CELEBRITIES WHO HAD HAIR TRANSPLANTATION

There are a few men and women who we look up to all over the world because they have done so much in their lives. This is most apparent in the worlds of movies and sports, where these men and women transport us to a place we would not otherwise see. National and foreign sporting icons not only encourage us to support our own countries, but also to celebrate hard work and creativity. Similarly, celebrities on both the big and small screens encourage us to fantasize about worlds that may or may not exist in reality. However, we must note that celebrities, like the rest of us, are human beings who face the same issues we do, like hair loss. However, since their appearance is so important to their popularity, these celebrities will attempt to conceal their baldness as quickly and efficiently as possible. Although many celebrities have sought to keep their hair transplants a secret, some have talked freely about their treatments, and some have even publicized the locations where they were performed.

Almost all celebrities stick to a strict diet and work out daily to preserve their physical appearance. The same diet and exercise, on the other hand, cause hair loss because the body does not receive enough nutrients and there is too much testosterone in the body as a result of the workouts. Furthermore, many hair care items are used, many of which contain harmful chemicals that damage the hair follicles. It’s also important to remember that most celebrities spend the majority of their time under bright lights or in the sun, all of which may permanently harm hair. Actors’ hair may also be colored, blow-dried, straightened, crimped, or twisted for their parts, all of which can be damaging to their locks. Then there’s the fact that they often don’t get enough sleep or rest, both of which are important for maintaining healthy hair. In this blog post, we’ll look at some of the most well-known figures from the entertainment and sports worlds who have undergone hair transplant or regeneration procedures.

  • David Beckham: Beckham, one of the most well-known names in sports and regarded as a football god, also has the additional burden of looking nice because he is married to Victoria, a former Spice Girl. He went for a restoration procedure after noticing that his hair was no longer looking fine.
  • Matthew McConaughey: McConaughey, a recent Academy Award winner, still has the sweet smile and endearing accent, but his hair needed support, and considering his constant exposure, a transplant seemed like the best option.
  • John Travolta: From his signature dance steps in Saturday Night Fever and Grease to serious films like Face Off and Swordfish, Travolta has been around for about as long as anyone can remember. Although his acting has rarely warranted assistance, his hair did, and he received it.  
  • Mel Gibson: Mel Gibson is one of Hollywood’s most well-known actors, and most of us have seen him in films such as What Women Want, The Patriot, Braveheart, and Lethal Weapon. When he began to notice hair loss, he realized that the only way to keep his place in the world of glamour was to get a transplant.
  • Al Pacino: Beginning his career in the late 1960s, Al Pacino rose to fame and fortune as Michael Corleone in the Godfather films. He went on to make a slew of other films, including Scent of a Woman, Donnie Brasco, and Ocean’s Thirteen. Even though he hasn’t admitted it, photographs seem to show that he has had a hair transplant.
  • Elton John: The iconic singer, whose tribute to the late Princess Diana is still remembered, was rapidly losing his hair. Mr. John, on the other hand, looks fantastic thanks to prompt action and a professional hair restoration surgeon.
  • Hugh Laurie: Laurie, who played a dark and pessimistic doctor on House MD, had hair problems as well, which is why he wanted to have a hair restoration procedure performed. 
  • Brendan Fraser: Fraser may have fought mummies and demons on television, but when it came to his hair, he seemed to be losing the fight. In the end, he needed medical treatment to return his hair to its former glory.  
  • Jude Law: Jude Law has received several awards for his acting, and his work in films such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, Road to Perdition, Cold Mountain, and Sherlock Holmes has received widespread praise. A contrast of his before and after pictures shows a significant change in his hairline.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PLASTIC SURGERY

Everyone recognizes that plastic surgery has esthetic advantages. However, even though most people think of the health effects of plastic surgery as a possibility, plastic surgery can also have a variety of health benefits for patients. Patients also opt to undergo cosmetic surgery for the sake of their wellbeing but make esthetic changes when under the knife. Some patients also have different cosmetic procedures conducted at the same time as their functional procedures.

  • The health benefits of rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty can enhance the appearance of the nose, but it can also eliminate obstructions in the nasal cavity that hinder breathing, such as those caused by a deviated septum. Since eliminating these forms of obstructions improves ventilation, it can significantly enhance the patient’s ability to exercise and also enhance the patient’s ability to sleep, as well as the quality of sleep. This is especially true for patients who suffer from narcolepsy. Rhinoplasty primarily for the fixing of breathing obstructions is referred to as functional rhinoplasty.
  • The health benefits of breast surgery: While breast enlargement is more well known, breast reduction can provide relief for back, neck, shoulder, and even head pain caused by large, heavy breasts. Breast reduction also helps many women to participate in more rigorous or in-depth fitness regimens by removing weight and removing excess breast tissue from some workouts. This also encourages women who have exercised and lost the extra weight, which poses health risks, to lose even more weight.
  • The health benefits of gynecomastia treatment surgery: Gynecomastia refers to the enlargement of the male breasts. Although the breasts of men are not normally big enough to cause discomfort like the breasts of women can, the swollen breasts can give a feminizing appearance, cause skin irritation, and harm the self-esteem of the patient. Removing excess breast tissue can reverse these problems and make men feel more comfortable exercising, particularly when not wearing a shirt.
  • The health benefits of excess skin removal: While weight loss has many positive effects on the health of an individual, it may leave excess skin that poses health risks on its own. This excess skin cause folds to the body, particularly to the abdomen. These folds can lead to rashes and infection. The most common excess skin removal procedure is a tummy tuck, but excess skin can be removed from almost anywhere in the body. Excess skin removal surgery will help both patients gain weight loss benefits and reduce damage to their well-being from excess skin.
  • The health benefits of eyelid surgery: Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is typically a cosmetic operation, but upper lid surgery can also be functional in older patients and anyone else who has a sagging or drooping upper lid to the degree that vision is affected.

Plastic surgery and self-esteem

Not all plastic surgery procedures have clear physical health benefits, but both plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures can boost the self-esteem of the patient, which can help both the mental and physical health of the patient. People with high self-esteem are less likely to have eating disorders and other mental health issues, have more reasonable expectations of themselves, and others, are more comfortable to express themselves, and are more likely to build healthy relationships. They are less likely to be in abusive or otherwise unhealthful relationships. Patients with high self-esteem will also be more likely to have a proper fitness routine and make other healthy decisions about their wellbeing.

HAIR CUT AFTER HAIR TRANSPLANTATION IN TURKEY

You must have discussed your hair loss experience with your barber. Also, as your hair loss worsens, your barber can recommend different cuts to give you the best look for the hair you still have. The majority of our patients express disappointment with their barber encounters following hair loss. Fortunately, hair transplantation can help with such issues. When you get your hair back after the hair transplant, you will go back to your old haircut routine. It will look exactly like the haircuts you had before you started losing your hair. We’ve also noticed that our hair transplant patients can’t wait to have their first haircut so they can have a long-term hairstyle. When Can I Get a Haircut After Hair Transplant? is one of the most commonly asked questions about hair transplant procedures.

Assume you’ve recently had a hair transplant. The term “hair transplant aftercare” will be used often. It’s because, to get the best results, you’ll need to be extra cautious for a while and obey the aftercare directions to the letter. So, before getting a haircut, keep in mind that even washing your hair should be done with care. Your scalp will need special care due to the time it takes for grafts to completely settle. The transplanted follicles would be in a comfortable location and seal themselves with the skin after around 10 days. It is preferable to wait until they are fully sealed, and the scalp is free of scabbing, scarring, and redness.

You must wash your hair with your special shampoo for the first month, and you must be careful with your scalp. After the shower, there was no hairdryer, just a towel with gentle motions. If you want to learn more about hair wash, check out our article: What Is the Best Way to Wash Your Hair After a Hair Transplant?  After a while, you’ll notice that the hair you already have before the hair transplant starts to grow, and the normal hair grows at a faster rate than the transplanted hair. You can have a haircut if you don’t like the way your hair looks because of the difference in growth speed, but only for the donor hair, not the transplanted hair. It’s also a good idea to wait at least three weeks before getting a haircut.

After the second month, your transplanted hair will begin to grow, but it will be much thinner than the rest of your hair. They will fall for the last time in a short time. This is known as Shock Hair Loss, and new hair will fall out and grow back with more consistency and thickness, much like baby teeth. The new hair will be impervious to hair loss and will last indefinitely. After you’ve grown back your thick hair following the shock hair loss, you can get a haircut, but only with scissors for a while.

As previously said, the transplanted grafts are extremely fragile at first. Getting a haircut with a shaving machine, even after it’s been sealed and secured, may damage the transplanted hair follicles because it doesn’t function like scissors. Scissors can cut hair from a distance, while a shaving machine must be used close to the skin.

Another popular question asked by many patients after hair transplantation is coloring hair. The answer is: Yes! You need to use certain chemicals to dye your hair and they may harm the skin of your scalp in the first weeks of your hair transplant. It is because after the hair transplant procedure the skin on your scalp will be much more sensitive.

GREEN TEA BEFORE PLASTIC SURGERY

There are several foods and drinks that you may be asked to avoid before your cosmetic surgery, to achieve good healing results and minimize your risk of surgery. Your Nursing team will often give you a list of what you need to avoid taking before a cosmetic procedure. Ask your Plastic Surgeon what foods, drinks, and substances you want to avoid during your appointment, ideally well before your surgery date, so you can prepare. Be sure to let your surgeon know all the medications, supplements, and substances you use daily and which to avoid in the next 10 to 14 days or longer before your operation.

Green tea is one of the favorite drink of people who want to increase their antioxidant levels or improve their wellbeing. It has long been marketed as one of the best teas to improve brain activity, minimize the risk of illness, help you recover from flu, and potentially help you lose weight or reduce bloating. Yet drinking green tea in the days or weeks leading up to your plastic surgery may have a detrimental effect on your healing process or may pose higher risks during your cosmetic operation. Although it’s generally a healthy thing to drink, and you may want to pick it up again after your surgeon gives you the right to do so, after surgery, it might be best to take the green teacups at least 2 weeks before surgery. It could be best to stop drinking green teas before your plastic surgery because:

  • Green teas can potentially interfere with your medicine and anesthesia. Green tea compounds can potentially react with some drugs and can cause problems with your heart rate or blood pressure. It’s important to talk to your Specialist Surgeon about any supplements and medicinal types of foods or beverages that are part of your daily or weekly routine.
  • Green tea can influence the effectiveness of other drugs that you may need when you recover. Green tea, and many other herbal supplements or drinks, may alter the efficacy of certain medications making them more powerful or making them less powerful, depending on your system and the type of supplement or tea.
  • Effect the capacity of your body to recover from surgery. Green tea has many benefits naturally, but when it comes to surgery, it has been shown to slow down the body’s natural blood-clotting capacity. If your ability to clot is compromised, this can increase your risk of complications during your surgery, such as increasing your risk of losing too much blood. Slow blood clotting patterns can also increase your risk of developing complications that can easily extend your recovery and healing time.

Other common foods, nutrients, or supplements to ask your surgeon

  • Vitamin E – because it can cause excessive bleeding
  • Vitamin C – because it can delay the closing of your blood vessels
  • Multivitamins – because they often include high levels of vitamins C and E.
  • Vitamins K and B – typically are also best avoided.
  • Both herbal supplements and herbal drinks should be stopped for the same reasons as the vitamins mentioned above.
  • Stimulants such as caffeine should be reduced or stopped entirely (ask your Surgeon)
  • Other substances such as alcohol, aspartame, and MSG should be avoided before a procedure.
  • Fat reduction/fat burning vitamins, detox drugs, and weight loss/diet pills should certainly be avoided for at least 2 weeks before surgery, sometimes longer (ask your Surgeon if you are taking prescription or over-the-counter herbal diet pills of any kind).
  • Fish oil capsules or dishes that are very high in Omega 3 and are normally beneficial to your health can increase your risk of bleeding more than you would otherwise during surgery.

HOW LONG BBL IS LAST?

BBL is gaining global popularity among women, especially in the last decade. Although the Brazilian Butt Lift has not had a long history of breast enlargement, according to the ISAPS, it is one of the top 10 most effective plastic surgery procedures in the world. Of course, people have hundreds of questions about BBL, but one of the most outstanding is does BBL last forever? Before answering this question, as we normally do, let’s look at the basics of BBL first. Some of you call BBL “fat transfer to buttocks,” which is a good description.

BBL is a form of plastic surgery to improve the fullness and overall shape of the buttocks. The most important thing to remember about the Brazilian Buttock Lift is that your fat is using to make your bums look better. Most of us have unwanted fat accumulated in various parts of our bodies, usually in the lower back and abdomen. That is why BBL is often referring to as the movement of fat from the stomach to the buttocks. During your BBL surgery, this unwanted and unnecessary fat is extracted by liposuction and then inserted into your buttocks. Unlike, butt lift with implants, BBL uses your natural fat.

Will all of the fat stay and how long will it last?

Not all the fat injected will survive, to begin with. This is a reality regardless of the success of your BBL operation or the expertise of your surgeon. It is because of the nature of the BBL surgery. Research shows that the fat survival rate in BBL ranges from 40% to 80%. If a plastic surgeon promises a 100% fat survival rate, you need to leave their clinic ASAP because they are not being honest with you. You will begin to see the final outcome of your BBL 3 to 6 months after your surgery. So, the fat that survives 3-6 months after your BBL is going to be permanent. Plastic surgeons who are trained in BBL claim that “survived fat” can behave the same as fat in other parts of your body and stay in your body as long as you maintain your weight.

Also, post-op care plays a key role in determining the success of BBL. The newly injected fat would be “vulnerable” to some sort of pressure for a while. You would then be told to “do and don’t” after your BBL surgery, such as wearing a corset and not lying on your back. Unfortunately, some patients lose weight during this process because some very basic steps have not been taken. A patient needs to stop sleeping on his back so as not to place pressure on the newly injected fat. Heavy exercises also should be stopped for 3 months after surgery. Heavy exercise would eventually result in a loss of fat injected.

On the other hand, as with all other body contouring plastic surgery operations, you will need to control your weight in BBL too. Otherwise, the form of your body will eventually change. To be able to do this, you need a balanced lifestyle with healthy food and daily exercise. Being a non-smoker also has a positive effect on your BBL result. This is another great advantage of BBL, which certainly helps you to have a healthy life! So as long as you take the right steps, beginning with finding the highest quality BBL treatment followed by some basic post-op care, you’ll have a bum that you love forever.

HOW IMPORTANT TO ADD LIPOSUCTION TO YOUR TUMMY TUCK?

You may be wondering if combining tummy tuck with liposuction might be right for you while preparing the specifics of your tummy tuck. Although this is one of the most common combination treatments, not all tummy tucks have to come with liposuction. However, there are a range of advantages to this body contouring combination that you can explore with your plastic surgeon to help you determine if your tummy tuck is best suited to liposuction.

  • At the same time, answer two different issues

A tummy tuck removes fat or loose skin in the abdominal region on its own. Weight loss, pregnancy, aging, and other factors can all lead to excess skin in this region, making abdominoplasty a common option for men and women of varying ages. Liposuction eliminates persistent fat deposits that do not react to diet and exercise on their own. Many people who suggest a tummy tuck often have small patches of exercise-resistant fat that annoy them. By combining a tummy tuck with liposuction, you can address both of these cosmetic concerns at the same time.

  • You will have only once recovery period

After a combination treatment such as a liposuction and tummy tuck, you would just need to prepare for one recovery time. Most people can go back to work and other everyday activities around two weeks after a tummy tuck with liposuction. If you were to divide these operations into two different surgeries, you would have two recovery periods—one after each operation. 

  • Avoid a second surgery

If you have a tummy tuck right now and decide that you want liposuction later, that’s doable. However, there are certain disadvantages to liposuction if you know you would want it right now. Next, the average cost would be lower if you combine abdominoplasty and liposuction. You can pay only one anesthesia charge, operating room cost, and other related costs, compared to paying twice for two different procedures. Also, remember the additional time off work for two recoveries, the cost of childcare, and other secondary costs that you may incur in two procedures rather than one. If you are worried about the upfront expense of a combination operation, explore the funding and payment plans at your plastic surgery appointment.

  • Improve your body contouring results 

Finally, consider your wish list and priorities for your current procedure. Ask yourself if you’re going to be happy with the outcome of a tummy tuck on your own, or if you’d rather fix stubborn fat at the same time. In the end, you are likely to see more detailed outcomes with a combined body contouring technique. But this is a decision that is completely up to you and will depend on your particular needs and objectives. If you’re still on the fence about your choice, schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to help you assess your choices and determine if a tummy tuck and liposuction combination is right for you.

SCARS OF GASTRIC SLEEVE OPERATION

If you want to lose weight and look fantastic, we suggest that you consider gastric sleeve surgery. This restrictive weight loss technique reduces the number of calories you can eat in a single sitting to help long-lasting weight loss. The gastric sleeve is also one of the most common bariatric surgery choices at MayClinik. A variety of people have asked us about scarring after surgery on the gastric sleeve. Let’s take a look at how the operation is done. We can then provide recommendations on what can be done to minimize post-operative scarring.

Where Are Surgical Incisions Placed?

During the gastric sleeve, the extent and location of the scars depend on the type of operation performed.

  • Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve: The most common type of gastric sleeve surgery, a laparoscopic operation, means that three to five small incisions are made along the upper abdomen. Thanks to these small incisions, small surgical instruments may be used to reduce the size of the stomach.
  • Single-Incision Gastric Sleeve: Single-incision gastric sleeves are procedures that require a single incision on the belly button. These forms of surgery are much more uncommon than the multi-incision technique.

Are the Post-Surgical Scars Visible?

In the case of conventional laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery, tiny scars are slightly noticeable, but they disappear dramatically with time. They’re going to be hard to detect as they fade. For single-incision gastric sleeves, the scar is completely concealed within the belly button. This makes surgical scarring nearly undetectable.

How Long Does It Take for Scars to Fade?

As in most surgical healing, scars typically begin to disappear after surgery within a few months. More noticeable fading will take place as the years go by.

Follow Post-Op Instructions Carefully

To avoid unnecessary scarring, patients must follow all follow-up care instructions closely. The MayClinik team will provide detailed instructions on hygiene, sun exposure, diet, and physical activity. They can prevent significant complications and help ensure that the incisions heal and begin to fade earlier rather than later.

  • Keep the Surgical Area Clean: Proper cleaning following surgery helps to avoid infection. Be sure to change the surgical dressings as instructed and follow the bathing and showering instructions in the first weeks after surgery.
  • Avoid Smoking: Smoking slows down the healing process, making infections more likely. Consider bariatric surgery a good reason for dumping the habit for good. It’s a good new beginning to make you happier.
  • Stay Hydrated: Dry skin can cause scarring and worse skin damage. That’s why staying hydrated is so critical. Drink water between meals and avoid caffeine, alcohol, and other dehydrating drugs.
  • Moisturize After Showers: In terms of hydration, it’s a good idea to moisturize after showers and baths. This will help you keep your skin supple and smooth and help combat scarring as well as signs of advanced age.
  • Avoid Sun Exposure: UV rays of the sun can damage the skin, leading to noticeable scars and other defects. To avoid these complications, make sure to use sunblock while you’re outside.

REDUCING BACK PAIN WITH BARIATRIC SURGERY

It may come as no surprise that excess weight can affect your health in a variety of ways, but those who have chronic back pain may be shocked to discover that excess weight may be a cause of back pain. Those suffering from back pain and struggling to maintain a healthy weight can benefit from bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery can help with weight loss when diet and exercise alone are not enough. To learn more about bariatric surgery and reduced back pain, schedule a consultation with a MayClinik surgeon.

How Does Weight Impact Back Pain?

In general, people who are overweight are at higher risk of developing back pain as well as muscle strain and joint pain than those who maintain a healthy weight. Obesity may cause the spine to tip forward, adding tension to the back, as the body is attempting to compensate for holding an extra weight in the torso. In certain cases, this can cause the spine to bend, further aggravating back pain. Lower back pain is of special concern to those who bear excess weight in the stomach as this extra weight causes the pelvis to push forward, which in turn strains the lower back. Carrying extra weight can also make it difficult to exercise, eventually weakening the back muscles due to lack of use.

Conditions Related to Obesity 

Many that are extremely overweight can develop some back issues due to excess weight, or the pre-existing back conditions may worsen. Back pain conditions caused or aggravated by obesity include:

  • Sciatica: Sciatica is a condition in which the pressure on the sciatic nerve induces radiating pain from the lower back to the legs.
  • Hernia: The hernia describes the disorder in which the rubber disk between the spinal bones moves forward, sometimes resulting in back pain.
  • Pinched nerves: One or more nerves in the back may be pinched because of a hernia or simply because of the pressure of extra weight.
  • Bulging disc: The bulging disk is identical to the hernia, except that the disk between the spinal bones does not bulge out equally.
  • Arthritis of the spine: Carrying extra weight may make arthritis of the spine worse because of the pressure of obesity on the joints in the body.

Bariatric Surgery and Reduced Back Pain 

Back pain caused or worsened by obesity can be minimized by weight loss. Unfortunately, some people are unable to maintain a healthy weight by diet and exercise and, in some cases, back pain may be too extreme to exercise. In such circumstances, bariatric surgery may provide a solution. There are various forms of bariatric surgery, all of which aid with weight loss by restricting the amount of food the stomach can carry, physically limiting the number of calories that can be consumed and reducing the intake of calories by reducing the length of the digestive tract. The different types of bariatric surgery include Gastric Balloon, Gastric Sleeve, or Gastric Bypass.

RECOVERY OF PLASTİC SURGERY AND RİCE THERAPY

Before getting into the generic recovery rules, I provide the following disclaimer: Each procedure has unique post-operative instructions, and your plastic surgeon will give you post-operative instructions combined with the particular procedures they use during your operation. Based on our experience, we plastic surgeons shape how we do every procedure for and patient. I will try to provide some general guidelines. It goes without saying, but I’m going to say it: If you choose an Experienced Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon because you trust them and you like the results they achieve, the best course of action is to do things their way.

RICE therapy:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

Rest:  It helps prevent increased swelling and further damage by avoiding physical exercise, heavy lifting, and sudden movement. Immediately after surgery, rest prevents elevated blood pressure and post-operative bleeding. Movement is nice in the weeks following surgery, but relaxation helps you to recover with improved comfort and a more predictable result.

Ice: Ice therapy, particularly for the first few postoperative days, is successful, and if it feels good, it can be continued. I recommend using it for 15 minutes and then leaving it off for 45 minutes. To avoid frostbite, always hold a thin cloth between you and the cold.

Compression: Compression garments for many procedures are very important for controlling swelling and keeping the skin smooth. The skin loses support as well as stuffing after processes such as liposuction, so the garment is essential for keeping the skin flat and smooth. It should be worn 24/7 for the first two weeks.

Elevation: Elevation helps the surgical site drain. This is simple throughout the day, as your face and body are elevated. Lying flat at night can lead to some increased swelling; sleep, however, is very important. If you can sleep with the operated body part elevated for a few days, it helps.

RICE therapy is based upon common sense, and it is a proven treatment. Although it offers an informed basis for evaluating procedures, it should be approved by your surgeon before beginning any new therapy. Your physician has the most knowledge about your operation and has the most experience. During your initial consultation session, it is a good idea to address recovery, because although the surgery will be elective, the recovery becomes obligatory after the operation is performed.

POPULAR SURGERIES FOR YOUR 50S AND BEYOND

When it comes to the best cosmetic surgery choices over50, the emphasis is mostly on lifting and tightening loose skin and fixing wrinkles. Multiple areas of the body can benefit from the removal of sagging skin, such as eyelids or abdomen, via a tummy tuck procedure. So, here are some guidelines for the best plastic surgery choices for those over the age of 50. 

  • Facelifts: Facelifts are popular among men and women over the age of 50. Fine lines and wrinkles are perhaps the first symptoms of aging that we begin to note. Our skin loses its elasticity and volume as the fibers break down and we are left with loose, sagging skin that can be helped by a facelift operation. Some people are genetically predisposed to early aging and want to get a facelift as early as their 40s, while others prefer to wait until after 65 when sagging skin and wrinkles are generally more apparent.
  • Eyelid Operation: The natural effects of aging will take their toll on our faces and make us look old and tired. Eyelid surgery is another of the top choices for plastic surgery for people over the age of 50 as it can assist with certain beauty problems such as wrinkles, puffiness, and drooping skin. As we age, the skin of the upper eyelid starts to drop naturally, although some people experience extreme loss of elasticity in their eyes. Just how much elasticity your skin will lose as you age will depend largely on your genetics and lifestyle habits. Eating well, drinking plenty of water, not smoking, and keeping out of the sun as much as possible would help keep your skin looking the best, but eyelid surgery will help you rejuvenate your beauty with visible results.
  • Breast Augmentation with Uplift: If you are dissatisfied with the size or weight of your breasts, it may be worth considering getting breast augmentation surgery. Gravity, weight fluctuations, and child-rearing can influence the size and position of the breasts of a woman. If you want to enlarge your breast size by breast augmentation or minimize breast reduction, it can be helpful to add a breast lift. This is because the insertion of breast implants or the removal of fat and/or tissue from the breasts would not improve any sagging or positioning problems of the breasts. Including a breast lift along with breast augmentation can be a great way to restore the look of your breasts.
  • Tummy Tuck: The abdominal region is a common trouble zone for men and particularly women over the age of 50. Abdominal skin and surrounding muscles stretch during pregnancy as well as weight gain or loss and can result in stretched skin as well as damaged or separated stomach muscles after childbirth. During a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, excess fat and skin around the stomach area are handled as the abdominal muscles are tightened and healed. For best performance, many surgeons use a combination of skin tightening, liposuction, and muscle tightening.
