I am so honored to announce that I have been nominated for ‘Best Plastic Surgeon for Breasts in Atlanta’ by Best Self Magazine.

Receiving this nomination is very dear to me but in order to win, I would really love your support.
Voting is officially underway and winners will be selected based on the total number of Facebook votes received. It’s quick to vote and can be done in 3 easy steps; here’s how to do it:

For many patients starting their plastic surgery experience, safety and satisfaction with the end result is a top concern, no matter what procedure is chosen. With any cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery procedure there are always inherent risks that can arise but it is often less known that there are in fact ways you can help improve results before and after a procedure is performed. Below I share the top three ways that patients can actively participate in improving their overall plastic surgery results.
Find the best surgeon for you. Picking the right doctor to help you achieve optimal results is important. Not every doctor specializes in every plastic surgery procedure and you should find a surgeon who is skilled at the procedure you are interested in to help reduce the likelihood of being unhappy with your results. Setting up consultations with numerous doctors is a great way to start the decision process. This is the time where patients get to ask questions regarding the procedure, the techniques that would be used and evaluate the rapport the doctor encouraged during your meeting (do they answer all of your questions thoroughly, do they have good before and after results, are they warm and seem to have the patient’s interest at heart or are they just cold and dismissive?). Not every doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon therefore it’s important to check into their credentials to make sure they have completed the rigorous curriculum necessary to have earned the trusted stamp of approval from the medical board.
Visualize your results. One of the most innovative technologies I have been fortunate to adopt is the Vectra® 3D digital imaging system. Utilized during the consultation process, what makes this system so great is that it uses six angled cameras to produce simulated images of a patient’s body, and then I am able to use the images and let the patients preview the end result. For instance, if a breast augmentation patient is in between two different sized breast implants, we can “try on” the implants using Vectra® imaging to create post-operative views. It’s one thing for me to describe to patients potential results. However, in my opinion, it’s more valuable to be able to also physically show patients their projected results because it can also help ease some of the anxiety patients may feel as they approach their surgical date.
Follow instructions. Once a patient leaves our office we send them home with detailed post-operative care instructions. Instructions include what to expect in the few days/weeks of recovery to proper ways to caring for surgical sites and returning to normal activity. Sure you may physically feel great, but it would be a shame for you to over exert yourself and end up causing more harm than necessary. We give you these instructions because your body needs time to properly heal after a plastic surgery procedure. For this reason, I cannot stress enough how much important it is to schedule and attend your follow-up consultations so that your healing can be examined to monitor your progress and make sure unforeseen issues don’t arise.
With any surgical procedure it is difficult to predict the final result but being proactive in all stages of your plastic surgery journey can have more benefit than not.

AYA™ Medical Spa has a special place in my heart because it is owned and operated by many of the board-certified plastic surgeons of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. – one of the Southeast’s most esteemed plastic surgery practices and my home away from home. We wanted to offer our patients skin rejuvenation treatments beyond cosmetic surgery but were limited in the services we were able to provide patients here in our medical office. The concept of AYA™ was created to provide medical-grade services more conveniently for our patients in the serenity of a spa-like atmosphere.
Join me on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 from 5pm-8pm at AYA™ Medical Spa’s Spring Open House Event at their Phipps Plaza location as we celebrate our patient’s continued support and provide a relaxed evening of food, refreshments, skincare savings and additional event-only specials. This year, I am pleased to share that I will be attending the event and providing complimentary plastic surgery consultations ($100 value)! To make sure I have enough time to properly spend with each patient, all complimentary consultations are by appointment only and can be scheduled by calling AYA™ at 404-842-1772 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.

I look forward to seeing new and familiar faces at the open house and if you have any questions in the meantime or would like to learn more about the cosmetic and reconstructive procedures I offer, don’t hesitate to contact my office. You can also stay connected with me, Dr. Allyson Maske, on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for more events and plastic surgery updates.
Many women synonymously associate breast enhancement with breast augmentation when in fact, breast enhancement is a general term to describe various possible procedures for the breasts: lift, reduction, augmentation or a combination of more than one breast procedure. A number of questions I frequently hear from my breast enhancement patients start with the question “what is the best?” Patients often want to know the best age, breast size, implant type or shape will best suit them.
The great thing about plastic surgery is that it is 100% personalized for you and as a board certified plastic surgeon my goal is to help you achieve your optimal plastic surgery results, in the most natural way possible. This means meeting during a consultation to evaluate the look you’re going for and then recommending the appropriate surgical plan that works specifically for your body’s frame instead of what society or other outside influences may perceive as “perfect.” In a recent YouTube video I discuss several concerns Atlanta breast enhancement patients have as well as some of the considerations we, as surgeons, take into account when working with each of our patients:
