Advantages and Benefits of a Traditional Face Lift

With the increasing popularity of nonsurgical facelifts like those offered by PDO threads, a traditional surgical facelift might seem less appealing. However, there are some major advantages to getting a traditional facelift that just aren’t there with nonsurgical treatments.

Tighten Facial Muscles

Although nonsurgical facelifts will tighten your skin and make you look younger, they don’t do anything for the underlying tissues. As you get older, the muscle structure of your face can also get weaker or loose. During a surgical facelift, the plastic surgeon will tighten the underlying muscles and tissues as well, which can also help your facelift results last longer.

Three Procedures to Combat Stubborn Fat

Have you worked hard to improve your health, lose weight, and get in shape, but you just can’t seem to get the results you want? Unfortunately, it is often that a patient is not able to rid themselves of stubborn fat no matter what they try. Certain areas of the body are more prone to stubborn fat and excess skin, including the tummy or lower abdomen, upper thighs, and upper arms. Luckily, there are some cosmetic surgical procedures that you can get to combat stubborn fat.

Tummy Tuck

The lower abdomen or tummy is one of the places that can be the hardest to slim down. Especially if you have been overweight for some time, are nearing middle age, or going through natural hormonal changes, tummy fat can be impossible to melt away with diet and exercise alone. Part of the problem may be that it is not stubborn fat at all, but rather excess skin tissue. Sometimes, when you lose a lot of weight, the skin is not elastic enough to bounce back, and the only way to remove it is with a tummy tuck.

Why Exercise Is Important Before and After Plastic Surgery

Most people know that they are supposed to get at least some exercise or physical activity every day. Doctors recommend that everyone does at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise at least 3 times per week. While it is important for all adults to get exercise as a normal rule, there are some things you will need to consider when you are planning to have plastic surgery.

Before Surgery

Before your surgery you should maintain your exercise routine right up until the day before your procedure. You will want to talk to your surgeon before your procedure about resuming your activity level and exercise routine. They will be able to tell you how long to wait before getting back to exercising. They may also advise you to ease back into your workout routine as your healing progresses.

Why You Should Plan Early for Your Plastic Surgery Procedure

As a society, we have a tendency to want the things we want right now. We have gotten so used to having everything at our fingertips that we don’t like to wait. Once you make a decision, you want to act on it immediately. However, you should not rush into plastic surgery.

Research Plastic Surgeons

Why and How You Should Train Yourself To Sleep On Your Back Before Breast Surgery

Regardless of what type of breast surgery you are having, it will be important to sleep on your back during recovery. Whether you are getting a breast augmentation, breast reduction, or breast implant revision, the tissues of your breast will not be able to heal properly if you sleep on your side or tummy. Fluid can build up, swelling and inflammation can increase, and bleeding can occur. 

Most people do not naturally sleep on their back. If you are one of the many side or tummy sleepers, you are probably going to have a very hard time making the adjustment to sleeping on your back. It will take time and practice to make it happen, so you should start making the change as soon as you have solid plans for breast surgery.

Tips for Faster Plastic Surgery Recovery

Regardless of what type of cosmetic surgery you are having, there are some things that you can do at home to speed up your recovery. It is important to follow all of your doctor’s recovery and post-op instructions, including taking any prescribed medications. Here are some other things you can do to recover from plastic surgery faster.

Avoid Sun Damage

Exposure to the sun’s damaging rays can slow down the progress of your recovery. This is especially true if you have had rhinoplasty or a face lift.

What You Need to Know about Strattice for Capsular Contracture

Just like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation comes with some risks. One of those risks is capsular contracture. Although this condition affects about one in six women who get breast implants, it is a very treatable condition. In some patients it can even be avoided. Here’s what you need to know about capsular contraction and how Strattice is used in its treatment.

What Is Capsular Contracture?

Whenever an implant is placed in the body, whether it is for medical or cosmetic reasons, the body naturally surrounds it with scar tissue. This capsule of scar tissue is the body’s way of isolating a foreign object that it feels should not be there. Most people get this capsule of scar tissue around their breast implants.

When Is the Right Time for a Tummy Tuck?

Once you have decided that you need or want this procedure, it is important to make sure that you choose the appropriate timing to have it done. Here’s what you need to know to choose the right time for a tummy tuck.

After Diet and Exercise

It is important that you wait to get a tummy tuck until you have achieved a healthy weight and tried to tone your abdomen using diet and exercise. Although a tummy tuck is a great procedure for ridding yourself of excess skin and unwanted fat, it is not a replacement for diet and exercise in toning your body and losing weight.

Four Procedures That Make Up the Mommy Makeover

Mothers make many sacrifices over the years, starting with the moment that they become pregnant. While most mothers are happy to make these sacrifices, it is nice when a mother is able to do something for herself to reverse the damage of the sacrifice of giving birth. 

There are many different procedures that can be included in a Mommy Makeover. The following four procedures are the most common ones included. You can discuss your personal goals and determine which procedures should be part of your rejuvenation strategy when you have your consultation.

Liposuction

All women gain some extra fat and tissue around their abdomen, thighs, and buttocks during pregnancy.

Sometimes fat is simply resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can reduce the fat in these areas.

Tummy Tuck Vs. Liposuction: Varying Results and Benefits

If you have excess skin, fat, or both on your abdomen, you might be trying to consider your options. While a tummy tuck or liposuction are not effective for managing your weight, if you are at a normal weight and have stubborn areas that are unaffected by diet and exercise, a tummy tuck or liposuction might be right for you. Here are the differences between these two procedures.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the abdomen. As excess skin and fat are removed, old scar tissue and stretch marks can be removed. A tummy tuck has a long recovery time of several weeks or months before you really enjoy the benefits of the procedure, and you may have a brief hospital stay.

A breast lift is also a simpler procedure that has less downtime and more successful results.

Three Reasons Men Want Pec Implants

Pec or chest implants, as well as other procedures, are becoming much more commonplace among men. In fact, men are using cosmetic procedures to enhance their appearance more frequently than ever before. One of the common procedures that men want is pec implants to make them appear more muscular and defined. Here are three reasons men opt for this procedure.

Reconstructive Surgery

About 35 percent of male cosmetic patients choose pec implants for this reason.

Three Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

If you feel that your breasts are too large, or if you are having significant back or shoulder pain due to large breasts, you might want to consider breast reduction surgery. There are many benefits to having breast reduction surgery, some of which you may not have previously considered.

Decreased Pain

Large breasts, especially when on a smaller body frame, can cause significant back and shoulder pain. Depending on the type of bra that you wear, shoulder and back pain can be increased or decreased.

When done for these medical reasons, the procedure can even sometimes be covered by health insurance.

Three Reasons Your Surgeon Should Perform a Breast Lift

Having breast augmentation is a big decision, and you want to make sure that the entire process goes smoothly and gives you the results you want. One of the most important ways to make sure that this happens is to combine a breast lift with your breast augmentation procedure. We always do a breast lift with augmentation for several reasons. If your surgeon has not recommended a breast lift with augmentation, consider these three reasons to use a different surgeon.

Smaller Implants

When you get a breast lift with augmentation, you can usually get smaller implants for the same or better results. A breast lift moves the nipple and areola to a more prominent position, removes excess tissue and skin, and lifts the breast to make it perkier. All of this improves the overall shape of the breast, which may make smaller implants feasible.

Top Three Choices for the Mommy Makeover

When you are done having children, one of your first priorities is to get your pre-pregnancy body back. Many women use diet and exercise to try to lose that pregnancy weight and get back in shape, yet these methods are not always completely successful. A mommy makeover is a great way to get your body back to the shape you prefer. The process may include a number of different procedures depending on your personal needs. There are three main choices for a mommy makeover that are the most common.

Breast Lift with Optional Augmentation

Especially if you chose to breastfeed your baby, you may be experiencing some significant sagging of the breasts. This is completely normal after breastfeeding because the breasts go through so many changes in size during that time, and the skin and tissues become stretched. Some women also lose breast volume when they breastfeed. Most women choose to have a breast lift with their mommy makeover, with some also choosing to have augmentation.

Eyelid Lift and Brow Lift for a More Youthful Look

Your eyes tell people a lot about you, even though some of it might not be true. Your eyes can make you appear ill or tired. They can make you appear as though you are not following the conversation or make people think that you don’t get enough sleep. Whether the problem is bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids and brows, or a combination, an eyelid and brow lift can make you appear healthier and younger almost instantaneously.

Open Up the Eyes

With an eyelid lift combined with a brow lift, your eyes will look much more open and alert. As we age, the skin around our eyes and brows begins to lose elasticity. Changes in weight or even just long hours at work can make the skin around your eyes begin to sag. With an eyelid and brow lift, the excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. These procedures can completely transform your look, making you appear healthier and more alert.

Butt and Thigh Lift for a Total Transformation

Aging and weight changes can bring about the effects of something no one on earth can avoid—gravity. Over time, it is natural for the buttocks to sag a bit. It is also normal, especially during weight fluctuations, to get excess skin and fat on the thighs that detracts from the appearance of your jeans and skirts. A butt lift combined with a thigh lift is the best way to totally transform how you look in your favorite clothes.

What is a Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a complex procedure that combines liposuction with augmentation. Excess fat is removed through liposuction from the buttocks, hips, and upper thighs. Injections are then performed to give some shape and firmness to the butt. The entire procedure takes about an afternoon and is done on an outpatient basis. Recovery time is minimal.

Top Considerations Before Breast Augmentation

You may think that once you have decided to get breast augmentation that your decisions are over, but there are a lot of things to consider before going through with the procedure. Getting information about these choices before your consultation can be helpful, but your doctor will be the one to help you make these decisions based on the results you want and your unique condition and situation.

Type and Shape of Implants

There are two main types of implants used in breast augmentation, primarily saline and silicone. Of these two types, there are many manufacturers, brands, shapes, and sizes. Not all manufacturers work within the same sizing structure, so it is beneficial to work with a cosmetic surgeon that works with many different types of implants to get the best fit for your goals. There are tear drop shapes, round implants, and other shapes and sizes.

Signs Your Breast Implants Need to Be Replaced

When you first got your breast augmentation, you were likely warned that implants don’t last forever. Eventually, they need to be replaced. Most women have their implants replaced every eight to ten years. Some women have been known to go 20 years between surgeries. Even though the amount of time your implants last may vary, there are some critical signs you need to get your breast implants replaced.

Hardening

Benefits of Pairing a Breast Lift with a Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can be an important, life changing procedure. Many women having a breast reduction are doing so to prevent chronic back and shoulder pain. Although having smaller breasts is the ultimate goal, you also want your breasts to look natural and perky. Pairing your breast reduction procedure with a breast lift will help ensure your new look is attractive as well as beneficial.

Sagging Breasts

Most women who have large breasts have some sagging. While the breast reduction will remove weight, tissue, and even skin to make your breasts smaller, some sagging could still be evident without adding a breast lift to the procedure. The breast lift will give you perkier, firmer breasts.

The Best Dermal Filler to Use with a Face Lift

The effects of aging can sometimes be cruel, and many women make the decision to get a face lift to bring back some of their youthful look. While a face lift can certainly tighten your skin and make you look younger, it does have its limitations. There are some excellent ways that dermal fillers can be used with a face lift to turn back the hands of time even more.

Why Use a Dermal Filler with a Face Lift?

There are some areas of the face that tend to lose volume as you age. While a face lift will raise and tighten your skin, it cannot replace this volume loss. Volume loss in the cheeks and around the mouth can result in more pronounced wrinkles before a face lift, and a hollow look after a face lift. Using dermal fillers in conjunction with a face lift addresses all of the issues that make you look older.

Breast Reduction: A Solution for Back Pain

Many women experience back, neck, and shoulder pain due to large breasts. You may have developed back problems early in life if you developed large breasts before your spine and shoulders were able to efficiently bear the weight. Some women find that they get much larger breasts after bearing children and they do not reduce on their own. Whatever the reason for your back pain, one of the best solutions is to get a breast reduction.

What is a Breast Reduction?

In breast reduction surgery,  breast tissue, fat, and skin is removed to make the breast smaller. This is often combined with breast lift surgery, which can be done at the same time. Often, larger breasts are more prone to sagging, and in reducing the size the breast does not appear perky. Breast lift surgery will tighten the breast and raise it higher on the chest. The nipple can also be moved to be more centered.

Breast Reduction: A Solution for Back Pain

Having very large breasts does more than make it hard to find clothing that fits properly. Large breasts are often the culprit of back, neck, and shoulder pain. If you are suffering from back pain due to large breasts, a breast reduction may be your best option to relieve pain.

Reasons for a Breast Reduction

Some women who have back pain from large breasts developed their breasts at a young age when they were still growing. The spine and muscle tissues can often fail to keep up with breast growth in these cases, causing extreme back pain at a young age. This can hinder your ability to perform in physical activity or daily tasks.

Other women have problems with back pain because their breasts grew as an adult, either due to pregnancy or weight gain. Often, breast size related to pregnancy decreases on its own, but sometimes this is not the case. Losing weight can also reduce breast size, but not always enough to make a difference in back pain.

Should Breast Reduction Be a First or Last Resort?

Breast reduction should not be your first resort to getting smaller breasts in some cases. If you are overweight, you should try to lose weight on your own before resorting to a breast reduction. If you get a breast reduction and then lose a significant amount of weight, your breasts could end in a size or shape that you do not find appealing.

If you are not overweight and you have large breasts that are causing you pain, over the counter medications and physical therapy can help relieve pain and build up muscles to help support the weight of your breasts. However, when these methods fail, breast reduction may be your only option to get some relief.

If you are suffering from back pain due to overly large breasts and you have tried other methods to cope, a breast reduction could be the answer you are looking for. Contact us today for a consultation.

The 3 Most Common Body Changes from Pregnancy

Becoming a mother is a wonderful thing, but there is no doubt that it wreaks havoc on your body. There are a lot of changes that will occur during and after your pregnancy. Some changes you just have to live with, but many of the changes your body goes through during and after childbirth can be rectified.

Breast Changes

Your breasts go through massive changes during and after pregnancy. As your pregnancy progresses, and immediately following the birth, your breasts can get significantly larger. Some women report gaining more than two cup sizes during and just after pregnancy. If you are not breastfeeding, your breasts after birth will begin to get smaller, but the skin and tissues will be stretched. This can cause significant sagging. A breast lift can really help bring your breasts back to the tight fullness that you once enjoyed before pregnancy.

Stomach Changes

Nearly every new mother has some stretch marks to show for her trials through pregnancy. While some stretch marks can be treated to be less visible, often these badges of honor are nothing to worry much about. The size of your stomach is another story. Unless you stayed very active during your pregnancy, you’re going to have some added flab to your midsection after birth. This can be very difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise, but a simple liposuction procedure can help bring you back to your pre-pregnancy size.

Vaginal Laxity

Childbirth stretches the tissues of the vagina and causes vaginal laxity, or a loosening of the vaginal tissues. Not only does vaginal laxity affect your sex life, it can also cause additional embarrassing problems. Stress incontinence, or urinating when you laugh or sneeze, can be quite common after giving birth. The more children you have had, the more likely you will have this problem. A vaginal rejuvenation with Geneveve is one option to get your life back to normal.

If you have recently given birth and want your pre-pregnancy body back to normal, we can help. Contact us today for a consultation.

3 Breast Implant Myths That Need to Be Busted

It’s often easier to find misleading and falsified information than it is to find the truth. This is especially true when it comes to plastic surgery. If you are one of the many women interested in undergoing a breast augmentation but confused about the reality of the procedure, the following myth busters will help you set the record straight.

Myth 1: All Implants Look Fake

False! The truth is that you can customize your breast implants to look any way you want.

You will work with your plastic surgeon to make the best choice for your body.

The quality of breast implants is highly influenced by the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Surgeons aren’t just doctors, but artists as well.

Are Your Hormones Out of Sync? Try Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Unfortunately, hormone production in the body decreases between 3 percent to 10 percent each year after the age of 30. This loss in hormones inevitably leads to a variety of unpleasant symptoms like irritability, loss of libido, weight gain, and more. Read More
