What is the Best Age to Get a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, more commonly known as a boob job, remains a top cosmetic surgery in 2024 because of its ability to empower women to achieve their desired body image. But the question of the ‘right age’ often lingers due to common misconceptions and societal pressures. There is no best age to get breast implants - instead, the answer lies in your personal journey fueled by unique needs and goals. So, let's ditch the age myth and explore the factors that truly ...

We all want to look and feel our best, especially as the years go by.

Learn about how Sculptra® helps stimulate collagen

by Leslie Nutkis
Oct. 24, 2023, 2:22 p.m.

If you’re worried about aging skin and elasticity, you should be thinking about collagen. For a treatment that utilizes and builds collagen, I’ve discovered some amazing facts about Sculptra®. It builds and sculpts your face non-surgically, and though results aren’t immediate, it achieves natural looking results.

Collagen stimulation can occur in response to injury when the tissue breaks down and repairs itself, which we see after laser, chemical peels or microneedling or in response to a biostimulatory product like Sculptra® which triggers a controlled inflammatory response that stimulates cells ...

Remembering my friend

by Leslie Nutkis
Oct. 5, 2023, 3:17 p.m.

Sophia was my best friend and I will always remember how hard she fought to survive breast cancer. She was incredibly brave during her four year battle against it. When she passed away in 2012 she left behind her family, a loving husband and 2 beautiful daughters. 

Thankfully, since then, there have been many advances in treating breast cancer. As we know, the fight begins with early detection. Firstly, the importance of performing proper breast self-exams is vital. Get to know your breasts at an early age and ...

I wasn’t looking for smaller pores, but somehow they found me. After starting my new job with NCPS 8 weeks ago, skincare has become a big topic of conversation in my life. My friends and family all want to know what I did to get my new glow. 

The ZO® skin health products I’ve been using daily have given me brighter skin, plus the natural hydration my skin was so desperately craving. Since I’ve always had good skin, it had been easy enough to get away with using ...

by Leslie Nutkis
Aug. 22, 2023, 11:22 a.m.

Yesterday, I had a chance to try a new laser technique to help with a problem on my legs. Spider veins. After pregnancy, I started developing little red lines near my knees and they’ve gotten worse over the years.

Since I rarely take time for myself for treatments, I hide my legs every summer. As it turns out, there was a simple, easy and painless solution to these pesky lines.

After putting on protective glasses, I was ready. Dr. C carefully measured the veins and evaluated 3 different areas for ...

We hope everyone is enjoying some vacation time with their families!

Some exciting news - our office is introducing an alternative to Botox soon with a new treatment called Daxxify. It is a neurotoxin treatment similar to Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin in the way it relaxes the injected muscle.

But, because Daxxify has a different formulation, it has an extended effect on your muscles and can last many more months than other treatments.

That means more time between treatments. You may hear about it referred to as ...

by Aaron Capuano, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Oct. 28, 2020, 9:41 a.m.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of breast self exams, annual check-ups and mammograms.  Finding a change in your breasts and catching in its early stages could change the outcome of a potential breast cancer issue for you immensely. 

Just know, you are important and worth taking the time to care for yourself.  Women often find themselves in an apparent conundrum where they put off caring for themselves because of others in their life that need their time and attention. And caring for yourself can seem like a huge inconvenience.  ...

In addition to General Surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery, Hand surgery has been part of the training required by Plastic Surgeons during their residencies and/or fellowships.  It is with great pride that Plastic Surgeons contribute to this specialty as one of the many complicated puzzles of Plastic Surgery. 

It isn't surprising that Plastic Surgeons had pioneered ...

June 24, 2019, 6:21 p.m.

Summer is here and we wanted to share a couple skin secrets to help you keep looking fresh and staying hydrated in the summer months.  

1. Make sure that your go to products are considered hydrators and not moisturizers.

Take a look at the ingredients on the back of your favorite "moisturizer".  If the first few products named are water, petroleum or another emollient you are doing more harm then good to your skin and your wallet.  

The hydrator that Dr. Capuano and the Northern Center for Plastic ...

Don't be fooled today or any other day when someone tells you they had "no work done"

by Aaron Capuano, M.D., F.A.C.S.
April 1, 2019, 11:27 a.m.

The term "having work done" does not cross over into non invasive and minimally invasive treatments, we have come to realize that is the biggest news that is either shared or unshared, which can be misleading to those of us who aren't privvy to all of the "insider" information within the Aesthetic Rejuvenation industry.  

The latest and greatest nonsurgical minimally invasive treatments have given us the opportunity to push off a facelift surgery and still obtain satisfactory results, however, nothing can match a facelift in its ability to return the ...

It was the famous designer, Coco Chanel who said, "Always remove one thing before you leave the house. Less is more."

If Ms. Chanel were around today consider how she would apply this adage to wrinkles as well. Think, less wrinkles is more.

If your wrinkles tend to make your outfits look busy and unflattering, there is a simple way to reinvent yourself without committing to a whole new wardrobe.  Embrace the simplicity of minimalism and the unspoken elegance of simplicity by drawing less attention to your wrinkles and more ...

March 15, 2018, 5:23 p.m.

Since posting my last Blog on diastasis recti being covered by insurance, see the link below that includes a study regarding how tummy tucks can benefit post pregnancy women who suffer from incontinence and lower back pain.  Can tummy tuck coverage by insurance companies be on the horizon for post pregnancy women who suffer from daily medical issues like incontinence and lower back pain?

It's likely that it isn't anytime soon, but the more information that we have to provide insurance companies as evidence that this can and does effectively ...

Feb. 28, 2018, 10:27 a.m.

Diastasis recti is a diagnosis that is commonly received by women from their OBGYN's post pregnancy when they are in the doctors office asking questions as to why they can't get a flat tummy post pregnancy despite their best efforts.  The OB then tells the woman that they "have a condition that is known as diastasis recti"  the woman then expects that since this is a condition and that the doctor told her it is a post pregnancy thing, that it would be covered by insurance.

Jan. 22, 2018, 8:36 a.m.

Ear lobe reconstruction has finally received national attention. Kris Jenner from "Keeping up with the Kardashians" decided it was time to have her droopy lobes corrected and the surgery that was performed was appropriate, real and safe.  The procedure was a carefully constructed wedge excision to each ear which results in ear lobe rejuvenation.  We love this procedure and so does everyone who has it done by Dr. Capuano.  Our ears and nose never stop growing, this is a procedure for both men and women, though we see more women ...

Jan. 16, 2018, 9:54 a.m.

Many years have passed and you are considering replacing and/or removing your implants.  In many cases, we are finding implants are lasting a lot longer than what was once projected.  Most knowledge had told us that ten years is the optimal timing to replace the older generation of implants.  Though, as that time has come and passed respectively, we see women going as long as fifteen to twenty years, when following approved methods to determine whether or not they should have their implants replaced. This means that they have set ...

As mom's we often find ourselves constantly seeking to satisfy the needs and wants of others.  As a fellow mom, I value what you do on an every day basis, and why you do it.  I also understand this leaves little time for you to focus on yourself. I hear many mother's voicing their concerns over their post pregnancy bodies not returning back to what they once were.  Despite hard core workouts at the gym helping little and ineffective dieting trends causing one to feel down and left with few ...

When life gives you lemons...

Breast Augmentation surgery is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed in the United States.  The results are lasting and implants have come a long way, where the new generation of implants are commonly not needing replacement for up to 20 years vs. the common misconception that replacement is required in 10 years.  Recovery is quick, with most of Dr. Capuano's breast augmentation patients returning to work within five days of surgery.

Age is just an unfortunate number that we throw around the office here like it doesn't matter.  What matters is your health and happiness, if you feel like you are aging prematurely or you feel younger than you look than come in for a visit to find out some options tailored to you, which vary from non-invasive to surgery.  We know that people are happy when they look good.  When I look in the mirror and I look good I do feel better about myself.  It is simple psychology and there is no denying it. A beautiful outfit makes ...

We all know that "loveable" holiday that is just around the corner, Valentine's Day.  For some it causes the reflection of who we love, what we love, who we want to love or conversely who we want to be loved by and of course we can't forget our deep seeded love for all things chocolate.

It is also the time when we consider wearing something that makes us look and feel "sexy".  And not by coincidence, it is also when our office gets flooded with consults for the endearing term ...

Don't let your migraine headaches dog your day

Oct. 21, 2016, 9:47 a.m.

Botox is not only used for cosmetic purposes.  When properly administered, botox is also a very effective way of controlling migraines.  Botox is used to relax the muscles that trap the nerves on your face and scalp and cause migraine symptoms.  Patients who receive this treatment often report fewer instances of migraine headaches with less intensity if they do occur.  A proper consultation with Dr. Capuano is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Don't rely on luck regarding your surgical outcomes

by Aaron Capuano, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Oct. 19, 2016, 1:01 p.m.

Choosing the right surgeon is the most important step you can take on your pursuit to cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.  Your results are important. Don't succumb to the illusion that you are a lucky person and "fingers crossed" everything will be fine.  Complications can happen, even in experienced hands.  You should also know that the risk of failure is extremely high and the complications can be very dangerous if you are not in the hands of an experienced, properly trained, and board certified plastic surgeon.

Nov. 10, 2015, 1:54 p.m.

So many of us are concerned when looking in the mirror from mid day on and feeling like we have that tired, exhausted look. The puff, as I refer to it, above or below your eyes, where your lids look like they are napping and sagging over your eye or resembling a cradle below your eyeball. Could that be the result of exhaustion, allergy or the need for a minor skin excision, or something less invasive like fillers or botox?  The answer may be even as simple as a botox ...
