When Should I Get a Face Lift?

Many of our patients ask us what the ideal age is for a face lift. If you have noticed wrinkles, facial folds, and other skin changes in recent years, you may be wondering whether now is the right time to undergo a face lift. The right timing for a face lift procedure will depend on a wide range of factors. During a personal consultation, Dr. Lefkovits will examine your facial skin, review your medical history, and determine whether or not face lift surgery is right for you at this stage in your life.

Combining Chin Implants With Your Rhinoplasty

Most people undergo rhinoplasty (nose surgery) because they are frustrated with the way their nose protrudes from their face, throwing off the balance of their entire facial profile. While the nose is definitely the main problem in most cases, you may not realize just how much the position of your chin can affect the appearance of your nose and the rest of your face.

Plastic Surgery a Great Way to Spend Tax Refund

Did you get a sizeable tax refund and are considering how you want to spend the money? If you want to spend the money to make a lasting impact on your quality of life, you should consider plastic surgery.

And the long-lasting results from many procedures mean that you can get years of positive impact from your investment.

Plastic surgery can achieve unparalleled rejuvenation, but it also comes with tradeoffs, so before deciding on plastic surgery, it is often better to try a few other things first.  Some things to try before plastic surgery, include:

How can you not worry about the child who will no longer be sleeping at home and cannot ask you for help when he or she needs it? But saying goodbye to a child or children also represents a new beginning for many parents. This is your opportunity to start the third phase of your life, when you and your partner can enjoy the freedom that comes from having no children.

Controversy Surrounding the "Beauty Premium"

In mid-July Newsweek columnist Jessica Bennett re-ignited a long-simmering controversy about the impact of appearance on jobs, careers, and income. In combination with the column, the magazine published the results of its own survey of corporate hiring managers and members of the general public about the issue. The survey showed that fifty-seven percent of hiring managers believed qualified but unattractive candidates were likely to have a harder time getting a job.

Body Image Problems and Men: Objectification of a Different Color

Much of the discussion about body image problems has been associated with women. Women, we are told, see images of models and actresses on billboards, magazines, and television, and often feel self-conscious by comparison. Women internalize media ideals of beauty, which leads to self-objectification (imagining themselves as a collection of body parts that are sexual objects, rather than as a human being), then to body surveillance (closer attention to their appearance) and body shame, which then drives them to seek to pursue the media-imposed ideal.
