Dr. Wigoda’s Opinion: Botox and Muscle Loss

Have you heard about the New York Daily News article that claims Botox injections may cause muscle loss?

Not to worry, says board-certified plastic surgeon Paul Wigoda MD. In a video on his YouTube Channel, Dr. Wigoda dispels the rumors, saying, “I’ve been [administering Botox] for 11 or 12 years; I have hundreds of patients who are very happy. I’ve never experienced a patient come in with muscle atrophy in their face because we did Botox.”

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda Reviews Spin Crowd Jonathan Chebin’s Zeltiq Liposuction

Last week, the popular E! reality TV show Command PR’s CEO Jonathan Cheban received Zeltiq liposuction.

Zeltiq liposuction, according to the Wall Street Journal, freezes the fat cells inside love handles and belly pouches, causing them to self-destruct over a period of time.

So how does Dr. Paul Wigoda feel about this expensive new lipo procedure? See the video for my thoughts on Zeltiq versus traditional liposuction.

One Month After Painless Breast Implant Surgery by Dr. Wigoda in Fort Lauderdale

Me less than a month at Painless Breast Implants

Me less than a month after Painless Breast Implant Surgery

You would never guess I had breast augmentation surgery one month ago if you looked at my schedule. I’ve been to Jupiter, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Virginia Beach, North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Chicago and San Francisco. Two concerts, a 4-day business conference and I started running on the treadmill last week.

My scars are barely noticeable and I feel like my new additions have always been part of my body. My implants are still sitting a little high on my chest, but they have dropped a little each day, so I think I am on track for the two to three months for overall results.

To Massage or not to Massage after Breast Implants?
When I run into girls who have breast implants and we share the common bond, everyone tells me to massage my breasts for best breast results. So that’s what I have been doing, and it helps!

I’ve been drinking lots of water and exercising more too.

What has changed since my painless breast implant surgery with Dr. Wigoda?

My bra size! I’m still wearing the sports bras and found the best selection at Sears and some sexy bandeau style bras without underwire by Calvin Klein at Macys.

My shirts, tops, blouses and pajama tops don’t fit the same: some fit better than others so I have had to start over with new stuff. Great excuse to go shopping, especially online on sites like Taigan.com. They are just a click away.

I wore a bikini top for the first time this weekend, which was exciting and invigorating. Confidence booster 100%.

What do you tell the kids about breast implants?
I was nervous what my eight-year-old daughter would think or say. But it was actually pretty easy. She did notice, but when she asked “why are mommy’s boobs bigger and what are those little cuts,” I told her it was like when girls get a different hair color or hair cut – sometimes, they might want a different boob size, bigger or smaller. She said, “Ohhhhhh!”
That was easy…and true!

One Day Before Painless Breast Implants with Dr. Wigoda, I’m Officially Psychotic

So, the countdown begins…just 24 hours before my painless breast implant surgery with Dr. Paul Wigoda in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

A million questions that I can’t believe I never thought of are running through my head. What if I don’t wake up from the anesthesia? What if the electricity goes off in the middle of surgery? What am I supposed to wear? Can I drink a glass of wine or three the night before?

Then I get a text from my boyfriend. He asks: “Do you want to go to the baseball game in Tampa next Tuesday?”

Is he serious?

I’m like WTF????

I’m having surgery tomorrow and he is thinking about next week’s baseball game?…I’m having breast implant S-U-R-G-E-R-Y! How much does he really love me?

Then I realized, I’m being psychotic.

Reminder to self: Dr. Paul Wigoda is the best plastic surgeon; I could not be in better hands, literally. I call Karoline, one of Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implantSize D pros. She told me all my feelings are normal. Karoline said to wear a Juicy Couture outfit and all will be fine. Cheers!

“I don’t hate my body, I actually have always kind of liked it and my small B bra size,” Lisa shared in her first painless breast implant blog post. “But after going through my pregnancy and seeing what I could possibly look like a size bigger, I’ve been a little hooked on bigger breasts. Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implant procedure is exactly what I’m looking for.”

Get answers to many of the typical question Dr. Wigoda faces about the not-so-typical painless breast implant surgery he has perfected over the years at The Aesthetics Institute.

For some women, breast augmentation surgery is an easy decision. For others, the idea of elective surgery, the physical side effects, and potential risks make the decision more difficult. Dr. Wigoda and Lisa take you through the process from start to finish.
