Chin Implant - Finally - Manassas, VA

I'm excited but nervous as we all are before any procedure. I first visited a Cosmetic Surgeon about a chin implant back when I was in my 20's. I seriously considered it at that time, but then the kids came along and my chin didn't seem to be that important. Three years ago, and six kids later, now on the back side of my 40's I again had time to focus on myself and those nagging side view... READ MORE

Still Waiting on Final Results - Richmond, VA

Had a lower bleph on May 30, 2013. It was the kind where they remove fat and tissue and suspend the sides (not sure of the proper name). Well its almost 7 weeks later and while I will admit the bags are gone, the scar line is very nice, they are very symmetrical and over all I'd call it a good result. Problem is I still have dark circles under my eyes that were not present before the... READ MORE

My Invisalign Journey - Culpeper, VA

I am 46 years old and had traditional braces about 20 years ago, but had a tooth bumped (child's head) which moved slightly and some significant relapse of my bite. I will update my journey here and give a final rating when treatment is complete. Today is June 1st, 2011 and I received my first set of aligners one week ago... READ MORE

Radiesse to Chin & Cheeks - Manassas, VA

Well I finally took the leap and committed to do something about my forever weak chin, and the fat loss in my cheeks following 50 pounds weight loss(and age at 46). I'm 3 hours post injection and absolutely LOVE it! For the first time in my life I actually don't mind looking at my profile, it was just enough with 1 syringe to give my chin definition, projection and a little lift of... READ MORE

12.5% isn't very strong and also its very hard to get the neck or decolletage to peal. If you don't get the results you are looking for try doing your own at home just going up to each next percentage until you get the results you want,... READ COMMENT
