Posted in Non Surgical Face Lift

Is a Beverly Hills Non Surgical Face Lift Possible?

Many women love the idea of a Beverly Hills non surgical face lift – smaller costs, less recovery time, and less invasive procedures seem like a great deal. However, do Beverly Hills non surgical face lift really deliver? It is important to keep in mind that when it comes to the non surgical face lift, Beverly Hills offers many options:

1) Thermage is the brand name of a non-surgical face lift procedure which uses heat to increase collagen production in the facial area, creating a more youthful look. This type of procedure takes about one hour and reduces the signs of wrinkles and drooping.

2) Sculptra is a filler injected under the skin. It prompts the skin to increase collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and creating a more youthful look. Usually, about three or four treatments are required to see results.

3) Laser face lifts allow surgeons to tighten the top skin layers and resurface the top layers of the skin. Althogh skin is a bit sensitive and slightly discolored shortly after the treatment, the patient enjoy smoother skin and fewer wrinkles.

4) The Bio-Ultimate face lift, the cellular production of the skin in enhanced with the application of electrical currents. This tightens the skin, reduces the appearance of sun damage, exfoliates the skin, and makes the skin tone better.

These procedures are generally better for women who need only a moderate lift. These procedures will not tauten the jaw line or treat very deep folds around the mouth – the most common reasons women decide to get a face lift. However, they can promote an overall more youthful look and can smooth out wrinkles.

How To Get Your Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Questions Answered

If you are considering plastic surgery, you likely have many questions. You may wonder about costs, risks, and the possible outcomes of your surgery. You may wonder which procedures are best for you. You may want to know which surgeons and clinics you should trust. You may even wonder whether Beverly Hills plastic surgery before and after photos (popular in so many clinics and magazines) are accurate. If you have questions, there are many ways to get answers:

1) Speak to your doctor. Your physician can tell you whether you health is generally good enough to withstand surgery, may offer medical advice about surgery and can even refer you to plastic surgeons.

2) Speak to other patients. Other patients can tell you about their personal experiences with a specific clinic, procedure, or surgeon. While it is important to keep in mind that every patient’s experience is different, it is a good idea to talk to patients if you can. It’s a great way to learn about the subjects that are hard to find information about (such as how bad the pain is after a specific procedure).

3) Read about it. There are plenty of books, articles, and pamphlets about plastic surgery and every type of procedure under the sun. Visit a local library and read as many current sources of information as you can. It’s a great way to learn what to expect and a good way to learn about prospective surgeons. Just keep in mind that any material more than a year or two old is likely out of date. Also, while books and publications are a great way to get your Beverly Hills plastic surgery questions answered, take the information with a grain of salt. Do not rely just on books and pamphlets. Just because a surgeon writes in his book that his procedure is great, it does not mean it is great for you.

4) Talk to surgeons during consultations. Surgeons are a great way to get your Beverly Hills plastic surgery questions answered, because surgeons are trained to talk to you about your specific situation and what you can expect from a specific procedure. Surgeons can also show you Beverly Hills plastic surgery before and after photos, which can be helpful.

5) Write it down. Always carry a notebook with you. In it, you can note the latest information you have heard, as well as from whom and when. That way, when you need to look up those Beverly Hills plastic surgery before and after photos again, you know which magazine they appeared in.

Why Not to Get Rhinoplasty After a Major Emotional Upset

Why Not to Get Rhinoplasty After a Major Emotional Upset

Most quality Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty surgeons carefully screen patients. If you want Rhinoplasty, Beverly Hills surgeons you visit will generally ask you whether you have recently experienced a difficult life event (such as divorce, bereavement, bankruptcy, or a serious illness or accident). The reason surgeons ask this question is because it is generally inadvisable to get a serious cosmetic procedure such as Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty after a serious emotional or life trauma.

There are several reasons for this. A big emotional upset often takes our emotions on a rollercoaster ride. We may be angry one day, sad the next, and fine the next. While this is perfectly normal, making serious life decisions in this context is dangerous because you might change your mind about the decision as your emotions change. In other words, a Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty procedure may seem like a great idea after your divorce when you want to feel better, but you might change your mind about it a few years down the road. Since Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty is a permanent procedure, though, you will be out of luck.

Are Beverly Hills Silicone Breast Implants Safe?

Are Beverly Hills Silicone Breast Implants Safe?

Since the scare over silicone breast implants in the 1990s, many women have been asking their surgeons in Beverly Hills: “Silicone breast implants – are they safe?” It is important to note, when answering this question, that not all Beverly Hills silicone breast implants are the same. Silicone implants were first developed by Texas plastic surgeons in 1961. Since then, these implants have gone through five “generations,” each representing a new type of manufacture. The implants from each generations are significantly different. The first generation of implants were made from a thick silicone rubber sac filled with a thick silicone gel. Since these did not feel very natural, the second generation of silicone breast implants (Beverly Hills was a very popular location for these types of implants) used thinner sacs and thinner gels, creating a more natural feel. These second-generation silicone implants were associated with complications such as leaking implants and capsular contracture. Due to a polyurethane foam coating, these silicone implants were alleged to increase cancer risks, but an FDA investigation disproved this and found that the implants did not increase risks.

In the third, fourth, and fifth generation of silicone implants, manufacturers used thin but sturdier sacs to prevent leaking and thicker silicone substances to improve the feel of the implants while decreasing the risk of complications. These implants are considered much safer than earlier versions and less likely to cause any complications. In fact, a very thorough study conducted in 1997 by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science (IOM) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found that silicone breast implants posed no significant risks. Many other studies also concluded that there is no link between disease and silicone breast implants. The FDA has approved silicone gel-filled implants as safe for patient use.

When Not to Consider Breast Enhancement

The decision to visit a breast enhancement Beverly Hills clinic for a breast augmentation is a very personal and difficult one. Ultimately, only you know whether you are ready for a cosmetic procedure or not. However, you may want to consider again and rethink your Beverly Hills breast enhancement procedure if:

1) You’re not sure. Beverly Hills breast enhancement is usually a permanent procedure, so if you have any fears, questions, or hesitation, you need to resolve this before moving forward.

2) You don’t have the time or inclination to do your homework. Beverly Hills breast enhancement procedures are a lot of work. You need to visit different clinics and speak to surgeons and patients. You need to research the process so that you know it is right for you. You need to prepare for the surgery, budget, and recover after the process.

3) You have a history of serious disease. If breast cancer runs in your family, you will want to check with your doctor to ensure that Beverly Hills breast enhancement procedures will still allow accurate diagnosis and mammograms to be done. If you have serious medical conditions, you will want to be advised of the risks and will want to discuss these risks with both your regular doctor and your surgeon.

4) You don’t have the money. You should not borrow to get Beverly Hills breast enhancement surgery, since the costs of the surgery will mean that you are repaying the costs for a long time.
