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 months of careful deliberation, I decided to go for facial rejuvenation - upper/lower eyelid surgery,... 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 self-conscious. Throughout my school years, people would comment on my teeth. When I was in the 3rd grade... 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.(I'm not into taking medication when there's an alternative). After just two photofacial... 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 the surgery, and want to maintain a more youthful appearance(and protect my investment!). This means... 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 was extremely painful, and I have a very high pain threshold. I was left with multiple and deep... 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 becoming one of those frozen, BOTOX-faced women. He assured me that this wouldn't be the case. He... READ MORE

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 to see what they will look like in about 2 months. From previous experience with cosmetic... READ MORE

Hi Teddyjo. The implants significantly improved them. It did not completely eliminate them. But the difference is good - something I'm quite happy with. At some point I'll have to check out filler for lip lines, but with the implants,... READ COMMENT

I cannot recall the exact sizes, but the length was the longest and the diameter was the middle one - not the largest or smallest. They measured my lips and assessed the amount of tissue in place, along with my desire to have... READ COMMENT

Dr. Steven Pearlman located at 521 Park Ave. He did a fantastic job. READ COMMENT

I can't remember the diameter. The folks at the plastic surgery center measured my lips for the length and then we discussed diameter. They recommended the middle of the road diameter - not the smallest or largest. I wanted visible... READ COMMENT

I've had a different type of implant than yours, Permalip (made with solid silicone elastomer), for almost 5 years now and I have no problems with them. I can pucker my lips, whistle, drink from a thin straw - anything I could do before... READ COMMENT
