FACELIFT SURGERY for SAVING FACE


Often patients ask me: “Do I need a facelift?”  Couples are having surgery together...

Besides not liking the visible age related changes when looking into the mirror, some valuable guidelines can help determine when it’s time for a surgical facelift. Unwelcome Visible signs of facial aging include: lines, wrinkles, deep etched grooves, hollow cheeks and sunken eyes, thin sagging skin, a poorly defined neck/jawline often with “Turkey Wobble”, sagging eyelids and undereye bags and more.  These are the conditions that send men and women to plastic/cosmetic surgeons for a facelift, if injectables and other mini treatments are not appropriate.

AGING and YOUR FACIAL SHAPE:  Each shape affects how a face will age.

  • OVAL FACE … will experience hollowing at the temples and in the cheeks due to fat loss.  Fillers can correct this if started early enough and if needed a Mid-Facelift corrects sagging.
  • ROUND FACE…Cheeks and lower face tend to sag.  A lower Facelift addresses this while fat or fillers resculpt the hollow cheeks.
  • RECTANGULAR OR SQUARE FACE…usually loose skin and sagging jowls are the most prominent issues.  A Traditional Facelift is usually the best option to effectively correct this extensive aging.
  • HEART SHAPED FACE…aging appears first in the forehead and upper eyes. The high cheek bones of heart shaped faces tend to age slower than in square faces  with flat cheekbones.

WHAT ABOUT SURGERY AT AN EARLY AGE?  The trend for the past decade has shifted;  people are getting cosmetic procedures sooner, some at the first signs of aging, rather than later when more extensive work is needed to restore youthfulness.  Celebrities have been teaching us for decades that starting with small procedures early can slow down the appearance of aging and…keep you younger looking always!  Seniors, Boomers and Generation Xer’s are starting mini procedures in their 30’s, with periodic maintenance, and more as needed in their 40’s and no later than 50’s.  Visit my website to peruse the many anti aging options available: HTTP//:www.davinciplastic.com.

STARTING EARLY LEADS TO BETTER, LONGER LASTING RESULTS.  It allows patients to look fresher and younger from the improvement made now rather than dealing with greater aging challenges later in life.  They are getting facelifts along with fillers and Botox and are “looking great!”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW…BEFORE YOUR SURGERY  –  1) Realistic expectations are essential!  Don’t expect to look 20 if you are 50.  The goal of surgery, in particular, is to  make you look refreshed, more youthful and to fix laxity, hollows etc. Know that a facelift does not always eliminate every single line and wrinkle.   2) Scars are inevitable in spite of our refined techniques and precision instruments.  But, I hide them so often they are not visible while they fade away or blend in.   3)  There is some “downtime.”  For traditional facelift surgery plan on 2-3 weeks before resuming normal activities.  Each case is different, but that’s a reasonable norm. It can take a few months for all swelling to resolve and for your facelift to really settle in.   4)  Learn what can and cannot be fixed/corrected.  The consultation is critical for arriving at an honest understanding of my patient’s concerns, goals and expectations. I believe in educating them as to their options and outcomes.

So if when you look into the mirror you see lines, wrinkles and deeply etched grooves, sagging skin, sunken eyes, loss of facial volume, changing jawline, disappearing neckline and chin…let’s talk about your options sooner rather than later!

Best to You and Yours,

PRIMER ON INJECTABLES


shutterstock_91754579A SERIOUS LEVEL OF SKILL IS REQUIRED TO PERFORM INJECTABLE TREATMENTS and to GET BEAUTIFUL, DESIRABLE RESULTS. These are experts and are qualified to give injectable treatments:  Board Certified Plastic Surgeons; Facial Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists or Oculoplastic Surgeons, specially trained RN’s, CRN’s or PA’s who work directly under a surgeons supervision.  The KEY WORDs to look for in their advertising is:  Specially Trained Expert Injector.   These people have specialized training, are certified in injectables of every kind and have a vast knowledge base of their best uses, the risks involved, their history and much more.

PEOPLE NOT QUALIFIED TO PERFORM INJECTABLE TREATMENTS: include aestheticians, hair stylists, cosmetologists, dentists or medical professionals who have not been specifically trained to use today’s injectables. They are not Expert Injectors.

TRUST YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE:  The only place you should get injectable treatments performed is in your doctor’s/surgeon’s office or Medi-Spa within that office under the physician’s direct supervision.  DO NOT GET INJECTABLES AT YOUR LOCAL SPA or SALON!  They are not qualified nor medically equipped for routine injections or for emergencies in cases of injury or health complications.  They are not required to follow medically defined sterility and health standards and they are not supervised by an on site doctor who is responsible, trained and experienced.  HTTP://www.davinciplastic.com.

INJECTABLES DO PREVENT LINES and WRINKLES and LIFT SAGGING SKIN…Today’s injectables are truly amazing and they do achieve results either instantly or gradually and subtly.

BOTOX®  is the well known “denerving agent” used to smooth out existing lines and to prevent future ones.  FDA approved in 2002, Botox works by relaxing/paralyzing the muscles in motion that create smile lines, forehead lines, parentheses between the eyes and Botox, (Botulinum Toxin Type A) has been used therapeutically since the early 1950’s for treating spasms, uncontrollable blinking and  much more and today successfully treats chronic Migraine Headaches, excessive sweating etc. and is a leader in cosmetic anti aging treatments.

HYALURONIC ACIDS:  HA is a naturally occurring body substance that declines with aging.  Similar to a sponge, HA attracts and binds to water to keep the skin hydrated and well contoured.  Hyaluronic acid fills in the spaces between collagen and elastin fibers.  Replacing it with injectable treatments means putting back into your body a substance natural to and recognized by the body…it’s accepted, works well and restores youthfulness!  Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane are top choices to replace depleted Hyaluronic Acid.

COLLAGEN BOOSTERS:  These provide long lasting results while stimulating your own collagen production.  Sculptra offers results often lasting up to 24 months and is excellent for filling in hollow cheeks, under eye hollows, nasolabial folds, thin lips and is used in combination with Restylane e.g. to create smoothness around the eye and tear troughs. RADIESSE also is very popular as a collagen booster and provides long lasting results while your own collagen is renewed.

FAT GRAFTING/FAT INJECTIONS using your own body…when injected into targeted areas, plumps up, restores contour, fills in hollows and rejuvenates an aging face, hollow hands and more.  It’s natural, with no risk of rejection or reaction.  Results are subtle and continue over time.

BOTTOM LINE ON INJECTABLES:  We help you decide your best choices to achieve more volume, lifting, to banish lines and wrinkles and to restore a more youthful look!

READY TO GET STARTED…WE CAN HELP YOU PUT YOUR BEST SELF FORWARD!

BEST TO YOU AND YOURS,

MINI NECKLIFT…REFINES THE NECK


jan2012MINI FACELIFT was the topic of my last blog and the NECKLIFT is commonly married to it. As I said in the last blog, the “Mini procedures” are here to stay, they are refined, perfected and chosen by hosts of people every year in their war against aging.

NECKLIFT REFINEs THE NECK by removing years of visible aging to restore a more refreshed, balanced, younger appearance.  By removing excess, loose and sagging skin and fat, we can lift the skin, tighten muscles if needed and “recontour” the neck less invasively than with a full blown Necklift.  The Benefits:  Mini Necklift eliminates small amounts of saggy skin/fat and redefines angles from the chin to the neck. Refining the neck freshens the face also.  The Limitations:  Neckbands may still be present and Jowls may not be addressed adequately with a Mini Necklift.  It is important that your surgeon educate you well so you can make the right choice.  Mini Necklifts are the perfect solution for many people.  Remember they are “mini.”

ABOUT THE AGING NECK   The neck is frequently the area of facial aging that is a dead give away as to your true age!  When loose skin, sagging neckbands (Turkey Waddle) and a poorly defined neckline become visibly obvious, we may be perceived as older than we are.

MINI NECKLIFT:  1) WHO IT’S FOR:  younger people with small amounts of fat under the chin and whose skin is fairly elastic, not too saggy and not overly laden with thick neckbands.  (your surgeon will know)  2) ANESTHESIA:  usually local or IV Sedation,  3) LENGTH OF SURGERY:  about 3 hours,  4)  RECOVERY:  7 to 10 days required to rest, begin healing and allow for swelling and bruising to begin resolving.  You may need to wear a neck or chin “bra” to support the surgery and apply mild compression to the operated area.  5)  RESULTS …your results generally last 5 to 10 years.  Each individual is different but this is a good norm.  A full blown necklift is usually done with a Facelift and uses incisions behind the ears and sometimes under the chin. With a Mini Necklift, a Fecelift is not always done and sometimes just contouring the fat using liposuction along with some skin removal is enough to achieve the results the patient desires.

See my Website for complete information on all the procedures I offer.  HTTP://www.davinciplastic.com.

FIVE SIGNS of an AGING FACE – These are the issues that you can see when looking into the mirror.  They are the top signs of facial aging:  1)  DEEP WRINKLES of the face and neck,  2) A TIRED APPEARANCE,  3) POOR DEFINITION of the chin and sagging in the neck,  4)  JOWLS and DEEP CREASES found around the nose and mouth,  5)  LOSS of MUSCLE TONE and REDUCED SKIN ELASTICITY.  The best time to start anti aging treatments is before they are needed or at least as the first signs of aging appear.  We’ve learned from Hollywood celebrities how to keep looking younger always.  The Key:  start age defying treatments early and continue them on a regular basis to eliminate problems, restore health and youthfulness and to keep looking several years younger….always.

SURGERY IS OFTEN COMBINED WITH NON INVASIVE OPTIONS.  More often than not, people choose to have  2 or more treatments in tandem such as Mini Facelift with restorative Injectables or Fat Grafting for volume replacement and recontouring. We have many amazing options for you.  All safe.  All effective.

Next time I’ll blog about Mini Eye Procedures.  Check back often.

Best to you and yours,

Anti Aging Mini Treatments Are Here To Stay!


Gen X opting for more treatmentsThe Mini treatments idea was born about 20 years ago based upon the needs of younger patients (40ish) who wanted the benefits of cosmetic procedures, who didn’t need full blown treatments such as facelifts, and whose schedule demanded less downtime etc. These are younger Boomers, Generation X and now also includes the Millennials. What we learned back then was:  1) that aging occurs in stages,   2) that younger people usually need less invasive treatments, and that  3) “mini” options could work very well as long as they started early enough (at the first signs of aging) and maintained the results.  Http://www.davinciplastic.com.

Modified versions of traditional procedures being done today are much more refined, than those offered 20 years ago, by virtue of more advanced precision instruments that enable us in achieving totally natural looking results with increased longevitiy.  Yes, smaller surgeries are right for many people, usually those in their 40’s and early 50’s who are seeing visible age related changes.

Here’s the Bottom Line for today’s Mini Treatments chosen by our patients: 1)  look younger faster,  2) less downtime/ shorter recovery,  3) quicker results, 4) smaller incisions, 5) permanent results when possible.

There are many, many people who qualify for and benefit from these  mini procedures.  What surgeons expect from their patients is this:  realistic expectations.

For the next few blogs I want to cover “mini” procedures:  who they’re for and the many benefits.  This will include the Face, nose, eyes, and neck procedures.  So, look for these blogs.  I also want to do a “primer” on injectables to get you up to speed on what’s really involved there today.

MINI PROCEDURES ARE MAINSTREAM TODAY and are as much in demand as Botox, Dysport, Juvederm and our other great fillers.  Let’s start with the face:

Mini Facelifts “refresh” the face by addressing the most common signs of aging like sagging skin in the lower 1/3rd of the face and possibly the upper neck during one procedure. The Benefits include shorter recovery time, shorter incisions/nearly invisible scars and permanent yet subtle improvement.  Limitations include:  inability to effectively correct excessively slack skin and large areas of wrinkles. Longer incisions are required to deal with excessive skin laxity.  True Mini Facelifts correct the underlying structure and loose skin.  Beware of “fake” mini lifts that are superficial only; that claim to be done in under an hour and without anesthesia.  This is not a true facelift and will not achieve desirable results especially in older patients who may need more work than the mini can offer.

BOTTOM LINE:  the Mini Facelift is terrific for many people who opt for it soon enough and who choose a board certified plastic surgeon who is fully trained and experienced in performing facial surgeries.

MINI FACELIFT OVERVIEW:   1) WHO IT’S FOR…those in late 30’s, 40’s or early 50’s with fairly good skin laxity and the first signs of aging in the mid and lower face.  Younger patients have fewer signs.    2) ANESTHESIA:  Local or sedation   3)  LENGTH OF SURGERY:  2-4 hours,   4)  RECOVERY:  some swelling, bruising and general discomfort for a few days.  Resolves on it’s own with rest and oral pain medication.  5) RESULTS: usually last for 5 to 10 years with maintenance.

Hope your summer is going well.  Let’s talk about your concerns and help you get your best face forward!

Best to you and yours,

QUICK FIXES to MAKE YOU LOOK and FEEL YOUR VERY BEST for Weddings, Graduations, Reunions, Travel, Beach Days and EVERYDAY!


May is nearly gone but many people are still looking forward to end of year school programs, Jr. High, High School and College graduations, Proms, June weddings, Family Reunions, family travel, beach days and just everyday.    shutterstock_65938825

This time of year people look into the mirror and decide they don’t like what they see.  A fast paced career, Mommy responsibilities, corporate pressures, too little sleep, poor diet and more all create stress and stress shows up in the face without fail!

If you are tired of looking tired and older than you feel or really are, there are many facial quick fixes available to give you a more youthful, refreshed look, without surgery and little to no downtime. You can be ready for that big event and you can look your best!

CONSIDER: Instant Filler Facelifts. 

  • An Injectable Liquid Filler Facelift instantly erases lines & wrinkles, while lifting & contouring the face to resotre youthfulness without surgery.
  • The forehead and eyes can be refreshed by using the right products around, between and under the eyes.  Really, “The Eyes Have It.”
  • MidFace filler injections restore cheek volume, which also has a “lifting” effect.  The right filler can eliminate those deep grooves in the Nasolabial folds
  • I erase lipstick lines, smoker’s lines, jowls and augment the chin . The right filler transforms this area and you look years younger.
  • Injectable Filler Lip Augmentation instantly creates beautiful, youthful lips with curves in the right places.

There was quite a stir after Angelina Jolie’s announcement about her double mastectomy.    This decision, after learning she was BRCA positive, reduced her risk factor by 89% for ever getting cancer. Being BRCA positive means that mutated genes put her at high risk for several female cancers, breast cancer being the primary concern.  I’m specialized in Breast Cancer and Breast Reconstruction surgery.  I never enjoy learning that a woman needs the benefits of my skills, but I’m so glad I have the knowledge and expertise to successfully rebuild beautiful, natural looking breasts that renew her self esteem and confidence.  Natrelle 410 Breast Implants are my first choice for women in this situation.  I also recommend them to every patient desiring Breast Implant Revision Surgery.  They simply are the most natural looking, safest, longest lasting available today.  I’ll blog on Breast Implant Revision Surgery soon.

Look for a new blog on “People Traveling to DAVinci for Premium Plastic Surgery Procedures.  We help people, from around the world, to realize their anti aging goals, or to overcome challenges after cancer or trauma and for Revision Facelifts, Revision Rhinoplasty (NoseJobs) and other procedures that need to be corrected by a qualified, experienced surgeon.

ARE YOU BEACH BODY READY?   There’s still time.  Let’s talk.

Remember “Sun” precautions…hats, sun glasses, sun screen, plenty of clear water, and don’t over do it.

Best to you and yours.

For Breast Reconstruction or Revision…Natrelle 410 Implants Will Keep Everyone Guessing!


Since Angelina Jolies public announcement, and Brad Pitt’s comments about her double breast mastectomy, removal of both breasts as a “preventive” measure against developing breast cancer…I’ve decided it’s a good time to discuss today’s most popular…most natural cohesive (gummy bear) breast implants.

Natrelle 410 Ultra Cohesive Breast Implants are the most popular in the world today…chosen 2:1 by women having breast reconstruction surgery (after cancer treatment and breast removal)…and by women having implant revision surgery.  The Natrelle 410 also has more “loyal” physician advocates than any other single breast implant in the world!

WITH NATRELLE’s 410 COHESIVE tear shaped BREAST IMPLANTS…YOU WILL ALWAYS KEEP THEM GUESSING!  shutterstock_45617737

The 410 Implant was the very first highly cohesive…anatomically shaped implants and they are now referred to as “gummy bears.”  They have been in use throughout Europe since 1993 with wonderful results.  Natrelle 410 offers 12 shapes for a given volume.  I love them…my patients love them… for many reasons!

  • Natrelle 410 Implants…mimic the natural breast the best
  • They are the implant of choice today for women having breast reconstruction surgery
  • For breast implant revision surgery…the Natrelle 410 is top choice over all implants
  • It’s “tear drop shape” contours resemble the curve of a woman’s breast
  • The highly cohesive gummy silicone filler “holds together” uniformly to prevent migration in the event of a rupture (rarely occurs according to years of studies)
  • 12 shapes for a given volume enables patient/surgeon to be very specific in shape selection…for every single patient
  • Natrelle 410’s are chosen 2:1 by patients because they feel the most natural….soft to the touch
  • It’s the #1 shaped gel implant chosen by surgeons in Europe and Canada…where it’s been available for years  (the FDA just approved it in the US in February, 2013)
  • The textured surface means it will stay where it is placed beneath the breast
  • The implant surgery requires specialized training and skill…I am one of a select group of surgeons currently allowed to offer the Natrelle 410 implants to patients.

Highly Developed Method…used for selecting the ideal implants for each individual patient….no cookie cutter methods here!  Also, incorporating my Vectra 3D Computer Imaging program empowers my patients to see actual potential results…before having surgery.

Hand in Glove Fit! Selecting the right implant is the first step to achieving your desired outcome…Second is “surgical technique and skill.”  Added years of specialized surgical training and years of great success and natural outcomes in reconstructive breast surgeries…have given my patients have the highest level of confidence in my abilities…strong enough to send their friends and loved ones to me also.

OK…been thinking about implant revision/replacement…or have you been through a mastectomy?  Let’s talk…

Spring Graduations, June Brides, New Mommies, Class Reunions, Career Changes, normal facial Aging is really showing…Beach Days are here…are you beach body ready? …and many more reasons to get that Breast Augmentation scheduled, to have a Mini Facelift, to keep them guessing with Botox treatments or have an “instant liquid facelift.”  Take 10 years off the face with an Eyebrow/Forehead Lift…removing years of aging with an Eye Job (Blepharoplasty) or a Nose Job…come on and let’s get to work.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY…Enjoy Gorgeous Lips Everyday!


shutterstock_36660592Happy Valentine’s or Sweetheart Day!  Hope you get wonderful treats and the things that make you happy!

Gorgeous Lips are not just for Valentine’s Day….they are for everyday!  With today’s advanced super fillers, Botox and wonderful skin/lip care cosmetics…women around the world are enjoying sexy, luscious lips with curves in all the right places.  And they enjoy them everyday!

How to replace aging lips with beautiful, youthful lips…and curves in the right places!  I use injectables to reverse aging lips.  Hyaluronic acid is nature’s answer to volume restoration, which is lost with aging, illness etc.  Injecting the right amount into pre targeted areas is safe and effective, without creating nodules that other fillers might, to restore fuller, sexier lips with curves in all the right places. Restylane is great for lip enhancements.  Read about it at: http:www.davinciplastic.com.

Hollywood, Dollywood and global celebs have been doing this for decades.  They start early (before wrinkles take over) and continue doing small, age reversing procedures to slow or reverse the visible effects of aging.

How Lips Should Look…Beautiful lips should have a natural fullness to them with a fairly well defined cupid’s bow.  Knowing the right filler(s) to use and how to inject them correctly is critical.  Expert Injectors have specialized training and knowledge base in Injectables.

The right way to enhance the lips with hyaluronic acid fillers  successfully adds volume to make the lips bigger, well proportioned and in balance with the other facial features.  The key is in not adding too much to avoid “duck lips.”

Kiss Your Lip Lines Good Bye…loss of colllagen and elastin, as we age, accounts for reduction in volume as the “scaffolding” breaks down forcing the formation of lines and wrinkles. The most noticeable, of course, are the Smoker’s Lines above the upper lip.  They form and appear even in non smokers!  So your once luscious, hot lips slowly disappear.  Other causes include years of “lip pursing,” smoking, excess sun exposure, poor nutrition, dehydration, illness etc.

Fillers Eliminate Lines…Create Plump Beautiful Lips Instantly!
Nothing compares with the instant transformation and long lasting results of today’s advanced, proven fillers.  They can get immediate, remarkable results that my patients absolutely love!

Expert Injector…as an expert injector, that coupled with my thorough understanding of the complex facial anatomy…my artistic skills and years of experience…afford my patients the results they want and deserve.

OK.  We are half way through February already.  If you are thinking about a Mommy Makeover, Daddy DoOver, Seniors Grow Younger Together Plan, … and many others…let’s get it done soon.  Time to start getting “BEACH READY.”   Or the glamorous, healthy body you’ve dreamed of for your “SPRING WEDDING.”  or many, many other Spring events.

Let’s Talk Now.

Best to you and your loved ones.

Unwrap New Beauty… Youthful Aging fixes for Christmas and other “healthy” tips!


shutterstock_65466172With Christmas just around the corner and all the parties, events and galas we attend…we are all faced with the same challenges as during Thanksgiving.  We tend to overeat, under exercise and often get into trouble. Here are a few tips (some repeats) to help keep you on track to avoid weight gain, skin outbreaks, sluggishness and regrets about not being stronger!  Start applying these now and you won’t skip a beat!  See:http://www.davinciplastic.com.

1.  Understand your metabolism.  Each person is different and will burn calories at a different rate.

2.  Avoid repeated high calorie meals…for example enjoy Christmas dinner and avoid ongoing eating of the heavy foods.

3.  Eat more living foods (raw fruits & vegetables) like salads.

4.  Eat a filling low calorie meal before heading into the kitchen to cook for the crowd.

5.  Diet before the big day and after it….never diet on party or family reunion days.

6.  Eat smaller portions and still satisfy hunger by chewing your food until it is “liquid.”

7. Immediately freeze leftovers so you’re not tempted to keep eating these rich, calorie dense goodies too handy.

8.  Get back on track with a lighter, healthy diet the next day.

9.  Exercise to suppress hunger pangs.  Often, we’re not really hungry but may be thirsty instead. Drink plenty of pure water and walk 45 minutes each day on a treadmill.  This is scientifically proven to suppress false hunger and rev up your metabolism.

The average American adult gains 2+ pounds per year.  This starts early in life. Healthy lifestyle, healthy, living foods and pure water help the body maintain strength, vitality and normal weight.

WHAT’S NEW WITH INJECTABLE FILLERS?  At a recent Ultimate Skin Health Symposium in Beverly Hills,  Dr. Zein Obagi and Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald enlightened in this area.  To keep it brief:  in the past 4 to 5 years as new products have been in use,  we’ve learned more about the specifics of their uses.  The face is 3 dimensional…but normal aging causes it to become 2 dimensional as volume is lost and sagging occurs. Women then typically use makeup to camouflage these aging changes….to hide hollows, lines, wrinkles and droopiness…as much as possible.  As surgeons, we’ve learned how makeup effectively works and began applying those same principles to the use of injectable fillers.  Simply put, inject the places on the face where you would normally use makeup to coverup. This way, the fillers take years off the face instantly while highlighting your own natural beauty.

Facial filler injections give long lasting, natural results.  It’s truly a quick fix you still have time to do… so you can put your best, most vibrant face forward and go into 2013 looking years younger…naturally.  Fat Grafting is very popular today…this two for one deal….removes body fat from an area of plenty (we can sculpt that area then) and grafts it into the facial areas you target.

Be Sure to choose an “expert injector.”  We have specialized training in the complex facial anatomy and use of today’s age defying products.

Liposculpting.…there’s still time to sculpt those areas that doggedly resist your every attempt to get rid of fat.  This can be combined with Fat Transfer.  You can look healthy, slim and trim...by liposculpting away those troublesome, resistant areas.

Implants can still be done….breast, cheeks, chin along with sculpting and lifting those areas.  And More.    If you want to treat yourself this year…let’s talk now and get to work!  December is the month for “gift giving” and it’s now that many men and women give themselves and others a gift of health and beauty.  We love to help you realize that dream!

Stay Safe and Healthy!

Ladies Get Gorgeous…Men Look Younger…Still time before Christmas and New Years!


November and December are very popular months for getting age defying procedures done.  People opt to do them so they can feel good about themselves during the many social events these two months provide.  They do them because they have been given “gift money” or a year end bonus to spend however they desire.  Often, they get extra time off work and so they choose little or no downtime non surgical options…and they do them simply because they want to!

YOUR BEST FACE/BODY FORWARD QUICK FIX OPTIONS …1) Liposuction/chin implant to remove unwanted aging fat and sculpt the chin for a fresher, more youthful look,  2) Facial Fat Grafting to replace lost volume and look years younger,  3) Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping),  4) Dermabrasion to instantly remove fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations…and look refreshed,  5) Liquid Facelift….not ready for a facelift…injectables give you one if your skin elasticity is strong enough…if not…Botox and Juvederm etc. rejuvenate instantly by replacing volume in hollow areas, lines, troughs etc.  6) Lip Augmentation using your own Body Fat or one of my fillers creates fabulous, beautiful lips….as a long lasting but quick fix.  7) Implants…breast, cheeks, chin are very popular for restoring youthfulness.  8) Liposuction for body sculpting.

2011 MOST POPULAR COSMETIC PROCEDURES…These are the ways men and women chose to get lifted, tightened, rejuvenated, take years off the face, fill in and plump and more:

  • Liposuction
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Breast Augmentation,  Breast Lifts with Implants and Breast Reduction (Men and women)
  • Abdominoplasty …Tummy Tucks
  • Facelift often in combo with Forehead Lift and Blepharoplasty (Eyelids)
  • Otoplasty…Ear Pinning/Reshaping…people aren’t just living with unwelcome problems anymore!
  • Hair Transplantation
  • Lip Augmentation…Fillers and Fat Transfer
  • Breast Implants…as Augmentation, for removal/replacement
  • Male Breast Reductions
  • Implants for Chin, Cheeks, Breast
  • Butt Lifts…very popular regardless of ethnicity
  • ThighLifts…Arm Lifts (Brachiaplasty)

Quick Fixes such as Liquid Facelifts, implants, Botox, Brotox and lesser invasive surgeries increased for men and women…including Seniors who are choosing to “grow younger together.”

Male Procedures increased overall by several percentage points the past 3-4 years.  Boomers are more competitive in their careers..and more health conscience.  They want to look as good as they feel and just plan rejuvenation/anti aging procedures into their annual budget.  Neck lifts with Liposculpting and Chin Implants offers them a strong, confident, leadership look.  Chin Augmentation/Lipo/Lift increased by 71% between 2010 and present day.  Men also get lots of “eyelid” jobs done…instantly erases years from the face by removing saggy, baggy upper and lower eyelids.

Seniors 50s and older chose Botox, chemical peels, dermal fillers, Facelifts…and other body lifting options, chin augmentation, liposuction and more….much more.  A healthier, more active senior population is demanding age defying procedures so they can look younger now and for many years to come.

LIFTING AND TIGHTENING…brings people of all ages through our doors.  Butt Lifts, Thighs Lifts, Arm LIfts, Breast Lifts and more…have incredible age defying power and results that last!

OK.  Enough info…what’s your desire.  What will it take to get you looking great before Christmas, New Years and all the events in between.  There’s still time to do many quick fixes and a few surgical options that are minimally invasive, with little or no downtime and quick healing.  You gals can look fabulous!  You guys can look really great!

Let’s Talk Right Away.

Best to you and Yours.
