By now we have all seen our fair share of new and improved butt busting workout routines that promote jaw-dropping results to change a woman’s backside from flab to fab, but what about those women with a little extra weight showing around the abdomen and upper body? Well I always tell my clients that eating a healthy diet and exercise are essential to maintaining a fit body, since there is no other natural substitute. However, a Brazilian Butt Lift is the ideal solution to achieve a thinner waistline and a curvy backside.
Plenty of potential clients wonder how a cosmetic procedure can give them a bigger butt without looking over the top, the process is simple. In contrast to buttock implants, the patient’s fat is harvested from stubborn fat areas on the body and transferred to the buttocks to increase shape and volume.
Can Exercise Achieve the Same Results?
It is possible to go to the gym everyday, which everyone should consider to support a healthy body, but the same effect from BBL cannot be achieved at the gym. Some of my clients are unaware that there are actually three muscle groups every woman has to target in order to get a firmer and lifted butt – the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. Women often do not complete the required exercises to hit each area and fail to see fast-acting results.
We can learn all the trendy fitness exercises, such as squats, pelvic raises and lunges but when results are not achieved at the gym, Brazilian Butt Lift picks up the slack and reshapes the butt as well as enhances your figure.
What if My Body is Too Thin?
Many of my clients assume that their figure may be too small or petite to be a candidate for the procedure. The procedure does require the patient to carry some excess body fat, but most of my patients do possess a perfect amount of donor body fat to transfer to the buttocks. If the patient is too thin, I turn them to a special diet to gain weight necessary for the procedure.
Generally, patients can return to work within a week after their procedure and swelling will disappear within a few weeks. So when exercise and diet do not do the trick to naturally enhance your curves, schedule a consultation for Brazilian Butt Lift to fulfill your ideal feminine shape.

Today you looked at yourself in the mirror and wondered, do my eyes really make me look that much older? Most patients are skeptical about going under the knife for eyelid surgery, and that is not a problem at all. Fortunately, there are a number of rejuvenating treatments that create significantly smoother skin around the eyes without the use of a scalpel.
Commit to Prevention Early
Prevention is the best solution everyone can do to prevent aging signs on your face. People who follow a consistent healthy skin care regimen in the younger years can help the area around the eyes stay youthful much longer than others. Crow’s feet is often the most complained about aging sign we strive to avoid, so by utilizing sunscreen and moisturizer daily you can look forward to natural and wrinkle-free skin for a long time.
Sometimes we cannot always prevent damage from happening and faint signs of wrinkles in our complexion spring forward. It is still wise to continue moisturizing and protecting your skin, as well as scheduling an appointment to learn about laser skin resurfacing. This is a noninvasive treatment that is much more gentler on the skin than chemical peels or dermabrasion which can wound the outer layers of skin. It improves the appearance of scars, hyperpigmentation and fine lines that develop around the eyes and other areas of the face.
Botox injections are perfect choice for men and women to eliminate crow’s feet and wrinkling around the eyes. This treatment relaxes the facial muscles that created the fine lines from sprouting into deep wrinkles. Smoother and even skin is achieved for several months and even longer with healthy skin care protection.
It is simple to make your eyes look increasingly younger. There are a number of options to help prevent and eliminate wrinkles for youthful looking eyes. After treatment in our office it is vital to maintain a healthy skin care regimen to achieve long-lasting results. Over 6 million Americans turned to Botox for anti-aging skin care in 2012, you can experience younger looking skin too.

The last month, I have had friends and husbands purchase gift certificates for their loved ones as presents. Good Morning America did a segment recently about giving plastic surgery procedures as Christmas gifts. Botox, liposuction, and breast augmentation were found on several women’s Christmas wish list.
Considering that Botox usually costs a few hundred dollars and other plastic surgery procedures in the thousands – it is a rather generous gift. Obviously when it comes to suggesting someone improve their appearance, discretion is recommended. If a friend or family member had been wanting something, talked about it openly, but perhaps couldn’t afford it, plastic surgery might make a great present.
Drop by our office if you are interested in purchasing a gift certificate for a loved one!

Some of the most common questions I get from my patients after breast augmentation have to do instructions after breast augmentation. Most of my patients are feeling pretty good by the 3rd or 4th day and they want to get back into the gym or resuming normal activities.
I always caution my patients that even though they are feeling great – they still need to be very careful and take it easy while they are healing. It’s fine for patients to return to work and drive after about a week if they are off all pain medication as long as they don’t have to use their arm muscles in their job or to drive their vehicle. When driving, especially with patients with SUV’s I tell them to be careful when getting in and out of the vehicle and not to use their arms to pull themselves in or out.
I have my patients try to use their arms as little as possible for the first 2 weeks. I tell them to pretend that their elbows are glued to their sides and to try not to raise their arms out to the side. I remind them when getting out of bed or a chair not to push off with their arms, to use their stomach muscles or have someone help someone support their back. This is to prevent the implant from migrating, or excessive movement that may cause some internal oozing or bleeding. They also shouldn’t do anything that will raise their blood pressure because this can cause oozing too. Definitely no smoking after surgery while the body is healing and also refrain from alcohol for about 2 weeks. The best thing is to take it easy after surgery and relax! Eat healthy foods that are high in natural vitamins and protein that are the building blocks for your body to heal.
After 2 weeks, patients can resume most normal activities even light cardio at the gym. It’s ok to take vitamins, herbals, and any other medications that were held before surgery. At a month, I lift almost all restrictions including carrying things. I wait until 6 weeks after surgery for patients to do exercises that really use the pectoralis muscles.
Although it’s easy to get impatient – post op care is critical to minimize complications and insure preservation of your beautiful results!

The National Sleep Foundation estimates that 18 million Americans have sleep apnea, which is associated with overweight people. Reason being is that when a person gains weight in the trunk and neck areas, sleep disordered breathing rises and sleep is constantly lost. Thus, those who are sleep deprived often lack motivation to exercise. A study published in the American Journal of Health Promotion showed that women who keep to a consistent sleep pattern maintain a healthier weight.
Researchers from Brigham Young University studied over 300 women from two Mountain West region universities to determine the relation between sleep and weight loss. Their report concluded that healthier weight was achieved by women who stuck with their sleeping patterns along with healthy sleep, than others who had less sleep and inconsistent sleep cycles.
Better Sleep Enables Healthier Weight Levels
Participants were assessed for body composition and recorded their daily body movement with activity trackers. The data helped authors evaluate sleep patterns and weight management throughout seven days for several weeks and results revealed:
Consistent bedtime and waking hours resulted in lower body fat
Those with less than 6.5 hours or more than 8.5 hours of sleep had higher body fat
Women with varied sleep and waking time by more than 90 minutes had more body fat
Quality sleep enables a woman to maintain body composition
The researchers also concluded that women who achieved healthy sleep had the lowest percentage of body fat when they slept between 8 and 8.5 hours.
Set Yourself Up for Sleep and Healthy Weight Loss
Most Americans try to do more while we are awake, even if it calls for losing precious hours of sleep. Unhealthy habits of staying up late, sleeping in too long and inconsistent sleep patterns do nothing to achieve healthy weight loss. The solution to weight loss is eat a nutritional diet, follow a normal exercise routine and develop a consistent sleeping pattern. After these steps are followed women who are still bothered by unwanted pockets of stubborn fat can turn to liposuction.
The study reveals that 8 hours of sleep a night, within a regular sleeping pattern should be consistent to maintain a healthy weight. Those who slept and woke up at their usual hours possessed the lowest body fat percentage, compared to those who were sleep deprived and slept irregular hours. Healthy diet, sleep and exercise are all ingredients to maintaining the lowest weight levels that we are desperate to achieve.
