It used to be thought that facial aging was all about gravity and its downward pull on the skin and muscles of the face. But turns out, that’s not exactly true. Facial aging is also about volume loss which is why fillers have completely changed how plastic surgeons approach facial rejuvenation. As we age, our face naturally begins to lose fat in areas such as the temples, the cheeks, around the eyes, the lips, and around the mouth. Facial fillers, typically composed of hyaluronic acid which is a natural forming substance in our bodies, can “pump up the volume”, plumping up fine lines and wrinkles, and providing a temporary “lift” to areas such as the cheeks and mid-face. Patients with subtle asymmetries on their noses can even be treated with fillers for a less permanent non-surgical rhinoplasty.
We all have them. Those small pockets of fat that we just can’t seem to get rid of no matter how hard we diet and exercise. Luckily, there is liposuction, a minimally invasive treatment that removes unwanted fat from almost any area on the body including the abdomen, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, and upper arms. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique, it is a body contouring technique that specifically targets fatty bulges to sculpt and re-contour the affected areas so that they are more proportional to the rest of your body. The result is a firmer, leaner, younger looking you.
Believe or not, men have breast tissue just like women. But while many women desire larger breasts, this is not the case with men. There are any number of things that can cause excess breast tissue or gynecomastia in men. These include age, hormones, genetics and certain drugs/medications. Gynecomastia can present itself as an abundance of firm, fibrous tissue beneath the nipple, redundant skin and an excess of fatty tissue.
