Patient's Touching Surgical Story

It's rare when someone reveals themselves openly and honestly. Even more so when it's done publicly. Yet, this is exactly what one of Dr. Young's patients decided to do when she shared her story on an Internet site designed to give helpful information to those interested in breast implants.

"Anonymous" has been making news with her detailed account of why she decided to get breast implants at 49 years of age, and what her experiences were in selecting a surgeon, having the surgery, and her recovery experience. 

We're asked all the time, "What should I expect?", and it's a great question. Women wanting breast augmentation, whether they're 25 or 55 need answers that will help them make an informed decision that they will be happy with. It's something we strive to deliver to patients when they come to see Dr. Young for a consultation visit. Decisions go beyond selecting the right size, what recovery is like or when you can return to work, and some, in fact, wrestle with whether the procedure is "okay" to have at all.

I think "Anonymous" explains it well, and can serve as a good resource to anyone considering a breast augmentation or other cosmetic plastic surgery procedure. "Anonymous" gave an incredibly candid and frank account of her very personal and moving story of her decision to pursue Breast Augmentation following a battle with lymphoma. Her message is inspiring, and we thank her for sharing her heart-felt story with others.

Brazilian Butt Lift Gaining Popularity in San Antonio

After airing on the Extreme Makeover television show several years ago, the Brazilian Butt Lift has gained in popularity. We've seen a big increase in interest from women in San Antonio.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves suctioning fat from other areas of the body, especially the hips, and after processing the fat, the fat is injected into the buttock area. The procedure works by narrowing the waist with the liposuction and increasing the buttock fullness.

About 50% of the fat survives and will become a part of the body. The procedure can be repeated several times depending on the ultimate size of the buttock the patient desires. The patients usually must have a moderate amount of fat on them otherwise a buttock implant has to be used. The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours depending on how much fat is removed and is done as an outpatient. Most patients can return to work in several days.

Other areas patients often select for liposuction are the abdomen, hips, thighs and back, and allow for nice body contouring of the mid to lower body. We are often able to obtain a beautiful hour glass shape where there was excess fat and little definition before. The results can be quite dramatic. The cases below are just a few of the women who have come to Dr. Young for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
