5 Reasons You Should Consider Breast Augmentation Revision

While most women are happy with their breast augmentation results, The Piazza Center for Plastic Surgery often treats women who have had a breast augmentation elsewhere and are now experiencing complications or are disappointed with their results.

Resuming Exercise After a Tummy Tuck

My tummy tuck patients in Austin are often very concerned about recovery from the surgery--specifically, how long until they can return to working out. That's understandable since many of them are individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise. Women who have had children and weight loss patients are the most common tummy tuck …

Ask Hayley: KYBELLA®

Hayley discusses KYBELLA, an alternative to plastic surgery at Austin's The Piazza Center

I will proudly never be seen on open night of the “most fabulous restaurant in Austin”; I believe there is an adjustment period. I like the valet to learn the fastest route, the staff to get familiar with the wine list, and the grill to get a little grease on it before you see my …

Trainer Approved: Workout First, CoolSculpting® Second

The journey to find what moves you is unique for everyone. For some, it's barre classes; others prefer long walks. Yoga, circuit training, CrossFit®, Pilates… there are all kinds of options.

BOTOX® Cosmetic for Guys? Our Nurse Injector Talks “Bro-tox”

BOTOX® Cosmetic injector Hayley Peña describes popular anti-aging treatments for Austin men.

For whatever reason, anti-aging has long been considered “for the ladies.” It might be true that women pay closer attention to skin care products and treatments, but we’re not entirely sure why this myth has perpetuated for so long.
