At Miami Skin Institute, Dr. Jegasothy and the entire staff are committed to helping clients look and feel their absolute best. With the safest, most modern methods and procedures available, Dr. Jegasothy is on a mission to make Miami and the world more beautiful.

A short look at the history of cosmetics reveals the depths people will mine for beauty. Even in the modern world there are dangers to many cosmetic procedures. There are numerous stories about treatments that went wrong. A theme in most of those stories is the unlicensed practitioner. We strongly recommend that dermatological treatments should be performed by a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Jegasothy.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-surgical, injectable treatment that was FDA-approved in 2015 to reduce double chins and other stubborn fat deposits around the jawline and neck area. It is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in your body. Deoxycholic acid breaks down and absorbs fat cells from the area of treatment. This article goes a little deeper into the science behind it. Es...

Drooping or wrinkled skin on the neck is caused by factors like aging, sun damage, or weight gain. Fortunately, there are treatments available to help reduce these signs of aging and restore a youthful look and feel to your neck.

Is this what you see when you look at your neck?

Of course not. Listen, regardless of what you see in the mirror, you’re beautiful.

Still, no one wants to feel like a turkey.

Maybe this is familiar.

Whether you call it your butt, bottom, bum, rump, tush, backside, booty, fanny, heinie or keister, no one wants to feel like their backside is their worst side. Well, good news! Miami Skin Institute has the expertise to help you feel proud of your posterior. While the improvement takes time, we can get you started now so that when Spring comes, you are sporting what the kids call a badunkadunk (which, we are told, is a good thing).

But Mine is Really Flat or Flabby or (Insert Bad Descriptor)

Everyone has their own circumstances. Our bodies are all rather incredible, even unique, organic machines. Although lifestyle and diet can both affect someone’s shape and size, genetics can, for many people, stand in the way of the look they want. Perhaps you come from a long line of flat butts and your chromosomes will never permit you to naturally have the kind of butt that you dream about. Or perhaps time and gravity have cruelly made your once beautiful bum less round and full.

No one can say for sure if the scar on his face made Tony Montoya into the notorious killer and drug lord. Certainly, the distinct mark of trauma on the left side of his face did not help. Scars are part of living, and we accumulate them throughout life. Whether caused by a surgical procedure or traumatic incident, scars are rarely our proudest features (that one memorable scene from Jaws aside).

We don’t remove scars at Miami Skin Institute. Scar removal (also called scar revision) is performed by surgeons who cut out the scar tissue and suture the skin back together, hopefully making a much less noticeable line. There are a few potential issues with this method of scar removal. Besides, one needn’t be a philosopher to notice the inherent contradiction in using surgery to remove a scar…Fortunately, modern medical advances provide new methods to eliminate the unsightly evidence of surgeries and trauma.
