Cosmetic Surgery- Will You Be Perceived As Likable?

No Comments

smiling older womanCosmetic surgery is primarily an option chosen to improve a persons appearance. According to a recent online article , research suggest that cosmetic surgery any also change the way other people think of you and and how they approach you. Surprisingly research shows that while a bit of stigma remains, the approach by others to women who have had plastic surgery was overwhelmingly positive. The article suggest that when women have the “right” procedures they appear more feminine, friendly and for the most part more likable. There are numerous studies that refer to the psychological effects for the plastic surgery patient. This study is believed to be the first that looks at how others perceive patients who have had cosmetic surgery procedure. The cosmetic surgery study suggest a direct link between specific cosmetic procedures and the way a woman is perceived with respect to her social skill, perceived trustworthiness and friendliness.

Plastic Surgery Facial Procedures Have the Most Impact

Plastic surgery facial procedures seem to cause the most definitive positive reaction. Specifically, the facial plastic surgery procedures that had the most significant effects on the perceptions of other people were face lifts, upper and lower eye lifts, brow lifts, neck lifts and chin implants. Following any of these facial plastic surgery procedures or any combination of two more, social perceptions were found to be altered among the individuals the women encountered. According to the research team behind the study, the interesting finding is based in human evolutionary instinct with our subconscious minds causing us to move closer  toward those who appear to us as friendlier and less threatening – facial appearance and our interpretation of it being a key determining factor.

“Our animal instinct tells us to avoid those who are ill-willed and we know from previous research that personality traits are drawn from an individual’s neutral expressions,” said Professor Michael Reilly, of Georgetown University School of Medicine.

When determining why facial plastic surgery procedures affect perceptions in such a way, the team hypothesized that it could be as simple as having sagging, down-turned facial features lifted produces a  look that is believed to be  happier and more upbeat.

“This may explain why the patients who had a lower eyelift were found to be significantly more attractive and feminine, and experienced improved trustworthiness scores,” wrote Professor Reilly. The study authors noted that some patients were perceived as prone to risky behavior and aggressive after surgery.

“Some might say that is negative, but others may want that look,” added the Professor.

Patient Consultation Is the Key to Understanding Procedures

Patient consultation is the first step to having plastic surgery. Dr Angelchik treats the patient consultation as the important medical office visit that it is. The patient consultation is the opportunity for the plastic surgeon  to review important medical information concerning the patient, gather both facts and expected outcomes from the patient, and make a recommendation.  Dr Angelchik sees his patients at both the the initial visit as well as the pre-operative visit. Both patient consultations are critical to patient satisfaction and positive outcomes. Recently Dr Angelchik added an additional benefit for his patients. As a practice dedicated to total wellness, Dr Anglchik provides every patient with nutritional products for use prior to surgery and immediately after surgery to improve patient healing and general well being. This is part of the Healthy Beautiful Me program.

Breast Implants Could Become Safer

No Comments

breast implantsBreast implants are a safe option for women considering breast augmentation.  According to a recent online article scientists at The University of Manchester have created an augmented cover for silicone breast implants which could lessen complications and make them less prone to be rejected by the body.  In the US alone approximately 400,000 cosmetic breast augmentations and reconstructions are carried out per year and the number is increasing.  Some of these cases are for reconstruction breast surgery. This would happen following  breast surgery for breast cancer and can have significant psychological benefits.  However, approximately one in five women who has breast implants  suffers from capsular contracture where scar tissue forms and can shrink after the surgery causing pain deformity and the need for further surgery . Fluid from the body can also build up known as a seroma and the scar tissue can also cause leaks in the  breast implants. Capsular contracture is caused by the body resisting the implantation of a foreign object. It has previously been shown that rougher surfaces also known as textured surfaces reduce the amount of scar tissue formed around breast implants; but the Manchester scientists felt that they could improve this by creating a pattern which mimicked the body’s own surface such as the basal layer of the skin providing a better environment for the cells to grow on.

Breast Augmentation and Improving Breast Implants

Breast augmentation procedures continue to become more popular as breast implants continue to evolve. The surfaces of breast implants in use today have relatively large features on their surface which have no discernible correlation with biological features required for cells to interact with.  “Specifically the micro environment created by the features of a breast implant is critical for breast tissue cells to adhere to that surface and grow on” said Dr Ardeshir Bayat from the University’ s Institute of Inflammation and Repair who led the study. Compared to the size of the cells these bumps on existing implants are so large that they’re effectively a smooth surface when compared to the dimensions required for the cell to interact with. Our approach was to create a novel surface which mimics the basal layer of the skin which the body’s cells are more likely to recognize and interact with favorably. The tests were carried out in the lab over a period of one week a critical early period after  breast surgery and while the researchers acknowledge that much more work is yet to be done, the new surface reduced the foreign body reaction of the cells when compared to the smooth and larger textured surfaces currently available on the market. “These findings suggest that this unique surface may help to reduce the likelihood of adverse inflammation and subsequent scarring in the form of breast capsular fibrosis “Dr Bayat added. Some of the surfaces seen on implants today were designed originally in  the’60’s and  70’s and therefore there is an unmet need for delivering the next generation of biometric breast implant surfaces.

Breast Augmentation in Every Practice is Different

Breast augmentation in Dr Angelchik’s Phoenix  area Glendale practice is the number one procedure requested by new patients.  Dr Angelchik explains to his patients that each surgeon is different and each uses the products that they are most comfortable with in their own hands. Dr Angelchik typically does not use textured implants because studies have shown an increase in leakage when compared to smooth surfaced implants.  The incidence of capsular contrature after breast augmentation in his practice is well below the national average so the likelihood of leaking implants presents more risks associated with capsular contracture.  Patients are fully informed concerning both types of implants during their breast surgery consultation prior to surgery.

Oxygen Facial a Breath of Fresh Air

No Comments

hand liftOxygen facial is a much anticipated addition to Dr Angelchik’s practice. While the treatment has been around for over a decade, Jana Dreebin, Dr Angelchik’s licensed medical aesthetician , has waited until now to offer the treatment to her  medical skin care patients. While the basic function has remained the same—a pressurized stream of oxygen that infuses active ingredients to the skin—the quality of these active ingredients has recently been improved from basic thick moisturizers to more of what a medical skin care practice would offer  including  hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides.  So now it is the perfect time to add the oxygen facial.

Medical Skin Care For Healthy Skin

Medical skin care treatments are designed to keep the skin healthy. It is not a spa treatment. The ingredients that Jana is permitted to use are for professional use only and this is why they are only sold under a physicians license. Jana takes great pride in the value of medical skin care and medical skin care products. Patients routinely see dramatic improvement in the appearance and texture of their skin under Jana’s care. Jana recommends that all patients utilize at home medical skin care products to complete their medical skin care program.

Oxygen Facial -What to Expect

Oxygen facial is a comfortable experience. It is not a peel so there is no redness or pain during or after treatment. The main ingredient is the hyaluronic acid, a molecule that is found naturally in our skin (and is also the “secret sauce” in most injectable fillers); it attracts and binds moisture, therefore helping skin appear firmer and more hydrated. First, Jana will spray the serum on the face. Then, the instrument Jana uses  looks very similar to a makeup artist airbrush gun and  infuses a continual flow of 90 to 95 percent pure oxygen under hyperbaric pressure ( 18 to 21 percent is naturally in our environment). The theory is that this will increase the absorption of the serums so you should get more benefit from the ingredients. Oxygen is also naturally antibacterial and has a cooling, calming effect. This makes the treatment a favorite for Dr Angelchik’s patients following a facelift (once Dr Angelchik has given the ok) The whole process will take about 30-60 minutes. Jana will recommend  at home medical skin care products to maintain healthy skin.  The oygen facial is a wonderful addition to the practice. The new Healthy Beautiful Me program which combines nutrition, exercise, skin care, and plastic surgery embraces the oxygen facial as yet another way to keep a complete and healthy lifestyle for patients.  Schedule your appointment with Jana today. 1-602-375-8888

Gynecomastia Surgery and Body Builders

No Comments

Man in fitted jeansGynecomastia is not uncommon among body builders. With close attention to some unique patient characteristics, breast reduction surgery achieves great aesthetic outcomes in bodybuilders with gynecomastia enlargement of the male breast according to a analysis in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). ASPS Member Surgeon Mordcai Blau MD a plastic surgeon in private practice in White Plains N Y reviews his comprehensive exposure with gynecomastia surgery in bodybuilders. He highlights central patient characteristics and technical issues consisting of the causal role of anabolic steroids and hormone supplements. Dr Blau s coauthor was Ron Hazani MD a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Calif. “Focus on Gynecomastia Surgery in Bodybuilders” An expert in male breast reduction, Dr Blau has performed gynecomastia surgery in mostly bodybuilders and other patients with good physique. The new report focuses on such patients followed up for one to five years after surgery. The men ranged in age from 18 to 51 years 15 percent were competitive bodybuilders. All were free of hormonal or other diseases that can cause gynecomastia.  In some cases gynecomastia developing in adolescence usually a temporary condition became permanent after the patient started using steroids or hormone containing supplements. For several reasons gynecomastia surgery in bodybuilders calls for a different approach Dr Blau believes. In contrast to other groups of gynecomastia patients who tend to be overweight or obese, bodybuilders usually don’t need removal of excess fat or skin. However, they do need special attention to prevent bleeding and scarring. Bleeding risk is higher because of increased blood flow in the highly developed chest muscles. Steroids and unregulated supplements, including protein shakes. vitamins. and fish oils may also increase bleeding risk. Emphasis should be on complete removal of breast gland tissue. Bodybuilders are perfectionists with regard to their physique and chest aesthetics, hence their level of expectations is higher, Dr Blau writes. He performs the procedure through a one inch incision made on the underside of the areola surrounding the nipple .In outlining his surgical technique Dr Blau highlights the need for complete removal of all breast gland tissue. After surgery pathology reports usually show excessive development hypertrophy of the gland tissue although a few patients had precancerous cells. Most patients are extremely satisfied with their surgical results, Dr Blau reports. He also notes that the vast majority of patients continued to use anabolic steroids Because the gland was completely removed there were no problems with recurrent gynecomastia Complications were uncommon and generally minor There was a six percent rate of hematomas blood collections causing pain swelling and bruising. Dr Blau notes this problem became less common after he began providing stricter instructions regarding preoperative and postoperative care stopping all use of steroids and supplements before surgery and resuming exercise gradually after surgery. Plastic surgeons may see increased interest in gynecomastia surgery among bodybuilders and other men with good physique.

Dr Angelchik treats men for gynecomastia regularly. Nutrition and fitness are a core part of his practice and body builders feel especially comfortable with his knowledge and expertise. Patients are encouraged to make a consultation if they are considering  gynecomastia surgery.

Facelift After Bariatric Surgery

No Comments

Overweight PatientFacelift after plastic surgery is a common practice. Bariatic surgical procedures help treat patients who are experiencing  uncontrolled obesity. According to  many  American and European studies, obesity is one of the preventable death-causing conditions worldwide. Due to the increase of obesity cases, especially in children, the WHO developed and implemented Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health Program that are aimed at lessening the rate of obesity especially during childhood.

Obesity Affects Health and Body Image

Obesity is a world wide issue. Different diseases are directly connected  with obesity. Cardiovascular problems are the most evident causing an increase in mortality and morbidity cases worldwide. Because of this alarming situation, bariatric surgery was developed to address obesity issues for patients considered morbidly obese. Also known as weight loss surgery, Bariatric Surgery aims to reduce excess fats and weight by reducing the size of the stomach through sleeve gastrectomy or Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch or gastric bypass surgery. These procedures can cause an extreme decrease in the weight and size of the client causing the skin to sag. Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, facelift, and other skin tightening procedures are options for correcting the sagging of the skin. With the help of Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, it creates a smoother and firmer abdominal skin by removing excess fats and skin of the patient while body contouring is for the removal of excessive skin folds in the upper and lower body.

Facelift can help

Facelift can make a  huge difference for patients after bariatric surgery. Dr. Angelchik explains  that massive weight loss surgery patients, in general, have a large amount of redundant skin and soft tissue.  It  this makes the procedure a challenging one, especially on the facial part because excess skin is the root of cosmetic problems like “droopy” face and “turkey” neck. According to some researchers most patients are particularly displeased with their post Bariatric face and neck because they can’t camouflage the area with clothing. After a Bariatric surgery or extreme weight loss, most of the patient lose the volume of the midface and around the mouth, and excess skin in the cheeks and neck are visible.

Patients with massive weight loss need a larger volume of fat augmentation and increased tightening of the cheek and neck skin and a deeper and extensive evaluation of the muscle and other facial tissues. In most cases, eyelid surgery, forehead lift, and facial resurfacing are being performed at the same time. A full service of facial plastic surgery procedures by Dr. Angelchik offer multiple options for the  beauty goals patients have. A combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures for obtaining the results you desire are available. Your initial consultation with him will give you several of options and together you can create a customized treatment plan that will address your needs.

Plastic Surgery -Stem Cell Therapy Claims May Be Misleading

No Comments

doctor photoPlastic surgery evolves as medicine evolves. According to an  online article  advertising claims for cosmetic procedures using stem cells are running by far ahead of the scientific data for assurance and proper use according to an abstract in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).  Stem cells impart epic possibility for plastic surgery, however; the marketplace is saturated with unsubstantiated and sometimes fraudulent claims that could place patients at risk writes Dr Michael T Longaker of Stanford University Medical Center and colleagues. A massive influx of advertisements for cosmetic surgery stem cell procedures, Dr Longaker and coauthors write bring  concerns around the unregulated application of stem cells for unproven indications including cosmetic surgery procedures.

Cosmetic Surgery Procedures  Bear Stem Cell Advertising Promises

Cosmetic surgery is among the first types of procedures offering stem cell options for patients. Although stem cell therapy remains in its infancy, they write that there are an ever increasing amount of cosmetic surgery practitioners that are advertising minimally invasive stem cell based rejuvenation procedures. The article was prompted by exaggerated advertisements claiming benefits of stem cell procedures for facelifts breast augmentation even stem cell vaginal rejuvenation and other cosmetic surgery procedures. These ads affirm benefits from  cosmetic surgery procedures that have not undergone rigorous scientific judgment including conceivably possible risks related to stem cell and tissue processing and the effects of aging on stem cells. To attain insight into these claims Dr Longaker and coauthors performed a Google search for cosmetic stem cell treatments the most familiar of which was stem cell facelifts. Most  plastic surgery procedures applied stem cells isolated from fat: however ,the websites furnished inadequate data on the characteristics of the stem cells used. Without advanced cell sorting procedures, these products applied in these procedures in all likelihood contain many other types of cells along with fat derived stem cells. Many plastic surgery clinics also offered plasma rich platelet protein treatments which they inaccurately marketed as stem cell therapy. Despite revelation that is nominal at best, advertisers are additionally claiming that their stem cell treatments have anti aging effects. The authors note that procedures marketed as stem cell facelifts are commonly only lipofilling procedures, an established fat injection technique with by no means extended anti aging effects. The responsibility for considering plastic surgery to advance in evaluating cosmetic uses of stem cells lies with board certified plastic surgeons.  To date just one stem cell procedure for cosmetic intention has acclaimed FDA approval after comprehensive evaluation. The procedure devised to treat fine facial wrinkles is undergoing continuing comprehensive post approval studies. Of many clinical trials being performed to evaluate fat derived stem cells only a handful are focusing on cosmetic treatments. Stem cells absolutely have a function to play in regenerative medicine and cosmetic surgery. The authors note that the ASPS and other specialty groups have formed task forces to intensify position statements based on the best available information for plastic surgery  procedures using fat derived stem cells. With plastic surgeons at the forefront of stem cell based regenerative medicine it is critically significant that we provide a demonstration of a rigorous methodology to research data collection and advertising of stem cell therapies. Dr Longaker and coauthors conclude stem cells offer amazing potential for cosmetic surgery applications but we must be vigilant to abstain from unscientific claims which may threaten this nascent field.

Facelift Choices For Patients

Facelift choices are likely to include the latest and greatest new  techniques. Dr Angelchik consults with plastic surgery  patients considering elective  plastic surgery and explains both surgical and non surgical options. Facelift plastic surgery patients are cautioned like all cosmetic surgery  patients to do their research and to be cautious of procedures that are not supported by reliable scientific data. Patients considering facelift and other cosmetic procedures are encouraged to contact Dr Angelchik for a consultation.

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair through Plastic Surgery

No Comments

newborn baby girlCleft lip (cheiloschisis) and cleft palate (palatoschisis) is a rare craniofacial deformity that occurs during the early development stage of an unborn child. Failure of the palate and lips to fuse during the 11th and 16th week of gestation causes this medical condition. This may also be caused by teratogens and low nutrient intake of the mother or genetic factors during the development process. Cleft lip and palate is very treatable, but needs an immediate attention because it can cause serious problems if not immediately attended to. Within 2-3 months post-delivery of the child, undergoing Cheiloplasty and Palatoplasty are highly recommended.

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair

Cleft lip or cleft palate repair will definitely make an immense difference in the patient’s quality of life, including the ability to breathe, speak and eat without worrying for risk of aspiration. However, follow-up procedures may be needed for functional purposes or to fix the appearance.

Choosing to have a surgery is a big leap for parents and a big decision to make. After the pediatric surgeon diagnosed and oriented the parents for the surgery and signing of consent, the operation will be set. The plastic surgeon will then instruct the parents regarding the specific laboratory examinations and diagnostic tests that will be performed to ensure that the patient is in good condition for the surgery.

Finding a Trusted Plastic Surgeon

Finding a trusted Plastic Surgeon is vital. This is actually one of the first steps when you need a reconstructive surgery done. In choosing the right plastic surgeon, consult someone who is a member of American Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The ASPS requires a qualifying standard for plastic surgeons to become a member. They have should have finished their medical education in an accredited school and passed his surgical training for 6 years, including 3 years of plastic surgery residency training. Dr. Paul Angelchik has been a Rotaplast volunteer surgeon since 1999. He helped in the development of nations by treating congenital birth defects for medically indigent children and adults. Many of the surgical techniques used today in facial cosmetic plastic surgery originated with techniques developed to treat facial deformities.

Plastic Surgery: It’s More than Appearance.

No Comments

Plasticdoctor photo Surgery, two words that have different faces, for some it is a science that helps in enhancing the hidden beauty of an individual, but for others it is an invasive procedure that alters the appearance given to you by the Creator. Everyone has a point, opinions vary, but everyone will agree that beauty and health are both powerful weapons. Because of the influence of media and advertising, imperfections in appearance have no longer space, making some people obsessed with plastic surgery. But what role does plastic surgery really play?

History. As early as 800 BC, reconstructive plastic surgery has already been a practice in India. At 1827, this procedure has reached United State and the first American plastic surgeon was John Peter Mettauer who performed Palatoplasty using his designed surgical instruments. Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach wrote a comprehensive text about Rhinoplasty in 1845 then he introduced operation of the reconstructed nose to improve the cosmetic appearance. Development of the modern plastic surgery started during the World War I where injured soldiers were the patients for reconstructive surgery. Sir Harold Gillies, known as the father of modern plastic surgery, developed modern facial surgery while attending to WWI soldiers suffering from facial injuries.

Deeper Reasons for Plastic Surgery

In our current generation, Plastic surgery becomes a procedure that is highly in demand not just for aesthetic purposes, but mainly to correct and reconstruct body parts that need to be modified for a more effective body function. Cleft lip, cleft palate, small ears, and obesity are some of the reasons to undergo different corrective and reconstructive procedures to improve the patient’s way of living. For cleft cases, difficulty of breathing, speaking and taking of food are some signs and symptoms that need immediate attention because failure to cure will result into more damaging, worst scenario like death. Palatoplasty and Cheiloplasty are the surgical procedures performed to correct these kinds of craniofacial deformities.

There are  some deeper reasons for patients who have undergone cosmetic surgery. For patients who are fighting for their life, beauty is a second priority after cure of the disease.
