Chin augmentation—whether done with an implant or dermal fillers—is a procedure that is perfect for good candidates, but can cause seriously bad results for patients who are not good candidates. This can lead patients to become weary of any chin augmentation procedure and ask, “Is chin augmentation worth it?” In the right patient who has a recessed chin, chin augmentation is absolutely worth it. The procedure brings the facial thirds into alignment and enhances facial symmetry and balance. It can also help create a sharper and slimmer looking jawline. Dr. Jonov or your provider at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can examine your facial structure to determine if you are a good candidate for chin augmentation. In the wrong patient, chin augmentation can cause the chin to protrude too much and throw off facial balance. Usually, this is due to poor patient screening or over injection of filler. The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery’s providers work to ensure that your treatment plan is right for you. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Laser hair removal is the best way to reduce body hair growth permanently. For women, who tend to remove most of their body hair, they often will seek out multiple areas of laser hair removal. This can include the bikini area. Patients often wonder since a Brazilian wax addresses the entire pubic area, patients ask, “Can you laser your entire pubic area?’ Yes, it is safe to laser the pubic area for most patients. It should be noted that this is one of the more sensitive areas when it comes to laser hair removal, but it is quick and effective. Many patients also believe it is overall less painful than waxing. One major benefit of undergoing a Brazilian laser hair removal procedure is that you can do it year round without worry. Since the pubic area is nearly always covered, you do not need to worry about sun exposure which not only improves results, but also limits the risks of complications.

Smile line filler—also referred to as nasolabial fold filler—is a popular procedure that helps fill in and disguise the folds that extend from the nose to the corners of your mouth. The procedure requires precision and expertise because it is easy to overfill the area and create a puffy appearance. Additionally, many people with smile lines may not necessarily be good candidates. However, for those who are, they often ask, “How painful is smile line filler?” For the most part, the smile line filler treatment is not overly painful. Patients generally remain fairly comfortable during the procedure. Topical numbing cream is usually applied before the injections. Also, since hyaluronic acid fillers are the most commonly used, most of them also contain a small amount of lidocaine to ease the injections during the process. It is normal to feel some slight discomfort, but for most patients, this is completely bearable. Our injectors can also use a vibration device that helps distract your brain from the feeling of the injection. We have several pain management options available for your smile line filler injections. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Mommy makeover surgery gets its name because it is a surgery often performed after a patient has children. At a minimum, it addresses the breasts and abdomen but can include other parts of the body as well. Like with most elective surgeries, patients need to be in good health and weight is sometimes part of this. So, what is the weight limit for mommy makeover? There is no single weight limit for mommy makeover surgery. This is because almost any weight can be healthy or not cause major risks for elective surgery. It is largely based on the patient’s overall health. Dr. Jonov does not only take BMI and weight into account. Patients of a healthy weight can sometimes not be good candidates for surgery due to health factors, while an otherwise overweight patient may be otherwise healthy. In general, most plastic surgeons prefer that patients have a BMI under 30 because this means that weight is unlikely to be a large factor in their health and candidacy for surgery. However, a BMI above 30, especially if it is not significantly over 30, is not always a disqualifying factor. To learn more and schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561.
