  • The Most Effective Eye Solutions for Your Circles, Bags, and Wrinkles

    Our eyes are the windows to our souls, it’s true. But, they are also the window to our rough nights, our long days, and our oh-so-taxing weeks. When we’re tired, stressed, or not feeling well, we can see it in and around our eyes – making them one of the first spots that show the signs of aging. To boot, there are a seemingly endless array of eye issues that plague us and I know I’m already exploring options to fix some myself. 

  • Is it Better to Have Fillers Injected with a Micro-Cannula?

    Your chronological age, genetics, exposure to the sun and certain lifestyle factors all play a role in how well your skin ages. Of the many ways your doctor can help you reverse the signs of aging, dermal fillers are considered a godsend by those who use them for their ability to restore lost volume and help turn back the hands of time without having to undergo invasive surgery. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Aretefill and more are used to contour the face, plump thinning lips, soften wrinkles and even diminish the look of certain scars. 

  • Fillers May Very Well be the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

    It’s no secret that injectables are as mainstream as makeup in 2016 — there’s no more stigma or shame associated with visiting a doctor for a little something here or there, but while Botox and similar neurotoxins were the way to go in past years, fillers are certainly the way of the future.  

  • Fat or Fiction? Is Microfat Better for Your Face Than Fillers?

    As an aging woman, there are a handful of things I hold grudges against: gravity, collagen and adorable teenagers with their perky boobs and years of dewiness left in their skin. That said, I try to arm myself with the right weapons to fight the first two and I avoid high schools.

    Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is one of the fastest growing trends in plastic surgery with close to 85,000 fat transfer procedures to the face, breasts and buttocks performed last year alone, according to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. More than 18,000 fat transfers were performed on the buttocks exclusively, and it’s no surprise since fat grafting is a great way to use your own fat, harvested through liposuction, which is then placed into the buttocks to add volume. But is your ability to pursue fat transfer to the buttocks in jeopardy? 

  • Fat Transfer for Breasts, Buttocks, Calves and Face: Get Curves in all the Right Places

You can put those demonized “problem areas” to good use with a fat transfer procedure for the breasts, buttocks, calves or face.

  • Are Your Favorite Comfort Snacks and Cocktails Aging Your Skin?

    Whether its date night with your sweetheart or stress eating after a long day, there are certain treats that play a big part in our life with sugar, dairy and wine likely included in that role for most of us. But are our favorite forms of feeding our soul consequently destroying our skin?

  • It Isn’t All About Looks - Believe it or Not, Plastic Surgery Has Physical Health Benefits!

    I know what you are thinking. Even while writing the title of this post I was thinking the exact same thing: Our society’s long-held notion is that plastic surgery’s benefits to its patients are ultimately about helping one improve their appearance and their self-perceived imperfections, thereby enabling them to feel more secure and confident.
