Renee Zellweger’s before and after controversy

Celebrities face scrutiny from the public with every move they make, and Renee Zellweger’s recent photographs are no exception. Renee Zellweger had a natural, girl next door quality when she first became famous, and her latest look is a big departure that is unsettling to her fans. Even though she might be happy with her new look, Renee Zellweger fans have an image of her from movies like Jerry Maguire or Bridget Jones, and it doesn’t match up with her current look. Time will tell if the public will get used to her new look.

 

In my opinion, she looks like she has had an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and possibly a forehead lift.  Unfortunately, instead of freshening her up, this surgery  removed that softness around her eyes.  She may also have had some tightening of her face and lifting of her cheeks, possibly with a temporary filler or fat grafting. It is possible to reduce the extra skin of the upper eyelids that worsens with age ( and can even sometimes interfere with good vision) without losing the soft contour.

The best outcome, in my opinion, doesn’t radically change your appearance.  When I talk with patients, I emphasize that cosmetic procedures should result in making you look like yourself, only better.  You want your friends to say you look well rested, not who are you. today.

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day

Many women who have gone through mastectomy are not aware of the options available to them. Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day, or BRA Day, occurs annually in October and is an initiative designed to promote education, awareness and access regarding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. BRA Day USA is a collaborative effort between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons-which Dr. Copeland is a member of, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, plastic surgeons, breast centers, nurse navigators, corporate sponsors and breast cancer support groups.

Breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery is often an important step in a woman’s recovery process—and an extremely emotional one. Dr. Copeland guides the patient through this difficult time, helping her make the decisions necessary to create a beautiful, natural appearance and get on with her life.

Arm Liposuction and Thermage

Arm pit lipo and thermage

Fleshy arms can make a woman look heavy, even if she isn’t. Today, liposuction recontours the body from head to toe, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, breasts, neck, jowls, back, calves, ankles, and knees. New technology gently and quickly removes large amounts of fat and resculpts the body. Procedures are performed in Dr. Copeland’s fully accredited ambulatory surgery facility, with board-certified anesthesiologists who provide twilight anesthesia. Dr. Copeland uses state-of-the-art technology   to remove fat that collects disproportionately in certain areas of the body and a variety of the latest methods including Smart Lipo in different combinations depending on the quality of a person’s fat and the body part that is resculptured.

 

Pictured above is a 28  year old woman before and after arm liposuction and Thermage. New and improved Thermage®, a non-invasive (no incision!) treatment, tightens skin, renews facial contours, and stimulate your body to make healthier collagen—the building block that provides skin structure. The procedure uses radiofrequency technology called ThermaCool® that has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew facial contours. Fast and easy, Thermage requires no downtime from normal activities and unlike laser treatments, Thermage can be performed on patients of all skin types. Thermage is used for sagging facial, neck, and eyelid skin and also all over the body including flabby arms, hands, and legs.

Don’t let sweat get in the way

Are you embarrassed by wet armpits, clammy hands and feet?  Well, you are not alone.  Hyperhidrosis,  a condition where you produce much more perspiration than you  need to keep your body cool, affects more than a million people in the US alone. We all sweat – but when heavy sweating causes embarrassment and changes the way you live your life, it may be time for action. Fortunately, this is a situation we can now treat effectively with BOTOX®.

My patients often suffer from difficulty in social situations and tell me that excessive sweating significantly interferes with their daily activities. A treatment made famous for fighting wrinkles can also provide relief for this uncomfortable condition – BOTOX®.  BOTOX® injections block the chemical signals sent from the nerves that control sweating, an essentially safe solution for excessive perspiration. The substance relaxes muscles associated with the sweat glands – a positive effect on a patient’s quality of life.

Back to school skin doesn’t have to wear you thin

Almost as if the summer passed by with the blink of an eye, back to school time has returned in full swing! The perfect time for new wardrobes and clean attendance slates, it is also the time for pimples and acne to develop, just as stress levels and workloads will.

A pimple starts when the pores in the skin become clogged with a type of oil called sebum, which normally lubricates the skin and hair. Acne is common during puberty when hormones go into overdrive, causing the skin to overproduce sebum.

If you are suffering from acne, you’re not alone! Eighty percent of people experience at least one bout of this highly visible condition between the ages of 12 and 24. Of course, it isn’t only limited to the teens. Acne is not uncommon in later years, due to hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, use or discontinuation of birth control pills, and menopause.

The good news is that normal acne is very treatable with the right skin-care regimen, and that is where we come in. Dr. Michelle Copeland, renowned New York plastic surgeon, recommends these products for the treatment of acne.

Start with a basic regimen of cleansing and toning twice daily, followed by Advanced Acne Solution - once or twice a day. The first step to healthy skin begins here. For flare ups and acne spots, treat affected areas with:

Advanced Acne Solution - Remove excess oils and help control breakouts! – Perfect for teens and adults

  • Contains powerful azelaic acid, salicyclic acid and BSF (balanced sebum formula) for resistant acne

Blemish Corrector & Intensive Acne Spot Treatment - Formulated to dry and clear acne & blemishes reduce the appearance of  discoloration in both teens and adults.

  • Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract and Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract to promote clear, glowing skin,
  • Morus Alba Root Extract (Mulberry) and Licorice Root to help brighten and even skin tone and
  • PVP to help form a film to help seal the area, creating a smooth, even finish

Honey Almond Scrub - A weekly skin exfoliator with soothing honey promotes cell rejuvenation - leaves the skin feeling healthy and purified.

Clay Mask - Gently cleans pores and improves skin radiance with powerful antioxidants including lipoic acid, vitamin C and zinc for cell renewal without irritation.

Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Formula - A powerful brightening formula  with kogic acid, thyme and arbutin helps reduce the appearance of brown spots, sun spots, scars, under eye circles, and other discolorations without the use of irritating hydroquinone.

Great feedback from a patient

Dr. Copeland did my rhinoplasty, chin inplant, and neck lipo for 15k in 2008. She did a really good job. In fact she did such an amazing job that no one believes me when i tell them what i had done to my face. My new nose is symmetric (which is what i asked of her) and it looks natural. This women is experienced and definetly has “gifted hands”. Great job, pricey but worth it.
