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. In those cases, the doctor focuses on the cancer treatment first, completes the mastectomy and adjuvant therapy, and then proceeds with reconstruction. 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…

Can You Have a Neck Lift Without Getting a Facelift?

A few years ago, writer and humorist Nora Ephron wrote a book entitled, I Feel Bad About My Neck, in which she observed that women should begin neck coverage by age 43 because all the makeup and BOTOX COSMETIC® in the world is useless when a woman’s neck shows the signs of aging. She said, “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t if it had a neck.” The neck and the signs of aging Ephron has a point. The neck area is often neglected in the many preventative, anti-aging creams and treatments that are liberally applied to the face. However, this area is one of the first places where signs of age start to appear. So, when it comes to cosmetic surgery, some people may feel that they are not…

How to Sleep Safely After a Facelift

Sleep, after any surgery, is one of the best ways to boost your immune system and help your body heal faster. However, sleep is often difficult in the postoperative phase, especially after facelift surgery. Facelift patients are advised not to sleep on their sides and try to sleep with as little movement as possible at least for the first week after surgery in order to avoid pressure on the surgical sites which can damage sutures, cause bleeding and increase swelling. What is the ideal sleeping position post-facelift surgery? The ideal sleeping position for facelift patients is in on the back with the head raised above the heart. This sleeping position may be difficult for people who are used to sleeping on their sides, so it may be a good idea to start this practice a few months before the surgery. Sleeping on your back is a good habit to develop regardless…
