How Long should I Wait after Pregnancy before Getting a Tummy Tuck?

August 13, 2018

A tummy tuck is a popular procedure for mothers who would like to reverse the changes to the abdominal region caused by pregnancy.

One of the most common questions our plastic surgeons hear during tummy tuck consultations involves how long to wait after pregnancy before undergoing the procedure. While there is no hard-and-fast rule regarding the timing of your tummy tuck, our surgeons recommend following some general guidelines.

Dermaplaning

July 25, 2017

Dermaplaning is one of the top ways to exfoliate your face.  The process of Dermaplaning consists of an aesthetician using a small, sterile blade and swiping the blade upward in a gentle motion. A lot of patients we come across have questions about Dermaplaning, and we are here to answer those questions for you today.

  1. What is the purpose of Dermaplaning?

Why Are My Breasts Uneven?

July 25, 2017

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.  Whether that is one breast being larger than the other or one nipple being higher or lower than the other, no two breasts are the same.  The good news is there are surgical procedures to correct breast asymmetry.  With a wide variety of breast implant sizes and shapes, we here at Plastic Surgeons of Lexington can pick implants to help correct volume discrepancies.  This often requires using two different sized implants to…

Facial Rejuvenation Part 3: Botox and Fillers

June 07, 2017

Often times we find patients can benefit from using Botox, Dysport, or other fillers. These fillers can help dramatically improve the look of your skin and help you have a more youthful appearance.  In some cases, when combined with Chemical Peels or DOT Laser Therapy, you can achieve even better results.  So options do you have?  Here are some of the most commonly used fillers and how they work:

Dysport is a prescription injection that helps smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Dysport is injected in 5 points between and above the eyebrows and temporarily prevents the muscles…

Facial Rejuvenation Part 2: DOT Laser Skin Therapy

May 23, 2017

When it comes to Facial Rejuvenation, it’s no surprise that our patients want healthy, younger looking skin.  Since the face is one of the first things people notice, having fine lines, sun spots, dull skin tone, or acne scaring can be very frustrating.  Even as we start to take preventative measures now, sometimes the damage has already been done to the skin.  When this is the case, Laser Therapy Rejuvenation is an option to help repair your skin.

Laser Skin Therapy is a more aggressive solution than a Chemical Peel alone.  At Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, our Laser Skin Rejuvenation of choice is DOT Laser Therapy.  DOT Laser Therapy is an advanced new laser that makes skin…

Facial Rejuvenation Part 1: Face Lift

May 18, 2017

Visible signs of aging can be very difficult to conceal- especially on our face.  If your face is showing visible signs of wrinkling or sagging along you cheeks and/or jawline, you may be a candidate for a facelift.   Although there are many non-surgical treatments that can help give your skin a somewhat more youthful appearance, in some cases these treatments alone are not enough.

So, what can you expect when having a Face Lift Surgery?  The incisions made during a Face Lift are created in a discreet location; often along the hairline and in front of the ear.  This helps mask any visible scarring that may occur.   When having a Face Lift procedure, your Plastic Surgeon will…
