What??? Another Botox Benefit??!

images3 What??? Another Botox Benefit??! Newport Beach Female Plastic Surgeon | Orange County Botox is great for making our wrinkles disappear but now there seems to be another benefit! New research has surfaced showing that getting botox injections can lead to a boost in elastin and collagen production. As we age, collagen production declines and our skin’s elasticity weakens, which is why those dreaded wrinkles form. According to the study by James P. Bonapart, MD, MSc, FRCSC, of the University of Ottawa and David Ellis, MD, FRCSC, of the University of Toronto (both in Canada), these injections “increased pliability & elastic recoil” with results similar to a radiofrequency tightening procedure. Why is this happening? Well, it’s unclear so future studies are definitely required. One downfall….these improvements only last on average of 4 months before the skin returns to how it was before the treatment. Either way, this is some positive feedback for the anti-aging benefits of Botox…don’t you agree??

Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures….By Age!!

109862658-300x200 Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures….By Age!! Newport Beach Female Plastic Surgeon | Orange CountyBelieve it or not but there are trends in Plastic Surgery!! One year, the “must do” procedure may be a lip augmentation and then the next year it’s cool sculpting and then the next year it’s a Brazilian Butt Lift! As the seasons change, so do most trends, but there are some that have remained constant throughout the years…simply due to age. Here are the most popular procedures grouped by age:

In Our Teens:

As they graduate high school and start a new chapter in their lives, the timing is right for a little nose reshaping. College is exciting and intimidating at the same time, but with their new nose, they can start college without that extra self-conscious or insecure feeling.

In Our 20’s:

Women’s bodies are typically fully developed at this age and as we look in the mirror, we may desire a fuller chest to balance with our hips. Again, because appearance is so important at this age, a breast enhancement procedure can help boost confidence.

In Our 30’s:

We start to notice our metabolism slowing down, so weight is harder to lose and fat starts to show up in different and unwanted areas! Liposuction is a popular procedure at this age for both men and women.

In Our 40’s:

Aging has kicked in. We look in the mirror and notice the early signs of aging around our eyes. Where did that extra skin come from that has made it impossible to wear eyeliner anymore!?! Upper eyelid surgery is typically the “go to” procedure in our 40’s because the recovery is quick and the results are very positive.

In Our 50’s:

We are feeling like we are 40 but our faces seem to be falling!! How we feel doesn’t match how we look when we look in the mirror. If you are looking for something a little more permanent than fillers to turn back the clock or if fillers have stopped doing the trick, a facelift is the next step.

Everyone ages differently. Everyone looks at themselves differently. You may not be “there” yet but when you are, look into your options and do your due diligence before jumping into anything. Plastic surgery will always be here…at any age!

Kissable Lips

images-38 Kissable Lips Newport Beach Female Plastic Surgeon | Orange CountyEveryone wants kissable lips. Read on to learn what you can do to make your lips irresistible. Remember to keep your lips moisturized! It’s easy to forget to take care of them until it’s too late when they are already chapped, cracked and painful. Drink water. Stay hydrated. Try to wear a lip balm with sunscreen in it everyday because, believe it or not, licking your lips can make them more dry! Use a sugar scrub for your lips to gently exfoliate the dead skin off once or twice a week and no matter how tempting, don’t pick the dry skin off! As we age, our lips lose volume and start to get thinner and thinner. Luckily, we have fillers like Juvederm or Restylane Silk to plump them back up. One more thing to keep in mind…repetitive movement can create wrinkles so although we all love to use straws, you may start to see new little “smoker’s lines” showing up when you’re not even puckering! This is the hardest one…use a straw and risk a new line or don’t use a straw and stain your pearly whites?! Filler to the rescue again…use just a little and watch those pesky lines disappear!! Going to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who won’t let you overfill your lips is the key to looking natural, refreshed and youthful.
