It's a checklist you don't want. Saggy skin? Check. Loose jowls? Check. Turkey waddle? Check. If these are just a few of the problems looking back at you in the mirror, chances are a facelift is what you need. It may sound drastic, but times have changed.
The sun is shining brighter and longer, and the temperatures are rising. Summer is here! We all know what this means- shedding our winter clothes and showing more skin. Wouldn’t it be incredible if you could take those unwanted areas of fat and move them somewhere else (the butt, the breasts)? Thankfully, we have the technology to do so! The process, called fat transfer or fat grafting, involves removing fat from one area of the body via gentle liposuction and injecting it into a more desirable area.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with fellowships in Aesthetic, Breast, & Laser Surgery, I have been on the cutting edge of breast augmentation surgery for more than three decades. In a typical week, I meet with dozens of patients seeking breast augmentation. Several questions and topics are discussed, with the most popular being “saline or silicone?” I take pride in empowering my patients at Persons Plastic Surgery in Lafayette to make informed choices. Implants have come a long way since being developed over fifty years ago. Advances in technology and surgical techniques make it easier and safer than ever to enhance the shape and size of your breasts.
Let’s face it: age and menopause are not topics women talk about enough. Like many women in my age group, I recently started going through pre-menopause. It seems unfair: my youngest child is only nine, and I feel like I just recovered from the changes associated with growing three children in my body. Now here I am in pre-menopause, having internal sauna moments; the heavy then light cycles, the fog, and oh my gosh, the shape change. The changes happen because female sex hormone levels naturally decrease as we get older.
