7 Steps to Having Younger, Healthier Looking Eyes

7 steps to younger eyesIf eyes are the window to anything, it’s our age. From the purely cosmetic to minimally invasive treatments to surgical procedures, here are 7 steps to maintain younger looking eyes:

  1. Full brow lift:Is your forehead sagging? Are your eyebrows heavy? Rejuvenate the overall appearance of your skin by tightening the forehead and reducing the appearance of worry lines giving your facial features a more youthful appearance.
  2. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery): Do your eyelids droop, giving you an aged effect? Smooth the skin surrounding your eye by lifting the upper or lower eyelid. In this procedure, excess tissue is removed from the eyelid areas for a more youthful look and brightness.
  3. Your Arch Enemy: Aging brows age your entire face! Go for the anti-aging quick fix and get them in shape. Trim, tone and fill for a youthful appearance. If they are thinning, use brow powder to fill in patchy spots. Use a brow pencil to lengthen and color those gray hairs and disappearing tails. The difference will amaze you.
  4. Latisse: As you age your once lush lashes become shorter and sparser. Get long, thick, younger-you-but-better lashes back with Latisse, available here!
  5. Botox: Feel more mademoiselle but looking more madam? Smooth away those crow’s feet with Botox! As board certified surgeons, Drs Bruno and Brown are qualified to determine the best methods to achieve your desired results.
  6. PRP Injections: Had a long day (or month) at work? Nothing gives us away more than under eye bags. Fear not! PRP Injections or Fillers are ready to ride to the rescue. PRP is an injectable treatment that uses your body’s own blood, similar to a blood test, to reverse the signs of aging, restore or enhance facial volume, and improve skin texture and tone.
  7. Fillers: Fillers are an excellent way to get rid of under eye hollows that appear as you age. Fillers restore volume and rejuvenate the area under your eyes and upper cheek.

SculpSure vs CoolSculpting: Which Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Procedure Is Right For Me?

Bruno | Brown introduces SculpSure to our DC area office, a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in less than 30 minutes.

With so many procedures, how can we choose? Dr. Bruno answers our most common questions SculpSure.

 

Q: Does it hurt during the SculpSure treatment?

A:

There may be a mild sensation of the area being treated, but there is no pain. Patients are fully awake for the treatment, and it takes less than 30 minutes to have an area treated.

Q: Are the results permanent?
A:

Yes, results are permanent as long as one maintains a reasonable range of body weight, healthy living with good dietary selections and an active lifestyle.  

Q: How much weight can I expect to lose?
A:

According to the official SculpSure website, each 25-minute procedure can destroy up to 24% of targetted fat cells. It’s important to note that SculpSure, along with any other fat removal treatments (liposuction, Smartlipo, Coolsculpting), are not meant for weight loss but rather shaping and refining problem areas where fat deposits. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, good dietary selections, and an active lifestyle, one would expect some weight reduction. 

Q: What areas can I target with SculpSure?
A:

Many areas are amenable to treatment.  The most common are the abdomen, hips, flanks and thighs.  

Q: Are there side effects for either CoolSculpt or SculpSure?
A:

Both treatments are non-invasive methods of fat reduction.  It is not uncommon for patients to have bruising and itchiness after Coolsculpting. There may be some hypersensitivity of the area treated for a short time after the SculpSure, but patients will be able to go about their daily routine.

Q: What are the primary differences between SculpSure and CoolSculpt treatments?
A:

SculpSure uses topical laser treatment to reduce the underlying fat whereas Coolsculpting freezes the fat.  The treatment time is much shorter for Sculpture, only 25 minutes. CoolSculpting takes an hour per treatment. Another difference between the two procedures is the possible side effects. After SculpSure, patients may experience a slight tenderness. After, CoolSculpt patients have reported tenderness, slight bruising and itchiness.

The Bottom Line on Brazilian Butt Lifts

The Brazilian butt lift is designed to increase the volume and shape of your backside. Ultimately, you will notice the following benefits:

  • Firms and tightens the buttocks
  • Lifts the cheeks for a rounder, more perky appearance

Drs. Brown and Bruno will work with you to determine the ideal look, shape, and size you would like to achieve. In this meeting, the doctors will help you evaluate the following:

  • How to determine exact specifications to achieve your desired look
  • Your lifestyle, including activity and hobbies that may be impacted by this procedure.

This procedure uses Advanced Technique Fat Transfer to achieve your desired look. Fat grafting suctions fat from a donor site and is quickly processed for re-injection. This removed fat will be carefully injected into strategic areas of the buttocks.

Breast Augmentation: What You Need to Know 

If you’re feeling self-conscious about the size or shape of your breasts, you may want to consider breast augmentation. Breast augmentation can increase the fullness, symmetry and projection of your breasts to create the look you desire.

We offer several different types of breast augmentation, including the following:

Breast Augmentation: This procedure allows women to choose from saline implants, silicone implants and cohesive gel (“gummy bear”) implants.
•      Increases breast symmetry and projection
•      Increases and reshapes cleavage
•      Returns breast volume and shape lost after aging, pregnancy, or weight loss

Breast augmentation with fat grafting: Patients who would prefer not to use silicone or saline implants might want to consider breast augmentation with fat grating. This procedure increases breast symmetry, projection, and fullness while also doing the following:
• Targets unwanted fatty deposits
• Returns breast volume and shape typically lost after aging, pregnancy, or weight loss

Breast lift: Don’t let the fear of aging take away your self-confidence. This procedure reduces the appearance of aging on dropping breasts by restoring a youthful, perky chest.
• Improves position of the breast and breast symmetry
• Can restore cleavage
• Tightens the breast skin and shape

Every woman is different which is why Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown will work closely with you to achieve results you’ll love. At Bruno | Brown, our patient’s experience is just as important as the surgical result.

Are you a candidate for breast augmentation? You might be if you meet the following requirements:
• Are at least 18
• Are interested in breast enhancement
• Have breast asymmetry
• Are not currently pregnant or nursing
• Are in good health

Advantages of a Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, is beneficial if you have stretched, hanging skin around your midriff. A tummy tuck:

  • Removes excess fat
  • Removes sagging skin
  • Tightens stretched abdominal muscles

A tummy tuck may also eliminate stretch marks if they are located on the skin to be removed. A tummy tuck is often included in a mommy makeover because it removes loose skin and tightens the muscles stretched by pregnancy.

Fat and skin hanging from your body can feel devastating. This stretched skin is unlikely to regain elasticity, and diet and exercise will not eliminate it. A tummy tuck lets you achieve the midriff appearance you want, rejuvenating the contour of your body and improving overall body shape.

A major advantage to a tummy tuck is the longevity of results. Unless you gain back a significant amount of weight, your tummy should remain flatter and tighter for many years. A tummy tuck cannot stop how aging and weight-gain affects your body, but it can provide long-term results if you pursue a healthy lifestyle.
