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 »

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.
