Celebrities As a Reference for Plastic Surgery: What You Need to Know

Celebrity magazines

Angelina Jolie’s lips. Matt Bomer’s jawline. Kylie Jenner’s butt. They’re iconic, and we all know what they look like. Given that common point of reference, it’s no surprise that patients looking for a plastic surgeon in Albany, NY mention celebrities when they describe their ideal results. While this practice can be helpful (and is even recommended prior to scheduling a consultation for plastic surgery), it can be fraught with pitfalls if you are expecting to look just like your favorite pop culture icon. The Ivanka Trump Effect Perhaps the latest example of a celebrity look that plastic surgery patients in … Continue reading »

Why the “In-Person” Part of Your Consultation Matters

Dr. Rockmore greeting plastic surgery patient in Albany

If you’re seriously considering breast augmentation here in Albany, NY, you’ve probably already done quite a bit of research online. Between looking at before-and-after photos, reading testimonials, and familiarizing yourself with the details of the surgery, you may feel as if you know nearly everything there is to know about breast augmentation. But while you can learn a lot from the comfort of your laptop, there’s plenty about the surgery and your doctor that you can only know once you come in for an in-person consultation. The Implants The implants themselves are the stars of the surgery, and you can … Continue reading »

Brazilian Butt Lifts: Kylie Jenner’s Transformation

Back of celebrity

As a plastic surgeon, I know very well how a single celebrity’s decisions can set the trends in my practice for months or even years. Perhaps no celebrities illustrate that point more soundly than the Kardashians, the family of dark-haired beauties who are, you might say, “famous for being famous.” But whether it’s a butt lift or breast augmentation, my Albany, NY patients have shown me that the Kardashians’ preferences are often echoed here in my office. Consider Kylie Jenner, for example. The evolution of her body is something my patients talk about all the time during their consultations. Like … Continue reading »

Throughout the course of my work in plastic surgery, I have met so many wonderful patients from all over the Capital Region and beyond, and some of them have incredible transformations and wonderful stories that simply must be told. For example, when Thomas came to The Plastic Surgery Group looking to undergo Top surgery, I was excited for the opportunity to help complete his physical journey — so he could finally feel like his true self. Recently, I sat down with him to talk about his experience working with my team. Here’s what he had to say: Dr. Rockmore: How did … Continue reading »

Post-Baby Tummy Tuck: What You Should Consider

After having a child, many moms become dissatisfied with their “post-baby” body. When they decide to do something about it, such as a tummy tuck at my Albany, NY practice, they’ve already thoroughly researched the procedure online and arrive at their consultations prepared with questions. Why? Because moms are superwomen. It’s natural to have a lot of questions about something like surgery. I often field many questions about the procedure itself, such as where I make the incision, how long the operation lasts, and whether a patient will spend the night at a hospital or go home the day of … Continue reading »

It’s Never Too Early: A 2-Step Beginner’s Guide to Anti-Aging

Whoever came up with the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” might not have been specifically talking about wrinkles, but it certainly applies. People often think of anti-aging treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce wrinkles, but our Albany, NY, practice encourages starting an anti-aging regimen as early as possible. It’s natural to put off thinking about wrinkles and lines until we actually see them in the mirror, but preventive skin care is even more effective because it delays their initial appearance. Fortunately, you can help prevent the onset of future wrinkles and other skin … Continue reading »

4 Don’ts When Reviewing Breast Augmentation Before & After Photos

It would be an understatement to say that viewing before-and-after photos is a crucial part of the breast augmentation process. Just as important as viewing the results of actual Albany patients, however, is doing so with the right techniques in mind; there’s more to it than simply clicking through photos. To make the most of your time spent online, and as result, in your consultation, steer clear of the following “don’ts” when scrolling through real patient photo galleries: Don’t skip this step. Really. Again, we cannot stress the importance of this process enough. Think of it as your time to … Continue reading »

Tummy tuck frequently asked questions

Tummy tuck surgery is always a positive decision for my Albany patients, thanks to its ability to completely transform the body. But before committing to surgery, many prospective patients still have questions about the incision and the resulting scar — both major factors to consider when planning for the procedure.

Scarring is inevitable with any type of surgery, cosmetic procedures included. Scars are the natural result of the body healing itself, and even less-invasive surgeries … Continue reading »

There’s certainly no denying the product’s increasing popularity, amongst men and women alike.
