ASPS Plastic Surgery Vlog
If you're considering plastic surgery, do it for you.
Facial recognition technology can quantify how effectively your procedure has refreshed your appearance. It may also help a surgeon assess a patient's pain level during surgery. Ask your plastic surgeon how your procedure may impact life in the digital world.
DYK a breast reduction includes a breast lift? It's true. Taking away tissue helps, but the lift aspect can provide tremendous relief to neck, back and should pain. Also, the areola will get smaller. How's that? It's all in the video.
Watch Drs. Karen Horton and Jamie Moenster debunk the myths. Plastic surgery isn't always scarless (but we know where to hide and treat them). It isn't vain (taking care of yourself never is). It isn't fake (you'll look like yourself, just refreshed).
When should you start fillers and neurotoxins to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin? Drs. Smita Ramanadham and Ashley Amalfi talk prejuvenation, and the BIGGEST thing is to start before lines become permanent. If you're not moving those muscles, you're not making wrinkles.
Whether it's neurotoxins, liposuction or upper-eyelid surgery, more men are seeking a refreshed appearance through plastic surgery.
Radiofrequency energy is great for patients who aren't ready for a facelift, breast lift or tummy tuck but do have a little excess skin and fat. Dr. Jacob Unger explains how the technology works, who's a good candidate for the procedure and shares a before and after photo.
It's common for patients to wonder if they'll still look like themselves after getting injectables. Watch Smita Ramanadham, MD, and Ashley Amalfi, MD, discuss how the goals are a refreshed appearance and preserving your unique natural beauty.
"There are so many things with breast cancer treatment that you can't control, and I felt with plastic surgery I was able to take back some control and have the ability to look and feel like myself."
