    Lips—pretty amazing, right? They eat, they talk, they whistle, they kiss, they pout, they smile. Lips are 100 times more sensitive than fingertips.

  • Stack ‘Em Up: A Noninvasive Approach to the Facelift

    For most people considering plastic surgery, no words ring sweeter than ‘noninvasive and minimally procedures,’ and those are exactly the words used when discussing the innovative ways that your plastic surgeon can combine a one-two-(sometimes three) punch of skin tightening, injectables and laser treatments in order to achieve near-surgical facelift results without going under the knife.
