Looking Better - NYC

I got Perma Facial Implants in my upper and lower lips 4 days ago. I think the results will end up looking quite nice. I tend to bruise and swell easily, which was the case, although in the last two days this has improved immensely. Still, I expect lingering swelling for a few weeks. I am eager... READ MORE

Refreshed Look - New York, NY

I have held off on BOTOX for a long time. Three years ago I underwent facial rejuvenation...face lift, brow lift, upper & lower eyelid surgery. The results were great and I wanted to maintain them as best I can. During a consultation with my cosmetic surgeon, I voiced my concerns about... READ MORE

No Result, Painful, Waste of Time & Money - Denville, NJ

I suffer from cellulite and read that VelaShape was the first and only FDA-cleared medical device for body re-shaping. Since it's non-invasive, I thought I'd try it. It sounded too good to be true and it was. The idea that VelaShape feels like a hot stone massage is ridiculous. It... READ MORE

Restoring a More Youthful Appearance - New York, NY

I had plastic surgery (first time in my life) when I turned 50 to rejuvenate my face...upper and lower eyelids, brow lift, full face lift. Loved the results after everything healed, but time marches on; the aging process continues. Today, at 54, I still look 1,000 times better than before... READ MORE

Clearer, Brighter, More Radiant Skin - Dallas, TX

I have a very fair complexion and was experiencing mild rosacea, had a few small spider veins, and some light "age spots" due to sun damage. I tried a topical and an oral treatment for the rosacea, prescribed by my dermatologist,but felt that IPL would be a more natural solution... READ MORE

LOVE my Smile - Dallas, TX

I grew up in the era before we understood that taking tetracycline when young could stain the teeth. My tetracycline staining was pronounced. I had green/gray teeth. Like most people who are uncomfortable with their smile, I hid it with my hand, refused to smile in pictures, and was very... READ MORE

Stunning Results - Texas

About 4 years ago, when I turned 50, non-invasive laser treatments no longer produced the results I was looking for. I looked tired and older than my years. This had a significant impact on my sense of well-being and self-confidence. It was time to "go under the knife." After... READ MORE

If you're in Houston, it's worth it to take a trip up to Dallas to see Dr. Peter Raphael or Dr. Scott Harris at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery. They are, hands down, the most experienced with PermaLip. They are THE PermaLip... READ COMMENT

I live in NJ and had my PermaLip implants done by a plastic surgeon in Manhattan. Love the results. If you aren't ready to throw in the towel on PermaLip, and are able to travel to have this done, go to the American Institute for... READ COMMENT

I'm sorry you had a terrible experience. I love my PermaLips. Since you're in Houston, the two plastic surgeons that are true PermaLip experts are Dr. Peter Raphael and Dr. Scott Harris at the American Institute of Plastic Surgery in... READ COMMENT

Dr. Harris and Dr. Peter Raphael at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery have more experience and know more about Perma Facial Implant than anyone else. I agree. If you don't mind traveling to Dallas to have the procedure done, go... READ COMMENT

Dr. Harris is fantastic and so is his partner at the American Institute for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Peter Raphael. Those two know more about Perma Lip than any other plastic surgeons. Fact. READ COMMENT
