The symbol on Dr.  Anil Shah's door | Chicago

The symbol on Dr. Anil Shah's door is a cursive font showing the letters A and S intertwined. Many people think the A stands for Anil and the S for Shah. However, the A and S also stand for other divisions within Dr. Shah's brand system including Aesthetic Skin, Aesthetic Surgery, Aesthetic Spa.

The design was created by Baade Graphics and was meant to interpret the flow of figures and help represent the harmony and balance of aesthetics and surgery (hence the musical flowing quality of the logo) and a balance of forms.

Finally, the standard of attractiveness and beauty continues to rise. Many patients are now incorporating minimally invasive procedures as part of a maintenance program to help look their best. Despite eating right and working out, some patients will still notice changes that might bother them, such as lines, brown spots, hollowness around the eyes, etc. Minimally invasive procedures offer a quick, reliable solution to these aesthetic issue to help restore youthfulness to one's face.

Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation on the rise | Illinois

More than 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures (both minimally invasive and surgical) were performed in the US in 2012, the most ever. The largest increase was in minimally invasive procedures. Botox was the most popular, followed by soft tissue facial fillers, chemical peels, and laser hair removal.

So why do the minimally invasive procedures continue to rise. Patients love these procedures for several reasons. First of all, the results are appreciable soon and cost effective compared to a surgical procedure. There are not many things which for under $1000 can make you look better instantly and for a sustained period of time. The value lies for many patients in feeling better about themselves.

Many of these procedures are performed quite comfortably in the office with little to no downtime. Certain procedures, such as any type of filler around the eye can have a higher chance of creating downtime such as a bruise and slight swelling. Other procedures such as botox, have a very low chance of creating a bruise. Many patients have these procedures on their lunch break and go back to work.

Chicago | Transgender Adam's Apple Shave

Chondrolaryngoplasty is the shaving of the Adam's Apple or thyroid cartilage to improve the appearance of the neck, particularly in transgender patients. A prominent Adam's Apple can be an obvious sign to outsiders that a transitioning patient is a male. Some patients opt to have this procedure performed because of the prominence of their Adam's Apple. This procedure is typically performed through a horizontal crease in the neck.


Do I need general or local anesthetic?

The procedure can be performed under local or general anesthetic. If it is being combined with another procedure a general anesthetic is administered. If it is the sole procedure, it can be safely performed in the office with a local anesthetic.

Is it dangerous?

The thyroid cartilage is near the vocal cords so there are risks associated with the surgery. However, conservative reduction can help significantly reduce these complications.

Will it change my voice?

There have been some reports of slight alteration in voice, however it is quite uncommon for one's voice to be altered with this procedure.

Caviar Injections in the Face | Illinois

While most of us think of caviar as just a luxurious edible indulgence, a few doctors in the Middle East have started injecting caviar into the face. Theoretically, the benefits of caviar are that it is similar in format to human skin. Vitamins and minerals are reportedly helping faces to look younger and firmer.

There are obvious concerns about injecting caviar intradermally and subcutaneously including safety, infection and efficacy. When injecting your face, make sure the product or products have a long track record of safety and that the benefit to risk ratio is in your favor.
