As the shelter-in-place restrictions continue to change the shape and pattern of our days, and we each do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, many of us are feeling stressed and anxious about our health, wellness, wellbeing, and even our futures. 2020 has ushered in trying and uncertain times that have left all of us stressed about the myriad life-changes involving employment, unexpected homeschooling, and the intermittent scarcity of goods and essentials. As the promise of normal life, good weather, and the opportunity to see and be seen by our loved ones approaches, I find myself contemplating my appearance and the changes we have all undergone as stress levels rise and routine personal maintenance has been out of our reach.
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.
