Fall is Here

Posted on September 14, 2015 by

Fall in Dallas is the best time of year. The Cowboys are back, Big Tex is calling us to the State Fair, homecoming floats are being built and it’s time to get the skinny jeans back on.

Wait, what, skinny jeans!

After a summer of vacations, drinks by the pool and cook outs your skinny jeans might be a bit too “skinny”. So get back on your low-carb diet and shed those extra pounds. But if that “muffin top” won’t budge it might be time to consider liposuction.

Liposuction is the best way to get the bulges off the areas that are resistant to dieting. Typically these areas are your thighs, belly and hips. You know, the areas we hide from husbands and mirrors.

Dr. Toledo can get you back in skinny jean shape after liposuction at Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center. Recovery in fall is faster and you will be ready for every event from Halloween to Christmas.

Call us for your consultation. Can’t wait to see you. Esther

Microdermabrasion VS Chemical Peels

Posted on July 30, 2015 by

Many patients are confused on which treatment is right for them.  There are so many options and so much advertising on the newest “skin miracle” but which one is right for you? Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels are two of the most common treatments and are really your best options.

Microdermabrasion can remove dead and flaking skin cells to create an immediate improvement in your skin’s appearance. This unique approach stimulates the production of fresh young skin cells . It is the ultimate advancement in non-surgical, non-invasive skin conditioning. This treatment is usually performed on younger patients who just need to “freshen” up their skin.  Patients in their 20’s love microdermabrasion.  There is no down time after treatment.

Chemical Peels improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers, which exposes the younger, fresher skin that lies beneath.  Chemical Peels are a deeper treatment that actually allow the skin cells to be strengthened.  There is usually visible sloughing of dead skin a few days after the treatment is performed. Patients with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation are good candidates for this treatment.

So which one is the right treatment for you?

Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction

Posted on July 1, 2015 by

Tummy Tuck or Liposuction?

Do I need a tummy tuck or liposuction? The question is, do you have excess loose skin or excess fat on your abdomen?

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) involves removing excess skin and tightening the muscles. Pregnancy and weight loss are the most common reasons for a tummy tuck. On the other hand liposuction removes only excess fat bulges. Liposuction is a good choice for someone with tight skin and muscles, with only extra fat in the abdomen. Other areas of the body commonly done at the same time are the thighs, knees and hips.

So do you need a tummy tuck or liposuction?

Do I need a lift with my breast augmentation?

Posted on June 8, 2015 by

Do I need a lift with my breast augmentation?

This common question is asked by patients when discussing breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) with Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. George Toledo. As a top board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Toledo is able to perform breast enlargement and breast lifts at the same time. This saves patients recovery time, money and they are able to love their new look right away. Here is some helpful information about having a breast lift (mastopexy) when enlarging or augmenting the breasts with silicone or saline implants.

First we need to understand exactly what a breast augmentation can do. It increases the fullness and size of the breasts. It also helps keep the body in proportion. Breast augmentation with silicone or saline implants often helps women fell better about the appearance and increases confidence.

Ideally patient’s nipples should be centered and pointing straight ahead. Drooping is when the nipples or breast tissue has fallen and can be caused by aging, pregnancy, breast-feeding and weight gain or loss. The degree of the drooping determines which breast lift is necessary. With all the variations of lifting the underlying tissue is lifted and the nipples repositioned.

Sometimes if there is only a small amount of droopiness, a breast augmentation alone will give you enough of a lift.

A small amount of drooping in the nipple or areola can be lift with an internal lift. Dr. Toledo raises the tissue using sutures in the breast tissue. This does not require any additional scars and can be done with the breast augmentation.

A nipple or areola lift is used when then the nipples are slightly droopy or lower than one another. There are usually only scars around the areolas. These scars look like a half moon and fade away with time.

Finally, a full breast lift or mastopexy is done when the nipples point down and the breast seems to be lying on the chest. To repair extreme droopiness Dr. Toledo makes incisions around the nipples and down the center of the breast to the fold.

Some degree of breast lift is regularly performed at the same time as a breast augmentation and does not add to the recovery time. You can expect your breast to look fuller, uplifted and firm with a breast augmentation and breast lift.

shutterstock_78474148Dr. George Toledo has been performing more and more labiaplasty surgeries most recently. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2014 Report, labiaplasty surgeries have increased 48% in 2014. There may be several reasons for the increase of this type of procedure. Very often this type of technique is sought out to alleviate pain or tenderness during urination, discomfort during intercourse, or for cosmetic purposes including tightening and reshaping often desired after child birth and/or aging.

Dr. Toledo is a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Dallas who has performed countless labiaplasty consultations and surgeries.

Why Are More Patients Choosing to Have Labiaplasty Surgery?

More and more women today are more comfortable with their female body and its parts, and society has empowered women to seek out this surgery to improve both medical conditions as well as vaginal cosmetic concerns. There is more of an acceptance today for this type of surgery that was not there that long ago nor would it have even be spoken of or referred to. In some regards, the social stigma has been lifted.

In addition, techniques have become gentler, risks have decreased, and recovery time is very minimal. There is also more information readily available to prospective candidates on the options, costs, and potential side effects if any. The results are symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing labia minora.

Dr. Toledo pays a great deal of attention to postoperative care which includes rest and activity modification during the first few days following labiaplasty surgery. This coupled with the attentiveness of his staff lends to exceptional results as well as a tranquil and swift recovery.

What Changes Do You Expect in the Field of Labiaplasty?

Dr. Toledo anticipates that more plastic surgeons will enter this field as the costs and risks continue to go down. But, he stresses the importance of candidates doing their due diligence in terms of research. He stresses the importance of finding a board certified plastic surgeon as well as the right fit.
