One of the most asked-about aspects of plastic surgery is scarring. The truth is that anytime the body is cut into, it leaves a scar as part of the body’s natural healing response. While scars fade significantly over time, in many cases they never disappear completely. However, there are many things that you and your… Read More

How long does it take to recover from a breast lift surgery? In most cases, the recovery time after a breast lift procedure is relatively short. Many patients find that they are back to their everyday lives within three weeks of surgery, notes Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau. Getting back on your feet quickly after a breast lift means listening to what your surgeon says and coming back for follow-up appointments as needed.
Breast implant surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the U.S. today, and as a result of the wealth of experience that has developed surrounding it, it’s also one of the most successful. While some patients may achieve a successful resolution through traditional revision surgery, others can benefit substantially from the incorporation of acellularized dermal matrix (ADM) as part of their procedure. (You can read more about ADM in a recent blog post here.)

Life can really do a number on the breasts. The effects of gravity, aging, and pregnancy, can cause the breasts to lose their firmness and to start sagging.

Lifting a noticeably saggy breast area can result in a much slimmer, much more youthful and even more energetic profile, and when performed by a skilled surgeon, the results of a breast lift can last for years.
People who choose to get plastic surgery do so for many different reasons.

Whatever your reasons for surgery, it’s essential that you have realistic expectations for the before and after results, notes Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau.
