At the Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Dr. Jugenburg is an expert at creating minimal Breast Lift scars that are barely visible. While a traditional Breast Lift procedure typically involves the placement of an invertedT-shaped scar (the Standard of Full-Anchor Breast Lift), Dr. Jugenburg’ssurgical expertise allow him to achieve optimal results bylimiting the incisionsto the areola, and if a significant lift is required, the addition of a small vertical incision only. The large incision usually placed within, or directly above, the breast fold (infra-mammary fold) is thereby completely avoided.
Dr. Jugenburg uses advanced wound closure techniques and dissolvable deep sutures to support the repositioned skin and tissue on the breasts and minimize the risk of visible scar stretching. In some patients, permanent Gore-Tex sutures may also be used to provide long-term support. All patients are required to wear a surgical support bra at all times for 6 weeks after surgery, which will lessen tension on the incision lines and prevent scar stretching. Patients are also instructed to sleep on their backs during this time to avoid pressure on the breasts.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Brent Moelleken notes in a RealSelf Q&A that “By nature, surgery causes soreness, and patients are usually restricted from full workouts for a period of time after surgery. This explains the weight gains often noticed immediately afterward.” But it’s important to get back into the habit as soon as you’re able. “Some patients gain a false sense of confidence after their liposuction procedure,” he says. “If anything, patients should plan on being more active and healthier about their eating habits after surgery than they were before.”
The surgeries that risk more significant scarring are the much more common vertical or “lollipop” lift and the inverted T or “anchor” lift, which feature two and three incisions respectively. As they are more invasive surgeries than a crescent lift, you can expect more extensive scarring, but as long as you and your surgeon can provide proper care and observation, these can fade and can be easily hidden while you’re waiting for them to fade.
Most people who consider a nose job don’t want to look like someone else, they just want to look like the best version of themselves. A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, is an outpatient surgery to change the size or shape of your nose. It often addresses the size of your nose in relation to the rest of your face, the width of the bridge, and asymmetry. It can also adjust the appearance of humps or depressions, the shape and position of the tip of your nose, and the size of your nostrils.
