Will Botox Help To Improve Your Skin’s Health?

Botox injections are designed to paralyze your facial muscles so that the face attains a more youthful appearance. The latest research suggests that Botox can actually improve the skin’s health by reversing the ageing effects. Botox treatment helps the skin to become more flexible. Apparently, the primary manner in which Botox helps the skin is by stimulating the production of the proteins elastin and collagen, which helps promote healthy looking skin. Botox treatment would be particularly helpful for older individuals, as ageing decreases the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. Researchers do not fully understand the relationship between Botox treatment, its paralysing effect on the facial muscles, and the resulting increase in elasticity. However, they could not find any link between Botox treatment and swelling or muscle contraction. It is possible that collagen and elastin somehow respond to Botox treatment. Botox may also contain antioxidants that affect the…

Will A Tummy Tuck Affect Menstruation?

Men and women (in particular) tend to have a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty with me in Montreal to get rid of extra belly fat after traditional methods like dieting and exercise have failed. Like other surgical procedures, there is a fairly lengthy recovery process, and the patient will experience some level of discomfort. However, most surgeons agree that an abdominoplasty doesn’t directly have an impact on a woman’s menstrual cycle. However, the stress of a surgical period can have an impact. If a woman misses her periods after surgery, it may be because of the stress that the procedure may have caused. Stress and Menstrual Cycle When a woman’s stress level goes on the rise, it could affect her reproductive system by causing an irregular schedule of periods, or perhaps missing the periods altogether. When the menstrual period is temporarily halted, this condition is known as amenorrhea. Exactly how does…

10 DIY Tips to Reduce Scars After Surgery

As a Montreal plastic surgeon, I know that surgery is not the easiest medical procedure to undergo, and there is often a recovery period as well as possible after effects to deal with. One of those after effects is scarring. Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent, minimize, or fade scarring so nobody has to know you went under the knife by looking at your skin. 1. Clean the Wounds While They Are Still Fresh It is advisable to clean fresh surgical wounds regularly so as to prevent bacterial infection. For small wounds, simply placing them under clean and cool running water is the best way to heal. You should actually avoid substances such as alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, and iodine, as these may actually delay the healing process. 2. Ensure That Your Wound Remains Covered and Moist Wounds should be concealed and kept moist, as this speeds up…

How Long Do Plastic Surgery Results Last?

The cosmetic industry has picked up over the last few years. People no longer accept the effects of aging and other natural life occurrences on the body as an inevitable fact of life. Plastic surgery in Montreal offers hope to achieve something that many of us want badly –  eternal youth. But is that hope justified? We see celebrities who seem to never age, and many of them have gone under the knife. But does plastic surgery last forever? The reality is, many of these celebrities have had repeat procedures in order to maintain their good looks, because contrary to what you may want to believe, plastic surgery’s effects do not necessarily last a lifetime. It is worth looking at some of those procedures: Breast Enhancement Breast enhancement is ideal for women who have completed breastfeeding. The average breast implant today lasts from 12-15 years. After that period, the implant…

7 Benefits Of An Arm Lift

Many people tend to have excess skin and fat around their arms, which gives them a droopy, flabby look. This look often makes them self conscious, particularly when engaging in regular daily activities such as waiving to a friend, writing on or pointing to a blackboard, or simply interacting with children. Flabby arms can happen for various reasons. The most common ones are sudden weight loss, childbirth, and ageing. Regardless of the cause, loose, sagging skin can make people very self conscious and lose confidence in themselves. If you are willing to accept yourself and carry on as you always have, that is commendable. But if you are looking to do something about it, then an arm lift could be the solution. Arm Lift vs. Liposuction People mistakenly believe that liposuction will help make the skin firmer. In fact, liposuction does the exact opposite: it relaxes the skin and makes…
