Getting to Know Your Various Facial Rejuvenation Options

For patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance and fight off some of the more visible signs of aging, the face is a great place to start. After all, our faces are the most prominent and unique feature we have. This is why so many patients first think of facial procedures when considering their options for cosmetic improvement. Whether you are interested in more proportional facial features or treating visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, I am able to perform a wide variety of surgical and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures for patients of all ages.

Cosmetic facial surgery, such as facelifts, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty procedures, are intended for patients who are seeking more significant and longer-lasting results. For instance, rhinoplasty can fundamentally alter a person’s appearance by creating a more symmetrical, better-proportioned facial structure. Conversely, nonsurgical facial rejuvenation may make more sense for patients who prefer more subtle, natural-looking aesthetic tweaks instead of more dramatic alterations. Nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, like Botox® Cosmetic injections and facial fillers, may also appeal to those are too busy to take on the recovery time needed after certain cosmetic procedures, or those who may not be healthy enough for surgery. Nonsurgical rejuvenation procedures are also commonly used as maintenance for patients who have already undergone facial surgery.

I know all these options can be overwhelming for certain patients who are not sure which procedures or treatments make the most sense for them. That’s why I have taken some time in the video below to provide some more information on nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and how it can be of assistance:

Remember that when it comes to surgical vs. nonsurgical procedures, it does not have to be a one or the other choice. In fact it’s common for my patients to use nonsurgical treatments to complement and enhance the results of their cosmetic surgery. Regardless of which facial rejuvenation route you ultimately choose, the first step towards your desired change is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help guide you towards the cosmetic procedures that will most successfully help you reach your new aesthetic goals.

Debunking Common Myths about Liposuction

Liposuction is consistently the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the US among both men and women. Patients love having the ability to create a trimmer, healthier-looking body contour by removing excess fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, back, or elsewhere. Though despite its immense popularity, there are still a lot of patients that don’t know about liposuction and the benefits it is able to provide. That’s why I am writing to debunk a few of the more common misconceptions about liposuction.

Debunking Common Myths about LiposuctionMyth #1: Liposuction Can Help You Lose a Large Amount of Weight

Unfortunately this is not true. It’s important to remember that liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. While it’s true that excess fat is removed during liposuction, the number of pounds of fat that can be removed safely from the body is relatively small and fatty tissue does not weigh that much. I recommend that my patients reach their goal weight before undergoing liposuction.

Myth #2: Liposuction Will Keep Fat Away Forever

Liposuction results are meant to last for a considerable amount of time, but that doesn’t mean that treated areas will remain fat-free forever. Though lipo is able to reduce the number of fat cells in a specific area of the body, some cells will remain intact. Any remaining fat cells can expand and contract, leading to more body fat. Certain changes in the body from pregnancy, weight gain, or aging can alter a patient’s results.

Myth #3: Liposuction Will Help Get Rid of Cellulite

Despite what many people believe, liposuction is not intended to treat cellulite. Cellulite is caused by damaged fatty tissue that accumulates below the surface of the skin pushing through the connective tissue. Liposuction can sometimes reduce the appearance of cellulite by removing fat and slightly smoothing a specific area, but this is not always the case. I personally recommend Cellulaze™ Cellulite Treatment for patients who want to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Due to its effectiveness and versatility, it’s no surprise to me that liposuction becomes more and more in-demand every year. Hopefully by elaborating on what it can do (and what it cannot do) patients will have a better idea of whether or not liposuction is the right procedure to help achieve their unique aesthetic goals. Non-invasive treatments like SculpSure® Nonsurgical Fat Reduction may be preferable for certain patients.
