Vaginal Tightening with Labiaplasty Surgery

Tag Archives: medical spa

shutterstock_85988695-300x200 Vaginal Tightening with Labiaplasty Surgery Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsLabiaplasty has emerged as a popular cosmetic surgery for women seeking vaginal tightening and aesthetic enhancement of the labia. A larger labia may occur by birth or the labial tissue may become lax due to aging and other factors. An elongated labia can interfere with the daily activities, impose restrictions on the types of clothes a woman may wear, and may even affect the sexual satisfaction of a woman.

Labiaplasty can correct this condition by reducing the size of the labia and reshaping it to improve the patient’s quality of life and sexual aesthetics. It is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon for a sensitive and intricate procedure such as labiaplasty for vaginal tightening. Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) is a leading plastic surgeon providing labiaplasty to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.

 

Candidacy

If the inner labial lips hang below the outer labia majora, a woman may be a good candidate for labiaplasty plastic surgery. Women who experience discomfort or pain during intercourse due to excessive pulling on the labial lips, have problems with labial hygiene, or feel embarrassed to wear certain types of clothes with confidence, may seek permanent relief through labiaplasty.

The surgeon will evaluate the condition of the labia to determine whether it is possible to address the woman’s concerns with labiaplasty procedure. Minor asymmetries between labia minora and majora may persist even after the procedure. The surgeon will explain all aspects of the surgery to help the patient make an informed decision.

 

Treatment Options

If the labia majora is excessively large, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend liposuction or excision of the elongated tissue. On the other hand, if the labia majora is unusually small, the surgeon may have to perform a fat transfer procedure to augment the size. The procedure may be performed at an accredited surgical center with the patient under general or local anesthesia with sedation.

Labia minora will be evaluated not only for size, but also for clitoral hooding. Sometimes one part of the minora may be oversized, which can be corrected with partial tissue removal to enhance the size and shape. This technique is often accompanied by removal of excessive clitoral hooding, which will involve an extended incision between the minora and majora.

When excess tissue in both the majora and minora is removed and meticulous hemostatis has been achieved, labia reshaping will be coupled with customized closure. In some cases, the surgeon may offer non-invasive treatment options such as laser tightening or collagen injections into the G-spot. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for labiaplasty.

 

Recovery

Most women can resume their regular activities or return to work in about one week after labiaplasty, but complete healing can take up to six weeks. Hygiene in the incision areas must be maintained carefully, and sexual activity should be avoided for at least one month. The surgeon may provide an antibiotic ointment to be applied twice a day for the first two weeks.

shutterstock_127105022-300x200 What is Aesthetic Surgery? Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsWomen and men who are unhappy with the appearance of one or more parts of the body may seek aesthetic surgery to improve the condition. Aesthetic plastic surgery procedures are designed to correct cosmetic flaws that make an individual feel self-conscious or affect their quality of life. Aesthetic treatment options will vary according to the age, condition and personal goals of a patient.

Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) is an aesthetic fellowship trained, board certified plastic surgeon providing cutting edge aesthetic surgery as well as non-surgical procedures. Dr. Q customizes a procedure according to the patient’s unique anatomical and aesthetic needs. Dr. Q provides aesthetic surgery to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.

 

Aesthetic Surgery for the Face

Face is a prominent part of the body from an aesthetic perspective. Signs of aging or any other anomalies of the facial features will reveal easily on the face. Facelift and neck lift cosmetic surgery are popular procedures to minimize or eliminate sagging skin, excess fat tissue, and wrinkles and lines from the face and neck.

Other key procedures, which may be performed in combination or individually include lower and upper eyelid lift, forehead lift or brow lift, nose reshaping surgery or rhinoplasty, chin or cheek implants, chin lift, cheek lift, and facial fat transfer. Fat reduction in the face and neck areas may be performed using liposuction aesthetic surgery.

Some patients may need only partial or maintenance procedures such as mini facelift. Non-surgical treatment such as Botox, dermal filler injections, and laser skin resurfacing may sometimes be combined with facial surgery to achieve more comprehensive outcomes in a less invasive manner. Face and neck surgeries are often combined to create more uniform looking results.

 

Aesthetic Surgery for the Body

Many women and men may accumulate unwanted fat deposits in certain areas of the body with age. This could adversely affect the overall contours and figure with excess fat tissue in the thighs, hips, flanks, abdomen, back, upper arms, calves, and knees. The cosmetic surgeon may recommend liposuction surgery to perform targeted fat reduction and enhance body contours.

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is another major aesthetic surgery to restore a flatter and firmer abdomen. The procedure may involve skin tightening, fat removal and repositioning of the underlying weak abdominal muscles. Some women may seek mommy makeover procedure, involving multiple surgeries, to restore their pre-pregnancy figure. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for aesthetic surgery.

 

Aesthetic Surgery for the Breasts

Breast cosmetic surgeries for women are increasingly popular, and may be combined independently or in conjunction with other procedures. Breast augmentation, involving surgical placement of saline or silicone implants to increase the breast size, is the second most popular aesthetic surgery after liposuction.

Some women may be bothered by the appearance of heavily drooping breasts and downward pointing nipples. This condition can be corrected with breast lift surgery, or a combination of breast implants and breast lift. Breast reduction aesthetic surgery may be performed on women who are bothered by the appearance of oversized breasts.

botox-before-and-after-photos-300x167 What is Botox Used for Cosmetically? Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsOne of the most common aesthetic concerns for both women and men is the appearance of aging lines on the face. While cosmetic surgery options are available to address facial wrinkles and lines, not every individual is inclined to choose surgery. Botox injectable treatment is a proven, remarkable, and effective alternative in such cases. With Botox, the patient can enjoy a smoother, wrinkle-free face for four to six months with a simple injection procedure.

In 2002, the FDA gave its approval to Botox for cosmetic reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Ever since then, the procedure remained the leading non-surgical facial anti-aging treatment. Millions of women and men benefit every year from Botox Cosmetic injections. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides Botox to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.

 

Aesthetic Benefits

Botox was originally approved by the FDA for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines between the brows and on the forehead. In 2013, the FDA further approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox certified providers also use Botox safely and effectively for non-label aesthetic purposes, such as diminishing wrinkles and lines around the nasal base and other facial areas.

While Botox is highly popular as an independent facial anti-aging procedure, it is also used as a support treatment along with facial cosmetic surgeries such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift to create optimal outcomes. Innovative combinations include Botox along with dermal filler injections such as Restylane and Juvederm to perform “liquid facelift” non-surgical procedure. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for Botox facial treatment.

 

Treatment for Specific Facial Areas

A Botox treatment provider may treat fine lines and minor wrinkles in the following specific areas with highly effective outcomes:

 

Eyes

Dynamic wrinkles and lines can occur around the eyes due to repetitive motion of eye muscles and facial expressions. Such lines generally respond very effectively to Botox. The treatment will relax only the overactive, wrinkle forming facial muscles, and the nerves of sensation. Therefore, the patient will not experience any loss of sensation with Botox in the injection sites.

 

Brows

Frowning, laughing, and smiling are common expressions that can create permanent lines between the brows over a period of time. Botox treatment has been specially designed to reduce moderate to severe frown lines in a significant manner. It is equally effective for men who need to reduce the appearance of deep furrows between the brows.

 

Forehead

Aging can cause permanent creases on the forehead, which can make the face appear tired or old. Botox can mitigate the appearance of these lines. Forehead lines are horizontal, which are easier and more effective to treat with Botox.

 

Jaw Contouring

In recent years, Botox treatment experts have been successfully applying Botox to improve jaw contours. Oversized jaw muscles that are used for chewing can make the face look square shaped and awkward. Botox injections can be used at strategic points to create a more oval shaped and natural looking face.

freeze-the-fat-away-with-coolsculpting-300x200 What is Reverse Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Surgery? Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsReverse abdominoplasty is a unique cosmetic surgery procedure that involves pulling up of the excess skin rather than down, as in a traditional abdominoplasty. The procedure may be recommended for women and men who did not achieve full skin tightening and firmness above the navel in a previous tummy tuck surgery.

If a woman seeks tummy tuck in conjunction with breast surgery, a reverse abdominoplasty may help because the incision can be made in the same place and the excess tissue from one area may be used in the other in some cases. This enables a more conservative surgery to be performed. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides reverse abdominoplasty to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.

 

Procedure

The reverse abdominoplasty plastic surgery technique involves the excision of loose abdominal skin vertically upwards. The incisions are placed discreetly in the inframammary creases beneath the breasts, which will hide the scarring. Ideal candidates will be women with slightly or fairly sagging breasts, which serve to conceal the inframammary folds successfully.

The surgeon will place permanent lifting sutures that raise the lower skin edge, following excision of loose skin, to the upper skin edge in the inframammary fold. The permanent sutures will keep the resulting surgical scar hidden within the fold. This is an important part of the reverse abdominoplasty procedure.

 

Benefits

Dr. Q is a leading cosmetic surgeon who will recommend reverse tummy tuck to suitable candidates in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and other areas. One of the key benefits of this surgery is that it ensures that the patient’s original belly button is preserved. Therefore, a woman will not have any visibility of the surgical scars when she is wearing a two-piece bikini or regular undergarments.

Another important benefit is that the procedure involves reduced interruption of the normal blood supply in the abdominal tissue because less undermining of the skin is involved. This allows for a more extensive liposuction of the waist and back to be performed at the same time.

 

Comprehensive Surgery

Many of the patients who decide to receive reverse abdominoplasty surgery will have the advantage of a more comprehensive procedure in a less invasive manner. They will undergo a reverse upper abdominoplasty in conjunction with a lower mini or partial abdominoplasty.

This will involve tightening of the complete length of the rectus abdominis muscles, and liposuction of the circumferential trunk. At the same time, the original belly button will remain intact. Dr. Q usually refers to this procedure as ‘reverse upper / modified lower abdominoplasty’.

 

Ideal for Women Seeking Breast Surgery

The incision in case of a reverse abdominoplasty can be placed beneath the breast instead of the lower abdomen. A breast lift or breast reduction procedure can then be performed through the same incision.

If the woman needs breast enhancement without implants, a reverse abdominoplasty will allow the use of excess tissue removed from the abdomen to augment the breasts. Dr. Q is one of the few surgeons performing reverse abdominoplasty for appropriate candidates with outstanding results.

shutterstock_127206629-300x300 Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsA growing number of men are seeking cosmetic surgery every year, leading to innovation and customization for male aesthetic procedures. While some procedures are specifically designed for men, many men, in fact, choose procedures similar to the ones women do.

It is important to choose a plastic surgeon who understands male anatomy and has experience in providing procedures for men. Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) is a leading plastic surgeon providing aesthetic procedures to men in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.

 

Common Procedures

Some of the plastic surgery procedures that are similar between women and men may include the following:

 

Eyelid Surgery 

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed to rejuvenate the lower or upper eyelids or both. The surgeon will make small incisions in targeted areas to remove excess fat and skin from around the eyelids. This can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, under-eye bags, and droopy skin over the upper lids. Sometimes the procedure may be combined with a brow lift to achieve more effective aesthetic outcomes.

 

Nose Reshaping

Nose reshaping surgery or rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to enhance the shape or size of the nose in proportion to other facial features. It may include redefining the nasal tip, straightening nasal bridge, removing nasal bumps, improving the shape of nostrils, and other corrections. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for male rhinoplasty.

 

Tummy Tuck 

Excess fat and skin in the abdominal area is a common problem for men, which may occur due to genetic or lifestyle factors. This condition can be corrected with abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery. In recent years, an increasing number of men are choosing tummy tuck to improve their abdominal contours.

 

Specific Male Procedures

Certain procedures are specifically developed to correct typical male aesthetic needs. These may include:

 

Liposculpture

Men may develop stubborn fat pockets in certain areas of the body, which can be addressed with liposculpture procedure. The procedure is ideal for individuals who have a moderate body weight and fairly elastic skin, but excess fat tissue in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, neck, cheeks, chin, upper arms, or buttocks.

 

Gynecomastia Surgery

Some men may develop excess tissue in the breast area, which is a condition known as gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts. Breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia may be performed to restore a more masculine contour. Gynecomastia corrective surgery should only be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon for safe and desirable results.

 

Subpectoral Implant Surgery

Subpectoral implants, commonly known as pec implants, are an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery procedure for men. Many men wish to develop the pectoralis major and minor muscles that build the male chest.

With supervised exercise and fitness techniques, it is possible to develop sufficient pec thickness and fullness. However, achieving the right size and definition may not be easy. This is where pec implant surgery can help, which will involve placing the implants under the pec major muscle.

shutterstock_117177337 Lip Augmentation and Enhancement Procedure Rancho Mirage | Palm SpringsLip Augmentation and Enhancement Procedure

Lip Augmentation or Lip enhancement is a form, and sub-type of plastic surgery. This particular form of surgery falls under the larger domain of plastic surgery, but is technically called cosmetic surgery. It is the aesthetic re-structuring of the lips in order to make it more enhanced and supposedly attractive. People generally undergo surgical procedures to gain a perfectly structured pair of lips. The procedure of lip augmentation renders the lips fuller, and supple which is considered to represent the pinnacle of beauty and fertility in most cultures.

Juvederm

In the process of lip augmentation, a cosmetic surgeon typically injects a fluidic substance into the lips, enlarging them in size. The fluidic substance injected into the lips is a type of hyaluronic acid. Specifically Juvederm and Restylane, are the types of acid that are recently the craze amongst cosmetic surgeons for lip enhancements. This process is highly sought after by consumers looking to undergo lip enhancement procedures. It is especially true of the North American market.

Medical clinics, commonly known as medical spas, or aesthetic spas such as Dr. Suzanne Quardt or ‘Dr. Q’ from Dr. Q plastic surgery in Palm Springs, Palm Desert , Rancho Mirage cater to exactly these needs.

Juvederm is the most commonly used fluidic lip implant in North America for the purpose of lip augmentation. The reason behind this is because the implant allows for a more natural look and feel to the consumer. Additionally Juvederm has proven to be completely innocuous to the patients’ general health and well-being. Speech impediments have occurred in the past with other forms of implants like silicone, however, it hasn’t occurred so far in the case of Juvederm.

In the case of Juvederm used as a filler, the process takes about half an hour until completion. During the process, a cosmetic surgeon may inject the filler equally and strategically in properly measured points on the persons lip. This would fill up the lip equally so it may avoid an uneven structure.

The major advantage of a filler or injection is that it is painless as most of the time the filler that is injected acts as a local numbing agent too. This means that there isn’t a need for any additional injections or anesthesia during the process. There is however, a numbing cream applied on the surface of the lips in order to avoid any pain. This is more of a contingency measure.

Another added advantage of juvederm over silicone implants is the fact that there is absolutely no surgical process required. It is very basic, and the implants last between 6 months to over a year depending on various physical factors of the person.

The recovery period for this procedure takes less than 24 hours. However, the time taken for a final and best result of the procedure takes upto a week. Ice packs applied to the lip as frequently as possible hastens the recovery process and enables a better looking result.

Kybella-Injections-for-Double-Chin-Reduction-Before-After-Photo More Men Seeking Non-Surgical Double Chin Reduction Rancho Mirage | Palm Springs

More Men Seeking Non-Surgical Double Chin Reduction

One of the common aesthetic concerns among men is the appearance of double chin, which may occur due to genetic factors, overweight or obesity, or other reasons. While liposuction surgery is an established and proven solution to address this problem, but many men are keen to avoid surgical options, particularly when they have a busy corporate job or business. Men are more likely to choose a non-surgical treatment for double chin.

With the introduction of a new, cutting edge non-surgical procedure called Kybella, it is now possible to reduce excess submental fat or double chin appearance without surgery. Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q), provides Kybella treatment for both men and women. Kybella has earned the distinction of being the first and only injectable treatment that has been approved by the FDA for double chin reduction. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.

Suitable Male Candidates

Contrary to popular perception, men are likely to feel almost equally unhappy as women with the poor facial aesthetics caused due to the appearance of a double chin. Prolonged downtime and potential risks involved in a surgical procedure may deter many busy men from seeking a solution. This is where Kybella med spa procedure can serve as an effective, non-surgical alternative to reduce unwanted submental fat tissue.

The treatment provider will try to ensure that the male candidate should have a stable body weight before recommending Kybella injectable solution. Accumulated, stubborn fat tissue in the area below the chin is hard to eliminate with diet or exercise. Therefore, Kybella injections can help achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals without surgery.

Dr. Q Medical Spa is a leading facility offering the latest range of non-invasive procedures, including Kybella injections. Patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive Kybella and other treatments at the medical spa.

Facial Procedures

Kybella Popularity among Men

In a normal situation, only about one in ten patients is keen to seek an aesthetic procedure at a cosmetic surgery office, and the remaining patients are women. However, this pattern seems to be changing dramatically at least with respect to Kybella procedure. As many as half of the patients seeking Kybella injectable solution at a cosmetic surgery practice may be males. On some days, the number of male visitors seeking Kybella may even surpass that of females.

Challenges for Men in Suits

A majority of men working in various professions or businesses are expected to follow the norm of a formal wear at work. However, those men who have a double chin may find it uncomfortable to sustain with a formal suit and tie all day long.

It is easy to find corporate men trying to adjust their neck often while they are wearing a top-buttoned shirt and a necktie. As a result, a non-surgical treatment such as Kybella is proving to be a boon for such men, who are lining up to receive this solution in order to eliminate their double chin.

Kybella-Injections-for-Double-Chin-Reduction-Before-After-Photos FDA Approves Kybella Treatment for Fat below the Chin Rancho Mirage | Palm Springs

FDA Approves Kybella Treatment for Fat below the Chin

Excess fat deposits below the chin can give an unsightly appearance of double chin. Liposuction cosmetic surgery is usually recommended to treat this condition, but some patients may be reluctant to choose an elective surgery procedure. For all such patients, a new and revolutionary non-surgical treatment called Kybella is now available.

Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) is a leading plastic surgeon providing state of the art surgical and as well as non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Dr. Q offers cutting edge injectable solution called Kybella to address stubborn fat pockets below the chin. She receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.

Facial Procedures

FDA Approval

The US Food and Drug Administration has recently given its approval to Kybella for the treatment of moderate to severe fat tissue below the chin, which is called submental fat. This makes Kybella the first and only injectable treatment for submental fat to receive the FDA approval. Kybella is exclusively created to reduce fats in the submental area only.

Extensive tests and trials have been conducted to determine the safety and efficacy of Kybella for fat reduction under the chin. Excellent test results as well as positive patient feedback have encouraged leading cosmetic surgeons such as Dr. Q to offer Kybella non-surgical alternative.

How does it Work?

Kybella is based on deoxycholic acid that is naturally produced in the human body. This substance is designed to help the body absorb fats. When Kybella is injected into the submental fat tissue, it causes the physical destruction of the cell membrane. With this treatment, the unwanted fat cells are eliminated.

If injected wrongly, it may cause undesirable destruction of healthy skin cells. Therefore, it is important to choose a trained and experienced treatment provider for Kybella. Dr. Q Medical Spa and plastic surgery practice are equipped to provide this treatment to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas.

Dr. Q’s Photo Gallery

Choosing an Expert

For an advanced injectable procedure such as Kybella, it is very important to receive the injections only from a recognized and certified expert. According to Amy G. Egan, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of the Office of Drug Evaluation III in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Kybella treatment should only be provided by licensed healthcare professionals.

At the same time, the patients should be fully aware of the potential risks associated with the use of the drug. Egan says that it is important to remember that Kybella is only approved for the treatment of submental fat, and whether it is suitable for other areas of the body is not yet known.

Treatment Protocol

Kybella is administered in the injection form directly into the fat tissue below the chin. Patients can receive multiple injections in a single treatment session. Up to six treatments may be received by a patient, but treatment sessions should be spaced at least a month apart. Kybella drug is currently available in single patient use vials, and it must not be mixed or diluted with any other compounds that are on the market.
