The only thing that has changed since I wrote that post is that I have seen many patients who have suffered terrible damage from hydrogel injections! My position remains the same: Hydrogel to buttocks: Don't do it! To recap.... Reasons not to... Learn More

Patients today are doing a lot of research about the upper Lip Lift, so one of the most frequent questions I get is if I work with the muscle of the upper lip. Patients want to know if my technique involves only the skin, or if I lift the muscle in any way. My Lip Lift technique involves lifting the skin only, and I do not involve the muscle. It seems one of the biggest proponents of technique incorporating the muscle is Dr. Randal Haworth in California... Learn More

The short answer is yes, and we are using Fat Grafts and Adipose Stem Cells more and more for this purpose. We are just beginning to understand how this process works, and it has to do with the nature of scar tissue itself and the basic behaviors of stem cells. HOW DOES A SCAR FORM?

Our goal is to give you the information you need to decide if cosmetic surgery is right for you. We hope to prepare you for the options that are available in plastic surgery by giving you specific information, with actual before and after plastic surgery photos, about the various cosmetic surgery procedures offered by Dr. Rodriguez, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Baltimore.
Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift
Breast Augmentation candidates have the choice of high profile or moderate implants, as well as the decision as to where the breast implants are inserted. Breast Lift patients also have the choice of where the incision is made for the lift.
Liposuction, Tummy Tuck
Liposuction is the single most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can help eliminate stretch marks and tighten the muscles in the abdomen.
Facelift cosmetic surgery candidates often tell us they think they look older than they feel but tend to have a very vague idea of what might help them look younger.
Brazilian Butt Lift, Thigh Lift, Body Lift, Labiaplasty
A Brazilian butt lift, or butt augmentation, creates a rounder, more prominent derriere. A thigh lift can help reduce the sagging skin in the inner or outer thigh area. A lower body lift, or belt lipectomy, encompasses the abdomen, thighs and buttocks and is often chosen by weight loss patients to remove excess skin. The popularity of labiaplasty, or "intimate surgery," has skyrocketed over the last few years for various reasons. Some women wish to eliminate discomfort while others desire to change their appearance.
