Teaching has become a great passion of mine over the past 22 years I’ve had practicing as a double-board certified plastic surgeon. During breast surgery consultations I’m able to teach patients about the ins-and-outs of their chosen procedure in order to keep them 100% in the know about the techniques, expectations, and results that will go into helping them get the breast enhancement results of their dreams. At Southern Plastic Surgery, we are big proponents for also teaching our patients about the benefits of overall health and wellness because we know that it is essential for maintaining long-lasting results. Many patients want to know how they can get the most out of their new look and how health and wellness can help shape plastic surgery results and better achieve their aesthetic goals.

A proper diet, positive lifestyle habits, and at least the minimum recommended amount of exercise are essential to maintaining plastic surgery results. Think about a mommy makeover, where a breast lift and breast augmentation combo helps to revive sagging breasts and increase their fullness with the help of silicone or saline breast implants. Gravity, childbirth, breastfeeding, and genetics all play a part in the changes that the breasts experience, but we can’t forget what changes can happen to them after significant weight gain and weight loss.

Sometimes patients just need the right guidance and encouragement when it comes to making healthy choices as pertaining to their diet and exercise habits. This is one of the main reasons we offer our patients an in-house Lifestyle & Weight Management program as an additional resource. Led by Jackie Madison, SPS’s very own office administrator and certified NESTA Weight Management Specialist, patients are guided through customized program plans that promote active lifestyles, healthy eating techniques, identify obstacles and personal goals, and assist in time and stress management. Here’s a quick look at more of what we offer to maximize your breast surgery results:

Regardless if you have a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction, no plastic surgery procedure is a “quick-fix” and patients should maintain a balanced diet in order to boost the immune system and feed the body the nutrients needed to heal itself from daily wear and tear.
