Facelifts can be performed by any surgeon, but for superior results, it’s best to consult an experienced plastic surgeon with thousands of hours in the operating room doing facelifts. Here’s a video that can help with your decision. Watch it here.
Our best facelift candidates are realistic about expectations, strictly follow the pre-and post-operative instructions and seek consultations with several plastic surgeons. Chemistry and trust are an important part of the equation, as are personality and bedside manner. It’s a good idea to look at a surgeon’s before and after photos of clients who have had facelifts.
Here are some other helpful tips if you’re contemplating a facelift.
- Gather information and learn about the benefits and risks of the procedure.
- It’s easy to think that plastic surgery will solve all your problems or make you look like a movie star. Understanding the limitations of surgery is essential for overall satisfaction with your results.
- Facelifts are not covered by insurance, so make sure you understand all the charges involved. Your doctor may offer financing options.
- Make sure you understand the risks and complications of surgery.
Get started by requesting a consultation online. We’d love to help you decide if a facelift is right for you.
Marina Plastic Surgery is collecting new and gently worn bras of all sizes to donate to Breast Oasis, a nonprofit founded by John Pedersen, M.D. Breast Oasis is dedicated to supporting communities by providing teens and women who may not be able to afford them with clean, certified, gently used bras.
“There are thousands of women in our own community and across the country who have a tough time affording even basic essentials, such as bras,” Charlie Sheridan, our Practice Manager says. “Simply choose the clean, lightly used or new bras that you would like to donate, and bring it to the donation box at Marina Plastic Surgery. You don’t have to be a client of ours to donate.
“With all the awareness about breast surgery and breast size in our cosmetic practice, it’s a perfect and natural fit to collect these garments and donate them to Breast Oasis,” Charlie said. “We proudly display two collection stations all year long. We get the bras professionally cleaned and package them nicely, and we’ll even include a personal note for the recipient.”
For more information, call 310-827-2653or “Chat with Charlie” here.
Our most popular posts have been about tummy tucks, so we are excited to share this article called, “8 Things You Should Know About a Tummy Tuck From Someone Who Got One.” You’ve worked hard to lose weight and to improve your muscle tone through diet and exercise programs. But when you have reached your desired weight but not your desired shape, it may be time to consider a tummy tuck. Our patients choose this procedure when they are having trouble achieving a flat and toned tummy appearance.
Now that you’ve dropped the pounds, you’ve also dropped the skin – it probably hangs on your belly and creates an unflattering look. And no matter how many crunches you do, you just can’t seem to get those abdominal muscles anywhere near a six-pack. Without the help of plastic surgery, you might be stuck. No creams will lift lax tummy skin, no amount of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, and oftentimes even the healthiest diet will not be able to reduce certain fat deposits along the abdominal wall. Only abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) at Marina Plastic Surgery can help you address these problem areas sufficiently.
You can find out a lot about the procedure, read patient comments and get a private consultation by clicking here.
I’m looking forward to seeing you and being able to serve your personal plastic surgery needs. Thanks for following our blog!

I’m looking forward to sharing some exciting developments in the plastic surgery and aesthetic field with you in 2016. Everyone loves before and after photos of procedures, so I plan to share more of those with you this year. They tell success stories that mere words cannot convey.
First up are our CoolSculpting successes of which there are hundreds, if not thousands. Marina Plastic Surgery has more CoolSculpting machines than anyone else in the world! The basic treatment uses cold to freeze fat and kill the fat cells. It works on stomachs, love handles, double chins, thighs, upper arms, bra fat, etc. You can read more about it here.
Here are some great photos that tell personal success stories.
Rachael’s client is a 26 year-old female who was uncomfortable in her bathing suit because of her “love handles.” She was treated three times on each side of her flanks with CoolSculpting and the patient is THRILLED with her results. She is now “Bikini Ready!”
The mother of the bride wanted to trim down her tummy to look amazing at her daughter’s wedding. After Paulette’s treatment with CoolSculpting, the client is very pleased!
And how about these stunning upper arm flab disappearing act with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is perfect for guys as well. Paulette treated this male client who listens to ESPN radio. He heard the guys talking about CoolSculpting and wanted to try it because he is concerned about his abdomen. He is so happy after seeing his results and definitely wants to be an inspiration to others.
Photos don’t lie and they tell great personal success stories. If you are interested in finding out more about CoolSculpting, please call the office at 877-298-9915 to see if CoolSculpting is right for you.
Happy New Year! WGS
