A Petite Facelift Can Rejuvenate with Less Downtime

A full facelift can take years off of your appearance, yet many people simply don’t have the time to spare for the necessary recovery. Taking this into consideration, plastic surgery expert Dr. Paul Chasan has developed a procedure he calls a petite facelift. This mini facelift procedure provides most of the results of a full facelift, but you can get back to your life in as little as two weeks!

This petite facelift procedure involves much less dissection, as it is combined with liposuction and fat transfer procedures in order to minimize the amount of incisions necessary. This revolutionary procedure can revitalize and rejuvenate the appearance without needing the lengthy amount of rest and recovery normally associated with such procedures. A petite facelift can be the perfect in-between solution for someone who wants the full effect of a facelift, rather than the temporary effects that non-invasive procedures such as Botox or dermal fillers provide, yet doesn’t necessarily want to go through a full surgical facelift.

Whether a person qualifies for a petite facelift will depend on their facial anatomy and the results of a consultation in order to determine if the procedure will provide the desired results. Petite facelifts are generally best for people in their early forties or early fifties who want a more youthful appearance but aren’t ready to commit to a full facelift.

Petite facelifts provide long-lasting and beautiful results when performed by an expert cosmetic surgeon with the necessary experience and artistry. It is vital to choose the right plastic surgeon for the procedure, as petite facelifts require the same amount of skill and expertise as a full facelift. Make sure your face is in good hands by choosing your plastic surgeon wisely!

Endoscopic Spinal Fusion Can Help Severe Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that most often strikes children and teenagers. If a person has scoliosis, it means that their spine is curved laterally, resulting in uneven shoulders and ribcage. In severe cases, a person may have trouble breathing or neurological problems.

Scoliosis Treatment in Los Angeles

Generally, the best treatment for scoliosis is a back brace to straighten the spine. However, this treatment has the best results in children and teens whose skeletal structures haven’t fully matured yet. Scoliosis in an adult whose skeleton has stopped growing will most likely need a more aggressive treatment. Severe scoliosis, in which the spine curves at more than a 40 degree angle, will also usually need surgery.

Spinal fusion surgery is the method of choice for those with severe scoliosis or in those whose scoliosis hasn’t responded to conservative methods. Spinal fusion used to be a long, complex procedure where the surgeon opened the back in order to cut through muscle and tissue to get to the spine; however, modern technological advances have brought a new spinal fusion surgical technique. Endoscopic spinal fusion is a minimally invasive procedure which only requires small incisions.

At ProMed Spine, leading spine surgeon Dr. Todd Gravori performs the best endoscopic spine surgery in Los Angeles with great success. For spinal fusion surgery, he uses either transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), in which the incisions are placed at the back, or extreme lateral lumbar interbody fusion (XLIF), in which the incisions are placed at the side. These minimally invasive techniques provide great benefits to the patients, as they have a high success rate and result in much less post-operational pain and recovery time than traditional open-back spinal fusion, as well as leaving behind much smaller and less noticeable scars on the back or side.

The Benefits of LASIK

LASIK eye surgery has become fairly mainstream over the last decade, and most individuals that have chosen to undergo the procedure report extreme satisfaction with the results and the improved quality of life that better vision provides. After LASIK, most patients can expect to have 20/20 vision without the aid of glasses or contact lenses, many for the first time.

Dr. Michael Tracy, the best Carlsbad eye doctor at Carlsbad Eye Care, performs LASIK on countless patients each year.

LASIK in San Diego

LASIK is a fairly quick and simple outpatient procedure lasting approximately 15 – 20 minutes per eye. Patients can expect to spend an hour or two in the ophthalmologist’s office, taking prep and post procedure time into account. Special lenses or goggles may be required immediately after the procedure to protect the eyes, but patients can expect to have 20/20 vision almost immediately after the procedure.

Click here to learn more about the history of LASIK and how the procedure works.

LASIK is a refractive surgery that reshapes the surface of the cornea with the aid of a laser to correct the following vision problems:

Myopia – Myopia (nearsightedness) makes objects at a distance appear out of focus.

Hyperopia – Hyperopia (farsightedness) makes near objects appear out of focus, although in some extreme cases patients may be unable to see objects clearly at any distance.

Astigmatism - Astigmatism is an optical defect that causes blurred vision and can occur in one or both eyes.

The effects of LASIK eye surgery are usually permanent in most cases, and patients can enjoy the freedom and financial savings of giving up glasses or contact lenses for good.

After Teeth Whitening: How to Maintain Great Teeth

What you eat and what you don’t eat, greatly affects the color of your teeth. If you frequently indulge in coffee, tea, wine, or cigarettes, your teeth are likely to suffer at least some discoloration or yellowing. Cigarettes also contribute to poor gum health and gum disease. Studies also suggest a link between diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids and good oral health.
