Will Breast Implants Affect Breast Feeding?

A common concern around breast augmentation surgery is about how the procedure might affect breastfeeding. This can be a difficult question to answer because, for some women, breast implants have no effect at all on nursing. For others, the situation maybe more complex. Here we examine the impacts implants may have on breastfeeding. Breast Implants Augmentation surgery involves inserting implants into a woman’s breasts. Many women feel dissatisfied or insecure about the size and shape of their breasts and therefore elect to have surgery with the aim of enhancing their physical appearance and building up their self esteem. Some women have underdeveloped (hypoplastic) breasts and can benefit greatly from implants. Whatever your reason for desiring implants, many women have elected to get augmentation and have had no issues with them. Breastfeeding For most women who have had breast augmentation surgery and subsequently tried to breastfeed, they have experienced little to no problems. There are different techniques for the surgery, but for women who are concerned about being able to go on to breastfeed, certain techniques are safer than others. Incisions made under the fold of the breast or in the armpit are not likely to have an impact on breastfeeding, where as a “smile” incision around the areola is more…

How Soon Can I Sit After A Buttock Augmentation?

For many people who are dissatisfied with their rear end, a buttock augmentation is a worthwhile procedure. A buttock augmentation can give the shape and size you desire. However, your hips are such a major joint in the body, and your buttocks are so integral to many of your daily actions, that the healing process is a sensitive one. After undergoing buttock augmentation, how soon afterward can you sit down? And what exactly does the surgery entail? We examine these questions in this blog post: Buttock Augmentation: What is it?

Can I Get A Laser Hair Removal Over A Tattoo?

For many people, Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is the best, most efficient, and most permanent way to remove hair from their body. But it is a relatively new technique using relatively new technology. As such, there are many things about the process that many people do not understand and have many questions. One commonly asked question is, “Can I get a laser hair removal over a tattoo?” Laser Hair Removal First, let us go over what laser hair removal actually entails. The process consists of beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and this destroys the follicle. The end result is that most patients experience permanent hair loss in the targeted area after undergoing LHR. LHR can be used on most parts of the human body and is exceptionally quick. The laser can treat an area of the approximate size of a quarter every second. It is incredibly precise, targeting the dark pigment of follicle roots and leaving the adjacent skin undamaged. The Trouble with LHR on a Tattooed Area Perhaps you got a tattoo when you were younger and there was much less or no hair in the area of the tattoo. Or maybe you just did not care about that…
