Repost from @beautybydrcat) πŸ’πŸ½πŸ’πŸ½πŸ’πŸ½Tummy tucks are one of my favorite and one of the most life changing surgeries I perform. Contrary to what many people think - diet and exercise cannot solve the problem of excess skin, separation of the abdominal muscles or loosening of the abdominal wall. A tummy tuck removes and tightens the excess skin and repairs and strengthens the abdominal wall. Removing the extra skin which can pull and create irritation and sweating and tightening the muscles allows patients to feel more comfortable and more confident.

I believe that the most important elements of a tummy tuck from a surgical and aesthetic view are the contour of the abdominal wall, the belly button, the incision, and the recovery. The outcome of these are all technical things that are very very surgeon dependent. I believe the abdominal wall should have a contour that looks like "abs", the belly button should have a natural and oval innie, the incision should be low and thin and the recovery quick. Every detail of the surgery matters to me and I take my time to passionately create a work of art , not just remove tissues (If you've ever seen me operate you'll understand what I mean). Most of my patients take at most a few days of prescription pain medication and many just take Tylenol. They are walking and eating the night right after surgery.
Tummy tucks are one of the most common surgeries I perform and I love them because they so greatly improve my patients' lives.

Is it safe to use the Hyaluronic Acid Night C-Complex around the eye area?
Absolutely! In fact, I actually use the night cream as an eye cream by placing a thicker layer. The night cream really builds collagen and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Also, the low molecular weight hyaluronic Acid will hydrate the thin eye skin. It will feel different from anything you have tried before. #mdglam #skincare

Knowledge is important. But knowledge without vision and imagination to apply it is pretty useless. Any achievement regardless of size or chosen field has to start in your mind. You have to visualize and see yourself being that person. Talking to many young women, one the biggest frustrations for most of them is not having enough resources to pursue their dreams. Here is the deal - stop thinking about what you don't have and work with what you have. If you are reading this right now, you probably are already on your way somewhere in life whether you know it or not, otherwise you wouldn't be reading my record-long social media captions. You are a huge reservoir of talent and only you can tap into it. Set short term and long term goals. Divide them into a series of small goals. Every day you should have one goal that your should meet. It absolutely doesn't have to be a large one but putting together 365 met goals in one year can lead to something wonderful. Have a kickass Monday. Don't forget that you are awesome. Dr. Cat.

Pablo Picasso once said: "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." Growing up I spent a tremendous amount of time on arts and music. My parents made sure that I had a broad curriculum that helped me discover a variety of talents. I'm so thankful for that. Even though I didn't pursue classical music or art professionally, it still helps me even today break away from every day life and clear my mind for an hour or two a week playing a piece or painting. Although those moments are fleeting, I have fully enjoyed the moment - find little breaks in life that you treasure and they will fill you with joy. Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. Dr. Cat

Many people ask me what the difference is between my product containing Vitamin C versus other skincare products. Vitamin C must be formulated in a way that is stable to be absorbed into the skin and be effective. This is particularly tricky when mixed with other ingredients. There must also be a high enough concentration of Vitamin C present to be effective. Also, only certain molecular forms of vitamin C can be absorbed in the skin and be effective. All of these details are important. As a molecular biology graduate from Harvard and published skin researcher, I cared a lot about these details and I worked extensively with my manufacturer to make sure the Vitamin C in my products was exactly the way I wanted it. When formulated correctly, Vitamin C is one of the most effective anti-aging and skin health ingredients.
@mdglam Vitamin C products are stable and effective due to the unique compositions and methods of its ingredient blends.
Here is how Vitamin C works. Exposure to harmful UV rays creates free radicals which damage collagen as well as other components of skin integrity - antioxidants like Vitamin C neutralize free radicals and protect from this damage. There have been many double blind placebo controlled studies that have shown that Vitamin C increases collagen in the skin and the integrity of the extracellular matrix of the skin. Studies using optic profilometry which measures skin surface profiles have demonstrated that Vitamin C improves skin texture, fine wrinkling, roughness, and skin elasticity. Vitamin C, which combined with Vitamin E is more effective, is one of the key ingredients in the MDGLAM NIGHT moisturizer. #mdglam #surgeon #skincare #plasticsurgeon #antiaging

TheΒ American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports thatΒ buttock implants were the fastest growing type of cosmetic surgery in 2015, and, overall, there was a buttock procedure every 30 minutes of every day, on average.
Here are the top procedures related to the bottom in 2015:
1.Buttock augmentation with fat grafting (14,705 procedures, up 28 percent from 2014 to 2015)
2.Buttock liftΒ (4,767 procedures up 36 percent from 2014 to 2015)
3.Buttock implants (2,540 procedures up 36 percent from 2014 to 2015)

Brazilian Butt Lift involves a natural fat transfer to the buttocks. In contrast to buttocks implants, your own fat is soft, natural feeling, and won’t shift overtime like many implants do. Because a Brazilian Butt Lift is combined with liposuction to other areas – usually the flanks or abdomen – the final result is an overall much more aesthetically beautiful body. The ideal shape feminine shape is a thin waistline and a back that curves gently into a full buttocks.Β You will need to have enough fat to donate from other areas of your body to create a nice shape to your buttocks. The fat that survives transplantation will give long term results and with a proper healthy diet and exercise, the liposuctioned areas will preserve their shape.
A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure takes anywhere from two to five hours depending on the number of areas that fat is harvested and is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made inconspicuously in the depression between the buttocks and back.
πŸ’΅ Surgery fee: $1500-3000 per area of liposuction plus $3500-$5000 for fat transfer. Plus OR and anesthesia. πŸ“ Precautions : No pressure to butt for 4-6 wks. πŸ’Š Recovery: Most patients off prescription pain meds 2-4 days. Most return to work 3-4 days. πŸ‹οΈ Exercise: Walking immediately. Mild cardio first 2 wks. Ok for more intense cardio 2-4 wks. 4 wks ok to lift any areas not operated on. 6 wks healed. πŸ‘»Snapchat: beautybydrcat
