What’s the healthiest way to start your day? Eggs? Oatmeal? Orange juice? How about a glass of lemon water? People have been cultivating lemons since the 8th century, but it’s not until recently that they became aware of just how healthy they are. Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, citrate, and flavonoids – three substances that promote health and well-being. Drinking a glass of lemon water every morning is a great way to boost your immune system, prevent kidney stones, and keep you safe from heart disease.

In a previous post, we discussed natural phenomena that cause aging in the face. Not only do the soft tissues in the face droop, but they also deflate. Both bone and soft tissue erode leading to an old-looking face. At Finesse Plastic Surgery, we advocate fat redistribution and augmentation to correct aging in the face.
Did you know that as you age, your face not only droops, but also deflates? Many plastic surgeons recommend repositioning fat for rejuvenation of an aging face. However, it is possible that volume replacement may also be necessary to achieve the best possible results.
Your breasts may not appear exactly as you imagined right after breast augmentation. It takes several months for your breasts to fully heal following surgery. You may notice that your new breasts appear to rest too high on your chest. However, as they heal, your breasts will settle or ‘drop’ into place. You may wonder, how long does it take for breast implants to drop?
A Mommy Makeover is not one procedure, but several procedures performed in one setting. After giving birth, many patients desire an appearance that more closely resembles their pre-pregnancy selves. This can often be achieved through a Mommy Makeover.
It is always best to be at your ideal weight, a weight that you can also maintain, before undergoing any type of body contouring surgery. This includes Mommy Makeover. If you undergo a procedure to remove excess skin, losing more weight afterwards will result in more excess skin. This may require an additional procedure to achieve your desired appearance.
Any invasive surgical procedure will result in a scar. The way a scar appears can vary and is based on many different factors. These include how an individual heals, their skin type, area of the body affected and the amount of tension on the scar. As plastic surgeons, we try to optimize a scar's appearance through meticulous techniques that avoid causing trauma to your tissue during surgery. However, despite our best efforts,there is no technique that allows us to perform surgery without leaving visible scars.
Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. Approximately 300,000 women undergo breast augmentation surgery each year. Women choose to have the surgery for a variety of reasons, but a common theme for most is the desire to fit better into clothes.
Traditionally, patients who were seeking breast augmentation could only have surgery with round implants. This has changed in recent years. Some of the major breast implant companies, such as Allergan, Mentor and Sientra, now offer anatomic shaped silicone implants.
These are sometimes called “gummy bear” or “tear drop” implants. Now that there is a new choice in breast implants, you may be wondering, are shaped implants or round implants right for you?
