Go Batty for Halloween

There are certain things that are universally admired. Long, thick eyelashes would be one of them. Unfortunately, many of us are born with less than the eyelashes we’d like to have. Plus, years of plucking and applying mascara have thinned them out even more. So, we apply mascara, eyeliner, maybe even false eyelashes, but those […]

Who Was Doing What in 2016?

It’s always interesting to see what procedures are the most popular in the aesthetic world. Sometimes Dr. Malamet’s patients ask as to which procedure is more popular this year and other similar questions. Every year the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) compiles statistics from the previous year. Here are the numbers from last […]

Are Your Eyes Saying You’re Tired?

When you’re toiling away at work, do you ever have someone come to your desk and say, “Wow, you look really tired? No sleep last night?” While the person may seem to be somewhat concerned, their attention is irritating, especially when you got plenty of sleep the night before! It could be your eyes that […]

Earlobe Repair Encino, CA

Fixing an Earlobe

Lots of things need fixing: that flat tire on your beach cruiser, the hole in your gutter, that chipped the tooth, those jai alai games in Tijuana. OK, maybe not that fixing! Dr. Malamet sometimes is even called upon to fix the earlobes of his patients. What is earlobe repair? A patient may need an […]

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. That’s one reason we all live here, right? Unfortunately, all of this time spent outdoors is inviting another unwelcome guest to come to the party — skin cancer. Since […]

Using Dermal Fillers for Lip Augmentation

Everyone would like to have lips like Angelina Jolie. Unfortunately, many of us are born with thin, shapeless lips. Or, with age, our lips have lost volume, as happens in other areas across the face. Or, we’re blessed with lips that lack symmetry from side to side. Lip augmentation is nothing new. In the past, […]

MOHS Surgery Encino, CA

Removing Skin Cancer with Mohs Surgery

Skin cancer often occurs in places where you don’t exactly want a big scar…like the cheeks, nose, or forehead. Removing a basal cell carcinoma on the back of a man is a far cry from removing a squamous cell carcinoma on the cheek of a woman. That’s why Dr. Malamet uses Mohs surgery for removal […]

Liposuction is the Boss of Stubborn Fat

Fat can be stubborn, kind of like the two-year-old rolling around on the floor of Ralph’s when his mom wouldn’t get him the Sour Patch Kids candy. No matter how much you work out or what changes you make to your diet, in certain areas such as the abdomen it is very difficult to get […]
