What You Should Know About Breast Augmentations
(http://ow.ly/2kBl30n4b00)

Breast augmentation or mammoplasty is surgery to increase breast size. It involves placing breast implants under breast tissue or under chest muscles. This is usually done to enhance your appearance, correct unevenness, adjust size after pregnancy, or improve your self confidence.

Soreness and swelling are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is also possible and you can expect scars to fade over time. You may be prescribed pain medication and you may wear a compression bandage for extra support.

What You Should Know About Liposuction
(http://ow.ly/WrBJ30n4aZY)

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat that you can't get rid of through diet or exercise. This is typically done on your hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, or face. To get liposuction, you should be within 30% of your ideal weight, have firm, elastic skin, and be a non-smoker.

Whether or not you stay the night in the hospital depends on the type of liposuction you had done. You can expect bruising, swelling, and soreness for a few weeks. You may need to wear a compression garment for 1-2 months to help control swelling. You'll also probably be prescribed an antibiotic to help prevent infection.

Are You Considering Lip Enhancement?
(http://ow.ly/B1Oj30n4aZX)

Lip enhancement is a cosmetic procedure to give you fuller, plumper lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used and can improve the appearance of your lips by adding shape, structure, and volume. The effects will typically last around 6 months and more injections are needed to maintain the results.

Juvéderm and Restylane are two common fillers used. The benefits of these fillers are control over lip volume, gradual pace of treatment, bumps dissolve easily, less bruising, reasonably lasting results. Side effects include bleeding from injection site, bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness.

What Do You Know About Tummy Tucks?
(http://ow.ly/xy0V30n4aZW)

Despite being physically fit and in relatively good shape, many people are still bothered by an excess of skin and fat in the abdominal region. To help treat this area, many patients turn to a surgical procedure known as abdominoplasty, also commonly referred to as a tummy tuck.

With a tummy tuck, you may notice a significant reduction in excess abdominal skin and fat, along with a smoother, flatter stomach and lower abdomen area. Visit our website or call 318-209-3796 to learn more about tummy tucks.

Is Rhinoplasty Right For You?
(http://ow.ly/tTP230n4aZV)

Rhinoplasty or a "nose job" is surgery to change the shape of your nose by modifying the bone or cartilage. Rhinoplasty may involve a change in size, change in angle, straightening of the bridge, reshaping the tip, and narrowing of the nostrils to help improve a patient's facial profile.

If you live near Lafayette, Louisiana and would like to find out if rhinoplasty is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Darrell L. Henderson, an experienced plastic surgeon who has been performing rhinoplasties and other procedures for years.

Do You Have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
(http://ow.ly/PSm830n4aZU)

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on your median nerve, which goes through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel and ends in the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive motions of the wrist, conditions like hypothyroidism and arthritis, and pregnancy.

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, you may experience burning, tingling, itching, or numbness in the palm of your hand and thumb, or index and middle fingers. In severe cases, the median nerve begins to lose function due to pressure around it causing slower nerve impulses, loss of feeling in fingers, and loss of strength and coordination. Meet with Dr. Henderson to find the treatment that is right for you.

What Is Blepharoplasty?
(http://ow.ly/N8NV30n4aZT)

Blepharoplasty is also known as eyelid surgery and is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. Eyelid surgery can be done to improve your appearance or repair functional problems with your eyelids.

Blepharoplasty is a great way to treat loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the contour of the eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, bags under the eyes, drooping lower eyelids, excess skin, and similar issues involving the skin around the eyes. Results are long lasting and there is usually little pain but there can be swelling or bruising. It may take a few months to fully heal.
