Looking for More on Top - Beverly Hills, CA

After researching tirelessly, I settled on Dr. Yovino at Elite Body Sculpting. They seemed like the best for the lipo since they are known for it and advertise no scars or incisions.. We settled on doing my flanks and abs. They call their procedure "up a cup". I started as an aa cup and was hoping to be an A plus some after. I said not sure since its been 5 weeks and I am not sure I'm a cup...

I am a male in my 40's that works out but just cant seem to get rid of the love handles no matter how much cardio and sit ups I do, I get the difenition but the fat covers it.

I lost 100+ pounds through diet & exercise but even with single-digit body fat percentages, I could not get the aesthetic I wanted in my midsection due to loose skin.

26 Year Old, Juvederm for AMAZING Lips! - Beverly Hills, CA

I received one syringe of Juvederm in my lips as well as xeomin for my frown lines in my forehead. I wanted fuller lips and one syringe was perfect. I definitely will be going back for more!

Getting High on Oxygen

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious issue and has recently been a hot topic with the NFL. The treatment is mostly preventative but in a July 2015 ESPN magazine article, Joe Namath spoke highly of the positive effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) on TBI. HBOT is performed in a sealed transparent chamber and delivers 100% pressurized oxygen to the body. HBOT has been utilized for burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, the treatment of the bends, wound healing, and delayed or...

Facelift Complication and Techniques to Minimize It.

A facelift is also known as a rhytidectomy in the medical literature. It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures performed and can consistently be found in the top five in the United States. Although the satisfaction rate is very high, a facelift is not without known complication risks. One of the most common significant complications is a hematoma. In this case, a hematoma is a collection of blood underneath the skin. The incidence ranges but overall is...

Cool Sculpting Cryolipolysis Body Contouring

As of 2013, liposuction has replaced breast augmentation as the most popular surgical procedure with 363,912 procedures performed. This clearly shows that the public wants to improve their body image. But not everybody wants to undergo an invasive procedure and new less-invasive energy based modalities have gained popularity. Keep in mind that less-invasive means less of a result. Even if you are not seeking body contouring, you are almost guaranteed to see an advertisement...

Airbrush Laser Liposuction.

The old way of Lipo is unfortunately all too common in today's cosmetic scene. I have abandon this technique and evolved to a more elegant detailed approach that results in a smooth predictable contouring. The bottom line is that you want someone with a lot of experience, a passionate focus, an eye for beauty and shape, and an ability to master the latest laser assisted power assisted liposuction. You can definitely find that at my office.

Buffalo Hump or Cervicodorsal Fat Pad

A “buffalo hump” is also known as a cervicodorsal fat pad or lipodystrophy. This is an increase in fibrous fatty tissue over the lower neck and upper back that can result in a hunchback look. It is associated with different diseases and medications. Unfortunately, the hump is not concealed with clothing or well-hidden by any other means. The excess fatty deposit is also associated with symptoms of neck restriction, neck and upper back discomfort, and...
