Tummy tucks are not typically covered by insurance, so you’ll want to get quotes from multiple doctors before committing to a surgery. Patients will be advised to avoid heavy lifting for two to three weeks following their tummy tuck. And Dr. Rady Rahban, a board certified plastic surgeon and host of the podcast, Plastic Surgery Uncensored, says to wait six weeks before you resume all activity, including intimacy.
The more extreme fixes offered by medi-spas, and plastic surgeons are reflected in increased COVID-era numbers, according to the two plastic surgeons we spoke to. “We have seen a 30% increase in plastic surgery nationwide during the pandemic, including at my practice,” says Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Rady Rahban. “The number one reason is the Zoom effect. Next, as a result of the pandemic, people are wearing masks which can allow them to heal from facial surgery and at the same time be covered up. Number three, people have saved a lot of money that they haven’t spent on vacation and other luxury items like entertainment which they can now put towards plastic surgery.”
It’s not uncommon for patients to find doctors via social media like Instagram and Snapchat. These platforms, when used appropriately, can be a good indicator of the kind of doctor you’re getting, says Dr. Rahban. You can get a sense of the doctor’s personality and the kinds of surgeries they do, “But when a doctor utilizes it as an entertainer or for shock factor, it tells a lot about [their] professionalism.” Meaning, popularity is more important to them than patient care.
Unless your insurance company thinks the surgery is medically necessary, it won’t be covered, says Dr. Val. Womp womp. One sitch where breast implants are covered by insurance is when they’re part of the breast reconstruction process after undergoing a mastectomy, she says. For breast reductions, Rady Rahban, MD, adds that insurance will sometimes pay if the breasts are so large they create symptoms of back pain, neck pain, or rashes under the breasts.
Do your homework before going through with a rhinoplasty. For instance, make sure your surgeon specializes in rhinoplasty, and look through the before and after photos to make sure they have the same aesthetic you’re going for, says Rady Rahban, MD, FACS, board-certified plastic surgeon in private practice.
Once you’ve chosen the best surgeon for you, it’s important to discuss all medications and supplements that you take because there are certain ones you’ll need to avoid before surgery.
Not all celebrity breast augmentations are shiny gold examples of what to ask for at your surgeon’s office when in the market for a natural-looking result. “The issue with someone like Gwen Stefani is because she started out with no breast tissue, I think her augmentation was overzealous,” says Dr. Rahban. “They’re too projecting, they’re too round and their too full in the upper area, making them look unnatural,” he says. “That doesn’t mean that they don’t look pretty, just less natural.”
A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon says the bigger picture is the issue of medical tourism, something Americans often seek because of issues of affordability in the U.S. But Dr. Rady Rahban believes going to other countries like Mexico for plastic surgery is too risky.
“You don’t have anywhere near the same rights as you do in the states and frankly you’re at the mercy of these clinics,” said Rahban. “Unfortunately, surgery is one of those things where if you pay more you don’t get more, but if you pay less you get less.”

According toboard certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rady Rahban, recovery can be broken up into two categories: immediate and long-term.
“Immediate recovery, meaning when you can go back to work, depends on the areas that are liposuctioned and the technique used,” he explains.
This can take anywhere from 5 to 7 days before you can return to work and 4 to 6 weeks before you can get back to physical activities, such as exercise.
A long-term recovery typically lasts 3 months. This allows swelling to decrease.
There is a famous saying, “The mother of all inventions is necessity.” As a plastic surgeon it is often assumed, I love the drama and the sensationalized aspects of plastic surgery. That is so far from the truth. I am often at odds with the plastic surgery community because I hate those type of programs on TV. I hate when plastic surgery is displayed as sensationalized and as a result, I am trying to combat some of the negative aspects in the plastic surgery world that you see on social media and debunk the not realistic expectations. What I mean is, young people doing procedures they should not be doing, women going to random clinics to put fat in their butts and then dying. There are a lot of horror stories that come out of plastic surgery — and when I look at my own practice and I would say a third of my practice is revisional, meaning people are coming back to redo things. I decided I was going to have my own platform and use my own voice to educate people on how to navigate the plastic surgery process in a way that would leave them feeling better and not worse. This program was a birth child of my frustrations and my desire to do something good.
“While nipple enhancement may mean making the nipples more pronounced, over projection of nipples can be a major source of embarrassment and anxiety for some patients,” adds plastic surgeon Dr. Rady Rahban. “Select patients can achieve a more attractive nipple through surgical correction and reduction. It is a quick, easy, and permanent solution for nipples that project too far out!”
Plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills may have the green light to resume elective and cosmetic surgeries, but they’re moving forward with caution … and some aren’t ready to reopen.
Dr. Rady Rahban tells TMZ … his offices are reopening for everything from tummy tucks, nose jobs and breast-lifts to mommy makeovers, but there’s gonna be some major precautions due to the novel coronavirus.
Dr. Rahban says people have been clamoring for surgeries during the outbreak, but appointments are now open and this week he’s gonna start seeing patients again.
Among the new safety procedures at Dr. Rahban’s practice — the lobby will always be empty, patients will text when they arrive, wait and then head directly to a waiting room to ensure there is no contact between patients.
Face masks will be required for all of Dr. Rahban’s patients and staff, and patients will have their temperatures checked upon arrival. There will also be a pre-screening over the phone, with questions about recent travel and exposure to the virus.

Dr. Rady Rahban is the 2020 Honoree of the Hollywood Beauty Award recognizing his numerous revision and corrective plastic surgeries with successful life-changing effects for men and women worldwide.
Dr. Rady Rahban, a Beverly Hills Board Certified Plastic Surgeon tells HL, “There is a three prong approaches to noninvasive procedures that enhance one’s red carpet appearance whether for celebrities or civilians.
“First Neuro Toxins (Botox and Dysport) that modulate wrinkles by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The best results are seen when a patient receives Botox every 4-6 months. Most popular areas to treat are the forehead, in between the brows, and the crow’s feet (around the eyes).
“Second, Hyaluronic Acid fillers for volume replacement (Restylane, Juvederm). Most common areas treated are the under eyes, lips, and cheeks. As we age, we lose fat in our face which has previously kept us “youthful” looking. Procedure should be done at least 2 weeks prior to an event just in case of any swelling or bruising.
The annual Hollywood Beauty Awards (HBAs), founded by Michele Elyzabeth, will celebrate their 6th year honoring the architects of beauty on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at the Taglyan, recognizing talent in hair, makeup, photography and styling for Film, TV, Music, the red carpet and editorial, as well as special honorees.

Performing revision and corrective surgeries, he aims to eradicate the stigma, proving its life-changing effects for the confidence of men and women worldwide.
Fashion tape, Photoshop and makeup artists who double as magicians make it hard to tell who in Hollywood has opted for breast augmentation and who hasn’t–and, as Pittsburgh plastic surgeon Leo R. McCafferty, MD reminds us, when the procedure is entrusted to a board certified plastic surgeon, it makes it even harder to tell. “The best celebrity breast augmentation and revision is one that’s undetectable,” he says.
Newport Beach, CA plastic surgeon Tim Sayed, MD agrees, adding, “some of the more aesthetically well-done and balanced breast augmentations are the ones where you ask, ‘did she get them done or is it a really good bra?’”
We tapped some of the top plastic surgeons in the country to comment on both rumored and on-the-record breast augmentations and revisions. Below, the cases they believe to be the most well-done–and a few of the worst.
An FDA recall on Allergan’s Biocell textured implants may affect some cross-fit trainers and yoga instructors in Los Angeles, but only about five percent of breast implants sold in the U.S. are textured, as opposed to smooth.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a voluntary nationwide recall of certain types of textured breast implants on Wednesday due to their cancer risk.
The manufacturer Allergan recalled its Biocell textured breast implants from suppliers and doctors’ offices, in order to protect from breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).
Wendy Williams’ breast implants look incredible after 25 years without any maintenance! Amazing, right? — Three board-certified plastic surgeons explained to HollywoodLife why her chest is still so perky after so long!
Wendy Williams, 54, revealed the secret to her elevated chest during her show on May 20 — breast implants! Before you think, “Well, obviously!”, there’s more to the talk show host’s key to perky breasts. Wendy explained how in 1994, she chose to have her implants surgically placed under the breast muscle. “I’m telling you, under-the-muscle implants since 1994!”, she confessed, adding, “They still stay up! If you’re going to do it, go under the muscle!” Breast implants can be inserted in multiple ways, one of which includes, on top of the breast, with incisions that can be made through the armpit, stomach, nipple, or under the breast.
