Facial Rejuvenation for a More Youthful Appearance – Dr. Brian Evans

As we age our skin becomes more tires in its appearance and this will often show our age more clearly than anything else about our appearance. When you are trying to achieve a more youthful look, it is in your best interest to find a facial rejuvenation product that will bring your skin back to life and give the impression of youth and vitality.

 

Take a look at some of the ingredients that are available to help your skin look and feel better. The texture of your skin will also change with age and you will need a good product that delivers moisture to your skin and helps to eliminate the dead skin cells at the same time. Moisture is one of the most important parts of a high quality skin care routine. You must keep your skin well moisturized to avoid the effects that will result on the skin when it is allowed to remain too dry. Wrinkles and the fine lines that are associated with age are more prevalent when the skin is dry than when it is kept well moisturized.

 

Caring for your skin will require you to look in a variety of different areas. Your skincare routine is the first area where you will want to begin your work. Make sure that you have a good skincare routine that you follow with consistency. You should have a good method for cleaning the skin and keeping it well moisturized. A skincare routine is only good if you are using it. Filling your shelves with expensive products will not help with facial rejuvenation if you don’t use the products.

 

Make sure that you are following a good routine and keeping your skin clean, free of dead cells and well moisturized. You should also look to add some of the more intensive treatments to your routine as your skin ages. There are some wonderful products on the market that can provide you with very good skin conditioning if you do some research on the right ingredients. Check to be sure that your facial rejuvenation products contain these ingredients in the right quantities to make sure that you are actually providing a benefit to your skin.

 

Next, your facial rejuvenation plan will need to include a healthy well balanced diet. Your skin is an organ and will need to be given the right nutrition to function in the best possible way. Make sure that your diet is balanced first and also includes foods that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. It is also important that you drink plenty of water every day to provide your body with the proper hydration. Facial rejuvenation must have a healthy body to produce good results.

 

Finally, do some investigation on your own about how the skin works and the recent developments in skincare. Many times we are only left with the advertisements that we see for skincare products to give us information about ingredients. This is not the best way to learn about your skin. The ads are designed to sell the product to you and you will need more unbiased information than this to make good choices in your facial rejuvenation treatments.

Get Rid Of Acne Once And For All – Contact Brian Evans Plastic Surgery

Skincare products only reach the surface of the skin, and cannot always change the skin’s behavior. You may be able to shrink pores and reduce inflammation temporarily, but if you have severe acne, the problem lies deeper within the skin’s surface.

Fortunately, there are several treatments and plastic surgery procedures that can help treat acne and improve your skin’s texture, contact Brian Evans Plastic Surgery for more details. These treatments include photofacials, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery center facility will help you choose the right acne treatment for your skin. acne

ACNE SURGERY: This treatment method really speeds up acne clearing and appearance by manually getting rid of blackheads and whiteheads. A round loop extractor is used to apply uniform smooth pressure to dislodge the material. Lesions that offer resistance are loosened by inserting a pointed instrument to carefully expose the contents.

INTRALESIONAL CORTICOSTEROID THERAPY: If one or a number of painful acne cysts develop, instant relief is on hand with this very painless treatment procedure. Each cyst is given a single injection of a dilute cortisone solution, using an ultrathin needle.
Laser and light therapy. Laser- and light-based therapies reach the deeper layers of skin without harming the skin’s surface. Laser treatment is thought to damage the oil (sebaceous) glands, causing them to produce less oil. Light therapy targets the bacterium that causes acne inflammation. These therapies may also enhance skin texture and decrease the appearance of scars, so they may be good treatment choices for people with both active acne and acne scars.

Dermatologists will make use of very aggressive treatment methods to try to stop the progression of serious acne. They will try to stop it in its tracks while at the same time, work to prevent permanent scarring.

Oral antibiotics and medications such as accutane, may be used at this stage as well as drainage techniques and surgical incision, also known as Acne Surgery. Other acne treatment methods like injections of corticosteriods can be utilized.
Melting away cysts over a number of days is what this is mainly used for. The acne therapy selected by your doctor will be matched to the seriousness of the condition affecting your skin.

 

Acne laser treatment for scars
Acne laser treatment has also been tried recently in a related form of skin disease called Acne Inversa, caused by sweat gland inflammation. This chronic disease is identified by inflamed abscesses inside the groin and underarms, and rarely on the scalp. The normal acne treatment of oral antibiotics usually assist you by controlling the condition, but the scarring left by the abscesses can be severe enough to limit movement, and is not always helped by cortisone injections. Acne laser treatment may offer a less invasive treatment than full surgery, and together with other acne medications such as Isotretinion, acne scars may be a thing of the past for these patients.

 

Acne Treatment Guide
Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion
This includes the application of an efoliate, like glycolic acid, to the affected areas. Sometimes, microdermabrasion is used as an alternative. The result is the peeling off of the top skin layers that opens comedones, and since the pores are no longer clogged, acne is eliminated.

If you’re frustrated with acne products, consider contacting Dr. Brian Evans to get your acne under control.

Forehead Lift

Forehead Lift and Brow Lift Surgery @ Dr. Brian Evans

Plastic surgery has become more and more a staple of our culture in the United States. We see it in the celebrities we watch in movies and on TV. We even see TV shows dedicated to plastic surgery, such as Nip/Tuck. The popularity of these cosmetic surgeries has surged into the twenty-first century and at the fore-front of this wave is the ever-popular face or forehead lift. Forehead Lift

People who have deep frown lines or worry lines across their forehead can use a number of different cosmetic procedures. One that can be done is a brow lift or forehead lift. In this procedure, the skin of the forehead is literally lifted, making the eyebrows higher and tightening the skin. The result can be a younger looking face. But there can be complications as well, so it is essential to do your research if you are considering this.

 

During a brow lift, your hair will be tied back, and may be trimmed at the hairline. The incisions are made either in front of the hairline or at the temples. In a conventional forehead lift, excess skin is removed, and what remains is lifted, and then sutured into place. A brow lift can also be done endoscopically, using a thin tube with a tiny camera attached to it. This camera is inserted under the skin, so the surgeon can watch what is going on during the procedure without making as large an incision.

 

The typical candidate for a forehead lift is a man or woman over the age of 40, who has drooping eyebrows, sagging skin on the forehead, or a lot of deep wrinkles on the forehead. A brow lift can help enhance the appearance, making the eyes look larger and the face look younger. But there are risks to consider. Potential complications include infection and nerve damage. This is also done under anesthesia, so there is that to consider.

It’s also important that after a brow lift, you try to minimize scowling, frowning or furrowing your brow. These are the facial expressions that created the problem in the first place, and they can un-do the changes made by your cosmetic surgery.

Facelift for a young pretty woman, isolated, white background

Getting the Best Facelift – Visit Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery

A facelift is designed to reverse the visible effects of aging by eliminating excess skin and tightening the muscles of the face and neck. With a facelift, skin that has lost its elasticity can be lifted to reveal new facial contour, and tightened to create a fresh, rested appearance.

Not all faces begin to show signs of age at the same rate. Heredity, environmental and lifestyle factors have a large effect on our facial appearance, as we grow older.
However, starting at around age forty, most faces begin to undergo a change. Features begin to sag as the muscles become weaker and the skin less elastic. Wrinkles and lines begin to form, becoming more apparent on the forehead, near the eyes and around the mouth and neck. The jaw line can disappear into an excess of fat, and droopy skin.

 

The most effective way to reverse these obvious signs of aging is with a facelift (Rhytidectomy). At Brian Evans Plastic Surgery West Hills Hosptial & Medical center practice, we believe a facelift can provide some of the most dramatic, comprehensive results that plastic surgery has to offer.
Facelift Surgery
Facelift surgery is designed to treat the face as a whole.
During a facelift, the skin and underlying musculature are tightened; excess skin and fat are removed. A facelift involves making incisions around the jaw, hairline, or ears to pull back and tighten the facial skin.
The whole face is, in essence, lifted, smoothed, and made more youthful-looking.
In certain situations, an additional procedure, such as rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time as the facelift.
Facelifts come in several types, based on the extent of work being done: the Mini Facelift, the Mid-face Lift, and the Traditional Facelift.

 

Mini Facelift
The Mini Facelift is sometimes called the “weekend facelift” because the procedure is relatively short and less invasive than the other two types of facelifts.
During a mini facelift, only specific areas will be targeted, not the face as a whole. Your surgeon may address the neck and jowl area (mini neck lift), or concentrate on the part of the face that includes the cheeks and lower eyelids (mini facelift).
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis, often under local anesthesia and takes from one to two hours.

 

Mid-Face Lift
A mid-face lift refreshes the area of the face between the upper lip and the lower eyelid, improving deep smile lines and sagginess of the cheeks.
As we get older, the fatty tissue that drapes over the cheekbones can begin to drop and sag. The cheekbones become less prominent as the cheek fat gives in to gravity’s pull. This can also accentuate any bagginess of the lower eyelids.
Frequently a mid-face lift is done in conjunction with another cosmetic surgery procedure, such as lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or a rhinoplasty.
Mid-face lift surgery is normally performed on an outpatient basis.
A mid-face lift is a shorter operation than a full facelift and has a faster recovery time.

 

The Traditional Facelift
The traditional facelift addresses the face as a whole, from brow to chin, including jowl line and neck.
Some of the problems a traditional facelift addresses are:
• Mid-face sagging in the area of the cheeks
• Deep creases along the sides of the nose extending down to the corners of the mouth
• Creases, puffiness or “bags” below the lower eyelids
• Loss of tone with drooping fat and skin around the jaw line

The healing and recovery period from a full facelift can be from a week to several weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and the response of the individual patient. Most patients can return to non-physically strenuous work within ten days to two weeks.
You will have follow-up appointments with your surgeon to check the progress of your healing.

Body Contouring

Achieve the Body You Desire with Body Contouring by Brian Evans Plastic Surgery

There are several body contouring plastic surgery procedures out there but the main three, and probably most known are liposuction, abdominoplasty, and the contouring of the body after massive weight loss. It is important to remember that no cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure is able to simply get rid of your unwanted body fat. All body contouring plastic surgery procedures are designed to assist you in getting the body you desire. The assistance can be a great help, but you need to lose your unwanted weight before you receive any body contouring plastic surgery procedure. Only a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon can give you the results you desire.

Body Contouring

Liposuction is a procedure that removes localized areas of excess fatty tissue. Liposuction can be performed on many area of the body to include: face, neck, chest, abdomen, back, arms, hips, and legs. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but rather a body contouring procedure. It is designed to address those areas of fatty tissue that are resistant to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate is at or near their ideal body weight and in good physical condition. Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery a Board Certified Plastic Surgeons uses the tumescent technique when performing liposuction. Brian Evans MD will help you determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction during your consultation.

 

Abdominoplasty is a procedure designed to contour the abdomen. This is accomplished by removing excess skin and fat as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, and the best results are achieved in those patients who are at or near their ideal body weight. Ideal candidates are those who have had children or lost a significant amount of weight and are in good physical condition. The technique used depends on several variables that will be discussed with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon during your consultation.

 

Body contouring after weight loss is designed to address the excess skin that develops after a patient loses a significant amount of weight. Despite the weight loss and exercise, the stretched out skin often will not shrink back adequately. This can lead to difficulties with exercising, finding clothes that fit properly, hygiene and discouragement that the transformation is not complete. Areas of the body that are often addressed during body contouring after weight loss include: abdomen, arms, buttock, and thighs. Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery will discuss the different options that are available during your consultation.

 

Here are a few plastic surgery procedures Dr Evans specializes in:

  • Rhinoplasty (nose job)
  • Facelift
  • Blepharoplasty (eye lift)
  • Butt lift
  • Breast augmentation (breast enhancement, enlargement, or reduction)
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction

Breast Implants

Breast Implants – Consult Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery

So you want to get breast implants. Whether it was a difficult decision or a no-brainer, you’ve got more choices to make related to the actual procedure, California, to explain. Here are the four basic — but critical — decisions explained by Dr. Brian Evans (An Experienced Plastic Surgeon) you need to make when you choose to have breast implant surgery.

 

01. SALINE OR SILICONE?

Supports the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) position that silicone gel-filled implants offer a more natural feel than saline implants. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. To this point he adds, “… saline implants sometimes form ripples, like the ridges of an old-fashioned washboard, which can be felt — or even seen under the skin. This is mainly a concern for thin and small-breasted women.” He adds that this occurrence is less noticeable in women who have a fair amount of breast or fatty tissue to begin with.

The difference

The main disadvantage of silicone implants is that it’s harder to detect when an implant breaks — “whereas a saline-filled implant leak is readily apparent by virtue of loss of volume in the breast. That’s why, the FDA recommends that women with silicone implants have an MRI examination three years post-implantation and every two years thereafter.

 

2. SIZE AND SHAPE

Decision on size includes various factors that are, in part, determined by a woman’s “tissue characteristics,” including how much stretch she has in her skin, the width of her chest, and the amount of fatty tissue she has under the skin.

Tissue characteristics certainly play a role, many plastic surgeons, myself included, feel that the patient’s desire regarding size is far and away the most important consideration. If a woman desires large implants, and she understands the implications of such, in terms of the long-term effects on her breasts, then size should be her personal decision.”

 

Shape, Dr. Brian Evans MD explains, is determined to a large extent by the inherent form of the breasts. But, he adds, “Shape can also be influenced by implant dimension: Implants of an identical size can result in a different appearance, depending on whether her doctor uses high-profile implants (narrow but producing significant projection) versus low-profile implants (wider but with less projection.)” He also adds that breast lift (mastopexy) can significantly reshape breasts that sag.

 

03. LOCATION

Breast implants can be placed over or under the chest (pectoralis major) muscle. According to, over-the-muscle placement results in less pain, while under-the-muscle placement offers less interference with mammograms, less chance of being able to feel the implant, better long-term support, and perhaps less chance of capsular contracture, the most common complication of breast augmentation surgery, which distorts the appearance of the breast. Dr. Brian Evans adds that “there is also a further distinction between a complete and partial approach with the sub-muscular method.” Ultimately, choosing the appropriate implant location, he points out, is a decision best made between you and your surgeon, based on advantages and disadvantages of each approach, relevant to your personal anatomy.

 

4. INCISION TECHNIQUE

Fact

According to Dr. Brian Evans MD, there are four main options for incision placement in breast augmentation: Under the breast (inframammary), around the nipple (periareolar), through the armpit (transaxillary) and through the belly button (transumbilical). Each incision method has its advantages and disadvantages.

 

If the incision goes under the breast or around the nipple, your doctor can directly see the pocket for the implant as it’s created, which maximizes the chance for proper implant positioning. If subsequent operation becomes necessary, the same incision can be re-used. However, while the incision is well-hidden around the nipple, it is more apparent under the breast. If your incision goes through the armpit, it may be well-hidden, but other challenges present themselves. It’s harder to place the implant properly, it’s difficult to insert a silicone implant of any size and there’s a small risk of damaging nerves traveling to arms. And finally, an incisional approach through the belly button has multiple limitations. Not only is it impossible to insert silicone implants with this approach, but placement from this larger distance is difficult and subsequent procedures require one of the other incisions.

 

Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery at West Hills Hosptial & Medical center features several breast augmentation procedures to choose from, including breast implants, breast lift, or breast reduction. Dr. Brian Evans uses only the safest techniques and materials during breast augmentation surgery, and all of our breast enhancement procedures are performed within a safe, certified operating facility.
