Plastic Surgery: Rhinoplasty Patient Shares Her Journey On Instagram

Rhinoplasty patient opens up about the process of plastic surgery.

Jenny knew she wanted a nose job (otherwise known as rhinoplasty) before she was even a teenager. The 26-year-old healthcare professional from Miami decided after graduating college that she now had time to have the procedure. While she was hesitant to share details of other plastic surgery encounters she’d had previously, this time around she wants to share her story and help others who might be seeking similar procedures.

How One Patient Shares Searched and Found Her Answers Using Instagram

Jenny’s Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgeon Search

Jenny started her plastic surgery research where most people do, on Google. And in Miami, there are a lot of “plastic surgeons near me.”

She filtered them through by thoroughly looking at websites, researching if plastic surgeons were board certified and scouting for reviews of the surgeons.

She finally landed on Paul Wigoda, MD, who has been named one of America’s top surgeons by the Consumer Research Council of America, and who prides himself on pioneering the technique ‘painless breast implants.’

While she had a plastic surgery consultation with a plastic surgeon when she was a teen, Jenny wasn’t quite ready to take the leap at a young age. This time around, her only plastic surgery consultation was with Dr. Wigoda himself.

Instagram and Plastic Surgery

During her quest to seek plastic surgery, Jenny would look up hashtags on Instagram like #rhinoplasty or #nosejob. She searched out stories from real experiences to understand what the process would be like.

“As I did my searches for plastic surgeons, I also looked for, you know, real-life experience, with you know, having a rhinoplasty, and that’s how I ended up on Instagram because I would just search by hashtags.

She wanted to know what she was getting herself into. And she did. Pages with people sharing their stories of bruises and blood – the ugly side of plastic surgery – showed up in her searches. “It’s not a simple before and after,” she said.

And that’s what inspired Jenny to share her own process on her own Instagram feed. She even started a countdown before the rhinoplasty.

“I was hesitant about it because my nose was always my biggest insecurity…but I’m like, you know what this nose is going to be gone very soon so let’s do this,” she said about deciding to share her rhinoplasty plastic surgery journey on social media.

Jenny previously had a breast augmentation, but never discussed her procedure. “Although I never discussed it, there were some people that noticed, and they would actually ask me about it behind the scenes.”

 

Before, During, + After Rhinoplasty

This is what convinced Jenny to start talking about the good, the bad, and the ugly about her rhinoplasty. She wanted to be a source of knowledge and experience people could go to if they had questions. She wanted to give back like other Instagrammers had done for her when she was curious of the truth behind a “nose job.”

The Before

Dr. Wigoda kept her in the loop about everything.

While she doesn’t like needles, Jenny said she always felt safe.

“I was in good hands, I felt comfortable. Scared, but comfortable.”

And Dr. Wigoda prepped her for the after too – like keeping frozen peas around.

The After

Jenny didn’t have any pain, just discomfort. Her bruising went away quickly, and other than occasionally waking up, she was able to sleep.

“It was a rough recovery but they gave me everything I needed to make it as smooth as possible,” Jenny said about Dr. Wigoda.

Her cast came off eight days after surgery.

“Once that cast comes off on day eight, I was like here we go, like nothing happened. So it was nice, it was nice to just be able to go back to work and people weren’t like, “Hey what happened to you?” Jenny said.

Her Advice to You

Do a lot of thorough research. That’s Jenny’s number one advice.

Living in Miami, she said she hears a lot of stories of surgeries going wrong. She advises to not go to a doctor just because you hear a lot about them and instead rely on your own independent research.
She also advises making sure the plastic surgeon is board-certified and qualified.

Her last piece of advice is to seek out any bad reviews of doctors, especially if those reviews concern safety. She said she purposefully looked for bad reviews of Dr. Wigoda, but never found anything that jumped out at her.

Plastic surgery is a controversial subject that most people feel uncomfortable talking about. But with the rise of social media and people like Jenny sharing their plastic surgery stories, it’s easier and easier to understand that these procedures are safe and life changing so that everyone can feel beautiful in their own skin.

Dr. Wigoda Shares 🔥 Hot 2017 Plastic Surgery Trends

2017 Plastic Surgery Trends
2016 was a big year for comebacks and everyone was working the old trends in a fresh way like playing Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo NES, sporting crop tops, and buying chokers… Now in 2017, we’re looking forward to seeing what resurfaces! Luckily terms like ‘phat’ are still out but when it comes to 2017 plastic surgery trends “fat” is definitely in!

Many patients come to Dr. Wigoda’s surgery center seeking liposuction for problem areas like their belly or thighs and are surprised to learn that they can use the fat removed from those procedures to help rejuvenate other areas on their body. While these areas may not have been a high priority originally, it’s ideal to do both plastic surgery procedures at the same time because once the fat is removed you can’t save it for reuse later.

You may not have considered using liposuctioned fat for fat transfers before but there are a few reasons Dr. Wigoda thinks this plastic surgery trend will be hot in 2017! Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body but there are few that would warrant a fat transfer. These are some of the top ones!

Butt I hadn’t thought about that…

2016 was also a big year for rounder, fuller bottoms but did you know you don’t need butt implants to save a figure that may be falling or flat?

A Brazilian butt lift is an augmentation procedure that uses fat from liposuction to fill and reshape the butt cheeks and outer hips to help address sagginess, asymmetry, and more. The combination of removing fat from other areas like the abs, back, and thighs and adding it to the buttocks creates a more sensual and sexy appearance, not just from the back, but from the front and sides as well.

Fat + Facelifts = 😊

When it comes to facelifts, most people scoff at the idea of transferring fat because it seems counter-productive. You want to tighten the skin and muscles, not make your face rounder, right?

Wrong!

Combining fat transfers with face and neck lifts can actually make patients look even more rejuvenated and youthful. Faces typically thin with age and with decrease in weight and you may even lose fat through atrophy. Facelifts on their own don’t necessarily bring that back but when fat transfers are added to cheeks, nasolabial folds and marionette lines in addition to traditional facelifts, they create an even more youthful appearance.

Whether or not one of these 2017 plastic surgery trends are on your to-do list, why not call Dr. Wigoda for a free plastic surgery consultation? It’s a new year, let’s renew you.

The Best 10 Questions to Ask at a Plastic Surgery Consultation

top-10-questions-to-ask-your-plastic-surgeon

Once you’ve decided that you want to do a plastic surgery procedure, the next step is to try to find a qualified plastic surgeon that you feel comfortable with. Your choice of plastic surgeon is the most important and the most difficult decision you will be making. Whether you find out about them through advertisements or personal referrals, it is crucial that you ask the right plastic surgery questions.

The following is a short list of 10 questions you should ask at a plastic surgery consultation. If you notice any red flags or feel anything but confident in the responses, consider looking elsewhere for your surgery.

10 Questions to Ask at a Plastic Surgery Consultation:

 

1. Is the plastic surgeon a fully trained plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?

Physician must complete four years of medical school, at least three years of a general surgery residency, and at least two years of a plastic surgery residency through fully accredited programs to become a plastic surgeon. This is a very important decision so do your due diligence and be sure they’ve completed all of the above and have history under their belt.

Rather than become a private investigator to get your answers, one of the best ways to make sure the plastic surgeon meets those requirements is to check that they’re board certified which includes a written and three-day oral exam given by many of the national leaders of plastic surgery around the country. You want your surgeon to be board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to ensure they have the qualifications you require.

2. What type of residency program did your plastic surgeon graduate from?

Although they sometimes are, the terms “plastic surgeon” and “cosmetic surgeon” are not interchangeable and, unfortunately, any physician can claim to be the latter even if they’re not trained as a surgeon at all. Anyone with a medical degree is legally able to perform plastic surgery and claim to be a cosmetic surgeon but that includes physicians trained as gynecologists, dermatologists, oral surgeons, and more. You do not want them to perform your surgery as a botched job can lead to poor results and the need multiple corrective surgeries.

3. Where is the surgery being performed and have there been any serious complications at the plastic surgery site?

Make sure that patient safety is a priority wherever your surgery will be performed. Serious injuries or deaths may result from plastic surgery and there have been many more deaths at busy discount centers than in surgery centers owned by the plastic surgeon. Don’t just ask if there have been any problems in the center you are going to, research it. Once you’ve researched if the cosmetic surgery center has had any serious complications, check who owns it. You should look for centers are owned by physicians, not businesses so your safety is a top concern and in the hands of qualified individuals.

4. Is your plastic surgeon employed by a cosmetic surgery center or work for themselves and what percentage of the fee does the plastic surgeon get?

When cosmetic surgery centers are owned by non-physicians, the owners hire plastic surgeons who need extra work and will settle for minimal compensation which may require them to do more surgeries per day and the procedures may be rushed and results compromised. As an employee, a physician often has little control over the schedule, over safety measures, quality control, etc. whereas a self-employed surgeon has the ability to make all of the decisions regarding the care of their patients.

5. Does your plastic surgeon have staff privileges at a local hospital or only a transfer agreement?

Licensed physicians should have staff privileges in at least one local hospital and if they do not, you need to ask why. First and foremost, ensure that their privileges were not revoked because that is an immediate red flag. Also, be sure they have staff privileges and not just a transfer agreement. If there is an emergency, you want to make sure that your surgeon can continue caring for you as they know your history and background and that you would not be passed off to a  different physician.

6. How many surgeries are scheduled on the day of your surgery?

The biggest mistakes are made when a surgeon is rushed as plastic surgery requires patience, concentration, and stamina. If the day’s schedule is very busy, a surgeon can be hurried or distracted even if they felt like they have plenty of time between procedures. Be sure that your surgeon limits the amount of surgeries on any given day so that they can give each patient, namely yourself the attention they deserve. You do not want to be fourth or fifth surgery of the day or even the first if your physician has many more cases to go.

7. Are you feeling pressured to sign up and do the prices keep fluctuating?

Have you ever made a decision very quickly only to find out that there was a better alternative out there? That should never be the case with something as major as plastic surgery! While corrective surgeries are not uncommon in this field and Dr. Wigoda performs them regularly, they often are more tolling than the initial procedure and require even more care. Don’t let someone talk you into a procedure and pressure you into signing up that day to receive a discount. If you do sign with the first plastic surgery center you meet, give yourself a few weeks before going under the knife so you have more time to meet with your surgeon and ask any questions you need. Beware of discounts or fluctuating prices.

8. Are you choosing a plastic surgeon or a center?

When you call to schedule an appointment for a consultation, make sure you are you told which surgeon you will see. Better yet, research the surgeons and tell them who you want to meet with. Depending on their schedules, cosmetic centers may assign a plastic surgeon based on availability, not who is the most qualified for your plastic surgery procedure. Furthermore, make sure the plastic surgeon you meet with for your plastic surgery consultation is the same plastic surgeon who will be performing your plastic surgery.

9. Does the center use surgical assistants to complete part of the procedure?

Busy centers that need to finish your surgery quickly often employ surgical assistants to help the surgeon and you may not have the ability to research these assistants as in depth as your main surgeon. It is unlikely that the center will admit that anyone besides your primary plastic surgeon is doing the procedure, so the answer to question six about how many plastic surgeries are planned in a day may be a clear indicator of the answer to this question. Really, how else can one plastic surgeon to do that many cases daily on a regular basis?

10. Has your plastic surgeon or center ever faced any disciplinary actions?

Find out if your surgeon or their center has ever been A) disciplined by the Board of Medicine or had their license suspended which you can research online here or B) been sued. Unfortunately, patients may be disappointed with their results if they were not well educated on what to expect so the fact that a doctor has been sued, settled, or lost a case does not necessarily mean they were at fault, however, multiple lawsuits or settlements should raise a red flag.

Be sure to print and take these ten questions to your plastic surgery consultation along with any other pieces of information you may have to ensure you have the safest plastic surgery procedure with the best possible results. If you’re not 100 percent confident with the responses, take your time and consider alternative plastic surgeons until you find the right fit.

To help save you time, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda has already answered these plastic surgery questions.

Top 5 Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Top 5 Plastic surgery for men

Men are overcoming the sexist stigma of plastic surgery and are opting for procedures to fix issues that have bothered them for years! Last year, for the first time ever, 40 percent of the breast reductions performed were on men. They want to enhance their exterior appearance to more closely match interior ideals. And, just as for women, plastic surgery for men may be medically beneficial, mentally vital, or simply satisfying.

Fort Lauderdale board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda has been doing plastic surgery for men and women alike for over 17 years and has found that plastic surgery for men has been steadily increasing. In 2015, these were the top five plastic surgery procedures men had requested:

1. Liposuction

Dad bods may have been the “it” thing for a while, but trends fade and so can the fat. Let’s face it, sometimes those last few pounds can be stubborn and the older you get the harder you need to work to maintain your fit figure. Liposuction allows patients to sculpt problem areas and help them to show off their progress. The plastic surgery procedure itself has been around for more than 30 years and becomes more and more common every year, lately even more so in men! Liposuction can be used to slim hips and thighs and flanks, flatten the abdomen, eliminate a double chin, and more but liposuction for men is most popular for the belly, love handle, and chest areas.

2. Rhinoplasty/Nose Surgery

In films, it may not be as frequent as rhinoplasty for women but don’t let that fool you, nose jobs for men are almost as common in the real world. Even Hollywood’s finest actors have considered and even gotten nose surgery to help them fix a feature that they weren’t 100 percent confident in. Household names like Zac Efron, Ryan Gosling, and Ashton Kutcher have had minor work done to enhance the face’s most prominent feature. Maybe there was an old injury that didn’t heal right or something minor like a bump, flared nostrils or asymmetry that you wish you could change. Nose surgery, also known as Rhinoplasty, doesn’t have to be extreme to make a big difference, and minor alterations like adjusting how the nasal tip droops, plunges or is enlarged in general can have a huge impact on the overall look of the nose.

3. Eyelid Surgery

A simple yet dramatic way for men to instantly improve their looks and become more confident is eyelid surgery. Many times people judge their appearance as a whole and don’t realize that a key feature may be the culprit, or that something so simple as your eyes can make such a huge impact on how people see you. If you have lower-eyelid puffiness, dark circles or drooping upper lids, others may assume that you are fatigued, angry, or unhappy. However, when your eyes are bright and alert, you appear energized, well-rested, and in control. Eyelid surgery can remove excess or loose skin, reduce puffiness and fine wrinkles in the upper and lower eyelids and, in some cases dark circles.

4. Gynecomastia aka Male Breast Reduction

Much like those last few pounds of stubborn fat, gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs,” can be present through no fault of your own and may be nearly impossible to tone no matter how hard you work out. An estimated 40 to 60% of men have extra fat and or glandular tissue in one or both breasts and there is no known cause in the majority of cases, but that doesn’t make men feel any less self-conscious about having it. Male breast reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes the excess tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases your plastic surgeon can remove excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. The results of the Gynecomastia are significant and permanent!

5. Facelifts and Neck Lifts

Forty is the new 30 and who says 60 can’t be sexy? Some of the most visible signs of aging first appear on the face and sometimes the way we look on the outside does not reflect the energy and youthfulness we feel on the inside. If you’d like to look as good as you feel, aface or neck lift can remove years and give patients a firmer, fresher look. Not ready for the full plastic surgery procedure yet? You’re never too young to start. Facelifts may seem to turn back the hands of time but for best results in the future, it’s important to do regular maintenance before it’s necessary. The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical option that is similar to injecting fillers (think Botox) but puts your own blood to work!

There are multiple options for all of these popular male plastic surgery procedures but for best results, the key to a successful surgery is to research and trust the judgment and experience of the plastic surgeon doing the procedure. To discuss your plastic surgery options book your free plastic surgery consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda today!

Breast Implants Safety: 8 Things Your Plastic Surgeon Should Never Say [INFOGRAPHIC]

One of the top three questions new patients have during their first breast implant consultation with Dr. Paul Wigoda is “are breast implants safe?” While breast implant safety is an understandable concern, plastic surgery has evolved so much over the past 15 years and advances in the techniques and technologies have made the procedure more precise and safe making patients even more confident in expert board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Wigoda. Patients should be concerned about breast implant safety – in fact, we would be concerned if they weren’t – but expert plastic surgeons should also be able to offer peace of mind by making the patient more knowledgeable on the procedure and ensuring that the plastic surgery procedure is both safe and reliable.

8 Things Your Plastic Surgeon Should Never Say To You

To ensure your plastic surgeon has patients’ safety and concerns front of mind, do your homework and use both the internet and your free breast implant consultation as a way to interview the plastic surgeon. Ask them about topics like breast implant surgery risks, breast implant safety and cancer, and breast implant leaks and make sure that you are confident in their answers and they match the research you have done. If the plastic surgeon brushes off those questions and it make you uncomfortable or concerned in any way, they may not be the right doctor for you.

As you research for the right plastic surgeon, make sure they meet the following requirements:

  • Certified. Make sure your plastic surgeon is board-certified plastic surgeon
  • Safety. Work in an AAAASF accredited surgery facility
  • Authentic. Make sure your plastic surgeon is 100% up front with you about lawsuits or, better yet, have never had any;
  • Results. The plastic surgeon you pick should have past patient reviews

If a plastic surgeon does not meet one or more of these requirements, that should raise a red flag immediately.

A plastic surgeon who does not have the proper certifications, has lawsuits, cheap prices and limited to no patient reviews should make patients more concerned about their breast implant safety. Additionally, make sure the plastic surgeon is someone you are comfortable with and that they ask you about pre-existing conditions and have plenty of questions for you as that will indicate that safety during and after the breast implant procedure is equally important to them.

It’s OK to be concerned about breast implant safety but if you have found a reputable plastic surgeon, they are guaranteed to have the experience, skills, and tools to perform a safe, breast augmentation procedure. If you have any questions regarding this popular procedure or would like to schedule a free consultation to learn more, contact Dr. Paul 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:

“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. =)”

“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.”

How the O-Shot Gave Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Plastic Surgery Patient Her Groove Back

Orgasm Shot O Shot Benefits

The orgasm doctor will see you now. 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!).

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.
