Not happy with your aging appearance? At Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, Dr. DouglasBotox Treatment Heygi and his aesthetic team use Botox to smooth the subtle and not so subtle signs of facial aging. Effective, quick, and comfortable, Botox works wonders for your appearance and your self-confidence, too.


What is BOTOX?

Believe it or not, it's a bacteria, highly processed to be safe and to treat areas of the face affected by dynamic wrinkling. Dynamic wrinkling happens where facial muscles contract when smiling and frowning. Corners of the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and across the forehead are the usual places which show the wear and tear of years gone by.

In his Lapeer and Rochester offices, Dr. Heygi places Botox injectables directly under the skin, using a super fine needle. Almost immediately, the medication begins to limit muscular movement. Over the next three to four days, patients see the full effects: smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer lines and wrinkles. This rejuvenated look lasts four to six months or longer.


Who can get Botox injections?

Most healthy adults under the age of 65 qualify for Botox treatments. When you come to Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center, you'll be fully evaluated to assure that you receive the cosmetic treatment right for your skin type, aesthetic goals, and lifestyle. Most importantly, you'll understand the process fully as Dr. Heygi explains that the therapeutic effects of Botox are temporary. Repeat injections (every several months) maintain your new look, and your facial muscles actually learn how to relax more easily the more treatments you have.

Finally, Botox is great for people who do not want the expense and downtime of invasive cosmetic surgeries. Botox treatments take just minutes, and you can return to your normal activities right away. All you'll see is a little redness and puffiness around the injection sites, which will also resolve relatively quickly.


Discover the benefits of Botox

If you are interested in Botox treatment, please call one of our offices to arrange your cosmetic skin consultation. For Lapeer, phone (810) 664-7640, and for Rochester, call (248) 844-3690. You'll love your new look!

Woman with Breast EnhancementAre your breasts smaller than you would like? Breast augmentation may be an excellent option for you. The surgery is among the treatments offered by Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.

Is breast augmentation right for me?

Concerns about the appearance of your breasts can affect your self-esteem and may even make you feel less confident in social settings. Breast augmentation, the most popular type of cosmetic surgery according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, may offer the perfect solution. The surgery increases the size of your breasts and improves breast volume using implants or a fat transfer procedure.

Breast augmentation is a good choice if:

  • You feel that your breasts are too small.
  • One of your breasts is large than the other.
  • You've lost volume in your breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
  • You've had a mastectomy.
  • You want your breasts to look rounder.

If you plan to undergo breast augmentation, you must be in good health and have realistic expectations regarding the results of the surgery. If you are a young woman, you must also wait until your breasts have developed completely before you have the surgery.

What happens during breast augmentation?

After you receive anesthesia, your doctor will make an incision under your breast, in your armpit or along the darker areola in the center of the breast. If you will be receiving silicone or saline implants, your doctor will either place the implants behind your breast tissue or over or under the pectoral muscle in your chest.

If you choose a fat transfer breast augmentation, your doctor will use liposuction to suction fat from a few areas of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, flank, thighs or back. Once the fat is removed, it will be thoroughly cleaned before being injected into your breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a good option if you want to increase the size of your breasts slightly or want to correct small differences in the size of your breasts.

Breast augmentation can improve your silhouette and boost your self-esteem! Schedule an appointment with Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center by calling (810) 664-7640 for the Lapeer, MI, office or (248) 844-3690 for the Rochester, MI, office.

Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States according to the American Society breast augmentationof Plastic Surgeons. It’s the process of increasing or decreasing the size of the breasts, or lifting them for a more favorable appearance. This cosmetic surgery is now available at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rochester and Lapeer, MI. 

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation
Your breast size is one part of your body that you can’t normally change with exercise or diet -- it's mostly determined by heredity. If you’re not satisfied with the size of your breasts, implants can be surgically added to them to enhance your physique. Some women choose this procedure after they have lost a lot of weight. Breast augmentation also helps patients who have asymmetrical breasts (one breast is slightly larger than the other). In some cases, your doctor can also do a breast lift in addition to augmentation to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. 

The Breast Augmentation Consultation
Before this procedure, you must come in for a detailed cosmetic consultation with your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, plastic surgeon. There you will discuss your goals, including the cup size you want and the type of implant. You may be a candidate for a fat transfer augmentation, which injects fat from another area of your body into the breasts. Your surgeon will also review your medical history and get familiar with any allergies or conditions you may have. If cleared for the surgery, you'll be scheduled for another appointment and given preparatory instructions.

What to Expect from the Procedure
You must be in good general health to have breast augmentation surgery. The average procedure is finished in a couple of hours. Your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, surgeon will have you under general or intravenous anesthesia the entire time, so you must have a companion with you. An incision is made in an inconspicuous location where the implant or fat tissue will be inserted. After suturing and some recovery time, you can go home the same day. You should expect to take at least a week off from work after a breast augmentation surgery to ensure proper healing.

Consult a Cosmetic Surgeon
To get a full view of what breast augmentation involves, talk to a plastic surgeon and ask the questions you still have on your mind. Call (248) 844-3690 today for Rochester, MI, or (810) 664-7640 to schedule a cosmetic consultation at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer, MI.

While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, lax and aging skin are probably not what people were talking about. Symmetrical, youthful and fillerssmooth skin are promoted every day. So, where does that leave you? Easy. At Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center, located in Lapeer and Rochester, MI, doctors provide patients with dermal fillers to regain and rejuvenate that youthful look.

What are injectable dermal fillers?

For several years collagen was the first and only FDA approved filler consisting of highly purified bovine, a dermal tissue extracted from cows.

A new filler was later developed that had only one percent rejection rate and contained human collagen. There was simultaneously a popular silicone filler removed from the market when silicone was banned from being used in breast implants.

Today, hyaluronic acid-based fillers, a naturally occurring substance that contributes to cell proliferation, are popular. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are made from bacterial proteins and don't require skin testing because they're already found in the body. The transparent gel is injected into facial tissue to eliminate wrinkles and smoothen folds.

What are other dermal fillers used in the USA?

Restylane received FDA approval in 2003, as well as other cosmetic fillers such as Perlane, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma

You'll find calcium-based fillers instead of hyaluronic acid in markets these days, just ask your Lapeer and Rochester doctor. These new dermal fillers include Radiance/Radiesse, which is FDA approved and said to last up to 18 months.

Technological advancements have proven effective in creating safer products to rejuvenate your skin. If you have any questions about cosmetic fillers, don't hesitate to call your doctor at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.
