Unique Properties of Radiesse Filler

Radiesse offers support to weakened facial structure as a unique property. In addition, it stimulates the production of fresh collagen in the deeper skin layers. This helps in increasing the longevity of rejuvenation effects for a year or more.

Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres which add fullness to the skin for treating depleted areas in the face. There are several clinical studies that prove the procedure is highly effective and sustainable.

You don’t require any allergy testing before undergoing the filler treatment since it is made from a naturally occurring compound in the human body called calcium hydroxylapatite. The skin will appear plumper in the initial three months following the procedure. There will also be a noticeable decrease in the lines and creases at the targeted area.

Radiesse microspheres will subsequently promote collagen production that will further enhance the results of the treatment. The results can last for as long as two years. Radiesse can also be used for effectively treating facial lipoatrophy, oral and maxillofacial defects, and chin dimples and scars.

Labiaplasty Vaginal Tightening

Labiaplasty

Questions to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon About a Thigh Lift | HoustonLabiaplasty was the second fastest growing plastic surgery procedure in the United States in 2013. There was an increase of 44% in overall surgeries performed as compared to 2012. An increasing number of women are opening up to the idea of enhancing aesthetics of their sexual parts.

They are also willing to explore the growing possibilities of vaginal rejuvenation and tightening procedures, like labiaplasty. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss all aspects of labiaplasty to help you make an informed decision.

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides labiaplasty vaginal tightening surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Labiaplasty Overview

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the enhancement of inner vaginal lips (labia minora) and outer vaginal lips (labia majora). Most women only require enhancement of labia minora.

However, it is important that you know that labia don’t have a standard or normal appearance. The sexual anatomy of every woman is unique. It’s crucial that the labiaplasty surgeon assesses the health and aesthetic needs of every woman individually.

Sometimes labiaplasty may be combined with other surgical or non-surgical procedures for vaginal tightening. These may include vaginoplasty, which involves tightening of the loose muscles and tissue in the vaginal canal.

Aesthetic Goals with Labiaplasty

Majority of women seek the reduction of labia majora or minora for one of the following reasons:

  • Acquired or birth related asymmetry in the labia
  • Discomfort while wearing bathing suits or tight clothes
  • Dissatisfied with the appearance of inner lips that extend significantly beyond the outer lips
  • Rubbing of inner lips during sexual or physical activity
  • Labia majora can cause clothes to not fit properly

Procedure Details

Labia majora or minora reduction procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in the surgeon’s office. This is a minor procedure which can also be combined with other procedures. Although, a combined procedure would need to be performed in a hospital or surgery center under general anesthesia.

It only takes 30 – 90 minutes to complete a labiaplasty procedure depending on the complexity and number of procedures performed. A topical numbing cream will be applied by the surgeon in case the surgery is performed under local anesthesia. The surgery will be performed by making discreet incisions in targeted areas. Excess skin will be precisely trimmed away. The labia minora and majora will be reshaped for creating a youthful looking appearance.

The incisions will be closed using absorbable sutures following the procedure. You will be asked to wear disposable undergarments for absorbing any drainage at the incision site. Mostly, patients can return home the same day.

Recovering from Labiaplasty

You will be kept on modified bed rest for at least 5 days. The surgeon will advise you against lifting heavy weights and performing vigorous procedures for at least three weeks. You should avoid having sexual intercourse for about 6 weeks. Rest and medications should improve initial discomfort from the second week.

You should be able to resume normal routine and work from the second or third week. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides labiaplasty vaginal tightening surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and nearby areas.
