Warmer days are just around the corner, don't miss our March special!

Can you just imagine walking down the beach, feeling the sand between your toes and the warmth of the sun on your shoulders?  I must say that sounds extremely appealing after all the snow and bitterly cold temperatures we have endured for the past two months.   

The beach is such a nice getaway, but sadly many people avoid the beach and the pool because they are embarrassed to be seen in a swim suit or even shorts. The good news is you don’t have to be embarrassed about your appearance, or miss out on the fun and relaxation. With spring fast approaching, this is the ideal time to consider your options. Liposuction is a remarkable method to directly contour fat in areas where there is good skin elasticity.  I frequently do multiple areas at one time like the love handles, the tummy, the saddlebags and inner thighs.  

The best news is that this procedure has perhaps the easiest of all recoveries, with minimal downtime.  If you have loose skin of your abdomen, there is nothing better than a tummy tuck to improve muscle tone and create an athletic appearance.  

For those interested, I am offering $500 off a multiple site liposuction or a tummy tuck for the month of March. I thought this was an ideal time to offer this promotion…just in time to get you ready for that walk down the beach!

February Special: Love Your Lips!

Let’s face it, full lips are viewed as a sign of sensuality and youth. We tend to focus on the aging face using facial creams, lasers and surgery, but we seldom give our lips the same care and attention. Because of this neglect, once young, vibrant, full lips become a distant memory. 

Fortunately, there are relatively easy solutions to restore the lips to a more youthful state. They can be enlarged using fillers, autologous fat (our own fat) and lip implants.  All of these modalities are effective and are used in my practice.

For most people, I tend to favor the Perma Facial lip implants because they provide a permanent solution. These implants are made of a soft, smooth solid, contoured silicone. The implant cannot rupture or deflate, and the great news is that the procedure is easily carried out in the office.  The photo below is one of my patients who has had the implants…you decide.

Let’s not forget the texture of your lips.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this limited edition Luscious Lips Combo by Therapon will leave your lips feeling smooth. As most of you know, Therapon is our wonderful skin care line that provides answers to pigment, texture and most any other skin care concern.

As you can see, there are clearly many options available and there is no excuse to ignore your lips any longer. Whether your lips are too thin or have lines or texture issues, there are solutions.  I look forward to seeing you so that we may discuss how you can have more youthful lips. 

As an added incentive for the month of February, I am offering a $300.00 discount on the Perma Facial Lip Implant procedure.  There is no reason not to…LOVE YOUR LIPS!

What is a 'Lifestyle Lift'?

The Lifestyle Lift is a short scar facelift with a catchy trademarked name. There are a number of “limited scar” and “quick recovery” procedures currently on the market. It’s important to keep in mind that the results of a facelift are as much about the surgeon doing the surgery as the technique itself.  It is very important to chose a surgeon based on their credentials and training and to see if their before and after photos appeal to your interest.

If you are considering a facelift, don't forget that January is a wonderful time to do so, as we are offering $500 off all facelift procedures! 

I look forward to discussing your options and helping you meet your aesthetic goals. Hope to see you soon. Please call 859–278–8504 with questions.

Facelift Surgery: Myths vs. Facts

There are many myths out there about facelift surgery, we wanted to take some time to distinguish myths vs. facts.

FACT: It is very rare that people have significant pain after a facelift even when it's combined with eyelid surgery and or a Browlift. 

FACT: My practice style is to achieve a natural or refreshed look rather than an operated look. 

FACT: Surgery at a young age (45-55) is actually better. You will generally age better and get a longer-lasting result that can go 8-12 years.

If you are considering a facelift, don't forget that January is a wonderful time to do so, as we are offering $500 off all facelift procedures! Please call 859.278.8504 to schedule your consultation today!

January Special!

A facelift is a surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of aging of the lower face and neck.  As we age, the skin and soft tissues of our face lose their elasticity and gravity takes over. The result is sagging skin that makes us look tired, stern, and older.

A facelift knows no age.  

Whether you are 45 or 70, a facelift can diminish the signs of aging so you look as good as you feel.  I have patients that think if they wait a “couple of more years” before having surgery it will last longer.  Sounds good in theory, but while they are waiting they are aging and the fat and collagen in their face is diminishing, causing more loose saggy skin and deeper facial lines. I like to tell those patients that no matter what age you might choose to have surgery, if you were an identical twin and you had a facelift, and your twin did not, you would always look more youthful than your twin. So I say…enjoy the benefits as long as you can.

I encourage you to make an appointment so that we can discuss your goals, review your options, and then create an individualized treatment plan that will help you achieve your desired results.  January would be a great month to give facial aesthetic surgery serious consideration, as I am offering $500.00 off a facelift procedure for anyone who mentions our blog.

I look forward to discussing your options and helping you meet your aesthetic goals. Hope to see you soon. Please call 859–278–8504 with questions.
