The aging process can start as early as your mid-20s when your body starts creating less and less collagen. Collagen is one of the proteins in your skin responsible for a youthful glow. There are many ways to restore a younger complexion that don’t involve invasive procedures. At Ghavami Plastic Surgery, we offer various non-surgical options to improve your facial appearance.
HydraFacial is an advanced aesthetic treatment that is a step beyond microdermabrasion, offering the flexibility to choose among a wide range of topical solutions and techniques. Trusted Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami recommends HydraFacial to many of his patients, regardless of skin type or degree of sensitivity.
As we age, it is common to gain volume in areas of the body where it is least welcome, such as the hips and abdomen. With the lips, the opposite is true. Lips lose their fullness and “pout” as the skin sags and loses collagen, the natural protein that keeps our facial features looking smooth and vibrant. How much and how fast this occurs depends in part on environment and lifestyle, but mostly genetics.

Lewis Carroll would have loved the Internet. After all, it’s a looking-glass world where nothing is quite what it seems; a magical wonderland filled with curious characters and vivid, unexplored landscapes. Watching the colorful pageantry pass by on a smartphone screen, it’s often hard to believe your eyes.
Popular software programs like Facetune and Photoshop make it even harder to separate truth from illusion. A 21st-century version of the Cheshire Cat wouldn’t bother with the old disappearing trick to draw attention; he’d simply turn on Facebook filters.

Dermal fillers are a quick and effective way to restore lost volume to the cheeks. When injected properly, dermal fillers can result in lifted cheeks and a more balanced overall facial appearance.
In this blog post, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami explains how he uses dermal fillers to create beautifully sculpted and lifted cheeks.
According to recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the number of butt enhancement procedures performed each year is rapidly increasing. Brazilian butt lift, which uses a patient’s surplus fat to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks, rose 13 percent in 2017, outpacing butt implant procedures. But while fat transfer and implants continue to be the go-to methods for achieving a shapelier and more attractive buttocks, there is another option that has garnered a lot of attention lately. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid based injectable that, when injected into the buttocks, can add shape and volume to the buttocks. Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, a renowned plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, specializes in enhancing the buttocks with both Sculptra and fat transfer.
