How Much Weight Is Removed In Breast Reduction?

By | Breast, Breast Reduction | No Comments
Breast reduction is a procedure that reduces the size of the breasts. Typically, the procedure is performed to alleviate problems associated with having breasts too large for one’s frame, such as back pain, rashes, and ill-fitting clothing. This removes tissue, fat, and sometimes glands. How much weight is removed in breast reduction? It largely depends on the size of your breasts and the frame. On average, a total of two to eight pounds is removed from the breasts during a breast reduction surgery. The amount removed depends on the size of your breasts, your goals, your body size and frame, and how much is safe to remove based on your health and medical history. Breast reduction is not a weight loss surgery and can utilize a few different surgical techniques. The most common is an anchor incision, similar to a breast lift. However, breast liposuction is often an option for those who need only a moderate reduction. During your consultation, Dr. Jonov will examine your breasts and discuss the symptoms you are experiencing. He will then formulate a plan for your breast reduction surgery based on what you want to achieve and what is possible. He will describe what you can expect following surgery.  To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561.

What Is The Best Filler For The Chin?

By | Chin Augmentation, Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers | No Comments
Chin filler–also known as a non-surgical chin augmentation–is becoming a popular procedure because it can make improvements to the jawline, facial profile, and symmetry. Chin augmentation traditionally uses surgical methods to place a chin implant. However, with new techniques, many patients with more minor concerns can undergo non-surgical procedures to achieve the results they want. When inquiring about chin filler, patients often want to know, “What is the best filler for the chin?”   Hyaluronic acid fillers Juvederm and Restylane are the two most frequently used dermal fillers for the chin. Considering the chin is bony, thicker fillers tend to work better in this area. Juvederm Voluma is a popular choice and usually provides good results when injected into the chin. This filler also lasts the longest among hyaluronic acid fillers.   Restylane Lyft which is often used in the cheeks can also provide good results in the chin. Of the Restylane filler options, Lyft is one of the thicker options that is still malleable and well suited to the area. Occasionally, other fillers such as Radiesse may also be used in the chin. Though, this is largely on a case-by-case basis. Your injector will discuss your filler options and the best one for your chin filler in Bellevue.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

How Much Weight Do You Lose With A Mommy Makeover?

Many patients who undergo a mommy makeover have experienced changes in or struggled with their weight. They often seek out this procedure to correct the damage or changes in their body due to weight fluctuations. Therefore, some patients sometimes still carry some weight when they come in for surgery. Does this mean you cannot have surgery? Will it eliminate all of this weight? How much weight do you lose with a mommy makeover? Let’s answer these questions.

Weight & Mommy Makeover

People who have had children do tend to carry extra weight due to this for various reasons. Hormones, age, genetics, having a C-section, and many other factors all contribute to this extra weight. Due to this, post-baby weight can be especially difficult, if not impossible to lose.  At your mommy makeover consultation, Dr. Jonov will evaluate if you are healthy enough to undergo a mommy makeover surgery. Typically, as long as you are not obese and fairly healthy, you may be a good candidate. That said, it is recommended that patients be between five and twenty-five pounds of their goal weight before surgery. Why? A mommy makeover is not a weight loss surgery. While it may include procedures that remove fat such as liposuction and a tummy tuck, these procedures do not remove large amounts of fat. Most of the time during any plastic surgery, patients do not lose more than ten pounds during surgery. Mommy makeover surgery can be a motivator to lose weight–both before and after the procedure. Many patients do not need to lose any or a significant amount of weight before surgery. However, if it is necessary, Dr. Jonov will discuss this with you during your consultation.

Mommy Makeover Surgery

The exact outcome of a mommy makeover depends on the procedures involved. A mommy makeover is an extremely customizable procedure. Traditionally, the surgery is a combination of breast surgery (like breast augmentation) and a tummy procedure (like a tummy tuck). Though, a mommy makeover is not limited to two procedures or to breast and stomach surgeries.  A mommy makeover can include nearly any combination of procedures. However, it usually contains at least one breast and/or tummy surgery. Some of the procedures that can be a part of a mommy makeover are: Dr. Jonov will discuss your options for mommy makeover and what procedures will help you reach your cosmetic goals. Every mommy makeover is custom tailored to fit each patient’s unique desires and needs. As an experienced plastic surgeon with over two decades in the field, Dr. Jonov brings his expertise to every consultation to advise you on your mommy makeover journey.  To learn more about mommy makeover surgery in Bellevue and to schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Does Brazilian Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
The most common areas for laser hair removal include the face, underarms, and legs. However, another area is growing in popularity, the nether regions. Like a Brazilian wax, it is possible to treat pubic hair with laser hair removal. While this is appealing for many women who would love to discontinue shaving or getting waxed down there, many are understandably hesitant by the thought of a high-powered laser down there. One of the frequent questions our master estheticians hear is, “Does Brazilian laser hair removal hurt?” Laser hair removal isn’t necessarily comfortable. Patients do usually feel some slight discomfort regardless of the treatment area. However, in such a sensitive area, some patients may feel more pain than usual. That said, most patients do not find it more painful than the average Brazilian wax. The bikini area (which can also be treated on its own) tends to hurt less than other areas. Pain is subjective though, so while one patient may not find the experience overly painful, another may find it more painful than usual. Generally, patients do not find it unbearable. There are also notable benefits to Brazilian laser hair removal in Bellevue such as the permanence of the treatment. It can also be done throughout the summer months when laser treatments usually have to cease. This can make the pain and treatment more bearable.

Does Mommy Makeover Include BBL?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
A mommy makeover plastic surgery is a procedure that addresses the areas of the body that experience changes due to pregnancy and having children. Traditionally, this is the breasts and tummy. However, the procedure can also sometimes include other areas. A common question heard during consultations is, “Does mommy makeover include BBL?”   The answer is that it sometimes can. While most mommy makeover surgeries do not include a BBL, it is possible in some cases for a mommy makeover to include one. Often, this is when it does include a breast or tummy procedure, freeing up surgical time for a Brazilian butt lift. However, depending on the specifics of the procedure, it can sometimes be added to a traditional mommy makeover.    Generally, when Dr. Jonov can combine a BBL with one or more other surgeries, the patient must be in good health, a non-smoker, and understand what their recovery will entail. When combined with a mommy makeover, however, a BBL can achieve great results and completely transform the body’s contours.    To find out if you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover including a BBL, call us at 425-775-3561.

What Is The Best Treatment For Sagging Cheeks?

By | Face, Cheek Augmentation | No Comments
Aging affects every person differently. Even though aging often includes the same processes, due to genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle patients will see different changes in facial appearance. For example, the skin loses elasticity and slows collagen production. One patient may see their neck and jowls begin to sag due to this. This is often corrected with a facelift. Another patient may see more sagging in their cheeks and midface. What is the best treatment for sagging cheeks? The right treatment for sagging cheeks will depend on the factors mentioned above as well as age. For patients under their forties, it is likely that Dr. Jonov will recommend non-surgical treatments such as fillers or a thread lift. If the look of your face is because of excess fat or not due to aging, he may recommend a buccal fat removal or cheek implants. For patients in their late forties and above, Dr. Jonov may explore options such as midface lift. Also known as a cheek lift, the procedure lifts and repositions descended fat in the cheeks and midface. Occasionally, it may also address extra skin. This is sometimes performed on younger patients based on their anatomy and on a case-by-case basis. It is worth exploring all of the surgical and non-surgical options to treat sagging cheeks. The best way is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov. Call us at 425-775-3561. You can also reach out online using our Price Simulator™, chat, or contact form.

Do Breast Lifts Require Implants?

By | Breast Lift, Breast | No Comments
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that corrects breast sagging and ptosis. In many cases, patients choose to combine a breast lift with breast implants for fuller and perkier breasts. Sometimes, breast lift results can make the breasts look bigger. Due to this, patients occasionally ask, “Do breast lifts require implants?” The answer is no. Patients who undergo a breast lift do not have to have breast implants placed. A breast lift simply removes extra skin and unnecessary tissue to create a perkier breast. Breast sagging can occur for many reasons including age, nursing, pregnancy, and genetics. This leads many people to seek out breast lift surgery. Most patients who have a breast lift are good candidates for breast augmentation as well. If patients want breast implants along with a breast lift, the implants can be added through the same incisions as your breast lift. It also forgoes the need for two surgical sessions by combining the two procedures together.  A breast lift and breast augmentation can complement each other spectacularly. The two procedures can create a more youthful breast appearance and restore the breasts to previous fullness and shape.  To schedule a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561.

How Do You Fix Sunken Temples?

By | Nonsurgical, Injectable Fillers, Injectables | No Comments
Sunken temples are a common condition that can occur with aging, due to weight loss, or even just from living an athletic lifestyle. Losing volume in this area can make the face look aged, gaunt, and tired. Therefore, many patients want to correct this look and come to the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery with the question, “How do you fix sunken temples?” Luckily, for most patients, there is a quick and easy solution that can fill in their temples and provide a more youthful look. Dermal fillers injected into the temples can address hollowing and wrinkles in the area. It can also round out the face in that area to create a more flattering face shape.  Temple fillers take around twenty to thirty minutes to complete in our office and are completely non-surgical. They will require regular injections roughly once or twice a year to maintain the look. However, for many patients this is worth it because of the difference temple filler can make in their overall facial appearance.  For patients with more advanced aging or brow sagging, a brow lift may also address the temples and provide a youthful look. This is generally in older patients or those who need more than hollowed temples addressed. Your provider can discuss these options with you during your consultation.  To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Can A Brow Lift Fix Hooded Eyes?

By | Brow Lift, Face | No Comments
Hooded eyes are a condition where the crease of the eyelid is hidden or not much of the lid can be seen. This can develop with age, but some people also are born with hooded eyes. For some people, the appearance of their eyes does not bother them, especially if genetic, because it is not age related. For those who see hooded eyes due to age, however, many patients become distressed due to this change. They may then seek out cosmetic treatments to correct or improve their hooded eyes. Some patients may even seek out a surgical procedure. Can a brow lift fix hooded eyes? A brow lift surgery can fix hooded eyes in many circumstances. The procedure lifts the position of the brows, removes extra skin, and tightens the skin. Naturally, this may lead to lifting and removing the skin causing a hooded eye look. It is dependent upon your anatomy and the specifics of your brow lift.  Some patients may see the best results if they combine a brow lift and upper blepharoplasty surgery. This may benefit older patients or those with more advanced sagging in the area. Dr. Jonov can determine the best course of action or your brow lift surgery during a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Is A Non-Surgical Nose Job Worth It?

By | Rhinoplasty | No Comments
Nose job surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is among one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures around the world. With new and advanced techniques, some patients may not need surgery to see the changes they want in their nose. A non-surgical nose job uses dermal fillers to address unwanted features of the nose. While not every patient is a candidate, those are may wonder “Is a non-surgical nose job worth it?” A non-surgical rhinoplasty often addresses unwanted humps and bumps on the bridge of the nose. However, it can also make slight alterations to the tip of the nose and overall shape. When injected, the filler fills in these areas or changes their projection. For patients who need only minor corrections, this may be the preferred route because it is less invasive.  Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not a permanent solution though, unlike a nose job surgery. This is important to consider when determining which may serve your needs best. With that said, non-surgical nose job results do tend to last longer than typical filler results and many enjoy the rest for several months or years. The procedure may serve as a test run for rhinoplasty surgery and let patients try out their results without committing. This can make the procedure worth it because it allows patients peace of mind for their surgery. Also, some patients do not want to undergo surgery, the non-surgical route may be worth it. Overall, the procedure is consistent and can provide fantastic, long lasting results. To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
