Cosmetic Surgery for men- 2014

My Dermatology Residency in New York (Mount Sinai University) and the ensuing Cosmetic Surgery fellowship in California was quite broad . I graduated in 1999 and became versed in a variety of procedures including face and neck lifts, liposuction, fat transfer and laser surgery. At that time men accounted for only 1-2% of my patients and my experience with cosmetic surgery in men was very limited. Much has changed in the past 15 years.

Men now constitute about 25% of my aesthetic clients. The last Great Recession and a variety of other social and socio-economic factors have resulted in Americans working into their 70s and even 80s. My male patients fall into 2 main categories: Young men in their 30s and 40s with Acne scarring and older distinguished professionals into their 60s, 70s, and even 80s. The treatment of Acne scarring has significantly progressed. The advent of fractional CO2 lasers, PRP and stem cell fat transfers, Subcisions and more has allowed these patients to significantly and safely reduce their scarring. http://www.foreveryoung.net/acne-scarring.html

My older patients are contemplating cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons. One that stands out again and again is to excel in their profession career. Unfortunately discrimination against older individuals is rampant in many industries. Older men are not regarded as cutting edge or up to date with the newest technologies. Many of my clients work with or even lead a team of much younger men and women. They feel that their age and “Aging” is starting to be a handicap and want to do something about it. For these particular reasons I have developed the concept and technique of “Quadrafecta”. http://www.quadrafecta.com/

As a Dermatologist and Cosmetic Surgeon I have various tools to tighten and lift the skin, fill in depressed scars and hollowness under the eyes, jawline and more, resurface sun damaged skin, remove excess fat in the jowl and neck area, and replace the lost Collagen. With over 20 laser and light sources at my disposal I can chose and pick to see what combination is best for my patients. I can then perform them all in one visit and under local anesthesia. This is a partial list of options available to me:

Ultherapy (Ulthera)- Ultrasound deep Face, eye and neck lift

Pelleve- superficial Radiofrequency face and neck lift

Mixto Laser _ Co2 fractional laser for fine and deep lines

Fat Transfer- with Plasma Rich Protein and Stem cells

Fillers- Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane

Chemical Peels- TCA and Jessner Peels

Smartlipo Triplex- fat removal and skin tightening with Smartlipo Laser

IPL Photofacial- Light source to remove brown spots and Blood Vessels

Diolite Laser- Laser to remove larger blood vessels

COOltouch Laser- Non ablative laser to tighten pores

Clear and Brilliant Laser- to remove fine line and brown spots

Thermage CPT- Body lifting with Radiofrequency

Relume- Removal of light scars with focused UVB light

YAG 5 laser- Removal of discoloration and irregular pigmentation

Using the most up to date technology and the power of combining different modalities has allowed me to achieve long lasting results that appear natural. All these procedures can be performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation and require little downtime. Looking natural is of paramount importance to my male patients. Choosing non-surgical lifts and lasers can achieve these goals. Please contact me for a free and confidential consultation.

Yours,

Dr. A. David Rahimi

Non Surgical lifting of the Neck, Elbow, Knees and thighs

Combination Pelleve and Mixto fractional CO2 laser for the lifting of the skin in the buttocks, knee, and elbow/arm area.

I have been practicing Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery since 1999. One of the most difficult areas to treat is the loose skin in the elbow, knee, and neck area.

Body, arm, and thigh lifts work but cause a lot of scarring and require significant downtime. I have now treated several patients with a combination of Pelleve Radiofrequency and Mixto fractional CO2 laser and achieved great results

Please research these 2 modalities on our website and e mail me directly with your photos.

Pelleve face and neck tightening; now also on legs, knees, thighs.

I have now performed over 20 Pelleve treatments in the past few weeks alone. I have to say that I am quite impressed. This device can tighten the fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and chest, and even the back of the hands with no downtime.

There is no peeling or flaking and no crusting and scabbing. I had a patient recently who had Pelleve treatment and went directly into the Studio to record a show.

We are also getting good results with tightening the skin on the elbows, knees, and thigh area. I do believe that these areas need 3-4 treatments over several months.


Please watch our video online and e mail me with photos for a free “e- consultation”.

I will let you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure and the exact fees involved.

But implementing the treatment regimen is just as important

 During the consultation process we chose from the following procedures and devices the 4 that will suite you best. Occasionally a fifth procedure is needed to address all the aspects of the aging face.

 Ultherapy (Ulthera)- Ultrasound deep Face, eye and neck lift

Mixto Laser _ Co2 fractional laser for fine and deep lines

Fat Transfer- with Plasma Rich Protein and Stem cells

Pelleve Skin tightening can improve Acne Scarring

The key to the best possible results when it comes to Acne scarring treatments: use multiple modalities. By using a variety of procedures such as needling, Fat Transfer, TCA Cross, Diolite laser, Cooltouch Lasr, Mixto Laser, Dermabrasion and more, we can achieve a significant and permanent reduction of Acne Scarring.

Our newest tool is the Pelleve Radiofrequency system. Pelleve penetrates 1-2mm into the skin and cause Collagen Remodelling. I have seen a reduction of active acne and tightening of the pores in addition to improvement of superficial acne scars. Deeper scars still benefit from Subcision, Mixto fractional CO2 laser and PRP fat transfer.

Smoking Ages the Skin

Please read this morning' CNN article on Twins and Smoking.

I personally see this all the time in my own patients. Smoking ages your skin 10-15 years- period.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/31/health/smoking-aging-identical-twins/index.html?hpt=hp_c3

(CNN) -- Here's something to think about the next time you put a cigarette to your lips: The skin around those lips is going to look older, faster.

You're also more likely to get bags under your eyes sooner. And jowls. And more wrinkles around those lips.

Researchers in Ohio studied the physical differences between the faces of nonsmokers and their twins who smoked and found confirmation of a long-held belief: Smoking does indeed age you

Pelleve Skin tightening now available at Forever Young, Inc. Los Angeles CA

In addition to Ultherapy and the newest Thermage (Thermacool ) CPT we now also offer the Pelleve system to tighten the skin of the face, neck, arms, knees and more. Please read more about this fascinating treatment on our website:

http://www.foreveryoung.net/pelleve-radiofrequency-lift.html

Pleasant, comfortable treatment. Immediate and lasting improvement.

If you’re wondering how you can refresh your appearance without surgery, the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System may be right for you. The Pellevé System safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and no downtime. In fact, patients who have had a Pellevé treatment say it feels like a warm facial massage.

The Pellevé treatment can:

  • Be performed in your doctor’s office in less than an hour
  • Create visible results that start to be noticeable right away
  • Provide results that last

The Pellevé System offers a different type of experience; a more pleasant and more natural one, with results you can feel good about.

Science

Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is skin tightening and contouring with a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture. Pellevé's unique radiofrequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, which create a heated treatment zone. Increased resistance causes heat buildup at the subdermal junction. Heat induces collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. Protein stimulation causes new collagen formation and production in the dermis which also results in epidermal tightening. Existing bands of collagen tighten in subcutaneous fat, creating a superficial tightening of the epidermis.

and for more information you can watch several videos on Pelleve' YouTube channel

Probiotics and Skin Health

I found this fascinating article by Dr. Rosenberg on Probiotics and skin health. I believe that he has many valid points in the article.

By Dr. Rosenberg

How Probiotics Help Create Healthy Skin

If you came into my office and asked me how you could create healthier, younger-looking skin, one of the things I would ask you about is your intestinal health.  You may wonder what the connection is and this is what I’d tell you.

Beautiful Skin Reflects A Healthy Gut – Probiotics Can Help 

Your skin needs a lot of things to stay healthy and look its best.  It needs adequate water to stay hydrated and prevent sagging, careful cleansing and moisturizing, some sun protection, a nutrient-rich diet, and adequate sleep.  Dull, unhealthy looking skin makes you look much older. 

What you may not know is that healthy, youthful-looking skin starts deep in your gut where vitamins are absorbed. Your skin needs vitamin A, the B vitamins, vitamins C and D as well as the minerals copper and zinc to be healthy and look great.  If your gut’s ability to absorb these nutrients is impaired these critical skin vitamins cannot be absorbed properly.  The strength of this nutrient absorption process depends on the amount of beneficial intestinal flora  - or good bacteria – your gut has.

Intestinal conditions like constipation, diarrhea, leaky gut syndrome, and overgrowth of Candida bacteria weakens the strength of your intestinal flora.  Restoring the proper intestinal flora through probiotics can rescue your gut health and, in turn, your skin health.  Let me explain.

Your intestines are the center of your immune system.  They house millions of beneficial bacteria that help your intestines function properly.  When you indulge in too much junk food, particularly too much sugar or alcohol, are under a lot of stress, or took antibiotics for an infection, Candida bacteria can overgrow in the gut.  This suppresses the good, Lactobacillus and bifido types of bacterial flora that supports good health.  Also, just getting older can result in a decrease of these beneficial intestinal bacteria.

In addition, if you’re not consuming enough water or fiber, proper elimination function can decrease.  Instead of all those toxins exiting your body through waste and urine, some get released into your blood stream.

Your skin, the largest organ of your body, also acts as a filter to help your liver and kidneys remove unwanted toxins.  Conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne, sagging, dryness, premature lines, inflammation, rashes, poor color and tone can all become aggravated as your skin tries to release unnecessary toxins.

How To Use Probiotics For Good Skin Health

You may now understand how the health of your skin reflects your intestinal wellbeing.  To that end, I frequently counsel my patients on the right foods and supplements that will help their skin stay healthy.  There are several delicious foods that contain probiotics, as well as individual supplements, to help ensure that your intestinal flora stays working correctly.

  • Yogurt, Kefir, Buttermilk.  These are dairy products that contain beneficial lactobacillus and/or bifido bacteria. Look for brands that say, “Contains active cultures.”  Even most lactose intolerant people can eat yogurt, kefir and buttermilk as the cultures have digested the lactose in these foods.  Try with small amounts to see how you’ll react.  
  • Fermented foods. Kimchi, sauerkraut, miso, natto, sourdough bread, tempeh, all help build intestinal flora.    
  • Probiotic supplements. There are many brands of probiotic supplements on the market.  Look for a good pharmaceutical grade probiotic that contains about 1.50 billion live CFU’s – colony forming units.   I know that amount may sound excessive, but your body naturally, in a healthy state, contains at least this many, and more.  

The adage, “you are what you eat” couldn’t be more true when it comes to the health of your skin.  Remember to feed your body with the best, nutrient rich diet and/or supplements, limit sugar and alcohol, to ensure maintaining the best intestinal health. The pay off will come in a beautiful, healthy, youthful-looking skin that you can be proud of for many years.

Stem Cell Fat Grafting

Stem-cell fat grafts effective for cosmetic surgery
Medical News Today
Interesting news out of Denmark: Researchers at the Copenhagen University Hospital say that an initial round of randomized human trials using stem-cell enriched fat grafts for reconstructive surgery suggests that the procedure is safe and effective. This particular procedure involves harvesting a patient's fat and shifting it to increase the volume of fat in another area of their body.

Traditionally, this procedure has a resorption rate of up to 80 percent — the percentage of the transferred fat that does not survive. However, recent animal studies have demonstrated that fat grafts that have been enriched with culture-expanded adipose (fat)-derived stem cells (ASCs) have been shown to significantly improve graft survival.

"For their study, published in The Lancet, the researchers carried out the stem-cell fat graft procedure and compared this with the standard autologous procedure in 10 healthy volunteers."

Smartlipo Triplex- 3 Wavelenghts are Better than One

Considering Liposuction? Laser Liposuction with the Smartlipo Triplex achieves significantly more tightening than regular tumescent liposuction.

Please view our before and after photographs on Realself.com. We have 26 five star ratings and lots of before and after photographs for you to view.

http://www.realself.com/find/California/Los-Angeles/Dermatologist/A-David-Rahimi

As the industry's leading laser-assisted lipolysis system designed to disrupt fat cells and tighten tissue*, Smartlipo is an ideal adjunct to liposuction for treating localized fat deposits on the face and body. In addition, Smartlipo is a minimally invasive technique that safely coagulates blood vesels resulting in less bleeding and bruising than liposuction alone.

Smartlipo is the #1 requested cosmetic procedure** making Smartlipo the undisputed leader in laser-assisted lipolysis.
