As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I get a lot of questions from my patients. My team and I want to make sure that you always feel comfortable and informed at every point in your aesthetic journey, whether you are ready to book your procedure or are still gathering information.
Below, I answer some of the the most common questions I get.
Q: Do you have to get saline implants to get the “no scar on the breast” incision?
A: While some surgeons only insert saline implants using the no scar on the breast technique (also called the transaxillary approach), I have the experience and expertise to safely and effectively use it for both silicone and saline implants.
Q: How long is mommy makeover recovery?
A: The recovery time for a mommy makeover depends on which procedures are included in your surgery. Many women return to work in 2 to 3 weeks and to exercise in 4 to 6 weeks. Your recovery time away from work may vary depending on the physical demands of your job.
Q: Will I have visible scarring after a facelift?
A: I take great care to hide facelift incisions meticulously in the natural creases near the ears. You can get a better idea of how inconspicuous these facelift incisions are by visiting our website’s before-and-after photo gallery.
Q: Is Dr. Burden board certified?
A: Yes! I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, making me a board-certified plastic surgeon. I am also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Q: How long do Brazilian butt lift results last?
A: Brazilian butt lift results are generally long lasting, barring any significant weight loss. Your body will process some of the initial fat injected over time, but the remaining fat cells should stay in place for years to come.

Q: Is there parking available at your office?
A: Yes, complimentary parking is available in our facility’s private lot.
Q: Is your surgery center accredited?
A: Yes, the Destin Surgery Center is fully accredited by the AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care). It offers welcoming, concierge-level care while upholding the highest standards of safety, sanitation, and technology.
Q: Do you accept Florida medicaid?
A: The cosmetic procedures offered at our practice are considered elective and are not typically covered by insurance. However, some procedures deemed medically necessary, such as breast reduction, may be eligible for reimbursements. Please contact your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage.
