One of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery among both women and men is liposuction. It is a great way to reduce areas of stubborn fat and recontour the body into a more attractive shape. While it is not a weight loss procedure, it can help patients drop a clothing size or two and feel more confident in their body. The best liposuction candidate is someone who is already at or near a healthy, stable weight, although in some cases liposuction can help provide the motivation to kick-start a healthy lifestyle change.
Dermal fillers have become incredibly popular in recent years, as non-invasive cosmetic technology improves and fillers become more targeted and precise. While treatment with dermal fillers cannot take the place of a facelift, they can be used for a wide variety of subtle corrections and rejuvenation.
If you want to reduce stubborn pockets of fat and obtain a better body contour, liposuction can be a great option. However, not everyone is a candidate for liposuction; some people may benefit more from a tummy tuck, or may need to get to a stable and healthy weight before undergoing liposuction for best results. Take our quiz below to see if you may be a good liposuction candidate.
The short answer is no. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and the amount of fat removed is not sufficient to result in a significant drop in pounds. However, the point of liposuction is not weight loss - it's body contour. Often, our Baltimore lipo patients can drop a full clothing size and look much slimmer despite not actually losing weight.
Breast augmentation is the most popular type of plastic surgery procedure in America, yet many people have misconceptions about it. Breast augmentation can be highly rewarding, leading to better self-image as well as better fitting clothes and a renewed sense of femininity, so we've put together this list debunking some common misconceptions.
The neck is one of the main "tells" of a person's true age. Many men and women take great care of their face, but their neck doesn't get the same attention. As a result, the neck starts to show signs of age sooner than the face. A neck lift can help you restore a beautiful, youthful neck. Take our quiz to find out how much you really know about the neck lift procedure!

Summer is almost here, and many men are thinking about taking a vacation, going to the pool or the beach, and going out more at night since the weather is nice again. All of these activities, however, require going out in public, and some men may not feel that self-confident in their body or face. Going swimming, in particular, may get a man thinking about his love handles or beer belly.
