Injectables for Facial Balance and Your Ideal Profile


May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. The good news is that it can be prevented and if you get it, it can almost always be cured when found early and treated immediately upon detection. The goal in May is to raise awareness and encourage prevention. Visit: www.healthfinder.gov for complete info on skin cancer.

Well, this blog will continue telling you about facial balance and ways to achieve your “Ideal Facial Profile.   age defying at 50

Balance is the key to an attractive profile. Proportion is key; there should be balance between the forehead, the midface and the chin. When features are out of balance, and one overpowers the rest, the profile can look askew. A weak chin or backward sloped forehead makes the nose appear too dominant and creates a lack of balance and harmony.

INJECTABLE FILLERS and FACIAL BALANCE…surgery used to be the only way to achieve desirable facial balance or your “Ideal Profile.” Today, advanced, sophisticated injectable fillers make designing and achieving your desired outcomes absolutely possible without surgery. Injectables are today’s most popular cosmetic surgery alternative. For example, each year over 1 million people choose Injectables that restore youthfulness to their nose. Today’s Injectables can correct unsightly nasal bulges, humps, bumps, droopy nasal tips, nose bridge irregularities and more.

Since the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, the size and shape can either enhance or distort your appearance. Nose reshaping, that is well done, will not change the way you look, but it will restore youthfulness by enhancing your own facial features.

The past decade has produced advanced, highly sophisticated Injectables that we employ to achieve wonderful, longer lasting results.

RESTYLANE, RADIESSE and JUVEDERM are top hyaluronic acid fillers that we use to reshape noses and achieve other age reversing cosmetic procedures. NASOLABIAL FOLDS are also injected when doing the nose, to restore volume and eliminate those unsightly folds. Results from Injectables are seen instantly with today’s advanced formulas.

BOTOX® for BROWLIFTS without surgery. Botox has been in use for Brow and Forehead lifts for several years now. Botox is used to lift and shape the brow area by correcting mild ptosis (droopy eyelid) while reducing forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, sad lines etc. This offers a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance, again, without surgery.

SOMETIMES SURGERY IS THE RIGHT OPTION…As amazing as today’s injectables have proven to be, they are not always right for everyone. In order to avoid age reversing cosmetic surgery, you must start doing small anti aging procedures during the early years (20’s to 30’s) for many options. Then, maintaining them is critical to always look several years younger. For those who were not able to start treatments early, we offer wonderful age defying options for every concern. Check my website for more info on this: www.DAVinciplastic.com.

OK, we’re halfway through May already and graduations, career events, family reunions, vacations etc. are close. It’s time for Skin Peels, Injectable FaceLifts, and other “quick fixes” so you can look and feel your very best.

Balanced Face Profile…Small Changes that make a Dramatic Difference


My last blog overviewed the three views of the face: front, side/profile and the ¾’s. Each view dictates a different shape and different curvature of the facial features. This blog outlines how to get a perfectly balanced profile using small changes that make a dramatic difference. For those people who are unhappy with their profile, know that it changes as we age, but that it can be corrected and/or enhanced. For many patients, correction is of great value to them for various reasons.

Fat can be your "Friend"...

The eyes nose and chin are three distinct facial components, but they all work together to present a youthful and attractive appearance, whether one area is detracting from your overall appearance, or the aging process has begun to affect your face as a whole. There are a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options we offer to create or restore harmony and beauty.

Profile changes that occur:

EYES … Drooping upper lids, under eye bags, crow’s feet and a sunken hollow appearance are the first signs of aging and profile change.

NOSE…Gravity takes its toll to add years to your visage as a “subtle lengthening” can cause a profound aging effect. Rhinoplasty and Injectables can reverse this and take years off the nose.

CHIN…The chin begins to look different as skin sags, fat accumulates and bone is lost with age, as these changes cause significant lower face aging. Injectables can restore volume, contour and youthfulness to this area.

YOUTHFUL EYES ARE CREATED WITH: Injectables and Botox for people who do not need surgery and who are looking to refine or extend the results of a previous procedure. They are very effective for correcting wrinkles and depressions around the eyes. Ideal patients:

–     Are in their 20s or 30s and have good skin elasticity Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane are good choices since they are hyaluronic acid that attract water to plump up the area.

–     Crow’s Feet and BrowLifts candidates benefit greatly from these fillers. Botox is also great for eliminating Crow’s Feet and achieving an injectable BrowLift. Botox cannot replace surgery, if needed, but the benefits of Botox cannot be minimized.

–     BROW SHAPING the eyebrows themselves can have an impact on the appearance of the eyes an adjacent facial areas. Eyebrows are essential to being youthful looking, rested and bringing balance to facial contours.

BLEPHAROPLASTY SURGERY for YOUTHFUL EYES when cosmetic options aren’t enough. The brow, upper eyelid and lower eyelid all age in unison. The outer corners of the eyes drop down, the upper lids become deflated and droop, and bags form under the lower lids. Eyelid surgery can correct these fat, excess skin and muscle changes. Youthful eyes can be yours again either with injectables of Blepharoplasty.

VOLUMA is the treatment of choice to restore hollow cheeks without surgery.  See my website for complete info on Juvederm Voluma: www.DAVinciplastic.com.

Thanksgiving, Benefits of Gratitude,Turkey Neck…not on your neck and Males who get Fat Grafting


THANKSGIVING is a wonderful time for us to give thanks…and I want to thank each of you, our patients, for all you’ve done to help us make DAVinci such a special place. We appreciate each of you a Happy Thanksgiving and all the best in life.

So enjoy the time with family and friends, and count your blessings because…

An ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE…has been scientifically proven to produce many incredible benefits!  Gratitude actually improves blood pressure, stress, depression and reduces risk of developing eating disorders.  Gratitude is associated with improved mood, sense of well being, interpersonal relationships, physical health, weight loss, cardio health, improved immune health and longevity.  So, be thankful for what you have, don’t worry about what you don’t have…and please share the good news with your loved ones and friends.

Ageing and Turkey Neck…As we age we develop a “turkey neck,”
That’s the loose sagging skin under your chin that looks just like turkey waddle.  I do Necklift and Neck contouring with Liposuction to get rid of this unsightly, unwelcome problem.  There’s still time to get your neck contoured before Christmas.

FAT GRAFTING…is fabulous for restoring lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, hands, nasolabial folds and other sagging places.  It’s safe and long lasting.  Many people today prefer it over fillers because we use your own body fat and transfer it to needy areas.  There is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction…because it’s your own natural product.

FAT TRANSFER and the MALE MODEL LOOK…YES more men are doing youth rejuvenating procedures for career benefits and just because the Baby Boomers want to look their best always.

More of today’s men are seeking ways to look healthy, fit, trim and sculpted. They call it “The Male Model Look.” Concerning the face, It involves accentuating some or all of the skeletal highlights of the face.  Areas such as the brow bones, cheeks, chin and jaw angles/jawline.  Fat Grafting/Fat Transfer/Fat Injections (all the same) are fabulous for restoring these deficient areas. Many guys also have a “Nose Job” for ultimate results.

MEN and BROTOX (Botox)   Over 25% of my Botox patients are men.  West Coast doctors report that 50% of their Botox patients are men. In addition to Fat Grafting, Botox is the leading injectable today…and when done by an “Expert Injector” the results are wonderful.  Men like it because they want fast, no downtime results, without everybody knowing.  They don’t mind aging…but they hate the droopiness, jowls, the fat neck etc. Fat Grafting and Botox are two proven ways to deal with these issues.

EXPERT INJECTORS  are Board Certified Surgeons, Facial Plastic surgeons, Dermatologists and Oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated due diligence for patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.  Expert Injectors have specialized training in the procedure and products and are specifically qualified to perform the injections.  I am a qualified Expert Injector….please don’t entrust your face to a non expert.

OK…this blog has been bits n pieces of information I’ve wanted to get to you before the year ends…and ideas for helping you keep your best face forward.

AGE DEFYING OPTIONS FOR YOU!  Go to: http://www.davinciplastic.com, to see the many anti ageing options my patients choose.   We can’t stop ageing…but we can slow it down and keep you looking years younger…always!

Best to you all.
