- Avoid wearing any facial foundation or make up since it will clog up pores with heat under the mask
- Wash or change your mask frequently
- Use medical grade skin care products for clean skin and to prevent mask break outs
- Create a palate of clear, clean skin by doing no downtime facial procedures during the summer
- Focus on your eyes that are seen above the mask

Men are complicated and lovely all at the same time. They want to age gracefully, but they really don’t want to grow old and we respect that. However, sometimes I hear men say that they look in the mirror and they really do not recognize who they see. The aging process affects all of us, it is just that women may be more likely to do something about it. We change our hair, nails and makeup. We look for other ways to spruce ourselves up. Men may also want to do this, but it is more on the sly. They don’t always want to share their pre-aging secrets. This is where Burgess Plastic Surgery comes into play. We provide many aesthetic services, but we can keep their secret. (more…)
How can fat be good? Don’t we spend our waking hours trying to slim down? We do CoolSculpting and liposuction, but maybe a little fat could be put to good use in other areas of the face. As we age we can lose volume in our face making us look old and gaunt. But now the magic of fat can smooth faces out and give a youthful appearance. Let’s explore the concepts of Microfat, Nanofat and Aquagold Microinfusion.
The Virtual Consult and 3D Crisalix Analysis for Breast Augmentation, Breast Reduction and Facial RejuvenationTuesday, May 5th, 2020
My patients often ask me, “What will I look like after surgery or a procedure?”. I find that this is the hardest thing to explain to a patient. It is complicated because everyone’s starting anatomy is different with varying skin quality, breast volume, chest wall projection or even facial volume loss with textural changes. Fortunately, we have six years of 3D virtual experience using the Crisalix system. Our initial focus was on breast augmentation. We have used a 3D scanner in the office to map the surface of a patient’s breasts. This helps with discovering the anatomy of the chest wall, breast volume, nipple position. Then once the 3D image is rendered, we can help the patient “try” on different implant styles and volumes. The final image is thought to be around 3-6 months after the surgery. It has been fun to do this with patients and have their eyes light up as they look at the improvement of their own breasts. This of course is no guarantee of outcome but it does give a pretty good idea of what it may look like after surgery and that has been consistent with what we have seen in our clinic.
Microneedling combined with platelet-rich plasma is a fantastic way to treat your skin. It harnesses the healing components of your own blood and combines it with gentle microneedling treatment.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is packed with growth factors. These growth factors may support tissue creation and repair. Microneedling with PRP combines both treatments: the tiny needles and growth-factor power of PRP to stimulate collagen production. First, microneedling is performed, making microscopic openings in the skin’s surface. Once microneedling is complete, we’ll apply the PRP treatment to your face. The tiny openings can better receive the PRP than if microneedling was not performed.
How Long Does Microneedling with PRP Last?
For many patients, acne scars and brown spots can be removed after microneedling with PRP. Make sure you wear SPF-rated cosmetics and sunblock everyday to protect your results.
A series of 3 PRP with microneedling treatments may diminish fine lines and sagging for up to a year or longer. Maintenance treatments will prolong your results.
