You’ve spent the past 20 years willingly sacrificing many of your needs to raise children. It’s been completely worth it, and you wouldn’t change anything. And even though you’ve kept in shape, you’ve never been able to regain your pre-baby body, and now you feel like it’s time to do something for yourself. Go for it!

When asked if dermal fillers or a facelift are cheaper, you may think the answer is obvious. But when you think about both options over the long term, the picture changes quite a bit.

Have you heard of miraDry? Here in Idaho Falls, it’s one of our favorite options for reducing excessive sweating, but it’s a bit overlooked here at my practice. And although treating your excessive sweating might not be at the forefront of your mind in the winter months, it’s actually a great time to undergo the procedure if you want to feel dry and confident once the warmer months come around. Sweating is a normal function of the human body, and an important one too. Sweat doesn’t just stain your clothes and make your palms moist. It also acts as a … Continue reading
Colder weather not only affects how you dress, but it also affects how you care for your skin. Colder temperatures create drier skin, which dulls your complexion and exacerbates imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles. Increased skin dryness and irritation are due to a few factors, including stronger winds, drier air, and the use of heaters and furnaces (which dry the air and your skin). To keep your skin looking and feeling its best during the fall and winter months, you need the right skincare routine. Here, our Idaho plastic surgery practice offers a few tips: Invest in high-quality, medical-grade … Continue reading
Deciding to have plastic surgery is a deeply personal decision. At my Idaho Falls plastic surgery center, I try to get an understanding of my clients’ needs and wishes to determine why they are choosing to change their appearance. As a surgeon, it’s my job to identify people who are good candidates for plastic surgery and those who are not. And those who are not good candidates usually want plastic surgery for the wrong reasons. And what, you may ask, are the “wrong” reasons? Let’s take a closer look at a few celebrity examples. The Plastic Look Choosing plastic surgery … Continue reading

Pregnancy not only affects your abdomen, but also the rest of your body. The production of breast milk and increased breast size during pregnancy can cause the breasts skin to stretch.

Breast augmentation at our Idaho Falls plastic surgery center can help you achieve beautiful results. However, getting these results also depends on you. Following your surgeon’s post-op care instructions is imperative to ensure a smooth recovery. Below are a few essential healing tips that will assist with your recovery: Do get plenty of rest. Sleep is essential to a healthy immune system and a smooth recovery. Your body works hard to heal after surgery, and when we sleep, the body can dedicate more blood flow to injured tissues.
