Bikini Weather: Is Lipo the answer?

June 7th, 2019

Wayzata Beach

Bikini weather has finally arrived this year in Minneapolis and beach ready body questions soon follow. I have noticed an increase in the interest for liposuction and breast enlargement, as Midwesterners anticipate finally shedding bulky winter clothing for skimpy beachwear. The body-conscience scramble to lose those winter pounds, toning up muscle. Sometimes working out can only get you so far. When fullness on the hips and thighs just doesn’t seem to get better after hitting the gym, there are additional options. Liposuction can effectively remove localized fullness, but isn’t a weight-loss tool. The best results are achieved with patients that are within 10 pounds of their ideal weight.

Women who have had children and men who have lost over 75 pounds often have a belly issue. Stretched skin and muscle usually require a tummy tuck to smooth the abdomen. The scar is strategically placed so that it is covered by most swimsuits, but the surgery requires about a week of recovery before revealing new abs. Seasonally inspired, breast enlargement interest is actually on the rise. It remains the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. More than 300,000 women elected to have breast augmentations last year in the US, with liposuction coming in a close second.

66 Year old Male Facelift: Happy Patient

April 19th, 2019

Dr. Bashioum Surgery

Gregg writes: I am a 66 year old male and had a facelift on 12/26/18. When I was looking into getting some work done I selected several Doctors in the area and had a consult with them. Dr. Bashioum and his team made me feel the most comfortable.I am now about 3.5 months post op. I continue to be very pleased with the work that was done. Everyone on the team makes you feel so comfortable and explains things in great detail and welcomes questions any time. Dr. Bashioum even called me on 12/25/18 in the evening to see if I had any questions prior to surgery. I don’t know of any other doctors that would demonstrate that kind of patient care. After the surgery I was surprised how alert I felt. With other medically required surgeries I did not have that experience. Great thanks to everyone on the team!!

Dr. Bashioum replies, Hi Gregg, You are very kind to take the time to include your comments about your facelift experience with the readers on our Nipntuck.com Blog. We love to hear that you are pleased with your results from surgery 3.5 months ago. I’m always amazed that patients are surprised to receive a personal call from me before and after surgery. I like to think that patients appreciate having their questions answers and a phone call is an easy way to put patients at ease. Surgery and recovery is stressful for most patients and a little reassuring goes a long way to ease the experience by knowing what to expect. I will look forward to seeing you again in a few months, Gregg. I will share your comments with my staff, always the highlight of my week! Thanks again, Dr. Ralph Bashioum
