperienced doctor, implants can look a little stiff or unnatural. That’s why many patients prefer a butt lift instead. In fact, most of our patients don’t even look like they’ve had work done at all. It’s the perfect solution to getting that bangin’ body you want without having to slave away in the gym for hours or suffering through a fad diet that doesn’t work. Dr. Kadz is an expert and has the talent it requires to make your body look gorgeous and youthful. Who Is a Suitable Candidate for This Treatment? If you’re unhappy with the shape or appearance of your butt, and you also want to take advantage of losing fat in another area of your body, then you’re an excellent candidate for a BBL. In fact, getting a Brazilian Butt Lift can help you finally attain those body aesthetics goals you’ve been dreaming about for so long. If you’re not sure whether you have enough fat to make this procedure a viable option, all you have to do is come into our office for a consultation. We’ll be happy to let you know if you’re a viable candidate and what you can expect to see for results from this procedure. Many of our patients who have received this procedure say that their butts now look fuller, bigger, and less saggy. However, we’ll be able to customize and create the shape to your exact liking. Customized Treatment Plan Each of our patients has a different body and different goals, so each butt lift procedure is different. We’ll create a customized treatment plan for you to help you achieve your unique treatment goals. There’s no one-size-fits-all procedure when it comes to a butt lift, so every person that walks into our office receives a custom treatment plan that’s just as unique as they are. Preparing for Your Procedure It’s important to follow correct preparation prior to your treatment. The first step is to be fully aware of exactly what your results will look like. Our team, led by Dr. Kadz, will give you a comprehensive overview of exactly what to expect about your new shape. It’s also crucial for you to cut back or ideally quit smoking for a few weeks before your treatment. You should also be getting good rest and drinking lots of water, so your body stays hydrated. Another necessary preparation is taking lots of vitamins and nutrients and eating a healthy, balanced diet. It will all help speed up your recovery, so you’ll be back to feeling like yourself soon enough. If you work out already, you can work out up until your surgery to help keep your stress levels down and your blood pumping. What Can I Do to Maximize My Results? All of our patients want to keep their results lasting as long as possible. To do this, we recommend a few different lifestyle changes you can make to maintain your results for longer. Don’t fret, though, because most of these lifestyle changes will benefit your life, so it’s essential to follow them after your surgery to keep your body looking tight and beautiful, and your booty looking shapely and trim. Quit Smoking We mentioned this before, but it’s important that you quit smoking. It will age you prematurely, and it’s very bad for your heart and circulatory system as well. You need to have plenty of oxygen pumping through your body to help you recover faster, and smoking will deplete your oxygen levels. If you need to, find a support group to help you cut back, or in an ideal world, quit altogether. Stay Hydrated It’s also crucial to drink a ton of water so you can stay hydrated before your BBL. It helps your body function correctly and can speed up your recovery time. You should try and drink at least eight glasses of water every day—and no, we don’t mean soda: just water. If you don’t like the taste of plain water, throw in an additive like lemon or cucumber or try a no-sugar squeeze flavoring or powder to change the flavor. Eat a Balanced Diet You should also eat a healthy, balanced diet to keep your results looking trim and tight. It helps you heal faster and allows you to maintain your desired weight after your procedure. Eat foods with little to no processing, and look for snacks with good fats like fish or avocado. You can also eat plant-based foods, and of course, reduce your sugar intake as well. Exercise Regularly Another important lifestyle change to help you maintain your results is exercising regularly. Regular exercise will help you keep your body goals where you want them, build your muscles, and keep your weight down. Build your core and your lower body, and try squats to keep your booty looking tight. Anytime you strength train your legs and glutes, you’re going to love the results. Try to get at least half an hour of good cardio or strength training every day. Get a Gorgeous, Full Booty If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your booty, or it doesn’t look as perky as it used to, we can help. Getting a BBL, or Brazilian Butt Lift is the solution you need to attain that womanly, trim figure with a big booty that you’ve always admired. Here at Kadz Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, our aesthetics experts will help you attain your beauty and figure goals with the help of a butt lift.

Do you have excess abdominal fat that you just can’t budge? Do you wish it was possible to target regions of your body for fat removal? You probably know that you can’t spot-reduce fat regardless of what you eat or what type of exercise you do. However, with lipo at the office of Dr. Bruce Kadz in Beverly Hills, CA, you can target areas of your body for fat removal. Today, we’re looking at whether this procedure can provide you with a flat stomach. Can You Get a Flat Stomach From Lipo? Yes, it is possible to get a flat stomach from lipo. However, it is not a guarantee. This procedure can only remove around a third of the fat in a large targeted area, like the abdomen. Also, it is possible that the only way to achieve a flat stomach is receiving a tummy tuck. Sometimes, during pregnancy, the lower abdominal muscles become so damaged that they stick out, creating a “pouch.” How Soon Can You See the Results From This Procedure in 2023? You can expect to see the final results of your procedure after roughly one to three months post-op. Even though the excess fat cells are suctioned out of your body through a cannula at the time of your procedure, your skin needs time to adjust to your new contours. How quickly your skin adjusts to your new contours depends on the elasticity of your skin. To see your results as quickly as possible, focus on drinking lots of water and eating nutritiously. How Long Do the Results of This Procedure Last? The fat removal results of this procedure are permanent, but you will have to be conscious of your caloric intake if you want to keep your flat stomach. While removing roughly one-third of your abdominal fat may be enough to flatten your stomach, you should not forget the two-thirds of your abdominal fat that this operation leaves behind. These fat cells are unharmed by the procedure and fully capable of storing excess energy in a caloric surplus. Therefore, it is imperative that you do a good job of maintaining your weight following your procedure. Steps you can take to maintain your weight include drinking plenty of water, eating plenty of protein, walking, and rowing indoors on an ergometer. Drinking Plenty of Water One of the easiest steps you can take to maintain your weight for the rest of your life is to ensure that you remain hydrated. A good rule of thumb is for women to drink around 64 ounces of hydrating fluids daily and men to drink double this amount. However, this varies significantly based on one’s weight, activity level, and diet. You may need to drink more than the average person if you are more active. You may need to drink less than the average person if your diet contains a lot of foods that have a high water content, like fruits, most vegetables, and broth-based soup. Note, you should not count on your thirst to be a good indicator of hydration. People only feel thirsty after they have been dehydrated for quite a while. Also, thirst cues are often mistaken for hunger cues. How Drinking Water Helps You Maintain Your Weight Drinking enough water and other hydrating fluids, like black coffee and unsweetened tea, will help you maintain your weight for a couple of reasons. First, as stated above, people often feel thirsty but mistake their thirst cues for hunger cues. This causes them to consume more calories than they need to maintain their weight, resulting in fat gain. Second, hydration is crucial for the efficiency of your fat metabolism. If you are dehydrated, your fat metabolism cannot operate as efficiently as it should, so you will burn less fat than you should. Also, people who are dehydrated often feel tired and consume sugary foods and drinks for a quick energy boost. This often results in excess calorie consumption. Additionally, water, black coffee, and unsweetened tea will help you feel full without taking up any room in your daily calorie budget so you can eat more food daily. Eating Plenty of Protein Eating plenty of protein is another great way to make weight maintenance easier. This is because protein is so satiating without being calorie-dense. Some people find healthy fats to be satiating, but dietary fat contains nine calories per gram while protein only contains four calories per gram. Like hydration needs, individual protein needs vary. However, sedentary women should aim to consume at least 46 grams of protein daily. The average sedentary man typically needs to consume 56 grams of protein daily. If you’re trying to increase your muscle mass, you will need to eat more protein. However, even if you are sedentary and only consume around 50 to 60 grams of protein per day, there is a reduced chance that you will overeat because you will feel fuller for longer while consuming fewer calories than people with fat-laden diets. Walking Generally, you should get at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise weekly for your health. If you are trying to lose weight, you should be getting at least five hours of moderate exercise weekly. If you don’t have time to get five hours of moderate exercise weekly, you should perform at least 2.5 hours of vigorous exercise. Walking is one of the best ways to get in the exercise you need for your health and boost your metabolism due to its accessibility. As an added bonus, studies suggest that walking is a short-term appetite suppressant. Therefore, if you go on a 30-minute walk before dinner, you may consume fewer calories because you won’t have as much of an appetite. Rowing Indoors Walking is a great way to help you maintain your weight because it is accessible and may act as an appetite suppressant. However, it is by no means the most efficient way to boost your metabolism. For the ultimate calorie-torcher, you’ll want to join your nearest gym with an ergometer or purchase to keep in your home gym. Swimming is often regarded as an excellent way to burn calories quickly. However, the average person only burns between 360 and 600 calories per hour swimming depending on the stroke and intensity. On the other hand, it is possible to burn 800 calories per hour on an ergometer. Also, indoor rowing, like swimming, is a low-impact activity so your joints will thank you if you opt for this calorie-burning method over running. Additionally, indoor rowing is simple once you get the hang of proper form. Here’s how to row properly. The Catch “The catch” is the first phase of indoor rowing. This phase starts with you sitting with your shins vertical. If your ankles aren’t flexible enough to allow for vertical shins, make sure your shins are as close to vertical as you can get them. You should be leaned forward at the hips with your extended arms parallel to the floor. Also, your back should be straight, and your head should be neutral. The Drive “The drive” is the second phase of indoor rowing. It involves pushing with your legs until they are fully extended. Once your legs are extended completely, you should lean backwards from your hips until your shoulders are aligned vertically with your hips. The Finish “The finish” is the third phase of indoor rowing. It involves leaning backwards from your hips until your back is at approximately a 45-degree angle. Then you should pull the handle to your ribcage with your lats. Finally, you should reverse the rowing processing to return to the catch. Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me? During your initial consultation, Dr. Bruce Kadz will meet with, evaluate your abdominal region, and discuss your aesthetic goals. To reiterate, if you don’t have a lot of lower abdominal fat and you have severely damaged abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck is the only way to achieve the flat stomach you desire. Also, a tummy tuck may be required to achieve a flat stomach if you have excess skin or loose, sagging, wrinkled skin. Schedule Your Initial Lipo Consultation Today It is possible that lipo can give you the flat stomach you desire. However, if your lower abdominal muscles were injured and are now distended, a tummy tuck may be necessary in lieu of or in addition to a fat removal procedure. To find out how you can finally achieve the flat stomach you desire, contact us today at the office of Dr. Bruce Kadz in Beverly Hills, CA to schedule your initial body contouring consultation.
At Dr. Kadz Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, Tummy tuck specials in California we have a lot of individuals looking to remove excess abdominal skin, correct lower back pain, and boost the overall appearance of their waistline. They are aware that a tummy tuck could greatly improve their aesthetic and overall health. But they also have a few questions. Read further to learn everything about this procedure. The Amount of Weight You Can Lose After a Tummy Tuck in 2023 One of the most common questions patients ask Dr. Bruce Kadz is how much weight they’re likely to lose after a tummy tuck. The truth is that you might lose weight after a tummy tuck, but not that much. The number of pounds you lose from this surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, depends on a range of factors. Some of these factors include how much tummy skin you have, how much weight you need to lose, and the type of abdominoplasty you undergo. Overall, you should expect to shed off anywhere from 4-15 pounds with an abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty is an excellent choice for those who want to tighten and flatten their abdominal areas. However, while the surgery can boost your efforts to lose weight, it shouldn’t be viewed as an all-inclusive weight loss treatment. What abdominoplasty can do, though, is complement your body-contouring goals. How Much Extra Skin Do You Have? Ever wondered how much of the extra skin around your belly weighs? Ideally, patients that have lost weight successfully often have a lot of unnecessary tummy skin. The amount of weight you’ll shed off after your surgery will vary depending on the amount of extra skin you have. Naturally, post-bariatric patients lose more pounds as they have more tummy skin. Some lose 10-15 pounds from their surgery. Those choosing a tummy tuck to regain their body shape due to pregnancies or aging lose fewer pounds. Some don’t even notice any signs of weight loss, and others experience a nominal weight loss; usually five pounds or less. Often, this surgery stimulates future weight loss, making it simpler and more comfortable to stretch. What Type of Tummy Tuck Should You Get? Based on your aesthetic objective, Dr. Bruce will recommend one of the following abdominoplasties available: 1. Full or Classic Abdominoplasty A full abdominoplasty is utilized when you want to address the section above and below your belly button, the entire abdominal line’s length. Patients who opt for a full abdominoplasty mostly want to address excess skin and general tummy roundness. 2. Mini Abdominoplasty This type of abdominoplasty involves fewer incisions than a full abdominoplasty and is intended to improve only the lower section of the belly. This makes the surgery perfect for individuals who want to get rid of their “pooches,” stretch marks, or tiny bulges. Dr. Bruce can tighten loose tummy muscles through an incision around the belly button (typically a low horizontal incision) and remove unwanted skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer lower tummy. 3. Extended Abdominoplasty The extended abdominoplasty is ideal when the procedure’s goals are to address the abdomen while concurrently targeting the hips and flanks. To perform this procedure, we often extend the horizontal incision sideways and include a longer, vertical incision. This makes it possible for Dr. Kadz to remove excess skin from the lower and upper abdominal area as well as the hips, all while tightening the abdominal muscles and walls. Who Should Get a Tummy Tuck? Abdominoplasty is meant to tighten the abdominal muscles and eliminate loose skin for a firmer and slimmer waistline. This surgery is highly customizable, depending on your preferred outcome. Some options, as mentioned above, include the mini tuck, full tuck, and extended abdominoplasty. Each comes with its unique advantages, all of which will be explained to you before the procedure. Cosmetic surgery like abdominoplasty is a personal decision that must be taken seriously. During an abdominoplasty consultation, Dr. Bruce will perform an assessment and determine which technique is ideal for you. It is also vital to inform us about your entire medical history, including any medications you’re currently taking. This enables us to give you realistic timelines and expectations about your results. The perfect candidates for an abdominoplasty: Are in overall good health Are in a stable weight Have realistic expectations about the procedure Have a protruding tummy Recently had a baby Have loose or hanging skin around their tummy How Abdominoplasty Surgery Is Performed On the day of the procedure, we will start by administering general anesthesia. We will then make an incision just above the pubic region. Typically, Dr. Kadz places incisions in areas that are easily hidden in swimsuits or undergarments. If you have stretched out or separated abdominal muscles, these will be reconstructed during the procedure. Liposuction might be performed for minimal amounts of stubborn fat. Any excess skin is then removed before the incisions are stitched back meticulously. Abdominoplasties are outpatient procedures and only take a couple of hours to finish. Weight Loss Before and During Abdominoplasty Whether you’re considering a full or mini abdominoplasty, we recommend that you lose weight prior to your surgery. This makes it easy for you to achieve the most dramatic tummy tightening and body transformation. Moreover, because obesity leads to increased health risks before and after the procedure, sustaining a healthy body mass index will help you ensure safe and quick healing. Patients who opt for a full abdominoplasty are more likely to have a larger mass of skin removed, and bigger people have a larger surface area. During the surgery, supplementary liposuction is usually performed along with the tummy tuck to sculpt the waistline further. You may expect to shed some weight this way, though the notable difference in the way your pants fit afterward will make you feel revived even if you don’t see a huge difference on the scale. Maintaining Your Abdominoplasty Results To ensure that you maintain your abdominoplasty results, it is imperative to follow all aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Kadz. Taking good care not to increase the intake of calories while you are recuperating will help you prevent new fat cells from showing. A healthy, well-balanced diet coupled with a regular workout is an essential key to making sure that you feel as great as you look and maintain the benefits of your surgery for a long time. It is also recommended that women wait until they are through with having kids before undergoing a tummy tuck. Future pregnancies are safe and healthy, but they can alter the results of your abdominoplasty. Everything Else You Need to Know Whether your pooch was caused by significant weight loss, a pregnancy, or genetics, tightening lax muscles and removing excess skin can provide both mental and physical benefits. If you’ve been thinking about getting an abdominoplasty but are still not sure, knowing a few more things about the procedure may help you to make a decision. You’ll Need Help Back Home for the First Few Days Most abdominoplasties are outpatient procedures, which means you’ll go home right after the surgery. For this reason, you’ll need to have someone there to help you with chores for the first few days, if not a whole week. We recommend that you don’t lift anything over 10 pounds for the first six weeks or so, which is an important consideration for women with young children. There Are Different Types of Incision Scars As mentioned earlier, your scar size and location will vary, depending on the form of abdominoplasty you need. For a traditional tuck, the scar will be from one hip to the other, and we will do our best to ensure it is covered under the bikini line. In addition, you will have a scar near your belly button. For those who need just a tiny amount of muscle tightened and skin removed, a mini-abdominoplasty can be an option. A mini-abdominoplasty is one in which there’s a very tiny amount of skin excess, typically below your belly button. The procedure leaves a scar a bit longer than a C-section scar. Patients seeking an abdominoplasty after weight loss surgery or considerable weight loss can expect a big, T-shaped upside-down scar across the abdomen. This is because there’s vertical and horizontal skin excess, which extends to the abdomen midline. Choosing the Right Surgeon Is Important Finding a certified plastic surgeon can be more daunting than you’d think. While the terms are often used interchangeably, a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon are not the same things. Likewise, a practitioner might claim to be “board-certified” by an organization that isn’t recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). This reputable body recognizes only one plastic surgery board in America–the America Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Fortunately for all patients looking for abdominoplasty services in Beverly Hills, Dr. Bruce Kadz is certified by the ABPS and always ready to help you attain the waistline of your dreams. Surgical Drains Will Be Intact for the First Week or Two After the procedure, we will put in place surgical drains to eliminate any buildup of fluid or blood. This helps to keep swelling at a minimum while ensuring full healing. Although temporary, the drains require proper attention and care. Before surgery, Dr. Kadz will discuss the importance of drains and how to care for them, including any limitations when taking a shower. In most instances, the drains are painlessly removed in just under two weeks. Expect Benefits Beyond the Physical Transformation Of course, you’ll feel a lot more confident in your clothes after an abdominoplasty, like most of our patients do. However, surgery can also offer several medical benefits. Abdominoplasty might help with urinary incontinence, and the procedure can also help improve the strength and support of your body’s core. For patients suffering from diastasis, repairing loose abdominal skin can help boost stability and reduce bloating and back pain. The Cost of an Abdominoplasty Varies As pointed out earlier, there are different types of abdominoplasties, which only means that no two procedures cost the same. The cost of this procedure in Beverly Hills is usually determined by the complexity of each patient’s surgery and physical traits. Find Out More or Get Started Today The power of an abdominoplasty is that it can help you attain your aesthetic goals and improve self-confidence, which can immensely boost your life quality. Prospective abdominoplasty patients who take to heart all the information written above can be sure to meet their health expectations, improve their results, and better their overall weight loss experience.

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. It can be used to treat a wide variety of problems, including the appearance of gynecomastia in overweight men and excess abdominal and arm fat in women who were pregnant. It’s offered at the office of Dr. Bruce Kadz in Beverly Hills, CA, and we get a lot of questions about the results of this procedure. Here’s what you need to know about losing weight with lipo. How Much Weight Can You Lose From Liposuction? You can generally expect to lose up to 10 pounds from liposuction. However, the amount of fat that can be removed safely during this procedure depends on your body mass index. If you’re already at your goal weight, we may only be able to remove one to five pounds (roughly an inch) of fat from you. On the other hand, if you are far from your ideal weight, we may be able to remove up to 11 pounds of fat from your body. Note, if you have already lost a significant amount of weight, there is a chance that you have excess skin. If you have a significant amount of excess skin, you may qualify for a body lift. For example, you may be a good candidate for upper arm lipo and an arm lift. If you qualify for a lift, we can remove excess skin, meaning you can lose even more weight safely. How Much Weight Can I Lose After Liposuction in 2023? Once your procedure is complete, you are free to lose as much weight as you want to. However, there is a limit to how quickly you should lose weight post-op. It is not advisable to lose over two pounds per week. You should also keep in mind that you should make an effort to lose no more than 1% of your body mass weekly. Therefore, if you weigh only 130 pounds, you should lose no more than roughly 1.3 pounds per week post-op. There is a good reason it is a good rule of thumb to lose no more than 1% of your body mass weekly. The faster you lose weight, the more likely you are to have loose skin when you reach your ideal weight. Note that there are other factors that affect your risk of developing loose skin if you lose weight rapidly. Among these factors are the quality of your diet, how well you care for your skin health, and your age. Can I Work Out After My Lipo Session Is Complete? Yes, it is possible to work out after your lipo session is complete. In fact, regular moderate exercise is strongly recommended during the early stages of your recovery. You shouldn’t expect to feel up to working out during the first 24 hours post-op due to the way sedation or general anesthesia affects your body. If you are administered general anesthesia, there is a good chance that you will feel unusually tired for three days after your procedure. Once you’re feeling up to it, you should get moderate exercise as often as you can. It is crucial that you do not overexert yourself, so you can’t do vigorous exercise. You also shouldn’t exercise for too long. Ideally, you should aim for 10- to 30-minute long moderate cardio sessions. If you still have quite a bit of weight to lose, it is okay to get up to 60 minutes of moderate exercise daily five days per week. Just make sure you’re getting plenty of rest, too. Can I Do Resistance Training? During the first several weeks following your fat removal procedure, you should avoid resistance training as a way to burn calories. Even if you only lift weights at a moderate intensity, you can lengthen your recovery process. We will advise you on the weight lifting restrictions you will have during your initial consultation, and you may be able to start lifting sooner if you recover quickly. As a general rule, you should refrain from lifting anything weighing 10 pounds or more during the first couple of weeks post-op. It will be approximately six to eight weeks before you can safely resume lifting heavy weights and engaging in other vigorous physical activity. What Should I Eat During My Recovery Period? Most of your diet during your recovery period should comprise high-quality protein and soluble fiber. It is particularly important to make sure you’re eating enough soluble fiber during your recovery period because you do not want to have uncomfortable constipation symptoms while you’re recovering from surgery. It is very important to eat plenty of protein during your recovery period because protein is made up of amino acids. Everyone needs to consume an adequate amount of nine essential amino acids to stay relatively healthy. If an insufficient amount of essential amino acids is consumed, your body’s ability to build things made up of protein, like muscle tissue and collagen, is impaired. To recover from your procedure as quickly as possible, it is essential that you get enough amino acids to build plenty of collagen. Collagen plays a crucial role in helping the skin heal itself. What Foods Should I Incorporate Into My Post-Op Diet? Dark green vegetables are great to incorporate into your post-op diet because they are high in protein, soluble fiber, and vitamin C. Both protein and vitamin C are key ingredients in collagen. If possible, eat dark green veggies with every meal. For example, you may have a kale smoothie and scrambled eggs with spinach for breakfast. For lunch, you may have a broccoli salad, and you may have Brussels sprouts with dinner. Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure? The only way to determine whether you are a good fit for this procedure is to attend an initial evaluation. This procedure is extremely effective in some cases, but it is not effective in every case. To ensure that you will achieve your desired results with lipo, we need to evaluate your areas of concern and verify that there is the right amount of fat in your areas of concern. If you’re considering lipo, it is important to understand that this fat removal technique is not the most effective when there is little fat in an area of concern. You also must understand that this procedure may not be able to provide you with your desired results if there is a very large amount of excess fat in an area of concern. How Does My Health Affect My Candidacy for Lipo? It is of the utmost importance that you are healthy to qualify for lipo. Most people who undergo this procedure are given general anesthesia due to its ability to put you to sleep, ensuring you’re calm, and numb your entire body, ensuring that you feel no pain or discomfort. To be a good candidate for general anesthesia, your heart and lungs must be healthy. Also, it is important that you can regulate your blood sugar effectively. Effective blood sugar regulation is important because you will need to fast for eight hours prior to the administration of the general anesthesia. Fasting is a critical preparation step because if your stomach is not empty when you are intubated, how your body reacts to the medication can be affected. Therefore, to qualify for general anesthesia, you cannot have uncontrolled diabetes. Other health factors that affect your candidacy include: Your pregnancy status A history of cancer Liver failure Renal failure Find Out Today Whether Lipo Is Right for You The amount of fat you can lose from lipo depends on your body mass. We can’t tell you how much weight you can expect to lose without evaluating your cosmetic goals, subcutaneous fat distribution, and body mass. What we can tell you is that you shouldn’t expect to lose more than 10 pounds from this procedure unless you have a lot of weight to lose before you reach your goal weight. We can also tell you that you can lose even more weight if you opt for a body lift if you have excess skin following your weight loss. If you think lipo could improve your self-confidence, we’re here for you. Contact us today at the office of Dr. Bruce Kadz in Beverly Hills, CA to schedule your initial liposuction consultation. We can’t wait to create a customized treatment plan that will help you solve all of your body contouring problems.
Elevate the allure of your eyes with blepharoplasty, commonly known as double eyelid surgery. As a leader in this field, we’re happy to delve into all of the intricacies of this procedure. Shedding light on its benefits and considerations will help you make an educated decision to improve your aesthetic appearance. What Is Blepharoplasty? Blepharoplasty, also known as upper eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. By reshaping the eyelids, it effectively addresses concerns related to aging, genetic predispositions, or other factors that affect the overall look of the eyes. The primary goals of blepharoplasty include improving the shape, symmetry, and definition of the eyes, leading to a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Many individuals opt for blepharoplasty to address common issues such as sagging or drooping eyelids, puffiness or bags under the eyes, or unevenness between the eyes. These concerns can impact one’s overall facial aesthetic, leading to a desire for a surgical solution. However, it’s crucial to choose a qualified plastic surgeon who specializes in blepharoplasty to ensure optimal results and minimize potential risks. The Procedure: Double Eyelid Surgery During the eye lift procedure, you will be under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout. Your surgeon will carefully make incisions along the predetermined crease line, skillfully removing excess skin, fat, and tissue as necessary. This meticulous process allows them to create a refined look that complements your unique facial features. The recovery time for this surgery may vary depending on the technique used. Typically, patients can expect some swelling and bruising in the days following the procedure. However, these side effects are temporary and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. It is essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions diligently to facilitate optimal healing and achieve the desired results in a timely manner. The Many Benefits of Double Eyelid Surgery Double eyelid surgery offers numerous advantages, going beyond its cosmetic enhancements. Consider the following benefits associated with this procedure: Improved Appearance: Double eyelid surgery not only enhances the shape, symmetry, and definition of the eyes, but it also contributes to a balanced facial aesthetic. By creating a natural-looking crease in the upper eyelid, the procedure can provide a more open, alert, and attractive look. Boosted Confidence: Addressing concerns such as sagging or uneven eyelids can significantly increase self-confidence and self-esteem. This surgery empowers individuals to feel more positive about their overall appearance, which can positively impact their social interactions and personal well-being. Potential Vision Improvement: In some cases, the surgery can correct vision obstructed by excess skin or drooping eyelids. This can result in improved eyesight and visual clarity, enhancing not just the aesthetic appeal but also the functional aspect of the eyes. Youthful and Refreshed Look: Patients often report feeling more youthful and refreshed after double eyelid surgery. The procedure can eliminate signs of aging such as puffy or baggy eyelids, giving a rejuvenated appearance. This refreshed look can often lead to a more positive outlook and increased energy levels. Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery? When contemplating blepharoplasty, it is crucial to assess whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Various factors can indicate that you may benefit from this surgery, including concerns such as sagging or drooping eyelids, puffiness or bags under the eyes, or noticeable asymmetry between your eyes. These issues can contribute to a less youthful and tired appearance, impacting your overall satisfaction with your facial aesthetics.

During this evaluation, your surgeon will examine your eyelids and overall facial structure, taking into account your specific concerns and goals. They will consider factors such as your medical history, current eye health, and the quality of your skin. Based on this evaluation, your surgeon will recommend the most suitable course of action for you, whether it be blepharoplasty or an alternative treatment option.

Navigating the landscape of Brazilian butt lift surgery requires expert guidance, and that’s where Kadz Plastic Surgery steps in. We can help you shed light on the crucial “fluffing” stage in the recovery process, a key to unlocking optimal results. Our mission is to equip you with valuable insights, address your primary concerns, and demonstrate our proficiency in helping you achieve your desired outcome. What Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery? Often referred to as BBL, Brazilian butt lift surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. But what is a BBL exactly? Utilizing advanced fat transfer techniques, our experienced surgeons at Kadz Plastic Surgery extract excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and meticulously graft it onto the buttocks. This intricate process results in a natural-looking, fuller appearance, customized to align with each individual’s aesthetic aspirations. The cornerstone of Brazilian butt lift surgery, also known as butt augmentation, is its ability to repurpose the patient’s own fat to augment the buttocks. By removing excess fat from other areas, we not only contour these regions but also create a more proportionate and balanced figure. The transferred fat is carefully injected into strategic areas of the buttocks, sculpting and reshaping them to achieve a beautiful and youthful contour. Navigating the Recovery Process After BBL Surgery Understanding the recovery stages, including what to expect from BBL before and after, is paramount to realizing optimal results. A pivotal element of the recovery process is the phenomenon of “fluffing,” a crucial player in the overall healing process. During this period, the body undergoes a series of physiological changes, particularly as the grafted fat settles and integrates with the existing tissue in the buttocks. “Fluffing” refers to the redistribution and proper alignment of the transferred fat, ultimately leading to a harmonious and pleasing shape. As the body heals, this process allows the fat cells to find their ideal position, ensuring a balanced appearance. It is important to note that the concept of fluffing takes time, and patience is crucial in attaining the desired results. Fluffing: An Essential Element for Optimal Results The phenomenon of fluffing holds significant importance in the successful outcome of Brazilian buttock lift surgery. Here’s why it is essential: Contouring for Balance: As the body heals post-surgery, it may experience swelling and slight asymmetry. The process of fluffing assists the fat cells in settling into their new environment, aiding in the contouring of the buttocks for a balanced and natural appearance. Even Distribution of Fat: Fluffing facilitates the redistribution of the transferred fat, ensuring its even distribution throughout the treated area. This contributes to a harmonious filling of the buttocks, creating an aesthetically pleasing shape and enhancing the overall result. Time and Patience: The process of fluffing is not instantaneous; it takes time. Patience is key as the body adjusts and the fat cells find their new position. Diligently following post-operative instructions and allowing the healing process to progress are crucial to achieving the best results. The role of fluffing in gluteal augmentation surgery is significant. By aiding in the contouring of the buttocks, ensuring even fat distribution, and requiring time and patience, it plays a vital role in the successful outcome of the procedure. Adherence to post-operative instructions will support the recovery process and contribute to achieving the best possible results. Frequently Asked Questions About Fluffing and Brazilian Butt Lift We understand that you may have concerns and misconceptions regarding the fluffing process and Brazilian butt lift surgery. Let us address some common questions to provide clarity and peace of mind: How long does the fluffing process take? The fluffing process is a gradual one that typically spans several weeks or months following Brazilian butt lift surgery. As the body heals and adapts to the transferred fat, the process progresses, allowing the fat cells to settle into their new environment. It’s important to allow yourself time and exercise patience with the healing process, as the duration may vary for each individual. What should I expect during the fluffing process? During the fluffing process, it’s completely normal to notice changes in shape and size as the fat settles in the buttocks. As the body heals, the transferred fat integrates with the existing tissue, gradually leading to a harmonious and natural shape. While these changes may initially cause temporary variations in the appearance of your buttocks, they are part of the overall healing process and contribute to the final outcome. What can I do to support the fluffing process? Supporting the fluffing process involves adhering to the post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon. This may include guidelines on physical activity, diet, and care for the surgical area. Maintaining regular follow-up meetings with your surgeon is essential for tracking your progress and quickly addressing any issues.
