Your Guide to Your Best-Looking Lips with Fillers

Your Guide to Your Best Looking Lips with Fillers

The “natural look” is trending at cosmetic practices across the nation. From breast augmentation patients choosing smaller implants to the “Meghan Markle effect” that’s inspiring women to use less makeup, it appears “natural beauty” is everyone’s favorite aesthetic ideal at the moment. And Kylie Jenner’s thinner lips may be the most convincing evidence that the “overdone” look is out. Jenner’s famously plump pout spurred the popularity of lip injections, but patients at my Albany, NY practice are now seeking subtler enhancements. From my perspective, I have always strived to create results that look natural while still meeting the patient’s cosmetic … Continue reading »

Life After Weight Loss: What Are Your Surgical Options?

Life After Weight Loss: What Are Your Surgical Options?

However you get there — bariatric surgery, diet and exercise, or both — a significant weight loss is an accomplishment worth celebrating. But for some, lingering loose skin can mar their results and conceal the new bodies they’ve worked hard to get. This lax skin doesn’t respond to topical products or extra workouts. Instead, the best option is surgical removal. At my Albany plastic surgery practice, I find post-weight-loss surgery cases to be among the most satisfying for me professionally. Seeing my patients finally get the bodies they’ve spent years working toward reminds me just how life-changing plastic surgery can … Continue reading »

There are plenty of options available for people who want to improve the appearance of their midsections.

In this case, liposuction or a tummy tuck at our Albany, NY, plastic surgery center can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. The first step is finding out which procedure—or maybe a combination of the 2—is right for you. Tummy Tuck Candidates Good candidates for a tummy tuck should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for their results. It’s important to remember … Continue reading »

4 Reasons to Consider a Breast Lift

4 Reasons to Consider a Breast Lift

Women often come to my practice with concerns about breast sagging. Do not feel alone if you have this issue. Most, if not all, women experience some droopiness to a certain extent as they age. This breast sagging can be caused by loss of breast volume, pregnancy, weight loss, and genetics. Fortunately, a breast lift at my Albany practice can be an effective option for women who want to restore a more youthful breast contour. Loss of Breast Volume As women age, breasts often lose volume. This is due to changes in your reproductive hormone levels that happen throughout the … Continue reading »

The Truth About Mommy Makeovers

A mommy makeover at my Albany, NY, practice can be a transformative procedure that truly changes your life after you have children. Though catchy, the name “mommy makeover” doesn’t give much information about the procedure. Because of this, people can be easily misinformed about the surgery. Let’s clear up some of these misconceptions. Myth #1: A mommy makeover is just a tummy tuck. Truth: A mommy makeover is more than just a tummy tuck. It typically includes breast enhancement—augmentation, lift, or both, or a reduction. Additionally, it combines 1 or more body contouring procedures like tummy tuck and/or liposuction. One … Continue reading »

A Guide to Tummy Tuck and Tattoos

Tattoos are no longer reserved for bikers and rock stars. They’ve become popular for everyone, from stay-at-home-moms to urban professions. Because so many of my patients have tattoos, I thought it would be fitting to talk about tummy tuck surgery at my Albany, NY practice and what happens to tattoos during the procedure. Depending on the placement of the tattoo, it could end up distorted or partially (or even completely) removed. If you are undergoing a mini tummy tuck, only the lower belly will be altered and tightened. However, the upper abdomen is not significantly affected by the surgery. If you opt … Continue reading »

The Weekend Lift: What’s in a Name?

Patients often want the results of a facelift at my Albany, NY, practice without undergoing a traditional facelift procedure. They hear the name “weekend facelift,” also called a mini facelift, and think it’s a quick and easy solution to all signs of facial aging. Unfortunately, this is a common misconception. I’ll use this post to distinguish the different types of facelift procedures. Traditional Facelift Candidates Most people in good overall health are good facelift candidates. Any health conditions that make it more difficult to heal are the primary concern. A traditional facelift corrects signs of aging in the middle and … Continue reading »

Your Surgeon’s Qualifications Matter. Here’s Why.

In this post, I would like to highlight why it’s so important to ensure that your surgeon is qualified to perform the procedures that he or she is offering. I like to focus on my qualifications so that I can help my Albany plastic surgery patients feel confident about their elected procedure. When choosing a surgeon, you’ll want to make sure that he or she is board-certified. I am certified by both The American Board of Plastic Surgery and The American Board of Surgery.
