Avoid Facelift Scarring

Facelift Scarring: Choose Your Surgeon Carefully A full facelift surgery by Dr. Cherup rejuvenates the midface, neck, and jaw line. To avoid facelift scarring, the incisions run under the side burn, along the front border of the ear, down around the earlobe, the back of the ear, and continue along the lower hairline, then diving […]

Liposuction and Coolsculpting For Reducing Fat

We talk to many patients considering liposuction  and CoolSculpting in the stomach/abdomen because it is very hard for them to lose weight in this area for various reasons, like pregnancy. One thing to keep in mind is that a patient needs to be in good physical condition in order for liposuction to be successful. Liposuction is […]

Teenage Rhinoplasties

Teenagers tolerate rhinoplasties very well. Most teens are troubled by a nose that is too long, has too high of a dorsal hump, or is too unrefined for a young face. Performing a rhinoplasty on a young adult requires forethought, on the part of the surgeon, into the future growth of the face, and how […]

Vectra Imaging for Rhinoplasty in Pittsburgh

The best candidates for rhinoplasty have realistic expectations about what surgery can accomplish. When prospective patients visit our practice for a nasal surgery consultation with Dr. Cherup, they are carefully assessed to ensure that they are physically, emotionally, and financially prepared to undergo this major cosmetic procedure. The number one question I am asked during a consult […]

Swelling after Tummy Tuck Surgery?

I perform a lot of Pittsburgh tummy tucks and everyone complains about lower abdominal swelling and the discomfort that it causes after tummy tuck/abdominoplasty surgery. The bad news is that lower abdominal swelling after tummy tuck surgery occurs in every patient. The degree to which it is observable or becomes a problem varies greatly based […]

Aesthetic Surgery Costs

Most patients looked surprised when they see the price tag for aesthetic surgery.They want to know why aesthetic surgery costs a lot. In fact, it doesn’t. The truth is – aesthetic, or cosmetic surgery costs the same as reconstructive surgery – the patient just doesn’t know the costs because reconstructive surgery is often covered by […]

Labiaplasty Surgery by Dr. Cherup: Part II

What is Labiaplasty surgery? In general, labiaplasty surgery involves the female perineum, which includes the vulva (labia majora and minora, and clitoris), perineal body (muscle between the vagina and anus), the vagina, and the anus. This anatomy  should look “normal” to a woman. Enlargement or stretching of any of these tissues can lead to sexual […]

Labiaplasty by Dr. Cherup: Part I

Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure for altering the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia), which are the folds of skin surrounding the human female vulva.  I perform labiaplasty surgery on a regular basis at our Radiance Surgical Center, located in Pittsburgh, PA. Patients present to a plastic surgeon who offers labiaplasty surgery because they often feel that  their gynecologist […]

Cancelled Plastic Surgery

Cancelled plastic surgery is something that we all try to avoid. When we have to cancel plastic surgery for patients, or when they cancel, it is always a disappointment for both sides. I really gear up for the surgeries that I have each day. I prepare and consciously and unconsciously think about them, just like an […]

General Anesthesia Respiratory Complications

Recently I had a patient develop general anesthesia respiratory complications after an aesthetic procedure. As part of our intake procedure, we asked her questions regarding her history including recent illnesses and history of smoking. Unfortunately, I did not understand her true  respiratory risk. The patient stated that she was getting over a sinus infection, which was hardly worse […]
