Knowing and understanding the cost of an important purchase like a breast augmentation is common sense to anyone who has ever spent money on something that they really desired, whether it be a car, home or computer. This is of course no different with breast augmentation, and is one of the more common questions that we are asked here in the office. Whenever someone begins considering a surgery the question of whether or not it is affordable is usually right near the top of the list.
Thinking about Breast Augmentation? Frustrated with shopping for bathing suits? Wish fun clothes came in your size? Tired of buying clothes that just fit your body but not your bust? Wonder if there is a breast exercise that could be as effective as those you have done for the rest of your body?
Breast enlargement with your newest generation implants can help with all the above concerns. Saline, round gel, and anatomic (tear drop) gel implants are all available in our practice to better achieve the look and feel you desire.
Ultrasonic liposuction is a specific liposuction technique that uses ultrasonic waves to dissolve fat cells, making them easier to remove. Ultrasound is too high-pitched for the human ear to hear; the high amount of energy carried by these sound waves is what breaks down your fat cells.
Being prepared for tummy tuck surgery will not only help you achieve the best results possible – it will also help ensure a smooth recovery, decreasing the already low risk of complications. Before surgery, there are a few different factors you should consider:
Pregnancy can be rough on your body. After your child is born, you may do your best to return to exercise and a normal diet, only to find it impossible to restore the attractive figure you once had. Even if you manage to lose the weight you gained, you may find that you are now left with loose, sagging skin in your stomach area and breasts. Diet and exercise cannot fix these things – but a mommy makeover can.
If you want to ensure the best results from your breast augmentation, it is important to take care of your breasts both before and after surgery to keep them in good health. Many things that damage your general health can also negatively affect your breasts. Exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet will go a long way toward keeping your breasts healthy.
Many women who are interested in breast augmentation are understandably concerned about how painful the experience will be. Breast augmentation is performed under anesthesia to control your comfort level during the procedure. Afterwards, some amount of discomfort is inevitable, but most of our patients report that the pain they experience is minor and far less of a problem than they expected.
Having a breast augmentation is a very personal decision. Because of this – and because plastic surgery tends to be a bit controversial – it can be a touchy subject to discuss with family and friends. Of course, it is completely up to you whether or not you want to share your decision with family and friends before surgery, but one way or another, the conversation may come up after your breast implants are placed.
As you age, the outer layer of your skin tends to withstand a lot of damage. Constant sun exposure, a smoking habit, and other environmental factors can make your skin look dull and thin, contributing to fine wrinkles all over your face, lesions, and pigment irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure designed to stimulate and rejuvenate your skin, helping restore a more youthful appearance and protecting against future skin cancers.
If you are frustrated by visible signs of facial aging, injectables and dermal fillers can be a valuable treatment option. These non-surgical procedures are relatively inexpensive and can provide satisfying results, even if the effects are temporary. However, each injectable has different advantages and targets different problems. The right injectable for you will depend on the specific cosmetic issue you are dealing with.
