Can I Get Pregnant After a Mommy Makeover Procedure?

Getting a mommy makeover will not affect your ability to carry your baby safely to term. Depending on how much weight is gained during the pregnancy, some of the positive effects of the makeover will be reversed, but it’s possible to correct those issues a second time. Make sure your body has healed Many doctors would recommend that you wait for 4-6 months after the procedure before trying to conceive another baby, and this is to make sure that everything has healed up. Once the place of incision has soundly closed, your body will be able to expand properly to accommodate the growth of the baby and any additional baby weight that you might accumulate during pregnancy.

Will I Need To Get Botox After My Facelift?

Botox and facelifts rejuvenate different areas of the face, and the effects of Botox are short-term whereas facelifts are long-term. It’s really a matter of personal preference–you may find the facelift is best on its own and that non-surgical rejuvenation is unnecessary, but you do always have the option to supplement your facelift with Botox for a full-face treatment. How do Facelifts Help? Facelifts can be any combination of excess skin removal, tightening of the underlying muscle, and repositioning of the skin. This procedure is particular effective on people with excess skin that’s lost some of its elasticity. Issues that are best corrected by facelifts include: under eye wrinkles that have formed deep lines in the face deep forehead creases that are visible even when there’s no expression on the face drooping eyebrows that form pouches overhanging the eyes sagging cheeks visible folds between the nose and cheeks All these…

Can Breast Reconstruction Be Done After a Mastectomy?

Yes, breast reconstruction is possible after a mastectomy, and there are a variety of methods which address the different conditions that a breast may be in after it has been treated for breast cancer. Reconstruction after mastectomy is a path that many women have gone through before, so your surgeon will be going in with lots of knowledge to help restore the breast to its former condition. The timing of the mastectomy and reconstruction Immediate reconstruction combines the mastectomy and reconstruction into one lengthened procedure. Not all cases are suited to this choice, such as when the breast tumor is very large.

Adjuvant therapy includes: chemotherapy hormonal therapy radiation therapy trastuzumab It’s possible to have the reconstruction either before or after the adjuvant therapy, but if you’re going to wait…

What Does Juvederm Do?

Juvederm is a filler that’s mostly used for the creases along the nasolabial fold, the lips, and to fill hollows in the face caused by aging or scarring. The ideal application is for people who want to look youthful in a natural way and would like to avoid permanent changes as in a facelift. How does Juvederm work? The active agent in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, which has a number of properties making it suitable as a filler: it’s hydrophilic, meaning it loves water, so when injected under the skin, it will draw lots of moisture into the area, making it look naturally filled with the presence of water, it will also attract nutrients, causing the skin above to be well nourished hyaluronic acid bonds well with collagen and elastin to support the area and make it soft and supple What about hyaluronic acid?

Can I Get A Lip Lift Done At The Same Time As A Rhinoplasty?

If you are a good candidate for the combination procedure, then the answer is yes: you can get a lip lift and rhinoplasty at the same time. Choosing to get a lip lift is a serious decision, so be sure to consider all the options before going ahead with the procedure. How can the lip lift be combined with rhinoplasty? Lip lifts shorten the upper area of the mouth, and the incision is usually made at the base of the nose or along the lip line, which allows the surgeon to remove the most tissue. The way rhinoplasties are performed depends on the method chosen and intended outcome, but a closed rhinoplasty pairs well with lip lifts because: there is plenty of blood flow going to the nose with a closed rhinoplasty healing time is not prolonged the tissue bridge will still be strong enough to hold everything in place…
