Rodeo Drive Tummy Tuck
What I know about plastic surgery is nil, but the people at Rodeo Drive Tummy Tuck seem to know rather a lot.
The clinic's founder, and chief plastic surgeon, is a Dr. Lloyd Krieger. The aim of his clinic is to get away from the "institutional" practices that people are subjected to in other institutions. He believes that you, the patient, should be treated as an informed individual, so although the clinic offers state of the art techniques, your wishes are always respected and your needs taken into account first and foremost.
Dr. Krieger's speciality is abdominoplasty, or to give it the more usual name, the tummy tuck, a procedure often called for after pregnancy or as a result of ageing. Basically the skin is tightened, excess fat is removed and the muscles underneath are tightened up. Combined with liposuction, if needed, the aim is to give you a perfect body shape.
Post-operative discomfort is kept to a minimum, thanks to the local anaesthetics that are used. Don't worry, though, as you will be fast asleep during the procedure, as the locals are just to reduce any pain afterwards. You should be able to resume your normal activities about two weeks after the surgery, which sounds fair enough.
The clinic also offers breast augmentation surgery, and here the aim is to improve both your appearance and self-confidence. Really, I think that you should give these people a ring and discuss your needs.
Given that most people who read this blog live in the UK, you might also want to remember that the USA is seriously cheap for British visitors at the moment, thanks to a dollar that is rapidly becoming an international joke. Why not take the family over to the luxurious surroundings of Beverly Hills, let your husband and children enjoy themselves in sunny California, while you get yourself back into shape?
Gentleman, remember that a man is only as old as the woman he feels, so why not give your wife this present? I suspect that you will enjoy the results!
