Welcome to Blue Lagoon Plastic Surgery, we offer services of excellence in plastic and cosmetic surgery in Miami.
Body procedures are our surgical specialty. We have helped thousands of patients sculpt several areas of their body, with three basic procedures: liposuction, abdominoplasty and buttocks augmentation, which can be performed separately or combined. The extent of these procedures is based on the patient’s specific needs.
The Brazilian Butt Lift will cost an average of $4,096 and it consists of increasing the size of the buttocks by using fat extracted from other parts of the body, which will result in a significant change not only in the buttock area but also in the waist area, the abdomen and back, depending on the areas where liposuction was performed. This is one of the most innovative cosmetic procedures and one that has gained much popularity in recent years. This is in part due to the lasting changes it produces in the body, durability of transformation, and also because this alternative is less prone to infections, such as the ones caused by silicone implants or other complications that may arise when other substances are injected into the buttocks. The durability of your BBL depends on the technique employed and the surgeon's ability to treat the fat before it is injected, as well as the shape and place where the fat is injected. The results can last several years. The final shape of the buttocks is based on the patient’s goals, surgeon’s experience, and physical limitations of each patient since not all patients have enough fat available to achieve a larger posterior. Recovery may take approximately two weeks during which time the patient is required to avoid sitting on the buttocks.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, has an average cost of $5,500, and is mainly done to correct the abdominal area, whether a protruding abdomen, stretch marks caused by pregnancy, excessive weight loss or patients who perform liposuction to reduce the size of the abdomen and are left with excess skin in the area. A tummy tuck works two ways. At the muscular level to tighten the abdominal wall by repairing the separated muscles that stop the patient from achieving a flat stomach even after losing weight. At the level of the skin, it is responsible for stretching it, removing any excess skin thus helping eliminate the presence of stretch marks. It should be noted that this procedure usually requires recovery for at least two weeks and leaves a permanent scar that varies depending on the extent of your surgery, the surgeon’s skill and postoperative care required.
With an average cost of $3,374 in the United States, liposuction is the most commonly performed body procedure, since it is often performed in combination with other procedures such as abdominoplasty and buttocks augmentation. Many patients do liposuction before a tummy tuck. Also, one of the most frequent ways to perform a buttock augmentation is by using the patient's fat, which also requires performing a lipo before in order to graft the fat to be transplanted.
Lipo 360 is a cosmetic surgery conducted 360 degrees around a specific body part such as the lower torso and thigh, which means there is a greater circumferential reduction and a silhouette that looks natural and balanced. This procedure can be combined with other procedures such as a tummy tuck and a BBL. Patients with good quality skin who have reached their ideal weight are good candidates for this procedure. Recovery is different for everyone based on the amount of fat removed and location. Pain relievers are prescribed for any pain or soreness you may feel after the anesthesia has worn off. The average cost is $3200.
A mommy makeover consists of a combination of several procedures such as tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast augmentation. This procedure is often done to reverse the effects of pregnancy in some specific areas of the body such as the breasts, abdomen and waist, thighs and arms. However, some women may choose this procedure to correct obesity-related problems. Men are also good candidates for this procedure. The surgery can be done in one or more sessions, depending on the complexity. Recovery may vary from patient to patient based on the extent of the operation and type of procedure performed. Likewise, the cost is based on the areas operated, the kinds of implants used, and whether breasts lift or breast augmentation surgery was performed. Cellulite treatment is often combined with a mommy makeover.
Smart lipo is a surgical procedure that helps remove excess body fat in a much gentler and safer way than traditional liposuction. A smaller tube or cannula is used, so there is less scarring. You can lose a few inches and reduce the look of cellulite. Good candidates are those with no more than 30 pounds over their ideal weight, good skin elasticity and in good health. During recovery, you should expect low to moderate pain for the first 24-48 hours. Patients are given some specific instructions such as wearing a compression garment to control swelling, stop taking blood thinners, etc. The cost is $2,500 up to $7,000 per area.
But implants is a plastic surgery that helps correct any deformities in the buttock region. Buttock augmentation with fat grafting, also known as BBL, is the most popular option but you can also choose water-based or gel silicone implants. If you have an asymmetrical butt or you are not happy with its shape and size, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Patients are required to rest for several days after butt implant surgery and avoid sitting directly on the buttocks or lying on the back. The average cost of buttock augmentation with fat grafting is $4,000.
Brachioplasty or arm lift is a body-contouring surgery that makes your arms look thinner and smoother by removing extra sagging skin that hangs from the back part of the upper arm. This procedure is usually performed after weight-loss surgery and commonly combined with body contouring under the chin, or along the midsection, and inner thighs. The incision or scar is based on the length of the excess skin, which can be the full length of the arms or halfway down the arm. The typical downtime for this procedure is 1 to 2 weeks, during which time you have to wear a compression garment to help avoid swelling and further contour the arm. The best candidates for brachioplasty are men and women who are healthy and keep a stable weight. Your insurance doesn’t typically cover an arm lift. The average cost for this procedure is $4,200.
Laser lipo, also known as smart liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure that melts body fat with fiber-optic lasers also increasing the production of collagen in areas such as the abdomen hips, back, and arms. A good candidate for this procedure is in good health, near the ideal weight, with no serious health conditions and has localized fat deposits that have not responded to dieting and exercising. While pain and bruising is possible, most patients don’t suffer major complications from laser lipo. The cost for this procedure starts at $3,500.
