FACE & NECK LIFT: A PATIENT GUIDE
As part of the aging process which happens to all of us sooner or later, our skin progressively loses its elasticity and our muscles tend to slacken. The stresses of daily life, effects of gravity and exposure to sun can be seen on our faces. The folds and smile lines deepen, the corners of the mouth droop, the jaw line sags and the skin of the neck becomes slack. Around the eyes, the eyebrows droop and the skin of the eyelids gathers in loose folds. In the skin the first sign is fine wrinkles developing around the lips, at the outer corners of the eye and lines of expression. The rate at which this happens varies from one person to another and is probably determined by our genes. Aging of the skin of the face does not necessarily reflect the rate that the rest of our body and mind is ageing and many people feel frustrated that the face they see in the mirror is not the one they feel should be there. Substantial weight loss can produce similar changes in facial appearance to those of the aging process.
BREAST ENLARGEMENT: A PATIENT GUIDE
Breast enlargement surgery, also known as breast augmentation or breast enhancement, is one of the most regularly performed procedures and involves the insertion of implants under the breast tissue to increase the size or change the shape of the breasts. Many women choose to have breast augmentation surgery to boost body confidence and to feel comfortable with the size and shape of their breasts. Breast enlargement surgery is an operation to enlarge the breasts, usually using an implant filled with silicone or with physiological saline (a solution containing salt at the same concentration as in the body).Sometimes, the breasts can be enlarged with fat from another part of the body. Patients are usually pleased with the results of breast augmentation, but first it is important to understand what is and isn’t possible, and what care might be needed in the future.
LIPOSUCTION: A RECOVERY GUIDE
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to remove unwanted body fat. It involves sucking out small areas of fat that are hard to lose through exercise and a healthy diet. It’s carried out on areas of the body where deposits of fat tend to collect, such as the buttocks, hips, thighs and tummy. The aim is to alter body shape, and the results are generally long-lasting, providing you maintain a healthy weight. It works best in people who are a normal weight and in areas where the skin is tight.
7 Facial Wrinkles Smoothed by Botox
Aging is an inevitable result of living, and wrinkles are a sign of aging. Collagen in the dermis is made up of fibers of protein that, along with elastin, give strength, support, and resilience to the skin. Collagen production starts to slow down as early as one’s thirties. The strands break up and decrease number. This, along with hyperactive facial muscles, sun damage, and years of tobacco use all contribute to wrinkle formation.
Facelift Surgery: What to Expect
A face-lift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a younger appearance in your face. The procedure can reduce the sagging or folds of skin on the cheeks and jawline and other changes in the shape of your face that occur with age. During a face-lift, a flap of skin on each side of the face is pulled back, and tissues below the skin are surgically altered to return the contour of the face to a more youthful shape. Before the flap is sutured closed, excess skin is removed. A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done as part of a face-lift to reduce fat deposits and sagging skin on the neck. A face-lift won’t decrease fine creases or wrinkles in your skin or damage from sun exposure. Other cosmetic procedures can address the appearance or quality of the skin itself.
Discover the Benefits of Body Lift Surgery
A body lift is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess tissue after significant weight loss. The procedure offers numerous benefits to those that have lost weight quickly due to bariatric surgery or their own dieting efforts. If you have reached the target number on the scale but do not see the results you were hoping for when you look in the mirror, body contouring surgery may be the right choice for you.

Your Complete Guide to Liposuction
Liposuction involves removing unwanted subcutaneous fat while simultaneously re-contouring to create a more aesthetically appealing body. While not a treatment for obesity, liposuction- liposculpture selectively removes persistent and unwanted subcutaneous fat.
Bothersome fatty deposits are found in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, such as the face, neck, breast, abdomen, upper arm, hips, thighs, knees, and ankles. Liposuction-liposculpture can be performed on multiple areas at one time – your surgeon will follow accepted guidelines regarding safe volumes which may be removed in one session. While goals include size improvement, this procedure is not for weight loss. Final results may not be evident for 6 months following your procedure.
During this time your body balances fluids and the skin and remodels underlying tissues. Final results also depend on proper nutrition, exercise and decreasing your caloric intake.
How To Get The Perfect Lips For Your Face
Read my lips: I’m not saying you need lip injections. But if you’d like to try them or are curious about the procedure (and it’s kind of impossible not to be, given the current state of pouty celebrities and volumising lip products), it’s important to fill up on facts before you go plumping anything.
The objective in treating the upper lip is to artistically create a form that harmonizes with the patient’s unique facial features and takes into account the age and ethnic background of the patient. The goal in treating the lower lip is to create bulk and greater prominence and artistic projection of the vermilion. The physician must establish appropriate guidelines and patient expectations for augmentation relative to normal lip proportions in order to avoid a cartoon-like appearance.
J PLASMA RENUVION: rejuvenate and tighten skin in the face, neck & body
Loss of tissue elasticity and tone is a hallmark of aging skin. It is the characteristic change that makes one start to look older than one feels inside. Until recently, no surgical procedure or energy source achieved consistent significant tightening without an extensive recovery. Now, whether ultrasonic liposuction is used in conjunction with J-Plasma Renuvion for skin tightening or not, there is hardly an area of the body that cannot be treated.
J-Plasma Renuvion is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses cold plasma energy on the underside of the skin to instantly tighten and rejuvenate anywhere on the face and body. A unique alternative to traditional facelifts, tummy tucks, and body sculpting, the J-Plasma Renuvion procedure will shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or complications of cosmetic surgery.

After pregnancy or weight loss, excess skin and fat can distort the appearance of the abdomen. In particular, many women find that after their second child or after bearing twins, their muscles and skin do not return to their original appearance secondary to repeated stretch of the abdomen. The abdominoplasty, or “tummy tuck” procedure, creates a flatter, firmer abdomen by removing excess fat and skin, and tightening the abdominal muscles. You are a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you are at a stable weight and are physically healthy, you have realistic expectations, and you do not smoke.

Injectable dermal fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill hollows, lines, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 6 months to more than a year. Injectable dermal fillers, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear. Dermal fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, chins, jawlines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping sagging hands.
