Breast Implants: Cleavage Never Goes Out of Style

Breast Augmentation, Dr. CappuccinoBreast augmentation is the #1 cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States, and has increased 30% since the year 2000. As an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Guy Cappuccino uses a variety of  implants, in a full range of shapes and sizes. We’re able to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to the unique needs of our patients. Our September Special is all about cleavage! Let’s talk about breast implants.

Saline & Silicone

We offer both saline and silicone implants, in different shapes, profiles, and textures. The implant may have a round shape, or a teardrop shape. Some of the decision for choosing round or teardrop is based on a patient’s personal preference. The round implant is most commonly used, and it comes in different profiles. Profiles vary by the diameter of the implant base becoming smaller. The breast is projected out further with a smaller diameter, which indicates a higher profile or projection. Most women that have a certain amount of existing breast tissue do very well with the round implant, and it gives a natural appearance.

The teardrop-shaped implant can work well for women that tend to have less natural breast tissue to start with or a breast shape deformity. The profile that is best for the patient is dictated by the existing breast size, the amount of natural breast tissue, the implant size chosen, breast shape, and chest wall shape.

Size

The biggest decision for women tends to be the size of the implant. In addition to the amount of natural breast tissue, size selection also depends on the quality of the breast tissue, and dimensions of the breast. The size of a breast implant is measured in cubic centimeters (cc), and typically varies from 200 ccs to 800 ccs. The cubic centimeters don’t necessarily correlate to a specific cup size, due to the fact that every woman starts with a different amount of natural breast tissue. The most important factor is that our patients choose an implant size that is comfortable, and that creates the type of proportion desired.  We offer New Look Now before and after visualization software free with each consult so women can virtually see their results of breast implants on their body before surgery.

This month only at Guy Cappuccino, MD we’re offering free CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing with your Breast Augmentation purchase. Come in for a private consultation, and we’ll use measurements and an analysis of body shape to help determine which implants will achieve your desired look. Call today to schedule at 301-829-4110.

Lose the Lines this Summer with Botox® / Dysport®

Infini sweat gland ablationHow about a Botox or Dysport treatment for summer? Typically in this sunny season we love to look our best. We’re in natural light and on the go, making memories with family and friends. A refresh to tired eyes or forehead lines might be just the perfect brightening lift you need to boost your confidence. Both of these treatments provide an easy way to lift brows and lose the lines without downtime. You won’t have to take a hiatus from your busy lifestyle.

Botox and Dysport are well-known neuromodulators manufactured by different companies. Both products use botulinum toxin, and are very comparable. Much like the difference between Coke and Pepsi, it’s a preference by the patient and Dr. Cappuccino as well as our experienced and licensed RN Injector Christine.

The repetition of muscle contractions create the wrinkles that patients like to reduce. Over time, squinting and smiling results in crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines between brows. Injected Botox or Dysport diminishes the appearance of these lines, and provides a subtle lift to the brow. These neuromodulators temporarily reduce muscle contractions, which causes the muscles to relax. Relaxed muscles aren’t able to fully respond to nerve impulses. This results in eyes that look refreshed and awake, a smooth forehead, a lifted lip, or a softened chin.

Botox and Dysport can give you a youthful, natural result. As we say in the aesthetics world, fresh not frozen! Come in for a consultation with Dr. Cappuccino or Christine and we’ll customize a treatment plan for your desired result. For the month of July, receive free Botox with your Infini-RF Sweat Gland Ablation series. Stop sweating, and frowning this summer!

Infini: Radiofrequency & Anti-Aging for Summer Skin

shutterstock_134521247-(1) (1)Patients often ask me if there are any good treatments for their skin that can be done in the summer when they know they will be exposed to UV light. This is the perfect time to try Infini. What if we told you this radiofrequency technology tightens skin, treats wrinkles, and corrects acne scarring? Infini provides anti-aging results similar to a non-invasive facelift. Now we have your attention!

For the month of June at Guy Cappuccino, MD we are offering a free syringe of Bellafill filler with your Infini Face & Neck series purchase. Bellafill also helps keep our skin smooth and is perfectly safe any time of year. Many anti-aging treatments like lasers can’t be performed on summer skin, or on patients with darker skin tones, because certain lasers and light treatments are attracted to the darker pigment in your skin. If you have a suntan, or darker skin tone, you can safely have Infini treatments. Unlike lasers, radiofrequency energy is not attracted to the darker pigment. Infini is safer than a laser, with less downtime.

Infini is a revolutionary radiofrequency energy device that tackles aging skin by tightening and treating wrinkles. It also corrects acne scarring. The device sends high intensity radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis of the skin and stimulates collagen production for wrinkle reduction. We lose collagen as we age, so this stimulation of collagen turns the clock back on our skin. Think of it like an anti-aging controlled ‘injury.’ The collagen ‘fights’ back by strengthening and producing 3-D volumization, and this results in more youthful skin.

Since the treatment targets the dermis as opposed to the surface of your skin, it maximizes results with very minimal discomfort and downtime. You might be a little pink the day after treatment, with the potential for some swelling the first 24 hours. You can apply makeup the day after your treatment. Infini is ideal rejuvenation for treating face, neck, and hands. Depending on the number of areas we are treating, your appointment should be 45 minutes to one hour, with an additional hour for pre-treatment numbing.

Call today to schedule your Infini consultation, and we can customize a treatment plan for your desired goal. LIKE us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on Facebook exclusive giveaways and promotions for Infini—and more!
