Am I candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body in order to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. New technology has allowed for different techniques that improve accuracy. Today, liposuction is usually performed via the tumescent technique or with the help of ultrasound imaging or a laser. These new technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure.

The ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, maintains a healthy lifestyle, and has one or more problem areas with unresponsive fat deposits. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations, and remember that liposuction cannot be used as a means for major weight loss. Are you problem areas resistant to healthy eating and exercise? Then liposuction might be the right option for you!

Liposuction can be used to treat localized fat deposits within the: thighs, abdomen, arms, back, hips, buttocks, chest, face, calves, and ankles. It may be performed alone, or can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck, to achieve maximum results.

If you are interested in learning more about liposuction, and want to see if you are a good candidate, please call us today to schedule a consultation: 631-751-4400.

Breast Procedures: What’s the best for me?

Women may decide to undergo cosmetic plastic surgery to enlarge, lift or reduce their breasts. Some undergo surgery to achieve a balance in size or shape for their breasts. Whatever the motivation, breast surgery is safer and recovery is easier now than ever before. If you are unhappy and have lost your self confidence due to breast size and/or shape, take a second to review the list of breast services we have to offer.

BREAST AUGMENTATION: Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. Breast augmentation may give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.

BREAST LIFT: A woman’s breasts may droop as a result of the natural effects of aging, heredity, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss. A breast lift is performed to return youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged or lost volume and firmness.

BREAST REDUCTION: Large breasts can cause pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, and low self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide relief from these symptoms. This procedure removes fat and tissue and tightens skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION: Breast reconstruction restores a natural, symmetrical appearance, maintains body proportion, and boosts self-confidence for women who have lost one or both breasts to mastectomy or who lack breasts due to a congenital or developmental abnormality. Reconstructive surgeons strive to create a new breast and nipple that resemble the woman’s natural breast as closely as possible in shape, size and position.

We can help you make an informed decision and achieve the most satisfying results. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us today: 631-751-4400.

Fall Wellness: Healthy tips for chillier days

Fall is here, which means winter is near. That also means cold winds and a snowy forecast is just around the corner. While you might be shopping around for your new winter coat, keep in mind your face needs attention too! We have a solution – chemical peels! Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin.

There are three types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a more youthful look. They may be covered by insurance if they are performed for medical rather than cosmetic reasons.

AHAs are the gentlest of the three types of chemical peel. They smooth and brighten skin by treating fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. AHAs are typically applied once a week, or may be mixed in a milder concentration with a cream or cleanser to be used daily; treatment takes 10 minutes or less.

TCAs are commonly used for medium-depth peeling (though depth is adjustable) to treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems, sometimes in combination with AHAs. TCAs are the preferred chemical solution for darker-skinned patients and may be used on the neck and other areas of the body. Multiple treatments may be required, but treatments only last 10-15 minutes and recovery time is short.

Phenol, the strongest chemical peel, treats deeper skin problems such as coarse facial wrinkles, pre-cancerous growths, and areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure, aging or birth-control pills. Phenol is used only on the face. Full-facial treatment can last an hour or two and recovery can take a few months, with possible skin lightening and removal of freckles.

If you are interested in learning more about the types of chemical peels we offer, or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us today: 631-751-4400

Breast Augmentation: Restoring Confidence & A Youthful Shape

Have you ever looked into your mirror and longed for a more youthful shape, or dreamed of a different, better-proportioned you? Then you are not alone! In fact, breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. A breast augmentation may give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.

Our patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons, including balancing breast size, compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy, and correcting a congenital breast defect. For this reason, every one of our patients enjoys completely customized treatment designed with her specific goals in mind. Under our doctors’ expert care, patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.

Breast augmentation may achieve dramatic and beautiful results on its own as well as in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery or non-invasive procedures*. We sometimes recommend combining breast augmentation with other procedures such as a breast lift for more satisfying results.

If you are interested in learning more about a breast augmentation, or any other service we offer please call us today to schedule a consultation: 631-751-4400.

OILY SKIN: Causes and Treatments

Have you ever looked at your cellphone screen after a phone call and noticed there was oil from your face on the screen? Does your face always look shiny when looking at pictures of yourself? Everyone has natural oils within their skin, but some secret more oil than others.

Oily skin is caused by excess skin oil produced within the pores, and the amount of oil fluctuates with hormone fluctuation. For example, an adolescent going through puberty is experiencing a high hormone fluctuation and thus will be more likely to excrete more oil from their pores. It all comes down to one’s genetic makeup and how his or her body reacts to life events.

Here are some tips and tricks to treating oily skin:

    • Cleanse: Use a gentle face cleanser twice a day
    • Moisturize: Moisturize your skin every day
    • Oil-free products: Use oil-free face products especially when it comes to makeup
    • ZO Acne Facial Treatment: This treatment, offered by our spa, is used to minimize excess oil production and tighten pores. This process while is a deep pore cleansing treatment it also encourages healing and reduces inflammation using eucalyptus and kaolin which which will help to calm and soothe.
