Vasileios Pagkalos's Expert Contributions
Thank you for your question. Liposuction is a safe procedure as long as it is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon. Long term risks associated with liposuction are only results of poor technique and such include depressions in areas suctioned and bumpy or wavy skin. Also bear in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It basically makes your body more anatomically harmonious. Therefore you should try not to gain weight after liposuction since that could ruin your overall appearance. READ MORE
Thank you for your question. Liposuction is indeed a permanent solution for stubborn local fat. It is considered the "gold standard" in local fat treatment and definitely worth it. However, in order to achieve the maximum safe results, you should address a board certified plastic surgeon. READ MORE
Hi thank you for your question. According to your description, your nose needs a rhinoplasty. You would probably need correction of the deviated septum with or without modifications of the tip. However, you should consult with a plastic surgeon since different noses require different approaches. READ MORE
Hi, thank you for your message. Unfortunately, wrinkles around the eyes is not an issue easily solved with homemade remedies. Your doctor has some great tools to treat wrinkles around the eyes, such as botox, Hyaluronic acid, fractional laser, chemical peelings. I would suggest you consult a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist to discuss what's best for you. In more severe cases, upper and/or lower blepharoplasty would significally improve patient's appearance. READ MORE
Brazillian butt lift, as most of plastic surgery procedures, can be adjusted according to patients wishes. You should consult with your plastic surgeon and thoroughly communicate your desires.

Hips' shape is a very common issue. Several surgical options have addressed the issue with buttock implants gaining more popularity nowadays. When properly performed, buttock implants dramatically improve the shape of the hips. READ MORE
CoolSculpting is a device that targets fat cells and destroys them through exposing them to excessive cold. It is one of the few non-surgical procedures that have proven to minimise local fat. However results may vary and there is a rare complication that is called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia that should be discussed with your physician. READ MORE
Stretch marks are very common after pregnancy and although you used moisturiser, probably that wasn't enough. There are some products such as strata mark (a product that is distributed in the EU) that help a lot. Other, more invasive options include Fraxional laser and specific mesotherpapy treatments. You should consult your physician but you have to act fast. The faster you treat them, the better the results. READ MORE
