For Breast Reconstruction or Revision…Natrelle 410 Implants Will Keep Everyone Guessing!

Since Angelina Jolies public announcement, and Brad Pitt’s comments about her double breast mastectomy, removal of both breasts as a “preventive” measure against developing breast cancer…I’ve decided it’s a good time to discuss today’s most popular…most natural cohesive (gummy bear) breast implants.

Natrelle 410 Ultra Cohesive Breast Implants are the most popular in the world today…chosen 2:1 by women having breast reconstruction surgery (after cancer treatment and breast removal)…and by women having implant revision surgery.  The Natrelle 410 also has more “loyal” physician advocates than any other single breast implant in the world!

WITH NATRELLE’s 410 COHESIVE tear shaped BREAST IMPLANTS…YOU WILL ALWAYS KEEP THEM GUESSING!  shutterstock_45617737

The 410 Implant was the very first highly cohesive…anatomically shaped implants and they are now referred to as “gummy bears.”  They have been in use throughout Europe since 1993 with wonderful results.  Natrelle 410 offers 12 shapes for a given volume.  I love them…my patients love them… for many reasons!

  • Natrelle 410 Implants…mimic the natural breast the best
  • They are the implant of choice today for women having breast reconstruction surgery
  • For breast implant revision surgery…the Natrelle 410 is top choice over all implants
  • It’s “tear drop shape” contours resemble the curve of a woman’s breast
  • The highly cohesive gummy silicone filler “holds together” uniformly to prevent migration in the event of a rupture (rarely occurs according to years of studies)
  • 12 shapes for a given volume enables patient/surgeon to be very specific in shape selection…for every single patient
  • Natrelle 410’s are chosen 2:1 by patients because they feel the most natural….soft to the touch
  • It’s the #1 shaped gel implant chosen by surgeons in Europe and Canada…where it’s been available for years  (the FDA just approved it in the US in February, 2013)
  • The textured surface means it will stay where it is placed beneath the breast
  • The implant surgery requires specialized training and skill…I am one of a select group of surgeons currently allowed to offer the Natrelle 410 implants to patients.

Highly Developed Method…used for selecting the ideal implants for each individual patient….no cookie cutter methods here!  Also, incorporating my Vectra 3D Computer Imaging program empowers my patients to see actual potential results…before having surgery.

Hand in Glove Fit! Selecting the right implant is the first step to achieving your desired outcome…Second is “surgical technique and skill.”  Added years of specialized surgical training and years of great success and natural outcomes in reconstructive breast surgeries…have given my patients have the highest level of confidence in my abilities…strong enough to send their friends and loved ones to me also.

OK…been thinking about implant revision/replacement…or have you been through a mastectomy?  Let’s talk…

Spring Graduations, June Brides, New Mommies, Class Reunions, Career Changes, normal facial Aging is really showing…Beach Days are here…are you beach body ready? …and many more reasons to get that Breast Augmentation scheduled, to have a Mini Facelift, to keep them guessing with Botox treatments or have an “instant liquid facelift.”  Take 10 years off the face with an Eyebrow/Forehead Lift…removing years of aging with an Eye Job (Blepharoplasty) or a Nose Job…come on and let’s get to work.

MINI EYE PROCEDURES…defy aging, renew beauty, restore balance

The eyes are one of the first areas of the face where aging becomes highly visible.  The eye area has thin skin and fat deposits, that over time often get lost or displaced, while unwelcome dark circles, hollows and bags develop and become more visible.  This blog continues my short series on “mini procedures” what they are and why they’re here to stay.

If you’re new to my blogs see my website for comprehensive information on the many age defying/health restoring procedures I offer. HTTP://www.davinciplastic.com.

MINI EYELID LIFTS are among the top procedures requested today. They are called by different names such as:  Pinch Lift, Skin Pinch, Mini Eyelid Lift or Skin Pinch Blepharoplasty. Each surgeon has usually developed special techniques for their procedure of choice.

I do full blown eyelid surgeries (Blepharoplasties) and Mini Blepharoplasty procedures.  My mini eye signature procedure is the “Skin/Pinch Blepharoplasty.  This is a conservative eyelid tuck involving skin only and is ideal for patients who desire more space for applying eye shadow as well as a more defined upper eyelid crease.  My Mini Skin/Pinch Blepharoplasty takes about 1 hour: involves some swelling and bruising that resolves by itself over 5 to 7 days, and General Anesthesia is that of choice for this surgery.

Mini Skin Pinch Blepharoplasty surgery does the following:

  • Achieves a modest but natural refreshed look
  • Increases space for applying eye shadow
  • Beautifully, naturally defines the upper eyelid crease
  • Involves the least risks possible
  • Erases a tired look in the upper facial third
  • Refreshes, rejuvenates, renews youthfulness to the eye area

The Limitations include:  bags and eye hollows are not addressed since the fat and muscle is not transposed or eliminated…only extra skin is removed with this mini procedure and it may need future maintenance as many mini’s do.

Here’s a comparison of the “Mini” and “Traditional” Eyelid Surgery:

MINI BLEPHAROPLASTY:  Best for those with good skin elasticity and minimal wrinkling on and around the eyes…without under eyelid bags.  This takes about an hour, healing about 1 week, little to no bruising and less swelling than with traditional. Results last 3 to 10 years.   TRADITIONAL BLEPHAROPLASTY:  Best for those with heavy under eye bags and loose facial skin in the eye area.  Takes from 1 to 3 hours and is one of the easiest procedures from which to recover. Swelling and bruising lasts up to 10 days at which time you are about healed.  Results typically last from 8 to 15 years.

THE EYES ARE THE MOST COLORFUL AND ENGAGING FEATURE OF THE FACE.  THEY CREATE UNIQUENESS AND DEPTH or THEY CONVEY A TIRED, AGING APPEARANCE.    Steven Davison M.D.

ASIAN EYELIDS are unique and require special knowledge, training and skill.  Asian eyelids lack a crease, usually have extra skin or epicanthal web towards the side of the nose.  I have much experience and expertise in creating the ideal eyelid for those subtle needs.

MINI PROCEDURES ARE HERE TO STAY BECAUSE:  they are practical, they work well when started early enough, and often can prevent the need for full blown procedures/surgeries. A major reason also:  our patients have demanded them and we have researched and developed and refined them.

MINI PROCEDURES CAN BE COMBINED:  more often than not patients choose to combine two or more procedures to achieve “optimal results.”  For example:  Mini Skin Pinch Bleph surgery is popular with a Liquid Facelift using today’s miracle power lifters!  Check it out!

MOMMY MAKEOVERS and DADDY DO OVERS are here to stay too!  Let’s talk about your concerns soon!

Best to you and Yours,

SLEEPING BEAUTY a Twilight Sleep for Painless Botox®, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and much more!

SLEEPING BEAUTY 

You go to sleep relaxed and comfortable and wake up Beautiful!      422034_361059640591795_1455869254_n

Many of my patients love the many age-defying procedures I can offer them today, and even though Nora and I are specially trained and certified expert injectors, there is still some discomfort with an injection, period!  My patients hate the discomfort that goes along with many of the treatments I offer, such as Juvederm, Botox, Sculptra and Radiesse injectables. There is a remedy for this too…read on.

SLEEPING BEAUTY offers TOTAL COMFORT, TOTAL RELAXATION

I began offering “sleeping beauty” twilight sleep option to my patients a few years ago.  It means you are totally relaxed and comfortable during your entire procedure.

TWILIGHT SLEEP is safe, simple, painless and relaxing!

 Performed in our accredited Operating Room, Twilight sleep, or light sedation, involves an IV in the back of the hand, which puts you into a relaxed state, without the risks associated with general anesthesia.  This allows for a faster recovery since you breathe on your own during the procedure, and you can wake up quickly without that “hung over” feeling. When you wake up, like Sleeping Beauty in the Fairy Tale story…you really do feel rejuvenated and beautiful!

SLEEPING BEAUTY is THE SEDATION OF CHOICE TODAY!

Now that it’s been used for a few years and is tried and proven safe and effective,  Sleeping Beauty sedation is the sedation of choice today and is used not only for injections, but for other simple cosmetic procedures as well.  Be sure to request it for your next treatment.

ANTI AGING… A PRIMARY CONCERN of GENERATION Y  shutterstock_80224243-1

It’s true, women in the United States aged 25-34 are now beginning to pay more attention to the signs of aging.  They are also actively looking for treatments and products to effectively address their concerns.  Results tell us that 39% of these women understand the importance of starting anti aging treatments early and they are doing so.  They are concerned with skin health such as spots and blotches, oily skin, dry skin and ways to correct these issues.  They also don’t like the early signs of lines and wrinkles and seek ways to prevent them.  Overall,  Gen Y women want to combat aging and are willing to start sooner rather than later.  They are seekers…we have remedies!  Generation Y men are close behind and feel cosmetic procedures are part of their normal health routine and job security.

FILLERS and INJECTABLES AMONG THE TOP ANTI AGING TREATMENTS TODAY

They offer quick results with minimal downtime.  Here’s how we use them:

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen stimulators for…cheeks, temples and jawline
  • Hyaluronic acid and fat injections to correct nasolabial folds
  • Hyaluronic acid to plump the lips and restore their youthful shape and beauty
  • Neurotoxins (Botox etc) to tone down muscle activity that creates lines/wrinkles
  • Injectable fillers as wrinkle plumpers for a “liquid facelift” and natural looking results
  • Collagen stimulators (Radiesse and Sculptra) to restore long lasting volume and fullness  (often done in combo in fillers)
  • Understanding the complex facial anatomy is key to knowing what to use, how much to use and where to use it.  At DAVinci we are highly skilled and specially trained as expert injectors.   The results are beautiful!

At DAVinci, our main concern is what concerns you!  Come in and let’s chat so we can help you look and feel your very best!  You will be ready for the Holidays if you start now.

Best to you and yours,

CAREERS & COSMETICS

DOES LOOKING BETTER REALLY HELP YOU GET THAT JOB? This is always a sensitive subject, especially in these economic times, but if you believe “the truth can set you free” (and I do) then this information should be helpful to many people.

If youth equals beauty – then beauty in turn equals money. 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 lift years off the face and neck.

Why is this happening during an economic downturn? Because they have to look good (younger) in order to compete in the job market place.  Here are the numbers:

  • 2009-2010…cosmetic procedures rose more than 5%
  • Facelifts for men were up 14% in 2010
  • Non-Invasive procedures rose more than 12%
  • England & Ireland (in spite of their economic woes) saw an increase among women having Botox® – by more than 50%
  • 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.”

Ageism shouldn’t be an issue…but sadly it is!  That’s the bad news. The Good News is:  cosmetic procedures work very well & are here to stay.  There’s something for everyone –and age is not an issue in this arena.  You can look good at any age – in spite of your age.

I offer all the fast fixes – liquid facelifts, dermal fillers, BOTOX® and Dysport®.  For long lasting results with the most bang for your buck  – facelifts often combined with eye procedures really get the most desirable results by taking 5, 10 even 15 years off the face and neck and keeping you younger looking…always.

Starting younger and maintaining works the best…we’ve learned this from Hollywood celebrities, many of whom seem to be ageless!

You really can’t put a price on beauty-but you can put a price on age defying procedures.  Visit my website for complete info on what I do.

If you are being challenged in the workplace – or are starting over again – like so many are, I can help you look and feel more competitive.  Renewed self-confidence and enhanced self-esteem also result from looking great.

I help people put their best selves forward!

Let’s talk.
