Spring is (finally!) in the air in New York City, and now is the perfect time to focus on improving your lifestyle and your looks. The snow and ice have melted after the last winter blizzard blast, and we can concentrate on increasing our well-being through better health and self-improvement – more rewarding activities than clearing sidewalks and avoiding slips and falls. There are numerous possibilities to accomplish these goals, whether through healthier diet, more exercise, or tending to those physical attributes that you’ve been thinking about changing: start with a visit to your plastic surgeon’s office. 

Non-surgical aesthetic treatments such as microneedling, Botox, and dermal fillers are popular all year round. For many of our patients, these are part of their routine anti-aging and rejuvenation maintenance regimen, including:

  • Botox to reduce lines and wrinkles from facial animation, and neck muscle bands
  • Fat injections or hyaluronic acid injectables to fill depressions or increase volume in the cheekbones and other areas of the face:
    • Fat grafts with stem cells to improve facial contour and achieve a mini facelift without incisions
    • Juvederm to fill depressions and wrinkles in the skin, and for lip augmentation
    • Voluma to increase volume in the cheekbones and chin
    • Volbella to correct perioral wrinkles and to produce overall lip rejuvenation
    • Vollure to improve deep nasolabial folds
    • Kybella to reduce fat and improve contour in the neck, and to reduce double chins
  • Skin rejuvenation with microneedling with or without PRP (platelet rich plasma) or chemical peels to help with:
    • fine lines
    • age spots
    • loose, crepey skin

Many of these non-invasive cosmetic treatments may be combined with plastic surgery. Here are some of our top surgical springtime procedures in NYC:

  • Liposuction: aimed at removing stubborn fat deposits and creating better body curves and contour, liposuction offers the best and most effective method of fat removal; final results will be obtained in time for sun, surf, and beach weather
  • Breast enhancement: you may be considering breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction, or a breast revision with a change in or removal of your breast implants; breast implant options include a wide variety of saline, silicone gel, and structured (Ideal) implant sizes to suit every woman’s wishes
  • Labiaplasty: reducing bulky or enlarged labia minora, diminishing excess clitoral hood, correcting differences in size and shape between the labia – these are all components of labiaplasty, and most women prefer to have surgery in time to fully recover before summer bathing suit and bikini season
  • Minimal Surgeries and Revisions: some patients are interested in smaller procedures, such as nipple reduction or areola surgery to improve shape or symmetry, while others are looking to revise a less than perfect result; often these surgeries are less involved than the original plastic surgery procedure and offer quick recovery with better results
