Every Mom(my) Deserves a Makeover!

We're still a month away from Mother's Day, but today we'd like to talk about how Moms deserve a makeover. Nature is a beautiful thing. When a baby is born, it is so utterly helpless that it needs someone at its 24/7 disposal. Someone who will do an incredibly thorough job of feeding and cuddling it. Someone who will gladly get up five times a night to give it what it needs. Someone who will forget any kind of beauty standard they once had for their own [...]

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

In the age of the 24-hour news cycle, it can feel like we get bombarded with the latest studies and findings about literally anything. Is the Paleo Diet still the recommended way to lose weight or have we moved on to something new and better? Are red wine and dark chocolate still ok as guilt-free pleasure because someone once said they made you live longer? Is there anything Botox cannot cure? We can't answer any of this, but we do know a thing or two about [...]

Breast Implants: Why You Shouldn’t Pay More for a Bigger Cup Size

Before you go into a consultation for a breast augmentation with your plastic surgeon, you should prepare yourself with a number of questions about the procedure. You can’t know everything ahead of time, and the purpose of the consultation is to learn everything you need to know to make an informed decision. But here is a question we think you shouldn’t have to ask your plastic surgeon: Will you charge more for breast implants with a bigger cup size? Ask Your Plastic Surgeon Questions About Your [...]

4 Easy Add-Ons to Your Botox Appointment for the Perfect New You

Botox injections have grown immensely in popularity over the last two decades. In 2017, according to statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox made up about half of all non-invasive cosmetic procedures. It's no wonder. Botox is a super easy way to smooth out facial wrinkles. It takes less time to administer than a dental checkup, it's pain-free, and you get a visibly younger look for up to 5 months. It's also fairly inexpensive. In addition, it can help with other conditions such as migraines [...]

New Year, New Body!

Somehow, and without dissing men, it is always the women who bear the brunt of the holiday-induced stress. We run ourselves ragged to decorate the house, bake cookies, and procure a mountain of presents, and in the process we usually neglect our own bodies until we are absolutely spent. The NuBody Concepts team would like to remind you that it may be time to think of yourself for a change. What could be better than doing something nice for yourself after these holidays?

Patients sometimes ask us if there is a cut-off age for a tummy tuck. They are worried that they are perhaps too old for tummy tuck surgery.

Beyond the Waistline: How Liposuction Helps with Cholesterol Levels and Diabetes

When we think of wanting a slimmer figure – who doesn’t? – we think that we mainly need to lose weight. It often comes as a surprise to liposuction patients that it has nothing to do with weight loss. It’s simply about the removal of fat. But while liposuction is not a weight loss program per se, it often can be a kick start to positive lifestyle changes. Blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes – learn about the health benefits of liposuction! “I had liposuction performed on my chest, [...]

Plastic Surgery Trends: Chin Filler or Augmentation?

Yes, chin augmentation is a thing, even if it’s not as widely performed as, say, liposuction. At 16,136 procedures performed in 2017, according to the ASPS, chin augmentation is a respectable surgical procedure. A “weak chin,” according to recurring studies, is often seen as a hurdle, particularly for men. There seems to be a link between success in life and a strong jawline, which is why men intent on improving their image turn to chin augmentation. But what if there was an alternative that requires less [...]

Can Visceral Fat be Removed With Liposuction?

When patients come to see us for body contouring, their belly is often the main area of worry. Most of us would be happier with a flatter stomach, and fortunately there are several plastic surgery and non-surgical treatment options for belly fat removal. However, not all fat is created equal.

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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."

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 [...]

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 [...]

My Tummy Tuck Diaries: Excerpts From a Tummy Tuck Journey

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

But there is another area of a woman’s body that undergoes drastic change over time: the vagina.

What to Expect with Liposuction
