Did you know these 3๏ธโƒฃ methods of liposuction? โœจ

I ensure that my patients are fully educated on the benefits and drawbacks of each type before we decide which is best for them.

๐Ÿ’กLiposuction slims and reshapes the body by removing excess fat cells. This is not a weight loss procedure.

Would you consider liposuction?

"To have 'normal' looking breasts one day would be a dream come true." -This RealSelf patientโค๏ธ

After struggling with tuberous breasts for years, she decided to see what could help her feel more confident in her own body! Everyone has their own definition of "normal," and we always support a woman's decision to make the changes they'd like to help them feel like the best version of themselves.

๐Ÿ’กRoughly 5% of all breast augmentation patients have a condition known as โ€œhypoplastic tubular breastโ€ or tuberous breasts. This means that the breasts are underdeveloped, leaving them shaped more like a tube rather than being round.

Here is how I commonly correct this condition.

What do you think of this patient's stunning results?! ๐Ÿ˜

This 59-year-old underwent a full facial rejuvenation with:
๐Ÿ’›an endoscopic brow lift
๐Ÿ’›a lower eyelid lift
๐Ÿ’›a midface lift
๐Ÿ’›a full facelift

Call us to start your rejuvenation journey today! ๐Ÿ“ฒ 703-752-6608

Considering breast augmentation? You may be wondering which breast implants are right for you.

While you have several choices to make (implant size, type, incision, etc.), today I'd like to share more about gummy bear implants. The gel in a traditional silicone implant has a give to it. When the implant is vertical, the gel gradually shifts toward the bottom; therefore, silicone gel would not perform well in a shaped implant.

In contrast, the silicone in gummy bear implants is form stable, meaning it will retain its form, which mimics the contours of a natural breast.

We love our patients!

This tummy tuck patient shared a bit about their experience in this lovely testimonial to Dr. Hess and our staff at Hess Plastic Surgery.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€

๐Ÿ’› Restylane USA Kysse is a popular lip filler option amongst my patients. Have you tried it?

This lovely woman underwent a gastric bypass and lost a significant amount of weight... but afterwards, she was unhappy with the appearance of her arms.

I performed a full brachioplasty (arm lift) with extension of the incision down the lateral chest wall. I also performed some liposuction of the lateral chest walls.

These post-op photos are very early, and you can see how pink this patient's arms are. As with ALL scars, they can take a year or two to fully mature.

Would you consider an arm lift?

If glowy, youthful skin is one of your goals this year, look no further๐Ÿ‘‡:

๐Ÿ’› Chemical peels, also known as chemexfoliation, use acids to exfoliate the damaged outer layers of skin. This process stimulates the growth of new skin cells and collagen, resulting in renewed, healthier skin.

๐Ÿ’› Microdermabrasion, a process of mechanically exfoliating the skin to reveal newer, healthier skin beneath.
