FACEtite: Dramatic Anti-Aging Results Without Surgery!

At some point, every single person finds themselves beginning a journey on the anti-aging trail. Whether as a forward thinking teenager consciously applying sunscreen, or as a mid-thirties individual going for preventative botox treatments, or as a senior citizen ready to say goodbye to those jowls that recently appeared!

When entering the realm of anti-aging, it can be intimidating trying to weigh the pros and cons of each type of procedure, but there are a few big factors to certain surgeries or procedures that make them front-runners as your choice for anti-aging, particularly in the facial rejuvenation arena. FACEtite is one of these; it is able to produce a youthful result without a major, invasive surgery! If your interest is piqued (and we bet it is), read on!

Zero Surgery

Opt for the groundbreaking non-surgical alternative with dramatic anti-aging results.

What Is FACEtite?

FACEtite is a relatively new to the market procedure that harnesses the amazing benefits of radio-frequency energy to both tighten and add definition to the skin. A FACEtite procedure is minimally invasive, as it uses technology that requires only small incisions to be made to transmit waves of radio-frequency energy at the areas you are seeking to target.

FACEtite has a huge advantage over many other cosmetic procedures because it is able to achieve results that are equal to, if not greater, than other invasive surgical procedures. The outcome of your FACEtite procedure is enjoyed more quickly as the recovery time is generally less than a week, although the results will continue improving over time.

The Most Advanced Facial Contouring & Refinement Procedure.

What Can You Expect Your FACEtite Procedure to Look Like?

Before your actual procedure takes place, it is important to meet with your doctor for an initial consultation, during which you will be able to discuss your goals, assess your starting point, go over any potential side effects or risks. Be sure your doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.

When the big day finally arrives, you and your doctor will have established a rapport and he or she will know exactly the plan of action for your FACEtite procedure.  A local anesthetic will be administered to reduce discomfort, and then tiny incisions will be made. This allows the hand piece to be inserted, with one probe beneath and one probe on the surface of your skin. Waves of radio-frequency energy will be passed between these two probes. This energy will liquefy fat cells, reduce sagging or wrinkling skin, as well as simultaneously signal the collagen production to kick into high gear.

Distinctive Jawline

Restore your youthful jawline and look years younger.

The fat is then suctioned out of the face by way of a small cannula, leaving the targeted areas smooth, toned, and contoured once again.

What Does Recovery From FACEtite Look Like?

Again, one of the factors that causes FACEtite to stand out in the anti-aging crowd is that it is minimally invasive, which means not only is general anesthesia unnecessary, the incisions made are so insignificant that many patients are able to carry on with their normal lives immediately. The radio-frequency treatment will cause your skin to tighten and smooth instantly, so results will be evident right away. However, it is important to expect a certain level of swelling that will subside. One of the biggest benefits of FACEtite is the increase in collagen production, which is a gradual process that will bear fruit over the next six to twelve months.

The radio-frequency treatment will cause your skin to tighten and smooth instantly, so results will be evident right away.

How Long Will Your Amazing FACEtite Results Last?

How long your FACEtite outcome remains to rejuvenate and revitalize your face varies from person to person. Your attentiveness to a skin care regimen, healthy diet and exercise, stage of life, and natural skin quality all will impact how long your results remain, but for some they last up to 5 years! Make sure you speak with your doctor about how best to care for your newly contoured face to ensure that your outcomes are long-lasting.

Dramatic Results

Paula Abdul swears by FACEtite to keep her stunning, and so should you!

Sound Like FACEtite Is the Perfect Option For You? It Probably Is!

Does FACEtite sound too good to be true? All of the amazing anti-aging benefits with none of the pain, time off for recovery, and scarring? FACEtite is the real deal, and if you are interested in giving new life to your facial features, talk to a doctor you trust about starting your experience with FACEtite.

FEMtite: The Groundbreaking Vaginal Rejuvenation Processhttps://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/femtite-the-groundbreaking-vaginal-rejuvenation-process/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=femtite-the-groundbreaking-vaginal-rejuvenation-process Mon, 16 Mar 2020 20:08:47 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2619

FEMtite: The Groundbreaking Vaginal Rejuvenation Process

For women everywhere, vaginal rejuvenation can seem like an intimidating subject.  That is why FEMtite is a groundbreaking new option for women considering vaginal rejuvenation.

FEMtite is a non-invasive, non-surgical, nearly pain-free procedure that reduces overly large labia, which can be the root cause of discomfort during exercise, daily life activities such as sitting or wearing tight clothing, and intimacy.

Restore Your Feminine Side

There's no longer a reason to settle for pain or discomfort.

What Is FEMtite?

FEMtite is a new, minimally invasive vaginal treatment that is able to produce the effects of a labiaplasty. 

FEMtite is able to reduce the size of the labia by using a device that emits radio-frequency waves of energy. This device transmits energy between two small metal probes, one of which is inserted in a tiny incision below the skin, while the other probe skims the surface. The beams of energy shrink the skin in their path immediately.

How Quick is The Recovery From This Vaginal Rejuvination Process?

Compared to a traditional labiaplasty, the recovery time from FEMtite amounts to almost nothing. Most patients require less than three days of recovery; some require a bit longer, depending on how significant the reduction will be. While a traditional labiaplasty requires a lengthy amount of time to care for sutures (meaning a long hiatus from sexual intimacy), you will be able to resume all normal activities soon after your FEMtite procedure. Your doctor will go over your exact recovery care prescriptions, and establish a timeline for all levels of activity post-procedure.

Welcome To The Future

Female struggles no longer need to be secret. Dr. Vinyard and the VIPS nurses can help!

Who Is a Good Candidate For FEMtite?

FEMtite vaginal rejuvenation is a completely personal decision; if you are suffering physical irritation or emotional discomfort as a result of the size of your labia, then it may be time to seek help.

FEMtite is best for women who are done having children, as pregnancy and childbirth can have an affect on your outcome.

A vaginal rejuvenation is a completely personal decision; if you are suffering physical irritation or emotional discomfort as a result of the size of your labia, then it may be time to seek help.

What Are The Risks of FEMtite?

FEMtite has almost no side-effects or risks, when administered by a professional, board-certified physician in medical environment. A local anesthetic will be administered to reduce any discomfort during the procedure; an adverse reaction to anesthesia is possible. Minor swelling, tightness of the skin, or irritation is a completely normal experience within the first few days after your vaginal rejuvenation process.

Minor swelling, tightness of the skin, or irritation is a completely normal experience within the first few days after your vaginal rejuvenation process.

No Matter What Stage Of Life You're In...

FEMtite improves the quality of life for women, regardless of whether they're in college or retirement.

How Long Will Your FEMtite Results Last?

FEMtite results are different for each and every client; your doctor will discuss how long you can expect your outcome to remain. Generally, the results last for years, particularly if you are attentive to maintaining a healthy weight. For most patients, one treatment will address the issues of one area permanently.

One of the amazing side-benefits of FEMtite is that it is a gift that keeps on giving: for up until six months after you receive your FEMtite treatment, results will continue to improve. Clients generally experience optimal results after twelve weeks, although there will be a noticeable change immediately following your vaginal rejuvenation.

Don't Suffer In Silence: Ask For FEMtite Today

If you or someone you love is wrestling with loving themselves in their own skin, this miraculous new option for reducing excess skin is the perfect choice. With little to no downtime, instant results, and no major surgery, FEMtite is an incredible solution for women everywhere.

Hit a Fat Loss Plateau? BODYtite Might Be Right For You!https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/hit-a-fat-loss-plateau-bodytite-might-be-right-for-you/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=hit-a-fat-loss-plateau-bodytite-might-be-right-for-you Wed, 11 Mar 2020 19:42:40 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2610

Hit a Fat Loss Plateau? BODYtite Might Be Right For You!

There comes a point in almost every man or woman’s life when they find themselves pondering that ever-troubling conundrum: “how to lose excess fat?”. Perhaps you feel that you are at the end of your rope; you’ve tried all the diets and weight-loss eating plans, you’ve counted things you didn’t even know existed, you’ve exercised and attended 5am spin classes religiously, you’ve gone for walks, changed your habits, and yet, you still haven’t achieved the fat loss you’re striving for.

Sadly, this tale is extremely common. There are certain areas of the body, varying from person to person, where excess fat pools, and then refuses to budge. No matter how hard you work out or how disciplined you are about your eating choices, some fat needs a little outside attention. If this discouraging place is where you find yourself today, then BODYtite may be the solution to bring you hope.

Fighting Against Stubborn Fat?

Sometimes our bodies just need a little boost to be as gorgeous as we'd like.

What Is BODYtite?

BODYtite is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or large scarring. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging. BODYtite uses RFAL (radio-frequency Assisted Lipolysis) technology that addresses some of the shortcomings associated with traditional liposuction or surgical body lifts.

What areas can BODYtite treat?

If you can imagine it, you can do it: stomach, arms, chest, knees and inner/outer thighs are some of the most common treatment zones. Multiple areas can be treated in one visit. 

Love Your Own Skin

There's no reason to feel self-conscious. BODYtite your way to a body you adore.

How quickly will I see results?

Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up to 12 months. With BODYtite treatment times are faster than any other energy based on the market. 

One Procedure. Significant, long-lasting results.

What Does Recovery From BODYtite Look Like?

Because BODYtite does not require large incisions, there is little to no scarring, no general anesthesia, and a much speedier recovery! The result is smooth, tightened skin, that can be enjoyed and shown off in a matter of days.

For the first couple of days following your procedure, there may be some stiffness, soreness, and swelling, but this will quickly dissipate within the first week. Some potential side-effects from BODYtite are bruising, redness, sensitivity, and swelling, which will resolve themselves fairly speedily.

One of the Best Tummy Tucks in Florida! Are You A Candidate?https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/one-of-the-best-tummy-tucks-in-florida-are-you-a-candidate/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=one-of-the-best-tummy-tucks-in-florida-are-you-a-candidate Mon, 09 Mar 2020 08:04:11 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2572

One of the Best Tummy Tucks in Florida! Are You A Candidate?

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the name “Florida”? Perhaps you think of a certain amusement park run by a small mouse with large ears. Maybe the image of retirees flocking to beaches armed with lounge chairs while their front yards fill up with snow. While plastic surgery may not be the first thought that pops into your head, one of the best board certified plastic surgeons specializing in tummy tucks happens to be in Florida, and it just might be worth your while to add a trip there to your vacation plans.

Love Your Body Again

Don't let time get the best of your body. Fight back with a Tummy Tuck to restore your stunning shape.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

An abdominoplasty (more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck) is a cosmetic procedure that removes both excessive fat and skin, repairs weak muscles, and contours the whole abdominal region, resulting in a slimmer, more toned profile. This is done through a surgery that is performed under a general anesthetic. Once all the excess tissue has been removed, the skin is pulled taut and sutured back together, and the belly button is reoriented as needed.

What Is Recovery from a Tummy Tuck Like?

Recovery from a tummy tuck can last anywhere from two to four weeks. The first week or two will require a significant amount of downtime, so make sure you plan for adequate time off and potential assistance during this time. Directly following your procedure, your abdomen will be wrapped in a compression garment and bandages, and you may receive drain tubes to allow any swelling to drain. Your doctor will go over any prescription medications you may need, recovery care, and signs to look out for around the surgical site.

Improve Your Confidence

Feel confident and comfortable - no matter what you choose to wear out in the sun.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tucks are ideal for individuals who are struggling to lose that “pooch”, despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle with adequate exercise, healthy diet, and a steady weight.

You are an ideal candidate if you are ready to bid the belly goodbye because it’s what YOU want, not because an outside image is pressuring you. You are a perfect candidate if you have realistic expectations of the surgery outcomes. You are a wonderful candidate for a tummy tuck if you are ready to have increased self-esteem, higher levels of confidence, and expanded quality of life.

Ideal candidates will have a fairly consistent weight, healthy diet, and regularly engage in moderate exercise.

Answers To Your 23 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation: Part 1https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/23-most-asked-questions-about-breast-augmentation-part-1/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=23-most-asked-questions-about-breast-augmentation-part-1 Sat, 07 Mar 2020 08:11:14 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=1813

Answers To Your 23 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation: Part 1

Do you ever wish you had a best friend, or older sister who had gone through a breast augmentation surgery and was ready and willing to answer every single question you might have? If that’s the case, then read on, because this two-part article will cover 23 of the most commonly asked questions about breast augmentation surgery, so chances are any queries you may have will be answered here!

1. How Can I Find a Doctor I Trust?

This is easily one of the most important factors that will break or make your surgery and results. Google and crowd-sourcing is a good way to come up with a list of names, and then dig deeper on the surgeons you discover to ascertain if they are board-certified, professional, affordable, and are someone you trust. If you aren’t able to learn this from calling or browsing their website, scheduling an initial consultation may be helpful.

2. Are There Different Types of Breast Augmentation Surgeries?

Absolutely! Depending on what your goal is, you may choose one or more different surgeries. The options are breast lifts, breast reductions, or breast implants. For example, if you are looking for both lift and volume, a breast lift and implant surgery will be the route you’d likely take.

3. Are There Different Options for Breast Implants?

Yes! There are three types of volumizing options: saline implants, silicone implants, and fat transfer. Your doctor will be able to recommend the best fit for you.

Find Your Perfect Size

Dr. Vinyard can help you decide which size of implant is ideal for your body shape and size!

4. What Type of Implant Should I Get?

It all depends on your situation and your goals. Silicone implants are more similar to the natural feel of the breast tissue, while saline implants create a more firm breast.

Round implants generally create a more perky look that offers more cleavage, while tear drop shapes fill the underside of the breast more, which is a more natural aesthetic.

5. Are there Different Implant Shapes?

Yes! The shapes most often used are tear drop, and round. Round implants generally create a more perky look that offers more cleavage, while tear drop shapes fill the underside of the breast more, which is a more natural aesthetic.

6. What is Breast Augmentation By Fat Transfer?

This is one of the less-commonly known ways of increasing breast size, and yet it is incredibly advantageous and provides a natural-looking outcome. It is done by liposuctioning unwanted fat from another area of the body, liquefying it, and inserting it in the breast. This method of breast enhancement comes with the benefit of slimming down in other areas at the same time!

This is one of the less-commonly known ways of increasing breast size, and yet it is incredibly advantageous and provides a natural-looking outcome.

7. How Can I Have Realistic Expectations Of The Outcome?

Before you go for the surgery itself, your doctor will help you “try on” sizes, to help you visualize what the results will be, and to ensure that you are both on the same page. Some offices offer 3D imaging, which is an amazing way to get a sneak peek of what your newly perky breasts will look like.

A Reason to Buy that LBD You've Been Eying

You'll look better in everything when your breast size is more appropriate for your body.

8. Will I Have Scars From the Surgery?

You and your doctor will discuss where exactly incisions will be made to allow the implants to be placed, and will ensure that any potential scars are hidden as much as is possible.

9. What Side Effects Should I Expect?

The biggest threat from breast implants is the formation of scar tissue around the implant that hardens the skin tissue, which is extremely uncomfortable. Studies have revealed that less than 2% of breast augmentation patients experience this complication, and your doctor should warn you as well as discuss how this will be addressed should it occur.

10. How Much Do Breast Augmentations Cost?

1.       Depending on which implants, if you are having additional work done, and a host of other factors, the cost for your breast augmentation will vary. There are anesthesia fees, hospital fees, and medication prices as well, and these all vary depending on where you live. The best way to get an accurate idea of how much your surgery will cost is to sit down with your doctor for an initial consultation and get a personalized quote.

11. How Long Does The Surgery Take?

The surgery itself generally takes anywhere from one to three hours.

12. What Can You Expect Recovery To Look Like?

Recovery is an individualized experience, but for most patients it takes a week or two for swelling to subside. The first few days are always the most difficult, and it may be helpful to expect to be on bedrest for this initial recovery period. Your doctor will admonish you on any restrictions or prohibitions to be aware of as you recuperate.

Increase Your Confidence

Love your body and feel your self-confidence soar!

Mommy Makeovers 101: Should You Include BODYtite?https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/mommy-makeovers-101-should-you-include-bodytite/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=mommy-makeovers-101-should-you-include-bodytite Thu, 05 Mar 2020 09:17:29 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2554

Mommy Makeovers 101: Should You Include BODYtite?

While it is nearly impossible to be a postpartum woman and
not hear the words “Mommy Makeover”, a few women actually know what this
all-encompassing term truly means. Knowing what is meant by a mommy makeover
and that there are solutions out there to solving the issue of stretched out
breasts, or restoring an abdomen that has been split apart during pregnancy
(and yes, this is a thing that happens!) can be life-changing

If you or a woman you love has relinquished their body to
carry a life and bring it into this world, and is now struggling with the changes 
that have taken place as a result, a Mommy Makeover might be helpful to regain
not only your pre-baby body, but also your confidence and ability to be
comfortable in your own skin.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is the commonly tossed around term for any number of cosmetic procedures, including but not limited to breast surgery like breast reductions, lifts, or augmentation, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and BODYtite. Each of these surgeries targets a different area of the body, and depending on you and your situation, a combination of these may be fused to create your own special Mommy Makeover.

Why Should I Add BODYtite to My Mommy Makeover?

BODYtite is the perfect procedure for mamas who would like to remove excess fat and tighten up their skin, but don’t have enough that a tummy tuck is required. BODYtite is a method that contours the body by targeting fat cells with radiofrequency energy. This dissolves the fat, allowing it to be removed via suction, and simultaneously stimulates collagen production. This both reduces stubborn pockets of fat, and restores a certain level of suppleness to your skin.

Liposuction & Tighten

Opt to tighten your belly back to its gorgeous pre-baby state.

For the right candidate, BODYtite can effectively do away with that ever-defeating pooch that is the enemy of every mom without significant surgery. BODYtite can be administered through small incisions in the skin; a small probe is slipped beneath the surface and radio-frequency waves of energy are transmitted internally and externally. This procedure is minimally invasive, which allows for a shorter recovery time.

BODYtite is a wonderful option to address saggy and wrinkly skin, and shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or large scarring. 

Though this process may sound complicated, it is minimally invasive, which allows for a shorter recovery time.

What Does Recovery From BODYtite Look Like?

Because BODYtite is a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery time is fairly short. The incision sites may be slightly tender for the first week after your operation, but a full recovery should be experienced within two weeks. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up to 12 months. 

The incision sites may be slightly tender for the first week after your operation, but a full recovery should be experienced within two weeks.

Is BODYtite For You?

A consultation with Dr. Vinyard will answer all of your questions.

Why Choose BODYtite Instead of a Tummy Tuck?

If you are still unsure of the difference between an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and BODYtite, it may be helpful to break down what exactly a tummy tuck targets. A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery that tightens the muscles of the abdominal core, and removes excess skin and fat. If you are dealing with a loss of figure due to muscle-related issues such as a hernia, or diastasis recti (muscle separation), this is when a tummy tuck may be the answer.

BODYtite has much less possible risks and also less hazardous side-effects. Coagulated small blood vessels reduce blood loss as well as scarring. No invasive surgical procedure is required.

How Can You Find a Doctor You Trust to Do Your Mommy Makeover?

Adding BODYtite to your list of procedures you are considering including in your Mommy Makeover is just one step in the process, and this may feel overwhelming. It is helpful to do your own research to guide you in creating your vision of the final results you’re hoping for, and scheduling an initial consultation with a cosmetic surgeon will help you nail these goals down. Sharing your vision with your doctor, and he or she will be able to help you decide what procedures are best for you and what you can realistically expect your results to be. Ensure that your doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons; this will give you confidence knowing that your experience will be facilitated by a capable, trained, and licensed professional.

Debunking the Botox “Lip Flip” Trend: The Far Better Alternativehttps://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/debunking-the-botox-lip-flip-trend-the-far-better-alternative/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=debunking-the-botox-lip-flip-trend-the-far-better-alternative Tue, 03 Mar 2020 09:17:43 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2555

Debunking the Botox “Lip Flip” Trend: The Far Better Alternative

For even the less-avid Instagrammer, there is an emerging trend that is appearing through filtered pictures everywhere: The Insta-Pout. Kylie Jenner is the queen of the perfect lips, as well as the champion of using fillers to get them. Manufacturers noticed the thousands of women flocking to plastic surgeons and clamoring for the same plumping for their pouts, and knew they needed to come up for yet another product for this market.

But they realized they didn’t need to create an all-new product; they could simply spin one of the most popular procedures, Botox, and this is how the Botox lip flip was created. While the Botox lip flip is a potential option for clients wanting to enhance their lips, there are several other alternatives that may be far more effective at producing the long-lasting plumpness that is envisioned.

Perfect Your Pout

Opt for a safer, longer lasting treatment designed to keep you smiling.

Wait-You Can Use Botox On Lips?

You may be thinking, “Last time I checked, Botox was for wrinkles, not for lips!”, and you’re not wrong. However, as the tide of women seeking to add volume to their lips rose, the Botox Lip Flip appeared as a contender on the lip filler market. The Botox lip flip works by strategically injecting Botox into sections of the superficial muscles around the upper and/or lower lips, depending on which lip is being targeted. This causes the muscles to lose tension, which in turn, moves the lips to flip outwards.

Because Botox works by blocking nerve signals to muscles, if too much Botox is injected into the muscles surrounding the lips, this reduces muscular control, and by extension, lip movement. This means that only small amounts of Botox are able to be used effectively, which leads to a shorter time in between sessions.

Can Botox Add Volume to Lips?

Because the Botox Lip Flip does exactly what it’s name says: it flips the lips outward, it does not actually add volume to your lips like other cosmetic fillers do, and this is definitely something to take into account. It will produce a more subtle poutiness to the top lip, with a less defined border of the lips, and possibly less muscle movement. 

Extra Kissable!

Juvederm Volbella add actual volume to your lips. No disappointment here.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvederm Volbella is one of the most effective cosmetic fillers on the market today that is able to add plumpness to your pout without any of the undesired side effects of Botox. Juvederm is a gel containing hyaluronic acid, that is injected into the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs organically in the body that has a firming, cushioning effect on the skin and tissues around it.

Juvederm is able to add plumpness to your pout without any of the undesired side effects of Botox.

Juvederm Volbella typically lasts up to 12 months, and adds significant volume and definition to your lips. There are several different treatment options, including Juvederm Ultra XC.  Juvederm Ultra XC produces a more dramatically full lip, while Volbella will have a more subtle effect on your pout.

How Do I Know Which Lip Enhancement Option is Best For Me?

If you are unsure of which injectable filler is the best option to bring you to your vision of Insta-worthy lips, it may be helpful to sit down for an initial consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. He or she will carefully listen to the results that you are envisioning, examine your current lip situation, and recommend the best course of action. We recommend Juvederm Volbella over Botox every day of the week.

At What Age Should You Begin Preventative Botox?https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/at-what-age-should-you-begin-preventative-botox/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=at-what-age-should-you-begin-preventative-botox Sun, 01 Mar 2020 20:28:06 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2556

At What Age Should You Begin Preventative Botox?

In the past, many cosmetic procedures carried the reputation of appealing to the older crowd. It was normal to schedule a consultation only after body parts began sagging, discoloration started appearing, and wrinkles showed up in multiplying numbers. But doctors today are suggesting that there may be another angle to tackle the anti-aging issue from-and this is proactively, rather than retroactively.

Doctors are encouraging clients to consider pursuing treatment at an earlier stage, in order to prevent signs of aging from occurring, rather than waiting for them to show up and then doing something about it. Getting botox could be a part of preventing wrinkles and being comfortable in your skin, just like applying sunscreen and moisturizing well. There are countless reasons to join the hundreds of young people getting botox treatments preventatively; here are just a few.

Opt Preventative

Don't wait for the wrinkles to come to you - take the initiative.

Is Botox A Preventative Measure For Anti-Aging?

For over 20 years, Botox has been used to target wrinkles that have already appeared, but a new process has been discovered that uses Botox preventatively to stop wrinkles from being created. For most people, around their late 20s and early 30s, small fine lines begin to appear on their skin, particularly the face. These faint lines are pre-wrinkles, or evidence of future creases getting ready to settle in. This is when Botox ideally would come in.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is an FDA approved cosmetic injection that contains the toxin botulinum. This toxin works by blocking nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. These muscle contractions are what cause wrinkles to form, and thus blocking the signals that cause them eradicates wrinkles, or future wrinkles.

Cosmetic surgeons are trained to observe any muscular movements that will cause, or are causing creases to form. By precisely targeting these areas with Botox, they are able to essentially retrain the muscles to stop pulling in one way and pull the opposite way, and this results in an even result of all muscles involved.

Love Your Skin

Prevent the onset of wrinkles and ensure a longer-lasting youthful glow.

Am I A Good Candidate For Preventative Botox?

A good candidate for preventative Botox will meet several qualifications. First of all, the FDA has approved Botox use for individuals 18 years and older, so wait until your 18th birthday at least to pursue Botox!

Ideal candidates will have a fairly consistent weight, healthy diet, and regularly engage in moderate exercise. If you are a person who is extremely expressive with your face, or makes the same expressions often, like pursing of the lips or raising the eyebrows, this makes you a perfect candidate for Botox. Knowing that these expressions occur often allows your doctor to note these areas specifically, and likely this will be where he or she recommends you receive Botox to prevent wrinkles from forming.

I'm In My 20's: Is It Too Soon For Botox?

If you are considering Botox to prevent wrinkles, then it is never too early to begin! While it may not be necessary in your early 20’s, in the mid-to-late-20’s is when many creases begin to appear in the face. This fact makes this an ideal time for many to pursue Botox treatment to stop these wrinkles in their tracks before they are full-fledged lines in your face.

Never Too Late

Don't second guess whether it's "too late." Botox helps before and after wrinkles!

I'm Already 30: Have I Missed the Boat?

Don’t worry if you have passed your 30th birthday-it’s definitely not too late for you to address facial issues with Botox! Likely, few truly deep wrinkles have been formed on your face, and Botox will be able to prevent any present wrinkles from increasing or sticking around, as well as address any that may be forming. 

Don’t worry if you have passed your 30th birthday-it’s definitely not too late for you to address facial issues with Botox!

Your skin tends to be more receptive to treatments and bounce back faster the younger you are, so getting Botox sooner rather than later is always a safe bet.

How Much Does Preventative Botox Cost?

The cost of your Botox treatment will vary depending on which areas you will be targeting, and how many injections will be required. To get a quote specific for you and your situation, it is ideal to sit down in an initial consultation with your doctor. This allows him or her to professionally assess your skin and make a recommendation of a treatment tailored specifically to you and your vision for a beautifully rejuvenated, or retained face.

Preventative Botox? Sign Me Up!

Botox may be another thing to add to your list of anti-aging skin self-care to-dos, and you will not be disappointed with the results. When done by a board certified plastic surgeon, Botox can be one of the longest lasting, most effective ways to restore or retain your youthful features, and give you the confidence you crave as you age.

What IS Vaginal Rejuvenation?https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/what-is-vaginal-rejuvenation/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=what-is-vaginal-rejuvenation Thu, 27 Feb 2020 20:53:09 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2286

What IS Vaginal Rejuvenation?

If you are one of the many women who are longing for assistance with your female heath, but are nervous to take the first step of vaginal rejuvenation, you are in the right place.

If you are considering vaginal rejuvenation, any of the emotions of embarrassment, heightened self awareness, or confusion may be wandering through your mind, but never fear! Here you will find a guide to the vagina, and all of the options that are available to help restore you and your vagina to their original state of confidence and health.

A Brief Tour of Your Vagina

Just in case your Sex Ed teacher didn’t cover this thoroughly, or the years have caused distinctions to fade, allow us to take you on a brief tour of the vagina. 

Starting from the top, the area below the bikini line that pubic hairs love to populate is called the mons. Next, the outer lips of the vagina (which are often incorrectly referred to as the vagina) is the labia, or vulva. There are both the labia majora and minora, and in the center of these is the clitoral hood, which covers the clitoris. Beneath is the urethral opening and the vaginal opening itself. It is crucial to know the names for the various parts “down there” to help you discern what type of vaginal rejuvenation will target the area that you are hoping to target.

Your Options for Vaginal Rejuvenation

There are several procedures that fall under the banner of vaginal rejuvenation, each with their own specific area of expertise.

1. Labiaplasty

A labiaplasty is a reduction of the size or shape of the labia (outer vaginal lips). This surgery trims excess skin that may be the cause of pain during intercourse, irritation during exercising, or embarrassment when wearing tight garments (such as swimsuits). The labia will be restored from their stretched out form that is the result of dramatic weight loss, pregnancy, childbirth, or physical trauma.

2. Clitoral Hood Reduction

A clitoral hood reduction is another vaginal rejuvenation process. This surgery removes a pie-shaped portion of the clitoral hood, and is generally done in conjunction with a labiaplasty to restore the natural aesthetic of the vagina. Choosing to have both a labiaplasty and a clitoral hood reduction will allow the vagina to have a look that is not top heavy, but balanced.

3. Monsplasty

A monsplasty is a procedure that addresses the issue of the lower pooch. The mons (pubic hair growing region below the bikini line) tends to be an area of the body that stubbornly hangs on to pockets of fat or excess skin. The monsplasty will remove the extra tissues, and cause that area to stop drawing too much attention on account of its bulge factor.

4. Vaginoplasty

A vaginoplasty will tighten the walls and muscles of the interior of the vagina. Particularly chosen by women who have given birth and loosened up quite a bit down there, a vaginoplasty uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the muscles that contribute to sexual dysfunction and incontinence, among other things. It is also possible to remove excess skin from the back of the vagina or the exterior, to return your body to its former glory.

Which Vaginal Rejuvenation Process is For You?

Depending on your concerns, whether aesthetic or medical, once you have a good idea of the procedures offered and have pinpointed the areas you’d like to have targeted, it’s time to schedule an initial consultation. Of course, because a vaginal rejuvenation deals with such a sensitive and delicate area of the body, it is extremely important that you seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon that you fully trust.

There is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about asking for help, and there is no reason to suffer in silence. Find a doctor who you feel comfortable with, trust the discretion of, and has a solid track record. They will be able to chime in with a professional opinion on which surgery (or surgeries) are right for you. During your initial consultation, they will be able to give you an estimate on what your vaginal rejuvenation will cost, and more specifics for you and your situation.

Finding a Safe Surgeon for Your Brazilian Butt Lifthttps://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/finding-a-safe-surgeon-for-your-brazilian-butt-lift/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=finding-a-safe-surgeon-for-your-brazilian-butt-lift Tue, 25 Feb 2020 09:07:16 +0000 https://resources.plasticsurgeryvips.com/?p=2375

Finding a Safe Surgeon for Your Brazilian Butt Lift

As we near the end of winter, everyone is ready to embrace the sunshine once more. Eyes turn longingly to windows, and we start grasping at groundhogs to reassure us that Spring is coming soon! But with the advent and anticipation of Spring and Summer comes the realization that swimsuit season is part and parcel of the whole warm weather deal.

It is never too soon to start prepping for bikini bottom season, particularly if you feel you need a little help. Sometimes, despite all the squatting in the world, that booty needs a little assistance to return to its perky volume. When considering any plastic surgery, it is crucial that you do your due diligence on the doctor you’re considering to ensure that your outcome is a beautifully, naturally enhanced butt, not a botched butt job that leaves you wondering how you are going to hide your bum all summer!

Your Best Friend is Google

When searching for a plastic surgeon to perform a butt lift, there are several tests he or she needs to pass before you entrust your body’s aesthetic into their hands. Of course, the first step is networking. Since you know you are looking to get a butt lift, it can be helpful to research using the internet, to find the best doctors in the field of butt lifts, and their vicinity to you. 

If you're in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, you've already found the best option doctor wise! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Vinyard here at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery.

Obviously, the closer the surgeon’s office to you, the easier it will be to go in for appointments, but some clients prioritize going to the “best in the biz” and choose to fly out for their procedures and follow-ups. Some doctors are willing to do initial consultations and recovery check-ups over video chats, so check for that information as well.

Family Reunion, or 'Research Summit'?

Another great way of networking is asking family or friends. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and letting someone know the outcome of their plastic surgery was so amazing you’d like the name of their doctor is a surefire compliment. Conversely, it’s a good idea to quietly take note of any botched jobs that you are privy to, and to avoid those doctors.

Are They Qualified?

Once you have the names of a few doctors, it’s time to dive deep. Butt lifts are one of the most commonly botched jobs, and thus that means it is incredibly important to make sure that the doctor you are considering is a professional, qualified surgeon. Check to see that they hold a board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only plastic surgery board that is backed by the American Board of Medical Specialties. 

It can be helpful to hear the opinions and experiences of real people who have gone through the exact procedure which you're considering.

This means your doctor has been tested to see that he or she has had all the proper training, and is being held accountable to high standards. If a doctor holds this certification, they are certain to be well-trained and professional.

10/10 Would Lift Again

Another quick way to look into the plastic surgeon you’re considering to do your butt lift is to check the ratings and feedback, both on their website and on Google. It can be helpful to hear the opinions and experiences from real people who have gone through the exact procedure you are considering.

The Initial Consultation

So you’ve settled on a doctor who has received rave reviews and is properly certified: now it’s time for that initial consultation. This may feel a bit like a blind date, as this will be the time you evaluate this doctor in-person to see if they are a good fit for your butt lift.

Make Sure You Take Note Of...

So you’ve settled on a doctor who has received rave reviews and is properly certified: now it’s time for that initial consultation. This may feel a bit like a blind date, as this will be the time you evaluate this doctor in-person to see if they are a good fit for your butt lift.

Bedside Manner

Does the doctor have a professional and confident manner that you feel comfortable with, and are able to speak freely to? Do you feel heard when you express your hoped for outcome?

This may feel a bit like a blind date, as this will be the time you evaluate this doctor in-person to see if they are a good fit for your butt lift.

Office Environment

Is the office clean, neat, and relaxing, or is it hectic, haphazard, and dirty?

Attentiveness

Does your doctor listen attentively to your goals, and come up with a procedure plan that is tailored for you and your situation? Does he explain the entire process, and answer any questions you may have?

An Organic Approach

Does the doctor place an emphasis on leaving you with a natural outcome, or does he seek to leave you with a butt lift that is clearly larger than life? For some, a plastic surgery that is painfully obvious can leave you not feeling rejuvenated, but fake. Make sure you and your doctor are on the same page with the outcome of your butt lift.

Before and Afters

Ask to see before and after photos from clients who have received the butt lift you are going for. This gives you a true expectation of the outcome, and is another way of checking how experienced your doctor is with butt lifts.

Make sure to see before and after pictures from the plastic surgeon who you are considering.

Know the Risks

As with any surgery, there are potential risks involved with a Brazilian butt lift. Your doctor should carefully go over these possible risks, explaining any side effects, negative outcomes, or any other occurrences that could happen post-butt lift.

Results Of Your Dreams

A Brazilian butt lift is an amazing opportunity to rejuvenate your bum that may have lost a bit of life along the way, whether due to dramatic weight fluctuations or simply age. If you are discouraged by the way your clothes fit, and are ready to work a pencil skirt with confidence once more, it may be time to start your quest for the perfect Brazilian butt lift experience.
