Summertime Makeover!

June 17, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-186472261Let’s hear it for summertime in Chicago! There’s so much to do and see: The Millennium Park Music Series, Taste of Chicago, the Cubs, the Sox, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Navy Pier— the list goes on and on. And that doesn’t even include get- togethers and special occasions with family and friends: a graduation, wedding, backyard picnic or a day at the beach. So, there isn’t only a lot to do and see, there are also many opportunities to be seen. Why not make sure you look your very best for all of these fun summer activities and for the photos that are certain to make their way to Facebook! Dr. Gary Wiesman at The Art of Rhinoplasty is the facial plastic surgeon Chicago, IL, residents depend on for natural, subtle and beautiful results. Dr. Wiesman specializes exclusively in facial aesthetic and reconstructive treatments.

The Botox® Chicago Wants

If you’re noticing a few more lines and wrinkles around your eyes or creases at the corners of your mouth, then Botox® Cosmetic may be the solution for you. This purified protein is carefully injected under the skin into areas surrounding your eyes, forehead and mouth, smoothing away and relaxing wrinkles. Your smiling face will have a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance both in person and in photos.

To look more youthful in a bikini and summer outfits, there’s Vanquish™, the pain-free technology for fat melting that Chicago loves. Without even touching your body, Vanquish™ uses the heat of radio frequency waves to destroy fat cells from the abdomen, legs, thighs, buttocks, love handles, back and more. There are no incisions and no risk of harm to surrounding healthy tissues. You’ll see inches disappear from your body in as few as two to three 45-minute sessions. And unlike other fat-loss methods such as liposuction, there’s no downtime after treatment.

Wedding Day Beauty

If you’re getting married this summer, keep this in mind—the wedding will last one day, but your photos and video will be around for a lifetime. Wouldn’t you like to see memories that are forever flattering? If so, then now is the time to have rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. This surgery can reshape, reduce or enhance a person’s nose in order to achieve facial harmony. Many rhinoplasty patients also feel a noted increase in their self-confidence, and even report becoming more out-going. Nose surgery does require some time for recovery as well as for the swelling to recede. So, be sure to schedule your procedure well in advance of your big day!

Exceptional Sinus Surgery Success with the PROPEL Sinus Implant in Chicago, IL

February 24, 2015

178094009Individuals with chronic sinusitis frequently experience facial pain, persistent headaches, difficulty breathing, and an impaired sense of smell and/or taste. This condition, which affects approximately 31 million Americans, can greatly diminish quality of life on a daily basis. Fortunately, sinus surgery can alleviate the symptoms of chronic sinusitis by opening the obstructed passages for improved function and comfort. Now, with the revolutionary new PROPEL sinus implant, board certified otolaryngologist Dr. Gary Wiesman helps sinus surgery patients achieve vastly improved, long-lasting results at his state-of-the-art practice in Chicago, IL.

How Does the PROPEL Sinus Implant Work?

The PROPEL sinus implant is a spring-like, dissolvable implant that props open the sinus walls following surgery to maintain the opening created by the procedure. The expanded implant then gradually and consistently delivers an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid to the sinus lining, a proven medication called mometasone furoate.

As it reduces inflammation, the implant also ensures that the enlargement of the sinuses is maintained, all the while reducing the risk of scarring. Because the implant dissolves completely over time, there is no need to worry about having it replaced or removed. Always at the forefront of the latest technology, Dr. Gary Wiesman is one of only a few physicians in Chicago to offer this innovative new product, the PROPEL sinus implant. Board certified in both otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery, Dr. Wiesman can help you not only breathe better, but help you achieve your cosmetic goals as well so that you can look as good as you feel.

Additional Benefits for Sinusitis Sufferers

In addition to promoting improved healing following sinus surgery, the PROPEL sinus implant effectively reduces or eliminates the need for systemic anti-inflammatory medications in pill form. Many of these oral steroids have been linked to health complications, particularly in patients for whom a drug interaction is a potential risk. The implant’s ability to deliver the anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining is among the product’s chief benefits. Reducing swelling after sinus surgery helps alleviate the recurrence of congestion and pain.

Schedule Your Sinus Consultation Today

If you suffer from the symptoms of chronic sinusitis and your condition is negatively affecting your daily life, Dr. Wiesman wants to help. With the latest in state-of-the-art technology and decades of experience in his field, Dr. Wiesman is your premier destination for sinusitis relief with the PROPEL sinus implant. Contact us today to learn more about how the PROPEL steroid-releasing sinus implant can help you finally find lasting relief from chronic congestion, headaches, facial pain, and more.

What is Blepharoplasty? How an Eye Lift Can Revitalize Your Appearance

October 22, 2014

180850780As the skin of the face ages, it naturally begins to lose elasticity. Loss of elasticity results in a sagging, drooping appearance; this is particularly noticeable in the delicate area of the eye. Eyes affected by hooded upper lids and bulging lower lids appear extremely tired and aged beyond their years. At the Chicago, ILcosmetic surgery office of Dr. Gary Wiesman, patients seeking a more youthful look and increased self-confidence can recapture the fresh faces of their youth with a procedure called blepharoplasty. The blepharoplasty procedure is designed to promote long-lasting, natural-looking results, and has been proven both safe and effective.

How Can a Blepharoplasty Benefit Me?

Excess skin in the upper lids can give the eyes a hooded effect and, in severe cases, may even impair vision. Fatty deposits and loose skin under the eyes lead to a drooping, baggy appearance that many associate with advanced age. Unfortunately, it isn’t only elderly men and women who experience these issues. In fact, many individuals as young as 35 may notice that their eyelids are negatively affected by lack of elasticity and the constant forces of gravity. With blepharoplasty – also called an eye lift or eyelid surgery Dr. Gary Wiesman can bring back the youthful look of your eyes and rejuvenate your overall appearance.

The Eye Lift Process

A blepharoplasty may be performed to improve the appearance of the upper or lower eyelids, or both at the same time. The surgery typically takes between 45 minutes and two hours to complete and is usually performed with local anesthetic and sedation to ensure total patient comfort. Incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelid tissue so there are no visible scars upon healing. Results are immediately visible after swelling has diminished and continue to improve over the course of the following year. Enjoy a fully refreshed, younger-looking appearance for years after your procedure with an eye lift surgery, a treatment that is customized and meticulously performed with your unique needs in mind.

Clear, bright, and healthy eyes are among the most vital components of an attractive face. If you feel that excess skin, sagging muscle, and fat deposits in your upper or lower eyelids are detracting from your natural beauty, we can help.

Find Lasting Relief from Sinusitis with In-Office Balloon Sinus Dilation from Dr. Gary Wiesman

August 22, 2014

476282787Sinusitis is a potentially serious inflammatory sinus condition that affects more than 31 million men and women in America.  This affliction costs us approximately $1 billion on over-the-counter treatments and $150 million on prescription medications every year. If you suffer from sinusitis, you know how it can negatively affect your life on a daily basis,as well as how difficult it can be to find real relief that lasts. At the Wiesman Institute in Chicago, IL, board-certified otolaryngologist Dr. Gary G. Wiesman specializes in helping patients just like you reclaim their lives, their comfort, and their health with in-office balloon sinus dilation.

Benefits of Balloon Sinus Dilation

Balloon sinus dilation, performed right here in our office, may help significantly reduce the likelihood that surgery will be needed in cases of acute sinusitis. The process involves the strategic placement of a small balloon within the sinus cavities; when the balloon is carefully inflated, the sinus pathways are gently opened. This quick, convenient procedure effectively reshapes the internal anatomy of the nose and the sinuses, promoting drainage that is more natural, easier breathing, and relief from uncomfortable pressure.

Patients who undergo this minimally invasive procedure report substantial relief from their sinusitis symptoms beginning the very same day. Other conditions commonly treated with balloon sinus dilation include:

  • Mild to moderate deviation of septum
  • Isolated and multi-sinus disease
  • Maxillary accessory ostia
  • Disease of the frontal, sphenoid, maxillary, or maxillary and anterior ethmoid sinuses
  • Nasal polyps caused by chronic sinusitis

Dr. Wiesman will take the time to talk with you about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and any other health conditions you may have in order to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and an effective and sustainable treatment plan.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Chicago: How It Can Help You

July 24, 2014

486644541Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, is a highly effective treatment method that increases the amount of oxygen in the blood, thereby allowing the body to heal more rapidly and more effectively. It is used to treat a wide variety of health concerns in patients of all ages, and it is available at the office of Dr. Gary Wiesman at the Wiesman Institute. Dr. Gary Wiesman is the only facial plastic surgeon in Chicago to offer this revolutionary technology, helping his patients recover more completely and more quickly following injury, illness, or surgery.

HBOT: One Simple Treatment, Countless Health Benefits

In a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, the air pressure of the atmosphere within is increased by up to three times the normal level. This means that the patient’s lungs are able to take in and process a substantially higher amount of pure oxygen. The newly oxygen-rich blood cells then carry the life-giving O2 throughout the body to other organs and tissues, creating the environment for optimal healing with new stem cells and other natural growth factors. HBOT has been clinically proven effective in treating patients with:

  • Infections of the skin or bone
  • Anemia
  • Skin grafts
  • Burns
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Embolisms, or air bubbles in the blood
  • Wounds that do not heal as a result of diabetes or other complications

Primarily, the HBOT chambers at our office are utilized in the healing process following facial plastic surgery, including rhinoplasty, facelifts, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), and more. The bruising and swelling so many patients suffer through following surgery are dramatically reduced, and healing time is much shorter – allowing you to move on with your life and enjoy your new look even sooner.

Because we emphasize patient comfort in all aspects of our treatment, our hyperbaric oxygen chambers can even be used while you sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite television shows or movies. Accelerating the healing process and promoting a healthier mind and body has never been easier or more pleasant, thanks to the advanced technology of HBOT at the Wiesman Institute.


Explore the Possibilities of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Whether you are currently considering undergoing a facial procedure, have already had treatment, or you’d simply like to learn more about the multitude of benefits associated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Dr. Gary Wiesman is here to help. Our primary objective is to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, enhancing your natural beauty with state-of-the-art technology, decades of experience, and a caring and artistic touch.
