TUMMY TUCK: Abdominoplasty, often called a “tummy tuck,” is a popular procedure used to flatten and shape the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. Our doctors have been performing tummy tucks with excellent cosmetic results for many years. Patients love the look of their new flat stomachs after surgery under our doctors’ exceptional care!

MOMMY MAKEOVER: After birth, your body may have trouble regaining its original skin elasticity, muscle tone, and slim physique. Diet and exercise can only restore so much of your pre-pregnancy body. The Mommy Makeover at Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, PC is designed to restore youthful contours!

3 Tricks to Keeping Your Summer Body in the Winter

The summer months may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still dreaming of a youthful toned shape. While we may have turned in our swimsuits for winter coats and scarves, it’s never too early to start prepping your figure for the next beach season – after all it is only six months away! Here are three tips and tricks to restoring a more youthful shape, and in-turn, a more positive outlook on your body.

COOLSCULPTING. CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles, and back fat. Say goodbye to rolls and hello to a smooth flat abdomen! Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. Your body will still flush out fat cells for up to six months after treatment! No, it’s not magic. It’s CoolSculpting!

LIPOSUCTION. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body. The fat from the targeted area is removed from the body to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. This procedure may be performed alone, or can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck, to achieve maximum results. Summer bikini here we come!

FACELIFT. Does the face you see in the mirror reflect who you are inside? Facial cosmetic surgery can give your face a more youthful look or improve the shape of features such as the nose, chin or ears. Facelifts counteract signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. After surgery, some patients look 10-15 years younger!

Breast Procedures: What’s the best for me?

Women may decide to undergo cosmetic plastic surgery to enlarge, lift or reduce their breasts. Some undergo surgery to achieve a balance in size or shape for their breasts. Whatever the motivation, breast surgery is safer and recovery is easier now than ever before. If you are unhappy and have lost your self confidence due to breast size and/or shape, take a second to review the list of breast services we have to offer.

BREAST AUGMENTATION: Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. Breast augmentation may give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.

BREAST LIFT: A woman’s breasts may droop as a result of the natural effects of aging, heredity, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss. A breast lift is performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged or lost volume and firmness.

BREAST REDUCTION: Large breasts can cause pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, and low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide relief from these symptoms. This procedure removes fat and tissue and tightens skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION: Breast reconstruction restores a natural, symmetrical appearance, maintains body proportion, and boosts self-confidence for women who have lost one or both breasts to mastectomy or who lack breasts due to a congenital or developmental abnormality. Reconstructive surgeons strive to create a new breast and nipple that resemble the woman’s natural breast as closely as possible in shape, size and position.

We can help you make an informed decision and achieve the most satisfying results. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us today: 631-751-4400.

Breast Augmentation: Restoring Confidence & A Youthful Shape

Have you ever looked into your mirror and longed for a more youthful shape, or dreamed of a different, better-proportioned you? Then you are not alone! In fact, breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. A breast augmentation may give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.

Our patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons, including balancing breast size, compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy, and correcting a congenital breast defect. For this reason, every one of our patients enjoys completely customized treatment designed with her specific goals in mind. Under our doctors’ expert care, patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.

Breast augmentation may achieve dramatic and beautiful results on its own as well as in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery or non-invasive procedures*. We sometimes recommend combining breast augmentation with other procedures such as a breast lift for more satisfying results.

Breast Augmentations: What You Need to Know

Do you lack confidence due to uneven breast sizes? Are you self conscious of the natural size of your breasts? Has your breast mass changed from extreme weight loss and/or pregnancy? All of these questions can be addressed with a breast augmentation procedure, but first let’s take a look at what you might need to know.

No two women are alike, and neither are their bodies or desires. Our patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons. And did you know this procedure is extremely common? In fact, breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, and one of our most popular services here at Suffolk Plastic Surgeons.

So you are considering a breast augmentation and now you might be wondering, what exactly can a breast augmentation give me? The breast augmentation procedure can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast. This procedure is done to better balance breast size, compensate for reduced breast mass after pregnancy, or to correct a congenital breast defect. Ultimately, and under our doctors’ expert care, patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.

How does the procedure typically go? Pre-procedure we will help you decide which kind of implant, saline or silicone, is right for you. Both implant types are very safe, and each offers its own advantages. The breast augmentation procedure typically lasts one to two hours. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places on the breast. The breast is first lifted to create a pocket, and then the implant is inserted. Many patients are able to return to work within the week.

Why Now is the Best Time for a Mommy Makeover

Becoming a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can have. There’s good reason to feel excited and proud of the changes motherhood brings to your body. However, over time, some of those changes can begin to seem more like a burden. Enter the Mommy Makeover! It can be a powerful confidence-booster that gives you just the lift you need this holiday season.

What Exactly is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery solutions designed to reverse or alleviate the effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. You and your doctor will consult to decide on exactly which treatments you’d like to have, but most plans include a combination of CoolSculpting® or liposuction, breast lift, and tummy tuck. Of course, you can always choose to skip or add elements to personalize your own Mommy Makeover.

What Can a Mommy Makeover Fix?

It’s important to be realistic in your goals for a Mommy Makeover. No matter how good your plastic surgeon, you aren’t going to come out looking exactly the way you did before you had children – and no one can truly turn back time. However, the techniques used can make you look and feel more like you used to about your body – and in some cases, even better.

Why is Winter the Best Time for a Mommy Makeover?

There are a number of reasons why winter is considered by many to be the best time to schedule a Mommy Makeover:

  1. 1. Downtime. The shorter, darker, colder days of winter may actually make it easier to handle the need to stay at home and be less active after your procedures.
  2. 2. Cool Weather. Staying cool is actually important to the healing process. In winter, you don’t have to worry about becoming overheated from the necessary bandages and compresses.
  3. 3. Wardrobe. A winter wardrobe makes it easier to hide your healing and the fact that you had any procedures done until you’re fully recovered – and ready to show your new body off.
  4. 4. Less Risk from Sun. Any time you undergo a plastic surgery procedure, keeping the healing skin protected from sun exposure is essential. In the winter, it’s much easier to avoid exposing your surgery sites to ultraviolet rays.
  5. 5. School. With the kids in school, it’s easier to take the time you need for yourself as you recover physically and rebuild your new and enhanced self-esteem.
  6. 6. Time Off. The holidays usually offer a built-in set of days off – and it’s often easier to explain away the extra time off from work that you may need.
  7. 7. No Missing Out. Plan your makeover in winter, and you’ll be ready to go in spring – with no need to bow out of fun outdoor activities. And just wait for swimsuit season!
