Ear Surgery Questions: What Is Otoplasty?

By | Face, Ear Surgery | No Comments
When most people think of plastic surgery, the ears may not spring to mind as a body part that people seek to change. However, cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a procedure that can change the position, size, and shape of the ears. Most often an otoplasty corrects ears that stick out, this is known as “ear pinning” surgery.    Otoplasty can correct birth defects, injuries that altered the shape of the ear, or if someone is simply unhappy with the appearance of the ears. It is a simple procedure that normally does not take longer than a couple hours. Additionally, even if the birth defect or issue only afflicts one ear, both ears are usually operated on to maximize symmetry and lead to the best result. Occasionally, only one ear is treated, but this is rare.    Patients can undergo the procedure as soon as the ears fully form, so normally anytime after age five. Adults and children undergo the procedure frequently in the United States. It is generally a well tolerated surgery and most patients recover quickly with little scarring. While incision placement will vary based on the goals of the procedure, most otoplasty incisions are hidden behind or in the natural creases of the ear.   To schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online

Chin Implant vs. Chin Fillers: Which Is Right For Me?

By | Chin Augmentation | No Comments
Chin augmentation comes in two main forms: a chin implant or chin filler. Depending on your individual anatomy, preferences, and goals, one may benefit you more than the other. In a consultation, Dr. Craig Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can evaluate you and your goals to aid you in determining the best Bellevue chin augmentation option for you.   During chin implant surgery, Dr. Jonov will place an implant into the chin to create a more prominent and well shaped chin. The implants are typically made of silicone and are sized to compliment your natural facial features. This option is often preferred by patients who have a recessed chin or who need a modification that filler cannot provide. For some patients who continually seek filler, this may offer them a longer lasting solution.    Chin filler has many uses. It can filler in wrinkles, unwanted dimples, or provide subtle augmentation to even out the facial profile. When used for chin augmentation, filler is injected to increase the projection of the chin. This can lead to a more symmetrical appearance and a facial transformation that is not immediately noticeable.

Are Fillers The Only Lip Augmentation Option?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers, Fat Transfer, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.    Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip.    Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers.    To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Laser Hair Removal: Is It Effective?

By | Nonsurgical, Laser Hair Removal | No Comments
Permanent hair removal is one of the most sought after esthetic procedures. It comes with many benefits including allowing for the discontinuation of shaving and can save money in the long run. There are many long term or permanent hair removal options available. However, laser hair removal is probably the best known option. Many people wonder: is laser hair removal effective? Fortunately, the answer is yes! Laser hair removal is one of the most effective options for permanent hair removal. It usually requires at least four sessions to see long lasting or permanent results. Throughout the sessions, laser hair removal works to deactivate hair follicles. In turn, this prevents future hair from growing.  Every person will see a slightly different level of efficacy from laser hair removal. In general, most people see long lasting, if not permanent cessation of hair growth. Our master estheticians can evaluate your hair growth and determine the best laser hair removal protocol for you. Laser hair removal is also effective in most body areas. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer laser hair removal for areas, such as, the chin, legs, bikini, upper lip, armpit, and many more possible treatment areas. To find out more about if laser hair removal is an option for you, call 425-775-3561 or contact us online to set up a consultation with one of our Bellevue master estheticians.

Types Of Brazilian Butt Lift: Surgical & Non-Surgical Options

By | Brazilian Butt Lift, Sculptra, Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments
Butt augmentation with surgical and non-surgical methods are one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures in the country. Dr. Craig Jonov performs many of these procedures every year and offers many different options for Bellevue butt enhancement.

Surgical

The surgical Brazilian butt lift procedure liposuctions fat from a donor area of the body and transfers it to the backside. This can dramatically change your body’s contours because it can remove excess fat while refining the shape of the booty. The amount of fat transferred depends on the amount of viable fat and your personal goals for your Bellevue Brazilian butt lift.

Non-Surgical

There are various types of non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. A common non-surgical method to augment the butt is to use the dermal filler Sculptra. This long lasting filler stimulates collagen and is easy to combine with other injectable materials.   Non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts provide a butt enhancement option for people who do not want surgery, or may not have enough fat to liposuction. Dr. Jonov can discuss which non-surgical options are best for you. All of the options are natural or completely biodegradable, while stimulating collagen production in the body to promote natural augmentation. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Breast Augmentation Without An Implant: How It Works

By | Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast | No Comments
Breast augmentation is a procedure that increases the size of the breasts. Typically, an implant or fat are used during a breast augmentation procedure to achieve larger breasts. However, some patients may benefit from a surgery known as auto augmentation. Auto augmentation is a breast augmentation procedure that does not utilize any foreign material to achieve larger breasts. How does this work?   Breast augmentation without an implant utilizes a breast lift procedure to correct sagging breasts, while repositioning breast tissue for a natural augmentation. Auto augmentation does not provide the dramatic results that traditional breast implants can. However, for many patients, these are subtle, natural results are preferable.   Dr. Jonov performs the procedure similar to a breast lift. Making an incision down the breast, he will lift the nipples and areolas. He will then carefully move existing breast tissue into a more flattering and youthful position. This creates a perkier, fuller breast.    Auto augmentation is a wonderful option for patients who have some breast sagging and volume loss, but do not want breast implants. Depending on your goals, it can also be part of a traditional breast augmentation. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

The Top Pre-Wedding Skincare Treatments

By | Microneedling, Nonsurgical, Intraceuticals Treatment, Chemical Peel | No Comments
Planning a wedding is a stressful endeavor that can take months and years to achieve. It is a day where you want to look your best and at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery wants to make it easy and stress-free. Our master estheticians offer many professional pre-wedding skincare treatments. 

Oxygen Facial

Celebrities are known to have oxygen facials performed days before hitting the red carpet. This facial infuses oxygen onto and into the skin to provide a healthy looking glow. With no downtime and nearly no risk of side effects, you can apply makeup and continue your skincare directly after treatment.

The Glow Up Package

If you still have a while before the big day, the proprietary glow up package can rejuvenate your skin and treat concerns like acne scarring and pigmentation issues. The procedure staggers three chemical peels and three microneedling sessions over the course of a few months. This leads to your skin receiving consistent treatment and an increase in collagen production. It is best to let your skin rest for a week or two after you finish the final treatment.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is one of the top procedures recommended by makeup artists because it removes peach fuzz and dead skin. This allows makeup to go on smoother. For your wedding, it is important that your makeup looks smooth and your skin glows. Call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online to schedule a consultation about your pre-wedding skincare routine.

Chin Augmentation: How It Can Transform Facial Profile

By | Chin Augmentation, Injectable Fillers | No Comments
Chin augmentation–whether surgical or non-surgical–can dramatically change facial profile and appearance. As the main feature for the bottom of the face, the chin can affect the look of the jawline and neck. A recessed chin can cause the jaw to look undefined or the neck to look short. Using filler or an implant, Dr. Jonov can address these, and other concerns you may have.  When it comes to facial aesthetics, the bottom of the chin should roughly line up with the tip of the nose. Sometimes, the chin does not fully extend to meet this, and this is known as a recessed chin. Most of the time, this is only slight and does not bother many people. However, for those that choose, a chin augmentation procedure can subtly or dramatically augment this area to create the desired facial profile.  Dr. Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery uses two methods for chin augmentation. The first involves a chin implant that he places during a chin augmentation surgery. This provides longer lasting results and works best for those wanting a more dramatic result. It can also alter the shape of the chin.  Non-surgical chin augmentation uses dermal fillers to augment the chin. Results are usually more subtle and last between six months and two years depending on the chosen filler. It can address minor chin recession, dimples, and other minor alterations. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

BOTOX vs. Dysport? Which Is Better?

By | Face, BOTOX®, Dysport, Injectables | No Comments
The classic debate among frequent neurotoxin users and providers is: Which is better: BOTOX or Dysport? The answer is not entirely clear. When it comes to BOTOX vs. Dysport the answer can differ between patients and injector.    Some patients will see the best results with BOTOX while others will see better results with Dysport. Both derive from a neurotoxin known as Botulinum toxin A. The main differences come in slight variations of formula and the amount of proteins present in each. Dosages also vary. These small differences can affect how the body metabolizes each toxin which leads to one lasting longer than the other.   Some patients and providers find that Dysport kicks in faster and lasts longer than BOTOX. This is great for patients who want a quick result. Although, not every patient will experience this. Usually, the best way to find out whether BOTOX or Dysport works better for you is to try both.    The injectors at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery are experienced in both BOTOX and Dysport. They can expertly inject either toxin and guide you through choosing the option that will give you the best results. In general, both BOTOX and Dysport can provide wonderful results and hide the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.    To schedule a consultation at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
