Tummy Tuck Can Be Customized for You
May 8, 2019
First of all, congratulations! Your achievement is something to be proud of, and you deserve to enjoy the results of your hard work. A tummy tuck is the right procedure for removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to create a sleek and slender midsection. A board-certified plastic surgeon can perform an extended tummy tuck to remove more skin and improve the flanks and hips. He or she can also discuss your options for the skin on your back. Liposuction is often incorporated...
Can I get a good result with just implants, no lift?
Take Your Time in Deciding on a Breast Lift
May 8, 2019
Thank you for your question. It does appear that you would get the best results from a breast lift with implants, and there are many advantages to combining the two into one operation. However, it is ultimately your decision. Adding implants to breasts that already sag can exacerbate the problem, and you may be frustrated with the result. However, if you’re not sure about a lift, you can proceed with just the breast augmentation and see how you feel once you've fully healed. You may be s...

Eyelid Surgery Recovery Is Quick
May 8, 2019
Hi, Katykitten. You appear to be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. The recovery time is about a week for regular activity and 2 weeks for most of the bruising to fade away. Many of my patients return to work after only a couple days, depending on their work environment. Cost can vary quite a bit depending on your geographic area and whether you are doing upper lids only or upper and lower lids done. The best way to educate yourself is to consult with several certified plastic surgeons in...
Conservative facelift. How do I find the right procedure for me?
Ready for a Facelift?
May 8, 2019
The photos you have provided show very few noticeable lines, creases, or sagging on the lower face—all concerns addressed by a facelift. If you feel it is time for treatment to preserve your more youthful appearance, I recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon. You may also be a good candidate for injectables or minimally invasive treatments such as fat grafting to the face. Good luck!
Any recommendations to slim my face and improve my profile? Thinking of doing a mini face
Facelift for Laxity and Jowling
May 8, 2019
If your concerns are neck laxity and jowling, a full facelift may be the appropriate choice. I like to combine the facelift procedure with fat transfer to the face to add youthful volume back to the face where we lose it as we age. A board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to help you determine precisely what treatment(s) will achieve your goals. Good luck!
I am one week post op, are my nipples healing normally after circle lift?
Benneli Lift
Jun 15, 2018
This procedure requires a suture that involves a purse stitch that causes bunching around the nipple for several months. This is the Benneli lift. The key to a good outcome is a close relationship with your doctor.

Jun 15, 2018
A unit is still a unit. Botox is only sold by the unit from the distributor. Try a different clinic, or request for a specific unit dosage. It may take a wile for you to find your perfect injector. Keep looking!

Jun 15, 2018
By lookin at your picture, you are a beautiful girl and you would benefit from eyelid surgery and a brow lift. You may want to consider a mini facelift, not that you need it, but it would slow the process of aging for many years but come.

Can I receive lipo 360 + BBL if I have discal hernias?

The answer is yes. Just remember that you may be stiff after surgery and position is critical for recovery.Overall the procedure should not effect a change in your back.

Hi there! Pliagis is great! Sound like you might be better off trying a different laser platform though. Ice is also really great.

I'm sorry, I believe this is not a CO2 Laser. Maybe you are doing the Fraxel?  A CO2 laser will lead to about 15+ days down time. here Is a link below with more information

Can microneedling with PRP and laser Genesis be done together in one session?

May 26, 2018
I just love the new and combined modalities avalilable for treatment of the face!  For the patients benefit, combined treatments such as microneedling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) or my preferred PRF(platelet rich fibrin) as well as YAG laser (genesis) can be useful. If the patient has red spots, tiny blood vessels around the nose or just overall redness, a Laser genesis can be performed first followed by a PRF, microneedling procedure.  The PRF should be left on the face for 8 hours.   Th...
Subglandular round implants: smooth or textured?
Implants placed in the subglandular position
May 26, 2018
You are asking a very good question.  Many plastic surgeons place implants in only one plane,  Suppectoral for example.   Subglandular implants can offer a great result in women who want no movement when they flex their pectoralis (chest muscles) such as athletes, body builders and even  women surgeons.  Subglandular shaped implants can also offer some effective lift and can correct a constricted based breast.   Now as for smooth versus textured.  If using a round implant, I would recommend ...
