American - Brazilian Plastic Surgery Meeting

Dr Turowski has just returned from the American Brazilian plastic surgery meeting in Park City Utah. This was a great occasion to exchange experiences between American plastic surgeons and our Brazilian friends.  General consensus of the meeting was that  less invasive procedures are becoming more popular. Non-invasive treatments are booming (Botox, injectables, lasers). There is more and more interest in laser liposuction/skin tightening and mini face lifts. Axillary silicone breast augmentations are very popular in Brazil - scars are not visible during topless  Rio Carnival! (I agree scars less visible than in other locations and we should use this approach more often). Als fat injection is here to stay. Both for the "Brazilian butt lift" and for the facial rejuvenation

Laser Liposuction Cool-lipo is here

We are pleased to announce that after careful consideration and evaluations  of available laser liposuction systems we have chosen Cool lipo by Cooltouch to be the best suited system for the advanced laser liposuction. It has the best potential to achieve the goal of skin tightening with liposuction without need for a facelift procedure and need for skin resection ad additional scarring
more to come. Stay tuned!

Hand Rejuvenation

Hand Rejuvenation is becoming more and more popular. Somewhat forgotten by the cosmetic surgeons, hands can be a very vivid reminder of someones age. Not anymore. We are able to change the appearance of the sun damaged skin and remove age spots with Fraxel laser. We can hide veins and "skinny look" with the help of injectables such as Radiesse and remove unsightly veins wit sclerotherapy or lasers.

Beware of counterfeit injectable products

Many physicians have alerted authorities to the dangers of cheaper, unbranded, unapproved cosmetic injectables. Disreputable injectors and counterfeit, imported injectables present the greatest risk to a patient's appearance , and ultimately one's health.  There are professionals who inject substitute botulinum toxin instead of Botox. There are already 68 arrests and 29 convictions of health professionals. Thera are fillers such as liquid silicone that may cause serious health problems.
At New Horizons we only use FDA approved products. All injections are performed by Board Certified Physicians
