Necessary Maintenance After Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, sometimes called “nose job” here in Montreal, is the safest and least invasive of cosmetic surgeries, but it is still a surgery. Like all surgeries, it will cause a fair amount of swelling, inflammation, and some pain. It will also tax your body as the incision develops into a scar. How fast you heal, and how visible an open rhinoplasty scar becomes, is in large part up to you. Follow these tips to recovery quickly and fully. Drink Lots of Water Your body will try to flush out inflammatory particles and debris from the incision. The more water you have, the faster this will happen, allowing your body to get on with the process of healing. Eat Lots of Protein Eat at least 70 grams of protein a day. For reference, that’s 6-7 egg whites, 9 cups of milk, or 2 large chicken breasts. If you have a lot…

Is Breast Lift Necessary For Achieving The Best Augmentation Results?

For most patients, breast lifts are probably not necessary in order to get the most out of breast augmentation. Here in Montreal, I try to avoid breast lifts if they are not necessary, as they further remove natural volume in order to bring the breasts up. However, there are times when a patient might choose to bundle both procedures together. Augmentation and Drooping Implants will lessen the appearance of drooping. Drooping breasts are usually caused by a low volume of lower tissue, including lower fat layers and mammary glands, and a high amount of upper tissue, including skin and upper layers of fat. The condition of our skin, especially the strength of collagen bonds, also plays a big part. It’s a lot like a balloon: a larger balloon (upper fat and skin) needs more air to look full. An implant is inserted in the lower part of the breast, under…

How to Choose Between a Body Lift and Tummy Tuck

Choosing between getting a body lift and a tummy tuck is a decision Montreal patients should make in consultation with a plastic surgeon. The answer will depend on your cosmetic needs, medical history, and your budget. That said, if you want a rough guide to when most surgeons will recommend each, here are the situations for which each procedure is used: Tummy Tuck Tummy tucks are the best way to contour the stomach after weight loss. In addition to removing excess skin and fat, they tighten the muscle wall, making abs permanently tighter. A tummy tuck is most useful when weight loss is concentrated in the stomach. Concentrated weight loss tends to leave much looser skin than general weight loss. A common cliché among surgeons is that 100 lbs of weight loss over the whole body leaves less looseness than 50 lbs of weight loss in the stomach area. A tummy…

How Does Breast Reduction Affect Your Breastfeeding Ability?

Among all breast cosmetic enhancements, reductions are most likely to reduce a patient’s lactation ability. However, reduction generally does not make breastfeeding more painful, and only very rarely prevent lactation entirely. The vast majority of women who undergo reductions are still able to breastfeed, although they may need to take action to make up for low lactation. Breast Surgery and Breastfeeding All enhancements run some risk of limiting lactation. Any incisions in breast tissue can cause swelling that damages milk-producing cells. It is only breast reductions, though that can lower lactation by design. Unlike breast lifts, which work through a removal of skin and fat from the upper layers, breast reductions target the underlying tissue. In many women, this will involve removal of milk-producing cells below the nipple. Preventing Lowered Lactation Although reduction surgery will always carry risks, you can reduce them by following your surgeon’s recommendations. Take all precautions…

How A Labiaplasty Can Affect Your Sex Life

Many people assume that removing labial tissue will reduce sexual sensitivity. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Labiaplasty does not remove any nerves, concentrating more sensitivity in a smaller area. Even better, it reforms the labia in a way that improves sexual satisfaction. Labiaplasty and Pleasure Labiaplasty will reduce the size of labia and the clitoral hood, making the clitoris more exposed during sex. The clitoris will require less arousal to become prominent, making foreplay much more, well, to the point. Proper exposure of the clitoris is the main reason to choose a qualified first-world surgeon for a labiaplasty. Using proper technique, a surgeon will avoid leaving any scar tissue around the clitoris, allowing for maximum pleasure. Labiaplasty and Pain Labiaplasty can also reduce or eliminate pain before and during intercourse. A common problem for labiaplasty patients is soreness while riding bikes, horses, or even just while wearing…
