5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Finding Dr. Smaili is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I am 7 weeks post op after having a full tummy tuck. I am overjoyed with my results, they go above and beyond my imagination!! After 25 years this 52 year old Grandmother of 4 is sexier than ever and I will be rocking a bikini this summer!! Dr. Smaili knows his stuff and I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking cosmetic surgery!

Autologous fat grafting has completely revolutionized the way plastic surgeons perform buttock augmentation. Instead of solid silicone implants, a growing number of doctors, including myself, prefer the use of the most natural material—i.e., the patient’s own fat. The “idea” of autologous fat grafting in buttock augmentation may appear simple and straightforward: Collect unwanted fats from two or more donor sites through liposuction, and then inject them into the patient’s buttocks....
It is important to note that the use of new liposuction technology does not always translate to better results or safer surgeries. Hence, a prudent patient should select her doctor based on qualifications (board certifications and experience), rather than be too caught up in the “fancy” instruments he is brandishing. For instance, laser-assisted liposuction does not always translate to smoother results. Some studies have even suggested that it could increase the risk of skin asymm...
Hourglass tummy tuck is another fancy term for abdominoplasty, a body contouring surgery in which the appearance of protruding abdomen is corrected with a combination of techniques. It is important to note that most patients will need more than skin removal. After massive weight loss or pregnancy, the skin is not just stretched out. Other factors that contribute to the protruding abdomen include the splayed or weakened abdominal muscle and the excess fat (which may not respond to e...
Compared to most body contouring surgeries, tummy tuck recovery is generally more challenging in a sense that getting back your pre-surgery energy level could take up to 6-8 weeks. Nonetheless, healthy patients who adhere to their surgeon’s instructions can expect returning to work or “gentle” activities about two weeks postop. It is important to note that following tummy tuck recovery tips does not give you the “freedom” to resume strenuous activities sooner than the generally ...
Tummy tuck wound breakdown can be problematic because it could result in additional 2-3 weeks of healing (instead of about two weeks only) and may affect the quality of scarring. All efforts are made to ensure that the scar will fade and remain almost as thin as a width of a human hair. One of the most crucial steps to prevent or at least minimize risk of tummy tuck wound breakdown is to rule out chronic medical conditions. Simply put, it is only reserved for patients who are healthy e...
