"Positive Experience - This will be my second time having breast augmentation done by Dr. Aiello. I first went to him over 15 years ago and now its time to have them replaced with a modified lift. My first experience was great and I've been very happy my breast augmentation but after three kids and 15+ years later its time for a redo. I wouldn't go to anyone else but Dr. Aiello :)"- J. / RealSelf / Apr 22, 2019
"I am a long time customer of Dr. Aiello’s because I truly believe he cares about his patients. He has a wonderful bedside manner and his staff is caring and attentive. My first time at his office was in the mid-90s and even as I have moved to different places around the country, I have found my way back to him. I’m returning to have my implants replaced after 30 years to treat myself for my 50th birthday and there’s no one else I could trust more for this."- S.M. / Yelp / Dec 12, 2022
"The entire staff at Ocean Plastic Surgery is professional, knowledgeable, & great at what they do! I had a breast lift with an augmentation. From the moment I walked in the office for my consultation, everyone was so welcoming and informative. During my consultation, I was asked what my expectations were and concerns or questions I may have. All were answered and I was never rushed. During my consultation, I was told what to expect on the big day and how the operation would be performed. For my pre-op visit & on the day of my operation, the doctor met with me and told me again exactly how he was going to go about the operation. On the day of everything went smoothly, the doctor, nurse, and patient consultant were spot on with how my operation and recovery would go. I did everything as outlined in the pre-op and post op instructions and absolutely everything went seemingly. I would and will definitely recommend Ocean Plastic Surgery to anyone looking for a great place to have a cosmetic surgery procedure done."- D.D. / Yelp / Nov 21, 2022
"Dr. Aiello and his staff are amazing. Dr. Aiello did a great aug for me in 2014 and I went back to him in 2022 for a tummy tuck because I knew I’d be in great hands. Highly recommend Dr. Aiello, he’s the best around!"- S.R. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2022
"I wanted to come back to say I love my results ! My surgery went great and Katie is the best ! Such a great nurse ! She made me feel very comfortable."- V.T. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2022
Who is a Candidate for a Hydrafacial?
HydraFacials are meant to be safe and effective for patients of all ages and skin types. The process will be customized to fit your unique needs and goals. Skin concerns that may be treated by a HydraFacial include:
- Sun or brown spots
- Chronic or infrequent acne outbreaks
- Decreased skin firmness or elasticity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily or greasy skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
How does a Hydrafacial work?
HydraFacials can be performed in our office in around 30 minutes. The process will begin with an initial consultation to select the best approach to the HydraFacial. As soon as your plan is complete, you will be invited to lie back in a treatment room as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, extraction of the pores, moisturization, a nourishing serum, and protection for your skin. These steps are customized to the needs of your complexion by using the best cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and any other needed products. Your HydraFacial may be further customized by adding another skin treatment available at our office.
What can I Expect after a Hydrafacial?
If you want, you will be able to put on cosmetics following your HydraFacial treatment to reduce mild redness before you get back to your daily routine. You will likely have visible skin improvements shortly following your treatment, with full results visible in several days. To sustain your newly improved skin tone, our team recommends getting these treatments once a month. During your initial consultation, we can schedule ongoing treatments and talk about creating a home skincare routine to keep your complexion healthy in between treatments.
frequently asked questions
What are the results like of a HydraFacial?
An excellent treatment to include in your routine facial care regime, a HydraFacial takes the facial process one step further by cleaning out your pores and offering a deeper level of cleansing. This innovative treatment option can help your skin look and feel its best for improved tone and texture. Based on your skin condition, our aesthetic team can add additional elements into the facial to treat various skin irregularities.
How often should I receive a HydraFacial?
The benefit of a HydraFacial is that it can be performed as often as you feel your skin needs it. The majority of our patients receive HydraFacials a couple of months apart and schedule traditional facials in between. Within your initial consultation at our facility, we will talk with you about how often you should receive a HydraFacial in order to preserve your desired results.
Is a HydraFacial better than a chemical peel?
Both HydraFacial and chemical peel treatments are effective and serve different purposes. While a chemical peel treats a variety of skin irregularities, it may also require more recovery time and cannot be performed as often. However, a HydraFacial can be provided more often and become a regular part of your skin care routine.
