C-section belly fat removal by BodyJet liposuction

Having a C-section is no fun by any means. Then after months and years you look down and see that lovely roll of belly fat pooching over your C-section scar. There are very few fatty areas that worries women as much as c-section scar fat roll; many have undergone various treatments that promise c-section belly fat removal. C-section scar fat roll can be unsightly because the scar makes it difficult for the skin to stretch and the fat therefore does not distribute evenly and a fat roll is produced. Is it ever possible to get your dream tummy back? The answer is YES and here are few tips on what others have found useful. 1. Patience. Yes, patience! As the saying goes, Rome was not built in a day. It took 9 months to put the weight on and it can even take longer to make it go away. 2. Healthy eating. Cutting out fattening foodsmeans at least you won’t on more fat whilst you are trying to get rid of what is already there. 3. Exercise – any is better than nothing. Try walking but better still do hard crunches and small weightsbut be persistent. 4. If all the above fails or you want faster resolution, then try BodyJet lipo for c-section belly fat removal. This is a very safe procedure and in some cases it has even been possible to move the fat cells round and elevate a depression in the scar. But when there is excessive skin laxity or overhanging skin BodyJet lipo may not be very effective so choice of clients for treatment is very important. 5. Abdominoplasty or...

Botox cost and comparing botox prices

Being the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment, Botox treatments also show probably the widest variation in prices for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Generally considered the simplest aesthetic procedure, it is generally the starting point of entry into the industry for most practitioners. So, how much should botox cost and how does a client compare botox prices or quotes? 1. Experience. The more experienced botox injectors would most likely charge more as they put their wealth of experience into practice and also have a stable client base that are loyal because of the consistent result they get. 2. Package. Does the botox fee you have been quoted include a free top-up or correction? you could end up paying  more if top-up is not free. 3. Availability. Is the practitioner clinic-based or simply visiting. A visiting botox injector may charge less, but you may not always get appointment or correction at suitable time. 4. Minimum client number. Will the botox practitioner or clinic do your treatment even if you alone are booking or is there a minimum number of clients for the clinic to run. A minimum number of clients per session means you may suffer the disappointment of your botox treatment being cancelled at short notice. 5. Your preference. Do you prefer sitting in a botox party and getting a quick jabs in front of everybody or are you rather discreet and prefer people to offer flattering comments about your refreshed looks. 6. Is the practitioner registered and insured? Botox cost with a registered and insured practitioner will certainly be higher but no price is too much to pay for...

How can I get the meningitis B vaccine privately?

Meningitis B is caused by meningococcal group B bacteria and the number of people affected yearly in the UK is around 1200. Although this does not seem to be a lot at first glance, meningitis B is a major health concern because 1 in 10 of affected people will die from it. This is why the discovery of meningitis B vaccine was welcomed worldwide. The vaccine, Bexsero, provides protection against almost 90% of the circulating strains in the UK. It is given as course and the number of doses for a course depends on the starting age. The minimum age is 2 months old. Meningitis B vaccine contains a killed strain of the bacteria with some proteins that are found on the surface of the bacteria. It is given by injection usually into thighs or babies. Since the meningitis B vaccine contains only killed bacteria, it is not possible for it to cause disease. Our clinic has been offering this vaccine privately our experience is that side effects are just same as with other vaccines – mild fever, some irritation or tenderness at injection site. All these resolve...

Where to get chickenpox vaccine in Milton Keynes

Chickenpox has been around and would certainly continue to be around. It is quite contagious but in most cases resolve without any complication. However, chickenpox does have some effect on the family – the child cannot go to school, a parent may need time off work to look after the child. There are also cases where chickenpox has left permanent scars and this may affect self esteem. Chickenpox in most cases is mild and in the past, some parents have organised chickenpox parties so that their children can have it and  become immune to it. But we also now know that the immunity from natural infection may not last a life time. Having the chickenpox vaccine is a very effective way of preventing chickenpox and is much safer than getting the disease from a ‘party’. About 9 out 10 people who receive the chickenpox vaccine are completely protected. In the remaining, the disease is usually not severe if they do get it. We are seeing another trend in the request for chickenpox vaccine in our clinic. This is mainly from adults who are largely self-employed or the sole breadwinner in the family and have never had chickenpox before. When a child is born or starts to go to nursery, these adults get vaccinated to make sure they do not catch chickenpox as this may cause a downtime with...

Butt injections

Buttock enhancement by injections has become very popular with women across all ages. Tens of thousands of buttock augmentation treatments or procedures are carried out every year. Sadly many of these are done illegally and have led to major health problems or even death of the patient involved. There are many reasons for the problems that have risen from butt injections 1. Cost – the average cost of the procedure when performed by a trained doctor varies depending on whether it was a  buttock fat injection, a butt implant or surgical but lift by transplanting muscle. Generally the costs starts from about £4,000 which may be out of reach for some clients. 2. Rise in number of illegal practitioners – This is particularly common in the USA where non-medical people pose as doctors and inject their buttock with various substances. The activities of these people are hard to stop as they are not regulated but every prospective client can be diligent by asking for the credentials of the practitioner. 3. Internet marketing – The internet has become awash with all sorts of deals and offers that make it difficult for clients to choose. Also, as it is not always possible to trace the location of a company, many sites advertise dangerous materials for use in DIY bottom augmentation. Buttock augmentation fat injection, also called buttock augmentation fat transfer offers you a safe, natural way to enhance your buttocks. By using your own natural fat, there is no risk of reaction, rejection or allergy. Also, it is minimally invasive compared buttock enhancement using muscle...

5 reasons to do liposuction under local anaesthesia

There has been a lot of concerns and doubts from patients about having liposuction under local anaesthesia. This is not surprising as the thought of a doctor taking fat away whilst being awake sounds squeamish but in reality this is the safest option for liposuction. Below are 5 reasons why we advise liposuction under local anaesthesia instead of general: 1. The risk of general anaesthesia is well known and serious adverse reactions including death have occurred. As a matter of fact, all the deaths recorded from liposuction have been in cases when general anaesthesia was used. 2. The greatest danger of general anaesthesia is the tendency for the doctor to feel less restrained and carry out too much liposuction. This means that it is not the general anaesthesia but the consequences of using general anaesthesia can be dangerous. 3. Excessive surgery alert – with liposuction under local anaesthesia, patients are able to tell the doctor early when they start experiencing symptoms of excessive surgery such as lightheadedness and dizziness. A patient under general anaesthesia cannot tell doctors when they have had excessive surgery. 4. Planning the extent of surgery:  when faced with a client who wants many cosmetic procedures, there is a tendency for the doctor to try to carry out all of these in a session. Doing multiple procedures on the same day means prolonged exposure to anaesthesia with its attendant risks; also the risk of forming blood clots is increased due to prolonged immobility. There is a risk of overloading an unconscious patient with fluids. Dividing the procedures into separate days is safer although more expensive due to...

How long should botox last?

The effectiveness of Botox (Botulinum type A) to reduce lines and wrinkles is not in doubt any more. However, many clients are unsure of how long they should expect the result of their treatment to last for. It is a common occurrence that clients say that they were disappointed ‘because the effect of treatment did not last for 6 months’. A lot of this confusion has occurred because of different observations in various people and also the marketing war between the manufacturers of various brands of the product. The duration of the effect of Botox treatment depends on a number of factors such as the strength of your muscle, the amount of Botox injected, how you use your muscles, how regularly you have treatment and what is the reason for treatment. According to the specific product literature of most Botulinum brands, an interval of at least 3 months should be observed between treatments. This goes to say that the average expected duration of treatment is 3 months. In the marketing war between manufacturers, we see claims like ‘effects can last up to 5 months’. While this may be true in some few individuals, this bland statement about Botox does not tell us if this claim is about new clients, people that have been having Botox before and how regularly, or which area of the face the effect seems longer. This makes it all confusing for clients and can be a cause of dissatisfaction with treatment. Our observation after many years of offering Botox treatments is that the effect of Botox on average lasts 3 months and Botox result does...

Liposuction recovery after local anaesthetic

It has been interesting for me to discover most clients I have spoken were surprised to learn liposuction can be done under local anaesthesia and wondered how safe this is. I am glad to state that the safety of liposuction under local anaesthesia is significantly higher than liposuction under general anaesthesia; this has been consistently proven in studies comparing the two options. As a matter of fact, liposuction under local anaesthesia has been the gold standard in the last decade. This is because firstly, the known general anaesthetic risks are absent when performing the procedure under local anaesthesia. Secondly, when working on an important area like the abdomen, general anaesthesia results in the patient losing the protective reflex that tightens their muscle and hence increases the risk of injury; with local anaesthesia this reflex is not lost and this is why the risk of injury to internal organs is virtually non-existent. Also, general anaesthesia increases the risk of developing blood clot in the legs due to immobility, this risk is reduced with local anaesthesia. It has also been shown that client satisfaction with result is higher with liposuction under local anaesthesia; this is because when a client is awake during the procedure s/he is able to turn so the doctor can reach the treatment area from the various directions that will optimise treatment. All of these coupled with the fact that there are no anaesthetist’s fees have made liposuction safe to be carried out as day-case procedure. Liposuction recovery after local anaesthetic is quick and the client is able to return to work within a couple of days. Liposuction...
