Revision Facelift to Correct Problems from a previous FaceLift or to “Freshen” an older traditional FaceLift


shutterstock_92984722Because time and facial aging does not stop after you get a facelift procedure, I get many, many requests for facelift “do-overs” correctly called Revision FaceLifts. There are many reasons patients become dissatisfied with their previous facelift and these distortions often cause self consciousness.  Be it the poor technique chosen, the surgeon’s lack of experience and skills, trauma or illness experienced by the patients, age related changes, no matter the reason, a Revision FaceLift can correct the sagging, aging features and restore a refreshed youthful appearance once again.

Revision FaceLifts are more difficult than the primary surgery due to scar tissue, altered anatomical positions and other unknown factors from the previous surgery that we may have to deal with.  When patients come to me asking for correction of a past facelift, it’s always helpful if they bring the operative report from the primary surgery.  This can give a baseline of information about the exact procedures that were performed and techniques used to do so.

Trusting Your Face to to a Qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon is critical!  Revision FaceLifts are a very complex surgery requiring maximum training and the expertise and skills of someone who has performed many, many facelifts and who does them regularly.  Also, being able to match the right surgery to your specific needs is imperative!  I know.  I see the unhappy results from the hands of unqualified physicians and the despair it causes those wearing the face with less than desirable results.  So, don’t be fooled by the mass advertising today being used to brand certain kinds of facelifts as the latest and greatest…Please understand that “one surgery/procedure does not fit all faces.”

Revision FaceLift Overview:  After matching the right facelift and technique to your specific needs, I customize your facelift to match your desired outcomes, goals and dreams.  The surgery will be designed to tighten and lift muscles, remove excess skin, remove and/or distribute and sculpt fat to replace volume and restore curves for a truly natural looking outcome.  What to expect after your facelift surgery:  swelling, bruising, numbness and some discomfort is normal and to be expected for several days. Discomfort is easily managed with oral pain medication.  Every day, these issues resolve a little more until one day, you forget about them.   Surgery is performed in a state of the art out patient surgery center that is fully accredited and equipped with all the necessary technologies to perform all surgeries and to handle any situation.

America’s Top Doc’s and Today’s Designer Female Surgeries…Taboos are gone!


shutterstock_27425314I’ve written a few blogs about female genital (V Zone) surgeries and how they have been life changing for so many women today.  This blog covers “Monsplasty”…the benefits of it and what some Top Docs are saying and doing in this arena of female health and wellness.

MONSPLASTY…what it is and the benefits you enjoy. Also called a Pubic Lift, Monsplasty is a surgical procedure used to reduce the size of and tighten the Mons Pubis. It is often done in tandem with a Tummy Tuck and Body Lift surgery to achieve maximum satisfaction.  Or it can be combined with other V Zone procedures such as Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty.

Childbirth, weight gain or normal aging affect the Pubic Area.  Women with an overly large Mons Pubis complain that it interferes with getting clothes to fit right, it often hinders normal urination and can really hinder sexual intimacy.  I correct a sagging, enlarged Mons Pubis by reducing the sagging skin and tightening muscles and tissue to improve the appearance and restore normal function and enjoyment!

TABOO YESTERDAY…POPULAR TODAY!  MONSPLASTY SURGERY IS ONE OF TODAY’S MOST “IN DEMAND” SURGICAL PROCEDURES!

COMMENTS BY OTHER TOP DOCS:   DR. GARY ALTER …AMERICA’S POPULAR AND AGGRESSIVE SURGEON…dealing with sex changes, male/female genital corrective and designer procedures, and much more…is a West Coast surgeon and pioneer in his field of life saving/life changing procedures for both men and women.  He has invented a new labia surgery technique for reducing the labia majora…and is calling it the “Alter Labia Contouring Procedure.” Simply put, it reduces the size of the LM while preserving the contour, color and anatomy of the Labia’s edge. His new technique is loved by his patients who say…the surgery is virtually undetectable but the wonderful improvements….are clearly detectable and enjoyable!

Dr. Alter’s patients have removed the word “taboo” or embarrassment, or pain and suffering, ugly signs of aging and more from their vocabularies….because his Male and Female procedures are life changing….without embarrassment.  Dr. Alter along with many other notable “top Docs” widely promote their corrective and designer surgeries…around the world.  The younger generation in particular…is totally uninhibited, according to Dr. Alter and Dr. Christine Hamori...another front runner in the Vagina Designer arena. Dr. Hamori specializes in helping women of all ages and stages regain function, sexual satisfaction, youthful appearance, self confidence and more.  As a much sought after speaker/presenter….she is asked to explain her procedures and teach her techniques also.

IT’S ABOUT HEALTH AND HAPPINESS…and their patients all agree!  Aging, weight fluctuation, childbirth, illness, trauma, genetics etc. all factor into the changes our bodies endure across the lifespan.  Used to be…certain things absolutely were not talked about….women and men suffered in silence until they died.  The tide has changed!  An educated, enlightened population is choosing total health and the pleasures it offers.  Dr. Hamori works with women to correct female genital issues….to  restore health, function and a youthful appearance.  She is an educator and pioneer…highly respected among her peers and loved by her patients, their families and friends!

Dr. Alter has several other procedural techniques that he has not yet published…but his peers and patients are excited to learn about them. Both “Top Docs” are fulfilling a vital area of need in healthcare today.  I appreciate them and all they have brought to the table.

about sunbathing and sunburns! Vacations have already begun (Spring Break this past month) meant many bodies on the beach….or poolside.  After being in all winter…or enduring a gray winter as many parts of the country did…be smart when enjoying the sun.  Here are a few tips: 
1.  A stumpy shadow means the sun is directly overhead and UVB exposure is up to 50% greater during this time.  2. Wear hats that throw a shadow over your face and neck.   3. Be generous with sunscreen…a thin layer does nothing!    4.  Summer white/pastel gauze type fabrics absorb rays because they lack color pigments…when wearing them wear a layer of sunscreen also.  5. Apply sunscreens indoors….to allow them to “bind to” skin proteins….otherwise they don’t work!   Come back next blog for more tips!

Stay well….and let’s get you going on your “beach body” procedures!  Weddings, graduations and more are also around the corner.  Want to look your very best….let’s talk!

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.
