Many people considering breast reduction focus on the immediate, like the surgery itself, and the very long-term impacts, like buying a bikini without worrying about falling out of the top.

The 1 Thing You Must Do for a Healthy Recovery from Abdominoplasty

Although it’s a good idea to prepare before your procedure by doing a little homework, you should also prepare ahead of time for your recovery from abdominoplasty. Tampa patients who spend time and energy focusing on the healing process have an easier, healthier recovery.

Taking It Easy

In our society, there’s a lot of pressure to be constantly doing things and being productive. When something comes up, like recovering from an abdominoplasty, most Tampa locals feel like they should be up and about as soon as possible. The truth is, forcing your body to be active before it’s ready is a really bad idea. Your body needs time to just rest in order to heal properly. Surgery, and especially a fairly involved surgery like a tummy tuck, is a lot for your body to handle. Muscles have been stitched together, skin has been sutured or stapled, and fat has been removed. All of these things take some getting used to, and your body needs time to adapt.

Taking Time

In fact, time is the best healing agent around. Instead of pushing yourself to get better faster, instead try just relaxing and giving your body what it needs: time to rest, time to heal, and a lot of time to catch up on your sleep. By getting enough down time, your body will recover much more quickly than if you force yourself to get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible. Just remember, your body’s been through a lot with this surgery. Give yourself a break, and just get better.

3 Questions to Ask Your Cosmetic Surgeon about Breast Augmentation

Patients considering breast augmentation in Tampa - St. Petersburg should come in to the consultation armed with lots and lots of questions. It is not only important to know what to expect and what the surgeon thinks would be the best options for you, it is necessary to ask questions in order to gauge your comfort level with the physician. Here are just a few questions you'll want to ask during your consultation. Make sure the surgeon provides a detailed and personalized response.

How long will my implants last?

While no implant is guaranteed to last a lifetime, they do not have expiration dates, either. Implants do not need to be replaced unless something goes wrong with them. Your doctor will need to explain all of the factors that can lead to rupture or other problems, as well as make lifestyle suggestions that will extend the life of your implants. Many implants last for 10-20 years without any problems.

What type of implant would you suggest?

A good surgeon will have a goal of making the patient’s entire physique look proportioned, attractive and natural. For patients with very little body fat or breast tissue, the surgeon might suggest having silicone implants rather than saline, since the rippling effect of the salt water in saline implants can be visible from certain angles in very thin patients. If saline implants are preferred, the surgeon may recommend placing the implants under the chest muscles rather than over for improved aesthetics.

What results should I reasonably expect?

This question is the acid test of the surgeon’s honesty. Any cosmetic surgeon that promises a perfect result should be looked at with skepticism. The surgeon’s response should be specifically tailored to your particular characteristics, and offer an honest assessment of what might go wrong along with a detailed review of the many benefits breast enlargement can provide.
