Your Best Butt in 2017

You’re not alone if you’re dreaming of the beach and warm summer months – as you scrape ice and snow from your car and driveways. Now is the perfect time to change your lifestyle by making healthier long term choices that will get you summer…bathing – suit ready.
There are lots of ways cosmetic surgery can help you achieve your perfect, cosmetic body goals, for example liposuction, tummy tuck and breast implants. But… one of the hottest trends in 2017 are well rounded, curvaceous buttocks resulting from the Brazilian Butt Lift.

Brazil is famous for the 2016 Olympics…and for one of the hottest 2017 trends…the Brazilian Butt Lift. The plump posterior movement was lead by the gorgeous rear ends of the thong bikini wearing Brazilian women – and celebrities, such as J Lo, Iggy Azalea, Shakira, Beyonce and the Kardashians. With increasing popularity over the past few years, the Brazilian Butt Lift, creates your ideal buttock fullness/shape using a combination of procedures that can include liposuction, lifting, fat grafting, and implants.
Brazilian Butt Lift is not a cookie cutter procedure… The vision of what we’re trying to accomplish with a Brazillian Butt Lift is different for different people and the factors that affect outcome: age, muscle tone, skin elasticity, cellulite, available fat for transplant and your existing butt size and shape.

This is where a specially trained, experienced surgeon, such as myself, will consult with you to assess the desired lift, shape, fullness and overall contour of your desired derriere. Don’t compromise by choosing someone without a high level of training because you could end up with a saggy, lumpy or bumpy butt.

Two main ways for creating curves and lifting butts… The options for creating a lifted, firmer buttock are fat grafting and implants. I believe that the ideal Buttock Augmentation is from using your own fat. Fat grafting is natural in its look, feel and because it’s your own purified fat. Fat grafting uses only your living fat cells, and when performed with expert precision and technique, the transplanted cells “graft” and live permanently where they are placed.

Also, there’s the added benefit of contouring the area where the liposuction is performed to collect the fat for the Buttock Augmentation. I prefer to only use implants if there is no available excess fat or in combination with fat grafting if there isn’t sufficient fat to achieve the complete desired results.

No butts about it, if you want your best…most curvaceous, buttocks of your dreams – I can help you with a Buttock Augmentation. Let’s talk about the curves you crave. Visit www.davinciplastic.com to schedule a consultation for your safe, beautiful Brazilian Butt Lift today.

Getting it right: REVISION RHINOPLASTY

 

Very few surgeons are truly qualified to perform the complicated procedure of Revision Rhinoplasty. Revision or Secondary Rhinoplasty is a correction, whether functional or aesthetic, to the unsatisfactory results of a previous Rhinoplasty (Nose) surgery.

WHEN TO GO FOR THE REVISION… Typically, the recommendation is to wait a year after the original Rhinoplasty so that there is ample time for healing and the nose to “settle” into its new anatomy. There can be a shorter duration to this recovery time depending on the extent of the previous surgery, which can be discussed during the consultation.

Although the decision should not be made lightly, you should consider a revision if you have any of these issues:

  • persistent breathing problems
  • nose still too large
  • still a bump in the bridge
  • new nose not in balance with the rest of the face
  • too much removed
  • tip of your nose needs better refinement
  • tip is deflected off to one side (“twisted tip”)

WHY IS REVISION RHINOPLASTY MORE COMPLICATED?

  • Changes to the typical anatomy and geography of the nose due to cartilage removal during the first surgery
  • There may not be enough cartilage in the nose to work with and it has to be borrowed from behind the ear, which also requires extra incisions
  • Navigating the scar tissue in the nasal lining from the primary surgery
  • There is a higher risk of developing little spider veins in the nose called telangectasias
  • All of these issues increase the variables and the amount of time in surgery

SURGICAL EXPERIENCE IS CRUCIAL… It is possible that the problem resulting from the original Rhinoplasty may not be the fault of the original surgeon. Anatomical variations and the healing process aren’t under their control. Although, the actual surgery is under the surgeon’s control, which is why you need the most experience surgical hands for the best possible outcome. This is especially true with navigating the altered anatomy and scar tissue present during a revision Rhinoplasty. It requires not only skill, but an artful eye, as well.

CHOOSE A SURGEON WHO:

  • IS Qualified with expert training (I’m triple board certified in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck surgery, Facial plastic & General plastic surgery)
  • Has many years of experience with many surgeries (almost 2 decades of surgical experience)
  • Does them regularly – Our patients come from across the country to have revision rhinoplasty  – using my advanced techniques and honed skills…

This is one of those surgeries where the extra care and attention I give to my clients is crucial for discussing expectations, changes and the best technique to accomplish the goal of the Revision Rhinoplasty. To schedule a consultation to get the nose you desire, visit www.davinciplastic.com.

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!

Best to you and Yours,
