Even here in the Tri-State, it still is amazing how many people are willing to risk their safety when getting cosmetic injections, such as Botox, Juvederm, or other dermal fillers by going to non-physicians (dentists, chiropractors, cosmetologists, etc) or non-qualified physicians who have no real, qualitative training in these procedures. Many practitioners have gone to a "weekend course" to become a so-called expert, or worse yet, were "trained" by another non-qualified practitioner. For example, why would you go to an OB-GYN to have a facial aesthetic procedure, when you wouldn't go to your dermatologist to do an gynecological exam? Further, many non-qualified practitioners are cost-cutting using blackmarket botulinum toxin, which IS NOT BOTOX Cosmetic. They often use this or other illegally-obtained and non-FDA-approved substances, yet are too often falsely claiming they are the real namebrand. This compromises your safety in a profound way.
Injectables, if done correctly, and using proper FDA-approved botulinum toxin and fillers can be a convenient and quick way to get aesthetic improvements and results.
If done incorrectly, injections can cause permanent damage not only aesthetically, but also to nerves, blood vessels, skin, and muscles. As with any medical procedure, only seek the help of qualified, certified professionals for injections.
Only Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons or Dermatologists have the necessary training in facial anatomy and aesthetic artfulness to keep your safety first and foremost.
Always do research not only on the procedure you’re considering, but on the professional you’re considering as well. And, just because you are going to a plastic surgeon's office to get your procedures done, it does not mean that it is actually the physician doing the procedure. Ask this when inquiring about any injectable procedure, and choose a plastic surgeon who performs these procedures themselves. This is the only way to minimize risk and get the results you expect!

Do you feel like your eyes are making you look older or more tired than you feel? If so, you may be a candidate for eyelid surgery, formally known as blepharoplasty.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove fat, excess skin, and loose muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It can improve drooping upper eyelids and reduce puffy bags underneath them. The end-result may be that your appearance is improved and these undesirable features are reduced, for a more refreshed, youthful look. Other services may be used adjunctively to address the thinning of the eyelid skin, such as a fractional laser procedure, or treatments for dark pigmentation around the eyes, such as appropriate skincare products, as well as some laser procedures. Botox can be used to treat crow's feet lines at the outer corners of the eye.
Take some time to research eyelid surgery and speak with Dr. Sholar to determine whether you are a good candidate for these procedures. As with all surgeries, there is risk involved- so it’s important to seek out a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Sholar to consult with.
For any information on this or other treatments and services, please contact Sholar Center at 401-7900.

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and underlying structures begin to sag, forming a jowling jawline and deep furrows on the face. While non-invasive treatments like fillers and Botox injections can often help smooth and camouflage wrinkles, a facelift goes a step further to remedy the following visible signs of aging (courtesy American Society of Plastic Surgeons):
- Sagging in the midface
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
- Fat that has fallen or is displaced
- Loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls
- Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin
All surgery carries some element of risk. That is why it’s important to research plastic surgeons and choose one that you trust. Only choose to have procedures done when you are comfortable with the procedure itself, as well as the doctor performing it. Dr. Sholar will review the risk of every procedure with her patient during an extensive consultation. She discusses the risks associated with facelift, including hematoma (post-operative bleeding)- the most common complication- as well as seroma (collection of fluid), infection, sloughing of skin and unacceptable scarring of incisions. There are risks and benefits associated with every form of cosmetic enhancement, whether it is Botox or a more invasive procedure.
Bruising and swelling are typically limited, which makes for rapid recovery.
The best candidates for facelifts are men or women whose skin has begun to sag, but still maintains some elasticity and has a well-defined bone structure. Remember- facelifts can’t give you a completely new look, but can restore your appearance to the health and vitality of your youth.
Learning a bit about facelifts can go a long way in making the right decision. Having a facelift can be a very positive experience. A facelift done by a skilled, board-certified surgeon, such as Dr. Sholar, can have pleasing, long-lasting results. For more information, contact Sholar Center at 401-7900.
