Choosing the right facial rejuvenation procedure

When you look in the mirror, are you constantly staring into the eyes of a tired, defeated looking you? Well our doctors can help you in choosing a facial rejuvenation procedure that may give you a naturally beautiful energized appearance that is true to who you are! Here are three procedures that you may want to consider:

BROWLIFTS: Browlifts can revitalize drooping or lined foreheads, helping you look less angry, sad or tired. They involve the removal or alteration of the muscles above the eyes to smooth lines and raise the eyebrows for a more youthful appearance. While browlifts are typically performed on patients aged 40-60 to counteract the effects of aging, anyone with lined or inelastic skin on the forehead are eligible. 

EYELID SURGERY: Factors such as aging, sun damage, smoking, stretching and obesity can cause the eyelids to droop and sag. This area is often one of the first to show signs of damage, as the skin of the eyelid is thinner than the rest of the face. Eyelids that droop or bulge can cause people to appear much older or more fatigued than they actually are. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure that improves the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening muscles and tissue or removing excess fat and skin. This procedure can be performed on men and women alike and offers a younger, more refreshed look that reflects across the whole face.

EAR SURGERY: Individuals who feel self-conscious about their ears and want to improve their appearance may be good candidates for otoplasty. It is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of a person’s ears. Although otoplasty does not affect hearing, it can provide great psychological benefits to anyone who has been teased about the size or shape of their ears, has had a serious ear injury, or simply wants to be more attractive. Otoplasty is most commonly performed to set unusually prominent ears back closer to the head, called ear pinning or to reduce the size of abnormally large ears.

It’s time to get your skin spring ready!


The warmer weather is approaching – thankfully – and that also means our skin will be feeling the changes. The winter can leave your skin, especially your face, feeling cracked, rough, and dry. Luckily, we have a solution! 

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. This procedure uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, leaving fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance. Microdermabrasion may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment. 

The procedure may offer patients effective results that are visible immediately. In addition to its cosmetic results, microdermabrasion also helps enhance circulation and lymph flow, which may allow skin to be healthy on the inside and outside.

The Do’s After Having a Breast Augmentation

Women may decide to undergo cosmetic plastic surgery for many reasons. 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 can 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. 

So you are taking the next step in fulfilling your body goals. How can you make sure you’re setting yourself up for success? One of the best ways to do that is to educate yourself and make sure that you’re prepared for the recovery period after your surgery.

Self-care is one of the most important factors in your breast augmentation recovery. In fact, it will partly determine your final results. Here are some do’s after having a breast augmentation…

    • Avoid heavy lifting.
    • Rest and take it easy.
    • Eat healthy.
    • Follow your doctors directions for recovery.
    • Be patient.
    • Be positive!

Or maybe this is the year you finally get your pre-baby bod back? Whatever it is, we are here to cheer you on! We not only believe in health and wellness, but we truly believe in body confidence. Here are some procedures we specialize in that may help you achieve your best you!

LIPOSUCTION: Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body through a small thin tube. The fat from the targeted area is suctioned from the body through this tube to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance.

TUMMY TUCK: Abdominoplasty, often called a “tummy tuck,” is a popular procedure used to flatten and shape the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. Our doctors have been performing tummy tucks with excellent cosmetic results for many years. Patients love the look of their new flat stomachs after surgery under our doctors’ exceptional care!

MOMMY MAKEOVER: After birth, your body may have trouble regaining its original skin elasticity, muscle tone, and slim physique. Diet and exercise can only restore so much of your pre-pregnancy body. The Mommy Makeover at Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, PC is designed to restore youthful contours!

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is used to remove localized areas of fat from the body to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. This procedure 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.

New technologies have improved the accuracy of this procedure for both patient and doctor, and allow patients to achieve their desired results through a much less invasive procedure. Liposuction is performed through a tumescent technique, and may also include the assistance of ultrasound imaging or laser energy.

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Your doctor will make several tiny incisions and inject a local anesthetic into the area to help expand and firm the fat, making it easier to remove. The thin tube is then inserted through the incisions to suction out the fat. No stitches are needed after liposuction since the incisions are small enough to heal on their own.

In laser-assisted tumescent liposuction, a laser is used to liquefy the targeted fat before it is removed, allowing for an easier and less painful removal. The laser may also be used to tighten skin in the treated area after fat is removed. Similarly, ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat before it is removed for a smoother removal process.

After the liposuction procedure, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated area. Compression garments or elastic bandages may be used to help reduce these symptoms while the area heals. Patients can return to work and other regular activities as soon as they feel comfortable, which is usually after a few days. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.

3 Tricks to Keeping Your Summer Body in the Winter

The summer months may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still dreaming of a youthful toned shape. While we may have turned in our swimsuits for winter coats and scarves, it’s never too early to start prepping your figure for the next beach season – after all it is only six months away! Here are three tips and tricks to restoring a more youthful shape, and in-turn, a more positive outlook on your body.

COOLSCULPTING. CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles, and back fat. Say goodbye to rolls and hello to a smooth flat abdomen! Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. Your body will still flush out fat cells for up to six months after treatment! No, it’s not magic. It’s CoolSculpting!

LIPOSUCTION. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body. The fat from the targeted area is removed from the body to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. This procedure 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. Summer bikini here we come!

FACELIFT. Does the face you see in the mirror reflect who you are inside? Facial cosmetic surgery can give your face a more youthful look or improve the shape of features such as the nose, chin or ears. Facelifts counteract signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. After surgery, some patients look 10-15 years younger!
