What is the best age to have a facelift?

A facelift generally has the best results for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. For many individuals, this is when signs of aging- such as sagging skin, fine lines, deep lines, and wrinkles- become most noticeable. A facelift is a great way to look younger and freshen your facial appearance by an average of 12 years! A facelift truly resets the clock. Dr. Ress prides himself on performing facelifts that achieve natural-looking results.   

Better yet, a facelift at [liv]® Plastic Surgery can easily fit into your busy life. Facelift patients can typically return to work within one to two weeks and the gym within three weeks. While recovery times may vary slightly, bruising and swelling usually resolve in two to four weeks. You will see the full benefits of your facelift in two to three months or sooner. 

Dr. Ress is an experienced and skilled facial plastic surgeon with a record of exceptional results and satisfied facelift patients. He and his team are the top choice for your facelift in Boca Raton and the surrounding areas.

How long does a neck lift last?

A neck lift by Dr. Ress at [liv]® Plastic Surgery gets results lasting ten to fifteen years! The skill and expertise of the surgeon performing your neck lift will impact both the results you will achieve and the length of time that those results will last. 

There are a few other factors to consider, especially with the sunny weather here in Florida. The results of your neck lift in Boca Raton can be impacted by sun exposure! This is because sun damage destroys the skin’s elastic fibers. Investing in good skincare and watching your sun exposure will increase the longevity of your individual neck lift. Dr. Ress and his experienced team will ensure you have all the information needed to care for your neck lift and achieve the best and longest-lived results possible.  

What is breast augmentation?
A breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure that enhances the size, shape, and appearance of your breasts. Breast implants are surgically placed to create your desired breast size and shape. Many patients who have received a breast augmentation report improved body proportions, as well as enhanced self-confidence, relationships, and sex life.  
The decision to have breast augmentation is deeply personal. There are many reasons a woman may seek breast augmentation. These are some of the most common:
• Dissatisfaction with breast size
• Loss of or change in breast volume or shape with pregnancy and breastfeeding
• The process of aging impacting breast shape and size
Dr. Ress is a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who performs breast augmentation in Boca Raton. His cutting-edge facility, professional care, and exceptional outcomes draw patients from all over the region. Dr. Ress is also skilled at performing breast reduction and breast reconstruction.
How long does a nose rhinoplasty last?

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, typically lasts a lifetime. If you are looking for a nose job in Boca Raton, look no further than Dr. Ress and his outstanding team at [liv]® Plastic Surgery. Each patient is treated with an individualized approach and the utmost care. 

Choosing an experienced and proficient rhinoplasty surgeon is one of the best investments you can make. Everyone’s facial features are unique. 

Your new nose needs to be artfully designed to fit your face- a nose that looks great on one person may not work on another. 
Once a shape is decided upon, a skilled and experienced facial plastic surgeon must bring it to life. With a documented record of exceptional results and satisfied patients, Dr. Ress is your premier surgeon for rhinoplasty in Boca Raton, Florida

Is it worth getting gynecomastia surgery?
Yes! Gynecomastia can cause poor self-esteem and significant emotional distress. Gynecomastia surgery is also known as male breast reduction and leads to a more attractive and toned chest. Patients who have had gynecomastia surgery at [liv]® Plastic Surgery report:
• Enhanced confidence
• Improved body image- with their shirts both off and on
• Reduction in breast tissue size
• Improved sex life and relationships
Dr. Andrew Russ is the premier choice for gynecomastia surgeons in the Boca Raton area. In addition to providing exceptional results, he specializes in single-incision gynecomastia surgery. This allows for the removal of ample amounts of breast tissue while leaving nearly no visible scarring. One of the best parts of gynecomastia surgery at [liv]® Plastic Surgery is that no one will even know you had one.
What are injectable neurotoxins?
Injectable neurotoxins temporarily and selectively block muscles that are responsible for aging. When injected into a muscle, neurotoxins weaken the muscle’s ability to contract and create a wrinkle. Injectable neurotoxins are commonly used to relax and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, worry or frown lines, and crow’s feet on your face. 
Dr. Ress uses three different types of neurotoxins for cosmetic procedures. Botulinum toxin is the active ingredient found in all three brands, and each brand has slight variances in formulation. At [liv]® Plastic Surgery, we use:
• BotoxⓇ
• DysportⓇ
• XeominⓇ
If you are considering Botox in Boca Raton, keep in mind the experience level and training of your healthcare provider. While you do not need to be a facial plastic surgeon to administer an injectable neurotoxin, board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeons have unmatched training, skill, and knowledge regarding the anatomy of your face and how an injectable will affect your individual complexion. Dr. Ress at [liv]® Plastic Surgery provides the most comprehensive and exceptional BotoxⓇ results. 
How long does liposuction last?
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells and fat deposits. Once fat cells are removed, it is impossible for them to grow back. Liposuction leads to long-lasting results that enhance the contour and proportions of your body. 
Better yet, this cosmetic procedure is relatively painless and has minimal downtime. Dr. Ress at [liv]® Plastic Surgery specializes in two types of liposuction:
• Power Assisted Lipo- Also called PAL. This is your top choice for traditional, motor-assisted liposuction in Boca Raton. A hollow suction tube is used to break up and remove fat. 
• VASERlipo®- Also called Laser Liposuction. This type of liposuction uses cutting-edge ultrasound therapy to smooth out body contours. It boasts exceptional results and a quicker recovery time.
Whether you are interested in power-assisted lipo or laser lipo in Boca Raton, Dr. Ress looks forward to discussing each procedure in greater depth with you. Together, you and the team at [liv]® Plastic Surgery will discuss your goals and help you decide on the best procedure for you. 
What is the difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon?
The terms cosmetic surgeon and plastic surgeon are often used interchangeably, and we at [liv]® Plastic Surgery are happy to clear up the difference.
• Plastic surgery is a broad term describing procedures and surgeons that restore the body’s standard function and appearance. Plastic surgeons may perform surgeries or procedures for elective and cosmetic reasons; they may provide them for medical purposes, as well. Plastic surgeons have skilled and advanced training in facial and body reconstruction that is required after the significant physical damage that may occur with burns, accidents, and other trauma. 
• Cosmetic surgery describes procedures performed strictly for aesthetic and elective reasons; no medical indication or need exists. It is important to note that while cosmetic surgery is a type of plastic surgery, not all cosmetic surgeons are plastic surgeons. 
At [liv]® Plastic Surgery, your doctor is Dr. Andrew Ress- a board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon. He completed his training at world-renowned facilities, including Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, and the Cleveland Clinic.
