As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, I get a lot of questions. I thought you might like to know what my list of FAQ in 2015 looks like (and of course, what my answer would be!)
1. What are the latest products/services out there that are worth the hype?
Of course, there are a lot of new products advertised the offer you no downtime, less expensive, better results. Amazing offers, the newest thing from Europe….My philosophy is that is if it a truly great product, it will be around next year and the year after that. I would prefer my patients not be test subjects. That aside, I do think that as new products and services go, Kybella for double chin fat and microneedling for skin rejuvenation are both here to stay.
2. What is the procedure that gives patients the highest satisfaction?
#1 is breast augmentation. No matter a patients age, this surgery tends to give patients a high personal level of confidence.
#2 is tummy tuck. Patients always tell us it is a tough first week, but then wonder why they waited so long!
3. What is the latest in injectable products?
I am using Restylane Silk as a “airbrush” product with patients. It is FDA approved for the treatment of “lips and lines” and was introduced to the US market by Galderma in mid 2015. This product is fast becoming my most popular injectable allowing a new level of artistry to injectable products.
