Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) ranges in price depending on factors that are unique to the individual. On average:

Mini Tummy Tuck Surgery costs $4,850 Standard Tummy Tuck Surgery costs $6,200 Extended Tummy Tuck Surgery costs $7,200

Because techniques and modifications can alter tummy tuck costs, the best way to get an accurate quote is through a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this visit, be sure to find out what is included in the cost of your procedure to make sure you will not be faced with any unexpected fees or charges.

Pregnancy and the Appearance of the Breasts

Breast augmentation improves the size and shape of the bust, producing a look that is more consistent with natural curves and in-line with individual aesthetic desires. Many things can impact the appearance of the breasts, but few as much as pregnancy and nursing. Because of this if you are planning on having children in the future, it is important to discuss these plans with Dr. Fata before moving forward with your breast augmentation procedure. While future pregnancy plans do not rule you out as a candidate for breast augmentation...

Plastic surgery is intended to improve and enhance various area of the body.

Performing these things well, however, is not something that is easy to do.  

Due to the increased...

Dissatisfaction with specific parts of the body is not unique to the adult experience. Perhaps compelled by social media and constant exposure to “influencers” and other “beautiful people,” more and more teens are beginning to consider – and seriously inquire about – the possibility of plastic surgery. The pressure to be perfect in the Age of the Selfie can be profound, and this is something teens and young adults often feel intensely.

For parents of teens approaching this topic, it is very important to remember that the idea of a cosmetic procedure should originate with your teen, not from your suggestion. It is never a good idea...

BOTOX® has shown to be a powerful treatment for men and women who suffer from chronic migraines. By relaxing muscles that compress nerves, BOTOX® injections act as a preventive treatment, helping to stop migraine headaches before they even occur. Different than acute treatment, BOTOX® for migraines does not work immediately, but most patients report marked improvement in comfort after their second treatment.

Acute treatments for migraine headaches address the symptoms. Preventive treatments address the source. When used as intended, typically on a 12-week schedule, BOTOX® works to...

Labiaplasty is designed to restore comfort and appearance to the vaginal area through a gentle reduction of bulky, loose, and sagging labial tissue. Reasons to consider labiaplasty include:

Discomfort when engaged in physical activity Pain from the twisting or pulling of labial tissue Interference with sexual comfort or climax Aesthetics

Elongated labial tissue can make riding a bike, jogging and running, and even the simple task of walking very uncomfortable and may even result in skin conditions, like a rash or open sore, when persistent. Not all women...

Good candidates for liposuction should be:

Nonsmokers In generally good health Within reach of his or her goal weight Prepared for a surgical operation Able to take time off from work and other obligations to recover Willing to follow pre and postoperative directions

While liposuction will remove some weight, it is a body contouring technique, not a safe or effective method of weight loss. Overweight men and women can still have liposuction, but the results will not be as profound as those that can be achieved by...

There is a lot of information about skin care and aging on the internet. Some of it is pretty good. Some of it is pretty bad. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which type of article or blog you’re reading. Unfortunately, much of the advice and information that masquerades as fact can actually cause damage – through ineffective protection from harmful UV rays, poor-quality ingredients, unethical/unsustainable production methods, and much more – making it important that you trust your source of information about skin care and aging.

Below, we tackle some of the most common myths about healthy skin as you age. If you have questions about...

Breast augmentation with implants will require an incision. Common breast augmentation incision options include around the nipple, in the crease between breast and chest, in the armpit, or in the belly button, all areas with features, such as skin tone variation or natural folds, which allow the incisions to be obscured.

Of course, the two options that don’t involve incisions on or underneath the breasts will eliminate the risk of scarring in that area entirely and reduce the risk of visible scarring at all. The tradeoff is fairly unfavorable, however, as the distance...
