You are at the market when you see an old friend. You go to wave, but then stop yourself, afraid your upper arm will do more waving than your hand. Sound familiar? You are not alone. Many men and women are self-conscious of the appearance of their upper arms. For many of our patients at Midsota Plastic Surgery, an arm lift not only helps improve the appearance of their upper arms, but also provides a much-needed boost to their self-esteem.
Men and women often come to us at Midsota Plastic Surgeons with questions as to whether or not they are a good candidate for a tummy tuck—and it’s a good question to ask! As with any cosmetic surgical procedure, you must first know and understand if you are a good candidate.
According to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 15.5 million minimally invasive procedures were performed in 2016 alone. Laser procedures, including ablative and non-ablative treatments—along with laser hair removal—accounted for a good percentage of that high number. This is not an anomaly, a new report estimates that the popularity of cosmetic laser procedures is only going to continue to grow— with the industry experts anticipating that the market for cosmetic laser treatments will nearly double in the next five years.
When we meet someone new or reconnect with an old friend, we subconsciously gather information about that person by his or her appearance. Some of this information, a person can control — putting on a stylish outfit, applying makeup, trying a new hairstyle, etc. However, some things are less controllable due to the natural aging process. Wrinkles, loose skin and bags under the eyes could all be making you look older, sad or tired even though this might not match how you feel inside. One of the first places we look is at a person’s eyes. More »« Previous Page — Next Page »

Hit the hay, catch some z’s, get some shut eye, take 40 winks, turn in. What a lot of ways to say sleep! Judging by the number of words used to describe it, a good nights’ rest is clearly very important to us. We have one more to add to the list—beauty sleep. Long been a part of our vernacular, new research shows that beauty sleep is in fact a very real thing. According to a new study published by the Royal Society of Open Science, men and women are deemed more attractive after a good nights’ sleep.
The statistics are in! The American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) recently released their yearly statistics for 2016. Showing the growing popularity of cosmetic procedures, altogether, over 17 million men and women underwent surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures to enhance their appearance.
As plastic surgery gets more popular, more people are asking questions around various procedures, treatments, methods, and more. Here at Midsota Plastic Surgeons, we have found that men and women are especially interested in non-surgical and injectable treatments. For example, a lot of our patients ask the question, “What’s the difference between Botox and a filler?”
This is a good question to ask because it isn’t initially clear what the difference are between Botox and dermal fillers. “Are they the same thing?” you ask. No, while both are injectables, Botox and fillers are not the same.
