You can get enhanced results with Brazilian butt lift via fat transfer by Dr Brian Evans. Fat transfer can make your Brazilian butt lift a lot more visually pleasing. Fat injected from other parts of the body gives the surgeon greater body contouring possibilities. Brazilian butt lift is the foremost buttock augmentation procedure, and is specifically aimed at providing firm and rounded buttocks which result in a curvaceous backside.

Buttock enhancement procedures such as Brazilian butt lift can give women more self confidence and help them look good in beach costumes or evening dress.

Liposuction and Fat Harvesting

All butt augmentation procedures typically involve removing fat from areas that usually have too much fat such as the hip, flanks or the lower back and grafting these fat deposits into the buttocks. Liposuction is performed on the identified donor area to remove the fat. This process, called fat harvesting, involves creating incisions and using a cannula to remove the fat. The fat is then purified and processed before being injected into the buttocks. Tiny incisions are made on each of the buttocks and the fat deposits are placed in micro amounts with the help of a tinier cannula.

Skill of Plastic Surgeon and Innovative Technology

The amount of fat that is injected depends on how much is needed for the surgeon to sculpt the area according to the patient's expectations.
The ultimate appearance of the buttocks depends on efficient body contouring. The skill and experience of Dr Brian Evans MD an experienced plastic surgeon gurantee success of the procedure.

Stop Putting Up With Deep Wrinkles - Dr. Brian Evans

For some people, the fact that they have wrinkle lines on their face or around their eyes does not present much of a problem to them. Wrinkles may be affectionately referred to as being "laughter lines", "care lines" and "crow's feet" - wrinkles are a part of growing older which most will have to face up to sooner or later in time. For the very elderly, it almost seems to be a part of their character that they will have wrinkles - many a young child is fascinated that grandma not only has wrinkles but that she can also take out her teeth.

A combination of genetic disposition, lifestyle and habits will contribute to whether or not wrinkles may start forming at an early age. It is definitely true that wrinkles are regarded as a sign of aging, and that we live in a society which does prioritize youth and glamour as being desirable. It is however not vanity or a desire to cling to lost youth which makes it attractive to people to try and minimize the appearance of wrinkles - in fact you could say that in principle, ironing out your wrinkles is no different to ironing your clothes. Everyone wants to look fresh and clean and to make a good impression - attending to your appearance is only one of many social things that we do.

Particularly, for important social occasions, people like to look their best and getting something done about wrinkles is often on the list of things to do in preparation for a wedding, engagement party, birthday party, family gathering and all manner of social events. Many people do not want to have cosmetic surgery they simply want to camouflage their wrinkles for the day so they can look their best.

Cosmetics which improve the appearance of wrinkles include many proprietary brands of face and eye cream, and creams for the hands and the feet. Face creams can be those worn lightly during the day, providing protection from ultra violet sun rays, against dehydration of the skin, and providing a barrier against grime and pollutants, or richer, nourishing face creams to be left on overnight. Almond, macadamia and many different oils are contained in face creams that reduce the appearance of wrinkles by softening the skin. Various facial scrubs which contain oil and herbal essences can also be used to make sure that the face is completely clean also help to reduce tension in muscles and relax the skin.

Cremes intended to reduce the appearance of wrinkles often contain elastin and collagen, both of which are products which occur naturally in the skin - with elastin contributing to the flexibility of your skin, and collagen providing its texture and shape. If you use face creams with elastin and collagen in them, over a period of a few weeks you can expect to see an improvement in the generally quality of your skin.

Wrinkle creams also often contain Retinol, which will relax the skin and discourage the appearance of wrinkles. Light wrinkle creams are used around the eyes, because the skin surrounding the eyes is very delicate and needs to be treated with care. Often to enhance the features of the eyes, wrinkle creams will contain light reflecting pigments which tend to reduce the shadows that can appear under the eyes, and create a brighter appearance wherever this light reflecting cream is used.

Safety Tips by Dr. Brian Evans MD in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

The things that you should consider when planning any cosmetic surgery procedure are results, quality and safety. The following article is prepared, in order to educate and guide prospective clients in cosmetic surgery on how to choose the right surgeon to attain their goal.

1. Any surgery with the main purpose of improving the physical aspect of the human body aesthetically, as well as function, is an artistic challenge for us plastic surgeons, and should be a worthwhile experience for the patient. All cosmetic procedures, minor or major, should be done according to certain standards imposed and set by local authorities, in terms of safety. Once your goal is obtained after the procedure, this brings emotional fulfillment and satisfaction to both the surgeon and the person seeking the procedure. But patient's safety and health should be the main priority of your surgeon.

2. Inquire about your surgeon's academic profile and formal training in the field of cosmetic/aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. It takes 6 to 8 years of formal training in burns, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery at an accredited institution after medical school before a physician could call himself a Plastic Surgeon. This would include 3 to 5 years of General Surgery Program and 3 years of Burns, Cosmetic/Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery training. Nowadays, there are still a lot of doctors (even non doctors), though board certified, but definitely not in plastic surgery, who perform plastic procedures. With the complexity of the plastic surgery specialty, it is not enough for a physician to just undergo months or even a year of observership or training in an unaccredited establishment, in order for them to comprehend all the principles and applications in the field of plastic cosmetic surgery.

3. A surgeon, equipped with a firm foundation in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Plastic Surgery should be able to evaluate whether you are a good candidate for the surgery you are considering. He must be able to discuss with you, all possible options and its associated risks and advice you which procedure is best to attain your desired results. If there are less invasive or non-surgical procedures that could fulfill your needs, your surgeon should be knowledgeable about this and be able to tell you it’s advantages and disadvantages. Please be aware that there is no such thing as standard cosmetic procedure that would fulfill the desired result of all patients. Each patient should be approach and treated individually, since we have our own personal definition of beauty.

4. Do not look for the cheapest doctor; more so, do not be deceived by unrealistic offer. Know your surgeon's training and academic profile. Take note of his offer, if it is safe and attainable. You could inquire from any physicians' association, regarding the authenticity of your surgeon's specialty or training; lastly, ask friends and previous patients regarding his credentials. Try visiting their website, if he has one. Your surgeon must be able to provide you details of his training, specialization and the number of years he underwent training.

5. Your surgeon must be able to extensively discuss with you all your possible options. Don't hesitate to ask questions, a good plastic surgeon must be able to entertain all your inquiries regarding your desired procedure. Through this, the surgeon can establish rapport with their patients and establish a comfortable environment.

6. Don't allow yourself to undergo liquid silicon injection at your nose, breasts, or any part of your body. The use of silicon oil injection has long been abandoned and condemned because of its unpredictable result and complications, not to mention its untoward results such as extrusion and infection. Your doctor must be able to provide you data or clinical study regarding the use and safety of the product he is trying to promote.

7. Don't be attracted to newer procedures, drugs and prosthetics without proven long term studies with regards to result, efficacy and safety. Inquire about its approval for use by local and foreign regulatory agency such as US-FDA, Department of Health, etc. Take into consideration the quality, safety and efficacy rather than the cost.

8. Take note if your surgeon's clinic or cosmetic center were able to meet certain standard of safety and certified by the local Health Department. But be informed, that there are certain procedures that are best done in a hospital setting.

9. Ask your surgeon regarding affiliations or membership to any local Plastic Surgery organization that is recognized by both local and international body of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Brian Evans MD is a Board-certified plastic surgeon whose private medical practice has been divided between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and the care of the burn-injured patient.

Do I Need A Breast Lift Or Just An Augmentation? Ask Dr. Brian Evans

If you want to get some enhancement done on your breasts, it is fortunate today that there are a number of options available for you. And the best part is that these procedures can cater to your specific needs. But how do you know when you are going to need a lift or a breast augmentation surgery?

Dr Brian Evans often faced with that question from patients that feel their breasts are saggy. Sometimes the answer is obvious, but some other times it’s not that clear cut. Most of the time patients that would benefit from a breast lift already know the answer and they come in requesting that procedure. But there is a selected group that doesn’t want to do a lift but are afraid they are going to need it.  Let’s digress here for a moment; nobody really needs a lift, like nobody needs a diamond. You get it because you want it, it’s not essential for life but it makes you happy to have it. Similarly, getting a cosmetic surgical procedure may improve your quality of life, as you are no longer self-conscious about a certain part of your anatomy.

Having said that, the purpose of a lift is to improve the shape and form of a breast that has otherwise experienced profound changes due to pregnancy, breast feeding, loss or gain of significant weight or sometimes they simply developed with an unattractive shape. Most people can tell a pretty breast when they see it and that is because an attractive breast has defined proportions. They are nice and round, they are not too long, and they have nipples and areolas that are located centrally and facing forward.  The skin is firm and so is the glandular tissue and even though these last two items cannot be changed we can surely change the proportions of the breast with a lift. Most lifts can be done simultaneously with an augmentation to make the breasts larger but in extreme cases it’s better to do them separately or in stages.

So, how do I know when the breast will need a lift?  The answer is in the proportions. Dr Brian Evans MD measures the distance from the collarbone to the nipple and if this is greater than 24 cm then most likely it will need to be lifted. Another clue is orientation of the nipples; if they are pointing straight down then they need to be lifted regardless of the measurement. The size of the areolas (the dark skin that surrounds the nipple) is also important, as they get larger when the skin is saggy or stretchy.  Reducing their size along with centralizing their position is an essential part of restoring ideal proportions of an attractive breast. This is commonly referred by the vernacular as to going from “bologna to pepperoni”. The ideal size of an areola is about 4 to 6 cm in diameter but certain allowances can be given based on personal preference.

So far we’ve learned that a breast lift, also called a “mastopexy”, is performed to restore attractive proportions when the original breast has developed unfavorable ones. More often than not a mastopexy is performed in conjunction with an implant augmentation to improve the volume of the breast as well as enhancing the roundness and fullness of it. When an augmentation is performed alone in a breast with unfavorable proportions the results can be disastrous. There will be a mismatch between the breast and the implant that will appear worse than the original problem. Some practitioners will try to get around that problem using larger implants in order to expand and fill the saggy stretchy breast. Most often that will lead to unreasonable breast sizes that invariably make the patient uncomfortable and eventually the breast will sag even more in the short term. Fortunately, this situation can be corrected by providing the lift in conjunction with a reduction in the size of the implants. Dr Brian Evans MD has helped many patients in this situation who also happen to have old saline implants placed over the muscle. The conversion to silicone implants under the muscle along with a mastopexy has proven to be a very useful procedure in my practice restoring breast harmony in many grateful patients.

The reason many patients are reluctant to consider a lift is because in order to modify the unfavorable features of a breast you need to create skin incisions and therefore scars that are permanent. Luckily, new techniques available for this minimize the amount of scars. Also, the craftsmanship of a skillful plastic surgeon will help produce high quality scars that are located in a private area that very few people would have a chance to see.

If you still need to decide between a lift and an augmentation, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery Clinic a board certified plastic surgeon with a good reputation and ask around for references.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Problems: Dr. Brian Evans's Advice

Breast augmentation surgery is extremely popular. Generally, it is quite safe. However, surgery is never risk free. This article will help you discover the common problems with breast surgery and give you to on how to solve them.

In more than 20 years of private practice as a board certified plastic surgeon, Brian Evans MD has encountered lots of patients with a wide variety of problems after breast augmentation surgery.

Rupture of the implants is a main issue. Fortunately, this is fairly rare but it does happen. Older implants were more prone to rupture than today's implants. If your implants are more than 12-15 years old you should have them checked. Rupture is not always that easy to detect. For a definitive diagnosis, an MRI is required. A rupture should be taken care of immediately, but they are not terribly dangerous as was once feared.

The concerns raised in the '90's about ruptures leading to increased auto immune diseases have been proven false in the research. Fears of ruptures and auto immune disease linger, but Dr. Brian Evans MD assures you those particular fears can be put to rest due to extensive, positive research results.

Some problems boil down to disappoint with the aesthetic results of breast augmentation surgery. Women may feel they were not placed correctly, are the wrong size or are asymetrical.

What often happens to cause these problems?

The best way to perform the surgery is to place the implant behind the muscles and the breast tissue, not just the breast tissue. Unfortunately, some surgeons do not do it the right way; they do it the easy way.

If you have not yet had surgery, avoid these problems by requesting a retro-muscular placement, not a retro-glandular implant.

Shift in the body over time is more likely if the implants are not under the muscle too. so if a woman experiences significant weight loss or gain, or pregnancies after implantation, the stretching of the skin causes capsular contraction.

Capsular contraction is a condition characterized by scar tightening around the implants that makes them hard to the touch or cause an uneven shape, or both. The result is an augmentation that is obvious or simply not natural.

Other problems worth mentioning here are:
  • Poorly selected implants in terms of shape and form
  • Over-inflated implants
  • Implants that slip under the breast
  • Ugly scars
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Implants that are placed too high;
  • Developing the "double bubble" effect (this occurs when the muscle still attached to the underside of the breast produces a visible crease across the bottom half of the breast);
  • Implants migrate laterally over time into the armpit, thereby losing the projection in front and desired cleavage.

When these problems show up over time, it can often be traced back to mistakes made during the original surgery. Another reason why choosing a quality plastic surgeon is critical

If you experience any of the issues described above, you can visit Dr. Brian Evans MD a competent, board certified plastic surgeon. Call at (818) 676-4001 to learn more!

Are You A Good Candidate For Tummy Tuck Surgery? Consult Dr. Brian Evans

If you are considering undergoing the tummy trimming procedure known as the tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, you might want to re-consider. Sure a tummy tuck can be beneficial for a lot of people, but there are certain percentages of people out there who are considering a tummy tuck because they are just plain lazy. If you are getting a tummy tuck because you are gaining a few extra pounds of flab around the abdominal area, you might really want to reconsider and just utilize your own self control and hard work to help tone your tummy.

If you are somebody who has recently lost a lot of weight, and you have quite a bit of loose skin hanging around your stomach area, then you are probably a great candidate for a tummy tuck. So many people have put in the hard work and self control that have allowed them to accomplish their weight loss goals. Unfortunately, if you have lost a lot of weight, there can be some stretch marks as well as extra flab which can still make someone self conscious about their body. An abdominoplasty is a great way to put the finishing touches on all of your hard work up until this point.

You might have recently had a child, and let’s face it, a pregnancy can really take its toll on a woman's body. You might have some residual excess belly fat from the pregnancy, and if that’s the case you might be a great candidate for a tummy tuck. Yes, you could probably put in some hard work and self control to trim the excess belly fat and get your body back to how it was before the pregnancy. However, the truth is that you have just had a child, and its not a secret that raising a child is hard work, and you might not have the time to work out and tighten up your tummy, so if that is the case for you, you might really want to consider getting a tummy tuck.

Okay, so we've touched on a few instances where a tummy tuck might be in order. Now, let’s take a look at when you should NOT get a tummy tuck. If you are trying to lose a few extra pounds and your thinking about having some liposuction as well as a tummy tuck, you might want to think twice. Some might say that you are taking the easy way out. Cosmetic surgery can be very hard on the body, and there have been many situations where the outcome of the surgery has caused complications or worse for some people. If you are trying to lose a few extra pounds, don't consider getting a tummy tuck because that is lazy, and it just isn't as healthy as working hard and eating well.

However, a tummy tuck is not to be taken lightly, and if you are just looking to lose a few extra pounds. If you are one of the many people who need to lose just a few extra pounds, don't take the easy way out. Just work hard and eat healthy and you will be happy with your body before you know it.

Dr. Brian Evans Discussing the Responsibilities of an Ethical Plastic Surgeon

Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is big business nowadays. Every aspect of your body can be targeted via cosmetic surgeries and with new innovation and introduction of newer technology, plastic surgery is now available to the masses and not just meant for a privileged few. In fact society in general has more or less accepted plastic surgery as normal and people are not shy in proclaiming their desires for cosmetic enhancements.

All this has led to enormous growth in the plastic surgery industry and well qualified plastic surgeons are high on demand. However, as plastic surgeons see a significant growth in the number of clients they handle each year; it gives rise to many other concerns as well which are related with the negative aspects of this industry. This is where responsibilities of an ethical plastic surgeon comes in as it is felt the more responsible a surgeon is, the less the chances of any negative aspects emerging from this industry. As a professional plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Evans MD believes to adhere some responsibilities that are as follows:

1) Some individuals may have a genuine need for cosmetic plastic surgery and for some it might just be to look younger, be more fashionable, be more presentable etc. Unfortunately for some, plastic surgery or any kind of cosmetic enhancements is an addiction. While such clients can bring in a lot of business for a plastic surgeon, the surgeon should be able to say no when he or she feels that their client's addiction to cosmetic surgeries is going out of hand. While a surgeon won’t be able to accurately decide whether someone is addicted in the first couple of surgeries, but if the client is asking for cosmetic enhancements too often and has already had quite a few plastic surgery procedures completed, then it might be time to have a frank and honest talk with them to find out if the person is genuinely addicted to cosmetic surgeries.

2) A plastic surgeon should not always paint a positive image about the required surgery in front of their potential clients. They need to inform a client about the potential risks and dangers as well. They should paint a proper picture for the client on what the cosmetic surgery involves, how much time it takes for complete recovery and the potential pitfalls.

3) A responsible plastic surgeon should always have a plan of action ready to deal with any negative reactions on the patient's body post surgery. They should carefully plan out in detail the corrective measures to be taken if the surgery performed on the client does not go according to plan. They should carefully study all negative possibilities and prepare for each one of them.

4) Plastic surgeons must also encourage their clients to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle. They should advise them on the ill effects of smoking and other vices on their body. Surgeons should study their client's medical history thoroughly before deciding to go ahead with a plastic surgery procedure. If a potential client's medical history would adversely affect their body after a particular plastic surgery, the surgeon needs to inform the client about this and perhaps advise on postponing or cancelling the cosmetic surgery altogether.

Dr. Brian Evans is Board Certified in plastic surgeon, whose private medical practice has been divided between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and the care of the burn-injured patient. Dr. Evans is currently a surgeon at the renowned Grossman Burn Centers at West Hills Hospital in West Hills, CA.

Is Cosmetic Surgery Covered By Insurance? Ask Dr. Brian Evans

Is cosmetic surgery covered by insurance? This is a question that many people have and ask Dr. Brian Evans, when planning to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure. It is a fact that plastic surgery is expensive. The cost is a big factor that influences your decision whether to undergo cosmetic surgery or not.

Financing Options for Cosmetic Surgery

Before committing to any procedure, most plastic surgeons will ask you to pay a deposit. Plus, there are additional fees that you have to incur in the facility. The good news is that your insurance may help cover part of your procedure cost. There are many financing companies that offer easy and convenient loans to pay for medical expenses associated with plastic surgery. Insurance providers assist patients seeking cosmetic surgery with financing for their desired procedure. With the help of these financing companies, you can pay for your surgery costs in easy installments over time.

There are certain procedures that the insurance companies refuse to cover. As far as eligibility for insurance is concerned, plastic surgery is categorized into two: cosmetic and reconstructive. Certain cosmetic surgery procedures are undergone for reasons other than aesthetic ones. Cosmetic procedures that are performed to improve function rather than aesthetic aspects are eligible for an insurance cover. For e.g. when a person chooses to have blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery for cosmetic enhancement, then the procedure will not get insurance coverage. At the same time, the same procedure performed to correct drooping eyelids that are causing vision problems is eligible for insurance coverage. Breast augmentation, when performed to meet aesthetic goals is not covered by insurance.

Cosmetic Surgery and Insurance

Some of the cosmetic surgery procedures covered by insurance:
Abdominoplasty: If performed for an obese person to improve or eliminate health problems.
Breast surgery: It is eligible to get financial coverage for breast surgery procedures, if performed to reduce large breasts that cause back pain, shoulder pain, and related conditions.
Ear surgery: If performed to correct ears deformed by disease or injury, or those deformed at birth.
Blepharoplasty or Eyelid surgery: Is covered, if performed to correct drooping eyelids, which cause vision problems.
Nasal surgery: If performed to correct nasal deformities and nasal birth defects.

Find out whether the cosmetic surgery procedures you have opted for are eligible for insurance coverage. It is important to have a talk with both your surgeon and your insurance provider. They can explain to you whether your desired procedure is covered by insurance or not. Coverage for specific procedures and coverage levels might vary. You can receive full or partial coverage for your plan. Choose a reliable insurance company to consolidate and manage your healthcare expenses and make your body contouring dreams a reality.

Tummy Tuck - The Perfect Mommy Makeover

A new baby brings joy and life not only to you, but to your whole family. Although becoming a mother is a fulfilling experience, you may feel self-conscious about the effects that pregnancy had on your body. During pregnancy, your stomach muscles often separate and skin stretches, this causes loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, and excess fat that cannot be repaired without surgical intervention.

The perfect way to counteract the physical changes that pregnancy brings is by having a "Mommy Makeover," which is a combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction, and usually a breast augmentation or a breast augmentation with a lift. A tummy tuck is primarily designed to address the effects of pregnancy that cannot be reversed through diet and exercise. If you are considering a tummy tuck, it is important to carefully prepare and to follow your doctor's instructions for a successful recovery. Come to Beverly Hills in California and consult Brian Evans MD a Board-certified plastic surgeon.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that can restore a toned stomach by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. During a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon manually tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and sutures them into place. Excess skin is then removed from the patient's abdomen to create a firmer, flatter midsection. The abdominoplasty procedure can be customized to your specific goals and can be combined with liposuction and breast augmentation, or a breast augmentation with a lift.

Planning Your Tummy Tuck

Your current health and lifestyle, the areas of your body you want to target, and how a post-pregnancy tummy tuck will affect your family life are all factors that you will want to consider before undergoing a "mommy makeover." It is important to be at a stable weight before having tummy tuck surgery. However, if you have excess skin after your pregnancy, a tummy tuck is often the only way to get rid of loose overhanging skin.

Recovering From a Tummy Tuck

If you undergo a tummy tuck you can anticipate approximately 7-10 days off of work. During this time, you should not do any strenuous exercise. It is imperative that you follow the post-surgery instructions that you receive from your physician regarding how much weight you are able to lift, how often you should get out of bed, how long you should wear your compression garment, and how to care for your incision.

Complications from a Tummy Tuck

There are risks associated with any surgical procedure, but serious complications are rare with a tummy tuck. Common risks associated with any surgery include blood clots, infections, and slow healing. One of the most important things you can do to reduce the risk of complications is to avoid smoking and being around second-hand smoke. Exposure to cigarettes decreases the size of your blood vessels and constricts the amount of circulation and oxygen available in your blood to your incisions.

If you are considering a tummy tuck, Dr Brian Evans of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates is a rare and uniquely qualified plastic surgeon whose private medical practice has been divided between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and the care of the burn-injured patient.

You've lost all the weight, you're on a strict diet-You're even JOGGING! But, there's just one problem actually many problems:
  • Excess skin you hadn't expected left after weight loss.
  • Stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise won't budge.
  • An overall feeling of "what's the point"? After you've lost so much weight but there's that little bit left that won't go away.

Don't give up yet! Before you fall off the wagon, decide you are fated to be fat, and start shoving double cheeseburgers into your mouth. There's one more option-Plastic surgery. Plastic surgery after massive weight loss is a great way to shape up those little pockets of flab that won't say goodbye. The "body lift" is the most recommended plastic surgery.

How the Body Lift Gets the Job Done

The body lift is a combination plastic surgery that removes fat and tissue from different parts of the body. The tummy tuck attacks the belly fat, the arm lift fights the "bingo wings", liposuction sucks out fat, the butt lift battles the butt fat, the thigh lift well, you get the point.
Unlike these plastic surgery techniques, the body lift works on the whole body for total body contouring. It uses smaller versions of these procedures to pinch a little here, tuck a little there, and give you the finished product-A perfect body! Think of the body lift as the happy ending to your massive weight loss saga.

Finding the Right Surgeon

Body lift is becoming a more and more popular surgery, and as it does so, there are more doctors everywhere with the experience necessary to perform it. The first step is to research plastic surgeons in your area. You should look for a doctor who has some experience with the body lift. Because it uses lots of different techniques, experience is key. If you don't find anyone who does body lifts in your area, you should consider traveling to another area. Visit Brian Evans MD if you are looking in West Hills, CA.

After finding an experienced body lift surgeon, you should schedule a consultation. This is the most important step! At the consultation, your doctor will explain the procedure. They will explain what you can expect from your surgery. They'll also ask you about your medical history, and make an overall assessment of your flab problems.
The consultation is also your chance to get information about the surgery. Ask lots of questions, have a good look at before and after photos, and ask the doctor about their experience. If there is anything that puts you off about the clinic or the doctor, go somewhere else. It is far too important to leave in the hands of someone you don't totally trust.

You can expect some recovery time. Because the body lift uses so many small operations, the recovery can be serious. Make sure you follow doctor's instructions and most of all, take it easy for a while. Don't exert any part of your body. You'll just have to take a vacation on the couch and make somebody else do everything too bad!
Don't feel gypped after your massive weight loss. Get rid of the flab that keeps hanging around with a body lift. Plastic surgery after massive weight loss can get you the way you want to be-slim and happy!

At Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery West Hills Hosptial & Medical center, everybody lift procedure is customized for the needs of our patients.

Eyelid Surgery from Dr. Brian Evans Can Make You Look Brighter and Younger

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty creates an open, larger, brighter appearing eye. By removing excess loose skin and fatty tissue which produce bags of the upper or lower lid, the eye appears larger, less tired, more open and brighter.
In women, excess loose tissue prevents optimal use of makeup and obscures the normal contours of the eyelid. In both women and men, loose, sagging, bulging tissues make the eye appear smaller and more tired or stressed.
 The goal of eyelid surgery is to produce a significant improvement in eyelid appearance with the utmost safety.
If you have any type of eye disease or symptoms, these must be carefully investigated and considered in planning your blepharoplasty surgery, visit Brian Evans Plastic Surgery for more details. After examining you, Dr. Brian Evans may request a consultation from an ophthalmologist if he feels that your safety would benefit.


There are limits to the amount of tissue which can or should be removed from the eyelid. Excessive removal of fat can produce a hollow, unnatural appearance. Excessive removal of skin can cause deformities or prevent proper eye closure. The key to the best result is precise planning of the procedure based on careful measurements of your eyelids.
Eyelid surgery cannot remove every wrinkle from the eyelid area. Differences which exist in the eyelids on both sides may be improved after surgery, but slight differences will always be present.


Risks of injury to the eye, infection or bleeding which could impair vision are extremely small, but do exist and must be considered.
Other risks common to all surgical procedures such as bleeding, infection and scar tissue formation occur in a very small percentage of cases. We will give you more detailed information about these and other rare risks in our written information, and encourage you to discuss any which concern you during your consultation.
If deformities exist in areas of the face besides the eyelids, additional procedures may be necessary in those areas for optimal facial appearance.

About The Operation

It is critically important that decisions regarding amounts of removal be made with you upright immediately prior to surgery, since the degree of deformities changes drastically when you lie down. For the most accurate correction, your eyelids must be measured and marked with you sitting before going to the operating room.
By using very fine electrosurgical instruments for many aspects of the procedure, risks of bleeding and the amount of bruising following the procedure are greatly reduced, speeding your recovery.

Incisions for eyelid surgery are placed deep in the fold of the upper eyelid and immediately beneath the lashes in the lower eyelid to make them inconspicuous. If only fat removal is necessary in the lower eyelid, the incision can sometimes be located on the inside of the lid.

During the procedure, excess skin is removed from the upper and lower eyelids to improve lid contours. If excess fatty tissue is producing bulges or bags, only the excess is carefully removed to produce a natural lid appearance.
After carefully rechecking the lid, the incisions are closed with tiny sutures or stitches.


You will have virtually no pain whatever following your eyelid surgery. You'll have some swelling for the first two or three days after surgery, but it decreases rapidly by the third day.
When your sutures are removed on the fourth or fifth day after surgery, you can immediately apply makeup to the lids to hide any residual traces of bruising. You can usually return to your normal activities in a week or less.

The Stages of Recovery

Patients usually want to know about four stages of recovery: hospitalization time, when swelling or bruising is resolved, when they'll be able to return to work or social activity, and when they can return to full aerobic or strenuous exercise.
For eyelid procedures, the average procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. Bruising and swelling resole in 5-10 days or less. Patients can return to work and social activities within 14-21 days.

Most surgeons encourage immediate return to full normal activity immediately. Just don't do any type of strenuous exercise that would push your pulse over 100 for about two to three weeks. Any aerobic activity that increases your pulse over 100 also increases your blood pressure, and could make you bleed.

Silicone Gel and Breast Implants - Dr. Brian Evans

About Silicone Breast Implants 

On November 17, 2006, the FDA approved silicone gel implants. Now that the products have been determined to be safe and effective, the FDA will continue to monitor them by requiring each breast implant manufacturer (Mentor and Inamed) to conduct a large post approval study following which will follow about 40,000 women for 10 years after receiving breast implants. The FDA often requires post market studies to answer important questions that can only be answered once a product is in broader use, such as the incidence of rare adverse events.

The FDA's decision to approve these implants was based on a thorough review of each company's clinical (core) and preclinical studies, a review of studies by independent scientific bodies and deliberations of advisory panels of outside experts that heard public comment from hundreds of stakeholders. In addition, the FDA conducted inspections of each company’s manufacturing facilities to determine that they comply with the FDA Good Manufacturing Practices. Some of the complications reported in the core studies included hardening of the area around the implant, breast pain, change in nipple sensation, implant rupture and the need for additional surgery. However, the majority of women in these studies reported being satisfied with their implants.

In the past decade, a number of independent studies have examined whether silicone gel-filled breast implants are associated with connective tissue disease or cancer. The studies, including a report by the Institute of Medicine, have concluded there is no convincing evidence that breast implants are associated with either of these diseases. However, these issues will be addressed further in the post approval studies conducted by the companies.

About Silicone Gel

Silicon is the second most abundant element on earth, next to oxygen. Silicones are actually a family of chemical compounds. They are made of silicon, which is a naturally occurring element found in sand, quartz, and rock. When silicon is mixed with oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon, it becomes silicone. Silicone can be made in a variety of forms. Low molecular weight silicones form oils. Middle molecular weight forms gels, and high molecular weight forms elastomers and rubbers. Silicone is found in many other types of implants, such as facial implants, artificial joints, drainage systems, etc.

Currently, Mentor and Inamed silicone implants have 3 layers of shell surrounding the silicone gel. This reduces the amount of gel bleed. It does, however, make the implants a bit firmer than they were years ago, but this is attributed to the thicker shell. Silicone implants of today are still very soft and natural feeling.

Silicone gel breast implants come pre-filled, meaning that there is no fill to be added. The only real drawback to a pre-filled implant is that the incision will have to be a bit longer, depending on the size of the implant to be inserted. This is especially true for textured silicone and gummy bear silicone implants, which are somewhat firmer. Another reason that textured silicone implants require a longer incision is the fact that the shell is textured. Because silicone gel breast implants come pre-filled, they cannot be inserted via the TUBA incision (nor can any other type of pre-filled implant).

Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgeon an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation can be invaluable in helping you decide how large you want to go. Dr. Brian Evans MD can evaluate your anatomy and take accurate measurements of your chest and breasts to determine the proper proportions for your frame. He will also take into account how lax, or loose, your skin is — an important consideration because, for an aesthetically pleasing augmentation, you must have enough tissue to cover the breast implants.

Butt Enhancement @ Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery

You May Be a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt

Buttock augmentation with your own fat is yet another approach to add fullness, projection and shape to the under projected or flat buttock area. Also known as the Brazilian butt lift, this procedure involves a selective "gentle" liposuction technique, harvesting fat from those areas around the buttocks that tend to hide a more desirable shape and then transferring the fat into the proper areas of the buttocks in multiple layers. Harvesting the excess fat from the sides, above, below, and around the buttocks first enhances the curves and projection prior to the micro fat transfer and makes for an even shapelier derriere. Liposculpture and fat harvesting for buttock augmentation can use excess fat from numerous other areas including the abdomen, back, hips, waist, thighs, knees, and arms as needed

Many women find an imbalance between the size of their breasts in front and an under projected or flat buttocks in back. Both men and women alike know how nearly impossible it is to shape their bottoms with diet and exercise alone. The Brazilian butt lift can fill up deflated tushes or simply enlarge the buttocks for those who desire.  There are two different methods of buttock augmentation, buttock implants, or butt augmentation with micro fat grafting. Fat augmentation of the buttocks has become the preferred choice for gluteal enhancement due to a lower complication rate and much easier recovery.  Using your own body fat is very appealing as there is no implant, no chance of rejection, and no chance of capsular contracture, and no chance of "slipping" or shifting out of proper position.

Not everyone is a candidate, however, for this procedure as there must be a significant amount of excess fat available for harvesting and micro injecting.  For those without enough excess fat to transfer, gluteal implants can be placed

Brian Evans MD Plastic Surgeon has been successfully performing micro fat grafting for years. As the demand for more shapely bottoms skyrockets, these same techniques have been adapted to augment and shape the buttocks for those who are good candidates. The key to success with any fat augmentation procedure is micro fat grafting or transfer.  Fat is harvested using a low-pressure gentle liposuction method, processed and transferred into small syringes connected to micro canulas of 1.5 to 2 mm in diameter.
Each syringe of fat requires multiple passes, placing thousands of bead like droplets of fat cells into multiple layers of tissues and in multiple directions through these micro canulas.  These small bead-like droplets of fat can establish a new blood supply more easily than a larger mass of fat.  Micro fat transfer starts within deep layers of the muscle, in an interlacing fashion, and works slowly toward the superficial fat layers just under the skin.

Layering these small droplets of fat essentially one by one, allows for the best blood circulation to the fat cells and maximizes fat cell survival producing smooth, rounded contour and the best results. For example, a transfer having micro fat augmentation of the buttocks of 500 cc for each side will require nearly three thousand passes of the micro canulae

This takes time and patience with an average procedure requiring 4-6 hours. Not all of the fat will survive, some will be reabsorbed. No surgeon can accurately predict exactly how much fat will survive; however, it is believed that what remains after three months will remain permanently.

Micro fat augmentation of the buttocks will not result in lumps and bumps and will not cause cellulite. Actually fat has been used for years to correct irregularities and deformities of various parts of the body including the buttocks. Adding fat volume to the buttocks will look and feel completely natural as well as improve contour as is it has done in the face by experienced surgeons for years.

It is our experience at Brian Evans Plastic Surgery West Hills Hosptial & Medical center that the vast majority of patients will have successful results with fat survival. One thing is for sure, sculpting the buttocks by removing fat from the proper areas around and adding volume to the buttocks will certainly improve the contour, shape and curves no matter how much fat actually survives.  The combination of selective liposculpture and fat augmentation will produce a leaner look and shapelier

At our plastic surgery center in West Hills Hosptial & Medical center, Butt Enhancement is a popular procedure for both men and women. Whether our patients are looking for a shapelier backside or trying to give their “glutes” a boost, we can reshape the backside in a way that looks and feels completely natural. Buttock enhancement can also be featured as part of a lower body lift for patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery.
