Why Do I Need to Quit Smoking Before Plastic Surgery?

Most people are aware that smoking is bad for their health. However, potential plastic surgery candidates should understand the unique risks tobacco products may pose for their recovery. Good blood flow to the tissues is an essential part of the body’s natural healing process. Since nicotine can disrupt blood flow by constricting the blood vessels, tobacco products may significantly prolong or delay proper healing. The risks of smoking in the weeks before and after plastic surgery may include: Reduced blood flow to healing tissues Higher chance of infection Blood clots The need for more pain medication Pulmonary complications Extended recovery time In addition, many patients choose to undergo plastic surgery to look more youthful. Tobacco products are known to accelerate the natural aging process and... Continue Reading

CoolSculpting® For Men

Most men know a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen are key components to maintaining a toned, athletic looking body. However, even very active men who eat a diet consisting of lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates may find their body stores pockets of stubborn fat in certain areas. The lower abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), and sometimes the chest are common areas of the body where men may feel they are carrying a little extra weight that prevents their exercise and diet efforts from being fully seen. To help these men achieve the definition they are striving for, CoolSculpting® can be used to eliminate this layer of excess fat. Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® are already at or near their ideal weight and seek... Continue Reading

What Age Is Best for Facelift Surgery?

Is there such a thing as the perfect age for a facelift? The truth is there may be an ideal age range for each individual, but there is no specific age that is right for everyone. Our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, emphasizes that cosmetic procedures should be customized to suit the unique anatomic needs and aesthetic goals of the patient, including a facelift. Designed to reduce excess fat and skin, tighten muscles, and minimize the appearance of other common signs of aging, a facelift will provide the greatest benefit when performed by a skilled physician, regardless of your age. Most of our patients undergo facelift surgery in their 50s, but some people have this procedure as early as their 40s and others... Continue Reading

What Are the Benefits of Upper and/or Lower Eyelid Surgery?

The eyes are often the first area of the face to start showing signs of aging. Eyelid skin can begin to sag, fatty tissue can build up, and the result can be a face that appears tired or sad. Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, can address these issues and help you regain a more rested and youthful look. Our extensively trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, offers the most advanced techniques available, and he’s renowned for his natural-looking results. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. If most of your concerns are relegated to either the upper or lower lids, it may make sense to focus your treatment there. Many patients, however, have signs of aging... Continue Reading

Liposuction or Tummy Tuck: How Do I Know Which Is More Appropriate?

For many patients, the lower abdomen often remains a major cosmetic concern in spite of a healthy diet and routine exercise. When you spend a significant amount of time and energy eating well and working out, frustration at stubborn pockets of fat or lingering excess skin can develop. Fortunately, our extensively trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, offers two body contouring procedures that can effectively create the silhouette you have been working toward. If there is a layer of fat around your midsection that seems resistant to traditional methods of weight loss, liposuction may be the ideal procedure.

After Tummy Tuck Surgery: What Will My Scars Look Like?

An abdominoplasty—more commonly called a tummy tuck—is designed to eliminate excess skin around the midsection as well as tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. An incision is made from one hip to the other to achieve a flatter stomach, repair stretched or torn muscles beneath the skin, and redrape the remaining skin. Although most patients are ultimately very happy with their tummy tuck results, prospective patients are often nervous about the placement and appearance of the scar. During the consultation process, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will review your expectations as well as perform a physical exam to give you an idea of where the incision will be placed. By making the surgical incision low on the abdomen, the resulting scar can typically... Continue Reading
