Tummy Tuck – Repairing and Strengthening from the Inside Out

By |July 28th, 2023|Tummy Tuck|

Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, can correct some of the unwanted after effects of pregnancy or significant weight loss. It addresses loose, flabby skin, stretch marks, and a bulging belly. These unwelcome changes to the body post-pregnancy or weight loss usually don’t respond well to diet and exercise. An abdominoplasty helps the patient achieve a slimmer, more toned and contoured stomach. While the cosmetic improvements of a tummy tuck are often the patient’s main goal, there are internal reasons why the surgery may be beneficial. Repairs Stomach Muscles The sets of muscles that make up the abdominal wall are very elastic. They are able to stretch easily. The muscles are [...]

Is There a Fix for Sagging Cheeks?

By |July 26th, 2023|Face and Neck, Facelift|

One of the consequences of aging is the loss of cheek volume.  The high, full cheeks we enjoyed in our youth begin to sag.  Cheeks may become flat or hollowed.  Laugh lines may appear more prominent.  The face loses its natural contours, making it appear older and tired.  Is there a fix for this problem? A midface or cheek lift surgery addresses these issues.  A cheek lift elevates the fat pads in the cheeks to bring back fullness in the midface region.  A traditional facelift targets sagging in the lower face, particularly around the jaw and neckline.  A cheek lift restores volume and contour to the midface, giving the face [...]

Enhance Facial Volume for a More Youthful Appearance

By |June 23rd, 2023|Dermal Fillers, Face and Neck|

A natural consequence of aging is the loss of volume in key areas of the face.  This occurs because the body produces less collagen and elastin, which provide structure and flexibility to the skin.  Lifestyle habits such as weight gain and loss, smoking, and too much sun exposure also take a toll.  Our genetics can intensify the process. Dermal fillers are an excellent solution for treating loss of volume in the face.  Fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance the body produces naturally.  Hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, fills in lines and creases, and minimizes the signs of aging.  Injectable fillers help replenish the hyaluronic acid our bodies may [...]

Eyelid Lift the Years Away!!

By |May 30th, 2023|Uncategorized|

Drooping and sagging eyelids can make people look tired and older than they may actually be.  Puffy bags below the eyes can make them seem to bulge out.  Droopy lids may even interfere with vision.  This can happen to both women and men as they age.  An eyelid lift can eliminate excess fat, muscle, and skin, leaving the face rejuvenated and looking years younger. How are eyelids affected by aging? Skin and muscles lose tightness and firmness with aging.  Skin laxity increases as the body’s collagen production decreases.  This leads to fine lines and wrinkles, particularly in the delicate skin around the eyes.  Muscles can weaken, providing less support than [...]

A New Nonsurgical Option to Restore Jawline Definition

By |March 28th, 2023|Dermal Fillers, Face and Neck|

It’s not uncommon to lose jawline definition as we age. This is often referred to as a weak jawline. The edge of the chin may develop a soft, rounded angle as fat builds below the jawline in the neck. At the same time, the fat pads in the mid-face may get smaller, causing the lower face to appear droopy. What can be done to fight aging and restore jawline definition? Why do changes to the jawline occur? Some physical features are determined in part by genetics. This includes the structure of the jaw. The mandible, or lower jaw, may be smaller, or the person may have a natural overbite. A [...]

Why Medical Grade Skincare and the Right Ingredients Matter
