Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation: It May Be The Solution For Your Undefined Jawline

By | Face, Chin Augmentation, Injectables | No Comments

When patients seek treatment for an undefined jawline, they may think that jaw filler or an implant are the only methods that will help them get the chiseled, contoured jaw they want. However, because of the jaw’s relative location on the face, and it’s importance to the facial profile, addressing the chin may actually provide the results they want. 

Lengthening the jaw by injecting filler or placing an implant in the chin, can make the jaw look longer and sharper. Additionally, a recessed jaw often causes an unpronounced jaw. When you correct this using filler or an implant, this can lead to a strong, defined jawline.

Chin augmentation can be performed in many ways, however, most commonly it is either achieved through the use of dermal fillers or a silicone implant. Dermal fillers provide a non-surgical, although temporary, it does allow you to try out the look of your chin and jawline before committing to an implant. Some people also only need minor corrections, making an implant unnecessary for their needs.

Buccal fat removal in seattle, bellevue, and kirkland

2020 Cosmetic Surgery Trends: Buccal Fat Removal And The Ideal Candidates

By | Buccal Fat Removal, Face | No Comments

Buccal fat removal is on the path to become one of the hottest and fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in 2020. The procedure–which requires a talented and experienced cosmetic surgeon–removes the buccal fat pads located in the cheeks. This usually results in a natural slimming of the face and can provide added definition to the cheekbones. 

While many people find themselves dissatisfied with the amount of fat in their cheeks, when the procedure is performed on an unideal candidate, it can quicken the aging process and result in unwanted gauntness in the area earlier in life. Anyone thinking about buccal fat pad removal should use careful consideration and consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

Buccal fat removal candidates should be at least 25 and at a healthy body weight. Weight gain, hormonal factors, and age can all contribute to the amount of fat present in your cheeks. Some people, however, are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat in their cheeks. In which case, weight loss, lifestyle changes, and other medical interventions will not result in a reduction of cheek fat. These are usually the best candidates for buccal fat removal.

Breast Reduction in Seattle and Tacoma

When Is A Breast Reduction Necessary?

By | Breast, Breast Reduction | No Comments

A breast reduction in Seattle is a cosmetic procedure that decreases the size of the breasts. There are a variety of reasons for a breast reduction. Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, a breast reduction is often a medically necessary procedure and can alleviate a patient’s pain and improve their quality of life.

The most common medical reasons for a breast reduction include back, neck, or shoulder pain. Overly large breasts can weigh down on a patient’s body, especially if they are petite or small in stature. This can cause stress on the spine and muscles in these areas. Chronic pain and even spinal problems often have their roots in overly large breasts.

Other medical reasons for a breast reduction are rashes or hygiene problems caused by the breasts. While these have topical treatments and can sometimes be prevented, often a patient cannot adequately improve hygiene practices to diminish these concerns.

Finally, living with overly large breasts can cause mental health issues and anguish that is unnecessary. Especially at a young age, large breasts can put a woman through increased stress and pain that can cause her to become anxious or depressed. Undergoing a breast reduction to make her breasts proportionate and even to the rest of her body can sometimes improve these mental health problems.

Non-Surgical Cosmetic Enhancement Methods

Non-Surgical Alternatives To Popular Cosmetic Surgeries

By | Nonsurgical, Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments

In recent years, many non-surgical alternatives to popular surgeries have popped up in the cosmetic and plastic surgery fields. For many patients, these prove to be attractive options, especially for those who cannot undergo a traditional surgery, or do not want a longer recovery. 

Of course, non-surgical solutions cannot typically achieve the same long-lasting results as traditional surgery. However, if you want only minor alterations, one of these procedures may suit your goals. 

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty: Using facial fillers, Dr. Jonov can fill in nasal humps or cosmetic issues with the bridge or tip of the nose. This method is used for nose augmentation or when the nose requires small corrections.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation: Similarly to a non-surgical rhinoplasty, a non-surgical chin augmentation uses dermal fillers to create a stronger, contoured chin. 

Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift: At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jonov offers two different non-surgical options for a Brazilian Butt Lift. A traditional non-surgical butt lift uses Sculptra instead of fat to help naturally produce collagen. Our Zombie Brazilian Butt Lift does the same using growth factors from your own body in addition to fillers to provide the best possible results.

Liposuction in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland

Debunked: Liposuction As A Weight Loss Procedure

By | PSA, SmartLipo, Body, Liposuction, Fat Transfer | No Comments

Liposuction is one of the most well-known fat removal procedures in cosmetic surgery. With little to no scarring and usually permanent results, liposuction is a procedure that can help you achieve a slimmer, more contoured body. 

Due to this, it is a common misconception that liposuction can simply suck away excess fat and help you lose weight. This is untrue. The procedure is designed to remove diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits around the body. While it is possible to lose a couple pounds after the procedure, this is only true of especially extensive cases. Usually,  removing fat from multiple points. Rarely does liposuction remove more than ten pounds of fat. 

The best candidates are those who have lost weight in other areas and need help removing stubborn pockets of fat from the areas resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is also utilized during various fat transfer procedures like Brazilian butt lifts

Dr. Jonov can determine if liposuction on its own, or in combination with another procedure, could benefit you and your cosmetic goals. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561. Or, contact us online using the form on this page.

Woman Using Neti Pot For Nasal Irrigation After Rhinoplasty in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland

The Importance Of Nasal Irrigation

By | PSA, Rhinoplasty | No Comments

Nasal irrigation is a common practice for preventing and treating sinusitis, colds, and other related nasal problems. Regularly practicing nasal irrigation can help clear your sinuses and prevent infection, especially during allergy and cold seasons. 

There are a variety of methods used to clean the sinuses and nasal passages. Saline sprays, neti pots, or more complex devices are all commonly used for irrigating the nose and sinuses. It is important to note that when using a neti pot or other at-home equipment you use it correctly and only with sterile water. Using tap water for nasal irrigation can increase the risk of infection. Though it may work, it is not worth the extra risk.

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, we recommend nasal irrigation after rhinoplasty procedures to help clear nasal passages of blood and mucus. This helps prevent infection and keeps the areas clean. Again, the importance of using sterile water is imperative for safe and effective healing.

Laser Hair Removal: A 15 Minute Procedure That Can Save You Money

By | Nonsurgical, Laser Hair Removal | No Comments

Constantly buying razors that we throw away and spending extra time in the shower to make sure that we don’t miss a single hair adds up in the long run. However, there is an easier and much more cost effective way to make sure our skin is smooth and hairless.

Laser hair removal performed by one our Master Estheticians removes hair and nearly guarantees that you will not see additional hair growth in the area. This means you will no longer have to buy disposable razors. Laser hair removal can be done in as little as 15 minutes.

Our Master Estheticians can perform the procedure almost anywhere you have hair. The most popular locations for laser hair removal include: legs, bikini line, chin, and armpits. The fall and winter months are the best time for laser hair removal because after treatment your skin is more sensitive to the sun.

How Exactly Does Botox Work?

By | BOTOX®, Injectables | No Comments

You’ve most likely heard of Botox–the popular injectable that treats fine lines and wrinkles–and wondered how it works. Botox is a type of injectable known as a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators block neuron impulses that tell the facial muscles to constrict or react. 

When you move your face through laughing, raising your eyebrows, or any other facial movement, these repeated movements can cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. This is where Botox comes in. 

It is not just conscious movement that causes these, much of the movement that cause lines and wrinkles is unconscious “Like other muscles in your body, the muscles in your face develop habits. Some people habitually furrow their eyebrows, crinkle the corners of their eyes, favor one side of their face, or scowl. These regular muscle motions beneath the skin cause wrinkles to form on the facial surface.” – Seattle Plastic Surgery

After Botox injections, when you perform these movements, the facial muscles do not respond in the same way. By relaxing your muscles, Botox can soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent the formation of new ones. 

A form of botulinum toxin A, Botox is not a permanent treatment. Within a few months, you will need another round of injections. This ensures the safety of injecting Botox, but with continued use, you may notice that new wrinkles are not forming. 

You never have to worry about an unnatural look when your Botox injections are performed or supervised by Dr. Jonov. We also offer Botox with our qualified Nurse Injectors for a reduced price. Our Nurse Injectors all trained directly under our doctor and provide the same great results.

The Best Way To Maintain Your Plastic Surgery Results? Healthy Diet and Exercise

By | PSA, Plastic Surgery Recovery, Procedures Information | No Comments

After undergoing any plastic surgery procedure, like breast augmentation, mini tummy tuck, or blepharoplasty, many patients wonder how they can ensure their results are long lasting. Plastic surgery can provide lifelong results, but it depends upon your lifestyle. Making sure you continue a healthy diet and exercise after your cosmetic surgery will help maintain your results.

For some procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, keeping your weight steady is an important part of seeing long lasting results. If you become pregnant or gain significant weight, this can reverse or complicate your results. For other procedures, like breast surgeries, weight gain or loss can change the shape and size of the breasts.

Even before undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to consider your lifestyle and health problems. Your plastic surgeon will help you do this in a consultation. But, having a good idea of the problems you may have maintaining your results can help your plastic surgeon create a custom surgery plan that will help you get the best results you can maintain.

Obviously, sometimes weight fluctuations are out of our control, even major ones, but keeping your body in good shape and healthy will only promote and help any other health problems.
