  • 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.  

  • Could the FDA Be Taking Away Your Right to a Fuller Derriere?!

    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

    In a dream world, we don’t have fat pockets, but rather curves exactly where we want them. Well, hold on to your fat ladies, and get ready to live the dream! You can put those demonized “problem areas” to good use with a fat transfer procedure for the breasts, buttocks, calves or face. Yes, that fat you want to disappear can actually be aggregated to plump up lines and wrinkles, as well as other areas lacking robust curves while trimming the areas where it is most unsightly. 

  • A Legit Way to Lose Extra Fat in 25 Minutes?!? YES!!!

    We all want the very best in as little time and with as little effort as possible. We are human after all. And having a great body is no exception. So, if there was a non-invasive laser that worked in minutes and sculpted our problem areas, wouldn’t it be too good to be true? One would think – but it’s not. SculpSure is the real deal, and it’s here. It is among a variety of cutting-edge non-invasive lipolysis treatments including CoolSculpting, Thermage, UltraShape and Zerona to name a few. 

  • 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. 

  • Lower Body Lift: What is it? And Is it Right for you?

    A lower body lift expeditiously improves the shape of the entire lower body after significant weight loss. These procedures are long, complicated and most of the time requires overnight stays. This massive surgery is performed in one fell swoop and includes a combination of procedures executed simultaneously that result in the following:  

  • The Corset Body Lift Can be a Game Changer after Massive Weight Loss

    Massive weight loss is an amazing accomplishment, regardless of how it is achieved, (surgery, diet, exercise or combination thereof). Of course, those of us who have not undergone such an extreme weight loss could not possibly fathom its after-effects. I know I’ve watched reality shows like Extreme Weight Loss and been stupefied by the amount of excess skin that a person is left with after meeting their weight loss goals. 

  • Does Choosing Cosmetic Surgery (Particularly a ‘Mommy Makeover’) Send the Wrong Message to Our Kids?

    If anyone knows a thing or two about putting the needs of others before their own, it is a mother. As one myself, I basically handed over my body when I decided to take on the awesome responsibility of getting pregnant. I swore off coffee, shellfish, I only slept on my side, I quit wine, and well, I essentially became the crankiest and most anxious version of myself for the 10 months of pregnancy and the six months following since I chose to breastfeed. 

  • We’ve Got Your Back with The Bra Line Back lift

    Who among us hasn’t experienced the very real and deep dressing room torture that ensues when stripping to skivvies in a three-way mirror? Not to mention the frustration with checking out one’s rear view in an especially form-fitting dress or top. If working out and eating clean isn’t doing the job and baby’s still got back, (but not exactly where it’s wanted) – then a bra line back lift may help. We caught up with Dr. Joseph P. 

  • Here’s One Way to Literally Freeze Your ‘Muffin Top’ Off

    Under the heading of “Things That Sound Too Good to Be True,” CoolSculpting, at first glance, might top the list. It’s a non-invasive treatment that uses a vacuum applicator (essentially a suction device) along with intense cooling to target the area of excess fat. We scored the scoop from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Law on why this procedure is the real deal.
