4 Steps to Help You Prep for Your Facelift

Information gathering, careful research, and thoughtful reflection will help ensure you get the best results.

We believe it’s important that every person considering […]

The High SMAS Facelift: The New Gold Standard

Natural.

Looking younger is a given, but of all the results people want from a facelift, it’s ones that are natural. As we age, the skin grows lax and loose. This is a normal part of the aging process, and, ofcourse, part of the problem that can be corrected with a facelift.

But too many facelifts take on a plastic, unnatural look, a look more frozen and […]

Will your surgeon show you before-and-after pictures?

If your plastic surgeon won’t show you before-and-after pictures of previous patients, or says they don’t have any, that’s a huge red flag — and one that should make you seriously consider looking elsewhere.

Why are those pictures so important? Because no matter how well-credentialed a surgeon is, no matter how much experience they have, no matter how great they are at building relationships, in the end, it all comes down to the results. And when you’re […]

Is Botox right for you? | Lawton MD

Patients with “dynamic wrinkles” — those that are caused by smiling, laughing, frowning and other facial movements — often choose Botox® injections to improve their appearance. In fact, this treatment is our most popular non-surgical procedure, in part because it’s quick (less than a half-hour), easy (no recovery time required) and effective (results last up to four months).

If you’re looking to gracefully minimize the effects of aging, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tenley Lawton can help. She […]

How a Mommy Makeover gives mothers more confidence

After women give birth, they fall in love with their child — but all too often, they fall out of love with their own appearance. After all, pregnancy has a significant impact on many different areas of a woman’s body, and frequently those areas stop responding to traditional weight-loss methods.

That’s why so many women choose a Mommy Makeover from Dr. Tenley Lawton. She’s more than just an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon — she’s a mother of […]

How large should my breast implants be? | Lawton MD

If you feel your breasts are too small, or if they’ve lost volume due to weight loss or aging, implants can provide you with a fuller look and a firmer feel.

Although breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure, each is unique — just like the desires of each patient. Some women want large implants, while others want breasts that look […]

It’s very common for women to struggle with getting their body back to the way it was before having children.

Three questions to ask yourself when considering a facelift | Lawton MD

Our faces provide our first impression to others — and they often can tell a story without a single word.

However, the effects of time, gravity, genetics and even weather can start to impact those impressions, and those stories, as we get older. And those changes aren’t always positive. Fortunately, they don’t have to be permanent, either. A facelift from Dr. Tenley Lawton can ease your most visible signs of aging by tightening muscles, removing excess […]

Will I need to have my breast implants redone?

There are a lot of misconceptions out there regarding breast augmentation (see our “Breast implants: questions and answers”), but one that often makes women very hesitant is the notion they’ll have to have surgery every few years to replace implants.

For the vast majority of patients, that’s simply not true. When breast augmentation is performed correctly, implants should last 10 to 20 years with no complications, depending on a patient’s body and lifestyle.

Recovering from a tummy tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can be very helpful for women with abdominal muscles and skin that can’t regain their elasticity after pregnancy. But because those patients are busy moms, many worry about how long the recovery will take afterward.

Because a tummy tuck is one of our more involved procedures, recovery time is a bit longer than a more basic surgery. Your muscles need time to heal and re-form, and you simply need time […]

Is Liposuction My Only Option for Body Contouring?

Liposuction can be an excellent option for patients who have difficulties firming up a trouble spot, such as inner thighs or arms or the lower stomach after having a baby. The removal of excess fatty deposits can create a more sculpted, contoured look that emphasizes your curves or muscles.

Should I Get Chin Augmentation with My Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures nowadays. Unfortunately, it cannot solve all facial imbalance problems. A smaller, or “weak,” chin can often make the nose appear larger than it really is – an issue a rhinoplasty alone cannot compensate for.
That’s why many people opt to have chin augmentation at the same time as their rhinoplasty. This results in a more balanced face and stronger profile. There are two types […]

Following pregnancy, many women opt for breast implant surgery to correct reductions in breast size, resulting from fluctuating hormones. And of course many breast implant candidates are simply interested in […]

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A simple smile—there’s hardly a better way to show the world who we are.

How Long After Breastfeeding Should You Wait to Have a Breast Augmentation?

When new mothers are breastfeeding, their breasts become enlarged due to milk production. Many women find this to be a bit of a “bonus,” enjoying their fuller appearance as they nurse their new addition.

However, once breastfeeding ends, the breasts shrink — in some instances, they become smaller than they were before the pregnancy. And even if they return to the same size they were before, often the firmness and overall appearance have changed significantly.

For those reasons, it’s not uncommon for […]
