That’s because there are less fat and skin to remove from the chin and neck than the thighs, buttocks, and other places where liposuction is performed.

Many people are surprised to read about the many differences between tummy tuck and lipo. If you aren’t sure about which procedure is right for you, remember that tummy tuck vs liposuction depends a lot on where you are in terms of weight loss. Tummy [...]
Drains are often used during or after surgery to help the body expel fluids that collect at the surgical site.

As more women delay childbirth, we’re seeing more pregnant moms who have had breast implants. Many have asked if breastfeeding with breast implants is possible. For many women, the answer is yes. When Can You Breastfeed With Implants? Women whose incisions were under the breasts and whose implants are under the muscles are most likely to be able to successfully breastfeed. This is because incision and implant locations are away from milk ducts and nerves associated with milk production. Women [...]
