Breast Augmentation Recovery – Breast Implants Dallas – Board Certified Plastic Surgeon – Sam Jejurikar, MD – Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute

Breast augmentation is an intensely gratifying procedure for patients, as they see immediate results after the procedure.  Like any surgical procedure, though, patients need to allow some time for recovery.

Recovery is variable from patient to patient. Most patients feel tired and sore after breast augmentation surgery, but this usually passes in a day or two. Many patients return to work within the week.  After a week, most patients have mild fatigue and soreness, but no other significant symptoms.

Surgeons vary in the amount of time they restrict their patients from exercising postoperatively.  I ask my patients to refrain from all vigorous exercise for 2 weeks postoperatively and from all upper body exercises for 4 weeks.  Patients don’t always want to comply with this, as they feel relatively normal well before their postoperative restrictions are lifted.

Scars from breast augmentation incisions will begin to fade in a few weeks and will continue to fade for months or years.

Johnson and Johnson stops making Evolence

This story is taken from the Wall Street Journal

A Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) unit has decided to stop making and selling a product called Evolence, used to fill facial lines in cosmetic procedures.

Ortho Dermatologics, a division of J&J’s Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, has a note on its Web site regarding the withdrawal, which it said was announced on Tuesday. The company confirmed the move in a statement.

The Evolence halt is part of an effort “to refine strategic priorities and focus investment on other growth opportunities,” Ortho Dermatologics said.

Many options for future management were explored before this decision was made, the company said. It added that patients and medical professionals can be assured that Evolence “remains effective for the correction of moderate to deep wrinkles and folds with a favorable safety profile.”

The facial filler gained approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June 2008, but it has been available in certain international markets since 2004. The U.S. arrival coincided with a rough time in the market for cosmetic medical products, which usually are not covered by insurers and came under pressure due to the recession.

J&J announced on Tuesday that it plans to lay off as many as 8,200 workers worldwide as part of a plan to save up to $1.7 billion in 2011.

Wide Awake Liposuction is now offered by Dr. Jejurikar – Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Awake Liposuction

Wide-awake liposuction is one of the newest trends in body sculpting surgery.  Dr. Jejurikar can perform liposuction on selected areas of the body without his patients needing general anesthesia. Not only does this lower the costs, but it avoids some of the side effects traditionally associated with general anesthetic agents.  The procedure is performed at EpiCentre Park Lane (Dallas) as well as at EpiCentre Legacy (Plano).

Technique

Dr. Jejurikar utilizes vibroliposuction for wide awake liposuction. In this system, which was invented in Beligum and is now used extensively in Europe, Asia and South America, the liposuction cannula is activated by air pressure, producing a complex movement of the tip. The complex cannula movement allows local anesthetic to infiltrate more evenly in the patient’s fatty tissue, creating less patient discomfort. In addition, the cannula movement causes emulsification of the patient’s fat, allowing for quicker and more uniform fat removal.  In addition, this technique promotes much less post-procedure swelling and bruising.

Recovery and Results

After wide-awake liposuction, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated area. Compression garments or elastic bandages may be used to help reduce these symptoms while the area heals. Patients usually can return to work in one or two days. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for two weeks.
