Last month, news broke that 17-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter had undergone breast reduction that took her from an F cup to a D cup.
Many women find that they feel less happy with certain aspects of their bodies following the birth of a child. While holding a newborn is joyous and exciting, the physical changes of pregnancy may leave you feeling as if you’ve lost yourself in the process. But an exciting cosmetic approach called the mommy makeover is specifically designed to help mothers restore bodies they’ll love.
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.
