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

How to Take Care of Your Lips in the Summer Sun

lip care tips

Much of lip care is about having the right products available at the right times. During the summer months, while many people concern themselves only with their skin by using sunscreen (which is great!), I always remind my patients not to forget about their lips. While certainly a continuation of the skin and an admittedly small part of the face, lip care during the summer is crucial to maintaining a flawless smile. Below, we’ll go over some key lip care tips to follow this summer. But first, let’s talk lip augmentation. Considering Lip Augmentation? Here’s What You Need to Know… Read More

Transform and Enhance Your Body This Summer

There’s certainly no “ideal” season for transforming and enhancing your body by visiting a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. Still, summer can be an excellent time of year to invest in your appearance. Most people have more free time in the summer, and it’s also easier to transition into your new body. Rather than having to answer endless questions about your recent physical changes, you can take the time to rest and ease into your new appearance and return to school or work rejuvenated, recovered, and ready to take on the world. Popular Cosmetic Procedures During Summer While I perform a wide… Read More

Undergoing any type of breast enhancement surgery is a big decision.  My patients, understandably, often have several questions when they come in for a consultation, which is excellent.

Three Signs You May Need a Breast Lift

If you like your figure in a bra, but when the bra comes off your breasts go south, you may want to consider breast lift surgery. Time, gravity, childbearing and weight loss can all contribute to loosening of the breast skin and in some cases the loss of breast volume.   What Happens During a Breast Lift? Breast lift, also known as mastopexy simply removes the extra loose skin of the breast. Imagine if you will, taking fabric out of a bra that is too loose. There is almost no change in the size of the breast with a breast… Read More

Do Men Get Tummy Tucks?

do men get tummy tucks

Yes, they do. I see it more and more in my practice. But the consideration and selection process is very different from my female patients. In the female patient, pregnancy has caused the abdominal wall to weaken and stretch. When the babies are born and the uterus has returned to its normal size there is a lot of room to take back with a tummy tuck (tightening the abdominal wall and removing excess skin). We have room to help flatten the abdominal wall. Men only accomplish this if they have lost a lot of weight. In weight loss, the fat… Read More
