Hello there! I'm a recent convert to yoga after I had my plastic surgery. According to my doctor, Dr. Magallona of PCPS (, yoga is a very good post op exercise to retain my skin's elasticity and to tone it as well. I'm glad that I listened to him because the effects are really obvious; and not only that, I think that this is my first step in gaining a healthy lifestyle.
