As people get older, they start to notice a number of changes in their face. The skin starts to sag, the cheeks loose projection, lips lose volume, and wrinkles appear.

A strong jaw line conveys strength, confidence, and youthfulness. It is no wonder so many Americans want one. Over 80 percent of patients surveyed say they'd like to eliminate some of the fat beneath their chins and give themselves a better defined neck. It's not as easy as it sounds.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons more than 620,000 patients received IPL treatments in 2014.
Did you know that as you age, your face not only droops, but also deflates? Many plastic surgeons recommend repositioning fat for rejuvenation of an aging face. However, it is possible that volume replacement may also be necessary to achieve the best possible results.
Your breasts may not appear exactly as you imagined right after breast augmentation. It takes several months for your breasts to fully heal following surgery. You may notice that your new breasts appear to rest too high on your chest. However, as they heal, your breasts will settle or ‘drop’ into place. You may wonder, how long does it take for breast implants to drop?
