How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?

How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?

How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?

You’ve spent a lot of time looking at various plastic surgery cost options, comparing reputable surgeons throughout your region, and making lists of all the reasons you should just go for it. But one thing always prevents you from setting the appointment: the cost. Whatever your reasons for wanting or needing plastic surgery, it’s a big decision. Truly it’s important to think about all the reasons why you may or may not benefit from the plastic surgery itself, but if you can’t afford the cost then it’s impossible to take that first step. This one aspect can keep many people from achieving the look that they desire.

“There are a lot of plastic surgeries centers in Miami that are very inexpensive plastic surgeries and you have to wonder what they are cutting on to do surgeries at that price. When every other plastic surgeon is significantly more expensive. What you can find is that the quality of surgery and care after is not that good.” – Dr. Wigoda

Typical Plastic Surgery Cost

Various plastic surgeries can cost wildly different prices. It all depends on what part of your body you want changed, how drastically you want it altered, and how much your plastic surgeon charges for their services overall. Here are a few popular plastic surgery choices and their price ranges to give you an idea of how much they each generally cost.

Liposuction: $4500-$7500
Liposuction is a surgery typically conducted on individuals with stubborn fat areas. It is a procedure that involves “sucking” out fat from common problem sites such as the thighs, buttocks, arms, and stomach. The fat can also be transferred to the buttock (Brazilian Butt Lift) or even the face to make the cheeks and/or lips fuller.

Breast augmentation: $4500-$6500
Many women struggle with having too-small breasts or breasts that are asymmetrical. Breast augmentation can be done in a number of different ways, but generally it includes surgically inserting an implant (saline or silicone gel) into the breast in order to enlarge and balance it out.

Nose job: $5500-7500
Sometimes genetics or bad accidents might land you with a nose that doesn’t look quite right. This surgery involves changing the shape of the nose so that is it more symmetrical with the face. It can drastically change the way someone’s face looks. Those that have difficulty breathing through their nose can sometimes be helped as well.

Tummy tuck: $6500-8500
Tummy tucks are great for people who have lost a lot of weight, had a baby, or experienced something else that would lead to having too much sagging stomach skin. This plastic surgery involves trimming the excess skin, tightening the abdominal muscles to flatten the belly, and removing excess fat so that the stomach looks tighter and more youthful.

Making Plastic Surgery Cost Affordable

Perhaps during all of your researching and planning you discovered that there are ways to finance your plastic surgery, but it’s more likely that you didn’t know. There are numerous options that can help you achieve the body that makes you feel the best without stressing your bank account. Often plastic surgeons have financing options available in their office for your review, so be sure to ask during a consult.

Shopping for Plastic Surgery Costs is a Mistake:

“One of the biggest mistakes I see patients make is shopping for plastic surgery based on price. Here in South Florida there are many plastic surgeons and a lot of non-plastic surgeons doing plastic surgery. It’s legal here. You can be a gynecologist, family doctor, or brain surgeon and decide you want to do plastic surgery. The problem is they aren’t really trained to do it. They can take a weekend course, however a board-certified plastic surgeon spends years not only learning how to do plastic surgeries, but also how to take care of problems when there is one.” – Dr. Wigoda

Affordable Financing Options in South Florida

If you live in Florida or the region surrounding, you’re in luck. Dr. Paul Wigoda, not only offers innovative and high-quality surgical services, but he also offers a few plastic surgery financing options. These options include:

  • Care Credit: allows patients to charge approved medical procedures to a credit account. Usually this option also includes a period of no interest, allowing the person to pay for their procedure without incurring extra charges.
  • Global Check: offers plastic surgery financing that allows you to pay back the loan within 90 days without interest.
  • Prosper: a business that allows companies to connect with you to offer you the best rates and loan terms.

Dr. Wigoda recommends you apply for financing before your appointment so that you can be sure that your surgery will be covered. You can read more about it on his DrWigoda.com.

If you’re unsure about whether or not you should just go for the plastic surgery of your dreams, visit Dr. Wigoda’s website to learn more about the various innovative plastic surgery options that he offers including the cutting edge but non-surgical PRP services like the O-Shot, P-Shot, and Vampire Facial. Once you’ve decided on a plastic surgery service, contact one of the financing companies above to see if you can qualify to have the surgery covered.

Make sure to book your free plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Wigoda today.

Plastic Surgery Research, Reviews, and Reputation

Florida plastic surgeon reviews Dr Wigoda

It’s no secret that plastic surgery is increasing in popularity thanks to celebrity influencers such as Kim Kardashian and reality shows like Botched; however, not all plastic surgeons deliver A-list results or critically acclaimed reviews. The American Society for Plastic Surgery reports that Americans spent over 13.5 billion dollars on combined surgical and nonsurgical procedures in 2015, up 13% from the previous year. Overall, the number of plastic surgery procedures have increased by 39% in the last five years.

Plastic Surgery False Confidence

The increase in plastic surgeries might indicate an equal increase in confidence about plastic surgeons; however, this isn’t always the case. There are still a number of precautions that must be taken when selecting a plastic surgeon and deciding on a specific type of plastic surgery procedure.

Really Botched: A Plastic Surgery Procedure Gone Wrong

One Miami woman tells a story of her experience that should make us all think twice before choosing a plastic surgeon without doing the research first.

Crystal Heath, a work-out fanatic, went to Dr. Omulepu for liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift. She lost more than 100 pounds and wanted to reward herself with a plastic surgery procedure.

“I had lost a lot of weight and in the process, I lost my butt as well,” Heath said.

Heath went under the knife for a butt lift on February 15th, but the doctor ended up giving her a tummy tuck instead.

She scheduled a butt enhancement surgery with a plastic surgeon who was known for his “Brazilian Butt Lift” surgery, and went in for the plastic surgery procedure. Unfortunately, when she woke up, she found herself having undergone a tummy tuck instead. Additionally, she was treated very poorly and ended up in the hospital with numerous infections. Luckily she survived, but was traumatized from the experience.

You Don’t Have to be a Kardashian: Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

Some plastic surgeons do not secure the proper certifications that make them competent surgeons. These certifications ensure that physicians receive the proper training and help raise confidence levels for patients. This gives them security knowing that their doctor is well-trained and qualified. If you are considering going under the knife, it is important that you choose a plastic surgeon that has proper certifications and licenses, with a trustworthy reputation.

Positive Plastic Surgery Reviews Help You Choose

While the stories of plastic surgeries gone wrong are everywhere, one place you won’t find them is in Dr. Paul Wigoda. He has taken the time to ensure that he is not only competent, but is also excellent at making sure that people are treated very well. One can see from the vast number of positive testimonials that he is well respected, has comforting bedside manner, and takes his job very seriously.

In contrast with the story of the traumatized Cathy Heath, who vowed never to have another cosmetic procedure again, consider this online review by a satisfied plastic surgery patient:

“In picking a Cosmetic Surgeon for the first time around I made a deadly mistake. I chose another doctor in Miami Beach that I knew on a social level and almost lost my life. Red flag number one! A surgeon should be judged on skill, experience, bedside manner and especially compassion. And Dr. Wigoda has all that, plus more. I was lucky enough to have Dr Wigoda brought in on my case. Not once but twice he has saved my life! I definitely give him a rating off the charts!!!!”

It’s important to make sure you choose a doctor who will treat you well AND is qualified.

Drwigoda plastic surgery google reviews

Online reviews and social media sites such as Google+ have made it possible to research and educate oneself. When considering permanently altering your body, take the time to know who you’re entrusting with your life. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wigoda prides himself in his technique, compassion, and education as his five-star reviews indicate:

Karoline L.:

“Four years ago I had a breast augmentation with silicone implants and I absolutely still love my breasts. I went from a B-Cup to a D-Cup and can’t express how thrilled I am about this procedure. Dr. Wigoda did an absolutely amazing job to keep my breasts looking natural, and my scars are hardly noticeable. He is a great Dr. He listened to my wishes and concerns, and took his time to carefully inform and advise me about my procedure. Even post-op he made sure my recovery was going well and took his time to address any questions I had afterwards. I am very happy to have had my surgery done with Dr. Wigoda and would do any other surgeries with him in a heartbeat.

I also chose Dr Wigoda for my Juvederm lip augmentation and Botox injections. He injects just the right amount to have my lips looking plump and gets rid of the crow’s feet, yet I am still looking natural.”

Vincent Burburan:

“Was able to watch some of his work as a student. I have watched/shadowed a lot of doctors, however he left an everlasting impression on me. Doctor Wigoda is a master of his craft, very professional, and has great bedside manner. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good Plastic/Reconstructive surgeon, as well as a hand surgeon!”

A Google User:

“Dr. Wigoda is the best! Last year after a significant weight loss, I decided to go for liposuction and breast augmentation procedures, I had them both done at the same time. I will never regret my decision as I feel great with the way I look now and I am motivated to maintain my weight down. It never crossed my mind that at 54 I was going to feel and look better than ever before in my life. Dr. Wigoda and his staff were amazing, I will always refer my friends and family to him!!”

Rachel Weissler:

“I truly relied a lot on the testimonials online when I was searching for the right surgeon to do my breast augmentation. I’m happy to now be able to contribute to those testimonials! Dr. Wigoda and the whole staff were amazing throughout the whole process. I get so many compliments, and I love being able to brag about how painless the experience was… :)”

Brandy A:

“When I finally decided I was going to get implants, I did all the normal online research and narrowed it down to Dr. Wigoda and two others. After three consultations I decided to go with Dr. Wigoda because I have two little ones. The “painless implants” were a HUGE plus and he was the only one that really took his time during the consultation. He went over options with me, the different sizes and profiles and seemed genuinely interested in making sure I could get the look I wanted. The other two were great, but they seemed like a generic consult where they just went over the risks and basics like they do with everyone who comes in. The personal attention made me feel a lot more confident. From there on out everything was super easy! They were able to work with my schedule and get me in pretty quickly. During the pre-op appointment we finalized sizing and they made sure every question I had was answered.

The day of the surgery I got to the office at 8 and by 8:15 the anesthesiologist was doing his thing. A couple hours later I was up with a new set of big and beautiful breasts. The procedure went smoother than I could have hoped for. I went home and was able to rest with minimal discomfort. From the time I got home through the next three days there was a lot of pressure and tightness. It was uncomfortable, but never painful. I was able to stay home and watch my four-year-old the very next day without a problem and was completely off pain meds by the 4th day. I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical about the whole “painless implant” thing, but not once through the entire process would I have ever considered myself to be in pain. Pressure and tenderness, but never pain.

I’m three weeks post-op now and am in LOVE with my breasts. I couldn’t have asked for a better job, doctor or staff =)

*on a side note, the office manager Marie is super nice! Every time I had a question, she had an answer. She was really good at walking me through everything that needed to be done and made things as easy as possible. I’m also one of those people who get SUPER nervous at doctors and actually get shaky. She went above and beyond the day of the surgery to keep me calm. =)”

Natalia H.:

“I always wanted breast augmentation and researched doctors between Broward and Miami for several months before I selected Dr. Wigoda. His reviews and his resume were the most impressive and when I went in for my consultation, I saw just how affordable the surgery was. Dr. Wigoda was very personable, professional, and knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions as did Marie at the front desk. He detailed all of the risks and benefits of both saline and silicone implants and asked plenty of questions as to what type of look I was going for. Dr. Wigoda and Marie were very meticulous in making sure I followed all the proper pre-op procedures to minimize risk of any complications. My goal was to have natural-looking implants. I went from a small B-cup to a full D-cup and my breasts look AMAZING! That was almost 7 months ago and I couldn’t be happier. I would not only recommend him, I would definitely go back for any other surgical procedure.”

Making the Right Choice in Plastic Surgery

It can be scary to consider going through plastic surgery, especially when you’re putting your life in someone’s hands that you probably don’t know very well. You should always do your research before choosing a plastic surgeon. Dr. Wigoda has made it easy to read or watch reviews from his past patients, through proudly posting the various life-changing notes that he receives on his website. If you’re looking for a trustworthy plastic surgeon with an excellent reputation, who will also help you get through the process painlessly, look no further than Dr. Wigoda.

Priapus Shot (P-Shot): Dr. Paul Wigoda Helps Men Bring Their Sexy Back

Ft Lauderdale Priapus Shot aka P-Shot- Dr. Paul Wigoda, MD Helps Men Bring Their Sexy Back

Is the P-Shot (Priapus Shot) the answer for men to get their sexy back? Advanced technology allows expert physicians to offer men solutions for a variety of sexual challenges. Dr. Paul Wigoda offers a treatment that uses cells from your body to transform the look and function of your penis. The P-Shot uses platelet-rich plasma taken from your body, then injected into the parts of your penis where it will be the most effective.

You are not alone; sexual dysfunction impacts up to 50% of men. But regardless of the degree of dysfunction, the P-Shot can have both immediate and long-term results.

For years, we’ve heard that it’s a frustrating condition that men of all ages deal with at some point in their lives, but especially, as they age. Perhaps it’s not erectile dysfunction that you struggle with but instead have felt frustrated by a lack of penis size or a shape you just don’t like. Penis issues are incredibly frustrating and embarrassing. Finding solutions can be even more challenging.

The P-Shot “Up” Side

You’ve probably heard about Viagra or other erectile dysfunction medicines. But have you heard of the Priapus shot (also known as the P-shot)? Medicine can be helpful, but they often bring with them a number of unpleasant side effects. For some people, this sometimes makes the whole point of taking the medicine not worth it.

So what is the alternative? An innovative treatment that uses your own cells to transform the performance of your penis. The P-Shot uses platelet-rich plasma taken from your body, using a proprietary technique, the growth factors are extracted from your blood and concentrated into the PRP. The PRP is then injected into areas of the penis that are most important for sexual response. Don’t worry, the injection sites are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before it is injected, so you can enjoy a painless treatment. It is then processed in the office, creating the product needed for the treatment.

What To Expect from the P-Shot?

95% of men treated experience successful results.*

Unlike many of the other treatments for male sexual dysfunction, the P-Shot is a stress-free non-surgical treatment. The Priapus Shot can be done in such a way so that certain areas of the penis are enlarged or enhanced. It can also help with premature ejaculation and can increase sensation, while improving sexual performance. The platelet-rich plasma stimulates the tissues in the penis, causing them to grow and rejuvenate. You might not be able to turn back the clock, but you can sure feel like it!

If you’re already taking Viagra or another medicine to help with erectile dysfunction and other issues, you can combine it with the P-Shot for a powerful effect. The P-Shot will allow your tissues to regrow in a youthful way, while the medicine you are already taking can magnify the entire process. You may not have had impressive results with the medicine alone, but just wait until you’ve had the P-Shot procedure done. You are certain to be satisfied with the outcome.

High Performance and Provider Limited

This is a patented product and procedure, so you won’t be able to go to any healthcare provider or doctor to have it done. Don’t forget to do your research because to do the non-surgical procedure a doctor must be specially trained.

If you are in the Fort Lauderdale area, Dr. Paul Wigoda offers this non-surgical and regenerative treatment to his patients with impressive results. He has been specially trained to administer the procedure to men who are suffering from all sorts of penis problems. There is also another version for women called the O-Shot, in which PRP is injected into a woman’s clitoris and vagina.

You can read more about the P-Shot and O-Shot on his website. Be sure to call or request an online appointment to schedule a free P-Shot consultation. Perhaps it’s time that you found the solution that you’ve been looking for and gain your sexy back in the bedroom.

Lifts Lead the 2016 List, Patients Choose Painless Breast Lifts


DrWigoda Infographics (2)

While the popularity of plastic surgery is nothing new, 2016 is shaping up to be the year of the breast lifts, actually all lifts. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) just came out with a report of all the plastic surgery trends from 2015. What leads that report? You guessed it: breast lifts and even better- painless breast lifts. Other procedures are still just as popular, but lifts are seeing a huge surge in numbers.

Dr Wigoda Plastic Surgery Stats Infographic

No More Sag – Thanks to Breast Lifts

At the top of the lift list is no surprise. Breasts! Plastic surgeons such as board-certified Dr. Paul Wigoda have seen an increase in interest in not just breast implants but also breast lifts. They’re so popular that he offers both surgeries as a pair. That’s right, not only can you change the size of your breasts but you can also make sure they’re pointing in the right direction. The ASPS states that breast lifts have increased 89% since 2000. Better surgical options like the painless version Dr. Wigoda offers could be responsible for that increase.

Bigger, Minus the Pain

Surgery techniques are changing quickly. This means better options for plastic surgery. Breast augmentation is more popular now than ever. Skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Wigoda have created innovative ways to increase your bust size without leaving you in pain during your recovery. He actually specializes in a painless breast implants, which makes the option even more appealing both men and women. Check out the story of one of Dr. Wigoda’s patients through the journey as celebrity, co-host on the 97.3 HITS morning show with DJ Laz, Kimmy B shares her story from one hour before plastic surgery to one hour after surgery to one week after to 3 months later.

 

The Year of the Rear – Butt Lifts Shape Up

Butt Lifts Stats Dr Wigoda

Next in line for popularity is the buttock lift. Trends are heading toward bigger butts, and the popularity of the buttock lift and augmentation shows that. You no longer are limited to only implants. Now plastic surgeons can also rearrange your body fat to create a curvy backside with plastic surgery procedures like the Brazilian Butt Lift.

This means you get to lose that belly, back, arm, or thigh fat and have it taken to your rear instead. Brazilian Butt Lifts can drastically transform a flat or saggy behind into something J. Lo or Kim Kardashian would be proud of.

Beauty Without the Knife

 

There are plenty of non-surgical options for those who are squeamish or just want a quick pick-me-up. Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) leads that list with an increase of 759% procedures since 2000! Other options include fillers (up 274%), chemical peel (up 14%), and microdermabrasion (up 8%).

Plastic Surgery for Men

Perhaps surprising to some, men are asking for more and more plastic surgery too. Last year, for the first time ever, 40% of the breast reductions performed were on men, also known as Gynecomastia. This means more guys are overcoming the stigma of plastic surgery and showing up to fix those issues that have bothered them for years. Since some men struggle with a genetic predisposition for breast shapes that are more feminine, this plastic surgery procedure is a great option to help them regain (or maybe gain for the first time) a look that makes them feel more confident.

Feel Beautiful After Cancer

More women are turning to breast reconstruction after mastectomy. The ASPS launched a campaign in 2012 to make more women aware of their surgical options. Since 2000, breast reconstruction surgeries have increased by 35%. After making it through such a painful ordeal such as cancer, breast reconstruction can help cancer survivors women empowered again.

Everyone has to make the right choice for their health and situation, but luckily there are now more choices than ever. Whether you want a minimally invasive surgical procedure done, something more drastic, or somewhere in between, there is an option that is a good fit for you. Thankfully, plastic surgeons have also created new, innovative plastic surgery techniques that can enhance your body shape without the pain.

Maybe the growing popularity of painless breast implants and lifts tells us one thing: people like them. If you want to see how you can have breasts that make you feel good, schedule a free consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Wigoda.

Hair Loss Hope: Dr. Wigoda’s Treatment Uses Platelet Rich Plasma

hair loss studio scalpReceding hairlines and bald spots are no fun. Good news is here for millions of men and women suffering from hair loss thanks to an innovative treatment using platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your very own blood. As seen on The Doctors, The Dr. Oz Show and ABC; the latest breakthrough in thin hair treatment using a person’s own blood and trademarked the Studio Scalp Hair Growth Procedure is offered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda.

“The Studio Scalp Hair Growth Procedure is a natural and organic way of using a patient’s own blood to naturally stimulate hair growth,” said Dr. Wigoda. “My Fort Lauderdale-based plastic and reconstructive surgery center also offers non-surgical services such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) procedures, a new technique that uses a patient’s blood platelets to stimulate new cellular growth while also restoring and rejuvenating the areas treated including facial, sexual wellness and hair loss.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Disease, genetics, stress and hormonal imbalance are the main culprits, but others include:

  • Styling hair products that can cause breakage
  • Ponytail or braided hair styles that pull the hair
  • Too much or excessive shampooing, combing or brushing hair
  • Thyroid disease
  • Childbirth, major surgery, a high fever or severe infection or even the flu
  • Lack of protein or iron in the diet, and especially eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia
  • Prescription drugs for heart, depression, gout and  even birth control pills
  • Ringworm (on the scalp), a contagious fungal infection mostly with children
  • Cancer treatments such as radiation therapy and chemo
  • Alopecia areata, a hair loss that can happen at any age where hair falls out in round patches.

The Emotional and Psychosocial Impact of Hair Loss

Hair loss can cause a devastating emotions that can negatively impact the quality of life in both men and women. Studies on its psychosocial impact show that:

  • Hair loss negatively impacts self-esteem, body image, and self-confidence.
  • Hair loss leads to depression, lowered self-image, and declines in enjoyable activities and social engagement.
  • Women are more negatively impacted by hair loss compared to men due to societal pressure to be attractive.

Hair Loss Hope: Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Regeneration

Dr. Wigoda implements Studio PRP’s innovative, regenerative medical therapies and techniques using platelet rich plasma. Through new technology, he offers this permanent, effective and organic solution to hair loss. Once it is injected into the scalp, PRP therapy stimulates growth in dormant hair follicles as well as in existing ones. PRP then penetrates the dermis, which leads to increased blood flow and the resulting hair growth.

This non-surgical hair regrowth strategy is a safe and effective way to restore hair loss using platelet rich plasma. The groundbreaking procedure injects PRP into the scalp, which encourages hair growth. The PRP addresses both male and female pattern hair loss.

How the Hair Regrowth Procedure Works

The regenerative hair regrowth treatment takes 90 minutes to complete and takes place in the following three steps:

 

  1. A blood sample is obtained and processed to create the PRP.
  2. A local anesthetic is then administered to numb the scalp area that will be treated.
  3. PRP is then combined and administered via injections either over the full scalp or in a localized treatment form.

After the Studio Scalp Procedure

The recovery from the procedure is typically simple, as the resulting pain is easily managed through medication like ibuprofen. Some mild forehead swelling may occur one or two days after the injections. This completely normal reaction usually resolves within two days after the procedure.

Patients are free to wash their hair twelve hours after the procedure and there are no noticeable effects or downtime required as a part of recovery.

New hair growth will likely occur in about two months post-procedure and become more evident in four to eight months. This growth will continue up to a year after the treatment, allowing the results to remain for up to two years without additional treatments.

Why Dr. Wigoda’s Studio Scalp is the Solution for You

Both men and women will benefit from thicker and shinier hair as a result of PRP hair regrowth. The procedure is comfortable, effective and you will be back to work the next day. After undergoing the Studio Scalp regrowth treatment, you will be on your way to a fuller head of hair.

Whether you are suffering from male or female pattern hair loss, hypotrichosis, alopecia or metabolic causes, Dr. Paul Wigoda is here to help.

If you or someone is considering any kind of hair regrowth treatment or another PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) procedure such as the Vampire Facelift, O Shot, or Priapus Shot contact Dr. Wigoda now for a free consultation.

Vampire Face Lifts: Put Your Own Blood To Work

Vampire Facelift Plastic Surgery Dr Wigoda Ft Lauderdale (1)

From Dr. Oz to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda, the red hot wrinkle buster is the Vampire Facelift. Behind the scenes in Hollywood everyone is whispering about the Vampire Series, a cosmetic procedure that uses your own blood to smooth wrinkles. The Vampire Series uses the growth factors found in the blood to activate the so-called unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.

The Vampire Facelift®

Ding, ding, ding! We now know why it’s called Vampire Series! The Vampire Facelift is a very simple yet effective strategy for rejuvenation. In essence, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity. Dracula would die for this procedure!

PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most useful natural treatments in aesthetics. An all natural solution to create younger skin that glows with vitality — sign us up, Dr. Wigoda!

Is the Vampire Series It For You?

There are 3 steps to a Vampire Series procedure:

1. Creating a beautiful and natural shape:
First, Dr. Wigoda uses Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler in a clear-cut (pun? Nah — no knives needed!) way to sculpt a younger, natural appearing face. After creating a beautiful shape to fit you best, he then harvests from your very own blood (hence the Vampire-esque name) growth factors that the body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.

2. Isolating and activating the magic from your blood
Your blood can keep the wrinkles away! Dr. Wigoda will draw your blood, then isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP). Time’s-a-ticking? This technique only takes about 10 minutes!

3. Injecting the secret formula into your face
Because we all love a little painless procedure, numbing cream and a very small needle are used to inject growth factors back into your face with the Vampire Series. These growth factors then play a little mind game. They trick your multipotent stem cells into thinking there’s been an injury, and voilà! New younger tissue should thus be generated.

It’s important to note that the cosmetic procedure isn’t for everyone. Many would do better with plastic surgery or other non-surgical procedures. Dr. Wigoda offers a variety of procedures, including medical facials and facelifts. If you don’t think taking a Vampire approach is for you, check out his other plastic surgery procedures.

Plastic surgeons such as Dr. Wigoda encourage you to speak with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, read reviews, and ask the right questions to assure which plastic surgery procedure is the best fit for you.

If you or someone you know is considering any kind plastic surgery procedure (surgical or non surgical), contact Dr. Wigoda now for a FREE plastic surgery consultation!

If you’re in Fort Lauderdale, then that would be board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda, who helps women get that spark back in the bedroom with the O-Shot ®. It’s for good reason: they need it!  An estimated 50% of women are experiencing some degree of low libido and dysfunction and more than 30% have difficulty reaching orgasm. Yikes!

Bedroom Bar Menu: O-Shots for All

Wondering how you can get that big O back? Get a shot. And no, we’re not talking about shots of tequila, ladies. Finally, a shot you can look forward to! When most women hear the word ‘shot,’ they cringe (who doesn’t?). We’ll fill you in on one of the industry’s best kept secrets: the O-Shot®.  

Plastic surgeons everywhere (Dr. Wigoda included, of course) are helping patients find the wonder of the O-Shot ®. The best news? It’s a nonsurgical treatment! It uses drawn blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system. How better to increase orgasm than to do it with your very own blood? By allowing more blood to flow to the organ, it enhances sensitivity and delivers dramatic improvement in sexual function. All of the medical talk aside, this procedure will have you feeling better than ever. Don’t believe us? Take it from one of the hundreds of patient testimonials.

Hit Me with your Best O-Shot

How does the O-Shot® work, you ask? With the help of your blood. Similar to the ever-popular Vampire Series, the O-Shot® begins with a simple blood draw. The blood is then separated and concentrated into PRP (platelet-rich plasma) that is injected into the ever-so-important downstairs area. The effects of the procedure can be known to begin almost immediately (score!).

Give Your Booty a Lift with the Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Wigoda Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Brazilian Butt Lift plastic surgery procedure is quickly becoming one of the most sought after procedures in plastic surgery! All over the world, the skinny slim look that was once coveted in women is being replaced with a full, healthy figure. Especially in South Florida, where as we shared with The Sun Sentinel earlier this year, a big rear end is a positive thing, (thanks to Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj.)

So how does a Brazilian Butt Lift work? What are the In’s and Out’s? Is the plastic surgery procedure right for you? We are going to walk you through what you can expect if you decide to add a little more junk in your trunk!

Lift Your Butt To A New Level!

“The backside is now at the front of everyone’s minds.” As Dr. Wigoda’s blog post regarding the popularity of butt lifts so accurately states! Do you want to know more about the big booty basics? Dr. Wigoda is here to explain what you can expect from this popular plastic surgery procedure!

Dr. Paul Wigoda Case Study: Before and After Brazilian Butt Lift

7 Tips on What to Expect from the Brazilian Butt Lift

  1. The butt lift enhances the size, shape, and appearance of the buttock using the patient’s own fat cells.

  2. The Brazilian Butt Lift plastic surgery procedure will lift the buttocks to a higher position, add volume, enhance its shape and firmness, and accentuate the body’s curves.

  3. It’s important to note that this procedure is NOT an implant and looks and feels incredibly more natural than an implant. While implants use to be the only way to gain a fuller and more voluminous backside, medical advances have switched to the fat transfer method. This method has been proven to be safer, and more practical.

  4. The fat is obtained through liposuction, typically of the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and/or upper arms. The ideal candidate has enough excess fat in these areas such that there is enough fat to enhance the buttock.

  5. You may be asked to GAIN WEIGHT before the procedure in order to have enough fat cells to transfer (that’s right, all the ice cream and pizza you want!)

  6. The Brazilian Butt Lift not only enhances the size and shape of the buttock, but reduces the excess fat in all areas that are liposuctioned (gain a butt, lose some of that stubborn thigh fat, win-win right?)

  7. The incisions made for both the liposuction and the reinjection of the fat are quite small and often hidden. Scars are usually minimal with this plastic surgery procedure.

3 Tips to Safely Lift That Butt

We already know from our 2015 What’s In What’s Out list that Brazilian Butt Lift’s are rapidly gaining popularity. With the end of the year fast approaching, maybe a Brazilian Butt Lift will be added to your 2016 list! That being said, it is important to take note of these three tips before choosing a plastic surgeon….

  1. Research. Make sure to research your plastic surgeon! Brazilian Butt Lift is popular today because surgical techniques have drastically improved which give plastic surgeons the ability to consistently achieve great results. Make sure your plastic surgeon is using tested and true techniques! You may have to pay a little more, but your
    health is always worth the price.

  2. Read Testimonials and Reviews. Remember past patient’s testimonials tell the truth, believe what you read and read plenty from multiple sources and sites!

  3. Always Ask Questions. This is one of the most important points I cannot possibly stress enough. Never feel like any question is off the table! This is your body and you are in control of what happens to it! Any good surgeon will be patient and understanding and take the time to answer everything you ask.

Vaginal Rejuvenation: Is It Time For A Touch Up Down There?

dr wigoda

Can you believe that According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of patients undergoing labiaplasty, or surgery to trim the lips of the vagina, rose 49 percent from this year to last year. Which begs the question, when is it okay to consider vaginal rejuvenation? Is it time to tidy up your downstairs?

Board-certified South Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda, MD’s labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation plastic surgery procedures, are quickly becoming a popular subject of controversy among women and plastic surgeons. Women in today’s society are under constant pressure to conform and mold to societal expectations for how their bodies are suppose to look and respond. With this increased pressure as well as advances in medical technology, it’s no wonder procedures like these are becoming increasingly more popular.

5 Health Reasons for Rejuvenating The Vajayjay

While some argue procedures such as labiaplasty and vaginal tightening are simply plastic surgery procedures, plastic surgeons argue that they can also be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as sexual dysfunction and damage to the vaginal canal from pregnancy. Some other common health reasons for fixing up your vajingle (we are rapidly running out of names for vagina, hang in there) are:

  1. Bowel or urinary tract issues
  2. Trouble keeping in tampons
  3. Internal and external stretching causing pain
  4. Decreased sensation of friction
  5. Incontinence

Make sure you speak to your plastic surgeon if you have any of these issues, and see if labiaplasty or vaginoplasty can either lessen your pain or get rid of it altogether!  Surgeries such as this, according to Dr. Wigoda, are often “safe, effective, and relatively quick.”

Another important thing to remember if you have any of these issues is that they are not uncommon, and many women of all different shapes and sizes go through the exact same thing! There is no need to be embarrassed or ashamed girl, trust me, I’m more embarrassed writing this than you are reading it!

Is Purely Plastic Surgery Right or Wrong?

Now this is the area where the debate gets tricky, is vaginal rejuvenation for cosmetic purposes okay? Is it okay to glam up your kitty cat just because you want to look fabulous?  With society constantly injecting this idea of what is “normal” is it okay to get a plastic surgery procedure just to improve the aesthetics of your vagina? After all, breast augmentation such as Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implants, can be a purely aesthetic surgery that is continuing to gain popularity among women today!

Dr. Wigoda and many other surgeons say “YES!” As long as it is your choice and you firmly believe vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal tightening can increase your happiness, confidence, or even sexual gratification, that is a completely valid option. Remember you are in control of your own self-image! Find a plastic surgeon that is dedicated to making you feel the most comfortable and confident version of yourself!

Plastic surgeons such as Dr. Wigoda encourage you to speak with an experienced plastic surgeon, read reviews, and ask questions to assure which plastic surgery procedure is the best fit for you.
