Have you tried diet and exercise to get your fanny into shape? Are you not getting the results that you had hoped for? You may want to consider a Brazilian butt lift.

The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that offers a permanent solution to achieving more shapely buttocks.

This procedure is a specialized fat transfer procedure that improves the size and shape of the buttocks without the use of implants. Excess fat is removed from the abdomen, hips, lower back or thighs with liposuction, and then a portion of the fat is strategically injected into the buttocks.

Dr. McLain can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping you lose fat in common problem areas while enhancing the buttocks. The results can last for many years to come.

The shape and proportion of your buttocks are largely determined by genetics. Your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat will also influence the appearance of the lower body. While diet and exercise can help, many times you may still end up with flat buttocks. This is largely due to genetics.

Brazilian butt lift surgery can help overcome genetics and give you the shapely buttocks that you desire. The procedure will also help reshape surrounding areas such as the hips and lower back, and thighs.

You may consider Brazilian butt lift surgery to:

  • Make your clothes fit better
  • Reduce fat pockets on your hips, thighs, or belly
  • Enhance the curves of your lower body
  • Give a more youthful, shapely appearance to your lower body
  • Enhance your overall proportions

Despite its name, Brazilian butt lift surgery will not address saggy, excess skin on the buttocks or thighs. Dr. McLain will talk with you about adding thigh or buttock lift surgery to address these issues.

If you want to change the shape of your buttocks to have a more shapely figure, schedule a consultation with Dr. McLain. He will discuss all of your options as well as what you may expect your results to be with Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Skin Removal Surgery

Loose or hanging skin tissue can become bothersome for some people due to both cosmetic and physical reasons. You may experience discomfort, chafing, skin irritation, and frequent infections in areas where excess skin is present. You may consider a skin removal surgery to restore your attractive, youthful appearance, and obtain relief from physical discomfort.

Many people choose a skin removal cosmetic surgery after a massive weight loss or following multiple pregnancies or simply due to the aging process. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain provides skin removal surgery to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding communities.

Loose Skin Problems after Weight Loss

Following a bariatric surgery, you may be able to achieve a dramatic weight loss over a short period of time. However, your skin may have become inelastic or overstretch, and as a result, it will tend to appear droopy in certain areas that have deflated after weight loss. The abdomen, breasts, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms are commonly affected by this condition.

It can be difficult to eliminate this excess loose skin simply through diet and exercise. Fortunately, skin removal surgery is a time-tested and well-recognized cosmetic procedure to get rid of this problem and restore a tighter, smoother skin appearance.

Panniculectomy

Loose and excessive skin tissue in the lower abdominal area may sometimes begin to hang above the pubic line and even go up to the thighs. Panniculectomy is a skin removal procedure to reduce the pannus or hanging skin and restore a pleasing appearance. The procedure can be combined with tummy tuck, depending on your unique needs.

Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck cosmetic surgery is a popular procedure to remove sagging skin and tighten the underlying loose abdominal muscles. You can achieve a firm and youthful looking abdomen with this procedure. The location and length of the incision (the tummy tuck technique) will depend on the amount of loose skin to be removed. Raising of the belly button to a more youthful level may also be involved in this surgery.

Brachioplasty

Brachioplasty or arm lift cosmetic procedure is often a part of a comprehensive skin removal surgery. It will eliminate sagging skin from the underside of the upper arms. Your surgeon will create an incision across the bottom of your upper arm or within the underarm. This will be decided according to the amount of excess skin that must be removed. Your surgeon will firm up the supportive tissue and give shape to your arm contours through the incisions.

Thighplasty

A thigh lift or thighplasty procedure will remove excess skin and stubborn fat deposits to reshape, contour, and firm up the inner or outer thighs. A crescent shaped incision may be placed to remove sagging skin from your upper inner thighs. Based on your skin removal needs, your surgeon may also recommend a medial or lateral thigh lift, or a combination of different techniques.

Buttock Lift

Sagging or loose skin in your rear end can be successfully removed with a Brazilian butt lift or a traditional buttock lift surgery. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain receives patients from Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and nearby areas for skin removal surgery.

Laser Hair Removal | Huntsville Med Spa | Medical Spa | Plastic SurgeonThere are many ways to remove body hair, from waxing to threading to shaving. But laser hair removal is one of the few options that offers a more permanent approach to getting rid of unwanted body hair.

Laser hair removal works by sending the light of a laser through the pigment in the hair. It is more than just zapping unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure, which Dr. McLain is trained to perform.

There are some things you will have to do before undergoing laser hair removal, which Dr. McLain will discuss with you at your consultation. Some of these include the following:

  • Limit plucking, waxing and electrolysis for six weeks
  • Avoid sun exposure six weeks before and six weeks after the procedure

When you go in for your treatment, the hair will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin’s surface. Usually a topical numbing medicine is applied 20 to 30 minutes before the procedure to help with the sting of laser pulses.

The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness and location of the hair being treated as well as your skin color.

Lasers are useful for removing hair from the face, chin, arm, underarm, leg, bikini, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:

  • Speed: each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Small areas, such as the upper lip, can be treated in less than a minute.
  • Precision: lasers can target dark, coarse hairs while leaving surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Predictability: most patients have permanent hair loss after three to seven sessions.

In addition to clearer, smoother skin and permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal also can reduce in-grown hairs, which means less irritation of the skin.

Dr. McLain will discuss all of your best treatment options and tell you what to expect at your consultation.

Tummy Tuck with Liposuction | Huntsville Plastic Surgery | Scottsboro SurgeonAre diet and exercise not giving you the flat tummy that you would like to have? Then you may want to consider a tummy tuck.

Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, will flatten the abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles.   It is not the same as liposuction, although you may add the liposuction procedure to the tummy tuck surgery.

A tummy tuck will remove excess skin while tightening loose or separated abdominal muscles to give you a more smooth and toned physique. However, if you also have areas of stubborn fat, such as love handles, a tummy tuck alone is not likely to be the most effective option.

Liposuction, a body contouring procedure, uses suction to remove pockets of fat that are not responding to diet and exercise. While liposuction can get rid of love handles, back rolls and baby fat, it won’t address excess skin or muscle laxity, which often accompany a pregnancy or big weight loss.

So, to achieve your best look, combining the two procedures may be your best option. Dr. McLain will discuss your best options during your consultation.

There are benefits to adding liposuction to the tummy tuck including you will only need to schedule one surgery, and you will have only one recovery period.

Combining a tummy tuck with liposuction can maximize your body contouring results in a way that isn’t possible with either procedure on its own. Excess fat and loose skin often go hand in hand, so treating both of these cosmetic concerns at the same time is often the most efficient and effective approach.

Are you ready for a change to make you look and feel younger? Are there certain things about your face that you would like to change? Facial implants are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.

Facial implants, such as cheek and chin implants, are available in a variety of shapes and styles, and they are designed to restore contour and/or proportion to your face. As we age, we lose some of our fatty tissue, which causes the skin to sag, these implants can help restore fullness as well as contouring.

You may want to consider facial implants:

  • If you wish to enhance the definition and fullness of your cheeks or jawline
  • If you wish to correct facial asymmetry or deformities caused by an injury or congenital conditions.
  • If you have a weak or receding chin
  • If you wish to restore contouring to your facial structure after aging changes.

During your consultation, Dr. McLain will help you decide what is best for your facial structure and your ultimate goal with chin and/or cheek implants.  He and his staff will answer any questions you may have during your consultation and throughout the process.  If you think implants might be right for you, call McLain Surgical Arts to schedule your consultation.

Rhinoplasty: Improving the Look of Your Nose | Huntsville Cosmetic SurgeryRhinoplasty is commonly known as a nose job. It is a plastic surgery procedure for altering and reconstructing the nose.

There are two types of plastic surgery used in a rhinoplasty depending upon what is the ultimate goal and outcome that you would like:

  • Reconstructive surgery restores the form and functions of the nose.
  • Cosmetic surgery changes the appearance of the nose.

Rhinoplasty may enhance facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

Here are some things that rhinoplasty can treat:

  • Nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
  • Nose width at the bridge
  • Nasal tip that is enlarged, drooping or hooked
  • Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
  • Nasal asymmetry

Dr. McLain will examine your nose and your entire facial structure to help you determine the best course of action when you want to make cosmetic changes. The goal will be to create facial balance and correct proportion.

Rhinoplasty may also be used to correct a deviated septum. Dr. McLain will examine your nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing. A deviated septum is one of the most common causes of breathing impairment.

Should he determine that rhinoplasty can help with your breathing, Dr. McLain will adjust the nasal structure to produce better alignment, which will make breathing a lot easier.

At your consultation, Dr. McLain will discuss with you your goals and your overall health. He will also answer all of your questions as you consider whether rhinoplasty is right for you.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. As we age, the skin around our eyes may become saggy and droopy giving a tired appearance to the face causing one to look older than their years.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyes and surrounding area. The surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.

Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, blepharoplasty can improve the appearance for a more youthful, rested look.

As skin ages, it usually loses its elasticity. A lack of elasticity plus gravity causes skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids. On the lower eyelid, excess skin causes wrinkles and bulges. On the upper eyelids, extra skin can actually cause vision problems.

The best candidates for an eye lift are people who are in good health and who have a realistic idea of what they want. Most are 35 years or older, but if baggy or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may choose to have the procedure done earlier.

Here are some things that eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Excess skin that causes vision impairment
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that expose whiteness below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Because eyelids are part of the face, the appearance of a drooping upper lid may also be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and eyebrow.

If you are thinking of having eyelid surgery, whether to improve your overall appearance, or because sagging eyelids are causing vision problems, Dr. McLain will talk you through the process. At your consultation, he will discuss your goals, and he will help you achieve them.

Prosthodontics 

Prosthodontics involves the restoration of oral function, comfort, and aesthetics by placing artificial substitutes. A wide range of restorations such as fillings, crowns, veneers, dentures, bridges, and dental implants are a part of prosthodontic treatment.  

Your dentist will use these artificial materials to restore damaged teeth, anchor crowns/bridges/dentures with dental implants, replace missing teeth, improve oral aesthetics, and correct orofacial problems.  

Oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain provides oral surgery to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding communities.  

Restoration of Damaged Teeth 

ProsthodonticsTeeth can be damaged during the developmental process, or the damage may occur at a later stage due to caries, teeth grinding, trauma, failing restorations, tooth exposure to acidic substances or reduction of salivary flow. Complexity of each dental condition will vary, and may involve minor or comprehensive prosthodontic intervention to address the patient’s unique concerns.  

Replacement of Missing Teeth  

Missing teeth can be replacement with the help of a variety of prosthodontic treatment options. Depending on the patient’s needs and personal goals, the dentist may recommend a fixed bridge, dental implants, removable partial dentures, complete dentures, or a combination of treatment options.  

The key to success in these procedures is to choose an experienced dentist who can provide high quality prosthodontic care. The dentist should have a thorough understanding of the dental lab work, and engage closely with the lab technicians to make sure that the customized prosthesis in each case is well-fitting, comfortable, and aesthetically appealing for the patient. 

Dental Implants  

Dental implant surgery is the most effective way to replace a missing tooth. The results with implants are long lasting or even permanent, and the success rate of the implant procedure is very high as long as a skilled oral surgeon performs it.  

Implant placement does not involve adjacent teeth for support, which allows the dentist to restore a missing tooth without compromising the health of surrounding teeth. Results are sustainable and natural looking, and you will not have to undertake any significant or special care for your implant in the long run.  

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

An experienced oral surgeon will be able to ensure that whether you need a single tooth restoration or more extensive oral rehabilitation, the artificial components used in your treatment harmoniously blend with the surrounding oral environment. In that sense, prosthodontic treatment and aesthetic skills go hand in hand.  

Your dental procedure must not only improve function and comfort levels, but also successfully reproduce shape, form, color, and aesthetics. Prothodontic expertise involves advanced bonding and whitening techniques, use of veneers and other solutions to enhance oral appearance and reshape teeth, natural looking color match, and the precise crafting and placement of fixed prosthesis like bridges and crowns.   

Correction of Complex Conditions  

Prosthodontic treatment can help improve the relationship between teeth and jaws for a correct bite. The oral surgeon will combine these treatments with other solutions to correct birth deformities such as cleft palate, treat traumatic injuries and disorders such as TMJ, as well as perform complex oral restorations for patients treated for head and neck cancer.

Out Of Town Patient Guide

Cosmetic surgery is a life altering procedure, and it makes sense to go the extra mile in choosing the best surgeon for your needs. Discerning patients recognize that the choice of the surgeon is the single most important factor that will impact their results. Therefore, they are often willing to travel out of town to seek the best possible treatment for their aesthetic concerns. 

McLain Surgical Arts, led by cosmetic surgeon Dr. Landon D. McLain, provides cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to patients in Huntsville, Madison, Florence, Decatur, Scottsboro, Cullman, Athens, Alabama, and surrounding locations.  

Long Distance Consultation  

shutterstock_1264838881Out of town patients usually have the choice between an in-person consultation and a long distance consultation with the surgeon. If you are busy or stay afar, it may not be feasible for you visit separately for a pre-surgery consultation. In this case, your surgeon and their team will make all efforts to ensure that you have an equally satisfying and productive consultation over the phone, Skype and email.  

Prior to your virtual consultation, you will have to submit your patient forms, medical history and images pertaining to your areas of concern (typically front-view and side-view images). The surgeon will review these details and prepare a customized surgical plan for you. Feel free to ask questions during the consultation and clear all your doubts.  

Scheduling Your Surgery 

Once you are ready to go ahead with the cosmetic surgery, your patient coordinator at the surgeon’s office will help you schedule a convenient date for surgery.  

You will also receive pre-surgery preparatory instructions, such as avoiding smoking and discontinuing NSAIDs and herbal medications, if any for at least two weeks prior to your procedure. Depending on your procedure, your surgeon may also require you to have some medical tests and blood work and submit the results to their office.  

Travel Plans 

Your patient coordinator will help you to make advance reservations for your transport and accommodation in the city for your surgery. The entire surgical team will do everything to make your out of town surgery experience as seamless as possible. 

You should ideally arrive in town a day or two head of your surgery, and plan to stay for a few days until you have recovered enough to safely travel back home. Your surgeon will give you an estimated recovery timeline according to your procedure. In general, you should expect to stay back for about one week after your surgery to allow the incisions to heal well.  

Post-Operative Care 

Your best option would be to bring along someone you can trust to assist you during your surgery and a day or two afterwards. Your caregiver can accompany you back to your hotel after the surgery, and preferably stay for at least 24 hours to provide you physical and emotional support.
