Finding a cosmetic surgeon can be stressful. You don’t want just anyone performing surgery on you, especially a surgery that can alter your appearance. That’s why we suggest doing your research to learn everything you can about your surgeon in order to determine if they are the right fit for you. Below are the top things you should be looking for in a cosmetic surgeon:

  1. Board-Certified Surgeon: A board certification ensures that your surgeon has been properly trained and has the necessary experience to be performing procedures. Our very own Dr. Jason Nealy is a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon who is board certified in general surgery, facial cosmetic surgery, and general cosmetic surgery. Dr. Nealy is the best of the best and his results prove it!

  2. Great Ratings and Reviews: Word of mouth and great reviews go a long way. Hearing from previous patients can give you a better understanding of what to expect. Great surgeons have consistent and recent reviews with high ratings from their patients. (Check out Dr. Nealy’s recent reviews here!)

  3. Accredited Facility: Operating out of an accredited facility ensures that the highest safety standards are met. The facility is regularly inspected to ensure these standards are maintained. They also have adequate life support equipment and qualified support staff to help in case of an emergency.

  4. Tailored Treatments: Cosmetic surgery isn’t a one size fits all procedure. It’s important to find a surgeon who is willing to take the time to create a treatment plan that is unique to you. You should be able to talk openly and honestly with your doctor about your goals. From there, your surgeon can discuss with you your options and customize a plan that is right for you. 

  5. Professional and Friendly Staff: Good bedside manner says a lot about a doctor. Your surgeon should take interest in your case, ask you questions, and answer any questions you may have. Surgery is a big step and it’s important that you trust your surgery team and that they make you feel comfortable.

At Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery, Lipo and Medspa we care about our patients and want them to have a great experience with us. Dr. Nealy and his team are highly skilled in what they do and have helped patients just like you achieve their aesthetic goals.

Do Breast Implants Need To Be Replaced?

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Oct 21, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Breast augmentation can be a great way for women who are small-chested, or who have previously breastfed, to improve the shape, fullness, size and appearance of their breasts. With different implant sizes and materials, there is bound to be an option for everyone. The big question for many patients when deciding to get implants is “How long do they last?” If this is something you’ve wondered then you are in the right place.

Implant Blog Post

In the past, implants had to be replaced every ten years due to things like typical wear, rupture, or leaking. With advancements in the quality of implants, they now last forever! Breast augmentation is now a one and done treatment, as long as no issues arise with your implants indicating that reoperation is necessary.

Dr. Nealy recommends routine annual mammograms and frequent self-checks to ensure the implants are still intact. In addition, he recommends patients who have received a breast augmentation get an MRI every three years to evaluate the implant for signs of rupture. Because of the improved quality of current implants, it is nearly impossible to tell if they have ruptured in a physical exam alone.

If you have received breast implants in the past, and are unsure if your implants will need to be replaced, it’s important to check with your provider. Older implants often are replaced every ten years. At Silk Touch, we offer implant removal and replacement for patients who previously received implants.

For those of you who are interested in breast augmentation surgery or are wanting more information on the procedure, be sure to give us a call at 208-939-3110 to schedule a consultation!

Untitled design-1

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that helps to improve the appearance of the abdomen. Not only does this procedure help get rid of unwanted fat, but it also removes excess skin, and strengthens weak or separated abdominal muscles as well.

Who is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck

Patients who are the best candidates for a tummy tuck are those who are looking to get rid of excess abdominal skin after pregnancy or weight loss. Dr. Nealy is able to combine tummy tuck techniques to erase fat that is resistant to exercise and dieting. This procedure is also best suited for patients who:

  • Are done being pregnant
  • Have realistic expectations for results
  • Are in good health and don’t smoke
  • Are committed to living a healthy lifestyle
  • Have realistic expectations for recovery

Tummy Tucks at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa

Dr. Nealy’s advanced training and unmatched artistry help him to deliver the best aesthetic results to his patients. He prefers to use a technique called lipoabdominoplasty which combines liposuction with tummy tuck surgery on the abdomen. This technique provides improved contour and impressive results, with less downtime.

To find out if you are a candidate for tummy tuck surgery, call us at 208-939-3110 or visit us online to schedule your complimentary consultation

Are Mammograms Necessary For Breast Surgery?

Posted by Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery on Jun 17, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Most, if not all, women know the importance of receiving a mammogram to check for healthy breast tissue. Mammograms are a vital part of women's health as they begin to age to protect against breast cancer. But did you know that mammograms may be required by doctors prior to breast surgery? 

Mammogram Blog

When receiving elective breast surgery such as a breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a breast reduction at Silk Touch Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, there are a few pre-surgery preparation steps that must be taken. Depending on your family medical history and age, one of these preparations may be getting a mammogram.

When to Get a Mammogram

According to the American Cancer Society women at an average risk of breast cancer should follow specific guidelines on when to get a mammogram. These guidelines are as follows:

  • Women age 40 to 44: optional mammograms annually
  • Women age 45 to 54: mammograms annually
  • Women ages 55 and older: mammograms every other year or optional yearly mammograms

What is Considered "Average Risk?"

Women who are at an “average risk” include those who have not had breast cancer in the past, who do not have a strong family history of breast cancer or the BRCA gene, and who have not had chest radiation therapy before the age of 30. These guidelines may differ for those who are at a high risk.

Breast Surgery at Silk Touch

At Silk Touch, Dr. Nealy follows these guidelines as well as those set by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which state that doctors should only have patients tested when necessary. 

If you do not meet these requirements then it is likely that you will not have to receive a mammogram prior to your elective breast surgery. Any additional questions you may have can be discussed with the doctor at your consultation. For more information on how to prepare for your breast surgery consultation visit our website or call us at 208-939-3110.
