Don’t Mom-Shame the Mommy Makeover

Don't Mom-Shame the Mommy Makeover

When I talk to potential mommy makeover patients, “mom-shaming” is one of the biggest hesitations they bring up around having plastic surgery. They worry naysayers across social media will discredit them for taking the “easy way out” when it comes to looking and feeling better after baby. What is mom-shaming? It occurs when people push the idea that getting back to a pre-baby body is simply a matter of dedication to diet and exercise with a focus on weight loss. The truth is, motherhood brings about certain changes to the body that can’t be fixed by even the strictest health … Continue reading »

Liposuction Isn’t a Shortcut–It’s a Motivator

A woman and man go on a jog to prepare for their liposuction procedures.

It’s only been a couple of months since New Year’s Day and, if you’re like many people, the commitment to keeping resolutions may be starting to fade. Exercising and leading a healthier lifestyle typically tops the to-do lists for most people, and most people need the motivation to maintain those changes. It may come as a surprise, but liposuction can be the motivation you need. Liposuction is the ideal treatment for women and men who have already shed several pounds or who are near their target weight but have trouble spots where fat persists and creates unwanted bulges. Liposuction isn’t a … Continue reading »

Facelifts: Why They’re Different for Men

Facelifts for Men

The idea that men have become more conscious about their appearance in the era of selfies, teleconferencing, and dating sites is well-documented. Even though men still make up a smaller percentage of plastic surgery patients than women, their numbers are on the rise. Men considering everything from BOTOX® injections to a facelift has simply become more common. The increase in men seeking plastic surgery means that surgeons must tailor their surgical techniques to address the unique challenges posed by the male face. Most men seek changes that won’t erase all of their wrinkles and lines. Retaining a face “with character” is a … Continue reading »

Take Those Nose Job Videos with a Grain of Salt

Take Those Nose Job Videos with a Grain of Salt

When you’re considering rhinoplasty in Albany, NY, online videos such as those on YouTube can be a great educational resource. In fact, I often create YouTube videos to inform viewers about the benefits and risks involved, the steps that occur in surgery, and what to expect during recovery. I do this to help people better understand the procedure they’re interested in and what they can anticipate from their results. Online videos can be a good starting point when you’re just beginning to think about having a procedure performed, even before you’ve met with a plastic surgeon. However, your research shouldn’t … Continue reading »

Breast Implants: How Much Research Should You Do?

Breast Implants: How Much Research Should You Do?

Patients considering breast implants at my Albany, NY, office often tell me similar things when they come in for their consultation. One of the most common things they reveal is that they’re overwhelmed by the amount of information available about breast augmentation. Perhaps more than any other plastic surgery procedure, breast augmentation comes with a wealth of options to select and decisions to make. Today’s breast implants are available in an astounding array of sizes, shapes, textures, and projections, making it tough for a layperson to narrow down their choices. But there’s good news: You really don’t have to make … Continue reading »

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 »
