The use of Latisse for enhancing eyebrows is currently off label. Though, there are several cases of patients applying Latisse to brows and having significant effect; Brows became thicker, fuller and longer.

Cosmetic surgery has been proven to enhance an individuals appearance. In previous years, there has been a stigma around cosmetic surgery. Now, it is common for mothers to consider cosmetic surgery and have mommy makeovers. The key to having a good operation is finding the right surgeon, that has the knowledge and experience in his or her field. At the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, Dr. Usha Rajagopal has over 20 years of experience in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Usha Rajagopal uses techniques such as fat transfer and fat grafting to create a more natural aesthetically pleasing appearance. We love that society is more accepting of fuller figured women who look natural. Dr. Usha Rajagopal also performs procedures such as Brazilian butt lifts instead of butt implants to create a more natural figure. We want to acknowledge celebrities who support cosmetic surgery in society and the benefits of it.

 

Rapper and recording artist, Iggy Azalea told Vogue magazine – April, 2015 that she has thought of having breast implants her entire life. She admitted to recently having the operation done, and her breasts fit her figure beautifully. Azalea is also known for her gorgeous behind, we wonder if she has also had a Brazilian butt lift.

 

Singer and actress, Christina Milian has considered having butt implants on her recent show, Christina Milian Turned Up on E! We admire the fact that Milian has been open to the possibility of the procedure with her family and the media. We believe that Milian can benefit from a Brazilian butt lift to create a proportioned and flattering figure.

 

Voluptuous actress, Scarlett Johansson has recently told Marie Claire – 2015 that she definitely believes in plastic surgery. Johansson is an example of a talented and beautiful individual who supports cosmetic surgery and Dr. Usha Rajagopal and her all female staff admire Scarlett’s honesty.

Choose Dr. Usha Rajagopal because she’s the best plastic surgeon! You’re wasting your time if you’re trying to find a better plastic surgeon. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would.

Can You Undo Your Tattoo?

Tattoo snafu? Dr. Usha Rajagopal can help!

Tattoos no longer have to have the same staying power as the olden days. We all change over time, and eventually tattoos we loved in the past may not be as cherished now as they once were. Now we have the choice to say goodbye to unwanted ink. At San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we’ve helped countless patients part ways with tattoos they’re no longer happy with. So, if you’ve got some ink you’re wanting to out in your past, we can help. We’ve been among the best Bay Area tattoo removal providers since 1997.

Chances are f you’re considering parting ways with your ink, you probably have a lot of questions. What exactly does it entail? Does it hurt? How does it work? How much will it cost? How many sessions will it take? With so many questions weighing on your mind, we wanted to share this article by Corrie Shenigo as posted on Smart Beauty Guide in March 2015.  It gives a bit of history on tattoo removal as well as some insight on the latest technology for getting rid of those unwanted tattoos. But most importantly it is written by someone with a tattoo they’re wanting to undo.

Here’s a preview of Corrie’s great article:

“(Through the years my tattoo) has become something that I’m less and less jazzed about. Regret is probably too strong a word — in fact, I don’t think about it that often as it’s strategically placed somewhere I can’t see without enlisting the help of a mirror — but when I’m pining over the low-back of an award-season dress or shopping for a vacation bikini I often think, “Hmm… I wonder what would happen if I attempted to undo my tattoo?”

At the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we would never have guessed!   Many became familiar with the Tom Ford brand, when Jay-Z named a song after the designer. Ford has said, “Dressing well is a form of good manners”. Not only do we admire Fords sense of style, but love that he caters to women as well as men! Celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Lopez have been photographed wearing Fords latest on the red carpet. In addition to Fords fashion line, he has a beauty and fragrance line that is worthy enough to mention. It looks like Ford will continue taking over the fashion world in the next few years!

Zoolander Paris Fashion WeekParis Fashion Week entertained with actors, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson who joined in on the catwalk at the Valentino fashion show.

Derek Zoolander and Hansel have obviously come to terms with one another – graciously sharing the runway in the latest Italian ensembles. The only factor that could have contributed to the appearances of Stiller and Wilson on the runway would be comedian, Will Ferrell making a cameo at the show (maybe next year, Valentino).

Stiller explains to the media that their upcoming movie, “Zoolander 2” hones in on reinvention and relevancy of their model personas. Dr. Usha Rajagopal specializes in recreation of a beautiful youthful appearance at the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in the Bay Area.

 

We are thrilled to witness the new installation of Zoolander including stunning Spaniard, Penelope Cruz and fresh faced model Cara Delevingne. Actress, Cruz is not unfamiliar with the silver screen. Delevingne has made small appearances in films, but is well recognized for her intense glare and thick gorgeous brows. At the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center we are anticipating the film and are looking forward to the beauty and comics included on the runway that is sure not to disappoint!

bay area butt lift

 

Worldwide, many have considered the procedure of a buttock augmentation. Those who consider an augmentation crave a more balanced and youthful appearance. Weight loss or aging can be another factor in considering a change for a more proportional bottom half. The enlargement of the buttocks has become so common in pop culture, that singer and actress Christina Milian shamelessly wore temporary buttock implants on the red carpet. In Milian’s new television show, “Christina Milian Turned Up”, she worries that her implants may move or even slip out. There is a more natural and safe option to implants such as using the body’s own body fat source to contour a beautiful behind. Fat grafting is a popular method, utilizing natural fat tissue to enlarge or reshape the buttocks otherwise known as the Brazilian butt lift. Fully shaped buttocks are proving to be a symbol of femininity and sensuality.

 

Dr. Usha Rajagopal does not use butt implants in her augmentation surgeries at the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center. Butt implants may harden over time and lose their natural shape. Surgery involves the incision of silicone implants which are closed with sutures. Other complications may include infection to the implants, and even nerve damage. In addition, special care for silicone implants include not being able to sit on the buttocks for about four weeks. In comparison, Brazilian butt lifts create a more natural, flattering shape with the use of the body’s natural fat. Fat transfer uses suction tubes to remove fatty tissue through liposuction from any area such as the hips, thighs, abdomen or back. The fat is reinjected and grafted at multiple levels. The patient may require up to three visits to the doctor for a permanent contoured behind using the body’s own resources. Fat grafting is an excellent way to contour the buttocks naturally. Recovery time for a Brazilian butt lift involves a one week period off from work, and three weeks away from heavy lifting or exercise.

If you’re looking for a Bay Area Butt Lift specialist, look no further than Dr. Rajagopal. Contact us today to set up a consultation to see if our butt lift procedure is right for you.  What are you waiting for?
