Beauty Without Guilt


If watching your diet and exercising to promote good health is a given, how is beauty care so radically different? We work hard to take care of our insides as well as our bodies, but is paying attention to your looks such a narcissistic endeavor? I don’t think so. Plastic surgeons see people across the age spectrum walk through their doors. Some are trying to fix something that has bothered them, some are worried about how age is treating them, and others just want to look as good as they can. Whether it’s injectables, non-invasive skin-tightening procedures or surgery, I enjoy addressing all of it.  Some patients will not breathe a word about having come to me, as if spending money on themselves is the ultimate in self-centeredness. In other words, plastic surgery tends to be a deep, dark secret except, perhaps, between BFFs.  While I understand the need to keep this private, I also don’t see the need for shame. If you remodeled parts of your house it would be no big [...]

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)


A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin and fat and tightens the abdominal muscles for an enhanced contour and more pleasing profile. Multiple pregnancies can stretch a woman's skin and stomach muscles. (If you plan to lose weight or have future pregnancies, you should postpone surgery). Older individuals or those who have lost a significant amount of weight can benefit from a tummy tuck due to the loss of skin elasticity that occurs with aging. A tummy tuck may be the procedure of choice for these conditions, which are resistant to diet and exercise. To balance the body, many women also opt to have a breast lift or a breast augmentation at the same time as the tummy tuck. Liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and thighs is also another common procedure that may be performed with a tummy tuck. For those who have lost a significant amount of weight, an arm lift can also be performed at the same time as the tummy tuck. Read the Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) FAQs Post Op Care  [...]

Despite diet and exercise, some fatty areas of the body are resistant to improvement. Liposuction can improve this by removing unwanted fat deposits from certain areas of the body. The abdomen, flanks, and thighs are good areas for liposuction, and in certain cases the neck, arm, and knee areas can be done as well. The area of the body that undergoes liposuction will be much less likely to have new fat accumulate after the procedure. However, liposuction is not a cure for weight gain in other areas, and the procedure works best when followed by a healthy diet and an effective regimen of exercise. Liposuction is often done in combination with other procedures. For example: liposuction of the neck is usually done in conjunction with a facelift, liposuction of the axillary region may be done with a breast reduction, and liposuction of the abdomen, hips, or thighs may be performed with a tummy tuck.
