What Areas Of The Body Are Best For Liposuction? Take Your Pick!

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Feb 20, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Want a better, trimmer shape? If you’ve tried dieting and exercise but still have stubborn areas of fat that simply won’t go away, liposuction could be the answer you’ve been looking for. By permanently taking away excess fat deposits, it slims and reshapes specific areas of the body, and at the same time, improves your body contours and proportion for a more pleasing silhouette.

Since fat cells do not reproduce, once they are eliminated by liposuction, they will not be replaced. This may be why the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery rates liposuction as today’s most popular cosmetic procedure.

The 7 Best Areas To Freeze Away Fat With CoolSculpting

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Feb 13, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Have you been carrying around your saddle bags long enough? Ready to lose your double chin? Do you long for a trim, toned, sexy tummy? If the answer is yes to any or all of these, you're a great candidate for CoolSculpting, a non-invasive body sculpting procedure that dramatically reduces stubborn layers of fat by freezing and then eliminating them from your body for good—without needles, surgery, scarring or downtime.

Unlike ultrasound- and heat-based fat-reducing treatments which actually explode unwanted fat cells, CoolSculpting works by freezing them. This causes them to die and get flushed from the body as waste, leaving you more toned and sculpted. This procedure has fewer side effects than other methods (which can cause bruising and soreness) and delivers more effective results.

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift And What Will It Do?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Feb 6, 2019 7:00:00 AM

As they get older, many people’s “behinds” go through several not-very-welcome changes. Caused by pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, prolonged sitting, genetics, or a combination of all of these, the butt easily droops, sags and becomes flabby.

A Brazilian butt lift (also called butt augmentation) can reverse these changes. It can also give you a firmer, larger, higher and more shapely butt than you had before. As well as the Brazilian butt lift, I also offer a wide range of other body sculpting procedures to help you achieve a more shapely body. To learn more, click here.

For many of my patients, no matter how much they exercise or eat a healthy diet, they still are not able to get rid of stubborn fat.

Ready For A Better Butt? Consider A Brazilian Butt Lift!

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jan 16, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Brazilian butt lift (also referred to as fat grafting to the buttocks or butt augmentationis a popular and highly effective way to achieve a fuller, firmer, more shapely derrière. It also can help patients attain a more pleasing balance between the shape, size and contour of their backside in proportion to the rest of their body. 

Recently, there have been some concerns regarding the safety of this procedure. When patients ask me if a Brazilian butt lift is safe, my answer is yes. As an experienced plastic surgeon who has performed hundreds of Brazilian butt lifts with very low complication rates, I believe this procedure is very safe. Major risks include 1) pulmonary or fat embolismblood clotfor less than 1% of patients, and 2) anemia.

There’s Never Been A Better Time For Body Contouring

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jan 9, 2019 7:00:00 AM

As I tell my patients, we’re really in a wonderful time in terms of body contouring. As well as plastic surgery, I can now offer many procedures that are non-surgical and have minimal downtime, if any, that provide excellent results. To learn how I can help you achieve a more beautiful body, click here.   

Many ways to get a better, sexier shape

One example of a relatively new non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatment is CoolSculpting, in which the patient is wide awake and a machine is attached to the area of the body where he or she wants to get rid of unwanted fat. The machine freezes the fat and then over the next few months, slowly flushes these destroyed fat cells from the body.

EmSculpting is another non-surgical body contouring procedure that uses a machine, in this case to tighten a person’s abdominal and/or butt muscles and melt away some of the fat. This treatment is really for patients who are in good shape who are just looking for some extra definition of muscle. They’re trying to get that 6-pack but don’t have time to go to the gym all the time. They’re not looking for major body contouring changes but want, say, a buttock lift with some enhancement to their gluteus muscles.

In addition, I offer fat-removing, body shaping procedures like liposuction which is surgical but can now be performed by using tiny little eighth-of-an-inch incisions and which only causes a little bruising.

Of course, I also offer more involved surgical procedures such as breast lifts, tummy tucks, Mommy Makeovers and lower body lifts where I’m removing fat, tightening muscle and removing skin at the same time.

It’s really a great time for patients

When my patients come into my office, I try and find a way to meet their expectations, to deliver what they want, either non-surgical or surgical, so I can provide the results they’re looking for without having to go through the type of big operation we had to do in the past. The new technology has really added a lot to our ability as plastic surgeons to deliver highly successful results to our patients without resorting to major surgery.

Want Fuller Sexier Lips? Lip Augmentation Is A Beautiful Solution.

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jan 2, 2019 7:00:00 AM

Many of my patients really like the shape of their lips, they’re happy with how they look, but they just want a little more fullness, what I call a little more “pow.” To achieve this, there are many fillers that can do that, either to enhance the line between the normal facial skin and the red skin of the lip, or to augment the top or bottom part of the lip, or both, to make the lips larger.

Then there are other patients who just aren’t happy with their lips. The overall shape isn’t what they want, they’re too thin, they don’t have enough structure to them, there isn’t enough of a difference between the lip and their facial skin, and their lipstick bleeds.

For these patients, I recommend lip augmentation, also called lip enhancement. This is just one of the many ways I can help you achieve a more beautiful face. To learn more, click here.

Do You Have Textured Breast Implants? Here’s Why You Should Contact Your Surgeon.

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Dec 20, 2018 12:10:56 PM

 

In the last few days, I have heard from a few of my patients who read a recent article in The New York Times stating that breast implants made by Allergan that have a textured or slightly roughened surface, rather than a smooth covering, have been linked to a rare form of cancer called breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma and are being taken off the market in Europe. 

There has also been a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons discussing anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. (To read the report, click here.) Naturally, they are concerned. 

I only use smooth, not textured, breast implants 

To reassure all of my patients with breast implants, as well as those who are considering getting breast implants, I want to state very clearly: 

I have always used ONLY smooth implants for my breast augmentation patients, not the textured ones cited in these two sources. The recent concerns do not involve these types of implants and my breast augmentation patients do NOT need to be concerned about this.

I offer three types of breast implants, all of them safe
