Your diet and lifestyle choices can significantly impact the aging process. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help slow the aging process and improve your overall health. In this blog post, we’ll explore the science behind how your diet and lifestyle choices impact the aging process. The Effect Of Diet On Aging Our bodies change as we age in a variety of ways.

Comments Off on The New Wave in Female Rejuvenation Surgery

As a woman ages, her breasts tend to lose their youthful shape and perkiness. This can be especially distressing for young women who are just starting out in life as well as older ones who want to look good at any age. Fortunately, there is now a variety of surgical options available to help women regain the appearance they want. What is female rejuvenation? Female rejuvenation is a term used to describe surgical procedures that focus on improving the appearance of a woman’s body rather than treating medical conditions such as gynecomastia or excess skin after weight loss or pregnancy. Because these procedures are typically less invasive than other cosmetic surgery options, they are often used as a first step before moving on to more…

The process of breast augmentation is a common procedure, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. The best candidate for breast augmentation is a woman who wants to improve her appearance and boost her self-confidence. Breast augmentation can be an excellent way to enhance your physical appearance and boost your self-esteem. Breast implants are designed to look and feel like natural breasts. They can be used to increase the size of your breasts or correct breast asymmetry. Do I Need a Breast Augmentation?

Comments Off on Should A Breast Lift be Combined with Breast Augmentation?

Breast lifts and breast augmentations are separate treatments. In some cases, the procedures are paired to create a flawless look for the patient.  What is a Breast Lift? A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. Many factors contribute to sagging breasts, including pregnancy, age, weight loss, and gravity.  By trimming the excess skin and tightening breast tissue, the breast lift helps bring the breast higher up on the body for a more firm appearance. Breast lifts do not require implant insertion. In general, these lifts remove unwanted skin and tissue.  What is Breast Augmentation?  Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size of the breast or addresses asymmetry. It is also the perfect treatment for people…

Liposuction with Loose Skin: Is it Possible?

Comments Off on Liposuction with Loose Skin: Is it Possible?

Prospective plastic surgery patients tend to understand the value of the procedures they consider. Even when a surgical technique may be more complex, it is understood that the complexity of that procedure achieves the most profound cosmetic effects. This understanding is helpful for many patients but doesn’t always negate the desire for more conservative approaches. Generally, liposuction is considered pretty conservative. A tummy tuck, not so much. Where does this leave the person who has loose abdominal skin who also would love to avoid a tummy tuck? We may have a solution. ThermiTight as a Complement to Liposuction Radiofrequency skin tightening has become quite popular in the past several years. This technology stimulates deep tissue remodeling without the risks that were associated with CO2 laser…

Is Your Blood the Key to Hair Growth?

If you tend to keep up with the latest advancements in cosmetic medicine, you’ve likely heard about a treatment dubbed the “vampire facial.” The reason it is referred to as such is that the specialized facial rejuvenation treatment works via the patient’s blood. Contrary to the way it sounds, a vampire facial does not involve slathering blood over the skin. It involves a blood product called PRP, platelet-rich plasma. There are two components that make up the blood. These are the red blood cells and the plasma. The latter is a colorless substance that is rich in growth factors. These substances act as messengers in the body. Depending on the need, growth factors signal various cells to function. In the case of the vampire facial,…

Millions of people are living with some degree of hair loss. While it may be a common problem, it’s certainly a frustrating one. Historically, people who wanted to correct their hair loss had to do so via complicated, sometimes painful hair transplant surgery. This is still done, though with much more finesse. As an alternative, some physicians offer PRP hair restoration treatment. Platelet-rich plasma is an integral part of our hair restoration program. Here, we discuss how the process works,  how PRP works, and why you may want to schedule your consultation now. What Is PRP Hair Restoration? Platelet-rich plasma is a substance that is found in your own blood. This makes it very safe and easy to obtain. To get PRP, Dr. Ong or…

Labiaplasty procedures have become more common in recent years as women have discovered the aesthetic, physical, and emotional benefits of this treatment. While we discuss labiaplasty as an aesthetic gynecology type of treatment, our patients gain much more than improved satisfaction with their appearance. They also feel more physically comfortable without the tugging, chaffing, and painful sex that they had been living with. And, as a result, their state of mind often improves significantly once they are freed of the burden of oversized labia. As a leading provider in women’s health procedures, Dr. Ong is often asked about labiaplasty recovery. Here, we discuss some of the ways that this brief period of swelling and tenderness can be managed. Healing Well after Labiaplasty Wear clothing that…

Facial Rejuvenation: Is an InstaLift Enough?

Comments Off on Facial Rejuvenation: Is an InstaLift Enough?

As we reflect on our appearance after a certain age, we cannot help but notice fine lines, wrinkles, and some sagging in certain areas. When these common signs of aging occur, we have three basic choices. We can simply care for our skin with good products and sunscreen, prolong more youthful tissue behaviors with lasers and other collagen-inducing treatments, or we can have plastic surgery. If you fall somewhere in the middle, you may be interested in evaluating whether or not the Silhouette InstaLift procedure would give you the degree of rejuvenation you want. What is a Thread Lift? The term thread lift describes the Silhouette InstaLift process to a T. It is also a term that may cause some people to look for other…
