Want a Rested Vacation Look?

April 12th, 2017

freshened without vacation

Has someone ever commented on how great you look after a vacation? Want the Spring Break rested look without the plane ticket? Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures can offer a younger and freshened appearance, much like returning rested from a relaxing vacation!

As we age, the fat layer beneath our skin diminishes, which causes the appearance of aging and facial wrinkles. Natural liposuctioned fat grafting is a great new way to restore that fat layer, and restore a more youthful look. Lipo fat grafting transfer is an effective choice to consider, since it offers a relatively quick recovery. Fat Grafting has been called a dream come true. Who hasn’t heard someone say they wish that they could suck fat from one area and reposition it someplace else? Many elective cosmetic surgeries routinely include liposuction of excess fat. This innovative technique allows plastic surgeons to gently remove fat and prepare it to be injected into other areas. As we recently talked live on the air for the KQRS Morning Show, during Tom Barnard’s facial rejuvenation procedure, Lipo Fat Grafting is an effective technique used to improve facial appearance (more on Tom’s fat grating here). The procedure replaces the use of artificial dermal fillers in the hollow areas around the eyes needing to be plumped and can be used to smooth out lip wrinkles or improve cheekbone structure.

Breast Enlargements Not Created Equal

October 31st, 2016

KQRS Real or Not Real

Are all breast enlargement surgery results the same? I frequently get this question in my office. The short answer is no, all results are not created equal. Each plastic surgeon has a particular  aesthetic  or individual style for how they do surgery, resulting in a specific “look” after surgery. My practice has been built on the natural appearance that I strive to give to my patients. Hundreds of people took the KQRS Breast Real or Not Real Challenge and found it difficult to pick out my surgical breast enlargements using saline implants from the photos where autologous (your own) lipo-fat transfer to achieve natural enlargement without the use of any type of implant. While not all patients have the goal of achieving a natural appearance after breast enlargement surgery, an effective way to evaluate how well a surgeon’s results match your own expectations is to look at Before/After photos. We have been updating our patient photos on our site and appreciate having their permission to use them. You can see photos for breast enlargement using saline implants here and breast enlargement using fat transfer here.

According to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, more than 279,143 women have chosen to have breast augmentation (enlargement) last year. It is important to understand all your options in choosing to consider this surgery.
