Relief :) Even Though I'm Only 4days PO with Drains Still In...- New York, NY

From my initial consultation to post op everything has been worth every bead of sweat. When I got pregnant 12 years ago I thought I would be one of those supermodel moms since I was only 118lbs and healthy but that was not the case. I went up to 188lbs then leveled off at 170lbs even though I was still healthy I surely didn't feel it. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I had...

Three Part Mommy MakeOver... - New York, NY

I am twenty five years old with two children(3 & 1). I love my babies more than anything, but they really destroyed my body. On December 23rd, 2010 I had a Breast Augmentation...I went from a barely 34B to a nice 34D. Although I was uncomfortable, the pain wasn't enough for me to take anything more than Tylenol. Last Tuesday, March 15th, I had lipo of my love handles and the...

Benelli lift with implants - New York, NY

I am a mother of two, 23 months and 9months. I am 26 years old and all my life I was always slim with some curves. My chest area was my biggest insecurity even though everyone told me I looked great. After giving birth to my two children, I have not been feelin the same about my body. Being the outgoing woman I was, my confidence has gone down completely. My fiancée lifted me up and...

I always knew I wanted bigger breasts, but after breast feeding my two children, my wants became more of a need. My breasts had completely lost volume and I didn't feel as I got the implants! I am more than thrilled with the whole experience, and my doctor was absolutely fantastic!!

TT on Hold Until my Blood Pressure Goes Down...- New York City, NY

Hello ladies...I was supposed to have my TT last Friday but due to HBP while on the table it was cancelled. I was so bummed out and am trying to see if it can be done this Friday. I have been monitoring my BP and so far it has been going down. I do take meds for it and also started taking my prescribed water pills to help it and also ate garlic this weekend. Even though they tell you not to...

Botox Gone Bad. Injectable Horror Stories

As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in New York, I see many patients with facial lines who are looking for nonsurgical correction. Many of them have had it done before in other places, and I hear shocking stories . Let me tell you a little bit about how to avoid being ripped off or permanently damaged.Only a doctor or a nurse under his direct supervision licensed in the state can inject you with a filler or botox. If it is a doctor from another country or a salon or spa employee, it is...

Silicone Injections to the Buttocks are Always a Mistake

Let me first start by saying that this is my personal and professional opinion as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and it comes from both my training at Columbia Presbyterian and from my private practice in NYC, Yager Esthetics. Although I do not know any Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who do the procedure in the US, and to my interpretation of the legal guidelines it is not FDA approved even as an off label use as this type of silicone has no approvals, I am sure it happens.Despite the...

The ABC’s of Vitamins in Plastic Surgery

Many of my patients at Yager Esthetics are very into vitamins and supplements. In Spanish culture, they are a part of life since Rico Perez popularized them on television. What many people do not know is which ones are important for what reasons, and which to avoid before surgery. Vitamin A is the heart of retin-A, a great product for skin rejuvenation. It must be avoided before skin care treatments such as peels, laser, and microdermabrasion. It also makes you more sensitive to the sun. The...

Diabetes and Plastic Surgery

With November being Diabetes Awareness Month, we felt it would be a good opportunity to talk about the many patients living with diabetes who are considering cosmetic plastic surgery. Diabetes is indeed a serious disease, but it does not necessarily prevent you from improving your appearance. The first think we do at Yager Esthetics is to take a full history on each patient. The information you give helps me determine your options. Diabetics have a higher risk of certain complications...

The Importance of Anesthesia in Plastic Surgery

As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, my practice at Yager Esthetics is mainly one of surgery. In order to keep my patients safe and pain free, I need to provide anesthesia. This is a topic even the most educated patients neglect to ask about. Some patients do have strong feelings about the type of anesthesia used, and if they have had bad experiences in the past, will prefer not to use the same technique. General anesthesia, monitored sedation, regional anesthesia, and local anesthesia...
