How long after having a baby can a breast/procedure be done? Generally, 3 to 6 months after you have stopped breastfeeding. However, everyone’s body is different and it’s possible you’ll want to wait even longer. Due to hormonal changes it is best to wait up to six months after lactation has stopped before getting any kind of cosmetic surgery done on the breasts. This gives your body time to adjust and allows your breast tissue to "settle" into its final shape. Scar management after the procedure One of the m most significant concerns that patients have is the post [...]

"The time-lapse video shows Volyme, Lyft, and Restylane all being used in various amounts for a full face rejuvenation treatment.

How many times can one do Liposuction in one area?

By |18 December 2020|Categories: procedures|Tags: |

Q & A time on Liposuction There is no limit to how many areas can be treated in one liposuction session. Most sessions tend to include a maximum of three to four areas. However, regardless of the number of areas treated, most plastic surgeons generally limit fat removal to five litres per session for the patient's safety When you gain weight, fat cells increase in size and volume. In turn, liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in a specific area. The amount of fat removed depends on the appearance of the area and the volume of fat. [...]

How much Botox will I need?

By |11 December 2020|Categories: procedures, skin|

Botox by Dr. Deon Weyers Just like we measure tablets in milligrams (mg), we measure Botox in Units (iu) and different facial muscles need different dosages to relax them, resulting in a softening of wrinkles of facial expression The effect is dosage dependent: excessive/ too high dosages will cause complete paralysis of these muscles, leading to a frozen unnatural appearance. Too little Botox again will result in little improvement with no effect at all. The goal is to still have expression but not to have the wrinkles associated with them The cost of the treatment is also determined [...]

More about the ‘Daddy Do-over’ procedure

By |4 September 2020|Categories: procedures|

‘Daddy Do-over’ procedure This week we’re talking about cosmetic procedures for men, a topic that has lost a lot of its stigma and has become more socially acceptable. There is a rise in the popularity of what has become known as the “Daddy Do-over”. Ask any parent and they’ll likely tell you that having children can do a number on your physique.

More about the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure

By |6 August 2020|Categories: procedures|

It’s great to see that more than ever we are celebrating the beauty of the female curve, and none more so than a shapely buttock. The shape and proportion of a person’s buttocks are largely determined by genetics; both your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat influence the appearance of the lower body. A healthy diet and exercise can work to achieve a healthy body weight and tone the muscles, but many patients remain unhappy with a “flat” buttocks that lacks shape, despite a healthy lifestyle. Brazilian Butt Lift surgery can help overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks [...]
