Rhinoplasty – Preparing for Surgery – Virginia

Tag Archives: Richmond Plastic Surgery


The more you know in preparation for your rhinoplasty, the better your results and overall experience will be. Rhinoplasty is a sophisticated plastic surgery that requires you to stay in communication with your surgeon as well do your own preparation.

In the time leading up to your rhinoplasty, you will be asked to get a lab test or medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust current prescriptions, stop smoking and avoid taking aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs—aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication complicate surgery as they increase bleeding.

An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Burton or Dr. Reps Sundin will guide you through the steps of your rhinoplasty by giving you specific instructions about what to do the night prior to the surgery, what kind of anesthesia will be used and how to best handle your post-operative recovery. All of this will be explained to you before your procedure.

Contact us to schedule your appointment for a consultation where Dr. Reps or Dr . Burton Sundin will sit down with you at our office in Richmond and walk you through the procedure.


There is a lot of talk about the new gummy bear breast implants. The term gummy bear is the layman’s term for the newest, fifth generation of available implants. But if you are considering breast augmentation, you should know that newest isn’t necessarily the best one for you. Gummy bear implants are a “form stable” implant that is designed to look and feel more natural on a woman’s body—form stable meaning they hold their shape better. However, some women don’t like the look and feel of them.

If you are unsure about whether or not gummy bear implants are the right option for you, the best thing to do is come in for a consultation with Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin who are experienced plastic surgeons based in Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Dr. Burton and Dr. Reps Sundin will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about gummy bear implants. Feel free to contact us to schedule your appointment.

With age, the breasts begin to sag. Breast feeding, changes in weight, gravity and aging are all contributing factors to breasts beginning to sag. Richmond breast lift is a proven surgical procedure used to raise and reshape breasts. If the areola has become enlarged, it too can be restored to a smaller size at an appropriate place on the newly reshaped breast.

A consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Burton Sundin will help you  better understand how you can  benefit from breast lift surgery. During the consultation, Dr. Sundin will listen to your goals and expectations for results. With this information your surgeon will create a surgical plan to meet those goals. Each patient is different and therefore each surgical plan is custom tailored to the individual patient.
