Q.) What is the newest in plastic surgery for men?

A.) Men have been increasingly more comfortable with the idea of facial and body rejuvenation over the last few years.  This is in partially because of the mainstream acceptance of plastic surgery, but also likely a result of wanting to look good in the work place environment.  The most common treatment for men is still Botox.  However, some of the newest plastic surgery treatments for men have been Cool Sculpting and hair transplant surgery. Cool Sculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment performed in the office. While hair transplant surgery has been around for a while it has become more high-tech in the last few years allowing men to receive hair transplant surgery without the need for a donor scar.

Q.) How long after tummy tuck surgery can I resume normal exercise?

A.) Tummy tuck surgery requires about six weeks of recovery before mild exercise is resumed. Each surgery and each patient is different so actual recovery and return to exercise will vary. The more that is invested in the recovery process early the faster full healing will occur.
