"Amazing Spa and Services! - I have done a dermaplane and facial combo for years but Beyond Beautiful and Sara in specific are amazing! Dermaplaning takes off all of the dead surface skin and the hydro facial cleans your skin To perfection. It feels and looks amazing afterwards. Dr. Vu does is spectacular with Botox, natural but smooth. I would highly recommend."- T. / RealSelf / Aug 13, 2020
"I went to Beyond Beautiful for PicoSure laser treatments for my hyperpigmentation from years and years of acne. I was nervous because I knew the negative effects lasers can have on ethnic skin. However, Sarah was very thorough with her explanations and treatment plan. She knows what she is doing and it made it that much easier to trust her. She also has had experience with doing laser treatments on asian skin tones. The laser itself was not painful. Numbing cream is applied for 15-30 minutes prior to the laser. Your face is red afterwards for about 30 minutes, but otherwise no huge downtime like other lasers. I was able to go about my day as normal the day of. I started seeing results within 3-4 weeks and could see my hyperpigmentation fading well! Overall, I am happy with my treatment and Sarah and will be getting more treatments in the future from her!"- B.H. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"I had my ZO 3 step peels earlier this year- one in January and the 2nd in February. Sarah did such an awesome job. It was not painful at all- there is a fan you can hold to keep the cool air on your face. Sarah talked me through the process and the aftercare. There was no peeling for almost 3 days. It started peeling around my chin and mouth, then the 4th day it started working its way up my face. The peeling was not painful and was completely gone after about the 6th day. My face was refreshed and had new pink skin. If you are considering this peel I highly recommend! It is worth the money and so easy. Sarah can answer all your questions and makes herself available if you have questions throughout the process. I will be doing another one this winter!"- K.C. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done - The process was so easy and Dr. Ho and staff were kind, friendly and helpful. I had this procedure done by Dr. Ho about 10 years ago and it was time for a touch-up. The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done. I just looked fresher and less hagged-out and tired. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wanted to look a bit fresher and happier."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2020
Am I a Candidate for Autologous FAT Breast Augmentation?
The decision regarding whether or not to have breast enlargement surgery is personal. If you are thinking about having this surgery, it is important you do it for yourself. You should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are fully developed and be the appropriate age to have implants. If you are unhappy with the size of your chest because they look flat, you may benefit from this cosmetic breast treatment. In addition, if your breasts have changed due to aging, nursing, or weight loss, this surgical procedure can bring them back to life with increased volume. You may also need a breast lift. It is a welcomed answer if you work out with weights or have an overall lack of natural breast mass.
How is Autologous fat grafting to the breast performed?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Aliano Messina, we will decide on the target area(s) for fat removal. The procedure will be performed in a certified facility under general anesthesia. Tumescent fluid for liposuction will be infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissues of the fat donor site through a small incision. Then we will utilize a cannula to remove the unwanted fat, which will then be purified and transferred to the breasts. In this way, fat from the thighs, stomach, or buttocks can be used to improve your chest. Depending on the size and number of targeted areas, the procedure can typically last anywhere from 2 – 4 hours.
What Results Can I Expect?
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient surgery with the patient under general anesthesia. Each patient will be taken into recovery and monitored before being released. You will be sent home wearing an Ace wrap or surgical bra. Several days after surgery, the swelling and bruising will start to decrease, and the breasts will begin to feel normal as they fall into their new position. Most patients can return to normal activities within several days; however, physical exertion, such as exercise, should be delayed for about 6 – 8 weeks. In most cases, this procedure can be a life-changer for many patients, allowing them the opportunity to feel more confident.
