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.
BOTOX is a hugely popular cosmetic treatment for forehead lines, crow’s feet, lipstick lines and lines between the eyebrows.
Because BOTOX is so effective, and because repeat treatments are necessary to maintain the results, one of the most commonly asked questions regarding BOTOX is how often patients can receive treatment.
Designer Betsey Johnson is helping fashion spring forward with her 2012 collection, which she said was inspired by her breast implants, and by her daughter, who also has breast implants. Unlike many designers, who sometimes talk about wanting models to be like "clothes hangers" that don't interfere with their designs, Johnson embraced women's curves in her collection, both the natural ones and the augmented ones.
The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face is part of the natural aging process. But dermal fillers like Restylane can smooth and soften these features, and leave you with a youthful, healthy look.
The board-certified Panama City, Florida, plastic surgeons at the Feagin-Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center are pleased to include Restylane among our skin care treatment options. Restylane may be used in the treatment of:
Some young women are concerned that breast implants may impact their ability to have a healthy baby. This idea has been promoted by breast implant critics who say either that breast implants will make it harder for you to get pregnant or may increase your child's risk of birth defects. Concerns about this potential side effect were part of the reason why breast implants were temporarily withdrawn from the market in 1996 until 2006.
