A breast uplift, or breast lift, is a plastic surgery that firms the breasts by tightening the tissues and eliminating excess skin. This surgery is ideal for those who wish to improve the appearance of sagging breasts that have diminished elasticity. Unlike a breast augmentation, a breast uplift does not involve implants to increase the volume of the breasts. However, many patients choose to combine a breast augmentation with a breast uplift to address both areas of concern.
As with any plastic surgery, you should disclose your full medical history during your consultation with the plastic surgeon. Discuss your goals for your appearance. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your overall health and take measurements of your breasts. He or she will also assess your skin elasticity. The consultation is a good time to ask your plastic surgeon any questions you might have, such as what you can expect from the procedure and the subsequent recovery.
If you would like to improve your bust line with a breast uplift, schedule a consultation with Dr. R. Scott Yarish, M.D. You can reach our Houston plastic surgery practice at (713) 469-3449 or visit our website for more information.

Plastic surgeons are increasingly recommending the CoolSculpting procedure to patients who would like the benefits of liposuction without invasive surgery. This procedure uses innovative technology to eliminate fat cells without the need for surgical techniques. Talk to your plastic surgeon today about whether the CoolSculpting technique is right for you. Here’s a look at what you can expect:
During your consultation with a plastic surgeon, you should disclose your full medical history, including any medical conditions you have and medications or supplements you take. Your plastic surgeon will determine whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure. The ideal candidate has realistic goals for his or her appearance and is within a normal range of body weight. This procedure is intended to remove stubborn bulges of fat; however, it is not considered a primary weight loss method for those who are significantly overweight.
Once your plastic surgeon determines that you’re a good candidate, you’ll discuss the target areas that you’d like to treat. This technique is ideal for reducing fat in the abdomen and hips. The plastic surgeon will position the CoolSculpting panels on your target areas. You’ll feel some pressure and an intense cooling sensation at first; these sensations rapidly dissipate and you can relax comfortably throughout the rest of the treatment. Each treatment typically takes about one to three hours.
One of the reasons why CoolSculpting is highly recommended by plastic surgeons is because you can return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience some temporary redness and tingling in the target areas.
The CoolSculpting procedure works by freezing the fat cells and allowing your body to naturally eliminate them. Your body will gradually get rid of the destroyed fat cells, so you’ll start to see results in about three weeks, with continued improvements for up to six months.

Plastic surgeries can help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted by slimming your silhouette, lifting sagging muscles, adding volume to your bust line, and much more. However, undergoing plastic surgery is a significant decision that you should consider carefully. Become an informed patient by talking at length about the procedure with your plastic surgeon. Keep reading for some sample questions to ask your plastic surgeon:
What are Your Credentials?
Your plastic surgeon should be happy to discuss his or her qualifications, including education and residency. In addition, a plastic surgeon who is committed to furthering his or her skills and expertise should have membership in relevant organizations. Additionally, ask the surgeon if he or she is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Ask your plastic surgeon if a particular procedure is right for you. You may be a good candidate if you’re in good overall health, refrain from smoking, and have reasonable expectations for your appearance. Additionally, it’s important to disclose any prior surgeries, underlying medical conditions, and medications or supplements you take.
How is the Procedure Performed?
During your consultation, learn exactly how your procedure will be performed and which techniques will be used. Discuss your anesthesia options, which might include general anesthesia, local anesthesia, or intravenous sedation. Discuss whether you’ve previously had reactions to anesthesia and which choice is the safest one for you.
What Can I Expect During Recovery?
You should begin preparing for your recovery well before the plastic surgery itself. Talk to your surgeon about the length of the recovery and any special measures you need to take for your health, depending on the type of procedure you undergo. For example, if you have liposuction, you’ll wear compression garments for a period of time.
Dr. R. Scott Yarish, M.D., is happy to answer all of your questions about your plastic surgery.
