Granulomatous Reaction to Radiesse - Los Angeles, CA

Approximately one year ago, I received Radiesse injections in an attempt to level some acne scars on my cheeks. Instead of filling the scars like I had asked, the nurse injector (mistake #1) decided that my cheeks needed filling. Within a day after the injections, my face swelled and looked... READ MORE

Botox in Masseter Muscle for Jaw Contouring -Los Angeles, CA

I've had this done multiple times over the past couple of years to contour the jawline. I have a pretty significant case of TMJ, and over the years it had taken a toll on my teeth (being worn down) and my face. My face always looked swollen and puffy regardless of what I weighed. ... READ MORE

Questions from mfan17

What is the ideal? I've been getting Botox injections to slim the masseter muscles consistently for 2 years.

Overall, I really like the effect. My question is, at what point does the face become too tapered and appear abnormal and not in harmony with other facial features, especially... READ MORE

Does dermabrasion destroy the adnexal structures that are necessary to heal after a resurfacing procedure?

Does Dermabrasion (ablative, not microdermabrasion) preclude future laser procedures (co2, erbium)? If one does focal, spot dermabrasion to contour deep acne scars, does that... READ MORE

Is ear cartilage adequate for typical Asian Rhinoplasty patient?

In the typical Asian rhinoplasty patient, is there enough ear cartilage to augment the bridge AND to increase projection and length of the nose? Are there any particular... READ MORE

I recently had a spot dermabrasion procedure localized to just the left cheek area. At this point, it has been 3 months since the dermabrasion, which was done to soften acne... READ MORE

Are I-shaped silastic implants a good option? Do they reduce the complications associated with traditional L-shaped implants?

Do I-shaped silastic implants used only on the bridge greatly reduce the complications associated with traditional L-shaped implants? From my research, it seems most of of the... READ MORE

Puffy nipples : Does this require only glandular excision or can this be treated by liposuction alone? (photos)

I have always had puffy nipples regardless of my weight. Currently at 16% body fat (could be in better shape). 1. Will this require glandular excision or can this be treated by... READ MORE

I do not think you look distorted at all. I think you look good, perhaps somewhat full in the cheeks, but actually refreshed. READ COMMENT

This sounds like a very well-thought out rationale for the pin hole / orange peel texture left by fractional lasers. The lasers are removing columns of skin, and contrary to what the laser manufacturers say, these columns do not always... READ COMMENT

You know I've been thinking about this for a long time. So many people complain of fractional lasers causing visible micro-holes and orange peel texture. To me, a laser or any ablative procedure would naturally take off layers of skin... READ COMMENT

Overall, would you say that this was a lighter dermabrasion, or done deeply? READ COMMENT

I had a spot dermabrasion to acne scars, and also experienced the raised areas. I was also concerned that this might have been impending scarring, but they did flatten out. I think this is just residual inflammation and swelling which... READ COMMENT
