Are Your Upper Arms Scary?

This month everything’s a little bit more frightening. Gator games with LSU and Georgia. Friday the 13th marathons on AMC. Wondering if you’ve purchased enough candy to get you through the onslaught of miniature ghouls and goblins sure to trick or treat at your house. That’s scary!  And those upper arms…  It’s true. If you’ve […]

Addressing Aging in the Midface — the Facelift

Facelifts have long been a staple of the cosmetic surgery world. The first documented facelift was performed in Berlin in 1901. Sometimes in the past there have been cases of celebrities getting a less than good job. If you’re a little older, you may remember Frank Gifford coming back to Monday Night Football one fall […]

Women are Happy with their Augmentation Surgery

Every year in the U.S. around 300,000 women opt to have breast augmentation. Augmentation is consistently the most popular cosmetic surgery. That’s true for Dr. Gaines’s practice, as well.  Dr. Gaines likes for his patients to have as much information as possible about the surgeries and other treatments we provide. To that end, this month […]

You Can Regrow Your Own Hair

Whether you’re a man or a woman, no one likes to see more and more hair on their brush in the morning. While men usually have areas that become fully bald, women tend to suffer from universal thinning hair that starts along the part line.  This has long been an area of some questionable infomercial […]

Sagging Breasts Can Make for Sagging Spirits

As we age, everything sags; it’s just a part of normal aging. But for a woman, one especially unwelcome area where sagging occurs is her breasts. With the passing years, our breasts flatten, lose volume (especially toward the upper breast), and the nipples can even begin to point downward. If you’ve had a child or […]

Could Spring Mean Longer Eyelashes?

Some women naturally have long, dark eyelashes. Don’t you just hate them? For the rest of us, it’s mascara, eyeliner, and maybe even false eyelashes to get the look we want. But what if there was a way to actually grow your eyelashes longer and thicker? And what if you wouldn’t have to sell your […]

Don’t Invite Your Spider Veins to Juniper Springs

A great getaway from Gainesville is Juniper Springs. That’s even more true during this year thanks to this lingering virus. But have you been turning down invites to don your swimsuit and wade into the crystal-clear springs knowing that everyone could see your spider veins? That’s no way to live in steamy Gainesville where the […]

Liposuction, the Enemy of Fat

Unless you’re one of the UF cross country team runners, you probably have pockets of fat that seem utterly indifferent to your attempts to remove them with dietary restraint and exercise. You know where these pockets are the most stubborn — the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, even under the chin. Liposuction with Dr. Gaines is the […]

Should I Have Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck?

If you’re over 40, odds are you have some issues with your lower abdomen. If a person has gained and then lost weight, if they’ve gained a few pounds as their metabolism has slowed down, or if aging skin and muscles have simply created a pooch on the lower abdomen, it’s an almost universal complaint. […]

Taking Years Off Those Windows to the World — Your Eyes

The eyes have it. While this is a take on the usual “ayes have it” from parliamentary procedure, it is really true — the eyes do have it. When asked, most people say the eyes are the first thing they notice when looking at another person, particularly for the first time. Unfortunately, the skin around […]
