Flower Enzyme Facial, Skincare

April 24th, 2013

With Spring upon us, we are introducing some new skin care treatments that will prep your skin for summer and help remove dead skin cell build up from winter.

Perfect for all skin types, the Flower Enzyme Facial stimulates and tones the skin using mild organic acids from flower extracts.  This facial also provides excellent anti-oxidant protection, especially important as we head outdoors and expose our skin to more UV rays.

If you would like to find out if this facial or a different skin care treatment is right for you, we recommend booking a complimentary skincare evaluation with Cathy or Rose.  Please call (800) 559-3056 to schedule or fill out the contact form on the right hand side of this page.

A Patient Speaks From Experience: Why Dr. Adams Is The Best At Botox & Fillers

April 23, 2014

Boston's Finest Plastic Surgeon!

We love hearing from our patients, especially when they express how much they love Dr. Adams!  We know he’s a very special plastic surgeon, and you won’t find anyone else out there quite like him.  He’s sure to make you laugh, but his work also sets itself far above the competition.  We received the following note from a happy patient this morning!

Just a comment. Had fillers by Dr. Adams today. He performs miracles. I look 10 years younger! I’ve made ”the rounds” in Boston, New York, so can say from experience that no one compares to Dr. Adams. 

PS –  Plus he’s a good looking man! Blush, blush.


Why Dr. Adams Always Has Excellent Liposuction Results On His Patients

April 21st, 2014

You’ve seen the botched celebrity liposuction photos floating around the internet and it leads many to ask, how does this happen?  I sat down with Dr. Adams today and asked him a few questions about liposuction.  How does he consistently have excellent liposuction results?  Much of his success comes down to two things:  patient selection and technique.

Q: Dr. Adams, your before and after photos for liposuction are flawless.  How do you get such great results?

A: Great liposuction results come down to two things: patient selection and surgical technique.  I think it’s important to understand that not everyone is a candidate for liposuction.  This is why the initial consultation is so important.  Many times bad results can be avoided by carefully examining a patient and making sure they are a candidate for the surgery.  Age can also be a factor – the older you are, the more risk there is associated with the surgery.

Great liposuction results also come down to surgical technique.  How the doctor removes the fat and utilizes the suctioning power of the machine is very important.  When removing layers of fat, I always leave one layer of fat beneath the skin which gives the result a more natural appearance.

Q: Do you recommend that patients massage the areas where liposuction was performed during recovery?

A: Actually, no.  Although some surgeons recommend this, I do not.  For the first 5 days following liposuction, the area is quite tender and feels bruised.  The skin will naturally adjust and massage can in fact cause more swelling.  In my opinion massage does nothing beneficial for the results and can sometimes prevent the area from healing properly.

Q: Are some areas of the body better suited to liposuction than others?

Yes.  The area under the neck tends to have great results with liposuction.  There are seldom irregularities here.  Again, every patient is different and it is extremely important to carefully examine the patient during their consultation to make sure he/she is an appropriate candidate.

Q: Is liposuction a treatment for cellulite?

No and this is a very important point I make to patients during their consultation.  There are lasers out there that will help reduce the appearance of cellulite but liposuction will not help with the appearance of cellulite.  We offer a non-invasive procedure performed by our skin care specialists Cathy and Rose that is called SmoothShapes.  Through a series of 6-8 treatments, SmoothShapes can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Have additional questions about liposuction for the doctor?  Call (800) 559-3056 to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for liposuction.  Or fill out the contact form on the right hand side of the page and a patient care coordinator will contact you shortly.


Is Peach Fuzz A Problems For You? Remove It The Right Way With Dermaplaning

April 18, 2014

We asked skin care specialist Cathy about which procedure she would recommend that many patients do not take advantage of.  She said that Dermaplaning, a treatment often added onto a facial, is one that patients don’t always know is available to them.

Dermaplaning exfoliates the epidermis and removes fine vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz”.   Please note, this treatment is different from Dermabrasion, as service we also offer.  Dermaplaning is done by using a scalpel and carefully scraping the surface of the skin to remove hair using gentle feathering strokes.

This is a very quick, affordable procedure that is quickly gaining popularity.  There are no adverse effects and there is no downtime.  This a great “lunchtime” procedure meaning you can return after the procedure without any visible implications that you have had the procedure done.

Please remember this is a medical treatment and should be performed by a licensed skin care specialist like Rose or Cathy in our office.  If you are interested in Dermaplaning and would like to find out more information, you can visit our office for a complimentary skin care consultation.  Call (800) 559-3056 to schedule your appointment or fill out the contact form on our site.

Men Turning To Cosmetic Surgery To Prevent Aging

April 5th, 2013

The number of male plastic surgery patients continues to rise, but the motivation behind having “work” done is not vanity.  Men feel compelled to groom and maintain their appearance, and in this day and age, this includes minimizing the appearance of crows feet and fine lines with injectables and fillers.

The top three surgical procedures for men include Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, and Blepharoplasty.  Although statistically speaking, men have a long way to go to catch up with the women when it comes to cosmetic surgery, it’s good to see that the field is gaining wider approval with the male population.

Interested in doing something special for the man in your life?  Refer him to Dr. Adams and you’ll receive a $50 referral credit in your account!  Call (800) 559-3056 to schedule an appointment.
