When the reconstruction is done immediately, the surgeon begins the first part of the process during the same operation mastectomy. You can use a method called skin-sparing mastectomy to preserve enough of the breast skin to reach to cover reconstruction. Another option is the immediate reconstruction postponed.

This method consists of placing a tissue under the skin during mastectomy to preserve space for the implant, while the tissue that has been removed is analyzed.

Cirugías insólitas: cirugía estética de pies

cirugía estética de pies

Actualmente casi todos estamos familiarizados con las cirugías estéticas dada su alta demanda. Aumento de senos, liposucción, tummy tuck o lifting facial son términos fácilmente manejados por un gran número de personas. Pero lo cierto es que, aunque la cirugía plástica se haya popularizado, hay ciertos procedimientos, podríamos decir, inusuales, que nos sirven para medir, de algún modo, el auge que ha tomado el culto al cuerpo y la preocupación por el cuerpo y por arreglar o modificar aquello que no nos guste. Dentro de estos “inusuales procedimientos” se encuentran las cirugías estéticas de pies.

Los pies siempre han sido susceptibles de ser intervenidos quirúrgicamente para arreglar alguna cuestión funcional. Pero, ¿sabías que hay intervenciones quirúrgicas diseñadas específicamente para mejorar la apariencia de los pies? Pues sí. A continuación, les explicamos las posibilidades que existen para el arreglo mediante la cirugía de los pies.

Cirugía estética de los pies, un interés nada nuevo

La concepción de los pies como objeto de belleza no es una cuestión nueva sino que numerosas culturas han considerado que los pies son un rasgo del cuerpo que hay que cuidar y que posee una carga estética y simbólica. Pensemos, por ejemplo, en los llamados “pies de loto” y las muchas mujeres en China que vendaron sus pies para detener su crecimiento y obtener los pies mencionados. En cambio, lo que sí es nuevo, al menos ahora es que ha tomado un mayor auge es la cirugía estética de los pies, consistente en intervenciones quirúrgicas encaminadas únicamente a mejorar estéticamente los pies modificando aquellas características que muchas personas perciben como “feas”.

Cirugía estética de los pies, procedimientos

En este tipo de cirugía estética de los pies muchas personas buscan mejorar la apariencia de sus dedos, eliminar alguna protuberancia, etc. Los cirujanos plásticos han desarrollado técnicas para acortar los dedos, eliminar el exceso de grasa o rebajar alguna estructura ósea poco estética sin interferir, por supuesto, en las funcionalidades del pie. Esta nueva tendencia ha sido altamente cuestionada aunque eso no ha detenido la avalancha de personas que buscan una mejoría en la apariencia de sus pies. Incluso podemos leer en la red que se han creado ciertos procedimientos para modificar la apariencia del pie y hacer así que este quede mejor en algunos zapatos de tacón de alto diseño.

Cierto es que el culto a la belleza se ha convertido en prioridad de muchos por lo que cada vez se desarrollan más técnicas quirúrgicas para hacer frente a la demanda estética. Es siempre fundamental contar con profesionales cualificados y certificados  para correr el menor riesgo posible. Contar con una clínica de cirugía estética es siempre importante y la cirugía estética de los pies no escapa a este requisito.

Si usted está pensando en realizarse una cirugía de este tipo, consulte con un cirujano plástico cualificado y evalúe sus beneficios y riesgos. Tome siempre en cuenta la opinión de profesionales.


Varicose veins treatments

Sea salt against varicose veins in Miami

Sea salt against varicose veins is one of the methods that we could put into action after completing treatment with injections. Specialists from My Cosmetic Surgery recommend it to remove “spider veins” or varicose veins that bother mainly women. Injections contain a percentage of saline injection that allows removing them, but to make this treatment more effective we recommend this procedure using sea salt.

This treatment based on sea salt against varicose veins can be followed twice a week. What we do is to prepare a detoxifying bath where, in addition, we will benefit from other elements as essential oils and magnesium sulfate, ideal to open the pores of the skin, detoxify and provide adequate nutrients to support the balance of our tissues.

Sea sand and sea salt are two natural exfoliating products that are recommended for treating cellulitis. An excellent practice to alleviate this problem is simply to go regularly to the beach or the rocks, sit on the sand and do soft massages on the area with sand and salt water.

How to prepare sea salt against varicose veins?

You can prepare this bath once or twice a week. You will have to find a free time of at least half an hour, so you can relax and take advantage of these natural elements. You can include in this bath all natural oils you want. We recommend cypress oil. This is a very effective natural anti-inflammatory that will help to reduce these fat nodules that cause cellulite. This oil can be found in stores of special products or specialized perfumeries.

All ingredients should be mixed in a bow: salt, bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate and essential oils by stirring them well with a wooden spoon. You do not have to add water.

Sea salt against varicose veins in your bathroom:

The second step is simple, we must add this preparation in the tub or shower, which you have previously filled with hot water. Then, with the other half and a sponge you should do a massage on your thighs or on the area affected by cellulitis. This massage must be energetic to reactivate blood circulation and to ensure that all elements penetrate our skin. Once we finish this massage we can immerse ourselves in the tub for at least 35 minutes.

Then we can dry normally. If we perform this procedure every week after injections, sea salt against varicose veins will undoubtedly be well effective.
