Choosing the Best Facelift for You

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on May 3, 2019 3:30:44 PM

Today we are faced with an overwhelming amount of information about various non-surgical and surgical facelift procedures; many promising to make you look younger for years to come with little recovery time.  

Dr. Prashant Soni, Board Certified Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Advanced Specialty Care, discusses various facial rejuvenation techniques to improve different problem areas so you can make an informed choice about which procedure would work best for you.

Before delving into the specific procedures that are effective, it helps to understand the basic physiology of the aging face, specifically the area of the face below the cheekbone down to the jaw line. Facial aging in this zone leads to the drawn, tired appearance that confronts us in in the mirror and often appears worse in photographs.

Plastic Surgeon by Day, Artist by Night

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jan 17, 2019 1:20:44 PM

For Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Prashant Soni, his artistic talent extends far beyond the operating room.

By day, Dr. Soni's canvas is the human body where he combines advanced medicine with precision artistry to carry out complex cosmetic and reconstructive procedures from facelifts to post-masectomy breast reconstructions. But outside of seeing patients at Advanced Specialty Care or performing surgeries at the hospital, he can be found chalking up entirely different works of art with his family--on a chalkboard. (See pictures of his chalk art below!)

What was initially a central space for family notes and reminders, the chalkboard in his house quickly transformed into a canvas where whimsical drawings, often inspired by the unabridged creativity of his three children, come to life.

Following Mohs Surgery, Consider Involving a Plastic Surgeon

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Oct 18, 2018 4:33:47 PM

The threat of skin cancer isn't just limited to summer months. For our dermatologists and plastic surgeons, we treat patients with skin cancer year-round.

While there are different treatment options for patients, such as a plastic surgeon removing the lesion or having Mohs surgery by a dermatologist, an important and often unthought of consideration, is how the wound will be closed after skin cancer is removed. 

Dr. Soni, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon, recently performed a wound closure on a patient's face after they underwent Mohs surgery from a local dermatologist. Schedules were coordinated between the two doctors in order to ensure that the patient could be seen by Dr. Soni immediately after the Mohs surgery.

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Feb 24, 2016 12:12:28 PM

Most of what we see and hear today concerning the “state of the art” in plastic surgery focuses on the face. Yet many of us know that a person’s hands often expose their age even after having had a wonderful facelift.
