This month marks the start of summer and things have already started heating up around the city as a lot of you will be heading out of town, enjoying more friend and family gatherings and heading outdoors to soak up a good dose of Vitamin D. Not only is June 21st the summer solstice but it also happens to be Father’s Day. The Southern Plastic Surgery team certainly wants to extend a very happy Father’s Day wish to all the special men in each of your lives and I hope you make their day extra special this year!
We understand that schedules can be tight this time of year and finding the best time to fit a surgical or nonsurgical procedure in can be tricky. Surprisingly enough, downtime can be quite minimal for several procedures we perform so you don’t miss out on the important events coming up this season! To kick off this month’s specials, let’s start with FDA-approved Restylane® Silk. When we first introduced Restylane® Silk to patients earlier this year, our patients were pleased with its ability to provide subtle plumping of the lips. When I say subtle I mean that it’s a “lighter” version of the original Restylane® facial filler due to the smaller granular substance that is able to get deeper into the delicate lines around the mouth. Patients can get that pouty-lip look but still avoid the commonly overdone “duck lips.” If you haven’t tried Restylane® or Restylane® Silk yet, check out our flyer for details on our treatment packages that are good now until June 30th, 2015.
Some of you may remember a few weeks ago I shared that I had the honor of speaking at the 2015 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Meeting to a select group of doctors on the topic of tummy tucks (abdominoplasty). My scarpa fascia flap abdominoplasty technique has become a staple for helping patients achieve not only a flatter midsection, but one with curves and I’m hoping that I was able to encourage other doctors from all around the world to do their part in improving our tummy tuck patient’s results. By utilizing the scarpa fascia tummy tuck technique when performing tummy tucks, a more defined contour of the waistline (think along the lines of an hourglass shape).
