Your family, friends, and coworkers have been asking you if you are getting enough sleep because you’ve been looking tired. Others may have asked you why you are angry when you’re not. But, the real question is, why are you being asked these questions? 

Have you taken a good look at yourself lately? It may be your eyes. Your eyelids have started to droop down making your brow look heavy and your eyes look like they aren’t open. No matter how much money you have spent on creams and serums to brighten your dark circles or to brighten your eyes nothing seems to help.

How do you know that you may need eyelid surgery? You may be experiencing some of the following symptoms:

If you have any of these symptoms Dr. Scot Glasberg can discuss the benefits of blepharoplasty with you. 

What happens during a blepharoplasty?

During an upper blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eyelid surgery, Dr. Glasberg will remove the excess skin from your upper eyelids and hide the incision in the natural folds of your eyelid. He will tighten your eyelid’s muscles and tissues and reduce the drooping and sagging of your eyelids. When the excess fat and skin from your eyelid has been removed your peripheral vision will be improved. While a blepharoplasty typically focuses on the upper eyelid, it can also be performed to correct the bags you may have under your eyes. This procedure is known as a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. During this procedure, Dr. Glasberg will make an incision on the inside of your lower eyelid, so you will not have any visible scars, and remove the fat giving you a more refreshed look. 

Is there a specific age when you should consider having a blepharoplasty?

You may wonder if there is a specific age when you should have a blepharoplasty. In some cases, it may depend on your genetics. If you look around at your family members you may notice that they have the same sagging or puffy eyelids as you do. On the other hand, if improving your vision is the main reason for your blepharoplasty, age should not be a consideration. You may begin to see the changes in your eyes as early as your 30s while others may see the changes beginning in their 40s, 50s, or 60s. Sometimes you can see the changes in the photos that have been taken of you or even if you are applying makeup. 

A blepharoplasty procedure can be performed at any time in your life but patients who have undergone a blepharoplasty typically have age-related concerns which include drooping eyelids or bags under their eyes. If you have naturally heavy eyelids or excess eyelid skin, a blepharoplasty may be successfully performed regardless of age. 

Are you a good candidate for a blepharoplasty?

For you to be an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty you should be:

If you are concerned about the appearance of your eyes – whether it’s your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both you probably are at the right age to have a blepharoplasty. Dr. Glasberg will discuss the goals you want to achieve with the procedure and answer any questions you may have.  After consultation with you, Dr. Glasberg will be able to determine if a blepharoplasty is the right procedure for you. Contact our office at (212) 717-8550 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Scot Glasberg to discuss the options available for you. 

When you decided to have an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck it was because you wanted to enhance your silhouette and restore your slender appearance. Typically a tummy tuck procedure is undergone because you may have had concerns about:

While a tummy tuck can help reshape your abdominal area and provide you with the look and feel of a flat and well-toned stomach, it is not a substitute for weight loss or an exercise program. Before undergoing a tummy tuck, you needed to meet the following conditions:

With regard to any concerns you may have had about stretch marks before your procedure, you were already aware that a tummy tuck would not remove stretch marks unless they were located in the areas where an excess amount of skin would be removed during your procedure. 

One of the questions you may have had before you had your tummy tuck procedure is how long the results of your tummy tuck will last. The long-term results will depend on you and how you treat your body as well as the lifestyle choices you make after your tummy tuck procedure. A tummy tuck procedure is considered to be permanent but in order for your abdomen to remain firm and flat for many years it requires that you put in the work to maintain your new look. After being given the go-ahead from Dr. Scot Glasberg, you will need to either return to your regular exercise routine or begin a routine so that you can strengthen your core. You will also need to ensure that you maintain your weight by following a healthy diet. If you are of childbearing age you should avoid becoming pregnant so your abdomen will not stretch and lose its elasticity.

If you would like more information about the benefits of a firmer, flatter, and more toned abdomen, contact us at (212) 717-8550 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Scot Glasberg. 

When your breasts have begun to sag it may be the result of the natural effects of aging. Or, it could be the effects of breastfeeding, a pregnancy, weight loss, or overall heredity and the effects of gravity. 

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, can help return your breasts to their youthful shape by trimming excess skin and tightening the tissues that support them. Your breasts will be higher up on your chest and firmer to the touch. Your areolas, which may have also stretched or drooped, can be repositioned or reduced when your breasts are lifted. 

Your breast size will not need to be a concern because a breast lift doesn’t change the size of your breasts unless you consider having a breast reduction or a breast augmentation along with your breast lift. 

NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Scot Glasberg, is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery and he will assess if you are a candidate for a breast lift. Most women who meet the following conditions for a breast lift are women who have the following symptoms:

If you are considering a breast lift there are certain health requirements you need to meet before undergoing the procedure, they include:

The NYC breast lift procedure is typically an outpatient procedure and can range from one and a half hours to three and a half hours in length. After the procedure, you will need to wear a surgical bra or elastic bandage for support which is then replaced with a soft supportive bra that will need to be worn for 24 hours a day for the next month.

If you are considering a breast lift, Dr. Glasberg and his team are committed to providing you with the best possible results and look forward to scheduling your consultation and answering any questions you may have. To schedule an appointment, please call us at (212) 717-8550.

Whether or not it affects you, your family, or your friend, breast cancer will touch your life at some point in time. By understanding the warning signs of breast cancer and your risks you will be able to recognize what is normal and more importantly what is not normal. 

Even with early detection and improvement in the treatment of breast cancer, the COVID-19 pandemic caused many people to put off their regular breast cancer screenings. The pandemic also caused a disruption in the progress of breast cancer research and treatment programs.

While a mammography can serve as a method for early detection, not all breast cancers are found with a mammography. Early detection of breast cancer is an important part of treatment and includes a thorough physical examination as well as a breast self-examination. Current guidelines from the American College of Radiology and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend screening mammograms and physical breast examinations every year beginning at age 40.  

The reason Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held every year in October, since 1985, is to promote the screening and prevention of the disease. It raises awareness of the one in eight women in the United States that are affected by breast cancer. Its aim of the month is directed at:

Included in Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a week devoted to Men’s Breast Cancer Awareness Week. In 2021, President Joseph Biden designated October 17th through October 23rd for raising awareness of men who are expected to be diagnosed with the disease. Lack of awareness can be a barrier to breast cancer detection and treatment. 

The Statistics of Breast Cancer

More than 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. In 2022, it has been estimated that almost 44,000 people, 43,250 women, and 530 men are going to die due to breast cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control, almost 9% of new cases are found in women under the age of 45. While black women are less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer they are 42% more likely to die from the disease because they are more likely to have a more aggressive form of breast cancer starting at a younger age. Men have also been diagnosed with breast cancer but it is not very common. Most women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50 but it also affects younger women. About 10% of new cases of breast cancer are found in women younger than 45 years of age. 

Symptoms of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer symptoms can include the following:

Know Your Risks

By knowing your family’s health history you and your doctor will be able to determine how that affects your breast health and your risks of developing breast cancer. Even if you are at average risk of developing breast cancer, have a mammogram every year. If you do have signs of breast cancer, finding it early and treating it early could be a lifesaver. Know what is normal for you and your body. If it doesn’t seem normal, advocate for yourself with your healthcare provider. 

If you are concerned about developing breast cancer, there are steps you can take that can help. You can make changes to your lifestyle that are within your control. Try by maintaining a weight that is healthy, limit your consumption of alcohol, and make sure to exercise on a regular basis. 

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most in-demand plastic surgery procedures around the world. Men and women of all ages undergo rhinoplasty mainly because they have been embarrassed, or experienced low self-esteem or anxiety about their appearance. In addition to the aesthetic reasons for rhinoplasty, Dr. Scot Glasberg will be able to reshape, reduce, or augment your nose for functional purposes. Birth defects can be corrected, injuries can be repaired and your breathing can be improved. 

A rhinoplasty can change the overall look of your face by causing you previously overlooked facial features to get noticed. Depending on your need, rhinoplasty can alter the shape, size, appearance, and projection of your nose. Rhinoplasty will be able to restore your facial harmony and balance your facial features. 

Reasons to Have a Rhinoplasty

Some of the reasons why most people come to Dr. Glasberg for a rhinoplasty include the following:

Dr. Glasberg may suggest a procedure to complement your rhinoplasty in order for you to achieve a more harmonious balance across your face. A chin implant, a brow lift, or dermal fillers may help to accentuate your other features. Candidates for rhinoplasty should be at least 13 years of age and finish with their facial growth before having the procedure. For good results, patients considering rhinoplasty should be in overall good health, not be smokers, and have a realistic expectation of the outcome of the procedure. 

Dr. Glasberg and his team are committed to providing you with the best possible results and look forward to scheduling your consultation and answering any questions you may have. To schedule an appointment, please call us at (212) 717-8550.

A woman’s breast size and shape are important factors in her self-image, not to mention the image that she presents to the world as a whole. If you are planning on getting breast implants, one of the first things you will probably do is search the Internet for information about what size and shape of breast implant best suits your body type and desired look. There are several different factors to consider when choosing your breast implant size and shape, so the following tips will help you learn how to choose the right one for you.

Choosing the right breast implant size

When it comes to choosing the right breast implant size and shape for you, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, think about your desired look. Do you want a natural look or something more dramatic? Second, consider your body type. If you have a small frame, you may not want to go too big. Third, think about your lifestyle. If you are active and do a lot of physical activity, you may want to choose a smaller implant so it doesn’t get in the way. Fourth, talk to your doctor. They will be able to help you choose the right size and shape based on your individual needs. Fifth, don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are many resources available to help you make this decision. Talk to other women who have had implants, read blogs, speak with surgeons and read books. One thing that I always recommend is getting a second opinion before making any final decisions. It’s important that you feel confident in your decision because these surgeries can be quite expensive.

Choosing Between Round and Textured implants

When it comes to breast implants, there are two main types: round and textured. Round implants are the most popular type and tend to create a more natural look. Textured implants, on the other hand, are less likely to move around and can provide more support for saggy breasts.

Choosing the right shape for your breast implant

When it comes to choosing the right breast implant size and shape for you, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. First, you need to think about your body type and what will look best on you. Second, you must consider your lifestyle and your active lifestyle. Third, you need to think about your budget and what you can afford. Fourth, you need to think about your surgeon and their experience. Fifth, you need to think about the incision site and what will work best for you. Sixth, you need to think about your recovery time and how much downtime you are willing to have.

Understanding breast volume

One of the most important factors in choosing the right breast implant size and shape is understanding your own breast volume. This can be a tricky thing to measure, but there are a few simple steps you can take to get an accurate estimate. 

First, you’ll need to determine your bra size. Second, use a soft tape measure to measure the fullest part of your bust. Finally, take these two measurements and subtract the second measurement from the first. This number will give you a good starting point for finding implants that match your own breast volume. 

Once you know your breast volume, you can start looking at implant sizes and shapes. There are a variety of implant sizes available, so it’s important to find one that’s right for your body type and desired look. When considering what breast implant size would work best for you, remember to consider the following: height, weight, frame size (i.e., wide or narrow), nipple placement (i.e., low or high), chest width, skin elasticity, and muscle tone as well as existing breast tissue (if any). 

Breast augmentation surgery with implants is often considered cosmetic surgery because it does not treat disease or deformity; however, studies have shown that patients who undergo this procedure report feeling more confident and positive about their appearance after surgery. Studies also show better self-esteem scores among post-surgery patients than those who do not undergo any procedures on their breasts.

If you’re thinking about having your breasts lifted, you’re probably wondering if you can still have the procedure without getting breast implants at the same time. The short answer is yes—you absolutely can! While there are many reasons why some women opt to have both procedures done together, there are just as many who have one or the other and don’t feel like they need to do both in order to get the look they want.

Things to consider before opting for a breast lift without implants

Your ideal breast size might be different from what you currently have. If your breasts have always looked and felt great to you, that’s awesome! But if they aren’t as perky or full as you want them to be, don’t fret—you may still want to consider breast lift surgery.

Things to remember when having breast lift surgery

As you’re considering breast lift surgery, there are some things to keep in mind. A breast lift is a fairly common cosmetic procedure that can give patients relief from issues such as drooping breasts and excess skin. But like any procedure, it can also have potential risks if not done properly. It’s important to educate yourself on both before moving forward with treatment plans.

Pre-Surgery Guidelines For Breast Lifts

It is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s pre-surgery guidelines for breast lifts to make sure you are ready for surgery. Make sure you have been exercising and following your diet. Don’t consume any alcohol in the days leading up to surgery as it slows blood flow and delays healing. Do not take ibuprofen or aspirin, as these may thin your blood, which increases bleeding during and after surgery.

Top tips for a successful breast lift without implants

Who is a good candidate for breast lift surgery, and who is not? There are several factors to consider when deciding whether or not you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery.

What is a Breast Lift?

Though lifting and tightening loose or sagging skin is often associated with breast augmentation, breast lifts are also extremely popular procedures. A breast lift is also called mastopexy (which means lifting up your breasts) and involves repositioning and resizing natural breasts. A breast lift is a procedure that focuses on improving the size, shape, position, and symmetry of a woman’s breasts.

What Does the Breast Lift Procedure Entail?

Breast lifts don’t usually require anesthesia and you can go home that same day. The procedure takes about one hour. An incision is made around each nipple, from which excess skin and tissue are removed. The nipples may be repositioned slightly higher on the breast mound to create a more youthful look. This will help reduce the drooping of your breasts with age and weight gain. Sometimes, implants are placed as part of a breast lift; other times, they’re not necessary or preferred.

Post-Surgery Recovery Tips To Follow For A Quick Recovery

Are you recovering from breast lift surgery, but not sure how to handle all of your normal day-to-day responsibilities while your body is healing? There are certain tips and tricks that will allow you to get through recovery without missing a beat. Even though these tips will seem like common sense, some people may not think about them. This list has been created by experienced professionals who have performed hundreds of breast lifts over their careers and have also seen what does and doesn’t work for post-surgery recovery.
