Temple filler consists of dermal fillers injected into the temple area. This helps to address hollowing in the temples due to age, weight loss, or genetics. It can also help lift the eyes and create a more heart-shaped face. Since temple filler is still not common among the casual filler patient, patients often have questions such as, “Does temple filler migrate?”
Any filler injected in any area of the face has the potential to migrate. Overall, filler migration is rare and if it does occur, it generally does cause any major effects and can be dissolved and reinjected. However, in the temple, the bone structure makes it extremely hard for the filler to move anywhere.
Temple filler migration likely indicates the filler was injected too superficially and not deep enough so that the temporal boney fossa can hold it in place. As long as hyaluronic acid fillers are used, the filler can be dissolved with hyaluronidase injections and reinjected correctly.

A tummy tuck and mommy makeover are both popular plastic surgeries performed after pregnancy. Women want to address stretch, loose, and extra skin on the abdomen which both of these procedures can address. So, what is the difference between a tummy tuck and mommy makeover?
Firstly, a tummy tuck only addresses the abdomen. Sometimes Dr. Jonov may perform liposuction of adjacent areas to improve the overall results. However, it is overall a body contouring surgery that addresses only the abdomen. It can help patients achieve a flatter stomach and also help repair separated abdominal muscles.
A mommy makeover is a broader term for a combination of surgeries that address the breasts and abdomen. For example, the classic mommy makeover is a breast augmentation with a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is frequently part of a mommy makeover, but a solo tummy tuck is not a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover also does not need to include a tummy tuck either.

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that is used to improve or treat a variety of skin conditions. This includes acne and acne scars. Though, if a patient has active acne breakouts, their master esthetician may recommend another treatment or treat the skin around it. Why is this? Can microneedling make acne worse?
It depends. When microneedling is performed correctly and in the right sequence with other procedures, it can help improve the appearance of acne and acne scars. However, for those with cystic acne or breakouts that they are having trouble with, it is likely that their master esthetician will recommend undergoing an acne-specific peel like the VI Peel. This helps calm the existing breakouts and inflammation.
If microneedling is performed on these patients first, it can make microneedling worse by spreading bacteria around the face. While this is only true in very specific cases, a master esthetician may recommend another treatment or alternating treatments such as the Glow Up Package which alternates chemical peels and microneedling.

Breast lift surgery removes skin and tissue from the breast to reduce the weight which causes the breast to sag. Due to this, the breasts usually end up smaller than before breast lift surgery. This can concern patients who want to maintain their volume. However, it is important to remember that—while they are similar—a breast lift is ultimately different from a breast reduction. Let’s look at the frequently asked question, “What size will I be after breast lift?”
The answer to this question largely varies from patient to patient. Some patients may see little volume loss while others may experience more significant volume loss. On average patients can expect a breast lift to reduce breasts by one cup size. For some patients, this will not be significant while others may worry their breasts will be smaller than they want.
One solution is to place breast implants at the same time as the breast lift. This helps to maintain or add volume while also lifting the breasts. An auto augmentation may also help patients maintain natural looking volume, but it generally still results in a slight reduction. Patients may be able to do fat transfer to the breasts at the same time.
