Liposuction is a popular and highly effective procedure for body contouring and fat removal. The procedure is versatile, as it can treat many different parts of the body such as the stomach, thighs, hips, buttocks, cheeks, neck, back, arms and even the cheeks. There are various techniques that are available, each with their own set of pros and cons.
Speak with Dr. K at his office in the O.C. to determine how liposuction can help you. Generally, liposuction involves the use of a suction tube called a cannula that is inserted through a small incision. The cannula is connected to a suction device and may be assisted with a laser, heat, water or ultrasound system to remove fat. Liposuction is a good option for people who are already in good health; it should not be considered an alternative to healthy living and exercise.

Not everyone is born with full, luscious eyelashes. However, with the help of Latisse, a prescription treatment, you can have the stunning eyelashes you’ve always hoped for. A topical treatment that is applied once daily, Latisse can promote the growth and coloration of your eyelashes.
Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. K, who can walk you through the benefits of Latisse. It is important that you follow the directions of application carefully, though, because it is possible to unintentionally color the eyelids. Over the course of a few months, you will notice, fuller, thicker, darker lashes. Discontinuing treatment or application will cause your lashes to return to their previous form.

The ears are an important part of facial symmetry and your overall appearance. Overly large ears, protruding ears or deformities of the ear can significantly change your look. Especially in children, large, prominent ears can be a source of self-consciousness. Whatever the age or indication, there is likely an ear surgery technique that can help you.
Ear surgery techniques are tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient. For example, if there is trauma and reconstruction is needed, sutures may be the only technique. However, if there is resizing to be done with conditions like prominent ears or macrotia or microtia (large or small ears), incisions may be necessary in the cartilage. An evaluation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. K will help you determine what is right for you.

Women with excessively large breasts, a condition called macromastia or gigantomastia in the extreme case, may experience a variety of secondary health problems. Many women deal with back and neck pain, skin chaffing, severe sagging of the breast and even psychological depression. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that can reduce the size and weight of overly large breasts.
Breast reduction may involve incisions, liposuction or a combination of both. When only liposuction is involved, the procedure is called a lipectomy. A lipectomy is ideal for breast reduction when only a minor reduction in volume is needed. The procedure is also a good option if you are concerned about the scarring involved with surgery. Contact an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. K at his office in the O.C. if you would like to know more about which breast reduction procedures are available.

There are several kinds of operations that are available for breast reconstruction. Typically, there are procedures that involve implants, a transplant of your own tissue, or both. The ideal strategy will depend on your body type and the recommendations of a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr.K.
One of the techniques of breast reconstruction that involve transplanting your own tissue is called a TRAM flap reconstruction. Reconstruction that involves your own tissue is called autologous breast reconstruction. With the TRAM flap procedure, skin, muscle and fat tissue is removed from between your belly button and chest. The removed tissue is then used to reconstruct the breast. Consequently, the removal of tissue from the stomach area results in a tummy tuck.

Dieting, exercise and medically assisted weight loss result in many cases of extreme weight loss. With extreme weight loss, many people are left with sagging skin. The thigh lift, and by extension body lifts, is part of a set of cosmetic surgeries that enable patients to regain their proper body proportions. Procedures like a thigh lift remove and reshape the excess skin to properly fit the body.
When the body tissues change shape quickly, the skin’s natural elasticity sometimes fails to recover. Skin will sag differently for different people. For some, their concerns will be around the inner thigh area, which means a medial thigh lift is ideal for them. There are others who will be concerned about the sagging of their entire thigh area, meaning a spiral thigh lift may be right for you. Both are offered by the board-certified, experienced Dr. K, who can examine your body and make the appropriate recommendation.

A Brazilian butt lift is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure that takes aspects of the butt lift and combines them with fat removal and fat injection. In just a single procedure, a Brazilian butt lift can sculpt your body and add shape to your buttocks.
A Brazilian butt lift is simply a combination of techniques that remove unwanted fat from one area of the body and inject it into the buttocks. An ideal candidate will be in good health, struggle with fat in parts of the body, yet still has a flat buttocks.

Recovery is also noted to be shorter relative to using implants.
