  • Brazilian Butt Augmentation

    A Brazilian Butt Lift is a term used to describe fat grafting to enlarge the buttocks and hips giving patients an hourglass silhouette. This surgical procedure is a form of buttock augmentation that not only reshapes but enhances the size of a patient’s buttocks. This is done by using fat from the patient’s body and redistributing to these areas. Your surgeon will take fat from where you don’t want it and add it to areas in need of extra fat to give your body natural looking curves.  

  • Modern Day Facelift

    The stigma around facelifts has changed drastically over the past decades. A facelift (also known as rhytidectomy) is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in a range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation. 

  • Non Invasive Procedures

    Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Isaac Starker shares how plastic surgery has changed from being almost exclusively surgically based to now having an array of treatments options that don’t require surgery and that can be started earlier in life. From treating skin to helping delay signs of aging – with skin care products, energy or light-based treatments, with injectables and fillers. These advancements allow surgeons to continue along the spectrum of care to include some minimally invasive surgical procedures and the moving to more traditional surgical options.
