Using Botox Preventively – Does it Work?

Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around the world. And for good reason: Botox injections are relatively affordable – compared to a facelift or many other forms of facial rejuvenation. They are extremely easy to administer; you’re typically in and out of your doctor’s office in 20 minutes. And they are also entirely pain-free. What’s more, Botox is FDA-approved and has an impeccable safety record. (Dysport or Xeomin are also safe alternatives, but unlike Botox they are not FDA-approved.) But lately a new [...]

Fat Removal: Why We Don’t Offer CoolSculpting

When our patients come to us for a consultation about fat removal, they often ask us about CoolSculpting. Our answer has always been that we don’t offer CoolSculpting (also known by its scientific term, Cryolipolysis), because in our experience it is much less effective than liposuction. It doesn’t remove the unwanted fat in one go but rather requires repeat treatments, it can be rather uncomfortable if not painful, and it simply doesn’t yield great results like liposuction. (Read more about liposuction vs CoolSculpting here.) In addition, we [...]

What Michelangelo’s David Can Teach Us About Liposuction

Liposuction has been around for a long time. And as old things go, it may not be the most exciting offering on the block.

Let's take a look at some of these newer options, as well as the history of liposuction, to answer this question.

Top 5 Reasons to Get Liposuction

So you want to lose weight. Who doesn't? A common misconception about liposuction is that it helps you to lose weight. In fact, liposuction is not a weight loss program. Studies have shown that liposuction has no discernible long-term or even medium-term impact on a patient's weight. If it isn't to lose weight, are there any reasons to get liposuction? Over years of listening closely to our patients' stories when they first come to see us, we have learned a lot about their goals and hopes for [...]

Can I Have Children After a Tummy Tuck?

Typically, the question most women ask us is this: When is the best time for a tummy tuck? And to this, we typically answer with "After you're done having children." However, this doesn't mean that you cannot become pregnant and have children after a tummy tuck. It just means that it isn't the ideal sequence of things. To better understand this, let us look at what a tummy tuck does to your body. What Does a Tummy Tuck Do? A tummy tuck - the medical term is abdominoplasty [...]

Surgical versus Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Treatments: What Works Best?

In this day and age, plastic surgery has become much more commonplace than it used to be. More and more women, and increasingly also men, are eager to give themselves a younger and more vital appearance by getting a little help from a plastic surgeon’s bag of tricks. However, the word “surgery” still has a negative ring for many would-be patients. There are several reasons for this. For one, there is the fear of pain. Secondly, there is the fear of possible stitches or other visible marks [...]

Listen Up, Men: The New Brotox Craze

In the past, there seemed to be an unwritten rule that plastic surgery and facial aesthetics was a domain exclusively reserved for women. As a guy, you went and got your haircut every 4-6 weeks, but that was pretty much it. Anything else to “beautify” your appearance, even just a manicure, wasn’t quite manly enough. You were supposed to look rugged, your hair was supposed to go gray or thin out, and if you had wrinkles, so be it. If you did have anything done to look [...]

Getting Rid of Flab: The Secret to Toned Arms

It’s yet another rite of passage, along with getting your AARP letter in the mail and scheduling your first colonoscopy. You stand in front of the mirror with your arms raised to do up your hair, and you realize with horror that you have the arms of your mother: Loose, flabby skin hanging from your upper arms and sagging so much that everything jiggles when you move.

My Tummy Tuck Diaries: Excerpts From a Tummy Tuck Journey

When you are thinking about having plastic surgery, you’ll want to gather as much information as you can.

My Breasts Are Different Sizes – What Should I do? 

Having different sized breasts is completely normal. In fact, most women experience slight differences in breast shape and size. The difference can be especially noticeable during puberty while the breasts are still growing. Women who are dissatisfied with two different looking breasts have the option of surgery once their breasts are finished growing. While it’s not really possible to attain two identical breasts, breast surgery can do a great job of evening out their size and shape to be aesthetically pleasing. It offers a variety of options, [...]

Six Tips to Get the Best Results from Your Tummy Tuck

Besides breast augmentations, tummy tucks are among the leading plastic surgery procedures sought out by American women. And in recent years, they have also seen a surge of popularity among men. This is for good reason: tummy tuck results tend to be immediate and striking. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty will provide you with a flatter, firmer belly and a slimmer waistline. There are different types of tummy tucks, including the full tummy tuck, the mini tummy tuck and the extended tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck, [...]

When is it Time for a Facelift?

Many women (and men) discover the allure of Botox in their 30s and 40s. Some even start in their 20s to stave off even the earliest frown and worry lines. And with good reason. Botox is great to erase fine lines and wrinkles from your face, and can even “train” your muscles to frown less. You can also replace lost volume with fillers such as Juvederm, or improve your skin tone and texture with laser treatments. But none of these non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments can combat gravity, [...]

How Long Will My Breast Implants Last?

One of the most commonly-asked questions by plastic surgery patients is this one: How long will my results last? This is a very reasonable question. Most things in life don’t last forever, but the more we pay for something, whether it’s breast implants or a new car, the longer we expect it to last. In the case of breast implants, there isn’t a straightforward answer. Some women may keep their original breast implants to something approaching “forever,” and some may need breast implant revision surgery just a [...]

Where Does the Fat Go After Liposuction? This May Surprise You.

Liposuction Removes Fat Permanently. Why You May Want it Back. Liposuction is one of the oldest and most popular aesthetic procedures in the history of plastic surgery.

What to Expect with Liposuction

Why Liposuction? Liposuction is a type of plastic surgery that was developed in the 60s and 70s to address a population that was steadily gaining an unhealthy amount of fat. Most everyone, then and now, was prescribed healthier foods and more exercise by doctors to achieve the bodies they wanted, but that simply isn’t enough for everyone. Every body is different, and because of that, one body may have different needs than another body, and may respond differently to diet and exercise. Making it even more difficult, not being [...]
