Honoring Your Real Self
Fighting the Hollywood Cosmetic Surgery Stigma
While cosmetic procedures are slowly becoming more common and socially acceptable, there is still a major stigma attached to it. For some, the term plastic surgery evokes images of overfilled or frozen faces, Hollywood celebs that have gone overboard (Michael Jackson, among others), duck lips and the list goes on. Unfortunately, these are the stories and images that gain the most media attention, thus giving the industry a bad rep. However, the best representations for cosmetic surgery are the ones that go unnoticed; those patients (and celebs) that defy age and continue to look amazing into their 40’s, 50’s and beyond.
Los Angeles Cosmetic Procedures – Less is More
Stefanie Paige is our nurse at Westside Aesthetics and has built her Los Angeles cosmetic procedures business on her philosophy that less is more. She has been in the business for over 20 years and strives to make her clients look natural and youthful, without changing their inherent looks. She believes that the best tactic is to use a combination of treatments and always begins by educating the patient. Stefanie works with over 10 different lasers that treat conditions such as lines and wrinkles, sunspots, rosacea, large pores, acne scarring, spider veins, and other issues. She takes into consideration the patient’s skin type, age, lifestyle, genetics and past history to provide the most effective treatment schedule. She also uses many different dermal fillers that look very natural when injected correctly.
Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgery Wisdom: Stay True to Yourself
There is a difference between augmenting and rejuvenating. As we age, we lose volume in the form of bone, fat and muscle tissue. Injectable fillers are the perfect way to address volume loss. The problem arises when clients want to change their appearance by augmenting or overfilling. For instance, as we age, our lips lose volume and can be naturally restored to a youthful appearance with injectable filler. The same goes for other areas, such as cheeks and eyes. Unfortunately, many people want to change the way they look altogether, which is more likely to result in an unnatural and overfilled, stretched appearance. If a patient comes in with thin lips and an obsession with looking like Angelina Jolie, then that is when the issues come up.
All of the practitioners at Westside Aesthetics, a leading Beverly Hills cosmetic procedures clinic, operate under the same philosophy that less is more. In this facility, we emphasize the importance no one notice that you have had cosmetic enhancements or aesthetic procedures. We want our patients to look refreshed and rejuvenated, but the last thing we want is for friends and family to notice any extreme changes to their natural appearance.
