Take Charge of your Chin with Chin Implants in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 AT 3:29 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Committing to a healthy diet and regular exercise program in honor of National Nutrition Month for March is a wonderful, natural way to become more fit, have more energy, and feel great about yourself. A healthy lifestyle can tone your muscles and increase your strength and stamina. Although you may lose weight and gain all of these additional physical and emotional benefits, some problem areas, especially your facial features, may be resistant to all your hard work. One of the most difficult features to define is the line of your jaw and chin, especially if you have a naturally underdeveloped chin. Dr. Darrick E. Antell offers chin implants in NYC to give patients a stronger, more pronounced chin and more balanced facial features.

Chin implant surgery

Physical fitness can potentially define the sharp contours of the face, but the chin isn’t a muscle that can be made large through weightlifting or fat that can be toned down through dieting. The size and shape of some body and facial features unfortunately isn’t something that can be changed with good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Chin implants in New York, however, is an outpatient cosmetic surgery in NY that can enhance the definition and shape of your chin. The implant itself is made of hard silicone and is inserted either through a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth along the lower lip. Dr. Antell performs the procedure in approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Patients will be under local anesthetic and twilight sedation to ensure their comfort and safety throughout surgery. Local anesthetic will numb the chin and surrounding area, and twilight sedation induces a natural-feeling sleep, so patients breathe on their own but are unaware during chin implants in NY.

Most patients return to work within two or three days following the procedure, although strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for about two weeks. The stitches used during chin implant surgery in NYC are dissolvable, but patients can expect to schedule a follow-up visit with Dr. Antell in the weeks following surgery. Mild swelling usually occurs during the first one to two days following surgery, but swelling will mostly subside within 5 to 7 days.

Chin implants can help you define your physical appearance as you work throughout National Nutrition Month to define your life. Reward all your hard work by considering chin implants in New York City to achieve the defined chin that you deserve.  Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S. and his staff welcome patients to voice any questions or concerns you may have about chin implants in NY.

Don't Let Your Eyes Give you Away with a Blepharoplasty in NYC

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012 AT 2:45 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Blepharoplasty surgery

The wisdom and experience gathered from years of living eventually manifest outwardly in your physical appearance. Puffy bags, a drop of one or both upper eyelids, droop below the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles spread from the outer edges of the eye, and the top eyelid may begin to sag as well, possibly even restricting your field of vision. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S. offers blepharoplasty in New York City to reduce the outward signs of aging around the eyes and improve the functional problems that may result from puffy, sagging eyelids, such as restricted field of vision. Keep the wisdom and experience of age while regaining the smooth contours and bright-eyed look of youth! Consider blepharoplasty in NY with Dr. Antell and watch the years vanish from under your eyes.

Blepharoplasty in New York is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons, right under breast augmentation and liposuction. During blepharoplasty in NYC, patients will receive a local anesthetic combined with an intravenous sedative, so they are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Darrick Antell will remove excess fat and skin from the upper and/ or lower eyelids in order to restore a more youthful appearance to the face and brighten the look of the eyes. Sagging in the upper eyelid that may have blocked part of your vision will be removed, so you can once again enjoy a full field of vision. Patients who only need fat removed from their lower eyelids will receive an incision on the inside of the eyelid, completely avoiding any visible scars.  This has been called the fat melting blepharoplasty and no sutures are used in this technique.  Other patients may need excess fat and skin removed, but Dr. Antell will place incisions along the natural creases and folds in the eyelids, making scars as inconspicuous as possible. Although blepharoplasty in NY cannot improve crow’s feet around the eyes or improve droopy eyebrows, blepharoplasty is often combined with other procedures, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic in New York or facelift in NYC, to give patients an overall facial rejuvenation.   If one or both eyelids are droopy (ptosis), that can be treated with a blepharoplasty in New York at the same time as a ptosis repair in NY.  Bruising and swelling may last for a few days following surgery.   Once your eyelids are completely healed from blepharoplasty in New York, however, you will enjoy a more youthful appearance and energized expression.

Don't Miss your Kiss this Valentines Day with a Facelift in NYC

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2012 AT 5:04 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Facelift

The most romantic night of the year is creeping just around the weekend. Boxes of chocolate, roses, and cards are frantically being bought by people who procrastinated and impending getaways are being anticipated by people who didn’t, but one thing most couples have in common whether they procrastinated or not, assuming they didn’t forget about Valentine’s Day completely, is that the night will either begin, or at the very least end, with a kiss. As the years pass, facial skin begins to sag, and you may not feel as confident as you once did while leaning in close for the Valentine’s Day kiss. The contours and angles of facial features begin to sag, facial muscles loosen, and cheeks sallow, giving your expression a tired, aged appearance that you may not actually feel. Consider facelift in New York City with Darrick E. Antell, M.D., F.A.C.S.to give your face the rejuvenation and yourself the confidence to enjoy your Valentine’s Day kisses every year.

Darrick E. Antell, M.D., F.A.C.S. offers facelift in NYC for patients who would like to reduce the appearance of facial aging. Facelift in New York will tighten sagging muscles, remove excess fat and sagging skin, reposition underlying tissues, and give your face a rejuvenated, younger-looking appearance. Every face is unique, and aging effects everyone’s face differently, therefore the exact methods, techniques, and combination of procedures could vary patient to patient. Some patients choose to combine facelift in NY with other procedures, such as chin implants in NYC, facial implants in NY, or facial liposuction in New York to achieve overall facial rejuvenation. Dr. Darrick E. Antell will discuss the options available to each patient during their personal consultation. Facelift in New York City usually takes several hours, unless additional procedures are added.  Most patients will only need local anesthesia combined with intravenous sedation similar to a colonoscopy.  This is also called “twilight sleep.” During facelift in NYC, patients will breathe on their own, but they will be relaxed and not aware of anything due to the “twilight sleep”.   At the end of the procedure, long acting local anesthesia is administered to the area, making the affected area of the face completely numb for many hours.  In this way, Dr. Antell can ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible throughout the recovery period. Most people will only take Tylenol in order to moderate pain after surgery.

After your facelift in NY, your face may swell or bruise, but patients typically return to work ten days to two weeks following surgery.  Incisions from facelift in NYC  are meticulously sutured and can be hidden until they fade. Once healed, scars will be inconspicuous. Facelift in New York City won’t stop the aging process, but it can rewind it back a few years. Patients should aim for improvement, not perfection, in their appearance after facelift in NY.

In addition to giving your love and gifts this Valentine’s Day, consider a little something for yourself, facelift in New York, so when your love leans in close next Valentine’s Day, meet them halfway, confident in your skin.  Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S.  and his staff encourage patients to voice any questions or concerns you may have about facelift in NYC.  With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Antell and his staff are known for this particular type of work and have operated on some of the most prominent people in America, including some of the best known anchorwomen and anchormen in the world. You may contact his New York, NY office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Antell.

Make Fat a Thing of the Past with Liposuction in NYC

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2012 AT 12:33 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Liposuction

Leave the excess fat and self-conscious doubts about your body behind in 2011. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S. offers liposuction in New York City as a viable solution for patients already in good medical health, but unable to shed excess fat in pesky problem areas, such as the chin, neck, cheeks, upper arms, love handles, abdomen, breasts, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves, and ankles. Liposuction in NY is a body sculpting procedure. Ideal candidates already lead healthy lifestyles and engage in balanced diets, exercise regularly, and have relatively good skin elasticity. Those with sagging skin may receive liposuction in NYC, but they may also need additional surgical procedures, such as a post-bariatric body lift in NY, to minimize the sagging skin without which the contours that liposuction provides may not be as noticeable. Liposuction in New York can help you achieve the smoother, contoured body you’ve been working towards, but haven’t been able to make a reality.

Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S.  performs liposuction in New York using local anesthesia combined with a sedative to ensure patients are comfortable during the procedure. Dr. Antell will discuss preparation for the procedure, the procedure itself, and realistic expectations during your consultation for liposuction in NYC.  Looking forward to realistic goals and body improvement, instead of perfection, is key to attaining satisfying, lasting results.  Liposuction in NY improves contours, so if you have a bulge on the side of your hips, for example, it can be reduced. Excess fat and sagging skin can be frustrating to look at every day, especially when your daily efforts of eating healthy and exercising regularly seem to have no effect on the problem areas you most want improved. Dr. Darrick Antell performs Liposuction in New York City to help patients achieve the improvement and self-satisfaction with their bodies that diet and exercise haven’t been able to effect.

Male liposuction

During liposuction in New York City, Dr. Antell removes excess fat from stubborn problem areas resistant to diet and exercise. A very small incision is made to provide the cannula access to the fat layer.  Dilute local anesthetic is then placed into the fatty layer and allowed to take effect.  Tiny tunnels are made with the cannula, and fatty tissue is suctioned out.  All surgery involves some level of risk and recovery, but Dr. Antell and his staff with over 20 years of experience, provide the highest level of care available to ensure the best possible experience, and once healed, the best possible results.  Dr. Antell’s private operating room which he uses for all his procedures, including liposuction in NY, is fully accredited and registered with New York State.

Female liposuction

Let Dr. Antell contribute to your self-improvement and satisfaction both physically and emotionally as you move forward from 2011 and into the New Year with a whole new look. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C. S. and his staff welcome any questions or concerns you may have about liposuction in New York. You may contact his New York, NY office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Antell.
