Bootleg ‘Botox’ and Folly Fillers~ Trend or Terror?

Dr. Spence specializes in revisionary facial plastic surgery and he is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of patients coming to him with facial deformities, serious infections, and in some cases irreversible damage after being injected with bootleg “Botox” and folly (illegal) fillers.

More and more people are being lured into clandestine hotels, ‘spas’ and people’s homes, no questions asked, to be injected with ‘cheap’ “Botox” and “dermal fillers”.  What they don’t know is that the ‘cost’ they will pay will not be ‘cheap‘ at all.

In rare instances when the ‘fillers’ can be removed the surgery required is usually more extensive than a facelift!

Dr. Spence is a huge advocate for public and patient safety and is appalled by the terror of this so called “trend.”  He encourages people to ask questions first to avoid devastating results market fillers 1black market fillers 2

Facelift~ Then and Now: A Look At How Far Modern Techniques Have Come

More often than not, when patients hear Dr. Spence say the word ‘facelift,’ I see an immediate change in their posture and a grimace come across their faces.  This is because the traditional facelift done years ago typically resulted in a ‘windblown’ or ‘pulled back,’ unnatural look which is definitely NOT a desired look for most patients and it certainly is not a look Dr. Spence wishes to deliver.

The great news is, today’s facelift is NOTHING like it used to be!  Nowadays, plastic surgeons understand that a ‘youthful’ look is a full, soft, natural one, not a hollowed out, pulled back, skeletal one.

Dr. Spence performs and recommends an array of modern, less invasive, facial rejuvenation techniques such as the MACS (minimal access cranial suspension) lift which can be performed under local anesthesia, corrects the cheek folds and jowls, has a shorter recovery time, causes less bruising and swelling, and can be combined with treatments like fat grafting, fillers, lasers, chemical peels, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries and best of all…it’s more affordable!

Call today for a consultation to learn more about new and improved facial rejuvenation techniques!  You may just be surprised at how far the ‘facelift’ has come!

Can You Still Breast Feed after Having Cosmetic Breast Surgery?

The answer is…it depends.  bigstockphoto_Breastfeeding

It depends on the person, the timing, the doctor, and the procedure.  The possibility of being able to breast feed after cosmetic breast surgery is correlated to a number of variable.  It is very important to understand that many women that have never had breast surgery are unable to breast feed due to other variables. Therefore, if you have your first baby after you have had cosmetic breast surgery it is absolutely impossible to predict whether or not it is related to the surgery.

Let me break it down even further.  Most ’20 something’s’ can get breast implants  (breast augmentation) without hindering their ability to breast feed down the road (if they were able to breast feed in the first place).

However, patients that undergo more extensive surgeries like breast reductions and uplifts which involve removal of breast tissue have a decreased number of milk ducts after the procedure because they are contained in the tissue that has to be removed.

This is why it’s so important to have a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making ANY decision to proceed with cosmetic surgery on your breasts.

Call us for a consultation if you are considering having cosmetic breast surgery because the right plan and right timing, on the right person is crucial for optimal results! You are unique~ your surgical plan should be too!
