Berkowitz Becomes of One First US Surgeons to Offer State-of-the-Art Comeg Ultrasonic Tools

Aesthetx has always prided itself on building plastic surgery on a foundation of innovation. Through state-of-the-art technology, advanced techniques, or their novel approach to plastic surgery, Aesthetx aims to improve the patient experience and, more importantly, create exquisite results. That’s why we’re proud to announce that Dr. Berkowitz will be bringing an incredible new technology to our practice: Comeg Ultrasonic Tips for Piezo Power Tools. Best of all—he’ll be one of the very first surgeons in the US to do so. With this new development, Aesthetx once again solidifies their position in the vanguard of plastic surgery.

A Giant in the World of Rhinoplasty

Aesthetx is now proud to offer Comeg Medical’s new ultrasonic tips for Piezo power tools—the very first of its kind. These ultrasonic tips are designed to increase a surgeon’s control and precision during rhinoplasty. While traditional nose surgery techniques used hammers and chisels to break bones, Piezo power tools with ultrasonic energy can intricately shape the structures of the nose without harming the nearby tissues, resulting in a faster, more comfortable healing process for the patient.

Dr. Berkowitz was already renowned for using Piezo Power Tools for rhinoplasty, but by incorporating the ultrasonic tips, he takes nose surgery to another level of precision.

A History of Innovation

Before Dr. Berkowitz had the insight to use them for rhinoplasty procedures, Piezo power tools were only used for neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery. In fact, Dr. Berkowitz was the first to introduce them to the Rhinoplasty Society, the largest organization for rhinoplasty-oriented surgeons where he’s also a board member. He then spent the next few years helping developing and popularizing the use of Piezo power tools for nose surgery and working with visionaries like Dr. Olivier Gerbault to further refine his technique.


In the years since, Dr. Berkowitz has taught fellow surgeons about the benefits of Piezo power tools in countless national symposiums such as the Rhinoplasty Symposium and ASAPS meetings and written a textbook on his rhinoplasty technique (featuring a different instrument).

At the heart of any aesthetic surgical procedure is innovation; the field of plastic surgery itself is an incredible advancement in the history of medicine. With Dr. Berkowitz’s adoption of ultrasonic tips, we take plastic surgery one step further into the future. To learn more about Aesthetx’s leading edge procedures, contact us for a consultation.

What You Need to Learn About Breast Augmentation in Your 40s

It might not seem like it, but plenty of women undergo breast augmentation in their 40s. If you’re in your 40s and considering breast augmentation, then you’re probably wizened and ready for a new change. Don’t think of it as if it’s a matter of being too old to get a new figure—if anything, breast augmentation just might be the key to rejuvenating your look. You’ve been there, done that—now it’s time to do a little something for yourself. To help you learn more about the process, we’ve put together this helpful guide on what you need to learn about breast augmentation in your 40s:

Plan, Plan, Plan

It’s important to consider the logistics of breast augmentation—especially when it comes to timing. Lucky for you, being in your 40s is an optimal time to get the procedure done. Many women are often done having children in their 40s, which removes the possibility that their results might be compromised by a future pregnancy. And since age-related volume loss might have set in by their 40s, many women also seek breast augmentation to help restore fullness and firmness to the breasts.

Consider a Lift

At your age, your skin’s elasticity will be slightly compromised. It’s possible that over the years, a small degree of drooping might even have developed. In that case, it’s important to consider whether you should also undergo a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation. Hear us out: for certain women who have some droopiness in the breast, the insertion of implants might actually make sagging worse. With that in mind, you might want to opt for a breast lift with implants because it would be able to give you the right lifting effect as well as give you peace of mind that your results will be long-lasting. A breast lift with implants can address a wide range of issues:

  • Restore volume loss in the breasts
  • Enhance the cleavage
  • Reposition the breasts to a more youthful position
  • Resize overly large nipples

Maybe a Mammogram

Since many women begin getting mammograms in their 40s, you might be concerned about how implants might interfere with the screening. Fortunately, many physicians consider breast augmentation to be safe for mammograms, although it’s highly recommended that you inform the technician about your implants before every test.

This is your decade—your time to just do you. Maybe you’re done having children or you’re at the peak of your career, but now is the perfect time to boost confidence and pride about your body. To learn more about what your breast augmentation will be like, contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

What You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation in Your 30s

Are you in your 30s and thinking about breast augmentation? Lucky for you, your 30s is an optimal time for breast enhancement; you’re more confident, you’ve probably settled into a career, and you know yourself more than ever. If you’re curious about what having breast augmentation in your 30s will entail, check out our guide on getting breast augmentation in your 30s.

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation

In addition to being one of the most customizable procedures in the plastic surgery industry, breast augmentation happens to be the top cosmetic procedure in the world—and for good reason. Breast augmentation is a great way to remake your figure and give yourself a curvier, more alluring silhouette. To be more specific, breast augmentation can:

  • Enhance breast volume
  • Enhance your cleavage
  • Shape the breasts
  • Create fuller, firmer breasts

Optimal Breast Augmentation

One of the main issues with getting breast augmentation in your 20s is that your breasts might still be growing and maturing; once you’re in your 30s, however, that risk is almost nonexistent. Unless you have some major life changes-like pregnancy-getting a breast augmentation in your 30s is a great way to ensure your breast augmentation results will stand the tests of time.

Breast Feeding and Pregnancy

If you’re thinking about having children in the future, then it’s important to consider potential issues like how your breasts might change because of pregnancy or how breast implants might interfere with breast feeding. Since our breasts naturally change shape and size during pregnancy, it’s possible that your breast augmentation results might be affected. And while it’s not impossible to breastfeed after having breast implants, the amount of milk you produce might be compromised. If having more kids is a possibility in the future, you should make sure to discuss it with your surgeon.

Who You Are

Planning your breast augmentation is more than finding out what will look best on you—in fact, your implants should also fit your lifestyle and personality. Thankfully, a lot of women hit their stride in their 30s; women are a lot more self-assured at that time in their lives, and many of them have settled into lifelong careers and hobbies. By your 30s, you already know whether you’re someone who loves being active or someone who doesn’t mind a dramatic physical change, making it the perfect time to choose the kind of implants that will work best with your life.

Now that you know a little bit more about what it means to get breast augmentation in your 30s, let our surgeons educate you on the rest. Contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

Invest in Yourself; Cosmetic Procedures You Can Get with Your Tax Return

If you’re one of the 66% of Americans that expects a tax return this year, then you’re probably already trying to decide on how you’ll treat yourself. What better way is there to spend your money than a cosmetic treatment that could improve your confidence and self-esteem? You won’t be the first to spend their tax return on a cosmetic procedure: one RealSelf poll found that at least 29% of its community will do just that. Take some time to review some perfect procedures to get with your tax return, because it’s not a splurge—it’s an investment.

VI Peel

Don’t want to go too crazy with your newfound riches? A VI Peel will give you flawless, rejuvenated skin with none of the downtime of a major procedure. 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.


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.
