What’s the Recovery Time for a Tummy Tuck?

Many women seeking to get rid of loose, sagging skin following a significant weight loss or pregnancy consider a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat to improve the appearance of your abdomen.

Recovery requires consideration and planning for all aspects of the healing process. While this process can be slow, it is manageable. Recuperation from a tummy tuck is on average 6-8 weeks but […]

If your plastic surgeon won’t show you before-and-after pictures of previous patients, or says they don’t have any, that’s a huge red flag — and one that should make you seriously consider looking elsewhere.

Natural.

Looking younger is a given, but of all the results people want from a facelift, it’s ones that are natural. As we age, the skin grows lax and loose. This is a normal part of the aging process, and, ofcourse, part of the problem that can be corrected with a facelift.

As a female surgeon, and also a mommy myself, I can relate to the changes that have […]

Three questions to ask yourself when considering a facelift | Lawton MD

Our faces provide our first impression to others — and they often can tell a story without a single word.

And those changes aren’t always positive. Fortunately, they don’t have to be permanent, either. A facelift from Dr. Tenley Lawton can ease your most visible signs of aging by tightening muscles, removing excess […]

How a Mommy Makeover gives mothers more confidence

After women give birth, they fall in love with their child — but all too often, they fall out of love with their own appearance. After all, pregnancy has a significant impact on many different areas of a woman’s body, and frequently those areas stop responding to traditional weight-loss methods.

Is Botox right for you? | Lawton MD

Patients with “dynamic wrinkles” — those that are caused by smiling, laughing, frowning and other facial movements — often choose Botox® injections to improve their appearance.

The same can be true for makeup and even body trends. Curvy bodies were admired in the ‘20s, while the ‘50s and their cinched dresses emphasized tiny waists. The model […]

Should I Get Chin Augmentation with My Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures nowadays. Unfortunately, it cannot solve all facial imbalance problems. A smaller, or “weak,” chin can often make the nose appear larger than it really is – an issue a rhinoplasty alone cannot compensate for.
That’s why many people opt to have chin augmentation at the same time as their rhinoplasty. This results in a more balanced face and stronger profile. There are two types […]

Liposuction can be an excellent option for patients who have difficulties firming up a trouble spot, such as inner thighs or arms or the lower stomach after having a baby. The removal of excess fatty deposits can create a more sculpted, contoured look that emphasizes your curves or muscles.

Recovering from a tummy tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can be very helpful for women with abdominal muscles and skin that can’t regain their elasticity after pregnancy. But because those patients are busy moms, many worry about how long the recovery will take afterward.

Because a tummy tuck is one of our more involved procedures, recovery time is a bit longer than a more basic surgery. Your muscles need time to heal and re-form, and you simply need time […]

Will I need to have my breast implants redone?

There are a lot of misconceptions out there regarding breast augmentation (see our “Breast implants: questions and answers”), but one that often makes women very hesitant is the notion they’ll have to have surgery every few years to replace implants.

For the vast majority of patients, that’s simply not true. When breast augmentation is performed correctly, implants should last 10 to 20 years with no complications, depending on a patient’s body and lifestyle.

Can liposuction work for you?

Sometimes, specific areas of the body just don’t respond to traditional weight-loss and toning methods. This can be frustrating, particularly for people who have dedicated a lot of time and effort to improving their appearance, but aren’t seeing the results they want.

Fortunately, liposuction is an option for many of these patients. Suction-assisted lipectomy (the “official” name of the procedure), which is used to remove unwanted localized fat deposits, […]
