When you’ve made the decision to get breast implants, your next big choice is what size to get. Picking the right size for your implants can be a tough decision. It is a good idea to work closely with your plastic surgeon as you weigh your options. Here are some factors to keep in mind as you make your choice:
To choose the size of your implants, start by considering the size of your breasts now and your overall frame. Dr. Geoghegan will help you understand what size of implants you would need to achieve your desired look and if the size you’re envisioning would suit your frame. You should also think about how natural you want your breast implants to look. Some women prefer a modest increase in breast size, while others are more focused on achieving a much bigger size.

Sagging skin is a common complaint heard by cosmetic surgeons. Skin loosening happens to just about everyone with the passage of time. Sagging skin may appear on your face in the form of wrinkles and drooping eyelids, around your jawline in the form of jowls, and on your body in the form of loose skin. What exactly causes skin to sag, and what can a plastic surgeon do about it? Here is what you need to know:
For many people, sagging skin is just something that happens naturally with age. As the years go by, your skin loses collagen and elastin. These connective tissues help skin look plump and soft. As they disappear, your skin may flatten, droop, and generally look less youthful than before. Another contributing factor to age-related skin sagging is a loss of muscle tone. Your facial muscles become weaker as you get older, so they don’t prop up your skin as much as before. Dr. Geoghegan can recommend a range of treatments from dermal fillers or Botox to face lifts, to address these issues.
The sun causes skin sagging in two ways. First, the sun causes cell damage, which makes your complexion look dull, discolored, and wrinkly. Second, the sun breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin, which speeds up the loosening caused by age. Many of the same treatments that address age-related sagging also address the effects of excess sun exposure.
Weight loss is a great thing for your overall health, but dramatic, sudden weight loss can also take a toll on the skin. When you lose a lot of weight, particularly if you lose it fast, you may be left with saggy, excess skin. This skin will not respond to diet and exercise efforts; however, Dr. Geoghegan can remove the skin and give you a leaner appearance.

Aging is a natural part of life, but getting—and looking—older can be quite frustrating to experience. If you are worried about facial folds, wrinkles, and lines, there is a variety of cosmetic facial filler options available to you.
A relatively new process called fat grafting, or autologous fat transplantation, can re-contour your face without any worry of allergic reactions caused by foreign substances entering your body. During the fat grafting procedure, fat is removed or liposuctioned from one part of your body and injected into other areas to improve the appearance of your face, chin, and cheeks. Many people prefer this to other dermal fillers because it is a natural procedure. Depending on where the fat graft is placed, it can last for as long as a few years.
When you are ready to talk to a plastic surgeon about whether fat grafting is right for you, call Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa of Scottsdale at (480) 264-6428. Our caring and compassionate team will listen to your goals and come up with a treatment plan to best suit you.
