Women who are considering tummy tuck surgery to eliminate excess skin in the abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles often wonder about the timing of such a procedure: is it better to wait until after pregnancy? And, are there any risks to getting pregnant after having the surgery? As far as the first question goes, our board-certified plastic surgeon typically recommends that patients wait on undergoing tummy tuck surgery until after they have completed their...

Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) are two of the most popular surgical body contouring options available at our practice. These procedures can do for many individuals what even the most rigorous diet and exercise routines can’t. For instance: liposuction can reduce stubborn fat deposits that simply won’t go away no matter how hard you try, while tummy tuck surgery is designed to eliminate excess, inelastic skin in the abdominal area and give this region...

Many women who are considering breast augmentation also plan to someday have children (or have more children, if they’re already mothers). Naturally, they might be concerned about how this procedure will affect their ability to breastfeed. Choosing whether to breastfeed, bottle feed, or both is a personal decision that shouldn’t be affected by whether or not a woman has breast implants. And fortunately, implants typically do not diminish a woman’s ability to nurse her children.... Continue Reading

Depending on your unique case, Dr. Semira Bayati can choose an incision placement to hide and conceal any post-operative scarring as much as possible. Short-scar techniques can sometimes be used for patients who are having smaller... Continue Reading
Breast reduction surgery can dramatically change the life of a woman who struggles with overly large breasts. When the breasts naturally develop to an excessive size, women often experience back, neck, and shoulder pain. In addition, physical exercise, wearing bras, and fitting into clothing can become difficult and uncomfortable. Since every breast reduction is custom-tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient, the cost of the surgery can vary. Some factors that go into... Continue Reading

Many of our patients who struggle with gynecomastia already maintain a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine. Just as the volume of breast tissue is not reduced when women exercise, men are no different.
