20th Global Anniversary of Restylane®

Galderma Celebrates 20th Global Anniversary of Restylane®
Restylane® Marks Heritage Milestone

FORT WORTH, Texas - June 10, 2016 - Galderma, a global leader focused on medical solutions in skin health, is proud to celebrate the significant milestone of the 20th global anniversary of the Restylane® portfolio of products. One of the world's most studied wrinkle fillers, Restylane has been used in more than 65 countries worldwide with over 28 million treatments administered globally.

"The launch of the Restylane dermal filler in Europe in 1996 and in the United States in 2003 helped to change the aesthetic landscape. It quickly became a household name, and sparked a shift in how many of my patients approached facial aging," said Chicago-based physician Steve Dayan. "This anniversary not only celebrates 20 years of being a great option for men and women who want natural-looking results, but also serves as a proof point for how well-placed my trust is in the long track record of safety and efficacy of Restylane products in my practice."

After more than two decades of research, the complete line of Restylane fillers - including Restylane®, Restylane-L®, Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine and Restylane® Silk - have well-defined safety profiles. With six major product approvals and four different indications, the Restylane family of products continues to deliver effective and proven aesthetic solutions to healthcare professionals and their patients allowing specialists to customize a treatment plan that's right for each individual.

Innovative Syringe Delivers Enhanced Ergonomics and Safety Building on the heritage of the milestones in the last 20 years, Galderma is committed to continuing its leadership role of Restylane innovation in the future.

"All of us at Galderma are inspired by this significant milestone for Restylane," said Kelly Huang, PhD, Vice President and General Manager, Aesthetic & Corrective Business Unit, Galderma, U.S. "The combination of the proven safety history backed by over 28 million treatments globally and a continual pipeline of innovation, such as our enhanced syringe introduction for key Restylane products, is a strong foundation for the Restylane brands to continue to support the goals of healthcare professionals and patients now and in the future."

Being a surgery scheduler has allowed me to be a part of a positive major change in someone’s life. I love getting to know our patients and seeing them through their process. It’s particularly amazing to watch the transformation that happens internally when someone changes something outwardly that they were unhappy about. Knowing that I have a small role getting patients to their goals gives me a sense of pride, and I also love knowing that my job has a positive impact. The team here at our practice is phenomenal, and I like that we always have the same goal: Do what’s best for the patient.

The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures Inspired by Celebrities


Whether or not you’re seriously considering cosmetic surgery, chances are you have, at one point or another, admired a celebrity look that you wish you could pull off yourself. With that in mind, there are many procedures out there that mimic the most sought-after celebrity-inspired looks.

Eyes
They’re the windows to the soul, and when it comes to famous ones, patients most often request eyelid lifts and recontouring procedures to give them the doe eyes of Anne Hathaway or Hugh Jackman’s twinkling squint. Hathaway’s look is ultra-feminine and wide-eyed, while Jackman conveys both masculinity and playfulness.

Nose
Moving down the face, the most requested slopes for noses are those of Natalie Portman and Jude Law. These choices also go along with the very feminine and masculine choices for eyes, though Portman’s delicate nose and Law’s more rugged profile do share a similar longer length.

Cheeks
For facial sculpting, many patients like the high cheekbones of January Jones. Another popular request is the slanting, defined look of Leonardo DiCaprio, which can be mimicked with facelift, threadlift, or browlift procedures and enhanced with any of our Medi Spa treatments.

Lips
When it comes to lip service, patients choose the wide pout of Scarlett Johansson over Angelina Jolie’s more pronounced yet still popular look. On the masculine side of the spectrum, the thin upper lip/full bottom lip smirk of Ashton Kutcher is a popular request for patients.

Chin
Proving that beauty inspires at every age, the most asked for chin shape is modeled after Halle Berry. Berry’s rounded yet defined face joins the strong, masculine jaw line of John Hamm on this list. Similar looks can be achieved with neck liposuction or chin augmentation.

Skin
When coming in for a microdermabrasion or Laser Genesis, Amy Adams’ glowing skin is an inspiration for many who want that flawless look. And Neil Patrick Harris is known for his healthy-looking skin.

Body
In terms of overall physique, there is little surprise that the most popular choice is Giselle B√ľndchen of Victoria’s Secret fame. The model’s long and lean figure is at the top of the most requested, along with Mark Wahlberg’s toned and muscular look.

It is important to note, of course, that it is not reasonable to expect exact replicas of these celebrity bodies. With experienced surgeons like Dr. Chester Cheng and Dr. Brett Stompro, however, you can have a celebrity-inspired look that complements your own natural beauty and gives you the confidence to look great every day. Contact us today for more information, if you have questions, or to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Stompro and His Staff are Awesome! The BEST!

Review on Dr. Stompro


5- Star Perfect Rating


"Dr. Stompro and his staff are awesome! The BEST! From my first appointment to my series of visits thereafter, everyone is friendly, kind, caring while also being the utmost professionals. At first, during the recovery process, I was a bit apprehensive and asked myself at times, what did I do? But Dr. Stompro was right - when we first met, he told me that I would be very happy with my results - and I am! Becoming a mother is tough both physically and mentally. I used to say I would never get work done but now, I'm all for do whatever helps you live a happier life. My husband and kids were very supportive and they are happy that I am now more content with myself.

I want to give a shoutout to some of the staff - Thank you as well to Stacy, Morgan, Lourdes, Jillian, and Chavon (and all the others I didn't name directly)! Your outstanding client service is one in a million!"

Important Tips for Post-Surgery Healing

When you’re preparing for a cosmetic procedure, there are a number of important things on your preparation list. Between arranging for transportation to and from your facility to making sure your home or workspace will be taken care of while you’re away, you’ll certainly have a lot on your mind.

Don’t forget, however, to keep in mind not just your pre-operative needs, but your post-surgery needs as well. The following tips will help you prepare for what comes after your cosmetic procedure experience.

Healing at Your Own Pace
Heal at Your Own Pace

Stay in contact with your surgeon

At the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng, we’re dedicated to being there for you at every step of the plastic surgery process, from beginning to end. This care does not stop when you leave our facility—after your procedure, you will be contacted by phone and a member of our staff will go through any questions you might have right away.

After this initial follow-up call, we encourage you to contact us at any time with your questions or concerns about your recovery. This process of healing is not just physical but also mental, and our staff at the offices of Stompro and Cheng is prepared and available 24 hours a day to provide the attention you need for a successful, speedy, and complete recovery.

Take advantage of post-op care opportunities

During the first week of your recovery period, you’ll be asked to come back to our offices for a checkup. Our doctors will provide a thorough examination to ensure that there have been no complications or setbacks with your procedure. This first appointment is also a great time to review the particular care methods you can do at home relating to your procedure. In addition, this appointment allows you to further build a relationship with your doctor that will continue with the lifetime post-operative appointments offered by our offices.

Heal at your own pace

Advances in medicine have made vast improvements in recovery time for virtually all cosmetic procedures. With the combination of smaller incisions, intraoperative anesthesia techniques, and better procedures, many patients return to their normal activities within a few days.

In addition, a better understanding of the benefits of gentle handling of the tissues during surgery limits swelling and bruising. That being said, it is essential that you take the time needed to fully recover, and remember that healing time will be different for each individual patient. By paying attention to your health and keeping an open line of communication with your surgeon and nurses, your recovery will be speedy and safe.

At the offices of Dr. Stompro and Dr. Cheng, our goal is to keep you informed before, during, and after your surgical experience. In addition to achieving your desired results, we’re dedicated to making your entire experience as comfortable and open as possible. If you’re ready to discuss more information on a cosmetic procedure or have questions at any stage of your process, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Call: 925-736-0401

Liposuction Options and Techniques

What are your Liposuction options?

A lot has changed since the earliest days of the liposuction surgery. The procedure used to require hospitalization and general anesthesia for every patient undergoing the surgery, and even occasionally required blood transfusions to replace all of the blood lost during the procedure

This was under the old “dry technique,” a liposuction technique that has basically been made obsolete by technological advances in liposuction since the 1990’s. Dr. Stompro mentions that most procedures today can be performed with local anesthesia and with much quicker recovery.

Here are some of the more common liposuction techniques that are available in today’s world:

  • The “Wet Technique” - Fluid is injected to the area of the procedure to help loosen fat cells and reduce bruising. Once the cells are loose, they are drawn out in a surgical vacuum device.
  • The “Super-Wet Technique” - The same basic idea is used for this procedure as the wet technique, but the amount of saline in the fluid used is more diluted. This surgery is preferred by some surgeons for the way it balances fluid levels.
  • The Tumescent Technique - A large amount of liquid is injected into the area of the procedure, with the contents of that liquid even more diluted than the wet and super wet techniques. More liquid means more space created in between muscles and fatty tissue, which gives the surgeon more space to operate. However, this procedure takes longer than both the wet technique and the super-wet technique.
  • Internal Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction - Ultrasonic vibrations are transmitted inside the body that works to break down fat cells. This liquefies the fat and makes it easier to remove. This option requires less movement by the surgeon, which means it is easier on the patient’s body. However, there is an increased risk of developing seromas, burns, necrosis or scarring
  • External Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction - Like the internal option, ultrasonic energy is used to liquefy the fat. But in the external option, the energy is applied from outside the body through the skin rather than from inside the body. Surgeons believe this creates less risk of seromas and necrosis.
  • Power-Assisted Liposuction - A specialized cannula, that moves mechanically, is used to reduce the amount and the speed of movements required by the surgeon. This is a more subtle, smooth surgery option, which is easier on the patient’s body. This is a relatively new procedure.
If you are interested in having a liposuction surgery done, Call: 925-736-0401 or use our online contact form to contact the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro, M.D., and Dr. Chester Cheng, M.D., to schedule a consultation to determine which of these options is right for you!

Plastic Surgery for Recent Mothers

Plastic Surgery for Recent Mothers
Motherhood is an undeniably beautiful experience, but dealing with your body after baby can be a challenge. If diet and exercise aren’t getting you to your body goals, the experienced surgeons at the offices of Dr. Stompro and Dr. Cheng can help! There are a variety of procedures that can get you back to your old self—or even better.

Belly

The most obvious problem area for new mothers is the abdomen. This area is considerably stretched during pregnancy. It can be especially difficult to go from baby bump back to your body before pregnancy. In situations where abdominal elasticity is a problem, a tummy tuck, can be especially effective. A tummy tuck is when loose skin and fat is removed and pulled tight. Tummy tuck surgery also helps eliminate stretch marks. For excess fat deposits around the body, liposuction is a great way to get rid of those last stubborn pounds.

Breast

Post-pregnancy can also be a good time for a breast lift. Changes in shape and size during pregnancy can result in a less than desirable look once the baby has been born. With a breast lift procedure, the nipple is elevated from the new lower position to a more natural, centered position. In addition, a breast reduction could be another option. A breast reduction resects breast tissue and excess skin, reducing the final volume and restoring a firmer look.

Beauty

With intensive labor and late nights taking care of a new baby, new moms deserve more than just a great body. With any of our Medi-Spa procedures, you can experience the pampering you need to make you feel rejuvenated and refreshed. From microdermabrasion to our advanced skincare line, SkinCeuticals can get you healthy, radiant skin no matter how few hours you—or your baby—may be sleeping.

At the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng, we’re dedicated to helping you make educated decisions about what cosmetic procedures are right for you. We’ll walk you through our processes and discuss risks, benefits, and payment options to make you feel comfortable and secure in your plastic surgery choice. If you’d like to set up a consultation for your new body after baby, contact our Plastic Surgery & MediSpa today for a complimentary consultation!

Skin Resurfacing: Laser vs. Fraxel

Fraxel
Laser vs. Fraxel

Skin resurfacing can restore and rejuvenate the skin. With time our skin shows signs of aging from the exposure to the sun and elements.

Until recently there were two treatment methods to rejuvenate the skin; ablative and non-ablative treatments. Ablative lasers treat deep into the dermis of the skin by removing the upper epidermis. It treats both the surface and deep layers of the skin. This means a more effective treatment of lines and wrinkles but with a longer recovery. It couples up nicely with surgery. Non-ablative treatments preserve to epidermis but never get deep into the skins dermis. This means an easy recovery but not as aggressive of a treatment.

Fraxel is a new technology that treats deep into the dermis while preserving the epidermis. It works by laying down a laser pattern which gets deep into the dermis without ablating or taking away the epidermis. This means a deep treatment without the prolonging recovery. Non-ablative lasers are appealing because there is little to no down time. Fraxel now bridges the gap between ablative and non-ablative treatments. It treats deep into the dermis, preserves the epidermis and has little to no down time. It usually takes 4-5 treatments spaced one month apart

At the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro, M.D, and Dr. Chester Cheng, M.D., our goal is to keep you informed before, during, and after your cosmetic experience. In addition to achieving your desired results, we’re dedicated to making your entire experience as comfortable and open as possible. If you have any questions about your cosmetic procedure or want to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors, please don’t hesitate to contact us today!

Eyelid Lift Procedure

They say that with age comes wisdom. What no one likes to note, however, is that wisdom often comes with wrinkles. If you’re noticing the wrinkles that come with years of smiling and squinting, an eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty procedure, might be the procedure for you. The skilled surgeons at the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro, M.D., and Dr. Chester Cheng, M.D., have helped many patients regain a more youthful look with this procedure.

An eyelid lift procedure removes excess skin and tightens bagginess around the eyes. While most of the wrinkles around the eyes are heavily etched into the skin, the tightening provided by an eyelid lift procedure will help produce a more youthful appearance. Laser resurfacing, such as Erbium laser skin resurfacing procedures, can also be used in conjunction with blepharoplasty for enhanced results. Learn more about the eyelid lift, blepharoplasty procedure.

An essential part of preparing for plastic surgery is consulting with your doctor to discuss your desired results. With blepharoplasty procedures, it is especially important to consult your doctor to establish realistic expectations for your post-surgery look. A blepharoplasty, on its own, is designed to improve eye appearance as much as possible in mild cases of drooping and wrinkling. Therefore, if a patient has very droopy brows it may not be possible to make a significant change in the upper eyelid area solely with a blepharoplasty procedure. This can be achieved with an additional forehead lift.

See Before and After Eyelid Lift Pictures

An eyelid lift procedure is a good start to gaining a more youthful appearance and is a satisfactory change for many patients. By keeping an open mind and developing a line of open and honest communication with one of our surgeons, Dr. Stompro or Dr. Cheng, you can get the look you aspire to.

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. If your eyes are showing an older age than you feel, contact us today and set up a complimentary consultation. The experienced surgeons at the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng will find the best procedure or series of surgeries to make you look as young as you feel!

Plastic Surgery & MediSpa Treatments For The Holidays

A Holiday Present for You: The Benefits of Having Plastic Surgery over the Holiday Break

If you’ve been looking for the perfect time to finally get the cosmetic procedure you’ve been putting off, you might want to consider getting it done over the holiday break.

The holiday season can be a stressful time. We spend the majority of our time worrying about pleasing other people that we often forget to think about ourselves. Why not slow the pace down and treat yourself? You can consider this a Christmas gift to yourself.

There are quick MediSpa treatments but one of the more common cosmetic procedures for women is a tummy tuck. This is desirable for women who are already maintaining a healthy weight level through diet and exercise, but still struggle with excess skin and fat deposits around the midsection. This is usually from pregnancy or weight loss.

Before you decide to undergo the surgery, there are several things you must consider.

The Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

Looking for a new you? Dr. Stompro mentions that Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Whether you’ve just had a baby or lost a substantial amount of weight, or just can’t shake those last stubborn pounds, a tummy tuck is a safe and effective way to regain the body you had or obtain the body you want.

During a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, the loose skin and fat in the abdominal area is removed. In the case after childbearing or weight loss, the weakness or laxity of the abdominal wall is repaired before removing the excess skin and fat. This skin and fat is then pulled and excised. The procedure is especially effective for removing stretch marks in the lower abdomen. After the remaining skin is tightened, the navel is refreshened for a natural look.

When discussing your desired look with your surgeon, there are a number of things to consider. First, while tummy tucks work well to remove stretch marks from the lower abdomen, in some cases not all stretch marks can be eliminated. It is also important to keep in mind that your safety is our doctor’s foremost concern. He will remove as much fat and skin as is safe, while considering the optimal look and healing.

You will also need to consider your skin type and age when planning with your doctor. These factors will affect the obtainable results, as will your weight. It is best if you have been at a stable weight for at least six months prior to your surgery to ensure your results can be maintained in the long run. Patients who intend to be pregnant in the near future should wait until after child bearing.

The results are very dramatic and long lasting. Your age, skin type and physical conditioning all will influence the outcome. It is important to know that the staff at the offices of Dr. Brett Stompro and Dr. Chester Cheng will always be available to answer any of your questions, before or after your surgery.

We invite you to one of our four Bay Area offices in Danville, Livermore, Hayward or Tracy to discuss a new you.

Oh No, I Hit 40!

The 40's are a time when the aging process really begins to set in. We typically start to see the earlier signs of aging around the eyes and forehead. The skin around the eye is prone to wrinkle and show redundancy. The upper eyelids and forehead can begin to droop and give a tired or sad appearance. Thus it's no surprise that patients between the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo an eyelid and/or brow lifting surgery in order to minimize these changes. The lower eyelids are treated by removing or tightening skin as well as treating fat pockets. Dr. Stompro will consult with you and discuss a treatment plan with you.

Liposuction for Men and Women After 30

Man and Woman
Once men and women reach their 30's, their metabolism begins to slow down. They notice a change in the way their bodies deposit fat even if their exercise pattern and diet have remained the same. Certain body parts store stubborn fat that is hard to lose even with healthy eating and exercise. Liposuction has traditionally been the remedy to this problem. We have seen an increase in the popularity of newer technologies that provide less invasive options for fat reduction. However, liposuction remains time honored and consistent in providing the most predictable results. Learn more about the liposuction techniques that are right for you.

A variety of techniques are available to safely remove fat and sculpt curves on your body. Call 925-736-0401 or use our Plastic Surgery and MediSpa form mail and make your appointment with Dr. Stompro today!

Brow Lift to Improve Your Expressions

Many times, our expressions reflect the way we are feeling. Unfortunately for some people that is not always the case.

Some people appear to be angry or sad even when they are not feeling that way. They may even have a sagging brow or appear tired all the time even when they are not. Sometimes heredity or the way we age can be a factor in how our facial skin at the forehead has developed, creating a permanent look to it that makes people think we may be angry with them or feeling sad ourselves. As this aging progresses, skin wrinkling and loss of tone can occur in the forehead area causing a permanent sagging of the brow resulting in this tired or sad look and aggravating the appearance of excess skin in the upper eyelids.


A browlift procedure is designed to provide you with a natural rejuvenated appearance!

How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon

Not All Plastic Surgeons are Alike - Look for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
When a patient begins a search to find a plastic surgeon, one of the most common things he or she is not aware of is that there is a difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is performed by many physicians, and unfortunately, some are not under the guidance of a properly credentialed board. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only board acknowledged and approved by the National Board of Medical Specialties. That means, members certified by that board are held to the highest standards as it pertains to skills, knowledge, judgment, safety and ethics in that particular specialty. Over the years, board certified plastic surgeons, and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, have been dedicated to continuously improving plastic surgery techniques through intense research and clinical trials driven towards patient safety and outcomes.

Dr. Stompro and Dr. Cheng are both Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. Read more about Dr. Stompro. For a private complimentary consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons (Dr. Brett Stompro or Dr. Chester Cheng) feel free to call 925-736-0401 or use our contact form mail to request more information today.
