When Diet and Exercise Have Failed

With summer just around the corner, everyone is getting ready to enjoy the warmer months. The pool, the beach, and outdoor barbecues are common activities people partake in during the summertime. As the sun comes out, many people tend to show more skin to stay cool in the hot weather. Some people may be panicking and worried about getting beach body ready. The idea of bikinis, shorts, or tank tops might be causing people to diet and exercise so they can feel confident with their bodies in more revealing fashions. However, genetics and a person’s age can make it hard for them to meet their body goals. When diet and exercise have failed, plastic surgery could be an ideal option for achieving your desired physique. With so many new advancements in body contouring, an individual can get the body they want when at-home efforts are ineffective.

Your Body Contouring Options

Before and After LiposuctionThere are several plastic surgeries a person can undergo to correct certain characteristics that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Dr. Wald offers a variety of body contouring procedures at his practice. Here are some of the options available:

  • Tummy tuck surgery: Postpartum patients and people who have lost a significant amount of weight often find it difficult to target unwanted fat and skin in the stomach area. Tummy tuck surgery is designed to eliminate excess abdominal fat and skin and tighten the abdominal muscles to create a slimmer, more defined waistline.
  • Liposuction: Stubborn fat accumulations are a common problem for all different types of individuals. Liposuction can be performed on any area of the body that has unwanted pockets of resistant fat.
  • Breast lift surgery: Aging, genetics, weight loss, and many other factors can contribute to breast sagging and laxity. Breast lift surgery can be performed to restore the breasts to a more youthful position by lifting the breast tissue.
  • Breast augmentation: Lack or loss of breast volume is not something that can be corrected with diet and exercise. Breast augmentation can alter the shape or size of the breasts using saline or silicone breast implants.

Whether you want to get rid of excess fat or correct the appearance of the breasts, Dr. Wald can help you achieve your desired look. Patients can choose to undergo one or a combination of body contouring procedures depending on their body and goals. Those who are apprehensive about a surgical procedure may be candidates for some of our non-surgical techniques. SculpSure® is an ideal option for those who do not want to or cannot undergo surgery. With minimal downtime and pain, SculpSure® can flush out and destroy fat cells to create a smoother, thinner waistline.

The Benefits of a Brow Lift

shutterstock_41563423If you’re like most middle-aged men and women, fine lines and wrinkles have likely developed on your forehead. Over time, these conditions worsen, causing the brows to sag and furrows to form between them. To combat these signs of aging, perhaps you’ve tried various products that aim at restoring collagen fibers and smoothing out the skin. However, many people often see little, if any improvement with these products. When all else has failed to effectively eliminate aging in the forehead and brow area, cosmetic treatment is performed.

At his Fullerton practice, Dr. Robert Wald regularly performs endoscopic brow lift surgery. Also known as a “forehead lift,” this procedure offers many benefits.

Diminish Forehead Wrinkles

Facial movements, combined with other factors like sun exposure, can leave the forehead with permanent wrinkles. A brow lift removes excess skin on the upper face and tightens the remaining skin to smooth out the appearance of the forehead.

Minimize Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet

Years of squinting can cause deep creases to form between the eyebrows (frown lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet). A brow lift can effectively reduce the appearance of these lines and creases and provide a more youthful facial appearance.

Reduce Folding in the Eyelids

Aging and gravity make the skin above the eyelids droop over time. By raising the brow and forehead areas, the skin sagging skin over the eyelids becomes tighter and less saggy.

A brow lift provides long-lasting results and is often performed concurrently with other procedures facial restoring procedures such as a facelift or eyelid lift. For patients seeking temporary improvement, BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet).
