A Day in the Life of a Plastic Surgeon

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

  One of the better things about being a plastic surgeon is that no two days are ever alike. I thought it would be fun to share with you what a day in my life looks like. May 10, 2017 began off with a SmartLipo case for a female client from Baltimore. She had previously came in for a complimentary consultation with her sister. Like many couples who come in to my office for a similar treatment, one will complete theirs first so the other can hear how easy or tough it was. Of course my hope is that they always think of it…

My Experience with the PicoSure Laser Facial

By | Picosure, Skincare | No Comments
Written by Jacqueline Seabra, Master Esthetician As a Master Esthetician, I can truly say that I’m delighted with the results from PicoSure, which is a minimally invasive treatment. As I’m every defensive about what goes on my skin, I wanted to try the facial treatment without any numbing/ I was a little skeptical, but definitely willing to try. I will note that I do have a high tolerance for pain and discomfort in general, but I found it to be minimally uncomfortable - a heat sensation that I’ll describe as intense but at the same time, it felt good. The...

Are Breast Augmentations Still Taboo?

By | Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift | No Comments

The quick answer is NO! In the United States alone, there are literally millions of women who have had a breast augmentation. Based on the sheer number of women getting the procedure, we can clearly concur that it is not taboo. From young women wanting to look a little fuller, to weight loss success stories, mothers and grandmothers looking to get their lift back, there are no limits to age and circumstance of women getting this popular procedure done. There is also a shift I’m seeing, especially in the past few years. Women are feeling much more comfortable being open about having…

What’s New in Cosmetic Surgery for 2017

By | general | No Comments

  It’s amazing what advancements take place each year in cosmetic surgery. This part year has brought about two major breakthroughs, PicoSure and SculpSure.  The PicoSure laser is a gamechanger in facial procedures. Almost all women over the age of 30 develop irregular areas of increased pigmentation on their face. As they continue to age, this will extend onto the neck and chest area and also the hands. This is often even more pronounced in the Asian population. Traditional laser treatments have included CO2, IPL and Fraxel lasers. These are very helpful with white skin but the problem is these treatments…

SmartLipo Versus Traditional Liposuction

By | Smart Lipo | No Comments

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is how do SmartLipo and regular liposuction differ and which is better. Traditional liposuction involves infiltrating a wetting solution, typically a combination of saline with lidocaine and epinephrine).  In most cases, this is done in the operating room under general anesthesia. Most patients will need to take about 4-6 days off of work to recover. Since it is done under general anesthesia, you have to pay for the operating room and the anesthesiologist. You also need to fast beforehand and have someone with you to drive you home. Most patients are quite sore for several…

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?

By | Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Mommy Makeover, Tummy Tuck | No Comments

It’s important to understand that a Mommy Makeover is not a specific set of operative procedures. It refers to the surgery one might undergo after having a baby. Most commonly, it involves having a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift. However, it could refer to just one of these procedures or could include SmartLipo, a mini Tummy Tuck or a breast lift. There is no way I can help you determine via a blog post whether or not a specific surgery is right for you. You really need to visit a board-certified plastic surgeon for a  personal consultation…

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?

By | Laser Hair Removal | No Comments

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular uses for lasers in the cosmetic/aesthetic industry. The reason for this is because it works so well. The first thing a prospective client needs to ask of the practitioner performing the service is whether their laser provides laser hair reduction or permanent hair removal. This is very important because the laser hair reductions are exactly that – they only reduce your hair, and will not permanently remove it. These much less expensive lasers are frequently owned by spas,  and therefore they are able to charge much less. Almost all of the clients…
