Unlike the rest of the body, thighs have less fibrous tissue as a result of which, the fat formed in this region may not look even and is soft that can be easily removed with a cannula during liposuction. Interestingly saddlebags are found more in women than men.
During the process of vaginal rejuvenation, apart from removing and reshaping the outer look of the vagina, laser is used on the muscles around the vagina, bladder and rectum. This helps in tightening them along with an increase in production of collagen that helps muscles fix the tears and become strong.
“One most common reason I see in my patients who come with darker inner thighs problem is ‘obesity’ or ‘being overweight’” says Dr. Deepa Ganesh, popular cosmetic gynaecologist in at DG Laser & Cosmetic Gynecology Clinic, Chennai.
In our previous article, we have covered about ‘Mini tummy tuck’ where in the just the lower bottom of the abdomen is corrected. In an extended tummy tuck (which is similar to abdominoplasty procedure), the fat from the love handles (or side flanks) and lower back is also removed. This should sound as a boon to many people who work out regularly but still find it hard to lose those love handles.
Mini tummy tuck refers to the surgical procedure in which a little ‘bloated’ kind of abdomen is brought into shape. This is a less invasive surgery than regular tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty. The surgery is performed between the belly button and the pubic area, usually referred to as the lower abdomen. Mini tummy tuck should be opted when you have worked on your diet, have been regular exercises but none of them could help you in reshaping your abdomen.
Are you thinking of going for a tummy tuck surgery immediately after you delivery your baby via C-section surgery? Tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a surgery done to correct the shape of abdomen by adjusting the muscles and removing the extra skin to bring you back into shape post delivery. If you are thinking that combining both into a single surgery (though it is longer) so that you can save some time, then this article is for you.
C-section involves two major incisions:
a. Incision on the abdominal area
b. Incision to the uterus
Along with these, many tissues and nerves need to be cut and disturbed during the surgery. If you underwent cesarean surgery to deliver your baby, you need to be very careful while you heal and need to follow your gynecologist’s instructions religiously.
Overflow incontinence is a condition when few drops of urine that comes out after you think you have finished peeing / emptying your bladder. This is sometimes called ‘dribbling’. Such a leakage can cause embarrassment as you dribble in your underpants.
A sudden urge to urinate but leaking a few drops by the time you reach the restroom is called ‘Urge Incontinence’. Urge incontinence is sometimes referred to as ‘Overactive bladder’ (OAB) but OAB is little different that there need not be necessarily urine leaking. Urge incontinence is just a symptom of a problem that is present in the pelvis region.
Stress Incontinence or Stress Urinary Incontinence is a condition when urine leaks out of when pressure is applied on the abdominal area due to sneezing, coughing, lifting weights etc. When the condition is severe, even very little pressure can make the urine leak out of the bladder. Urine leakage happens due to the weakening of the muscles and tissues around the bladder and urethra that control the pressure on them. Stress Incontinence is most often seen in women than in men.
Vaginal Dryness is due to the lowered production of estrogen hormone in a woman. This typically happens during the peri-menopausal stage or after the woman has reached menopause state. In some women (actually in many women), vaginal dryness is seen after delivering the baby. As per a study, this number stands at 43%. If you have a dry vagina after delivering a baby, you are not alone.
Perineum is the small area between the vagina and the anus in women. Similarly in men, it is the area between the scrotum and the anus. This region is made of thin tissues that act as a barrier between the vagina and rectum inside the body. Perineum has relatively less hair compared to other parts of the genitals.
