Dr. Zeidler Provides Expertise for New Beauty Magazine’s Article on Natural-Looking Plastic Surgery

As a testament to Aesthetx’s reputation for creating breathtaking results, New Beauty magazine recently reached out to Dr. Zeidler for their piece on “The Major Way Plastic Surgery Has Changed Over the Years.” The article focused on how procedures for the breast, body, and face have changed over the years to emphasize more natural-looking results. By consulting with Dr. Zeidler, it’s clear that Aesthetx has truly established itself as a practice that specializes in creating natural-looking results that stand the test of time.

Aesthetx’s Commitment to the Natural Look

What does it mean to create “natural” results? It means enhancing the body in ways that don’t look too artificial or “overdone.” Creating natural-looking results requires an incredible understanding of the human body, and the ability to understand how our bodies move and come together. It requires the ability to respect the structure of the human body, and to sculpt it in ways that look perfectly balanced and proportional. In short, creating natural results requires more than artistry—it’s requires unparalleled surgical skill. In all of their procedures, from breast lifts, rhinoplasty, to fat transfer procedures, Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz strive to make their results noticeable—but in the best, most natural way possible.

Naturally Full Breasts

In the article, Dr. Zeidler spoke about the rise of new varieties of breast implants that give “natural-looking fullness that’s still sexy.” Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz themselves are two of the most experienced surgeons on anatomic highly-cohesive silicone breast implants, shaped implants that create natural, soft fullness without making the breasts look too artificially round or hard. The two surgeons are also renowned for establishing techniques like the auto-implant breast lift, a way of lifting sagging breasts that also reshapes the tissue into a rounder and more attractive shape. By addressing the tissue itself rather than merely lifting sagging skin, Aesthetx offers a breast lift that can last longer and looks more natural.

Using Natural Materials and Advanced Techniques

The article emphasizes that the best modern plastic surgery methods look natural by “adding to areas where there is a deficiency and taking away from those where there is excess.” By using fat transfer for their facial, breast, and buttocks enhancement surgeries, Aesthetx offers a chance to sculpt areas with excess fat, while providing natural enhancement to areas that need volume. Aesthetx offers procedures with fat grafts because they’re unbelievably safe, and because it’s the patient’s actual tissue, it moves and feels as real as possible.

Whatever procedure you get at Aesthetx, you’ll notice a change in all the right ways. Your friends, family, and coworkers will notice a more confident, more refreshed you, and they won’t be able to put their finger on what changed.

Build Your Perfect Body with A Mommy Makeover

We all pine for the days when our bodies were more toned and athletic. If you’re a mom, then you probably already have a plan to get your fantasy body down pat; a lift here, restoring volume there. Thankfully, with a mommy makeover, your dream body can become a reality. A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures that can help mothers retain their pre-baby body. Not a mom? No problem, a mommy makeover can help any woman build her perfect body. The mommy makeover is fully customizable for your unique needs–so it’s whatever you need it to be.

Breast Enhancement

Breast feeding and pregnancy can wreak havoc on our breasts. Once lactation is over, our breasts start to shrink, sag, and lose firmness. If you want to restore perkiness to your breasts, then Aesthetx’s state-of-the-art breast lift is the way to go. Known as the short-scar auto implant technique, Aesthetx’s breast lift can do more than lift and reposition the breasts; it can actually reshape the breasts back into a rounder, fuller form. Want to restore volume, too? Add implants and fat grafting to your breast lift for natural fullness.

Body Contouring

When we’re pregnant, our abdomens tend to stretch to make room for our growing bellies. That’s why some of us end up with a stretched out abdominal wall and excess skin that just won’t go away. Want your narrow waist and flat belly back in time for the high-waisted fashion trend? A tummy tuck can tighten those muscles and remove that extra tissue for a more athletic belly. There are many variation of the tummy tuck, from mini with a small skin excision and liposuction, to endoscopic assisted where the mini also includes a muscle repair, to a full tummy tuck with dramatic changes and we customize the procedure based on each patient’s individual anatomy.

Liposuction

Forget the baby bump, there are just some bumps that don’t go away after pregnancy. If you want to sculpt your body back into shape, Aesthetx offers liposuction using Hydrasolve and VaserLipo technology. Our liposuction is easier on the tissues, allows for greater precision, and gives you a faster recovery time. Hydrasolve and VaserLipo can work just about anywhere; so you can say goodbye to fat on the flanks, belly, and even your cheeks!

Labiaplasty

Pregnancy and childbirth can affect even the most intimate parts of your body. After childbirth, some women find that their labia minora had either torn or stretched to an uncomfortable size. If you’re tired of feeling self-conscious about your body or discomfort during sex thanks to an enlarged labia, a labiaplasty can restore the labia to a normal size and shape.

These are just some of the most common ways women build their bodies with the mommy makeover. What’s the perfect combination for you? Find out by contacting Aesthetx, for a consultation.

Skin Pen Microneedling Live Demo Event


Microneedling is gaining fame as one of the most advanced ways people can rejuvenate their skin without surgery. People are flocking to learn more about how this revolutionary treatment can regenerate and reinvigorate the skin cells. Lucky for you, Aesthetx is hosting a live demo event showcasing the Skin Pen, one of the most advanced microneedling devices in the industry. The event will be held at the Aesthetx offices on Monday, May 1st from 1:00-4:00pm.

What’s the Big Deal with Microneedling?

The Skin Pen microneedling device uses very fine needles to create “microinjuries” in the skin that are so small that they don’t create any substantial damage in the skin. What it does, however, is trigger the skin’s natural healing processes, which then leads to a process of regrowth and renewal for our skin. With a relatively painless procedure, the Skin Pen can:

  • Soften signs of aging
  • Treat stretch marks
  • Reduce the appearance of scars
  • Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • and so much more.

What’s even better is that the Skin Pen works on all skin tones and is safe to use for almost everybody.

See how it Works!

At our live demonstration, participants will be able to see how microneedling is performed for themselves, and they’ll be able to see firsthand why it’s one of the most remarkable rejuvenation treatments in the industry. Patients also have the opportunity to learn helpful tips on how to prevent aging and how to protect your skin from aging prematurely. What are you waiting for? Space for the event is limited, so remember to register for the event in advance by calling Aesthetx at 408-559-7177.

When and Where?

The event will happen on Monday, May 1st from 1:00-4:00pm at the Aesthetx offices on 3803 South Bascom Avenue, suite 100, in Campbell, CA.

Special Deals

We have a little extra treat for those who are able to make it to the event: instead of the regular price of $400 for a full face treatment, participants will be able to qualify for a package deal of 3 treatments for $900—a full $400 in savings.

Can’t make it? Aesthetx is more than happy to walk you through why microneedling is the best nonsurgical treatment for facial rejuvenation. Call our offices at (408)-559-7177 now for a complimentary consultation on the Skin Pen.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – MiraDry to the Rescue!

Excessive underarm sweating is a self-fulfilling prophecy; you worry and stress about sweating too much, which in turn causes you to sweat too much! It might seem like an endless, unsolvable problem, one that makes it difficult for you to feel confident and comfortable in your own body. You’ve probably tried endless kinds of deodorant or techniques to stop it, but it doesn’t seem like there’s a solution. Don’t sweat it, MiraDry has arrived as an effective, non-surgical solution to excessive sweating.

What’s MiraDry?

You don’t have to worry about excessive underarm sweating anymore with MiraDry, your chance at peace of mind. MiraDry destroys the main cause for excessive underarm sweating: overactive sweat glands. Best of all, MiraDry is a simple, non-surgical treatment. Through a series of short procedures, MiraDry selectively targets sweat and odor glands and delivers enough energy to destroy them. All you have to do is lie down while MiraDry gets to work. You won’t even feel a thing because your underarms will be numbed before the treatment.

Your body will sweat just like it used to, but now you can feel clean, confident, and carefree because you won’t have to deal with underarm stains or sticky streaks of deodorant.

Turn Back Time with these Anti-Aging Procedures!

Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up one day and find out that time has gone back for a bit? Every day we wake up, look in the mirror, and see more and more signs of aging: sagging skin, sun spots, deep wrinkles, and dry skin. We do our best conceal these blemishes—but it’s not really returning our skin back to its prime. Thankfully, there are some fantastic procedures out there that can give you a few more years of youth. You can turn back time, with Aesthetx’s outstanding anti-aging procedures.

Facelift

The facelift is the ultimate anti-aging procedure; not only can it make you look decades younger, but it also offers long-lasting results. A facelift will eliminate the most prominent signs of aging from the middle of the face all the way to the upper neck. You can finally say goodbye to nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sagging skin, jowls, heavy neck bands, and so much more. Want to target some especially tricky areas? You can choose between our different variations of the facelift.

Facial Fat Grafting

Losing baby fat is an essential part of growing up—unfortunately, losing too much of it can make us look older than we really are. Restoring that volume in a way that’s safe and long-lasting might seem impossible, but facial fat grafting will do just that. It works by taking a sample of your own fat-taken from a place with extra fat to give-and injecting it into areas of the face suffering from volume loss. It’s your own tissue, so the procedure is incredibly safe and the results look natural.

Sciton Lasers

Looking for rejuvenation without surgery? We have the best laser technology for zapping the blemishes away. Take your pick from our collection of Sciton Lasers: Microlaserpeel, SkinTyte, and Profractional Laser. By changing the very makeup of your skin, our laser systems can take care of every sign of blemish or sign of aging: sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and more. Now you can achieve fresher, younger, and brighter skin without having to worry about a long downtime or recovery period.

BOTOX®

BOTOX® is known worldwide as one of the most reliable and effective anti-aging treatments. It’s well deserved, because BOTOX® can soften the most prominent wrinkles and expression lines with just a few simple injections. Remarkably, the results of one treatment can last for months at a time.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are quickly establishing themselves as the go-to injectable for facial rejuvenation. From lip enhancement to smoothing out deep creases in the face—dermal fillers can do it all. Dermal fillers are smooth gels that, once injected into the desired areas, volumize the face and smooth out deep wrinkles.

The choice is yours: how will you turn back the hands of time? If you want some help deciding, contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

The VI Peel is one of the most advanced chemical peels in the industry because it has the power to reduce wrinkles, sun damage, and other blemishes—while also being relatively painless. Best of all, it works with all skin types.

Laser Hair Removal

Aesthetx offers the ClearScan and the BBL treatment for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a completely nonsurgical treatment that uses light or laser energy to remove hair from any area you want. In just a few treatments, you can have smooth, hairless skin forever. Think of all the money you’ll save when you no longer have to shell out your hard-earned money for razors and waxing services year after year!

Fat Transfer

If you’re going to use your tax return on one piece of technology, use it with Aesthex’s state-of-the-art fat grafting technologies: Hydrasolve and Puregraft. Fat transfers are extremely popular ways to restore fullness to the face or add subtle volume to the breasts and buttocks. Hydrasolve is an innovative liposuction technique that’s as gentle on the fatty tissue as possible, while Puregraft processes the fat with unparalleled pureness and cleanliness. Whether you want natural fullness in the breast, buttocks, or face, Aesthetx has the best tools for the job.

Facelift

You might not be able to cover the entire cost with your tax return, but the facelift is completely worth it. By tightening and lifting sagging skin, a facelift can eliminate deep wrinkles on the face and sagging jowls on the chin and neck. You’ll be able to remove decades off of your real age and enjoy results that last for an incredibly long time. You can’t put a price on feeling young again.

What’s a tax return to you? To a lot of people, it’s almost like a nice, unexpected present that comes once every spring time. Use it well by contacting Aesthetx for a consultation on their wonderful cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Berkowitz Joins Faculty of Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium

Aesthetx is incredibly proud to be led by two thought leaders who continue to inspire new generations of plastic surgery masters. In fact, our very own Dr. Berkowitz was recently invited to teach a new generation of rhinoplasty experts at the 34th annual Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium. Though he’s traveled the world as an educator for the latest plastic surgery techniques and devices, Dr. Berkowitz was honored to join the renowned rhinoplasty symposium for the very first time as a faculty member.

About the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium

Even in its 34th year, the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium still attracts hundreds of participants from all over the globe. With a focus on only the most advanced, proven techniques, the symposium aims to teach participants everything about rhinoplasty, from basic techniques to the most state-of-the-art improvements and refinements of traditional techniques. Many participants are post-graduate residents and practicing plastic surgeons who hope to improve their technique with the help of primary and secondary rhinoplasty masters like Dr. Berkowitz.

A Lifelong Educator

As a faculty member, Dr. Berkowitz used his years of expertise and status as an innovator to educate participants on one of the newest devices that’s changing the field of rhinoplasty: Piezo electric tools. Dr. Berkowitz was the very first faculty member to introduce the use of power tools as a superior tool for nose reshaping into the teaching course. Dr. Berkowitz showed the many benefits of using Piezo electric tools: power tools are precise enough to allow for more refined and predictable results, result in less trauma to the tissue, and cause less bruising and swelling than traditional techniques. The Aesthetx private surgery center is currently equipped with the latest Piezo electric tools.

A Master of Rhinoplasty

He’s been a huge figure in the world of rhinoplasty for some time, so it’s not surprising to see why Dr. Berkowitz was chosen to present at the Dallas Rhinoplasty symposium. Dr. Berkowitz currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Rhinoplasty Society. A consummate educator, he’s toured the world to speak about his state-of-the-art techniques and most recently taught a six-part course on the complete guide to rhinoplasty for the Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN.) He’s also authored book chapters on rhinoplasty and has had his work featured in the media and renowned publications all over the world.

In addition to his renowned work and illustrious career, Dr. Berkowitz is also a compassionate and caring doctor. For a chance to work with him and the esteemed Dr. Zeidler, contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

Dr. Zeidler Heads to Spain for Barcelona Breast Meeting 2017

As a thought-leader in the world of breast surgery, Dr. Kamakshi Zeidler has traveled the world to spread her expertise in new techniques for cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures. Just recently, Dr. Zeidler delivered a series of lectures for the most renowned physicians in her field at the 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting, a symposium on state-of-the-art revision surgery techniques, complex cases, and breast cancer treatment and reconstruction. Dr. Jaume Masia, one of the Chairmen of the symposium and colleague of Dr. Zeidler, personally tapped Dr. Zeidler to be a part of the faculty.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting

The 2017 Barcelona Breast Meeting was a three-day conference for some of the most renowned minds in the field of breast surgery. This year, the event had over 400 attendees from more than 26 countries. The conference featured lectures, live surgeries, and workshops. The lectures were delivered by the conference’s distinguished faculty, which was made up of a handful elite surgeons like Dr. Zeidler. The symposium was held at the world-famous and historic Hospital de Sant Pau, which happens to be the oldest hospital in Spain.

A Master of Breast Surgery

Dr. Zeidler was able to draw upon her innovative career for her lectures; she was honored to help educate attendees on the devices and techniques that she and Dr. Berkowitz had a hand in helping develop. Hot off her appearance on The Doctors, Dr. Zeidler once again lended her expertise on one of the most advanced devices for breast reconstruction: Aeroform. In a lecture titled “My Experience in Breast Reconstruction with AirXpander,” Dr. Zeidler described the incredible benefits of the Aeroform device, which allows women to control the degree and timing of their breast expansion to prepare for breast reconstruction. Dr. Zeidler also performed a lecture about her unique techniques for fat grafting for the breast, and how advanced devices like HydraSolve and PureGraft allow for smooth, predictable, and long-lasting results.

An Experienced Lecturer

Like many of the faculty members, Dr. Zeidler discussed the innovative techniques she’s pioneered, such as her and Dr. Berkowitz’s autoimplant breast lift technique and the use of acellular dermal matrixes. Dr. Zeidler discussed the long-lasting lift capabilities of the autoimplant breast lift and how acellular dermal matrixes provide crucial support for delicate reconstruction and revision procedures. Having seen so much during her illustrious career, she also drew on her unique experiences to moderate an international panel of surgeons who discussed their most difficult cases and how they solved them.

The Barcelona Breast Meeting was truly a meeting of the masters. If you’d like to see more pictures from Dr. Zeidler’s visit to Spain, visit our Instagram page below.
