The temperatures are growing hotter by the week here in Georgia, and the shorts are already getting shorter. For many, showing off their legs is nothing new – of course they are probably young and have yet to have children. However, for many (especially women), the thought of putting on a pair of shorts only brings about thoughts of anxiety. As we age, fat deposits become more stubborn and are harder to get rid of. Despite living a healthy lifestyle and getting regular exercise, many people are still left with cellulite on their thighs making them look older, heavier, and less fit than they actually are. continue reading
The nasal septum is the wall between the nostrils that separates the two nasal passages. It is made up of thin bone and cartilage, and it supports the nose and directs airflow. A deviated septum is when the cartilage or bone is not straight and impacts the way a person breathes. It is often the main culprit for those who snore and suffer from sleep apnea. Surgery to straighten the septum is called septoplasty. Many people have heard of a deviated septum because of the popularity of celebrities blaming this “cause” as the reason for a nose job. While it is hard to know just who in Hollywood is every honest about work they have or haven’t had done, correcting a deviated septum is a relatively easy procedure. continue reading
The neck is often an under considered feature that actually has a great deal of influence regarding how old a person appears. Excess skin that hangs from the neck, often referred to as a “turkey waddle,” can add years to a person’s face.

Many people find that they are unhappy with the size or shape of their ears. It may begin in early childhood when they are teased because their ears are larger than normal and stick out, or adults may find that they go to great lengths to cover their ears with hairstyles, hats, or other accessories. Fortunately, there is a cosmetic surgery available for those who wish to cosmetically alter their ears. Otoplasty, also known as ear plastic surgery, is a surgical technique used to pin the ears so that they do not protrude, reshape the ears, reduce the size of the ear or earlobe, and/or remove and recontour excess skin and cartilage. continue reading
Scars come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and there are different stories behind each scar. While some people choose to keep their scars as “battle wounds” or proof of adventure, many people have painful memories that accompany their scars or are extremely self conscious of them.

At Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones is a highly trained and experienced, double board certified surgeon that is uniquely qualified to perform scar revision surgical and nonsurgical procedures. continue reading

Celebrities and plastic surgery have long gone hand-in-hand. This is because celebrities are expected to maintain a beautiful, youthful appearance despite their age, as a part of keeping up their celebrity status. It is also most likely due to the fact that celebrities are so sharply critiqued by the media and the public about their appearances. Whatever the reason, many celebrities have undergone some type of plastic surgery. However, some are more likely to admit it than others. Joan Rivers was the first to admit that she had undergone many plastic surgery procedures and was a big proponent of plastic surgery. Other celebrities like Demi Moore, Madonna and Renée Zellweger continue to deny that they have had plastic surgery, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. continue reading
