How to Avoid Dry Winter Skin

The Cold, dry weather during winter months can really cause irritation, discomfort… and can age the skin if proper care isn’t taken. You invest in your skin with cosmetic surgery and non invasive procedures, so it is important to take extra care of your skin, when the weather is extreme, to help those age defying effects last. The following tips can help:

Conserve Moisture
There are many habits that can strip out the moisture from your skin. This dryness can be painful, itchy and contributes to skin-aging by stripping moisture. Work on replenishing lost moisture using these few simple steps:

AVOID
1) Taking hot showers or baths because this removes the natural lubrication and oil on the skin. Yes, hot showers feel good after coming in from the cold…but try to keep showers short and not too hot.
2)  Cleansers and toners, often contain harsh ingredients that strips your skin of natural oil. Real sudsy cleansers usually have a surfactant like sodium laurel sulfate – and the acetone in many toners can be too harsh along with already dry conditions. DO – Use mild cream or gel cleansers and toner with no alcohol this time of year.
3)  Sipping hot coffee and tea is so comforting when it’s cold out, but beware the dehydrating effects they can have. Most people only think to drink lots of water when they’re sweating and hot, but cold, windy air can can be just as dehydrating for your skin. So, drink lots of pure water everyday!

Moisture Reinforcement
Avoid certain drying habits, and be on the offense to add the extra help your skin needs this time of year.

Here are some ways to add moisture to your skin:
Running the heat in a home strips the air of any moisture – counter this by adding a little water vapor back to your home’s air with a humidifier.
Diligently use moisturizer morning and night. Never miss moisturizing your face and hands since they’re exposed to the elements the most, but don’t neglect the rest of your body.
Exfoliate gently to remove the dull dead skin that builds up

moisturize that fresh new skin to keep it healthy and glowing.
Continue using sunscreen. Snow can actually reflect up to 80 percent UV rays. you can skill get a sunburn in the winter.
Eat foods that encourage your skin to retain and build healthy moisture – e.g. rich in essential fatty acids like salmon and  “healthy fats” found in avocados and coconut oil.

Use medical grade SkinMedica, to effectively address many skin issues  Stop by our office or visit our website www.davinciplastic.com to learn more.

HAPPY NEW YEAR – HOW TO LOOK GREAT in those PHOTOS!

There will be lots of picture taking at lots of social events and they will most likely end up on “social media.”  So….we all want to put our “best face forward” for those poses.  I offer a brief, few tips for great photos:

  1. The Perfect Pout – this requires bright pearly white teeth and “plush lips.”  Juvederm is the most popular way to get that perfect pout with well shaped, lush lips.  Let’s talk soon!
  2. Eyes Youthful and Bright… You’ve heard it said that you should smile with your eyes.  And if you’ve got some crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, you can take years off your eyes with a little BOTOX.
  3. Your forehead is part of your “T zone” and can often look shiny in pictures. Remember to always apply a light dusting of translucent powder to keep away the shine.
  4. Do Away with the Double Chin…
One of the most common picture blunders.
    Use injectables like VOLUMA to restore volume and contour to the chin area.
  5. You can also trick the camera into slimming down your face …  slightly tilt your head down and angle your chin out just a little bit. This gives the perception of a sharper jaw line and higher cheekbones.

6.  The Three “P’s” of Pictures: Position, Posture and Pose…
Position yourself in the middle of a group photo. The people on the end always look bigger.
Good posture makes you look thinner and your stomach flatter. Simply stand up straight, lengthen your neck, roll your shoulders back, and lift up your chest. Pose in a natural, slimming position by resting your weight on one leg. Rest your hand on the hip with shoulder and elbow pointed back or allow your hands to fall naturally at your side while slightly lifting your elbow back and away from your body.

Looking forward to an outstanding 2017….Best Wishes to You and Yours!

Injectables for Subtle Facial Youthfulness

Using fillers to rejuvenate the lips, cheeks and creases around the mouth.is common.  These are very prominent and important areas for a youthful appearance, but fillers for more subtle places can make a big difference in your face, too. A little filler in some of the inconspicuous places, such as the ear earlobes, temples and chin can make a slight subtle change that can improve  your overall appearance.  Here are three of those areas:

Earlobes
Earlobes are definitely not the first body part that comes to mind when thinking of ways to restore  youthfulness, but the earlobes show signs of aging just like the face and neck. Gravity and many years of wearing heavier earrings are the main aggravators of earlobe aging. It is important not to forget these little pieces of cartilage when getting treatments for your face. Thin, droopy, and even wrinkly earlobes look out of place when the face is smooth, full, and firm.

Fortunately earlobe support can be added with the plumping achieved by injectable fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane or Radiesse. This Fillers can also help a stretched out earring hole appear smaller. Botox can smooth out wrinkles and Sculptra corrects volume loss gradually but steadily. So, with immediate results and no recovery time, you can enjoy your earrings and this subtle youthful enhancement right away.

Temples
The area outside of each eye between the top of the cheekbone and the brow bone is the region called the temple. The hollowing of the temples due to volume loss can contribute to a tired, weary appearance. This is definitely one of those areas where a filler makes a subtle yet significant difference in highlighting the eyes and eliminating shadows for a rejuvenated face. Radiesse, Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane can all be options depending on the your face and desired results.

Chin
A well defined chin helps shape the face. It adds balance to the other facial features, and helps define the jawline and neck. A chin augmentation with injectable fillers is an excellent way to optimize the tightened, contour that the chin adds to the face. It can also correct an underprojected chin that you were born with or volume loss caused by normal aging.

We can restore a youthful appearance to the face and …while people notice an improvement… but can’t put their finger on what was done. If you’ve had other treatments and still feel like you dot have that look – that you need a little something more, come in for a consultation so we can decide if one of these subtle changes can make that difference for you… visit www.DAVinciplasticsurgery.com.

Put Your Best Face Forward Now…

Injectable Fillers are the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the US today. You may see them advertised as Liquid FaceLifts, Fillers FaceLifts or a title coined by a surgeon including his name. No matter, they all have a few things in common:
– they are non surgical
– no downtime is required
– they promise a more youthful appearance – absent lines and wrinkles
– they are injected under the skin to plump up and re-contour sagging skin

BOTOX – of course is a name everyone recognizes today and it is the most well known of all the fillers. It is the lead product with many uses of its own but is also used in combination with other fillers for more desirable, long lasting results.

A Brief Primer on Fillers:

JUVEDERM – is made from hyaluronic acid. HA (for short) is a natural body substance that attracts and retains 1,000 times its own weight in moisture. When injected under the skin it also binds with collagen and elastin thus transporting essential nutrients to the treatment area while plumping up and recontouring. It is not derived from animal sources.
Juvederm is effective in treating moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles.

RESTYLANE – is also made from hyaluronic acid (HA) and works well to correct moderate lines and wrinkles. It’s commonly used with Botox to enhance your desired results.

PERLANE – comes from the makers of Restylane but is a modified option using larger gel particles that are more effective in filling those deeper folds by increasing facial volume. Perlane is a top choice for “lip augmentation.”
SCULPTRA – was formulated specifically as a treatment option for facial lipoatrophy. Lipoatrophy is a condition that causes sunken cheeks, indentations and hollow eyes. Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid and does not migrate or causes damage to surrounding tissues. Visible results from Sculptra injections appear gradually over a few months and from three to five treatments are needed for these results.

AUTOLOGOUS FAT – is one of my favorite filler options. This method uses your own body fat to treat lines, wrinkles, fat loss etc. in many body areas. Because we are using your own natural body fat – the risk of reaction and/or rejection is rare. It is reabsorbed by the body over time, so repeat treatments are needed for maintenance…but over time the body rallies and self corrects to make treatments longer lasting and more effective. Results also look so natural.
Are you ready to “put your best face forward” going into this Spring and Summer. Get started now to look refreshed, rested and more youthful.

Daddy Do-Overs

Men, you don’t want the ladies getting all the good looks, do you? The stigma of cosmetic procedures being just for the women was thrown out the window long ago. While the mommies are coming in for their makeovers, daddy should get a “do over”, too. Men are taking charge of their looks by getting rejuvenating treatments and procedures as part of their health, confidence and career maintaining/building regimen.

COSMETIC SURGERY CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS WORKPLACE SUCCESS…Everyone is noticing the difference that a youthful, energetic, healthy appearance makes when it comes to perception and promotion at the office and with clients. As you get to the top of the corporate ladder the pressure is even greater to “look the part.” Good looks are expected if the executive role requires any public exposure. Companies want to look good in part by being represented by people who look good.

With all the expectations at home and the office, dads can take the pressure off themselves and allow us to virtually turn back years from their face and body. These are some of the top requested daddy do over procedures:

RHINOPLASTY surgery of the nose is aimed to reestablish symmetry and unity within your unique face. At the hands of a skilled surgeon, it can:
repair and correct previous surgical problems, such as displaced implants or cartilage grafts
improve breathing issues from nasal passage blockages (maybe due to a broken nose from roughhousing as a youth),
remove unwanted bumps, asymmetries, depressions, etc.
refine the inadequate nose tip projection (e.g. age related droopy tips) or by slimming and narrowing any disproportionate aspect of the nose.

Achieve a well sculpted neck and chin using:
1. CHIN AUGMENTATION with Implants or Injectable Fillers that are tailored to your specific needs and goals. Whether your desire is for a more rugged, stronger chin, or to achieve facial Achbalance, this can restore a natural, more youthful appearance.

And don’t forget that you can say goodbye to that double chin by removing that unwelcome pocket of fat with LIPOSUCTION.

2. ABDOMINOPLASTY/BODY SCULPTING can help take off those years of sympathy weight gained while mommy gained pregnancy weight, and from choosing family time instead of gym time. Tummy tucks eliminate the bulge with liposuction, but also excess skin that has been stretched out. ABDOMINOPLASTY is the surgery of choice for men who want to rejuvenate the abs. These are some of the aesthetic and physical benefits of a Sculpting Tummy Tuck:
restores desired firmness and contour to the abdomen
Tightens relaxed ab muscles
Results in a smoother, flatter, abdomen
Sculpted “six pack” can be added

And don’t forget about those quick in and out treatments with BOTOX (Brotox) and hyaluronic acid fillers like RESTYLANE, JUVEDERM and PERLANE that can instantly get rid of those forehead and frown lines and contour the face. So dads, let’s talk about how you can take control of your image to accomplish a younger, healthier look with your Daddy Do Over.

Best to You and Yours,

The Perfect Profile

Since I addressed the youthful contour of the neck the past two weeks, I thought we’d work our way up to the chin and the important role it plays in attaining the “perfect profile.” Generally speaking, our society appreciates different features in men and women, but an aesthetic profile… regardless of gender… is harmonious and balanced.

These profile characteristics are popular among Americans:
• Upper face: a forehead that isn’t entirely round, flat or elongated, and a browbone structure that isn’t overbearing
• Mid face: straight nose with some concavity to it, not too long, wide or bulbous
• Lower face: full lip projection, well defined chin, neck and jaw line

MAKING THE CASE FOR THE CHIN … It is the framework and support system for the entire face. Too weak or strong of a framework can distort the rest of the facial structure, throwing off the balance and proportion. For example, a chin that is too small or recessed can make the nose look too big, or on the other hand, a chin that is too prominent can draw too much attention and be unbalanced with the rest of the facial features.

BRINGING PROFILE BALANCE WITH THE CHIN…Usually the chin is a feature that men are known for, and is therefore attributed as a masculine focused feature. But the lack of a chin can even throw off the harmony in a feminine profile and can increase an aging appearance caused by that lack of definition between the face and neck.

HOW THE CHIN AGES…Most people first notice the signs of aging in the upper face, such as wrinkles on the forehead and around their eyes. But, even though they may be more subtle in some people, the signs of aging don’t skip over the lower face. With age, the chin begins to look different:
• sagging skin, volume loss from the mid face and upper jaw ends up hanging from the lower jaw
• fat and sagging skin accumulation under the chin
• bone loss in the chin and jaw

One solution for mild repair would be use of injectables to restore volume and contour to the chin area. Another option could be chin augmentation surgery.

CHIN IMPLANTS FOR RESTORING FACIAL BALANCE… This is one of the most popular options to restore facial balance and a youthful, natural appearance. Chin implants are a safe and effective surgical modification that can be tailored to your unique facial needs. It can also be combined with other surgeries, such as a Facelift, Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) or Nose Reshaping.

CHIN IMPLANT SURGERY, SAFE AND QUICK… Of all the facial plastic surgeries, this is one of the fastest to perform, and for my patients, a quick recovery. Chin implants are made from a variety of materials and come in various shapes and sizes. This allows for custom tailoring in order to create your perfect profile!

Don’t Neglect the Neck

No matter how smooth, firm and wrinkle free someone’s face is, when the neck is drooping, weathered and wrinkled, it can take away from any youthful appearance. So unless you want to be wearing a turtle neck or scarf year round, take care of your neck. If you’re already noticing the signs of aging, then don’t worry because I can help. There are a variety of ways to rejuvenate the neck and take years off your overall appearance.

Why Rejuvenate the Neck… Although it’s technically not part of the face, having a smooth, trim neck profile can dramatically restore an overall natural and youthful appearance. A youthful neck contour not only makes the patient appear younger, but also elegant and refined. The neck also can have a significant aging (or anti aging) effect on the profile.

How the Neck Ages… Understanding the underlying muscles of the neck and how they are affected by the aging process will help you understand why the neck ages and how. The platysma muscle is immediately under the skin of the neck. In our youth, it is tight and meets in the middle of the neck under the chin. You can easily see this muscle in the mirror when you clench your teeth and tighten your jaw.

As we age, the right and left sides of the platysma muscle come apart, which creates the look of vertical bands in the neck. Also, as the skin loses elasticity with age, the lower part of the face and neck show the effects most dramatically. This results in sagging, drooping jowel and waddle under the chin.

Reverse Aging of the Neck… I have extensive study and experience in the face and neck rejuvenation. As a matter of fact, they’re my specialty. The most effective surgical options for rejuvenating the neck are liposuction, cervicoplasty and the neck lift, technically called a platysmaplasty, which is named after the muscle in the neck that the surgery corrects.

Liposuction: Generally speaking, my younger clients who want more definition between their jawline and neck who still have good skin elasticity and strong muscles are good candidates for liposuction.

Cervicoplasty: This procedure is geared towards those people who are just concerned with the double chin or excess neck waddle.

Platysmaplasty: A neck lift deals with more midline neck correction of muscles that improves the chin and neck, as well as the removal of extra skin and fat.

Without a doubt, the neck is a major contributor to the overall youthfulness of the face. In the hands of a specialist, these surgeries for the removal of fat and excess skin, and tightening of the muscles, are sure to result in an attractive neck contour and rejuvenated appearance.

FaceLift for a firm, full, fabulous face…

Facelift for a Firm, Full and Fabulous Face

The Facelift is one of the most time tested and evolved cosmetic surgeries. Todays’ Facelift has many customizable options for facial rejuvenation and when performed by an expert surgeon like myself, you can expect to achieve beautiful results. Often, it is a combination of surgical and non surgical procedures that help my patients achieve the optimal age reversal results.

FACELIFT FOR FACIAL HARMONY…There certainly is an art to the science and surgery of the Facelift. It is always my goal to create a rejuvenated appearance that is harmonious and restores natural curvatures and volume in the right places. Each feature of the face may show the signs of aging at different rates, so it’s best to address each feature at the right time. It’s also important not to neglect an area of the face so that the effect is a disjunction in aging. In conjunction with injectables, there are levels of Facelifts, from less invasive to those that can take up to 10 years off your appearance.

FACELIFT IN YOUR 40s…It’s very normal to try liquid face lifts, especially now with VOLUMA XC to restore volume in the cheeks and create a subtle lift to the mid face that can even lessen marionette lines. But if the upper face and lower face need to be addressed as well, a mini lift is the least invasive surgical option. This option is highly requested by women in their 40s. Mini lifts give better definition by tightening the underlying muscles. This can really give a youthful boost to the brows or jaw line that can keep you looking younger for longer.

FACE LIFT IN YOUR 50s AND 60s… Often times, women in this age range are looking for more noticeable results that address specific age issues that can’t be fixed with injectables. A Traditional Facelift during this time can take 10 years off the face. As skin sagging becomes more apparent, so do concerns of drooping brow, mid-face and sometimes the neck. The Traditional, also called a Full Facelift is the only way to rejuvenate every area of the face from the forehead down to the neck.

  • THE MANY FACETS OF THE FACELIFT…Facelifts address many layers of the face to restore youthful appearance. While in decades past it just involved tightening skin and using skin tension to contour the face, modern Facelifts accomplish more natural contours by taking a multi faceted surgical approach. It even improves the facial shape to be less square and more angular or tapered, which is more youthful. Addressing the layers of the FaceLift include:
  • reposition sagging muscles, fat and tissue
  • redrape skin
  • reduce excess face, jawline and neck skin

 

COMBINATION FOR OVERALL FACIAL REJUVENATION… Each individual has unique needs, but a youthful appearance that is harmonious across all facial features often involves a facelift in combination with other common facial rejuvenation procedures. Some combinations include:

  • eyelift
  • browlifts
  • lip filler
  • chin augmentation
  • necklift

I am triple board certified in plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and head & neck surgery. You can be confident you’re in the best hands for a facelift. Contact me today to schedule a consultation. www.davinciplastic.com

Curvaceous Buttocks Augmentation…

Your Best Butt Now

All this snow and cold weather has lots of people dreaming about the warm summer months. This is actually the perfect time to start thinking about your bikini body too. With all the amazing body enhancing surgeries to give your body the curves you desire, such as liposuction, tummy tuck and breast implants, more and more people are requesting buttock augmentations. Butt augmentation was the fastest growing procedure last year and that trend is expected to continue.

Trend from South America for Your “Southern Regions”…This greater buttocks awareness has come up from South America over the last couple of years, especially Brazil, that has a large cultural appreciation for this part of the body. Celebrities, such as Shakira, J Lo, Nicki Minaj, and the Kardashians have led the way for the plump posterior preference. Popularly called a Brazilian Butt Lift, this procedure can include liposuction, lifting, fat grafting, and implants to create your ideal buttock fullness and shape.

Working with “What Your Momma Gave You”… Which butt augmentation technique we’ll need to use will be determined by your      shutterstock_76782826

  • age,
  • muscle tone
  • skin elasticity
  • available fat you have to transplant
  • existing buttock size and shape

Fat Grafting By the Best… Fat grafting is the ideal way to contour the buttocks because it uses your own living fat cells. The fat cells are liposuctioned from areas such as abdomen or thighs, purified, and then injected expertly to shape and contour the buttocks. The success of this process has much to do with the experience of the surgeon.

Don’t compromise by choosing someone without a high level of training because you could end up with a lumpy, bumpy or saggy butt. For example, I am an expert injector, specially trained and certified to know how much to inject and in what areas to create wonderful, natural looking results.

Implants for that Rounder Rump… For most people I recommend the fat grafting method for butt enhancement, but there are some cases where an implant is the best option. For example, if you’re a size 2 or 4, you probably won’t have enough fat to transplant, therefore an implant can create your curves. Also, if your buttock area is completely flat and sagging, then creating the derriere of your dreams will require a bit more help. Here are the aspects of using implants for building better buttocks:

  1. IMPLANT…A solid silicone implant works best since it cannot rupture, spill, or deflate. Your augmented buttock will still feel natural, but firm… like you’ve been working out.
  2. INCISION… There are a few location options we can decide on together, such as toward the top of the buttocks, the bottom crease, or down the center of the sacrum.
  3. POSITION… Nice results have been attained with both above and below muscle placement, but typically placement within the muscle supports the implant more.
  4. LIFT & LIPO… Lifting sagging skin and liposuction can help create a harmonious effect with the buttock implant for an overall beautifully contoured area.

If you want your best butt now, you need to be in the hands of the best surgeon. I’m triple board certified, a professor and author of hundreds of publications on important plastic surgery subjects, including patient safety.

Request A New Nose for Christmas

Take Years Off Your Face with Rhinoplasty

Poor Rudolph the Reindeer. All he’s known for is his bright red nose. In reality, no person suffers from a bright red glowing nose, but sometimes those humps and bumps, that droopy or bulbous tip, or crooked bridge can make some people feel like they do. Ideally, the nose is meant to fit harmoniously with your unique facial composition.

RESHAPING WITH RHINOPLASTY… Commonly called a “nose job,” Rhinoplasty plastic surgery can enhance the nose in many ways. By reducing its size or shape, or correcting injuries, the nose can become part of a pleasing facial unity. I’ve written about this before and am considered one of the experts in this area, but this time I’d like to focus on the anti aging benefits that can be provided by Rhinoplasty.

NEGLECTED NOSE NO MORE… Cosmetic procedures such as facelift, necklift, and blepheroplasty are very popular for turning back the time on the face. However, most people don’t realize that Rhinoplasty can have dramatic age reversing effects, as well. While Rhinoplasty is still predominantly considered a facial modification procedure to change the nose to be more visually pleasing, it is becoming more recognized for its age reversing effects. Predominantly it’s being done as part of an overall facial rejuvenating experience in combination with fillers and other surgeries.

HOW THE NOSE AGES THE FACE… The break down of collagen and elastin fibers in skin surrounding the nose and in the cartilage of the nose causes sagging and drooping. This can make the nose stretch and appear longer. This combination of droopy nose tip, and loss of elasticity and volume to the surrounding areas makes the nose look even larger, which amplifies the appearance of facial aging.

NOSE JOBS “THEN & NOW”… In years past, rhinoplasty involved removing most of the cartilage, which also made it more prone to aging faster. With less support structure for the tip of the nose, it would more readily fall down and forward. In today’s surgical methods, only a small portion of the cartilage may need to be removed. Even so, I also reinforce the supporting structures of the nose to make it less affected by gravity, therefore staying younger longer.

FACIAL HARMONY… The nose is the centerpiece of the face and so it really affects how well the other features are integrated. It shouldn’t distract from the lips or eyes, but if other areas of the face are receiving the anti aging attention of injectables and surgery, while the nose stays untouched, it could become a distraction.

YOUTHFUL NOSE FOR A YOUTHFUL FACE… There are some recognizable features of a youthful nose that can help rejuvenate your appearance. Here are a few:shutterstock_10125679

1. Smooth and Even rather than bumpy and bulbous.

2. Tip pointed slightly up rather than dropping down.

3. Narrower width rather than poorly defined placement.

So follow your nose for an anti aging RHINOPLASTY that can help take years off your face. Visit my website www.davinciplastic.com to schedule a consultation.

Botox nose reshaping is one of today’s most popular procedures and requires no surgery. While you’re short on time for surgical Rhinoplasty for the Holidays, if surgery is not required, Botox may be a good option for you. Otherwise, schedule your Rhinoplsty surgery now for the first of the year and start enjoying a “more youthful” facial appearance.  Rhinoplasty is popular among people of all ages, stages and ethnicities and people love giving and receiving the gift of cosmetic procedures.
