My conviction about the effectiveness of my lip lift procedures in rejuvenating and beautifying the face in Morristown N.J. was seriously reinforces by the presentation that I saw at the 2016 aesthetic meeting in Las Vegas. Dr Val Lambros is one the plastic surgeons that I most admire because of his honesty and hard work. He has been looking at the facial aging by comparing the young faces to the older faces and demonstrating the changes that result from the aging process and how to correct them. He has been collecting 3D images from the members of the ASAPS over [...]

Giving yourself a smooth neck can make you look years younger. Neck bands and wrinkles are an unfortunate part of aging, but they don’t have to stay with you forever. In order to fight these using Botox and other methods, you’ll first need to learn more about them. The vertical bands of muscle that form on the neck are called neck bands or platysmal bands. As we age, our platysma muscles – large muscles that go from the jaw area down to the top of the chest – loosen and separate. With repeated use, they become permanently tensed, forming corded neck bands. [...]
Along with frown lines and horizontal forehead creases, crow’s feet are one of the most commonly Botox-treated facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet are small wrinkles that project from the outside corners of the eyes. They make the face look older and constantly exhausted; erasing them withBotox makes you look years younger. Many people get crow’s feet. The skin in the area around the eyes is not very thick, so it’s more prone to wrinkling than other parts of the face. Laughing, squinting, and smiling are all activities that cause the orbicularis oculi muscles to twitch, and repeated twitching of these muscles forms [...]
Cellulite is French word that means inflammation or infection in the subcutaneous fat. The word appeared in the English language in the 1920 s and became popular since 1960s. The condition now refers to the dimpling and rippling of the skin of the lateral thighs, hips and abdomen. It happens in women, but can also happen in men who suffer from androgen deficiency. So the female hormones play a role. Anatomically it is caused by the attachment of the superficial fascia system to the dermis when the superficial fatty layer grows and creates bulges in areas where there is no [...]
Short scar facelift or S lift NJ In the last blog I wrote about how important was the harmony and balance in facial rejuvenation in the older patient. By older patient I usually refer to patients in their late sixties or seventies. Here I would like to write about younger patients who are coming with early signs of aging in whom there are several options. If the main problem is active lines, lines caused by a muscle action, the initial treatment is Botox or Dysport. Early nasolabial folds can be treated with fillers like Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse. I also [...]
I always say, to age gracefully one needs to avoid or treat the deformities of aging. The most obvious deformities are the hanging neck, the very exaggerated jowls and nasolabial folds. My patients don’t seem to care about wrinkles. They think those are normal after a certain age. They like to eliminate the gross signs aging. Those are some time obvious to their grand children. One patient told me “my three-year-old grand child grabs the skin under my chin and asks me what is this grandma”. Another patient told me my grand daughter puts her index finger on my jowl [...]
