Notice: Allergan Withdraws Textured Breast Implants


Allergan has announced today that it has voluntarily withdrawn BIOCELL Textured Breast Implants and Tissue Expanders from the worldwide market.

Effective immediately, healthcare providers will no longer implant new BIOCELL® textured breast implants and tissue expanders and unused products should be returned to Allergan. The withdrawal followed a request of the US FDA, which was based on new available data.

Allergen emphasized that there is still no recommendation to remove or replace textured breast implants from patients without symptoms.

I have implanted only a handful of this type of implant over the past 20 years. My office will individually notify those patients.

This global recall does not affect Allergan’s NATRELLE® smooth or MICROCELL® breast implants and tissue expanders.

See Allergan press release for more information.

Effective Treatment for Hair Loss: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

What is platelet rich plasma therapy?

It is a process of using the healing power of your body's own blood platelets to halt hair loss and enable new hair growth. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a substance derived from your own blood that aids in hair restoration by promoting the growth of hair and skin cells at injection sites.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for both men and women who are experiencing recent hair loss.

See below for a peek at the 3-step, in-office procedure that is quick with no downtime — about 30 minutes for each treatment with three treatments recommended.


For more information, please see Dr. Hamori's page on PRP Therapy for Hair Loss.

CoolSculpting Receives FDA Clearance for Double Chin

Just before the holidays, Allergan announced that the CoolSculpting® treatment had become the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to be FDA-cleared for improved appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with submental fat, or "double chin."


CoolSculpting for double chin is already clinically proven to reduce fat up to 20 percent in the treated area after one treatment. An 18-week clinical study of CoolSculpting in submental fat treatment found that 77 percent of patients showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75 percent of patients reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.1

Dr. Hamori has been offering CoolSculpting treatments in the Skin Spa since 2011, when she was the first to bring this great new technology to Boston’s South Shore. Initially developed to permanently reduce stubborn belly fat from the mid section and “love handles,” some advances since then include “DualSculpting” — booking two CoolSculpting machines in one session for twice the results — as well as the development of the special CoolSculpting “Mini” applicator which makes the “double chin” treatments possible.

See our web page on CoolSculpting for more information on the latest news in non-surgical fat reduction, or call us to learn more at (781) 934-2200.

Some Pre-Wedding Cosmetic Enhancement Guidelines

6 Months before Wedding

With six months to go, Ultherapy® is a great option for those looking to tighten the face, neck and chest. This procedure has no-downtime, but it does take about six months to achieve the full benefit because collagen remodeling is gradual process. Similarly, Coolsculpting® requires approximately three months for frozen fat deposits to disappear. These procedures are popular among mothers of the bride and groom looking to freshen up their look for the wedding day.

1 or 2 Months before Wedding

Vivace™ Microneedling is a powerful new multi-benefit procedure that combines the resurfacing of traditional microneedling with the collagen and elastin strengthening of radiofrequency. In addition the device can emit blue light to treat acne or red light for skin tone correction. The treatment itself is comfortable with very minimal downtime. Think of this treatment as a kind of reset button for your skin, ideal for about a month or two before an event.

Shorter Time Frames

Another great option when time is short is the time-tested benefits of neuromodulators that help banish wrinkles and restore youthful volume. One of the most common injectables our patients choose when prepping for an event is Botox® to smooth forehead lines and create a slight lift to the brows. Injectable fillers are a quick way to plump lips and soften lines.

What Is an ExpertInjector?

Expert Injector billboard

Did you know that virtually any physician can purchase and administer injectables? That's more than 1 million doctors who are allowed to perform cosmetic injectables in the U.S. — and less than 3% who have appropriate qualifications. You can rely on the ExpertInjector™ designation, the only organization to have the endorsement of the prestigious American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Dermatological Surgery.

Beware of doctors practicing outside of their specialty, offering cosmetic injectables without proper training. This puts you at risk of mediocre or unexpected results, even deformity. Be sure to research your injector, and be aware of these red flags that may indicate a specific physician is not duly qualified.

Dr. Hamori is an ExpertInjector. Look for this title or seal indicating your doctor has specific training to offer facial fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra and more, and denerving agents such as Botox and Dysport.

Learn more at www.expertinjector.org.

Announcing Vivace! Microneedling Meets Radio Frequency


Vivace is an FDA-approved microneedling device that uses radio frequency (RF) technology and treatment serums for improved skin tone, texture and firmness. Patients typically seek micro needling to address:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Loose skin 
  • Scar reduction 
  • Spider veins 
  • Stretch marks 
  • Pore size.
Dr. Hamori is pleased to announce it as the newest addition to the microneedling offerings in the Skin Spa. Microneedling, which is also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that provides skin rejuvenation through production of collagen and elastin. 

What makes Vivace unique is the addition of the RF and its proprietary treatment serums.


The Vivace Experience™ includes:
  • Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream
  • The Vivace Microneedling RF with Corresponding Red or Blue LED
  • Optimal Treatment Serum: Boost Glide Serum
  • Enhance Weekly Mask
  • Soothe Recovery System (Channels Open 4 to 6 Hours)
  • Soothe Recovery Spray
  • Soothe Recovery Cleanser
  • Soothe Recovery Balm
Each treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to allow for topical numbing cream to take affect. Typically, three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, are required. Results can take up to three months to fully appear as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time.

Learn more at our Skin Spa microneedling page, or at vivaceexperience.com.

New radio frequency (RF) treatments now available to treat women's vaginal laxity, sexual dysfunction and stress incontinence

Dr. Hamori is pleased to offer another treatment for women looking to regain sexual and body confidence. Geneveve™ vaginal rejuvenation is a quick, comfortable, single session treatment that tightens vaginal tissue, boosts collagen and treats urinary stress incontinence.

Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery: Concepts, Classification and Techniques

Dr. Hamori's book is now available from Thieme Medical Publishers and amazon.com

Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery: Concepts, classification and techniques (by Christine A. Hamori, Paul E. Banwell and Red Alinsod) provides a comprehensive guidance for surgeons who perform genital cosmetic treatments for their female patients. It is an invaluable resource with 350 color photos and surgical illustrations, videos and more, with the objective of achieving the best possible outcomes.

From the Preface, Dr. Hamori writes…
"During the late 1990s, when I was fresh out of my plastic surgery residency, I met a young woman who requested a reduction of her labia minora. She felt uncomfortable in her clothes and was embarrassed to be intimate. My first thought was that she must have a body dysmorphic disorder… After I examined her, I understood her concern. Her labia minora were large and protrusive."

"I agreed to perform labiaplasty, and I fully disclosed to the patient that this would be the first time I had performed such a surgery. She consented, and I searched the literature for guidance. There only existed a small paragraph on the procedure in McCarthy’s Plastic Surgery, as well as a handful of case reports about severe hypertrophy of the labia."

"Fast forward [two decades], and now I have more than 400 labiaplasties under my belt (forgive the pun), driven in part by a shift toward nude pubic grooming. I was delighted when I was approached by the publisher to write a book about female cosmetic genital surgery. I feel that the field is finally approaching validation in the plastic surgery community."

Together with other plastic surgeons as well as gynecologists and urologists, Dr. Hamori along with co-authors Banwell and Alinsod, have created the authoritative text on female genital surgeries including: Labia minora reduction, labia major reduction, clitoral hood reduction, fat grafting augmentation of the labia majora, augmentation of the labia majora with dermal fillers, perineoplasty, vaginoplasty, hymenoplasty, and more. In addition to detailed color photos and surgical illustrations the book includes access to descriptive and instructive videos.

Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery is published by Thieme Medical Publishers, Inc. The book is available for purchase both at the publisher (receive a special 20% discount via this link) and on amazon.com.

A Noted Authority on Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Hamori is a board-certified, plastic surgeon recognized for her special expertise in female genital aesthetic surgery as well as non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. Her unique reputation in labial surgery brings patients from all over the world to her Boston-area practice.
