Do You Need A Tummy Tuck or Body Lift?

Tummy Tucks & Body Lifts in the Bay AreaRegular exercise and a healthy diet can pay great dividends. However, crafting your dream body takes more than just hard work and dedication. It is impossible to tighten excess loose skin and nearly impossible to eliminate certain troublesome pockets of fat through lifestyle habits alone.

If diet and exercise don’t quite cut it, you may want to consider a tummy tuck or body lift. A tummy tuck is perfect for getting rid of extra fat and skin in the abdominal area. A body lift improves the appearance of the abdominal area, buttocks and thighs by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying tissues.

Below, Dr. Ereso of the Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center discusses how these procedures can help your dream body come to life. Continue reading “Do You Need A Tummy Tuck or Body Lift?”

Eliminating the Stubborn “Bra Bulge” and Back Fat

Removing the Bra Bulge and Back Fat at Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery

Nearly everyone has an area of fat that simply will not respond to diet or exercise efforts. For some women, it is a noticeable “bra bulge,” or unwanted fat between the armpit and bra. The bra bulge may be especially embarrassing when wearing sleeveless or strapless tops, dresses or bathing suits.

This is a particularly obscure area of the body to spot-tone, and most women find it nearly impossible to diet or exercise the fat away.

Luckily with the help of the team at Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center, bra bulge can be a distant memory. Continue reading “Eliminating the Stubborn “Bra Bulge” and Back Fat”

What’s the Best Way to Get Rid of Unwanted Fat?

Perhaps you’re genetically predisposed to carrying weight in your thighs or hips; or maybe you’ve noticed with age that you’re putting on weight in those areas. If diet and exercise efforts won’t help to slim these bothersome areas of excess fat, Dr. Alexander Ereso of Pearl-Ereso Plastic Surgery Center can help. Here, they explain some of the treatment options that are available at our Bay Area plastic surgery practice

Liposuction for Unwanted Body Fat

Liposuction is the most popular procedure to reduce areas of diet- and exercise-resistant body fat. It can safely and effectively slim the abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, arms and many other areas of the body.

During a liposuction procedure in the Bay Area, Dr. Ereso will create small incisions in the targeted area and insert a thin, hollow tube called a cannula. The plastic surgeon moves the cannula through the fat to break it up, and then applies suction to remove the fat from the body. Once the fat has been removed, it won’t return. The result is a slimmer, more sculpted body contour.

Kybella for Unwanted Fat Under the Chin

Unwanted fat under the chin is a common problem, and one that we can treat non-invasively. Dr. Ereso offers Kybella, an injectable product that breaks up unwanted fat under the chin without surgery, incisions or anesthesia. Small amounts of Kybella are injected under the chin and the active ingredient destroys the fat, which is later filtered from the body. Removing selective fat under the chin and along the jawline with Kybella can make the entire face look slimmer and more defined.

Lift Procedures for Unwanted Fat and Loose Skin

Sometimes Dr. Ereso sees patients that are bothered by a combination of excess fat and loose, saggy skin. Often these patients have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, but their smaller physique is concealed beneath loose folds of skin and localized fat pockets.

Body lift procedures are a good option because they simultaneously treat the fat and skin. Lower body lift is the most comprehensive of these procedures, and targets the lower torso, thighs and buttocks. Thigh lift isolates and treats excess fat and skin on the upper thighs, and arm lift treats the upper arms. Our plastic surgeons in the Bay Area can recommend the most suitable treatment option after examining your area(s) of concern and learning more about your specific goals.

Introducing the Liposuction S.A.F.E. Technique

Are you frustrated because you consistently make healthy diet and exercise decisions, yet you aren’t seeing the fat reduction results you desire?

Unfortunately, some problem areas of the body simply won’t respond to lifestyle efforts. It might be time to explore a surgical alternative with liposuction. Traditional liposuction is generally a safe procedure, but it has its limitations. Dr. Ereso has discovered an advanced liposuction system that improves upon traditional liposuction and provides smoother, more natural-looking body contouring results. Dr. Ereso is pleased to offer SAFELipo to his Mountain View liposuction patients.

More about SAFELipo

S.A.F.E. Liposuction is a technique developed by Dr. Simeon Wall from Shreveport, La., and has truly improved Dr. Ereso’s results. S.A.F.E. stands for Separation, Aspiration and Fatty Equilibration!

SAFELipo can be used to remove excess fat around the thighs, knees, waist, upper arms and neck. It can also be combined with another body contouring procedure, such as abdominoplasty or breast enhancement surgery.

Treatment Steps

First, Dr. Ereso will use special power-assisted liposuction probes to carefully loosen the targeted fat and separate the cells from each other and the supporting framework, without damaging the delicate surrounding structures. No suctioning is used during this portion of the procedure and no fat is removed. SAFELipo does not use thermal energy, which means that there is no risk of any heat damage.

Then, Dr. Ereso will use gentle suction to remove the fat cells from the body. Because the targeted fat has already been separated from the surrounding structures in the previous stage, Dr. Ereso is usually able to remove the fat with less effort. The approach is less traumatic than traditional liposuction and reduces post-operative bruising, swelling and internal scarring.

The final, crucial step of the SAFELipo procedure is what differentiates it from other liposuction approaches. Dr. Ereso will treat the remaining thin layer of subcutaneous fat that remains in the body and is essential for smooth, natural-looking results. He will use special probes to equalize this fat, therefore preventing the skin from adhering to the underlying muscle layer. This helps to prevent contour irregularities (e.g., lumps, divots, “wavy” skin) that can compromise the cosmetic effects of traditional liposuction treatment.

Fat Grafting for Buttock Augmentation

Full breasts and toned tummies have always been attention-grabbing body parts, but in the past few years, another area of the body has garnered plenty of attention: the buttocks.

If you desire a shapely buttocks, but were not born with a lot of natural volume in your backside, there is a procedure designed specifically for your needs – and it offers some incredible benefits!

The Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat grafting, a technique that involves transplanting surplus fat from another area of the body (e.g., thighs, abdomen) and injecting it into the buttocks to add shape and volume.

Brazilian Butt Lift is quickly growing in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the procedure saw a 16 percent increase last year. What’s more: the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery claims it is the fastest-growing procedure in the country. This year’s statistics will almost certainly show the trend continuing.

Brazilian Butt Lift is available at the Mountain View plastic surgery practice of Dr. Ereso. Dr. Ereso is always on the lookout for the latest, greatest and safest procedures and techniques, and is happy to incorporate the revolutionary butt lift procedure into his repertoire.

More about the Procedure

Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-part procedure. First, Dr. Ereso uses liposuction techniques to remove excess unwanted fat from the donor area of the body. This could be the abdomen, hips, lower back or thighs. Then, he purifies the fat and prepares it for re-injection. Finally, he injects the fat into the buttocks, with a focus on enhancing the upper quadrant of the behind to give it a “lifted” appearance. A multiple pass technique is used injecting small amounts of fat with each pass of the syringe into the soft tissues of the buttock. This increases the “take” or the survival of the fat injected.

If you are very thin and do not have enough donor fat to use, Dr. Ereso may advise you to gain weight. Or, he may explore your alternatives to fat injections.

Why You Will Love the Brazilian Butt Lift

There are several advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift over traditional buttock augmentation with an artificial implant. First, since the BBL uses your own fat, there is reduced risk of infection or adverse reaction. (With traditional buttock augmentation, placing a foreign implant device can run the risk of complications.)

Another advantage to using your own fat? It produces a much more natural result, which is important to many of Dr. Ereso’s patients who want to avoid an over-exaggerated or “cartoonish” look.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of Brazilian Butt Lift is that the donor area of the body receives liposuction to look slimmer. By redistributing the fat, Dr. Ereso simultaneously enhances the shape of the buttocks, hips and thighs. Suctioning the fatty tissues of the lower back, flanks and the superior most part of the buttocks with special attention to detail, is essential to obtain the best appearance and provide a comprehensive body sculpting result!
