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

December 1st, 2014

Twin Cities Live filming Dr. Bashioum for Mommy Make-over episode.

In case you missed the live episode for our #MommyMakeover series, here is another segment for  Twin Cities Live on KSTP-TV. Brooke 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. It is possible to restore breasts after these changes and it is often part of the “Mommy Makeover.” We thank Brooke for allowing the Twin Cities Live cameras to document her journey.  Please  click here to watch  our patient’s story of surgery, recovery, as we reveal her final result on  TCL.
