Are you ready for a facelift?

For much of the history of cosmetic surgery, the way to reverse the signs of facial aging has been to surgically reposition the tissue beneath the skin’s surface. Today, we’ve got a virtual smorgasbord of treatments that are capable of tightening and lifting and plumping and then some. These choices present us with more opportunity to meet our needs. They may also make it difficult to decide which approach is best. We offer an in-between: the Silhouette InstaLift™. Not everyone needs a full lift. In fact, many of the men and women who seek more information about facelift surgery are smack dab in those years we call mid-life. Between the ages of 40 and 60, the degree of aging that has occurred varies quite a…


What You Need to Know About Exercise After Cosmetic Surgery

Diet, exercise, and cosmetic surgery go hand-in-hand for many people. This is true even if the procedure that is being considered focuses on the face instead of the body. In instances of body contouring, most patients who seek surgical intervention have tried to achieve the toned, slim physique they want by eating well, losing weight, and exercising regularly. As we have come to know, these strategies are great for general health and wellness but may not help us attain our desired appearance. For the final touch, surgery may be needed. Whatever your interest is, whether related to body contouring or facial rejuvenation – what you do after surgery matters. Here, we discuss the issue of exercise after cosmetic surgery and offer tips on how to…


Dry skin? Here’s How to Protect Your Skin during the colder months.

If you’re interested in preserving the youthful nature of your skin and want to avoid the common irritation that occurs in the winter months, moisture is the name of the game you want to start playing.

Breast Lift Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ

Breastfeeding after a Breast Lift: What You Need to Know

Breast surgeries are a common component of Mommy Makeover procedures, understandably so. Pregnancy alone changes the body in numerous ways. Adding months of breastfeeding after childbirth may result in dramatic deflation and sagging once the body has returned to hormonal balance and normal weight. For the woman who wants to regain a sense of satisfaction with her breasts, mastopexy may be an excellent option. What is a Breast Lift? Often, when women consider how they can improve the way they feel about their breasts, it is augmentation with breast implants that comes to mind. There is value in this approach, but it is also critical for women to obtain care from a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands how tissue laxity may affect the outcome of…

Age is a Factor in Gynecomastia

Many men find it difficult to love the way they look because of the size and shape of their breasts.

Correcting Breast Asymmetry

There is a common assumption that, while breast size may differ from one woman to another, the size of one woman’s breasts will be equal. We don’t often stop to consider that a woman may have one breast that is noticeably smaller than the other. The reason for breast asymmetry is not entirely understood. However, the consequences of this problem are no secret to the women who struggle to fit into clothing and feel confident in intimate situations. Fortunately, having two different sized breasts is usually no more than a cosmetic issue. If a size difference occurs suddenly, though, it is important to undergo a medical evaluation to ascertain why. Correcting Breast Asymmetry The progress that has been made in plastic surgery has enabled the…


Nutrient Testing Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ

Why Consider Nutrient Testing?

More people are becoming interested in how they can manage their aging process with food and supplements. This move toward healthy living is advantageous and also a little confusing. Multiple studies show that what’s on your plate really can heal you – or hurt you. However, it’s not quite this simple. According to statistics, a vast majority of the population is missing the mark. Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey revealed that more than 90% of Americans are deficient in vitamin E. More than 55% have a magnesium deficiency. Why This Matters Micronutrients, the vitamins and minerals that we consume daily, are crucial to every physiological function of the body. Your body relies on adequate amounts of micronutrients such as vitamins A,…

Liposuction Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ

Why Liposuction is Not the Answer to Cottage Cheese Thighs

This is the time of year when a lot of people start thinking about how they look. We know summer is coming, and that means we’ll be spending a lot more time in bathing suits and shorts. When we know bathing suit season is just around the corner, we may begin to panic about problems like saddle-bags, love-handles, and the dreaded cellulite. To address these concerns, it makes sense to think about liposuction. At the same time, this assumption about liposuction being the answer you need could be wrong. What makes cellulite so stubborn? All fat can seem more stubborn than a two-year-old with a strong dislike of naps. Cellulite is even worse than the average fat that hangs around the hips, thighs, and stomach….
