Body Plastic Surgery
Helping patients who have put forth tremendous effort in losing weight is a step that Dr. Madjidi is proud to take. By dieting, exercising, or even undergoing bariatric surgery, the body loses fat and sometimes the distended skin does not recoil back into place. Instead, it becomes flaccid and excessive for the new body size. The way clothing fits becomes problematic, and even physical activity and intimate life may become an issue. If you are experiencing this effect of massive weight loss, body contouring at our Houston office serving Sugar Land and Pasadena can help you. Contact us today to learn more.
If after having followed a diet and exercise program you still have localized areas of fat, liposuction can help you achieve the body tone you desire. The liposuction technique was first developed in France, where Dr. Madjidi trained and practiced before she moved to Houston and retrained. Today, different techniques of liposuction are available. Basic liposuction, using manual or power assisted canulas, and liposuction using ultrasound or laser technology are all different methods available for different needs. Dr. Madjidi can help you define areas of the most concern and choose the best technique to treat them. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Madjidi and find out how liposuction can help you, contact our Houston office, serving patients from around the world, today.
If you have failed to achieve your goal in losing that little bulge between the navel and the pubic bone despite diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for a mini tummy tuck at our Houston office. Dr. Azita Madjidi will evaluate you to see if you are a good candidate for a mini tummy tuck based on the amount of fat and skin laxity that you have. The mini tummy tuck is ideal for the correction of minimal amounts of skin and fat excess in the isolated area between the navel and the pubic bone.
Tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty does three things: it removes excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen; it tightens the abdominal muscles, like an internal binder; and repositions the belly button. All of these components are important and Dr. Madjidi pays special attention to the details of tummy tuck to have the best result possible. Once the excess skin of the lower abdomen is removed and the muscles stitched together, the upper skin is pulled down and becomes flatter looking. Your belly button, still attached to you, is brought through a new hole and is given a more vertical and youthful look. Your abdomen will be firmer and flatter and your waistline narrower. Stretch marks of the lower abdomen will be gone but those above the navel will stay.
If your face or any other area of your body has lost its definition, fat injection treatment can help you reclaim a beautiful, vibrant appearance.
With aging, facial fat diminishes causing wrinkles, folds, and flat cheeks. Restoring volume and fullness by replenishing the hollowed area provides a more youthful appearance. Dr. Madjidi uses fat grafting methods to bring subtle changes to specific areas such as cheeks, lips, temples, the forehead, or any depressed area in the body amenable to this technique. The fat comes from the patient’s own body.
Fat transfer refers to part of the fat injection process, which includes taking excess fat from one area of the body (like the abdomen or thighs), and using it to treat another that is in need of cosmetic enhancement. Once the fat has been harvested during liposuction, the whole, healthy fat cells will be gently cleansed and purified before they are injected into the treatment site. The fat transfer process not only offers natural-looking results, but also poses none of the risk of allergic reaction to synthetic materials, like dermal fillers.
Even if you have managed to shed a large amount of weight, you may be frustrated by excess skin. Many of our patients are eager to show off their new figures, but sagging skin can impact your self confidence as much as extra weight once did. Dr. Madjidi will work closely with you to determine appropriate procedures to address your unique concerns. Popular body contouring procedures for patients who have undergone substantial weight loss include arm lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck.
