New Year's resolutions -get a plastic surgery check up

It’s that time when people make new year’s resolutions. So, have you made one to get your plastic surgery check up? WHAT? your thinking, I don’t need a checkup. After all, I come in when I need or want something. And, just like all our patients, you know we are always here when you do. So, why schedule a checkup?

Reasons to get a plastic surgery check up

Here are a couple of examples why you should get a checkup:

Breast Surgeries:

For my breast augmentation patients, there are several questions you should ask yourself and discuss with me:

  • When did you last have your implants checked?
  • If it’s been several years, are you still happy with the size?
  • Have you gained or lost weight that affects the way your breasts look?
  • Have you had children since getting your implants?
  • Has some age-related sagging or asymmetry developed over time?

There may be newer options available that address your concerns. But, you won’t know unless you come in for a checkup.

Facial Procedures:

When you look in the mirror, are you noticing changing to something you had “fixed” before no longer looks as good as it did? No need to fret and feel bad about it. Time for a checkup and discussion about your options. No matter what your issue, if you want a little or a lot more, let’s discuss what is right for you.

Sometimes, the best way to achieve the look you want is for me to use a combination of surgical and nonsurgical techniques.

  • You had Brow Lift a few years ago, but now you’re seeing a bit of sagging again. Maybe a bit of Botox is the solution.
  • You’ve been having Botox to keep a fresher look around your eyes, but you’re not getting the results you want anymore. Is it time to talk about your surgical options?

Let’s talk!

Schedule an appointment. Come in and let’s talk. No cookie cutter solution; instead, together you and I create a plan that meets your particular needs and wants.


My goal is to help my patients’ outside appearance match how they feel on the inside, to be the physical expression of their inner self.
