Welcome!
Social media is unavoidable for nearly everyone these days, and the Millennial generation is comprised of what social media experts refer to as “ digital natives .” These young people grew up being surrounded by computers and the internet, they’ve lived more of their lives online than any previous generation, and now they are old enough to make the
Most women are aware of cellulite - they’re familiar with the cottage cheese bumpiness that appears on the backs of people’s hips, thighs, and behind. It’s unsightly, and no one appreciates it, but what is it exactly, why do people get it, and what can you do about it? Cellulite is nothing to worry about medically. It’s normal fat that exists below
How pregnancy and childbearing affect a woman’s figure will always be relevant to women who desire plastic surgery because of their desire to remain beautiful over time. Last month we discussed how pregnancy can affect a tummy tuck , and this time we will talk about how it affects breast augmentation. Many young women who make the investment of bre
Many of the patients who we see are women who are within the age range society calls “childbearing,” which means that sometimes the results that they get from plastic surgery may later be altered by the changes that pregnancy and breastfeeding bring about. Previously we’ve talked about repairing the damage that aging and pregnancy have caused with
Previously we’ve discussed some common misperceptions about liposuction , particularly the ideas that liposuction is a form of weight loss or that it will eliminate having to maintain a healthy weight after the procedure is done. It is important to note that the results of a liposuction procedure are typically long term when patients follow the pro
We are all familiar with a certain type of breasts from mass media, but breasts come in a variety of sizes and shapes in nature. They can be large and small, matching or uneven, round, tuberous or conical. While Dr. Feldman sees many patients who wish to have bigger breasts, plenty of other women who will eventually have breast augmentation surgery
Previously we’ve talked about how people age differently . Some just seem to have won the genetic lottery, looking young and vital for decades past their twenties, and others begin to lose their hair before they are even out of their teens. Everyone’s journey is different, and where we begin that journey is different as well. Unfortunately, we don’
The patients we see at Bancroft Feldman are so passionate about their bodies and excited to have the opportunity to eliminate flaws and improve themselves aesthetically. Breast augmentation - and all plastic surgery - is an investment in yourself and how you present yourself to the world. It would make sense, then, that anyone who’s had surgery wou
One of the questions we hear at Bancroft Feldman is how soon after my surgery can I tan - either in a tanning bed or outside? We understand that our patients are excited about their new look. They want to put on a bathing suit, go to the beach, or add color to their skin to help along the aesthetic they’re creating. However, tanning and breas
For decades scare-tactic articles about breast implants have proliferated in the news and media, linking them to cancer or other dire health consequences, including autoimmune diseases. Over the last four decades, research and patient experience have proven breast implants to be safe, but that doesn’t mean that they will last forever and never have
Several years ago all of the news outlets were reporting on the new trend of getting “ vacation breasts implants .” A plastic surgeon in New York, Dr. Norman Rowe, developed a procedure that consists of injecting saline into breast tissue. For a short period - from a few days to up to three weeks, before the body absorbs and excretes the extra wate
One piece of advice a surgeon will give any patient facing surgery is to cease all smoking before the procedure is scheduled to be done. Casual smokers will not find this to be so burdensome, but regular smokers may object to quitting their habit. Still, this is not frivolous advice. Let’s examine why. When you smoke, the nicotine your body a
Aging isn’t always a bad thing. Many people embrace the good things that come with age like financial security, wisdom, experience, and deepening relationships. The physical side of aging is one most people would rather put off, however. No one looks forward to sagging skin or breasts, wrinkles, hair loss, cellulite, or stretch marks. Some people m
Recognized as Top Social Influencer in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Houston, TX – March 1, 2016 – Local physician Dr. Evan M Feldman, MD, FACS is one of 100 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 100 Award , out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf —the leading online community helping pe
The media likes to highlight bad plastic surgery, particularly celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery with less than ideal outcomes. They take pictures and post them with glee, and many women wonder why these people who have so many resources available to them have this happen. Is it because anyone who undergoes breast augmentation is doome
Generation Y, or Millennials as they are sometimes called, has been easing into adulthood for awhile. This is the generation that was born between the 1980s and the beginning of the twenty-first century. By 2020, in fact, one out of three American adults will belong to this generation, and they are already making their preferences and desires known
When the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery released their figures in 2015, they noted one specific trend: plastic surgery for men was up 43% over five years. This includes all cosmetic procedures, including surgical and non-surgical options. In 2014 the top five surgical procedures for both men and women were: liposuction , breast augm
Do you have a New Year’s resolution? This is the time of year everyone asks you that question. The old year is coming to an end, and we see an opportunity to “start fresh.” Many people begin every year resolving to better themselves so they will be able to live happier, healthier lives. Do you recognize any of these common resolut
It may seem strange to put the words gift and surgery in the same sentence, but many plastic surgeons are noticing an increase both in the number of patients who receive “procedure gifts” and the number who choose to extend their own positive self-improvement experience to loved ones. In a large number of these cases, the procedure in question is s
Plastic surgery has changed quite a bit through the years in terms of who is seeking what and why and also how those procedures are performed. It might seem like people seeking to be beautiful would be a constant, but, as with everything else, the only constant is change. According to the statistics kept by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons,
