Tummy Tucks

“107, 108, 109, 110.” If you are doing hundreds of sit-ups everyday but still aren’t getting the abdominal results that you want, then it might be time to consider doing something a bit more outside of the box such as abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck.

Do to things such as age, having babies, or extreme weight loss, the area around your abdomen might become loose and saggy in appearance, leaving you with every excuse to never wear a bikini again. However, by having a tummy tuck, you can get a tighter and flatter stomach without having to spend countless more nights in front of the TV doing those pesky abdominal crunches.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

tummy tuckTummy tucks or abdominoplasty, is the surgical process in which excess fat and skin will be removed around your abdominal area, leaving you with a more taut and younger looking belly. During the 5-6 hour long procedure you will be under anesthesia and will likely be required to spend the night at the hospital in order to properly recover and be monitored after the surgery.

What is Recovery Time Like?
After surgery, you can expect to have some pain and swelling around the surgical site but that should subside with a few days to a week. Once you are out of surgery and are starting to recover, your doctor will place a thick bandage around your middle in order to make sure that you properly heal without straining any muscles. Your doctor will instruct you on how often to change the bandage and how to properly wrap it around your abdomen. Your overall recovery time will depend on how your surgery went but you can expect to be out of work for a couple of weeks while your body fully heals and gets back to feeling like normal.

When Will I See Results?
Some people claim to see results right away but due to the large amount of swelling that will be present, you likely won’t be able to fully see and enjoy your results for a couple of weeks. Don’t be discouraged by having to wear a bandage for a few weeks and know that you will soon be able to show off your flat stomach.

4 Things You Didn’t Know Botox Was Used For

The rich and famous use it and it’s likely that your friends and coworkers have had their own dose of this filler as well. As the most popular filler on the market, Botox is considered to be a miracle worker for many women. Used to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, Botox gives patients a younger and more even looking skin tone. However, although it’s predominant use is as the top facial filler on the market, Botox is also used to treat a variety of other areas, including the following.

  1. BotoxMigraines
    If you’re like the millions of individuals who suffer from debilitating chronic migraines, and you just can’t seem to find a cure, then Botox might actually be able to help. During this process, 31 injections will be inserted into the neck and head every 12 weeks in order to help prevent the onset of headaches.
  2. Underarm Sweat
    Nothing is quite as embarrassing as lifting up your arm only to reveal a giant sweat stain underneath. If you suffer from chronic underarm sweating and it is causing embarrassment and discomfort, Botox can help with that too! By having injections of Botox made in your underarms, it helps to stop the production of chronic sweat, leaving you with less sweat stains and less of an embarrassment.
  3. Overactive Bladder
    One of the most surprising things that Botox can help with is an overactive bladder. If you struggle with the constant urgency to urinate and just can’t seem to find some sort of relief, then Botox can help you. During the procedure, Botox is injected into the bladder muscle in order to help stop any spasms that help induce the desire to urinate.
  4. Neck Pain
    Cervical Dystonia is a condition that causes neck pain in individuals who are 16 years and older, and that effects even the slightest neck movements. However, you may have guess by now, that Botox can in fact also help to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by this disorder.

Botox is used for a slew of other things not associated with plastic surgery. In fact, it can be used as a tool to help treat serious conditions like chronic migraines and neck pain. If you or a loved one suffers from any of these conditions, ask your doctor today about the possibility of using Botox treatment.
