Men and women all over Dallas are often met with stubborn pockets of fat they can’t seem to get rid of, no matter what they try. This diet. That diet. Cardio. Weight training. Nothing seems to do the trick for those last few inches. It can be downright frustrating!
Dr. Hopkins has worked with so many Dallas women on breast procedures during his 20 years of surgical experience, that he understands that women getting a breast augmentation are hoping to see their final results quickly. But as a plastic surgeon, it’s Dr. Hopkins’ duty to provide you with honest and accurate information. And the truth is, it could take up to 3 months for you to see your final surgical results after you’ve had implants placed.
Having realistic expectations for your upcoming plastic surgery procedure is extremely important. In fact, Dr. Hopkins requires all his patients to communicate to him that they understand what they can expect – and what they shouldn’t anticipate – from the results of their procedures before he’ll book them on his surgery schedule. The reason – as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Hopkins has a duty to make sure his patients are as prepared for their procedures as possible, and that they truly know what they can expect from surgery.
Getting a mommy makeover is an exciting time for Dallas moms. After putting their children and their families first for years, these moms are finally taking a little “me time” to focus on their own bodies and overall health. Dr. Hopkins understands just how satisfied local moms can be when they’re finally able to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies through plastic surgery. But if you want to stay just as happy for years to come, there are a few things you’ll need to do to maintain these surgical results.
Many Dallas women don’t realize it, but when you choose to have a breast augmentation, one of the decisions you’ll need to make is whether to have them placed subglandularly (under your breast tissue, but over your chest muscle) or submuscularly (under both your breast tissue and chest muscle). Each has its own set of advantages, as well as specific reasons why women choose one option over the other. Keep reading to learn more.

A traditional mommy makeover procedure is one in which a Dallas mom undergoes a breast augmentation and tummy tuck during one surgical event.

Are you a Dallas woman who wishes her bust was a little bit bigger, and that her breasts weren’t heading south? It’s common for women to experience some degree of breast ptosis, the medical term for breast sagging, especially after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and just as a general body change that comes from aging. But is a breast augmentation the answer to both problems?
Many Dallas men and women seem to easily gain and lose weight in their abdomen. These yo-yo abdominal changes can leave some local residents with abdomens that have loose and hanging abdominal skin that won’t naturally “snap back” into shape despite the patient’s commitment to a strict diet and exercise regime. Sometimes, the best way to reshape your abdomen isn’t to continue a diet that just isn’t working, but to turn to local plastic surgeon Dr. Hopkins of J. Hopkins Plastic Surgery for a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty.
