The Ideal Seasons for Breast Aesthetic Surgeries and Aesthetic Surgery in Antalya

The Ideal Seasons for Breast Aesthetic Surgeries and Aesthetic Surgery in Antalya Breast aesthetic surgeries can be performed in different seasons depending on personal preferences and climatic conditions. In general, plastic surgery can be performed safely in all seasons. However, autumn and winter are among the preferred periods, especially for those living in regions with a warm climate, such as Antalya. Why Autumn and Winter? Since the weather is cooler in autumn and winter, patients’ post-operative comfort increases. Since the use of a corset bra is recommended after breast enlargement, breast reduction and lift surgeries, using a corset in hot weather may be difficult for patients. In the summer months, patients may have difficulty complying with post-operative restrictions because they are generally more active. Breast Aesthetic Requests in Antalya Individuals living in hot regions such as Antalya generally increase their demand for surgery in the autumn and winter months. During this period, weather conditions allow patients to have a more comfortable recovery process. Infection Risk and Controls After breast aesthetic surgeries, regular follow-up and checks should be provided by an experienced and reliable team to minimize the risk of infection for patients. This is important to optimize the post-operative recovery process. Although autumn and winter months are preferred in hot climate regions such as Antalya, breast aesthetic surgeries can be performed safely in other seasons as well.   Individuals who will undergo breast aesthetic surgery should exercise caution during the postoperative recovery period and act in accordance with the recommendations of experts.

Wound of Sun Rays

Wound of Sun Rays What are the negative effects of sun rays on the wound site? The negative effects of sun rays on scarring are:   – Darkening of the scar – Swelling of the scar – Itching of the scar – Enlargement of the scar – Hardening of the scar – Infection of the scar   These negative effects on the scar can also negatively affect the healing process of the scar. When the scar is exposed to sunlight, collagen production in the skin decreases. Collagen is a protein that provides skin elasticity. Decreased collagen production causes the scar to bulge and harden more.   In order to reduce the negative effects of sun rays on the scar, it is necessary to protect the scarred area from the sun. To protect the scarred area from the sun, it is necessary to use sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. In addition, it is necessary to keep the scarred area away from the sun as much as possible.   To protect the scarred area from the sun, the following precautions should be taken:   Use sunscreen. Sunscreen protects the skin from UVB and UVA rays. Sunscreen should be at least SPF 30 and should be renewed throughout the day.   Wear a hat. The hat provides skin protection from UVB rays from the sun. The hat should be wide-brimmed and cover the face, ears and neck.   Use sunglasses. Sunglasses protect the eyes from UVB and UVA rays from the sun. Sunglasses should filter UVA and UVB rays.   Keep the scarred area away from the sun as much as possible. Keep the scarred area out of the sun, especially at noon, when the sun is strongest.   Op.

Aesthetic Filling Applications

Aesthetic Filling Applications Why You have to choose High-Quality Fillers? Fillers are one of the most common cosmetic procedures, as common as Botilinum toxin injections. It is important to choose high-quality fillers to ensure the safety, efficacy, and natural appearance of the procedure   Low-quality fillers may contain harmful ingredients that can cause side effects such as allergic reactions, inflammation, and even infection. These side effects can be serious and even life-threatening. High-quality fillers are made with safe and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved ingredients, which helps to reduce the risk of complications.   In addition to safety, it is also important to consider the effectiveness of the filler. High- quality fillers are more likely to provide long-lasting results. Low-quality fillers may break down or dissolve more quickly, which can require more frequent injections. This can be costly and inconvenient. High-quality fillers can last for several months to years, which can save you time and money in the long run.   Finally, it is important to consider the natural appearance of the filler. High-quality fillers are more likely to look natural and compatible with the surrounding tissue. Low-quality fillers may appear lumpy or stiff, which can be noticeable. This can be embarrassing and even lead to social anxiety. High-quality fillers are designed to look as natural as possible, so you can be confident that your results will be subtle and elegant.   If you are considering getting a filler procedure, it is important to talk to your doctor about the different types of fillers available and to choose a proper Aesthetic surgeon or Dermatolog who uses high-quality fillers. When choosing a filler, it is important to do your research and ask questions. This will help you to make an informed decision and ensure that you choose a filler that is safe, effective, and natural-looking.   We prefer to use products approved by the Ministry of Health and CE certified in our own clinic. We inform the patient before the application and share the product certificate with the patient after the application.   Op. Dr. Feridun ElmasPlastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

After Liposuction Surgery

After Liposuction Surgery Liposuction is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape the body by removing subcutaneous fat tissue using specialized devices. There are a number of rules that patients need to follow after this surgery, and a portion of these rules constitutes the post-liposuction diet program. In this article, I will explain what to consider in terms of nutrition after liposuction surgery, both immediately after the procedure and in the long term. The First Rule: Avoid Weight Gain! First and foremost, patients need to understand the following technical information: the number of fat cells in the body remains constant, and liposuction only removes a portion of these cells from specific areas. Therefore, if you continue to gain weight after the surgery, the fat that should have accumulated in your body will instead accumulate in other areas where liposuction was not performed, potentially increasing their volume and causing an undesirable appearance. Hence, it is crucial to maintain your shape for extended periods. What should be done immediately after the surgery? Water is the most important factor in maintaining a balanced body and regulating metabolism. Therefore, you should not neglect water intake. By replacing the lost water from the surgery, you will keep your circulatory and excretory systems active and in good condition. Regular and balanced nutrition is essential. Therefore, avoid consuming carbonated, fatty, and excessively salty foods that may cause discomfort such as indigestion, constipation, and bloating. Opt for lean proteins like chicken, fish, and legumes. Consuming fruits, vegetables, and fiber-rich grains is an ideal option to prevent post-operative constipation. If there is blood loss or weakness due to liposuction, consuming red meat is an ideal choice to replenish iron in the body. It is crucial to abstain from smoking and alcohol use. Smoking alone significantly hampers the healing process. Additionally, it reduces lung capacity and prolongs the time it takes for you to return to normal life. Alcohol can increase bleeding immediately after surgery, thus increasing the risk of post-operative complications. You can consume foods that help reduce swelling after the surgery. Plants such as pineapple and green tea are ideal for reducing edema. You can drink herbal teas made from these plants or consume pineapple fruit or specific medications available for reducing edema. However, during this stage, it is important to be cautious about excessive vitamin intake, uncontrolled consumption of herbal teas, or certain herbal teas that may cause complications such as bleeding. Therefore, it is necessary to consult with a doctor before using such products. Once the recovery is complete, what comes next? Now, you have a new body with new contours, and you stand at a crossroads. The choice is yours. If you gain weight, you may become more unhappy and require further surgeries. It is in your hands to maintain your shape. You should change your lifestyle and transition to a regular and healthy diet. Avoid salty and fatty foods, as well as substances like alcohol and cigarettes that have negative effects on your life. Exercise is essential for achieving a better shape. I recommend starting with cardio exercises during the recovery period and gradually transitioning to a fitness-oriented routine that focuses on increasing muscle mass. However, be careful! If you have any conditions that prevent you from starting exercise, you must inform your doctor and trainer, and create a program accordingly. Op.

What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty? Ethnic rhinoplasty is a type of rhinoplasty that requires experience and expertise for various problems that the person has depending on the race. In these surgeries, the medical approach differs according to the needs of the person. It is much more difficult surgery than other nose surgeries. A better facial profile is obtained without changing the ethnicity of the person.   What are the conditions that make Ethnic Rhinoplasty Surgery more difficult than other nose surgeries?According to the ethnic race of the person, there are different problems both functionally and aesthetically. For example, the tip of the nose is flatter and wider in individuals of African-American descent.   Nose tip support has decreased. Or, in Asian individuals, the bone, cartilage structure and/or nasal tip called the nasal dorsum are flattened and heightened. In order to correct these problems, support tissues such as the ear or rib cartilage of the person are often needed. Although it is rarely used in our country, sometimes special implants designed for these conditions can be placed in the nose. However, the infection rate of these implants is high. What are the aesthetic benefits of these surgeries? With these surgeries, the profile is designed according to the facial proportions without changing the ethnic structure of the person. For example, the nose tip can be made higher and the base of the nose narrower in an individual whose nose is flattened and the tip support is lost. In patients with a very raised nose tip and a very short nose length, the nose can be extended and nasal rotation can be normalized.   Can these surgeries be combined with other surgeries? Yes, these surgeries can be combined with other facial aesthetic surgeries. In fact, one of the main advantages of the plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery branch is that it can bring a holistic approach to the whole face due to the knowledge and experience of other aesthetic procedures.   For example; If the patient needs a more prominent appearance on the chin, cheek or forehead, extra procedures such as chin prosthesis or fat injections can be performed. Again, operations such as eyelid, temple lift, face lift can be combined with these operations.   Op. Dr. Feridun ElmasPlastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

Oi̇l Removal (Liposucti̇on) Surgery

Oi̇l Removal (Liposucti̇on) Surgery Known faults about oil removal (liposuction) surgery.   Liposuction, that is, surgical fat removal, is the operation of shaping these areas by removing the fat in certain parts of the body with the help of certain devices. Today, with the increase in demand for plastic surgeries, it is seen that the rate of individuals wanting results beyond their expectations has increased. With the fat removal process, people think that only fat removal will eliminate their weight, sagging, etc. problems.   First of all, liposuction surgery is a shaping operation. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a surgery performed to lose weight. In liposuction surgeries, the maximum amount of fat that can be taken according to the physical condition of the patient is limited. Exceeding these limits increases the rate of negative situations that may occur during and after the operation. These surgeries are not suitable for overweight patients and are ideal for areas where adipose tissue accumulation does not decrease despite weight loss after sports or diet. Thus, a suitable shape is given to the body of the person.   Liposuction surgery is also not an alternative to stretching surgeries that have sagging skin and require removal of the skin and tightening of the underlying structures. For example, performing liposuction on a patient who needs a tummy tuck may not improve the situation, but may make it worse. For this reason, although stretching surgeries can be combined with liposuction surgeries, it may not be sufficient for a solution alone.   Even if regional thinning is achieved after this surgery, if the person does not pay attention to his form and continues to gain weight, the number of fat cells in the area where the fat is removed will decrease, so the fat that needs to be accumulated will accumulate in other parts of the body where liposuction is not performed and may cause the person’s appearance to look worse. Therefore, the person needs to maintain their form after this surgery.   Finally, the opinion that cellulite, especially on the legs, can only be removed by liposuction is one of the known mistakes. Cellulite is a connective tissue disorder that occurs in the subcutaneous tissues. In the correction of this situation, surgical separation of subcutaneous adhesions with micro scissors or device-based methods such as vacuum, laser, and vaser can be used. However, liposuction alone is not a treatment alternative to correct this situation   Op. Dr. Feridun ElmasPlastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery
