Let's bust these plastic surgery recovery myths and unveil the truth behind the bandages 😉

💚 While rest should be your priority the first few days after surgery, it's important to keep your body moving for the rest of the recovery period with gentle movements, like walking, to speed up the process and reduce pain.

💚 The final results of your plastic surgery procedure can take up to one year to be fully visible. Be patient and trust the process!

💚 Your plastic surgeon and their medical staff will be readily available during your recovery to answer any questions and monitor your healing.

What questions do you have about plastic surgery?

How do you prioritize your health?

For this patient, less was more 💚

I performed a modest breast reduction, achieving a beautiful lift and correcting her volume asymmetry.

What do you think of these results?

"Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you. Everyone has scars—whether you can see them or not. Wear yours with pride." 💛

Cancer Survivor Month is an annual event that is very close to my heart. I am forever in awe of those who fought cancer and emerged as winners.

At Hess Plastic Surgery, we are proud to support survivors who have undergone a mastectomy, offering them breast reconstruction procedures. These procedures can restore the natural appearance of a patient's breasts and help them regain their confidence!

Generally, there are 3️⃣main breast reconstruction options:

💛 Breast implant, where a saline or silicone implant is used to mold a new breast shape.

💛 Tissue flap, where your own skin, fat, and muscle are used to reconstruct the breast through techniques such as the latissimus dorsi or TRAM flap procedure.

💛 A combination of breast implant and tissue flap.

📞 Call our practice to learn about your options!

A surgical term a day keeps the doubts away 👨‍⚕️📚

A TRAM (Transverse Re**us Abdominis Myocutaneous) Flap is a great reconstructive option that can help restore not only the physical appearance, but also the confidence and well-being of many patients after a mastectomy.

How much filler is too much? 🤔

Fillers can be used to increase volume in key areas of the face, providing a refreshed & rejuvenated appearance! Some of these injection areas include:

💚 Lips
💚 Cheeks
💚 Forehead lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds
💚 Chin or nose, to reshape.

Read Dr. Hess's response on how he approaches dermal filler injections.

Results like these make our 💚 stop 🤩

This lovely patient received a tummy tuck and liposuction of the abdomen and flanks to reach her body goals.

More specifically, I used a Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) technique, which uses an oscillating cannula to reduce fat quickly and with less trauma than other liposuction options.

What do you think of these results?

Have you heard these myths about breast augmentation? I'm here to set the record straight 🤓

💚 FDA-approved implants come with a 10-20 year warranty; however, there is no medical need to replace them after that time. Continue monitoring your breast health just as you would without implants, and consider the FDA's recommendation for an MRI or ultrasound every few years to check for any issues if you choose silicone implants.

💚 Most women find recovery very manageable. At Hess Plastic Surgery, we use the Rapid Recovery Program to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.

💚 The look and feel of your breast implants depend on your aesthetic goals. Advanced technology offers very natural-looking implants to help you achieve the look you are going for.

Would you consider breast augmentation?

🥁 Drumroll, please... it's time to reveal these fantastic results! 🤩

This lovely patient trusted Hess Plastic Surgery for her breast augmentation, and the results are breathtaking.

Her breasts have been enhanced from an A cup to a C/D cup using saline implants and were placed through an inframammary incision to be easily concealed within the natural breast crease.

Did you know that excessive alcohol consumption can have a major impact on your body? 🤔

But don't worry, you don't have to give up happy hour altogether - moderation is key! 😉🍹

Over time, drinking too much alcohol can lead to serious health problems, such as:

🍺 Weakening the immune system
🍺 Learning and memory problems
🍺 High blood pressure
🍺 Serious digestive issues and gut disruption

It is recommended that adults should drink in moderation, with a limit of 2 drinks or less for men and 1 drink or less for women per day.

Let's all strive to make healthier choices for our bodies! 🙌

Did you know that there are different incision placement options for breast augmentation? 🤔

No matter which placement you choose, incisions are placed as inconspicuously as possible and are often concealed within your natural body contours 👨‍⚕️
