Enhancing Your Confidence: Exploring the World of Breast Augmentation

Dr. Milorad Marjanovic

Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon


Dr. Milorad Marjanovic is Board-Certified in both general surgery and plastic surgery, is a fellow in the American College of Surgeons, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. He practices at Center for Plastic Surgery’s location in Hiram, GA. 

In today’s world, cosmetic surgery has become popular for individuals seeking to enhance their physical appearance and boost their confidence. Breast augmentation is one of the most sought-after surgeries among the various procedures available. But who exactly is a suitable candidate for breast augmentation, and why might someone choose to undergo this transformative procedure? 

Understanding Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to increase the size, shape, or fullness of the breasts. It involves placing implants beneath the breast tissue or chest muscles to achieve the desired appearance. 

Who is a Good Candidate?

Individuals with Naturally Small Breasts: Many women may feel self-conscious about having small breasts, which can affect their confidence and self-esteem. Breast augmentation offers a solution by providing a fuller and more proportionate bustline, helping individuals achieve the silhouette they desire. 

Women Seeking Symmetry: Breast asymmetry is a common concern for many women, where one breast is noticeably smaller or differently shaped than the other. Breast augmentation can help create balance and symmetry, restoring harmony to the chest area and improving overall body proportions. 

Mothers Wanting to Restore Breast Volume: Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations can lead to changes in breast size and shape, leaving some women dissatisfied with their post-pregnancy breasts. Breast augmentation can restore lost volume and firmness, rejuvenating the breasts and enhancing their appearance. 

Individuals with Deflated or Sagging Breasts: Aging, genetics, and significant weight loss can cause the breasts to lose volume and sag over time. Breast augmentation can address these concerns by lifting and reshaping the breasts, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance. 

Individuals with Congenital Breast Deformities: Conditions such as tuberous breasts or Poland syndrome can cause developmental abnormalities in the breasts, leading to asymmetry or unusual shape. Breast augmentation can correct these deformities, enhancing both appearance and self-image. 

Why Choose Breast Augmentation?

Enhanced Confidence and Self-Esteem: For many individuals, breast augmentation is more than just a cosmetic procedure; it’s a life-changing experience that can significantly boost confidence and self-esteem. Achieving a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing bustline can empower individuals to feel more comfortable and confident in their skin. 

Improved Body Image: Body image dissatisfaction is a common issue that affects people of all ages and backgrounds. Breast augmentation allows individuals to sculpt their ideal physique, resulting in improved body image and a more positive self-perception. 

Clothing Options: Many women find that having larger, fuller breasts opens a wider range of clothing options, allowing them to wear styles they may have previously felt unable to pull off. Whether it’s swimsuits, evening gowns, or everyday attire, breast augmentation can enhance the way clothes fit and flatter the body. 

Restored Femininity: For some women, breast augmentation represents a way to reclaim their femininity and feel more in tune with their gender identity. Whether addressing the effects of aging, pregnancy, or congenital factors, breast augmentation can help individuals feel more confident and feminine. 

Emotional Well-Being: Emotional well-being is a crucial aspect of our lives, and breast augmentation can significantly contribute to it. The emotional benefits of this procedure extend beyond physical changes, impacting overall well-being and quality of life. Feeling comfortable and satisfied with one’s appearance can lead to greater happiness and fulfillment in both personal and professional spheres, validating the importance of our emotional health in our journey towards self-improvement. 

Breast augmentation is a truly transformative procedure, offering a world of possibilities for individuals seeking to enhance their appearance and improve their quality of life. By understanding who makes a good candidate for breast augmentation and the reasons why someone might choose to undergo this procedure, individuals can embark on a journey of self-discovery and self-improvement. Ultimately, breast augmentation offers the opportunity to achieve the confidence, beauty, and self-assurance that individuals desire, opening doors to a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

Understanding the Bespoke Facelift: Tailored Solutions for Timeless Beauty

Dr. Foad Nahai

Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon


Dr. Foad Nahai, internationally acclaimed plastic surgeon and recurrent recipient of Newsweek’s America’s Best Plastic Surgeon award, specializes in facelifts and aesthetic surgery at MetroDerm’s Center for Plastic Surgery in Sandy Springs.  

A Bespoke Facelift: Crafted Just for You

In a world where every face tells a unique story, aging is a journey as individual as our fingerprints. The Bespoke Facelift recognizes this diversity, offering a personalized approach to reversing the signs of time. Let’s delve into what sets this customized procedure apart and how it can restore your natural beauty with precision and care. 

Understanding the Aging Process

As we traverse the years, our faces undergo a multitude of changes. Skin loses its elasticity, volume diminishes, and the effects of sun exposure become more pronounced. However, aging is not a one-size-fits-all journey. Each individual ages differently, experiencing a unique interplay of factors that shape their appearance over time. 

The Bespoke Facelift Approach

Unlike off-the-shelf solutions, the Bespoke Facelift tailors each step of the process to address your specific needs.  

Here’s How the Bespoke Facelift Works

Comprehensive Assessment: Before embarking on your rejuvenation journey, our Plastic Surgeons conduct a thorough examination of your face. We consider factors such as your facial structure, hairline, and skin condition to devise a personalized treatment plan. 

Precision Incisions: The first step in your Bespoke Facelift journey involves meticulous planning of incisions. By carefully considering your hairline and the contours of your ears, we ensure that any scars are discreet and virtually invisible, preserving the natural harmony of your features. 

Customized Deep Plane Work: At the heart of the Bespoke Facelift lies the deep plane work performed on facial tissues. Through techniques tailored to your unique anatomy, we address underlying structures such as the SMAS and platysma muscle, ensuring optimal results that stand the test of time. 

Facial Volume Management: Loss of volume is a common hallmark of aging. Our approach involves precisely grafting fat to areas where it has been depleted, restoring youthful fullness and vitality to your face. 

Ancillary Procedures: To complement the main facelift procedure, we offer a range of ancillary treatments designed to enhance your results. These may include: 

  • Resurfacing: Whether through lasers or chemical peels, resurfacing treatments rejuvenate your skin, reducing wrinkles, discoloration, and enhancing overall texture. 
  • Lip Enhancement: A lip lift shortens the upper lip, while fat grafts restore lost volume, creating a more youthful and balanced appearance. 
  • Earlobe Modifications: Over time, earlobes can lose volume and elasticity. Our procedures address these concerns, restoring symmetry and harmony to your profile. 

The Bespoke Facelift is a testament to the artistry of modern cosmetic surgery. By acknowledging the uniqueness of every individual and tailoring our approach accordingly, we strive to achieve results that are as timeless as they are beautiful. If you’re ready to embark on a journey to rediscover your natural radiance, we invite you to explore the possibilities of the Bespoke Facelift today by scheduling a consultation with Drs. Foad Nahai and Farzad Nahai. 

Navigating Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery: Key Expectations and the Importance of a Board-Certified Surgeon

Dr. Farzad Nahai

Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon


Dr. Farzad R. Nahai, excels in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, and blepharoplasty. A Castle Connolly and Atlanta Magazine Top Doctor, he offers five-star results at MetroDerm’s Center for Plastic Surgery in Sandy Springs. 

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that aims to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This popular cosmetic surgery can help individuals achieve a more youthful and refreshed look by addressing issues such as drooping eyelids, puffiness, and under-eye bags. For many, undergoing eyelid surgery can lead to increased self-confidence and a more vibrant appearance. 

Choosing a Qualified Blepharoplasty Surgeon

One of the most crucial aspects of undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery is selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in performing blepharoplasty procedures. Board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery ensures that the surgeon has undergone rigorous training and meets high standards of safety and competency in the field of plastic surgery. By choosing a qualified surgeon, patients can have confidence in the quality of care they receive and the outcome of their procedure. 

What to Expect From a Blepharoplasty

Before undergoing eyelid surgery, patients typically have a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations. During this consultation, the surgeon will assess the patient’s eyelid anatomy and function, overall health, and medical history to determine if they are a suitable candidate for the procedure. It’s essential for patients to have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery, as it can improve the appearance of the eyelids but may not entirely eliminate all signs of aging or produce perfection. 

The surgery itself is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can return home the same day. In many cases, eyelid surgery can be performed in the office under local anesthesia, although some patients may opt for sedation or general anesthesia for added comfort. The recovery period varies from person to person but generally involves mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the eyes for a week or two. Most patients can return to their normal activities within 7 to 10 days, although strenuous exercise and activities should be avoided for a few weeks. 

Understanding a Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery 

During cosmetic eyelid surgery, the surgeon makes incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize visible scarring. For the upper eyelids, excess skin and sometimes muscle and fat are removed to create a smoother, more defined eyelid contour. For the lower eyelids, excess fat and skin are often removed or redistributed to reduce puffiness and eliminate under-eye bags. In some cases, the surgeon may also tighten the underlying muscles to further enhance the results or add a peel or laser to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles in the surface. 

How To Achieve Natural-Looking Results From a Blepharoplasty

One of the primary goals of cosmetic eyelid surgery is to achieve natural-looking results that enhance the overall appearance of the eyes without looking overly done or artificial. A skilled plastic surgeon will consider factors such as facial symmetry, skin texture, and the patient’s unique anatomical features to create results that complement their natural beauty. The goal is not to radically alter the appearance of the eyes but rather to restore a more youthful and rested look that harmonizes with the rest of the face. 

Why Blepharoplasty Is America’s Second Most Popular Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a popular and effective procedure for rejuvenating the appearance of the eyelids and achieving a more youthful and refreshed look. By choosing an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified plastic surgeon and understanding what to expect before, during, and after the procedure, patients can feel confident in their decision to undergo eyelid surgery. With proper care and attention to detail, cosmetic eyelid surgery can produce natural-looking results that enhance the overall appearance of the eyes and boost self-confidence.

The Common and Frustrating Problem of Cellulite

In the realm of skin care, cellulite remains one of the most stubborn adversaries for many. It’s like that unwelcome guest that overstays its welcome, no matter how hard you try to bid it farewell. But fear not, for the beauty industry is constantly evolving, presenting innovative solutions to combat this common woe. Enter Aveli cellulite treatment, a revolutionary approach promising to smooth out those dimples and dunes, restoring skin confidence. Let’s delve into this transformative method and explore who might benefit most from its wonders. 

Understanding Aveli Cellulite Treatment 

Aveli cellulite treatment stands out in the skin care landscape for its advanced technology and promising results. Unlike traditional remedies that merely scratch the surface, Aveli penetrates deep into the skin layers, targeting cellulite at its root. The treatment utilizes a combination of state-of-the-art techniques, including radiofrequency energy and vacuum therapy, to break down fat deposits and stimulate collagen production. The result? Firmer, smoother skin with visibly reduced cellulite. 

The Science Behind Aveli – Why Aveli Works

Central to Aveli’s effectiveness is its innovative approach to addressing cellulite. Radiofrequency energy, emitted through specialized devices, penetrates the skin, heating the underlying tissues. This controlled heating not only shrinks fat cells but also encourages collagen and elastin production, essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Concurrently, vacuum therapy aids in lymphatic drainage, flushing out toxins and excess fluids responsible for the characteristic dimpled appearance of cellulite. The synergy of these techniques targets cellulite from multiple angles, delivering comprehensive results. 

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Aveli Cellulite Treatment?

While Aveli cellulite treatment boasts impressive efficacy, not everyone may be an ideal candidate. Understanding who stands to benefit most can help individuals make informed decisions about pursuing this transformative solution. Here are some factors indicating suitability for Aveli treatment: 

Individuals with Mild to Moderate Cellulite: Aveli treatment is particularly effective for those with mild to moderate cellulite. While severe cases may require more extensive intervention, Aveli can significantly improve the appearance of dimpled skin in individuals with less pronounced cellulite. 

Those Seeking Non-Invasive Solutions: For individuals wary of invasive procedures or lengthy downtimes, Aveli offers a non-surgical alternative. With minimal discomfort and downtime, it allows individuals to resume their daily activities without significant interruption. 

Patients Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle: While Aveli can produce remarkable results, maintaining those results necessitates a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and adequate hydration can complement Aveli treatment, prolonging its benefits and preventing cellulite recurrence. 

Candidates with Realistic Expectations: While Aveli can yield dramatic improvements, it’s essential for candidates to maintain realistic expectations. Results may vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, severity of cellulite, and adherence to post-treatment care. Open communication with a qualified Dermatology Provider can help set achievable goals and ensure satisfaction with the outcomes. 

The Road to Smooth, Radiant Skin

Embarking on the journey to smoother, cellulite-free skin with Aveli treatment involves several key steps: 

1. Consultation and Assessment: The process begins with a thorough consultation with a skin care specialist or dermatologist. During this session, the practitioner assesses the patient’s skin condition, discusses treatment goals, and determines suitability for Aveli cellulite treatment.

2. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the individual’s unique needs and aesthetic objectives, a customized treatment plan is formulated. This plan outlines the number of sessions required, treatment areas, and any pre- or post-treatment guidelines to maximize results.

3. Treatment Sessions: Aveli cellulite treatment typically consists of a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart. During each session, the Medical Provider administers the treatment using specialized equipment, targeting the areas of concern with precision. 

4. Post-Treatment Care: Following each session, patients are advised to follow specific post-treatment care instructions. This may include avoiding sun exposure, staying hydrated, and engaging in light physical activity to promote circulation and lymphatic drainage. 

5. Maintenance and Follow-Up: Once the initial treatment course is complete, maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain results. Additionally, periodic follow-up visits allow your Medical Provider to monitor progress, address any concerns, and make adjustments as needed. 

Embrace Confidence – Embrace Aveli Cellulite Treatment

In the quest for flawless skin, Aveli cellulite treatment emerges as a beacon of hope for those grappling with stubborn cellulite. By harnessing the power of advanced technology and scientific innovation, Aveli offers a path to smoother, more radiant skin, empowering individuals to embrace their beauty with confidence.
