"Get QWO with Ho - I've been self-conscious about my cellulite for years. When Dr.Ho mentioned a. new treatment to help with my confidence I couldn't resist! I've just done two of the three treatments so far and I already see amazing results. The cellulite is still there but way smoother and less noticeable since when I first started.The injection itself didn't hurt, but tender and a lot of bruising the day after.Would definitely recommend both the QWO and Dr.Ho for these treatments."- J. / RealSelf / May 13, 2021
"I can't recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don't want to look like I'm "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation with Implants?
Prospective patients for breast implant surgery should be physically healthy with fully developed breasts. If you are dissatisfied with the shape of your chest because they appear lifeless, you may benefit from this aesthetic breast treatment. Moreover, if your breasts have been affected by aging, nursing, or weight loss, this treatment can give them life with increased volume. Some individuals with these concerns may also require a breast lift. Breast implants may be a welcome solution if you weight train or have little to no natural breast mass.
How Is Breast Implant Surgery Performed?
Incision type, as well as implant placement, are factors that are generally made ahead of surgery. After a small incision is made, the silicone or saline implant will be placed through the incision and deposited into a surgically created pocket and then fitted into its correct position. Once the implant is in position, the incision is carefully secured with sutures. There are a variety of methods that may be applied for implant placement. These are either under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue but over the pectoral muscle. Where to place the implant is based on several factors, including the type and degree of implant enlargement. Regardless of the incision type, scarring is usually minimal.
What Results Can I Expect from Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that may last from an hour to several hours. It is performed using general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. All activities must be limited within 48 hours after surgery. There will be bruising and swelling, and a compression support bra will also be worn to help in healing. It is normal to feel tightness around the chest area as the skin adjusts to the breast’s new shape. Most patients may resume normal activities within seven days. However, exercise should be avoided for at least 4 – 6 weeks. It takes at least six months for the breasts to look, feel, and function normally in regards to softness, sensation, and final placement.
