Scar-less mole removal; is it possible??


As a Dermatologist I see several patients a week who want to have their moles removed. Mole removal for a purely cosmetic reason is quite tricky and I spend a considerate amount of time educating my patients on this topic.

Pigmented moles or moles that have increased in size or changed color or bled need to be removed and examined under a microscope. We diagnose many basal cell cancers, squamous cell cancers and the occasional nodular melanoma this way.

However; most of my patients wish to remove their moles for purely aesthetic reasons. If the mole is skin colored it can be shaved off flush with the skin. No sutures are required and the scar is practically erased using a Co2 fractional laser.

Darker cosmetic and benign moles need to be cut and sutured to fully eliminate their roots. On the face this can leave an unsightly and largely unacceptable cosmetic result. I generally discourage my patients from having flat dark moles cut from their faces. The scars are usually worse than the mole.

I hope this was helpful to you.

Cosmetic Consultation is free and we would be happy to schedule an appointment for you

Dr. A. David Rahimi, lead surgeon at Forever Young in Los Angeles, has seen a dramatic increase in male patients in less than twenty years. “When I finished my training in 1999, maybe 5 percent of my patients were men,” he says. “Now, one-third of my patients are men.” Advances in surgical and nonsurgical techniques have made cosmetic enhancements more readily acceptable. “Twenty years ago, all we had available was cutting surgery,” he notes. “We now have many, many options to tighten up the skin, remove brown spots and fine lines, and make someone look healthier and younger.”

Dr. Rahimi, on the other hand, has a more conservative outlook. “More and more men will speak about receiving cosmetic surgery, but it’s still taboo because, unfortunately, some practitioners go overboard. They do a little and it looks good, so the patient asks for more. The [surgeon] agrees and they make the client look done or fake,” says Dr. Rahimi. “And I don’t think men are going to talk at parties with each other about getting Botox or fillers,” he adds. “It’ll always be something that they do but not readily admit to—but it’s becoming more acceptable in our society.”

Tuliplift™ - A surgical Facelift performed under local anethesia


Don't you wish there was a surgical facelift that could be performed entirely under local anesthesia??

In fact there is such a procedure and it was developed by Dr. David Rahimi about 17 years ago. It is called the Tuliplift™

http://www.foreveryoung.net/tulip-face-lift.html (click on our before and after videos)

www tuliplift.com

Since 1999 Dr. Rahimi has performed dozens of these Tuliplift™ procedures completely under local anesthesia and with quite impressive results. (Occasionally Dr. Rahimi also uses a little injectable pain medication, such as Demerol, or muscle relaxer to make the procedure more comfortable.)

Tuliplift™ addresses both the sagging of the tissue, volume loss, and sun damaged and discolored skin.

Here is how Dr. Rahimi himself explains the procedure: I start by removing about an inch of skin from the front of each ear. If you just remove the skin the results are temporarily and the skin stretches back within about 2 to 3 years. In order to ensure a long-lasting results the muscle and deeper tissues are also tightened with permanent sutures Fatty deposit from the neck and Jowl area is removed using laser liposuction. This is followed by tightening the neck muscles surgically. The harvested autologous fat is spun down and injected back into the nasolabial fold and cheek area. (As we age the bones of the cheek and chin resorb and the face falls. Fat is used to lift the cheekbones to their natural state) No drains are needed and a light dressing is removed the next day. Sutures are usually removed 7 to 10 days after the procedure and at that point in time Dr. David Rahimi performs a fractional Mixto CO2 laser to reduce the appearance of the surgical scars and also to remove brown spots on fine lines.

I am often asked why I don't use General Anesthesia to perform my Facelifts. The answer is quite simple: general anesthesia has far greater risks than local anesthesia and my patients understand and prefer this way of doing surgery.

Watch our videos on Youtube: ABC News spot from almost 15 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJ2V2jFCKOQ

Another video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCT5CDPsCjU

Here is what is included in the Tuliplift:

-Consultation by Dr. David Rahimi -Removal of the fatty deposits under the chin using Laser Liposuction

-Tightening of the neck muscles (Platysmoplasty)

-Liposuction of the Jowls

-Fat transfer into the nasolabial folds -Tightening of the muscle and underlying structures (not just skin)

-Removal of the excess skin from the side of the face and neck

-3 layers of sutures: permanent sutures are left in for long lasting results

-Sutures are removed 7-10 days after the procedure

-A fractional CO2 laser is performed to reduce the Facelift scars and also to freshen up the skin Cost ranges from $15000-$25000 depending on optional treatments such as PRP (Plasma Rich protein) and oxygen therapy.

Above fees are all inclusive and include OR Fee, Surgical Fee, Doctors Fee, Blood work, and all follow ups. Please call us for a complimentary evaluation. Zonya Villatoro – office manager

Another Death due to unlicensed facialist doing facial surgery in a mall!

Vampire lift by a facialist leads to patient death. 

A woman who died this week after going into cardiac arrest at a beauty salon had undergone a cosmetic medical procedure that involved a part of her body being "augmented by injection," Long Beach police said.

Long Beach police said that on Wednesday at about 12:20 p.m. they were called to Areli's Beauty Salon in the 2100 block of Pacific Avenue because someone was in cardiac arrest "under suspicious circumstances."

Authorities allege that 45-year-old Sandra Perez Gonzalez was renting space in the salon under the pretense of giving massages, but instead provided butt and lip augmentation and "vampire face lifts" -- a procedure in which a person's own blood cells are injected into their face -- without a license.

Authorities were first told that the woman who died, 36-year-old Hamilet Suarez of Long Beach, had come in for a massage but had medical issues before her session began. Detectives said they later uncovered that Gonzalez had been renting a room not just for massages, but for other purposes as well.

"We can confirm that the female who did pass ... did receive a cosmetic medical procedure ... in getting a certain part of her body augmented by injection," police Sgt. Megan Zabel told KTLA-TV.

It was not immediately clear which procedure Suarez received.

Gonzalez was arrested at 12:30 p.m. Thursday -- a day after Suarez died -- in the 2100 block of Pine Avenue for possession of controlled substances.

Gonzalez is only a licensed massage therapist and is not legally allowed to perform any of the cosmetic procedures she is accused of or administer any of the controlled substances that were found in her room, police said.

Cosmetic Surgery for men- 2014

My Dermatology Residency in New York (Mount Sinai University) and the ensuing Cosmetic Surgery fellowship in California was quite broad . I graduated in 1999 and became versed in a variety of procedures including face and neck lifts, liposuction, fat transfer and laser surgery. At that time men accounted for only 1-2% of my patients and my experience with cosmetic surgery in men was very limited. Much has changed in the past 15 years.

Men now constitute about 25% of my aesthetic clients. The last Great Recession and a variety of other social and socio-economic factors have resulted in Americans working into their 70s and even 80s. My male patients fall into 2 main categories: Young men in their 30s and 40s with Acne scarring and older distinguished professionals into their 60s, 70s, and even 80s. The treatment of Acne scarring has significantly progressed. The advent of fractional CO2 lasers, PRP and stem cell fat transfers, Subcisions and more has allowed these patients to significantly and safely reduce their scarring. http://www.foreveryoung.net/acne-scarring.html

My older patients are contemplating cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons. One that stands out again and again is to excel in their profession career. Unfortunately discrimination against older individuals is rampant in many industries. Older men are not regarded as cutting edge or up to date with the newest technologies. Many of my clients work with or even lead a team of much younger men and women. They feel that their age and “Aging” is starting to be a handicap and want to do something about it. For these particular reasons I have developed the concept and technique of “Quadrafecta”. http://www.quadrafecta.com/

As a Dermatologist and Cosmetic Surgeon I have various tools to tighten and lift the skin, fill in depressed scars and hollowness under the eyes, jawline and more, resurface sun damaged skin, remove excess fat in the jowl and neck area, and replace the lost Collagen. With over 20 laser and light sources at my disposal I can chose and pick to see what combination is best for my patients. I can then perform them all in one visit and under local anesthesia. This is a partial list of options available to me:

Ultherapy (Ulthera)- Ultrasound deep Face, eye and neck lift

Pelleve- superficial Radiofrequency face and neck lift

Mixto Laser _ Co2 fractional laser for fine and deep lines

Fat Transfer- with Plasma Rich Protein and Stem cells

Fillers- Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane

Chemical Peels- TCA and Jessner Peels

Smartlipo Triplex- fat removal and skin tightening with Smartlipo Laser

IPL Photofacial- Light source to remove brown spots and Blood Vessels

Diolite Laser- Laser to remove larger blood vessels

COOltouch Laser- Non ablative laser to tighten pores

Clear and Brilliant Laser- to remove fine line and brown spots

Thermage CPT- Body lifting with Radiofrequency

Relume- Removal of light scars with focused UVB light

YAG 5 laser- Removal of discoloration and irregular pigmentation

Using the most up to date technology and the power of combining different modalities has allowed me to achieve long lasting results that appear natural. All these procedures can be performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation and require little downtime. Looking natural is of paramount importance to my male patients. Choosing non-surgical lifts and lasers can achieve these goals. Please contact me for a free and confidential consultation.

Acne Scarring: We offer 3 Lasers; 3 Wavelenghts.

In addition to Mixto fractional co2 laser wi have 2 other wavelengh lasers for the treatment of active acne and acne scarring.

Comparison of a 1450-nm diode laser and a 1320-nm Nd:YAG laser in the treatment of atrophic facial scars: a prospective clinical and histologic study.


Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, Washington, DC, USA.



Atrophic scar revision techniques, although numerous, have been hampered by inadequate clinical responses and prolonged postoperative recovery periods. Nonablative laser treatment has been shown to effect significant dermal collagen remodeling with minimal posttreatment sequelae. Although many studies have been published regarding the effectiveness of these nonablative lasers on rhytides, there are limited data demonstrating their specific effects on atrophic scars.


To evaluate and compare the efficacy and safety of long-pulsed 1320-nm Nd:YAG and 1450-nm diode lasers in the treatment of atrophic facial scarring.


A series of 20 patients (skin phototypes I-V) with mild to moderate atrophic facial acne scars randomly received three successive monthly treatments with a long-pulsed 1320-nm Nd:YAG laser on one facial half and a long-pulsed 1450-nm diode laser on the contralateral facial half. Patients were evaluated using digital photography and three-dimensional in vivo microtopography measurements at each treatment visit and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. Histologic evaluations of cutaneous biopsies obtained before treatment, immediately after the first treatment, and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the third treatment were performed. Clinical assessment scores were determined at each treatment session and follow-up visit. Patient satisfaction surveys were obtained at the end of the study.


Mild to moderate clinical improvement was observed after the series of three treatments in the majority of patients studied. Patient satisfaction scores and in vivo microtopography measurements paralleled the photographic and histopathologic changes seen. Side effects of treatment were limited to mild transient erythema, edema, and hyperpigmentation. No scarring or adverse textural changes resulted from the use of either laser system.


Nonablative long-pulsed 1320-nm Nd:YAG and 1450-nm diode lasers each offer clinical improvement for patients with atrophic scarring without significant side effects or complications. The 1450-nm diode laser showed greater clinical scar response at the parameters studied. The use of nonablative laser systems is a good treatment alternative for patients with atrophic scarring who are unable or unwilling to endure the prolonged postoperative recovery process associated with ablative laser skin resurfacing procedures.

Why Smartlipo Triplex™?

Tighter Skin

Smartlipo Triplex™ allows more complete melting of the fat using advanced MultiPlex (MPX) laser techniques, in which two wavelengths of laser energy are used for not only superior sculpting of the fat, but also, the biggest advancement in liposuction surgery-skin tightening. The MPX Smartlipo Triplex™ is unique in that it gives Dr. Petti the opportunity to focus on skin tightening following fat reduction, and this produces smoother, more natural and superior aesthetic results.

Minimal Recovery Time

Smartlipo Triplex™ can be done under local anesthesia, and therefore patients are ambulatory following the procedure, with no downtime. In fact, it would be more accurate to describe Smartlipo Triplex™ under local anesthesia, as being associated with "up" time! This has been very rewarding for the patients, Dr. Petti and her staff.

Minimally Invasive

The Smartlipo Triplex™ is a minimally-invasive laser surgical technique, performed by using a smaller-than-a-fine-point-pen fiber optic laser. Therefore, the entry points in the skin are very small and leave an inconspicuous scar. The laser wavelengths close down the blood vessels, so the result is associated with not only minimal surgical trauma, but also minimal bruising, swelling and resultant quick recovery. There is minimal discomfort, and Dr. Petti's patients often tell her that they did not need to take any pain medications the evening of surgery. The Smartlipo Triplex™ patients that have local anesthesia can drive the next day if they are off of pain medications, and can return to their normal daily activities in one to two days after surgery, depending on each individual patient.

Dr. Petti and her patients live by her motto, "What a difference a day of Smartlipo Triplex™ can make!", since many of them are at or near their ideal body weight and have spent a lifetime dreaming of making the change that her Smartlipo Triplex™ procedure creates-in hours.

Targets Unwanted Pockets of Fat

Smartlipo Triplex™ can also be used to treat larger areas of fat accumulation, or multiple areas of fatty deposits. However, in these cases the patient may need to have general anesthesia. It is normal in these patients for the recovery to be longer. Some patients may prefer to have several areas treated at one surgical setting. These patients are done in her private, ambulatory plastic surgery center under the guidance and supervision of board-certified and experienced anesthesiologists.

Great Article in Huffington Post on Fat Transfer

Fat Injections More Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedure Than Liposuction


PA | Posted: 28/01/2013 07:56 GMT | Updated: 28/01/2013 09:37 GMT

Fat injections have become more popular than liposuction, new figures show.

The number of women who are transferring fat from one part of the body, such as the hips or thighs, to areas that have lost plumpness through age, including the face or hands, has increased by 13% in just one year.

Meanwhile, the number of women who had lipo has reduced by 14%, according to data from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps).

A total of 2,641 women underwent a "fat transfer" procedure last year, making it the seventh most popular cosmetic surgery conducted by Baaps members.

Meanwhile, liposuction has dropped to eighth place.

Even though anti-ageing procedures are becoming increasingly popular, boob jobs still top the charts for the most common cosmetic surgeries - almost 10,000 women had breast augmentation in 2012.


Of the 43,172 surgical procedures carried out by Baaps members last year, one in 10 were conducted on men.

The most popular procedures for men were nose jobs, eyelid surgery and breast reduction.

Rajiv Grover, consultant plastic surgeon and Baaps president, said: "The growth rates for surgical facelifting and other anti-ageing procedures showed a double-digit rise, despite a double-dip recession.

"Interestingly, for the first time we see a greater number of women having procedures to re-insert fat - known as fat transfer, to add volume to the face - than to remove it, in the form of liposuction."

Belly Fat- Great article in LA Times

Please read about Laser Liposuction and our non- invasive Zeltiq (coolsculpting ) procedures...


When belly fat is a worry

There are two types, and one is associated with health risks. Here's how to get rid of it.

The belly fat blues

The belly fat blues. (Jose J. Santos / Los Angeles Times / August 25, 2012)

Belly fat seems so simple. Eat too many deep-fried mozzarella sticks while thinking about maybe possibly going to the gym someday, and your belly will eventually start growing. Nothing complicated about that.

But there's a lot going on beneath our over-stretched shirts. Scientists say that belly fat is strangely complex and widely misunderstood. If you want to do something about the bulge, you should know that slimming down can be complicated too.

"How you lose fat may be just as important as how much fat you lose," says Dr. Samuel Klein, professor of medicine and nutritional science at Washington University School of Medicine.

Belly fat is worth taking seriously. Doctors have known for a long time that a big midsection is a strong — but imperfect—warning of potential health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. "If you see someone with a big belly, that's a person who is probably at higher risk," Klein says. "Someone who just has a big butt probably has less risk."

It's important to realize that belly fat isn't created equal. Much of the fat in the stomach area lies directly under the skin. This so-called subcutaneous fat can really weigh you down. But as far as scientists can tell, it doesn't seem especially hazardous to your health. Klein led a 2004 study showing that patients could instantly lose 30 pounds or more of subcutaneous fat through liposuction without seeing any of the health benefits normally associated with weight loss, such as lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and greater sensitivity to insulin.

When it comes to health, fat under the skin seems to be far less important than fat that wraps around the internal organs, also known as visceral fat. "Visceral fat is linked to diabetes and cardiovascular problems even more than BMI," or body mass index, says Dr. Steven Grinspoon, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of the program in nutritional metabolism at Massachusetts General Hospital. Nobody knows why visceral fat seems so risky. One possibility, according to Grinspoon, is that it may cause harmful inflammation.

But Klein believes that visceral fat may just be a side effect of an unhealthy lifestyle, not a direct threat. He adds that about one out of four obese people seems to have perfectly fine cholesterol, blood pressure and insulin sensitivity, as if all of that fat didn't really matter. You can't know for sure if a large-bellied person is on the road to health problems without a battery of tests, he says.

Most people who have a lot of obvious belly fat also have a lot of visceral fat, Klein says. And usually vice versa. He suggests a test that should be tried only on close acquaintances (or possibly yourself). "If someone has a big belly, just try to pinch it. If you can get a big chunk, they have a lot of subcutaneous fat. If you can't, it's probably mostly visceral fat."

Visceral fat lies beyond the reach of any suction tube. If you want to rid yourself of this possible risk factor for heart disease and diabetes, you'll have to take another approach. One proven formula, Klein says: cutting calories and getting more exercise. When people slim down through diet and exercise, visceral fat disappears twice as fast as subcutaneous fat, he says.

If you want to quickly trim your waistline without surgery, you might consider a noninvasive "body shaping" procedure. Plastic surgeons, for example, can use high-intensity ultrasound to destroy fat cells, tighten the collagen in the skin and remove a couple of inches from the waist — not enough for the outside world to notice, maybe, but enough to make a difference. "Patients often say that their pants fit better," says Dr. Mark Jewell, a plastic surgeon in Eugene, Ore., and a past president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Unfortunately, such noninvasive approaches are financially out of reach for many Americans. And if a person has too much belly fat, Jewell says, the ultrasound waves won't be able to reach deep enough to do much good. Almost all patients with a BMI over 30 need to slim down before getting the procedure. "I sometimes send them back to a personal trainer," Jewell says.

Ethnic Skin

Dermatological and Cosmetic Services for
Patients with Dark and Olive-Toned Skin

Some physicians shy away from treating Hispanics, Asians, and African Americans because their skin heals differently than those with white or European skin. African American skin is prone to developing thick and unsightly scars and Hispanic and Asian post-op patients can develop light or dark skin discolorations.

These risks often prompt less-experienced physicians to discourage patients with darker skin tones from seeking laser treatments, chemical peels or cosmetic surgery. This isn't the case at with Dr. Rahimi and the Forever Young clinic.

With over 10 years of conducting and perfecting his treatments in such ethnically diverse cities as Washington D.C., New York, and now LA, Dr. Rahimi has become an expert in treating dark and olive-skin complexions. The following procedures have been tailored by Dr. Rahimi to specifically treat darker and olive skin tones. All of these treatments are minimally invasive, requiring only local anesthesia and minimal sedation. What's more, when the treatments are done in combination with each other, the results are far greater than when one treatment is done alone.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels improve irregular color and fade deep lines. A superficial chemical peel removes the top skin cell layers, eliminating dead skin, tightening pores, and producing new collagen and elastic fibers. Recovery takes about seven to 10 days. Results may not be completely evident for up to a year but will last for many years.

Manual Epidermal Dermabrasion

Manual Epidermal Dermabrasion (MED) works to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, traces of acne and pigmentation. A scalpel is used to exfoliate superficial epidermal layer of skin before using a compressor to extract milias, tiny subcutaneous cysts, keratosis, and superficial rough spots. Carbon dioxide mixed with acetone is then applied, creating a "local freezing" that penetrates through the skin and is long-lasting. The procedure immediately refines and tightens the skin and promotes new collagen synthesis that lasts for weeks.

Commercial Fillers and Fat Transfers

Commercial fillers and fat transfers can be used to smooth out lines in the skin or lips. Commercial fillers include Restylane, a naturally occurring substance in the body that is based on non-animal hyaluronic acid. Restylane dissolves safely and naturally within the body over time. The longevity of the results depends on many factors such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age, as well as on the degree of perfection sought. The fat transfer technique involves removing fat from one part of the body, such as the thigh, and painlessly injecting it into the treated area. Excess fat can be frozen for future fat transfer procedures (Forever Young has a licensed & State approved Tissue Bank). The results from both commercial filler and fat transfer procedures last for years.

Thermage CPT

Thermage CPT is a highly advanced, non surgical technique used to achieve lasting skin tightening with no down time. This treatment involves heating the skin and underlying structures with radio-frequency followed by external cryogen cooling. The combined effect creates an immediate collagen contraction giving the appearance of tighter, younger skin. The Thermage CPT system is the most effective noninvasive, non-ablative (meaning no injury to the skin and hence no oozing, bleeding, etc.) radio-frequency system available. Improvement appears slowly over weeks as collagen remodels and the skin and underlying structures tighten. Results last from one to two years.

CoolTouch 3 Plus Laser Treatment

CoolTouch 3 Plus Laser Treatment removes acne scarring gradually and without surgery. This laser treatment is particularly used for deep acne scarring. Unlike other laser treatments, the CoolTouch laser protects the outer skin and sensitive nerve endings with a unique cooling spray while the precise laser pulses light onto the skin to stimulate fibroblasts cells (the cells that produce natural collagen in the skin's foundation). The laser pulses of light penetrate the skin, giving a sensation similar to a slapping of a tight rubber band. Because this is a cellular process, the results of the CoolTouch 3 Plus Laser Treatment happen over a period of months. Multiple treatments are encouraged.

Tuliplift Facelift

This mini-facelift procedure has been personally developed and patented by Dr. Rahimi himself. Dr. Rahimi has designed the Tuliplift Facelift to work very well with dark and olive skin tones. The minimally invasive procedure lifts sagging skin and tightens the neckline. And because the Tuliplift Facelift is done entirely under the skin, it requires only small incisions and produces a minimal risk of scarring. Patients usually recover within seven to 10 days, and have results that last for years.

And the newest Additions:

Mixto Fractional CO2 laser

(For the treatment of Acne scarring and discolorations)


Clear and Brilliant Laser

(This laser was introduced in 2011 to tone and refine the skin and remove brown spots.)

Why Facelift for men is more popular than you think

Over the past ten years there has been a drastic increase in the number of my male patients who are either having or are considering having a facelift. Many men consider facelifts to remain competitive in their work environment. Others want to look healthier or feel more confident in their personal relationships.
