    Common Reasons for Tattoo Removal

    Last updated 2 days 19 hours ago

    Tattoos have become overwhelmingly popular among millennials, but the permanence of a tattoo is not always recognized by individuals who are looking for ways to declare their independence in their 20s. If you got a tattoo earlier in life and are now feeling the sting of regret, you are not alone in this desire. There are many reasons people choose to have tattoos and just about as many reasons people have tattoos removed. Here is a look at just a handful of the most common reasons someone might opt for tattoo removal

    Lifestyle changes

    Many people get tattoos to preserve a certain memory or celebrate a relationship, but these memories may not be something you want to cherish as you get older. If you have a tattoo of your ex’s name, for example, you might not want a reminder of that past relationship imprinted on your skin. For some people, transitioning to a more professional environment or starting a family might make some tattoos appear inappropriate.

    Tattoo stigmas

    While tattoos have gained popularity to the point where one in four adults between 18 and 30 has at least one tattoo, there is still significant stigma against tattoos. Some workplaces, including schools and customer service industries, are not welcoming of tattoos. Tattoos may also create a negative body image or embarrassment that can cause a person to want the ink removed.

    Changes in skin and body shape

    A tattoo may be permanent, but youthful skin is not. Weight gain or sagging skin might distort a tattoo you once loved. Plus, tattoos can require a lifetime of maintenance to keep looking vibrant and artistic rather than faded and warped.

    Regardless of your reason for considering tattoo removal, Dr. Yarish of Town and Country Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa can help you erase an unwanted tattoo with sophisticated laser treatment that can target all types of tattoo ink and colors.

    The Impact of Plastic Surgery on Your Self-Esteem

    Last updated 9 days ago

    Plastic surgery is a powerful way to change your outward appearance, but how does it change you on the inside? If you’re been feeling less than your best because you’re not confident in your appearance, the biggest changes from plastic surgery may actually be to your self-esteem.

    Research has indicated that, after plastic surgery, most patients feel a boost in their self-esteem thanks to the changes in their appearance. This can be especially true for people who have plastic surgery to address age-related changes in their faces and bodies. The self-esteem benefits of plastic surgery can help you face your career and relationships with increased confidence and satisfaction. While plastic surgery is not a cure for chronic low self-worth, it can have distinct psychological benefits. 

    If you’re considering plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with R. Scott Yarish, MD to discuss your treatment goals and to see which plastic surgery procedure could be right for you. Make your appointment at our clinic today by calling (713) 568-3257. 

    Understanding the Breast Uplift Procedure

    Last updated 16 days ago

    Breast lift surgeries have surpassed breast implants in popularity, according to new statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. With a breast uplift procedure, you will not add volume to the breasts, but you can restore their youthful perkiness and shape. Over time, the breasts naturally begin to sag and change shape, which can stretch out the areola as well. These changes could take a toll on your confidence and create issues finding properly fitting undergarments and clothing. Since the breasts tend to undergo the most dramatic changes during pregnancy, breast lifts are most popular with new moms planning complete mommy makeover procedures. This article will offer more details of breast uplift to help you decide if it’s the right procedure for you. 

    Patient qualifications

    Patients who are candidates for beast uplift will be at a healthy weight and do not smoke. Causes for surgery might include breasts that are at unequal heights, nipples that fall below the breast crease, or insecurity caused by sagging or pendulous breasts.

    Surgical goals

    Breast lift surgery not only lifts the breasts, but it also reshapes the breast tissue for more symmetry. The areola may also be reshaped to reverse the stretching effect that sagging breasts have had over time. Breast lift may also be combined with reduction or augmentation if you are unhappy with the size of your breasts.

    Steps in the procedure

    Incisions for breast lift are made along the natural contour of the lower breast crease and the border of the areola. This makes scarring minimally visible after the healing process and allows for the removal of excess skin where necessary.

    If you are considering a breast uplift, Dr. Yarish at Town and Country Plastic Surgery can tailor your results to exceed your surgical expectations. You can make your first consultation at our Houston office on our website or by calling (713) 568-3257.
