New Year, New You!

carrie - ultherapy modelJanuary is a busy month for board-certified plastic surgeons. Part of the holiday boom can be attributed to New Year’s resolutions and the “New Year, New You” aspirations that naturally arise with a fresh start to the year. Facial rejuvenation treatments like Botox or dermal fillers are also popular Christmas stocking stuffers, so people are eager to get in right away to use them.

Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers a variety of cosmetic solutions to help patients put their best face forward in 2017. Here are a few to consider:

Refresh your skin

Injectable fillers are a quick, easy way to restore a youthful appearance to the face. Botox or Dysport can give you a brow lift without surgery. Lasers can be used to diminish bruising if necessary. Restylane is a popular filler for the mid-face and cheek area. Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse can be used to diminish deep lines along the sides of the mouth.

Chemical peels and facials are often recommended for dull, lifeless skin. These spa-like procedures can prompt the body to heal the effects of aging with little to no downtime. Everyone wants a fresh radiance to the skin. Going one step further, celebrities like Bar Rafaeli and Kim Kardashian have recently undergone “The Vampire Facial,” a series of platelet-rich plasma injections that prompt the body to produce an abundance of collagen.

Boost your body

Now is the perfect time to start addressing love handles, saddlebag thighs, and stubborn stomach flab. Laser energy heats up and destroys fat cells, which are processed and eliminated from the body as any other toxin. Body contouring can be done in multiple weekly sessions lasting just 25 minutes at a time, with several inches of fat melting off between six and twelve weeks. Skin-tightening and cellulite treatments can be done to alleviate rippling, dimpling skin as well.

Lose the double chin

Several years ago, liposuction and facelifts were the only ways to get rid of a double chin. Today, you can receive an FDA-approved Kybella injection made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced in the body that aids with fat absorption. The average treatment takes 15-30 minutes, with noticeable results within two to six months. There is no bruising or downtime – and the effects are dramatic, which has led some to call Kybella “a miracle fix.” The ideal candidate is a younger patient who has elastic skin and doesn’t smoke.

New Yorkers find renewal in 2017

If you have any questions about these procedures or other minimally invasive methods of getting a “New You” in the New Year, contact Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, an Ivy League educated, board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City for a one-on-one consultation.

Giving the Gift of Plastic Surgery: Essential Dos and Don’ts

Beautiful face of young adult woman with clean fresh skin - isolated on white

In the hands of a skilled surgeon, plastic surgery is a transformative experience that can restore a person’s self-confidence, self-image, and esteem. But many people are hesitant to make this investment for themselves, no matter how much they may desire it.

If your significant other has been expressing a strong desire for cosmetic enhancements or surgical reconstruction, the holidays are the perfect opportunity to give the gift of aesthetics. If you’re thinking of giving the gift of plastic surgery this holiday season, you can consult Dr. B. Aviva Preminger in New York City.

Do discuss the gift together

The anticipated surprise of a gift is often the most enjoyable part of gift-giving. But plastic surgery is not an ideal gift to surprise someone with. It’s essential to ensure that the intended recipient truly wants a cosmetic enhancement. Consider whether you’ve heard your significant other talk about a particular procedure on multiple occasions. If so, then plastic surgery may indeed be a good choice. However, it’s still usually a good idea to discuss the gift ahead of time to confirm that it will be well-received.

Don’t schedule a consult in advance

A gift isn’t supposed to place any sort of burden on the recipient. You may be tempted to go ahead and schedule the initial appointment for your loved one, but this is ill-advised for two reasons. Firstly, the individual who undergoes plastic surgery should always feel free to select the plastic surgeon. The decision to have plastic surgery is not one to be taken lightly; it’s essential that the patient feel comfortable with the surgeon’s expertise, skill, and bedside manner. Secondly, making the initial appointment for your loved one may inadvertently cause the recipient to feel pressured to have the procedure right away. The gift recipient should always feel free to make his or her own informed decisions.

Do offer reassurance

Some people may hesitate to give plastic surgery as a gift because they worry that the gesture will be misinterpreted as being a sign of diminished physical attractiveness. And indeed, this is a valid concern that must be carefully considered before gifting plastic surgery. Whether offering the gift of skin rejuvenation or a Mommy Makeover, offer it with plenty of reassurances that you love your significant other just the way he or she is.

Don’t neglect post-surgical care

Plastic surgery may be cosmetic in nature, but it’s still surgery and it requires a recovery process. When you give the gift of plastic surgery this year, let your loved one know that you will be there to provide care and support during the recovery period.

Gifting plastic surgery in NYC

If you are giving or receiving plastic surgery this holiday, selecting the right plastic surgeon is essential. Dr. B. Aviva Preminger is a board-certified, Ivy League-educated plastic surgeon who has successfully completed rigorous training programs, actively pursues ongoing professional development initiatives, and prides herself on her commitment to surgical excellence.

Dr. Preminger invites patients to schedule a one-on-one consult in her Manhattan plastic surgery office. Residents of New York City and the surrounding areas can call 212.706.1900.

Get Glowing Skin for the Holidays

Adult woman with beautiful faceEveryone wants to look their best during the holiday season as they attend parties and gatherings with colleagues, friends and family. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, leaving many to wonder if it’s too late to take care of those sun spots, jowly chins, marionette lines and other markers of age.  Fortunately, there are many skin rejuvenating procedures that are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, which means there’s still time to get glowing, beautiful skin.

New York City plastic surgeon Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers the latest in anti-aging technologies and treatments designed to boost collagen production, erase wrinkles and plump up skin — many of which can be performed on your lunch break! Here are some of the most popular facial rejuvenating treatments requested before the holidays.

Exfoliating chemical peels

Chemical peels are the go-to procedure for helping correct sun damage and pigmentation irregularities. Formulated with varying concentrations of alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), mandelic acid or glycolic acid depending on your skin type and desired results, this lunch-hour treatment also reduces the appearance of large pores and fine lines. Chemical peels gently exfoliate the outer surface of the epidermis, revealing soft, dewy skin. Lighter peels involve a day or two of redness and minimal peeling, while stronger peels with trichloroacetic acid will deliver more dramatic results, but with a slightly longer recovery time. For tighter, softer and smoother skin that glows, chemical peels are a safe and effective option.

Botox injections

Botox is one of the most requested rejuvenating treatments for good reason. It works wonders for smoothing away crow’s feet, eliminating worry lines between the brows, and banishing forehead wrinkles that add years to your appearance. The injections are virtually painless and within 4 days the furrows and wrinkles disappear as muscle contraction is stopped. Better yet, Botox is very well tolerated and few patients experience swelling or bruising, which fades within a few days. For a quick pre-holiday touch-up, Botox is highly recommended.

Laser resurfacing

Laser technology has evolved significantly over the past decade, with newer non-ablative devices that target specific areas of skin. Fractional skin resurfacing is not a lunch-hour treatment, but is still performed on an outpatient basis. The treatment heats up targeted areas of damaged skin, thus promoting the healing process and more collagen production. Recovery can take 7-10 days depending on the treatment, after which patients will see a notable improvement in fine lines, acne scars, sun spots and overall skin quality.

Thermage

Hooded eyes, loose jowls and sagging skin can make you look worn down.  If you’re not ready for a face lift, Thermage may be excellent alternative to improve the appearance of aging skin. This revolutionary treatment uses radio frequency energy to heat and cool the skin, which helps to tone as the collagen is immediately tightened. Most patients with moderate wrinkling and skin laxity will benefit from just one session, and there is absolutely zero downtime.

Dermal fillers

There’s been a lot of buzz about the “liquid facelift” with dermal fillers. While the results of facial fillers aren’t as dramatic or long-lasting, they do provide instant volume and lift in areas that have become hollow or sunken. Products like Radiesse, Belotero Balance and Juvederm are formulated for specific zones of the face: whether you need to fill in smoker’s lines, nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth, or rejuvenate the cheek contours. Results can last upwards of 18 months, and the injections take less than 35 minutes.

Whether you are ramping up for a holiday party or just want a more youthful appearance, Dr. Preminger is proud to offer her patients the safest and most effective skin care treatments. Book a private consultation by calling 212.706.1900.

Dr. Preminger Discusses Initiative Projects at 2016 Plastic Surgery: The Meeting

plastic-surgery-the-meeting-conferenceThis year’s Plastic Surgery: The Meeting conference was a huge success, bringing together thousands of the world’s leading plastic and reconstructive surgeons. The annual event, which is organized by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), enables doctors from more than 50 countries to share their latest research on surgical techniques, breakthrough products and emerging trends within the industry.

“These annual gatherings are vital to advancing positive patient outcomes and delivery of the overall best care possible,” explained ASPS President Dr. David H. Song. The 2016 international expo, held September 23-27 in Los Angeles, featured dozens of instructional courses and half-day seminars given by expert surgeons. Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, who chairs the Young Plastic Surgeon Steering Committee of the ASPS and also holds a seat on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons board, attended the five-day event, and provided great insight into the latest technologies and initiatives affecting the industry.

Plastic Surgery: The Meeting

The expo gave attendees a unique opportunity to learn about emerging skin care and beauty products as well as new technology used in minimally invasive body contouring procedures – many of which appeal to men. CoolSculpting, which permanently eliminates fat cells without incisions or anesthesia, is one of the most popular innovations, and is increasingly requested by male patients. “Patients in general, especially men, are looking for less downtime and quicker recovery… The daddy-do-over has become the logical counterpart to the mommy makeover,” Dr. Preminger told a Swivel newsroom contributor.

Other topics explored at the conference included breakthroughs in transgender surgery, the importance of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, which uses the patient’s own blood cell antibodies to promote healing, as well as major advances in dermal fillers that provide plastic surgeons with more options for rejuvenating targeted areas of the face.

Young Plastic Surgeon Steering Committee initiatives

In an interview with Healio /Aesthetics, Dr. Preminger took a moment to explain some of the exciting initiatives and service projects performed by the Young Plastic Surgeon Steering Committee at this year’s conference. The committee sold scarves and ties at the meeting in an effort to raise awareness and funds to benefit the Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day fund. The marketing project yielded over $22,000 for the BRA Day fund, which was established by the Plastic Surgery Foundation.

The Young Plastic Surgeon Steering Committee also held their yearly Fresh Faces panel, enabling young surgeons to present challenging, complex cosmetic and reconstructive surgery cases for evaluation by experienced mentors.

Bra Roll Reduction Enhances Silhouette and Confidence

Beautiful and naked female back view

Many women who suffer from unwanted back rolls may not realize that a simple procedure can reduce the fat in the upper back and greatly improve the look of the bra line. Body sculpting procedures can lead to a trimmer silhouette and improved confidence.

A bra line roll can emerge at any age but aging exacerbates it. The roll keeps many women from enjoying form-fitting clothing that will reveal the extra skin. Reducing a bra bulge enhances the overall body shape, bringing many women a renewed self-assurance.

Where does the bra roll come from?

Many people wonder why they have developed a bra line roll. It is mainly a matter of anatomy plus physical wear. To move the arms fully, the skin in the area of the shoulder blades stretches and over time it enlarges a bit. At the same time, the skin below it along the ribs remains fixed in place. Where the two areas meet, a fold of skin can emerge. Loose skin and extra fat can lap over that fold of skin on their own but a bra strap worsens the appearance by giving the area a straight, smooth band to drape over.

Treating an upper back roll

There are a few options to solve an unsightly bra roll but it responds best to a combination treatment. Liposuction is useful but it is really most effective in combination with procedures that break down the fat tissue so that the skin can be stretched and smoothed.

There are several options for breaking down the fibers around the fat in the back. Power-assisted suction lipectomy uses a mechanical rotating device while HydraSolve uses a pulsing effect with heat and water. For someone with greater fat deposits in the area, liposuction may play a greater role but that alone will not break down the tissues enough to allow the skin to be re-positioned back into a flattering contour.

When the procedure is performed on a woman, the incisions can be placed in the area covered by a bra. Many women are pleased with the way this hides the surgical marks.

Bra bulge reduction

Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved. The most common include bruising and discomfort. Other risks include infection, anesthesia complications, and nerve damage. Before any type of body contouring plastic surgery, it’s important to have a thorough discussion with your doctor about potential complications and recovery time.

Body contouring surgery in NYC

Dr. B. Aviva Preminger is a New York City plastic surgeon committed to helping each patient achieve the confidence they desire. If you are bothered by the appearance of bra fat rolls and would like to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Preminger, please call 212-706-1900.

American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Worried About Skin Rolls Around Your Bra Line? http://www.plasticsurgery.org/news/blog/worried-about-skin-rolls-around-your-bra-line

Dr. Preminger Discusses Nurturing Female Leadership Roles in Recent Article

glass ceilingAs a successful female plastic surgeon in New York City, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger knows first-hand the intrinsic and extrinsic obstacles facing women who pursue leadership positions in their careers. While almost equal numbers of both sexes pursue careers in the medical field, it is the women who are historically less likely to reach senior ranks.

Along with several of her esteemed peers, Dr. Preminger explored reasons for this gender gap as well as strategies for encouraging female leadership in a recent article published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery – the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

The article – entitled Melting the Plastic Ceiling: Overcoming Obstacles to Foster Leadership in Women Plastic Surgeons — discusses ways to overcome the so-called “glass-ceiling effect” that places certain disadvantages on women in the business world. Not only are women underrepresented in senior positions, they earn substantially less than their male counterparts.

The authors cite numerous roadblocks faced by women pursuing careers in plastic surgery today, from reduced confidence levels that might prevent one from seeking promotion and fewer networking opportunities to gender role biases ingrained in our culture. Although more dual-income families are sharing home and child care responsibilities than before, surveys shows that women surgeons still spend more time on parenting and household activities, which may hinder efforts dedicated toward professional advancement.

Creating a culture of women leaders

The article highlights the important and invaluable role that women leaders provide their businesses, and organizations – in the medical profession and other industries.  By employing non-traditional strategies, women can become their own best advocates, seeking career advancement, proper recognition, and equal salaries for equal work.

In order to support and nurture female leaders in the workplace, the authors suggest a multi-faceted approach that includes:

  • Increasing mentorship opportunities for women to help young talent jumpstart their careers
  • More self-advocating on the part of female plastic surgeons and professionals
  • Demanding better work-life balance
  • Increasing child care resources and facilities for working mothers
  • Ensuring promotion criteria are transparent for new hires
  • Recognizing women’s professional and academic accomplishments to encourage others

Within the specialty of plastic surgery, young women doctors are encouraged to volunteer for new opportunities, network with established female surgeons who are leaders in their field and seek out advanced training to enhance their skills.

Internet Liposuction Study Finds Surprising Results About Misinformation

man performing Google searchThe Internet has easily become the world’s library. Only a report released earlier this summer in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—Global Open® reminds us we shouldn’t believe everything we read, even on the web.

The official open-access medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Global Open has stated that consumers using the Internet to research liposuction are getting less than quality information. The report specifically cites lack of information on procedural risks and noticeably low quality or missing information on alleged professional plastic surgery websites.

What you learn when you google “Liposuction”

The study used popular search engines to see what the user typically found when entering unique but relevant keywords for liposuction. After excluding irrelevant and duplicates, the study uncovered close to 250 websites. The researchers then deployed a range of assessments to determine both the completeness and quality of each site’s information. While somewhere in the vicinity of 30 percent of the sites earned high scores, final results revealed “substantial shortcomings” in quality online information. This was especially disheartening considering almost three-fourths of the poorly reviewed sites were developed by plastic surgeons and plastic surgery practices offering liposuction services. Many of these sites made no mention of risks.

Sites with high scores tended to be not-for-profit enterprises such as portals, patient groups, academic centers, health departments and professional societies.

Learn about liposuction from an experienced plastic surgeon

Liposuction is known to be a generally safe procedure when performed by a licensed professional, but there are risks, including infection, fluid accumulation and fat embolisms. By law, patients have to receive literature about the dangers associated with liposuction. There are no laws that say this has to be done before agreeing to a procedure. This is a loophole many on the Internet seem to be taking advantage of.

Noted female plastic surgeon of New York City, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, believes quality information benefits patients and surgeons. Often, patients show up with their Internet information, believing they know everything they need to. Dr. Preminger now has to correct or supply procedural, quantitative and qualitative information, both benefits and risks, about liposuction.

Like the study, Dr. Preminger stresses the relative safety of liposuction but believes everyone has to know what to expect. She reminds anyone who is considering have the procedure, “Liposuction is a wonderful solution for removing stubborn fat deposits in the body. However, patients need to make sure they know exactly what the procedure entails, and have a one-on-one consultation with a licensed practitioner who has a history and education in liposuction.”

Female Plastic Surgeons Underrepresented in Leadership Roles

carrie - ultherapy modelWomen comprise roughly half of all graduates of medical schools. However, they are still underrepresented in the plastic surgery field in general and leadership roles in particular, according to a new paper that was published in the September 2016 issue of “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” which is the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

The paper was authored by five leading plastic surgeons, all of whom are women. Surgeon Debra J. Johnson of Sacramento, California was the lead author of the paper.

More progress is needed

Dr. Johnson and her co-authors wrote that the low numbers of women in leadership roles in the field means that “There are inadequate role models for the 14 percent of women plastic surgeons and 32 percent of female plastic surgery residents.” The authors go on to note that although women “bring unique qualities to leadership, yet there remain barriers to gender equality. Our failure to attract, nurture, and sustain women for leadership positions significantly reduces the talent pool of capable leaders in plastic surgery.”

Given that there is no difference in the effectiveness of male leaders versus female leaders, this discrepancy is unacceptable, the authors write. The paper identifies both intrinsic and extrinsic barriers that promote gender inequality in the plastic surgery field. One example of an extrinsic factor is the false, yet commonly held belief that women are somehow less competent than men in fulfilling leadership roles. Another extrinsic barrier is the disproportionately large percentage of responsibility that women typically assume in caring for their families and homes.

An example of an intrinsic barrier is the lack of self-confidence. “Women are less likely to have strong mentors pushing their careers, and are hesitant to seek promotion unless they are fully qualified,” write the authors.

Recommendations moving forward

Dr. Johnson and her colleagues have offered a set of proactive solutions that may help foster diversity and inclusivity in leadership roles in the plastic surgery field. Currently, the ASPS has a 12-member Executive Committee that includes three women.

The authors note that this is “an important milestone;” however, women are still clearly in the minority. The paper also calls for equal pay for equal work, institutional support to increase greater flexibility with domestic obligations, education regarding the criteria for promotions, and more mentorship opportunities for female surgeons. The paper also encourages female plastic surgeons to proactively prepare for and seek leadership roles. The paper concludes by asserting, “Women leaders are valuable and skilled assets that will help their organizations flourish. A commitment to nurturing the leadership potential of all plastic surgeons will exponentially increase the creativity and influence of our specialty.”

Visualize Plastic Surgery Outcomes with 3D Imaging

3dimagingIn the offbeat 1985 Disney movie “Return To Oz”, Princess Mombi had a chilling glass case full of different faces she could put on as she pleased. Some days, don’t we all wish we could choose a different face?

Now, with the potential of plastic surgery, you can look as beautiful on the outside as you feel on the inside. But how can you be sure the suggested changes will look as you imagine in your mind’s eye?

Now with Crisalix 3D Imaging, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger of NYC can offer her patients a realistic rendering of the possibilities to aid in surgery planning.

What is Crisalix?

Crisalix is web-based, “next generation” simulation technology that converts 2D photos into accurate 3D representations on par with motion pictures and video games. The advanced layers of depth and detail enables “patients to clearly express their desires and expectations and communicate more efficiently with the physician,” say the Swiss manufacturers. Crisalix also offers the first 3D Virtual Wardrobe, which allows breast augmentation patients the ability to see themselves in everything from bikinis to evening gowns.

3D imaging benefits for patients

In addition to breast augmentation, reduction or lift patients, Crisalix can be used in planning:

Crisalix 3D technology

“I have been working with Crisalix for [a few months now],says Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. B. Aviva Preminger. “I have to say, it really lives up to the hype! It’s really magical to see patients’ faces light up when they see what is possible – and it’s a very fun part of the consultation,” she adds.

Before and after photos have been the traditional way of showing patients what sort of results they might expect, but they are limited. “You have to really sort through your portfolio to find patients with similar body types and desires, which can be challenging,” says Dr. Preminger. Even when an ideal match is found, there still may be gaps in a patient’s imagination. The 3D images leave no uncertainty on what the end result will be.

Prospective patients who are interested in a consultation with Dr. Preminger, an Ivy League educated, board-certified, female plastic surgeon, are invited to call 212-706-1900.

Xeomin Now Available as Part of “Daddy Do Over”

male plastic surgery

Magazines and news outlets have popularized the idea of a “Daddy Do-Over”, the masculine counterpart to a Mommy Makeover. What starts as sympathy eating during a mom-to-be’s pregnancy can quickly turn into interrupted sleep while taking turns on baby duty. Later, school activities replace personal workout times, and — all the while– dad gets older and no longer springs back into shape at will.

Dr. B. Aviva Preminger offers cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgery for men who are looking to refresh their appearances, whether they are in the midst of fatherhood, busy climbing the corporate ladder, or simply want to look as young as they feel.

What is a Daddy Do Over?

When it comes to a Mommy Makeover, there is a general understanding of what it entails – bearing children places great strain on a woman’s abdominal and breast area, leaving damage that is exacerbated in the following years by gravity and the loss of skin elasticity that accompanies aging. There is not a standard menu of services that make up a Daddy Do-Over, however; individual patients choose to treat those areas that concern them most.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, while women are still the most common plastic surgery patients more and more often, men are requesting age-defying services.

The most common procedures men ask for include:

  • Blepharoplasty to repair droopy eyelids
  • Neck lifts to remove excess skin and improve jaw line contours
  • Rhinoplasty to balance out the proportions of the nose
  • Chin surgery to strengthen the look of the jaw
  • Liposuction to reshape the abdominal area, lower back, and sides
  • Male breast reduction for gynecomastia

Multiple procedures can be scheduled for a single session, making the “do-over” relatively quick.

Daddy Do Over featuring Xeomin

Dr. Aviva Preminger offers a full range of services for the man looking to reclaim his youthful appearance. We are pleased to announce that the most recent addition to the menu of services is Xeomin.

Xeomin is injected into muscles to relax them. In general medical practice, it is used to treat muscle stiffness in adults suffering from spastic limbs or neck pain. In cosmetic practice, Xeomin is injected into facial muscles to reduce moderate to severe frown lines that appear between the eyebrows. It can also be used to treat crow’s feet, squint lines, and eyebrow lifting.

Xeomin, like Botox, is a neuromodulator that temporarily reduces the nerve impulses that tell the muscles to contract. Xeomin is different in that it is “naked”, with no additives.

Male plastic surgery in New York

Preminger of New York is a practice dedicated to providing a full range of cosmetic services to both men and women. Dr. Preminger is a specialist in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and treats patients with an honest and compassionate approach.

To learn more about a Daddy Do-Over in NYC, contact Dr. Preminger for a confidential consultation by calling 212-706-1900.
