WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A WOMAN PLASTIC SURGEON IN 2017?

by Natalie (SU)
Even though the overwhelming amount of plastic surgery patients are women, you may find it surprising that only about 14% of all plastic surgeons are women…and that is up from 3% just a generation ago! Slowly but surely, however, more women are entering the field of cosmetic surgery, making it easier for patients to find a female plastic surgeon.

I'm Not a Mommy: Should I Get a Mommy Makeover

I'm Not a Mommy: Should I Get a Mommy Makeover

by Natalie (SU)
Your best friend calls you and is so excited she can hardly get the news out to you. No, she’s not pregnant. She’s already done that (twice), and has two beautiful children to show for it. The reason for her excitement is she just came back from the doctor’s office where she has scheduled her “mommy makeover”. You’re absolutely thrilled for her. You know how hard she works to keep her body in shape. You know because you’re right there with her, watching what you eat, going to the gym, and staying active. You acknowledge that motherhood takes it toll. Handling two young children while juggling the rest of her life isn’t easy. Sometimes she looks a little tired, her skin a little dull. She deserves to do this because you love your friend and you want her to feel comfortable with her body – to get that boost of confidence a makeover will offer her. Then you think, wait, I don’t have children. I work hard to stay fit and look fresh also, but I could really use a lift too! Yet, I’m not a mommy. So, Can I get a mommy makeover?

The Difference Between Pediatric Surgery & Adult Plastic Surgery

The Difference Between Pediatric Surgery & Adult Plastic Surgery

by Natalie (SU)
The word “plastic” comes from the Greek plastikos – meaning "to build up" or "to take form." Surgery is the treatment of injuries or medical conditions with operative instruments. Hence, plastic surgery remakes or reforms parts of the body through reconstructive and cosmetic surgical procedures. Did you know that plastic surgery can apply to children as well as adults? Just as pediatricians differ from internal medicine doctors, pediatric plastic surgeons are distinct from general plastic surgeons.

Unveiling Your Inner Beauty: A Mommy Makeover Approach

by Natalie (SU)
Carrying a baby and giving birth are among the most intense and rewarding of life’s experiences. Nothing can quite prepare you for the moment you become responsible for a tiny human being who loves you and needs you like no one else. It’s understandable if your appearance is not a priority for a while, but when you do get a good look at your body, you may have a hard time seeing how beautiful you really are. While diet and exercise can get your comeback started, a little help from a board-certified plastic surgeon can get you over the finish line looking good.

Reasons You Need to See a Craniofacial Surgeon

Reasons You Need to See a Craniofacial Surgeon

by Natalie (SU)
Not everyone needs a craniofacial surgeon, but when you do, it is very important that you seek appropriate treatment from one of these highly skilled and qualified specialists. Craniofacial surgeons are dentists and medical doctors, that, after finishing residencies in either oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, or ear nose and throat surgery, then complete a fellowship that trains them in treating complex deformities of the head, skull, face, jaw, and neck. While some children are born with congenital abnormalities, others may develop deformities as they grow, and still other people develop problems as a result of other medical issues or trauma.

Oh My Aching Back: The Spine Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Oh My Aching Back: The Spine Benefits of a Breast Reduction

by Natalie (SU)
Are you dealing with chronic upper back pain? And if you are and you’re pretty sure it’s because of the size of your breasts, how long have been thinking about doing something about it? Well, you’re not alone. Nearly 1 million women in America suffer from chronic symptoms related to large breasts. It’s not just back pain. They complain of neck and shoulder pain, a feeling of breast heaviness, numbness or tingling in their fingers and wrists, difficulty exercising, skin problems, and eventually posture problems from the constant strain of carrying such a heavy load. Many women don’t address it until prompted by their primary care doctor, but there is no reason to suffer in silence. In most cases, breast reduction surgery, or a reduction mammoplasty, can be easily performed, with minimal risk. However, the benefits are significant when you end each day without an aching back.

Plastic Surgeon: From the Perspective of a Former Model Plastic Surgeon

by Natalie (SU)
Have you been thinking about having plastic surgery? Maybe you have always wanted a breast lift, or wish your tummy were flatter. Or has that small bump on your nose always bothered you? If you have been thinking about it, I’m sure you would like to talk to someone that will understand your concerns, and that knows what options you should consider. How about talking to someone who has been trained to be a plastic surgeon in some of the most highly regarded institutions in the world? Do you think that conversation would help you make your decision? Well, what if this surgeon was also a woman – and a former model? Wouldn’t that seem like the perfect person to discuss your potential surgery with? Dr. Yates is exactly this medical professional. She can talk to you from a unique perspective as not only being another woman, but also as someone who is both a plastic surgeon and former model.

What is a Thigh Lift?

What is a Thigh Lift?

by Stephanie Meadows
Losing a significant amount of weight can be an accomplishment to be proud of, as well as giving yourself the gift of a healthier body. Becoming healthy and being proud of the skin you are in, can help your confidence and self-esteem soar. Unfortunately, for many people, that excitement and that moment when they step on the scale and see their goal weight can be short lived. Instead of seeing all the amazing progress they have made, when they look in the mirror all they can see is the excess skin that has been left behind.

Preparing for Vaginoplasty

Preparing for Vaginoplasty

by Stephanie Meadows
As women age, they go through certain life experiences and changes, such as vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes, and their pelvic and vaginal muscles can become loose over time. Sometimes, patients often voice their concern to their doctor about when they have intercourse that having an orgasm becomes difficult due to lack of friction and tightness. In other words, age and other factors can cause the vagina to stretch, become discolored, be uncomfortable, and cause the skin to sag.
