How can patients accelerate healing and obtain better results following breast surgery?


Surgical Bra: A surgical bra designed for your specific cosmetic procedure is an essential part of ensuring the results you and your Doctor planned.  Each bra provides proper support to the surgical areas for enhanced comfort while it helps the skin conform to your new contours.

The garment may also help reduce tension at incision site, preventing stretching and exaggerated scaring.

Muffin Tops Belong On Muffins


It’s the New Year, so time for a New You…and the obligatory quest to loose some pounds and that dreaded “muffin top”.  But can muffins be a healthy part of a new diet plan, based on a sound breakfast to start the day?  Rather than “the low fat muffin”  remake the home baked.  Most fat in muffins comes from plant oils, which is a  “good” fat—an unsaturated fat that is healthy for the heart. If you take out fat, what’s left? White flour and sugar—the perfect recipe for weight gain.  Instead of buying low fat muffins, modify your recipe…muffin top

1. Downsize the portions.

2. Go whole on the grains.

3. Incorporate fruits or nuts.

Go for the Muffin Makeover – maybe the Whole Wheat Banana Muffin!  In the meantime, give Sculptures everyday wear a try too….Does wonders for that other muffin top.

The Sculptures Everyday Wear garment is designed to slim and tone.  It hides little bulges, mainly the muffin top, the back, stomach and thighs and creates a smooth line.  If there is too much fat, the shapeware will move it somewhere else, so fit is key.

Designed to flatten the stomach and sculpt the torso, derriere, midriff and in some cases thighs – all is accomplished with no visible seams. Compression shapewear looks great under slim fitting dresses, skirts and tight shirts and yes, even form fitting pants.
