The Cure to Motherhood Blues: 3 Reasons to Consider a Breast Augmentation
Let’s face it, the last thing you want to hear about your breasts is that they resemble more of a raisin than anything else. However, after years or even months of breastfeeding, your breasts may, unfortunately, hang a little lower and look more like a deflated balloon than you care to admit. Luckily, that’s where we at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants come in. If you have never considered getting a breast augmentation until now and still aren’t sure if it’s the right procedure for you, consider the following.
The Stigma is Vanishing
It used to be that only women who wanted to look more like Barbie than a real person would get breast implants. However, with more natural implants and better surgeons, that stigma has quickly gone away. If you are worried that you are going to look “plastic” after getting a breast augmentation, discuss those concerns with one of our surgeons. We will make sure that you get the right shape, look, and feel of breasts that will give you a natural look.
You Need to Take Care of You
As a mother, you do everything for your kids and rarely take the time to do things for yourself— can you even remember the last time you took a long shower? Now is the time to do something just for you that will give you your confidence back. A breast augmentation will help you get your pre-baby body back and maybe even climb back into that bikini— or at least attempt to.
They Will Look Natural
As mentioned above, your breast implants don’t have to look like two melons sitting on your chest. In fact, that’s the last thing we want you to go home looking like. With gummy bear implants, in particular, you can get natural looking breasts that won’t be so obvious.
You do endless piles of laundry, are constantly covered in spit-up (and who knows what else), and your breasts are, well, a bit sadder than they used to be; you deserve a breast augmentation. If you would like to learn more about this surgery or if you would like to schedule a consultation, contact Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants today!

How to Recover from Mohs
Nobody is excited to hear that they have cancer. However, there are some cancers that are better to hear you have than others. As a less invasive form of cancer, skin cancer is typically easily treatable, and there isn’t much recovery involved. As one of the most precise forms of skin cancer treatment, Mohs is a surgery that involves removing individuals layers of skin to evaluate them for cancerous cells. Because Mohs is a surgical procedure that is noninvasive, it can be done in our outpatient facility in just a few hours with the assistance of a local anesthetic. As one of the most important parts of any surgical procedure, it’s important to know how to recover from it. Read on to learn more.
Following your Mohs surgery, you may experience some bleeding at the wound and some pain at the surgical site. To help combat this pain while in recovery, you may be given a painkiller like Ibuprofen to help ease any discomfort. If you have a history of addiction, be sure to tell one of our surgeons or staff.
Avoid the Sun
Once you find out you have skin cancer, the last thing you are going to want to do is go lay out in the sun. As the primary cause of skin cancer, the sun is going to be considered your worse enemy while you are recovery from Mohs. By making your skin more sensitive, Mohs will only increase the likelihood that you will burn and scar after sun exposure. If you do have to go outside, make sure to cover up your wound.
Clean Your Wound
Depending on the severity of your Mohs surgery, you may or may not be given stitches. To protect you against developing an infection, it’s important that you properly clean your wound every day. Following your surgery, you will be given a packet detailed with information on how to clean and care for your wound. If you notice any extreme inflammation, redness, or pus at the incision site, contact our office right away.
