What are the “breast” options? – Breast Augmentation MI

Enhancing your breast line can enhance your life – what are your options?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures because it allows women to increase the volume and size of the breasts to best match their goals and body type. Breast implants can be filled with silicone gel or a saline solution, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes; these choices allow the patient to determine the profile and tailor it to the look they are going for – high profile or more natural?

Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) on the other hand is used to treat breast sagging – which naturally occurs due to pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss and aging. A breast lift normally consists of the removal of excess skin and tightening the skin. Additionally, it can be combined with a breast augmentation in order to regain volume.

Breast reduction surgery is performed when a woman has excessively large breasts which can cause neck, back and shoulder pain. Breast reduction surgery helps by drastically reducing the breast size and removing excess skin so that your breasts are more proportionate to the body frame/size.

Regaining confidence and femininity is invaluable to most women which is why it is important to consider all of the options before making a decision regarding breast surgery.

How to Regain your Pre-Baby Body!

Regaining your Pre-Baby Body!

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are experiences that many women look forward to and enjoy. However, although you may be happy being a mother, there are some changes to the body that you may not be pleased with. The body changes quite drastically throughout the pregnancy and breastfeeding – the breasts and abdomen stretch, and the skin may lose elasticity which sometimes does not naturally return.

Women who have used all measures to lose weight often turn to cosmetic plastic surgery to achieve their desired goals. Typically, patients choose to undergo a combination of procedures in order to recapture their pre-pregnancy shape. The most frequently combined procedures include breast lift surgery or augmentation, traditional and/or laser liposuction and a tummy tuck, especially if their abdomen did not retract or if they underwent a C-section during delivery.

The combination of these procedures can be life changing as they help restore confidence and femininity by restoring the breasts to a more youthful shape and position, and tightening and flattening the abdomen. During a private consultation patients are able to discuss their needs and it will be determined if they are a candidate for the procedures; it is typically only advised to have the procedures if there is not plan to have more children.

The gift of plastic surgery?

The gift of plastic surgery? Is that Acceptable?

You may have heard of cosmetic surgery being given as a gift in the past – perhaps a husband gave his wife a breast augmentation for Christmas or a Rhinoplasty for Mother’s Day ? At first glance, this may seem inappropriate, but why since many receive gift certificates to other establishments like spas, restaurants and stores?

The reason is that it’s a little more complicated than it seems at first. Most plastic surgeons draw the line at a consultation as the only reasonable plastic surgery gift. However, if the doctor and patient agree that a procedure is reasonable, and the patient desires the procedure then certainly the patient can have a third party pay for it. At that point, there are only financial obligations, but not ethical issues.

Note to the men out there. Don’t surprise your significant other with a nose job that she has never mentioned before or isn’t on board with – you might end up in the dog house. Send her to the spa instead.

Latisee: You may never need mascara again

latisee-troy-miLatisee: You may never need mascara again

Nothing frames the eyes and makes them pop like longer, fuller, darker lashes. One easy way of obtaining beautiful long lashes is with a topical medication called Latisse. When Latisse was first introduced, I tested it on several women who work in my office to first hand witness the results. They were so impressive, that I now carry the product in my office and offer it to my patients. Some of the women don’t need to wear mascara any longer.

Latisse solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) and is applied daily to grow the eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. If you have noticed a change in your lashes over the years, you may want to consider using Latisse – the only FDA approved lash hair growth stimulator with studies proving both safety and results.

My patients have been extremely pleased with the results of Latisee over the last few years. It truly helps make a statement with your lashes!
