    What Does a Post-Pregnancy Mommy Tuck Involve?

    Last updated 1 hour 55 minutes 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 7 days 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.

    Signs That You Can Benefit From an Arm Lift

    Last updated 14 days ago

    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. 

    What Is Gynecomastia?

    Last updated 21 days ago

    Gynecomastia refers to enlarged breasts in men. This condition can dramatically impact self-esteem and cause men to avoid physical activity and intimacy. The good news for gynecomastia sufferers is that it can often be corrected surgically.

    A number of things can trigger gynecomastia. For some men, gynecomastia is caused by hormonal imbalances, prescription medications, and even genetics. In other cases, men develop gynecomastia from using anabolic steroids. Excess alcohol consumption and marijuana have also been linked to gynecomastia. To treat this condition, Dr Jennifer Geoghegan can remove the excess fat in the chest area to give it a flatter appearance. Depending on your specific symptoms, your plastic surgeon may also need to remove excess skin and reposition the nipple for a natural appearance.

    You don’t have to accept the embarrassment of gynecomastia. Let Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa help you with a life-changing plastic surgery. Schedule a consultation by calling (480) 619-5418.

    The Patient's Guide to CoolSculpting

    Last updated 28 days ago

    Are you tired of dealing with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise? Are you hesitant to turn to plastic surgery? If so, then CoolSculpting could be right for you. This revolutionary treatment actually freezes your fat away so you can get the svelte physique you’ve always wanted. Here is what you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.

    How Does CoolSculpting Work?
    CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells by freezing them. During treatment, medical providers and specialists will apply the cooling device to the treatment area. You will feel pressure as the fat is compressed and then a very cold sensation as it freezes. The fat cells are crystalized and die, after which they are expelled from your system over the coming weeks. Once the fat cells are gone, they will not come back. Though you may not weigh less on your scale, you will lose inches and your clothes will fit better.

    How Many Treatments Do I Need?
    The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Your medical providers and specialists at Oasis Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine which areas can benefit from treatment and how many sessions each area will require for optimum results. The length of each session also varies depending on how many areas are being treated.

    What Is the Recovery Like?
    Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment. Most people can resume normal activities right away. You may experience numbness, redness, soreness, stinging, or bruising after treatment, but these side effects are minimal for most patients and should subside quickly.

    To find out if CoolSculpting is right for you, make an appointment at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Our medical providers and specialists will evaluate your goals and help you select the right procedures to meet them. Make your appointment by calling OPS today at (480) 619-5418.
