Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery Near Calabasas

What is rhinoplasty?

This is a surgical procedure that is also referred to as nose job surgery or a "nose job."

Will my nose look perfect right after surgery?

Rhinoplasty before and after pictures will show a tremendous change in the appearance of your nose. You will have swelling in your new nose for three or four months after your procedure, and it will take about 12 months post-op for you to see the final appearance of your rhinoplasty in results. It is unlikely to be perfect, but it will be a dramatic improvement over your old nose. Dr Evans will  show you before and after rhinoplasty pictures of other patients to help you understand what results are and are not realistic.

Will insurance cover rhinoplasty costs?

Your insurance company may cover a portion of the cost of nose job surgery if your plastic surgeon reports to them that the surgery is necessary to modify the nasal passages to make your breathing easier or for some other type of medical need. If you must cover the entire rhinoplasty price yourself, Our staff will offer financing options to make affordable rhinoplasty available to you. For more questions get a free consultation at our facility near Canoga Park.

Facelift

What is a face lift?

A West Hills face lift is an elective surgery performed on the face and neck to eliminate slack in the foundational tissues and muscles, remove excess fat, and tighten the skin.

The person who can achieve the best outcome from a face lift is someone whose facial skin still has a certain amount of resilience, even though it has begun to sag. Potent, definitive bone structure is another characteristic of an ideal face lift patient, as is an awareness of the benefits and risks inherent in undergoing a face lift, and an understanding of the results they can reasonably expect to achieve.

Are there significant risks associated with a face lift?

It is rare to experience serious complications from an face lift, but every type of surgery involves risk and uncertainty. Risks associated with face lifts may include bleeding, nerve damage, infection, and negative reaction to the anesthesia. If you smoke cigarettes, you are more likely to experience inadequate healing following plastic surgery.

Eyelift (blepharoplasty)

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, also called an eyelift, is a surgical procedure that removes redundant skin, fat, and muscle from the upper or lower eyelids through tiny incisions. Any scars from the plastic surgery are hidden in the natural creases of the eyelid. Want to know more? Visit this page or fill out our free consultation form. We’ll schedule an appointment with you at our Woodland Hills plastic surgery facility.

What problems can blepharoplasty fix?

This procedure is the best option for fixing drooping eyelids, sagging eyelids, narrowed eyes, bags below the eyes, and a perpetually tired look. In some cases, eye lift plastic surgery is also used to improve obstructed vision.

How long will the results of my surgery last?

Many cosmetic surgical procedures, including blepharoplasty, do not provide life-long results; however, the benefits of eyelid plastic surgery in can remain visible for many years.

Butt Lift

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift, or Brazilian Buttock Lift, is a cosmetic surgery that can improve a shapeless or drooping butt and allow a quick return to normal activities. Using liposuction, excess fat in the hips, abdomen, and/or thighs is removed and used to add curvature to flat buttocks and reshape them. This butt lift in West Hills can also create additional projection of the buttocks, if you wish. The procedure provides you with a backside that appears uplifted and looks more natural and attractive than the results achieved with plastic surgery implants.

Can the plastic surgeon determine if I have enough body fat?

A Brazilian Butt Lift may not be a good choice for individuals who are very small in stature or those who are very slender and have little overall body fat; however, the plastic surgeon is often able to locate a sufficient amount of fat during the consultation to allow the butt lift to be performed successfully. If you are severely under your ideal weight, you are unlikely to be a candidate for this surgery. A consultation will help determine if you have enough body fat for this plastic surgery procedure.

What is the difference between a Brazillian Buttock Lift and butt implants?

Butt implants are silicone devices that are surgically placed into the buttocks to achieve the patient's desired shape, while a buttock lift uses injections of the patient's own body fat to achieve their desired shape. It is much easier to achieve a more natural look and feel using the natural fat than it is using the artificial implants. Also, by using the patient's own fat cells to enhance their buttocks, a Brazillian Butt Lift may also have a decreased likelihood of infection and allow the patient a shorter, quicker recovery.

Breast Augmentation – Get a Free Consultation at our Plastic Surgery Center near Canoga Park

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation and breast implants?

There are numerous reasons for considering breast augmentation. It can boost your self-esteem and view of yourself. It can change the way your clothes fit your body, and you may find that clothing that was unflattering to you before becomes perfectly suited to your figure. Loving your appearance will increase your self-confidence and your outlook on your life may brighten. An enormous number of women tell us that breast augmentation surgery has brought tremendous benefits to their lives. Among the most common reasons for choosing to have breast implants are:

·         Boosting pride and self-assurance

·         Enlarging breasts you believe are undersized

·         Enhancing your image of how others see you

·         Improving how you look in clothing

·         Making your breasts the same size and shape

·         Reclaiming breast size that has diminished following breastfeeding or weight loss

·         Restoring perkiness

·         Reconstructing after diseases that affect the breast, such as breast cancer

The plastic surgeon will discuss these and other questions with you.

What are the pros and cons of silicone implants vs saline implants?

Saline implants vs silicone? You can achieve an outstanding result with both silicone and saline implants, but it is important to know the differences of silicone vs saline implants. The major factors distinguishing silicone versus saline implants relates to the implants' future failure; specifically, identifying that the implants have failed and deciding what steps to take if they have failed. Both silicone-fill implants and saline-fill implants have identical expected functional years. You should not be concerned that either type of implant will cause health problems after they are placed in your body, and this includes after they have failed. There is a difference between silicone and saline implants in the way they fail. Failure of a saline implant allows the salt water contained in it to seep into the scar capsule. It then moves out of there, is soaked up by the body, and then expelled in the urine. Failure of a silicone implant allows silicone contained in it to seep into the area separating the implant shell and the scar capsule. Modern design of silicone implants limits this to a very small amount. Unlike the contents of saline implants, the small portion of silicone that leaves the implant does not also leave an unbroken scar capsule. It stays inside the capsule, save for a negligible quantity of microscopic beads.

In terms of aesthetics, failure of a saline implant causes the breast to get smaller, whereas the breast remains the same size after failure of a silicone implant. Your plastic surgeon can show you pictures of saline implants or pictures of silicone implants to help you better understand their design.

Choosing saline implants vs silicone implants is an important decision, so be sure to ask your plastic surgeon any questions you have so that you are confident in your choice and the results you will get from either silicone or saline implant before and after your plastic surgery.

Liposuction

What is Liposuction?

The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body's contour by removing excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle.

Realistic Expectations of My Liposuction Plastic Surgery?

After liposuction, the new body’s shape is more or less permanent. If a patient does gain a moderate amount of weight after liposuction, then the figure will simply be a larger version of the new body shape. Fat cells that are removed by liposuction do not grow back. Want to know more? Find out more by scheduling a free consultation at our West Hills plastic surgery center.

Which Body Areas can be treated by Liposuction?

The most frequently treated areas for women are the abdomen, breasts, hips, outer thighs, anterior thighs, inner thighs, knees, arms, buttocks, cheeks and neck. In men, who comprise about 15% to 25% of liposuction in patients, the most commonly treated areas include the chin and neck area, abdomen, flanks ("love-handles"), and breasts.
