Top 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics Correlate with Mommy Makeover in Austin

In reviewing the 2012 Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Statistics as published by the ASPS, breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck procedures were in the top 6 procedures for last year.  Similarly, we have seen these trends here in Austin plastic surgery.  Frequently I am asked if all of these procedures can be performed at the same time—and the answer is yes—the “Mommy Makeover.”   I like to look at it as the “getting your body back” procedure.  Having kiddos can alter the … Continue Reading

Spring Time Spike in Austin Cosmetic Surgery

KLBJ News Radio’s Perry Watson recently interviewed me about the recent spike in spring time Austin cosmetic surgery procedures.  Consistent with the trends of the 2012 Top 5 Cosmetic Surgery and Minimally-Invasive Procedures, we have seen an increase in women seeking breast augmentation and lift procedures in preparation for the summer months.  We have also seen an increase in both men and women seeking liposuction contouring of the waistline to improve the undesired “muffin-top” or “love-handle” areas.  Despite Austin being … Continue Reading

Silicone Implants Dominate Market

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article regarding the comeback of silicone gel implants.  Statistics released Tuesday by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for 2012 showed that 72% of the 330,631 breast augmentation procedures in the U.S. used silicone implants, while 28% used saline, or sterile salt water.
