Dr. Wigoda Shares How to Be a Smart Plastic Surgery Patient

In this video, Ft. Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Wigoda explains how to be a smart plastic surgery patient and why you want to be one of the smarter patients. Hint: They do their research, ask a lot of questions, and pick plastic surgeons with the right credentials and experience.

 

 

With people opting for bargain surgeries and shopping for plastic surgeons the way they shop for clothes, they are taking a huge risk and possibly sacrificing the quality of their results and then some. Smart plastic surgery patients can be financially-savvy and still see great results; they just have to do their homework.

 

You want to be one of the smarter patients because while there are many thousands of happy patients there are also many who are unhappy. They may have had bad results, complications, chronic pain or unrealistic expectations. Remember, plastic surgery is real surgery. If you gave up quality for cost then you may even end up spending more in the long run because they have to miss more work for recovery time, end up being hospitalized or have a plastic surgery nightmare and need to do another surgery to correct the original procedure. You are making an investment in yourself and want that investment to pay off.

Be a smart plastic surgery patient by:

  • Asking a lot of questions

  • Having realistic expectations about results

  • Understanding what recovery will be like

When picking your plastic surgeon, make sure they have:

  • The right credentials and experience

  • Time to spend with you before and after surgery

  • Can make independent decisions regarding future care without having to ask for permission

Are you interested in having the best results possible? Join the smartest patients and take your time to do your research and make a well-informed decision! Start today by seeing how Dr. Wigoda compares to other surgeons!

 

Dr Wigoda on The Incision Decision: Choosing an Incision Location for Your Breast Implants

incision decisions

The location of your incision is one of the many options you will discuss with Dr. Wigoda during your preoperative consultation. Each incision location option has its pro’s and con’s, such as scarring, and there is not one location that is considered best for everyone. Here are the options:

1) Inframammary Incision

Inframammary incisions are placed underneath the breast just slightly above where the breast meets the rib cage. Many surgeons like this incision location as it allows them easy access to create an implant pocket above or under the muscle.

This direct access allows Dr. Wigoda to use very small incisions with saline implants, generally as small as 1 to 1.5 inches wide for saline implants and slightly larger incisions for silicone. The scar is typically not visible when standing up as the breast will cover it. This is the most common incision site used.

2) Transumbilical Incision or TUBA

A Transumbilical incision is a C or J shaped incision placed in the folds of your belly button. A small camera is used to negotiated the surgery and very small instruments are then inserted to create a path to the breasts. Tissue expanders are inserted to create the implant pocket. Using a TUBA incision, implants can be placed over or under the muscle.

While TUBA incisions have the advantage of there being no scarring on the breast area, there are many potential disadvantages. Only saline implants can be used if TUBA is selected as silicone implants will not fit through the very small incision. This is the least popular incision used.

3) Transaxillary Incision (Armpit)

These incisions are created in the armpits and are generally 1 to 2 inches long. A short path is then created to the breasts where the implants will be placed. While there is no scar on the breast, a scar will be visible in the armpit with the arm is raised. There is also a risk of injury to a sensory nerve that can cause numbness on the inner arm.

4) Periareolar Incisions

The Periareolar incision is created around the areola. This incision is commonly used if other cosmetic breast procedures such as breast lift or areola reduction are being performed in conjunction with breast augmentation. Contrary to popular belief the periareolar incision does not necessarily increase the risk of losing sensation in the nipple.

There is, however, potentially a greater risk of infection as bacteria is found in milk ducts and often these ducts are cut during the procedure. If you plan to breastfeed after your surgery should make sure to discuss this with Dr. Wigoda because periareolar incisions may not be right for you.

After careful consideration, Dr. Wigoda will help you decide the right incision type for you. His extensive experience will guarantee you make the right incision decision. Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Fort Lauderdale-based plastic surgery center offers all four incision sites and we are happy to help you decide what’s best for you during a free consultation.  Call us at 954.463.7088 or visit us at www.drwigoda.com to schedule your visit!

Dr. Paul Wigoda Reports Silicone Breast Implants Grow 72% in 2012

Faces are lifting, silicone breast implants are IN, skin is smoothing, Botox is booming and tummy tucking is far from flat, growing 70% in the last 12 years. The biggest bump Dr. Paul Wigoda noticed was the fact that 72% of breast implant surgeries in the United States used silicone implants; 28% used saline or sterile salt water implants.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has just released their 2012 annual statistics reporting the number and variety of plastic surgery procedures that were performed last year. The report, a virtual “state of the union” for plastic surgery profession, provides us with several interesting insights into trends in plastic surgery for the year.

“The fact that total U.S. cosmetic procedures were up last year is not surprising given that the economy is beginning to bounce back and these procedures are high on many people’s list of things to do with the extra income they are seeing.” says Dr. Paul Wigoda. Check the infographic below for increases in cosmetic procedures in relation to other important economic indicators, also on the rise.


Overall, cosmetic procedures in total were up a whopping 5%! The most popular procedures by volume were breast augmentation with 286,274 performed in 2012, followed by nose reshaping (242,684), eyelid surgery (204,015), liposuction (202,128), facelift (126,320) and tummy tuck (106,628).

Faces Lifting!

The biggest bump last year came in the form of facial rejuvenation procedures.

Here are some highlights:

 

  • Facelifts up by 6% from 2011

  • Eyelid Surgery up 4%

  • Microdermabrasion up 8% with 973,556 performed

  • Soft Tissue Fillers up by 5% with 1,988,767 performed

  • Botox and Dysport up 8% with 6,134,631 performed

Why so much focus on the face? The ASPS suggests “one has to assume that economic recovery and consumer confidence plays an important role… Another factor is people entering or re-entering the workforce at an older age, needing to compete with younger applicants. Having our appearance look as good as our experience and resumes… is a strong motivation.”

Other Notable Performers Include:

  • Breast Augmentation, up 35% from 2000

  • Calf Augmentation up 8% from 2011

  • Pectoral Implants up 6%

  • Upper Arm Lift up 3%

  • Tummy Tuck up 70% from 2000

Male Surgeries on the Rise

A clear indicator of the increase in male surgeries is in the treatment of male breast development or gynecomastia with an increase of 5% over last year. Says Dr. Paul Wigoda, “We have seen a marked increase in male procedures over the past several years, especially last year. Not just for gynecomastia but for facelift, eyelid lifts, pectoral augmentation, dermabrasion and nose reshaping. Plastic surgery is definitely no longer just for women.”

All in all, the ASPS reports prove that the state of the plastic surgery profession is very promising with further increases projected for next year. So, if you’ve been waiting for an economic turnaround to plan a cosmetic procedure, the time to schedule it is officially now. Come in for a free consultation with Dr. Wigoda and celebrate our improved economy!



Dr. Wigoda Reports Tummy Tuck and Weight Loss Results Post Surgery

Tummy Tuck surgery at Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Fort Lauderdale plastic surgery center is  a popular request. One concern for patients undergoing this procedure is that they will gain weight after the surgery. A recent study on Tummy Tuck and weight loss confirms that weight gain after surgery is not typical and that most patients not only lose weight but maintain the weight loss. The study by ASPS Member Surgeon Dr. Rex Edward Moulton-Barrett of Alameda Hospital and colleagues just released in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, reveals that undergoing abdominoplasty (“Tummy Tuck”) may lead to significant and lasting weight loss for many patients.

“We’ve always seen outstanding long-term results with our abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) patients but this new study proves what we have suspected for years. This is very exciting news,” says Dr. Paul Wigoda of Fort Lauderdale.

The Tummy Tuck Study

The Tummy Tuck study included 20 women and the average amount of abdominal tissue resected was approximately five pounds. A year later, the Tummy Tuck  study found that 14 of those women, a large majority, kept the weight off and had even achieved additional weight loss. In fact, their weight loss was greater than the weight of the tissue resected. Tummy Tuck patients with a preoperative body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 24.5, borderline overweight, maintained long-term weight loss after one year. In fact, their weight decreased an average of 4.5% of their original BMI. (Note that a normal BMI is between 18.5 and 25, between 25 and 30 is classified as overweight, and over 30 is obese).

The tummy tuck study found that long-term weight loss was more likely for women whose initial BMI was 24.5 or greater, that is, just under the borderline for overweight. Of the 14 women with sustained weight loss, just one had an initial BMI of less than 24.5. In addition, it was found that long-term weight loss was more likely for women with a greater amount of excess abdominal tissue removed at abdominoplasty. Twelve of the 14 women who enjoyed long-term weight loss had more than 4.5 pounds of tissue resected.

Dr. Wigoda Shares it How it Works

The tummy tuck study points to Increased satiety or the “feeling of being full” as a important contributor to long-term weight loss. Three-fourths of women reported an increased feeling of satiety, either after eating or throughout the day, after undergoing their abdominoplasty. “We hypothesize that the increased satiety [experienced by] our patients is related to changes in the neuroendocrine system,” said Dr. Moulton-Barrett and his co-authors. The tummy tuck  theory is that removing fat cells from the abdomen could lead to reduced levels of hormones affecting appetite, which are secreted by fatty tissues.

“This is great news for women considering abdominoplasty but fear they are destined to regain weight immediately after the procedure,” says Dr. Wigoda. “I have seen incredible sustained results in my practice and look forward to the science continuing to prove them out.”

Breast Implant Position – Over or Under the Pectoralis Muscle? Which is right for you?

“The placement of the breast implant is one of the key decisions to discuss with your plastic surgeon. While most patients in my practice have the implant placed under the muscle, there are cases where over the muscle may be beneficial,” says Dr. Paul Wigoda.

Take a moment to look at the diagram below to see the size and location of the muscles that make up your chest wall. You will notice that the pectoralis major muscle is a large fan-shaped muscle that does not cover the lower, outer aspect of your chest wall. Generally in breast augmentation surgery the pectoralis major muscle will be detached from its lower origin along the ribs and the implant will be placed under it leaving only about half the implant covered by the muscle. The bigger the implant, the less of it that is covered by the muscle.

 

The pectoralis minor muscle is much smaller and lies under the outer edge of the pectoralis major. The serratus muscle lies along the sides of your chest wall. The main sensory nerves to your breast come up between the slips of this muscle to enter the back of your breast tissue and from there to the rest of your breast. Generally surgeons place the implants on top of the pectoralis minor and serratus muscles, but below the pectoralis major muscles.

There are pro’s and con’s to having your implants placed over or below the muscle. Here are some things to consider:

Over the Muscle (Subglandular) Breast Implant Placement:

  • Pros: When textured implants are used, the capsular contracture rate is only 5–10%. If you have a moderate amount of breast tissue (a B cup or larger), this can be an excellent choice and produce very natural-looking breasts that age very well. Also, recovery is usually easier than when the implants are placed in a submuscular position.

  • Cons: The use of smooth implants in a subglandular position have an increased rate of capsular contracture compared to other options. Additionally, when textured implants are used in thinner women with small breasts rippling may be visible in the upper and inner areas. It is also easier to see the upper edges of the implants when they are placed over the muscle.

Under the Muscle (Subpectoral) Breast Implant Placement:

  • Pros: Using smooth implants under the pectoralis muscles reduces the capsular contracture rate to less than 10%. In thinner women, the added bulk of the muscle over the upper and inner aspects of the implants will make the edges less visible and the curve of the breast more natural. When textured implants are used, the rippling in the areas under the muscle is usually invisible.

  • Cons: The recovery is typically thought to be more uncomfortable. However, with Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implant procedure, patients most often have implants placed below the muscle and have little or no pain. It can take several months to see your end results because the implant tends to start out high before it settles into its final position, lower on the chest. When the pectoralis muscle is contracted during exercise or in some daily movements, the muscle may flatten the implants and push them outward. This can change the shape of the breast. However, this does not happen in all patients. Occasionally, an indentation over the implant can be seen along the edge of the muscle but again, this is not typical. When there is a moderate amount of breast tissue that is lax or becomes lax in time, it may sag below the position of the implant that is held in place by the muscle.

Choosing Breast Implant Shapes and Textures With Dr. Paul Wigoda

Round, Teardrop, Smooth or Textured? Breast augmentation was the #1 cosmetic surgical procedure in 2012 , with almost 300,000 breast augmentations being performed last year in the United States. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 Statistics). Dr. Paul Wigoda points out to his patients that breast implants come in many different sizes and shapes.

Round or Teardrop Shape?

Breast implants come in two shapes: round and teardrop. Which is right for you? Well, it depends. Here are some considerations to help you decide.


Teardrop Implants:

Teardrop implants also known as “anatomical” are contoured and shaped just like a natural breast. It takes a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon to ensure they are properly placed. Dr. Wigoda has extensive experience with teardrop implants. At your consultation, Dr. Wigoda will discuss your options with you, including the use of anatomical implants. Anatomical implants are always textured to minimize their movement and decrease the risk of the implant rotating.

Round Implants:

Round implants will give you that “Victoria Secret” look. They less natural looking than teardrop shaped implants but can deliver a higher impact result. Round implants are currently the most common implants as they give women the most lift, fullness, and cleavage many of us are looking for. Also, certain types of round implants will enhance the forward projection of your breasts. Keep in mind that women with large implants often report that others ‘know’ they have had breast augmentation. For most women, these days, this is not a concern. It all depends on you!

Smooth or Textured?

Breast implants are available in two surface choices: smooth and textured. Smooth breast implants feel like the outside of a balloon. Textured implants feel somewhat like sandpaper. Which is right for you? Below we will discuss some considerations to help you make your choice.

Smooth Breast Implants: Smooth breast implants are used in most breast augmentation procedures. Smooth implants move freely within the breast pocket and have thinner shells making them softer than textured implants. Smooth implants may be less likely to ripple than textured implants. Other benefits of smooth implants include lower cost and increased implant longevity.



Textured Breast Implants: Textured implants have been designed to limit the risk of capsular contracture, an implant complication involving scar tissue growing around the implant. However, this claim has not been conclusively proven. However, textured implants do create cohesion between the implant and surrounding tissue reducing the risk of the implant moving. Textured breast implants have been associated with a higher rate of leaking and breast rippling than smooth implants; however, textured implants have also been shown to decrease the risk of displacement.

During your consultation, Dr. Wigoda will help you determine which shape and texture implant is right for you by closely listening to your desired results. He will show you a numerous before and after photos of women who have opted for either round or teardrop implants to help you decide, and discuss the pro’s and con’s of smooth and textured implants in detail.

At the end of the day, only you and your doctor can choose the right type of implants for you. Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Fort Lauderdale-based plastic surgery center offers both teardrop and round implants and we are happy to help you decide what’s best for you during a free consultation.  Call us at 954.463.7088 to schedule your visit!

Ringing in the New Year for a New You with Plastic Surgery from Ft Lauderdale’s Dr. Wigoda

Deck the halls with plastic surgery in South Florida – another year in the books and time to start formulating our New Year’s resolutions. Where did the time go? It’s 2013…and counting! Another year passes, so the inevitable aging process continues to be a damper on our Champagne toasts, if we can even stay up past midnight to be with friends or watch the ball drop on TV (R.I.P.  to the ageless Dick Clark, presumably a loyal cosmetic surgery enthusiast).
Every January, we hear it’s time to start focusing on a New Year, a New You. These days, it’s become commonplace to develop a “New You” through plastic surgery. Will we enroll in a gym membership? Start that infamous diet? Quit smoking? Well, whatever the case, we are seeking ways to improve our look and feel better and younger in the New Year.  Locally in South Florida, hundreds of patients are turning to the personal care and professionalism of Dr. Paul Wigoda.
http://www.drwigoda.com/

Whether we have the time and wherewithal to undergo a surgery like breast augmentation, facelifts or liposuction or we opt for non-invasive procedures like Botox or laser hair removal, there are numerous safe and affordable options to give us a better look and freshen up for another year ahead.

The holidays are ideal for undergoing cosmetic surgery for several reasons. Many have vacation time from work and thus can afford to take a few weeks for the procedure and recovery. People like to heal outside the public eye and often undergo plastic surgery over the holidays to fly under the radar. People spend money in December on friends and family, yet oftentimes, opt to treat themselves. In the short term, we strive to look good for that New Year’s Party or kick off the New Year fresh and rejuvenated; therefore, plastic surgery and self-improvement procedures often double or triple around the holidays.

For instance, Botox can take years off your life in a matter of days.  Some patients have confessed to scheduling procedures in December due to their health insurance policy’s deductible being met and if a particular elective procedure is covered, what a great way to round out the year! Besides, some of those “run of the mill” New Year’s resolutions are all good preparation for cosmetic surgery procedures. Excess weight loss is a common goal, but skin can only be stretched so far or we can only control so much, so liposuction or facelifts have optimal results if weight loss is already underway. The sooner one weans down on the cigarettes, the less dehydration to the skin and the safer and better the outcome and the faster healing and less scarring from a cosmetic procedure.

Surgical procedures can change one’s life and transform a whole new you, but a facelift or tummy tuck takes time to heal so the holiday season avails a couple weeks away from co-workers or the social scene. Anti-aging skincare regimens are a less-invasive popular trend, especially given today’s stress of the economy, raising a family and trying to maintain an active lifestyle. “Beauty is in the details” and with today’s technology, it makes sense to minimize our wrinkles and rejuvenate our skin with image-enhancing fillers, Botox and dermabrasion. Then give those lips a boost just in time for that kiss under the mistletoe with Injectable fillers.

Ft Lauderdale Plastic Surgeon Says Botox in Men Up 258% Over Ten Years

The frown lines of the economy are showing and causing men on Wall Street to do more shots, of Botox that is, notes Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda.

Botox injections in men were up 8% last year, accounting for over 363,000 procedures and up a staggering 258% over ten years. Men feel Botox not only helps them appeal younger and refreshed, but can also remove forehead wrinkles to appear friendlier and less angry. Most common surgical procedures among men are gynecomastia, liposuction and face lifts.

When we hear Wall Street today, we think of a society of hectic jobs and high stress. Our faces are visible evidence of the stress lines and worry wrinkles that coincide with an intense, fast-paced work environment. So it’s no surprise more and more men on Wall Street are using Botox.

Forced to work in a time of major financial crisis in Europe and a weak economy at home, men are aging, frustrated and stressed…and it shows. So who can blame them for wanting a little work done so they feel younger, fresher and ready for tomorrow?

Cosmetic surgery as a whole has been on the rise for decades, up 5% overall last year, according to The Guardian. Men accounted for 9% of plastic surgery last year. Botox is the most popular choice for men since it has minimal pain and complications and would not lead to long-term regret; however, surgical cosmetic procedures in men have increased year after year as well.

Not all men are ready to admit it, however. Although this may not come as a surprise, it indeed may be kept a secret among these men seeking facial enhancements. In an atmosphere flooded with scandal and bailouts, would cosmetic surgery really be frowned upon? A majority of the male workforce never would want their colleagues, clients or even friends and family to know they get Botox. Perhaps it’s an ego issue, a paranoid insecurity or a misled belief in the connotation that facial injections are only for women.

But it’s becoming quite the trend for these financiers and day traders to take a pit stop on their commute home for a visit to their plastic surgeon.

Emotions play a huge factor in our everyday world. It’s stressful enough trying to provide for a family and secure a good paying job. And since appearance is what we see in the mirror and express to those around us everyday, we strive for a refreshed look with Botox or a dermal filler. So although it may be hush-hush at home or around the workplace, cosmetic surgery is a quick, affordable way for these white-collar breadwinners to loosen up that collar, go under the knife or needle and freshen up for another day at the office.

Men across the country are working harder and aging faster. These men may be apprehensive at first and will want to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon they feel comfortable with and who will evaluate and recommend the optimal cosmetic procedures.
