As we head into spring in Ohio, I thought it would be a good time to discuss abdominoplasty and body contouring surgeries, as well as non-invasive procedures for the body. Warmer weather usually leads people to start changing their hair, makeup and more specifically the types of clothes they wear. To some that may mean putting sweaters and scarves away, pulling out some of their favorite sleeveless pieces, or adding new clothing to their wardrobe. In some instances, the look or the fit might not make them feel as confident as they once felt. Typically, this is when I get … Read More
Estheticians, Krissy King and Jannette Garcia, traveled to Austin, Texas this weekend to a Microneedling Theory Seminar with Dr. Lance Setterfield, an international authority and educator on Microneedling.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Breast Augmentation is one of the Top 5 Cosmetic Surgical Procedures (most requested surgical procedures). A Great deal of information has been written on this most popular surgery and breast implant options. Every surgeon’s approach to breast augmentation can be a little bit different. Early in the process of a patient deciding on a breast augmentation, I like to have the patient concentrate more on the type of look that they want rather than the type of implant or a specific aspect of surgery. Some of the questions that I ask patients … Read More
My goal for every patient with questions or concerns about their breasts is that I create and maintain breast harmony while achieving what they are interested in. Sometimes the patient doesn’t know exactly what bothers them about their breasts. They may think that their breasts are too small, have never been big enough, or were big enough but are now smaller after childbirth, aging, or weight loss. Breasts sometimes don’t have enough volume, lose firmness, don’t match, aren’t in the same position on the chest right versus left, or the patient’s chest isn’t symmetrical before you even look at the … Read More
Noninvasive fat removal: what technologies exist, what works, what is hype. First of all, I want to talk about CoolSculpting which has been on the market almost 10 years. I have 8 years of use and experience with the device. CoolSculpting is the gold standard, in my opinion, for noninvasive fat removal. CoolSculpting represents 70% of the noninvasive fat removal market and is the technology that all others market against. It is FDA cleared for treatment of 8 specific areas. These aren’t FDA clearances for technology that is shared by multiple companies, but these are specific FDA clearances for CoolSculpting. … Read More
Women concerned about reduced vaginal sensitivity or leaky bladders now have a number of nonsurgical treatment options available. We’ve researched the various devices and decided to offer ThermiVa® at our northwestern Ohio practice because it’s by far the most effective of the treatments. What is ThermiVa®? The 45-minute ThermiVa® procedure increases blood flow and stimulates nerve endings using radiofrequency energy. It’s used both internally and externally, meaning both the vagina and labia are treated. ThermiVa® produces a sustained comfortable temperature elevation that is necessary to get the desired results. The controlled radiofrequency energy needs time and an elevated temperature to … Read More
