Voluma so far…

Allergan, the company that makes Botox, breast implants and Juviderm products is now heavily pushing its latest filler Voluma. I see it marketed on TV all the time before the evening news. From the commercials it really is not clear to me that their beautiful models have had treatment with Voluma, but boy they sure are very attractive. For those of you who know me, and I hope if your reading this by now you at least feel like you know me, I am skeptical of new things. I don’t jump on bandwagons easily, but so far I really like… Read More

Awesome Tan – Avoiding Cosmetic Surgery if You Can

I am guilty of spending time on the roof of a community hospital in New Jersey during my general surgery training, longer ago than I care to remember. It was a quiet hospital but nonetheless I was rotated there because they had to have a surgical resident in house for the occasional trauma. Stuck there on summer weekends, I spent most of my downtime reading surgery and cosmetic surgery journals  on the roof of the building and while there I acquired an awesome tan. I wish I knew then what I know now. The sun, the tan, while desperately appealing, is… Read More

But here I’ll provide some options each with pros and cons. Laser Tattoo Removal: Lasers can remove certain tattoos. The best results are when the tattoo has dark ink. Lasers target black best.

What goes together? More Than One Procedure of Plastic Surgery

When a patient comes in for a consult I never want that patient to feel as though I am trying to add additional plastic surgery, but it is my job is to point out where certain combinations are more powerful than just the one surgery alone. In plastic surgery there are certain procedures that must at least be considered together. Some classic examples: Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty really needs to be considered with the chin. The reshaping of the nose has a dramatic effect on the profile. If the chin is receding only half the battle is won. Chin implant may be… Read More

Temporary Rhinoplasty?

A number of people have seen us over the past few years asking about the liquid or temporary rhinoplasty. Popularized by a dermatologist in California, it is essentially a technique of using injectable fillers to alter the shape of the nose. If a patient has a bump on top of the nose the bump can be camouflaged by adding filler just above it. In some cases mild asymmetry can be improved. Eventually, fillers will reabsorb and the procedure will have to be repeated. I think it is a good option for people who are not ready to or healthy enough… Read More
