Sweater, scarves, and mittens are gone from store shelves at famous boutiques, making way for tank tops, sundresses, and bikini wear. As the smell of the salt water and sweet ocean breeze steadily creeps closer, many will scurry to jump on treadmills, trade pizza for salad, and read the numbers on the scale with hope of weight loss in sight. For some of us however, no matter how much diet and exercise replaces our hours in front of the television and hearty meals of carbohydrates, areas of stubborn fat remain. Luckily, these areas of fat unresponsive to weight loss can be sculpted thanks to liposuction in NYC.
Liposuction is ideal for patients who exercise regularly, are in decent physical and mental shape, and eat healthy. While it is not a weight loss procedure, liposuction in NYC will sculpt your contours, slimming your appearance.
During the liposuction procedure, board certified plastic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Darrick Antell, removes excess areas of fat through a very small incision. Once removed, the fat does not come back. Your newly contoured body is permanent, providing patients continue to exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet. If patients do gain weight, often the weight is better distributed. Learn more about lipo in NYC below:
Liposuction can be performed on several places of the body, including the arms, thighs, chin, cheeks, buttocks, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, and calves.
Dr. Antell performs liposuction in NYC under local anesthesia combined with a sedative. He offers twilight anesthesia, where patients feel as though they are falling asleep naturally, for added patient comfort. Patients often return to work two to three days following liposuction in NYC. Mild swelling and bruising should dissipate within one to two months, so you can enjoy your shapely body at the beach this summer.

Happy National Skin Cancer Awareness Month! As the warmer days settle in, remember to practice safe sun protection! Wear a sunblock that prevents both UVA & UVB rays and is 30+ SPF or higher! In addition to protecting your skin, New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell, reminds patients to do a skin self-check-looking for any suspicious mole growths or changes. Early detection and self-exams from head to toe could ultimately save your life. So, what should you look for and when should you see your plastic surgeon? According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, patients should look for any new lesions that develop and keep a close eye on past molds for any suspicious changes. Knowing the warning signs to look for in a mole will help you determine when to see your doctor and consider mole removal in NYC. These signs follow the ABCD method:
Asymmetry: Look for any signs of your mole changing in size. Melanomas are usually asymmetric, meaning one side may not reflect the other.
Border: Look for signs of your mole changing in and around the edges of the mole. This includes if they become blurred, irregular, or ragged.
Color: Normal moles are one hue in color. Keep note of changes in the shade of the mole, including hues of tan, brown, black, blue, white, or red.
Diameter: Melanomas are usually greater than the eraser of a pencil, though some have been diagnosed at a smaller size.
While anyone can get skin cancer, some individuals are at an increased risk. You may be at a higher risk of developing skin cancer if you have:
Lighter skin tone
Family history of skin cancer
History of sunburns earlier in life
Skin that burns, freckles, or reddens easily
Naturally blonde or red hair
Wearing sunscreen proves to be an important factor in protecting skin from the sun’s rays. However, there are several steps you can take to practice safe sun, including:
Seeking shade during midday hours
Covering up exposed skin
Wearing a wide brim hat
Keep your skin safe this summer! Stay in the know and stay educated about the safety and risks of skin cancer in NYC. Dr. Antell and our staff welcome any questions you may have about skin cancer in NYC or mole removal.

Many of us have different definitions of beauty. Some believe a beautiful person must have both looks and personality, while others may believe beauty comes from an eye-catching appearance, or simply a loveable charisma. If you asked a scientist however, he might have a completely different answer. This is because scientists believe that beauty is in fact measurable.
According to the scientific golden ratio of beauty, the measurements between an individual’s facial features are what create a “beautiful” person. Mathematicians have deemed that the ratio between the nose and mouth should be 1.618. The more rationed an individual’s face is, the more a person’s looks meet the aesthetic appeal of what society sees as beauty, whether we realize it or not.
While all facial features pertain to the golden ratio of beauty, some are more prominent than others are. The two most influential facial features that influence an individual’s look are their nose and chin. Both the nose and chin work together in defining your look. An overly large nose can cause a chin to appear smaller, while an overly large chin can cause the nose to appear smaller. When you are unsatisfied with the contours of your face, chin implants in NYC and rhinoplasty may be the right option for you.
During the chin implant procedure in NYC, Dr. Antell will help you determine the best size and shape implant to suit your individual feature. If you choose to combine both chin implants and nose surgery in NYC, Dr. Antell will perform them the same day for an easier recovery time.
Check out some of our before and afters of chin impalnts below!
Chin implants, also known as chin augmentation in NYC, combined with nasal surgery can improve the measurement of your features. Done together, they will bring both harmony and balance to your face, for an even look of enhanced beauty. Patients can choose to have chin augmentation or nasal surgery done individually.
Discover your balance of beauty with rhinoplasty and chin implants in NYC. Dr. Antell and our staff welcome any questions you may have about nose surgery or chin augmentation in New York City.

Spring into a new you this season, and discover a variety of minimally invasive reconstructive options at the office of Dr. Antell! With summer only a few months away, it’s time to start thinking bikinis, shorts, and tank tops! While many prepare their look with liposuction and breast implants, sometimes all you may need is a minor change to make a big difference in the way you look and feel about your body. In fact, procedures such as earlobe repair, mole removal, and scar revision have increased tremendously in popularity and have helped patients achieve a look they love. Read more about each procedure below, and learn how you can enhance your look and your life!
Earlobe repair: Sometimes, unexpected injuries occur in life. An innocent tug on the ear, heavy earrings, or childhood accidents may cause a ripped or torn earlobe. Earlobe repair in NYC can repair both simple tears of the earlobe and extensive damage, such as earlobes that have been stretched by gauges or are missing a chunk of tissue. Repairing earlobes can be immediately performed or delayed depending on if the tissue is inflamed. If a piece of the ear is completely missing, dead tissue is removed from around the site of the rip. The two sides are then stitched together to allow the ear to heal slowly. Since the earlobe consists of only skin and fat, it is more prone to tearing than other parts of the ear.

Mole removal: While many people are born with moles, you should be wearisome of newly formed moles or any moles that begin to change in appearance. Suspicious signs to look for when examining your mole include changes in asymmetry, border, or color. In some circumstances, patients choose to have their moles removed simply for appearance reasons. Whatever your motivation, Dr. Antell can help you safely and effectively remove your moles.

Scar revision surgery: Scar revision has helped patients re-claim their beautiful skin by minimizing the appearance of scars. Scar revision surgery can address scars from injury, as well as past surgeries, including Mohs Reconstruction. One scar revision option includes the injection of a certain steroid medication, leaving patients with little to no scarring. Dr. Antell would be more than happy to discuss these options with you.
