High Definition Liposculpture Des Moines

  • VASER Hi Def Liposculpture at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™

    VASER Hi Def Liposculpturing is a minimally invasive procedure that precisely and efficiently reduces unwanted body fat. This system uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology (VASER) which is designed to gently reshape your body. The technique requires that the doctor is specially trained in VASER Hi Def Liposculpturing.

    What make the VASER Hi Def Liposculpturing procedure different is its ability to sculpt six pack abs, pecs, lats, obliques (as well as other muscle groups). Innovative VASER technology breaks up fat while preserving important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue to promote smooth results and rapid healing.

    Dr. Robbins offers VASER Hi Def liposculpture and fat transfer in Des Moines, Iowa. Dr. Robbins is one of a few surgeons in the Midwest and the first and currently the only surgeon in Des Moines to be trained in the advanced liposuction techniques of VASER Hi Def liposculpture. He was trained at the Advanced Body Sculpting Institute by plastic surgeon Dr. John Millard who pioneered this procedure and was the first plastic surgeon to perform VASER® Hi Def Liposuction in the United States.

  • What is VASER Hi Def Liposculpturing and is it different than traditional liposuction?

    Traditional liposuction involves removal of deep fat in the body and is simply a reduction in fat volume. Traditional liposuction does not allow the surgeon to “sculp” the body. Liposculpture is more than just fat removal. Rather, it involves an advanced and artistic way of shaping the body then traditional liposuction. The VASER ultrasound liposuction device is used in the liposculpture procedure as well as removal of subdermal, superficial, and deep fat compartments. Advanced ultrasound energy is used to break down fat in a very precise and efficient manner.

    Most surgeons perform traditional liposuction and not liposculpture. Dr. Robbins purchased the VASER liposculpture device for his practice and is properly trained in this advanced liposuction and body contouring technique. He is the only surgeon offering VASER Hi Def and VASER 4D liposculpture in the state of Iowa.

    High-definition liposculpture is an advanced liposuction technique that allows Dr. Robbins to improve the visibility of muscles and to sculpt the body. Candidates for High Def liposculpture are healthy, athletic individuals who want to increase the visibility of their muscle detail. In essence, High Def Liposculpture is liposuction for the physically fit. From Dr. Robbins’ perspective, High Def Liposculpture is taking his skills as a surgeon to the next level.

  • What is VASER 4D Liposculpture?

    Des Moines Plastic Surgery™, VASER High Def 4D liposculpture involves VASER High Def liposculpture with the addition of fat grafting to augment anatomy. The fat grafting adds an entirely new dimension of sculpting the body. Dr. Robbins incorporates the patient’s own fat (autologous fat transfer (AFT) to fine tune nearly any part of the patients’ body. At Des Moines Plastic Surgery™, Dr. Robbins can enhance the rectus and oblique muscles of the abdomen by using intramuscular and sub-dermal fat grafting. AFT can also be used to add definition to the breasts, shoulders, arms, buttocks and legs.

  • What are the advantages of VASER Hi Def Liposculpture?
    • Enables Dr. Robbins to sculpt your anatomical structure beneath the skin to help create definition.
    • Defines underlying muscles to give you a chiseled, sculpted, more athletic appearance.
    • This is a highly precise technique requiring a high level of skill, training, and a thorough understanding of art, anatomy, and the human body.
    • Best candidates are athletic men and women with good muscle tone and small pockets of exercise resistant fat in addition to great skin tone.
    • This technique can be applied to the arms, abdomen, chest, hips, breasts and legs.
  • Chest Sculpting Procedure

    This procedure involves VASER Hi Def 4D liposculpting along the lower and lateral (outer) chest to “define” the chest muscles. Next, fat grafting is performed to the pectoralis muscle (chest muscle) to enhance chest muscle size, shape, projection and definition.

  • Ab Sculpting Procedure

    Ab sculpting is the most common VASER HD 4D procedure performed by Dr. Robbins. It involves liposculpting and fat grafting the upper and lower abdominal region and the pelvic crease area resulting in a chiseled “six pack”, sculpted abdominal region.

  • Shoulders & Arms Sculpting Procedure

    VASER Hi Def Liposculpture can be performed to the arms and shoulders. Deltoids, biceps and triceps can be sculpted and defined with a combination of VASER liposculpting and fat transfer.

  • VASER Hi Def Breast Sculpting Procedure

    The VASER HD technique starts by removing superficial fat from around the breast’s lower and outer border making the breast appear larger with a more defined, smoother and distinctive curve of the female breast with removal of unwanted excess fat that can be apparent under bra straps. The fat that is extracted can then be transferred to your inner chest area to naturally enhance your cleavage and camouflage widely separated breasts.

Meeting Dr. David Robbins

This is the customer’s opportunity to ask any and all questions. It is also Dr. Robbins’ opportunity to ask you questions as well. Every conversation should be open and honest because surgery is a big deal and both parties involved want the best outcome with the best experience possible. You should be expected to talk about the following:

What you want to change about your body, and why you want to change it?
How you feel about your body now, and how you would like to feel after plastic surgery?
Your goals: what do you want to look like after surgery, what specific changes would you like to see?
Which procedure(s), if any, can help you achieve your goals?
What results you can expect from each procedure?
What’s involved in the surgery (anesthesia type, incisions, recovery timeframe)?
The risks and possible complications from surgery?
Review your medical history (be open and honest for your safety).

#desmoines #westdesmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #iowa

When you are called back to begin your consultation appointment, you will first meet with a patient coordinator, who will review your medical history with you and help you get settled. Your patient coordinator is your liaison between you and the practice. They make sure your questions are addressed quickly as you consider your options before surgery as well as throughout your surgery and recovery process. They also help you with scheduling pre-op appointments, your surgery date, and post-op appointments.

Our front desk receptionist is also able to schedule pre-op appointments, your surgery date, and post-op appointments. The patient coordinator will credential the office and the staff, including Dr. Robbins, so that you have a good understanding of what sets Des Moines Plastic Surgery apart from other local plastic surgery practices.

#desmoines #westdesmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #iowa

Once the customer feels comfortable with the information they have gathered, a consultation is scheduled by email or phone. Customers will always meet with Dr. Robbins and his Patient Care Coordinator for the initial consult.

#desmoinesplasticsurgery #desmoines #westdesmoines #iowa

Before Scheduling A Consultation

We encourage customers to do research online, talk with family and friends and verify the plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Please visit our website for more information about the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

This often prepares the customer for the consult and makes them feel more comfortable with Dr. Robbins.

#desmoines #westdesmoines #iowa #desmoinesplasticsurgery

A consultation is equal parts interview, learning experience, and time to see the possibilities of what cosmetic surgery can achieve for you. It’s a two-way conversation that should help you answer important questions:

Is cosmetic surgery the right option for me?
If so, which procedure or procedures are appropriate?
Who do I want to perform my procedure(s)?
Are the benefits worth the risks?
You get these answers by meeting with Dr. Robbins, a board certified plastic surgeon and his staff and asking more detailed questions. Expect each consultation to last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. It is important to remember you are consulting for elective cosmetic surgery, not covered by insurance.

How Is The PRP Hair Restoration Procedure Performed?

A small amount of blood (10mL- about a tablespoon) is drawn in our office just like a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge which will separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other blood components which are not utilized. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. An additional technique uses Microneedling or a Profractional laser to make microscopic entry points in the skin of the scalp. PRP is then injected into the scalp. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and the patient may drive themselves home. Early studies suggest that the procedure be repeated every three to six months for best results.

PRP in the field of hair restoration is in its early stages and although no long term studies have been performed as it relates to its effectiveness, there is substantial evidence that PRP is a promising treatment option for hair growth. Extensive clinical trials are not complete and medical data is not yet published to establish the absolute effectiveness of PRP therapy in hair restoration. PRP should not be considered a “cure” for hair loss and no guarantee can be made about its individual effectiveness. The kits used to make the PRP are FDA approved. The kits are sterile and isolate the PRP in a very effective way.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) in human blood contains many growth factors that stimulate stem cells which have the ability to stimulate new cell and tissue growth and regeneration as well as tissue healing in the environment or location that the PRP is placed. Multiple medical publications over the past two decades confirm the safety and use of PRP therapy. PRP has been used with great success over the past 20 years in the fields of plastic surgery, reconstructive and wound healing treatments, oral surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedics.

PRP as it relates to hair growth is an exciting new non-surgical option for patients who may benefit from stimulation of hair growth and preventing further loss. PRP hair restoration does not re-grow hair but uses your own blood products to increase hair thickness and stimulates existing hair follicles to grow and is best applied to small areas of thinning hair, receding hairlines, and loss of hair volume. PRP is not meant to replace FDA approved medications to prevent hair loss but may be used in addition to these medications or may be an option for those who wish to not take medications or have side effects from these medications. PRP will complement the effects of minoxidil and DHT blockers. PRP hair restoration is also a great option for those who are not candidates for surgery or who want to delay formal hair transplant surgery. PRP can also be used after Neograft hair transplant to improve graft survival and speed of growth as well as to help prevent ongoing hair loss.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the body’s natural healing elixir and acts as a natural fertilizer that stimulates stem cells to grow and repair aged and damaged tissue. Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) therapy can be a proactive treatment for patients experiencing thinning hair or as an adjunct to hair transplant procedures. PRP has been utilized for years as a way to stimulate growth of new cells in a variety of applications. PRP has recently received a great deal of press as it relates to treatments to restore youthful appearance to your skin. For example, Des Moines Plastic Surgery uses PRP with lasers and microneedling to expedite healing and for anti-aging and improvement in skin texture and tone.

A tummy tuck can address both the upper and lower abdomen. It’s important to note that tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for conventional weight loss. The best candidates will already be in good health and physical shape before electing surgery.

#desmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #boardcertifiedplasticsurgeon #cosmeticsurgery #tummytuck #minitummytuck #abdominoplasty #iowa

The goal of tummy tuck surgery is to redefine and reshape the abdomen through the removal of excess skin and fat and tightening of abdomen muscles.

You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have:

Localized fat deposits around your midsection
Excess or hanging skin around your abdomen
Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)

#tummytuck #tummytucksurgery #desmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #desmoinesmom #iowa

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

Prior surgery
Significant fluctuations in weight

#plasticsurgery #tummytuck #desmoines #iowa #desmoinesplasticsurgery #boardcertifiedplasticsurgeon

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.

In 2019, the Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure was the 5th most performed cosmetic surgical procedure performed on females in the US.

Consultation: the first step.

Many women start their surgical journey by talking to a friend or a relative who has already had a breast augmentation. While these are all good places to start, your most valuable resource is a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon.

A consultation doesn’t take long, and with an expert’s opinion, you’ll be better able to understand the benefits, risks, and discover which implant options are best for you and your body.
