A Week-By-Week Look at Tummy Tuck Recovery

You’ve chosen a surgeon and done your research. You may have even scheduled your surgery. But do you know what to expect after your tummy tuck? It’s one of the most common questions I hear from my tummy tuck patients in Montreal. Let’s break down the tummy tuck recovery week by week so you can make precise plans. If you’re normally an active person, as many of my tummy tuck patients are, it can be difficult to settle down after surgery and give yourself the rest you need. However, listening to your body—and following your surgeon’s instructions—is imperative to achieving good results and minimizing the risk of complications. Week 1 This is the primary recuperation period and the time when slowing down and taking it easy is most important. You can expect to spend much of your surgery day napping, resting, and taking occasional short walks around the house to…

When Is a Facelift Right for You?

For those of us lucky enough to grow old, the physical outcomes of aging can be distressing and difficult to accept. This is especially true if you generally feel healthy, vibrant, and youthful. When your external appearance doesn’t match your internal feelings, it can be difficult to watch lines set in and your features droop. Many people who consider a surgical facelift here in Montreal struggle with the question of “when.” When is the best age to undergo surgery—when will it yield the most meaningful, long-lasting results? The answer isn’t as simple as one might hope. There is no perfect age when facelift surgery becomes ideal. Instead, it’s almost entirely based on the level of facial aging that’s present. Because every person ages differently, some may be “ready” for facelift surgery by their mid-40s, while others feel comfortable delaying the surgery until their 60s. Typically, I look for the following…

Natural Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer

When I talk to women considering breast augmentation in Laval or Montreal, many explain they want to improve their contour but don’t want their breasts to look surgically enhanced. Others are simply seeking an all-natural solution that doesn’t involve implants. I appreciate these patients’ inquiries and always explain that breast implants have come a long way and, along with advanced surgical techniques, can provide a very natural look. However, for other patients, I offer the option of fat transfer, which is one of the surest and most natural ways to discreetly enhance your breasts. What Is Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer? This type of breast augmentation differs from traditional breast enhancement because it takes fat from one or more areas of the patient’s body and uses that fat to enhance the size of the breasts. Women can choose to remove unwanted fat from their abdomen, thighs, hips, or other areas, which…

Get Ready for Your Rhinoplasty

Year after year, rhinoplasty retains its popularity because of its ability to transform the look of the entire face with minimal scarring. But before you choose a doctor and book your rhinoplasty in Montreal, it’s important to know exactly what to expect and where to start. Research Before your rhinoplasty, it’s important to reconcile your goals for surgery with the procedure’s limitations. As you well know, any type of elective surgery is a huge decision. Prior to surgery, be sure you understand the underlying concepts of the procedure, how it’s performed, and how long until you can see your results. Rhinoplasty, like many other plastic surgery procedures, is largely customized based on the patient’s existing anatomy, aesthetic goals, and more. When you consult with your surgeon, be sure you don’t leave without a thorough understanding of his or her technique, as well as your own unique timeline for recuperation and…

5 Post-Liposuction Exercise Tips

Liposuction surgery is a great way for patients in the Point-Claire area to get rid of areas of fat they don’t want, such as muffin tops and love handles. However, if you don’t exercise after surgery, liposuction may only end up making your body exchange one set of problems for another. According to research, when fat is removed from the abdominal area, the body replaces it by increasing levels of belly fat. This can put your body at an increased risk of developing diabetes or heart disease. To counter this, a regular exercise regime should be followed after surgery. This is the best way to gain long-lasting results from liposuction. 1. Start Gradually Exercise after undergoing liposuction should not begin until 2-6 weeks after surgery. This is to ensure that the wounds are fully healed and not at risk of reopening under stress. However, you can do light activities such…
