YOUR EARS – AND EARRINGS – WILL LOOK FABULOUS!

Years of wearing earrings – coupled with the effects of gravity – leave many of us with softer, deeply grooved earlobes. The side effect is that earrings tend to droop and actually attract attention to this problem. Just like the rest of the body, ear lobes are affected by gravity and loss of collagen. We have the solution and it’s so simple.
Screen-Shot-2014-12-02-at-12.02The ears aren’t the typical part of the body we think of when we think of fighting the signs of aging, but over time your earlobes will lose collagen, thus lose elasticity and plumpness. This leads to sagging, furrowed, wrinkled and even elongated ear lobes. It is even more pronounced when you wear earrings, because lack of support from thin ear lobes that have weakened make earrings droop forward.

The great news is that this can be significantly corrected with the use of injectable dermal fillers to plump the ear lobe. We prefer to use Juvederm – the same filler that we use on the face – to correct the shape and strength of the earlobe by restoring volume.

Thus added support from Juvederm plumps up the ear lobe to its former shape and makes the earring hole not look so stretched out. Your post earrings will be seated better. Injections are done in our office in a single appointment – actually in just a half hour – and topical numbing is used for patient comfort. As corrective procedures go, this can be a very inexpensive fix for something that is bothering you. If you achieve full cosmetic correction most patients never need to repeat the treatment!

The results are long lasting rejuvenation of the lobes, keeping these tell tale hints of age at bay. There is virtually no recovery time, and you can show off those great earrings again immediately!

Call Wells Plastic Surgery and Skin Care at 859.255.6648 for a consultation with Susan Meers Wells, RN, MS, to see how Earlobe Rejuvenation can be achieved for you.

‘Brotox’ – Men Choosing Botox More Often Today to Increase Confidence and Look Younger

In our practice, our skin care team – as well as our cosmetic surgery team – is seeing more and more men looking for facial rejuvenation to remove wrinkles and to make them look more youthful and less tired.  This is the trend nationally as well.  The majority of our male skin care clients are ‘Brotox’ fans, and choose it as their first line of defense against wrinkles and the appearance of aging.

For our male patients, ‘Brotox’ is the perfect jumping off place to begin working on reducing wrinkles and regaining a youthful appearance.  Botox treatments will deliver smoother skin, and men report that having a younger look helps them feel more confident.  Botox is a very simple, quick procedure with no downtime, and men can be back at work or to a meeting immediately after the procedure.

Botox is an extremely effective injectable that relaxes the muscles in the area and sends wrinkles packing.  Botox treats and corrects ‘crows feet’ in the corners of the eyes, vertical lines between the eyebrows know as ’11’s’, and – most important for many men – virtually eliminates the horizontal wrinkles of the ‘furrowed brow’, or worry lines on the brow.

Botox treatments last approximately 4 months, and multiple areas can be treated in a single appointment.  Injections take about 10 to 15 minutes per area.

Choosing Botox can be a very affordable investment in a man’s self image that can make him look and feel younger and more relaxed.  Feeling confident can lead to feeling more competitive in the workplace and beyond.

Our male patients are very happy with their ‘Brotox’ treatments and you can see great results on these photos of actual Botox patients from our practice.

 

Call Wells Plastic Surgery and Skin Care at 859.255.6649 to schedule a consultation with Susan Meers Wells RN, MS to see how Botox can work for you.

Choosing a Plastic Surgeon: Doing Your Homework http://www.wellsplasticsurgery.com/choosing-a-plastic-surgeon-doing-your-homework/ http://www.wellsplasticsurgery.com/choosing-a-plastic-surgeon-doing-your-homework/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 18:28:35 +0000 http://www.wellsplasticsurgery.com/?p=1456 We all know that choosing a plastic surgeon is more than surfing the Internet until you find some pictures you like.

We all know that choosing a plastic surgeon is more than surfing the Internet until you find some pictures you like. Doing a little homework to make sure you know the questions to ask to qualify your doctor is key.

About Website Photographsasps-logo

Pictures are important and we have a lot of them on our website, where all of our photos are of our surgeries and even the models have been our patients. Be aware that on some plastic surgery websites that pictures are sometimes stock photos or may even be copied from another surgeon’s website.

Choose Only a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

The one thing to make your search easier is to look for a surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There are a number of self-proclaimed cosmetic surgery boards and societies that require very little training or qualifications beyond a license to practice medicine. If they are simply ‘board certified’ don’t assume its in plastic surgery. The American Board of Medical Specialties governs certification requirements not only for Plastic Surgery but many other specialties such as Radiology Dermatology, and General Surgery. There are other board certified specialties, such as ENT, Dermatology and Ophthalmology that perform cosmetic procedures within their area of specialty.

Have More Than One Consultation

It is also wise to have a consultation with more than one plastic surgeon. Face to face interaction with your surgeon and his staff helps you determine your comfort and confidence level. You are entrusting them not only with your appearance, but also with your safety and well-being. Cosmetic surgery may well establish a life-long relationship with a practice that can help guide you through life’s stages. While you may not be thinking that long term, comprehensive practices provide services such as lasers, skin care, facial and even makeup counseling that can enhance your surgical results as well as reduce the effects of aging and the environment.

Hospital Privileges

While many surgeons have their own surgical suites, it is important to know if your surgeon has hospital privileges to perform your surgery. This assures that their skills have been reviewed and approved by their peers to perform surgery in their facility.

Experience is a Must

Experience is essential when choosing a plastic surgeon. You many not want a surgeon that does hundreds of assembly line breast augmentations, but you do want someone with a good reputation and a proven history of good results and happy patients. Be sure to ask your friends who have had plastic surgery about their experiences.

Go With Your Gut

It ultimately comes down to the doctor/patient relationship and how comfortable you are going forward. Were you well informed? Were all your questions answered? Did the surgeon himself (or her) take time to listen to your concerns and clearly understand them? Because when it comes down to it, it is all about the understanding between you and the surgeon when you are in that operating room together.

Dr. Henry Wells of Wells Plastic Surgery and Skin Care is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and of the prestigious American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

While the tummy tuck – or abdominoplasty – is our most frequent abdominal procedure, there are times when it is not appropriate.  After extreme weight loss some patients have excess skin that extends to the back, so we usually recommend a lower body lift in this case.  This procedure will not only tighten the abdomen but will also lift the lateral thigh and buttocks.

Patients who benefit from this have usually lost more than 100 pounds and have often had bariatric surgery for weight loss.  These patients often initially say that they only want to fix their tummy.  However, if the excess skin in the back and sides is not addressed, a nice flat tummy will actually make the flanks and back appear even larger.  In my practice the massive weight loss patient will start with the lower body lift.  The next step is usually a breast lift and arm lift, followed by thigh lift.  Staging the procedures allows an opportunity to do any revisions that might be needed during the subsequent stage.

The remaining extra skin following massive weight loss is a complex problem and should be addressed with a plan tailored for each individual patient’s needs.  Losing weight from surgery or diet and exercise is a huge benefit to the health of these patients.  Unfortunately, the aesthetic outcome may not be as great.  Removal of excess skin and restoration of a more normal contour can complete the transformation, restore self-esteem and improve their quality of life.

Dr. Henry G. Wells at Wells Plastic Surgery and Skin Care was one of the first plastic surgeons in the Lexington, Louisville and Eastern Kentucky area to perform the lower body lift, and is one of the few who regularly perform it today.
