The abdominal muscles are conjoined and held together by tendons, ligaments, and tissues. Comprised of various muscles, in their ideal state the abdominal muscles stay tight and joined together. However, diastasis recti is the separation of these muscles. This can occur in a variety of ways. For example, some diastasis recti only affect the top or bottom abdominal muscles. While not dangerous, diastasis recti often require surgical correction, which a tummy tuck can provide. Patients usually wonder, “can a mini tummy tuck fix diastasis recti?”
The answer is a partial yes. If diastasis recti is only present in the lower abdominal muscles, muscle plication may adequately address it. Yet, if the condition extends beyond the lowest abdominal muscles it may require a full tummy tuck to correct.
Diastasis recti causes a bulge in the stomach and can cause the “pooch” appearance of the stomach that a tummy tuck corrects. Dr. Jonov can determine if you have diastasis recti and which type of tummy tuck will best correct it and give you the results you are looking for. In most cases of diastasis recti, a full tummy tuck is required to fully repair the separation.

When researching breast augmentation and deciding which technique is best for them, patients may come across many facts about transaxillary breast augmentation. One of these includes that transaxillary patients can experience a quicker recovery. Among the other benefits that draw patients to the transaxillary approach, this is one that patients often want to know if it is true or not most. So, does transaxillary breast augmentation less recovery time?
The answer to this is that it depends. The placement of the transaxillary incision in the armpit allows easy access to behind the chest muscle. In most cases, this allows Dr. Jonov to place the breast implant behind the muscle without excision. No cutting of the muscle usually contributes to a less painful and quicker recovery.
However, other factors do impact breast augmentation recovery time. Firstly, smoking can greatly increase recovery time regardless of the technique. Also, if patients return to work too quickly or try to exercise before they can, it can disrupt recovery. Finally, medical and genetic factors such as conditions and previous surgeries can lead to a quicker or slower recovery.
In general, the transaxillary breast augmentation method may lessen recovery time in patients who are good candidates. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561. You can also contact us online using our contact forms, chat, or Price Simulator™.
Dermaplaning is a procedure that uses a surgical blade to remove peach fuzz and dead skin. This can improve the efficacy of your skincare products and can contribute to a smoother makeup application. One of the most loved and notable benefits of dermaplaning is the glow it often creates after treatment. After undergoing their first Bellevue dermaplaning treatment, patients often want to know how often they can have dermaplaning. This question will vary for everyone. So, how often to get dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is considered one of the least invasive skincare procedures. It exfoliates and opens up the pores with an extremely gentle and careful technique. Therefore, it is possible to undergo dermaplaning more often than other procedures such as chemical peels or microneedling.
Most patients can safely get dermaplaning every three to four weeks. This roughly once enough schedule removes the dead skin that accumulated since the last treatment, removes surface hair, and restores a dermaplane glow. This schedule hinges on you only undergoing dermaplaning or gentle facials. If you have a procedure such as a chemical peel between dermaplaning sessions, you may need to wait before having another session.
Your master esthetician will review your skin needs and create a customized skincare treatment plan. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561. You can also reach us online through our contact forms and Price Simulator™ app.
A non-surgical nose job is a procedure that can correct undesirable features of the nose using dermal filler injections. While not suitable for every patient wanting to make alterations to their nose, it is a wonderful option for patients that do not need or want a full rhinoplasty. The procedure can also serve as a trial run for more permanent rhinoplasty surgery. Before undergoing the injections, patients often ask: how long does a non-surgical rhinoplasty last?
The answer to this question will largely depend on the type of filler used and individual factors. As far as the type of filler used during a non-surgical nose job, this will depend on your needs and the specifics of the procedure. Dr. Jonov can discuss the filler options for your non-surgical nose job and which will provide the best results.
In general, most patients can expect their non-surgical rhinoplasty to last between six months and two years. Factors that can impact this include your metabolism, how much you exercise, and overall health. This impacts how quickly your body breaks down the filler.
Beyond this, to promote the longest lasting results from your non-surgical rhinoplasty maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the easiest way to keep your results as long as possible.
