Your Nose, Knows

Facial symmetry is one of the most cherished physical attributes when beauty is measured. Your nose has a lot to do with that symmetry since the nose can sometimes be much larger or smaller than the rest of your facial features, by dipping farther forward or sitting wider than you would like, which can offset your face. Dr. Schneider will work with you to change these cosmetic issues so that you can finally feel confident in the way you look. While these aesthetic concerns are about half of the reasons why you might turn to nose surgery, functional issues are another. To change the way you live your life and how you feel about your facial symmetry, rhinoplasty is an excellent choice. When weighing out your options your nose, knows so why wait?

How You Know It’s Time to Get a Rhinoplasty

No matter whatever way you wear your hair or how much makeup and accessories you add to your outfit, nothing will hide the shape and placement of your nose. If you’ve spent most of your life covering up your nose, then it might be time to think about going in for a rhinoplasty consultation to see if it’s right for you. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons over 200,000 rhinoplasties are done each year which tells you it’s a common choice many people make.

Rhinoplasty is a routine procedure that when it comes to the cosmetic aspects of the surgery, Dr. Schneider has had years of experience in perfecting the exact unique contouring to bring out the best side of your nose. Your nose shouldn’t keep you from taking photos or going out with friends. We know that is can be difficult to feel entirely comfortable in your skin when your nose sits front and center in everything you do. Dr. Schneider creates rhinoplasty plans to take into account your personal preferences for the look of your nose and scientific measurements that will support proportionality and artistry.

Leaning More Toward Functionality Issues than Cosmetic

Since we know that cosmetic rhinoplasty is common for our patients, we also stress the ability of rhinoplasty to support functional enhancements. We correct breathing problems with rhinoplasty, and it can make your life easier by allowing more oxygen to come through obstructed airways. Thinking about the shape of the nose and how you could be experiencing these breathing blocks, we point to the construction of the nostrils, the bridge of the nose and any interior structures that can narrow the airway.

A deviated septum is one of these structural issues that’s caused by cartilage malformation in the area between the nostrils so that one nostril may be smaller than the other. When the septum is offset, we incorporate this adjustment into your cosmetic shaping. The bridge of the nose may have previously been injured or protrude inward from birth as well, but we can reconstruct the bridge so that it’s more open and appears even without any depressions or humps. All of these adaptations in the excess skin or malformed cartilage will improve the function of your nose.

Whatever your primary concern with your nose, at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery, we can help you achieve your goals to breathe and feel better about your appearance. Call Riverview today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Schneider at 651-493-8501.

Ready for Rapid Weight Loss?

If you have your New Year’s resolution on hand, we’ll point out the part where you said you would work on reducing your weight. Before you get stressed out about it, we want you to know that we understand. We know it’s not an easy feat to accomplish, weight loss, but when you finally get to it, you will be saving yourself lots of heartbreak when it comes to future health problems. At Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery, we work with many patients that have this same goal, and we hope to make it a reality. Finally, there are supervised weight loss programs that could help you lose the weight and get back on track to a healthier you. We offer our clients at Riverview a weight loss program that combines hCG treatment alongside a strict custom diet plan.

Benefits of hCG Program

Before we get started with explaining why hCG treatment is best for weight loss, we want to explain to our patients what it is. This added component of weight loss is produced by a naturally occurring body hormone that helps give your metabolism a boost, gonadotropin. Most people hit a plateau, and they can’t seem to offset it, but with hCG therapy, we can introduce a hormone that works directly with the hypothalamus to burn the excess fat. Stored fat is meant to be used when you need it, if it sits for too long it means you’ve consumed too much or haven’t required that energy. We have designed a new assisted weight loss program that will help you lose the weight. The benefits of our hCG program at Riverview are:

  • Natural treatment
  • Medically supervised treatment
  • Weekly meetings Lose up to 30 pounds in under 45 days
  • You won’t feel irritable or hungry
  • Receive custom diet plan
  • Help with resistance workouts
  • A custom nutrition and workout plan

Weight Loss Game Changer

You’ve tried to diet before, but nothing has worked; we have heard this a million times, and it’s a real problem. Many people usually work their diets the way that they did when they were in their early twenties and assume these diets will work for them. The truth is that your body chemistry evolves and when you age your metabolism isn’t quite the same. To produce a diet that yields results, it’s important that you don’t overlook this key factor. At Riverview, we provide our patients with these hCG hormone supplements that will work to increase your metabolism to burn the fat and act as an appetite suppressant. Once you can focus on your healthy body and the strict diet plan we’ve laid out for you, you will see the changes in your body, and you’ll start to feel amazing. So what does this diet require?

Portion Size and Only 500 Calories a Day

Most people understand the concept that the more you eat, the more you’ll need to work those calories off. If you’re not as active as you need to be and know that your lifestyle doesn’t allow for many exercises, then a lower calorie diet is the best option. Every patient that starts the hCG program with us understands that we need to lower their caloric intake significantly to save them excess fat storage. While you’re given the hCG hormone supplement, we will lower your calorie level to 500 calories. In addition to this calorie reduction, we will help you plan out your ideal portion size so you can visualize the correct amount of these pre-approved foods you can consume. We know it seems low, but combined with the hCG hormone, you’ll need to kickstart your metabolism, and this is the best way.

Types of Foods You Can Eat:

  • Green leafy veggies
  • Lemons
  • Onions
  • Lobster
  • Tomatoes
  • Whitefish
  • Celery
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Asparagus
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Water
  • Crab
  • Radishes
  • Cucumber

  • Naturally produced spices and leafy herbs

Will I Need to Exercise?

Yes, we will work with you to show you how to exercise and make suggestions for resistance and cardio training methods. To increase your metabolism it’s important to combine diet and exercise so that our clients will understand that not only will you commit to this diet for the period of treatment, but we hope to teach you healthy habits that will last for years to come.

How Long Will I be on This Diet?

At Riverview, our hCG diet lasts for 23-30 days and is monitored by our medically trained staff to check on your progress. We will offer counseling and guidance in any portion of your diet that you find difficult or require modification.

This Diet Isn’t for Everyone

Not every client will be ideal for this type of diet, and we do ask that you come in for an hCG diet consultation with Dr. Schneider to make sure it’s right for you. The ideal patients will have to be in the right mindset to try this strict plan, and we want to ensure you are committed to it. We will conduct a full medical history to make sure there are no health issues that could cause you distress or become complicated with a strict diet.
