Teens are often plagued by peers making fun of their appearance. This can be very devastating to a young adult and negatively affect their self esteem for life. Some common teen problems are protruding ears, large breasts, breasts that haven’t developed at all or large noses. Can these young adults be helped by plastic surgery and is it appropriate? The answer is Yes. They should come in for a consultation and see if they are a candidate for the surgical solution to their specific problem. For protruding ears, the surgery performed is called otoplasty, which is the pinning back of the ears. For large breasts, the surgery is called Breast Reduction, which reduces the size and sometimes the shape of the breasts, and is often covered by insurance. Breast Enhancement is the surgical correction for breasts that have not developed. For the correction of too large a nose, the surgery is called Rhinoplasty. This surgery can be performed after the nose is completely developed. Pittsburgh Plastic Surgeon - Dr. Anna Wooten does all of these surgeries. Don’t be intimidated by name calling peers-----call for your consultation appointment today.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, but also one of the most treatable. People think that they needn’t pay attention to this, because they don’t frequent the beach or lay in the sun to get a tan. But, beware!!! Skin cancer does not only affect beachgoers, but golfers, baseball players or spectators, runners, gardeners or basically anyone who spends time engaging in outside activities. In fact, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. So, now that you have the correct information on skin cancers, these are the things you must watch for on your own skin, or that of a loved one: Any type of asymmetry, border irregularity, color variation and the diameter of the skin lesion. Don’t forget to check areas of the body that are more hidden, such as the hair on your scalp, between the buttocks and the labia area as well. If you see anything that looks suspicious, or that you have questions about, please call for an appointment today. Pittsburgh Plastic Surgeon - Dr. Anna Wooten does body checks and this is typically an insurance covered visit..
Show me the stress and I'll show you a solution!!!
Recently making a hit with the media everywhere, famed flight attendant Steven Slater from JetBlue Airlines had a stress melt down. He supposedly had a confrontation with a passenger, spewed a few profanities, helped himself to the beer beverage cart, and sailed down the escape hatch and into the hearts of stressed 9 to 5 workers everywhere. He became an instant folk hero, telling his employers, “I’m not going to take this anymore!!”
A lot of stressed, overworked employees felt his pain, probably wearing similar pain on their faces.
Pittsburgh Plastic Surgeon - Dr. Wooten suggests Dysport or Botox in Pittsburgh PA, and Fillers, like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse or Perlane. We may still feeeeeel the stress, but these products can help to diminish the actual appearance of the stress on our faces.
These are non-surgical procedures with little or no downtime, and a good option to more invasive procedures. She also suggests that often when the lines disappear, the stress causing them may disappear as well. When we look better, this often makes us feel better thus alleviating the stress.

The answer is YES. Traumatic events in one’s life can often lead to weight loss or gain. Often when people experience a severe life changing event , such as death of a loved one, loss of job, divorce, involvement in an accident, illness, or even turmoil in the workplace, it can wreak havoc in their lives. It is at times like these that weight can fluctuate.
Pittsburgh Plastic Surgeon - Dr. Anna Wooten suggests that liposuction, or tummy tuck surgery can help to rid certain areas of the body of unwanted fat or excess skin.

Often when a physical problem can be corrected or improved, our mental attitude follows. Call our office today to schedule your consultation appointment.
