Fat Transfer to Top and Bottom of Feet - New York, NY

I received fat transfer to my feet not for cosmetic purposes but because I had destroyed the fat in my feet with multiple steroid injections I received for Morton's Neuroma. MN is an inflammation of the nerve between the toes which often occurs to women over 40 who run or wear high heels.... READ MORE

After Two Weeks, Noticeable Difference - Followed by No Difference Dubai, AE

I was extremely skeptical about Thermage CPT, assumed I would not get any visible result and was going to settle for a result of buying myself another year of not aging as much. In part, I believed this would be the outcome because I was doing it in Dubai where the doctor was not going to use... READ MORE

Ultherapy Wash DC (Face, Neck, D├ęcolletage) - Washington, DC

I am 53. Normal weight (130 at 5'6") Problem areas: My jaw line has gone soft with age and my brows have dropped to the point where I look grim or stern when my face is relaxed and not animated. I don't want to get a brow lift because I fear that the subtle amount that I want lifted would wind... READ MORE

Fat Transfer to Lower Lip, Philtrum, Side of Nose, and Mental Crease - New York, NY

I have a very long upper lip. Although I'd like to get an upper and corner lip lift, I wasn't ready to shell out the 25K that one famous doctor wanted to do the 3 procedures he recommended I need.

I felt the most comfortable with Dr Baker. The fact that he does a lot of reconstructive surgery around the mouth, is... READ MORE

Questions from Becoming Stronger

How could a doctor make my face more proportional and, if possible, attractive? (photos)

I have already seen multiple top revision rhinoplasty surgeons who said that my dream of having a nose that was not so short and over-rotated is not possible. So any thoughts... READ MORE

Can a bullhorn lip lift be executed successfully when the patient has a shortened, over rotated nose? (Photo)

I have a shortened, upturned nose, thanks to 2 rhinoplasties. (Note: I had 2 consultations with revision rhinoplasty specialists who said the tip could not be de-rotated.)... READ MORE

That's no fun. Post surgery, you always hope for a trajectory that always is improving. But setbacks are normal, although frustrating. Hang in there! READ COMMENT

I am looking through your old posts and replies. Can you refresh our memories on the following: Length of original upper lip How many MM the first doctor removed How many MM the second doctor removed? What your final upper lip length... READ COMMENT

Did you ask the nurse why there is more swelling the second time? My upper lip is 22mm and my doctor said he would remove 8mm and if I want more taken out later he will do it. From what I am gathering, all lip lifts drop up to 3mm so... READ COMMENT

It is a personal preference. You may bond with him. Here were my reasons: 1) while his assistant very sweet, I found that she looked like she had a lot of plastic surgery done. (He was her doctor.) I want a very balanced, natural... READ COMMENT
