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.”

Botox for Bone Density?

Botox by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069

Researchers at Yale University had a very interesting question that they decided to test recently… Does the quality of your skin have anything to do with the quality of your bones?

If you think about it, it does make sense that your skin and bones may have something to do with one another. The chemical building blocks, such as collagen, that make up many of the tissues in your body are quite similar, and those building blocks deteriorate as we age. If collagen breaks down at an early age in your skin, it is only natural that it would break down in your bones as well.

The research team studied 114 women and found that skin quality is in fact related to bone “quality”. Women who had more wrinkles, and deeper wrinkles, were also found to have less bone density than women with more resilient, better “quality”, skin. Their conclusion was that wrinkles may be a red flag for decreasing bone density, and a reminder to take good care of your bones (Calcium + Vitamin D supplements, exercise, regular bone density scans).

The new question arising as a result of this study is… “Since Botox fixes wrinkles, will it fix your bones too?”. Unfortunately, the answer is no 😦

Botox doesn’t change your skin’s chemical structure or it’s level of collagen production (both of these things are determined by your genetics). Botox simply relaxes the muscles the pull on your skin and thereby softens the appearance of existing lines, and prevents new lines from forming. Having less wrinkles because of Botox isn’t the same thing as having less wrinkles because your skin was strong and wrinkle-resistant to begin with.

The bottom line here is that if you have great skin, chances are that you have great bones too. And just as people with great skin should still consider Botox treatments to keep wrinkles at bay, people with good bone density should keep up with their nutrition and exercise regimens to make sure they don’t get “wrinkles” in their bones.

Botox for Migraines…My experience (update!)

Shea Slaymaker, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Dr Nicholas Vendemia, Plastic Surgeon New York City

It has now been a little over 4 weeks since I got Botox injections for chronic migraines.

I wrote my original article about 2 weeks after my first treatment, and I was still having a few headaches. At that time, the headaches were different (not as intense and did not last as long), but I was still getting them.

In the time after those first 2 weeks, and one touch up to add more Botox at the base of my neck and temples, I have been almost 100% headache free (something that no medication or alternative treatment has ever been able to do). I have had a few headaches over these past weeks (maybe 2 or 3), but they have been so mild that I cannot even remember when I got them.

The real test came this past week… work was crazy, I was sleep deprived, and not eating right (I should point out that it was also a full moon). Normally, stressful weeks like this trigger a terrible migraine that will last for days. Surprisingly, I haven’t had one headache, not even a mild one!

In fact, when I sat down to start writing this update, I actually had a hard time figuring out when my last headache actually was. I am so happy (and amazed) to say that I have not felt this good since 5th grade when I first started getting these headaches.

Botox may not work for everyone who gets migraines. But if you are like me, and have tried anything and everything for migraines without any relief, give Botox a try! You definitely dont burn any bridges, and even if it doesnt help your headaches, you still get the cosmetic benefit!

Is your “Plastic Surgeon” really a plastic surgeon? What you don’t know can definitely hurt you.

In a recent study, only 1 out of every 4 “cosmetic surgeons” in Southern California actually has formal training in plastic surgery! Even more shocking was the fact that 40% of cosmetic surgeries were performed by doctors who had NO surgical training whatsoever!! Dermatologists, otolaryngologists, ob-gyn’s, and even family practice doctors are offering cosmetic procedures now, and it’s up to YOU to know who’s legit, and who’s making false claims about their qualifications to perform Botox injections, mini-facelifts, and liposuction.
