Better Breasts: Considering All Your Options in Breast Alteration

Breast Augmentation at MYAAs a woman, it is important that I have confidence in my body.  But, often times there are issues that cannot be improved with diet or exercise. With modern technology women have the opportunity to improve their appearance using plastic surgery.  And if it makes a difference by giving you the confidence you wish to posses, then there are numerous options available for you.

Learn if you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation, the different surgeries available, and the risks associated with surgically altering your breasts.

Breast altering surgery can be achieved in four ways:

1.Breast enlargement can be considered using saline or silicone implants. The size of the implant will depend on patient wishes and their physical characteristics. Small volume augmentations are being tried using fat injections as well, however, there are safety issues that still need to be evaluated.

2. Breast lifts are used to reshape the breast and bring the nipple to a more desirable position. Depending on the amount of sagging, various incisions can be planned with the goal of minimizing scars. For some patients, a combination of augmentation and lift maybe needed to achieve the desired outcome.

3. Breast reductions are performed to alleviate the physical discomfort and aesthetic concerns with large and heavy breasts.

4. Reconstructions are performed after breast cancer surgery for those whose breasts need to be restored to their pre-lumpectomy or mastectomy state.

Risks:  anesthesia, bleeding, infection, poor wound healing, unsightly scars, asymmetry

Risks Associated with Implants Especially: infection, risks of capsular contracture

Regardless of the specific type of surgery, it is very important for the patient and the doctor to plan the procedure with adequate knowledge about detailed plans. It is helpful to review photographs of similar cases to have proper expectations.

How to Decrease Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Anti-AgingAging is a dreaded process that seems to sneak up on us out of no where.  One day we look in the mirror and realize…  oh my gosh, I’m… old.  Come on, I’m not the only one who has had this feeling!

Following are a few anti aging treatments from our experts that will have you looking happily in the mirror, keeping your fine lines and wrinkles to a bare minimum.


Anti Aging Treatments

Most fine lines especially around the eyes, (frequently not known!), are due to dehydration, caused by lack of water in the body, also smoking!

As a facialist the most popular anti-aging treatments on my menu are:

  1. Iontophoresis, using electrical current to transfer amazing products to the deepest layer of the skin, a long lasting and visible effect.
  2. Facial massage, with lymphatic drainage, and muscle stimulating technique, using rose oil and rose quartz crystal for skin illumination
  3. Deep exfoliation, with microdermabrasion crystals and sonic cleansing brush.

All the above will greatly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially carried out on a regular basis.

Relax Facial Wrinkles

More options have become available to help reduce the signs of facial aging without plastic surgery. New neuromodulators which help relax facial muscles, such as Dysport and Xeomin, may help reduce forehead wrinkles or Crow’s feet that were previously only treated with Botox Cosmetic. Treatment is performed in the office without anesthesia and results last several months.
