plastic surgeon nyc

Most people find that full lips are most attractive, which is why lip fillers have become an increasingly popular and simple way to enhance the lips and create greater symmetry within the face. The aging process tends to take a toll on the lip and mouth area, causing the pigment of the upper lip to fade. In addition to the lip pigments decreasing, collagen also decreases with age, causing a thinner lip appearance. Because of this, lip fillers are popular amongst all ages.   A lip enhancement procedure is the process of injecting a dermal filler, such as Restylane, into …

Are you tired of that extra-unwanted fat hanging from your body? Is your muffin top getting the best of you? Liposuction may be right for you! The purpose behind liposuction is to safely get to the fatty residue layered between skin and muscle, which is known as subcutaneous fat. This surplus fat is pumped out with a suction from the area of the body requested by the individual, leaving behind miniature tunnels that then collapse, leading to the body shape you wish for. Small incisions are made in the skin and a cannula is inserted into the fat pocket. The …

Lobe-plasty (ear lobe reduction) NYC

by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | June 26, 2018, 5:37 p.m.

 Earlobe reduction is a standard surgical procedure that's done to fix big, pendulous earlobes that lots of patients find cluttered. This may be a hereditary illness or even in some scenarios, aging may bring on drooping earlobes. For adults or children, the earlobes aren't really detected unless they prefer to wear earrings that usually attract attention to their own ears. Earrings may get caught on clothes, which cause injuries to potentially happen and trigger the earlobes to tear. If this occurs the tear can be sewn together but it may result in a more droopy appearance of the earlobes. Along …

plastic surgeon nyc

An Otoplasty is performed on ears that are overly large, stick out too far from the head, or ear deformities. These issues are very common but might lead to self-consciousness and other psychological ramifications. Adults wish for an otoplasty for the very exact reasons parents seek cosmetic ear surgery for their young kids. The significant distinction is normally the feelings behind the decision: adults are generally seeking to improve self-esteem following decades of feeling humiliated by ear abnormalities, even while kids normally have otoplasty done to help prevent potential bullying in school in their peers. Adults who pursue otoplasty frequently …

plastic surgeon nyc

Although both injectables help to tackle the signs of aging on the face, Botox and injectable dermal fillers provide different purposes. Injectable fillers, such as Restylane, Belotero, or Perlane, add volume to the skin to diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance. Most dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a biodegradable gel based substance. Common areas for dermal fillers to be injected include the lips, cheeks, the area between the brows, and the corners of the mouth.   Botox, on the other hand, is a type of injection made from proteins …

Preventative Botox in NYC

by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | June 26, 2018, 2:13 p.m.

No matter how much sun protection and anti-wrinkle serum is used, the effects of aging will eventually catch up to us. Rather than trying to combat a face full of wrinkles and lax skin at an older age, many people are taking preventative measures to deter the aging process. Botox injections work to relax muscles that are prone to overstimulation. By decreasing the movement in these muscles, there is little opportunity for the muscles to create wrinkles in the skin. Botox can relax the muscles in between the eyebrows so there are no fine lines, or it can relax the …

Hair loss can be a stressful condition to cope with and it can deteriorate your self image. Dr. Kassir performs both follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) to restore a full head of hair. FUT is a technique that utilizes a linear incision on the back of the head to extract a donor site. Hair follicle grafts are precisely taken from the donor site and placed within a micro incision made on the scalp. FUE differs from FUT in that the hair follicles are individually extracted from areas of growth, therefore, no incision is made resulting in …

To understand the Vampire FaceLift and some of those other Vampire processes, we have to first have a peek at the foundation science of PRP. The very easy explanation is the anti-aging response generated within a concentrated place in the body. The specialty of this targeting procedure together with the platelet response to pseudo-micro accidents makes a complete scale retrieval operation within the goal region. The platelets are still a significant part with intense recovery properties.

plastic surgeon nyc

A surgical mini facelift concentrates on the face and jawline, a place where many women and men see the oldest signs of aging. It's here where gravity starts to take control, leading to a sagging, less defined jawline and creases across the corners of your mouth. A miniature facelift tightens the skin, redefining the jawline for a far younger-looking facial shape. The results will last for decades. Even though a surgical facelift is generally regarded as the"golden standard" for facial rejuvenation, a few patients--especially those with prior indications of aging are very happy to discover that a miniature facelift with Dr. …

by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | Nov. 10, 2017, 4:31 p.m.

Many people have negative ideas about rhinoplasties and they tend to create these misconceptions that are just completely false. For example: Many people think that only the rich can afford this procedure but in reality, plastic surgeons work with patients of all kind and try to work out payment plans that are at the patient's best convenience. Some patients believe that they will be able to get whatever nose they like but this is not completely true because doctors will tend to be honest about what nose will or won’t work on the patient's face.

Facelifts: Which Lift Is Best For Your Face

by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | Sept. 20, 2017, 9:12 a.m.

When you’re ready to hit the restart button on aging, a facelift is one of the first methods of reversing the clock that come to mind. As one of the leading forms of enhancement, a facelift uses a comprehensive approach to targeting signs of aging. There are various forms of facelifts tailored to target specific areas of concern on the face. These problem areas are as unique as the facial expressions made by each individual, so many find that one portion of their face appears to age faster than another; however, the effect has an aging effect on the entire …

  Every face has something special about it - a unique feature that identifies and distinguishes them from everyone else. From the dimples of their smile to the arch of their eyebrow, each face conveys emotions in various patterns, grooves and lines.   But as we age, these unique expressions start to become permanently etched into the soft surface of the skin, leaving some people with expressions, like anger and sadness, that they aren’t looking to show off constantly.   If you’re someone who has started noticing more defined expression lines across the forehead, around the bridge of the nose …

What To Expect After Rhinoplasty: Sensations After Surgery

by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | Sept. 12, 2017, 8:31 a.m.

Though the idea of having any facial surgery sounds terrifying, and many of us envision a world of pain afterward, surprisingly, pain is one of the most minimal aspects of this procedure. In fact, initial aesthetics (aka bruising, bandaging and stitches) tend to be more of an issue than anything else.   First day: One may experience a certain degree of pain, which mainly comes in the form of a dull, extended headache, rather than a sharp, intense pain. One will also experience concentrated pressure in the nasal/forehead region.   The first day, you’ll tend to experience significant nasal bleeding …

Aging takes a toll on our appearances in many ways, though the most commonly talked about issue is wrinkles. But one sneaky way aging rears its ugly head is, well, your head. Or rather, your hair.   As we age, many men and women suffer from hair loss and thinning. This can take a significant toll on how we feel about ourselves. Though there are topical treatments to assist in this, many do not give us ideal results, leaving us feeling like there’s really no solution other than surgery.   But there’s actually a very effective, non-invasive treatment that can …

You’ve been working hard to keep a healthy diet and maintain a regular fitness routine. Opting for kale smoothies instead of ice cream, and doing burpees instead of lounging in front of the television. But when you look in the mirror, you discover the fat pockets are still firmly attached and those dimples look even deeper on the back of your legs. With all that sweat and determination, you’d be reaping the benefits by now, not contemplating hibernating the summer away.   Unfortunately, this can be incredibly frustrating. Hormonal shifts and genetic instructions tell your body where and how your …
