Cosmetic Surgery in Lethbridge

Lethbridge Plastic Surgeon

You’ve chosen to have cosmetic surgery and in doing so, selected a great Lethbridge plastic surgeon. Dr. Secretan will help you achieve the desired results but YOU are just as essential to the process and outcome as your surgeon is! Our Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics surgeon, Dr. Secretan will take every measure to minimize your risks, but he can’t be there as you recover. So, what can you do to enhance your chances of a smooth recovery? Check out the following 5 cosmetic surgery care tips to allow your experience and recovery to be as smooth as possible:

✔️ Prepare your home ahead of time — arrange childcare, pet care, meal prep, etc. This will ensure that you can rest as much as required post-surgery.

✔️ If you’re an abdominoplasty patient, you will want to maintain your current level of fitness. Focus on strengthening your core muscles — specifically your back and abs. There is no need to push your limits by upping your fitness routines, especially since you want to avoid injury. However, maintaining your fitness routines and having a strong core will prevent back pain during your recovery. Since your mobility will be limited post-surgery (no standing up straight), you’ll thank yourself for the strong core muscles.

✔️ Cut out smoking (or at minimum, cut it down). We know that smoking is harmful to your health but did you know that smoking is a big issue when it comes to plastic surgery recovery? The reason for this is because plastic surgery operations “live on the edge of your blood supply.” This means that when performing surgery, the surgeon is operating at the limit of what the circulation to the skin and other tissues will allow. In order to have adequate circulation, the surgeon needs to ensure that they not only leave enough blood vessels intact, but that the blood is flowing through the vessels sufficiently.

✔️ Post-surgery, follow your surgeon’s instructions. If you find yourself asking for an exception to the rule, such as exercising earlier than recommended or taking medication on a “don’t take” list, think about what you are asking. Do you want your surgeon to cut corners? If the answer is no, expect the same from yourself. If you bend the rules or don’t follow your after-surgery care instructions, you could end up with an emergency bleed or other complications that may either require another surgery or will forever impact your results.

✔️ Be patient healing takes time. Your swelling will not go down right away, scars will remain pink while they heal and your final results may not be evident for weeks, even months.

For any cosmetic surgery procedure, Dr. Secretan will provide in-depth, specific-to-you instructions to ensure you know what to expect not only before your surgery, but afterwards too.

If you have any questions, we’d love to answer them! You can put them in the comments directly below or find us on Facebook or Instagram. Alternatively, give us a call directly via phone at 403-381-0083 for an immediate response. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Are breast implants right for you?

Are breast implants right for you? For some women, breast augmentation is a way to feel more confident. For others, it’s part of rebuilding the breast for various conditions. To be a good candidate and to know if breast augmentation surgery is right for you, you should:

Educate yourself

Take time to become informed. Your plastic surgeon is your most valuable source. Trust their expertise to help you understand the risks and benefits associated with breast implants and surgery.

Do it for yourself

Your personal motivation for surgery is one of the most important considerations in your decision-making process. Spend some time evaluating why you believe surgery is right for you.

Set realistic expectations

To feel good about your body, you need to have realistic expectations. There are many reasons to enhance the size and shape of your breasts, and the right fit is one that balances what you want with what will compliment your body type and what your breast tissue will allow.

Pictured here is an example of Dr. Secretan’s work. He was successfully able to enhance this patient’s breast size. As you can see, they look natural and fit with the overall proportions of her body.

breast implants by Dr. Secretan in Lethbridge

  • The implants are a sub-glandular plane and are 385cc full projecting Truform II allergan implants.
  • Weight: Approx 140 Lbs
  • Height: 5’8”
  • Implant: Full projection Truform II 385 cc silicone implants
  • This image was taken 6 months post operative.

Breast implants are composed of a silicone shell with a filler.

  • Saline implants contain a salt-water solution.
  • Silicone implants contain silicone gel.

Silicone gel-filled breast implants were licensed by Health Canada in 2006 and are used extensively throughout the world. They are often preferred over saline-filled implants for several reasons:

  • Silicone implants look and feel more natural
  • Hold their shape better over time
  • Provide high satisfaction to both patients and surgeons
  • Have less complications, such as rupturing and capsular contracture
  • Prove more implant sizes

If this is a procedure you’ve been considering and want to learn more about, contact our office and book a consultation! It’s imperative that you understand what the surgery involves, including possible risks, complications, and follow-up care.

Cosmetic Benefits of Botox in Lethbridge

The list of cosmetic benefits of Botox in Lethbridge is a long one! Let’s dive in, shall we?! (PS — pictured here is just one example of great results!)

Botox is a great way to safely smooth out fine lines and soften wrinkles that collect around the eyes, brow, forehead, and mouth. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. (So, YES — you can come in on your lunch break ?). You may notice results within 24-48 hours which can last up to 4-months for moderate to severe frown lines.

  • Fast results make you look dramatically younger
  • FDA cleared as safe & effective
  • Soften wrinkles and smooth out fine lines
  • Effective for crow’s feet, smile lines, & forehead wrinkles
  • Non-surgical alternative to a facelift
  • Results are natural-looking and preserve facial expression
  • Skilled & experienced practitioners (aka Dr. Secretan) offer optimal results

Here’s what you can expect during your Botox injections:

Real, noticeable results

You’ll look like yourself… but with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive sensitive treatment. you should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

The actual injection process takes about ten minutes

Dr. Secretan will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Some patients report that being injected with Botox Cosmetic feels like a pinch. We may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you’re concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave our office!
