Breast Implants Have Nothing To Do With A, B, C

breast implants

If you are considering undergoing a breast implant plastic surgery procedure, one of the most important decisions you’d make involves the size of breast implants.  Choosing the right implant size is critical to ensure that the outcome is what you wished for. And it also makes sure that your new breasts won’t hinder your ability to enjoy all of your favorite activities.  However, when determining the right breast implants size, many women think in terms of cup sizes only. In this blog, I will explain why that’s not the right approach to take. The Initial Consultation During our consultation, I… Read More

Renee Zellweger, Humiliation, And Cosmetic Surgery: Dispelling The Stigma

renee zellweger after cosmetic surgery

America’s celebrity obsession is nothing new. Humans are a social species and celebrities seem to be at the top of the social hierarchy. They are objects of our devotion and we “ordinary people” worship them. People look to celebrities for several reasons: one is just plain curiosity about how these high-status individuals live and how they can emulate them, and second, it makes for a good conversation starter. But that’s not all.  We also tend to project our moral righteousness and anxieties on these people. The best example? Our current fixation with the appearance of Renee Zellweger.  When Zellweger appeared… Read More

What to Ask Before Getting a Nose Job

nose job

A nose job or rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery that alters the shape of your nose. For the right patient, rhinoplasty can help restore facial balance. Some rhinoplasties remove bumps or humps on the nose. Some can change the shape and position of the nasal tip. Some even enlarge or elevate the bridge. The key is to set realistic goals when you consult with your plastic surgeon. Here are some of the most important questions you should ask yourself — and your surgeon — prior to your nose job. What Type of Nose Job Surgeon Is Best for Me?… Read More

Why More Men Are Turning to Cosmetic Surgery

plastic surgery for men

While plastic surgery has been largely marketed to females over the years, today, more than ever, men are choosing to rejuvenate their appearance as well.  But can men get plastic surgery just like women? Of course! In fact, since 2000, there has been a 29 percent increase in male cosmetic procedures in the United States. Some of the plastic surgery for men that tends to be most popular includes fillers, tummy tucks, liposuction, and rhinoplasty.  Why the Shift in Male Cosmetic Surgery Interest? There are several reasons for this major shift in male interest in cosmetic surgery.  First and foremost,… Read More

Putting Your Best Face Forward With a Facelift

facelift

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I help my patients address the signs of facial aging on a daily basis. As plastic surgeons, we have many tools in our toolbox, so-to-speak, to help slow down, and in some cases, turn back the aging process… at least for a while.  While botox and fillers may be right for the younger patient trying to hide subtle changes of aging, chemical peels may do better for the next level of patients. And for those with finer lines and wrinkles, a facelift is a worthy option to explore. Specific situations where a facelift is a… Read More

Five Ways to Accentuate the Appearance of Your Brow Lift

brow lift

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and begins to droop. One of the areas where this is most prominent is on the brow line. It’s common to be frustrated by a sagging brow and eyelids. Fortunately, a brow lift or browpexy can gently lift the brow back up. Eyelid surgery can make the lids look less heavy and more youthful. With or without eyelid or brow surgery there are some things that patients can do to help accentuate their brows: Have Your Brows Professionally Shaped While natural brows are certainly “in” right now, some men and women may… Read More

How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

forehead wrinkles

Of all the types of wrinkles that can appear on the skin, forehead wrinkles are often the most noticeable and the most annoying for my patients. Below, I’ll discuss why forehead wrinkles tend to develop so prominently and what you can do to get rid of them. Why Do Forehead Wrinkles Form? Certainly, time is the biggest culprit when it comes to forehead wrinkles. Aging is the number one cause. However, several other factors may cause forehead lines as well. Namely, over-exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun or tanning beds can exacerbate the signs of aging and… Read More

Four Tummy Tuck Recovery Tips

tummy tuck recovery tips

Thinking about getting a tummy tuck? This is a popular procedure that can improve the appearance of your abdomen particularly after weight loss or childbearing. It is commonly part of a “Mommy Makeover” which restores both breasts and abdomen after childbearing, or as an independent surgery.  It is commonly used to tighten skin after significant weight loss. Below, we’ll explain what a tummy tuck is and a few tips you should follow after your procedure in order to recover properly. What Is a Tummy Tuck? A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can create a flatter, smoother abdomen through the removal of excess… Read More

Four Injectables That Slow Down the Aging Process

injectables

Anti-aging injections or “injectables” offer a minimally invasive solution to wrinkled and creased skin, shallow facial contours, thin lips, recessed scars, sagging eyelids, and more. Some injectables that are referred to as dermal fillers essentially restore plumpness, volume, and youth to the face. Who Needs Anti-Wrinkle Injectables? I generally recommend injectables to adults who have lost some of their skin’s elasticity. As we age, we naturally lose collagen in the skin. In turn, that bouncy, plump appearance of youth can be lost. Many factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and overall lifestyle can also influence a patient’s need for injectables…. Read More

Dealing with Gynecomastia

gynecomastia

For many men, gynecomastia (“man boobs”) is an embarrassing and frustrating issue. Fortunately, at my practice, male breast reduction is an effective solution for most men that can help. Below, I’ll outline exactly what gynecomastia is and how male breast augmentation can help this common problem. What Is Gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is the enlargement of male breast tissue, and it can happen at any time in life. At some stages of life (for example, during infancy and puberty), gynecomastia may be completely normal and is generally the result of changing hormones. However, other causes of enlarged breast tissue during young adult… Read More
