3 Things To Tell Your Stylist (after having facial cosmetic surgery)

February 24th, 2015

Hair GraphicAt Nipntuck.com our goal is for you to look better naturally. We want you to feel more confident in your skin without looking like you’ve changed your identity! Because we want to give you the most natural results, other people in your life may not realize you’ve had cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons and salon professionals have one goal in common: we want you to look more beautiful. So if you are visiting your stylist (aesthetician, hair guru or makeup artist) for the first time after having facial cosmetic surgery, please consider sharing a little bit of information with them…            

  1. Tell them how you feel. Healing takes time and each person is different in the way they heal. Although you may feel well enough to go back to most activities of daily living just a few days after surgery, your body is still healing and there may be areas of your face and scalp that are still sensitive to the touch. Share this information with your stylist so that she/he may take necessary precautions to keep you safe and comfortable during your treatments.          
  2. Show them your scars. Scars are necessary for surgery but we aim to place scars in areas of your body where they will be hidden by natural skin creases, hair and/or light make-up. The average scar takes six weeks to reach 80% of its maximum strength, so if you have recent scars from facial surgery, please let your stylist know so that she/he may protect healing skin from further stress.
  3. Tell them about changes in sensation. Temporary changes in sensation are common after surgery. These changes may take up to six months to return to normal. During this time you may experience numbness and/or tingling in your face and scalp and you may not be able to carefully judge whether something is too hot or too cold. If you have residual numbness and/or tingling after facial surgery please share this information with your stylist and allow them to protect you from potentially damaging styling tools and products.

Natural Lip Wrinkle Fix: Fat Grafting

June 26th, 2013

Lip wrinkles or sometimes referred to as “smokers lines,” are the lines that radiate out from the lip margin.  They can be the result of aging, sun exposure, smoking, and /or genetics.  They usually make a person look older.  Women generally dislike them because their lipstick runs into the wrinkles, giving a pronounced pursed look. Interestingly, when lip lines become more apparent, it is often combined with a loss of lip volume or fullness at the same time.  These changes contribute to the appearance of facial aging.

Fortunately there are new choices to reduce lip lines, besides the injectable artificial fillers. Advances in regenerative medicine has ushered in revolutionary changes in many anti-aging procedures. Is regenerative fat transfer the Fountain of Youth? Perhaps, because regenerative medicine offers stunning new advances in natural procedures for facial rejuvenation, including restoration of youthful lips. Nipntuck Naturalâ„¢ features this new fat graft injection technique, which now allows us to replace facial fat loss.  Simply stated, starting with liposuction, we gently remove your own fat cells from selected areas and then they are carefully transferred to another location.  The regenerative properties of these fat cells are particularly effective, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues wherever it is placed. Not only can the lines be corrected, but the lips can be restored to more youthful size and shape, as well.

This revolutionary technique is not limited to facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting is an outpatient, clinic-based procedure and the quick recovery time is changing many aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery today. It is an ideal solution for patients preferring  more natural choices for the newest options in cosmetic surgery and represents an exciting time in the field of medicine.

It is important to seek qualified professional advice when considering these procedures. Most cosmetic surgeons do not charge for patient consultations. Here is a link to find a board certified plastic surgeon near you,  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
