A brow lift is a surgical procedure that raises the eyebrows to a more alert and youthful position. The surgery repositions sagging eyebrows that are hooding the upper eyelids, and frequently decreases the visibility of frown lines and creases of the forehead, bridge of the nose and between the eyebrows.
All 3 products (known collectively as neurotoxins or neuromodulators) are FDA approved prescription medications that are injected into muscles responsible for wrinkling of the overlying skin to relax them and achieve temporary improvement in appearance of those lines. They are very similar in mechanism of action, longevity of results, safety profile and cost.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure performed for a variety of reasons. Upper and lower eyelid surgery may be performed purely to improve appearance. Lower blepharoplasty is performed to address baggy eyelids and loose lower eyelid skin.
Fillers can also be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (in patient over age 18). In most patients, it is expected to last up to 6 months.
Breast augmentation (breast enlargement, augmentation mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure that can add volume or restore fullness of the breast by placing breast implants. In the US, over 300.000 women undergo the procedure every year. It is the most common elective cosmetic surgery performed today in the US.
Breast lift is a procedure done to raise and firm saggy breasts. The sagginess may result from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, aging, and hereditary factors. During the procedure, excessive skin is removed and the breast is reshaped to create more youthful appearance. Enlarged areolae may be reduced.
Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure performed to treat symptoms related to excessively large breasts, i.e. back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, rashes in the folds under the breasts, and shoulder grooving (from bra straps). The procedure involves removing part of the breast to reduce volume, then repositioning the nipple/areola to a higher location (lift).
True gynecomastia (enlarged male breast) is a condition resulting from imbalance between testosterone and estrogen production. Although many people think that estrogen is a female hormone, men also produce it (although in much smaller quantities). Since estrogen is a hormone controlling the growth of breast (among other roles), its overproduction or imbalance with testosterone (male hormone) may result in enlarged breast gland in males.
Body contouring is a term that describes several procedures performed in one or several settings, as a single procedure or in combination, to improve the shape of the torso (breast, abdomen, back, buttocks), arms, and legs.
"Mommy makeover" is a combination of procedures to address undesired changes of female body that occurred following pregnancy and breastfeeding.
CoolSculpting® is a new revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment that removes unwanted fat by freezing it using an externally applied device. The procedure is non-invasive, virtually painless and requires minimal, if any, recovery time. There are no incision or needles involved.
Liposuction (lipoplasty or suction-assisted lipectomy) is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures. Liposuction is a surgical procedure during which excessive fat is removed from deposits beneath the skin using cannulas (hollowed tubes) connected to a suction device.
Laser skin resurfacing is the use of precision laser therapy to remove wrinkles, scars, and discolorations. Based upon the principles of selective photothermolysis, resurfacing lasers selectively target water-containing tissue resulting in controlled tissue vaproization. Thereby, associated residual thermal injury in the dermis results in collagen remodeling and renetworking.
Sclerotherapy is the method for eliminating broken leg veins by the injection of a sclerosing agent into the veins. The majority of patients will have significant clearing of the veins in about two to three treatments on average, spaced four to six weeks apart. It is very important to understand that this treatment along with laser leg vein treatment do not prevent the development of new spider veins.
Laser leg vein treatments work by selectively heating any particular vessel, coagulating the blood/heating vein wall until the vessel collapses and seals shut. The destroyed vessel is then absorbed by the body over a period of weeks/months.
Laser hair reduction is the use of precision laser therapy to permanently reduce unwanted hair for all skin types including African American, Asian, Latin and any other ethnic group with dark skin tones.
Chemical peel is an exfoliating technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by using a light to medium chemical solution that causes the dead skin cells to exfoliate and shed at a faster rate.
