Tummy Tuck vs Liposuction

January 8th, 2016

How do you decide if you need a tummy tuck? Liposuction? or both? This is a common question regarding abdominal body contouring. In general if you have a lot of excess skin, a tummy tuck is probably your best option. On the other hand if you your skin elasticity is good with not much excess, liposuction may be the answer. Lipoabdominoplasty is the combination of liposuction with a tummy tuck in the same operation. Usually the liposuction is performed towards the sides of the belly and not very aggressively if at all in the midline region.

The changing technique with Facial Fillers | Injectibles

Filler Injectible to Nasolabial Fold Restylane by LA Beverly Hills Trained Award Winning Dr Philip Young

Filler Injectible to Nasolabial Fold Restylane by LA Beverly Hills Trained Award Winning Dr Philip Young

Fillers and an interesting story: Aging is due to volume loss. At least a big part is played by the volume we lose everyday. Fillers | Injectibles are a great way to keep the volume subtly over time. But learning where to put it makes a big difference. I ve been noticing more over the years that doctors are putting fillers too much in the front of the face. This is a natural approach given that’s where you see it. But a big part of making you look younger is avoiding placing the filler right in the folds or wrinkles and more around the area and areas that you wouldn’t expect. Recently I saw a person that had an allergic reaction to fillers after a treatment by another doctor.  She didn’t look right but most doctors didn’t know what it was. I thought that her reaction might have been a neurological reaction to her emotional response or deep part of her brains response to what was happening.  She had been feeling a lot of anxiety since she started to have fillers. Her conscious mind couldn’t put it together but her emotional deep part of her brain was putting it together. I could sense her anxiety. I had a plan for her. I dissolved much of her fillers and did a whole face rejuvenation with fat injections. Since then she has been feeling a lot better. The last time I saw her, I could sense that her level of anxiety was really improved and she was looking and feeling a lot better as well.

Today is the First Day of the rest of My Life

October 17th, 2015

Aside from Facial Plastic Surgery, if there is anyone reading this. I think this quote or thought really helps me at times “Today is the First Day of the rest of My Life”. Now is the time to make changes in your life. It is said that you need to change something in the way that you are doing things 28 times before it starts to set in. Simply put, it is hard to change.  I use this to help me think of positive changes that I want in my life and to live life to the fullest!

Some of the books that I’ve been reading lately has helped in this.  Happiness by Mathieu Ricard; Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey; The Alchemist by by Paulo Coelho; Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman; Emotiona lntelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry, Jean Greaves; Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus by John Gray; The Seven Spiritual Law of Success by Deepak Chopra; How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie have been some of the major influences lately.

I would love to have you read them and contact me to let me know what you think at dryoung(at)drphilipyoung.com

Acne Scar Surgery Dr. Philip Young Review Testimonial

October 17th, 2015
This is what Yoojin Kim said about Dr. Philip Young MD, Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery PLLC
5 Stars
“Great experience. I had some deep scars from acne but now after a scar surgery, my over all skin texture is more smooth. I made a right choice.”
We have a unique approach to Acne Scar Treatment called the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. It is a multilayered approach to acne scarring which is a multilayered disease process. The hair follicle extends deeply into the skin. Hence you have to treat all the layers to reverse the scar to the best that you are capable. It involves lasering the surface and stimulating the deeper layers to rise from being a depressed scar. It is based on surgical experience of over 15 years after Dr. Young graduated from medical school in 1999.

Fat Grafting Transfer Question and Answer Session from a recent Patient

May 28th, 2015

Question 1. What are the chances of the fat grafting transfer leaving uneven lumps on patient’s face based on your experience?

Answer: This is pretty rare. It comprises about 30% of our practice or more and we get this about 1-2% if that. It is due to our process of placing fat. We use very small amounts with each passing. For example a cc of fat we will go back and forth with the cannula about 10-20 times.

Question 2. Do you centrifuged/purified the harvested fat cells prior to injecting into the face? I understand this is the standard approach to isolated whole and undamaged fat cells for transfer.
Step One: harvest
Step Two: purify/centrifuge to:
(i) isolate out dead cells/excess fluids, and
(ii) retain Adipose Stem Cells – ASC
Step Three: inject/transfer

Answer: We have tested different speeds and have found the best speed for survival. We have done many different approaches. The standard 3000 rpm, letting the fat sit to separate, harvesting all at once versus staggered, using different cannulas.Based on this we have come up with the best ways to get the best survival.
Question 3. Previously, I had tummy tuck/lipo around torso/abdomen about 7 years ago. I’ve been told that fat cells do not grow back. If the patient gains weight, then the remaining fat cells will grow bigger. Is this true? If so, will the fat cells harvested from my sides/hips be optimal for injection into the face? More importantly, any concerns about scar cells being harvested?

Answer: I don’t typically prefer fat from sites that have had liposuctioning unless those  are the only areas left.

Question 4. What method/tools do you use to collect undamaged and healthy fat cells? use very low suction liposuction? use small gauge hypodermic needle or special cannula?

Answer: I use small 10cc syringes with hand pressure.

Question 5. On average, do people do a second fat transfer 10-15 years as refresher? Just want to set my own personal future expectation :)

Answer:  This depends. You’ll always look better than a twin that didn’t get it done.

Question 6. As a matter of comparison, which procedure do you as a surgeon find easier to perform? Asian Blespharoplasty vs. Facial Fat Transfer?

Answer:  Fat transfer for sure.

Question 7. Also, which procedure do you see your patients recover easier/faster from? Asian Belspharoplasty vs. Facial Fat Transfer?

Answer: This depends on extent of fat transfer and the area.

Question 8. In your experience, what are patients biggest complaint post-op? bruising? swelling? On average, when do most of the bruising/swelling subside by?

Answer: I would say probably bruising and swelling. Most of it goes away at 1 week. However everybody’s perceptions are different.

My biggest concerns are the following:
a) uneven/lumpiness

Answer: This is rare
b) overfilling/chipmunk look

Answer: you can always reduce the fat. This is rare. Most people want more fat and the biggest risk is less fat survival.

I want to look refreshed and natural with the procedure. These two goals are super important to me. Thanks! :) . okay!!
