Everybody loves a bargain. Even among the most affluent, there’s a thrill in getting a great product for less than what others are paying. When it comes to goods like clothing, jewelry, electronics – even cars and homes, shopping around for the lowest price can be a sound approach to keeping as much of your heard-earned money as possible in your pocket. What’s the worst that can go wrong? An item malfunctions and you return it, or maybe the return time has expired and you chalk it up to a lesson learned.
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. Women who want to restore a youthful, full look to their breasts often choose to undergo a breast lift with implants. If a patient is satisfied with the size of her breasts, she can choose a lift without implants, too.
As doctors and surgeons become more experienced in their fields, opinions about the best ways to do certain procedures change. In the past, accepted medical wisdom dictated that it was better for all involved to perform a breast lift or mastopexy and a breast augmentation as two separate procedures. Over the course of thousands of surgeries, Miami-based plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau has found that it makes much more sense to perform the procedures together. His findings are backed up by a study published in January 2013 in the journal “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
As you get older, the skin on your neck gets looser. You can also have excess neck skin if you’ve lost a lot of weight. Along with excess skin in the neck area, as you age, the muscles in the area start to weaken and separate. Loose skin, weak muscles and extra fat all combine to produce a look that’s often called “turkey neck,” since it resembles the wattle that turkeys have under their beak.
Some cosmetic procedures such as injections and fillers have a short recovery time. But if you decide to undergo a surgical procedure, you can expect to have a significantly longer recovery time. The exact length of recovery varies from patient to patient. In some cases, it can be just a few days. In others, it can be as long as a few months. Dr. Krau recommends that all patients give their bodies ample time to heal after a surgery for the best results.
You probably wouldn’t bring your imported car to a mechanic who is only experienced in repairing domestic vehicles. Although the mechanic can repair certain types of cars, he or she might have the experience needed to properly fix yours. The same is true when choosing a plastic surgeon. Technically, any doctor can perform plastic surgery. But, only board-certified surgeons, such as Dr. Ary Krau, in Miami, have proven their experience and training.
While plastic surgery can enhance your appearance, it doesn’t stop time or prevent any changes from happening to your body. It also doesn’t keep you from changing your mind further down the road. If you’ve received breast implants in the past, you might be considering a breast revision procedure today. The procedure adjusts the original implants. Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau performs breast revision surgeries for a number of reasons.
You might feel young, but the fine lines by your eyes and the pair of lines between your eyebrows might suggest otherwise.
