a new me?

Hi Anti-age

I recently lost a MOUNTAIN of weight and in the process of re-inventing myself. I need to know how much a breast -lift cost as well as what I can do to make me look a couple of years younger? Is there really something that can tighten the facial skin and clear pigmentation etc? I bought La Mer cream but am not really as impressed with it as everyone have been raving about the product.

Hi “Sexy Betty”, thank you for the question. Congratulations on the weight loss and I wish you all the best on the new path you have chosen.

The price for a breast lift will vary from surgeon to surgeon and your best option would be to phone a few plastic surgeons’ rooms to get a quote (one is most probably looking in the range of R 30,000.00).

You have a number of options to improve the appearance of the skin:

Topical products: NeoStrata, Environ, Skin Nutrition, La Prairie Swiss Cellular Range, Dr Perricone, etc.
A good SPF that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide.
Adding topical antioxidants such as Prevage MD, Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
One can also consider adding a glycolic acid peel regime to the above topical products to enhance the effects on the skin and pigmentation clearance.
Skin Rejuvenation Technologies:
Syneron emax, Fraxel, Lumenis Ultra FX, Ellipse IPL, etc.
Skin Tightening Technologies:
Syneron Refirme, Thermage, Titan.
