Improve the Appearance of Your Neck With or Without Surgery
Mar 9, 2017 By Dr. Anita Sethna

Weakened muscles and sagging skin under your chin, otherwise known as “turkey neck,” is one of the most common complaints I hear from patients. The neck is an area that often changes significantly with age — starting as early as your 40s. Despite weight loss and good skincare routines, many men and women are unhappy with the appearance of their neck and are determined to find a way to improve it.

Treating aesthetic neck issues

Aging in the neck takes on multiple forms, and each may require different treatments. Every person is anatomically and texturally unique, so what works for your friend may not work for you. It’s important to have an in-depth discussion with a reputable cosmetic surgeon to determine what solution is right for you. Prevention is key Prevention is the best cure. Good skincare in your 20s and 30s can certainly impact the appearance of your neck in [...]

Breast Implants or a Lift: Which is Right for Me?
Feb 10, 2017 By Felmont Eaves, III, MD, FACS

It’s not uncommon for women to feel dissatisfied with their breasts. Whether your breasts didn’t develop as you’d hoped or you’re unhappy with changes from aging, pregnancy or weight loss, there are many options for helping you achieve a breast size and shape you can enjoy.

First, Pinpoint the Real Issue

Zeroing in on which aspect bothers you — your breast volume or position — will help you choose the best procedure(s) to get the results you want. And, it’s not always as straightforward as it sounds. For example, you can’t assume you need to add volume if your breasts don’t project like they used to, even after extreme weight loss. A breast lift could very well give you the look you want.

So how do you pinpoint the real issue? I make this simple suggestion to all my patients to help determine if they’re truly unhappy with the size of their breasts:

Blepharoplasty: Eyelid Surgery and Recovery Explained
Jan 13, 2017 By Gabriele C. Miotto, MD, MEd

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can make you look years younger. Nonsurgical options include hyaluronic acid and fat injections.People often refer to eyes as windows to the soul. In fact, our eyes do provide lots of information about our emotional state. According to Psychology Today, we can tell a genuine from a fake smile by looking at a person's eyes. The mouth shape of a smile is easy to fake—we do it all the time out of politeness. But our eyes are usually the giveaway. The area around our eyes (the periocular area) also plays a crucial role in how we express ourselves and communicate with others. Aging in this area can change how others see us and can mean the difference between being seen as “bright-eyed” or tired. As we get older, our eyelid tissues become thinner and our skin loses elasticity. We may also notice more puffiness around our eyes, as well as dark circles and wrinkles. The good news is there are several options for rejuvenating the periocular area:

  • Blepharoplasty
