How Young is Too Young for Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty before and afterA question specialists at CG Cosmetic Surgery are constantly being asked by young clients, parents, and the medical field is that of rhinoplasty: how young is too young to have a nose job? And moreover, what factors in a young patient can determine that answer, and how much does the motto of “every patient is different” come into play with this very popular procedure? In order to best address the question of age limit in rhinoplasty, CG Cosmetic Surgery offers the following factors that must be considered by both the patient and the attending cosmetic surgery facility, and certainly on a case-by-case basis.

A rhinoplasty, or by more casual terms, a “nose job”, is a surgical restructuring or “reshaping of the bone, tissue, and cartilage in the nose” (CG), and one of CG Cosmetic in Miami’s most popular and successful cosmetic surgeries. There are two typical reasons that clients come to our office desiring a rhinoplasty: for vanity purposes-they just don’t like their nose, or for breathing purposes-in the case of a deviated septum. Young adults have the same reasons for wanting surgery, as many adult clients do; however, there should be some limitations when this procedure is considered for adolescents.


1.       Age Requirement: The medical field most often agree that-unless there is a unique case of true medical need-a rhinoplasty should not be performed on a child younger than 15 or 16 years old. The main reason in this case being, because the nose is not fully formed until these years are present, and thus, should not be messed with, for the sake of potentially making the nose look or perform worse.

2.   Long Healing Time: For an adolescent considering rhinoplasty, the decision should never be made lightly, as the healing time after a nose job can last up to a year. Common after effects of a rhinoplasty include, but are not limited to, the following: swelling, soreness, and bleeding. Moreover, the actual nose result that was the ideal result of the nose job, might take up to a year to be reached.



Brow Lifts

Is a Brow Lift Right For You?

Should you get a brow lift? CG Cosmetic Surgery has been in the business in making people feel better about the bodies they live in, every day for many years now. One of our top cosmetic surgeries is brow lifts, a procedure-otherwise known as a forehead lift, which does as one would imagine: lifts the brows that may have become hooded over the upper eyelids due to aging. It is a popular surgery as it is a simple surgery that gets quick younger-looking results. Below, we talk the basics of brow lifts, and why you may or may not be a great candidate for brow lift from CG Cosmetic Surgery.

Should You Get a Brow Lift?

While the only way to really know if you should get a brow lift is to meet for a consultation with a cosmetic surgery specialist, there are other factors that should be considered prior to making that initial call. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

·         Are you in good physical health?

·         Do you smoke?

·         Do you have realistic goals for this or any other cosmetic surgery?


Brow Lifts: What They Do

First and foremost, what would getting a cosmetic brow lift do for you? As the age and body begin to age, the eyebrows begin to gradually lower and start to “hood” over the eye area. A brow lift lifts the brow up, while simultaneously smoothing the potential horizontal wrinkles formed on the forehead, the wrinkles between the eyes, and on the bridge of the nose. Moreover, with a successful brow lift, you will see less or less prominent frown lines, and the overall appearance of the face will seem more alert and youthful.  While a brow lift is often a great solution to the above aging issues, more advanced aging patients often also get eyelid tucks (upper and/or lower), skin resurfacing procedures, and facelifting should it be required.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt LiftA Brazilian Butt Lift goes by many names; Buttocks Augmentation, Buttocks Transfer, or Gluteoplasty, but they are all the same operation.  For those that are unhappy with their buttocks, CG Cosmetic Surgery offers a Butt Lift procedure that will transform your butt to a youthful, perky, and firm buttocks.  Sometimes women or men simply don’t produce enough fat in their bottocks, or have not found success in creating a firmer larger butt through squats or other glute firming exercises; when this happens, a Brazilian Butt Lift can help.The procedure will enhance the size of your butt by removing fat from other areas of your body and transferring it to your butt, helping to create that hourglass figure so many women are striving for.

Women or men who feel that their butt is not what it used to be, or is flat or saggy, which sometimes is a result from massive weight loss, are likely suitable candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift.  Instead of implants, the procedure uses your own fat, making it the most natural way to augment your butt. Our surgeons at CG Cosmetic Surgery will use fat grafting to achieve the look you are trying to achieve  The fat grafting process involves trained, professional surgeons who will use liposuction to remove fat from the thighs, abdomen, or other donor sites, and then transfer that fat to the buttocks.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure usually requires two to three weeks to recover.  Patients will need to refrain from directly sitting on the buttocks or lie on their backs during the healing process.  It is recommended patients also wear compression garments while they are recovering.  Because of swelling after surgery and during the healing process, patients may not see the permanent results for up to three months. If you think a Brazilian Butt Lift may be the right choice for you, contact us at (305) 466-7277 to set up a free consultation.

CG Cosmetic Surgery | What is the Recovery Process Like?

CG Cosmetic Surgery

CG Cosmetic Surgery has an overnight room patients can use during the recovery process.

To get the best results out of your plastic surgery procedure, it is extremely important to follow the strict guidelines for recovery.

Depending on the surgery, recovery time will vary. At CG Cosmetic Surgery, our qualified plastic surgeons provide specific post-operative care that will best support their patients’ recovery. During the complimentary consultation, surgeons will provide you an estimated recovery time that will yield optimal results. Recovery time for our two most popular procedures include:

Breast Augmentation

Total recovery from breast augmentation surgery takes at least four weeks. CG Cosmetic Surgery requires that patients take a week off work and avoid lifting heavy objects. Two weeks post-surgery, swelling, bruising, and soreness are to be expected, but supportive garments can be used to control swelling and discomfort. After about four weeks, the results will be fully noticeable.

Buttock Augmentation

The butt lifts performed at our Miami facility have revolutionized the procedure. Instead of buttock implants, our highly qualified physicians use fat grafting, which requires minimal recuperation and is less painful. CG Cosmetic Surgery requires patients to wear a surgical garment to minimize swelling for two weeks after surgery. Patients can return to work after two weeks, but minimal sitting is recommended. Progressive exercise is acceptable after two weeks and all normal activities can be resumed after four weeks.

While each surgery demands specific individual guidelines, there are also constants that are relevant for all surgeries.

CG Cosmetic Surgery encourages its patients to take time, relax, and care for themselves. Accepting that downtime is necessary will help patients return to normal faster. Furthermore, it is important to have a support system and ask for help when needed. Our surgeons are also on call 24 hours a day if any emergencies arise.
