Did you know that BOTOX is not only used for cosmetic/anti-aging purposes? There are a lot of other functional uses for Botox, for example this patient who has facial paralysis! In cases like this, Botox can help even out the face and make the effect of the paralysis more subtle 💉 #AronowitzMD

@busybeingbridget & I have conversations about different hot topics in plastic surgery all the time, so we’ve decided to share them with you! On this episode we’re discussing a touchy subject- VIPs & CELEBRITIES! Working in Los Angeles and especially Beverly Hills, we see a lot of them! The truth is though, every patient should be treated like a VIP, and every VIP should be treated like any other patient. The same level of professionalism and respect is necessary for all patients! What do you guys think about our opinions on this? Let us know in the comments!

I hope you all had a nice long weekend! It’s back to business in Aronowitzland! For this weeks #TransformationTuesday I’m sharing a great liposuction #beforeandafter ⌛️ There's a good reason why liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. Liposuction produces near immediate results, instantly removing unwanted body fat in isolated areas of the body to create the ideal silhouette. Even the fittest of individuals often turn to liposuction to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that are frequently unresponsive to diet and exercise ⏳ #AronowitzMD

The PCR test tells you if you have an active infection now (taken with a swab), and the antibody test tells you if your body has already fought the infection before (taken with a finger prick). What do they have in common? They are both available to anybody who wants them at AronowitzLand! Knowledge empowers you, and you have the right to know what’s going on in your body! This video was taken at a pop up testing center at the @wendemuseum where I donated 200+ tests for the employees of Culver City with the @covid.md & @sharedharvestfund nonprofits! A great cause and a great day! 🦠 #AronowitzMD

It’s SUNDAY FUNDAY so I thought I’d share an #oddlysatisfying case of an infected abscess of the breast! This patient had a history of a previous trauma approximately 2-3 ago, resulting in a painful hematoma of her breast. I performed an incision and drainage of the abscess, followed by extensive debridement all under local anesthesia. She feels much better having all that gunk out of there! #AronowitzMD

Let’s talk about MOHS SURGERY 🔬 Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. Mohs surgery is also known as Mohs micrographic surgery. The goal of Mohs surgery is to remove as much of the skin cancer as possible, while doing minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Mohs surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis using a local anesthetic🔬 #AronowitzMD

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY from AronowitzLand! Here’s a clip from a precorona surgery showing the first step of a MOMMY MAKEOVER! The mommy makeover is one of today's most popular combination plastic surgery techniques, designed specifically to address common issues faced by women who have been through pregnancy and breastfeeding. "Mommy makeover" is a catch-all phrase that refers to a specialized combination of body contouring procedures, performed together to improve the physical changes that linger long after pregnancy. One reason for its popularity is that the mommy makeover has no set components; each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the individual patient's unique needs. However, the surgical approach generally starts with a breast and abdomen contouring procedure, then adding additional elements as needed. This particular patient opted for liposuction, a breast lift and tummy tuck revision! 🌈 #AronowitzMD

Let’s talk about SALINE IMPLANTS! One thing many people who opt for saline over silicone implants don’t realize is that the shell of the saline implants is made from silicone. The silicone shell is inserted into the body and then filled to its desired volume with saline fluid (like you see in this video). Underneath very thin skin, folds of a saline implant might be seen or felt more often – this is known as implant "rippling" or "wrinkling." Some saline implants have the advantage of being postoperatively adjustable via a remote injection port – this is commonly used in some types of breast reconstruction procedures to fine-tune the final implant volume over months before the implant port is removed 🎈 #AronowitzMD

It’s #TransformationTuesday in Aronowitzland! We’ve seen a lot of female #beforeandafter’s, so this week I thought I’d show you that men get plastic surgery too... and it can make a huge difference! This gentleman had a facelift and a quad blepheroplasty (also called an eye lift, this procedure reduces bagginess/excess skin from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons- However- It's also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision) 👀 What other before & afters would you like to see?
