4 Common Reasons Women Choose Breast Augmentation

Micromastia: Perhaps the most common reason to pursue breast augmentation, micromastia is just what it sounds like: small breasts. However, micromastia can be rather subjective. One woman’s “too small” may be another woman’s “just enough.” If you simply feel that your breasts are too small relative to your frame, or your breasts never seemed to “fill in” during puberty, micromastia is likely the reason you’d list for wanting breast augmentation. Asymmetry: First, let’s address one important point. Very few sets of breasts, if any, are perfectly symmetrical. The expression you hear about eyebrows also applies to breasts: “They’re sisters, not … Continue reading

What Is a Liquid Facelift?

Everyone ages differently, and a liquid facelift can be customized to address each patient’s unique concerns. Many people choose a liquid facelift to minimize wrinkles, forehead lines, and the loss of facial volume, but we can also lift, sculpt, and contour areas of the face to achieve even greater results. Most often, a liquid facelift can be completed in a single outpatient session with minimal or no downtime required. It’s a popular approach with younger patients who want to postpone the look of aging as much as possible. In fact, this population makes up a large portion of the patient base at my medical … Continue reading

Considering Breast Augmentation? Ask Yourself These Questions

#1: What do I hope to achieve from this procedure? Believe it or not, breast augmentation is not always about larger breasts. Many women pursue breast surgery to correct an asymmetry or to even perk up “the girls” after pregnancy. But this might not be the best approach. A breast lift might be more appropriate for breasts that droop or nipples that point down, below the breast crease. A breast lift can be performed on its own or combined with breast augmentation to improve both volume and position. A breast augmentation on its own doesn’t noticeably lift the breasts and may actually make … Continue reading

BOTOX® & Fillers: Do You Know the Difference?

Injectable fillers and BOTOX. At my medical spa in Houston, many patients have heard of these products—or even used them themselves—but aren’t always sure how they differ. These products are both injectable, and they both aim to fight the look of wrinkles. But they work in very different ways. If you’re planning a nonsurgical rejuvenation or just a simple touch-up, it’s important to know what gives each product its power. BOTOX The active ingredient in BOTOX is botulinum toxin type A, which has the ability to reduce activity in specific muscles. Once injected, BOTOX surrounds the nerve and prevents receptors from … Continue reading

Recovering After Tummy Tuck: What You Need to Know

My body contouring and tummy tuck patients in Houston want to know all about what happens during recuperation—in fact, it’s usually one of their first questions. I want all of my patients to feel prepared and in control, and part of that preparedness means knowing exactly what to expect. Before their surgeries, patients report being afraid of pain or discomfort, worried about how much time to take off from work, and anxious about getting back to their normal daily activities. But knowledge is power! Let’s take a candid look at your post-op experience. Pain: Tummy tuck is major surgery, and … Continue reading
