Facelift and Other Cosmetic Facial Surgery Procedures Expertly Performed by Dr. Bedi for Clients in the Tampa Bay Area

FaceliftA facelift is a common cosmetic surgery procedure that helps to address facial aging, resulting in a tauter, smoother, and more youthful appearance. At Tampa Surgical Arts in Tampa Bay, Florida, our renowned cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, performs facelift procedures for clients throughout the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Bedi is extensively trained in the art of cosmetic facial surgery and is triple board certified – which includes a certification with the American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery.

Many clients who come to Dr. Bedi for a facelift want to tighten a sagging jawline, remove the “marionette” lines between their nose and the corners of their mouth, or improve a tired appearance. When you consult with Dr. Bedi about a facelift, he will take the time to get to know you and understand exactly what you are seeking from your procedure. He will then put together a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan that addresses your concerns, and he will make sure you are pleased with the final result.

In addition, at Tampa Surgical Arts, we strive to make our facelift procedures as comfortable and convenient as possible. That is why we ensure minimal wait times in our comfortable reception area, exercise discretion with every client, and perform our facelifts within our clinic, which means you won’t have to worry about traveling to a separate surgery center for your procedure.

When it comes to cosmetic facial surgery, Dr. Bedi can perform many other procedures in addition to facelift surgery. Some of the other facial surgeries we offer at Tampa Surgical Arts include:

Clients who want to have a facelift or any other type of facial surgery performed at our clinic must be in good health and have not had an adverse reaction to anesthesia in the past, as many of our procedures involve anesthesia.

If you’d like to consult with Dr. Bedi about a facelift, simply contact Tampa Surgical Arts to schedule an appointment at our office in Tampa Bay, FL. We proudly serve men and women throughout the Tampa Bay area.

ANTERIOR HIP EXPANSION

Some of the latest trends in body contouring are subtle curves that blend from the back to the front and a defined pelvic bone.

In this case, the fat was transferred to fill the 'hip dip' area and create a more balanced appearance.

Another feature of this case was highlighting her pelvic bone (notice the shadow below where her bikini sits).

This beautiful woman is almost 3 months out and will continue to look better over time.

***Her esthetic goal was a 'natural etch and natural BBL,' do you think we got it right?

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES what anterior hip expansion is.

Procedure: 4D SVELTE abs + natural BBL⚡️🍑

Starting Foundation: 5'6", 170 lbs, BMI: 27.4

OPTIMIZING FAT TRANSFER

Some clients will need two rounds of fat transfer to get the look they want.

Typically, those who want very round laterals (filled hip dips) will require two BBL's.

We do our best to get the desired look in the first round, but sometimes it is impossible to do.

The best quality fat for a transfer case is from the love handles/flanks area.

Gaining weight for a BBL might be recommended for some but must be done with a healthy diet and/or with the guidance of a nutritionist.

This beautiful woman had her first BBL by another provider.

She came to see me to correct her buttocks asymmetry and fill her hip dips.

***Only 6 weeks out, check out that lower back curve/transition zone. 🤌

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how you can optimize fat transfer.

Procedure: Revision 4D liposculpture 360/arms + Round 2 BBL⚡️🍑

SECONDARY BBL

The two most common fat transfer (BBL) related requests we get now are:
round 2 BBL to fill hip dips/more roundness or BBL reduction.

The trend for a 'natural BBL' has been our mantra from the beginning.

The term 'natural' is used loosely but in reality means a balanced BBL.

Most of the BBL reductions we see are when the hips/buttocks do not match the rest of the body.

Someone with bigger thighs/legs will look balanced with a 'bigger' BBL/THICC look.

Someone with skinny legs will likely NOT look balanced with a 'bigger' BBL.

This beautiful woman had her first round BBL elsewhere and came to see me for a round 2/secondary BBL.

Her thighs/legs help support her 'bigger' BBL/ THICC look.

***Can you guess what her waist::hip ratio is? ⌛️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if you are a secondary BBL candidate.

Procedure: Revision 4D liposculpture 360/IT + VIXEN BBL⚡️🍑

BODY CONTOURING IN FLORIDA

I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to be selected for a discussion with Tampa Bay's Morning Blend about the latest trends in body sculpting.

Florida often gets a negative press about certain facilities that are not focused on overall experience or client results.

Some of the many things we do that set us apart are:
✔️Consults done with surgeon
✔️Surgeon involved in pre and post op care
✔️Fully accredited surgery center
✔️Limited amount of procedures per day

Come see how we do things differently in Tampa, FL, and let our team guide you through the entire body contouring journey!

UNEVEN HIP DIPS

Hip dips are typically the most challenging area to add volume (fat transfer) during a BBL case.

The level of difficulty goes up when the skin envelope is very tight and when the starting foundation is asymmetrical.

To add to the challenge, this woman was a skinny BBL (BMI less than 25).

Some of the most common reasons for uneven hip dips are: genetic, shoulders/hips at different heights, scoliosis (curved spine), or combination of all the above.

This beautiful woman had obvious uneven hips and had more fat transfer done on one side of her buttocks to create the optical illusion of a balanced, rounder, and fuller buttocks.

***Do you think her hip dips look better?

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES the challenges of baseline unevenness.

Procedure: HD liposculpture 360 + Skinny BBL⚡️🍑

GYM + BODY CONTOURING

Maintaining your results after body contouring can sometimes be challenging.

Those who start with a healthy lifestyle and want to be the best version of themselves will ultimately have the best outcomes.

Doing something for your health every day (workout routine that involves some type of increased HR/sweating/etc..) is better than doing nothing.

As many of you heard me say, "When you least feel like doing it, is actually the best time to do it!"

This beautiful woman is 2 years out and looks phenomenal because of her commitment to the process.

***Did you check out her new ab definition?

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how to maintain your results.

SAFE BODY CONTOURING

Lipo centers have become increasingly popular over the years and showing up at every corner.

An important factor in selecting a provider is safety and results.

The amount of fat that can be removed safely during one visit depends on multiple factors.

Some surgeons will claim to remove over 8 liters (almost 18 lbs) in one visit.

In our opinion, this is not safe.

If you find a surgeon who can do this safely then we honorably tip our hat to them.

This woman understood the safe limit and is looking more balanced at 3 months out.

***Being realistic with your expectations will ultimately lead to the best results.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they do safe body contouring.

Procedure: Liposculpture 360 + BBL ⌛️🍑

DYNAMIC BODY SCULPTING

The best sign that you are confident after body contouring is showing off your results in beach wear.

When there is more abdominal etching done, it also means the tissue is made thinner by selective fat removal combined with internal/external skin tightening.

In these cases, there is also prolonged swelling because the layer of tissue closest to the skin takes more time to heal.

The final results can take almost a year to shine through for HD cases.

When there is scar tissue from previous procedures, the swelling can sometimes last longer.

This woman came to see me for correction of deformities from awake lipo by another provider.

She is over 1 year post-op.

***Are you ready for dynamic body sculpting?🙋‍♀️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they do dynamic body contouring.

Procedure: Revision HD liposculpture (ab etching)⚡️

Starting Foundation: 5'0", 150 lbs, BMI: 29.3

DO IT FOR YOURSELF

Body sculpting is typically best for those who want to be the best version of themselves.

At the same time, the best candidates block out noise and usually don't do body contouring to please others.

This beautiful woman traveled from out of the state (as most of our clients do) to get high definition liposculpture.

She was intrigued by our natural looking abdominal sculpting using all hidden/discreet entry points.

She is over 2 months out and will continue to get more defined over the next year.

***Would you do body sculpting for yourself? Comment below 🤔

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they do natural body contouring.

FAT TRANSFER SETTLING

The first few weeks after any body contouring is definitely a roller-coaster.

When you include fat transfer (BBL) there is even bigger swings of swelling up/down each day.

The buttocks invariably looks massive the first few days but in reality it takes months to 'settle.'

During this time, there might be a small window where the buttocks gets very irregular with swelling/softness/hardness.

Some people will call this the "fluff phase."

This beautiful woman is a great example of: her buttocks is "too big" on day 1 (see previous posts), but now the fat transfer is settling in nicely.

She is 6 weeks out in this video.

***Comment below and let me know where you see her entry points. 🥷🤌

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES when your BBL will settle.

Procedure: 4D SVELTE abs + VIXEN BBL⚡️🍑

Starting Foundation: 5'2", 157 lbs, BMI: 28.7

Vmax BBL

There is an increase in demand for those wanting a more natural/smaller BBL.

At the same time there continues to be clients who want a very VIXEN and curvy appearance.

Both options are great depending on what your overall desired look is.

For a more dramatic W::H ratio (less than 0.6), typically a round 2 or secondary BBL is required.

During the first round, the buttocks can only take so much expansion and hit what I call the 'Vmax' of that session.

The skin envelope will not allow any more fat to be transferred and a secondary BBL at a later time is needed to achieve the super tiny waist to curvy hips ratio.

This beautiful woman came to see me for a secondary BBL and hit Vmax (first procedure done by another provider).

She is 1 day out and wearing our newest fajas (with boards) that allow for maximum hip/buttocks expansion while maintaining maximum waist compression.

She is extremely swollen and will shrink quickly over the next few weeks.

***What do you prefer, natural BBL or a Vmax VIXEN BBL? 🤔🍑

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if you need a secondary BBL.

Procedure: Round 2 BBL⚡️🍑🍑

Starting Foundation: 5'6", 175 lbs, BMI: 28.2

SKIN TIGHTENING

One of the most requested procedures we offer is skin tightening in combination with body sculpting.

Not everyone is a candidate for internal skin tightening and an important factor is your skin biotype.

Some clients genetically have loose skin with a lot of stretch marks and will need a skin removal procedure.

The lucky few who have a favorable skin biotype with minimal stretch marks will be the best candidates.

This beautiful woman previously had lipo and then non surgical cooling of her fat, which unfortunately left her with contour irregularities and fibrosis.

She came to see me for a revision.

She is now 6 weeks out and will continue to look better over time.

***Comment below if you think her abdomen looks more balanced now. 😊⚡️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if you qualify for skin tightening.

Procedure: Revision 4D Ab Sculpting (utilizing VASER and J-Plasma/Renuvion)⚡️

AB SCULPTING AFTER TUMMY TUCK

A commonly asked question is, "Can I get ab etching after a previous abdominoplasty?"

The short answer is: "Yes, but it depends on your skin quality."

Some clients will have residual skin laxity after a tummy tuck and need additional skin removal.

Most clients will need to wait at least 9 months after their tummy tuck for ab sculpting.

It is not recommended to get ab etching and then a tummy tuck.

The procedures should be combined, if possible, or the ab etching can be done after the tummy tuck.

This beautiful woman had an abdominoplasty by another provider and came to us for ab contouring to highlight her underlying anatomy.

***Who else is excited to see how this one turns out?! 🙋‍♀️

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if you can get ab contouring after a tummy tuck.

STARTING FOUNDATION

Your starting body composition is one of many factors that will determine if you qualify for a procedure at our facility.

There have been multiple previous posts (including in our guide) about the surgery requirements at our center, but it is worth reviewing.

Body Mass Index is one of the criteria, and the upper limit is 30.0 (free BMI calculator on our website and also found via Google search).

A BMI of greater than 30 also makes you at a higher risk for surgery and anesthesia related complications (ASA 2 classification).

Some will see this requirement and submit their paperwork with a BMI of '29.9'

Ultimately, you will be weighed once you arrive, and if the BMI is 30.0 or higher, the results will be compromised or your surgery will be canceled.

This beautiful woman understood the guidelines and her results continue to impress me every day at over 15 months post-op.

Her results are an example of her commitment to the process and her overall well-being.

She had lipo by another provider and came to see me for a revision.

***Check out how she joyously embraces the dynamic HD body contouring! 🤌

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES their surgery center guidelines.

WOMANLY SHAPE

Fat transfer to the buttocks has a very different look for those wanting a womanly (upside down heart) shape vs a masculine (square) shape.

Most would agree that the hardest area to contour is the hip dips/laterals.

Clients with a very tight skin envelope might require a second round BBL.

Those who are born male genetically have extremely tight "hip dips."

This man wanted a more womanly (rounder and perkier with filled hip dips) appearance.

***Comment below if you think we were able to change this masculine buttocks to a more womanly shape? 🍑

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they shape buttocks.

Procedure: Masculine to Womanly Shape BBL 🍑

SHAPE AND SCULPT

Body contouring should enhance your underlying anatomy.

Over or under sculpting will look disproportionate and not match the rest of the body.

There are a lot of providers who perform "liposuction" and finding one that produces results that you identify with is what matters.

If you want the most of volume removed and not really interested in the final look, then we might not be the best facility for you.

This beautiful woman had non surgical fat cooling of fat by another provider and, unfortunately, developed contour irregularities (paradoxical adipose hyperplasia).

These cases are always challenging and have the same amount of recovery/swelling as a revision.

***Do you think her new shape will match the rest of her body?! 😁👌

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they shape and sculpt their clients.
