Do You Need a Lift With Your Implants?

One of the most common questions we get from patients who are looking for a breast augmentation is whether or not they need a lift as well. This is one of the more difficult and important decisions to make- both for the surgeon and patient- so it is important to consider many things. A lift is needed when the implant will not be enough to re-position the skin of the breast and nipple onto the correct portion of the implant.

Should I Combine Brow Lift and Eyelid Surgery?

Many types of procedures can be combined to achieve either better or more far-reaching results than either treatment could alone. This is often particularly true of brow lift and eyelid surgery.

As a result, incorporating both techniques in a treatment plan often can lead to more effective rejuvenation. Excess eyelid skin can make a patient appear tired, sad, or older than their age. This effect can be caused by skin laxity in the eyelid area alone; however, it’s […]

Can I Get a Browlift Without Surgery?

With time, these expressions can leave behind wrinkles along the forehead that may make you appear older than you feel. A surgical brow lift from our experienced plastic surgeons can be an excellent option to treat symptoms in an advanced stage. If you have fine lines and little to no skin laxity, however, a non-surgical brow lift may be right for you.

How Long Is Recovery After Fraxel® Re:Pair and DUAL 1550/1927 Laser Treatment?
