4 Questions to Ask Your Surgeon Before Liposuction

4 Questions to Ask Your Surgeon Before Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most gratifying cosmetic procedures we offer our Manhattan Beach plastic surgery patients. That’s because liposuction can sculpt and slim areas of the body that diet and exercise sometimes can’t. (We all know the frustration of trying to “spot treat” our trouble zones.) With relatively little downtime and results that can last several years, it’s no wonder so many people choose this popular body contouring procedure. Once you’ve decided to have liposuction, it’s important to choose a provider who is qualified …

Mommy Makeover- Get that Glow

I met with her for my skin analysis and facial (our New Patient Facial is complimentary for every new client to our spa) and she asked me what my goals were for my skin. I explained that the primary concerns were pore size in my T-zone and …

Mommy Makeover- Eyebrows Are So Hot Right Now

Mommy Makeover- The First Step

I like to do the easy things first. In the interview for my current position when I was asked "What would you say is one of your flaws" I didn't come out and say procrastination- that's not the right word- but I did say that I tend to leave difficult tasks on the table until I have a chance to analyze them. So, I decided for my Mommy Makeover that I would work up to diet and exercise. I will analyze the logistics of those …

A New Mommy and Her Makeover

My Mommy Makeover- The Beginning About 4 months ago I had a baby. He is insanely adorable- all cheeks with a toothless smile that could melt the heart of the abominable snowman. He was unplanned (don't judge) and by far, the most exciting surprise of my life. I worked really hard the first trimester to not gain a ton of weight by eating really clean and exercising often. By the second trimester most of that intention was violently thrown out the window. Between the pregnancy …

Tattooing after Breast Reconstruction

Tattooing after Breast Reconstruction

Valerie Gilbert has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. She serves the entire Los Angeles and Orange County cities and receives referrals from prominent plastic surgeons and physicians. She became interested in Cosmetic Tattooing after seeing someone who had re-constructive breast surgery following a bout with breast cancer.
