5 Responses To Plastic Surgery Shaming

5 Responses To Plastic Surgery Shaming

Dealing with shaming from others is, unfortunately, sometimes a result of getting plastic surgery. You are, of course, under no obligation to respond to them or engage with their trolling. However, if you do feel the need to stick up for yourself, your body, and your choices, here are some tips to help you out.

My Body, My Choices

My Body, My Choices
Much of the shaming women experience when they decide plastic surgery is right for them is because other people feel like they have some sort of say when it comes to your body. Don’t be afraid to remind them that this is your body and you can do what you want with it. Other people do not own it, nor do they have the right to make comments about it.

I’m Not Doing This For Anyone But Myself

I’m Not Doing This For Anyone But Myself
Some folks may comment that the choice to get plastic surgery must “be for a man” or something along those lines. For this sort of shaming, feel free to tell them, as in point one, that this is for yourself alone. The choice is not to please a man or make anyone like you, it’s because you decided it’s what’s best for your own body.

This Was Not An Impulse Buy

This Was Not An Impulse Buy
As you are likely well aware, the choice to get plastic surgery involves plenty of research and long days spent thinking about what is right for you. It’s not like rushing into Target and going on a shopping spree. Anyone who feels like shaming you with the phrase "you’re just doing it without thinking about it” clearly has not done their own research into how plastic surgery works and the process of deciding on doctors, procedures, risks, and rewards.

Yes, I Considered This Important Enough To Save Up For

I Considered This Important Enough To Save Up For
Sometimes people may disguise their shaming with phrases along the lines of “well how could you afford that!?” or “aren’t there better things to spend your hard-earned money on?” This might be a perfect time to ask such people if they’ve ever saved up for anything they considered important, like a new car or a fancy tech gadget. If something is important to you, it’s perfectly reasonable to find ways to pay for it.

This Body Is Just As “Real” As Any Other

This Body Is Just As “Real” As Any Other
People have a bad habit of shaming plastic surgery by calling it “fake” and anything else “real.” But that means everything from pushup bras, makeup, and hair curlers to tanning and Spanx can also be called “fake.” This is an arbitrary line to draw. Rather, you body is still as “real” as you say it is, and it is your choice how to frame whatever you decide to do with it.

Mommy Makeovers - Dallas, Fort Worth, Southlake

You love your kids, right? We are guessing that you feel less affectionate about the effects of pregnancy on your body… mommy makeovers in Dallas / Fort Worth are popular procedures that address the areas most commonly affected by pregnancy—namely your breasts and tummy. In one procedure, you can restore breast fullness and perkiness, a flatter tummy and a smaller waist.

LIPOSUCTION FOR MOMS

Most moms find it harder and harder to keep the waistline they want. Hormonal changes and genetics can make your body store fat in areas you’d rather not. How do you know if liposuction is a good option for you? If you are looking for a slimmer waistline, less “muffin top” in jeans, a flatter tummy, an inner thigh gap and skinnier thighs, read on. Liposuction may be a good option for you if you have these goals and you fit the following criteria:

Hard to lose extra fat in some areas, while being within 5-10 pounds of your goal weight.

  • Liposuction is a great tool for sculpting and reshaping your body. Its pretty amazing how removing a relatively small amount of hip fat can make clothes fit better and your butt look smaller and rounder. You can get even better waistline contouring when Dr. Vennemeyer performs 360 Lipo around your entire core, improving your tummy, hips, flanks, and lower back creases/rolls.
  • So many patients are asking for thigh liposuction to get a “thigh gap,” or space between their inner thighs. Dr. Vennemeyer loves applying his 360 Lipo approach to thighs, making them smaller all the way around. This can create pretty dramatic results.

Stable weight

  • Liposuction is not a good option if you are actively gaining or losing weight. Ideally your weight should be relatively stable for at least several months prior to lipo. If you are gaining weight and not able to maintain your current weight, you may gain weight in other areas after liposuction.

Relatively tight skin

  • Liposuction does not tighten skin, but it can help redistribute skin a bit. If your skin is tight enough, it will retract after fat is removed with liposuction. This process takes weeks to months. A lot of stretch marks is usually a sign that the skin will not tighten on its own. Liposuction is often combined with skin tightening procedures, like tummy tucks or thigh lifts, for moms who can benefit from liposuction but need help tightening the skin.

PREGNANCY AFTER A MOMMY MAKEOVER?

What happens if you get pregnant AFTER a mommy makeover? So, let’s say you decide that you’re finished having kids. You have a mommy makeover to fix what having children did to your body, including a breast augmentation and tummy tuck with 360 Lipo. You’re busy enjoying your new body, then whoops! You are shocked to find out you are pregnant. Here are the things you should know:

  1. The mommy makeover will not do anything to harm you or baby, if you become pregnant after the procedure.
  2. Your tummy can still stretch enough to allow the baby to grow; however, you may be left with new tummy bulging after you give birth.
  3. Most women can still breastfeed after breast implants and the milk is safe for your baby.
  4. Revisions procedures are possible if necessary. Tummies can be re-tightened and breasts can be lifted or re-lifted.

Despite the fact that you can have children after a mommy makeover, I do not recommend it. You will get and maintain the best result possible having your mommy makeover after you no longer plan to become pregnant. Patients feel a lot better about their bodies in and out of their clothes after breast and body plastic surgery. Studies show plastic surgery can enhance your sex life due to that enhanced confidence. It stands to reason that you should consider a reliable method of birth control after mommy makeover if you are enjoying these benefits, while wanting to avoid any more little ones…

Do scars fade after a breast lift or tummy tuck?

Scars tend to appear pretty red soon after a breast lift or tummy tuck. Fortunately, most mommy makeover scars fade significantly with time. The process can take 1-2 years for maximal fading. Products like silicone scar strips and topical steroids can speed up this process and enhance the appearance of your final scar. Dr. Vennemeyer will recommend the right scar products for you when the time is right. This is usually 2-3 weeks after your procedure when the incision has healed significantly, but the scar is still very new.

You love your kids, right? We are guessing that you feel less affectionate about the effects of pregnancy on your body… mommy makeovers in Dallas / Fort Worth are popular procedures that address the areas most commonly affected by pregnancy—namely your breasts and tummy. In one procedure, you can restore breast fullness and perkiness, a flatter tummy and a smaller waist.

MOMMY MAKEOVER - BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast Augmentation

Many of our patients in the Dallas, Ft. Worth area are new moms with the hope of restoring breast fullness, eliminating sagging after pregnancy and breast feeding. Having babies and breastfeeding takes its toll on your breasts. Most women see a significant increase in the size of their breasts during pregnancy and lactation. This can stretch your breast skin beyond its ability to shrink back resulting in sagging and deflation. Many women even lose breast volume after they have children, leaving them with less breast fullness.

Breast fullness and breast sagging are two separate issues. Breast fullness is the amount of volume filling out your breast skin. If your breasts do not have enough volume they will appear deflated. This can be subtle or extreme.

Sagging, drooping or ptosis means that your nipples or breasts are too low. The inframammary folds or breast creases are used as a reference to determine how much drooping you have. The more your breasts and nipples hang below the inframammary fold, the more severe your sagging is.

Sometimes deflation and sagging are separate issues and sometimes they occur at the same time. Dr. Vennemeyer will determine if you have one or both issues. This is important because different procedures are necessary to get a great result. Breast lifts (mastopexy) improve breast sagging and make breasts perkier by removing extra skin and moving your nipples to the right level.

•    Breast augmentation makes your breasts fuller and larger by adding volume with breast implants. This will not make your breasts perkier!

•    Breast augmentation and breast lift combined with make you fuller and perkier.

If you wish your nipples were higher, you probably need a breast lift. Implants alone will not fix this, but if your nipples are only a little low, many women can get a great result with just breast implants (assuming you want fuller, larger breasts). If you just want larger breasts and you are happy with the level of your nipples, breast implants will likely get you the result you want.

Considerations before making the decision (diet, fitness, weight (after giving birth) lifestyle, risks etc.

It’s best to be close to your desired weight prior to breast surgery, especially if your breasts change size significantly when your weight fluctuates. If you drop a lot of pounds after cosmetic breast surgery your breasts may deflate to the point where it could affect your result. If you gain weight your breasts may end up larger than you want. Most women maintain a good result when they are within 5 to 10 pounds of their desired weight. Your risks with surgery drop significantly the closer you are to your ideal weight, so the benefits go beyond aesthetic considerations.

Factors that influence a successful mommy makeover

Get the right sized breast implants

Breast size is probably the biggest source of satisfaction or dissatisfaction after a breast makeover. Dr. Vennemeyer takes extensive measurements and helps you try on breast implant sizers in the office. This allows you to see what a size looks like on you. You can even try on different outfits to get a sense of what your new proportion would look like in different clothes.  The goal is to help you pick a size you will love.

Get the right breast augmentation procedure

Choose the right procedure(s) to get the result you want. Do not make the mistake of getting large implants thinking it will give you a lift. This leads to big problems. Use the right size of implants to give you the size you want and get a lift if you need to be perkier, too. If you want more fullness in your upper breasts, implants are usually necessary. If you want to be the same size, only perkier, a lift alone may do the trick. However, most of the time women with sagging want to enhance the fullness of the upper part of their breasts and cleavage area. Breast augmentation combined with a breast lift is the most common procedure to achieve this. If you want the fullness, the perkiness, but do not want to be any larger, then a breast reduction with implants can make you perkier, add fullness to the right places and keep you around the same size or smaller.

Mommy makeover-what exactly is it?

In one procedure, you can restore breast fullness and perkiness, a flatter tummy and a smaller waist.

MOMMY MAKEOVER - WHAT EXACTLY IS IT?

Mommy Makeover DallasA mommy makeover focuses on two main areas that are seriously affected during pregnancy - specifically the breasts and the midsection. Because every female body is different, so is every mommy makeover.

Many women find that pregnancy and breastfeeding leave their breasts looking deflated and saggy. The breast portion of your mommy makeover procedure may include breast augmentation to restore your former fullness or to increase you to your new desired cup size. If you are happy with your size and want to be perkier, a breast lift may be the best procedure for you. A breast augmentation and lift will make you larger and perkier. If you want smaller breasts after pregnancy, a breast reduction could be part of your mommy makeover.

Now let's talk about your midsection. Many women find it very difficult getting a flat tummy after pregnancy, despite a lot of exercise, healthy diet and weight loss. If you have been doing sit-ups without results, you may have a "diastasis". This is a widening of the space between your six-pack muscles (rectus muscles). It is like someone loosened a belt around your core. During your tummy tuck, Dr. Vennemeyer will place stitches to pull the muscles closer together to tighten your core and make your tummy flatter. Any areas of excess fat around the core can be treated with liposuction to improve your shape. Dr. Vennemeyer often performs circumferential liposuction around the waist and abdomen, which he calls 360 Lipo, as part of the mommy makeovers in Dallas he performs. This can provide more dramatic results than liposuction of the hips alone.
