I recently saw a Pilates instructor 12 weeks after I performed an abdominoplasty and hernia repair on her. She has an amazing cosmetic outcome, but she gave me such a heartfelt thank you for restoring her core strength and tone. She reported to me that she had not felt that strong since before her first pregnancy fifteen years prior. It was very gratifying to hear here uplifting story.
The “follow her recovery” section of our website is a unique section where we follow the progress of healing from surgery with periodic post op photos. This is particularly useful to see in breast augmentation where variability in female chest wall and breast anatomy as well as patient desired outcomes often require a certain period of healing time in order to see the “final” cosmetic outcome. In breast augmentation, the immediate post op outcome may be visually altered for a period of weeks by tight tissues and sub-optimal cosmetic anatomy. Release of constricted anatomy, for instance, may take several months to fully loosen and soften. (see new case 1 in follow her recovery.) Extra tight (tighter than typical) tissues may take more time to soften (about six weeks) than more ideal anatomy (which may take only three weeks to soften). Implants (Technically speaking) in my practice are precisely placed, it is the anatomy surrounding the implant that needs time to soften and remodel. By doing this, the volume within the implant re-positions itself( generally speaking) to the anticipated planned outcome set forth at he original surgical procedure.
Therefore, it is constructive for patients to see how typical outcomes come about. Enjoy!
In the social media age, everyone has their picture taken. If you have ANY saggy skin in your neck, you undoubtedly “crane” your neck, raising it upward as too elongate and pull neck skin taught. So all, not so young women, now are trained to crane upward and outward. I have a simple and more permanent solution- a neck lift or face and neck lift! Than you can proudly display your youthful contours!
