How Stress Impacts the Skin

Authored by:
April 05, 2022
Stress is an inescapable part of the human experience. How we deal with it has a direct influence on the health and appearance of our bodies. Stress is the body’s natural response to imminent danger and, as such, the effects it has on the body make sense. Increased heart rate, muscle tension, and rapid thoughts can help a person survive a truly harrowing situation. This response is, however, meant to be acute, not persistent. When our bodies are in a constant state of stress, the consequences can be profound. Stress increases the risks for heart disease, sleep problems, weight gain, concentration difficulties, and memory loss. These things can have a cascading effect, impacting every… Read Full Post

When is the Best Time to Have a Tummy Tuck?

Authored by:
March 16, 2022
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is used to tighten and tone the midsection of the body. With this procedure, excess fat is removed from the abdominal area before loose and sagging skin is excised, both of which help to uncover and enhance definition. The procedure can also be used to reattach abdominal muscles that have become separated (diastasis recti) due to pregnancy or weight gain. This helps to draw the waist in and further improves contours. Reattaching a separated abdominal wall may also help to prevent certain types of hernia, ease lower back pain, and improve balance and core strength. The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are people who are close to their… Read Full Post

There are many breast implant options, including implant type (saline or silicone), size, shape (round or… Read Full Post

Does Breast Lift Surgery Leave a Scar?

Authored by:
February 08, 2022
Breast lift surgery requires incisions to be made on the breast mound. Through these incisions, underlying tissue can be lifted and repositioned, and loose and sagging skin can be removed. Depending on the amount of ptosis (sagging) present, the incision may be made around the nipple alone or around the nipple with an additional incision running vertically to the breast crease. In some cases, an additional incision will be needed horizontally along the breast crease to fully lift and firm the breasts. When incisions are made around the nipple alone, scars are often completely obscured by the dark skin of the areola. Incisions on the mound or along the crease, however, will always be… Read Full Post
