Restylane and Perlane

Restylane and Perlane | Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery | Scoop.it

Radiesse injections can enhance your appearance and lessen facial folds on your face. Continue reading to learn more about Restylane and Perlane injections. 

Allison Goodlin's insight:

Restylane is perfect for the sensitive lower eyelid area and lip edge. For other areas of the face, there is abundant fat to help hide filler. In areas like the cheek, chin, nasolabial fold firmness of the material to resist dissipation is important for volumizing. Perlane is perfect for this role. Should there be an overfill issue after a treatment, both products can be adjusted with an enzyme called hyaluronidase that can be injected and softens the unwanted fullness.

Say Goodbye to Spots and Hyperpigmentation We all want even skin tone, but hyperpigmentation is very common in people from fair to dark skin. We call the spots of hyperpigmentation a variety of names – discoloration, dark spots, brown spots, … Continue reading →
Allison Goodlin's insight:

Melanin gives your skin its natural color. But sometimes melanin can distribute unevenly, causing dark spots and discoloration – or hyperpigmentation.

Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can be diffuse or focal, affecting such areas as the face and the back of the hands. 

Luckily, there are a number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can improve these spots immensely. Many of these advanced procedures also simultaneously address other issues, such as rough skin and enlarged pores.

Daylift - Less-Invasive Facelift Technique | Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery | Scoop.it

Allison Goodlin's insight:

The DayLift is a revolutionary less-invasive technique designed to improve sagging cheeks and jowls. It may remove years from one’s appearance during a single, one-hour procedure. The DayLift is a true lift that supports the skin, connective tissue, and muscles instead of only tightening the facial skin. The DayLift provides natural-appearing results with less bruising and swelling than more extensive procedures. General Anesthesia is not needed and most patients return to light activities much sooner than with a full-lower facelift.
Although the results can sometimes be dramatic, the DayLift cannot produce the results of a more extensive facelift. It cannot remove asymmetries, wrinkles, or stop the aging process.It cannot improve an extensively sagging or fatty neck.

Liposuction vs Abdominoplasty

Liposuction vs Abdominoplasty | Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery | Scoop.it
Liposuction or Tummy Tuck, what determines which option is best for a given patient? While both procedures are excellent options for patients seeking body contouring, each has its own benefits and limitations.
Allison Goodlin's insight:

Before the invention of liposuction, a tummy tuck was the only surgical method for removing excessive abdominal fat. In many patients (but not all) liposuction of the abdomen can often provide equivalent or better results than a tummy tuck. Because liposuction is safer and causes less scarring compared to tummy tucks, abdominal liposuction is now far more common than are tummy tucks.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia, and involves liposuction and excision to remove fat, plus a large excision of skin. The typical result is usually a flatter tummy with a large scar extending from the pubic area to the lower abdomen to anterior hips. Because the surgeon can directly visualize the muscles of the anterior abdominal wall during a tummy tuck, lax abdominal muscles can be surgically tightened during a tummy tuck procedure.

Fat Transfer can Help you Restore Facial Volume and Eliminate Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fat Transfer can Help you Restore Facial Volume and Eliminate Fine Lines and Wrinkles | Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery | Scoop.it

Fat transfer can restore facial volume by filling in cheeks so that they appear lifted and eliminating wrinkles by filling in the indentations or depression in the skin. Facial fat transfer will also create a foundation for other filler treatments to the lips, eyelids and nasolabial folds.

Allison Goodlin's insight:

Fat transfer uses fat from your own body to fill in lines and wrinkles on your face. The goal is to achieve skin that has more youthful volume and is smoother with a dramatic reduction in wrinkles. Aging is most frequently caused by a loss of fat and “volume” in the face. If you have facial wrinkles, thin lips, sunken cheeks, or skin depressions, you may be a good candidate for fat transfer.
