Natural Looking Botox

Botox Natural Results The great thing about Botox and Dysport treatment is the simplicity of how both cosmetic treatments can create such natural looking results. Unfortunately, to many people (and doctors!) out there, if you have Botox or Dysport in your forehead your face will be frozen. That is  because so many people think that Botox and Dysport should freeze all of the muscles in your face. Knock on wood, that is NOT the expectation... Continue Reading

Reduced Pain with Vibrata

What can help with pain when getting Botox injections? One measure that San Diego expert injector, Dr. John Hilinski, uses to reduce pain associated with Botox and Dysport treatment is the vibrata device shown here. This is essentially a small vibrating tool that can be placed on the face during placement of the Botox or Dysport. By creating a buzzing sensation, this helps to distract your brain from the actual pain and discomfort of the... Continue Reading

This patient underwent a number of changes to the shape of her nose. But she also needed... Continue Reading

There are dentists that have injected Botox and Dsyport for TMJ problems - which really does fall into their primary line of work. But for cosmetic wrinkle reduction? A handful of these dentists are... Continue Reading

In fact, many of our patients here in San Diego ask us, "What is the most popular filler right now?" Currently, I would say that Juvederm Vollure is one of the hottest fillers currently being used. For years, Restylane was the only filler that we used under the eye region... Continue Reading

Macrotia Surgery Instant Change

Macrotia surgery is a specific type of cosmetic ear reshaping procedure that helps to reduce the size of one's ear. Ear pinning is a completely different type of cosmetic ear surgery (otoplasty) that simple pulls the ear closer to the head and is much more commonly performed. Macrotia surgery involves actually making the size of the ear smaller - primarily focusing on reducing the upper half of the ear. This is a great example of... Continue Reading

Scapha Reduction Macrotia Surgery

Here is another example of one of my patients who underwent scapha reduction, or macrotia, ear surgery. This is a very rare type of surgery currently only performed by less than a handful of plastic surgeons - but one that I perform on a fairly regular basis. Although this is often discussed as being part of otoplasty surgery - it is quite different than doing ear pinning surgery.  There are quite a few plastic surgeons... Continue Reading

Nasal Valve Stenosis Correction

This is a great example of how rhinoplasty technique is used to help correct a collapsed nasal tip - or narrowed external nasal valve area. This very pleasant gentleman from San Diego was having problems breathing through his nose - especially on his left side. As you can see in his before rhinoplasty surgery photos, the nostril wall would collapse inward upon inspiration. I ended up performing a complex open rhinoplasty procedure that included placement...

Normally, plastic surgeons and rhinoplasty experts, like myself, will see patients for upwards of a year or two after surgery. Rarely do we get to see our rhinoplasty patients 4 years out! As you can see from her photo comparisons provided here, she has a beautiful, sustained... Continue Reading
