Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Implants

Posted on January 17, 2014

With more emphasis in pop culture on the shape of the derriere, more patients are coming to see us about the idea of buttock augmentation.  One of the most common questions I hear is:  Which is better – the brazilian butt lift or buttock implants? While both methods can work, for patients that have a […]

What does “no downtime” really mean?

Posted on October 29, 2013

How often do you hear about “no recovery” or “lunchtime” treatments when reading about lasers, peels and other treatments in the media?  Until recently, there was no accepted definition for these terms. What does “minimal recovery” really mean – minimal to whom, the doctor, or to you? The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has developed […]

Sientra’s new capsular contracture warranty program

Posted on October 21, 2013

On Friday, Sientra announced a new warranty program, which they are calling “C3”.  The program, which begins Novemeber 1, 2013, will apply to first-time breast augmentation patients who choose Sientra-brand textured implants. In addition to the current implant deflation warranty, the C3 program provides a free replacement implant if the patient requires revisional breast surgery […]

Advances in Breast Lifts

Posted on October 1, 2013

“Benelli lift” or “Circumareolar lift” Many patients who would like a more uplifted and perky breast shape tell me that they are very worried about a breast lift, due to the surgical scars.  Most women worry that they will need the traditional anchor lift – and that’s not always the case.  Today, I’d like to […]

Mentor gets approval of new breast implants

Posted on June 14, 2013

Today, the FDA announced the approval of the “MemoryShape” breast implant, made by Mentor.  This is the teardrop-shaped implant, filled with the latest generation of form-stable silicone gel.  It’s certainly a home-run for breast reconstruction patients, and may be useful for some breast augmentation patients as well.  Mentor now joins Allergan and Sientra with implants […]

Have you heard about Belotero, the new filler?

Posted on May 10, 2013

While most people are familiar with Restylane and Juvederm, you might want to get to know the new kid on the block, Belotero Balance. Just like Juvederm and Restylame, Belotero is an FDA-approved filler that is also made from hyaluronic acid gel.  But it’s manufactured a little differently, and has a smooth and soft consistency.  It’s quite […]

Allure Magazine’s 11 most overrated cosmetic procedures

Posted on April 1, 2013

Allure Magazine’s senior editor, Ms. Joan Kron, recently published an article called the “11 most overrated cosmetic surgery procedures”(link), and I thought this was well worth commenting on.  Ms. Kron has received several awards from our plastic surgery societies for journalistic excellence in covering our field – so her articles are always worth a read!

Plastic surgery trends for men

Posted on December 7, 2012

Here’s a cool “infographic” from ASAPS about cosmetic surgery trends for men. In our practice, the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures are liposuction for the “muffin top” and abdomen, and blepharoplasty, particularly for the upper eyelid.

Facial fat grafting: a new way to look better

Posted on October 30, 2012

If you study a youthful-looking face and compare it to its older counterpart, one of the things you’ll notice is that the younger face has fullness in the cheeks, and the older face doesn’t.  The older face often loses volume – in the temples, in the cheeks, in the lips.  And until recently, plastic surgeons have […]
