Hot Cosmetic Procedures for 2015!

COSMETIC and PLASTIC SURGERY TRENDS FOR 2015  Couples are having surgery together...

Some of the hottest procedures of 2014 will continue to grow this year, but there are some new predictions about what will be “in” for 2015. Last year buttock augmentation and neck rejuvenation showed some of the greatest increases. So what is in store for this year? Read on to learn about the trends for 2015.

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM… Increasing over 50% in previous years, the popularity of the buttock augmentation will continue to grow. The safest way to improve shape and volume with a buttocks augmentation is from using your own excess body fat. Fat grafting is rising in popularity, but it’s very important to choose a surgeon such as myself, who understands the art of body sculpting and has the surgical skill to achieve each individual’s desired result.

Also, the neck lift and neck liposuction will continue to grow, as people realize that no matter how smooth and wrinkle free the face is, a droopy neck and jowl is a sure tell tale sign of age. Depending on the specific concern about the neck, there are a variety of techniques to smooth, lift and thin out this area and restore a youthful, elegant neck profile.

MORE FOR MEN… Men aren’t missing out on the opportunities that come from looking young and healthy. They are looking for more kinds of procedures ranging from non invasive to plastic surgery. Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) has risen as have facial procedures. Men tend to prefer “in and out” procedures that don’t keep them from productivity, especially line smoothing injectables like Botox, so much that Botox for men has been nicknamed “Brotox.”

DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE MOMS… After sacrificing their body to grow and nurse the miracle of a baby, moms deserve to feel good about themselves. This has led to an increase in Mommy Makeover procedures to help them return to their pre pregnancy body. Mommy Makeovers can restore confidence, the feeling of body normalcy and beauty. This can mean different things for everyone, but usually includes a combination of procedures like a tummy tuck to tighten the stretched out abdomen muscles, liposuction to address baby weight that just won’t go away, and breast augmentation to create a more harmonious upper body.

FILLING IN THE FACE…The effect of volume loss on an aging face is becoming more and more understood by the general population. Facial contouring to restore volume can make a subtle yet significant difference in the youthful appearance. Fillers like Voluma XC are perfect for cheek augmentation that can provide a slight lift to the entire face, even decreasing the appearance of marionette lines.

LUSCIOUS LIPS… This popular treatment will likely remain a top request for 2015. Although, the trend is changing so that more and more requests are for a natural looking fullness rather than the over filled lumpy lips of years past. This more natural lip look can be achieved with (lip augmentation) involving the judicious injection of hyaluronic acid fillers like JuvedermDo this now to look fabulous for Valentine’s Day.

What will your new look be in this new year? If you’d like to discuss any of these popular procedures for 2015 or another more personalized need, please schedule a consultation with me. Visit www.davinciplastic.com.

ZONING in on BODY SCULPTING and ABS YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED!

BODY SCULPTING is one of the “top” most requested procedures. Patients want surgeons to redefine, refine, reshape and contour their bodies to be more aesthetically pleasing.  Call it lipoplasty, suction lipectomy, liposculpting, body sculpting or contouring, it is safer and more effective than ever using today’s advanced, refined technology and an experienced surgeon.

WHO GETS BODY SCULPTING?  Men and women who are tired of bulges that won’t budge are having their bodies refined and reshaped!  One main reason are those annoying, frustrating bulges that limit clothing options and preventing the fit and trim body of your dreams!

BODY SCULPTING is an ideal complimentary surgical technique to various others like facelifts to body lifts.  It is the most common method of body sculpting used because it works so very well and we can now target both very large and very localized, hard to reach areas.  Liposuction is the Gold Standard for body sculpting, it is refined and here to stay.

ZONING IN ON the BODY   Common target areas include: the abdomen and hips, breasts, thighs, back, bra line, face, neck and chin and buttocks.  Men and women of all ages and stages target these areas, but Gen Xer’s and Millennials are especially into body cosmetics for health and career reasons as well as to retain more youthfulness throughout their aging process.  Mature Adults (many couples) are redefining their bodies in order to age more beautifully/handsomely.

BEACH BODIES …if you want one you must start now.  Tummy Tuck is in high demand this time of year so women (new mommies and grand mommies) can look their best and feel great about looking great!  Men, if you want the “six packs”…let’s do it now.

ABDOMINOPLASTY (Tummy Tuck) is the “Gold Standard” for rejuvenating the abdomen.  It is the surgery of choice for men and women who want to be rid of excess fat and bulging abdominal skin.  So Tummy Tuck is done to restore proper firmness and contour to the abdomen. Abdominoplasty eliminates unsightly bulges and restores fitness and health to your tummy. Look at the benefits:

·      Tummy Tuck removes excess bulging fat and sagging skin

·      Tightens relaxed ab muscles

·      Results in a smoother, flatter, abdomen

·      Often relieves back back/discomfort

·      Involves liposuction for fat removal and sculpting the abs

·      Can be a Full Abdomino, a Mini, a Marriage Abdominoplasty

·      Often combined with other body refining/sculpting procedures

·      Abdominoplasty is recommended when lipo sculpting alone is not enough

Abdominoplasty is just one example of a surgical method of body refining, contouring, reshaping that is part of the overall “body sculpting” process.  Others are listed above.  See my website for info on Tummy Tuck: www.davinciplastic.com.

TANNING BEDS….ARE IRREFUTEABLY DANGEROUS!   The AADA (American Academy of Dermatology) has encouraged the FDA to ban indoor tanning devices because they emit ultraviolet radiation proven to cause skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.  The science results are in, the numbers don’t lie and girls as young as 15 are presenting in doctor’s offices with skin cancers.  These girls all use tanning devices.

Hope you and your loved ones are healthy, happy and putting your best self forward!

Makeovers for Men

IN 2009-2010 facelifts alone for men increased 14%

Men of all ages and walks of life are having plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons…to look younger, healthier, slimmer/trimmer and to boost self esteem.  Today’s society places a high value on looking young and fit.  The economy is placing demands on today’s career male population that was unheard of ten years ago.  Today, employers and recruiters are telling clients to spend as much money on looking good as they spent on perfecting their resume’ and career path.

Recent research data shows that people in the work force, and those trying to re enter the career arena, are stampeding cosmetic clinics like mine, for a host of procedures that will take years off the face and neck and sculpt the body.  Youth equals beauty…beauty equals promotion and bigger paychecks. Here are the numbers:

  • 2009-2010…all cosmetic procedures rose more than 5%
  • Facelifts for men were up 14% in 2010
  • Non-Invasive procedures rose more than 12%
  • Career counselors are telling clients to:  spend at least as much $$ on looking good as they spent on perfecting their resume
  • Career counselors are saying it plainly – “Don’t look old.”

COSMETIC PROCEDURES MEN WANT TODAY I’m creating personalized treatment plans for lots of men today (even retired men) who want and feel they need to look younger and healthier in order to compete in their careers.  They request the following most often:

  • Botox Injections to erase lines and wrinkles (facial, hands etc)
  • Filler Injections to plump up areas of lost volume and stimulate collagen renewal
  • Skin Resurfacing to correct skin irregularities…lines, wrinkles, spots, pigmentation, etc.
  • Facelift/Necklift with Liposuction restores youthful look by lifting away 5, 10, 15 years of an aged look
  • Chin Implants to restore a solid, balanced chin to match other facial features…and more masculine look!

Men’s Makeovers and Daddy Do Overs…Are Here to Stay.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all of you Fathers everywhere!  

June 17, 2012 millions of families will celebrate Father’s Day…a day set aside to honor father’s everywhere.  I too am a happy dad and understand what goes into being a parent and a dad.  That said…Enjoy everyday!

Daddy Do Overs make a terrific gift for that terrific guy.  

Career Trends Have Changed…Baby Boomers Opt for Cosmetic Procedures

Trends change and the Baby Boomers have ushered in a new era of positive advancements in all arenas.  Anti Aging Aesthetic surgical and non surgical procedures are now “the norm” among this generation.  With younger executives like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page…gray hair is out…health, fitness and looking young is imperative especially in a competitive career field.

Last year (2011) men in the USA alone, had over 800,000 anti aging procedures done to combat flabby/washboard mid sections, to straighten crooked noses they were tired of living with, to reducing flabby breasts leaving a “hot daddy chest.”  And many other age defying options were chosen including:

  • Botox
  • Rhinoplasty (Nose Jobs)
  • Eyelid Lifts/Reduction (Blepharoplasty)
  • Facelifts/Necklifts (remove jowls, restore a chisel chin and tighten the neckline)
  • Liposuction…used on many body areas to remove excess fat and to sculpt that area
  • Fillers….injectables to fill in hollows & make you look 10 years younger instantly
  • Lasers…for a myriad of restorative & rejuvenative treatments…lines, wrinkles, age spots, scars, fat, discoloration and much more.

A YOUTHFUL LOOK BRINGS A SENSE OF INGENUITY, FRESHNESS AND ENERGY … the boardroom experts have made this statement loud & clear.

What Men Want in Treatments:

Men want the treatments listed above but they want them to be the least invasive, easy, simple, using little or no anesthesia and offering quick results.  NO Fuss!

Daddy Do Overs…Executive Makeovers are nearly always combined treatments to give you optimal, little or no downtime, fast results. Men and women today are not being quiet about having aesthetic procedures.

Advanced Methods, Refined Instruments, No Downtime…simple, quick, youthful…

One used to go into seclusion for a month after a facelift, or liposuction or a Rhinoplasty surgery, but today our methods are so advanced  and the instruments so refined, that precision coupled with skill, yields beautiful results that people don’t need to hide until healed.  In fact, many procedures involve “subtle” changes that remove years from the face and body but are so minimally invasive people really don’t notice.  They just think you look more rested or have changed your diet or you are drinking more water and less coffee… or something.

Couples are growing younger together today!  So, if you’ve been thinking about making some changes but don’t want to go it along…bring your wife along!  Let’s do a “Couples Do Over.”

Bottom Line for Men…you have many options to fight the signs of aging…to look as good as you still feel. Come on in and let’s design your own personal treatment plan.  We’ll have you looking great in no time flat.

I keep Men and Women looking, feeling and being healthy and more youthful.

At DAVinci…I combine the supreme elements of art and surgical science.

The Trend …Gynecomastia surgery is the Ideal solution for many men!

I’ve written several articles this year about men and cosmetic procedures…because men want the information, they appreciate the education and, they love the results they get from each procedure. The trend is that men are having more cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of every type, every year. Male Gynecomastia surgery is done to reduce the size of male breasts (same as breast reduction in women) for various other reasons.  I perform many of these operations every year to help my male patients regain self esteem, get renewed confidence and a new “physique” they can show off without embarrassment.

DATA:  40% to 60% of all men are affected with enlarged women like breasts

  • Male Breast reduction is ideal for men who are self conscious about their condition
  • Gynecomastia usually begins during adolescence & continues for life if not corrected
  • It psychologically impacts men of all ages…starting in the early teen years
  • Causes of large male breasts include:  obesity, Klinefelter’s Syndrome, Gilbert’s Syndrome, normal aging, hormone fluctuations, RX medications, anabolic steroids, impaired liver function

Male Breast Reduction Surgery… Results in a chest that is flatter, firmer, more contoured. Men and boys who suffer with Gynecomastia have found this surgery to be the ideal solution to their problem.  1) Male breast reduction is typically an outpatient surgery performed under general or local anesthesia. 2) I work through one small incision to  and remove excess fat and skin and to sculpt the breast to a masculine appearance. 3) My advanced techniques/skills and experience results in inconspicuous scars. 4) As with any operation, there is some swelling, bruising and discomfort for 2 to 3 days.   Oral pain medication manages this nicely. 5) Final results are seen when all swelling has resolved…usually 2 to 3 months.

Questions Men Ask Most Often:  See my website for info: http://www.DAVinciplastic.com

How much work will I miss?   My patients report back to work in 1 to 2 days.  Choose a long weekend for your procedure.

Will Activities be Restricted?   Yes.  No sex for 1 to 2 weeks following your surgery and no heavy, strenuous exercise for about 3 weeks.    Will Male Breast Reduction surgery change my looks?  NO.  You will look like yourself…just more fit, trim and contoured!

Will Male Breast Reduction negatively affect my sexual activity?  NO…in fact…men report to me it really enhances it due to their renewed self esteem and pumped self confidence!

OK. This gives you a good overview.  Come in soon and let’s talk.
