Vaginal Rejuvenation & Labiaplasty
What is a Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Women who are bothered with large or asymmetric labia of their vagina can now have labia surgery to reduce the outward appearance of the labia and correct the misshapenness or irregularity. Some women are simply uncomfortable with their enlarged labia, which can lead to discomfort with wearing clothing, performing certain exercises or even during sex. The enlarged labia can have a protuberant and abnormal appearance leading to self-consciousness. Dr. Monasebian performs this labia reduction surgery (labiaplasty) in the convenience of his office procedure room with very little downtime or post-operative discomfort. Dr. Monasebian utilizes his skill as a Plastic Surgeon to reduce and reshape the labia minora to a thinner and more comfortable shape and appearance. The natural contours, pigmentations and sensations are preserved. As with all his aesthetic surgeries, Dr. Monasebian customizes the surgical procedure to the individual needs and expectations of the patient. These are discussed thoroughly in length during the pre-operative consultation. Due to the personal nature of this area, Dr. Monasebian wishes to review these photographs in the presence of the patient.
Body Lifting & Contouring
What are the Different Kinds of Body Contouring?
Body contouring after weight loss surgery can help reduce excess skin and fat, and also restore tightness and elasticity to the skin. After major weight loss, certain areas of your body may sag and appear misshapen, masking the changes your weight loss has provided. These areas, such as the face, neck, arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks and thighs, can be easily improved through multiple procedures that will lift and sculpt your new and improved body. Known as a body lift when combined together, you can pick and choose which procedures you would like to help achieve the look you desire.
Many people have second thoughts about their tattoos. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with your decision forever. Highly precise lasers can lighten or remove your tattoo by focusing or pulsing light on the ink particles, which then convert the energy to heat and break up into tiny pieces that are absorbed harmlessly by the body. All this can be accomplished without damaging the surrounding tissue. Results can generally be seen within a few weeks, although larger and darker tattoos may require more treatments than smaller, lighter ones. Occasionally treated skin will look whiter (paler) than the skin around it, but this is usually temporary and fades in the months following treatment.
Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands. There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the face and is less noticeable). The effectiveness of scar reduction depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the injury, your body’s healing mechanism, the size and depth of the wound, how much blood supplies the area and the thickness and color of your skin.
