New Year BLog

I will begin by sharing one of my all-time favorite quotes, by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Write it on your heart that EVERY DAY is the best day in the year.”

Most importantly, I want to say THANK YOU for taking time from your busy day to read what I write :)

I find it extremely apropos that today I decided to share a list of questions that I was recently asked, about trends in our industry. Here are those questions, and my answers, below. ENJOY!

1. What is the latest trend with breast augmentation?

Bigger is NOT better! While more ‘tush-cush’ is all the rage, larger augmented-breasts are not. Breast augmentation sizes are typically getting smaller – including the nipple. The new “it” body type is lean yet curvy, for those wishing to change their shape and size. …Another reason why Breast Reduction, and Implant exchange (for smaller ones) are on the rise!

2. What is a “Walk-in, Walk-out procedure?”

This typically refers to a simple office treatment that offers less recovery time than surgical options would. With the demand for less down-time, manufacturers of lasers and light-source therapies have developed revolutionary treatments that are quick, safe, and easily performed as an in-office treatment. They will never replace the results that one can obtain from a surgical procedure, but they will certainly “turn back the hands of time” in a natural, gentle manner! (A perfect example: Ultherapy vs. Facelift )

3. What is new in weight loss?

If your New Year’s Resolution included weight loss, you may wish to consider the NEW Obalon Balloon System! We are proud to be the first practice in the United States to offer this amazing swallowable, FDA-approved program. In fact, we are offering 2 FREE OBALON OPEN-HOUSE EVENTS (1/10 & 1/18) at our office. JUST CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR OUR EVENT ON 1/10 OR CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR 1/18! Studies prove that people are more successful when they take care of themselves, look their best, and nurture their souls. I always say: “When we feel better about ourselves, we perform better in all aspects of our lives, both at home and at work”.

4. Is there help for hair loss?

Yes! NeoGraft hair replacement for men and women is the answer. NeoGraft Automated Hair Transplantation system is a leading edge technology for men and women looking to restore their hairline using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to gently remove the individual follicles from the back of the head (the “donor area”) in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs. The follicles are then artistically implanted in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred to complement the facial structure and current hairline, resulting in a discrete, natural-looking hair transplant. This is a life changing experience that leaves you feeling confident forever.

5. Is there any million dollar secret to improve cellulite?

Yes! CELLFINA is the first procedure of its kind. A simple, in-office treatment that reduces cellulite! What’s the catch? It’s not for everyone. You need to first be examined to determine if you are an actual candidate. If so, one office visit will do the trick…no surgery, no anesthesia. Here’s to sharing a million dollar secret for all women! With Cellfina, you can finally say ‘good-bye’ to cellulite, and ‘hello’ to higher hemlines!

6. What were the most popular treatments performed in your office in 2016?

Surgical: Non-Surgical:
√ The ‘Natural Neck & Facelift’ √ CoolSculpting
√ 360 Degree Mommy Makeover √ Botox + Fillers
√ Drain-less Tummy Tuck √ Halo & Contour Laser
√ Gummy Bear Breast Implants √ HydraFacial + MicroPen Needling
√ Brazilian Butt-Lifts √ Vaginal Rejuvenation


It is such a blessing to be part of an industry that changes so many lives for the better! I often think about a study published in April of 2015 (JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery) that found women who underwent facial rejuvenation surgery were perceived to be not only more attractive but also more likeable than they were before the surgery. Why? The surgeries caused the women’s resting facial expressions to appear happier, which in turn led people to believe that they were more likeable. That led to improved self-confidence which in turn caused the outer appearance to reflect this characteristic. Basically…when you look good, you feel good! Appreciation of one’s self has a very positive effect. Plastic surgery and medical-spa treatments easily improve a person’s appearance and well-being, and improve his or her self-image. Positive self-confidence is the immune system of the spirit!

Nourish your spirit by taking care of yourself, love who you are, and cherish your individuality
