What Treatment Can Reduce Acne Scars?

Acne scars can be a serious hassle. After all, you know you don’t get breakouts anymore - but sometimes, those acne scars can be visible enough to make you look like you still have acne. That’s why you’re looking for the best acne scar reduction treatment on the market. So when it comes down to it, what treatment can reduce acne scars? Rejuvapen for Acne Scar Reduction Rejuvapen is a new and innovative microneedling treatment that uses your body’s own collagen production to quickly fade away those pesky acne scars. Here’s how it works: the Rejuvapen device is moved across the surface of the skin (it feels a lot like sandpaper). During this time, the device’s tiny micro-tip needles are quickly puncturing the surface of the skin, creating non-visible channels within the dermis. Once these channels have been created, the body triggers its collagen production process. Collagen production helps to heal the small channels by increasing cellular turnover, which eventually leads to newer, younger-looking skin. The end result? A complexion where your acne scars are no more! Rejuvapen Consultations Available Request A Consultation How Many Treatments to See Results? Rejuvapen is an excellent choice for candidates who want to kiss their acne scars goodbye. To see your best results, we’ll usually recommend a [...]

How is a Butt Lift Done?

Are you interested in undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, but not sure how the procedure itself is done? Take a look! How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Done? A Brazilian butt lift is performed in two different stages: During the first stage, your plastic surgeon will identify areas that can be used to harvest fat for the Brazilian butt lift (usually the abdomen or thighs). Liposuction techniques will be used to harvest the fat; once it has been collected, the fat will be cleansed and prepared for injection. During the second stage, the cleansed fat will be injected into key areas of the buttocks. Each Brazilian butt lift is tailored to the patient’s specific needs, so no two injections are exactly alike. The Brazilian butt lift doesn’t involve silicone implants, which means there’s no chance of experiencing adverse or allergic reactions. Additionally, the results of a Brazilian butt lift feel more natural, so no one will guess at your secret. Brazilian Butt Lift Consultations Available Request A Consultation Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery and Results If you’re ready to undergo a Brazilian butt lift, here’s what to expect from your recovery and when you can expect to see results: You shouldn’t sit or lie on your back for about two weeks after your Brazilian [...]

What is the Recovery Time for a Tummy Tuck?

Interested in undergoing a tummy tuck surgery - but nervous you’ll have to take too much time to recover? Take a look at the recovery time for a tummy tuck, including tips on how to fully heal from your surgery. *Individual results may vary What is the Recovery Time for a Tummy Tuck? While each person is different, most patients can expect to spend about four to six weeks recovering from their tummy tuck surgery, with final results visible about six months after the initial procedure. Here’s why: a tummy tuck is a major abdominal surgery. During the first week alone, you’ll spend a lot of time resting and recovering; in fact, we discourage lots of movement during these pivotal first few days. You’ll also be restricted from lifting anything heavy from off of the ground, so we encourage you to get childcare in place if you have young children at home. After the first week, you may be cleared to return to work (it could take up to two weeks if you work in a more manual field). Your recovery will continue until about four to six weeks later, when you may be cleared to return back to your normal workout regimen.

Can I Look Younger Without Surgery?

You’re on the quest to take years off of your face - but you’re not exactly ready to undergo plastic surgery. Sure, those serums and creams really haven’t been helping with those fine lines and hyperpigmentation like they claim to. But that doesn’t mean you’re ready to take the plunge to something more intense, like surgery.

How Long Do Results From Fillers Last?

Let’s face it: You’re intrigued by dermal fillers. From creating plumper, Insta-ready pouts to unveiling beautiful cheek apples, you’re pretty sure that dermal fillers can do it all. That’s why you’re considering experiencing dermal fillers for yourself, but there’s just one thing holding you back… How long do results from fillers last? Duration of Dermal Fillers Results Good news: Depending on the dermal filler you choose for your treatment, your results can last anywhere from six months to two years. While each patient reacts differently to dermal fillers (thus making it difficult to promote certain outcomes), most people see pretty lengthy results from their dermal filler treatments. Here’s why: Dermal fillers contain a hyaluronic acid gel, a natural compound that’s renowned for providing instant lift under the dermis, all while increasing organic collagen production. The end result is both an almost-immediate fix to wrinkles and fine lines, with a long-term emphasis on creating smoother and more resilient skin. Your Dermal Filler Treatment Makes All the Difference Not all dermal fillers are designed to last for up to two years. In fact, the type of dermal filler you select for your treatment will influence just how long your results will stick around. On one hand, you’ll see longer-lasting results with a dermal filler for your cheeks, as this specific product contains a thicker hyaluronic acid gel than [...]

What Are My Options for Reducing Extra Skin and Fat?

Are you frustrated by extra skin and fat around your waistline? Maybe you’ve recently given birth and your stomach hasn’t returned back to where it used to be. Or perhaps you’ve lost a significant amount of weight but you’ve noticed some extra skin on your hips and tummy. No matter what the reason why, you can’t help but ponder this question: “What are my options for reducing extra skin and fat?” Abdominoplasty for Reducing Extra Skin If you have a stubborn stomach pooch from previous pregnancies or just from getting older, you may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty. This surgical procedure - also referred to as a tummy tuck - repairs abdominal walls that may have been damaged by pregnancy, injury, or aging. The abs are reattached and aligned in a flatter position, which helps eliminate that tummy pooch. Liposuction for Reducing Extra Fat If you have extra fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for liposuction surgery. This procedure manually removes fat via a small cannula, thus allowing for precise body contouring. The best candidates for liposuction surgery are individuals who already follow a healthy lifestyle and are within 15 to 30 pounds of their ideal weight. VIEW MORE PATIENT RESULTS Can You Combine Them Both? Yes! Liposuction and abdominoplasty procedures are often combined with excellent results. For [...]

Neck Lift vs. Ultherapy: How Will They Make My Neck Look Better?

You consider yourself pretty good at keeping your face moisturized and treated with the best anti-aging skincare products available. You certainly won’t let wrinkles and fine lines sneak up on you – and your diligence means you’ll always be ready for your next selfie. But have you been giving your neck the same care and attention? Why Your Neck Needs Some Love As it turns out, many of us tend to neglect our necks – and that’s not a great thing. Neck skin is particularly delicate, meaning it’s vulnerable to showing wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, when facial fat pads begin to break down and drift south, they often end up appearing around the jawline and neck in the form of jowls. View Our Neck Lift Gallery Ultherapy v. Neck Lift for Aging Necks That’s why, at Nirvana Plastic Surgery, we offer two treatment options designed to target aging neck symptoms: Ultherapy and neck lift surgery. Each procedure is designed to target loose neck skin and wrinkles, but they’re designed for very specific patients. Ultherapy & Neck Lift Consultations Available Request A Consultation Wondering which one will help your neck look better? Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to non-invasively tighten and tone neck skin, making it an excellent solution for patients who have mild-to-moderate skin laxity issues. A neck lift [...]

When Should I Replace My Breast Implants?

If you’re considering undergoing breast augmentation surgery or you’ve recently had the surgery performed, you probably have a lot of questions on your mind about your implants. While implants are safer than ever before, you may be wondering what you can expect in terms of the longevity of your implants. In other words, you’re probably thinking: “When should I replace my implants?” The Typical Timeframe for Implant Replacement While each patient has a different experience than others, it turns out that most implant manufacturers recommend replacing your implants every five to ten years. Today’s implants typically carry a warranty on them, which ensures that the implants will last that long (barring any injury or accident which could cause the implants to puncture and leak). VIEW MORE PATIENT RESULTS There are scenarios in which you might have to undergo implant replacement a little earlier than expected. For example, if your MRIs show that you’re developing significant scar tissue or your implant is leaking, you’ll need to undergo replacement surgery. You Won’t Have to Go It Alone Don’t worry, you won’t have to decide when you’re ready to replace your breast implants all on your own. In fact, your board certified plastic surgeon will work with you even before the procedure to help you understand what your timeframe might be, as well as schedule annual appointments to check in on [...]

Do Peels Help Resurface Skin for Sun Damage?

There’s no denying you had a great summer – but now that autumn is here and fall is just around the corner, you can’t help but worry that your skin has sun damage. While you were pretty good about wearing sunscreen, you have to admit there were a few times where maybe you exposed your unprotected skin to the sun for longer than you’d have liked. This means you’re left with this important question: “Do peels help resurface skin for sun damage?” The NanoPeel for Sun-Damaged Skin As it turns out, peels can indeed help with sun-damaged skin; especially one in particular. The NanoPeel is a laser resurfacing treatment that uses the power of traditional laser skin resurfacing, with one key difference: It’s designed to be less harsh and invasive than traditional treatments. Instead, the NanoPeel was created to gently slough away the top layer of the dermis, where a lot of complexion-damaging impurities can hide out. By removing this dermis layer, the NanoPeel helps increase cellular turnover (which is key for fading the appearance of sun damage) and minimizes the appearance of existing hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines. What to Expect From Your Treatment The NanoPeel treatment is straightforward and effective, with results that can be seen in as little as one week. During your procedure, your laser technician will use the NanoPeel laser to create a thin, crystal-like [...]

Why Should I Get An Eyelid Lift?

It’s no surprise that as we age, our facial features can begin to show our years. The eyelids are often a forgotten feature, as patients tend to focus on improving their forehead, cheeks and areas around the mouth. The eyelids are actually one of the most used, muscle driven facial features, and thus can start to show signs of aging earlier than other areas of the face. An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, can help correct these symptoms, and provide patients with a more refreshed and youthful appearance. Who Is A Candidate? When considering an eyelid lift, it’s important to first determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Patients who have drooping of the upper eyelid, fatty deposits underneath their eyes, or those who have trouble seeing due to sagging skin around their eyes, are all ideal candidates for the procedure. Patients should also be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. View Our Eyelid Rejuvenation Gallery What Are the Benefits? During an eyelid lift, the plastic surgeon will make incisions within the lash line to minimize any surgical scarring. They will then remove any excess fat around the eyes and trim excess skin, closing the incisions once these gentle adjustments are made. The results are a more natural and youthful position of the eyelids. The procedure has a very high patient satisfaction rate due [...]

What Happens During an Abdominoplasty?

A slimmer midsection is a common goal of many plastic surgery patients. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that can help patients improve their midsection by removing excess fat and sagging skin. The best way to determine candidacy for the procedure is through an initial consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, but before doing so it’s important to understand how an abdominoplasty is performed. How Does It Work? A full abdominoplasty is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will make an incision between the pubic hairline and the belly button, and then adjust the abdominal skin and muscle as needed. Occasionally, liposuction will also be used to remove excess fat. The surgeon will then close the incisions, the results are a flatter, slimming looking stomach. When Will I See Results? Following a tummy tuck procedure, patients should plan to rest for at least 1-2 weeks, and should avoid bending over or lifting heavy objects. Patients are typically able to return to work after 1 week, and can resume normal daily activities after 4-6 weeks. Results will be fully noticeable 6 weeks following surgery, as the post-surgery swelling and bruising will have diminished. Patients will notice a flatter, more contoured stomach area, particularly in the months following treatment. View Our Gallery Am I A Candidate? Ideal candidates for abdominoplasty typically have excess stomach skin or fat that will [...]

How Soon Can I Hit the Beach After My Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. Whether the patient is looking to restore their pre-baby figure, or simply wants to feel more confident about their breasts, undergoing a surgical procedure is a big decision. During an initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will walk the patient through the steps leading up to, and following the procedure. One of the most asked questions during the consultation process is how long is the recovery from a breast augmentation? VIEW MORE PATIENT RESULTS What is a Breast Augmentation? A breast augmentation, also commonly known as a boob job, is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of the breasts with implants. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will make an incision around, or underneath the breast, and place the implant either above or under the pectoral muscle. Implants are typically filled with saline or silicone, and the plastic surgeon can help advise on which implant is best for the patient’s goals or needs. Upon placement, the plastic surgeon will then close the incision using dissolving sutures. How Long Is the Recovery Process? The recovery process from breast augmentation is not something that should be taken lightly, as the body will need to time to heal from the procedure. The initial recovery process typically takes about 2-3 weeks, during that time patients are encouraged to wear a support garment, or keep [...]
