  • How long does eye lift surgery last?

    Typically, most board certified surgeons will tell you that eye lift surgery lasts at least 10 years. Of course there are exceptions to that and every patient should be spoken to individually, based upon their anatomy and medical history. Certainly, there are cases of eyelid surgery that must be performed conservatively, for medical reasons, that may not last that entire time. I hope this gives you some general idea regarding your question. READ MORE

  • What are the side effects of Botox?

    Thank you for your question. I would encourage you to read the pamphlet that accompanies the botox vial for a full list of possible side effects. That pamphlet can be found on the Botox or Allergan website. Please read it thoroughly before you proceed with your treatment. It is important that you are comfortable with the use of any medication put into your body. READ MORE

  • Is facial plastic surgery painful?

    For the most part, surgical procedures on the skin and soft tissues of the face are not very painful. However, any procedure that involves fracturing of bone (rhinoplasty, jaw surgery for example) can be painful. I would ask your board certified plastic surgeon that question with regard to the specific procedure you are considering. READ MORE

  • Does an otoplasty affect hearing?

    Typically, no, an otoplasty (reshaping of the outer ear) does not affect hearing. READ MORE

  • Is there a way to remove stretch marks?

    The best way to think of stretch marks is that they are truly scars in the skin. So, the answer is (most of the time, NO). However, if the stretch marks exist within an area of the body that is amenable to surgical excision of skin in that area (lower abdomen for example) then the stretch marks can be excised and completely eliminated.

  • Is it safe to have a nose job in the summer?

    Typically, you can have nose surgery at any time of the year. Your surgical day should be a decision you make with your board certified plastic surgeon and one that fits into your unique schedule. There shouldn't be any increase in infection based up the time of year or temperature if you follow your doctors orders after surgery. READ MORE

  • Can plastic surgery remove burn scars?

  • Can you get plastic surgery on your lips?

  • Can you get fat removed from your cheeks?

  • How can I make my lips bigger with surgery?

    Surgical enhancement of the lips can take the form of several different surgical procedures. For older patients, a "lip lift" may produce the desired results. For younger patients, typically surgical procedures involve enhancing lip volume by either fat or fat + other tissue (dermal fat) grafting or transfer to the lip. Thank you for your question.
