Celebrate BRA Day with Dr. Zeidler on October 12

Immediately following a mastectomy, many women choose to undergo breast reconstruction surgery to restore the look of natural breasts. But did you know that a recent study showed that only 33% of patients were informed of their options for breast reconstruction before undergoing a mastectomy?

Breast reconstruction can be a transformative procedure for women who’ve lost breast tissue to cancer removal surgery, but the truth is, the majority of breast cancer patients aren’t aware that it’s even an option. In light of this, Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day was started with the aim of informing women about their options so they can be fully in control of their recovery from breast cancer.

To celebrate this important day, Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler has partnered with Cancer CAREpoint to host her sixth annual BRA Day event.

BRA Day 2017: You’re Invited!

Join Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler and Cancer CAREpoint on October 12th as they celebrate BRA Day at Hotel Valencia, located at 355 Santana Row, San Jose, CA 95128. The event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Registration to attend the sixth annual BRA Day event is $30 per person, and $60 if you’d like to participate in the bra decorating contest, which will have a celebrity judge panel, including World Cup Champion Brandi Chastain. All proceeds from the event will go to CAREpoint.

Why Celebrate BRA Day?

Although more and more women have taken a proactive approach to their breast health in recent years thanks to Breast Cancer Awareness month, many women are still not aware of their treatment options during breast cancer recovery. The goal of BRA Day is to spread awareness so that women are informed about the full range of possibilities offered by breast reconstruction surgery.

This year’s BRA Day will be focused on educating and supporting women going through breast cancer. Dr. Zeidler will be sharing exciting information about the latest developments in breast cancer research, and guests will also have a chance to see technological advancements in breast reconstruction surgery through demonstrations. The event will also feature a special presentation by Dr. Pamela Munster, Professor of Medicine and Co-Program Leader at the Center for BRCA Research at UCSF, who will be speaking about recent advancements in treating patients with breast cancer gene mutations.

To celebrate the resilience of those affected by breast cancer, Dr. Zeidler recently held a special photo shoot to capture the many women who are determined to thrive in their recovery. The BRA Day event will feature an inspiring showcase of these photos, allowing guests to see how breast cancer patients have found strength again after a difficult journey.

If you or someone you know has been affected by breast cancer, join us on October 12th to empower women through education and awareness on BRA Day. If you have any questions about the event, or you’d like to learn more about your options for breast reconstruction surgery, contact Aesthetx at (408) 559-7177.

What You Need to Learn About Breast Augmentation in Your 40s

It might not seem like it, but plenty of women undergo breast augmentation in their 40s. If you’re in your 40s and considering breast augmentation, then you’re probably wizened and ready for a new change. Don’t think of it as if it’s a matter of being too old to get a new figure—if anything, breast augmentation just might be the key to rejuvenating your look. You’ve been there, done that—now it’s time to do a little something for yourself. To help you learn more about the process, we’ve put together this helpful guide on what you need to learn about breast augmentation in your 40s:

Plan, Plan, Plan

It’s important to consider the logistics of breast augmentation—especially when it comes to timing. Lucky for you, being in your 40s is an optimal time to get the procedure done. Many women are often done having children in their 40s, which removes the possibility that their results might be compromised by a future pregnancy. And since age-related volume loss might have set in by their 40s, many women also seek breast augmentation to help restore fullness and firmness to the breasts.

Consider a Lift

At your age, your skin’s elasticity will be slightly compromised. It’s possible that over the years, a small degree of drooping might even have developed. In that case, it’s important to consider whether you should also undergo a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation. Hear us out: for certain women who have some droopiness in the breast, the insertion of implants might actually make sagging worse. With that in mind, you might want to opt for a breast lift with implants because it would be able to give you the right lifting effect as well as give you peace of mind that your results will be long-lasting. A breast lift with implants can address a wide range of issues:

  • Restore volume loss in the breasts
  • Enhance the cleavage
  • Reposition the breasts to a more youthful position
  • Resize overly large nipples

Maybe a Mammogram

Since many women begin getting mammograms in their 40s, you might be concerned about how implants might interfere with the screening. Fortunately, many physicians consider breast augmentation to be safe for mammograms, although it’s highly recommended that you inform the technician about your implants before every test.

This is your decade—your time to just do you. Maybe you’re done having children or you’re at the peak of your career, but now is the perfect time to boost confidence and pride about your body. To learn more about what your breast augmentation will be like, contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

What You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation in Your 30s

Are you in your 30s and thinking about breast augmentation? Lucky for you, your 30s is an optimal time for breast enhancement; you’re more confident, you’ve probably settled into a career, and you know yourself more than ever. If you’re curious about what having breast augmentation in your 30s will entail, check out our guide on getting breast augmentation in your 30s.

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation

In addition to being one of the most customizable procedures in the plastic surgery industry, breast augmentation happens to be the top cosmetic procedure in the world—and for good reason. Breast augmentation is a great way to remake your figure and give yourself a curvier, more alluring silhouette. To be more specific, breast augmentation can:

  • Enhance breast volume
  • Enhance your cleavage
  • Shape the breasts
  • Create fuller, firmer breasts

Optimal Breast Augmentation

One of the main issues with getting breast augmentation in your 20s is that your breasts might still be growing and maturing; once you’re in your 30s, however, that risk is almost nonexistent. Unless you have some major life changes-like pregnancy-getting a breast augmentation in your 30s is a great way to ensure your breast augmentation results will stand the tests of time.

Breast Feeding and Pregnancy

If you’re thinking about having children in the future, then it’s important to consider potential issues like how your breasts might change because of pregnancy or how breast implants might interfere with breast feeding. Since our breasts naturally change shape and size during pregnancy, it’s possible that your breast augmentation results might be affected. And while it’s not impossible to breastfeed after having breast implants, the amount of milk you produce might be compromised. If having more kids is a possibility in the future, you should make sure to discuss it with your surgeon.

Who You Are

Planning your breast augmentation is more than finding out what will look best on you—in fact, your implants should also fit your lifestyle and personality. Thankfully, a lot of women hit their stride in their 30s; women are a lot more self-assured at that time in their lives, and many of them have settled into lifelong careers and hobbies. By your 30s, you already know whether you’re someone who loves being active or someone who doesn’t mind a dramatic physical change, making it the perfect time to choose the kind of implants that will work best with your life.

Now that you know a little bit more about what it means to get breast augmentation in your 30s, let our surgeons educate you on the rest. Contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

Invest in Yourself; Cosmetic Procedures You Can Get with Your Tax Return

If you’re one of the 66% of Americans that expects a tax return this year, then you’re probably already trying to decide on how you’ll treat yourself. What better way is there to spend your money than a cosmetic treatment that could improve your confidence and self-esteem? You won’t be the first to spend their tax return on a cosmetic procedure: one RealSelf poll found that at least 29% of its community will do just that. Take some time to review some perfect procedures to get with your tax return, because it’s not a splurge—it’s an investment.

VI Peel

Don’t want to go too crazy with your newfound riches? A VI Peel will give you flawless, rejuvenated skin with none of the downtime of a major procedure. The VI Peel is one of the most advanced chemical peels in the industry because it has the power to reduce wrinkles, sun damage, and other blemishes—while also being relatively painless. Best of all, it works with all skin types.

Laser Hair Removal

Aesthetx offers the ClearScan and the BBL treatment for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a completely nonsurgical treatment that uses light or laser energy to remove hair from any area you want. In just a few treatments, you can have smooth, hairless skin forever. Think of all the money you’ll save when you no longer have to shell out your hard-earned money for razors and waxing services year after year!

Fat Transfer

If you’re going to use your tax return on one piece of technology, use it with Aesthex’s state-of-the-art fat grafting technologies: Hydrasolve and Puregraft. Fat transfers are extremely popular ways to restore fullness to the face or add subtle volume to the breasts and buttocks. Hydrasolve is an innovative liposuction technique that’s as gentle on the fatty tissue as possible, while Puregraft processes the fat with unparalleled pureness and cleanliness. Whether you want natural fullness in the breast, buttocks, or face, Aesthetx has the best tools for the job.

Facelift

You might not be able to cover the entire cost with your tax return, but the facelift is completely worth it. By tightening and lifting sagging skin, a facelift can eliminate deep wrinkles on the face and sagging jowls on the chin and neck. You’ll be able to remove decades off of your real age and enjoy results that last for an incredibly long time. You can’t put a price on feeling young again.

What’s a tax return to you? To a lot of people, it’s almost like a nice, unexpected present that comes once every spring time. Use it well by contacting Aesthetx for a consultation on their wonderful cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Zeidler Heads to Spain for Barcelona Breast Meeting 2017

As a thought-leader in the world of breast surgery, Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler has traveled the world to spread her expertise in new techniques for cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures. Just recently, Dr. Zeidler delivered a series of lectures for the most renowned physicians in her field at the 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting, a symposium on state-of-the-art revision surgery techniques, complex cases, and breast cancer treatment and reconstruction. Dr. Jaume Masia, one of the Chairmen of the symposium and colleague of Dr. Zeidler, personally tapped Dr. Zeidler to be a part of the faculty.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting

The 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting was a three-day conference for some of the most renowned minds in the field of breast surgery. This year, the event had over 400 attendees from more than 26 countries. The conference featured lectures, live surgeries, and workshops. The lectures were delivered by the conference’s distinguished faculty, which was made up of a handful elite surgeons like Dr. Zeidler. The symposium was held at the world-famous and historic Hospital de Sant Pau, which happens to be the oldest hospital in Spain.

A Master of Breast Surgery

Dr. Zeidler was able to draw upon her innovative career for her lectures; she was honored to help educate attendees on the devices and techniques that she and Dr. Berkowitz had a hand in helping develop. Hot off her appearance on The Doctors, Dr. Zeidler once again lended her expertise on one of the most advanced devices for breast reconstruction: Aeroform. In a lecture titled “My Experience in Breast Reconstruction with AirXpander,” Dr. Zeidler described the incredible benefits of the Aeroform device, which allows women to control the degree and timing of their breast expansion to prepare for breast reconstruction. Dr. Zeidler also performed a lecture about her unique techniques for fat grafting for the breast, and how advanced devices like HydraSolve and PureGraft allow for smooth, predictable, and long-lasting results.

An Experienced Lecturer

Like many of the faculty members, Dr. Zeidler discussed the innovative techniques she’s pioneered, such as her and Dr. Berkowitz’s autoimplant breast lift technique and the use of acellular dermal matrixes. Dr. Zeidler discussed the long-lasting lift capabilities of the autoimplant breast lift and how acellular dermal matrixes provide crucial support for delicate reconstruction and revision procedures. Having seen so much during her illustrious career, she also drew on her unique experiences to moderate an international panel of surgeons who discussed their most difficult cases and how they solved them.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting was truly a meeting of the masters. If you’d like to see more pictures from Dr. Zeidler’s visit to Spain, visit our Instagram page below.
