4 Top Tips for Losing Belly Fat

A flat stomach is the holy grail for anyone chasing the weight loss dream. The mid-section is often the first place for excess fat to settle and the last place that it leaves. Many clients come to Gorgeous Getaways concerned about the weight around their middle, especially sagging skin after dramatic weight loss. Tummy tuck and liposuction procedures are often sought to get rid of excess skin that can-not be removed by exercise and diet alone. But how do lose the weight around the tummy in the first place? Here are some science backed facts and guidelines to follow before you book your surgery.
Anatomy of belly fat

The mid-section contains two different types of fat: subcutaneous and visceral. Subcutaneous fat is under the skin, it can be pinched and often hangs over the belt in a pouch. Visceral fat is found deeper around vital organs. This fat causes the much loathed ‘beer belly’ look and creates a myriad of health problems. Storing visceral fat can alter the way our hormones use metabolic hormones, increasing the risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancers. So why does weight settle around the midsection and what can you do about it?

1. Middle age

With age, comes the middle-aged spread across our waistlines. Muscle mass diminishes and fat increases. Because our muscles are active tissues that burn energy and fat, when we lose that muscle it’s more than likely that the fat will pile on. Sex hormones also change as we age. Testosterone encourages men to accumulate fat around the abdomen, and the drop of estrogen in women deposits weight to the stomach.

  • Solution: weight training. Toning your large muscle groups at least twice a week will help to rebuild the muscle mass lost when you age. More muscles create a faster metabolism which helps your body to burn more fat.
2. Stress

When life gets busy, your body is burdened with stress. Your body is flooded with stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol that cause an imbalance of blood sugar and an inflammatory response. Stress can also cause a heightened appetite driving you to overeat and gain belly fat.

  • Solution: take time to relax. Do something that helps you to relax every day. Meditate, practice yoga, adopt a positive attitude or write in a diary. Whatever it takes to slow down and relax, find time to do it daily.
3. Sleep deprivation

When you’re sleep deprived the body will automatically search for an energy boost. Your brain will stimulate hormones that increase appetite, and have you searching for a quick hit of energy with foods loaded with carbs and sugar.

  • Solution: practice good sleep habits. Try to get to bed at the same time each night and avoid the stimulants that will disrupt your sleep like alcohol, coffee and heavy exercise. It can be helpful to set an alarm on your phone for 8.30pm to make sure you steer clear of these stimulants after that time.
4. Genetics

If your parents tend to carry weight around the waist, chances are you will too! These genetic traits have been inherited at birth but are only activated when you give them the chance to.

  • Solution: make a change. If eating processed foods and avoiding exercise comes naturally, it’s time for a change. Encourage yourself by serving meals on smaller plate, or by leaving your gym bag by the door as a reminder.

Gender Reassignment Surgery: Matching Physical Appearance with Natural Identity.

What does it mean to be trans gender? Every individual has a different experience, but generally a trans person is someone who does not identify with the gender they were born into and would like to make a permanent change.

Hormones and/or surgery can be used to change the gender assigned at birth, to the gender that is identified with. Male to female, or female to male.
The decision to embark upon a transitional journey is a personal one. In many cases, Gender Reassignment Surgery is essential for matching physical appearance with natural identity. Alternatively, less invasive and non-surgical procedures are available and can be enough to complete the transformation.

Gender Re-assignment Surgery

Any decision to make a surgical change to your body should not be taken lightly. Candidates for Gender Reassignment surgery must meet the guidelines created by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health or WRAP.
WRAP provides safe parameters for healthcare providers who perform sex change surgery and are recognised globally.

Male to Female:

If all the WRAP guidelines are correctly followed, then Gender Reassignment surgery can commence. This includes the following procedures:
Removal of testicles (orchidectomy)- the muscles and skin or the scrotum are opened, and testicles removed. The procedure is completed in less than one hour. Without testicles, testosterone is no longer produced so patients are advised on hormone replacement.
Removal of penis (penectomy)- the penis is surgically removed and the urethra redirected to allow for urination in a steady stream while sitting (urethroplasty).
Creation of a vagina (vaginoplasty)- the skin of the penis is turned inside out and will form the walls of the vagina.
Creation of a clitoris (clitoroplasty)- A clitoris is fabricated from the head of the penis that is the most sensitive part of the sex organ, and allows for sexual satisfaction and arousal.

Female to Male

If all the WRAP guidelines are correctly followed, then Gender Reassignment surgery can commence. This includes the following procedures:

Double Mastectomy- the surgical removal of both breasts
Hysterectomy- the surgical removal of the uterus
Ophorectomy– the surgical removal of the ovaries
Vaginectomy – surgical removal of the vagina
Metoidioplasty- creation of a ‘micropenis’ from the clitoris
Phalloplasty- Construction of a phallus
Scrotoplasty-creation of a scrotum with testicular implants

How much does it cost?

In the United States the cost for female to male reassignment surgery can be more than $50,000, and male to female up to $24,000. In the United Kingdom men wanting to transition will pay around $20,000. In some countries, like New Zealand, Gender Reassignment surgery is funded by the government, but candidates can remain on waiting lists for years.

It is now common for those looking for transition surgery, to look further abroad. A medical facilitator like Gorgeous Getaways has many years of experience organising surgeries, or aesthetic treatments in Thailand for trans individuals. In Phuket, male to female gender transition surgery costs around USD $13,000, and even less for aesthetic treatments.

Take the next step

If you would like to explore the services available to the trans community through Gorgeous Getaways contact their Gender Transition Specialist. Nikki has undergone her own transition and can offer valuable advice based on personal experience. You can view online pricing for Gender Transition surgery on the Taqtik Marketplace.

New Breasts: New Confidence for Laura!

Laura has been wanting to change her breast size ever since she was a teenager, and so after working hard and saving she decided to book a trip to Thailand to have a breast augmentation. This is her story, pictures and videos that show amazing results!

“I wanted to do this for myself, I knew this would be my breast size if I didn’t have the procedure, so I wanted to save up the money and do it for me!”

After the procedure Laura was delighted with the results from her Breast Augmentation, feeling that it was better than she could have expected.
Her biggest concern pre-surgery had been the fear of being put under aesthetic, but with the support of the hospital staff and her mum who came along as support, she felt safe and secure.
Laura’s Client Service Manager in Thailand visited Laura and her mum regularly at their accommodation and took them to lunch with other clients who were having their own surgical procedures.
The doctors and nurses took great care of her, and she would feel confident in using a medical facilitator like Taqtik again if she wanted another procedure.

“The hospital care was better than I could have imagined, I was looked after extremely well. All the doctors, and nurses were really supportive”

She has had great reactions from friends and family, who all agree that her new breasts look very natural. This is exactly the look that Laura was hoping to achieve. Six months after her procedure in Thailand, Laura is seeing the world from the deck of a super yacht in Spain!

“Everything is fantastic! I have healed so well and I’m really happy! They look and feel so much more natural and have dropped lots which I’m happy with!”

A Face Lift Turns Back the Clock for 70-year-old Sandy

70-year-old Sandy came home to Australia from her surgical holiday as if from a time machine!

Sick and tired of looking worn out and drained, she embarked on a surgical journey that would take years off her face. Looking for international health care solutions she contacted the care team at Taqtik, who connected her with the right surgeon, destination and accommodation for her budget and surgical goals.

After her consultation Sandy choose to undergo multiple procedures- a full face lift, an upper and lower blepharoplasty and a sub-mental lipectomy with great results.

We asked Sandy to share her experience, and this is her story.

” Arriving at the huge airport I was met by a lovely man named Augustine. He was so very helpful to both my partner and I. He was an absolute gem of a man. He was really like a tour guide, explaining what everything was that we observed on our long journey to the Hotel.
He was always on time to pick me up for appointments at the hospital. He even took us on a tour of KL, to Vatu Caves, a site I really wanted to see.
If I lived in KL I’d want to have him as my personal driver. Such a pleasant man.
The Client Service Manager, Kumari, I just loved this lady. She was such a calming influence on me when I was admitted, and she was by my side when I was absolutely terrified of having the staples removed.
She was constantly in touch with me every day ensuring my wounds were healing and that all my needs were met. Another gem on your team. I will consider her a friend for life. She is such an empathic, caring lady and a very good nurse.
The staff at Beverley Wilshire hospital were amazing and very gentle people. They cared for me very well. As for Dr Nasir, well what a gentleman. I loved him, and I’m so very happy with the results of my facelift. I don’t feel like a 70-year-old anymore.
I would highly recommend Gorgeous Getaways to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery.
I would also recommend Lanson Place Ambassador Row where we stayed. My second time there. It was so well maintained, the food was great, the staff were very helpful and it was CHEAP! “

Why a face lift?

As we age, our facial skin loosens, and wrinkles and the muscles of the neck may weaken as well. Anything that can cause the skin to lose elasticity will hasten the ageing process, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity.
While a face lift cannot stop the aging process, it can often make a person appear to be a decade younger than their actual age.
Face lift Cosmetic Surgery can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck). A double chin can also be improved at the same time by a surgical procedure called submental lipectomy.
To get the best results for a facial rejuvenation, face lifts are frequently done in conjunction with other procedures such as upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Your surgeon may also recommend injections of cosmetic fillers for reducing fine lines, deep creases in your forehead or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Will a Face lift improve skin tone?

Contrary to popular opinion, the texture of the skin will not be changed by a face lift. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original texture, no matter how tight the skin is pulled.
A face lift will not give someone beautiful skin unless they have beautiful skin to begin with. If you have a skin issue that you would like to improve, it may be worth considering a skin treatment such as laser resurfacing in combination with a facelift to improve the texture of the skin and smooth skin wrinkles.

Best candidates for a face lift

Both men and women have face lifts, with the best candidates being those whose face and neck has excess fat, lines and has begun to sag. The average age for patients is 40-50 years, but older patients have also had successful face lifts. In general, the best candidates for face lift are:


• People with good facial skin elasticity
• In good physical health
• Psychologically stable
• Non-smokers
• Wanting to improve the appearance of their face and neck
• Well informed in regard to the procedure’s outcome
• Having realistic expectations


And generally, have:


• A deep line, or fold, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
• Jowls, or loss of a well-defined jaw line associated with youthfulness.
• Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the “highlight” areas of the cheekbones.
• Loose skin, wrinkles, vertical “cords” or excess fatty tissue in the neck.

Preparation for a face lift

Before you undergo a face lift, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking. If your surgeon decides that you can have a face lift, discuss the procedure thoroughly with them before deciding if you want to go through with the procedure. You may still change your mind even after discussing the procedure with your surgeon.
Your consultation with the surgeon will give you a detailed understanding of the treatment – the extent of surgery, your health evaluation, your expectations and exactly where the areas of the face will be treated. When you are happy with what has been discussed, you will sign a booking form for the operation.
Your surgeon should be able to answer any questions that you have about face lifts including questions about what to expect during and after a face lift and the complications or problems that sometimes occur with face lifts. You may also take information from this website to your appointment to discuss with him.
You will have a physical evaluation of the areas to be treated. At this appointment you and your surgeon will discuss your goals, and last queries you have and finalize the plan for surgery. From this examination, he can determine the best procedure to use, and then explain it to you in detail, including the benefits and limitations. The surgeon may also recommend a combination of the face lift with eyelid blepharoplasty, browlift or submental liposuction, for a better facial profile.
It is important to stress the importance of not smoking before a face lift procedure. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and make complications more likely, including post-operative chest procedures.

Surgical Procedure

The classic facelift, or SMAS, is recommended by the surgeons. This is performed by making an incision at the temples behind the hairline. The incision typically extends downward, along the natural creases in the skin, in front or on the edge of the ear, in the crease of the ear lobe, and behind the ear. Making the incision in the natural creases helps hide scarring after surgery. The surgeon then separates the skin and muscles of the face from the deeper facial tissues.
In some cases, the skin is removed, in others the skin and muscle tissues are reshaped. The underlying muscle may be tightened with the skin, or separately. After the tightening or removal of excess skin, the skin is re-draped and sutured.

Taqtik facelift-illustration 4
Taqtik facelift-illustration 4
Face lift patients normally undergo general anaesthesia. Time in surgery is approximately 4 to 6 hours. In some cases, drainage tubes are left in place under certain areas of the skin for about 2 days to reduce post-surgical swelling. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, a face lift may be performed under local anaesthesia—while you are numbed and sedated, but awake, or a light general aesthetic, where you are lightly sleeping. You should discuss anaesthesia options with your plastic surgeon and the anaesthesiologist.

Recovery and Post-op care

After surgery, patients may experience moderate swelling of the eyelids and other facial areas. Immediately after surgery a large dressing is usually applied, but this will depend on which surgeon is doing the surgery as they all work differently. It is removed typically within 2 days after surgery and may be replaced with an elastic wrap. Any stitches will be removed after 6 days unless you have dissolving sutures. There is normally some discomfort following face lift surgery, which can be managed with medications.
You will be moving around in a couple of days, but we advise you to relax for a week or so. Strenuous activity should be avoided until the bruising and swelling has subsided. This can take four to six weeks; however, within two weeks the swelling should be reduced enough to engage in some social activities. Many patients prefer to delay significant social activities for four weeks after surgery.
The medical facilitator you choose through Taqtik will provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon.

Julianaa’s Medical Travel Tips!

For the past ten years Taqtik International Co-Ordinator Julianaa has been working with partners like Gorgeous Getaways who bring people froom all over the world seeking cosmetic surgery in Malaysia & Thailand. Julianaa is genuinely passionate about helping clients to achieve their personal dreams, and has learned a tremendous amount about medical travel. Julianaa shares her account of working in the travel industry, how to deal with nerves before surgery and what to expect when you travel with an experienced Taqtik partner like Gorgeous Getaways!

julianaa

 

Meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures has always been a passion of mine. I get a lot of enjoyment from working with partners like Gorgeous Getaways on the frontline who help clients to co-ordinate their holidays.

When I started in this industry I had no idea that medical tourism would be such an amazing industry, and how much it means to the people who use it. It’s very rewarding working with amazing surgeons, nurses and clients.

Although I had read about cosmetic surgery nothing prepared me for the experience of working with patients and seeing the results with my own eyes.

The results I have seen from surgeons have been true works of art.

Our partners like Goreous Getaways bring clients from various backgrounds and different countries. Young or old, everyone had their own personal reasons for wanting surgery.

I have learned that whatever their reason, the point of the matter is, it was their journey, their desire and their reason to have it done. One should not be quick to judge.

In majority of the cases, some clients arrive with Gorgeous Getaways with some form of anxiety and excitement, which is completely natural. The healing process for each individual differs from person to person. Some faster than others. It all depends on whether they have any health issues and what kind of lifestyle they lead.

Julianaa’s Medical Travel Tips

  • Medical History- It is very important that you provide your surgeon with “all the details” regarding your health issues when filling out their forms. If you have had previous surgeries and had problems post-recovery let your surgeon know about it. This will give your surgeon a better understanding on how to help you best.
  • Ask Questions- Ask as many questions as you want during your pre-consult. It’s your right to do so, and it’s the surgeons obligation to answer all your questions. Prepare your list of questions before meeting.
  • Go Slow- Whatever procedure was proposed by your surgeon, you need to be 100% sure that it is what you want to have done as well. It’s always good, where possible to give yourself some time to think about it.
  • Be Sure- If you aren’t very sure about having the surgery done, for whatever the reason, then don’t. It’s always good to have it done once you are ready mentally and physically for this. The surgeon’s will always be there, no matter how long you take to decide.
  • Post recovery- Make sure you follow your surgeon’s advice. This is where you should once again ask him all your questions.

Questions to ask your Surgeon:

  • How long will it be before the swelling goes down?
  • Are there certain kinds of foods that will help the healing process?
  • What are the types of vitamins that are beneficial?
  • How soon can you start running or doing exercise?
  • What to look out for once you are back home?
  • Talk to your GP- Should you have a wound break-down after you return home, show your doctor a letter from the surgeon.
  • Hygiene- Make sure you wash your hands before applying any ointment to a wound. Hygiene is very important for wound healing and to prevent any infection. Do not at any time touch your healing wound with unwashed fingers, especially right after surgery during recovery.

I am very glad to be part of this industry of being able to work with great international partners like Gorgeous Getaways who help a person in my very small way. In the process, I got to meet some truly wonderful people. Wishing you all the very best in your journey.

Grandparents Susan and Kelvin traveled together from Australia, to Phuket, Thailand for cosmetic surgery. Upon arriving home they wanted to share their story, especially with those who had concerns about travelling for surgery…

Top three most popular cosmetic surgery procedures

Your Gorgeous Getaways customer care team member Mel, is the first person you’ll speak to when you make an inquiry. At the coal face of GG operations Mel fields hundreds of inquiries, and provides our clients with the best advice and the best price available. We asked Mel what most people want to know when they contact us.

Every day at Gorgeous Getaways we receive numerous requests for Cosmetic Surgery Procedures at all of our exciting destinations, Malaysia, Thailand and Mexico. Our top three procedures requested would be a Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck and Face lift procedure. The Tummy Tuck would take out the number one spot.

Once you have chosen your procedure, we can assist you further with information on pricing, our fabulous destinations and any general questions you may have.  To move forward with your request for a Firm quote we will request specific personal information relating to your treatment chosen. Your quote will be provided to you once your medical information and photos have been assessed by our surgeons.

Breast Augmentation

A breast augmentation procedure enhances the size and shape of your breasts. It can also balance out a difference in the size of your breasts. During the procedure your surgeon will place a silicone implant behind breast tissue, or muscle. The overall goal is to have your breasts looking as natural as possible, while enlarging them to your desired size.

Face-lift

A face-lift procedure is generally chosen to help tighten loose skin and minimize those wrinkles that appear as we age around the Face and Neck area. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck).

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) procedure can have several different techniques used depending on your needs, this could be a Full Tummy Tuck, Extended Tummy Tuck or a Mini Tummy Tuck.  Sometimes this can be performed in conjunction with liposuction to help contour your body.

Gorgeous Getaways connects you with leading hospitals and specialist surgeons offering a wide range of cosmetic surgery choices. Talk to our customer care team to discuss your needs further, or search are available packages today!

Sheree’s Face-lift Cosmetic Surgery Holiday

Sheree’s face-lift cosmetic surgery holiday was a leap of faith. The idea of a face-lift isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. A common concern about cosmetic surgery is that it will change the facial features that define you. That plastic surgery will make you look plastic and fake.

Sheree had all of these concerns, but she took the leap with Gorgeous Getaways and booked her face-lift with Dr Jalil in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Sheree’s Story

I was always open minded about plastic surgery but the idea of a face lift use to scare me as I used to think that I would hate if a surgeon changed my features. Over the last ten years I have seen Dr Jalil twice on NZ TV and I read about him in magazines. I was very impressed with his work, experience and how humble he came across on several programs.

A More Affordable Option

When I turned 50, I noticed the aging signs on my neck and eye lids. I decided to be brave and treat myself to a neck and eye lift and some liposuction. I knew I could not afford it in NZ and I trusted what I knew about Dr Jalil.

I booked myself in just before the new year and decided to go to Malaysia on my own, just to have proper rest and focus on healing and I was lucky, my family respected my decision of doing this on my own. I was totally impressed by the way I was met and the service I got from the moment I arrived in KL till the moment I left.

Client Service at it’s Best

Kumari, the PR nurse who looked after me was wonderful, she knows what she’s doing and she gives outstanding care. The nurses were outstanding and Dr Jalil’s work on my face is so natural and it took at least 10 years off my face. He is an excellent surgeon and I’m thrilled with my results. After my operation, I rested well for a good week and did so little then slowly during the second week, I started going out and experiencing Malaysia. I loved my experience and how Gorgeous Getaways looked after me.

The Results

It’s now exactly one month since I had my mini face lift and I’m back at work looking younger and enjoying it. My skin feels a bit tight but the doctor told me that, this feeling will last about 3 months before it all goes back to normal.

I highly recommend Dr Jalil and his team, I found them to be professional, experienced and they delivered exactly what I wanted. I had a very positive experience and I plan to go back to do some dental work. I’m glad I went on my own, it worked for me,I love my own company and I focused only on my healing rather than being touristic.
