Vectra Imaging for Rhinoplasty in Pittsburgh

The best candidates for rhinoplasty have realistic expectations about what surgery can accomplish. When prospective patients visit our practice for a nasal surgery consultation with Dr. Cherup, they are carefully assessed to ensure that they are physically, emotionally, and financially prepared to undergo this major cosmetic procedure. The number one question I am asked during a consult […]

Exercising After Breast Augmentation

I was the worst patient after my first breast augmentation surgery.  I wanted to get back to exercising after my breast augmentation and didn’t follow the instructions on how much exercising I should do following the surgery. Maybe that is why I got such BAD capsular contracture after the first round and NO issues after […]

The Doctor is Sick but her Patients will not Suffer Ever

I wrote this blog in 2010 and find it pertinent now that Mom has died 2 years ago yesterday. My patient work is therapy that helps me feel fulfilled even when my personal family problems are large. In short , I always take care of my patient problems before I attend to myself. Of course, […]

Breast Augmentation After 40

It is not frequent that women over 40 come to me with the explicit desire for a breast augmentation . When they do, I have to determine immediately to classify their needs.  There are 2 kinds of breast augmentation after 40: those that need volume and those that need volume and a significant lift, or […]

Swelling after Tummy Tuck Surgery?

I perform a lot of Pittsburgh tummy tucks and everyone complains about lower abdominal swelling and the discomfort that it causes after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery. The bad news is that lower abdominal swelling after tummy tuck surgery occurs in every patient. The degree to which it is observable or becomes a problem varies greatly based […]

Botox and Filler Patients – Buyer Beware

Susan Mowry, R.N. and Dr. Lori L. Cherup have seen many Botox and filler complications recently in patients treated by poorly-trained cosmeticians, NOT board-certified medical professionals like us. Buyer Beware! Patients are often lured in by discounted prices on Botox and filler.  YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! At Radiance Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin […]

Driving after Breast Augmentation Surgery

Patients often question me:  When is driving after breast augmentation surgery allowed? I wish all patients were stoic, and smart, but they are not.  I love to see a patient driving after breast augmentation surgery to her first post-op visit, usually on POD #2. That tells me she is doing well, her pain is under control, and […]

Aesthetic Surgery Costs

Most patients looked surprised when they see the price tag for aesthetic surgery.They want to know why aesthetic surgery costs a lot. In fact, it doesn’t. The truth is – aesthetic, or cosmetic surgery costs the same as reconstructive surgery – the patient just doesn’t know the costs because reconstructive surgery is often covered by […]

Labiaplasty by Dr. Cherup: Part I

Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure for altering the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia), which are the folds of skin surrounding the human female vulva.  I perform labiaplasty surgery on a regular basis at our Radiance Surgical Center, located in Pittsburgh, PA. Patients present to a plastic surgeon who offers labiaplasty surgery because they often feel that  their gynecologist […]

Labiaplasty Surgery by Dr. Cherup: Part II

What is Labiaplasty surgery? In general, labiaplasty surgery involves the female perineum, which includes the vulva (labia majora and minora, and clitoris), perineal body (muscle between the vagina and anus), the vagina, and the anus. This anatomy  should look “normal” to a woman. Enlargement or stretching of any of these tissues can lead to sexual […]
