Is it possible to develop an allergy as an Adult?

An allergy occurs when an otherwise harmless substance gets flagged as dangerous by the immune system, which then launches an attack. Common allergens include pet dander, pollen, grass, mold spores, dust mites and certain proteins found in foods. The symptoms can arise such as itchy eyes, runny nose and sneezing — are the result of your immune system ramping up to evict the perceived intruders.

Although adult-onset allergies are very common and can cause sinus headaches, nasal congestion, and overall lack of energy and a feeling of being sick. It can also lead to sinus infections, shortness of breath and can make asthma worse. The good news is that a simple test in our office can diagnose the cause of the allergy and we have a variety of state of the art treatment options available.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) for the Male Patient in Los Angeles /Glendale /Burbank /Pasadena/Encino

The reasons for surgery vary from patient to patient. Often there are functional, as well as aesthetic reasons that men undergo rhinoplasty surgery. For example, nasal injuries as a result of sports injuries; both the function and the external features of the nose can usually be returned to their pre-injury state through rhinoplasty without further changes. In some cases, improvement to patients’ breathing by fixing the deviated septum and structures around it can make a major difference in the quality of sleep and overall well-being. Nonetheless, changes for purely aesthetic purposes are frequently sought by men, and this type of male rhinoplasty is increasing.

Better Looking Men Have a Competitive Edge

Plastic Surgery Options For Men

At the practice of Michael Bublik, MD, the staff is committed to working closely with patients towards their well-being, ensuring personalized attention and the highest standards of patient care.Dr. Michael Bublik, a board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, has noticed a significant increase of male patients seeking his expertise to improve their looks.

While Dr. Bublik has performed plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures on various male celebrities, he’s quick to note that most of his male patients are average men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, since 1997, men’s cosmetic procedures have increased 106%. The top five cosmetic surgeries for men are liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose jobs), eyelid surgery, gynecomastia (removal of excess breast tissue) and ear reshaping.

Baby Boomers Take the BOTOX Plunge

Dr. Michael Bublik, a board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery in Glendale, California, notes that many of his patients are baby boomers. He emphasizes that not only 50-plus women are booking more appointments for cosmetic procedures, but men as well.

Dr. Bublik is aware that appearance is an important element in making a good impression in the workplace and in social settings, and warns that people should not underestimate a first impression. He notes that according to 2011 research by Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, people assess your competence and trustworthiness in a quarter of a second (250 milliseconds)–based solely on how you look. Dr. Bublik emphasizes that appearance is extraordinarily powerful because it’s the first filter when meeting someone new, and that, whether we like it or not, we are being judged by our looks.

Turn Back the Clock with Botox and Dermal Fillers

When choosing between spending on designer shoes and getting a more attractive and rested appearance, women are opting for the latter.

Dr. Michael Bublik, a double board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, is fond to say that many of his patients consider the cost of injectable dermal fillers and Botox a much better return on investment than buying new designer clothes or jewelry.  

While many of his patients in their 30s and 40s wouldn’t necessarily consider a facelift, they see their regular visits to Dr. Bublik for fillers and a touch of Botox as part of their regular beauty regime, much as they do haircuts, waxing and facials.  And Dr. Bublik is candid in saying that not all of his patients are high powered executives or celebrities, but regular women who know that a fancy new purse or watch can’t bring them the satisfaction of looking in the mirror and seeing a fresher and more attractive version of themselves.

Chin Augmentation (Genioplasty)

Over the last few years, the procedure climbed sharply in both women and men, as well as in all patients over the age of 20, with the largest increase seen in patients age 40 or older.

Face-lift - Everyone Ages Differently by Dr. Michael Bublik Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Michael Bublik, a double board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, explains that facial aging is a multifactorial, 3D process with anatomic, biochemical, and genetic variables. Exposure to the sun, alcohol use, smoking, body mass index, medications, use of drugs, and other elements, contribute to facial aging changes.

Everyone ages differently. Some individuals manage to maintain their youthful good looks with minimal skin looseness, droopiness and sagging well into their 50s, while others are not so lucky.

Dr. Bublik clarifies that most of the aging changes occur in the midface, usually beginning in the mid-40s. Dr. Bublik’s patients first come to see him with concerns about under-eye bags and wrinkles, as well as smile lines - also known as nasolabial folds. These are the lines and creases that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and are the result of normal loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as people age. The lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), are another sign of aging that frustrate many patients, as those lines can make them look unhappy. Marionette lines form as facial volume begins to lessen and deeper creases begin to form below the mouth.

Teenage Rhinoplasty by Dr. Michael Bublik Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Beauty is being recognized and marketed more and more to people of younger age, and as a result, teenage patients are one of the most common groups seeking rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of the fastest growing surgeries in high school girls AND boys. Dr. Bublik performs a significant proportion of his Rhinoplasty surgeries on teenagers as he realizes that any cosmetic disturbance in the appearance of the nose can have a significant impact on one’s self-image and confidence. Self-image and confidence is important as we grow into young adults. Rhinoplasty can lead to a very positive change for these patients, especially since they have healthy tissues and generally heal well after surgery.
