Since the upper face doesn't age as quickly as the lower face and neck, some avoid surgery thinking it’s unnecessary and instead seek other, less effective, nonsurgical options. While surgery can seem daunting, when your neck area does not match your upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be the best and most cost-effective solution to get the permanent results you desire. In just one procedure, you look and feel years younger!

How Breast Implants Affect Mammograms

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Women with breast implants are not more likely to develop breast cancer than women without breast implants. Since the material of a breast implant cannot be x-rayed, many are quick to assume the implant increases the risk of breast cancer. This is incorrect and misleading. While breast implants do affect the method of how a mammogram is performed, they do not prevent breast augmentation patients from receiving a mammogram completely.

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

A number of women and men come to my practice with misconceptions and misinformation about rhinoplasty procedures. If you’re in Winter Park or Central Florida and considering a rhinoplasty (nose surgery), there are five facts you should be aware of.


Dr. Scott Rotatori's office is happy to announce we offer the CoolMini! The CoolMini applicator by CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared completely non-invasive answer to unwanted submental fat…aka, the double chin. It can also be applied to tough to treat areas like unwanted fat around the knees and underarms.


Women and men considering liposuction, also known as lipoplasty surgery, may wonder how they can determine whether this procedure is right for them. Liposuction is growing in popularity, and is an excellent option for patients who want to eliminate small areas of fat, such as the "love handles".


Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures. A breast augmentation cost can vary widely and depend on several variables. It’s important to make sure the fee quote includes the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia charges, implant costs and pre- and post-operative care. Each of these components may vary widely depending upon the surgeon’s practice.


Combining Cosmetic Surgery Procedures: Is It Safe?

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgical procedures are sometimes combined for optimum efficiency and minimizing the numbers of recoveries and anesthetics required for a desired outcome. It is very common for patients to have two or three procedures done at the same time.

Do Non-Surgical Face Lifts Work?

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Yes, they do! You can achieve very nice improvements of facial aging changes with fillers, fat injections, Botox and laser treatments, all of which are non-invasive face lifts with no down time. As we age, the fat in our faces atrophies or is lost. The effect on our face is similar to what happens when you let the air out of a balloon. The skin loosens and folds and lines or wrinkles appear.


Body Lift Surgery - Why It's Worth It

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Many people, who lose massive amounts of weight whether through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, are left with sagging skin and stubborn deposits of fat on various parts of their bodies, especially around the midsection. This can make it difficult for them to embrace their new bodies and find clothes that fit properly, as well as making them more vulnerable to skin infections and causing self-consciousness and general discomfort.


Important Non-Cosmetic Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

If you’ve undergone a recent weight loss or pregnancy, you may be considering a tummy tuck. While tummy tuck surgery can be somewhat strenuous, it is a great option to consider and not just for cosmetic reasons. There are some additional health benefits associated with tummy tucks! Abdominoplasty – or a tummy tuck, as it is more commonly known – is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens the muscles and removes loose skin and fat from the abdomen so that it appears flat and toned.


If you’ve been considering Botox, consider the side effects and be sure to choose an experienced medical professional. The best practitioners know the correct sites of injection to avoid side effects such as droopy eyelids. Additionally, a small, highly concentrated dose of Botox is less likely to spread from the injection site than a large diluted dose.


Why Botox? Let’s start with the benefits of Botox as a wrinkle corrector. Where do wrinkles come from? A wrinkle in the skin is typically formed perpendicular to a contracting muscle located directly beneath it. For example, the muscle in the forehead is a vertical muscle, and when it contracts (such as when you raise your eyebrows), the lines that form (wrinkles) will be horizontal. Likewise, the two muscles that are responsible for the frown lines are positioned slightly horizontally between the eyebrows, so when they contract, the frown lines appear vertical.


Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is used to treat various ailments. The three main benefits of Botox are muscle spasm control, severe underarm sweating and cosmetic improvement. In this article we concentrate on the cosmetic applications of Botox. Botox Cosmetic is used for the temporary smoothing of glabellar lines (also called frown lines), which are the lines between your eyebrows that can make you look tired, unhappy or angry.


Let’s face it. Very few of us are 100% comfortable with the way we look. Whether it’s trying to keep up with social expectations or meeting our own personal goals, most of us have at least one area of our body that we poke and wince at every time we strip down for a shower – or for other activities.


Have diet and exercise failed to reduce those pockets of unwanted fat on your body? Then liposuction with Dr. Scott Rotatori may provide the help you want. Liposuction is designed to improve body shape and remove stubborn fat from areas such as the face and neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, calves, ankles and male breasts.


Get the Red Carpet Look with Our New Oxylight Facial

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Do you wonder how celebrities always seem to have beautiful, glowing skin? Hint: they weren’t born with it. While there are many skin care treatments out there, the latest, and most sought after treatment is the Oxylight Facial. The Oxylight “Red Carpet Facial” uses the latest technology by infusing oxygen into your skin with little recovery time.


Don’t wait! Now is the perfect time to get that perfect skin. You can look younger and more beautiful without going through advanced surgery and having a lengthy downtime. But with all of the acne treatments, micro-needling and chemical peels out there, what is the best treatment for you?


Dr. Rotatori is an experienced board certified plastic surgeon that is known in the Orlando community as trustworthy, caring and skilled. He has achieved widespread recognition for his outstanding work in breast surgery, facial cosmetic surgery and body contouring. He is well known for his surgical expertise and artistic skills. Patients come from all over Florida to get the results that Dr. Rotatori’s skill, personal commitment and experience can offer.


What is a Body Lift Procedure? A body lift procedure improves the shape and tone by removing excess skin and the underlying fat. Excess sagging fat and skin are caused in part by poor tissue elasticity. A complete lower body lift surgery treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure.


Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery in the Orlando area frequently seek relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction usually can solve these problems as well as improve the size and shape of your breasts. Following breast reduction surgery, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of your body, and clothes will fit you better.


When my patients are considering a tummy tuck, many of them may have heard about the option of a “mini” tummy tuck and wondered how it was different from a full tummy tuck. I explain to my patients that it’s important to realize that choosing between the two can actually be quite simple because they are appropriate for two distinctly different sets of patients.


Liposuction has become one of the country’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. When performed properly by a skilled surgeon, it is quick, safe, and works. With the tremendous growth in the demand for this procedure, it seems like doctors everywhere are offering liposuction.


As anyone who has gone through the process can tell you, choosing the right doctor to perform your liposuction can be both time-consuming and frustrating. Even after you’ve narrowed down the list of surgeons to those properly qualified, it then comes down to choosing the right one for you.


In "I Feel Bad About My Neck," Nora Ephron gave voice to generations of women who have been silently hiding their necks like turtles in scarves, boas, turtlenecks and chokers. Her blunt advice is to start concealing the neck at age 43. "Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn't if it had a neck." Sure, she had a point. But there is an equal embarrassment perched right above the neck: the sagging jawline.


When considering your options with plastic surgery, there are many factors to weigh. Among the various considerations, such as cost of surgery, aftercare and recovery and the potential risks and complications, preparing for the initial consultation and finding a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon should be at the top of the list. However, along with credentials, hospital privileges and accomplishments, our Dr. Rotatori before and after photos can play a vital role in your plastic surgery decision making process.


With the development of treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane, Radiesse and quality skin care products in Winter Park, patients have a wide range of choices to help with facial rejuvenation. Although these treatments can provide temporary improvement, many patients have a difficult time choosing between nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and a facelift.


If you’re trying to lose weight, seeing those extra pounds start to melt away is exciting. But remember, you can’t always control where you’re losing the weight – it’s going to come off across your entire body, not just in one or two “target areas.”


Plastic surgeons are trained to perform surgery. What many people do not realize is that only some of the 24 medical specialties recognized by The American Board of Medical Specialties include surgical training, and plastic surgery is one that does.
