ExpresS-Lift Face Lift at The Langdon Center In Guilford

By |August 16th, 2018|Facelift|0 Comments

A facelift is one of the most effective cosmetic surgeries to improve the appearance of aging. This procedure reverses the sagging of the lower face and neck caused by gravity. One reason that a facelift is so effective is that it improves sagging over a large and visible area from the lower neck to the upper cheeks. Dr. Langdon’s ExpresS-Lift Face Lift has several advantages over traditional facelifts, including less bruising and swelling, a quicker recovery time, and longer-lasting, natural-looking results. Modern facelift techniques all include a physical lifting [...]

How Much Does Natural Breast Augmentation Cost?

By |July 31st, 2018|Natural breast augmentation|0 Comments

Natural Breast Augmentation provides safe and lifelong volume enhancement of the breasts using only fat from the same patient’s body. Liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from problem areas; the harvested fat is then “recycled” and used as a fat graft to augment the breasts. Many patients wonder how much Natural Breast Augmentation costs and how it compares to breast implants. The cost of Natural Breast Augmentation can vary based on the amount of liposuction and the areas of the body that are treated. The fee [...]

Can Tumescent Liposuction Be Done with Twilight Anesthesia?

By |July 31st, 2018|Liposuction|0 Comments

Tumescent liposuction is the safest and most effective method of liposuction. In this procedure  large volumes of diluted local anesthetic are used to “inflate” the fat layer. The fat is then aspirated (with gentle suction) through a very small cannula (micro-cannula) inserted through tiny incisions in the skin. The local anesthetic is so effective that it gets rid of the major hazard of traditional liposuction: general anesthesia. View Gallery Many patients opt for twilight anesthesia during a tumescent liposuction procedure. Twilight anesthesia allows patients to be [...]

What Signs of Facial Aging can be Improved with Dermal Fillers?

By |July 11th, 2018|Dermal Fillers|0 Comments

Dermal fillers are a great way to enhance youthfulness and minimize wrinkles, lines, and hollowness in the face. Fillers and injectables can improve the look of aging skin because they plump up volume-deficient areas to give fullness, fill in lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen. View Gallery Dermal fillers help fill in lost volume. They can improve the look of wrinkles and indented scars as well as nasolabial and marionette folds (the deeper furrows around the nose and mouth). Fillers can also restore lost volume in [...]

Memorial Day has come and gone and now everyone is ready for summer. If you have been considering breast augmentation, you’re probably wondering if you will recover in time for tank tops, bathing suits, and summer activities. VIEW OUR GALLERY If you choose to undergo natural breast augmentation, recovery after this less-invasive, minimal incision procedure is much quicker than that following silicone or saline implants. Because the natural approach uses the body’s own fat, there is very low risk of infection or other side effects. Patients return [...]

Can I Remove a Colorful Tattoo

By |May 18th, 2018|Tattoo Removal|0 Comments

Picosecond laser treatments will provide the quickest tattoo removal. The blue color may respond best to the PiQo4 laser (1064 nm). If there is any green (or blue-green) the PicoSure laser (755 nm) would likely work better. You can't always tell in advance because there are many tattoo inks in use (up to 300), all with different chemical composition. Sometimes inks are mixed together and the tattoo color changes as one ink fades faster than the other. We have both of these lasers and use them to optimize treatment of multicolor [...]

Am I A Candidate For Hair Restoration With PRP?

By |May 3rd, 2018|Hair Restoration, PRP Therapy|0 Comments

Approximately 50 million American men and 30 million American women experience hair loss or baldness, which is most common in individuals over the age of 50. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair restoration is a relatively new treatment to stimulate hair growth and reverse hair loss. During a PRP procedure, a patient’s blood is drawn into a special collection tube; the tube is then put into a machine called a centrifuge, which separates the blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich in platelets (a type of blood cell [...]

How Long is Recovery After SmartLipo?

By |March 30th, 2018|SmartLipo|0 Comments

SmartLipo™, an FDA-approved advanced laser-assisted liposuction procedure, employs laser energy to liquefy fat, enabling easier removal from the body. SmartLipo™ is less invasive than similar procedures and the use of local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia greatly reduces any potential risks and reduces recovery time. Recovery time varies with the size of the body area that is treated. Most patients return to light activities within 2–3 days following their treatment and exercise and vigorous activities within 10 days. Patients will wear a compression garment for at least one [...]

Will Botox In My Forehead Lower My Brows?

By |March 26th, 2018|BOTOX|0 Comments

Be sure to keep up with Dr. Langdon’s Real Self Page for the answers to all of your frequently asked questions! Botox injected into the forehead is not a good treatment for a heavy brow. The muscle that lifts the brows is the frontalis muscle. The activity of this muscle causes horizontal wrinkles in the forehead; these can be improved by weakening the muscle activity but if the frontalis is weakened too much or totally paralyzed, the brows will sink even lower. The ideal treatment for sagging eyebrows is a [...]
