Why ThermiVa® for Vaginal Rejuvenation?

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®?

Allergan Breast Implant Options

It was only a little more than 10 years ago that the choice of breast implants at our Toledo, Ohio practice — and throughout the U.S. — was limited to round, saline implants. That’s all changed and women getting breast augmentation have more choices than ever when it comes to implants, including both saline and silicone gel. Allergan, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of breast implants, has 5 different styles. The traditional implants I used for years were the Style 10, 15, 20 and 45 that are filled with silicone gel to about 85% capacity of the outer shell. … Read More

If you have reached or are nearly at your ideal weight, but are struggling with stubborn … Read More

  Say ‘Goodbye’ to Your Double Chin!  KYBELLA™ is all the rage right now, but as with any trending new procedure or treatment, we first wanted to take a careful look at it to ensure it offers only the best results.  Here is what we found: What is KYBELLA? It is a non-surgical injectable solution used for reducing the fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” The solution contains a chemical that naturally occurs within our bodies to eat away dietary fat.
