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.

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 »

A mommy makeover at my Albany, NY, practice can be a transformative procedure that truly changes your life after you have children.

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.

5 Reasons to Call Your Doctor’s Office After Breast Surgery

In a previous post, I discussed the process of undergoing breast augmentation, covering everything from choosing breast implants to recovery.
