Get Your Squeeze On with Compression Garments After Lipo

Our patients often wonder why they have to traipse around feeling like they’re wearing Spanx for weeks after they have liposuction. Isn’t the fat gone? So, what’s with the squeezing everything in? Dr. Herte recommends her patients wear compression garments for around six weeks following most liposuction procedures. There are three really good reasons why. […]

Implant revision is not a popular procedure, but it usually is a necessary one. Before having augmentation, patients often wonder why someone would need revision surgery (unless an implant ruptures, obviously).

These Gummy Bears Aren’t Candy

If you’ve been considering having breast augmentation, you know you have many decisions to make beyond just the overall procedure. Of course, you’ll need to choose the type of implants you want. In the past you’ve had two choices, saline or silicone. But in 2012 a new type of implant entered your realm of options […]


Peeling Your Way to Better Skin

Chemical peels have been around as long as women have paid attention to the condition of their skin. Cleopatra could be the first true proponent, as she used the lactic acid from milk as a mild peel on her facial skin. At the Herte Center, we use TCA (trichloracetic acid) peels to freshen the complexions […]
