    • Spotlight: Liposuction Surgeons in: Liposuction Surgeons Tag(s):

      Getting a slim and fit body has never been so much easier than ever because of the presence of safe and advanced techniques employed in a body contouring procedure called liposuction. This procedure aims to get rid of stubborn, excess fats from specific areas of the body.

      People interested in liposuction need to be knowledgeable not only on the procedure they are about to undergo but on the specific plastic surgeon who is going to conduct the said procedure.

      It is needless to say that patients need to pick the right plastic surgeon to perform liposuction.

Doing this could spare the patient from any possible complications that may be incurred by irresponsible and incompetent surgeons.

    • Spotlight: Hair Transplant Surgeons in: Hair Transplant Surgeons Tag(s):

      Hair transplant surgeons – also called ‘Hair Restoration Surgeons’ – may possess varying skills and techniques and those are reflected in their medical routine and overall service.  The best Hair Transplant Surgeons are the ones who produce truly natural results. When done right, a hair replacement surgery can produce lifelong results that are so natural even hairstylists cannot detect them.

      When done right, hair restoration surgery, can restore a full and natural look in only one surgical session – almost always this is also regarded as ‘the best procedure’. Choosing the right procedure and the right hair transplant surgeon, however, is critical. There are several factors that prospective patients should consider when choosing the best hair transplant surgeon for their needs

    • Hair Restoration in: Plastic Surgery Procedures Tag(s):

      Keeping those crisp locks intact gets harder as a person ages. Male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness start to lurk around when someone reaches 40 and up. This is a natural response to old age, but there are some who can’t stand seeing themselves getting ‘hairless’ day by day.

      There are lots of medications available for hair loss. Topical solutions, shampoos, creams, and other various types of hair loss treatments can be used to somehow address the problem. However, these medications don’t guarantee sure-fire results, and some can even cause allergies and discomfort. This is where medical hair restoration comes in.

    • Spotlight: Facial Surgeons in: Facial Surgeons Tag(s):

      Facial plastic surgeons perform reconstructive and cosmetic surgery on the face, head, and neck regions only.

      A competent and qualified facial surgeon has the right credentials – just about critical to achieving a successful outcome.  Basically, a good facial surgeon should meet a client’s specific needs.  

      The best facial surgeon does not necessarily match with the rate – one charging exorbitant fees is not an indication of good repute.  Word-of-mouth and recommendations from first-hand clients as well as training tracks are preferred criteria for selecting a good facial surgeon.
