Tips for a Successful Facelift

6 Sep

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.

FaceliftOur 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.

Best, WGS

Marina Plastic Surgery Requests New or Gently Used Bra Donations

27 Aug

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.

Hair Replacement Isn’t Just for Guys and Now It’s Easy!

17 Mar

one-does-not-simply-accept-hair-loss

When we think of hair loss, we imagine wigs, comb overs and the picket fence hair transplant.  These are not good choices for men, and certainly not for women with thin hair or hair loss. Enter NeoGraft.  It’s a nonsurgical, no down time, no anesthesia, no sutures hair replacement treatment.

Fifty million men and about 30 million women suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair.  Due to the current job market competition and social media buzz, awareness about hair loss seems to be at an all-time high.

NeoGraft is the first and only FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system. This revolutionary system uses pneumatic controls to precisely extract complete individual hair follicles which can be immediately transplanted to the selected areas of the scalp. The NeoGraft automated hair transplantation system is the only complete harvesting system on the market and has the only ‘NO TOUCH’ implantation technology.

We’ve been doing NeoGraft procedures at Marina Plastic Surgery now for quiwellness neograftte some time, and the results are amazing.  If you want to know more, check out this interview I did on the Wellness Hour.  You’ll find out everything you need to know about this exciting procedure.  We believe in hair today, hair tomorrow.  You can also check out our NeoGraft info on the web.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! WGS
