Who Is Not A Good Candidate For Microblading?

By | Microblading
Microblading is a semi-permanent brow enhancement technique that uses cosmetic tattooing to provide a natural looking shape and density to the eyebrows. Since this procedure requires a form of tattooing, it is not necessarily a good fit for every patient. So, who is not a good candidate for microblading? While most people interested in microblading are likely good candidates, people with certain medical conditions that cause excessive bleeding or majorly compromise their immune system are likely not good candidates for microblading. These patients may have a higher risk of infection and adverse effects. Additionally, even if a patient is not a higher risk of complications, if they have unrealistic expectations, they may not be a good candidate. While microblading can provide amazing results, it is limited based on the patient’s anatomy and medical history. Thus, if a patient has unrealistic expectations, then a microblading artist may deem that they not a good candidate. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

When Can I Go Braless After A Breast Augmentation With Lift?

By | Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast
Following cosmetic breast surgery such as breast augmentation with lift, patients must wear a supportive surgical bra for both their own comfort and to promote optimal healing. However, often within a few weeks, patients want to retire their bras because they feel back to their normal selves. So, when can I go braless after a breast augmentation? The exact time when you can begin to go braless following a breast augmentation with lift is usually between two and three months post-op. While patients may be back to their full activity at this point, the breasts need added support until the implants drop and they reach a certain point of healing. With that said, patients can often switch to a sports bra after a few weeks. If everything goes well, patients may be able to begin going braless for short periods of time at six weeks. However, they should not do so regularly and should still wear supportive garments, especially when exercising. Dr. Jonov will provide more insight during your post-operative appointments when he gauges your healing. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Does A Brow Lift Raise The Eyes?

By | Brow Lift, Face
Brow lift surgery helps lift the eyebrows which have descended due to age. Sometimes called a forehead lift, it can also address wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead to provide an all-around more youthful appearance of the upper face. So, does a brow lift raise the eyes? The act of lifting and repositioning the eyebrows can have an effect on the upper eyelids. It is common for someone with drooping brows to also experience sagging of the upper eyelids. If it is mild, a brow lift may be enough to provide lift and a more youthful appearance. For more moderate or severe eyelid ptosis, a patient may need to undergo an upper blepharoplasty in conjunction with their brow lift. If the upper eyelids are your primary concern, then it may be better to undergo an eyelid surgery versus a brow lift. However, Dr. Jonov can help you determine this during a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. It is important to know that a brow lift will only provide some correction to the upper eyelids and if you want more correction, eyelid surgery may be necessary.

Is Filler Good For Marionette Lines?

Marionette lines are lines that form along the corners of the mouth and go downward toward the chin. They are called marionette lines because they resemble the lines a marionette puppet has to help move their mouth. In many people, marionette lines do not become prominent until they have reached more advanced signs of aging, or they may never appear. For patients who do see them appear earlier on in the aging process, dermal fillers are often the recommended treatment. So, is filler good for marionette lines? The cause of marionette lines is volume and collagen loss. While the movement of the mouth may have some impact on the formation of the lines, the muscle groups themselves do not form the lines when moving it. Therefore, Botox and similar products are unlikely to make a difference in the appearance of marionette lines. On the other hand, dermal fillers can help restore some of the lost volume and plump the area to help restore it to a more youthful appearance. Often, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are used, but in some cases, Sculptra or Radiesse may be recommended. This is usually when the marionette lines are exceptionally prominent and other treatments like facelift surgery are not necessary or would not alleviate the lines.
