13909094_10153707609411611_5442076837398798621_o-200x300 Your Dallas Female Breast Implants Plastic Surgeon Dallas Plastic SurgeonBreast implant cosmetic surgery is a personal journey for a woman. She should choose a surgeon with whom she is able to develop a marvelous rapport and a relationship of trust and open communication.

While surgical advancements have made breast implant procedure safer and more effective, the choice of a breast surgeon continues to be the single most important factor to influence the results. Dr. Farah Naz Khan is a board certified female plastic surgeon providing breast implant surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Board Certification

Dr. Khan has been board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), which is the most authoritative board in the field. She is also a member of the prestigious American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Her board certification automatically assures the patient that the surgeon would have received a minimum of five years of medical training, out of which at least two years devoted exclusively to plastic surgery training.

Board certified surgeons would invest in cutting edge surgical technology and techniques, pursue continuing education, maintain the best practices and standards, and follow the latest safety protocols.

Innovation in Breast Implant Surgery

Dr. Khan will customize the breast implant cosmetic surgery procedure to match with the unique anatomical and aesthetic needs of the patient. This allows her to make the procedure less invasive and more effective, and the results are more sustainable and natural looking.

Dr. Khan has introduced innovations in breast implant surgery, which enable her to perform the procedure using smaller incisions. This reduces the risk of complications, lowers discomfort and dramatically minimizes the recovery period. Dr. Khan’s special technique breast implant surgery involves a 24-hour recovery.

Dr. Khan recognizes the needs of working women, busy moms and others who want reduced downtime so that they can return to their normal routine as early as possible. With her unique 24-hour recovery breast augmentation, Dr. Khan is able to achieve far higher patient satisfaction levels.

Cutting-edge Technique

Breast implant surgeons mostly use the blunt dissection technique to create a breast pocket to accommodate the implant. Dr. Khan, however, creates the pocket using the innovative needlepoint electrocautery. In other words, she creates the breast pocket without tearing the tissue or allowing any rib cage bleeding to take place.

This innovative technique helps avoid or minimize chest wall trauma and pain that patients usually experience during the post-operative phase after breast implant surgery. As a result, Dr. Khan’s patients can expect to have a rapid, 24-hour recovery after breast implant surgery.

Combining Art and Science

Dr. Khan believes that most satisfying outcomes in breast implant surgery can be achieved when the surgeon combines the principles of both science and art. She will focus not just on increasing the size of the breasts, but also to ensure that they are shapely, firm, symmetrical, and proportionate to the rest of the body.

Patient’s long-term health and physical attractiveness are carefully balanced to ensure optimal results. Therefore, patients can expect to achieve predictable, sustainable, and natural looking breast implant outcomes with her. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Khan receives patients from Dallas, Texas, and nearby areas.

What is THE REAL Mommy Makeover?

THE REAL Mommy Makeover

RealMommymakeover-300x134 What is THE REAL Mommy Makeover? Dallas Plastic SurgeonAs a board certified plastic surgeon, I love transforming the lives of my patients. Traditional mommy makeovers include cosmetic breast and abdominal surgery to enhance, lift, tighten, sculpt, and contour bodies to help women look and feel their very best. Most surgeons, however, do not address the vaginal changes that women experience post-pregnancy.  To address this gap, I collaborated with a friend and colleague of mine, Dr. Wesley Anne Brady, a renowned board certified cosmetic gynecologist. Together, we developed the concept of THE REAL Mommy Makeover, a comprehensive mommy makeover that addresses ALL of your body’s changes post-pregnancy.  Together, we provide cosmetic breast, body, and vaginal surgeries in a comfortable and luxurious space with an all female staff.  And together, we perform these surgeries safely in one operative setting so our patients have one recovery and one complete transformation!

THE REAL Mommy Makeover addresses ALL of your body’s changes post-pregnancy.

As two busy women with equally demanding personal and professional lives, Dr. Brady and I understand all too well how easy it is to take care of everyone else around us except for ourselves! Take some time for you and come visit us for a complimentary joint consultation to see how a customized REAL Mommy Makeover can change the way you look, feel, and experience intimacy. Our patients often say their only regret is that they didn’t come see us sooner!

Breast Lift Surgery Overview

shutterstock_93812107-300x300 Breast Lift Surgery Overview Dallas Plastic SurgeonAs a woman ages, her skin will tend to lose elasticity, which can cause the breasts to sag. If the droopiness in the breasts becomes severe, the woman may consider breast lift cosmetic surgery. Breast lift is designed to tighten and firm up the breasts, and restore a more youthful breast appearance.

Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan, provides breast lift and various other procedures of the breast, body and face. Dr. Khan will customize the procedure according to the unique anatomical and aesthetic needs of the patient. She provides breast lift to patients in Dallas, Texas and surrounding communities.

 

Candidates

Any woman who is bothered by the appearance of heavily sagging breasts and downward pointing nipples may make a tremendous candidate for breast lift cosmetic surgery. Some women may experience sagging of breasts at a relatively younger age, following pregnancy, or after undergoing a major weight loss.

Among older women, those with a reasonable degree of skin elasticity will achieve better outcomes. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend breast lift in conjunction with breast implants to achieve desirable results.

 

Surgical Techniques

A number of surgical techniques are used to perform breast lift. The surgeon will recommend the most appropriate technique according to the patient’s needs.

 

Standard Technique

The standard breast lift technique involves the use of an anchor-shaped incision. An incision will be created around the circumference of the areola, a second incision vertically down to the base of the breast, and a third incision horizontally alone the breast crease.

Some amount of scarring will occur with this technique, but an expert surgeon will be able to keep it discreet. Significant amount of sagging in the lower half of the breast can be reduced with this technique. Women with smaller breasts usually benefit more from this technique, but it can also be used for women with larger breasts.

 

Doughnut Mastopexy

This technique involves placing the incision around the circumference of the areola. The amount of skin removal in this technique will be lesser than that in the case of a standard breast lift. If the areola is enlarged or misshaped, it can also be corrected along with breast lift.

The doughnut breast lift is less invasive, involves reduced discomfort, and faster recovery. Scarring is also minimal in this technique. However, the technique is more suitable only for women with smaller breasts, and may not be appropriate for women with larger breasts.

 

Lollipop Lift

A lollipop breast lift falls somewhere in-between the standard and doughtnut breast lift techniques. Also called vertical mastopexy, this technique will involve an incision around the areola. A smaller incision will then be placed vertically down to the breast crease.

The technique is effective when the breasts are moderately saggy. Scarring will be relatively lesser as compared to the standard lift procedure. At the same time, the surgeon will have greater flexibility than in the case of doughnut mastopexy to perform the lift and raise the breasts to a more youthful position.

Dr. Khan is a board certified female plastic surgeon who receives patients from Dallas, Texas and nearby areas for breast lift and various other procedures.

 

Recovery

Most patients will experience mild pain and soreness in the incision areas in the first week. The surgeon may prescribe pain medications to keep the patient comfortable. Regular activities can be resumed in about 10 to 14 days in most cases. Vigorous exercises and heavy lifting of weights should be avoided for about one month. This is not the time to try to lift 3 gallons of milk all at once either.

The Truth behind the so-called “Vampire” Facelift®…

vampire-4-clipart-177x300 The Truth behind the so-called “Vampire” Facelift®… Dallas Plastic SurgeonLeave it to the Kardashians to popularize a procedure Allure magazine recently called “overrated”. As a female plastic surgeon practicing in Dallas, I often get asked about the Vampire FaceLift®. With images of Dracula swirling in my head, the questions come flying at me in rapid succession: Does it work? Isn’t it safer than other fillers? And perhaps more importantly, does it have stem cells that can naturally stimulate new skin?

I’ll have to admit that the procedure name alone scared me away. But after getting asked the above questions on a daily basis, especially after Kim Kardashian underwent the procedure, I figured I would research the topic further and figure out what’s true and supported by data.

Proponents of the Vampire FaceLift® say that it combines the science of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm® or Restylane®, with your body’s own growth factors to help create new skin (Please see my previous blog titled “Facial Fillers vs. Botulinism toxins” for more information about HA fillers). The Vampire Facelift® Procedure™ involves initially injecting hyaluronic acid fillers to add volume and/or sculpt certain areas of your face. Once this is done, a solution known as plasma rich platelets, or PRP, is injected to help initiate wound healing and the eventual formation of collagen (a key structural protein found in skin). PRP is derived from your own blood and contains platelets, proteins, and growth factors that all contribute towards the wound healing process.

While it would make sense that patients who have delayed or impaired wound healing (i.e. diabetics) could benefit from PRP, the vast majority of patients with normal wound healing will initiate the healing process on their own as soon as they are injected with hyaluronic acid fillers. That is the beauty of the human body…it will initiate the wound healing process as soon as the skin is violated with an injection needle. Furthermore, by combining PRP with hyaluronic acid fillers, who can determine if PRP is really responsible for the younger and plumper appearing skin?? There are no independent studies proving PRP’s cosmetic benefits but one thing is for sure…it’ll easily add about $1000 to the cost of your filler treatment. So until we have hard data showing the benefits of PRP in individuals with normal wound healing, I say it’s best to stick with the proven, FDA-approved wrinkle fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®. Your face AND wallet will thank you!!!

Cheers to good health,

Sunscreen 101

SunSmiley Sunscreen 101 Dallas Plastic SurgeonAs a female plastic surgeon practicing in the warm, sunny Dallas area, I get this question a lot from my patients: “Is there a specific sunscreen that I should be using on a daily basis?”…The answer: of course! But first things first, I’m just glad that most people recognize the importance of using sunscreen. So since we all agree on its importance, I figure my job here is to educate y’all (and yes, I tend to slip back into my southern roots at times!) on what to look for in a good sunscreen. With the hundreds and thousands of products out there, how the heck are you supposed to choose just one? I think this topic is especially fitting since I’m sitting outside by the pool in the middle of February as I write this up…and you can bet your bottom dollar that I’m wearing my sunscreen!

Having trained as a physician-scientist from Duke University, I can’t help but to bring in a little background information about skin and sun damage. As most of you know, your skin is the largest organ in the body. It serves as a protective barrier (think of it as the first line of defense!) and its health and appearance is determined by both external, environmental factors as well as its internal composition. The sun is your largest environmental exposure and while it helps sustain life, it also emits UVA and UVB rays that penetrate your skin and cause damage to cells and DNA. On the surface, this damage usually appears as fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration and/or skin laxity. But what’s more disturbing is that by damaging and/or altering your cells and DNA, it can also lead to skin cancer.

Sunscreens typically contain physical UV-reflecting ingredients, chemical UV-absorbing ingredients, or a combination of both. Physical reflecting ingredients, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, work by scattering or deflecting UV light. The UV-absorbing chemicals work by absorbing high-energy ultraviolet rays and releasing the energy as low-energy rays. However, some chemicals may actually generate free radicals and this can cause further damage and skin irritation. Physical sunscreens are generally thought to be better tolerated by most skin types.

Most people think that the best sunscreens have a high SPF number. SPF, or sun protection factor, measures the amount of time one is protected from UVB rays that cause sunburn. Remember, however, that the sun also emits UVA rays that do not cause reddening or pain. Therefore, a good sunscreen should be “broad-spectrum” to provide coverage from the entire spectrum of both UVA and UVB radiation.

So…what qualities should you look for in a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen? Since I have sensitive skin, I prefer physical sunscreens. Ideally, the sunscreen should be thin and lightweight so it doesn’t leave a white, pasty tint. All sunscreens typically have to be reapplied but if it’s water-resistant, it will last longer, especially if you are living in a hot, sweaty environment like Dallas. And because no one likes to block their skin pores on purpose, look for non-comedogenic on the label.

skinceuticals-sunscreen-fusion6-185x300 Sunscreen 101 Dallas Plastic SurgeonOk, so if you’re sitting there fretting about having to find a good, lightweight, broad-spectrum, water-resistant, and non-comedogenic physical sunscreen, fret no more! I’ve done the research and my go to sunscreen is SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50: 100% physical, broad-spectrum, water/sweat resistant, non-comedogenic, paraben and chemical-filter free, and lightweight…and the coolest part??? It has a sheer, natural tint that blends in with ALL skin tones so there is no residual white, pasty skin streaking. This lets you apply and blend your makeup effortlessly. For those who prefer a transparent sunscreen (and yes, I’m talking to all you guys out there!), Skinceuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 does the trick! Remember, the sun doesn’t discriminate so both guys and gals need to protect themselves. And to make it even easier for y’all, our office is now carrying both products. So what are you waiting for? Take a step in the right direction and commit yourself to protecting your skin. Your skin will thank-you!!!
