The Balance of Beauty with Chin Implants in NYC

POSTED ON THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2013 AT 5:01 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Beautiful blond woman with a chin implant in NYCMany 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.

Enhance Your Look, Enhance Your Life With Earlobe Repair, Mole Removal, & Scar Revision Surgery in NYC!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2013 AT 10:13 AM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Earlobe repair 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.

Prepare Your Body For Summer With Breast Lift in NYC

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 AT 12:12 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Breast lift SurgeryHappy Spring from the office of Dr. Antell!  Feel beautiful in your body this season with a Breast Lift in NYC! Spring reminds us of warmer days ahead, so get a head start and prepare your feminine figure with a fuller, younger-looking curves in time for Summer! 

Flaunting beautiful curves helps women regain confidence with their femininity while re-discovering their youth! In fact, breasts that sag are one of the most prominent indicators of your age. Although today’s wonder bra can provide a temporary solution to sagging breasts, a more permanent solution resides at the office of NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell. Dr. Antell offers breast lift in New York City to raise and reshape your breasts.   

Many factors lead to the drooping and sagging of breasts, including pregnancy, nursing, age, weight loss, and gravity. While most women experience lost fullness in their breasts during their 30’s, curves of an aging chest can potentially sag much sooner depending on lifestyle choices and how early in life you experience your first newborn.

During the breast lift procedure, also known as Mastopexy, the breasts and areola are shifted to a higher position. A lollipop incision is performed, so afterwards, the skin surrounding the areola is brought around and together to reshape the breast. Additionally, the veins, arteries, lymph vessels, nerves and the milk duct remain attached to the nipple in order to ensure functioning in the future. In addition to lifting the breasts, patients may choose to opt for breast augmentation surgery.

If patients choose to have breast enhancement in conjunction with breast lift, Dr. Antell will place either silicone or saline implants in a pocket directly under the breast tissue or under the muscle of the chest wall. Dr. Antell generally performs sub muscular breast augmentations.

Traditionally, implants are placed above the muscle and underneath the breast glands. During sub muscular breast augmentation in NYC, Dr. Antell will place the chosen implant underneath the pectoralis muscle of the chest. By choosing to place the implants here, the breast will have a more natural look and feel. Additionally, patients will be less likely to encounter rippling of the breast. Breast implants in conjunction with Mastopexy can increase both fullness and size.

Celebrate your body and re-discover your curves this spring! Dr. Antell and our staff welcome any questions you may have about breast lift in NYC. Contact us at 212.988.4040, or you may request an appointment online for your personal consultation today!

Reverse Summer Skin Damage with Laser Skin Resurfacing in NYC

POSTED ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 AT 12:05 PM by Dr. Darrick Antell

Laser skin resurfacingDuring the blistery winter months, many of us try our best to keep our skin hydrated and smooth. Fighting against Mother Nature’s coldest breathes, we pile on lotions and creams to combat peeling skin and rosy cheeks of blemishes caused by wind damage. In addition to the dry air of the frosty season that keeps our skin fighting to maintain a beautiful appearance, winter is a prime time for past damage from the warmest season of the year to start appearing. In fact, summer skin damage compounded by the cold air and dry heat can cause a more severe flare up in the winter. Luckily, you can treat your sun-damaged skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing in NYC.  

During Laser Skin Resurfacing, Dr. Antell will use a beam of laser energy to carefully remove each layer of damaged skin. This laser beam simultaneously heats the underlying skin, stimulating growth of new collagen fibers. During the healing process, new skin cells will form, resulting in smoother, tighter, and younger looking skin. As an alternative, and depending on your skin type, Dr. Antell may recommend a chemical peel, which can often be more controlled than a laser and yield better results.  There are a variety of peels available from mild, moderate and deep.  In most cases, a moderate peel is chosen. Again, Dr. Antell must evaluate your skin as an initial step.

Laser Skin Resurfacing at our NYC office can treat both surface and deeper leveled skin damage. For mild resurfacing, the laser can be limited to the epidermis and papillary dermis. For deeper resurfacing, the upper levels of the reticular dermis, also known as the lower layer of skin can be removed. Depending on your level of skin damage will determine which method of Laser Skin Resurfacing is best for you.

Laser Skin Resurfacing can improve the appearance of:  

  • Fine lines & wrinkles of the face
  • Acne scarring
  • Age or sun spots
  • Warts
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Birthmarks

During your treatment, you will be placed under local anesthesia. Dr. Antell will often prefer to use “twilight” anesthesia, so patients feel as if they are falling asleep naturally.

Look your best year round, and let your skin outshine the dreary winter days with Laser Skin Resurfacing! Dr. Antell and his staff welcome any questions you may have about Laser Skin Resurfacing in NYC. Contact our New York City office at 212.988.4040, or request an appointment online for your personal consultation with Dr. Antell.
