As with all surgical procedures, it takes time to recover after breast enlargement. The best thing you can do for yourself in the first few weeks after surgery is to get plenty of rest and take care of your body.

During the first week of recovery, you’re not going to feel like doing much more than relaxing on the couch. Take advantage of this rare opportunity and treat yourself to some much-needed downtime.

A facelift is one of many cosmetic solutions designed to give your face a more youthful appearance. As a surgical procedure, it involves a larger commitment than other skin rejuvenation treatments. However, it also yields more enduring results. If signs of aging have begun to appear on your face, it may be time to consider a facelift.
What a Facelift Can Treat

One of the most common signs of facial aging is the development of jowls. Jowls form when the skin along your jaw line begins to sag downward, resulting in loose skin and a poorly defined jaw.

While there is no hard-and-fast rule regarding the timing of your tummy tuck, our surgeons recommend following some general guidelines.

This is a common question I hear from my patients during a breast augmentation consultation. First off, you are not alone when it comes to breast asymmetry and there is nothing wrong with your breasts. In fact the majority of women have some sort of breast asymmetry.
