Achieving Perfect Skin On Your Wedding Day

Every woman envisions her wedding day to be perfect, and for many, one of the biggest concerns about saying, “I do” is worrying about how she’ll look walking down the aisle. Several months before the wedding is the ideal time to consider what will make you look and feel your best.

For younger looking skin that will leave you looking radiant on your big day, consider beginning a noninvasive skin care regimen at around four months before the wedding. Wash your face every night before going to bed, and in the morning, apply a good quality moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher to reduce damage from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Speaking of the sun, while a tan might seem like a good idea, it can easily become a burn, so instead of a visit to the beach or tanning bed, think about getting a spray tan instead.

Minimally invasive injectables and fillers are ideal for those who don’t want or need Orlando cosmetic surgery. They should be done a couple weeks before the wedding day, in case there is swelling or light bruising. A touch up may also be needed. You may want to consider a combination of Botox and Juvederm, for example, to smooth wrinkles and plump up your lips.

Even with proper diet and exercise, some women fail to achieve the results they desire.  Various cosmetic surgery procedures can help you meet your goals, including abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck; liposuction, or the removal of fat from targeted areas; and breast augmentation, reduction or lift. Remember, it takes several months before the results are complete, so these procedures must be scheduled relatively far in advance of your big day.

Before your wedding approaches, schedule a consultation with cosmetic surgeon Dr. George Pope or one of his staff, and spoil yourself with the gift that ensures you’ll look your best on your wedding day.

Dr. George Pope’s Orlando Plastic Surgery Center provides Central Florida with first-class Orlando cosmetic surgery services. Our exceptionally trained staff delivers services designed to assist you in your journey toward a better quality of life. When you visit Orlando Plastic Surgery Center, you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgeable and compassionate staff, who will ensure you receive the most outstanding experience possible.

Do You Exercise Regularly And Those Hips Stay Wide? Liposuction May Be Right For You.
March 31st, 2013  Posted By George Pope MD   Posted in Abdominoplasty, Face & Neck, General News, Liposuction | 1 Comment »

There are people with isolated fatty pockets that do not respond effectively to diet and exercise. Does this sound like you? You may be an ideal candidate for the cosmetic surgical procedure of liposuction. Liposuction is a method of body sculpting, body contouring or "spot-reduction" that involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body. Liposuction can be done virtually anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, thighs, knees, calves, ankles and upper arms. Additionally, facial liposuction is often performed to address the jowls, cheeks and neck.

Localized fat deposits may be inherited genetically, and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. If this is you, the condition may be beyond your control. Liposuction is often the only way to remove them.

Liposuction is also referred to as lipoplasty, suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasound-assisted liposuction or lipoplasty, laser-assisted liposuction or lipoplasty, power-assisted liposuction or lipoplasty, and water-assisted liposuction or lipoplasty.

Liposuction can be done alone or with other plastic surgery procedures such as breast reduction or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). It can be performed on several areas of the body at once. Sometimes, liposuction is performed as the first step in a fat transfer procedure such as the Brazilian butt lift, fat grafting to the breast or a stem cell facelift. In these cases, fat is removed via liposuction, processed and then re-injected into another area of the body where it is in short supply.

Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?
The first step toward determining your candidacy for liposuction is a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. George H. Pope, M.D. During this appointment or series of appointments, Dr. Pope will take a thorough medical history. He will also talk with you about your expectations to make sure they are realistic.

Ideal candidates for liposuction are women and men of relatively normal weight with isolated pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. You should have a firm and elastic skin tone and excessive fatty deposits in certain body areas. Liposuction removes fat, not loose skin. Age is not a deciding factor, but it should be noted that many older people have less-flexible skin and may not get optimal results from liposuction. This will be discussed at your consultation.

There are some newer, non-invasive body contouring alternatives that may be options for removing smaller pockets of fat such as love handles, muffin tops or Cesarean section bulges. Ask Dr. Pope which treatment or combination of treatments makes the most sense for you. He will guide you to the right choice.

What to Expect After Liposuction
The suctioned areas will be swollen and uncomfortable for several days after liposuction. In some cases, the small incisions are left open temporarily during liposuction recovery so that fluids and residual fatty deposits can empty through inserted drains. You may be prescribed an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection.

Usually the treated area is wrapped with an elastic bandage. Support hosiery may be worn over this to help control swelling and bruising. You may need to wear the bandage and/or support garment for several days or weeks.

Walking soon after your surgery will decrease the risk of developing potentially fatal blood clots that can occur from long periods of being sedentary. You will be allowed to return to work or your normal activities in a few days. Strenuous activity, however, is a no-no for at least three weeks.

Be patient. The final results may not be evident for up to six months, but they are permanent (assuming that your weight remains stable). Depending on how the procedure was performed, you may see some preliminary results in as early as one week.

Dr. George H. Pope, M.D. is a skilled and trusted practitioner of liposuction, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He is also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Pope will conduct your liposuction with the utmost safety and concern for your well-being.

Don’t Spend This Summer Hiding Your Stomach! A Tummy Tuck Could Give You a Bikini-Perfect Body!
March 30th, 2013  Posted By George Pope MD   Posted in Abdominoplasty, General News, Tummy Tuck | No Comments »

Tummy tuck surgery is one way Dr. Pope at the Orlando Plastic Surgery Center helps you achieve flatter abs and a slender, more natural look just in time for swimsuit season.

Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, can give you the smooth, firm stomach you have always desired. This surgical procedure removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen, sometimes restoring weakened or separated stomach muscles in the process.

While not a substitute for weight loss, a tummy tuck can let you create a toned profile you might not be able to achieve through diet and exercise alone. You will receive permanent results that you can show off for many years to come.

Thinking of a tummy tuck? Here is where to start
To decide if a tummy tuck is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. George H. Pope at the Orlando Plastic Surgery Center. Here, each plastic surgeon is a member of the University of Massachusetts Medical School faculty. Their work sets the standard not only for traditional plastic surgery but also postbariatric surgeries that require advanced treatment.

There are several options available, including a mini tummy tuck and a tummy tuck with liposuction. During your consultation, you can discuss all available procedures with Dr. Pope to determine which one best fits your needs.

A tummy tuck is a safe procedure with minimal side effects
You may choose to have additional cosmetic procedures, such as a breast augmentation or face lift. In that case, if necessary, Dr. Pope will perform the surgeries in stages or give you an overnight stay to ensure the smoothest recovery and best possible results.

Because all procedures are done in our prestigious OASIS Surgical Center for Excellence with a fully trained anesthesia team, you can expect a safe experience with few or no side effects.

After your tummy tuck, after two or three weeks, you will be able to show off your new look to the world.

Schedule a consultation or get more information by calling The Orlando Plastic Surgery Center at 407-857-6261.

George H. Pope, M.D. is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

New Options For Breast Augmentation
March 8th, 2013  Posted By George Pope MD   Posted in General News | 1 Comment »
Tags: , , , , ,

The newest, most advanced breast implant has been approved by the FDA, and is now available at the Orlando Plastic Surgery Center. Allergan has recently come out with a new type of shaped gel and as they say, it’s “designed for shape that holds and satisfaction that lasts.” This gel, called the Natrelle 410 Shaped Gel, is the fourth silicon gel-filled breast implant to be approved by the FDA. This implant is available for both breast augmentation and reconstruction.

 

This revolutionary technology is a gel that is designed to give the breast an extraordinarily natural look –and maintain that look over time. The Natrelle shaped gel is designed to deliver a true anatomical, “teardrop” shape. After a breast augmentation with the shaped gel, you will enjoy a soft, natural feel along with a natural, untouched look. This implant was created to be firm enough to maintain its structure, but soft enough to feel natural.

 

As with all new products, safety is a primary concern. The FDA has recently approved this gel for use in breast augmentation patients. Across 7 years of clinical studies, this gel has been proven safe. Additionally, 96.5% of the 941 women were highly satisfied with their augmentation. Currently, this is the #1 selected shaped breast implant by plastic surgeons in Europe and Canada.

 

Dr. George H. Pope is proud to be among the first to bring this fantastic new product to you. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Pope can bring the newest procedures and products to you with the utmost safety and concern for your well-being. It is important to talk with a board-certified plastic surgeon to go over which options are best for you. If you are interested in a breast augmentation procedure, please contact us today!

Revolutionary Pain Relief Only At Orlando Plastic Surgery Center
February 1st, 2013  Posted By George Pope MD   Posted in General News | No Comments »
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Are you considering a surgical procedure, but worried about the pain it may cause? Rest assured, Dr. George H. Pope has a solution for you! He is one of the first surgeons in Orlando to use Exparel, a new groundbreaking and safe pain reduction medication.

 

Today, most post-surgical pain is managed through the use of opioids. Opioids come in the form of drugs like Codeine and are usually prescribed as an oral dosage. These drugs can cause unwanted side effects and have been shown to be rather ineffective in the first 24 to 48 hours after a surgery. Exparel has been tested with surgeries that are known to be the most painful, and proven to supply a significant reduction in pain during the first 72 hours. This means a faster recovery, less pain, and less opioids in your recovery process.

 

Contrary to most pain reduction treatments, Exparel is not taken orally. It is injected directly to the surgical site and the pain relief is slowly released over time. This powerful pain reliever right at the source greatly reduces the recovery time of surgeries, allowing you to return back to your normal life quickly. Studies show that Exparel provides a 30% reduction in cumulative pain scores along with a 45% decrease in the use of opioids.

 

With many new medications, the main concern is safety. You can put your mind to ease knowing that Exparel has been evaluated in 21 clinical trials, which include over 1,300 subjects, who experienced minimal side effects. You can read more in-depth about the safety of Exparel here. When you come in for your consultation, ask Dr. Pope if Exparel is right for you.

 

We are proud at the Orlando Plastic Surgery Center to be the first to offer this great new pain reduction method. Contact us and schedule your consultation with Dr. George H. Pope today. You are sure to get the results you want with the least amount of pain possible.

Is My Plastic Surgeon Board Certified? … And Why Does it Matter?
December 6th, 2012  Posted By George Pope MD   Posted in General News | No Comments »
Tags: , , , , ,

These days it seems that there are as many plastic surgeons as there are Starbucks in every shopping plaza. How are patients supposed to make educated decisions about their bodies when the market is flooded with so many options?

Look to your right, and you’ll see billboards for “discounted breast surgeries”… look to your left and you’ll be convinced that getting your lips plumped for $99 is the steal of the century.

What’s a girl—or guy—to do? Simple… Make sure your doctor is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. This elite group of doctors are at the top of their game, and there’s no better choice for your body than a board-certified plastic surgeon from The American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Why The American Board of Plastic Surgery? Why not another society or group?

The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is one of the 24 specialty boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). It is the only ABMS board which certifies in the full spectrum of the specialty of plastic surgery of the entire body—plastic and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck, trunk and extremities.

By choosing a plastic surgeon who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc., you can be assured that the doctor has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least five years of additional training as a resident surgeon in a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Medical Education or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

This includes a minimum of five years of residency training in all areas of surgery, including at least two years devoted entirely to plastic surgery. Certification is a voluntary process a surgeon seeks after this training. To become certified, the doctor then must pass comprehensive written and oral exams.”
