Did you know these 3๏ธโƒฃ methods of liposuction? โœจ

I ensure that my patients are fully educated on the benefits and drawbacks of each type before we decide which is best for them.

๐Ÿ’กLiposuction slims and reshapes the body by removing excess fat cells. This is not a weight loss procedure.

Would you consider liposuction?

"To have 'normal' looking breasts one day would be a dream come true." -This RealSelf patientโค๏ธ

After struggling with tuberous breasts for years, she decided to see what could help her feel more confident in her own body! Everyone has their own definition of "normal," and we always support a woman's decision to make the changes they'd like to help them feel like the best version of themselves.

๐Ÿ’กRoughly 5% of all breast augmentation patients have a condition known as โ€œhypoplastic tubular breastโ€ or tuberous breasts. This means that the breasts are underdeveloped, leaving them shaped more like a tube rather than being round.

Here is how I commonly correct this condition.

What do you think of this patient's stunning results?! ๐Ÿ˜

This 59-year-old underwent a full facial rejuvenation with:
๐Ÿ’›an endoscopic brow lift
๐Ÿ’›a lower eyelid lift
๐Ÿ’›a midface lift
๐Ÿ’›a full facelift

Call us to start your rejuvenation journey today! ๐Ÿ“ฒ 703-752-6608

Considering breast augmentation? You may be wondering which breast implants are right for you.

While you have several choices to make (implant size, type, incision, etc.), today I'd like to share more about gummy bear implants. The gel in a traditional silicone implant has a give to it. When the implant is vertical, the gel gradually shifts toward the bottom; therefore, silicone gel would not perform well in a shaped implant.

In contrast, the silicone in gummy bear implants is form stable, meaning it will retain its form, which mimics the contours of a natural breast.

We love our patients!

This tummy tuck patient shared a bit about their experience in this lovely testimonial to Dr. Hess and our staff at Hess Plastic Surgery.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€

๐Ÿ’› Restylane USA Kysse is a popular lip filler option amongst my patients. Have you tried it?

This lovely woman underwent a gastric bypass and lost a significant amount of weight... but afterwards, she was unhappy with the appearance of her arms.

I performed a full brachioplasty (arm lift) with extension of the incision down the lateral chest wall. I also performed some liposuction of the lateral chest walls.

These post-op photos are very early, and you can see how pink this patient's arms are. As with ALL scars, they can take a year or two to fully mature.

Would you consider an arm lift?

First day of fall = ๐ŸŽƒ +๐Ÿ + โ˜• + Skincare swap!

And if you don't know where to start, this post ๐Ÿ‘‡is for you!

๐Ÿ It's time to invest in a thicker, heavier moisturizer full of ceramides, an essential ingredient to retain your moisture barrier during the colder months!

๐Ÿ Start taking care of your post-summer dry skin with a hydrating body lotion

๐Ÿ Over-exfoliation is something to leave behind! As the weather gets colder, it is recommended to cut back on stronger ingredients like retinoids and glycolic acid

๐Ÿ Ever heard of a humidifier? It will save your skin during the colder months ๐Ÿ˜‰ Humidity is a great ally for your skin, keeping it hydrated and protected by a strong barrier.

This plastic surgery procedure treats gynecomastia, a relatively common condition characterized by abnormally large, firm breast tissue on males.

Thank you for trusting Hess Plastic Surgery and taking the time to share these sweet words ๐Ÿ’›

Capsular contracture is a complication that this RealSelf patient experienced three times.

Based on the research done on the topic and my medical expertise, what is certain is that any implant placed above the pectoralis muscle has a higher rate of capsular contracture.

We also know that when placed above the muscle, textured implants are less likely to cause capsular contracture than smooth implants.

Overall, it doesn't matter who the manufacturer is, saline or silicone, smooth or textured, round or contoured, etc. If you've developed capsular contracture several times in the past, you're likely to get it again.

Feel free to contact me for any other doubts you may have on plastic surgery procedures ๐Ÿ’š

Is acne all the same? Mmm, definitively not! โ›”

There are 3๏ธโƒฃ main types of acne:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Blackheads - Open bumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and dead skin
๐Ÿ‘‰ Whiteheads - which develop when dead skin cells, sebum (oil), and dirt clog your pores
๐Ÿ‘‰ Cystic Acne - Pus-filled pimples that can cause scars

Each type of acne requires a specific treatment ๐Ÿค”

For example, salicylic acid is preferred for treating blackheads and whiteheads, breaking down excess oil and dead-skin cells, while stronger treatments, like isotretinoin (Accutane), are used for cystic acne.

Are you struggling with acne? Always talk to your doctor about the best solution for your unique skin!

July: fun in the โ˜€๏ธ, beach trips, summer adventures, and ... UV rays!

This month, for UV Safety Awareness Month, be smart about your sun exposure and make sure you're taking the right precautions ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿค“

Extended exposure to UV light rays can lead to signs of premature aging and damage of your skin, such as wrinkles and liver spots, and even most skin cancers, including melanoma, basal cell, and squamous cell cancers.

Taking care of yourself during the hottest months can look like this:

๐Ÿ’›Choosing the right sunscreen - with a SPF of at least 15 and UV-A and UV-B rays coverage
๐Ÿ’› Covering up - with a good hat, sunglasses, and long sleeved shirts
๐Ÿ’› Staying in the shade - in the most intense hours, from 10 am to 4pm

Are you already taking these precautions? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Can't decide? I got you ๐Ÿ˜‰

Chemical peels are acids that sink into the skin and create microscopic wounds. Your body's response is to create new, healthy skin cells and rush collagen to the area (the perfect recipe for healthier looking skin)!

Vi peels, on the other hand, are a specific type of chemical peel that targets unwanted pigment changes like age spots, freckles, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Which one do you choose ? ๐Ÿ’š or ๐Ÿ’›?
