Neck Lift Encino, CA

Loose Necks are for Turkeys

Since we’re now out of summer and heading quickly into autumn, some people think of turkeys. Well, not because the weather is changing here in California — you know better than that — but more likely because the neck of their neighbor is so loose and giggly, it reminds the person of a turkey. That’s […]

Peels Can Get Rid of Old Dull Skin

Our skin is constantly shedding. For better or worse, depending on your perspective, we don’t do it like snakes that simply slough off the old skin for a new shiny layer beneath. We do it cell by cell, but the plodding pace of that can leave our outer skin dull and lifeless. To accelerate the […]

Take a Skin Cancer Quiz

Southern California provides endless opportunities for fun in the sun: surfing, swimming, skiing, boating, hiking, biking, golfing, and just about anything else you can do outdoors.

A New Nose

It’s not as if today’s crop of humans suddenly decided we didn’t like our noses and wanted to change them. The first recorded rhinoplasty or nose-enhancement surgery can be traced back to the ancient times of Egypt and India. Today rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the country. Men and […]

Hyaluronic Acid and Dermal Fillers

If you’re here poking around Dr. Malamet’s blog and website, you’ve probably already heard of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the basis of “naturally derived” dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane that Dr. Malamet uses with his patients. These fillers get that designation because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. In […]
