How to Treat Facial Asymmetry

Facial asymmetry is a cosmetic condition in which the features of the face are not symmetrical. In this article, we are going to discuss facial asymmetry and how various cosmetic procedures can help treat the condition.

What is Facial Asymmetry?

Facial asymmetry is a condition in which the two sides of the face do not match (in other words – they’re not symmetrical). Asymmetry of the face can be caused by a variety of factors. Perhaps you were born with eyes or ears that are slightly different sizes. Other patients experience partial paralysis of the face that can cause drooping and other causes of asymmetry.

Correcting your facial asymmetry can give you more confidence, make you look younger, and help you feel better about yourself. So how does one go about correcting facial asymmetry? There are several available options.

Facial Asymmetry Treatment Options

The appropriate treatment method for your facial asymmetry will largely depend on the specific details surrounding the asymmetry. What particular facial feature is causing the asymmetry?

Whatever the case, you should always consult with a trusted facial plastic surgeon before making any treatment decisions. A plastic surgeon can fully evaluate the extent of your facial asymmetry and recommend treatment options that are best for your specific situation.

hCG Medical Weight Loss – Get a Clean Start

The hCG medical weight loss program is a tried and true method that has helped thousands of people successfully lose weight using a combination of diet and hormone therapy. Here’s how the program works.

The first step is to have a doctor perform a preliminary assessment to gauge your overall health and to ensure you are a good candidate for the program. If your physician determines that you qualify, you will begin receiving weekly hormone injections.

Over the following weeks you will have weekly check-ins with you doctor. At these appointments, your doctor will administer hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) injections to reduce hunder and metabolize fat.

In addition to the hCG injections, you will have to follow a calorie-controlled diet. The program comes with comprehensive meal plans and shopping guides to help you buy and prepare healthy foods.

The Many Uses of Botox

Botox is best known as an aesthetic treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, but that’s far from its only use! There are, in fact, several other uses for Botox that most patients are unaware of. In this article, we are going to talk about the many uses of Botox – from cosmetic treatments, to migraine headaches, and more!

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Of course, the most common use of Botox is for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Botox essentially relaxes tense muscles – which helps facial wrinkles to dissipate. Botox is one of the most tried and true non-invasive treatments for reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

Migraine Headaches

Botox can also help reduce migraine headaches. As mentioned above, Botox helps reduce muscle tension. When injected into the temples, patients can experience a reduction in migraines for months at a time, as the Botox works to halt the muscle tension that causes migraine headaches.

Sweating

This is a weird one, but yes Botox can also help reduce excessive sweating. If you have overactive sweat glands in your palms, armpits, or elsewhere – Botox injections can help reduce sweating to normal levels. This is a great way to avoid embarrassing amounts of sweat and feel your best at all times!

Kim’s Journey with HCG Medical Weight Loss – Part 4

Note: this is part of a continuing guest blog series about Kim’s journey with HCG medical weight loss. Read Kim’s other entries here:

HCG – Week 1 of Phase 3

I have now been off HCG for 12 days and I’m really enjoying getting to eat a larger variety of foods. My greatest challenge thus far is eating enough. I have been keeping it pretty basic, simply adding a few new meats like salmon and lean pork as well as vegetables like broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Things have been going well. I have maintained my weight and only cheated once when I ate 2 small low carb tortilla chips and guacamole. I then switched to dipping pork rinds in my guac. Delicious and no carbs! Note: must be eaten in small quantities.

I’ve also increased my activity and I feel amazing! Running is much easier on my joints and I have been slowly increasing my weights at the gym. I have so much energy, and my sleep has been very restful. Overall I feel great!

FOOD!

Buffalo cauliflower roasted in the oven. This will be a new go-to family favorite.

Flank steak and BBQ Brussel sprouts.

What I didn’t eat – frosted brownie

 

If you think you need a change and want something to jump start your weight loss, post below or send a private message. This program is worth it, it has simple rules that when followed yield great results.

Summer XEOMIN Special!

What is XEOMIN?

Frown lines are formed when the facial muscles form expressions. Over time, these repetitive expressions can cause long-lasting frown lines. XEOMIN is a prescription neurotoxin that blocks the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions in the face. In turn, this has the effect of softening frown lines.

XEOMIN is a highly purified neurotoxin created using a precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the accessory proteins that aren’t necessary in treatment.

Kim’s Journey with HCG Medical Weight Loss – Part 3

Note: this is part of a continuing guest blog series about Kim’s journey with HCG medical weight loss. Read Kim’s other entries here:

As I near the end of the fourth week (27 days on HCG) I reflect back on all the things I’ve accomplished, what I’ve learned, what skills I’ve gained, and the 25 lbs of weight I have shed! I’m also at the point that I am transitioning to the next phase of the diet. The diet is not over. I REPEAT – IT IS NOT OVER. The next 6 weeks I will be without the HCG shots and need to eat to maintain my weight within 2 lbs of my weight this morning (calories increase at this point in the diet). To be honest, this task seems more challenging to follow than the strict 500 calorie diet. There are more choices where I can make mistakes. However, I am committed. This portion of the plan helps set a new weight and metabolic level for you so you can keep the weight off long term. I will continue with updates to both give insight into this part of the plan over the next 6 weeks, both for my personal accountability and to shed light on successes and challenges I face for the “stabilization process.” Wish me luck. What I am most excited about in this phase is more food and getting back to exercise!

Here are a few of the foods I have made over the last week or so. I plan to keep to the same eating plan, while increasing my calories to my basal metabolic rate. Slowly I will add in different veggies, fruits and dairy as well as nuts and meats. What I’m most excited to eat is avocado! I also plan to continue my food journal. This has been the best way to keep me accountable.

My go-to spicy chicken burger with fat free cottage cheese “ranch” with a cucumber lettuce bun. The plan says not to mix veggies but I have a few times and didn’t  have issues.

Strawberry picking was a fun family outing that was HCG friendly! They tasted really good.

Ultra lean sirloin tip steak with all the fat cut off, baby arugula and cottage cheese “dressing”- cottage cheese blended with spices and chicken stock

Great fresh organic meat options at Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market and Hy-Vee.

The Revol brand has become a new favorite of mine. The blends of lettuce and herbs in one pack make for tasty salads that aren’t bitter and they seem to have been on sale the last few weeks.

Please comment under the blog or send a private message to Riverview if you have questions or would like to learn more about HCG. Dr. Schneider and the rest of the team, they are amazing and coach you along the way!

Male Plastic Surgery Options

Many people think of plastic surgery as a treatment option for women alone. But the truth is that there are many plastic surgery options available for men as well! In this article, we are going to talk about a few plastic surgery treatment options that can benefit male patients.

Neck Lift

As a person gets older, the skin loses its elasticity and sags. This can lead to the dreaded “double chin” or “turkey neck” in men. A neck lift procedure can help tighten sagging skin in the neck and restore strong jaw lines. This leads to a thinner appearance and helps boost confidence.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as nose job) is a procedure in which a plastic surgeon reshapes the contours of the patient’s nose. This is often done for cosmetic reasons to improve the look and feel of the nose, but it can also be beneficial for treating various conditions such as a deviated septum.

Botox & Facial Fillers

Two of the most effective non-surgical treatment methods for reducing wrinkles are Botox and facial fillers. These procedures are minimally invasive injections that are relatively painless, effective, and can be done over your lunch break. While the effects don’t last as long as more invasive options, they are a painless, cost-effective alternative.

Cosmetic & Aesthetic Treatments for Men

There are many aesthetic and cosmetic treatment options available to patients, both surgical and non-invasive. At Riverview Facial Plastic & Total Body Aesthetic, our team offers a wide range of treatments including face lift surgery, CoolSculpting, medically supervised weight loss, and more. Dr. Daniel Schneider is a board-certified surgeon specializing in facial plastics. We work with each and every one of our patients to help them attain their cosmetic goals.
