Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to non-invasively lift the eyebrow, neck and under-chin. NOW, FDA-cleared to improve décolletage lines and wrinkles!

Why Ultherapy at Pur Skin Clinic?
Our medical providers have over 40 years combined experience as Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology specialists. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy enables our team to see and treat the deepest support layers of the skin (typically addressed in cosmetic surgery), without cutting or disrupting the skin’s surface.

FAQ’S

How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy’s secret is ultrasound energy. This treatment incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows Pur Skin Providers see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered where it will be most beneficial and safe. Learn more about Ultherapy

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The ultrasound energy reaches all the way to the deepest levels of the skin; the same levels as those affected in surgical face lifting. This treatment jumpstarts a natural renewal process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. This new collagen lifts and tightens the many layers of the skin for a natural, long term, noticeable result.

Dr. D would like to celebrate summer, along with two big recent accomplishments.

Our Operating Room is now officially certified by the Institute for Medical Quality, based in California. We received a three year approval, the longest available. Now you can have safe\affordable surgery without going to the hospital.

Dr. D has also been re-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This is his second
re-certification, and we believe he is the first and only Hawaii plastic surgeon to achieve this accomplishment. Many older plastic surgeons, those certified prior to 1995, are not required to complete this rigorous ten-year process. Therefore, they are not forced to keep up with the latest techniques and may be practicing the same way they did over 20 years ago!

To celebrate these announcements we would like to offer you 10% off any office cosmetic procedures, with up to $1000 in savings. We are also offering 10-20% off all non-surgical treatments including Botox, Injectable fillers, and skin care products/treatments.

Call now because these special prices expires after Labor Day.

Reminder: Dr. D can now also see you at our Queens-West office.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed forms of plastic surgery in the world. As with most other plastic surgeries though there is no real ‘fixed’ cost to the procedure. You could pay a wildly different price depending on where you are located in the country. In this blog post we are going to take a little look at a few of the factors which could influence the cost of the Rhinoplasty.

• Perhaps the biggest contributor to the cost of Rhinoplasty is the amount of experience that the doctor has. The more experience your selected doctor has, the more they are likely to charge for the procedure. Now; this should not mean that you should go out there and grab a cheap practitioner. You should pay extra for the experience. Not only will the procedure be a tad safer, but the experience means that you may be a lot more likely to achieve your desired results.
• Many of the top rated plastic surgeons out there will have their own surgery. However new surgeons on the block may need to use the operating facilities of a nearby hospital. If this is the case then you need to be aware that the cost will go up. After all; not only will the doctor need to be paid but the hospital will need to be paid too. That being said; the higher cost may be worth it. Hospitals are incredibly safe places to have procedures carried out, and it is likely that the comfort being in a hospital will be significantly higher.
• Geographic location will also be a factor. If you are located in a large city then you should expect to pay more for your Rhinoplasty than any other place. The most expensive places in the United States to have a Rhinoplasty carried out will be in either New York or LA, both for rather obvious reasons.
• The type of anesthesia that is used during the procedure will also be a factor. You will need to be ‘put to sleep’ for the procedure. You will either be given general anesthesia or IV sedation. In some cases the doctor may need to hire a specialist to administer the anesthesia (if they do not have one on their staff already), and the cost of that will be rather high. Sadly this is a cost which is going to be very difficult to control.
• The extent of the reshaping will also be a huge factor in the Rhinoplasty cost. After all; some people may require a lot of work which will involve hours upon hours under the knife, others may be done in a far quicker amount of time. The only way in which you can control this particular cost is if you opt for something a little less extravagant.
• Some people may require greater after-care than other people. You will tend to need a lot more in the way of after-care if you undergo a larger procedure. For more information visit http://www.rodeodriveplasticsurgery.com/

While some women can regain their pre-pregnancy figure after child birth, some cannot and may desire a professional makeover. Known as a “Mommy Makeover”, this post-pregnancy surgical procedure entails a number of plastic surgery options. These options include targeted restructuring of areas of the body which, due to expansion during pregnancy and general weight gain, lost both the skin’s elasticity as well as muscle tone and have left women with fatty deposits unresponsive to diet.
tummy-tuck
While exercise and diet may help to decrease some of the after effects of pregnancy, not all bodily changes respond to these conventional efforts making the option of a mommy makeover a desirable choice for many women today.

During and after pregnancy, breast tissue may expand and contract due to general weight gain as well as breast feeding. While weight loss may be achieved, often the breasts can lose their pre-pregnancy firmness and shape causing them to look disproportionate to the mid-abdominal region. A mommy makeover using breast augmentation procedures can help to alleviate this disparity giving the breasts a more uniform look by either employing a breast lift, implants or a combination of both.

The abdomen, often the most troublesome to regain after child birth, can be reformed in a mommy makeover using abdominal restructuring. An abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck”, is often suggested when the post-pregnancy abdomen has lost skin elasticity and muscle definition. For some women, the abdominal expansion can cause separation of the stomach muscles which makes rebuilding of this area using conventional methods a challenge. With this procedure, the separated muscle layers are tightened and any excess skin is removed bringing a flatter and more toned appearance to the entire midsection.

Liposuction may be recommended for areas where excess fat deposits fail to respond to general diet and exercise methods. These areas such as the thighs, buttocks and hips, can be refined, toned and tightened by simple liposuction techniques.

The buttocks can be particularly problematic after pregnancy. Fatty deposits which cause a less than uniform appearance to the hips and back areas can be removed and the areas sculpted using liposuction and removal of any excess skin.

Women who were overweight prior to their pregnancies who have suffered with the added weight issues after delivery and women who have gained weight disproportionate to their natural frame may be ideal candidates and therefore benefit from a mommy makeover.

Considering liposuction? Are you a candidate?
In the battle of the bulge, many people are interested in exploring the option of liposuction as a way to get rid of unwanted fat. Liposuction is not a quick fix substitute for exercise or eating a healthy diet. Although the concept of suctioning excess fat may seem simple, liposuction is actually a complex medical procedure. The main challenge is to remove the right amount of fat without upsetting surrounding blood vessels and tissue. Also the surgeon must make sure to maintain the patient’s fluid balance.

Different Liposuction Procedures

In order to suction fat, the tissue must be broken up before it is suctioned through a straw-like tool called a cannula. Liposuction procedures differ in the way they accomplish this. Here are some examples:

1. Suction Assisted Liposuction
In Suction Assisted Liposuction, the physician manually breaks up the fat tissue by moving the cannula back and forth prior to removing it with a vacuum apparatus.

2. Power Assisted Liposuction
Power Assisted Liposuction uses a motor which enables the surgeon to break up the fat mechanically as opposed to moving the cannula back and forth.

3. Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction
With Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction, sound waves are used to emulsify the fat

4. Thermal Lipolysis
Thermal Lipolysis applies laser energy to break up the fat tissue. Although laser is a form of light, it converts into heat energy within the body.

5. Water Assisted Liposuction
Water Assisted liposuction applies a fan shaped water beam to loosen the fat tissue

You probably already understand that Rhinoplasty (or nose jobs), are occasionally necessary for medical reasons. However, many individuals today pursue nose jobs as a means of balancing their features and creating a more even or flattering profile. Nose jobs are a relatively simple and common procedure that can be performed easily by most cosmetic surgeons. Here is some more information for you to consider when you are pondering the possibility of a nose job.
rhinoplasty before and after
What exactly can nose jobs fix?
It can alter the size of your nose in relation to your face to create a more balanced profile.
It can change the width of your nose and even the position of your nostrils.
It can sculpt any visible bumps or indentations on your nose.
It can adjust a nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked.
It can even out asymmetrical nostrils.

What should I expect from my surgeon?
As with any medical procedure, it is important you find a surgeon that is not only qualified, but also willing to answer your questions. Your consultation should be extremely comprehensive. Your surgeon will discuss your desired outcome and anything that may be considered a complication in achieving it.

How is the procedure performed?
Typically, Rhinoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia and
occasionally local anesthesia when it is preferred or appropriate for your situation. Depending on what is being repaired, the surgeon will create a small incision through your nostrils typically (more complicated surgeries may involve incisions across the bridge of your nose), then the surgeon will carefully reshape the bone and cartilage to create your desired appearance.

What should I expect from recovery?
After a nose job, you will typically wear a nose splint for a minimum of one week post-operatively. It is normal to experience some bruising, swelling and even minor bleeding for the first few days. After your splint is removed, the swelling may still remain for up to six months, though it will like only be apparent to you and your surgeon. After you have surgery, you will want to wait six to eight weeks before you return to any strenuous activities.

In conclusion, rhinoplasty is an incredibly common procedure that many surgeons are well qualified to perform. If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, getting a nose job is not only a quick solution, but also a permanent one!

Eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Age, illness, and even heredity can result in puffy or drooping eyelids that cause individuals to look tired and worn out. In extreme cases, sagging eyelids may even interfere with vision. Eyelid surgery can correct this by removing extraneous fat and trimming sagging skin and muscle tissue. Once the incisions have healed and the swelling has gone down, eyes look rejuvenated, more alert, and youthful.

Selecting a reputable plastic surgeon is critical to a successful surgery. The surgeon you select should be Board Certified and have considerable experience with blepharoplasty. Once you have selected a surgeon, the initial consultation is very important. Make sure to bring detailed copies of your medical records, since the doctor will need to complete a medical history. The doctor will perform a close examination of your eyes and eyelids, including a vision exam, as well as discuss your goals for the surgery. Your surgeon will also use the initial consultation to go over the details of the procedure, the expected results, the risks, and the costs involved.

If you are considering eyelid surgery, it is important to thoroughly research the procedure, even if this just means talking over the details with your surgeon. Blepharoplasty is a relatively safe procedure, although like all other surgeries, you do run the risk of complications. When performed by a qualified surgeon, complications resulting from blepharoplasty are infrequent and typically minor. Minor complications may include temporary swelling of the eyelids, excess tearing, temporary blurred or double vision, tissue tenderness, sensitivity to light, and scarring at the site of the incision. More serious complications include infections and a reaction to the anesthesia used in the procedure. Occasionally patients find that they have difficulty closing their eyes after blepharoplasty. Most often this is a temporary side effect, although there have been reports of the condition becoming permanent. In rare cases, patients may experience a pulling down of their lower eyelids, called ectropion, which requires additional surgical procedures.

Most eyelid surgeries are performed under a local anesthesia which is used to numb the tissue and muscles around your eyes. Your surgeon may also give you a sedative, either orally or intravenously, to help relax you since patients are kept awake during the procedure. Under local anesthesia, you will not feel any pain but may experience some tugging or pressure during the surgery. In certain circumstances, some surgeons opt to perform blepharoplasty under a general anesthetic, in which case the patient is asleep throughout the entire procedure.

Eyelid Surgery For  Asians

The surgeries typically last from 90 minutes to 3 hours, depending on how many eyelids are to be corrected. During the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions along the natural lines of the eyelids – just under the eyelashes on the lower lids and in the deep creases of your upper eyelids. Excess fat is removed through the incision, and sagging muscle and skin are trimmed to neaten your appearance. Once the trimming is completed, your surgeon will use tiny sutures to stitch up the incision.

Once the surgery is complete, your surgeon will advise you on how to care for the incision. You will likely to be told to keep your eyes lubricated with an antibiotic ointment and take pain medication to control any discomfort you feel during the healing process. Cold compresses can be used to minimize swelling and bruising although patients will find that even with the compresses the swelling, tenderness, and bruising will be present for several days and may even last up to a month. Your eyes may tingle and feel gummy or dry for several days as well. Expect to return for a follow-up visit to your surgeon a few days after the procedure for a checkup and removal of your stitches.

Remember that the healing process takes time and it may be several weeks before you are completely recovered. In time the incisions will become less and less noticeable, fading into a thin white line that will be barely noticeable. The end result of the surgery though, should be brighter more alert eyes that make you look well-rested and youthful.
