A New Year, A New You

Happy New Year! At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, we believe in New Year’s resolutions, but only the ones that are easy to keep. Goals or transformations that will bring about lasting change and improve your life. Maybe something like facial rejuvenation. In fact, if you’ve been contemplating a cosmetic procedure, 2014 is an ideal time to bite the bullet and debut a new you. Surgical and non-surgical procedures are growing in popularity and are more affordable than ever!

So, if you’re thinking that your skin isn’t looking as perky as it did last year, why not book an appointment with an expert within Beautologie’s Medical Aesthetic Department for a photo facial, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peel? Our aesthetic technicians are known to work miracles with something as non-invasive as our superior grade skin care line. And if you’re feeling as if your wrinkles are a little deeper than they used to be, maybe it’s time to think about a consultation with one of our Medical Aesthetic professionals to discuss how Botox© Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as Restylane©, Juvederm© and ArteFill© can help smooth out the grooves that may have you looking a little older than you feel.

Don’t worry if your issues go deeper than some brown spots and crow’s feet. All of the doctors at our three locations; Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu are trained in the very latest cosmetic surgery techniques…. techniques that can tighten and lift your sagging upper lids (an upper blepharoplasty) and remove the fat pads on your lower lids (a lower blepharoplasty) that seem to sprout up overnight, making you feel older and appear more tired than you’d like. If your problem area of concern is a sagging neck, no worries. We can lift it back to its former glory.

Saline vs. Silicone Implants

If you are thinking about having breast augmentation surgery, there are many factors to consider, one of the most important being which type of implant is right for you. At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, our highly skilled surgeons utilize both saline and silicone implants in their breast augmentation procedures. There are pros and cons to each.

Silicone implants were frowned upon during the ’90’s. Eventually they were pulled off the market. After much testing, the FDA discovered no link between them and autoimmune disease and re-approved them for use in 2006 after a complete redesign. The main advantage of silicone implants for many women is that they feel more like a “real” breast. There’s also little to no chance of “rippling or wrinkling” in the implant, making them a great choice for women, especially petite women with very little breast tissue to start with. The primary disadvantage of silicone implants is that when they rupture, the break is often hard to detect. An MRI is required to detect a break in the outer capsule. The inner portion of the implant is made with a solid silicone that has the consistency of a “Gummy Bear” and does not leak the way the old liquid silicone implants did.

This is not the case with saline implants. When one of them ruptures, the breast completely deflates as the body reabsorbs the saline. The other main advantage to saline is that the implant can be size adjusted after placement. With saline, the surgeon inserts the implant rolled up like a cigar and then fills it with the appropriate amount of fluid once it’s already in place.

Advantages of Our MediSpa

Since their inception in the late 1990‘s, the medical spa hybrid, commonly referred to as a “MediSpa”, has become so popular throughout this country that they’re now the fastest growing segment of the $11 billion dollar spa business. It turns out that men and women like getting their non-surgical cosmetic treatments like Botox, fillers and chemical peels in a relaxed, comfortable, spa-like atmosphere. The downside of many of these MediSpas, though, is that the aestheticians and technicians do not always have the proper oversight of a medical professional.

Since many of the services offered at a MediSpa qualify as a medical procedure, they must be performed or supervised by a doctor. Flip open the phone book and you will find dozens of “MediSpa’s” doing these treatments, but you will not find a Doctor actually located there. RN’s, business people, and even aestheticians are the only ones on site, which is technically not in the best interest of the patient.

Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center is 100% owned and operated by Medical Doctors who have the best interest of their patients and their own reputation on the line. We are much more than abiding by the laws; we exceed the guidelines set for Medical Spa’s. Our doctors are on site, ready to see patients daily!

Because we pride ourselves on always putting safety first and delivering the best possible care to our patients, Beautologie has a full time nursing staff and Doctor on site during all office hours. Dr. Milan Shah is a medical aesthetic specialist and the Director of our Medical Aesthetics Department. Not only does he bring his expertise in aesthetics and anti-aging medicine to every Medical Aesthetic patient, overseeing their charts and tracking their progress with his team, but also actually sees each and every patient at some point during his or her treatment.
