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. Also used to slim areas of the body such as the arms, chin, flanks (hips), or knees, liposuction often can effectively remove unwanted fat for a... Continue Reading

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

Am I Too Old for Breast Implants?

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures — in fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently reported that it is still the #1 cosmetic surgery procedure, with 279,143 breast augmentations performed in 2015. Unfortunately, some women interested in breast enhancement might perceive it as a procedure only younger women undergo, and therefore avoid it. However, the truth is that there is no age limit when it comes to breast augmentation. Candidacy is actually determined by other factors, such as the patient’s overall health. While a patient’s age does not necessarily disqualify them from receiving breast implants, it can sometimes affect their aesthetic goals — for example, a younger patient is likely to be mostly concerned with increasing their...

Will Breast Implants Interfere with Mammograms?

This question is a common concern among women interested in breast augmentation, but you can rest assured knowing that a mammogram can be effectively completed on breasts with implants. Experienced radiologists can examine an augmented breast by using specialized techniques, but the specific method used will depend on the breast implant placement (above or below the pectoral muscle). “Implant displacement” is typically the best approach for patients who have breast implants that are below the chest muscle. Using this method, the radiologist can push the implant back along the patient’s chest wall while pulling the breast tissue forward to capture four images (in addition to the four standard x-ray views). In some rare cases, the implants might continue to obstruct the views too much. In... Continue Reading

When Should I Consider a Mommy Makeover?

First of all, what is a Mommy Makeover? This procedure combines multiple cosmetic enhancement techniques to help restore the body to its pre-pregnancy figure. Breast lift and tummy tuck surgery typically will be included, and breast augmentation, liposuction, and/or facial rejuvenation can be added to further enhance the result. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, our board certified plastic surgeon, customizes Mommy Makeover surgery to suit the unique needs and goals of each woman. Many women, although delighted to be mothers, are unsatisfied with how their bodies have transformed in the maternity process. Common concerns like sagging or deflated breasts and abdominal skin and muscle laxity often resist traditional means of improvement, including diet and exercise. A Mommy Makeover, however, is designed to treat these specific issues.... Continue Reading
