Preparing for Your Face Lift

Tue, 03/18/2014

Once you have decided to move forward with a face lift in our New York City office, we will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions that explain how to best prepare for your procedure.

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Tue, 03/18/2014

In the past, breast implant manufacturers and plastic surgeons used to suggest that patients consider replacing their silicone breast implants after 10 years. However, today's highly cohesive gel implants (also called form-stable or "gummy bear" implants) are so durable that manufacturers and surgeons alike have stopped recommending elective replacement every decade. If the shell ruptures, the gel is designed to retain its shape, preventing a leak.

What to Expect from Rhinoplasty Recovery

Since every rhinoplasty is unique, the recovery process will be different for each patient. After carefully examining your nose structure and discussing your cosmetic goals, our experienced New York City rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. David Cangello will explain what you can expect from rhinoplasty in more detail, and how long recovery might take based on the extent of your procedure.

Understanding Facial Aging

Tue, 03/18/2014

The effects of age on your face are unavoidable. As you get older, your skin will start to lose its elasticity (flexibility), becoming dryer and thinner, and causing cosmetic issues like wrinkles and facial folds to appear. Some of these changes are prompted by environmental factors, such as sun damage, but others occur naturally over time due to slower collagen production in your skin, and a lower supply of nutrition to the face.

Other factors involved in facial aging include:

If you have recently been pregnant or lost a significant amount of weight, you may have loose, sagging skin in the abdominal area that is compromising your overall figure.

Breast Augmentation for Tubular Breasts

Fri, 02/21/2014

Tubular (or “tuberous”) breasts have an unusually narrow base, which constricts the growth of breast tissue while it is developing, resulting in breasts with a more elongated and tubular shape. Women with tubular breasts also often have enlarged areola and/or “puffy” nipples. The small size of tubular breasts, together with their unusual shape, can  make a woman feel self-conscious about her appearance.

Breast Augmentation in Older Women

Thu, 02/20/2014

In recent years, an increasing amount of older women in their 50s and beyond have been seeking out breast augmentation in New York City. Part of the reason for this is that more women have been staying fit and healthy later in life. After bearing and raising children for many years, women want to feel confident in their appearance again. If you’ve noticed that your breasts have begun to sag and lose volume, we can help you recapture a more youthful and proportionate figure.  

What to Expect From a Facelift

Wed, 02/19/2014

Getting a facelift can seem like an intimidating process, but it doesn’t have to be. During your consultation, Dr. Cangello will examine your skin quality and texture, and discuss your cosmetic goals to help you decide on the best approach to treatment. Depending on the extent of your facelift – and whether or not it is combined with other procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery – what you can expect from the process will differ.
