Too Hot To Hide Your Aging Neck or Double Chin

NYC Plastic Surgeon Introduces Laser Neck Lift with Immediate Results and No Scarring

Laser Neck Lift(New York, NY) Having an aging neck, oftentimes referred to as “turkey neck,” or even a fleshy double chin can make people feel very self-conscious.  As summer is creeping up upon us, it’s inevitably time to put away the turtleneck sweaters and scarves which so many use as a crutch to hide an unsightly neck.  Until now, a neck lift was quite an invasive surgery involving the removal of excess skin and altering neck muscles. It also resulted in long “tell-tale” scars around the ears.  Now with the introduction of Dr.  Schulman’s Laser Neck Lift, necks can be lifted, tightened and smoothed with a minimally invasive procedure that elicits immediate results, minimal downtime, and no scarring.

The Importance of Sunscreen (yes even in March!)

Dr-Schulmans-Sunscreen

There are studies that show that 90% of skin aging is from external factors. You can just imagine how many of those external factors are sun related. That is why it is crucial to wear sun protection 365 days a year, not just in the summer months. Whenever there is sunlight, there are damaging UVA rays. Most people think that if their skin isn’t burning, there is no damage being done. An easy thing to remember is that UVA rays are the “aging” rays and are occuring year round, all day long. These rays penetrate through windows and even some clothing, so even if you’re not outside, you still need to protect yourself. UVB rays are “burning” rays and are strongest during summer months.

How to get natural-looking breasts with rapid recovery – Short Scar Botox-Assisted Breast Augmentation

As a specialist in cosmetic breast surgery, I perform a large number of breast augmentations. While over 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the U.S. in 2011, not all of them were good ones. Breast Augmentations may appear easy to do, as evidenced by the countless poorly trained and inappropriate doctors trying to do this surgery. However, breast augmentation is very difficult to do really well and the revision rate for breast augmentation remains very high nationally. In my practice, I strive for natural-results, minimal complications, and a rapid recovery. I have created a technique for breast augmentation that I think helps me to achieve my goals. While perfection is impossible, I think I get pretty close. Read more

2012: Kate Moss is out, Kim Kardashian is in

Kim-Vs-KateIn the 1990s, Kate Moss was one of the most popular models, gracing runways and magazines across the world. Her waifish figure made her a highly desirable, and controversial model.

In particular, they requested liposuction of the buttocks to give a small, flat backside.

What causes capsular contracture after breast implant augmentation

Capsular Contracture is commonly referred to as “hardening of the implant”, but it this is a total misnomer. There is normally a soft capsule that forms around a breast implant, but when this capsule becomes thickened and hard, it is considered abnormal and is called Capsular Contracture or CC. CC will essentially “squeeze” the underlying breast implant. There are varying severities of CC and can range from simply slight hardening to a painful and grossly distorted breast implant. The treatment is very difficult and complex so much like anything, the key is prevention.
