Kylie Jenner: Puberty or Plastic Surgery?Kylie Jenner has grown up in front of the world.  Starting at age 11, the reality star has now transformed herself into a glamorous business woman with millions of fans around the world.  Being around a family that embraces plastic surgery, Kylie Jenner admitted to the use of lip fillers at age 16.  It is obvious now that the further changes in her appearance are not just due to puberty, but to a combination of plastic surgery procedures.  Although Kylie is a naturally pretty woman, she has further enhanced her beauty.Kylie Jenner Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures. Kylie has admitted to the use of lip fillers due to her small lips.  Seeking poutier lips, she has had lip injections with a filler like Juvederm.  Performed in-office, lip injections are safe but have a limited lifespan of around 4-6 months.  Those seeking longer term results, can try fat transfer to the lips.Kylie also appears to be using Botox to alter her facial muscles.  She appears to have a Botox Brow Lift and a Botox Lip Flip.  She has also most likely had microneedling with PRP to improve her skin texture. Kylie Jenner Breast Surgery.Kylie appears to have a dramatic change in the size and shape of her breasts.  This was most likely accomplished with breast augmentation using breast implants.  Breast Augmentation provides immediate, long-lasting results.  Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat transfer in many cases.Kylie Jenner Butt SurgeryKylie has also unveiled a new figure complete with a smaller waist and bigger butt.  This was most likely accomplished with a Brazilian Butt Lift or Buttock Implants.  The Brazilian Butt Lift combines aggressive body contouring with liposuction to make a smaller waist and back.  The fat removed is then transferred to the buttocks to increase the size and provide a change in shape and lift.  This procedure can be performed in-office under local anesthesia.  Buttock implants involve the use of silicone inserts inserted into the buttocks under general anesthesia.Like Kylie Jenner’s Plastic Surgery Transformation? Even though she is young, Kylie has dramatically changed her appearance with plastic surgery.  If you are interested in some or all of these procedures, Beleza Medspa offers free consultations to discuss your personal goals.  Austin Plastic Surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez MD, is an expert at body contouring, breast augmentations, Brazilian Butt Lifts and Lip Injections.  …

Hair Transplant Austin Reviews

Hair Transplant ReviewAt Beleza, we pride ourselves on having the some of the top providers and procedures in Austin Texas. What is even more humbling to us is having an actual patient want to give testimony about their experience with us. For someone to be so satisfied with their results and their experience, and want to share it with the world, well, we are beyond pleased by this.Neograft Hair Transplant ReviewMeet Keith, an actual Neograft Hair Transplant patient of Beleza MedSpa. Keith came to us over a year ago in hopes of undergoing NeoGraft in the next year or so. He shopped around and eventually decided to have his procedure with us, which we were thrilled about. After 9 months since his procedure, Keith was ready to speak out about his experience and share it with the world. Like any medical spa, this is music to our ears. Please watch his Hair Transplant Review below.https://youtu.be/fzjxF2PGrwQKeith also gave the following Hair Transplant Austin Review:I had three issues:1.) Does Hair Transplant Work?Based on years of research and my own experience, I’d say it seems to work on everybody. They have figured out that if you take hairs from your head, they can successfully be transplanted to another part of your head. I think it always worked, they have just gotten better at doing it and making it look natural.2.) Does Hair Transplant Hurt?A little at first with the numbing shots, but you don’t really feel anything after a couple of minutes. Also, it itched a little for 2 months.3.) Is Hair Transplant Expensive?You bet. But considering I had two technicians working on me for 12 hours (7 am – 7 pm) it was a bargain. I got a part time job for a year and that covered it. I could have saved some money flying to Turkey, but that seems risky for an old, white American. I looked better than when I went in after 2 months. And after 5 months, I would have been completed satisfied. But it seems to get better every day. (8 months out as of this writing).You are probably going to want to wear a hat for a few months when you are out and about, but after a few months you can ditch the hats. I doubt I’ll ever wear one again. When you look online at the before and after pictures, it’s obvious that the picture on the left is one sad, old looking fellow. The guy on the right always looks at least 10 years younger and is farting rainbows. I decided I wanted to be the picture on the right. No honor in being bald.”– Keith W., 10.15.17 (8 months post-op) Beleza NeoGraft Patient, 2017NeoGraft Before and After PhotosOur medical professionals are highly experienced in NeoGraft Hair Transplants and can answer any questions you may have about the treatment.

Austin Plastic Surgery

Looking for Austin Plastic Surgery? The process of selecting the right procedure and the right Austin plastic surgeon can be confusing and scary. We are bombarded with new procedures, advertisements, miracle cures and even worse, bad plastic surgery. Where does one start?  The good news is that the internet now gives you access to a wealth of information about cosmetic plastic surgery.  You can research the procedures available and read the experiences of actual patients. It is important to not try every new procedure before they have had some time to work the kinks out.   Check out patient reviews, the company websites as well as the practice websites. Compare each procedure with other procedures as well as between practices.Non Surgical Procedures Plastic surgery procedures run the gamut from full-blown surgery to comfortable, noninvasive procedures.   Today patients are less tolerant of big scars, crazy prices, downtime, pain and unnatural results.  More and more plastic surgery patients are even less crazy about the risks of general anesthesia or ‘going under’.   The market has responded and there are an increasing number of less invasive and nonsurgical procedures.  Skin can be tightened with heat via radiofrequency and laser applied outside of the body.  Fat can be reduced by using laser energy and freezing it with cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting.Tumescent Anesthesia Even invasive procedures like liposuction, tummy tucks, fat transfer and breast augmentation have evolved to be safer.  Tumescent anesthesia which involves the use of a lidocaine solution injected under the skin, has revolutionized cosmetic plastic surgery.  Patients can now stay safely awake during their procedures and completely eliminate the risk of general anesthesia.  Tumescent anesthesia also reduces infection and bleeding risks and allows the patient to have a faster, and less painful recovery.Austin Plastic Surgery Beleza Med Spa Austin one of the leading providers of both cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical and noninvasive procedures in the Austin area.  Beleza Med Spa has always strived to provide the most effective procedures at the best prices.  We have been pioneers in performing procedures under local anesthesia, which lowers the risk as well as the price of the procedure.  Beleza Medspa surgeons have performed more than 3000  Smartlipo Laser Liposuction procedures under tumescent anesthesia.  They have also performed numerous tummy tucks, fat transfer and gynecomastia procedures all under local anesthesia.   The Beleza Medspa staff are also experienced in Coolsculpting, Venus Freeze, Weight Loss Diets and many other body contouring procedures. Beleza Med Spa is your one stop office offering the safety, effectiveness and value for your money that you are looking for.  Consultations are always free and we can discuss all of your plastic surgery needs.…

Minimally-Invasive, Facial Rejuvenation Procedures Fuel 5% Growth; American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Reports Annual Statistics The annual statistics for cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in 2012 have just been released.  14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including both minimally-invasive and surgical, were performed in the United States in 2012, up 5 percent since 2011.  For the third year in a row, the overall growth in cosmetic plastic surgery continues to be driven by a significant rise in minimally-invasive procedures, while surgical procedures remain relatively stable.  Lawrence Broder  MD, owner of Beleza Medspa in Austin TX, reports seeing similar trends in his practice.  “We continue to see strong growth in injectable procedures like Botox and Juvederm, laser procedures like Dot therapy, photofacials and laser hair removal,” he reports.  “What has been even more promising is the growth in non-invasive body contouring procedures like Coolsculpting and Venus Freeze.” The ASPS report showed cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures increased 6 percent, with more than 13 million procedures in 2012. The top five minimally-invasive procedures were: 1.  Botulinum toxin type A (6.1 million procedures, up 8 percent) (like Botox and Dysport) 2. Soft tissue fillers (2 million procedures, up 5 percent) (like Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse) 3. Chemical peel (1.1 million procedures, up 2 percent) (like Vi peel, vitilize peel, etc.) 4. Laser hair removal (1.1 million procedures, up 4 percent) 5. Microdermabrasion (974,000 procedures, up 8 percent) ASPS reports that cosmetic plastic surgery procedures decreased 2 percent, with nearly 1.6 million procedures in 2012. The top five surgical procedures were: 1. Breast augmentation (286,000 procedures, down 7 percent) 2. Nose reshaping (243,000 procedures, no change) 3. Liposuction (202,000 procedures, down 1 percent) 4. Eyelid surgery (204,000 procedures, up 4 percent) 5. Facelift (126,000 procedures, up 6 percent) Dr Broder comments: “Quite frankly, Beleza Medspa has rode the wave of  the popularity of minimally invasive procedure since it’s inception.”  “We started out 6 years ago with a few injectables and lasers,” “We have now progressed to Smartlipo Laser liposuction, Microneedling with PRP Facelift with platelet rich plasma, Brazilian Butt lifts with fat transfer and CO2 fractional laser resurfacing.”  He adds: “Our patients want more results and less downtime.  They are very busy and can’t take off.  Treatments like Coolsculpting that non-invasively reduce fat in one hour, fit that bill.” “Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are still the gold standard for many problems on the body.  But what you are seeing with these statistics, is that the technology is catching up.  Horrible scars, long recoveries, big bills, and arrogant plastic surgeons will not cut it anymore.  Patients are now educated about the procedures, the doctors and are actively talking to each other about it.  They want the most effective procedure at the best price.  They want customer service and they read all the reviews.  They are very savvy and want value for their money.” Interestingly, the ASPS report showed an increase in facial procedures, while a decrease in female breast procedures.  Male breast procedures however saw an increase of     5%.  “Again, our patient population mirrors these national trends,” reports Beleza.  “The baby boomers out there are making their presence known.  They are mostly active and healthy and want their appearance to match. Laser resurfacing, vampire face lifts and venus freeze skin tightening can give great results with minimal to no downtime.”  beleza adds: “The trend in female breast augmentation may be do to the rise of fat transfer.  Women prefer augmenting their breasts with their own fat, plus they can get it removed from where they don’t want it.  New techniques and better equipment have spurred this.  The rise in male gynecomastia or man boob procedures is most likely due to the increased use of supplements and hormones.” Beleza concludes: “This is an exciting time for cosmetic plastic surgery procedures.  New technologies come out almost monthly.  Our patients are better educated about the procedures and we are constantly trying to find new ways to communicate with them.  We are just at the cusp of understanding the role of stem cells and growth factors in rejuvenation.  This is the most promising development as we will be able to harness cells in your own body to do the work of anti-aging.  Beleza Medspa will always be on the cutting edge of these new procedures.”…
