Signs You Need a Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Signs You Need a Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure to reduce the size of the breasts. This procedure enables women to bring the breasts into proportions with the rest of the body. When the breasts are very large in comparison to the rest of the body, it can lead to pain, discomfort, stress, and poor body image. 

Signs you need a breast reduction are:

You’re Experiencing Back, Neck, or Shoulder Pain. 

Pain in the back, neck, or shoulders is a key sign that a breast reduction could be beneficial. The weight of overly large breasts can strain the muscles in these areas, leading to pain and discomfort. This pain can become worse over time and significantly diminish your quality of life. By removing excess breast tissue, this procedure will lighten the load on your back, neck, and shoulder for less pain.  (more…)

Improve Bladder Control with a Tummy Tuck

Improve Bladder Control

Improve Bladder Control with a Tummy Tuck

As one of the most popular surgical cosmetic procedures for the body, the tummy tuck helps patients achieve a slimmer, more toned stomach. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, a tummy tuck can also improve bladder control for individuals struggling with urinary incontinence. Let’s learn more about this unique benefit of the tummy tuck and how it can help a range of patients. 

Understanding The Tummy Tuck Procedure

During a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon will stitch the abdominal muscles together to improve the look and stability. After tightening the abdominal muscles, the surgeon will get rid of excess skin tissue to create a smooth appearance of the abdomen. This process takes about two to three hours. Patients who maintain a healthy, stable weight can achieve permanent results from a tummy tuck.  (more…)

What to Expect After Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Breast Reconstruction Surgery

What to Expect After Breast Reconstruction Surgery

If a prior breast surgery didn’t provide the results that you were hoping for, or if a complication occurred after the procedure, breast reconstruction surgery can resolve the issue. With breast reconstruction surgery, women can achieve the look of the breasts that they want three months or longer after the initial procedure.  Reconstruction surgery improves the appearance of the breasts and resolves complications such as implant displacement, implant rupture, or capsular contracture. It also provides patients with the option to switch from saline implants to silicone, or vice versa. No matter the reason, if you’re considering reconstruction surgery, you’ll want to know what to expect after the procedure.

Immediately After Breast Reconstruction Surgery

Immediately after reconstruction surgery, you’ll likely feel weak. We advise patients to have a loved one take them home after the procedure. However, most patients need only a few days of rest before returning to their regular activities. Getting plenty of sleep and avoiding physical activity is important for patients to recover quickly after the surgery. (more…)
