Undergoing a Cosmetic Procedure in Kansas City: How Long Does Plastic Surgery Last?
When you undergo a cosmetic procedure at our Kansas City office, expect to achieve some incredible results. One of the benefits of plastic surgery is that all of the procedures we perform deliver long-lasting results.
In some cases, results are permanent, and the only factor that keeps your results from being permanent is typically the aging process since it cannot be stopped. However, the right procedure and the right treatment plan can help you enjoy your procedure results for many, many years.
Our Surgical Procedures
At Aesthetic Surgical Arts, we are in the business of plastic surgery, but we are also in the business of increasing our patient’s confidence. We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help men and women alike look and feel their best. If you’ve been struggling with a bodily imperfection, choosing to address that aesthetic concern is not vanity. Choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery is an investment in your self-image, your confidence, and your appearance.
Increased confidence is priceless, and that’s what we want to give each of our patients. All of the procedures we offer at our office deliver long-lasting results. Some will deliver permanent results; others you will be able to enjoy for 10 to 15 years or longer. It completely depends on the type of procedure and, in some cases, the patient’s willingness to maintain their results by making healthy lifestyle choices.
At our office, we offer many different types of breast surgery. Those who want to increase the size of their breasts can do so with breast enlargement, a procedure that can improve the overall size and appearance of the breasts. Those who want to lift the entire area to restore a youthful appearance can schedule a breast lift.
Those who want to decrease their breast size can schedule a breast reduction. Those who have undergone a mastectomy or have concerns with the aesthetics of their breasts can undergo breast reconstruction surgery to improve the appearance of their breasts.
Breast enlargement surgery is a procedure also known as breast augmentation. This procedure is designed for women who want to improve the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts. Women who have undergone a mastectomy, were born with smaller breasts, or who have experienced a significant decrease in breast volume after one or more pregnancies and nursing can schedule this procedure to improve their appearance and reach their aesthetic goals.
Once you undergo this procedure and an implant is inserted to improve the size, shape, and proportions of your breasts, you can expect to enjoy your results for ten years or longer.
A breast lift lifts the breasts on the chest wall. With the aging process, weight loss, multiple pregnancies, and nursing, women can experience changes in the position of their breasts which makes them feel less confident about their appearance. This procedure, also known as a mastopexy, involves the removal of excess tissue from the area to address sagging, drooping breasts. Once that extra tissue is removed, the surgeon can position the breasts higher on the chest wall.
It can be added to breast augmentation for those who need it since adding an implant will not change the position of the breasts. It can also be performed as a standalone procedure for women who do not necessarily want to change the size of their breasts, just their position. A breast lift delivers results that patients can enjoy for 10 to 15 years or longer based on the way that gravity and the aging process affect their skin and breasts in the years following their procedure.
Breast reduction is a procedure designed for women who were born with large breasts or whose breasts have increased in size due to weight gain or pregnancy and nursing. Breasts that are disproportionate to the body can cause health concerns that interfere with everyday life, including back pain, neck pain, and chronic pain.
This procedure is also known as a mammoplasty and is designed to reduce the size of the breasts to eliminate pain. It can also improve the shape and position of the breasts. If you’re unhappy with the appearance, size, or position of your breasts, or they are causing you a significant amount of pain, this procedure may be the perfect option. Once you undergo a breast reduction, you can expect permanent results.
Women who have undergone mastectomy or even some other procedure that has caused their breasts to become disproportionate, uneven, or defined by other aesthetic perfection can schedule breast reconstructive surgery to restore balance, symmetry, and proportion to the breasts.
Depending on the techniques used during your custom-tailored procedure, you can expect to enjoy the results of breast reconstructive surgery indefinitely. An initial consultation with our surgeon will determine whether this procedure is right for you and will also give you a better idea of how long you can expect your results to last.
Liposuction is an effective body contouring procedure. It removes those stubborn fat cells from the body and creates new body contours that will have you looking and feeling like an improved version of yourself. This procedure can remove stubborn fat from virtually anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, calves, ankles, thighs, legs, arms, back, buttocks, and it can even remove a double chin.
Maintaining Permanent Results
One of the benefits of this particular procedure is that it delivers permanent results. However, there is a catch, and to maintain your results, you need to avoid weight gain and practice healthy lifestyle habits to ensure that you maintain your results long-term.
Once those stubborn fat cells are removed from the body, your body cannot regrow new ones, but any existing fat cells left in the treatment area have the potential to expand if you gain weight. For that reason, it’s important that you eat a healthy diet, exercise consistently, and make healthy lifestyle habits so that you can enjoy your liposuction results permanently.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure technically known as blepharoplasty, and it helps address the signs of aging as they affect the eyes. Aging, lifestyle factors, and one’s facial structure can all cause the formation of excess skin, eye bags, and droopiness on both the upper and lower eyelids over time.
In some cases, excess skin can also become so severe that it impedes vision. This procedure removes excess skin from the area to restore a youthful appearance to the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both.
Maintaining Long-Lasting Results
This procedure delivers long-lasting results that last approximately seven to ten years or longer. Because the aging process cannot be stopped, you may experience additional skin laxity that affects your eyes as you grow older. However, following a skincare regimen, making healthy lifestyle choices, and staying out of the sun can all help you maintain your eyelid surgery results long-term.
A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure known as abdominoplasty. This procedure is designed to completely revamp the abdomen by removing stubborn fat, excess skin and tightening the entire area. It also involves the restructuring and tightening of the abdominal muscles that have separated with pregnancy or weakened over time. This procedure is intended to deliver permanent results.
Maintaining Permanent Results
Since liposuction is used to remove stubborn fat cells, you need to live a healthy lifestyle and avoid straying too far from your goal weight to maintain your tummy tuck results indefinitely. Additionally, women are always advised to wait until they are done having children to schedule this procedure since an additional pregnancy after a tummy tuck will negatively impact their results.
This procedure is completely customizable and can be custom-tailored to your specific needs. It can address the upper or lower abdominal area or both. It can also be combined with other procedures like breast augmentation or other forms of breast surgery, as well as liposuction on other areas of the body to deliver the most comprehensive results.
Rhinoplasty is the technical term for nose surgery. Rhinoplasty is a form of plastic surgery that addresses the appearance, structure, and function of the nose. Some patients who schedule this procedure do so simply to improve the appearance of their noses. Others want to correct issues with the function of their nose that keep them from breathing well, and others want to address both the appearance and function of the nose.
Customizing Your Ideal Procedure
Like most plastic surgery procedures, this procedure can be completely customized to your needs. Once you undergo rhinoplasty, you can experience permanent results. It’s important that you follow the aftercare directives and avoid activities or environments that could interfere with the healing of your nose in the months following your treatment.
If you’re looking for a way to improve your profile, balance your face, or simply exchange the nose you were born with for the nose you’ve always wanted, we can easily help you accomplish your aesthetic goals through rhinoplasty.
Taking the First Step
If you’ve been considering plastic surgery and are wondering when is the right time to take that first step, know that there’s no other time like the present. Investing in yourself will yield endless rewards. Improving your appearance is the gift that keeps on giving because it will positively impact not only your confidence and your self-image but, in many cases, your physical and emotional health as well.
A consultation with our surgeon will allow us to discuss all of your aesthetic goals with the surgeon, can evaluate your desired treatment area and help design a comprehensive treatment plan that will help you become the best version of yourself.
