What Are the Different Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures?

Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, is one of Dr. Ary Krau’s favorite procedures to perform. In our Miami practice, he uses computer imaging software to help patients get the ideal results. The type of procedure that he performs on a patient depends on the desired end results. Some procedures, such as an open rhinoplasty, are better suited for more complicated changes, while others, such as tip-plasty, are ideal if a patient is only concerned about a certain area of the nose.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Breast Lift Surgery?

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.

Is ADM a Good Option for Implant Revision Patients?

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.) ADM has been used for years in post-mastectomy reconstructive breast surgery patients to help heal tissue damage and strengthen and stabilize weak or thinned tissues. Based on the excellent results achieved in those patients, cosmetic surgeons have recently begun using the meshlike material in implant revision surgery to achieve more aesthetically pleasing, longer-lasting results in patients experiencing post-implant issues including:

ADM Makes Breast Implants Possible Even for Those with Thin or Damaged Tissue

Multiple studies have shown that breast augmentation not only helps how a woman feels about her appearance, but also increases self-esteem and self-confidence in her life overall. But while breast augmentation is a viable option for many women, those with thin skin or weak underlying tissue may not be good candidates for the procedure. When tissues are thin or weak, they may be unable to support the weight of the implants, causing them to sag prematurely and leaving women with a less than desirable result.

Do Breast Implants Need to Be Replaced Eventually?

Nothing is made to last forever, including breast implants. In the past, health officials and surgeons recommended replacing implants after 10 years, as it was found that older silicone implants tended to leak after a decade. But, advancements in technology mean that silicone implants are less likely to leak or rupture and can last a patient much longer than 10 years.

Ruptures aren’t the only reason why a woman would want to undergo a breast revision, though. Changes to the body due to aging, lifestyle habits and pregnancy can mean that a set of implants no longer fit a woman. A woman might also change her mind and want a set of implants that are smaller or larger.

Mommy Makeovers – When to Take the Plunge

If you’ve been reading the news at all in the past month, you’ve probably heard about the media firestorm that was kicked up following the royal birth, when at least one British newspaper began wondering – in print – about when new mommy Kate Middelton would start to get back into pre-pregnancy shape. No sooner had the report hit the newsstands than readers took to the Internet to loudly voice their outrage over the unrealistic expectations that the article appeared to foster.

What Are The Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Although breast augmentation procedures have been the most commonly performed plastic surgery since 2006, not every woman wants to have larger breasts. Breasts that are too large for the body can cause physical pain and discomfort. They can also make it difficult for a woman to perform daily activities or exercise. Some women have self-image issues as a result of disproportionately large breasts. In Miami, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ary Krau performs breast reduction procedures to reduce the size of the breast while maintaining a natural shape.

Get Rid of Turkey Neck with a Neck Lift

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.

Take Care of Yourself After Surgery

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.
