Now Available: VelaShape


A new non-invasive treatment available in Dr. Anigian’s office targets those trouble areas that diet and exercise just can’t fix. VelaShape aims to contour the body through cellulite and circumferential reduction. It can be used to treat areas all over the body, including the neck, arms, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. 

How Does it Work?

VelaShape technology uses infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum to deeply heat fat cells, surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers.  In just three treatments, patients can expect to see their skin become noticeably smoother with a reduction in cellulite and circumference. VelaShape can produce dramatic changes without significant discomfort or even downtime. In fact, many patients even describe the VelaShape experience as feeling like a deep-tissue massage.

What Patients Can Expect

Patients who undergo VelaShape treatments can expect to see two common issues improve gradually within the target site or sites. The first is a smoothing of the skin accompanied by a localized reduction in cellulite. Second, patients can expect the treated area to be noticeably reshaped along with circumferential reduction.  Patients have reported their clothes fitting better and feeling more confident after finishing their VelaShape treatments.

Breast Implants

Saline, Silicone, or the IDEAL IMPLANT – How to Choose?

When preparing for a breast augmentation or breast reconstruction procedure, one of the most central decisions to be made concerns breast implant type. It can be a controversial question – saline versus silicone – but ultimately the choice comes down to patient preference and body type. 

What’s the difference? 

Saline implants consist of an outer silicone shell and sterile saltwater filler. The implant is inserted into the body empty and inflated with the water solution once in place. Filling the implant during the operation provides the physician with a greater ability to achieve symmetry, for both single and bilateral implant procedures. However, a common criticism of saline implants is their water-balloon like feel. Should the implant rupture, the water solution is absorbed safely into the body. The rupture will also be immediately apparent, prompting either removal or replacement of the implant in question. 

Silicone implants are made of both a silicone outer shell and inner filling. The silicone gel filling is a thick substance intended to provide the breast a more natural look and feel. Silicone implants are pre-filled and therefore require a larger incision than most saline implants. In the event of an implant rupture, the gel is typically caught in the surrounding tissue. For this reason, silicone implant ruptures are not always obvious and are known as silent ruptures. However, silicone gel is not known to be harmful or cause any long-lasting health problems. Nonetheless, the Food and Drug Administration recommends that women with silicone breast implants undergo MRI scans every two years, beginning the third year after surgery. 

A new implant on the market, the FDA approved IDEAL IMPLANT, sought to combine the natural feel of silicone with the rupture awareness of saline. The IDEAL IMPLANT is composed of a series of shells and chambers, which are filled with saline solution. Like other saline implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT is inflated during surgery. Thanks to its complex structure, the IDEAL IMPLANT looks and feels more like a more traditional silicone implant. 

Risks Associated with Breast Augmentation or Reconstructive Surgery

As with any surgery, risks are present when undergoing either breast augmentation or breast reconstruction procedures. Some of the most common risks or complications include, breast pain, infection, changes to nipple and breast sensitivity, implant leakage, implant rupture, or capsular contracture. Capsular contracture refers to an accumulation of scar tissue around the implant, which can affect the look and feel of the implant as well as cause breast pain. 

How to decide? 

Ultimately, the decision must be based upon personal preference and the physician’s recommendation based upon body type.  For example, silicone implants are favored for patients with limited fat and soft tissue in the breast, a typical characteristic of post-mastectomy individuals. In contrast, for women who begin with C cups, saline, silicone, and the IDEAL IMPLANT will yield good results. 

Finally, cost can be a factor as saline implants are typically less expensive than their silicone or IDEAL IMPLANT counterparts.  

Whichever option is ultimately chosen, it is most important that the patient has realistic expectations for her new body contour.  Understanding the risks as well as the final results is paramount before beginning any surgery. The main goals, as always, are patient safety and satisfaction. 


Now Available: Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2

Aging skin is increasingly susceptible to lipid depletion: the loss of natural compounds in skin’s surface, present in the form of ceramides, natural cholesterol, and fatty acids. This lipid loss compromises skin’s natural protective barrier, resulting in visible signs of accelerated aging, as skin loses its ability to effectively self-repair.

Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. This unique anti aging lipid correction cream contains the first 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio to help restore skin's external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in visible signs of accelerated aging. Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 has been clinically proven to improve the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance.

  • Restores essential skin lipids: ceramides, natural cholesterol, and fatty acids
  • Improves the look of skin fullness, texture, and pore appearance
  • Improves the appearance of skin evenness and overall radiance
  • Provides improved hydration in 24 hours
  • Unique stabilization system in a lightweight and fast-absorbing texture

The Fat Transfer Technique

Compared to synthetic fillers, fat transfer, also known as fat injection, is more long lasting and safe, as there is no risk of an adverse reaction to a foreign substance.

In October, Dr. Anigian attended the American Society of Plastic Surgery annual meeting in Boston.  The conference provides a venue for plastic surgeons from all over the world to discuss ideas and trends as well as to learn about innovations in the field. This year, Dr. Anigian placed a personal emphasis on the use of fat in various procedures. He wanted to learn more about how other doctors were using and advancing the technique in comparison to his own practice. 

To his surprise, Dr. Anigian found that much of the discussion over innovations with fat transfer related to procedures he had been using in Dallas for years. Dr. Anigian has long understood how to employ fat as a natural filler in areas prone to losing volume like the face or hands. Compared to synthetic fillers, fat transfer, also known as fat injection, is more long lasting and safe, as there is no risk of an adverse reaction to a foreign substance. 

In a fat transfer procedure, fat is removed from an area with excess fat, such as the thigh and placed in an area suffering from lack of volume. Common treatment areas include the face, breasts, hands and buttocks.

In his practice, Dr. Anigian has long been expertly employing the fat transfer technique to improve skin quality, thickness and elasticity. He uses fat transfers to improve the shape of the face by adding volume to the brow, cheeks or mouth, as needed. Dr. Anigian can even use fat transfer for breast augmentation, providing a completely natural and long lasting filler. 

Dr. Anigian, having used this technique for over fifteen years, is an expert in the field, not only in Dallas, but also across the country. Fat transfer offers a completely safe, natural and permanent way to enhance the body’s contour.
