Isc2013

Tummy tucks – also known as abdominoplasties – have grown significantly in popularity over the past 15 years, and they are now one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Part of the reason why tummy tucks have grown in popularity over the years is our increased focus on health and fitness, but another big reason is that tummy tucks can provide dramatic results. There have been recent advances in the procedure that offer better pain control and a better recovery. Now may be a good time to take a fresh look at some of the most common questions that patients ask us about abdominoplasties.

Your Tummy Tuck Options and Unique Recovery

There are several variations of the tummy tuck The full version removes loose sagging skin from the upper and lower abdomen and tightens the corset-like abdominal muscles to provide a flatter contour. The mini-tummy tuck focuses on excess skin and fat beneath the belly button and requires less recovery time than the circumferential body lift which expands the traditional abdominoplasty to include loose skin and fat in the thighs, buttocks, and lower back. Doctor also offers the extended tummy tuck, which involves the hips, outer thighs, and/or flanks (love handles).

A tummy tuck can also be combined with liposuction, breast surgery, or a lift procedure to address multiple body concerns at once. The mommy makeover is a common combination plastic surgery that cuts back on recovery time and potential complications.

Your tummy tuck recovery will depend on the variation of abdominoplasty. Each patient and procedure are unique. Doctor will explain what you can expect while you heal and the timeline of your recovery during your in-depth consultation. You’ll discuss your medical history, cosmetic goals, and determine if you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck. Certain medications and health conditions can interfere with recovery or increase the risk of complications.

How to Prepare for the Healing Process

Staying hydrated and eating a nutritional diet is a crucial part of recovery. You can prepare your home ahead of time by making and freezing meals. You’ll need to have a friend or family member to help you during the first few days after your tummy tuck. If you have small children, you’ll need to arrange for childcare because you’ll be limited on how much you can lift and need to get the appropriate amount of rest. Doctor may prescribe medications to help you deal with discomfort, but over-the-counter options can work well to manage pain and swelling.

Week 1

An abdominoplasty doesn’t typically require an overnight stay. You’ll need someone to drive you home and help you for the first three days. A low-sodium diet can reduce swelling. You can expect to experience some degree of discomfort and have bruising, swelling, and tightness in the treated area. A drain is often used after a tummy tuck to keep excess fluid from the incision site and body. These drains may be needed for three days to a full week. For more details on Tummy Tuck check Cibsleh

Your bandages will need to be kept clean and replaced every other day after your tummy tuck. Change them gently and as directed by Doctor. A compression garment is used to help recovery and swelling. You’ll need to wear it during the first few weeks at all times. You may sponge bathe or shower carefully 24-48 hours after your abdominoplasty but wait to do so if you’re feeling lightheaded.

During this resting period, stay slightly bent at the waist, which can be done using pillows to prop you up. Use a cold compress to aid discomfort and help address swelling. Your activities are significantly limiting during this first phase of recovery. Don’t drive or exercise, though some walking is recommended to increase blood flow. Avoid chores, smoking, and drinking alcohol as well as take 1-2 weeks away from work.

Week 2

You can return to your regular diet during the second week of recovery. You’ll likely still have swelling, but the pain, tightness, and any bruising should start to fade. Lightly massaging the area can improve healing and scar treatments can be used such as silicone sheets, but these should only be used after speaking with our plastic surgeon. The compression garment is still needed during this phase, but you can return to work between ten and 14 days after your plastic surgery. However, if you’ve had additional procedures such as a butt lift, breast augmentation, or liposuction, your recovery may require more time. Avoid exercise and stay away from drinking and smoking.

Make sure you stay well hydrated and take short walks.

Weeks 3-4

A compression garment may be necessary for up to four weeks after your tummy tuck. You can return to everyday activities and light exercise during this time but maintain a well-balanced diet to keep your results and stay within your ideal weight range. Sit-ups, weight lifting and other like workouts should be avoided for several weeks or until you’ve been cleared to do so by Doctor. Bruising and swelling will be significantly better, and you’ll notice your results settling in.

A majority of  patients go back to work within two to four weeks, but that depends on your profession. Someone who works a desk job will return to work before someone whose job requires heavy lifting and involves strenuous activities.

Weeks 6-8

The entire tummy tuck recovery process will generally take between six and eight weeks. You’ll still need to stay away from lifting heavy objects, strenuous activities, and running during this time, but your day-to-day schedule will be back to normal. This healing timeline varies by patient and procedure, and you’ll start to enjoy your final results within this time frame as well.

Hyundai Xcent First Look Review

Painpeters

Hyundai Xcent Overview

The Xcent is Hyundai’s answer to the hot selling Maruti Suzuki Dzire. But, while the latter sells over 15,000 units a month on an average, the Hyundai doesn’t even manage to ship 3,000. And there are two main reasons for that. The bigger issue with the Xcent has been its styling; not only did it look identical to its hatch sibling, the Grand i10, from the front, it also had an uninspiring looking rear end.

The second problem, which is a more recent one, is the high off-take for the car in the taxi segment. This has clearly affected the desirability aspect of the compact sedan among private car buyers. Now, one might argue that the Innova and the Dzire remain unaffected by this ‘yellow plate’ crisis, but then, the Xcent just isn’t as strong a brand as the latter two. View offers on Hyundai Xcent.

Hyundai Xcent Exteriors

The big changes on the new Xcent are on the outside. It gets a new, more aggressive looking front bumper that also holds an all-new, chrome-garnished grille. The idea here is to make the Xcent look more like the Verna and the Elantra instead of the Grand i10 upon which the compact sedan is based. And with it, the car brings in an air of elegance to the design. There’s no change to the headlamp, but the fog lamps are new and the new Xcent gets LED DRLs too.

The rear styling sees a significant change as well. The tail lamps now run into the boot lid and add visual width to the car. The boot lid itself has been completely redesigned and is less curvaceous than before. It gets a chrome strip and along with a flatter looking bumper, it gives the Xcent much-needed freshness.There’s no change to the profile of the car, including the alloy wheel design, which is carried as is. But, look closer and you’ll see the addition of the ‘shark-fin’ antenna instead of a regular one.

Hyundai Xcent Interiors

Contrasting the relatively flashy exterior is a cabin that’s sophisticated and like the Grand i10, offers segment-leading quality. Once in, you’re welcomed by ergonomic perfection. All the controls fall to hand easily and things will feel familiar quickly even if you’ve never owned a Hyundai before. To know more info on Hyundai Xcent check Midasedu

The instrument cluster does look dated now, but it’s easy on the eyes. However, Hyundai could have at least added a distance-to-empty and average fuel efficiency display to the MID with the facelift. An opportunity missed! Existing owners will immediately notice that the car gets new pure beige upholstery, which does make the cabin feel classier. What should have been added is adjustable headrests up front and height-adjustable seatbelts – things which wouldn’t add much to the cost, but would add a lot of convenience. Apart from that, though, the seats are quite comfortable for city driving and can support large frames well, albeit snugly.

Right from the Getz, we’ve seen Hyundai’s small cars make the best use of the cabin space available. Two six footers can sit one behind the other and the rear seat uses the car’s width well enough to free up just about enough shoulder room for three abreast. A middle occupant can be seated fairly comfortably, but only over short journeys. The fixed central head restraint is too small for adults and the rear AC console does intrude into the leg space. All four doors get adequate space for 1-litre bottles, with more room for knick-knacks too. Boot space remains the same at 407-litres and three medium sized bags can fit in with ease. However, larger suitcases can be a bit tricky, because the wheel arches do eat into the trunk space.

Technology

Features like automatic climate control and rear AC vents are carried on like before and as you’d expect, the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system offered with the updated Grand i10 finds a place here too. The display is very easy to use and gets the added benefit of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even the touch response is good and we found no issues with lag, while the addition of voice commands adds some more convenience. The automatic variant, which isn’t available with this screen gets a mobile phone dock atop the dashboard, which is a thoughtful touch.

You do have to take your eyes off the road to use the touchscreen, but it’s been well-integrated and doesn’t look like an aftermarket add-on. The Xcent is still expectedly feature loaded, but Hyundai has sliced off goodies like the auto-dimming interior rearview mirror and the cluster ionizer (keeps the air inside the car clean and odour free). These features certainly added to the Xcent’s value proposition, but their absence won’t be a deal breaker for most.

Hyundai Xcent Engine

The Xcent car is powered by the new 1.2-litre diesel. It’s a three-cylinder engine that makes 75bhp. But, thanks to the additional torque compared to the older 1.1-litre engine, it hauls the Xcent around with more ease. It isn’t exactly quick. But, the improvement in drivability is significant. It makes driving the new car in the city and out on the highway a more relaxing affair.

The turbo lag is less pronounced, the throttle response is crisper and the car now requires less shifts to keep the desired pace. The new engine works best between 1,600 to 4,000rpm. Revving it higher is a bit pointless, as things only get louder with no meaningful increase in the rate of progress. The gearshifts meanwhile are short throw and precise and the clutch is light too, which works well in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Given that Hyundai hasn’t bothered with other mechanical changes on the new Xcent, the ride and handling remains almost the same as before. The ride is still plush at low speeds, and with decent visibility and maneuverability, the Xcent makes for an easy car to live within the city. But, the soft suspension setup doesn’t cope very well with the increase in speed.

Hyundai Xcent Driving

In terms of ride and handling, the new Xcent is pretty similar to the older car. So, the ride at low speeds is quiet and comfortable but it does get noisy and a bit harsh at higher speeds and over poor roads. The handling, thanks to the lack of connect from both the steering and the chassis in general, is not the most involving. The new Xcent will go around bends without feeling wayward or loose, yes, but it’s not something you look forward to like you would in the Amaze or even the Dzire.

Hyundai Xcent Safety

Hyundai now offers dual front airbags as standard across the Xcent’s variant range. The top three variants also get rear parking sensors, while the top two get a reversing camera with the feed relayed to the touchscreen infotainment system. However, while ABS was a standard offering, it’s now limited to the range-topping SX and SX (O) grade. At the least, ABS should have been optional for the lower variants.

Hyundai Xcent Cost in Bangalore

Hyundai Xcent On Road Price is 6,85,410/- and Ex-showroom Price is 5,65,354/- in Bangalore. Hyundai Xcent comes in 5 colours, namely Wine Red,Marina Blue,Sleek Silver,Star Dust,Polar White. Hyundai Xcent comes with FWD with 1197 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 82 bhp@6000 rpm and Peak Torque 114 Nm@4000 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Hyundai Xcent comes with Manual Transmission with FWD .

Hyundai Xcent Conclusion

Hyundai is calling this one a stylish family sedan for the young and modern Indian family. Phew, that is a very long tag line. But, the good news for Hyundai is that the new Xcent comes close to justifying it. It’s more stylish that before, yes. And since it can seat four (yes, the seats are comfy too), it’s good for a nuclear family. As for the young and modern, well almost every car in this class now has a similar feature / tech list. So, there’s no real USP there. Our suggestion would be to buy it if you are looking for a no-nonsense car with good service backup.

Midasedu

Nissan Micra Active Overview

Nissan Micra Active 2018 is essentially an updated version of the previous version. Changes to the hatchback include additional comfort and safety features. That said, it does not receive any styling or design updates on the outside as well as inside. The engine set-up, including the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines, has been retained and it continues to be offered with the manual as well as CVT options. The Nissan Micra Active variants include XL and XV trims. Boasting new features, the Nissan Micra Active price in India gets a slight change.

Nissan Micra Active Style

It has a trendy appearance and stands out with numerous other elements, which define its overall appeal. All the variants of this series are offered with bumpers in body color at the front as well to its rear too.

Nissan Micra Active Performance

The Active model is launched only with Petrol engine, with four variants being offered. The 1.2-litre, 1198cc, Dual Over Head Cam Shaft (DOHC) based engine has the capacity to generate about 66.64bhp of maximum power at 5000rpm and 104Nm of peak torque output at 4000rpm and is mated with a smooth and efficient 5-speed manual gear box transmission.

This is one of the most significant aspect in any vehicle. Its front wheels are fitted with ventilated disc brakes, whereas the rear wheels are fixed with a set of standard drum brakes.

Other features like passenger airbag, ABS with EBD & brake assist and driver seat belt warning indicator are available only on the top-spec variant. Centre door locking, speed sensing auto door locking, speed sensing auto door lock etc.

Nissan Micra Active Conclusion

Nissan’s Micra Active has superior all-round visibility that is slightly marred by the thick C-pillar. It has bulbous outcrops flanking the bonnet and this makes it a rarity among modern cars where the bonnet is almost never visible and this makes parking in tight spots extremely easy. Micra Active lives up to its tagline ‘drive easy, live better’.

Active’s front seats are quite comfortable but the same can’t be said about the rear bench. Though legroom is adequate, the seats severely lack thigh support, and that makes it the car with the least comfortable rear bench and not the best one to be chauffeur-driven in. Surprisingly, its competitor
