New Tummy Tuck Before and After Photos

August 8th, 2016

Tummy Tuck After

A frequent topic of conversation is how to find a good cosmetic surgeon. Maybe what patients really want to know is how can they can get the result they want. Perhaps one of the best ways to judge your possible result is to look at un-retouched Before and After photos. We have just updated ours, take a look. Most surgeons develop an “aesthetic style” or a particular way of doing a procedure that reflects how the patient looks after recovery. Keeping in mind that not all patients desire the same look following surgery, Before and After photos are a nice way to see your options. Certainly there are other important criteria to use to find the right cosmetic surgeon for you. Tops on the list is credentials, so look specifically for Board Certification from the American Society for Plastic Surgeons. A quick search here, will tell you if your prospective surgeon is Board Certified by the ASPS.

Last year 127,967 Abdominoplasty surgery or the Tummy Tuck procedure were done, again landing it the TOP 5 most requested cosmetic surgeries. The most common complaint from patients seeking surgery was loss of muscle and skin tone due to pregnancy or weight gain/loss resulting in what is sometimes called muffin top. Often surgery is required to repair these changes when exercise and diet have failed. My patients report great satisfaction after having this tummy nipntuck. It is also one of the common procedures when combined with breast restoration that is referred to as the “Mommy Makeover.” I recommend doing each procedure separately to insure proper healing and minimizing complications that might arise when doing both at the same time. Mommy Makeovers have become more popular in recent years as more women no longer accept the physical changes that are sometimes the residual result from pregnancy.

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.
