breast augmentation columbus ohDr. Donaldson offers you tips and ideas to get the best results from your breast augmentation surgery.  After choosing the right board certified plastic surgeon, you can move on to selecting size and shape. These can be a difficult decisions, and Dr. Donaldson has a proven methodology to make sure breast augmentation patients are happy with natural-looking results.

#1 Open Communication.  It’s that easy.  During consultation Dr. Donaldson will openly address any questions you may have and will go out of his way to ensure you understand each step of the pre- and post-operative procedure. You will be encouraged to discuss your goals and expectations of breast augmentation surgery to get a realistic sense of your unique surgical result. Women who are able to discuss their concerns and reservations during consultation tend to be much more confident and knowledgeable heading into surgery, and happier afterward as well.

#2  Tester Implants.  Dr. Donaldson offers a full array of sample breast implants for you to “test drive”  during your visit.  Implants can also be simulated before or after consultation by using simple home materials such as bags filled with rice.  You can place them in your bra and exchange them for different cup sizes to better visualize your new figure and determine how your clothes will fit and feel.

#3  Experience.  During your initial sizing consultation, Dr. Donaldson will offer several options based on your measurements, physique and aspirations.  You might not necessarily choose your implant size during the first consultation, but you will be given enough information and professional guidance to begin narrowing the choices.  You will have an opportunity to hold and feel actual breast implants, and Dr. Donaldson will share “before and after” photos that represent his work.

It is important to have a thorough consultation in order to know your options, answer your questions, set your expectations and ensure beautiful surgical results!

columbus oh liposuctionWe are well into 2011, and hopefully your New Year’s Resolutions are coming to fruition! Many of us committed to losing weight this year and we are attempting to spend more time in the gym and less time in the kitchen. As a tantalizing reward, warm weather is just around the corner and it will soon be time to show off your beach-ready body!

If the idea of sporting a bikini sounds more traumatizing than tantalizing, it may be time to give your diet and exercise regimen a little boost. Liposuction is a popular elective cosmetic surgery that complements healthy nutrition and active lifestyles. Many men and women are frustrated by those last few pounds that they can’t seem to shed — that last little bulge that won’t flatten no matter what. You can give nature a helping hand with minimally invasive liposuction surgery to achieve a tighter tummy or more slender thighs.

The incisions used for liposuction surgery are very small and easily hidden. It is common to have mild swelling and bruising for up to a week, but surgery now would have you ready in time for better weather!

Smooth Your Lines & Wrinkles Without Pain from an Injection

columbus oh anti agingAcross the nation and around the world, men and women continue to seek products and procedures that can help turn back the aging hands of time. Getting older is inevitable, but looking older can be slowed or even prevented. Some of the easiest, most efficient and affordable anti-aging remedies are injectable medications and fillers that directly treat wrinkles and folds. The most popular fillers, Juvéderm and Restylane, can erase fine lines, plump out deeper crevices and even prevent skin from losing further natural elasticity.

Dr. Donaldson and his dedicated staff are now pleased to offer Juvéderm XC. This is a relatively new and technologically-advanced form of the popular dermal injectable that also contains numbing medication. With the addition of lidocaine to the filler, patients feel virtually no pain as their crow’s feet and smile lines fade away.

Juvéderm XC has allowed many new patients to enjoy the benefits of injectable fillers without the discomfort of techniques that were used in the past. The effects usually last for at least a year, and they can be repeated as often as necessary.  Once the effects wear off, there is no worsening or “rebound effect” — you simply return to the same appearance you had before the procedure.

Contact Dr. Donaldson and his clinic today to arrange your appointment for Juvéderm XC. You will benefit from the long-lasting anti-aging effects without fear of pain. Even patients who are afraid of needles can now experience a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

Hundreds of children are born each year Microtia, Latin for “little ear”. This condition is a congenital deformity of the ear where the outer and middle ear does not fully develop. It is present in one in 7,500 births, and is more prevalent in boys. Microtia can affect just one ear or both. There are four grades of the condition ranging from a minor deformity to the complete absence of an ear.

Parents who’ve had a child born with the condition will usually see a variety of specialists for treatment. These specialists include an ENT (ear, nose & throat), a pediatrician, an audiologist and an ear reconstruction surgeon. Plastic surgeons that specialize in ear reconstruction are often the best option for ear reconstruction.

There are many methods available to treat Microtia, although none has stood the test of time and practice better than The Rib Graft Technique. This surgery is done in four stages over the course of 12-18 months, usually when a child is 6-7 years old. Stage one is the actual rib graft surgery. Stage two is construction of an earlobe. Stage three and four are for sculpting, elevating and carving a natural look to the transplanted cartilage.
Creating a new ear for these young patients can dramatically improve their lives. Looking like all the other kids is the ideal for young children just entering school. The surgery can restore a “normal” look to the ear and give patients the self confidence they need at this critical stage in their young lives.

Ear reconstruction is a long process that requires the skill and expertise of a practiced surgeon. Dr. Mark Jones of Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is a premier plastic surgeon who holds dual board certification in Otolaryngology (ENT) and Plastic Surgery. Dr. Jones has over twenty years experience, extensive training and is a nationally recognized expert in enhancing both the aesthetic features and the natural functionality of the body.
