Did you know that I've tried CoolSculpting, too?

Sometimes I try out the occasional non-surgical treatment to truly understand the treatment from a patient perspective. My experience with CoolSculpting, in particular, has shown me that it can take up to four months to see full results, but the wait is well worth it!

Happy Summer Sun Safety Month!

While it's a common misconception that the sun is closer to the Earth in the summer, our skin is at a heightened risk of sun damage in the summer months because the sun’s rays hit the Earth at a steeper angle, making them more focused.

This is why it's so important to always wear sunscreen and avoid direct contact with the sun to avoid sun damage (and the risk of premature skin aging and cancer that comes with it)!

Today, I'd like to offer some #WednesdayWisdom for all those considering lipo-abdominoplasty (liposuction with a tummy tuck).

Many of my patients start considering returning to the gym once their drains come out. It's important to keep in mind that your body has just gone through a stressful event, and can take a few months for your energy levels and capabilities to return to normal.

Do you have any other questions about recovery from this procedure?

Whether a patient has chosen breast enhancement, body contouring, or facial surgery, we enjoy hearing that friends and family didn’t comment on an obvious surgical change.

Instead, people notice that our patients look healthy, rested, and simply terrific. Cosmetic procedures, when performed by a skilled surgeon with a deep understanding of the latest technology, techniques, and options available, can deliver stunning and natural-looking results. Success for us is when our patients are comfortable, excited about the possibilities, and, ultimately, thrilled with the results.

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a very common procedure that can restore balance to your face by correcting overly-large or protruding ears.

This procedure "pins back" the ears, and typically takes just a few hours! Otoplasty is most often performed on patients between the ages of 5-14, but adults can also benefit from otoplasty.

If you or your child is suffering from an unnatural ear positioning and/or shape, I invite you to schedule an otoplasty consultation with me.

This lovely patient lost over 150lbs from gastric bypass surgery.

She was left with excess skin around much of her midsection, so we decided to do a full arm lift and extended the incisions down the sides of her body to remove redundant skin from her back.

Since the scars are hidden on her sides, she's still able to wear a backless dress with confidence. What do you think of her results?

Answering your Facial Chemical Peel questions...

The heat of the summer leaves many with more skin problems than usual, from hyperpigmentation & acne to fine lines & rough texture.

The solution? Chemical peels!

The variety of peels you can try range from simple at-home glycolic acid peels to the higher concentration TCA peels that require general anesthesia. I recommend an in-between, like a VI or vitality peel, to most of my patients.

This peel:
⭐ Restores a more even skin tone, smooths away rough skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
⭐ Produces incredible results within 7 days
⭐ Is safe for all skin and Fitzpatrick types

Disclaimer: chemical peels can be safe in the summer as long as you generously apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen afterward.
