    Common Reasons Why People Get Breast Augmentation

    Last updated 15 hours ago

    There are a variety of reasons why women may opt for breast augmentation, and they can be more complex and personal than many realize. Oftentimes, the decision to get a breast augmentation is the result of careful planning and consideration.

    For many women, electing to get breast augmentation is about increasing their self-esteem and self-confidence. Others feel that their breast size is inadequate, while some desire to make both breasts more equal in size and shape when one is larger than the other. For women who have undergone mastectomies due to breast cancer or other medical conditions, breast augmentation offers them the opportunity to reconstruct their breasts and lead a more normal life.

    If you are considering undergoing a breast augmentation, contact Blackhawk Plastic Surgery at (925) 272-4855.

    Answers to Your FAQs about Hair Restoration

    Last updated 14 days ago

    If you are experiencing hair loss or recession, today’s state-of-the-art plastic surgery procedures can offer natural-looking results with very little recovery time. Follicular Unit Extraction hair restoration uses no sutures, long incisions, or plugs. Take a look below for the answers to your questions about this exciting and effective procedure offered by Blackhawk Plastic Surgery.

    What Is Follicular Unit Extraction?
    Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is a new technique for restoring the hairline. This procedure uses a small punch to extract tiny hair grafts of only a few hairs each. Hair grafts are placed using a small needle stick and require no sutures during recovery. There is no scarring, no need for prolonged bandaging, and no general anesthesia—a local anesthetic is sufficient during the procedure.

    What Can I Expect From Follicular Unit Extraction?

    Patients enjoy very little post-procedural discomfort and a fast recovery period so they can enjoy their new look sooner. Upon leaving your plastic surgeon’s office, there is no obvious evidence of a hair transplant. You can expect some redness to last for a few days, and any discomfort can be managed with over the counter mediation. Antibiotics are generally not required following an FUE procedure. Post-operative instructions include washing your hair carefully following the instructions of your plastic surgeon and avoiding sun exposure for a few weeks. You can resume most normal activities, including exercise, immediately, but you will need to avoid activities that rub against the scalp for approximately ten days.

    Who Can Get Follicular Unit Extraction?

    FUE treatment is appropriate for both men and women. Patients suffering from hair loss due to natural balding or injury to the scalp can benefit from this procedure. In addition, some patients choose FUE to correct a naturally high hairline not associated with hair loss.

    Could you be a good candidate for FUE hair restoration at Blackhawk Plastic Surgery? You can schedule your consultation with Dr. Ronan by calling (925) 272-4855.

    A Look at the Calf Liposuction Procedure

    Last updated 18 days ago

    A lack of definition in the lower leg can cause embarrassment when wearing shorts, bathing suits, and skirts. While diet and exercise are effective in reducing the overall fat content of the body, it is impossible to target specific areas for improvement. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your lower legs, calf liposuction can provide a sculpted, defined calf and ankle. During calf liposuction, excess fatty tissue is removed from the lower legs through small incisions made at the ankle and knee. After the procedure, you may experience prolonged swelling in the legs. Swelling can be reduced by wearing compression hose in the weeks following your liposuction procedure. Once the swelling abates, you will enjoy shapelier, sculpted lower legs that you will be pleased to show off.

    Are you displeased with the look of your lower legs? Call Dr. Stephen J. Ronan at (925) 272-4855 to learn more about liposuction and other cosmetic procedures for the body and face.
