The increased risk of suicide was not apparent until 10 years after implantation, all thought not in every patient this happens, patients from breast lift in la jolla ca  do not suffer this. This was found in a study of a nationwide cohort of 3527 Swedish women with cosmetic breast implants. This study had a mean follow-up of 18.7 years (range, 0.1-37.8 years). This number of deaths in this group was compared with the number expected among the age- and calendar-period-matched general female population of Sweden. The abstract of this study from the Annals of Plastic Surgery. Women usually seek to make themselves look better since they normally aren’t happy with how they look, but most of the times their procedure isn’t done correctly causing them to not feel better at all. That’s why it’s important to make sure you know who is doing the procedure, look for the best plastic surgeon you can find so you are guaranteed successful results.
The excess of deaths from suicides, drug and alcohol abuse and dependence may be due to an underlying psychiatric condition among these women.
From an article on Anxiety, Addiction and Depression Treatments

It needs to be made clear that the number of women whose causes of death could be linked to mental health concerns was small even within the study. The death rates were much higher than the population at large, but only future research will allow stronger conclusions. What is clear at this juncture is that more thorough pschological screening, both before and after surgery, might be appropriate. Elective cosmetic surgery should not be restricted or at all impeded by these screenings, but it would make sense that since we know there is a connection, that we use it to help improve the lives of those who may unknowingly be dealing with depression, anxiety or any number of mental health conditions.

Tummy tuck

After a rapid weight loss or pregnancy, the skin on the belly is loose due to weakening of the abdominal wall. The excess skin is often not possible to remove even by regular exercise and so a plastic surgery comes to place, a tummy tuck surgery where the excess skin and fat are removed and the abdominal muscles are surgically tightened. It is also well combinable with a liposuction. This surgery is not suitable for everyone and it is not a way to treat obesity. If you have any doubts whether this surgery is a good choice for you, do not hesitate to book an appointment at Gyncentrum to have your questions answered. It is suitable for women as well as for men. If a pregnancy or a rapid weight loss is planned, we recommend waiting with the surgery afterwards to achieve the best possible result. A less invasive way is the so-called mini tummy tuck which only treats the lower abdomen and is often enough to reach the desired results.

Consultation: During the first consultation, you can discuss all possible options with our specialist who will recommend a concrete approach to achieve the best results. Then, you will get all information about the surgery and post-operative care. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia so a pre-op examination is needed. This includes an examination by an internist, blood collection, ECG and measuring your blood pressure.

Surgery: The surgery takes 2 – 2,5 hours. One large incision is made in the lower abdomen. A second, smaller incision is around the belly button. The skin is separated from the muscles, which are then stitched together to tighten the abdomen wall (if needed). The excess skin is removed and the belly button is replaced. The scar stays in the lower abdomen and is easily covered by underwear. In case of a mini tummy tuck there is no need to interfere in the upper abdomen. The whole surgery takes up to 2 hours and the scar is slightly smaller.
