Top Cellulite Treatments in Los Angeles

The Brazilian Cellulite Treatment

 

The contour of the buttocks and hips are especially important in plastic surgery as hormonal influences, genetics, and excessive fat can influence the development of cellulite in these areas. Cellulite is formed from dermal-fascial collagen fibers that pull the skin down in the setting of excess fat deposits. There are hormonal influences that affect cellulite deposits and that is the reason why cellulite may change in visibility from time to time.

 

Brazilian cellulite treatment in Los Angeles to eliminate cellulite. Options include celfina

 

Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has developed a high definition treatment for the elimination of cellulite on the body. The Brazilian Cellulite Treatment, as demonstrated by Dr. Karamanoukian on the popular television show The Doctors, is the most effective cellulite treatment modality. During the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment, Dr. Karamanoukian will release the cellulite fibers in order to smooth the contour of the skin overlying the hips, thighs, and buttocks.

 

In certain cases, Dr. Karamanoukian will complement the cellulite treatment with liposuction, tissue tightening, lipocavitation, and laser to tighten and tone the skin. These treatments are especially ideal before and after a Brazilian Butt Lift or fat grafting procedure.

 

If you have cellulite, and are unhappy with the contour of your hips, thighs and buttocks, you may be a candidate for the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will evaluate and examine your body to determine whether you are a candidate for cellulite treatment, laser therapy, and liposuction.

 

The Brazilian Cellulite Treatment is ideal for patients with cellulite as it requires minimal recovery and does not involve aggressive surgery. Patients can undergo the treatment awake with some tumescent anesthesia.

The growing popularity of liposuction has influenced the prevalence of bad liposuction scars on the abdomen, back, and arms. During the Brazilian Butt Lift, liposuction fat is removed and placed into the buttocks to improve the contour and volume of the buttocks. Liposuction scars can be dark, indented, or raised with keloid or hypertrophic scarring. There are many options to improve the quality and visibility of these  liposuction scars using lasers, RF therapy, scar modulation, and our advanced Hidef scar protocols for scarring.

Can I Exercise After a Hair Transplant? Santa Monica Hair Restoration
Ask the Hair Transplant Expert:
 
Can I exercise after a hair transplant?

 
I get many questions from hair restoration patients regarding exercise and hair transplantation. Opinions vary greatly so if you've had this procedures done by another surgeon, it's best to ask your doctor but here is the quick answer...
 
 
Resuming physical activity after hair restoration depends on the type of hair transplant you've had (FUT Vs. FUE). Most FUT (strip method) surgeons advice against heavy exercise specially lifting for two weeks. This is one of many reasons FUT surgery has gradually fallen out of favor.
 
 
Patient ​limitations after FUE or micro-hair transplant procedures is much less. Many of my patients go for walks the night of surgery (although I ask them to be accompanied by someone).  I generally tell my patients they can resume excersice after 24 hours as long as it does not cause rubbing against the grafts (e.g. helmets) or sweating.  You can start physical activity that can cause sweating after 3 days.
 
 
I consider PRP a great and exciting tool in hair restoration. There are no limitations after PRP injection other than no sweating for 3 hrs.

Top Treatments for Over-Plucked Eyebrows: Santa Monica Hair Transplant

At Santa Monica Hair Transplant and Restoration Center we are excited to discuss the latest developments in the field of eyebrow hair restoration. As eyebrow hair restoration specialists, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach to eyebrow restoration translates to the best results. This should involve a healthy and balanced diet including vitamin supplements such as biotin, minimally invasive procedures such as PRP injections, and finally micro-hair transplantation. Hair transplant for thinning eyebrows is not a new phenomenon, but recent advances in knowledge and techniques are making eyebrow transplant a more common remedy.

 

Eyebrow hair transplant in Santa Monica

 

There are basically two techniques for eyebrow hair restoration, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) also known at the strip method; and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In FUT a strip of your hair is removed from the back of the scalp; the strip is usually processed by specially trained technicians under a microscope and then the Follicular Units are transplanted to the recipient site. This method was considered the gold standard for decades and many surgeons still perform the procedure, however there are serious downsides to this method such as a permanent scars, greater pain, and longer recovery time. Lower graft survival is also a major deterrent to performing FUT on the eyebrows.  The benefit is lower cost.

 

FUE involves the harvesting of individual hair follicles and transplanting them into the recipient area. We refer to the FUE technique as micro-hair transplantation because it requires meticulous attention to detail and the individual follicles are selected based on caliber, density, and quality. This translates to minimal risk of permanent donor scars, less pain, faster recovery, and greater survival of the grafts.
