Dr. Hamori Addresses BIA-ALCL Related to Breast Implants

Dr. Hamori recently addressed concerns over BIA-ALCL in this video.



"ALCL (Anaplastic large cell lymphoma) is a very rare disease, found in approximately one in 30,000 patients. So, while there is a lot of hype about it right now, and while I think it is important that women are aware of it, it is also creating a lot of panic for a disease that is quite uncommon.

First of all, it affects only people who have textured implants — implants that have a little pebbling on the outside. The theory is that after seven or eight years contamination can occur, some over reactive immune response occurs, a fluid film forms and that is the beginning of the disease.

The good news is that there is a symptom. So at that time when the disease is just developing, women usually have pain and swelling. And that is the important thing for patients to know.

It's difficult because if you hear that a devise is recalled, it seems to you in your head that they should be removed from your body, but right now, they are not recommending that. They are recommending that if you are happy with your result, see your plastic surgeon every year, and know the potential symptoms. If you have any swelling, see your doctor."

This post should not replace the advice of your physician. Please speak with your breast surgeon for your best course of treatment.

CoolPeel: Erase Summer Skin Damage

Announcing CoolPeel at Christine Hamori Cosmetic Surgery + Skin Spa

As seen in South Shore Magazine

In case you missed it, we are highlighting our new gentle laser treatment, CoolPeel, that was featured in the Autumn issue of South Shore Magazine. Dr. Hamori is the first to offer this laser treatment on Boston's South Shore.

What is CoolPeel?
CoolPeel is a CO2 laser — the gold standard in treating sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and the like. It is delivered by the SmartXide Tetra Fractional CO2 Laser from DEKA.

What makes CoolPeel different?
Traditional laser treatments are effective but can be accompanied by considerable downtime and risk while the skin heals. The Tetra CO2 laser provides more control and versatility making it the most advanced CO2 available.

What types of skin complaints can it treat?
Tetra fractional laser treatments can be customized and optimized for individual skin types. Dr. Hamori is most excited about the CoolPeel feature that safely and comfortably delivers visible results with minimal downtime. And it can be combined with the popular Vivace microneedling treatment to resurface and tighten the skin — a perfect solution for the dreaded "chicken neck."

How long do treatments take?
CoolPeel treatments take only 10 to 20 minutes with very minimal discomfort — you may feel mild needling feeling. The treatment will instantly leave your skin smoother and refreshed. Your skin will be pink (like a mild sunburn) for a day or two, requiring a moisturizer. Depending on the level of sun damage, flaking may be expected for a few days.

When do I see results?
Within the first week, collagen production is stimulated, dramatic skin surfacing has begun and younger looking skin will continue to reveal itself.

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.

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.
