Aesthetx Featured in Article for Bay Area Publications

 

In new a feature article titled “Aesthetx: Silicon Valley’s Premier Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Practice,” writer Debbie Guadan highlights how Aesthetx brings the Silicon Valley spirit of innovation and ingenuity to cosmetic treatments.

Summary of the Article

The feature article traces Aesthetx’s evolution as a joint venture of Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz, to a growing practice with a brand-new dermatology department headed by Dr. Amelia K. Hausauer. As the article expounds on the doctors’ status as “visionaries and thought leaders on the future of aesthetic surgery,” it also highlights their history of innovation and their work with the latest medical technology.

All in One Practice

The article outlines just what makes Aesthetx unique: the fact that its a one-stop shop for skincare and cosmetic surgery needs. With the addition of renowned dermatologist Dr. Amelia K. Hausauer, Aesthetx became a comprehensive cosmetic practice that’s tailor-made for Silicon Valley. There, patients are able to undergo a treatment with the combined strategies of breast expert Dr. Zeidler, rhinoplasty master Dr. Berkowitz, and the skin care expertise of Dr. Hausauer.

Where You’ll Be Able to Spot It

Readers will be able to find the feature article in various Bay Area publications like The Mercury News, The East Bay Times, and the Marin IJ.

A New Event

The special article featured another interesting tidbit: on February 8, Aesthetx will be hosting a Valentine’s Day-themed event in French Theft, a popular lingerie boutique in Los Gatos, CA. It’s a Valentine’s Day Pop Up for guests to mingle with the Aesthetx doctors, enjoy complementary prosecco and hors d’oeuvres, and win raffle prizes. All guests will receive free swag like gift bags, a $50 Aesthetx gift certificate, and so much more. There’s even going to be a photo booth and a photo contest for the best-dressed guest. Pop up participants will also receive special promotions and deals on French Theft lingerie and Aesthetx procedures.

Still, it’s not all fun and games; Aesthetx is all about educating the public, so patients will be able to ask Drs. Zeidler, Berkowitz, and Hausauer any questions they may have about aesthetic procedures.

The Valentine’s Pop Up will be held in 59 N Santa Cruz Ave, Los Gatos, CA on Thursday, February 8th from 7 to 9 pm.

This isn’t Aesthetx’s only claim to fame; Drs. Zeidler, Berkowitz, and Hausauer have made it to dozens of publications and media appearances. If you’d like to finally see them in person, contact their San Jose office now for a consultation.

The Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery and Dermatology

Aesthetx is fortunate to have experts in both plastic surgery and dermatology onsite at their multi-specialty practice in Silicon Valley. With both specialties combined, patients have access to a wide variety treatments targeting medical conditions of the skin and soft tissue as well as procedures designed to aesthetically enhance the face and body. If you’re considering any procedure to enhance your appearance, take a look at some of the top benefits of combining both specialties.

A Comprehensive Approach

Perhaps one of the top benefits of combining plastic surgery with dermatology is the comprehensive, patient-centered approach this provides. There are many circumstances when having multiple perspectives and multiple training backgrounds can improve the final result. For example, surgery creates scars.  There are steps that can be taken to minimize the risk of poor healing or to blend and erase scars once present.  Having a dermatologist and surgeons under one roof, allows for careful planning from the first appointment before surgery all the way through recovery and onward.  However, the collaboration doesn’t stop there.  Comprehensive treatment means addressing all signs of aging and changes in body shape.  A good example of this joint approach involves surgery to help redrape and resculpt, while laser resurfacing by a dermatologist airbrushes the skin to minimize fine lines and improve texture. This combination is the ultimate youth enhancer and both procedures can be done at the same time in the operating room so the downtime and recovery overlap.

One-Stop Shop

There is often overlap between service provided by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, so when it’s time to seek help for a skin condition or to enhance appearance, patients aren’t always sure whether who is the best physician for the job. What if these two aesthetic specialties were under one roof? IT’s the ultimate convenience.  Patients can have all of their questions addressed in one place, without having to be referred elsewhere. Their stories and concerns are already known, and previous treatments don’t have to be reviewed in detail like they would be at a new office. Whether you’re in need of a nose job, breast reconstruction, laser resurfacing, or BOTOX® injections, the specialists at Aesthetx would be happy to discuss your full range of dermatology and plastic surgery options.

The Best Results for You

By having access to both plastic surgery and dermatology services, patients get customized solutions that are best suited to their needs. For instance, patients seeking anti-aging dermatology services might find that they would get superior results from a surgical procedure like a facelift or blepharoplasty. Conversely, patients might be a better candidate for a less invasive procedure, like dermal fillers or platelet rich plasma (PRP, plasma) injections for hair regrowth. Aesthetx is proud to offer this combined approach to help patients achieve truly custom results.

You owe it to yourself to get the best treatment possible and the team at Aesthetx can create a treatment plan that helps you look and feel great. Contact Aesthetx today at (408) 559-7177 to schedule your personal consultation.

Men: Facelifts Can Lead to Greater Success

Traditionally, women have made up the majority of patients seeking plastic surgery procedures like facelifts. However, more and more men are now discovering the benefits of cosmetic surgery. The truth is, looks are just as important to men as they are to women. But when it comes to cosmetic procedures, the approach is slightly different in order to maintain an ideal masculine aesthetic.

While a facelift offers a number of cosmetic benefits for men, you might be surprised to find that this procedure may produce improvements in other areas of your life. Want to learn more? Then read on to discover the many ways that a facelift can help bring success to a man’s life.

Benefits of a Facelift for Men

  • Career: Society as a whole values fitness, health, and youth. And in many professions, this very idea is reflected by the importance of having to keep pace with younger colleagues. Even if you feel young, cosmetic imperfections like sagging facial skin and deep folds or creases can cause an aged appearance, putting you at risk of “aging out” of important networking groups and other social circles. Men can take advantage of a facelift to correct these issues and regain a youthful, professional appearance. While a successful career is obtained through dedication and hard work, “looking the part” is sometimes just as important, especially when maintaining your hard-earned status. Many facelift patients report a significant boost in confidence, which better positions them to thrive in competitive professional environments where image matters.
  • Personal Life: Men who suffer from cosmetic concerns associated with age often feel held back by their insecurities. After all, if you don’t feel good about your appearance, you probably won’t feel comfortable putting yourself out there and socializing. That’s why a facelift for men can be so beneficial. By correcting the major signs of age on the face, this procedure can essentially turn back time, allowing your appearance to reflect how you truly feel on the inside. This confidence will make it easy to return to the social scene without having to worry about your appearance.
  • Romantic Life: In addition to a dwindling social life, men with moderate-to-severe facial aging may put romance on hold. Some men aren’t necessarily bothered by wrinkles, but rather, by the loss of definition their face once had. Over time, the skin loosens and becomes saggy in some areas. As a result, definition along the jawbone, chin, and cheeks can decrease. A facelift can restore a more masculine definition to your face, while still allowing you to look like yourself and feel confident enough to date again.

If you’ve been considering a men’s facelift, this cosmetic procedure might be exactly what you need to feel more comfortable with your appearance.  Contact Aesthetx at (408) 559-7177 to schedule a consultation, where all of your questions and concerns about facelifts for men can be answered.

ASAPS Meeting Recap: Aesthetx

Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz recently attended the ASAPS meeting in sunny San Diego, and as always, both doctors enjoyed catching up with colleagues, checking out the newest technologies, and having some top-secret meetings about yet-to-be-revealed industry developments.

Dr. Zeidler Featured on Facebook Live for miraDry

Aesthetx is one of the only practices to offer miraDry in Silicon Valley, and it’s wildly popular with patients. Aesthetx patients love permanently getting rid of underarm sweat, eliminating odor without wearing deodorant, and most importantly, the boost in body confidence. While at ASAPS, Dr. Zeidler demonstrated how quick and easy the miraDry procedure is on Facebook Live.

Fat Transfer, Renuva, and More

Dr. Zeidler also met with several companies with new technologies in development, including new ways to do fat transfer to the face and hands, without the need for the operating room and general anesthesia, making it easier and more attainable for more patients (and most likely more affordable). There is also a new product called Renuva that Dr. Zeidler will be starting a clinical trial for some time in 2018. It is fat in a syringe that can be used for filling small dents – great for cellulite and dimples created by surgery. The future studies will be looking at this product as a permanent alternative to HA fillers in the face.

Dr. Zeidler met with the CEOs of both Sientra and Allergan breast implant companies to see where the companies are going and how they plan to refine their products over the next several years. Dr. Zeidler is looking forward to the collaborations both companies are planning with Aesthetx, including supporting Dr. Z’s annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness day (BRA Day).

Dr. Z and Sientra CEO, Jeff Nugent, agreeing on the amazing new look of Biocorneum and their recent acquisition of SSP products for breast reconstruction.

Dr. Zeidler loved how down to earth Allergan CEO Brent Saunders was. He even followed us on Instagram and regularly “likes” our posts. Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz are both excited about the incredible breadth of technologies Allergan is consolidating into programs that will give patients rewards – from BOTOX®, to fillers, to CoolSculpting, to breast implants. Sientra has some exciting new developments in their US manufacturing plant. Dr. Zeidler is their current Medical Director for their Clinical Trials and is currently working on writing their clinical outcomes paper on their 10 year breast implant study data. She looks forward to joining their Medical Advisory Board, and enjoys collaborating with their CEO Jef Nugent on the company’s plans for expansion.

Dr. Zeidler REALLY was excited about the first clinical trial meeting for the new breast implant company Motiva from Costa Rica. These implants have some exciting new features, including a special blue membrane to detect rupture, an implanted chip to provide more information about the implant size and history, and special shells and micro textures and super silicones, which may have some unique benefits to patients. The “ergonomic” breast implant is one that Dr. Zeidler has her eyes set on as it could potentially offer all the benefits of an anatomically-shaped implant, without the risks. The trial will provide more data on these special features.

Dr. Z with Establishment Labs/ Motiva CEO Juan Jose Chacon.

The Motiva meeting was hosted at the San Diego Zoo, where Dr. Z dined amongst exotic animals from around the world.

The REAL Highlight of ASAPS

Although dinner at the zoo was amazing, Dr. Zeidler had to admit that her favorite part of her visit to San Diego was getting a ride in a bike taxi after walking around in stilettos all day!

Dr. Berkowitz Speaks on Innovations in Rhinoplasty

Dr. B’s time at ASAPS was just as busy! He was a featured speaker in a panel regarding innovations in rhinoplasty where he showed his 5-minute video of utilizing the ultra-high frequency piezo electric power tools. This generated quite a bit of discussion but with much greater acceptance of the validity compared to his prior presentations on the subject.

Dr. Berkowitz was also the co- chairman of the Rhinoplasty Symposium along with the president of the Rhinoplasty Society, Dr Geoffrey Keyes. The symposium was designed to educate plastic surgeons who are not members of the Rhinoplasty Society on what changes are being made. Surgeons from across the world were speakers in the program. The emphasis was on the more predictable and versatile approach to a more structured rhinoplasty result utilizing cartilage grafts from the nose, ear and rib donor sites.

Again power tools were featured by Dr Berkowitz as an innovation to improve outcomes.

After the Symposium Dr Berkowitz was a faculty member in a cadaver course on rhinoplasty where participants learned basic and advanced techniques in an open forum with their colleagues. Dr Berkowitz provided piezo machines from Comeg and Synthes for the participants to try out. This is the beginning of what will be a revolution if not just an evolution in our field.

Dr. Berkowitz and Dr. Zeidler had a great time in San Diego, but they’re happy to be back at Aesthetx doing what they do best – making you, you…only better.

Achieving a Toned Tummy with Limited Gym Time!

Summer is here. It’s time for beaches, boats, and showing off your body. You were faithful to the gym in January – for about a month.  You’ve kept the weight down, but those stubborn fat deposits still reside around your tummy. You’ve considered everything, including surgery – or have you?

You’ve thought about liposuction, but you’re not ready for the downtime. Plus, you don’t want surgery. Is there something short of surgery to eliminate those pesky fat pockets that exercise won’t remove?

CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® uses cutting-edge fat freezing technology to remove fat resistant to diet and exercise, without using surgery. CoolSculpting® can sculpt and tone your body with little time, no effort, and no recovery. Using fat-freezing technology, CoolSculpting® can transform any body part, like your belly, back, thighs, hips, flanks, butt, or arms.

While CoolSculpting® reduces fat, patients who are close to their ideal body weight and are physically fit see the best results. These patients are searching for a procedure to get them over the finish line without spending several hours in the gym. They seek to refine the contours of their figure and enjoy wearing whatever they want.

With different applicators to choose from, Aesthetx can design a treatment plan for the most stunning results.

Target Areas That Bother You

A personalized treatment plan may consist of more than one CoolSculpting treatment. You may want to freeze away fat from your tummy—then get rid of those love handles that nobody loves.

Aesthetx offers only the most advanced, proven technology for our patients. That’s why we are one of a few practices in Silicon Valley which can perform DualSculpting. The DualSculpting system allows you to be treated from two sides simultaneously, increasing the efficiency, symmetry, and power of the Cryolipolysis™ system. By cutting your treatment time in half, DualSculpting is the potent, time-saving fat freezing procedure you’ve been waiting for.

Holistic Body Sculpting

Aesthetx will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need. The result?

Because the body flushes the dead fat cells away naturally, your results will appear gradually in the following weeks after treatment. Multiple sessions may produce optimal results for those possessing more trouble spots.

To further refine the fat freezing results CoolSculpting®, many patients supplement their treatment with VASER Shape, a noninvasive treatment that uses massage and ultrasound energy for body contouring and cellulite-reduction.

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. For a chance to work with our talented surgeons, contact Aesthetx now.
