Laser surgery remove fat

Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery remove fat


Avatar n tn I was injured, which was one reason for the replacement surgery. The second reason I had the surgery was because of advanced avascular necrosis of my TMJ's. One question I have is this, "Is it possible that avascular necrosis spreads...even though the joint was removed during the replacement surgery"? The second question I have is this, "Is it possible that (from replacement surgery) a person could have a bone infection"?
Avatar f tn Three months ago today I had mid face, lower face, brow lift, and lower cosmetic eye surgery to remove a little fat and skin. The mid facelift and brow lift was done with endotines which I can still feel in cheeks and hairline. My problem has been with under eye blesphaplasty. I have a hard lump under left eye which appeared a few weeks ago. I massage daily but has not helped. The irony is immediately after the surgery, my right under eye area was the problem.
Avatar n tn I eventually became tired of this method so I went to a surgeon so he could surgically remove it, hoping I would no longer have problems with it so he did the surgery & within 6 months, it would still leak, not sure what since he removed the cyst, I'm guessing the cut? So I went back & he said that was ok & put me on antibiotics & gave me some cream to put on it so that did help for a while but to this day, almost 2 years later, I still have problems with that same boil/abscess!
Avatar n tn To help your gallbladder and to hopefully prevent surgery (if possible), one needs to cut fat as much as possible from their diet, also eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day will help. Should you be absolutely craving a particular fatty food and just HAVE to have it, maybe you could eat it on an empty stomach and only a small amount of the fatty food.
177275 tn?1511758844 It does refer to surgery to remove pinguecula, thick tenon fascia or fat from the eye surface just to improve cosmetic appearance. Technically this is called "regional conjunctivectomy with or without post operative injection of mitomycin and/or bevacizumab". A recent report (2013) in the American Journal of Ophthalmology of 557 people having this surgery found 70% post operative complications of which 34% were severe.

Avatar n tn I had surgery (laproscopic) on 12/28 to remove both ovaries and the 2 cm cysts on them. The path report finally came back a couple of days ago and the tumors turned out to be benign...thank God! My surgery was outpatient....I was home the evening of surgery. I had previously found that morphine doesn't touch pain for me and maybe this is why they did an epidural/spinal block. I only took pain pills for 24 hours after getting home.
Avatar n tn I had spinal fusion on my L5 5 weeks ago, and i am now hurting now more then i ever did before surgery. My Doc said he had the surgery and was back to work in 2 weeks. At 2weeks for me i was hurting so bad i thought i had messed up my fusion. So i went to see my my doc and had an xray and was told it was fine. He gave me a RX and said it was my last one. So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery.
Avatar f tn I regret having my surgery - I insisted with my surgeon that I wanted the gallstones to be treated with laser but he said that is not done anymore. I really didn't want the surgery but I had no choice as my gallbladder had become infected and required hospital stays.
Avatar n tn I heard from Tammylin that she was in the trial and has pain again, possibly because doc did not remove all spurs when he did the surgery. I am having it done soon, my doc happened to be one doing it, or I would not have known about it! If your doc doesn't do it, he will probably recommend what he is familiar with. Also, the same company is now working on multiple levels.
Avatar f tn The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser).I sincerely suggest you to consult a dermatologist/cosmetologist and discuss these treatment options with him. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how your mother is doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
Avatar n tn 1. check your blood cholesterol. Its often high. Sometimes if you get blood fats (lipids) really low the skin xanthalasma get better. Removal involves "invasive" surgery.
Avatar n tn The ultrapulsed carbon dioxide laser and erbium YAG laser are most frequently used in laser resurfacing. Because the skin is injured and tissue exposed as an effect wound care and infection prevention is important. Non-ablative lasers, on the other hand, trigger changes within the dermis without injuring the epidermis. Smoothbeam targets and heats the sebaceous gland, helping reduce sebum and acne formation. Another option is the yellow pulse dye laser.
Avatar n tn While Smartlipo damages fat cells, it always requires standard liposuction to remove the damaged fat as well as any additonal fat. If you are not satisfied with the results of the procedure, have a frank discussion with your surgeon in several months to determine if additional surgery will be required to improve your situation.
Avatar n tn my problem is i use to weight about 225 pounds and i managed to lose the weight, and i have alot of skin with a thin layer of fat under it, about 1/2 inch to an 1 inch, is there a way to lose fat fat without having to buy expensive supplements, and after i lose this extra fat what about the extra skin i still have. is there a way to lose it or tighten it without paying tons of cash?
Avatar f tn The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn DEAR DR'S, I had a nose tumor on my left side of my face which it was remove and by removing the tumor the fat under the eye was removed also, causing my left eye falling in,so my left eye is smaller than my right eye.I had reconstructive surgery for my left eye,which my doctor put a implant under the eye,the implant is to push the eye out,but not enough to match my right eye,my doctor said he can't push the eye out more because its to much pressure and can damage my eye vision permanently.
Avatar m tn thanks for the feedback, i'm a little puzzled about something due to the surgery part, you might have an answer. well, i've read that surgery is to remove the fat in the under eyes but does it also remove the dark circles or the darkness will remain there after the fat is removed?
Avatar f tn such a shame that plastic surgeon can turn man in to woman and vice verse but can not remove chicken pox scars. shame on surgery. my daugter spend thousand doing microderma laser message radio frequency with top esthetic surgeon and dermatologist but all say one thing that they can not do anything fro chicken pox scars and that is after charging thousands of pound. any one know why ?
Avatar n tn You can't remove these without some form of surgery, which I emphatically do not recommend, because there's no way to remove them without scarring, and besides, they would just come back. You will, I think, need to come to terms with your having these, as many men do, and ignore them, because they have no significance. It isn't worth it, in my opinion, for you to spend any money, much or little, in a futile attempt to do what cannot and doesn't need to be done. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn Don't be scared, just try not to eat anything with fat in it until your surgery. Without fat there is nothing to make the stones. hope that helped:) Good Luck!
Avatar n tn I had laser surgery a few times in 1997. In 2001 I got micro-droplet silicone inject. by Dr. Orientreich in New York (who invented it I believe), but I only did it once, so I wasn't alot of silicone(> 1 cc). Now for my question...Over the past 2-3 years I have noticed a small area near my nose on my cheek that is slightly raised outwards (maybe 3/4 in in length and 1/8 in.
Avatar m tn I was very sick. After the surgery I actually felt great. I had laser surgery and only 4 little cuts. All my sickness went away immediately afterwards. It's worth it.
Avatar f tn Discovered in Germany. Polymethylmethacrylate micro beads. Spreads out below dermis in fat. Is permanent and hard to remove if nodules form Cost $400 per injection site. Allergy testing not known. Will not ever be approved in US.
Avatar n tn The residual 'bumps' above each nipple could be due to any number of minor post-op problems including reaction to an underlying suture (suture granuloma) or a small area of dead fat with surround scar tissue formation (fat necrosis). In either case, if the problem does not resolve, exploration and removal would be appropriate and likely a minor procedure. I do not know what the cause of your periumbilical discomfort following a tummy tuck.
Avatar n tn I heard people talking about how laser surgery can help remove them, and I was wondering how much it costs. I don't think Ican go through life trying to hide my body under long pants and shirts, but I am to embarrassed to tell my mom and father.
Avatar n tn laser angio is like a cath instead of stenting or angio they use a laser to remove the plaque that has built up in the artery. they say its a better way to go so i am with my doctor in finding the closet place to go. thats what he now recommends. i see the university of maryland offers it. i have called for appointment to have this done. i am tired of the pain and discomfort. good luck to you.
Avatar f tn After unsuccessfully trying to tone my stomach, having pain, mostly on the right side where my gallbladder scars are, and meeting nothing but more instructions to 'stick with my diet, keep doing the ab exercises, there can't be anything else wrong' attitude, I went to see about laser lipo. I was astonished when the dr. informed me he couldn't help me, the fat on my abdomen was so minimal he couldn't perform the surgery.
Avatar f tn If I look at faces, they look shrunken and blurred. I am not able to read with my left at all anymore. I had cataract surgery with piggyback and second IOL was placed flipped, last Ocotber. In April another doctor did microsurgery to remove the two previous lenses and replace with one good lense. I had very good vision distance and reading following the correction. Is it possible after this amount of time that the blurriness will dissapate. I just don't know what to do.
