Dr. Basner's Plastic Surgery Blog
Plastic Surgeon serving Lutherville Timonium, Baltimore & Columbia areas of Maryland
The only way to know for sure how long your tummy tuck recovery will be is to discuss the matter with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Adam Basner. Each person's recovery is somewhat unique, and Dr. Basner will help you determine what your downtime will look like. Activities requiring a certain amount of downtime include:
For many women, bigger breasts are not always better. If you have breasts you feel are overly large, breast reduction may be the right way to not only reduce their size, but also to improve the overall shape of your breasts. For many women, breast reduction is covered by health insurance under certain circumstances.
Tummy tuck surgery removes extra fat and skin in the abdominal area. Good candidates are often women who want to restore a pre-pregnancy tummy, or men or women who have recently lost a significant amount of weight.
Like any surgical procedure, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) requires incisions and leaves scars where the incisions heal; however, the subtle scars of blepharoplasty are virtually undetectable because of the location and small size of the incisions.
Excess, flabby skin around your midsection can make you feel a lot less confident and attractive. You may be interested in abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) to restore a slimmer, flatter midriff. If you are a good candidate for this procedure, it can be an excellent way to get defined body contours.
Choosing a plastic surgeon can involve a lot of research. With so many plastic surgeons practicing just in the Baltimore area alone, it can be daunting to think about how to narrow your choice down to just one plastic surgeon. Although we encourage you to call each of the plastic surgery centers you are interested in to ask them questions about their qualifications, we also recommend using Healthgrades® and other online reviews as one of the tools in your search.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of chubby round cheeks and want to have a more angular facial shape, then surgical removal of your buccal fat pad may be the right option for you. A large buccal fat pad is often an inherited trait, and it may not shrink even if you have lost weight elsewhere.
Modern breast implants offer a range of customizable options so that you can have the final look, feel and features you want. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner will explain all of your breast implant options, what they mean, and how they can be used to create the final results you want to see.
