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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

The demand for arm lift surgeries has exploded as more people have become aware that they can say goodbye to excess arm skin and fat through plastic surgery. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can reshape both the upper and lower arms to provide a more contoured look and get rid of the so-called “bat-wing” look. Is brachioplasty the right cosmetic surgery to help you reach your aesthetic goals? Here are some signs that an arm lift could be right for you.
You’ve Lost a Large Amount of Weight
When you’re overweight, your skin stretches to accommodate your size. When you lose weight, your skin may stay stretched. This is especially true as you get older, if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, or if you lose weight very quickly. When your skin is stretched, no amount of diet and exercise can make it appear toned. For your arms, that can mean sagging skin and a general un-toned appearance. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan can remove the excess skin and pull your remaining skin tight so your arms have a more toned look.
You Have Stubborn Fat Pockets
Diet and exercise are important parts of staying fit and maintaining a healthy weight, but they aren’t always enough to get rid of all your unwanted fat. It’s common to have areas of fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise. If you have these bulges on your arm, an arm lift procedure can remove excess fat to create a smoother appearance.
Depending on your needs, Dr. Geoghegan can remove both excess skin and stubborn fat during an arm lift. To see if this kind of cosmetic surgery can help you, make an appointment at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Our Scottsdale plastic surgeon will answer all your questions about arms lifts and our plastic surgery procedures, and help you make a treatment plan. Schedule a consultation by calling (480) 619-5418.
