Our society considers hair on the head as attractive and desirable. Unfortunately, it is quite different when hair shows up on other parts of the body – especially the female body. In most cultures, hair on the legs, armpits, arms and face is highly unwelcome. Both men and women can become embarrassed about hair that grows on their back. Since we can’t always control how much hair we develop on our bodies, we must take matters into our own hands to protect our self-confidence. This involves keeping unwanted body hair trimmed, manicured or completely removed.
The most common methods of removing unwanted hair include shaving with a razor, special hair removal creams and waxing. Unfortunately, these tools don’t work well for everyone, and they come with several drawbacks, such as discomfort, irritation or the fact that they need to be repeated often. Whether you are tired of waxing your back regularly or just not getting a close enough shave on your legs, laser hair removal can be an ideal solution. … Continue reading
Facial fillers and facelifts are both popular ways to turn back the hands of time. However, while fillers and facelifts are effective at creating a more youthful appearance, they do so in vastly different ways. Fillers is a non-surgical procedure with no downtime, yet the results are only temporary. On the other hand, a facelift involves more invasive surgical techniques, but the outcome is more permanent or longer-lasting.
To no surprise, the cost of these treatments can also differ. However, if you’ve been using fillers for several years, it may be time to add up your expense of repeated treatments and temporary results and compare it to a one-time facelift surgery investment. … Continue reading

Are you plagued by a fatigued appearance because of your sagging or puffy eyelids? Despite feeling energetic or young, the aged appearance of the eyes can tell a different story. Over time, it is common to develop bulging fat and excess skin along the eyelids. While acute eye puffiness can be a result of allergies, dehydration or lack of sleep, when your puffy eye bags take up permanent residence, it is likely a sign of aging, and it may be time to see a plastic surgeon. … Continue reading
As we age, the brows can lose their ideal position and youthful arch. Drooping brows can create deep wrinkles in the forehead and cause the eyes to look tired or sad. A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, can address drooping or ptotic brows caused by aging. Not only is the brow restored to a more youthful position, but this procedure also creates a more “awake” appearance within the eyes and softens wrinkles in the forehead. Although a brow lift involves the release of muscles across the forehead and between the eyes, a skilled plastic surgeon is careful to avoid relaxing the muscles that would impede natural facial expressions.

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a common procedure in facial plastic surgery for both men and women. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most intricate and challenging cosmetic procedures, which leads many patients to seek revision surgery. It takes a skilled facial plastic surgeon to correct a previous rhinoplasty and achieve ideal results.
While any type of plastic surgery has the potential for complications or poor results, the nose is especially vulnerable due its central position on the face as well as the delicate tissues, bone and cartilage that are involved. Rhinoplasty can involve subpar techniques during surgery or poor healing after the procedure. It is not always within the control of the surgeon, and every patient is unique. The most common reasons that patients seek revision rhinoplasty include: … Continue reading
