Recovering from a Tummy Tuck

If you’re scheduled to have a tummy tuck, chances are you aren’t just wondering how you’ll look after surgery, but also what the recovery period will be like. Watch this video for insight into what to expect after a tummy tuck.

Most tummy tucks are performed on an outpatient basis. Although you may feel well enough to be up and moving the following day, you will need to avoid lifting anything over 20 pounds for the next two to three weeks. It’s advisable to take a week or two off of work to recover.

R. Scott Yarish, MD and the entire Town & Country Plastic Surgery team are always available to answer your questions about your surgical procedure. To learn more about our services, please call (713) 568-3257.

Obagi 360 System

obagi 360 houstonProcedure(s) I had done:

I am using the Obagi 360 Kit.

Why I wanted this procedure:

I'm almost 30 and have never really taken care of my skin or gotten in the habit of having a skin care routine. I decided it was time to take preventative action before anything major happened or I did more damage. It doesn't help that the girls at work lecture me on proper skin care, products, and maintenance all the time! Since the Obagi 360 Kit is so easy to use, I thought it would be a perfect segway for me to get into a routine and using the right products.

Tell us about the day of your procedure:

The first day I woke up in the morning and thought, "Oh great! I actually have to do stuff!" Had I known how simple it would be, I would've started this routine years ago! The first step for both morning and night is to wash my face with the Exfoliating Cleanser. I have eczema and very dry and sensitive skin, so I was worried about the tiny beads being too harsh. That wasn't the case at all. It felt really gentle and the cleanser contains papaya extract so it smelled amazing! The second step was to apply HydraFactor, their moisturizer and broad-spectrum moisturizer in one. When I put the moisturizer on it felt really hydrating but it stung on my cheeks for about 20 min. This may also be due to the fact that my face wasn't used to being washed, let alone exfoliated. Other than that I really liked it. That night, after using the cleanser, the second step was the Retinol 0.5. I was worried this would irritate my skin because I had never used a Retinol before, but it was really gentle and went on smooth.

Day 1 After Procedure:

The first day after I used the Retinol I had a couple spots of redness and irritation, but that could have been from being in the sun and sweating also. It really wasn't anything bad. I was told I could use the Retinol every other day if it bothered me. My skin already felt so much better and smoother from just sloughing off all that dead skin and makeup with the exfoliator.

Day 2 After Procedure

The second day I was actually excited to wake up and use my products! The cleanser just smells so good! Even though Day 2 was a Saturday, I forced myself to wash my face and put on my Retinol before bed. Although two steps seems like nothing, it's way too easy for me to just go to bed, makeup and all.

Day 3 After Procedure

By the 3rd night I had this routine down! It was so simple, and I was already starting to see my face brightening up a little bit. I guess that happens when you wash your face on a daily basis!

Day 4 After Procedure

Day 4 was a Monday morning, all the redness from the Retinol was gone and I was getting in the habit of grabbing my cleanser from my sink and taking it to the shower. I used my HydraFactor, applied makeup and was out the door. It still stings a little but I've gotten sued to it, and there's no redness or irritation that follows.

Day 5 After Procedure

I'm starting to see an improvement in the texture of my skin. I have a few large pores that are shrinking and it's so soft. I'm impressed with how fast I'm seeing results.

Day 6 After Procedure

I am still having issues with red, flaky patches from the Retinol but they're not as bad.

Week 3 After Procedure

I've been using my Obagi 360 Kit for 3 weeks now. I have seen some differences in the texture and overall appearance of my skin. I've had to cut back on using both the Retinol and the Exfoliating Scrub 3 times a week. I think it was too much to exfoliate my skin twice a day. I substituted in Obagi Gentle Cleanser during the days I don't exfoliate. My skin is still purging from the Retinol but it's clearing up and getting brighter.

Week 6 After Procedure

After 6 weeks of using the Obagi 360 Kit I have had my ups and downs. The pay off was completely worth it! My skin is completely clear, the texture is smooth, and the overall tone is brighter. My freckles are almost gone and I now have a glow.

What advice would I give to another patient having this procedure?

My advice to people using this kit, especially if you are a proper skin care novice like myself, would be to be patient. You have to let your skin go through an adjustment period and purge. It may not be pretty but the end result is worth it!

Get the Facts about Gynecomastia

Plastic Surgeon HoustonSome men have enlarged glandular tissues that create male breasts, which is a condition known as gynecomastia. If you are suffering with this condition and feel self-conscious about your chest, your plastic surgeon serving Houston, Dr. R. Scott Yarish can surgically reshape the area. Keep reading to learn more about the condition and the best treatment options.

Causes of Gynecomastia
This condition can develop in infancy or in puberty. When a male has certain hormonal issues in the body, it might result in more estrogen, a female hormone, than male hormones, which can lead to an increase in the size of the glandular tissue in the breast area. Gynecomastia might also be a side effect of drug use or medical conditions like hyperthyroidism, chronic kidney failure, or cirrhosis of the liver.

Symptoms of Gynecomastia
The most noticeable symptom of gynecomastia is enlarged breast tissue, but it does not always happen on both sides of the body. If you notice any enlargement around the nipple area on one or both sides of your chest, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Yarish to learn about possible treatments that can reshape the area for a more masculine physique.

Treatments for Gynecomastia
In younger males, this condition tends to disappear on its own. If it develops after puberty, though, a plastic surgeon will often need to look for alternative treatments. If the condition is a side effect of medication use, you might have to stop taking that medication. Dr. Yarish can use methods like liposuction, excision, or a combination of the two to decrease breast size and help you feel better about your appearance.

Whether you have gynecomastia or are interested in other cosmetic procedure, R. Scott Yarish, MD can help you get the physique you want. As one of Houston’s top plastic surgeons, Dr. Yarish has the experience and the expertise to get you the results you’re looking for.
