The cosmetic appearance of the mons and female genitalia has spawned a plethora of new noninvasive as well as invasive procedures designed to make the genital area as attractive as feasible as it now generates a lot of attention appearance wise. I feel this has largely been a byproduct of ladies feeling comfortable changing in front of peers (whether at the gym or out shopping), as well as the ready availability of porn from electronic devices such as phones and computers. With the touch of a finger, one can practically see anything they wish which allows to easily compare their anatomy with others.
All tummy tucks get rid of excess skin from the lower abdomen and hopefully a large number of stretch marks and lower abdominal scars. This alone gives a remarkable improvement but should serve as only the beginning if you truly want the ultimate tummy tuck. Besides getting rid of excess skin, what are the “little things” that yield a fabulous result after a tummy tuck?
Poor guinea pigs. Nobody wants to be one. To be one infers they are the ‘first to try’ or that someone is practicing or learning at that person’s expense. The last place one wants to be a guinea pig is in the arena of cosmetic surgery. The result can be catastrophic and costly to repair. With the changes in medicine, more and more inadequately trained physicians are willing to perform cosmetic surgery on unwitting patients. It is imperative one thoroughly evaluate their surgeon’s credentials and more imperative, their experience with the chosen procedure to ensure a favorable result.
Revisional Breast Surgery – Shelby K. Brantley, Jr. MD
Many women look daily in the mirror and question if their result from breast surgery, whether a byproduct of a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, represents “the best it can be”. Often, the answer is no, although their surgeon may indicate it is “as good as it gets”. Recent improvements in breast surgery continue to elevate the benchmark in achievable results. One would be well served to consider these new tools in an expert breast surgeon’s arsenal. Implant options have radically changed. Most manufactures offer a variety of styles of implants where the projection versus width options have a better diversity. These allow surgeons to better match a patient’s breast width to their implant. Imagine narrow, more projecting implants on a petite woman that allows a volume increase without being too wide on her narrow frame. Texturing has regained popularity and purports to decrease the incidence of capsular contracture. Shaped (gummy bear) implants are now available which have less upper pole fullness and result in a more “natural” or unaugmentated appearance.
