Minimizing the Spread and Appearance of Unattractive Spider Veins

Nobody likes spider veins. And even though millions of people have these blood vessels on their legs, face, and other parts of the body, no one actually wants to have those unattractive patches decorating their skin. Fortunately, there are relatively simple spider vein treatment procedures that can restore not just your beautiful skin, but your confidence as well. What are Spider Veins? Spider veins are blood vessels located near the surface of the skin that create unattractive red and blue veiny patches that spread across the skin. Spider veins are believed to be hereditary, and they tend to get worse with age. They don’t usually cause medical problems, but some people experience swelling, tiredness, or heaviness in the legs. This is especially true of people who spend most of the […]

How To Get A Breast Reduction Covered By Insurance

Extremely large, disproportionate breasts and breast tissue, also known as macromastia, is a serious issue for many women. Macromastia can interfere with many basic functions, such as sitting or standing properly, exercising, and sleeping. The excess tissue pulls on your back and shoulders, causing tenderness, pain, swelling, poor posture, and difficulty lifting. Macromastia is a medical condition. Some forms of macromastia can be addressed through non-surgical treatments. However, some forms can only be remedied by reduction mammaplasty, or breast reduction. In many cases, breast reduction can relieve many of the symptoms of macromastia, giving women the freedom to move and do as they please. How to Get a Breast Reduction Covered by Insurance If you are considering having a breast reduction procedure, you are probably aware of the financial burden […]

Thinking About Going Under the Knife? Timing Matters!

When it comes to plastic surgery, we receive a lot of questions from patients asking what time of year is best to undergo a surgical procedure. The answer to this question varies depending on the procedure, but we often recommend the spring season for patients interested in body contouring, facial surgery, and breast enhancement or reduction. Timing Matters Think you’ll get the same results from your surgery whether you have the procedure performed in the spring or the fall? That’s actually not always the case. During certain seasons, especially winter and spring, you may have several holidays off from work. These long holiday weekends offer you some extra time to rest and recuperate without spending too much time away from the job. If you have school-age kids, it’s best to […]

Cuttin’ to the Chase: The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures

If you have a visible imperfection on your body, chances are that there is a surgery or treatment that can correct it. With hundreds of plastic surgery procedures available to doctors to correct a variety of issues, it may seem surprising that a few surgeries are far and away the most popular ones out there, but records show that the top five surgeries have been used more times than dozens of other procedures put together. When it comes to the top five surgical treatments, it seems that minimally invasive is the new rage. All top five plastic surgery procedures in 2015 were, in fact, minimally invasive procedures. Ranking first of all treatments, for example, and accounting for more procedures than the other top four combined, is Botox. The popular skin […]

What Women Should Know About Breast Cancer Awareness

October 21st, 2015 is the fourth annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day. The aim of this important day is to remind everyone of the availability of breast reconstruction after cancer surgery. The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998 mandated that patients would have a breast reconstructive option available through their own insurance plan. Unfortunately, studies have shown that less than 25% of women in the US are offered a breast reconstruction consultation with a plastic surgeon prior to their breast cancer surgery or treatment. This pre-operative consultation is important because a patient must be well informed and fully educated about all options before decisions can be appropriately made. The timing of breast reconstruction with breast cancer surgery can have a major impact on outcomes of shape, size, safety, […]

Reducing Bruising After a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty involves surgical restructuring of the nose. With the sensitive location of this procedure, it’s common for patients to experience some degree of bruising on the face. Although typical, it is possible to minimize this discoloration to hasten recovery. Realistic Expectations Everyone is unique with different physiological responses to surgery. Some people experience very light bruising, while others have dark and widespread bruises around the incision and under the eyes. Because it’s impossible to predict how each patient will respond, it’s beneficial for people to expect to have significant discoloration after surgery. If individual results are less pronounced, a patient may feel relieved and fortunate. If results are significant, at least the patient might not feel surprised. Patients should always discuss post-operative recovery thoroughly with a physician prior to the […]

The Benefits of Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons

Whether it’s a simple procedure, like a Botox injection, or something more complex and involved, such as a reconstructive surgery, your operation will be best handled by a board-certified plastic surgeon. You may be wondering exactly what the term “board-certified” means, so here are a few criteria that a surgeon must meet in order to become board-certified. The candidate must have undergone 5 years of special surgical training. The candidate must have completed a residency program in plastic surgery. The candidate must have passed both written and oral plastic surgery examinations. Only once a surgeon completes these 3 steps will the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) recognize him or her as a board-certified surgeon. The FDA recommends that you do plenty of research before choosing a doctor to perform […]
