What to Know About Liposuction

August 31, 2021
Many people struggle with excess body fat. When a healthy diet and exercise fail to get rid of fat bulges, liposuction may be a good option to achieve your body contouring goals. It’s one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States and can target many areas such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, hips, upper arms, back, and more.   Liposuction is a fat reduction procedure, not a weight loss treatment. The best candidates are generally within 30% of a healthy weight range and have localized fat pockets they’re looking to reduce. Good candidates also are non-smokers (if you are a smoker, it’s best to stop smoking as soon as you schedule your procedure). Your… Read Full Post

Dos and Dont's of Plastic Surgery (tips for prepping and recovery)

Breast enhancement has long been the most popular plastic surgery procedure, but there are several surgical options available depending on what you would like to achieve.

Choosing a Surgeon

June 30, 2021
When considering cosmetic surgery, it’s important to do your homework on potential surgeons. Did you know that any licensed physician can legally call themselves a cosmetic surgeon and perform cosmetic procedures, regardless of their training? Or a physician may be board-certified, but not in the services they are offering. Surprisingly, there are no laws against this. Confirming that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery helps serve as a warranty for the type of training they have received. Board-certification in Plastic Surgery can only be awarded by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), only after the surgeon finishes a formal residency in Plastic… Read Full Post

Breast Augmentation – When To Have Your Procedure

April 30, 2021
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It can increase the size of your breasts, restore breast volume, achieve a more rounded breast shape and/or improve natural breast size asymmetry. If you have decided breast enhancement is something that will give you more confidence, planning ahead is essential so you can schedule your procedure to fit your life.   While you may be able to walk around and perform simple tasks just a few days after surgery, you should allow yourself several weeks to recover and work out the side effects (such as bruising and swelling). During the first 4-6 weeks, your new breasts may look like they are in a permanent push-up bra – they’ll… Read Full Post

We're Mad for Microneedling

March 03, 2021
If you are looking for a minimally invasive treatment that can help improve your skin’s appearance, microneedling might be the answer! It has been proven to help skin’s overall texture, help diminish the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production. Just what is microneedling? Microneedling is the insertion of very fine, short needles into the skin for rejuvenation. Do not let that description scare you - these punctures are more like pinpricks that enter only surface-level deep. The needles are small, ranging from 0.5 – 2.5mm, and rotate over the skin from a pen-type device. The tiny, controlled injuries help promote collagen formation, which helps improve the… Read Full Post

Here’s just a few reasons why this is the perfect time to get on the road to… Read Full Post
