Breast Implant “Redo”― Helpful?

I saw two consults today who had previous breast implant surgery and came to me wanting new, bigger breast implants. During these discussions at my Denver practice, it became evident that both women thought that changing their implants ("re-doing" their augmentation surgery) would improve their breast shape. It doesn't. Changing implants, called an implant exchange, simply removes the …

The Key to Your Best Results

The topic of cosmetic surgery seems to be a fertile playing ground for fun and interactive blogging. That was my thinking when this site was initially created; however, I have fallen short of actually posting. So... I now publicly (although to few, if any readers for now) challenge myself to jump start what I feel …

I’m OK Being “Plan B”

Earlier this week, I spent a half hour discussing plastic surgery in my Denver, CO, office with one of those interesting, confident, has-her-act-together patients who help make my job fun. She was seeing me for concerns she had with her abdomen and thighs, which were somewhat fuller than she would have preferred, and she had a …

A Plea for Honesty About Cohesive Implants

There continues to be confusion surrounding the different types of silicone implants, specifically regarding what is and what is not a "cohesive" or "gummy" implant.  I believe that some of this confusion is, unfortunately, being caused by other Plastic surgeons who, either through ignorance or intentional misdirection, are misinforming patients. I have seen a number …

How fantastic is liposuction?

Liposuction can create wonderful body transformations. Localized areas of fat excess can be reduced, leaving behind a person's natural, more attractive body contours undisturbed by these bulges. BUT... as I was reminded this morning during a consultation with a patient that had previous liposuction, it has it's limitations. A 43 year old woman had lost …

On the perception of aging …

A patient I recently saw in consultation for a mini-facelift at my practice in Denver, CO, asked an interesting question: "Do facelift patients have a hard time adjusting to their new, younger appearance?" Without hesitation, my answer was "No." As I thought about it, I realized why, and a quick internet search confirmed my suspicion. A common …

Pearl Fusion: The Latest in Lasers

We all want flawless, youthful skin.  Unfortunately, fine lines, sunspots, and uneven skin tone plague many of us over (and under!) the age of thirty.  While many have tried lotions, potions and lasers to get their glow on, the results are often underwhelming.  In addition, the downtime that some procedures require can be too much …

Can cosmetic surgery be too acceptable??

So I saw an attractive 25-year-old woman yesterday who came in for a consult with me because she was convinced she wanted a facelift. A mini-facelift, yes, but still a facelift. On exam, this woman had a lovely facial shape and a well-defined neck. No massive weight loss; no skin disorders resulting in abnormal facial laxity; no turkey …

Not Everything Great is New, and Not Everything New is Great

As I peruse the day-to-day goings on in the plastic surgery media world, I am constantly reminded that what makes for a "news" story is often hugely removed from my day-to-day practice.  I don't see a lot of perfection-obsessed reality TV stars at my Denver-based practice, however,  I do see a growing number of 42-year-old …

New PermaLip Implant

I recently changed to using a new lip implant to fill out lips. It's called the PermaLip made by Surgisil and the results have been fantastic. Lip augmentation surgery is not a new procedure to me or Dr. Wolfe. But we have been less than satisified with previous permanent lip augmentation options including the commonly …
