Following your surgeon’s instructions is key to a successful abdominoplasty.Weight gain around the midsection is a common problem experienced by both men and women. Often, this belly fat can be very stubborn, refusing to melt away with diet and exercise alone. Even if the fat is lost, the abdomen may still be protruding due to weak abdominal muscles or loss of skin elasticity.

Can Smokers Get Cosmetic Surgery?

For best results, smokers need to quit smoking before and after cosmetic surgery.Numerous studies have shown that smoking leads to premature aging, especially of the face. For example, one recent study comparing twins found that the twin with the longer smoking history was easily identifiable by their more pronounced facial wrinkles, droopy upper eyelids, bags beneath the eyes, and sagging jowls. Unfortunately, correcting these issues is not as easy for a smoker as for a non-smoker. While almost any non-smoker is typically a good candidate for facelifts, eyelifts, necklifts, and other surgical procedures designed to deliver a younger look to the face, a smoker will not be a good candidate unless they are able to quit smoking for several weeks before and after the surgery.

Can You Really Get the Body You Deserve With Diet and Exercise Alone?

Fall is one of the best times of year to get a tummy tuck and get the figure you want before swimsuit season. Feel confident in a bikini without fighting biology.

Botox: Erasing Time to Restore Your Natural Beauty

Botox is an FDA-approved prescription delivered by injection that softens the appearance of wrinkles. It blocks the nerves that contract muscles beneath the surface of your skin by temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. It is best when used on dynamic wrinkles (those that have not had time to set) and those that show up when you smile or frown. The idea is that if a muscle does not move it cannot form a wrinkle. With Botox cosmetic treatments, you can smile without worrying about giving away your age.

Accentuate Your Curves With Non-Surgical Laser Liposculpting

Laser liposculpting is a non-surgical method for combining liposuction and body contouring. By specifically targeting acne and cellulite, the physician can beautifully sculpt and reshape your body, erasing years away from your appearance. Additionally, it is an ideal approach for melting away fat while adding collagen to your skin, improving its firmness, elasticity, and youthful vibrance. The result is an evenly contoured tone. This technique works great on the stomach, arms, thighs, buttocks, jowl, and neck areas.
