Breast Augmentation with Lift
Seeking bigger and perkier breasts, this woman chose to have a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation. She elected to have 550 cc saline implants placed at the time of her lift and these implants were filled to 580 cc of saline. She knew her scars would be somewhat heavy from other surgeries but at a year she was very happy with the results.
Not happy with the wrinkles or bar codes around her mouth or the laugh lines that had been getting deeper over the last few years, this woman decided to try a filler to see if that would help. She was teated with a hyaluronic acid injection of Restylane to both areas. 3 syringes in total were used with a lovely resolution of her problems that she was very happy with.
Frowning and squinting caused deep lines in this woman's forehead and number eleven or glabellar area. She chose to have it treated with BOTOX or botulinum toxin. The result is a pleasing softening of her lines yet she can still move her forehead. She reports that people do ask if she is angry any more and she feels that she looks more youthful.
After two prior rhinoplasties or nose jobs, this woman was very unhappy with the shape and look of the tip of her nose. She was wondering what could be done. A revision rhinoplasty was carried out using an open approach that included cartilage grafting and a fascial graft to get a much softer result. She was very happy with her improved look.
The bags under her eyes and the wrinkles on her forehead were bothering this woman and she wanted to see if there was a simple non-surgical solution that would help her. She chose to have the volume loss in her lower eyelid area filled with filler and decided that a long term filler would be the best for her.
She chose to have Artefill for her lower eyelids and says that is it is smooth and she does not even know it is there.
Her forehead was treated with Botox.
Breast Augmentation (Silicone Gel Implants)
This woman wanted to have bigger breasts. She is also a single, working mother and she wanter to have as fast and easy a recovery as possible. In addition, she is quite athletic and placing her implants below the muscle would mean cutting her pectoralis muscle and potentially decreasing her strength in her shoulders.
She chose to have the natural gummy bear shaped breast implants by Sientra and 24 hour rapid recovery.
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Not wanting to have surgery, this woman wanted to improve the shape of her nose. She wanted to soften the hump and to balance her nose which she felt was slightly crooked. She chose to have a liquid rhinoplasty and also chose to have it done with a long term filler so that it would be more or less permanent. We elected to use Artefill for her and she was thrilled with the results.
Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)
This gentleman wanted to adjust the look of his nose. He did not like the tip of his nose and wanted the hump reduced but not completely flat or feminized. He elected to undergo a complete reduction rhinoplasty or nose job. The procedure was carried out under twilight anesthesia. His splint was removed at post-operative day 3 and he was very pleased. He had almost no bruising.
Breast Implant Revision
Breast augmentation revision can be challenging. This woman had saline breast implants placed a number of years earlier. Although she liked her breast implant size and shape she wanted to be a little bigger and she did not like the severe rippling that she had with her saline filled breast implants.
She elected to have her implants replaced with the new natural feeling, gummy bear Sientra breast implants. She also used the 24 hour recovery protocol and was back to work in three days as a cocktail waitress.
Bellafill is an excellent filler for frown lines.
Reluctant to use Botox, this woman sought a solution to her glabellar frown lines or #11's. She has always had deep wrinkles but the last few years they have gotten deeper and stayed. She wanted a filler that would last a while and she elected to try Bellafill.
This is an off label use for any wrinkle filler but it is very safe when the right injection technique is used. Specifically, a micro-cannula was used to treat this area with Bellafill.
She was thrilled with the result especially because the result should last 24 months.
