Plump Up Your Pout With Our Newest Filler, Restylane® Silk for Lips

We're excited to offer FDA-approved, Restylane Silk for lips.

Lips communicate sensuality and youth, so it’s easy to understand the popularity of treatments that result in plump, contoured lips.

Naples plastic surgeon describes recovery after cosmetic surgery procedures

Survey Says: The ‘Ideal’ Breast Defies Expectations

When I first read about a recent study whose authors surveyed more than 1,000 men and women to determine the ideal breast shape, I thought about my years of consulting with breast augmentation patients in Naples and how perceptions change over time.
