In 2012, thousands of American men and women visited their cosmetic surgeons for a broad spectrum of surgical procedures, including liposuction, breast implants, facelifts, and nose jobs. Whether you are considering a non-invasive procedure such as microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing or are weighing the benefits of cosmetic surgery, read on to review these new trends and popular favorites in plastic surgery.
In 2012, the top cosmetic surgeries were breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, facelift, liposuction, and nose reshaping. Some women prefer a dramatic look, while other women opt for a more subtle profile. There is no “one size fits all” rule for breast implants, and your cosmetic surgeon can help you select the size, shape, and material that is right for you.
A facelift rejuvenates sagging or wrinkled skin by literally lifting the soft tissue back to its original position. In a facelift, your cosmetic surgeon will add volume and tighten the skin, tissue, and muscle on your face to achieve a fresh, smooth appearance.
Liposuction has long been one of the most requested plastic surgery techniques. This cosmetic procedure involves inserting a long thin tube called a cannula into the body to dispel stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise for an overall slimming and smoother appearance.
Rhinoplasty, also called a “nose job” or nose reshaping, enhances the overall beauty and youth of your face by modifying the shape of your nose. If your nose appears too large for your face, droops or plunges, is off-center or crooked, or you have a bump on your nasal bridge, ask your cosmetic surgeon if you may be a good candidate for a nose job.

In February of 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a new highly cohesive, anatomically shaped silicone-gel filled breast implant for breast augmentation and cosmetic reconstruction procedures. The cosmetic surgeons at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre of Houston are dedicated to offering our Texas clients the newest medical technologies and surgical techniques for breast lifts, augmentation, reconstruction, and reduction. If you are considering breast implants, schedule a consultation with your Spring cosmetic surgeon, and check out this overview of new Natrelle breast implants.
How Are Natrelle Breast Implants Different?
Natrelle breast implants are currently the most requested breast implants in Canada and Europe, and qualified American cosmetic surgeons are proud to offer this additional option to women in the United States. Natrelle breast implants are designed using state-of-the-art silicone gel technology that mimics the natural slope and softness of the breast while maintaining its shape over time. While a cosmetic surgeon may still use silicone or saline breast implants for some patients, speak to your doctor to determine if the aesthetic benefits of Natrelle implants may be right for you.
Am I a Good Candidate for Natrelle Breast Implants?
Natrelle silicone breast implants are recommended for women who are at least 22 years old and want to increase their breast size or correct a previous breast augmentation surgery that has left them unsatisfied. Your cosmetic surgeon may also recommend Natrelle implants for a primary breast reconstruction surgery to replace breast tissue that either failed to develop properly or has been removed after an illness such as breast cancer. Breast implants are not recommended for women who are currently being treated for cancer or who are pregnant or breast feeding.
The cosmetic surgeons at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre are proud to offer our male and female clients in Katy, Sugar Land, and The Woodlands a broad spectrum of breast augmentation and reduction surgeries. Whether your breasts are too small, too large, or need to be lifted, call (281) 205-4006 today to set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon who is experienced in breast implants.

Losing weight is hard work. As you will learn in this video, it is simply a myth that liposuction can entirely replace diet and exercise to help you drop extra pounds. Your cosmetic surgeon will advise you that the liposuction procedure is for individuals who have stubborn fat pockets that will not go away, no matter what you do. For formerly obese patients who have successfully lost their excess weight, a new study reveals that a tummy tuck to eliminate sagging skin can actually help patients keep the weight off for good.
To learn more about liposuction, tummy tucks, and other procedures designed to help you look and feel your best, call the Houston office of Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre. Our experienced plastic surgeons offer the highest standard in personalized and comfortable medical care. For more information, call us today at (281) 205-4006.

Spring has finally arrived and we are seeing an increasing number of patients getting ready for summer. Bathing suit time means more "skin exposure" time. Patients are wanting to look better as well as feel better about themselves. It's important to remember to protect your skin. Our SmartLipo procedures are helping patients remove those localized areas of fat such as love handles, mid-abdomen, neck, upper arms, saddlebags, and inner thighs. The SmartLipo procedure also tightens the overlying skin and stimulates collagen growth.
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a great way to rejuvenate your skin before summer hits. The system we use is the Lumenis Total FX system, the gold standard in laser resurfacing. It is the most powerful machine on the market, which allows the laser beams to treat the damaged skin much faster and minimize the chance of burning the skin while at the same time achieving maximum results. Laser resurfacing also works great for traumatic and acne scars and we are developing a pilot program to treat patients for stretch marks.
Jenny Vazquez, who is a certified laser technician and aesthetician, is getting great results both with photo facial IPL treatments and VI Peels. Now is the time to get rid of unwanted hair with laser hair reduction. We have many specially priced packages for you to take advantage of. We offer aesthetician and laser technician services both at our main office on Cypresswood and at our Bella Dermage Med Spa on Dotson Road adjacent to Methodist Willowbrook Hospital.
We will be having specials on our neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport) as well as our fillers (Juvederm, Perlane) throughout April. Watch for a separate e-blast. If you're not on our e-mail list, contact us at email@example.com to sign up.
Dr. Perlman is going to be featured on Channel 2 News regarding his results with platelet rich plasma (PRP) and how it benefits his cosmetic surgery patients. He is using it with CO2 laser resurfacing, microneedle therapy, as well as with dermal fillers ,including plasma gel. Platelet rich plasma and plasma gel are derived from a 1 ounce sample of the patient's blood, processed and then reinjected into the skin, as well as applied topically. PRP contains 6-8 times the bioactive proteins and growth factors vital to for skin rejuvenation and healing. Results last up to a year.
The Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre also offers B12 injections as well as B12 plus fat burner injections. The B12 improves sleep and increase metabolism as well as gives patients more stamina and mental alertness. The amino acids and B complex vitamins are fat burner additives that speed up removal of fat within the liver and help our patients lose weight gradually and safely. The injections are usually given on a weekly basis. Many of our patients, both men and women, who are on our bio identical hormone therapy program have noticed much more energy.
Contact the office at 281-655-8200 for more information on any of these procedures that we offer. We are here to help you look, and feel, your best.

Having a child is a life- and body-changing event. While the joys of motherhood have no comparison, the side effects of pregnancy and childbirth can cause some women to become dissatisfied with their appearance. Wanting to regain your former physique is understandable, which is why cosmetic surgeons provide enhancement options specifically for mothers. If you would like to get back the body you had before having children, you may want to consider a mommy makeover.
No two mommy makeovers are the same, because no two women respond to pregnancy the same. For some women, becoming a mother means losing breast volume or experiencing sagging breast tissue. For others, having a baby results in stretched stomach tissue. Still other mothers cannot shed the extra pounds they gain during pregnancy, regardless of diet or exercise. A mommy makeover can address each or all of these problems. Many women who undergo mommy makeovers receive breast augmentation, breast lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction.
A mommy makeover can enhance the body and improve the spirit. When you look good, you feel good, which is important for all mothers. Having a tummy tuck can allow you to wear outfits that boost your confidence. Having liposuction can remove unneeded weight that drains your energy and stamina. With an improved physique and perspective, you are better able to perform your motherly responsibilities.
If you’re a mom who wants to enhance her body, you may be an eligible candidate for a mommy makeover. Whether you’re looking for curvier breasts, a tighter stomach, or a slimmer figure, a cosmetic surgeon can help you achieve the results you want. The best way to get started on your path to a more pleasing appearance is to consult a reputable cosmetic surgeon who can capably address your enhancement needs.
Are you considering a mommy makeover? Then call Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre at (281) 205-4006 to make an appointment with board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Joseph Perlman. Our Houston facility offers many plastic surgery options, including breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and liposuction.
