What's actually falling, however,&nbsp;are the tissues above the corners of the mouth that produces a tired and droopy look. Fortunately, there are a few different treatments and options available to patients today who desire to &quot;lift&quot; the corners of their mouth. For example, injectables are a highly popular way to tighten targeted areas on the face and reintroduce firmness to those areas. Excision of skin is another method that was more common prior to the introduction of injectables.

Modern facelifts look nothing like these outdated procedures. Now, plastic surgeons can perform minimally invasive facelifts that deliver striking and natural-looking results.<br /> <br /> In this video, hear Dr. George Sanders explain <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWZXpiuGxuk&amp;feature=youtu.be" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">your facelift options</a>. Thanks to modern techniques, the elegant results of a facelift can be achieved in a few different ways. Since the appearance of aging is caused by the deflation of fat cells, using fat injections or dermal fillers may be all that is needed. For sagging, endoscopic surgery can be performed to lift dropping fat. Laser resurfacing can put the finishing touch on a new, younger complexion.<br /> <br /> These facelift procedures are just a few of the cosmetic surgeries offered by <a href="/about/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="About Dr. George Sanders - www.drsanderscosmeticsurgery.com">Dr. George Sanders</a>.

Read my latest blog entry <a href="http://www.drsanders.com/blog/" rel="nofollow">&ldquo;It&rsquo;s a losing proposition&rdquo;</a> to find out which diet plans dieters rated highest, and lowest. Some of the more popular plans were Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, and a free smart phone app called MyFitness Pal. &nbsp;Each plan offers it pro&rsquo;s and con&rsquo;s and each is geared towards helping you lose weight; however, some may appeal to you more than others due to lifestyle factors, financial means, etc. Take a look at the <a href="http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2013/02/lose-weight-your-way/index.htm" rel="nofollow">Consumer Report</a> and read my latest blog for more information.

It can help you say goodbye to those pesky areas of fat that diet and exercise can&rsquo;t touch. However, liposuction only gets part of the job done; maintaining those great results is up to you. Contrary to popular belief, you can regain fat after liposuction. Beat the post-lipo weight gain and keep your new, sleek physique with these tips:<br /> <br /> <strong>Drink Plenty of Water</strong><br /> Water is an important part of liposuction recovery. Your need for water doesn&rsquo;t stop when the post-surgery water retention subsides. Staying hydrated and drinking water throughout the day rids your system of toxins and aids in digestion. It also helps keep bloating at bay, since your body will hold onto water if you&rsquo;re not properly hydrated.<br /> <br /> <strong>Exercise Daily</strong><br /> Studies show that <a href="http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/13/after-liposuction-exercise-keeps-the-fat-off/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">exercise is essential to maintaining liposuction results</a>. Get at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity every day. Weight training will also help you keep your post-liposuction shape. Exercise helps keep weight under control, and the build-up of muscle will help you burn even more calories while you&rsquo;re at rest. Committing to exercise will help you develop a healthier lifestyle, which will keep your body trim for years to come.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <strong>Eat Breakfast</strong><br /> Healthy eating habits and watching your calorie intake are important parts of holding onto your liposuction results. Making breakfast a priority is a great first step. It has been demonstrated time and again that people who eat healthy breakfasts are thinner than those who forgo it. When you eat breakfast, you avoid hunger-inducing blood sugar drops and reduce your urge to snack throughout the day.<br /> <br /> If you&rsquo;re considering liposuction, make the <a href="/showcase/cosmetic_procedures/1666/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Cosmetic Procedures from Dr. Sanders - www.drsanderscosmeticsurgery.com">Encino plastic surgery</a> office of Dr. George Sanders your first stop.

You need to have realistic expectations for your plastic surgery and ensure that your cosmetic surgeon is up to the job. The best way to determine if you should go forward with your cosmetic procedure is to ask these important questions during your consultation:<br /> <br /> <strong>What Kind of Training Do You Have?</strong><br /> A botched plastic surgery could have serious consequences for you physically and emotionally. That&rsquo;s why you should make sure your plastic surgeon has the right education and training to perform the procedure you want. You should also quiz him about his certifications and make sure he is <a href="https://abplsurg.org/ModDefault.aspx?section=Faq%23Q1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery</a>.<br /> <br /> <strong>How Often Have You Performed This Plastic Surgery?</strong><br /> Just because your doctor is a plastic surgeon doesn&rsquo;t mean he has performed all types of plastic surgery on a regular basis. If you&rsquo;re looking for a tummy tuck, choose a doctor who has performed the operation hundreds of times and has been at it for several years. If you want a liposuction, don&rsquo;t pick a surgeon who spends most of his time doing brow lifts. The more experience your plastic surgeon has performing the exact procedure you want, the more confident you can feel about the results.<br /> <br /> <strong>What Should I Expect?</strong><br /> Quiz your plastic surgeon about what he thinks he can realistically achieve for you with the procedure. Knowing this will prevent disappointment down the line. You should also ask about what to expect during the procedure itself: How can you prepare? How will the surgery work, and what will the recovery be like?<br /> <br /> At the Encino plastic surgery practice of Dr. George Sanders, we&rsquo;re always here to answer all your questions.

As opposed to a breast augmentation, a breast reduction is used for patients who are looking to reduce the size of their breast by removing both fat and breast tissue from within. When deciding the amount by which you want to reduce the size of your breasts, there are a number of important factors to keep in mind such as body size, maintaining proper bodily proportions, and preserving the blood supply to the nipple region.</p> <p> To learn more, read my latest blog <a href="http://www.drsanders.com/blog/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">&quot;</a><em><a href="http://www.drsanders.com/blog/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">How Small Can I Go With a Breast Reduction?&quot;</a></em>&nbsp;on my blog.

If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, you might consider rhinoplasty to improve your look. <a href="http://www.drsanders.com/rhinoplasty.html" rel="nofollow" title="Rhinoplasty - www.drsanders.com/rhinoplasty.html">Rhinoplasty</a> is a common surgical procedure that can be tailored to facilitate the specific changes you want in the appearance of your nose. Skin, cartilage, and bone are often altered during a rhinoplasty&mdash;however, the specifics of your procedure will be determined during your surgical consultation. Here are a few signs that you should consider a rhinoplasty:</p> <ul> <li> <strong>Your Nose Bends to One Side</strong></li> </ul> <p> The <a href="http://www.plasticsurgery.org/cosmetic-procedures/nose-surgery-.html?sub=Rhinoplasty%20surgery%20steps#content" rel="nofollow">position of your nose</a> can be reestablished during rhinoplasty surgery. For instance, this procedure can correct a bend that compromises the symmetry of your face. A bend at the tip of your nose can also be altered to turn up or down, depending on the look you prefer.</p> <ul> <li> <strong>Your Nose Is Too Large</strong></li> </ul> <p> Tissue can be removed to reduce the width or length of the nose, and the bone can be reshaped to correct a bump on the bridge. By reducing the size of the nose through these changes, you&rsquo;ll see a better balance with the rest of your face and a better overall appearance.</p> <ul> <li> <strong>Your Nose Is Too Small</strong></li> </ul> <p> Rhinoplasty can also benefit individuals who feel as if their nose is too small. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon can build up the tissue in a nose that is too thin or pointed, thus filling it out.</p> <ul> <li> <strong>You Have Trouble Breathing</strong></li> </ul> <p> Surgery should be considered for practical reasons as well as cosmetic. For instance, it can correct a deviated septum or repair damage sustained through facial injury.
