How Does the Sun Change My Skin?
 "Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily, taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you're young, it will definitely show later in life."

Fat Grafting Breast Enhancement

Fat Grafting

The cosmetic treatment many women have dreamed of -- taking the fat from their hips and thighs and redistributing it into their breasts. Pacific Cielo can use the fat from your own body, and strategically place it into your breast. Breast enhancement using fat grafting (lipoaugmentation) rather than silicone or saline implants employs fat suctioned from the patients fatty areas. This type of breast surgery can be used to increase the size of the breast, or to fill in defects or abnormalities in existing breasts. Enhancing the appearance after breast reconstruction and softening the look of existing implants. Lipoaugmentation of the breasts may offer patients permanent breast augmentation with a natural look and feel with the benefit of body contouring through liposuction -- without the requirement for incisions or implants.
Fat Grafting Breast Enhancement Candidates
Currently, fat transfer to the breast is considered an option for women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts whether it is to enlarge or to lift sagging tired breasts. Lipoaugmentation is also a great way to repair implant-related issues like rippling, wrinkling, and can also be used to soften the overall look of existing breast implants by "blurring" the line between implant and breast tissue. Potential candidates must also have adequate fat harvesting sites on their body.
Fat Transfer to the Breast: The Procedure
Fat transfer to the breast involves two distinct procedures: harvesting and injecting.
The fat cells are acquired through liposuction. Once harvested through a syringe, the cells are processed for transplantation. This involves removing anesthetics, lipids and medical fluids from the fat. The goal is to obtain healthy fat cells devoid of other tissue, which increases the likelihood of successful cell transfer and reduces the chances of injecting unwanted substances with the fat. The healthier and more pure the injected material, the greater the yield of viable fat cells.
After processing, the fat cells are carefully injected. These injections are very small and precise in their positioning. There are a few areas that the injections can be made, your doctor will decide the best action according to the specific needs of your body. The injections can be made in the space between the skin and the breast capsule surrounding the breast and/or behind the breast between the breast and chest wall. This meticulous technique enables our plastic surgeon to sculpt the breasts as desired.
Breast shaping andaugmentation with fat grafting provides a more natural aesthetic result for patients. It is also more natural for your body with no chance of rejection, for instance,
an implant. The placement of the fat grafts allows for dramatic or subtle shaping of the breast in a manner previously not attainable. This type of shaping is extremely difficult, time consuming and impossible with implants or surgery. The result is a natural appearing reshaped breast in which telltale signs of implants and surgery are absent - the resultant breast is completely fluid and natural appearing.

2012 Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

By: Pacific Cielo Surgery Center

Most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in 2012

The 2012 National Totals for Cosmetic Procedures, hot off the press from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), answers an interesting question: "What cosmetic procedures do Americans think are important enough to invest hard-earned dollars in?"

Breasts regain their number one status: Breast augmentation has regained its status in 2012 as the leading surgical procedure in the United States after slipping back into second position in 2011. This is no surprise; today's low cut and scooped out tops demand attractive cleavage. Also, we offer noninvasive breast augmentation with fat grafting. Women have traditionally favored silicone, but now fat transfers offer a natural look and feel. There were 369,928 breast augmentations performed in 2012 compared with 316,848 in 2011.

Last year's frontrunner, liposuction or liposculpture, had 313,011 procedures in 2012 compared with 325,332 procedures in 2011. Americans used noninvasive technologies to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat in 2012.

The face is up front and center
: You can't ignore the face when Facebook, LinkedIn and a million and one dating sites put your face. The facelift went from 116,086 procedures in 2011 to 119,006 procedures in 2012. This growth is especially significant when you consider the huge proliferation of noninvasive injectable, laser and other skin tightening procedures we have been spending money on. Botox is still the leader of the pack, skyrocketing from 2,619,739 procedures in 2011 to 3,257,913 procedures in 2012. 

Rhinoplasty aka "the nose job" also had a healthy increase, from 126,107 procedures in 2011 to 143,801 procedures in 2012. But otoplasty (ear surgery) also increased. Both rhinoplasty and otoplasty procedures made headlines in 2012 when some parents agreed to allow their children to undergo these procedures so these children would not be bullied.

The "stronger" sex: 
Men are not only removing body hair, they are also paring down their overdeveloped breasts. Gynecomastia (male breast reduction) had significant growth, from 17,645 procedures in 2011 to 22,736 in 2012.

Weight loss-related surgeries: 
With the growing phenomenon of bariatric surgery and the extreme skin laxity that follows dramatic weight loss, body contouring surgery shows steady growth. Lower body lift rose from 9175 to 10,119, abdominoplasty rose from 149,410 surgeries in 2011 to 156,508 surgeries in 2012, upper arm lift rose from 18,709 to 22,969 and thigh lift from 13,878 to 16,517.
 These are just some of the cosmetic procedure statistics that are making news. For more information please call our office at 858-756-5678 or visit our website at

Not Only Look, But Feel Your Best This Summer

By Dario Moscoso

According to a recent report from USA Today, new research conducted by the RAND Corporation shows a dramatic increase in the number of American adults battling obesity. Roland Sturm, a lead author of the study states “obesity is going up very fast,” with severe consequences for quality of life, health and medical costs. Most overweight and obese individuals are aware that diet and exercise are critical for overcoming obesity. But for some, liposuction plastic surgery can be an effective complement to healthy lifestyle choices. Liposuction targets stubborn fat, curbing obesity and improving health while also enhancing one’s overall appearance in the process. As with any plastic surgery procedure, however, it is important for patients to discuss liposuction with an experienced surgeon before undergoing treatment.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a safe, effective procedure that removes fat and temporarily reduces cellulite for improved patient health and overall appearance. By eliminating excess fat, liposuction aids in weight loss – one of the best strategies to reduce risk for heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. In addition, liposuction can be used to reshape and rejuvenate the contours of the body for a more balanced and streamlined physique, while also reducing the appearance of cellulite for smoother, younger-looking skin. Surgical fat removal is ideal for patients who have tried and failed to lose weight or eliminate fat in certain parts of the body through diet and exercise. By combining a healthy lifestyle with liposuction surgery, patients can achieve the body of their dreams.
