During the Holiday months most people find it hard to keep up with the workout routine.  Having two holidays back to back that expect a lot of eating and sweets it is no wonder why losing weight is always on top of the Resolution List.  The fact of the matter is that if we don’t see results quickly with diet and exercise we tend to give up and wait till next year. Well now you don’t have to. Liposuction can help change your body into a more pleasing shape. It can melt away all those pesky fat bulges and give… Read More

Skin Care Tips during Cold Months in DC, Maryland

The season brings many delightful things- time with family, presents, cookies, pumpkin pie and more. But one not so marvelous thing during the season of gatherings, feasts and joy is the cold weather. During cold months, protecting your skin should be everyone’s top priority, old and young. Within DC, Rockville, Maryland and Northern Virginia, low freezing temperatures, snow and winds; scarves and other types of outwear accessories are the must haves to keep from frostbite happening on the face, ears, neck and mouth.

Obesity is Costly – Especially for Women

General speaking women have higher living expenses then men- makeup, hair products, skin care products, waxing, weekly manicure and pedicures, monthly facials, quarterly microdermabrasion, feminine products, etc. So, it shouldn’t surprise us to hear obese women have higher living expenses than obese men and non-obese women. ¹Adult women who are obese often spend as much as $4,879 extra towards living expenses, while men often rack up about $2,646 in additional expenses incurred for being obese. Obesity can have an affect on individual’s personal life, as it can cause people to feel self-conscious about their bodies. However, many people don’t realize… Read More

Use Botox For Migraines

We have noticed for years that Patients of ours with a history of migraines have seen subjective improvements in their migraine symptoms when using Botox even for cosmetic purposes. As of last week the food and drug administration approved the use of Botox to treat patients with chronic migraines.  Chronic Migraines are defined as migraines more than 14 days each month each lasting more than four hours. While we continue to perform Botox largely for cosmetic purposes  it is nice to know that our observations are founded and that this treatment can serve a dual role. It is unclear at… Read More

Balancing Breasts – Breast Augmentation

I think there are a lot of subtleties about breast augmentation that the public is not aware of.  Breasts by their very nature are never exactly the same before or after plastic surgery.  It is common for patients to have asymmetric breast volume and shape.  It is common to have different degrees of droop.  Many women have one breast that is slightly higher on the chest wall than its counterpart.  In these patients, the fold of the breast and the nipple are slightly higher.  Often the underlying muscles are very different as well; the dominant hand pectoral muscle is often… Read More

Liposuction is not about the fat!

Each day in my Maryland and Baltimore Maryland offices I see people in consultation for Liposuction. While Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures that I perform I find that often it is the most misunderstood. Liposuction is not only about the fat—it’s about the overlying skin. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from just about any area of the body but the key to a nice looking result is having good skin tone. When I evaluate my Clientele in Maryland and Baltimore Maryland for Liposuction, with their permission, I pinch them to assess the skin tone. If… Read More

The Best Botox®

Every day I see ads in newspapers, magazines and circulars offering Botox® at insanely low prices. It leaves me wondering how patients really know that they’re getting good Botox treatment. Botox is reconstituted with sterile water. Add more water and you may stretch a bottle farther, but you also may see less of a result. Older Botox may not work as well as a freshly opened bottle. So, paying for Botox by the site can mean a better or worse result, depending on how generous or frugal your doctor is. In my own practice we reconstitute the Botox® strictly according to… Read More

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Meeting

This week I attended the annual meeting of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery here in D.C. at the National Harbor.  This meeting brings together plastic surgeons from all over the United States and the world. While it would seem to the outside observer that this meeting is all about the plastic surgeons and the innovations in the exhibit halls, in reality this meeting is about safety, consistency and predictability for our patients. Early in its evolution cosmetic plastic surgery was an offshoot and little publicized branch of plastic and reconstructive surgery.  Surgeons had different approaches and techniques that… Read More

When is the best time for cosmetic surgery?

The best time for cosmetic surgery is when you have the time and support to recover. Each operation that I perform has different timing in terms of average recovery.   Things that require pulling or stretching of muscles like tummy tucks for example will need a longer recovery than skin tightening procedures such as breast lift.  While each patient is different I offer some general rules of thumb: 1. Give yourself off about a week for all but the most minor procedures: It is better to be pleasantly surprised and need less recovery time than to need more time and not… Read More
