Is your surgeon Board-Certified?


Searching for the right plastic surgeon is a very important part of a cosmetic procedure. One very important factor when looking for your plastic surgeon is finding out if he or she is board-certified.
Dr. John T. Nguyen is double board certified, meaning he is board certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery as well as board certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Curious about a Breast Lift?

Having sagging and/or uneven breasts? Decreased breast volume? Drooping nipples and stretched areolas?


Then YOU are the PERFECT candidate for the Breast Lift procedure!!!

Also known as a Mastopexy, the sole purpose for the Breast Lift procedure is to recreate the breast by lifting them, repositioning the nipple and areola (the dark area around the nipple) to achieve a more youthful look.

Q & A

-How long does this procedure take, and is there anesthesia involved?

This specific procedure takes approximately two hours. The patient will be placed under general anesthesia and will be monitored throughout the entire procedure.

-What if I don’t have enough breast tissue to have perky, full breasts after the breast lift?

This is an issue that some women face when consulting with their surgeon. When women do not have enough breast tissue to get the fullness at the top of the breast an implant is recommended. The implant helps to shape the breast and fill in the upper pole of the breast for a more desired look.

-Where would the implant be located?

Good question! The implant would be placed under the muscle, which allows the breast to have a more natural feel and slope and well as look.

-Do women normally get this procedure done?

Every year, thousands of women undergo successful Breast Lift surgery, experience no major problems and are pleased with the results!

-What is the typical recovery time for this procedure?

Most of our patients need about 1-2 weeks off from work. However, following the procedure, you must refrain from any hard physical activity, such as running and heavy lifting of weights, for about 6-8 weeks.

Dr. Nguyen has recently published an educational video for our Youtube channel! Below is the link to our Youtube channel where you will find a video of Dr. Nguyen performing a Breast Lift procedure . Warning this video does contain GRAPHIC CONTENT, VIEWERS DISCRETION ADVISED.

Tummy Tuck Healing Process


Prior to undergoing the tummy tuck procedure, it is very important to understand what is expected after the surgery, including the healing process.ENfront

Each abdominoplasty/tummy tuck procedure is unique and each patient’s healing process will vary, but understanding the general timeline can help you avoid complications after surgery.

Healing Begins Prior To Surgery

There are steps you can take to help prepare for tummy tuck recovery even before the procedure. Prepare for the healing process by purchasing VitaMedica’s Recover Support Program. You would begin taking the Morning and Evening Formula two weeks prior to the surgery. In doing so, this will help you get back on your feet faster after the surgical procedure. Also, since this procedure is a major surgery, be sure to have a friend or family member stay with you for the first few days to help assist you around the house. If you are a smoker, you will definitely need to stop smoking prior to surgery and throughout the recovery process. Smoking reduces the delivery of oxygen to tissues because it constricts blood vessels. If your cells are deprived of oxygen, you wont heal as well as you should. Wound separation, skin death and raised scars may occur as a result. Also be aware that second-hand smoke (other people smoking in your home, etc.) can cause the same problems. Dr. Nguyen personally recommends that his patients stop smoking a minimum of four weeks prior to the procedure.

Healing: Week One

For most patients, the first week of recovery is the most difficult. Bruising, pain, swelling, numbness, stiffness, redness, and tingling should be expected. Your movement will be limited, which is why having a friend or family member around is recommended. Strenuous activities, lifting, and driving should be avoided. Stick to a low sodium diet, which will help reduce swelling.

Other things to be aware of during the first week are drains and garments. DrainDrainss are used to remove excess fluid from the incision area and are removed during your post operative visit, typically two weeks after the procedure. A compression garment placed surgery should be worn to provide support and hold tissues in place during the recovery. You can remove the garment while showering only, and wash it at that time. Dr. Nguyen will give you detailed instructions on how to care for the incisions and drains.

Healing: Week Two

During the second week of recovery, pain and discomfort should begin to decrease and bruising should begin to fade. However, there will likely still be some swelling. Drains would be removed during your post operative visit, though your compression garment still needs to be worn and the incision will still require care. Continue to avoid strenuous activity although light walks for blood circulation are encouraged to decrease the risk of developing blood clots in the legs. Some patients may be ready to return to work after 10 to 14 days but should only do so if they feel up to it and your doctor has released you to go back to work.

Healing: Weeks Three to Six

ENangleSmallBy the third to fourth week, swelling, pain, and bruising should be greatly reduced or gone. Though most patients feel close to fully recovered by the fourth week, strenuous activity should still be avoided until about the sixth week. Your doctor will let you know at your six week follow up, if you are released to go back to the gym. Always remember that everyone’s healing process is different, sometimes it takes up to 8 to 10 weeks until their doctor gives them the release to work out again. It is very important to keep a healthy diet & lifestyle to maintain the results of the surgery. If any swelling and pain worsens during the recovery it should always be brought to your doctor’s attention immediately.

What is a Mommy Makeover?


In a woman’s life, motherhood is by far one of the most rewarding experiences. Unfortunately, as most women know, pregnancy does take a toll on their bodies from sagging of the breasts because of breastfeeding to stretching of the abdominal muscles as well as losing skin elasticity. Working out and eating healthy is important but many women find that despite their healthy lifestyle, it can be difficult to get their pre-baby bodies back.

The “Mommy Makeover” is a combination of two cosmetic surgeries, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift (mastopexy) with/or without implants. Most women desire these two surgeries together, to help restore the body to how it was prior to pregnancy and breastfeeding.

As with any surgery, it is important to do your research and find a surgeon that you feel most comfortable with.
