More Ways to Avoid Fake Looking Breasts Following Implant Surgery…


My last blog covered a few points on breasts implants, 5 reasons breast augmentation with implants can look fake and the importance of having a well qualified plastic surgeon perform all of your breast procedures.

shutterstock_56659141The bottom line on breast augmentations is that all women want to look as natural and pretty as possible.  We know (surgeons) that women today of all ages and stages in life are presenting in our offices to design their own personal breast surgery treatment plan and they, more often than not, include other age defying cosmetic procedures in order to achieve the optimal youthful results they desire.

If you opt for surgery, you can get natural results without the telltale signs of a breast augmentation. More than 330,000 women opted for breast augmentation surgeries in 2012 alone. The right surgeon, helping you choose the right size and shape is the key.

IT’S ALL ABOUT SIZE and SHAPE … When it comes to implants… what looks good on one woman may not look right on another.  One size and shape does not fit all!  Several factors need to be considered so that you end up with the ideal look for your body.  Here are those factors:

  • THE WIDTH of your natural breast is a primary factor.  Your surgeon should take measurements of the base and width of your breasts in order to select an implant that fits your measurements (the size/shape of your breasts) and the build of your body. Then, a natural look can be created.
  • THE SHAPE of your body…is important when choosing implants.  If you have an athletic body, you won’t look natural with really large or narrow implants…they just won’t match your body build.  Also, on bodies with less natural tissue, it is hard to camouflage the implants.
  • YOUR COMMITMENT to WORKING OUT or sports, or other physical activity that impacts the chest must be factored in.  Bigger, heavier implants can create more stress on the breasts and cause more drooping.
  • BREAST ASYMMETRY is when one breast is larger than the other…which is typically the case.  Perfectly symmetrical breasts are rare. However, when we do breast surgeries with implants, it is possible to manipulate and mirror the size of one breast to the other to create symmetry.  This concern should always be addressed before choosing implants since it may be necessary to use two different sizes in order to achieve breast symmetry.

OK…back to the other 5 “dead giveaways”  of fake breasts:  6) Your breasts are hard.  This is often caused by the wrong type of implant or from a capsular contraction.  7)  Your breasts are puckered, rippled, wrinkled or indented.  Wrinkles form from aggressive dissection and cutting of the muscle when creating the pocket for implants that are too large for the body. The muscle becomes damaged and the skin ripples or becomes indented etc.  8)  The skin is stretched out from placing too big of an implant into a naturally small breast. 9)  The bottom part of your breasts are excessively full indicating surgery has been done and 10) You have side breast due to implants that are too large or too wide for your body frame.  They can “pop out” to the side causing an unnatural look.  See my website for complete information on breast procedures: www.DAVinciplastic.com.

Since Mom’s and Daughters and Sisters have discovered that they “age alike” they are having cosmetic procedures done together.  In fact, two thirds of all plastic surgery patients today are mothers bringing in their sisters and daughters for procedures  to encourage beautiful, youthful aging. The AAFPRS reports a 16% increase in anti-aging female family procedures this past couple years.  More on that in my next blog!

FaceLifting Injectables…the story behind this magic injection…


Dr. Steven Davison

Injectable fillers used to be just…wrinkle fillers.  Today’s Liquid Miracles…the injectable treatments I am able to use for my patients not only immediately erase lines and grooves  but also “lift” and “contour” aging facial features and flaws for men and women .

Temples, brows, upper eyelids, undereye areas, cheeks, mouth corners and jowls are all easily treated and magically lifted.

How Do They Work?  

Injectable fillers like Radiesse work immediately by replacing volume and stimulating your own collagen renewal while attracting water to the treated area. Juvederm is used in areas requiring less structural improvement…such as under the eyes and for marionette lines. Botox is used to inhibit muscle action allowing forehead furrows to relax and smooth out and also prevents future lines and wrinkles.

Old Injectables V New Injectables

When first introduced, injectables were primarily used to fill in wrinkles.  With product advancement and refined techniques, they…

Tips for Beautiful Holiday Skin, Fabulous Lips and a Perfect Nose!


Winter is definitely here and that means different skin issues for different people.  So be sure to stay well hydrated to avoid drying skin from heated buildings and use a good   moisturizer to protect against cold wind.  If you live in South Florida, remember sun    shutterstock_65466172protection is important all year around. See my tips for healthy eating to boost skin collagen and enjoy the festivities!

COLLAGEN BREAKDOWN and the WRINKLES of AGING

Collagen is the foundation of connective tissue that supports the skin’s structure.  It is essential for younger looking skin.  As we age the body makes less collagen and the quality is reduced.  Naturally occurring enzymes break down collagen causing skin to thin, lose fullness and to form wrinkles.  The sun, pollution, free radicals and smoke all contribute to collagen breakdown.  This starts occurring around age 35.  In spite of this decline, food and today’s age defying treatments can boost collagen naturally to make you look more youthful.

 COLLAGEN BOOSTING FOODS: Celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, dark green, red and orange vegetables,  fish,  berries, soy, white tea, garlic, fresh citrus fruits, oysters, proteins – eggs, nuts and lean meats.

HOLIDAY FOODS and GLOWING SKIN?? 

Remember to minimize the sugars, watch for hidden sugars, drink lots of pure water and maintain a good skin care routine to minimize dull, lackluster skin caused by rich Holiday foods.  See my previous blogs for more info on Glow N’ Go.  Www.davinciplastic.com.

FABULOUS LIPS WITH CURVES IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACEs… Lip Augmentation using today’s remarkable injectable fillers can create gorgeous, natural looking lips instantly.  There’s still time before Christmas!  Also, follow these guidelines:

·      Stop Smoking

·      Moisturize daily and Exfoliate weekly

·      Resurface the lip skin using dermabrasion, chemical peels or laser treatments to smooth away lip lines and correct uneven skin tones.

·      Fill in Lines with Injectable Fillers that plump up lips and smooth out lines in the right areas…for a sexy, healthy look.  Only Board Certified Surgeons should perform filler treatments…especially the lips!

LASERS SAFE and EFFECTIVE for SCARS

Great news!  Excessive, particularly Hypertropic scarring can be treated effectively with laser treatments.  In a recent study, 70 percent of 900 patients receiving laser therapy resulted in successful treatment.

TOP FIVE REASONS for RHINOPLASTY REVISION SURGERY

Rhinoplasty surgery of the nose is an individualized procedure because “one nose does not fit every face.”  Rhinoplasty surgery is complex especially for “revision” surgeries to repair and correct previous surgical problems. At the hands of a skilled surgeon, Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most requested today because of the dramatic results it offers – both cosmetic and functional. Revision Rhinoplasty can:

1)   Correct assymetries or depressions in the nose

2)   Correct displaced implants or cartilage grafts which make the nose look round and bulbous

3)   Correct nasal obstructions to restore normal breathing

4)   Make the nose smaller and or narrower

5)   Correct inadequate nose tip projection (e.g. droopy tips)

Remember, Rhinoplasty surgery is both complex and difficult and since the nose is the “centerpiece” of your face, it is critical that you choose a Board Certified plastic/reconstructive surgeon with extensive expertise in nose surgeries. I know, I perform them regularly.

BUTT UPLIFT…IMPLANTS…and curvy, sexy shape you’ve always wanted! and Manly Makeovers!


BUTT UPLIFT…with IMPLANTSCreate shapely, sexy curves you’ve always wanted….

shutterstock_76782826

Regardless of the amount of exercise or weight training, the buttocks are not easily enlarged, shaped or defined.  Butt Uplift with Implants or Fat Grafting changes that and gives men and women the butt they’ve lost or always wanted and never had.

Buttocks Implants is still at the top of the list of “most popular procedures” for the past several years.  Patterned after the outrageously beautiful Brazilian butt Lifts…American women and, yes, men, have and continue to line up for the safe, simple procedure.

Here’s what Butt Implants do:

       Implants enlarge, shape, lift and sculpt the buttocks

       Procedure varies by ethnicity…I tailor it to each individual

       Effects are safe, complementary and long lasting

       Implants are soft and easily shaped to achieve customized, natural looking results

During your personal consultation, I listen carefully and evaluate your desires, personal needs and anatomy to determine what is best suited to you.  Then your treatment is tailored to you personally.  We can also do Vectra 3D Computer Imaging which allows you to see your potential outcomes.  This process really helps patients make good choices.

Butt Implants Procedure is in!  You can read more about it here:  http://www.davinciplastic.com.

MANLY MAKEOVERS…because LIFE IS COMPETITIVE…and men want to look good!

More men work in office situations than ever before…and looking preppy, alert, handsome and energetic is part of the deal.  Older men are finder it harder to compete and are turning to Brotox to get their edge back. Many of the men who are getting Botox injections feel the need to “look friendlier again.”  Botox eases the forehead wrinkles that make you look angry.  They also get “spot treatments” on the face…whereas women prefer to get Botox in several locations for a more complete makeover.

EXPERT INJECTOR…be sure your Botox injections are given by an “expert injector.”  This requires specialized training along with a thorough understanding of the complex facial anatomy and an artistic eye.  I qualify as a Botox Expert.  I’ve given many hundreds of injection treatments… and I continue to do them on a regular basis.

Media, Peer Pressure and the need to look good!  There has never before been this much pressure on career men to look good and stay looking good.  It comes from every direction….news, special reports, magazines, male models, and especially career recruiters who just tell you like it is…look younger and look good or forget the job.  Older men are feeling really pressured since they are no longer “the young buck at the office.”

There are many, many options to overcome these challenges…no matter what age or stage of life you find yourself.  When treatments start early enough, visible aging is often delayed for several years without aggressive treatment.  We can handle it! 

Botox (Brotox), Liposculpting, Eyelid Surgery, Forehead Lift, Chin Implants and Neck Sculpting with Liposuction…are a few of the more common procedures men are choosing.  They are safer, with less downtime and long lasting results.

Women are giving their Men Manly Makeovers as…Birthday/ Christmas, New Years gifts….and for many others reasons and occasions. These procedures defy and reverse aging…and men are loving them along with several other options.

SPRING 2013 IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER… My blogs will continue to educate you about the many age reversing options such as face saving Power Lifters, super smoothers and other defensive options to help win the war on aging.

Recovering from 2012 holidays involves getting back on track with the right high anti oxidants for both your body and your face.

WHY ANTIOXIDANTS?  …antioxidants fight free radicals in the body….free radicals are to the body….what rust is to your prized antique car!

  • Increased intake of raw fruits and vegetables to 3-4 portions per day made a visible improvement in appearance, overall attractiveness and health (Univ. of St. Andrews School of Medicine, Scotland)
  • Food nutrients become building blocks of new skin cells and new collagen (both essential components of healthy skin)
  • Skin has the ability to heal (like every body organ does)…diet factors heavily into this ability  (Jeannette Graf M.D. Manhattan, New York)
  • Genetics and external/environmental factors influence the behavior of cells…but the ability to form properly and maintain a healthy moisture barrier depends upon internal factors
  • Lines, wrinkles and slack skin is part of the aging process…but proper nutrition is proven to stave off signs of aging longer
  • The key is a diet rich in alkalinity…all things green….while minimizing aciditiy …nothing cream or beige is bad!
  • Adequte hydration cannot be overemphasized…lemon/lime add flavor and alkalyze the water
  • Consume high quality protein such as wild caught salmon, spirulina etc….
  • Keep wrinkles at bay by eliminating/minimizing acidic foods, refined sugars, colas, alcohol and caffeine.  E.G….avoid coffee that is several hours old…it’s raging with “free radicals”
  • Refined sugar and processed foods both attach to protein (including collagen) in the body and break it down….causing wrinkles…..2011 Dutch study showed a correlation between higher glucose (sugar) levels in the body and higher perceived age!
  • Tufts University/U.S Dept of Agriculture study showed that a diet rich in plant nutrients like carotenoids, flavonoids and lycopene may provide the whole body with protection against aging UV damage.   Choose bright colored vegies….eat 60-80% raw every day for maximum nutrients…and don’t overcook the rest.
  • WATER… drink 1/2 of your body weight each day in that many ounces…to stay well hydrated.  (e.g….130 lbs requires 65 ounces of pure water every day….minimum!)  KNOW THIS:  there is no substitute for pure water….not iced tea, or coffee, or juice or any other beverage period!   The body is made up of over 90% water….it’s essential!

ANTIOXIDANTS   Good fruits and vegetables, and other high quality food sources (Organic is best) are loaded with antioxidants.  Antioxidants fight free radicals in the body and can prevent skin damage and fight the signs of aging. More on this later.

Holidays are over…time to get back on track and focus on Health, wellness and youthful beauty!  Stop procrastinating…and let’s talk about the age reversing options you’ve been thinking about.

Happy New Year!
