Breast Augmentation Prep San Francisco

Published on October 6, 2017 by

Breast Augmentation Prep starts with a consultation with a plastic surgeon. During your consultation the plastic surgeon will ask you about your goals, your concerns, your medical history, and will examine your breasts. During this consultation the plastic surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedures and, if so, start to formulate the best procedure plan for achieving the desired results. During the consultation the patient is also interviewing the plastic surgeon in a sense to find out if they are the best plastic surgeon for them. It is important to find a plastic surgeon who has the training, certification, experience necessary to give you the safest procedure possible, as well as one who understands you aesthetic goals.

Before the procedure, your Breast Augmentation prep may include getting a blood test, you may be asked to adjust any medications you are taking, if you are a smoker you will be asked to stop, and you will be advised to not take any aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs, which can increase bleeding during the procedure. If you are interested in learning more about the breast augmentation prep process and to find out if you may be a good candidate for this procedure, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Anthony today.

Arm Lift San Francisco

Published on September 24, 2017 by

Arm Lift is a procedure that is also known as Brachioplasty and is performed to improve the appearance of the upper arms. Many people struggle with their upper arm appearance and may find that even as the rest of their body responds to their diet and exercise efforts, the upper arms remain stagnant in their progress. Excess, sagging skin in the upper arm causes many people to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable, particularly when warmer weather makes sleeveless shirts most desirable.

The Arm Lift is achieved through an incision that runs on the lower portion of the upper arm between the elbow and the arm pit. It is important to know that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar. The Arm Lift achieves a tighter and smoother upper arm appearance and in some cases may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction or a Body Lit. If you are interested in learning more about the Arm Lift procedure and recovery process and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Anthony today.

Body Lift Procedure Steps San Francisco

Published on September 7, 2017 by

The Body Lift Procedure Steps start with anesthesia that may be administered intravenously or as general anesthesia. The incision in a body lift is commonly made in what is known as a bikini pattern where the abdomen, waist, thighs, buttocks and groin are all tightened and lifted in one fell swoop. The last step, if this is the only procedure being performed at this time (sometimes the body lift is performed in combination with Liposuction if there is stubborn fat in the area as well) is closing the incision through the use of sutures, tapes, or skin adhesives.

Results from a Body Lift procedure are visible almost immediately, though your body will continue to heal and adjust over time.

Abdominoplasty San Francisco

Published on August 27, 2017 by

Abdominoplasty, also called a Tummy Tuck, is a procedure used by both men and women to achieve a more flat, smooth, and toned abdominal region. The mid-section is an area that many people struggle with for one reason or another, particularly after pregnancy or weight loss. Abdominoplasty is performed through an incision that runs horizontally across the lower abdomen from hip to hip–it is important to understand that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar, though it is easily hidden by underwear and swimwear. The Abdominoplasty procedure may be performed in slightly different variations with different amounts of invasive techniques depending on the amount of rejuvenation required to achieve the desired results–for example, a “mini-tummy tuck” may be used with a small incision size to achieve a smaller rejuvenation. Sometimes the abdominoplasty procedure may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction or as part of a more comprehensive rejuvenation for mothers looking to improve the areas of their bodies most affected by having children.

If you are interested in learning more about the abdominoplasty procedure and recovery process, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Anthony today.
