VOLUMA Victory!

It’s been about a month since I took the plunge with Voluma and I love it! My Sculptra from about 4 years ago was fading away and I couldn’t wait to try Juvederm’s latest product. Voluma did not disappoint! My cheekbones are defined and I got a more youthful lift to my cheeks as well. Even though I just had a birthday that pushed me into the “dark side” of my 30’s, I look better than I did 10 years ago! In my experience, Voluma is a definite game-changer in the world of fillers offering superior volume and lift (formerly only available with Sculptra) with instant results. Thinking about refreshing your look? I say Spring-forward with Voluma this season! If you have any questions or want additional information, please feel free to call my at MAS 917-703-7069

Lip Enhancement: Commentary from a Makeup Artist and a Plastic Surgeon

How to choose a lipstick, how to choose a lipstick color, Demure Makeup by LindseyLINDSEY LOPEZ: Professional Makeup Artist, San Antonio, TX

As a professional makeup artist, I’ve noticed a trend that has me wondering. LIPS!

I have seen some overdone lips that no longer have a natural look. In fact it looks like some have bad allergies or puffiness from waking up after a long nap. And, I have to say, that using nude lipstick on over-filled lips confuses me as a makeup artist. The cracks in the lips are emphasized with some nude lip colors making large lips look milky and not very luscious. Additionally, if you are wearing nude lipstick, you are taking away from them which makes me wonder why you got them fuller in the first place.

If you want fuller lips, my recommendation is to attract attention to them with color! Also some face shapes and eye shapes look better with smaller lips. It really comes down to personal preference and what makes you SMILE! J Makeup is meant to enhance your features and many products can do that for you.

New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia MD of MAS | Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery Plastic Surgery New York Plastic Surgeon NYCNICHOLAS VENDEMIA, M.D.: Plastic Surgeon New York City

Lip enhancement is one of the most difficult injectible procedures, so it’s no wonder that there are so many overfilled, unnatural trout pouts! Here are my recommendations to make sure your lips turn out to be luscious instead of laughable:

  1. FIND AN EXPERIENCED INJECTOR: We’ve all heard the old adage, “you’re good at what you do”, and it couldn’t be more true for advanced injections like lips and cheekbones. You definitely want to have your lips done by someone who is qualified to be doing injections in the first place, and by someone who does lots of lips (not many doctors do). Don’t be shy about asking your plastic surgeon about his or her level of experience with lip enhancement, and make sure that you trust their answer before you dive in!
  2. LOOK AT BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS: One of the easiest (and best) ways to find out whether or not your injector is experienced with lip enhancement is to ask for Before & After photos. If they do not have any, or if their photos do not show consistently excellent results, you should probably go elsewhere.
  3. BE REALISTIC: Lips come in all shapes and sizes. Some are extremely thin, while others are enviably full without any enhancement whatsoever. If you’re in the thin category, even the most experienced injector won’t be able to give you Angelina Jolie’s level of plump, and if you let them try, you’ll wind up looking like one of the Beverly Hills Housewives! Lip enhancement is not about having a “fuller” or larger lip. It’s about having more of the pink part of your lip (the vermillion) visible, about having the perfect balance between your upper and lower lips, and about smoothing out wrinkles on the lip surface. Your lips should not be bigger and puffier after lip injections that are done well… they should just look prettier!
  4. GET SOME MAKEUP TIPS FROM A PRO: If your lips are extremely thin, remember, be realistic, and use a combination of subtle lip enhancement with a product like Juvederm, and a makeup lesson from a pro like Lindsey! Juvederm will allow more of the pink part of your lip to show so that Lindsey has a bigger canvas to work with, and as she said, a splash of the right color goes a long way towards lips that appear fuller and more fabulous!
  5. IF YOU GOT BAD LIP INJECTIONS, THEY CAN BE FIXED: If you’re not happy with the result of your lip augmentation, don’t lose hope. Most of the time, there are ways to improve the results, especially if you’ve been injected with a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler like Juvederm or Restylane.

Men are having more cosmetic surgery!

Plastic Surgery for Men, Plastic Surgery, New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more and more business men are having cosmetic procedures to stay ahead of their competition in the workplace.

Both surgical and nonsurgical procedures are increasing in popularity with men, but Botox and Injectible Soft Tissue Filler treatments, such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra, are standing out from the crowd. There is a growing group of men who believe that looking younger and healthier gives them a competitive advantage in making sales deals, obtaining a promotion, or securing a new job.

According to New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia of MAS, “About 90% of the people having cosmetic procedures are still women, but the percentage of men having Botox and Fillers has almost doubled in recent years, and continues to rise very quickly. It’s obvious that having a little help in looking good isn’t just for women any more.”

Bristol Palin’s “Jaw Dropping” Plastic Surgery

Bristol Palin was reported to have jaw surgery recently to move her entire lower jaw forward and down in an effort to improve the alignment of her teeth and the overall look of her face.

Bristol is very happy with the procedure since she feels like she looks “older and more mature”, which we agree with. “She definitely looks more mature, especially in profile, and her face is in better proportion with her newly positioned jaw”, says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia.

Dr. Vendemia adds, “For the most part, I think Bristol’s surgery was a success, but there are alternatives to having such a big operation with an extended recovery like Bristol’s procedure.”

Lisa’s Lumpy Lips! Longer lasting fillers aren’t the best option… (via Celebrity Plastic Surgery)

Think permanent fillers are the way to go for Lip Augmentation? Think again… Check out this great article on the risks of using permanent and long-lasting fillers in the lips.

Lisa's Lumpy Lips! Longer lasting fillers aren't the best option... Last year, we told you about Lisa Rinna’s corrective lip surgery that she needed to fix the lumpy oversized lips she got from silicone injections. As you can see, her lips look dramatically better than they did when they were overflowing with silicone, but that doesn’t mean Lisa is out of the woods in terms of developing further problems. She was most likely attracted to the idea of using silicone to augment her lips because silicone is a permane … Read More

Does Green Tea cause extra bruising after Botox and Filler injections??

Green tea causes easy bruising, bruising after injectibles, bruising after botox, bruising after juvederm, Botox New York City, Juvederm, Radiesse, RestylaneGreen tea is full of powerful antioxidants, which have great health benefits, such as a decreased risk for heart disease, increased ability to fight certain cancers, anti-inflammatory effects, weight loss, and an increased longevity. However, if you are taking green tea supplements, or drink a large amount of green tea daily, you also need to be aware of the side effects.

What many people don’t know is that large amounts of green tea (particularly green tea extract) can have a powerful blood-thinning effect. This makes it difficult for your body to form a blood clot, and may lead to excessive bleeding and bruising after any invasive procedure or surgery (including injections and small in-office procedures). The blood thinning effects of green tea are most profound with consumption of 10 or more cups a day, which is a “dose” that can be easily exceeded with supplements like green tea extract.

This is not to say that you should stop your green tea… just be aware of it’s effects as a blood-thinner, and make sure to tell your health care provider if you take it (or any other herbal supplement for that matter).  Most of us wouldn’t think of telling your plastic surgeon that we take green tea supplements before having something as simple as a Botox injection, but this piece of information is actually a very important one. The effects of high-dose green tea can be powerful enough to result in significant bruising even from the tiniest needles and the smallest procedures, so don’t forget to say “green tea” when your doc asks “What medications do you take?”

Don’t let that hump get you down in the dumps!

If you are not quite happy with the way your nose looks, you’re not alone.  Rhinoplasty remains one of the top plastic surgery procedures in the country. It’s no wonder since you can’t really hide or disguise your nose.

You’re also not alone if the idea or cost of surgery is not something you can handle right now. There is good news, though!

Liquid Rhinoplasty or the “Non-surgical Nose Job”  has become popular in the past few years as a method of changing the shape of the nose without an operation.  It is not a rhinoplasty, as the term implies, but it can help you in a similar way.

Did Lip Injections Cost Mia Lee Her Job?

Mia Lee was a famous Los Angeles TV personality before she suddenly fell off the face of the earth! She hasn’t been seen on TV for over a year now, and we’re all wondering why?

Could it be because she got awful lip injections? Or maybe even permanent lip implants?

We think so, but we’re hoping, for her sake, that she got injected with one of the temporary fillers like Juvederm or Restylane. If not, it’s going to be a very long time before we see her again. Silicone injections and lip implants can only be reversed with more surgery, and the more surgery Mia has, the longer she’s going to be out of work.  Let’s hope she was smart and got the temporary injections… ask your favorite plastic surgeon for more details!
