In fact, you’re kind of feeling like a warrior woman in an armor of foam & velcro compression garments that would [...]

Eat Raw, Be Beautiful.

So many reasons to eat raw fruits, veggies, and nuts. So, why don’t we all do it more often? It usually comes down to convenience and know how. I don’t want any of you to miss out on the scrumptious vitamins, minerals, fiber, phytochemicals, and antioxidants this natural medicine contains. And a raw smoothie is the perfect post-surgical meal. Cool, easy to digest–you can feel yourself healing from the inside out! I don’t believe in “Food Rules” per se. Life is messy. Pasta is yummy. Dinner with our friends and family also has multiple social and health benefits. But, I have continued to eat at least one raw meal a day for [...]

Six Things a Surgeon Should Do Before You Let Her Touch Your Breasts!

The breast is the first beautiful thing we see. And breast augmentation is one of the most satisfying and exciting procedures I offer. For many women, and transwomen, breast enhancement provides a feeling of completeness and femininity. For some it is a restoration of something lost to surgery, or time, or the beautiful sacrifice of child birth and breast feeding. And for others it is the solution to an asymmetry or deficit present since birth.    What happens during your initial consultation is crucial to achieving satisfaction with your end results! Before choosing your surgeon, consider this checklist and whether she does the following: 1. Lets you [...]

5 Reasons You Need A Tummy Tuck

5 REASONS YOU MAY NEED A TUMMY TUCK The basic tenet of any abdominoplasty (aka tummy tuck) is to achieve a smoother, flatter abdominal contour when liposuction alone is not adequate. This may occur when your body has experienced pregnancy, significant weight loss, or loss of skin elasticity over time. Perhaps more than any other procedure that I do, abdominoplasty requires a combination of techniques customized to my client’s body: 1. Removal of excess skin This is the sine qua non of abdominoplasty ! Imagine that fold of loose skin you’ve been pinching, pulling and hiding under an elastic waist band just gone…forever. No more rippling, wrinkling, rubbing [...]
