How we feel and how we look often seems to be a chicken-or-the-egg question. It’s hard to tell which comes first, looking better or feeling better. Certainly, one of those instances often arises after child-bearing or significant weight loss. But the desire for a better contour in the mid-section is not always prompted by any [...]

By | 2017-05-08T17:04:17+00:00 June 7th, 2017|ThermiVa|

Life can be hard on “the lady parts.” Childbearing, menopause, the side-effects of some life-saving treatment protocols, and even just aging can reduce sensation in the vulva and vagina, even make intercourse painful in some cases. Vaginal rejuvenation has been limited by low expectations as much as by the lack of options that once existed [...]

Sweating is, of course, a perfectly natural process of the human body. When we become overly heated because of hot temperatures or engage in vigorous activities, our bodies produce sweat as a means to cool us down.

Sometimes it’s the outline of the face that holds the key to reaching a person’s goals.

The chin, the cheeks, and the jaw line define the [...]

Rhinoplasty: Center Stage, with a Spotlight

By | 2017-03-31T14:46:33+00:00 April 26th, 2017|Rhinoplasty|

Physical beauty is what theater people would call an “ensemble production.” There is no one star that makes all the difference in the harmony and appeal that a person’s face communicates. Rather, the balance and interaction of every feature has an important role to play. Nevertheless – there’s no getting around it – the nose [...]

Liposuction: Achieving the Body Contour You Desire

By | 2017-03-24T15:46:09+00:00 April 19th, 2017|Liposuction|

Heredity and life experience can make some parts of the body harder to improve than others through diet and exercise. For many of us, there are still areas for improvement even after we’ve done our best. Liposuction is often the technique of choice for closing this gap to our goals; in fact, liposuction is consistently [...]

The thing about a “mommy makeover” is that it can be just as unique and individual as the mommy. Composed of any combination of cosmetic surgical or non-surgical techniques, a mommy makeover can take shape from a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, facial re-freshening, or any combination that suits a woman’s goals. Certainly, your life [...]

Steady and recently rapid advances in breast augmentation techniques – and the widespread acceptance of them – has brought with it more options, more reassurance, and more hope for women who face breast cancer surgery.

By | 2017-03-19T11:34:08+00:00 April 5th, 2017|ThermiSmooth|

Non-invasive procedures for rejuvenating the face and body are becoming ever more popular for good reasons.
