    "I definitely recommend Dr.s Bancroft and Feldman. I have had work done by both of them. Dr. Feldman fine-tuned a tummy tuck I had done by a different doctor, and he did an awesome job. Dr. Bancroft has done liposuction on my tummy and back, and he did a great job as well. I have had Botox injections from both doctors, and I'm always happy with that too. I find Dr.s Bancroft and Feldman to be highly-skilled and detail-oriented. They really listen to their patients, and they truly care about getting the best results for each individual patient. They are both easy to talk to, and make me feel at ease. And the office staff is great! They are efficient and professional, and the office atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. Although I live near downtown Houston, I happily travel to Sugar Land to see Dr.s Bancroft and Feldman!"

  • Common Misperceptions about Liposuction

    One of thecommon impressions people have about liposuction is that it is a magic answer to being overweight. People often think that losing weight can be accomplished simply and easily via surgery, either bariatric or liposuction. But for people who are truly overweight or obese, liposuction is not the answer, and it’s important to understand why.

    While both men and women have common trouble spots for weight gain, when a person puts on a great deal of weight, it won't all be in one spot. He or she will be heavier in the face, the arms, the legs, the abdomen - over the entire body. So to take weight off evenly for a completely slim and graceful appearance, regular dieting or exercise must be done. Bariatric surgery, as a form of enforced dieting, will also accomplish this.

    Liposuction is not a weight loss program. Liposuction is a solution for removing fat from targeted areas after general weight loss has been accomplished or when diet and exercise alone fail to create the body silhouette the patient is looking to have. The ideal candidate for liposuction is a patient who is young, has some stubborn fat deposits, and whose skin is still elastic.

    The last point - about skin quality - is important becauseliposuction will not do anything about stretched out skin caused from pregnancy or weight gain. Liposuction is the removal of fat deposits, not loose skin. With a large enough weight gain, skin will stretch beyond its ability to return to its original condition. In these cases, there isan additional need for a tummy tuck or other targeted surgical removal of loose skin.

    Timing is important for any surgery as well.Liposuction shouldn’t be done right after you have a baby, even if you’re sure your pregnancy days are over because your body hasn’t returned to its normal state, and, until that happens, you will not know where you need to focus your attention, whether through diet, exercise, or surgery.

    Finally,liposuction doesn’t mean you can strike exercise from your routine. It isn’t a one-and-done answer to problems of age and weight gain. Although ourpatients do report satisfaction with their liposuction results over the long term, your body is constantly changing and evolving. There is not one-time answer for any physical issue, and exercise is an important part of overall wellness, not just physical fitness.

    If you are in good physical condition but would like to address some trouble spots or fat deposits that have proved impossible for you to fix, we at Bancroft Feldmanwould love to talk to you aboutwhat liposuction can do for you, your appearance, and your overall lifestyle.

  • What Are the Long-term Results of Liposuction?

    We are all familiar with weight loss in America - both the successes and the failures. Unfortunately for many people, even the most disciplined, diet and exercise will not get rid of the last layer of stubborn fat that remains. To accomplish that they will need surgery; however, patients who are considering liposuction as a way to fix their figure problems want to know that the procedure will have long-term positive effects.

     

    Liposuction is the surgical and permanent removal of fat cells. Your plastic surgeon will make a small incision in the area or areas you’ve chosen to target for body sculpting, insert a thin tube called a cannula, and then vacuum out the fat cells through a flexible pipe. After liposuction, those fat cells are gone and will not return. This means that any weight gain after the surgery will occur much less in those areas, as there are fewer fat cells remaining there to expand with new fat. It doesn’t mean that weight gain anywhere is off the table. To maintain your improved figure, diet and exercise will continue to be important parts of your lifestyle.

     

    At Bancroft Feldman we advise our Houston area patients to have realistic expectations of their liposuction procedure. Those fat cells are gone and will not grow back, but if a patient goes on to gains a significant amount of weight after their procedure, new fat cells can form, and new figure problems will emerge.

     

    Some people think that liposuction will result in weight loss, but you will probably not notice much of a difference on the scale immediately after the surgery. Typically though, several pounds of fat are removed with each liposuction session. Numbers are not everything, though. You will notice a sleeker, more sculpted look to your body. That is what the liposuction procedure is designed to do.

     

    Most of our patients are very excited to see their new bodies after liposuction, but it’s important to remember that the swelling from the surgery will mask the results in the short term. Most patients see improvement within the first week or two and Within one to three months, patients will be able to fully see and enjoy the results they chose to pursue. Get ready to buy a new wardrobe to highlight your new body!

     

    Finally, it’s also important to remember that loose or sagging skin cannot be fixed by liposuction and may require a surgical procedure called an abdominoplasty, more commonly known as atummy tuck to directly remove this excess skin.

     

    If you’d like to see certain trouble spots on your body gone permanently and are interested in investing in a sleeker figure, contact Bancroft Feldman and make an appointment with one of our experienced surgeons. We can make your body image dreams a reality.

  • What Is a Mommy Makeover?

     

    Most people would agree that there is little that is more beautiful than a young mother with her first child. While pregnancy is not always enjoyable or pleasant, the hormonal changes to a woman’s body often give her a “glow” that is lovely to see, and when her child is placed in her arms to look at and to love, it’s a moment in a lifetime. Anyone is lucky to see it.

    2469222014_d8768c61a1_z.jpg

    Those same hormonal changes that help to prepare a woman’s body for childbirth and nourish her baby both inside and outside the womb, alter her in ways women do not understand until they experience it for themselves. Skin and muscle ligaments soften, stretch, and sometimes even tear. Pregnancy is a dramatic and sometimes traumatic process, but nursing a baby is a taxing one too. After all of this, few women look or feel the same.

    A “mommy makeover” is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore a woman’s body as closely as possible to her pre-pregnancy state. The physical changes described above often result in loose skin, abdominal fat build up, and sagging breasts, particularly when a woman has gone through multiple pregnancies. Some women assume that when they’ve birthed and then weaned their last child, they can pull themselves into pre-baby shape with the right healthy food choices, exercise regimen, and body creams, but they do not understand that skin and muscle is not like a rubber band. It stretches, yes, but it doesn’t just bounce back with hard work and good intentions.

    The mommy makeover involves both an abdominoplasty ortummy tuck (with potential liposuction to remove any stubborn abdominal fat) and abreast lift. The abdominoplasty procedure removes any sagging skin, stretch marks, and bulging and restores the tummy to its previous flat condition. Breasts lifts are used to tighten lax breast ligaments and help the breasts regain their previous “perky” look. Breast augmentation can also be done at the same time to add fullness.

    Not every woman is a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Women should wait until they’ve completed their childbearing and are certain they do not want to have more children before looking to this as an option. And, of course, they should be in overall good health before considering surgery, as with any procedure.

    If you think you are alone in your dissatisfaction with your post-pregnancy body, you are not. Mothers are seeking this type of surgical makeover in greater and greater numbers every year and learning what it can do for their appearance and their confidence. Motherhood doesn’t have to involve a matronly figure. To learn what Bancroft Feldman can do to help you turn back the clock on your body,contact us today.

  • What Is the Difference between a Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck?

    Many people who are not satisfied with the appearance of their abdominal area wonder about the options they have for improving or revitalizing their bodies. Here we will explore the differences between some of the more common plastic surgery procedures: liposuction and the abdominoplasty or, as it’s more colloquially known, the “tummy tuck.”

    But, first, what do these procedures have in common? They are both used to remove abdominal fat and return the body to a more youthful looking state. Often as people age and experience life events like childbirth, their bodies change as well, and the abdominal area often takes the brunt. While many of our patients are active people who exercise regularly and moderate their eating patterns, some types of wear and tear can’t really be erased with simple diet and exercise modification. And while once clothing may have covered up many smaller figure issues, the fashions of today are more designed to showcase rather than hide.

    The plastic surgeons at Bancroft Feldman are adept at turning back the clock in cases like these. Let’s break down the options.

     

    Liposuction

    During a liposuction procedure, our surgeons remove fat deposits using a small tube called a cannula. Through small incisions (less than 2mm) a vacuum mechanism is used to reduce the fat deposits. This is particularly helpful for stubborn areas that have proven resistant to other methods of slimming down. Typically patients who have liposuction do not experience a great deal of scarring because the incisions made are so tiny.  

    This is a useful procedure for patients who are healthy and in good shape but need assistance in creating that more ideal slim form. It is not ideal for people who are heavily overweight or obese or women whose abdominal muscles or skin have been excessively stretched from pregnancy. In those cases abdominoplasty is necessary.

     

    Tummy Tuck

    With an abdominoplasty, or what people colloquially refer to as a “tummy tuck,” the procedure is more involved. If the patient has an excess of skin, stretch marks, or very stretched stomach muscles, surgery is required to correct this. The incisions made during a tummy tuck flatten the stomach, narrow the waist, and remove both excess fat and skin. The belly button will also be repositioned and re-sculpted to match the patient’s new slimmer form. An abdominoplasty takes several hours to accomplish, and the recovery time afterward is longer than with liposuction, but for the appropriate patient, the magnitude of the change can be much greater as all components of the abdomen - fat, skin, and muscles - are improved.

    Liposuction is often used in tandem with an abdominoplasty to give the abdominal area the best post-surgical appearance possible, but one is certainly not a substitute for the other. Drs. Bancroft and Feldman are more than happy to consult with patients to discuss creating a more ideal body and how that may be best accomplished using either or both of the above procedures. Contact them today to take that step towards the  younger and slimmer body you once had and can have again.
