Dr Dass describes brazilian tummy tuck

Advanced technique of combined Abdominoplasty and Liposuction

Dr Dass specializes in Brazilian Tummy Tuck, also known as lipoabdominoplasty. This advanced technique is offered by few plastic surgeons in California. The technique was presented by world renowned plastic surgeon, Dr Saldanha of Sao Paolo, Brazil, who began using this technique in 2000. Prior to this time, traditional abdominoplasty with no combination liposuction was the standard, due the the fear of healing difficulties. Over time, the plastic surgery community began to reintroduce limited liposuction at the same time as abdominoplasty. Saldanha’s technique is revolutionary, because he demonstrated that liposuction of the entire abdomen can be safely performed with abdominoplasty. (Saldanha OR, Federico R, Daher PF, et al. Lipoabdominoplasty. Plast Reconstr Surg 2009; 124: 934-942.)

During a Brazilian Tummy Tuck, Dr Dass will liposuction the entire abdomen prior to the abdominoplasty, often patients will request liposuction of other areas including the full back (back bra rolls, love handles, waist/hips, lower back). Liposuction is necessary for contouring the body. In fact, it is not uncommon to perform Brazilian Butt lift at the same time. During Brazilian Butt Lift, the fat is then processed and transferred to the buttock, which further contours the body, reshapes the buttock, and accentuates the hourglass figure to create the feminine curves that women desire. Once the liposuction is complete, the excess skin from the abdomen is removed. Dr Dass believes keeping the incision as short as possible and places this incision very low, so that it hides within the bikini line. Meticulous technique is performed to preserve the blood supply to the skin, and to allow faster healing. The tissue deep to Scarpa’s fascia is preserved over the abdominal wall to improve adherence of the skin flap to the underlying abdominal wall and thereby help prevent seromas. Drains can typically be removed much quicker than traditional techniques. The rectus abdominal muscles are the plicated to correct diastasis recti, this condition is almost certainly present after child birth or massive weight loss. High lateral tension technique with closure in multiple layers is preformed to improve scar quality.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
