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.
CoolSculpting™ is a relatively new procedure that can help men and women get rid of stubborn areas of fat. Approved by the FDA in 2010, more than 2 million patients have since received CoolSculpting™. This innovative, non-invasive procedure uses extreme cold to target fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
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.
More patients are traveling out of the country every year seeking plastic surgery. The primary reason for traveling abroad is lower cost, but other reasons can include lack of knowledge of the risks involved in surgery and returning to one's homeland. No matter what the reason, it is a growing concern for plastic surgeons with an estimated 750,000 US residents expected to travel abroad for medical treatment in 2014.
Plastic surgery continues to increase in popularity. Some of the most common procedures performed include breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction and nose surgery. With any surgical procedure, there will be some postoperative discomfort. The way a patient experiences their surgery depends on many factors:
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released a report revealing statistics on both invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery procedures performed in 2013. Although surgical procedures like breast augmentation, facelift, and rhinoplasty remain the most commonly sought after services, the popularity of non-invasive procedures saw dramatic increase. Over 13 million non-invasive procedures were performed in 2013.
More women are seeking ways to improve the shape and contour of their arms. If there is sagging skin and excess tissue on your upper arms, then a brachioplasty (arm lift) procedure may benefit you.
Arm lifts, also known as brachioplasty, remove excess skin and fat from your upper arms to give them a slimmer contour and shape. Patients interested in brachioplasty often have a history of significant weight loss.
Most couples today have busy schedules. Between working long hours and attending to family obligations, where can couples find time to share these days?
Adults aren't the only people undergoing plastic surgery these days. As it turns out, the number of teenagers desiring plastic surgery has steadily increased, too.
