Visit Tampa Surgical Arts for a Bone Graft Procedure from a Triple-Board-Certified Oral Surgeon

Bone GraftDr. Manik S. Bedi is the oral surgeon to trust for a bone graft procedure in the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Bedi, who is triple board certified, leads our team here at Tampa Surgical Arts and you can trust him for the dental procedure you need. During a consultation at our office, Dr. Bedi will learn about your reasons for needing a bone graft and tell you all about the treatment options he offers. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Bedi will ensure you are comfortable and that all of your questions are answered. That’s just the way we do things here at Tampa Surgical Arts.

What Is a Bone Graft?

A bone graft involves applying supplemental material or donor tissue to a bone in the jaw that has receded or otherwise deteriorated. In some cases, the bone graft can involve the patient’s own bone that is harvested from another part of their body; in other cases, the bone may be harvested from another species altogether. Once the bone graft has been completed, the patient’s cells will get to work to repair and strengthen the tissues surrounding the area.

How Is a Bone Graft Performed?

Bone Grafts

Typically, a bone graft is a simple outpatient procedure that Dr. Bedi can take care of right in our office. These simple bone grafts fall in three major categories:

  • Sinus lift – If you need to repair the bone around your molars, then you’ll require a sinus lift. It adds a bone between your jaw and maxillary sinuses and is called a sinus lift because the sinus membrane must be “lifted” to make room for the new bone.
  • Socket graft – If you need to have a tooth extracted, it’s best to have a socket graft completed immediately afterward to preserve the underlying jawbone. Otherwise, if you have a tooth extracted without bone grafting, the underlying jawbone will begin to shrink rapidly. Dr. Bedi can extract the tooth and then place a socket graft to fill the void in your jawbone, ensuring the existing tissue regenerates and repairs itself naturally.
  • Ridge augmentation – Sometimes, the bone surrounding a missing tooth cannot naturally repair itself and, when this happens, a ridge augmentation is needed. Dr. Bedi will recreate the structure of the socket and gum line by placing a bone graft into the damaged section.

If you require major bone augmentation, whether due to a congenital defect or traumatic injury, it will require a hospital stay and general anesthesia. The deteriorated jawbone will be repaired using your own bone, usually from your skull, hip, or knee.

Some of the other benefits of bone grafts may also include restoring stability to the jaw, improving facial appearance, and helping to prevent future bone loss.

What Treatment Considerations Should I Keep in Mind?

Bone GraftPatients who undergo a bone grafting procedure should be aware that the recovery period can be longer than most other oral surgery procedures. For example, even the simplest bone graft can take at least three months to heal, with most recovery periods lasting anywhere from six to nine months. Recovery time typically depends on the complexity of the bone graft.

What Should I Expect Before and After the Bone Graft Procedure?

You’ll receive specific instructions from Dr. Bedi in your treatment packet about what to do before the bone graft procedure. In most cases, you’ll be asked to fast in the hours leading up to the oral surgery, as well as stop certain medications that may interfere with the anesthesia.

Full recovery after the bone graft can take up to a year. However, you should be able to return to work and normal activities a few days following the procedure. You’ll experience swelling and pain, which can be addressed with a pain reliever. Additionally, you’ll want to eat a soft food diet until the discomfort decreases.

TRADITIONAL AWAKE VS 4D ASLEEP

Most experienced body sculpting/BBL surgeons do the procedure while you are asleep.

Traditional liposuction (no sculpting) is done awake at other facilities.

Correcting irregularities from awake lipo are extremely challenging, and most surgeons refuse these cases.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES the benefit of being asleep for Hi-Definition liposculpture.

ASYMMETRY

Fat transfer to the breasts is a great option for those who want to achieve more symmetry in their breasts.

The breasts will never be identical, and we can achieve a nice subtle change to the cleavage and upper pole with fat transfer.

If you want to go up more than 1 cup size and/or have laxity; a breast implant with a possible lift is your best option.

This beautiful client had asymmetrical breasts and shoulders at different levels, which makes the case even more challenging.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

BELLY BUTTON AESTHETIC

One of the biggest giveaways that someone has had body work done is the belly button.

If it looks scrunched, torqued, or does not match the rest of the body; it might indicate a procedure was done.

SOFT VS HARD

Fat transfer to the buttocks can make the buttocks firm for the first weeks while the body is healing; this is normal.

Eventually, the buttocks will get soft and have a natural look and feel.

Some will say, "Why does the butt look hard?"

A couple of issues:
1. "Hardness" is typically a tactile sensation, not a visual sensation.

2. Unless the client is actively making their butt shake/ jiggle/ bounce, the buttocks won`t move if they are turning slowly during a video.

Buttocks implants can sometimes feel hard; in skilled hands with a composite fat graft, the butt should have a natural feel.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how fat transfer can achieve a natural appearance of the buttocks.

BRUISING / RED SPOTS

It is normal to have bruising and redness after any procedure.

This is an interesting topic and there are two common responses:

1. "Wow! So much bruising and red. It must hurt! 😭"

2. "Why isn`t there any bruising?! The surgeon wasn`t aggressive enough! 😡"

Just as most things in life; it is impossible to please everyone.

What I can do is educate.

This beautiful client is having a typical post-op course and is about 6 weeks out.

FAT TRANSFER TO BREASTS

Yes, we do fat transfer to the breasts.

The best candidate is someone with no laxity (no loose skin/stretch marks) and who wants natural perkiness.

Fat transfer is best for those who want an increase of about 1-1.5 cup size; any more is best done with an implant.

This beautiful client had uneven breasts and tight skin.

She wanted a natural and balanced look.

HIP SLAYER

The most challenging area to add volume is the hips/laterals.

The skin can be extremely tight in this area and this means less fat uptake.

This beautiful client previously had a tummy tuck and lipo by another provider; she came to see me for a revision and fat transfer to her hips.

CORRECTIVE CASES

A corrective case is one that involves reducing irregularities from a previous procedure.

Most of the procedures we do are revisions, meaning the primary surgery was done by another provider.

In the procedure detail, at the end of the caption, you will get most of the information that you need about the case.

This beautiful client came to see us for a revision after having lipo elsewhere.

Her results are a perfect example of how maintaining a healthy lifestyle will get you next level results!

ULTRASOUND GUIDED BBL

Using an ultrasound helps the surgeon see important structures during fat transfer and is a tool that can increase client safety.

There are no major downsides to using an ultrasound.

There is an added cost to the facility and a slight learning curve to using an ultrasound.

Some surgeons do not use ultrasound and obtain great results, which is fine for them.

Most experienced BBL surgeons would agree that ultrasound definitely adds safety and certainly does not cause harm.
