Treating Fine Lines, Wrinkles and More: Neurotoxins 101

When neurotoxins are administered correctly, they are exceptional for the treatment of wrinkles and reducing the signs of aging. How they work:  By temporarily blocking nerve receptors to facial muscles, neurotoxins soften the look of existing lines and wrinkles while also preventing others from forming. Treatment Areas:  The most common treatment areas are the crow's feet, a saggy brow line, forehead wrinkles and frown lines.  However, it can also be used to treat: Gummy smiles Excessive sweating Scar healing Contouring and neck bands Cleavage wrinkles Slimming the jawline Teeth clenching and grinding, TMJ What to expect: Neurotoxins are injected directly into the targeted muscle using a fine needle.

The Mommy Makeover

Move over mommies! The mommy makeover is not just for mommies.  The mommy makeover is my personal favorite procedure to perform in plastic surgery.  So what is it exactly?   tighter abdominal muscles +  liposculpted tummy + fuller, more youthful-looking breasts = mommy makeover.  Who else is getting the mommy makeover?  Bariatric patients after massive weight loss (to remove the excess sagging skin) Women after twins or triplets Women with diastasis recti (separation of the abdomen muscle) Women who have had multiple abdominal surgeries which can cause sagging skin and an uneven lumpy appearance.   The truth is, mommy makeover candidates include anyone who wants the physical transformation provided by combining a tummy tuck, liposuction, and cosmetic breast surgery.  Breast surgery can be an augmentation (smaller or bigger) with or without a breast lift.

Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant...
