How about those lips?

After Lip Implant

Tired of looking in the mirror and feeling that your lips are getting smaller? Have you tried to improve them with injectable fillers? Fillers work but they are only temporary and can be expensive over the long run. Fat can be injected but usually requires an invasive procedure to harvest the fat and more anesthesia. The solution is a lip implant called Perma™ facial implant made by SurgSil™. It is a soft silicone implant that can give you the improvement you want and be long term. The procedure to insert the implants is easily done in the office using local anesthesia. The recovery is very short and most people will be healed within a couple of weeks. The older type implants were sometimes to firm and did not have a tapered contour making them unnatural. This implant is both soft and has the appropriate contour. Because of this improvement I have used the implant with excellent results. Also, the sizing is adjustable and different sizes can be used in the upper and lower lips.  See more results on our website…

Zyto is Here

Zyto Biocommunication

Zyto Hand Cradle

How does one know what supplements to take or what could be making you feel less than perfect? We have partnered with Peoples Pharmacy to bring in a new technology to help answer these questions called Zyto Bio Feedback. They have been using it with very positive results. The Zyto Bio Feedback machine is a unique tool for locating deficiencies in the body and determining which specific dietary, lifestyle, and supplemental changes will have the most lasting impact on bringing the body into homeostasis.The Zyto machine monitors the Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) of the body, interprets it, and decodes it into the computer system.  This virtual conversation with the body allows the machine to precisely determine what deficiencies are present and what specific changes will work to return balance to the body. We are going to integrate this information to maximize our patient’s health for the best surgical experience and recovery. Also, we are offering it as a way of achieving the  wellness program that meets your specific needs.

What Can I Do?

Turk Pipkin's Nobelity Project

With the holidays coming upon us quickly the atmosphere of giving increases. This is a special time and most of us have fond memories of our childhood when we got a special gift from Santa. Unfortunately, if we look at the world as a whole this type of experience is the exception rather than the rule. My wife and I are very blessed and realize that we cannot take this for granted. One of the ways we can show this is by giving or helping the less fortunate. We understand that the simple things like food, water and clothing can be luxuries in other countries as well as our own. Also, these needs are not just during the holidays but are year round. Both of us have traveled to parts of the world and have seen people in need. It gives you a different perspective that is hard to express in words. You are able to board a plane and leave the suffering behind, but the suffering still remains. I can remember there being charity groups for places like Africa since I was a child. One may ask why haven’t things changed and why do they still need help? Where is our money going and shouldn’t we help the needy here first? Yes, some of our charity has been wasted by corrupt people in power and the poor have not been help. However, times are a changing and our giving is now making a difference. Organizations like the ONE organization and DATA have shown us that it can. Locally, the Nobelity Project with Turk Pipkin and the A Glimmer Of Hope foundation with Philip Berber are changing lives in Africa with their work. Being a fan of U2 I have seen Bono make this cause his passion. He is not in it for the glory. We have seen him speak on two separate occasions. He made the point that the most needy person in the United States is so much better off than the same person in Africa. Whether a person lives or dies can be determined by where a person is born in Africa. Hardly the case in the US or in developed countries. So, lets empower one another to give not just during the holidays but year round to change another’s life. I know I can. Can YOU?

Turkey Time

Its almost here and time to get ready for the feast. We are trying to decide what to cook for the special day. I have fried a turkey in the past and it has been very moist and tasty. Sometimes something new for a traditional day is not received well by all. What do you do? Well, how about cook two turkeys? This year we are going to have a small crowd and cooking two birds would be too much. I might have to flip a coin. We have friends that have a ranch in Dripping Springs and they are so nice to have invited our family to stay there during the holiday. Last year, I was trying to shot a deer but wound up shooting a turkey. The triplets want Mommy and Daddy to shot both. We wish everyone a safe holiday and Go Horns.

Feel Better as Well…..

Plastic Surgery may go along way to make you look better but it is only part of the picture. Quite often we can reach our goals with surgery to rejuvenate our body.  However, it is important to consider how you feel on the inside and how you maintain results for the long run.  This is where wellness comes into play. Taking a daily vitamin and some limited exercise only scratches the surface. It is like having to put together a puzzle without all the pieces. We are individuals and what our body needs varies. At Hall Plastic Surgery/Rejuvenation Center we take this into consideration and can determine your specific needs. This way we can tailor a program that will make you feel better and maintain your wellness after surgery.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this past weekend Susan Komen Race for the Cure. It was a beautiful day and it was so awesome to see all the encouragement in the air. Special thanks to our office staff and Lindsey Rambo our team captain who help coordinate our team. Our T-shirt design won 2nd place in the competition. Our triplets survived the race and rode in the stroller. We know that breast cancer happens to people all around us and we want to be there for them.
