Dr. Blake Receives Patient’s Choice Award

Patients’ Choice recognition reflects the difference doctors make in the lives of their patients. The honor is bestowed on physicians and dentists who have received near perfect scores, as voted by their patients.

Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their physicians and dentists. They provide overall opinions and rate various components of care, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff.

patients-choice-awards_logoWhile doctors generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews worthy of a Patients’ Choice acknowledgement. In fact, of the nation’s 830,000 active doctors, only 5% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012.

Dr. Blake is very honored by this recognition which comes directly from his patients. View Dr. Blake’s profile.

Gummy Bear Implants Approved by FDA

We are excited to now offer the FDA approved “Form Stable” silicone implants.  Although these newly approved implants may not be the best fit for everyone, they do offer some exciting new advantages; Less rupture/leakage rate, more natural appearance, less “rippling” and less capsular contracture rate.  These implants have been used in Europe for years, thus diminishing many questions of long term results.

Breast implants continues to be the number one cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. And now there’s something new for women that some believe is not only safer, but more natural looking, too.

abc_gummy_bear_implant_jef_120517_wgLate in 2012 and early in 2013, the FDA approved Gummy Bear implants from two of the largest, most professional pharmaceutical companies in the world: Sientra and Allergan. The FDA’s endorsements are good news for all women considering breast surgery.

Nicknamed “Gummy Bears,” women in counties all over the world had been using them for nearly 20 years. After years of testing, they have now been approved for use in the U.S.

The Gummy Bear procedure can be done under sedation or general anesthesia. Typically, the breast implant procedure can take 45 to 90 minutes, depending on the patient’s history. After surgery, most women take ibuprofen and a low-dose narcotic. No special exercises or wraps are needed. Use of a surgical bra this is a matter of individual preference.

Gummy Bear implants are only available through board certified plastic surgeons like Drs. Mark Blake and Roger Mixter.

Dermapen Treatment Tightens, Lifts and Rejuevenates the Skin.

The Dermapen treatment is successful at treating a variety of skin presentations.

Before-after-dermapen-treatmentsDermapen is a new technology in micro-needling procedures, which are used to stimulate the production of collagen within the skin to provide skin rejuvenation and plumping. The Dermapen is a small hand-held device that is often used to treat acne scars, fine lines and help remove stretch marks. This device utilizes mechanized puncturing actions to provide fast, effective treatments and uses disposable needles, so there is no risk of cross-contamination.

The Dermapen fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction via fragmented delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction.

The Dermapen’s controlled precision allows for the three phases of CIT mechanics of new collagen growth to occur. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur. The last phase of CIT and the Dermapen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. Learn more…

Noninvasive facial tightening: Thermage vs Ultherapy

Cosmetic Surgery Times, December 2011

A recent study of non-surgical facial tightening revealed that the results of focused ultrasound  (Ultherapy) and pulsed radiofrequency (Thermage) are the same.  The main differences were number of treatments to maximal tightening and pain.  Thermage accomplished the same degree of tightening with fewer treatments and less pain.  We offer Thermage, Icon Max Deep Infrared and Candela CO2RE for facial tightening at the Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery.

Facelift vs. Total Facial Rejuvenation

“Face-lifts used to result in the overly tight stretched skin look. Today’s procedures tighten the understructure which results in a more natural look with less downtime,” according to Dr. Blake.

By incorporating the latest breakthroughs in aesthetic science, the surgeons at The Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery are now providing a protocol that can achieve an entirely fresh, more youthful facial appearance. It’s called “Total Facial Rejuvenation.”

Before (L) and After (R) Total Facial Rejuvenation

Total Facial Rejuvenation Encompasses Three Procedures

  • Erbium Laser Skin Remodeling
  • Structural Fat Grafting
  • Sub Muscular Aponeurotic Suspension (SMAS)

Erbium Laser Skin Remodeling

Erbium Laser Skin Remodeling delivers laser energy in a specialized “dot matrix” pattern that leaves areas of untouched healthy skin “in-between” areas that are treated. The results are the removal of age spots, discolorations and wrinkles witha quicker healing time and superior effectiveness.

Structural Fat Grafting

Structural Fat Grafting is a procedure that restores facial volume to areas such as the cheek or lips. Instead of using synthetic materials though, the surgeons at The Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery can use a naturally occurring substance that will never be rejected by a patient’s body — his or her own fat — usually taken from the thigh, hips, abdomen or buttocks.

“There is no question that one’s own fat is ideal for soft tissue augmentation,” says Mark F. Blake, M.D., Medical Director of The Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery. “The results are the most natural appearing, but the best part is the duration. Fat transferred through Structural Fat Grafting actually gains its own blood supply in its new location, which allows the material to  ll out sunken areas of the face for a very long time.”

Sub Muscular Aponeurotic Suspension (SMAS)

Sub Muscular Aponeurotic Suspension (SMAS)  is used to tighten jowls and nasolabial folds which restores the natural attachments of the facial understructure to achieve a more long lasting and natural look.
