Ear Reshaping or Otoplasty Information

Orange County Otoplasty or Ear Reshaping:
Otoplasty, commonly known as ear surgery, is performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.

Ears are almost fully grown by age four, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Ear surgery on adults is also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.

Some good information about your nose job

What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a very common procedure which aims to change the appearance of the nose to make it more harmonious on the face. The surgery can thin, turn up, augment, shorten or lengthen, and essentially change the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasties are commonly called 'nose jobs'. It can involve rasping of the nasal bones to remove a bump, resecting the cartiledge to change it's projection, trimming the cartiledge to make it smaller and more defined and a whole myriad of procedures.
Most rhinoplasty procedures are done after the patient has stopped maturing on their face. This usually occurs at 16-17 in girls and a little later in boys. Rhinoplasty can be combined with a chin augmentation, which can help balance the look of both the nose and the chin. Sometimes a problem in one area creates a perceived problem in the other.

What kind job is a nose job?

Orange County Rhinoplasty Forum:

 The field of medicine has come a long way from focusing on life-saving operations, correcting birth defects or treating injuries. Science has expanded the realm of possibilities to include the field of cosmetic surgery which offers the promise of undoing physical imperfections and enhancing natural beauty. Therefore the promise lies in making the ideals of beauty into a reality and thereby improves self-confidence.

One of the more common plastic surgery procedures out in the market is rhinoplasty, which is more commonly referred to as 'getting a nose job' or simply nose surgery.
Of course, this type of surgery can also be used to remedy breathing problems. However, this is more frequently availed to augment the shape of the nose to meet the aesthetic goals of an individual - that is to improve one's appearance and thereby improve self-confidence and self-esteem.

How Smoking Can Affect Your Cosmetic Surgical Results

Orange County Plastic Surgery: 

Many of us realize that quitting smoking at any point is one of the best things that patients can do to increase their overall health and longevity. However, in the case of cosmetic surgery, it is a necessary step in working toward a patient’s ideal final outcome. Some board-certified cosmetic surgeons limit the cosmetic surgery procedures they perform on smokers because smoking increases the risk of pulmonary complications and can impede wound healing, which may decrease the quality of surgical results.

In a survey by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, 955 board-certified plastic surgeons were asked about their standards regarding treatment of patients who smoke. While ninety percent of the board-certified plastic surgeons surveyed said they perform elective plastic surgery on smokers, approximately fifty percent of this group stated that they limit the type of procedure they perform on smokers.

What to do with a double chin or turkey neck?

Orange County Face Lift Surgeon:

A turkey neck or double chin in young people is most commonly treated by liposuction. The results from neck liposuction are significantly influenced by the quality of the overlying skin. In younger patients with good taut or thick skin will respond by shrinking and adapting upward to a less obtuse neck-jaw angle. Loose or wobbly skin may shrink somewhat but it will be irregular with band and cords apparent to the eye. When neck skin is loose, the liposuction procedure must be combined with some type of neck lifting or neck tightening procedure called platysmaplasty. One often overlooked consideration in neck liposuction is that of the chin. Should the chin be brought forward or is its projection adequate where it is currently? In the spirit of what one is trying to achieve by removing fat from the neck…a more evident jaw and neck line…the chin should not be forgotten. In some cases, it can be a good complement to the look that liposuction creates.

Doctor Says: "Go Ahead and Pick Your Nose"!

Of all the surgeries that are performed at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, nose reshaping/rhinoplasty is Dr. Sadati’s absolute favorite. Dr. Sadati, a board certified facial plastic surgeon, has spent a large majority of his career in pursuit of training, education, and experience with the masters of nasal surgery in order to provide the best care to his patients. He has successfully performed hundreds of rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) procedures in which the care and precision in which he does nasal surgery is paramount.
Dr. Sadati likes to think that there is no surgery more important than nasal surgery. The nose has two important roles: the first role is that the nose enters the room first and sits right in the center of your face during conversation. It is the focal point of your whole face and represents your image. The second role of the nose is a functional role. Your nose is what allows you to breathe clearly and to smell. One role cannot be exchanged for the other and great care must be taken to maintain the functional role while improving the cosmetic role.

Doctor Says: "Are You Ready for Your Wedding Pictures?"

 Newport Beach Facial Plastic Surgeon:

With your wedding date set, if you're like most "brides to be", that seemingly endless list of tasks may be overwhelming. You may be concerned on how the flowers will smell, how the music will sound, and how the food will taste which are all short lived. But the pictures taken that day will capture the memories that will last for generations.

At the wedding and thereafter in the wedding pictures, all eyes will be focused on the bride, her dress, hair and not to forget her glowing complexion. Additional items that may be added to that list of tasks should include minor non-invasive procedures such as skincare, lip augmentation, or photofacial treatments. "The goal is to help the bride look more radiant" says Dr. Kevin Sadati, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in orange county, California. He reports the most popular procedures for brides-to-be are, Botox, lip augmentation, and chemical peels. The perfect time to start a new skincare routine is at least two months prior to the big day. Botox can be utilized to eliminate the frontal and "crow's feet" wrinkles, or even quiet down the under arm sweat glands.

Is there a difference between a Brazilian butt lift and an American butt lift?

 Orange County Plastic Surgery:

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a confusing term for those interested in buttock enlargement. The misleading part of its name is that of the lift. It is absolutely logical to assume that the buttocks are actually moved upward by some type of tissue lifting or relocation. This would usually mean that skin and fat is removed and tightened like that of a tummy tuck or a breast lift. But that is not the case.
The qualifying term is the Brazilian word that precedes butt lift. Understanding the significance of this country descriptor goes a long way towards appreciating the ethnic importance of larger buttocks and what is actually done during this cosmetic procedure. The buttock has long been associated as an important sexual feature of a woman. The buttocks are anatomically formed by the muscles of the hips and upper leg. The overlying skin and fat help make its overall shape but the size of the muscle plays the key role. This muscular feature has been given many cultural interpretations but it is largely aligned with the organs of reproduction. Thus when cosmetic surgery is performed on them, it is to increase their sexual attractiveness.

Do facial exercises help to improve your sagging neck and jowls?

Orange County Face Lift Surgeon:

The jowls sag, as well as the rest of the sides of the face, from three specific factors. The constant downward pull of gravity, loss of skin elasticity and weakening of ligaments, and a loss of fat under the skin. This is not a muscular problem so no amount of exercise will have a reversal effect. While some non-surgical skin tightening methods have been tried with very slight improvement, real jowl correction is a surgical problem.
Perhaps as a surprise to some, the concept of a facelift is what ideally addresses the sagging jowls. In a traditional facelift, the saggy skin and fat is pulled up along with the rest of the lower face and neck. In essence, the jowl tissues are lifted back up and resuspended. It is no surprise, therefore, why this approach would be so successful.
Rather than resuspension, some facial cosmetic surgeons think that the droopy fat underneath the jowl skin should be cut out or removed by liposuction. Since hanging fat under the skin is part contributor to the jowl problem, not just saggy skin, removal rather than resuspension seems equally logical. Does it make a difference as to which one is done?
My opinion on the technical management of jowls is…it varies. Both will work for the right patient. It depends as much on what facelift technique is being used as anything. If one is undergoing a full facelift, the wide open exposure permits an easily visualized field in which jowl fat resuspension can be very successfully done. This puts it back from where it came and helps maintain facial volume which is helpful for the older patient who is likely needing a traditional facelift. In the more limited facelift, also known as a Natural Lift, visualization of the jowls can be more restricted depending upon the extent of the dissection. Simple liposuction or direct excision is easier. Given that the limited facelift is usually done in a younger patient, the preservation of fat volume is not as critical. Given that the jowl area is the first area to relax in aging face; Natural lift would be a great and minimally invasive procedure to improve it.

How can Arnica Montana Help to Reduce Swelling and Bruising After My Mini Face Lift?

Orange County facial plastic surgery forum:

Arnica has been used for years both as a topical ointment and as an oral supplement. Applied externally, it reduces bruising and muscle soreness. When taken orally, it helps reduce/clear bruising and speed healing after surgery or a traumatic injury. While arnica has been used for over 100 years, it has caught a lot of attention in the past decade as more recent studies have shown its benefits as a more proven certainty.

How Long Does My Mini Face Lift or Natural Lift Really Last?

Face lifting procedure remains the mainstay of surgical facial rejuvenation since sagging neck and jowls are primary motivations and concern for baby boomers to improve. As part of questions and concerns about a face lift, patients often ask how long it will last. With understandable concerns about cost effectiveness and the apprehension about another future surgery, the longevity question is a concern but not a primary fear of a facelift.

Do you have to be an artist to do plastic surgery?

                                                              Orange County Cosmetic Surgery:
Plastic surgery is the most artistic field in medicine, few would disagree. Much like an artist, plastic surgeons combine vision, planning, and masterful technique to achieve their artistic goals. Artistic ability is not a requirement to become a plastic surgeon. In fact, I know many very good plastic surgeons who cannot even draw a stick figure. These are the “carpenters”. They can achieve excellent results from measuring distances and angles to devise the plan that would best serve them.  The best plastic surgeons use both an “artistic” and “carpenter” approach to their craft. There is certainly value in the saying “measure twice, cut once”. A less catchy but better adage would be “envision it, measure it, execute it!” Learn more about an artist and plastic surgeon.

Breast enlargement creams, and pills – Do they work?

                                                          Orange County Breast Surgeon:
Breast enlargement creams?, breast enlargement pills?, There are claims everywhere that you can increase you breast size one to three cup sizes without the costs and risks of surgery. Sounds too good to be true? Lets look deeper.

Breast enlargement cream and breast enlargement pill claims These creams and pills generally claim to work as phyto-estrogens. These are “naturally occurring” herbs and other chemicals that are involved with modulating a woman’s hormone levels.
They claim to be safe, because the active ingredients are natural and although they cause a modification of the woman’s own hormones, there are no hormones in the product. Reviewing product ingredients, most of these contain one or a combination of saw palmetto, fennel seed, black cohosh, dong quai, Fenugeek, and L-Tyrosine. Some of the top selling brands including Perfect Woman, Breast Actives, Cleavage, and Embrace “work” in this manner. Another common breast enhancement cream, Benefil, claims breast enlargement from dilation of the blood vessels in the skin from caffeine. Also, they claim that their cream tightens collagen which improves breast tone and lifts saggy breasts. This does not work hormonally. I am actually sure that it doesn’t work at all, as this makes no medical sense.

Is it safe to breast feed after breast implant surgery?

Orange County Breast Implants:
The value of breast feeding for the developing infant is well known. In general, women who consider breast augmentation are of child bearing age, so this comes up fairly frequently. Women are understandably concerned that choosing to have a breast augmentation will affect their ability to breast feed or that it may be dangerous for the child.
The truth is that breast feeding can be affected by breast implants, although unlikely. The inframammary (crease) incision does not involve division of any milk ducts or glandular tissue and these risks can be minimized with this incision choice. The incision around the nipple involves the division of some of the milk glands and is more likely to be a problem. That said, with either incision breast feeding is very likely to be successful with breast implants.
Studies have looked at the risks to the baby with breast feeding with breast implants. This has been aggressively studied and no risks have been identified. I can safely say that it is safe to breast feed with breast implants.

How Long My Breast Implants would last?

For many years, American women have been restricted to the types of implants they can have for their breast augmentation procedure.

Well, there is a new implant in the U.S. market, and it's called the cohesive gel implant (AKA the Gummy Bear breast implant). If breast augmentation is in your future, you should learn all you can about this fantastic new implant.
