1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad – What you should know about non-surgical (injectable) rhinoplasty

Share Us On:



1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad What you should know about non-surgical (injectable) rhinoplasty Many doctors (not nasal surgeons) offer patients requiring small correction of nasal deformities injections of tissue fillers. Naturally such treatment is not available for patients who require reduction of nasal size. For those that choose non-surgical rhinoplasty, the effect is temporary. As well, in cases where surgical intervention is eventually sought for a permanent result, injectable fillers may cause a disadvantage. This is because tissue fillers can stimulate collagen formation, which can make surgery more problematic. Prior to considering a non-surgical rhinoplasty, it is a good idea to consult a reputable nasal surgeon to learn about the broadest possible range of options.

1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad – What you need to know about Injectable Fillers + Botox

Share Us On:



1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad What you need to know about injectable fillers + Botox People frequently confuse injectables such as Botox with other injectables. Botox in cosmetic procedures is used to immobilize certain facial muscles. Facial muscles produce wrinkles. Botox prevents these muscles from moving and, in some instances, from expressing negative emotions such as frowning. Generally, what Botox does is to smooth the parts of the face that are not essential for facial expression. It results in a rested and happier appearance. The effects lasts from 4-6 months and are limited strictly to the area where it was injected. Regular use of Botox injections prevents formation, and worsening, of facial wrinkles. Injectable fillers, on the other hand, are used to lift folds or improve contour. They are applied to the areas of the face which thin out with aging such as lips, cheeks, chin, and under…

1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad – What do most individuals desire in their Rhinoplasty result?

1 on 1 with Dr. Kris Conrad What do most individuals desire in their rhinoplasty result? Aesthetic preferences in rhinoplasty Research has shown that smaller, well-defined noses are preferred by the vast majority of females and, in many cases, by males as well. Such outcomes require the utmost of surgical skill and artistic ability on the part of the surgeon. Contrary to frequently expressed views, a nose does not have to make a statement because of its size. A smaller nose is almost universally preferred and can be achieved, notwithstanding individual physical limitations. Either way, gender identity can and should be preserved. In addition, the aim is to attain a natural look or appearance while improving nasal breathing function. A well-shaped and proportioned nose will look good regardless of ethnicity. Such goals can be achieved by an experienced, specialist surgeon.

What you should know about lower facial rejuvenation

Share Us On:



Lower facial rejuvenation involves corrections of the neck, lower face and mid face. Patients often arrive in my office with concerns about sagging of the neck tissue and fullness under the chin. For fullness of the chin, if it occurs in younger individuals (often diet and exercise-resistant) with good skin elasticity, correction can be carried out through liposuction or direct fat excision surgery. The resulting scar is well hidden in the shadow of the jaw and not easily detectable. The recovery for this procedure takes about two weeks and the patient wears a supportive dressing. Recently, injections with fat dissolving medication have been introduced. Although it may be effective, this treatment has not been around long enough to judge its effectiveness over the long term. For cases of fullness under the chin in older individuals, it is usually associated in changes in the lower face and such corrections are best…

Looking tired? What you need to know about cosmetic corrections to the upper face

Share Us On:



There are two approaches to rejuvenating the upper face: non-surgical and surgical. A non-surgical approach involves skin resurfacing, botox injections, and injection of fillers or platelet rich plasma. A non-surgical approach can camouflage loss of subcutaneous tissue volume, temporarily reduce wrinkles, and improve the surface of the skin. However, this approach has limitations when it comes to correcting sagging skin. When the aging process has advanced to the point that significant reshaping of the eyebrows and forehead, together with removal of bags under the eyes is desired, surgical methods are safest and the most effective. Surgery is more effective because it creates the largest, permanent improvement. Ideally, a patient seeking rejuvenation for the upper face should consider a specialist offering surgical and non-surgical solutions in order to obtain the best result. In patients with marked hooding of the upper eyelids and deeply seated eyes, the most beneficial correction will reposition…
