Heidi Montag Undergoes Surgery –Again

Heidi Montag has undergone surgery again, in an effort to correct complications that have arisen due to her previous extreme plastic surgery procedures.

The 27-year old “The Hills” star stated, “I have a ruptured disc in my neck, the nerves are pinching my spine, and I’m having severe back problems with the muscles on my right shoulder.” She continued on to say that, “And my spine is being pulled forward from the weight of my breasts.”

Dr. Vitolo believes she was simply over-filled with injectables such as Botox or Restylane.

“It’s important to see an experienced certified injector,” says Dr. Vitolo. “She looks to be over-filled in the cheeks and lips.”

When considering dermal fillers it is important to consider a board certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Vitolo. Injections should be done by an experienced professional who can offer the right artistry, so that your results make you look like yourself-only better.

Before doing any injections a good plastic surgeon will consider your skin texture, tone, bone structure, and other factors so that you are given natural looking results.

NeNe Leakes Denies Facelift: Says Not Yet

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and Glee swim coach Nene Leakes denies rumors that she’s had a facelift. The star attributes the rumors of a facelift to her new look-which she says merely involved a makeup change and a new hair color. The celeb has been upfront about her breast surgery (for a perkier look) and said if she had a facelift done, she would own it.

Leakes told a Huff Post blogger, “I believe in a nip tuck,” and added, “I believe you should always look good or however you feel. Whatever makes you feel great.”

Many women in their 40’s, like Leakes, feel that they are too young to undergo a surgical facelift. Therefore, Dr. Vitolo offers many options for a younger/fresher look without surgery.

Injectable fillers is a popular option for women-as they begin as early as in their 20’s to prevent signs of aging. Dr. Vitolo offers Restylane, Juvederm and Botox as a nonsurgical option to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and under-eye puffiness.

US Breast Implant Manufacturers

If you would like to enhance the overall appearance of your figure and enhance the curves of your body, it is important that you consider undergoing breast augmentation surgery. A breast augmentation surgery can add extra volume, perkiness, size, and boost to your breasts, enhancing femininity and making you shapelier. Our New York plastic surgeon and the staff here at the office have been able to help plenty of patients achieve the look that they have always desired through breast augmentation surgery.

In order to achieve this boost in breast size and change in breast shape, the plastic surgeon uses breast implants. These are filled with either silicone gel or saline solution and are surgically placed into the breast pocket. Of course, these breast implants are not made at the office but are, rather, manufactured.

In the United States, there are two primary manufacturers who are authorized to make breast implants. Both of these companies are based in the same city in Southern California: Santa Barbara.

One of these breast implant manufacturers is Allergan, a company that also goes by the name of Natrelle. (Previously, Allergan/Natrelle was known by the name Inamed Aesthetic and McGhan Medical). The other company is Mentor Corporation. Both Allergan/Natrelle and Mentor Corporation produce breast implants of comparable good quality.

For any prospective patients who have been interested in getting breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to note that the surgery is safe and effective and has helped many achieve the figure that they have always wanted. During a consultation at our practice, we’ll be happy to discuss if breast augmentation is a good option for you and your aesthetic goals. In some cases, a breast lift may be able to achieve a patient’s wish better than breast augmentation surgery.

Lip Augmentation Methods

One of the parts of the body that people want to enhance the most is the lips. A nice pair of full lips conveys desirability and sensuality–it can make you look sexy or debonair or just plain prettier and more handsome. That said, however, many people are not always sure what lip enhancement will entail. With that in mind, our Brooklyn plastic surgeon and our staff want to discuss a few different options that are out there for lip augmentation and lip enhancement.

One of the first options for lip augmentation we should discuss is the use of lip implants. These are safe, synthetic tubes that are discreetly placed into your lips. These are long-lasting unlike other lip augmentation solutions that are out there.

One of the most popular treatments for lip augmentation is injectable fillers. One of the most well known fillers for the lips is collagen. Collagen is a type of naturally occurring protein that is found in the body. It comes in many different varieties. Collagen can be injected into the lips to achieve a fullness that was not previously there.

Another injectable filler that can be used to enhance the lips and take care of wrinkling around the mouth is Brooklyn Restylane®. Restylane® injections, like collagen injections, are derived from a naturally occurring substance in the body. Restylane® is designed for filling out all sorts of sunken in area around the face.

So which option for lip augmentation will be best for you and your needs? Since injectable fillers only last for a few weeks at a time, they are only a temporary solution to your needs for lip enhancement. Lip implants are permanent, but they may not be what you’re looking for based on your situation.

The best way to determine the best option for your lip augmentation needs is to visit our cosmetic surgery offices for a consultation.

Celebrities and Liposuction

If you have areas of stubborn fat that just doesn’t  go away- even with regular exercise and a  healthy diet- there is a great body contouring solution for you. That solution is liposuction, which will suck away that last bit or bits of excess fat. The best part about liposuction is that it can be performed on different parts of the body as needed.

We at our New York plastic surgery office have noticed that many celebrities have undergone liposuction over the years. Or we should say that we notice it when the body contouring work is drastic or poorly done. That’s one thing about plastic surgery that your can say for sure: if it’s obvious that someone has undergone cosmetic surgery, nine times out of ten, the surgery wasn’t performed as well as it could have been.

Let’s take Tara Reid, for example. She seems to be a poster child for the horrors of bad plastic surgery. Tara Reid’s liposuction left her stomach looking saggy and deformed, and her breast augmentation also left her breasts looking artificial. For those reasons, it’s important that you consider getting your breast augmentation surgery or New York liposuction performed here at our practice. We  make the results something you can be proud of and happy about.

In some cases, liposuction is part of a full body contouring treatment. This may be necessary after pregnancy, which does alter a woman’s body quite a bit, and in some cases the changes are quite drastic. In order to re-contour the figure and reshape it so that it looks the way it did before pregnancy, liposuction, tummy tuck, and other body sculpting surgeries will be necessary. Celebrities such as Patricia Heaton, Heidi Montag, and Kendra Wilkinson have been forthcoming about their surgeries or plans for body contouring surgery.

For more information on liposuction and the body contouring options that may be best for your needs, be sure to contact our New York liposuction to learn more. During a consultation, you will be able to ask questions and get answers in great detail.

 

 

The Benefits of Spider Vein Removal

There is plenty that you can do to improve your overall appearance. Sometimes plastic surgery will be best for you and your needs. Other times you can rely on non-surgical treatments to help enhance your overall appearance. When it comes to spider veins, generally a non-surgical treatment will be best suited to meet your needs. Here our team and the Staten Island plastic surgeon want to provide some of the benefits of spider vein removal.

Spider veins are those thin red or blue veins or bundles of veins that form near the surface of  the skin. Spider veins usually affect women and are seen on the legs and the face. Spider veins are in some ways similar to varicose veins, but spider veins are usually painless. Some of the most common causes of spider veins are:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged standing or sitting

It is possible to prevent spider veins from occurring in some cases. For instance, if you have to sit or stand up for long periods of time at your job, be sure to take breaks and go for short walks or sit down. Exercise is also key in preventing the formation of spider veins. If you cannot stop the spider veins from occurring, then Staten Island spider vein removal is the best option. This includes special injection treatments, laser treatments, and other therapies.

The biggest benefit to removing spider veins is that you will look better and will be free from those unsightly clusters of veins. This means you will likely feel less self-conscious in public and may feel less restricted in terms of your clothing options.

If you would like more information on spider vein treatments as well as other non-surgical aesthetic enhancements and plastic surgery options, contact our cosmetic surgery offices serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Celebrities and Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

Facing major aesthetic and cosmetic issues is normal after weight loss. Issues such as excess skin that sags or hangs loose off  of the body that will not shrink back to fit a slimmer new frame are common. These cosmetic issues are natural and is to be expected given the nature of skin.

When skin is stretched out a good deal, it can only revert back so far. For this reason, many people have come to our New York plastic surgeon to undergo New York tummy tuck surgery (also known as abdominoplasty). The tummy tuck is able to revise the abdominal area if there is a lot excess skin around the waist.

This may explain why the tummy tuck has been so popular with celebrities. Since they’re always under brights lights and hounded by flashbulbs on the red carpet, there is a lot of pressure for celebrities to look their best as often as possible. It’s no surprise cosmetic body contouring surgeries like tummy tuck or liposuction are in such high demand in Hollywood.

For celebrities who have had children, the tummy tuck is especially useful for revising the figure. Several actresses and personalities have been forthcoming about how much tummy tuck has enhanced their appearance; including Patricia Heaton, Shar Jackson, Dayna Devon, Kate Gosselin, and Kendra Wilkinson. Even  Angelina Jolie was rumored to have underwent a tummy tuck after giving birth.

Tummy tuck is sort of the tip of the iceberg when it comes to celebrity plastic surgery, as you can imagine. Nose jobs, breast enlargement, facelifts, and other surgeries are quite popular as well. And when the surgery is at its best, you will not even realize that your favorite star has had any major work performed.

Top Five Body Flaws

We all strive to have a body we can be happy about. Some of us exercise a great deal, while others watch their diet very carefully. Yet, even with a good diet and regular exercise, you may find that your body is still not where you’d ideally like it to be.

The team here at our Brooklyn plastic surgery office would like to share with you some basics about body flaws that many of us face. We’re not talking about unwanted hair, but rather those more involved body issues that many of us  struggle with improving. We’ll also mention some options for remedying the top 5  problem areas.

1.) Loose Skin Around the Abdomen

After losing a lot of weight (whether it’s pregnancy or major weight loss), you’ll probably notice some amount of sagging or drooping in the abdominal region. This is to be expected and is totally normal. Since the skin will not shrink back around your frame, a tummy tuck or non-surgical skin tightening can remedy this matter.

2.) Love Handles and Unwanted Belly Bulges

Love handles and those little bulges around the belly and torso can be really difficult to get rid of. For these pockets of fat, consider getting a liposuction. Brooklyn liposuction can remove these pockets of fat from the body and can be performed anywhere as needed.

3.) Saggy Underarms

Usually you’d expect your triceps and arms to be trim and toned, but sometimes with age or weight loss there is some amount of sagging in the underarm area. For this, there is the arm lift, which can achieve a more desirable appearance.

4.) Drooping Buttocks

The butt can be a tough area to tone and firm, and after losing weight and exercising a great deal, you may notice some drooping or sagging of the backside. Thankfully there is the butt lift, which can really work wonders.

5.) Chest and Pectoral Problems

Breasts can droop or sag over time, which can affect your body contour a great deal. Breast lift surgery and breast augmentation surgery can take care of this quite effectively. In addition, if men have chests that are too feminine or overlarge, there is male breast reduction surgery to consider.
