The tummy tuck procedure can help women who have given birth to tighten, tone, and firm the stomach area. Dr Vinod Vij plastic surgeon of fortis glow removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles for a flatter appearance. Patients with excess flab in the tummy area may also add on a liposuction procedure to improve their results.
The pregnancy period and subsequent breastfeeding can take a harsh toll on the appearance of breasts, causing sagging and loss of volume. Dr. Vinod Vij offers several different shapes, sizes, and styles of breast implants to help you achieve a more youthful breast contour with your breast enlargement procedure.
The breast lift is a procedure designed to combat sagging. It is not a solution to small breasts, but it can create a more “perky” breast appearance. During this procedure, the skin is manipulated and the nipple is repositioned for a rejuvenated look.
Becoming a mother can mean weight gain from both pregnancy and lack of time to focus on your health and fitness. Liposuction helps you target problem areas such as the thighs, hips, and stomach.

The surgery corrects large or asymmetrical labia, or vaginal lips, reducing their external appearance and correcting external irregularities. The surgery can be performed on the labia minora, labia majora or both. As society becomes more comfortable with the idea of plastic surgery, we are exposed more frequently to others’ bodies through media such as movies and magazines. Consequently, women are learning that there are plastic surgery options available they didn’t know about before.
How do I know if I need CO2?
Anyone who has sun damaged, aging skin, irregularly pigmented skin, wrinkles, sagging, irregular texture of the skin or other skin condition that could be expected to be improved with this treatment that understands the risks, costs and time necessary to achieve the full benefit of the procedure and who has realistic expectations of the ultimate outcome. This is not a good treatment for skin of color. The reason is that this is an aggressive treatment that does result in prolonged healing of the surface. Pigmented skin tends to heal with hyperpigmentation and that does occur with this procedure upwards of 30% of the time. It can take many months of topical treatments and sometimes additional laser treatments to correct this. If this treatment is to be undertaken on dark skin, it will need to be part of a series of gentler treatments and not a single treatment. This is also not a treatment for any woman who is pregnant or anyone who has been treated with isotretinoin (or Accutane) within 6 months. In addition, if there are any conditions resulting in delayed or abnormal healing or a history of cold sores or herpes virus it is important to tell your physician at the pre-treatment stage to prevent complications.
How does CO2 work?
The C02 Carbon Dioxide (C02) Fractional Laser Resurfacing removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing) to help reduce “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentigines), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest.
What benefits can I expect?
Results that are expected are a very significant and noticeable reduction in the components of sun damaged skin such as “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentigines), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer. The skin will continue to improve for a period of 6 months following the procedure provided proper skincare is used and sun exposure is minimized. Sometimes the results are not significant until the 6th and even the 9th month, depending on the person’s age, their aftercare routine and their history of smoking
What are the risks and side effects?
The main negative of the CO2 is the downtime. Depending on the area and the aggressiveness of the treatment, it will take7-14 days for the skin to heal. This downtime will include significant redness crusting (possibly minor bleeding and oozing depending on treatment depth), dryness, and peeling and flaking (it is important to keep the skin moist after treatment). This does mean that social and work activities will have to be curtailed during this time, although you should be perfectly capable of working from home after the first day or two. It could be a very painful procedure but at Advanced Dermatology we provide full facial anesthesia so there should be no or minimal pain during the procedure or even in the hours following it. Other potential side effects may include but are not limited to: skin wound, infection and scarring, hypo and hyper-pigmentation.
Prior to treatment all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by your medical provider and cosmetic coordinator.
How will I look and feel after the treatment?
After the treatment, you will go home and sleep mostly for the first day. After the first day your skin will be raw and you will follow the instructions as to how to keep it healing maximally. We usually see you in the office on the first, second or third day after the procedure to ensure that healing is going according to plan. By the 7th day you can usually apply makeup or venture out in public, but your skin will still be pink and will be very sensitive for the better part of 1-3 months. It is most important to follow the instructions given to you by your provider. A strict skincare regimen and sun avoidance is recommended for best healing and optimal results for a period of 6 months following treatment. Failure to do so may result in sub-optimal results or side effects such as listed above. Your skin will continue to age as time goes on due to sun exposure, environmental stress, overall health and lifestyle choices such as smoking. To maintain your results we recommend a healthy skincare routine including cosmeceutical products, medical grade facials, and other procedures as directed by your provider.

Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It is a non-invasive, convenient method to reduce hair growth.
Laser Hair Removal Technique
Depending on the area being treated, the process may take anywhere from several minutes to several hours to complete. The most commonly used lasers utilize a low energy laser beam. This beam passes through the patient’s skin and is attracted to the pigment of the hair. The energy passes down the hair shaft and is absorbed by hair follicles that are in the active growth phase, thereby disabling the hair follicle in the deeper layer of the skin. The hair follicles that are in dormant phase are not affected by the treatment. In most cases, minimal pain should be experienced and no anesthesia is required.
Laser Hair Removal Benefits
- A non-invasive, gentle technique that reduces undesirable hair from most parts of the body
- Treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time
- May make skin color and complexion more uniform
- Minimal discomfort
- Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
- No downtime
Laser Hair Removal Considerations
- Laser hair removal is an ongoing process that requires multiple sessions because it only affects actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time. In addition, high energy levels are avoided so as to minimize the risk of injury to the adjacent skin.
- Occasionally patients may experience slight redness of the skin or mild swelling around the hairs.
- Sunscreen is recommended for any area treated that may be exposed to the sun
- Patients with darker skin may not respond well due to inadequate discrepancy between skin and hair colors
- Blonde or gray/white hair is less responsive due to lack of ample pigment in the hair
Pigmentation-sometimes referred to as “permanent make-up”- is a technique in which minute, metabolically inert pigment granules are implanted below the epidermis for cosmetic and/or corrective enhancement. This ancient Asian beautification practice has gained popularity around the world. Pigmentation is used to enhance facial features like eyebrows, lashes and lips; to improve conditions like scarring and vitiligo (uneven pigmentation); or to reconstruct the nipple/areola breast area.
Typically, two treatments are needed and the standard is four to six weeks apart but is contingent upon the health profile and age of the client and the procedure conducted.. Needles penetrate the skin a few millimeters, in what is basically a tattooing process.
No downtime and resumption of most normal activities within 24 hours for majority of patients.
Many pigment formulators use color additives that are on the FDA’s approved Food, Drug, and Cosmetic listings (as do SPCP supplier members,) however, the FDA does not approve the final product – the pigment used for tattooing – at this time.
The process is relatively quick. The process typically takes one and one half to two hours, although not all that time is afforded to tattooing; there are administrative and pre-procedure prep tasks associated with the service.
Skin returns to normal by the next day. Swelling or redness is generally mild.
Mild discomfort during procedure is avoided using topical and/or local anesthesia.
Good alternative for women with make-up allergies (although procedure is designed to enhance features, not replace make-up altogether).
Pigments are individually mixed for customized results, and designed to look natural. Results can be seen immediately (although full end result will be seen in about three weeks).
- Permanent procedure. Laser surgery is required to remove pigment.
- Patients must avoid direct sunlight, refrain from applying make-up, and wearing contact lenses for a few days, and avoid swimming for several weeks.
- A small number of patients may experience allergic reaction or infection.
- Scarring is possible due to practitioner error. ASAPS recommends this procedure be performed under medical supervision.
- Pigments may cause interference with cranial MRI scans.
- Needles inserted too deeply in the skin can cause bleeding, spreading of pigments, and damage to hair follicles.

SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
The Vitalize Peel is a unique break-through formulation of mild acids that provide a complete, consistent and safe peel with no “downtime” and predictable results for all skin types. This non-invasive peel creates a softer, smoother younger looking complexion. Used in combination with Microdermabrasion or alone, these unique plant and sugar acids break down the chemical bond of the intercellular glue that holds the dead skin cell layer together. Removing the top layer of skin (where most visible wrinkles are) allows the healthier skin cells to come through, giving a smoother texture to your skin and a glowing and radiant appearance. Your skin will look and feel more vibrant as sun damage is reduced and premature aging is addressed.
In a unique three-step process your skin becomes refined and firmer, sun-damaged skin cells are cast off, oil and congested pores are unblocked. We remove a micro-thin top layer of skin, which frees the skin of dead cellular build-up. This is followed by the application of an AHA appropriate for your special skin sensitivity and condition. This loosens the bond of dead cells within the pore. Finally, Cryogenic Therapy produces an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. Pores appear smaller and the skin is left toned and refreshed. The procedure is concluded with the application of an appropriate moisturizer and UV protection.

The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. Techniques for skin resurfacing have made enormous advances, allowing nearly everyone to achieve beautiful, healthier complexions. Many systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing. we offer t CO2 Fractionated Laser. This systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing.
The primary targets of Laser Skin Resurfacing include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose lower eyelid skin
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Pucker marks (smoker’s lines) and frown lines
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls
The greater the amount of the epidermis removed, the greater the results seen in terms of reduction of wrinkles, brown spots, and other superficial imperfections. With deeper penetration and removal of the epidermis, we see greater stimulation of the dermis which can react by rebuilding and restructuring lost collagen and elastin fibers. With the CO2 fractional laser treatments, only a “fraction” of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. It can therefore penetrate more deeply and is the treatment of choice for remodeling of acne scars and overall skin tightening.
CO2 Fractional Laser benefits
- Causes immediate skin tightening
- Reduces the appearance of large pores
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
- Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
- Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
- Most effects of the fractional treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation, which leads to continued inner tightening – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-6 months after the procedure.
