PUBLISHED IN: News / Press, Robles Plastic Surgery  •  COMMENTS: 0
Share & Enjoy:

We are closely approaching the end of January and by this time a lot of people have forgotten or given up on at least one of their New Year’s resolutions.  When I ask my Latina patients to share with me their top three resolutions for this year they often mention: Lose weight, advance their professional careers and spend more time with family. I am not surprised that losing weight and advance one’s professional career are often times mentioned together. The...

All I Want for Christmas is Plastic Surgery
PUBLISHED IN: News / Press, The Best of Dr. Robles  •  COMMENTS: 2

December is a month filled with great traditions. It’s a time to celebrate and for many a time to look their best.  For my Latina patients the holidays represent an opportunity to meet with family and friends, to celebrate their cultural beliefs and backgrounds through the reenactment of the Nativity or what we like to call “Posadas”. For other Latina patients, this season also represents greater pressure to look younger, sexier and fitter since looking one’s best is definitely an...

“You can be a thousand different women. It’s your choice which one you want to be. It’s about freedom and sovereignty. You celebrate who you are. You say, ‘This is my kingdom.’” Salma Hayek I really enjoy when my office gets to be part of a women’s conference, it is such an inspiration and absolute joy to meet women who are not afraid of taking their chances, who are willing to step up and drive the pace of change. Salma...

The number of American teenagers undergoing plastic surgery to change their facial features or bodies is on a steep rise. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 219,000 cosmetic surgeries were performed on young people age 13 to 19 in 2010. Due to its increasing demand, we think it is appropriate to devote some time to analyze and discuss the forces driving this new trend of teenagers and plastics surgery. Breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure...

Share & Enjoy:

 I am proud to say that Robles Plastic Surgery in Phoenix was the first plastic surgery clinic in Arizona to offer our patients the Gummy Bear implants. We started using them in August 2012, shortly after their approval by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration. The so-called Gummy Bear breast augmentation implants are the new generation of high-strength, cohesive silicone gel implants. Sientra is the brand of implants we prefer to use. Many potential patients, especially Latinas, asked if we offered...

Share & Enjoy:

While many fashion magazines today feature the ultra-thin, “starving model” look in their ads and photos, my Latina patients at Robles Plastic Surgery tell me they’d rather look like actresses with fuller bodies such as Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. I am also seeing women from other cultures come in with a picture of one of these entertainers and asking me if I can help them achieve that look. Allure fashion and beauty magazine took a...

The ‘Talk’ About Breast Implants and Cancer Detection Can Save Lives
PUBLISHED IN: Robles Plastic Surgery  •  COMMENTS: 1
Share & Enjoy:

The most important talk that any plastic surgeon will ever have with a female patient about breast augmentation is communicating the connection between breast implants and cancer detection survival.  The point I emphasize is that breast implants can obscure mammography detection of breast cancer to a certain point. The “talk” took on added importance at Robles Plastic Surgery after a recent study published online concluded cosmetic breast augmentation can affect the diagnosis and survival of women with breast cancer. The...

Share & Enjoy:

The term “Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation” depends on certain techniques and protocols to provide patients with the best possible outcomes for getting back to a normal lifestyle. During the Arizona summers, my patients comment that they can hardly wait to show off their body enhancement in bikinis by the pool or boating on our desert lakes. At Robles Plastic Surgery, when all the conditions are right, most patients can return to their normal daily activities and work within two days....
