2021-02-26T21:46:44+00:00February 26, 2021|

Throughout pregnancy a woman’s abdomen transforms through the stretching of muscles and skin as the baby grows. Breasts enlarge and then get even bigger with breast feeding. Unfortunately, this stretching can create havoc on a woman’s ability to regain her taut, pre-baby body shape no matter how much exercise and dieting she does. The combination of cosmetic procedures performed in a “mommy makeover” typically includes procedures to restore the appearance of the breasts and tummy. These are the areas of the body that tend to suffer the most after pregnancy; hence, the term “mommy makeover”. Your plastic surgeon’s goal will [...]

After a cosmetic consultation, your plastic surgeon may recommend a combination of both surgical and nonsurgical options to restore your youthful appearance. The most noticeable signs of aging of the neck begin in the 40s or 50s [...]

2020-09-02T19:40:46+00:00September 2, 2020|

Fat transfers are changing the face of plastic surgery. While plastic surgeons have long been extracting fat from the stomach or thighs to inject into breasts and buttocks, the latest trend is to use similar techniques to add a youthful fullness to the face. Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, helps to revitalize and rejuvenate skin quality while adding fullness to the injection site. Surgeons remove a patient’s own fat from a donor location and inject it into a spot that could benefit from some volume. Increasingly, fat transfers are accompanying facelift procedures to increase volume in such areas [...]

When should you replace your breast implants?

2020-05-13T20:32:50+00:00May 13, 2020|

How often should breast implants be replaced? The answer varies since the longevity of an implant is dependent on many different things, including the implant type, the patient’s body, and even the surgeon. There are two basic types of implants: Saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater. They're inserted empty, and then filled once they're in place. Silicone implants are prefilled with silicone gel. While both saline and silicone breast implants are designed to last safely for many years, they are not considered lifetime devices, and both will likely need to be redone at some point. The [...]
