    Caring for Your Skin in Your 20s and 30s

    Last updated 3 days ago

    One of the tricks to maintaining great skin well into your golden years is to start caring for it very early on. If you are in your 20s or 30s, then it's important that you use a three-step approach to skin care in order to fight blemishes, discoloration, and other problems that could age your skin prematurely. As you will see in this video, a helpful partner in the fight to maintain youthful skin is the Obagi 360 complete system.

    The Obagi 360 complete skincare system consists of three must-have products that work together to exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize the skin. The system is clinically proven to minimize age spots, correct fine lines, and prevent skin damage from sun exposure.

    Caring for Your Breasts Following Plastic Surgery

    Last updated 18 days ago

    The way you look can greatly affect the way you feel and your level of self-confidence. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, a breast augmentation or breast lift procedure could be right for you. As with any cosmetic surgery, it’s important to understand the benefits and risks before deciding to go forward with the procedure. Once you and Dr Jennifer Geoghegan decide which breast surgery is right for you, you’ll need to take good care of yourself in order to maintain your results. Keep reading to learn how to care for your breasts after plastic surgery.

    Going Home
    After you are released from the hospital following your surgery, it is essential that you follow your doctor’s orders. Once the procedure has been completed, you will be wrapped in gauze, an ace bandage, or a surgical bra before you go home. 24 hours following the surgery, you can remove the surgical dressings as long as you leave the skin tape over your incisions. This tape is designed to stick to your skin, and will fall off on its own. You may experience some swelling and bruising around the surgical area, which is normal and should improve over the course of a few weeks.

    Most plastic surgeons feel that it’s acceptable to shower 48 hours after your surgery. While you can bathe in this manner, it is not a good idea to take a bath, swim, soak in a hot tub, or be in any other still water. Your incisions should be kept as dry as possible for the majority of the time, so put your hot tub plans on hold for the time being.

    If you normally wear an underwire bra, Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will recommend putting it aside during your recovery, as the wire can affect how your implants are positioned. You can remove your surgical bra or ace bandage for showering, but you should put it back on snugly once you’re dry.

    Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa is here to help you look and feel the way you’ve always wanted. Call our Scottsdale practice at (480) 619-5418 to set up a consultation to find out if breast surgery might be right for you. Dr. Geoghegan is dedicated to providing each of her patients with personalized and attentive care.

    Scheduling Male Breast Reduction Surgery

    Last updated 25 days ago

    Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men and results in the development of enlarged breasts. This condition can have physical and emotional consequences, and many men with gynecomastia choose to have plastic surgery to improve their appearance as well as their self-confidence. There are a number of potential causes of gynecomastia, including genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or the use of anabolic steroids and other drugs. During male breast reduction surgery, excess fat, glandular tissues, and even skin can be removed in order to create a better proportioned chest. If you have gynecomastia, you don’t have to live with fear or anxiety due to your condition. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will decide on the right surgical technique for you so you can feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.

    What Does a Post-Pregnancy Mommy Tuck Involve?

    Last updated 29 days ago

    Giving birth is a natural and miraculous experience, and being a mother is something many women desire. Though you may have enjoyed being pregnant and you certainly love your child, you may not love what pregnancy has done to your body. Proper diet and exercise can help you start to shed pregnancy pounds, but there may be some changes that you cannot fix with these methods alone. More and more women are turning to plastic surgery to get their pre-pregnancy bodies back. Read on to learn about what a post-pregnancy mommy tuck involves, and to see if it might be right for you.

    The Procedure
    Women who are within 10 pounds of their ideal weight may want to consider a mommy tuck to help them regain a flatter, firmer stomach. If this sounds like you, it’s a good idea to consult with Dr Jennifer Geoghegan to understand the potential benefits and risks of the procedure. During a mommy tuck or tummy tuck, Dr G will make incisions to expose the abdominal muscles so that they can be stitched back together if they are separated. The skin is pulled taut to cover the area, and any excess skin is removed. If you are planning on getting pregnant again, this procedure typically isn’t recommended, until you are done having children.

    The Recovery
    Because the skin is stretched tightly during a mommy tuck, recovery may take a bit longer.  It may take a few days for your skin to loosen up, so you may have to sleep in a sitting or flexed position initially. If you have a sedentary job, you may be able to return to it in as little as two weeks. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will prescribe pain medication to make you more comfortable during your recovery. Once you feel better, sticking to a healthy lifestyle will help you maintain your results.

    If you have been wishing you could change your post-pregnancy belly, call Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa of Scottsdale at (480) 619-5418 to schedule a consultation. Our friendly team will take great care of you and make sure you fully understand any cosmetic procedure you choose to undergo.

    How Liposuction Removes Fat

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Do you exercise and eat well, but still have stubborn areas of fat on your body? If so, consult with Dr Jennifer Geoghegan to find out if liposuction might be right for you. You can also watch this video to see how liposuction removes fat.

    Liposuction can be performed on areas with excess fat deposits such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, hips, and back. The procedure is less about weight loss and more about removing fat for a better body contour. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will use special tools to remove fat where it’s not wanted so that you can enjoy a firmer, slimmer figure.

    At Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa, liposuction is just one of the many cosmetic surgeries that our patients trust us to perform. Call us at (480) 619-5418 to learn more about this procedure.
