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.

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.

Everything You Need to Know About Lipo 360

Everything You Need to Know About Lipo 360

Getting the sexy curves and sleek figure you’ve always wanted is now easier than ever before! We are excited to announce that Marvel Cosmetic Surgery now offers Lipo 360, an all-inclusive liposuction procedure to contour and shape the midsection!

Swimsuit season will be here before you know it! Now is the time to find out how we can help you transform your body and create a dynamic yet natural looking result. Read on to discover everything you need to know about Lipo 360.

What is Lipo 360?

Lipo 360 is an all-inclusive liposuction procedure that is used to contour and shape the midsection, 360 degrees around. The possible areas for treatment are the upper and lower abdominals, the flanks on both sides, and the lower and mid-back.

We utilized the best cosmetic surgery practices to develop a comprehensive range of liposuction procedures designed to lift, tone, and contour your body. What makes this procedure truly unique is the ability to give you the custom results that you want.

How Lipo 360 Works

First, you’ll meet with a patient care coordinator and one of our surgeons. They will listen to your needs and make recommendations based on how you’d like to shape and define your body.

Lipo 360 uses a vacuum to target and suction fat from specific areas in the midsection. Our surgeons use special techniques to accentuate your natural curves and create a dramatic yet natural-looking result. In some cases, the surgeon may also use a laser in addition to traditional liposuction to help melt fat and tighten the skin.

Another added benefit of Lipo 360 is that it does not require general anesthesia. Most patients require only IV sedation for this procedure.

The Recovery

Downtime for Lipo 360 is minimal and most patients can return to normal activities within just a few days. But with any surgical procedure, downtime can vary, and following post-op instructions is a must. Your doctor will provide you with specific guidelines to follow to ensure you get the best results and heal quickly. Be prepared to avoid strenuous activities and exercise following your procedure as your body will need time to heal.

The Right Candidate for Lipo 360

The ideal candidate for Lipo 360 will be within their ideal body weight and someone looking to remove fat from trouble areas that are not easily fixed by exercise alone. Lipo 360 works wonders because it targets both small and large areas of the body to contour and shape.

Getting the curves you’ve always wanted is possible with Lipo 360 and starts with a FREE consultation to meet with one of our doctors. At your consultation you will discuss the results you desire and have the opportunity to ask any questions.

Go Brazilian and Get the Butt You’ve Always Wanted (Or Used to Have!)

A shapely backside is celebrated in all cultures, and one way to achieve this highly desirable look is with a Brazilian Butt Lift. If you have flat or saggy buttocks, your bottom has changed shape over time, or you just want more fullness, you’re a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift.

The procedure uses your own fat to create a more natural look. Liposuction is first performed on specific areas of the body, such as the lower back, stomach, and thighs. The fat is purified and then injected into various spots in the buttocks for a pleasing shape and feel. The procedure requires about three weeks of recovery but produces long-lasting results.

With the Brazilian Butt Lift, the risk of infection is low since we’re using your own fat. And because the procedure uses liposuction, it creates a more uniform, shapely and natural enhancement. Give us a call 615-329-3900 or contact us today so you’ll be ready for summer!

For the Most Natural Breast Implants, Try “Gummy Bears”

gummy bear implants

New strides in breast implant technology have led to the development of form-stable implants, which have widely expanded the options for breast enhancement. The silicone gel in the implant is thicker, so it maintains its shape and causes less wrinkling. Even if you were to cut a form-stable implant in half, it would keep its shape—earning it the nickname “gummy bear” implant.

Though the implants are strong and have a less than 2% rupture rate, they are remarkably soft, making “gummy bear implants” an option for patients who have always desired breast enhancement but wanted a more natural look and feel. The teardrop shape mimics the natural shape of the breast, and they come in a variety of projections and heights depending on the shape of a woman’s torso and existing breasts.

Dr. Jeffrey Marvel:  “One of the greatest advantages I have found is the increase in the degree of lift possible with these implants. We are now able to place implants and avoid the additional scars of performing breast lifts in a large percentage of cases.  There is also a lot of increased fullness in the upper portion of the breast.”

A consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Marvel can help you decide the size and shape of gummy bear implant that’s right for you.
