Live procedure open house a great success

Breast reduction surgery and obesity

Numerous studies and our own large experience have shown that breast reduction surgery is very successful in relieving symptoms in a wide range of patients, regardless of their weight. However, studies have shown that obese patients (defined a Body Mass Index of 30 or more) undergoing surgery are more prone to complications at the time of surgery and during recovery.   While the overall risks of … Continue reading Breast reduction surgery and obesity

Microneedling

All I can say is “Wow”.  We’re really impressed with the results we’ve been getting with microneedling!   Although this skin treatment has been around for years with so-so results, the new technology which refines and mechanizes this technique with high speed untrafine micro needles is giving us better results at a lower cost than anything we’ve seen.  We now have a treatment that we … Continue reading Microneedling

Lifestyle Lift Shuts Down

An article in the Wall Street Journal on March 2, 2015 began with the sentence, “Lifestyle Lift, a nationwide chain of cosmetic surgery centers, abruptly shut down the majority of its business Monday and said it is considering filing for bankruptcy.”  Apparently various locations around the country have responded differently with some continuing to only see their existing post op patients, some closing their doors … Continue reading Lifestyle Lift Shuts Down

Botched!

A new TV reality show called “Botched” has a lot of people talking. In case you haven’t seen it, the show focuses on people who have had previous plastic surgery procedures who are dissatisfied with their outcome and seek to have corrective procedures. Like most “reality” TV programs, they feature some colorful characters and at times the show is a little over the top. But … Continue reading Botched!

Abdominoplasty and BMI

We were recently asked by a patient how BMI affects our decision to perform abdominoplasty. We thought this was an excellent question and I’ll paraphrase it below. Every case is individual and I don’t necessarily have a cutoff or absolute BMI number that determines if I will or won’t do an abdominoplasty. I lot of factors play into the decision. I tell all my patients … Continue reading Abdominoplasty and BMI
