These procedures are amongst the latest in anti-aging facial technology, utilizing your body’s own cells to rejuvenate your face without any surgery. Using these cosmetic stem cell treatments, you can refresh your face, returning to a more youthful look with minimally invasive stem cell procedures that harness your own cells to stimulate and develop new collagen. The collagen then continues to firm and tighten your skin from within. It is ideal for patients who wish to refresh their look naturally with beautiful subtle results that don’t look overdone [such as with stretched skin]. These procedures are performed in the clinic.
Volume loss to the face is a highly visible component to the aging process and can be restored either with fillers or stem cells from one’s own fat. Fat grafting, through a gentle hand harvested method, purification process and micro-droplet injection technique, improves durability.
This cosmetic stem cell treatment is a natural alternative to the traditional facelift [that involves cutting] and an effective alternative treatment to traditional facial fat injections. It refills areas of the face that have lost fat, particularly around the facial muscles due to injury and age. New collagen is created from your own stem cells and added to areas of the face lacking volume. It restores muscles, forehead, eyebrow, cheeks, mouth, and chin to provider a fuller face and achieve a younger look. The procedure restores the youthful contour and shape of the face as well as skin tightness. It also helps to even out color irregularities caused by the aging process and environmental sun exposure.
The stem cell facelift involves removing fat from one’s own abdomen or thighs to put into those regions of the face that start to lose fat. Only small amounts of fat are removed so this should not be confused with liposuction. Using blunt cannulas (which are 1 mm hollow tubes with a blunt end and a small hole through which the fat comes out) the fat is injected as little droplets throughout the areas of facial hollowness and no sutures are necessary. By using this micro-droplet technique, grafted fat has a much higher blood supply so that cell survival is improved and the results are smoother. Typically, the “downtime” for facial recovery is 4-7 days although one can be fully active during that time.
During the Micro Needling process, the face is numbed by a topical cream and micro needle points are applied to the face with a derma pen and then covered with your own PRP and stem cell mask. Platelets in your blood contain numerous platelet derived growth factors that stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinoctyes which produce collagen and keratin. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles.
The procedure is not a facelift but helps to restore or enhance the areas. Improvement of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within three weeks and improvement continues for the next 8 months as more collagen and keratin is laid under the skin. Typically, the downtime is 2-3 days.
These procedures are an alternative to cosmetic stem cell treatments. Their main attraction is that they are less expensive and the process takes less time. However, they do not last as long.
Botox is typically chosen to treat dynamic wrinkles that occur when the face is in motion or making an expression as it will reduce their motion and visibility. These wrinkles are usually positioned in the forehead and around the eyebrows. Botox achieves this by reducing the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. For some, the reduced expressiveness that can result is considered to be a significant downside.
Facial fillers work for static wrinkles, which are visible even when your face is relaxed and making no expression. Areas that are depleted and sunken will benefit from the fullness that facial fillers can give them.
Neither Botox nor synthetic fillers will last as long as the Facial Fat treatment. Whereas facial fillers serve to substitute the loss of collagen and volume, they do not generate natural collagen as does your own fat.
With age, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result excess skin and fat can gather above and below the eyelids. This can cause sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes. You can change this with cosmetic eyelid surgery. In some cases, blepharoplasty may not always be the first choice. Newer, less invasive techniques that utilize fillers or fat transfer can add volume around the eyes or the brow, smooth wrinkles and add fullness to hollows.
Compared to other surgeries, blepharoplasty has almost no pain, has less swelling, and has the fastest healing period of any cosmetic surgery. Because of this, it is one of the most satisfying cosmetic procedures performed. Our eyes tend to age more quickly than other parts. Blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) removes excess skin (and sometimes fat) from the upper and lower eyelids to give you a natural, rested and rejuvenated look.
This can be done either under general or local anesthesia. The doctor makes fine incisions in preexisting natural creases, making them virtually invisible within a week. After closing the incisions with tiny sutures, the procedure is finished, typically in just a few hours. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a similar procedure, which removes fatty pockets from below the lower eyelid without any skin incision. In this type of surgery, the doctor makes incisions inside the lower eyelid and then removes or repositions the fat. Sutures are typically not required, and there is no scarring at all.
You will probably experience some minor swelling and bruising after blepharoplasty, but those issues resolve after just a few days.
This is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears. You might choose to have otoplasty if you’re bothered by how far your ears stick out from your head or if your ear or ears are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. The results of this procedure can be impressive in adults as in children.
Otoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that takes approximately two hours and may be performed under local anesthesia (awake with the area numbed). The doctor will choose the otoplasty procedure that’s best for your ears, reshaping the cartilage to provide a better silhouette, and hiding incisions behind the ears. Any post-surgery pain is minimal and easily addressed with over-the-counter medication. You’ll probably be able to take off your bandages in a few days, though bruising and swelling may last a bit longer.
Your Shape, Your Way.
Would you like to get rid of your double chin? Be able to wear sleeveless shirts without worrying about your upper arms? Love handles bother you at the beach? Or is your belly more prominent than you’d like? Liposuction is the answer to these issues and more. This safe, painless procedure can help create the shape you’ve always wanted, by removing extra fatty tissue from your:
Liposuction can make virtually any part of your body look slimmer and more toned: a remarkable remake for your face or body.
Liposuction is performed under a local anesthetic in our surgical suite. During the procedure, the doctor will insert a cannula (a very thin tube) under your skin and suction fat through that tube. The doctor uses very small cannulas, which provide smoother results, less post-procedure discomfort, and especially tiny entry sites, about the size of a freckle.
You may experience some bruising and swelling after the procedure, but it usually begins to abate after a week. Due to the post-procedure swelling, your new shape won’t be obvious for one to three months, but the eventual effects will be permanent.
Though liposuction is a non-invasive procedure, it should always be conducted by an experienced cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Kayem has been performing liposuction procedures for satisfied patients for over 30 years.
