What is a breast augmentation?

A breast augmentation (insertion of implants) is often performed to replace volume lost from weight loss, breast-feeding, or age or to increase the size of the breast for aesthetic reasons.  It is most appropriate for patients with breasts that don’t sag (normal ptosis). In patients with breasts that sag, the need for a lift is determined by your current nipple position and the quality of your tissue. Continue reading…

Oh, moms, are you happy with your physical body? Do you have countless hours to spend in the gym? Is a personal chef creating a nutrition plan to keep you in tip-top shape as you run around after your little ones, taking them to soccer practice, dance, and Kung Fu?

Chances are, this is not your reality. Let me paint a more realistic picture of you. If you’re like the average mom, you are running the kiddos around and maintaining a house, social schedule, and your own career, perhaps. You vacillate between protein bars, leftover peanut butter sandwiches and Cheez-Its for your noon lunch, as you have no time for anything else, and you have a few pounds to lose. Coffee is your fuel, chocolate is your secret gluttonous snack as you prioritize everyone else first. Does this sound familiar?

Moms, it’s time to get down to the business of taking care of yourselves. Who said that being a mom meant you had to be okay with ten extra pounds and a soft belly? Do you wish you still had the body you had in college?

You can get it back! How about scheduling an abdominoplasty?

Sleep apnea not only disrupts your sleep patterns, but it can also increase your risk for a number of serious health issues. If you have tried all of the non-surgical fixes to no avail, consider rhinoplasty. Although it is a surgical procedure and presents its own risks, functional rhinoplasty can help control episodes of sleep apnea.

More women are embracing breast augmentation every year. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been an astonishing 89 percent increase in the number of breast lifts doctors perform annually since 2000. In 2015 alone, 279,143 breast augmentation surgeries were performed in the U.S.

When we talk about breast augmentation, however, it’s important to note that there are different types of procedures. Getting a breast lift is not the same thing as getting breast implants. It is possible to do either or both. Which one is right for you? That depends on your personal preferences and your breast type.

Tubular Breast
Many women tend to be self-conscious about having tuberous breasts; however, an experienced surgeon can perform a dual plane breast augmentation with a periareolar lift to correct this condition.

Tuberous breasts is a condition where the breasts form into a tube-like shape because of constriction at the base of the breasts during development. The breasts also tend to develop farther apart and unevenly than a normal chest. The breasts are often characterized by enlarged areolas and sagging. Although this condition may prevent a woman from breast-feeding, it doesn’t lead to any other pregnancy or fertility related issues. Continue reading…

Botox is an injectable used to target wrinkles created by the contraction of facial muscle groups of the upper face. Botox is a neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botox works by preventing the release of a chemical messenger, acetylcholine, at the junction between the nerves and muscles. Botox prevents the release of acetylcholine, preventing contraction of the muscle cells. By preventing the release of acetylcholine, Botox lessens the movement of specific muscles of the face that cause wrinkles. Continue reading…
