Sculptra® is a unique filler that gradually restores volume to the face by encouraging your skin’s natural production of its own building blocks. Because Sculptra is different from the other filler options that we perform at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, many of our patients have questions about what Sculptra is and how it can rejuvenate their appearance. Dr. Karlinsky, our very own Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, took the time to answer a few of the questions that she most often hears from our New York City patients.

When we think about skin-rejuvenation treatments that encourage younger, healthier-looking skin, we tend to focus on the complexion of our face. Yet, as many of our New York City patients know all too well, the wear and tear of their aging skin is not exclusive to their faces. The neck, chest, arms, and hands are also susceptible to the unfortunate effects of aging. More »

With so much misinformation being written about liposuction and body sculpting in general, Dr. Victoria Karlinsky decided it was time to provide the FACTS for those considering body sculpting.
Here it goes:
MYTH #1: Liposuction is a great tool for weight loss
THE FACT: Liposuction is not designed for weight loss. Rather it is intended to re-contour areas of your body where fat is resistant to diet or exercise.
MYTH #2: Once you have liposuction, the fat does not return
Liposuction can be performed anywhere on the body. The most popular areas include the arms, stomach, back, and thighs.
THE FACT: If you overeat, fat will return but it will be distributed differently and, most likely, stored in other areas of your body. My advice to patients is to protect your investment in improving how you look and feel…and eat wisely to maintain your beautiful new figure.
MYTH #3: Liposuction is painful
THE FACT: While there may be some mild discomfort after your treatment, we perform the most advanced and modern-day liposuction at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, which is not painful. In fact, we offer “Lunchtime Lipo” when only one area is being treated where patients can go right back to work. With treatment of multiple areas, you can resume your normal activities after a few days.
MYTH #4: After liposuction, you’ll have to wear a compression garment for three to six months
THE FACT: Liposuction used to require long-term compression garments but not anymore! Today, I recommend patients wear a compression garment for one-week day-and-night and another week part-time and then taper off.
MYTH #5: All liposuction requires general anesthesia
THE FACT: When one or two areas are being treated, local anesthesia is recommended. For multiple areas, I do use general anesthesia.
MYTH #6: Liposuction causes lumpy or puckered skin irregularities
THE FACT: Puckering is rare. The key is for the provider to not be overly aggressive and to remove all the fat in an area completely. This takes training, artistry, and experience. A skilled professional will leave the skin smooth and beautiful.
MYTH #7: Liposuction is dangerous
THE FACT: Of course, any surgical procedure carries certain risks but modern-day liposuction is extremely safe in the hands of a trained professional.
MYTH #8: Non-surgical fat reduction treatments are just as effective as liposuction
THE FACT: I have chosen liposuction as my body sculpting method of choice. While non-surgical fat reduction methods certainly have their pluses, they often require multiple treatments whereas liposuction only requires one treatment per area. Liposuction also has a more predictable outcome since it can more specifically target exactly what areas of fat will be removed.

One thing Dr. Karlinsky loves about being in the heart of Manhattan is being in the bustle of New York Fashion Week. The runways aren’t just about the clothes—but are also a preview of the beauty trends we can expect to see. While many styles come and go, one trend has continued to dominate the runways—a fresh face. The likes of Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid have all walked the catwalk baring seemingly perfect complexions.
