Planning ahead is a good idea especially if an event is three weeks out. If you have that time to spare, one thing to look into is a chemical peel. It will renew your skin and give it a wonderful luminous glow.
Again, it’s important to time this chemical peel about two to three weeks before the party.
Cosmetic injections are typically done about 7 to 10 days before an event. These great treatment procedures will lessen the appearance of fine lines, help reverse imperfections, plump up the skin, and give you an overall well-rested appearance.
Botox is a highly sought after cosmetic injection around the holiday season. It works extremely well in smoothing away frown lines and also fine lines around the eyes.
Another highly popular cosmetic injection is the filler named Juvederm. It helps lessens the appearance of nasolabial folds, otherwise known as “parenthesis around the mouth.”
A topical numbing cream is used to make these treatments more comfortable.
And these injections offer wonderful results, giving you a more refreshed appearance.
If you are also in search of a great skin care line, Dr. Bolitho’s office has an elite inventory such as MyBody and Environ.

Dr. Bolitho, a board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego and also the current Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, is an advocate for patient education.

While Touch MD provides educational information regarding procedures and treatments, it offers a great service to the patient in terms of their potential procedure.

On the touch screen, you can point out areas would like to see aesthetic improvements.
On the flipside, Dr. Bolitho can also use this touch screen and sketch on it. These markings can range from how Dr. Bolitho will move forward in terms of your surgical procedure, or offer a range of ideas in how to address an aesthetic wish.
For Dr. Bolitho, Touch MD provides optimal education. The more well-versed a patient is regarding a procedure, the better.

New Study Reveals How Body Contouring Procedures Increase Long-Term Weight Management Following Gastric Bypass
Post Bariatric Body contouring surgeries have accelerated over the years due to the growing number of gastric bypass and other bariatric procedures.
Following a dramatic weight loss, many patients seek a board certified plastic surgeon to consult with regarding excess skin removal.
Dr. Bolitho, a board certified plastic surgeon in San Diego, and also the current Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, has seen an increase of post bariatric body contouring surgeries in his own practice.
Common areas of these surgeries include:
A study conducted by Dr. Ali Modarressi along with his colleagues at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, revealed some promising results. And these findings were included in a recent edition of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, a medical journal overseen by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
In the study, Dr. Ali Modarressi and his associates claimed, “We demonstrated that patients with body contouring present better long-term weight control after gastric bypass.”
The study included monitoring 98 patients who underwent gastric bypass, and after reaching their weight loss goals, body contouring surgery. The typical patient dropped 100 pounds in 2 years. In the other group, 102 patients only had bariatric surgery.
The numbers revealed that those who underwent a body contouring surgery gained roughly one pound every year, while those without the surgery gained an average of 4 pounds per year.
Monitoring patient test groups after 7 years, it was discovered that patients who had body contouring surgery gained back 4 percent of their original body weight prior to surgery, while gastric-bypass only group regained 11 percent.
Researchers did make calculations for excess skin removal weight for those who did have the cosmetic procedure.
The research team went on to say that due to their evidence, post bariatric body contouring surgery should shift away from a cosmetic surgery viewpoint.
In their study, they wanted their peers to know, “Since plastic surgery after massive weight loss is mandatory for quality of life improvement and weight loss maintenance in many patients, body contouring must be considered a reconstructive surgery for those who have achieved massive weight loss.”

E-cigarettes have grown in popularity in the United States since its European introduction back in 2008.
Also called vaping, e-cigarettes is being viewed by some as an alternative to traditional tobacco cigarette smoking.
Although “health research” is still being conducted on e-cigarettes, there seems to be a growing trend of vapers.
With that being said, many are wondering if the rules of stopping traditional smoking prior to plastic surgery also applies to e-cigarettes.
According to the American College of Surgeons, traditional cigarette smoking does increase complications both during and following surgery. It’s their estimation that following the “no smoking rule” a few weeks prior and after surgery lessens the risk of wound healing by half.
It appears that a couple of the main “postsurgical recovery” culprits to tobacco smoking are carbon monoxide and nicotine.
While carbon monoxide robs oxygen away from tissue, nicotine constricts blood vessels which deliver oxygen and nutrients to the tissue area. This blood flow is vital to the healing process.
If the percentages in oxygen and nutrients drop during the recovery process, there is a risk factor following surgery in areas such as infection, increased chance of scarring, and additional complications.
While e-cigarettes don’t have all the ingredients that traditional cigarettes contain, the e-liquids used in these vaporizers may have nicotine ingredients.
These e-liquids come in a variety of flavors, but they also may have a range of pharmaceutical grade nicotine levels up to 24 mg or more.
Essentially, these e-cigarettes can deliver nicotine levels through vaping. And although it’s derived from an e-cigarette, the nicotine can still compromise the blood flow that is needed following surgery.
Many e-liquids contain nicotine, yet, there are some that are nicotine-free.
However, it’s important to be candid with your doctor as to whether or not vaping non-nicotine e-liquids are advisable.
Your plastic surgeon has your best interest at the forefront and will provide you with the excellent guidelines you need for a successful surgery and optimal recovery.
Tummy tucks, also known as abdominoplasties, remain a popular surgical procedure to redefine and slim down your silhouette.
While all surgeries have the potential for risks and side-effects, successful tummy tucks are performed every year.
During your consultation and preoperative appointment with Dr. Bolitho, he will not only describe the surgery, but will also discuss the possible risks with you. These risks may include infection, poor healing and blood clots.
While most patients don’t have these complications, Dr. Bolitho will still gladly address any concerns you may have to be certain you feel comfortable in understanding the surgical procedure.
Dr. Bolitho is a board certified plastic surgeon based in La Jolla and also the current Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla.
Also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Bolitho encourages patients to do their homework in finding a board certified surgeon. It’s also important to learn as much as possible about an abdominoplasty procedure in terms of the surgery, recovery, and any possible complications.

Those with hand injuries either due to degenerative issues or birth defects are thankful regarding the surgical advances in hand surgery.
This type of surgery restores function and appearance, offering patients new possibilities.
Dr. Bolitho, a board certified plastic surgeon based in San Diego and also the current Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, has undergone extensive and comprehensive training to treat an array of hand medical challenges, such as:
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Dupuytren’s contracture
Carpal tunnel syndrome remains a common condition in where some patients find relief through medication and lifestyle changes.
However, those who consider a surgical procedure to correct carpal tunnel syndrome, typically do so after trying medical recommendations such as anti-inflammatory medications and splints which show no real improvement.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can make daily tasks difficult and possibly cause you to turn away from the special activities that you enjoy.
Those with carpal tunnel syndrome often complain of the following symptoms in their hands and fingers:
Carpal tunnel syndrome is present in women more than men and usually manifests between the ages of 30 to 60.
While some who have this syndrome may have been born with a small carpal tunnel to begin with, others may be prone to it by making repeated hand and wrist motions.
The surgery to correct carpal tunnel syndrome releases the excess pressure on the median nerve.
One surgical technique to treat carpal tunnel incision is a traditional incision from the center of the palm to the wrist. The compressed tissue affecting the nerve is then surgically addressed. Another popular method is called an endoscopic carpal tunnel release. This procedure utilizes a surgical endoscope or microscope which lessens the length of the incision.
Hand surgery may help those who have a particular disease of their wrist or fingers which causes them pain, discomfort, weakness, and functional limitations.

When a woman celebrates her mid forties, she may begin to notice facial skin changes such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, loss of collagen, and a lackluster glow.
Although each person’s skin ages differently, the main culprit for premature skin damage comes from unprotected sun exposure.
The good news is that an anti-aging skin routine will help.
Dr. Bolitho, a board certified plastic surgeon based in La Jolla, offers a friendly and informative destination for skin care. He and his skin savvy team can help guide you on a non-operative regimen to help turn back the clock.
Dr. Bolitho’s office offers an array of choices such as:
As far as Dr. Bolitho is concerned, he believes that Retin-A is one of the primary agents that has been shown in studies to help reverse the effects of facial sun damage. Like any topical, it must be used on a regular basis to achieve those optimum results.
While a flurry of Retin-A products can be purchased anywhere, the most effective are those prescribed by a physician. The potency of Retin-A raises the bar in terms of results.
When it comes to skin care products for an anti-aging regimen, all products are not the same.
Finding the right line may take some time. Dr. Bolitho offers an elite skin care inventory such as MyBody and Environ which remain popular sellers. A well-rounded skin care inventory should include:
• Non-soap cleanser
Chemical peels, such as a series of Trichloroacetic Acid Peels (TCA), help smooth away fine lines, lessen the appearance of age spots and other pigmentation issues, and promote collagen.
Some patients prefer to use their prescribed Retin-A product for a period of time prior to their chemical peel for better results.
Cosmetic injections also offer an effective rejuvenation pathway. Botox and Juvederm fall under these categories.
Botox reduces frown lines and surface wrinkles around the eyes. For nasolabial folds, also known as parenthesis around the mouth, Juvederm can help plump up those areas. Both cosmetic injections can offer natural looking youthful results.
Dr. Bolitho and his support team will provide you with top products, skin care services, and excellent advice when it comes to keeping your skin healthy and beautiful.

While Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to an end, breast health is something that should be a part of a woman’s life every month. Remaining proactive about your breast health can make a positive difference.
Dr. Glynn Bolitho, a board certified surgeon, Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, and member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has performed numerous breast reconstruction surgeries.
He believes that a woman’s care requires a team approach of medical experts. And Dr. Jay Orringer, a fellow ASPS member agrees.
Orringer provided an important media clip to ASPS a couple of weeks ago which is located below. He was the plastic surgeon who Angelina Jolie picked to perform her breast reconstruction after her bilateral mastectomy earlier this year.
Dr. Orringer conveyed he was impressed in how Jolie publically told her “story” because it was important for all women to hear. The care Jolie received from a team of experts, he said, should be available to all women. Dr. Orringer has stepped into the media spotlight spreading this important message to offer women more empowerment and hope with the help of ASPS.
He also pointed out how the role of a plastic surgeon is an important member of the team. A team of experts typically involves a breast surgeon, oncologist, radiologist, and a plastic surgeon.
This “team of experts” offers valuable guidance for women faced with a high family risk of breast cancer, tested positive for the genetic screening, or a breast cancer diagnosis which may require a mastectomy.
Jolie’s surgeon calls the “team approach” an essential part of healing and moving forward after breast reconstruction. For a woman seeking breast reconstruction, a plastic surgeon’s medical advice is important at the very beginning stages to help a woman regain a sense of wholeness once again.
“After being diagnosed with breast cancer and deciding on a bilateral mastectomy, I was so lucky to have a team of experts which included Dr. Bolitho,” said Christina, a breast cancer survivor from San Diego. “I am so happy that Angelia Jolie’s doctor is sharing this important message so all women can receive the medical care and the options regarding breast reconstruction surgery that they deserve.”
