Many people, men and women alike, have areas of their body with stubborn pockets of fat. Genetics can play a huge part in this as we are all pre-destined to gain weight in specific areas of our bodies and these bits can be extremely difficult to tone no matter the time and effort you put into exercise and diet. That said, exercise and diet are still beneficial and should be an important part of your healthy lifestyle regardless. If you are in need of a little extra help in an area of your body, you may consider using Fall River Liposuction by Dr. Lowney to help.
The Liposuction procedure should not be used solely as a means for losing weight, and is ideal for people with specific areas of their body they want improved. The areas differ from person to person but might include the abdomen, face or neck, arms, thighs, or backside. Liposuction will remove the excess fat cells and leave you with a more contoured and slender body.

Breast Augmentation is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States today. Traditionally augmentation has been achieved through Breast Implants filled with either Saline or Silicone. Today there is a new, more natural method on the market to create the enhancement you want without implanting any foreign objects into your body. Most people have at one point or another wished they could just shift unwanted fat in one area of their body to another area of their body where they wish they had a little more. Today this can actually be done through a Fat Transfer procedure.
In a Fat Transfer Natural Breast Enhancement, fat is taken from another area of the patient’s body and transferred to the breasts to create an enhancement that both looks and feel natural to the touch.

Talks on beauty and skin health have always been considered a woman’s domain. However, a closer look at current beauty trends has revealed that men are also as eager as women in seeking the services of salon, spas and cosmetic surgeons – from pedicures to facials to Botox. Dr. Mark X. Lowney of the Advanced Body Sculpting of New England caters to male clients who would want to erase years off of their appearance with a Fall River Botox treatment. Should men really turn to such procedure in their quest for youthful appearance? Find out below.
Numbers Don’t Lie
The 2012 multi-specialty procedural survey and statistics by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery revealed that Botox tops the list amongst the most sought-after non-surgical treatments for 2011. Although males only made up 9 percent of the cosmetic procedures done for the aforementioned year, it should be noted that there has been a huge leap of around 121 percent since 1997.
Aging in Men
An increased awareness of aging’s effects on one’s appearance tops the list behind the sudden surge of aesthetic treatments and cosmetic services amongst gentlemen for the past few years. Major signs of aging in men include the appearance of glabellar lines between their eyebrows and the development of creases and folds as a result of frequent frowning, laughing and smiling. Also, men tend to have increased alcohol consumption and more frequent exposure to the outdoors than women. Both factors can be a significant contributor to the early appearance of wrinkles.
Looking fresh and younger to stay successful in their current line of business is also pinpointed as one of the main reasons why men have resorted to Botox. Older gentlemen have felt the need to maintain or improve their physical appearance due to their younger counterparts wanting to replace them in their jobs. Males with highly pronounced lines mid-brow have been perceived as perpetually angry or stressed; nobody wants to be considered as such particularly amongst customer-oriented businesses and jobs. Botox is now seen as a career investment amongst men and a cosmetic procedure to boost their self-esteem.
Dr. Lowney warmly welcomes gentlemen seeking Botox treatments. Contact him today for more information!
By and large, women often associate the idea of birth control with weight gain, hormonal-induced changes in your body, pain and extra costs. Whether temporary or permanent, making the decision to go through a certain procedure wherein childbearing will be halted is quite difficult. At the Advanced Body Sculpting of New England, Dr. Mark X. Lowney offers permanent sterilization with Essure, a painless Fall River birth control procedure which naturally prevents pregnancy.
So what exactly happens during an Essure birth control procedure? We answer your questions below.
How does it work?
The flexible and soft Essure insert will be placed into each of your fallopian tubes by an Essure-certified doctor like Dr. Lowney. Incisions are not necessary and Dr. Lowney will be able to determine accurate placement as the tip of the inserts will remain visible. For the next 3 months or so, your body will work with the inserts’ components to form a natural barrier that will stop the sperm from reaching your eggs.
It is important for you take another form of birth control during the first quarter after the procedure. A confirmation test to ensure that the inserts have naturally form a block within your fallopian tubes will be made 3 months later, too.
The Essure confirmation test involves introducing a dye into your uterus and viewing it later through an x-ray to ensure that the tubes have already been blocked.
How safe are the inserts? What are they made of?
The Ensure inserts are actually made of stainless steel alloy, nickel-titanium and polyester fiber. These combination of materials are the same ones used in heart valve replacement devices, abdominal stents and blood vessel grafts.
What are its benefits?
The benefits of an Ensure permanent birth control method include:
1. No incision or surgery is required. The procedure itself will only take you less than 5 minutes or so. You can already resume to your normal day-to-day activities within hours.
2. You do not have to worry about unwanted bodily changes due to hormonal shifts such as mood swings and weight gain. Essure is a natural method of birth control.
3. Any anesthetic agent isn’t involved. Being anesthesia-free translates to fast recovery on your end.
Dr. Lowney serves residents of Providence and Fall River, Massachusetts as well as nearby cities and towns. Contact him today if you’re looking into Essure as your permanent birth control option.
