What effects does smoking have on the...

Smoking causes the blood vessels to constrict, reducing the blood supply and the oxygen carried by the blood to the surgical area. The tissues need this blood supply and the oxygen that the blood carries in order to heal. When the blood supply is reduced the tissues heal more slowly. Whether you are having a breast augmentation, a mastopexy, an abdominoplasty or another procedure, you should plan to quit six weeks prior to your surgery.

Can I sunbathe if I have breast...

With many patients wishing to go south for the holidays, we are often asked if they can sunbathe if they have had breast augmentation surgery. Tanning salons or sunbathing will not hurt your breast implant, but it may make your scars worse. You should avoid sun exposure or wear sunscreen over your incisions. This is the best way to ensure an optimal scar.

Placement of Breast Implants

During breast augmentation surgery, the breast implants will either be placed under the chest muscle (submuscular), or on top of the muscle and under the breast gland (subglandular). Submuscular placement of breast implants may reduce the chances of your implants being felt through the skin, and help reduce the chance of scar tissue hardening around your implants. It will also make it easier to image your breast during a mammogram. However, this placement choice may mean a longer surgery and recovery time. Having subglandular breast augmentation may make your surgery shorter and reduce your recovery…

How does Lipodissolve work?

Tomorrow we are offering Lipodissolve to our eager patients. One of the most common questions we get asked us “Just how does Lipodissolve work?” We explain that when a substance called Phosphatidylcholine or PPC is injected into fat cells, it has a detergent like effect and causes fat cells to rupture and then dissolve. The liver then breaks down this fat and it is excreted by the body. These fat dissolving injections also cause tightening of the skin in the treatment areas. This is an advantage of the technique over liposuction in certain areas. Areas…

How does Lipodissolve work?

On Monday, we offered Lipodissolve or Injection Lipolysis to our eager patients. Many ask how Lipodissolve works. We explain Lipodissolve melts superfluous fat away by means of an injection. During the procedure, the substance phosphatidylcholine or PPC is directly injected into undesired fat deposits. The active substance is a natural compound made from soybean. The body itself makes PPC in the same composition for various functions, especially in those related to fat metabolism.

What causes the breast to sag?

The breast consists of milk ducts and glands, surrounded by fatty tissue that provides its shape and fee. Situated beneath the breast is the pectoralis major muscle, a large muscle that assists in chest movement, and where a breast implant is placed when having submuscular breast augmentation. Factors such as pregnancy, rapid weight loss and the effects of gravity as you age, combine to stretch the skin, which may cause the breast to droop or sag. Some women also have a variation in size or shape from the right to left breast, which is called…
