Injectables and Dermal Fillers 

Injectables and dermal fillers are the perfect options for men and women looking to correct wrinkles or folds and restore the contours and smoothness of the face. Roughly one million people annually choose injectables or dermal fillers because of their affordable cost and easy recovery, without extensive surgery.

  • Botox or Dysport (for larger areas) injectables work by relaxing the facial muscles to remove wrinkles on the forehead, around the corners of eyes, or on other areas of the face.
  • Juvederm and Restylane are fillers that provide natural-looking results by smoothing wrinkles and folds, or adding subtle enhancements and smoothing lines.
  • Voluma, Kybella, and Bellafill are used to correct specific areas of the face, including the nose, below the chin, and for the “laugh lines.”

Non-Surgical Facelift 

A non-surgical facelift is an excellent option for patients wanting the benefit of a facelift without any incisions. Most people are familiar with a traditional facelift, which helps to correct facial sagging, reduces wrinkles/fine lines, and provides an improved, more youthful appearance.

A Non-Surgical Facelift is great because it uses the body’s own existing stem cells found in fat tissue to help regenerate tissue. Benefits also include:

  • a more predictable outcome
  • a more cost-effective procedure
  • the avoidance of synthetic fillers
  • filling of furrows and wrinkles 
  • volumetric lifting effect in the face and breasts area
  • lasting correction of atrophic scars

Eye Lid Surgery… An Eye-Opening Experience

You’ve tried all the makeup hacks to make your “hooded eyes” look more prominent, but they don’t seem to work. 

You continuously hear you look tired, and now you’ve also noticed problems with your vision.

It may be time for eyelid surgery to remove excess skin, lift and tighten the remaining skin, and give you a real eye-opening experience. 

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure among Americans. The latest statistics reported in Dermatology Times named eyelid surgery the fourth most popular procedure with 206,000 operations performed in 2018. 

Exposure to the sun and genetic predisposition can contribute to sagging skin around the eyes, and aging and gravity take their toll on the delicate eyelid area, too. It wrinkles and creases, causing deep lines, puffiness, sagging and drooping.

From a cosmetic standpoint, droopy eyelids can cause you to look older and more tired, but many people get eyelid surgery for health and wellness reasons. The excess skin can impair your vision.

What to Expect During Eyelid Surgery

Depending upon the extent of the surgery, the procedure will take approximately one to two hours. It can be done under general anesthesia with the patient asleep, or under local anesthesia in which the area is numb, and the patient remains awake.

The surgeon follows the eyelid’s natural lines and creases, making very fine incisions from the inner to the outer edge of the eyelid. On the upper eyelid, the incision is in the fold of the lid. On the lower eyelid, the incision is made directly below the eyelash or, in selected cases, inside the eyelid.

Excess fat and skin will are removed from the underlying compartments. The amount of fat excised is determined by the degree of protrusion of fat when gentle pressure is applied to the area. Small sutures are used to close the incision, and ointments and dressings may be applied. Since the sutures are in the eyelid’s natural creases, the scars are barely noticeable.  

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

If you don’t like the look of your eyelids or you’re having problems with your vision that may be caused by sagging skin on the eyelids, blepharoplasty may be a great next step. As long as you are in good health, a non-smoker, and do not have any serious eye conditions, you should be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

The best way to find out if eyelid surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our staff. We’ll evaluate your unique situation and help you decide the best course of action for your concerns or goals.

Please call 615-538-0399 or contact us today, and a member of our helpful staff would be happy to assist you in setting up your consultation.

5 Reasons to Consider a Nose Job

Do you struggle with chronic congestion?

Is it hard to breathe easily?

Do you wish that your nose was smaller? Straighter?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty or a “nose job.”

People opt for a nose job for a variety of reasons, some of which are primarily medical and others are primarily cosmetic.

Read on to find out 5 reasons to consider a nose job as you research if rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you.

1.You have a deviated septum.

The septum is a wall of cartilage between the two nostrils and divides the nasal cavity in half. An ideal septum is centered in the nose and creates an even passageway on both the left and right side. A deviated septum, which occurs when the septum shifts away from the midline, can cause cosmetic problems, as well as issues with breathing.

Rhinoplasty can help correct this. You’ll both look better and feel better as correcting a deviated septum will restore visual symmetry and improve breathing.

2.You’ve injured your nose.

Following an accident or trauma that causes facial injury, your nose may not heal properly. The shape may be altered, or you may have trouble breathing.

Rhinoplasty, in this case, may serve two purposes: to return your appearance to your pre-accident look and to restore health.

3. You have a crooked or larger nose, a bump, a hook, or another unwanted characteristic.

Simply put, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, a nose job can help! If you’d like a nose that’s slimmer, smoother, or smaller, then you may be a great candidate for rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty can correct all sorts of cosmetic concerns, such as a bump, a hook, a wide nose, a thick or bulbous tip, nostril size and position, nasal asymmetry, and nose size in relation to face size and shape.

4.You’ve had facial or nasal surgery for an unrelated issue (such as skin cancer removal)

A nose job was never on your radar—until now.

If you’ve had surgery to your face, nose, or upper lip for a different reason (such as skin cancer removal), the appearance and function of your nose could be impacted. Rhinoplasty can be critical in reshaping or reconstructing the nose and restoring both your appearance and health completely following these types of procedures.

5. You’re just not happy with your nose and the way it appears on your face

A primary goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a revised version of a nose that beautifully complements each patient’s unique facial features and beauty. If you’re looking for a natural update that will enhance your overall appearance, a nose job may be the perfect procedure for you.

Schedule a Consultation to Find Out If You are a Candidate for Rhinoplasty

Our board-certified physicians and staff at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery would love to answer all of your questions about rhinoplasty. If any of the reasons listed above describes your situation, rhinoplasty may be the answer.

What is the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss?

You’re likely familiar with the feeling of overeating: your pants are tight, you feel “stuffed,” and the thought of putting one more bite in your mouth is inconceivable.

The Obalon procedure for weight loss works a lot like Thanksgiving dinner or an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet does. The Obalon weight loss system helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less.

Three balloons are placed for a six-month, non-surgical treatment. This is combined with a professionally supervised nutrition and exercise program for optimal weight loss. With balloons taking up space in your stomach, you feel full quicker and eat less.

The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the doctor will inflate the balloon. In the clinical study after placement. Most patients return to normal activities with no downtime.

Benefits of the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss

Among the ever-popular effective, low-risk, and minimally invasive weight loss solutions, Obalon stands out as a proven success. Patients with the Obalon Balloon System and diet and exercise lost approximately twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.

Some other benefits of the Obalon procedure include:

  • The Obalon Balloon System helps jump-start your weight loss journey for long-term results.
  • Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at one year (six months post-removal) when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
  • Less than 1% of adverse events were severe or serious in nature (see safety information).
  • First and only swallowable, lightweight balloon
  • Less expensive than weight loss surgery
  • Each balloon placement takes less than 10 minutes
  • No anesthesia needed for placement
  • Fully reversible

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Tips

BBL-Nashville

As with any surgery, the recovery period for a Brazilian Butt Lift is an important time for your healing to ensure the final results meet your expectations.

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) takes fat from other areas of the body (often the stomach, hips, and thighs) and transfers it to the buttocks. After the surgery, not only will the buttocks area be sore, but the areas from which the fat was taken may also be sore. Typically, the pain will be minimal, will lessen quickly, and will be easily managed with medication.

The more challenging aspect of recovery is the restrictions placed on using the buttocks area. Sitting, sleeping, and walking must all be modified in order to allow the buttocks to heal.

We offer these Brazilian Butt Lift recovery tips to help you better anticipate what you can expect following your cosmetic procedure:

  • Most patients will be up and walking within 1-2 days after the procedure. You may resume light activities within 1 week after surgery.
  • You will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least 8 weeks after surgery. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side.
  • You will be given a compression garment to treat the areas where the liposuction was performed. You will need to wear this garment for at least 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Most patients will be allowed to resume all normal activities 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Even after the first 8 weeks of recovery, patients should still avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time and should use a cushion when sitting.
  • Be patient. After surgery, you’ll see a lot of bruising and swelling. It could take as long as 6 months before your body will reveal the final result. That’s all part of the healing process.

It’s also helpful to keep in mind some important Do’s and Don’ts following your BBL procedure.

Do:

  • Follow your doctor’s instructions faithfully, including obeying restrictions on sitting and lying on your buttocks, and take all prescribed medications.
  • Walk and stretch your legs gently. This will ensure proper circulation and help prevent blood clots following surgery.
  • Wear your compression garment at all times except during showering.

Do Not:

  • Sit or lie on your buttocks up to 8 weeks following surgery (confirm specific requirements with your doctor).
  • Put any stress on the area of the buttocks that received fat transplants; this includes sitting or lying on the area or engaging in any strenuous activity (for up to 8 weeks after surgery, to be confirmed with your doctor).

Schedule Your Consultation for a Brazilian Butt Lift Today        

Whether it’s due to aging, weight loss, heredity, or other reasons, sagging tissue on the buttocks can be a cause of self-consciousness for many women. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great option for many patients who want to improve the appearance of the buttocks without implants.

Patients should also be fully educated on what to expect during the BBL recovery period. Our board certified cosmetic surgeons and the rest of our team can answer any questions you may have about recovering from a BBL and help you achieve the look you want.

Tips for Choosing the Right Size Breast Implants

Once you decide to move forward with breast implant surgery, the next important decision is which size implants you should choose. It’s important that you weigh your options carefully with counsel from your cosmetic surgeon and trusted advisors.

As you think about your options, consider these tips for choosing the right size breast implants.

How to Choose the Right Size Breast Implants

  • Think about your physique. Consider your frame, height, weight, and shoulder and hip width. What size implant will best complement your body? Larger implants may be overwhelming on a thinner, more petite woman, while a taller woman who carries more weight could also accommodate larger breasts.
  • Consider your wardrobe. Want more cleavage for low-cut dresses? Larger implants may be for you. Concerned about maintaining professionalism and not calling too much attention to your new bust size? You may opt for smaller implants.
  • Take them for a test drive. Your cosmetic surgeon should have a way for you to give different implants a trial run. At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we offer silicone breast implant “sizers” that you can try on during your consultation appointment.
  • Bigger is not necessarily better. Don’t get too attached to wanting a certain cup size. You may think that you need a “D” or “DD” cup, but ultimately, you need to make a size decision based upon what’s best for your body, and your goals, regardless of size on the bra band.
  • Listen to others. Your cosmetic surgeon has a great deal of experience with placing the appropriate size implants in their patients. They will help you evaluate all of your options and will consider important aspects, such as the amount and quality of the surrounding breast tissue. Your surgeon’s goal is to provide wise counsel that will result in a natural look that suits your appearance and lifestyle. You may also want to bring a partner or trusted friend to your consultations to help you evaluate implant size.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, our staff is committed to helping each person choose the right size breast implant that best suits the client.

If you’re ready for Breast Augmentation, contact us now to schedule your consultation. Call us today at 615-538-0399, and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions about finding the right size implants for you.

 

Five Most Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men

Even though cosmetic surgery is generally marketed to women, more men today are opting for procedures that will give them a more youthful and powerful appearance.

Cosmetic surgery is no longer just for females, as men underwent more than 85,000 procedures in 2018, according to a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

The ASAPS identified these five most common cosmetic surgery procedures for men last year:

  1. Liposuction
  2. Breast reduction (treatment of gynecomastia)
  3. Eyelid surgery
  4. Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
  5. Tummy Tuck

As men request cosmetic procedures, they are becoming more tailored to address men’s specific concerns. While many of the procedures are similar to those traditionally performed for women, there are subtle but significant surgical variations, which ultimately produce the most appropriate results in cosmetic surgery for a man.

Let’s look more closely at the top five cosmetic surgery procedures for men.  

Liposuction

Liposuction tops the list as the most common cosmetic procedure American men chose in 2018. Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction uses suction to reduce excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle.

Men with love handles or “beer bellies” that won’t disappear, despite spending hours at the gym, find that liposuction can get rid of the stubborn fat, giving them a leaner, trimmer appearance.

Breast Reduction(treatment of gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by enlarged breasts due to an overgrowth of tissue. Male breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces excess glandular tissue and fat to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.

Often called “man boobs,” gynecomastia is estimated to affect between 40 to 60 percent of men. Certain drugs, medical problems, and genetics can contribute to male breast enlargement, but there is no confirmed cause in the majority of cases. 

For some men losing weight can help reduce the appearance of enlarged breasts.  Frequently there is excess glandular tissue as well even for the most slender male patients. 

Male breast reduction surgery is an effective, long lasting treatment that reduces the excess tissue, restoring a more masculine and natural contour to the chest.

Eyelid Surgery

Wrinkles and deep lines, as well as puffiness on the lids, begin to develop with the passage of time. Aged, droopy eyelids can cause men to look old, tired, or angry, produce anxiety, and actually impair vision. Eyelid surgery solves that by removing excess skin and fat on upper and lower eyelids. It is often done in conjunction with other surgical procedures, including a facelift, eyebrow lift, and forehead lift.

Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to improve its size, shape, or function.

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, reduces excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. Men have a smoother and firmer profile after a Tummy Tuck.

Many men also request Facelifts and Neck Lifts in our office, even though they didn’t make the top five list from the ASAPS. Both of these procedures rejuvenate the face, jawline, and neck by restoring sagging skin and other tissues. These help improve signs of aging and result in a younger appearance.

Men: transform your body with a cosmetic procedure

Men, if you’ve been considering a cosmetic procedure, you’re in good company. Don’t think of these surgeries as only for women. Thousands of men just like you are getting liposuction, breast reductions, eyelid and nose surgeries, and Tummy Tucks (and more!) each year.

Don’t wait any longer to make positive changes to your body. You’ll feel more confident and look trimmer and more youthful. Call 615-538-0399 or contact us today to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Even though the work is rewarding and you’d likely do it all over again, pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood take a toll on both mind and body. Getting a Mommy Makeover is an ideal way to do some much-needed self-care, transforming your body back to where it was before kids—or even better!

What exactly is a Mommy Makeover? A Mommy Makeover isn’t just one cookie-cutter procedure that’s prescribed for every mom who walks through our door.

Your Mommy Makeover at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery is fully customized to address your specific concerns after having grown, birthed, and nurtured a new life. A Mommy Makeover can address all signs of pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood that your body may reflect. Whether it’s flat, saggy breasts; excessive jiggling skin that stretched to accommodate a baby (or two!); or fine lines around your eyes and mouth that appear once sleep deprivation sets in, we have options to help.   

How has pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood changed your body? Want to feel like your old self again?

It’s time to get a Mommy Makeover to do just that!

You design your Mommy Makeover

Here at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, one of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons will work with you to tailor your Mommy Makeover to your priorities for your appearance and wellbeing.

You may think of a breast lift or tummy tuck when you think about post-pregnancy and childbirth cosmetic procedures. We go beyond the typical choices to help each woman achieve her specific appearance goals.

That may include vaginal rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, injectables or, a combination of all or some of these.

Still, the most common surgical procedures requested by mothers do involve the breasts and tummy. Here’s some more information about these procedures that will likely be on your Mommy Makeover “to-do” list:

Breast Procedures

A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and reshapes sagging breasts. Dr. Marvel and our team of board-certified surgeons will recommend a specific type of breast lift based on your amount of sagging.

For women with only a small amount of sagging, Dr. Marvel will only make an incision around the areola. Moderate amounts of sagging will require an incision around the areola, as well as down the front of the breast. More severe cases will require an incision around the areola, down the front of the breast and in the breast crease.

You can also add a breast enlargement to your breast lift. In many cases, women who think they need a Breast Lift will only require implants to successfully lift the breasts. During your consultation, our doctors will help determine if a lift is required or if you only need augmentation.

Tummy Tuck

tummy tuck will dramatically improve your stomach’s appearance. Dr. Marvel, Dr. Ingram, or Dr. Morales will make an incision between your navel and pubic hairline and reduce excess fat, skin, and tissue. Weakened abdominal muscles are also repaired during the procedure. The procedure is safe and delivers immediate results.

Liposuction

Liposuction safely reduces stubborn fatty deposits that don’t respond to diet or exercise. During the procedure, a small incision is made in your skin. One of our board- certified surgeons will insert a tube called a cannula into the fatty tissue and use it to loosen the tissue and extract the fat.

Extreme Weight Loss and Sagging Skin – What You Can’t Fix at the Gym!

You’ve worked hard and the scales prove it! The fat is gone, but with your extreme weight loss, you’re unfortunately left with sagging skin. While some areas of skin may tighten on their own during the weight loss and maintenance process, many previously obese individuals find that the excess flab can’t be fixed at the gym.

Cosmetic surgery can help you get rid of sagging skin after extreme weight loss. Marvel Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of solutions that remove extra skin and give you a tighter, leaner body once you’ve reached your ideal weight.

Body Contouring

Body contouring, or a body lift, can give your entire body a new look. When obese individuals lose 100 pounds or more, they will likely have sagging skin in multiple areas of the body. A body lift can remove the excess skin in multiple areas in one procedure. This is an invasive and complex procedure, but it provides beautiful and lasting tightened skin and a trim silhouette for the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, arms, and more.

A body lift may not be necessary for every weight loss situation. If you have isolated areas of flabby skin you’d like to remove or areas you specifically want to lift and tighten, you may choose a singular procedure such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or breast lift.

Tummy Tuck

When diet and exercise shrink your belly—but leave a ring of sagging skin around your midsection where fat used to be—a tummy tuck can help make you slim and trim.

A tummy tuck is also frequently part of an all-over body lift. Here at Marvel, we offer a regular tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, which removes excess fat and skin from the waist. In most cases, it also restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is more smooth and firm.

Patients can also opt for a mini tummy tuck. This procedure will flatten the look of the belly, but with less invasive techniques than a standard tummy tuck. It primarily focuses on excess skin and abdominal wall laxity below the belly button.

Arm Lift

After extreme weight loss, it’s quite common to have sagging skin around the arms. An arm lift will surgically remove that excess skin, giving you tighter and more defined contours.

Breast Lift

Yet another area where extreme weight loss can cause droopy, sagging skin are on the breasts. After an extreme weight loss, breasts may need contouring, tightening, or lifting. A breast lift raises and firms breasts by removing surplus skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the breasts.

Should you get cosmetic surgery to remove sagging skin after extreme weight loss?

Cosmetic surgery procedures are ideal for removing sagging skin after extreme weight loss but the individual must meet a few requirements.

  • You have reached your ideal weight and you’re committed to maintaining it through diet and exercise.
  • You’re in overall good health.
  • You don’t plan to become pregnant or you’ve completed childbearing.

If you’ve lost an extreme amount of weight but are dealing with the after-effects of unwanted sagging, loose, and droopy skin on parts of your body, we have solutions. Marvel Cosmetic Surgery can help complete your transformation so you can show off the beautiful shape and sexy contours you’ve worked so hard to obtain.

How Can I Ditch the Double Chin?

You hope it’s a trick mirror that has you seeing double! Unfortunately, many of us deal with extra fat and skin around the neck, thanks to heredity, gravity, age, and weight loss. Thankfully, you have several options to help you ditch the double chin.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a variety of solutions to help eliminate your double chin. They range from non-surgical and non-invasive to surgical, more complex procedures, designed to address several issues of the face and neck in one surgery.

During your consultation, we will discuss your concerns and goals for your appearance and help you discover the best option to help you ditch your double chin once and for all.

Let’s take a brief look at the procedures that will make your face and neck tight, toned, and beautiful: face lift, neck lift, and liposuction.

Face Lift

If you’d like to address your double chin, along with other issues with sagging skin or excess fat deposits on the face, a face lift may be the best option.

Facelift surgery lifts and tightens the underlying tissues of the face to reduce sagging and excess fat deposits. The procedure involves the tightening of the facial and neck skin, the muscles, and the removal of excess skin. Often, the procedure is done in conjunction with other facial cosmetic surgeries, such as a brow and forehead lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)chin augmentationliposuction, and rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose). Most patients are delighted with their results after a face lift, especially when they are aiming to correct more than one issue on the neck and face.

Neck Lift

A neck lift will restore the contours of the face and neck and will improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin under your jaw line. A neck lift is best for patients who are dealing primarily with unwanted flabby skin under the chin and on the neck, often experienced by people who have experienced an extreme weight loss.

Liposuction

If extra fat, and not excess skin, is causing your double chin, then liposuction may be best for your situation. Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses suction to reduce excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle. This technique works well on stubborn fat deposits despite a strict diet and active physical procedures. Liposuction is a surgical solution but offers minimal downtime and recovery.

It’s Time to Ditch Your Double Chin!

We want you to love your reflection when you look in the mirror. We at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery can offer you the right cosmetic procedure to help you ditch that double chin.
