Tighter Tummy After Pregnancy?

Today’s mommy makeover shows a 1 year post op liposuction + tummy tuck + fatgrafting to the butt and hips. Patient: 40 years old, 5’6, 216 lbs. Its never too late to be the best you!

Unfortunately, even for moms who work diligently to shed baby weight, skin stretched by pregnancy (especially multiple pregnancies) doesn’t shrink to fit after the fat is gone. Instead, it remains loose and wrinkly. A tummy tuck does more than remove excess skin. Pregnancy often stretches the abdominal muscles to the point where they separate along the center of the abdomen and cause the belly to protrude (rectus diastasis). During a tummy tuck, we are able to repair the diastasis. See previous post for patient demographics “Beauty Wire”

3 Month Post Op BBL

3 Month Post Op BBL


Procedure: 3 month post op liposuction to the abdomen, flanks and lower back + fatgrafting to the butt and hips. Patient: 32 years old, 154 lbs (patient gained 12 lbs for procedure) 5’8
Before surgery, our patient was a very active person. Find out how she continued to stay active in the gym while maintaining her curves!
I generally recommend that my patients allow 6 weeks recovery after Brazilian Butt Lift before they resume or start a workout regimen. I do not anticipate that exercises that strengthen the gluteal (butt) muscles will diminish results at all. Overall fat loss from a lot of cardio or from weight loss, will reduce the grafted buttocks, but this is proportional. I am asked this question frequently so I like to stress that working out and weight loss after BBL will not cause the grafted fat to shrink any faster than the fat on other parts of the body.

Happy OR Nurse Day!

Happy OR Nurse Day!

While Dr. Curves may be the star of the operating room, without the work of a team of skilled and reliable operating room nurses, the creation of the “j curve” or “mommy makeover” could not take place. Operating room nurses have one of the most demanding nursing jobs, that’s why it can be easily agreed that these lifesavers definitely deserve their own day.

The History of Operating Room Nurse Day

The history of nursing dates back well over 2000 years. The Hippocratic Collection describes skilled care and observation of patients by “attendants” on several different occasions, which were most likely the first real nurses mankind has ever known. During later historical periods, both nuns and monks tended to provide nurse-like care to the sick. Examples of this can be found in the histories of many religions, such as Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam. Archaeologists have also discovered plenty of evidence suggesting humans have been performing various types of surgery for up to 9,000 years, with the earliest Egyptian surgical texts dating back to about 1,500 BC. In 1989, the State Governor of Iowa, Terry Bransted, decided to help reward operating room nurses for all of their (often underappreciated) work and put through an executive order to establish an annual Operating Room Nurse Day.

Nurses in this field provide care and support to patients before, during, and after surgery. These nurses are responsible for maintaining a sterile environment in the operating room, monitoring the patient during surgery, and coordinating care throughout the process. They are also responsible for making sure the OR team provides the patient with the best care possible.


Today, we celebrate our OR nurses, thank you!

“How plastic surgeons are reinvigorating their craft by live streaming operations and ‘gramming before/after results.

Plastic surgery in the mainstream

Cosmetic surgery isn’t the taboo topic it once was, and it also isn’t as expensive as one might imagine. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average breast augmentation surgery costs about $3,700. Thanks to Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj, plump butts are in style, and the average buttock augmentation surgery will set you back about $4,500. Apps and filters re-instated facelifts on the list of the most requested cosmetic procedures in 2016, and they cost about $7,000.

Elective surgeries like these are not typically covered by insurance, so it may seem a bit pricey to pay that much out of pocket for a procedure. But many Americans are just a large gift or work bonus away from the breasts, butt, and face they’ve always wanted.

With such relatively reasonable price tags, everyone from celebrities to the average joe has access to cosmetic procedures, and with that access has come increased visibility. “Plastic surgeon” is among an increasing number of “social media famous” career choices (right up there with model and “influencer”), where posting results and growing a following can lead to some pretty big business—as well as notoriety.

Andrew “Dr. Curves” Jimerson is an example of social media success. The Atlanta-based plastic surgeon has over 200,000 followers on Instagram, which include, like Dr. Miami, everyday people and celebrities alike. Jimerson says that the significance of extending his social media reach is not lost on him. In fact, it’s at the heart of his business. When followers see people like them getting procedures that they’d never heard of, they want to know more.

“I think that my practice has been built on results, and my marketing has been built on social media,” Jimerson says. “So we use social media heavily to inform our patients. Some of our patients have been following us for for years. I think it’s brought a lot of people to plastic surgery … who would not normally have it because they get to see it and they start building trust with our practice and also have confidence in what we’re doing.”

“I think [social media has] made a huge difference, both positive and negative,” Andrew Jimerson (“Dr. Curves”) tells Culture Trip. “It can have a negative effect because sometimes it gives people who are not authorities on the topic a voice. You know, sometimes those people can seem like authorities when they’re actually not.”

As his name suggests, “Dr. Curves” specializes in body enhancements from the neck down. His market in Atlanta, where big butts are both plentiful and desired, is perfect for his clientele.”

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck Improve Quality of Life

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck Improve Quality of Life

Arlington Heights, Ill.

– Patients undergoing cosmetic liposuction and/or abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) procedures report significant improvements in self-esteem and quality of life, according to a study in the April issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Outcomes are especially good with liposuction plus “tummy tuck,” although they include somewhat higher pain scores and longer recovery times. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons)

Combined Procedure Yields Best Results

After a study was conducted with over 360 individuals, patients undergoing abdominoplasty rated their cosmetic outcomes higher than others: average score 9 out of 10, compared to 8 out of 10 with liposuction only. Liposuction plus abdominoplasty produced the highest patient satisfaction rate-over 99 percent-with no increase in pain compared to abdominoplasty alone.

Ninety-eight percent of patients undergoing liposuction plus abdominoplasty said they would undergo the procedure again and 99 percent that they would recommend it to others.

Overall, 86 percent of patients reported an improved sense of self-esteem after surgery. About 70 percent reported improved quality of life, more commonly after liposuction plus abdominoplasty.

Quality of life is an increasingly important focus measure of effectiveness for all types of medical and surgical treatments. Even though liposuction and abdominoplasty are among the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures, few studies have formally evaluated their impact on quality of life and other patient-reported outcomes.

Today’s patient is 1 month post op tummy tuck with liposuction to the abdomen, lower back, back bra roll, flanks, upper back and front bra roll. She is 36 years old, 158 lbs and 5’4. She is ready to feel comfortable in her skin again and flaunt her new body on vacation!
