Aging: How to Reduce Jowls

Aging has some positive aspects to it; we gain perspective, we collect memories and friends and accomplishments. The physical changes that come with age should not overshadow the benefits, but they easily can. Lines and wrinkles deepen, the contours of the cheeks diminish, and the lower face loses its sharpness. Let’s face it, no matter […]

Post-Facelift, it’s all About Maintenance

Aging is an endless process that we may begin to address as early as our teens (if we are well-informed, or have French ancestors). From this standpoint, you could say that maintenance is a valuable task even before the idea of a facelift forms. If you are considering what this procedure can do for you, […]


Which Breast Implant is Right for You

Which Breast Implant is Right for You?

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery began its physician surveying 2 decades ago. Since that time, their surveys have confirmed that breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures; not just in a given year, but year after year after year.

Liposuction and Post-Operative Swelling

Liposuction and Post-Operative Swelling

Liposuction has been a common cosmetic procedure for many years. Since its inception, the procedure has morphed right along with the development of innovative technologies, such as tumescence or ultrasound. These changes have made the surgical removal of fat a gentler, more creative process. Still, swelling is pretty much a given. Post-operative swelling is not […]

Why a Facelift may be for you

Aesthetic medicine has come a long way since the early days of cosmetic surgery procedures. Each month, it seems like we are met with a new development; some innovative new way to fight the progression of age, at least the appearance of it. If you are in the midst of your own aging process and […]


Thinking of Tucking? Let’s Talk about Timing!
