Are you unhappy with the look or functionality of your nose? Nasal surgery is a method of recontouring the nose to make it more aesthetically pleasing or better able to function correctly.
Your nasal surgery will require around one to three hours to complete. Your individual surgery time will depend on multiple factors, including how much tissue alteration is taking place and the types of techniques that are used (grafts, open vs. closed rhinoplasty, fillers, etc.)
Nasal surgery can enhance your appearance and your quality of life. To get started, arrange a consultation at our office by contacting us. Dr. Wael Kouli, a skilled, board-certified surgeon with years of experience, regularly serves patients in the San Diego area. Call or email today!
If you’re interested in having your eyelid areas rejuvenated so that you can look younger and more refreshed, try blepharoplasty surgery. This procedure is a time-tested treatment for loose skin, wrinkles, and more.
Patients are curious about how long the effects of blepharoplasty surgery will last. Like most surgical procedures, blepharoplasty alters the body tissues and thus provides concrete, long-lasting benefits.
If you’re getting lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, you’ll be happy to learn that patients very rarely need to ever come in for a second procedure. For upper blepharoplasty surgery, the benefits may stay with you for a minimum of around five to seven years from the date of the procedure.
Looking for a way to get a more desirable rear end with some curve to it? Fat transfer injections are an effective method of giving patients volume and curve in their derriere. This procedure is known as the Brazilian butt lift.
The first part of the Brazilian butt lift is liposuction, because you can’t have fat transfer injections without first harvesting the fat. During the liposuction process, your surgeon will take fat cells from trouble areas of your body with the aid of a cannula, which is a thin, sharp tube. The fatty deposits will be broken up, and the cells will be sucked out through the cannula.
To find out more about fat transfer injections, liposuction, or any other aspect of the Brazilian butt lift, speak with Dr. Wael Kouli. Dr. Kouli is a board-certified surgeon with years of experience. To arrange a consultation with Dr. Kouli, contact us today.
An eye lift, also known as blepharoplasty surgery, is an ideal procedure for rejuvenating the eyelids. Some patients have puffy bags under their eyes and sagging skin and wrinkles on their lower eyelids; for these patients, a lower eyelid lift will be enough to resolve these signs of aging.
The cause of the wrinkling, sagging, and eye bags in the lower eyelid area is a gradual weakening of the tissues with age. The body produces less collagen and elastin protein as we get older, leading to less-elastic skin, which sags. Muscle tissue also sags after becoming weaker and less supportive. Without the supportive muscle tissue, fatty tissue can droop. An eye lift can remove sagging skin and alter muscle and fatty tissue.
Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon in San Diego, is the right surgeon to choose for your eye lift procedure. Dr. Kouli�s years of experience and great results speak for themselves. To find out more about the procedures we offer, contact our office and arrange an appointment.
The forehead lift, or brow lift, involves the removal of various facial tissues in order to rejuvenate the forehead and brow. Once you arrive home from your forehead lift surgery, the forehead lift recovery process will begin.
As part of your forehead lift recovery process, you’ll most likely be able to return to get medical sutures or clips taken out within a week. If medical screws were used, they can be taken out within two weeks. By this time, the incisions will be well into the healing process and the areas will be looking closer to normal.
Forehead lift recovery should be taken quite seriously and the doctor’s instructions followed to the letter. Doing so will lead to better results and fewer complications overall. Speak with Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon, to get more information about forehead lift post-operative care. Make an appointment – contact our office today.
A person’s eyelids can say a lot about how well they are aging. Many patients come in asking for eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, to recontour their eyelids. When one specifically has issues with the upper eyelids, upper eyelid surgery can be used to correct them.
Upper lid eyelid surgery addresses the sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles that often occur in the top lids as one ages. During this procedure, excess drooping skin tissue is trimmed away from the upper lids, leaving the area looking smooth and rejuvenated.
To find out more about upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, and the other aesthetic procedures being offered at Esthetica of San Diego, the Center of Cosmetic Surgery, contact our office for an appointment.

After anesthesia has been administered and the endoscopic brow lift’s small incisions have been created, the surgeon will insert the endoscope. While this tool is occupied, another tool will be busy in one of the other tiny incisions. This second tool will be used to alter the underlying facial tissues, removing tissue as necessary to smooth out the areas.

Unfortunately, for many, the thighs can be a magnet for unwanted excess body fat. Large thighs may be a burden, but they do not have to be a permanent one. Thigh liposuction can be used to take out fatty tissue and leave the thighs looking toned and fit!
During thigh liposuction, a cannula is used to suction out the excess fat. A cannula is a thin tube with a sharp, pointed end. This pointed end handily breaks up any stubborn clusters of cells. The loosened cells are then removed through the tube, reducing the thigh in size.
Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon with years of experience and numerous satisfied patients, will be happy to explain the thigh liposuction procedure in detail. To make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Kouli, contact our office today.
Blepharoplasty surgery is eyelid surgery meant to rejuvenate the eye area, removing any bothersome signs of aging. When it comes to this procedure, you have some options.
If you need only one eyelid recontoured, this is known as unilateral blepharoplasty. This can be performed on the left or right upper or lower eyelid.

For a highly accurate procedure with smaller incisions than a traditional forehead lift, come in for an endoscopic forehead lift. This lift surgery is able to erase wrinkles and more.
One of the key differences between the endoscopic forehead lift and other kinds of forehead lifts is the tools involved. In order to get a better look at the internal facial tissues, your surgeon will use an endoscope. This tool has a light and a tiny camera, both of which aid in giving the doctor more precision during the procedure. The endoscope is connected to a monitor, which shows the tissues on a larger scale.
If you’re having trouble keeping your eyelashes in good condition as a result of the aging process, you may need eyelash rejuvenation treatment. Latisse is a popular treatment, serving to regrow and strengthen lashes.
Latisse should be applied on the upper eyelids, specifically at the area directly above the eyelash line. Only a single drop will be necessary for each upper eyelid. When applying this medication, begin at the area closest to the nose and work outward.
With regular treatments of Latisse, you’ll experience quality eyelash rejuvenation in no time! To give yourself the beautiful eyelashes you deserve, contact our office and set up an appointment. During a consultation with Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon with years of experience, he will examine your lashes and determine whether Latisse is right for you.
It’s vital to take post-operative care into account when considering any plastic surgery procedure. When undergoing male chest recontouring, you’ll be numbed with some form of anesthesia. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll still be feeling numbed and woozy, so you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home.
For a day or two, you may also need this friend or family member to aid with any household chores or tasks. After this period, you’ll be able to do tasks on your own again. Be gentle with your body as it heals from your male chest recontouring.
Once your body has healed fully from male chest recontouring, you’ll be able to enjoy your more masculine-looking chest. To arrange a consultation, contact our office. Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon, will be happy to help, so call or email today.
hen deciding on the right plastic surgery procedure for you, it’s always important to take recovery time into consideration. Recovery time affects your ability to work, exercise, and even participate in minor everyday tasks. The endoscopic brow lift is a brow lift with a short recovery time.

So get the gentler brow lift – get an endoscopic brow lift. Discuss endoscopic brow lift recovery with Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon with numerous satisfied patients. To set up a consultation with Dr. Kouli, contact our office today.

To fully enjoy the results of buttocks implant surgery, you’ll first need to heal up from the surgery. It’s not too difficult, and as long as you’re following your surgeon’s gluteal augmentation recovery instructions, you’re sure to be happy with your new butt.
For two weeks, avoid lying on your back in order to make gluteal augmentation recovery as quick and easy as possible. Shifting to another position while lying down (and while sleeping) will help your tissues heal.
When you’re completely healed from the buttocks implantation procedure, you’ll have a rounder, more desirable butt.

As with other plastic surgeries, the buttocks enhancement healing process can affect the results of the procedure if the patient doesn’t follow the instructions diligently. If you listen to your plastic surgeon, your rear end will be looking more impressive in no time.
During your buttocks enhancement healing process, it will be important to not place pressure on your buttock implants. A large amount of pressure could cause your implants to be shifted to a new location, which is called migration. Migration could result in complications and should thus be avoided.
Plastic surgeons insert each implant into the area above the part of the cheek that people sit on, which aids in avoiding migration. Learn more about the buttocks enhancement healing process with a trip to the office of board-certified surgeon Dr. Wael Kouli. Dr. Kouli will give you the information you’ll need to have a comfortable and safe recovery. Contact us today for an appointment.
Want a butt that’ll turn heads? A beautiful backside that’ll have people talking? Maximize that rear end with gluteal enhancement!
Gluteal enhancement begins with anesthesia. Once anesthesia has been administered, your plastic surgeon makes an incision through which they can place the implants. This can be a horizontal incision in the area where the cheek meets the thigh. It can also be between the cheeks at the top of the buttocks. These both have various pros and cons, such as scar visibility and the likelihood of infection.
It’s best to learn as much as you can about your gluteal enhancement options, and there’s no better time and place than during a consultation with board-certified surgeon Dr. Wael Kouli. Dr. Kouli has the experience needed to offer the best recommendation for you and your desired enhancements. Contact us today to create an appointment with Dr. Kouli.

Having no luck removing excess upper arm skin and fat? Consider an arm lift, a procedure involving the trimming of fatty tissue and loose skin from the upper arms.
At the start of arm lift surgery, an incision must be created in each arm. The incision usually extends from the patient’s elbow to their armpit, either on the back or underside of the arm. The length will be related to the intended degree of tissue removal.
For more on arm lift operations and the various considerations that come with them, contact us and arrange an appointment. Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon, emphasizes patient education and will ensure that you fully understand the procedure before any additional steps are taken.
Whenever a person with nasal valve collapse inhales through their nose, parts of the nose cave inward, obstructing breathing. If you or a family member suffers from this unfortunate aesthetic and functional condition, consider corrective rhinoplasty surgery.
If you have an external nasal valve collapse – a cave-in of the external nasal valve(s) – this will appear as the flares of the nostrils getting sucked inwards. With an internal valve collapse, this can be seen as the middle third of the nose looking oddly shaped or too narrow.
Rhinoplasty from board-certified surgeon Dr. Wael Kouli is an excellent solution for nasal valve collapse. To create an appointment with Dr. Kouli and discuss the issue, contact our office today and set up a consultation.
Radiesse is a long-lasting injectable, providing positive effects for the body longer than most other injectables on the market. The results of a Radiesse treatment usually last for at least a year, and depending on factors such as metabolism, a treatment has even been known to stay for up to three years. It may be necessary to get minor touchups during this period.
As Radiesse is a temporary dermal filler, the calcium hydroxylapatite spheres it contains will at some point disintegrate into their component calcium and phosphate elements. Your system will harmlessly absorb these. The water-based gel that the spheres come in will also dissipate harmlessly.
The Brazilian butt lift – a form of gluteal enhancement – is not only great for your butt, it’s also a fantastic way to lose embarrassing body flab! You can get fat taken from areas like your hips, back, and arms, after which point it will be processed and then injected into the buttocks.
After the fat transfer part of a Brazilian butt lift, not all of the fat will survive. Typically, 60% to 85% of the donor fat will stay viable, and the rest will be safely absorbed. The closer the injected fatty tissue is to the muscles in the area, the greater the chance it will be kept alive by the blood supply.
Different surgeons have different techniques for suctioning fat and processing it, and not all of them have the same rate of cell preservation. Choosing the right surgeon for the job is integral, and doing comparison research online will only get you so far. Set up a consultation and talk to one in person! Speak with Dr. Wael Kouli, a board-certified surgeon with years of experience, about Brazilian butt lifts. Call or email today!
Do you want your nose to look more like everybody else’s? Rhinoplasty can fix a pinched nasal tip. The main goal during pinched nasal tip rhinoplasty is to strengthen the weakened sides of the nostrils.
When a nose is pinched, it’s typically because the sides of the nostrils are collapsing inwards – they don’t have the support they need. Using grafts from the body, the plastic surgeon will support the nostrils. This gives them a normal convex look, correcting the collapsed, inwardly projecting appearance.
Supported nostrils make a pinched nasal tip look fuller. If this sounds right for you, don’t wait – contact our office today for an appointment! You’ll speak with board-certified surgeon Dr. Wael Kouli, an experienced medical professional who has been performing successful rhinoplasties for many years. Dr. Kouli will design a surgical plan to fix your nasal tip.
Looking for an effective method of removing deep wrinkles and erasing scars? Try a deep chemical peel, a stronger peel procedure that will rejuvenate aging skin.

Decades of smooth skin are just within your grasp, so what are you waiting for? Contact our office today to set up an appointment! Experienced, board-certified surgeon Dr. Wael Kouli will answer your questions and plan out your procedure with you.
Too much fatty tissue, glandular tissue, and skin tissue can cause a woman’s breasts to become a heavy burden. Making the breasts lighter with breast reduction surgery is a solution that many women have found effective and even life-changing.
