Body Image and Self-Confidence: Breasts

November 10th, 2016

Dr. Bashioum w TV crew

Is it true that how you feel about your body image affects your self-confidence? During my practice as a cosmetic surgeon for over 30 years, I have found that many patients report they have a renewed level of self-confidence after their recovery from cosmetic surgery. Perhaps the perception of feeling that a physical change reflected in body image contributes to feeling better about yourself. This change may contribute to a boost in self-confidence. Certainly this has been the case with Lisa. She graciously shared her story and insights with “Twin Cities Live” awhile ago, but this same scenario happens every week with patients in my office following surgery. My staff and I always appreciate hearing stories like Lisa’s. Sometimes a subtle change can even make a difference, particularly for women experiencing physical changes to their body following pregnancy. Often these changes cannot be fixed through diet or exercise, but elective cosmetic surgery can be the answer. Collectively these surgeries have been referred to as Mommy Makeovers. Breast restoration after pregnancy is one particular surgery that is quite effective in restoring a woman’s figure to eliminate breast sagging and/or loss of fullness. Watch Lisa’s story on our Nipntuck YouTube channel in this video.

Thank you again to Lisa for allowing the “Twin Cities Live” cameras to document her story.

Mommy Makeover: Breast Restoration

June 16th, 2016

Dr. Bashioum on set of Twin Cities Live

Lisa graciously shared her own personal experience about considering and deciding to have breast enlargement restoration surgery after pregnancy. Her story is typical of patients we see that are unhappy with physical changes that may occur following pregnancy and nursing. Restoring breasts after these changes is possible and it is often part of the “Mommy Makeover.” We wish to thank Lisa for allowing the Twin Cities Live cameras to document her journey.

Watch our patient’s story of surgery, recovery, and her final result revealed on this television segment. *Note- To watch Christina’s “Mommy Makeover: Tummy Tuck” segment mentioned at the beginning of the video clip, click here.
