VASER LIPOSUCTION|DUBAI

VASER LIPOSUCTION AT LCAS GULF, DUBAI

vaser liposuction

Q:  I’m fit and healthy and I go to the gym regularly. I eat a good diet but no matter what I did I simply couldn’t get rid of my love handles or a thickness on my thighs. What is the alternative way to remove fat effectively besides diet and exercise? – VASER Liposuction

 

VASER liposuction is one of the most effective ways to remove stubborn fat and to reshape your body. VASER liposuction is an advanced body contouring that selectively removes unwanted body fat that will not respond to diet and exercise.

An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASER liposuction uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently remove the fat from abdomen, thighs, love handles, back, arms and chin. What distinguishes the VASER liposuction procedure is its ability to differentiate fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

VASER liposuction is performed by our Italian twin plastic surgeons, Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel at our Dubai Healthcare City clinic or Harley Street, London clinic in the UK. The twin surgeons have over 20 years of experience in the field of cosmetic surgery and among the first who introduced revolutionary procedures such as VASER liposuction, fat grafting and Bodytite liposuction to name a few.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION ON BREAST AUGMENTATION

breast augmentation

 

Dr Maurizio Viel answers the frequently asked questions on breast augmentation procedure

 

Q: What is capsular contracture?

 A: This is the most common complication with breast implants (although implants with a textured silicone shell have a lower incidence). The body’s natural reaction to any implanted foreign material is to build up scar tissue around it. Scar tissue then shrinks and this shrinkage (known as capsular contracture) can sometimes be noticed as a hardening of the breast. The degree of contracture can vary from person to person, and even from breast to breast. About one in ten women suffer this, and if it happens the implant has to be removed and, if appropriate, replaced with another implant.

Q: Will my new breasts look and feel like ‘normal’ breasts?

 A: Although for most women the implant will feel much like a normal breast, it may be impossible to produce a natural cleavage. Implants may not drop to the side when you lie down and the breast may feel firmer than normal breast tissue. Creasing, kinking, rippling and folds are possible, particularly in women with very little natural breast tissue.

 

Q: I’ve heard I could lose sensations in my nipples. Is this true?

 A: About one in seven women report a loss of, or diminished, nipple sensation. On the other hand, some women report nipple sensation is increased for between three to six months following surgery, and this may be uncomfortable.

 

Q: Will my breast explode if I fly in an airplane?

 A: No, it’s a myth. Breasts implants are neither strained nor prone to rupture when flying.

 

Q: Will I be able to breast-feed if I have implants?

 A: Yes, implants interfere with the ability to breastfeed although there are some evidence that you might produce slightly less milk. If you have breastfeed a baby within the year before your surgery, you may produce milk for a few days following surgery. This may cause some discomfort, but can be treated with medicine.

Q: Will having implants increase my risk of breast cancer?

 A: No.in fact, the risk may be less (or, at least, the likelihood of a good outcome is better as your breasts will be more carefully monitored and any abnormalities picked up very early). There is no difference between the rate of breast cancer developing or the risk of its recurrence or in survival rates between women with implants and those without.

Q: Will implants interfere with a mammography?

 A: It’s possible. You should always tell your radiographer that you have implants so they can pick an appropriate method of screening. Be sure to go to a radiology centre where the technicians are experienced in the special techniques required to obtain reliable X-ray of a breast with an implant. Ultrasound examinations may be of benefit in some women with implants to detect breast lumps or to evaluate the implant.

 

Q: Do I still need to check my breast if I have implants?

 A: Absolutely. Get to now what is normal for your new breasts and check for changes on a regular basis.

 

FAT INJECTION TO HANDS | DELAY THE SIGNS OF AGEING USING YOUR OWN FAT

FAT INJECTION TO HANDS | LCAS Dubai

 

 

fat injection to hands

They say your hands will always tell your age. As we grow older, the skin on our hands becomes thinner, causing veins to become more prominent and wrinkles starts to appear. While make up can help hide the signs of ageing, it is more difficult to hide our hands, which is why the hands are often the indicators of our age.

 What is the most effective solution for the ageing hands? – Answer : Fat injection to hands.

At the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery, Dr Roberto and Maurizio Viel performs fat injection to hands. The Italian twin brothers have 25 years of experience in the field of cosmetic industry and the pioneers of the revolutionary procedure fat grafting to hands or fat injection to hands.

Your fat injection to hands is performed at Dubai Healthcare City clinic or in Harley Street London clinic. Your surgeons Dr Roberto or Maurizio will collect the fat through liposuction from the donor area like abdomen or thighs. The collected fat will then be re-injected to the hands. The procedure will take 1 to 1.5 hour.

The fat injection to hands is a day case surgery and you can go home the same day as your operation. Not all fat that is collected will be used during your first procedure, after 1 month, a top up maybe performed.

Cosmetic Eye Surgery: Lower Blepharoplasty at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf Dubai

Tired of having puffy eyes? Cosmetic Eye surgery: Lower Blepharoplasty with Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel

 

 

lower blepharoplasty at lcas

We have tried so many eye creams and home remedies just to get rid of puffy eyes or “eyebags” .These can help alleviate or improve the appearance of under eye bags but there are some persistent and bothersome eyebags and putting make-up and concealer to hide the puffiness is time consuming. We all want a quick fix to lift and freshen our eyes.

 

Major causes of “under eyebags”

  1. Normal ageing – as we age, our skin losses elasticity and the skin around the eyes may swell or droop.
  2. Sleep deprivation/Oversleeping – Interrupted sleeping cycles are common causes of eye puffiness.
  3. Fluid retention – Anything that causes fluid retention, such as pregnancy and hormonal variations with menstruation can increase puffiness around the eyes.
  4. Smoking and drinking alcoholic drinks – Alcoholic drinks and tobacco contain toxins that may lead to stress, fatigue, and hormonal changes; all of which may lead to fluid retention and swelling around the eyes.
  5. Allergies – Allergic reactions can lead to leaks in the subcutaneous capillary beds which can cause swelling in the face, including around the eyes

 

We can’t avoid these causes because not all of us can achieve a perfect healthy lifestyle. If we have under eyebags, eye creams and other treatment is not enough as it may only improve the appearance of the under eyebags. The only option we have is to remove it surgically. Lower Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic eye surgery that can remove under eyebags by a plastic surgeon.

London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, Dubai, offers a cosmetic eye surgery/blepharoplasty that can remove the under eyebags surgically. Lower Blepharoplasty can refresh a tired or weary appearance by correcting drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. . Lower Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift. Read more…

If you have any further questions or queries about this procedure, please feel free to call and speak to either Dr Roberto Viel, Dr Maurizio Viel in our London and Dubai clinics. Please note that it is necessary to attend a consultation prior to your operation, this is also the case with existing patients, it may also be necessary to have repeat blood tests.

FAT INJECTION TO FACE: USING YOUR OWN FAT TO FIGHT AGEING

FAT INJECTION TO FACE AT LONDON CENTRE FOR AESTHETIC SURGERY

fat injection to face

Fat is usually something we want to get rid of as quickly as possible, but could it be put to good use in delaying the signs of ageing?

As we get older, we start to lose fat from our upper face. This loss of fat causes loose skin and usually starts to show in the cheek area, giving us a more tired and older look.

By placing fat in the upper third of our face, the procedure will result to an uplift effect, reshaping the face to look more youthful.

Fat injection to face or “autologous fat (one’s own fat) is today’s number one natural filling agent for loss of volume and increases on our faces. As we age, the appearance of these creases is inevitable, as part of the ageing process. But although there is nothing we can do to stop it, we can fill out creases with fat, thus making them decrease or appear less prominent by fat injection to face procedure.

The fat injection to face involves liposuction to your abdomen or thigh area. The collected fat will be re-injected to your face by your plastic surgeon. The procedure will take 1 hour to 1.5 hour and it will be carried out under sedation. Not all fat that is collected will be use during your first treatment. The remaining fat will be stored and kept frozen for two years, so you can come back for a 20-minute top up procedure under local anaesthesia.

Your fat injection to face procedure will take place at our Dubai Healthcare City clinic or in Harley Street London, UK. It is a day case surgery and does not require an overnight stay at the hospital.

Facts you might want to know about VASERliposuction

VASERliposuction at LCAS with Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel

VASERliposuction

 

How much fat can be removed by VASERliposuction?

–       There are limits. A certain amount of body fat is vital for good health. Also, the deepest layers of fat (those surrounding and protecting your vital organs) cannot be taken safely. Plastic surgeons Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel will advise you on how much fat it is safe to remove.

 

Does VASERliposuction take away the entire fat cell – or just the fat in it?

–       It takes away the entire cell. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat will remain untreated in any area.

Can the fat grow back after VASERliposuction?

 –       Once you have fat removed, it’s gone and, assuming you keep up a healthy lifestyle or proper diet and exercise, it won’t return or migrate to other areas. However, if you do again a lot of weight, the remaining fat cells will expand and you will look fatter.

 

Is VASERliposuction a weight loss solution?

–       Sadly not. No form of liposuction is a real loss solution. If you have a lot of weight to lose, the best solution is a combination of sensible diet and exercise.

 

Will VASERliposuction sort out cellulite?

– Sorry, but it’s very unlikely. You may notice an improvement in the appearance of your cellulite, but it’s unrealistic to expect any form of liposuction to eliminate or “fix” cellulite.

BREAST AUGMENTATION – At LCAS Gulf Dubai with Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel

Breast Augmentation – enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts using implants.

breast augmentation

 There are many reasons women choose breast augmentation.

Some of them include:

  • Enlarging their breasts to make their bodies more proportional.
  • Reshaping and enlarging breasts that have lost their shape due to breast-feeding/pregnancy.
  • Balancing breasts that differ in size or shape.

 

 Whether it is for medical reason or for confidence, more and more women in Dubai are confident to do breast  breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is offered at both the Harley Street, London clinic and Dubai Healthcare City clinic. Plastic surgeons, Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel have experience of breast augmentation surgery for over twenty years.

Your breast augmentation surgery is performed in London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf clinic in Dubai Healthcare City. It is a day case surgery so you can go home the same day as your surgery. The procedure will take one to two hours.

The incision is about 5 cm long. Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel put the incision close to infra-mammary fold (crease of skin beneath the breast). This allows good access to correctly position the breast implant whilst placing the scar in an area that usually heals well and is not obviously seen.

Losing weight but saggy skin? TiteFx and Bodytite liposuction at LCAS Gulf Dubai

Introducing the new TiteFx and Bodytite liposuction at LCAS Gulf Dubai

LCAS bodytite photo

 

 

 

One of the big problems after losing weight is a saggy skin especially in abdomen, flanks, arms and thighs. It is not bad to lose a few pounds but losing weight quickly can result with loose skin and can be a real big headache. This loose skin is not enough for a tummy tuck (which is the removal of excess skin) but is still unsightly.  There are no creams, drugs, chemicals, herbals, etc. that can make skin shrink or tightened.

At London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, Dubai UAE, twin plastic surgeons, Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel introduce the latest machine, Bodytite, using radio frequency energy that can help to alleviate the skin’s sagginess. It has two applications, the non-invasive treatment TiteFx and the invasive treatment Liposuction by Bodytite.

Titefx, non-surgical treatment

For those who are afraid of undergoing surgical treatments the Titefx could be a solution.  This treatment is suitable for patients who have small specific stubborn fat areas that need contouring and reshaping.  It is a very safe, effective and gentle non-invasive procedure for body contouring and skin tightening. The TiteFx uses radio-frequency heating with precise skin temperature control for skin tightening and “shrinking” effect.  TiteFx has three major benefits:

  • Body contouring
  • Circumference reduction
  • Skin tightening

TiteFx requires time and patience. The treatment once a week, for up to 6 – 8 weeks depending on the indications. Each session may last from 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the areas treated. During the session, you will feel a nice warm sensation. You may have a slight redness that will subside in a couple of hours after your treatment. A course of six sessions (plus 2 free sessions) is offered at our Dubai Healthcare City clinic. Continue reading….

2. Liposuction by Bodytite

The second alternative to fat reduction and skin tightening treatment is liposuction by Bodytite at LCAS based in Dubai Healthcare City. It is one of the latest technology that uses RFAL (Radio-frequency Assisted Liposuction) that gently and precisely removes fat from abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, knees, neck, chin and at the same time has “shrinking” effect to the skin.

The Liposuction by Bodytite is a surgical procedure that requires 2 – 3 days recovery.  Liposuction by Bodytite and TiteFx is only offered in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic .Continue reading…

 It is import to understand that both Titefx and Bodytite liposuction are not a weight loss solution treatment. If your aim is to also shed-off big amount of unwanted fats, it is essential that you observe healthy lifestyle – balance diet and regular exercise. To know which treatment is best for you, it is required to see our plastic surgeons, based in LCAS Gulf Dubai and LCAS Harley St., London Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel.

The Ten Vital Questions To Ask To Your Plastic Surgeon DUBAI/LONDON

plastic surgery

Before you book your consultation and trust your face and body to a plastic surgeon in Dubai, London or any where in the world you should research your plastic surgeon, how long they have been practicing cosmetic surgery, what training they have undergone, their credentials, etc.,But before you meet your surgeon, you need to know what are the important questions to ask during your consultation.

    1. Am I good candidate for this procedure? There are many factors that can affect the result you will      get from surgery, including your skin type and how elastic it is; your bone structure; your general health and fitness; whether you have had previous surgery in that area; your age. It’s vital to understand the limitations of any surgical procedure.

    2. Is this the best procedure for the effect I want? Although you may know which procedure you want (maybe because you know someone who has had it, or seen before and after pictures of it in a magazine) it may not be the best choice for your skin. Your surgeon should give you options, including what they think would be the most effective choice.

   3. Can you achieve effect I want? If you explain precisely what you are looking for, your surgeon should be able to tell you if this is realistic or not. This is a vital step and you and your surgeon need to be able to agree on what can, and can’t be done.

   4. What will happen before, during and after the procedure? You need to feel comfortable with all the steps of the procedure.

  5. What are the risk and complications associated with tis procedure? How often have you seen them and what do you do to minimise them? It’s important that you should not sign any medical waiver that you don’t understand.

  6. How long will it take to see results? How long will my recovery take and what should I expect while it is happening? Remember that many procedures are major surgery and can entail long recovery periods. Often you may look worse before you look better  – you may need patience.

  7. Can I see before and after photos of recent patients who have undergone the same procedure I’m seeking? Can I talk to someone who’s recently had the procedure? Of course, a clinic isn’t likely to give you details of someone who was miserable with their result, but you will get some honest ‘how it felt and how I feel about the results’ feedback. It’s also good to talk to someone who has actually experienced the procedure, as opposed to someone who performs it.

  8. What should I do to prepare for this surgery? Are there lifestyle changes I need to make?

 9. Do you have hospital privileges? If something goes wrong, will I automatically be transferred to a hospital where you can practice?

 10. What happens if the results are not what we agreed upon? Will you undertake to redo my surgery? Will follow-up procedure cost me more?

Dr Roberto Viel answers the frequent questions about Abdominoplasty and VASER Liposuction

Dr Roberto Viel, plastic surgeon at the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery London & Dubai, takes time out to answer some of your plastic surgery questions.

 

Q:  I lost a lot of weight around my belly after pregnancy and now my skin is saggy, is there anything out there to help?

A: Pregnancy causes the stretching of the abdominal muscles and skin, and in some cases the elasticity is lost creating sagging skin.  A mini-tummy tuck or a full tummy tuck may be recommended to resolve the skin sagging.  A mini tummy tuck will involve an incision below the bikini line, and the excess skin is removed.  Alternatively, if there is too much skin and weak abdominal muscles a full abdominalplasty surgery may be advised.  This involves the cutting of the excess skin, as well as the tightening of the abdominal wall muscles with a permanent scar from one hip to the other hip, and in some cases the repositioning of the belly button.

Q: I’d like to get liposuction, but I’m afraid of the procedure, is there anything out there that’s less invasive but efficient?

A: Many have tried diet and exercise and non-invasive machines with little or no permanent results for target weight loss areas such as the ‘muffin top area’ and ‘saddlebags’.  Liposuction still remains one of the most effective methods to contour the body especially for stubborn areas such as the outer, inner thighs, abdomen and back.  Even when we diet and exercise, we cannot guarantee that the fat will be lost from the areas that we want to lose them from.  After 30, the body will usually extract fat from the face and the breasts first rather than the lower half of the body.  For liposuction, the VASER liposuction technique is safe, effective and an accurate for fat removal with a quicker recovery time and less bruising compared to traditional methods but make sure you visit an experienced surgeon.
