"Mommy Makeover"

“Mommy Makeover”

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are all experiences that many women look forward to and enjoy.  Sure women take pleasure in their new roles as mothers, but there are some unpleasant changes to the body that aren’t so pleasing to the eye.  Throughout a pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts and abdomen stretch, causing the skin to lose elasticity.  There also may be specific areas of stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet and a “Mommy Makeover” may be the perfect solution. 

Women who have exhausted natural means of weight loss often turn to cosmetic plastic surgery to achieve their desired goals.  Typically, patients who are having the post-baby blues may choose to undergo a combination of procedures in order to regain their pre-pregnancy shape, and this is often termed a “Mommy Makeover.”  Here at Conkright Aesthetics the most combined procedures for this makeover includes breast lift surgery (with augmentation), liposuction, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).  These procedures can help restore the breasts to a more youthful shape and position, while tightening and contouring the midsection.  After patients undergo the Mommy Makeover they feel they have been able to reclaim their body and have more self confidence again. 

If you are ready to learn more about any of these procedures or to schedule your complementary consultation for your Mommy Makeover call Conkright Aesthetics today at 812.842.0240.

Breast Cancer Awareness

The staff here at Conkright Aesthetics wants to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Whether you have had a breast augmentation or not it is still very important to have a yearly mammogram after the age of 40. For more than 20 years, October has been dedicated to being the month for National Breast Cancer Awareness. It is a time to reflect on loved ones who have won and lost the battle against breast cancer. It’s also an opportunity to raise awareness toward finding a cure, including encouraging women to get a regular mammography screening.

More than 230,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 40,000 will die of the disease, according to estimates by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It occurs in 1 in 8 women and is the most common cancer in women, but the good news is that it can be successfully treated when detected early. It is important that women perform breast self-exams. This is a tool that may help you learn what is normal for you. The breast self-exam involves looking at and feeling your breasts on a regular basis. If any changes occur contact your health care provider right away.

Here are a few signs of breast cancer to be aware of but these signs are not the same for all women. If you notice any of these breast changes, see your health care provider:

-A lump, hard knot or thickening

-Swelling, warmth, redness, or darkening

-Change in the size or shape of the breast

-Dimpling or puckering of the skin

-Itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple

-Pulling in of your nipple or other parts of the breast

-Nipple discharge that starts suddenly

-New pain in one spot that does not go away

**It is very important to discuss any of these symptoms with a health care provider as soon as possible so that if breast cancer is present, it is more likely to be diagnosed at an early stage when it is most treatable.

Some people still believe that having breast implants — whether silicone or saline — can increase a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer but this is a myth, according to the chief physician for Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care. There is absolutely no link between the two. Mammography is still a safe and effective screening tool for women who have breast implants. However, it is important for a woman with implants to inform the radiologist before the procedure is performed so that the mammography machine can be specially positioned to avoid full compression of the implant and additional views may be used to see the breast tissue as the implant is pushed toward the chest wall away from the breast tissue.

On October 22nd from 10am-12pm Conkright Aesthetics is going to be holding a Pumpkin Peel Party and all proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Call us today at 812.842.0240 so you can be a part of the Pumpkin Peel Party and help find a cure!

New Clinical Team Associate

 

Hello all,

 

For those of you who don’t know me I am Jessica Ralph and I am new to Conkright Aesthetics. I joined the team on September 12, 2011. This is a very new experience for me as my previous job was at Home Headquarter’s, which is a kitchen a bath studio here in Evansville. I graduated from Murray State University in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design and since graduation I have decided to go back to school and peruse a degree in Sonography (ultrasounds) at the University of Southern Indiana.

 

What brings me to a plastic surgeon’s office you ask? Well, I wanted to get into the health care environment and get some experience working with “patients” instead of “clients” so I could make sure that the health care field is where I belong. To be honest with you, I never saw myself working in plastic surgeon’s office. Plastic surgery isn’t something I really ever gave much thought to. I’ve seen it on T.V. and have known people who have had Breast Augmentations but never really thought about it being something I would ever consider doing.

 

In my short three weeks of working at Conkright Aesthetics my perception of plastic surgery has changed tremendously. Not only do I have more respect for people who choose to turn to plastic surgery, but I understand why people decide to have these procedures done. I have learned that many people come to Dr. Conkright because they aren’t happy with the way a certain part of their body may look and have self-esteem and confidence issues. Here at Conkright Aesthetics, we strive to be the best and to allow our patients to get their confidence back! Give us a call today to set up your complementary consultation today 812.842.0240. Can’t wait to meet all of you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Jessica

Fall Fashion 2011

 

This fall is the  final season for the first year of this new decade, and also the season that will go a long way to defining 2012's fashion trends,  fall 2011 is a crucial period for building your wardrobe and evolving your personal style, according to Daniel Dykes for Fashionising.com.

So what’s in store for this season women? Seventies fashion remains high on the list of carry-over trends, taking with it the likes of flares and wide-leg pants.  Also plunging necklines, fur, and burnt color palettes are at the top of the list for this seasons' fall fashion.

The neckline plunge of 2011 / 2012 is not a scoop neck. It’s a deep cut V that ends somewhere between the breastbone and the naval. It’s glamorous yet effortless, so works best with a lightly relaxed fit rather than a gravity-defying, tightly fitted one.

This winter and into 2012 fur clothing and coats are all about the statement, whether the coat is made completely of fur or simply accented with it, it is a must have of the season.

A burnt color pallet are the colors for now and they’re the colors for next season. They are bright and hip and just about every label and retailer will offer something up in a burnt shade of color this season.

If you’re looking to make a statement with your accessories, and are wanting for one that carries over to the new year, the solid metal jewelry trend that includes everything from cuffs to chokers is what your looking for.  It's a clean and simple look that anyone can pull off.  Whether it is silver or gold- or bronze or copper these metal cuffs and chokers are the look for right now!
