Despite the tough economic times we are experiencing now, people still want to look good. In fact, with such a severely contracted labor market, a more youthful appearance may actually help you compete for a job more effectively. Besides, you just want to look better.

Are there actually ways that you can improve your looks without emptying your financial reserves?

The answer may be yes. For example, though a facelift, CO2 laser facial skin resurfacing or even eyelid surgery may dramatically rejuvenate your appearance, the price could be too costly for you right now. Though not a substitute, Botox® and facial dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Restylane® may provide significant enough improvements to make you look and feel better and may even help you better compete for a job. Furthermore, these can be selected at a fraction of the price of more extensive facial rejuvenation. Interestingly, this is exactly the approach that many people have selected during the recession these last few years.

We do offer you a variety of choices in addition to Botox® to help you look better. These include the dermal fillers (skin plumping agents) Juvederm®, Restylane®, Radiesse® and Perlane®. Each one may possess distinct advantages for you depending on multiple factors including the areas that you are considering improving. These dermal fillers can be used to give you more youthful appearing lips, soften the creases around your mouth, fill in depressions at the jowls and various creases or scars on your face, create more prominent cheekbones, and even provide more fullness for sunken in cheeks. Depending on your goals, areas of concerns and financial situation, I can help tailor a strategy that can assist you in obtaining that desirable look which will also fit your budget.

If you are considering Botox® or facial dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Radiesse®, you would like information on any plastic surgery procedure that I perform or if you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation with me, please call my office at 480-451-3000.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
