BREAST AUGMENTATION

___
Don’t be afraid to talk about it.

Don’t hesitate to talk about it with other women who have the same idea or who already had breast augmentation. You will notice that you are not the only one having some questions. You can do this in writing or by phone and/or consult forums. A lot of newspapers and magazines have often visited chat groups.

___
Be sure of yourselves

A breast augmentation can only be performed once the breasts will no longer develop spontaneously, so normally as from the age of 18. In general, most women consider a breast augmentation between the age of 30 and 40, after having had children. If you change your mind later on, you will have to do a new operation.

___
Put your questions in writing

Breast augmentation is a huge decision. It is thus very important to inform yourselves wel and to weigh up the pros and cons before you decide. You will find lists on different sites with practical questions to ask at the first consultation. Don’t hesitate to add yours.

Nose surgery

___
Have realistic expectations

It is impossible to determine with extreme precision, the desired changes without taking into account the limits of the surgery of the nose. Clinic Beaucare advises against each comparison with other people or a celebrity. You should be aware of the fact that the final result of a nose correction can only be seen after 1 year.

___
Do I need a nose surgery or chin surgery ?

Nose surgery is not always the most desirable operation in order to obtain a good result. A receding chin makes the nose look more prominent. So it might happen that a patient is asking for a nose correction, but that the surgeon offers a chin correction with chin implant.

Eye surgery

___
Difference between eye surgery and bags under the eyes

It happens that the loose skin and drooping eyelids are not due to the upper eyelid but due to sagging eyebrows. So it is important to make the distinction.

Do the test :
Put your fingers on the skin just above the brow and begin to lift the brows and then drop the eyebrow again. If the droopy eyelid starts to improve before getting worse, the problem will most probably be caused by sagging eyebrows.

___
A visit every 5 years

The duration of the effectiveness of the treatment is different from one person to another. Normally, it will be 5 years or more. Smoking, drinking and sun exposure can contribute to speed up the aging process.

Belly surgery

Avoid tobacco and specific medications before the surgery

It is important to not take medication which thinnens the blood. You should also stop smoking 3 to 6 weeks before the surgery and until 1 week after the surgery. Nicotine increases the risk of poor wound healing.

___
Tummy tuck and liposuction are sometimes ineffective

When the fat is located beyond the abdominal wall, a tummy tuck or liposuction is ineffective. In some cases, the protrusion of the stomach is the result of an intestinal dilatation and accumulation of the fat around the intestine.

Ear surgery

___
Have realistic expectations

You can expect a significant improvement of the position of the ears but not to perfection. In addition, it is almost impossible to achieve absolute symmetry of the position of the ears. The surgery leaves a scar behind the ear, which is almost invisible.
