Choosing your surgeon
Choosing your Boston plastic surgeon is the most important decision you can make about your surgery.

Consider this:
BOARD CERTIFICATION - not all doctors performing cosmetic surgery are plastic surgeons. Always ask if your surgeon is specifically certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Arthur Shektman, MD - a Boston, Massachusetts plastic surgeon - is fully certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. OFFICE ACCREDITATION - If you are having your surgery done in an office setting, find out if the office is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations or a similar official agency or by the State where you live. In Massachusetts office accreditation is voluntary and we are proud to be one of the few fully accredited practices in Boston.
Our dedication to rigorous patient safety standards is recognized by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations - the same agency that accredits hospitals and surgical centers - with their Gold Seal of Approval Award for our Boston, Massachusetts location.
Your consultation
Your consultation will take place in our Boston office in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. No time limit is placed on the consult, so you do not have to feel rushed. It is a good idea to bring a list of questions you want to ask Dr. Shektman, so that all of your concerns can be addressed. You should also bring a picture I.D. with you. This will help us protect you from identity fraud.
There is a $100 consultation fee at our Boston center. This fee will be applied towards your surgery fee when the procedure is scheduled. A consultation time slot must be secured with a valid credit card. The fee will be charged only when you come in for your appointment and can be paid either with the credit card on file, check or cash. Please, be sure to bring the credit card you used to reserve your consultation slot with you. If you can not keep your scheduled appointment for any reason, we ask that you notify us by phone as soon as possible.
 However, if you fail to come in for your scheduled appointment and fail to notify the office of the cancellation ahead of time, a full consultation fee will be charged.

Breast lift

If you're considering a breast lift in Boston...

Before and After Photos Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing and gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag, but they do not have to stay that way. A breast lift can go a long way towards restoring the youthful breast contours women want. If fullness is also an issue, breast implants can be considered along with the lift.

Some patients, especially those with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging, may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions.

Breast reduction

If you're considering breast reduction in Boston...

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight-from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders. And unusually large breasts can make a woman-or a teenage girl-feel extremely self-conscious.

Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.

If you're considering breast reduction in Boston, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure- when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Please be sure to ask your Boston doctor if there is anything about your plastic surgery procedure you don't understand.

If you're considering liposuction in Boston...

Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. During the past decade, liposuction, which is also known as "lipoplasty" or "suction lipectomy," has benefited from several new refinements.

Today, a number of new techniques are helping many plastic surgeons to provide selected patients with more precise results and quicker recovery times. Although no type of liposuction is a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to traditional weight-loss methods.

If you're considering liposuction in Boston, this page will give you a basic understanding of this plastic surgery procedure, when it can help, how it is performed and how you might look and feel after surgery. It won't answer all of your questions, but will help you to discuss your surgery with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. Please ask your Boston doctor if there is anything about your cosmetic surgery procedure you don't understand.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

If you're considering abdominoplasty in Boston, this will give you a basic understanding of this plastic surgery procedure-when it can help you, how it is performed and what results are possible.

 Boston face and neck lift


Before and After face lift Photos

Our face is our most visible feature. Through it we convey to the world what and how we feel. Facial ageing includes a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue and wrinkles. These visible signs of ageing greatly impact how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. The loss of youthful contours of the midface, jaw line and neck may cause us to appear sad, angry, or tired even when we are full of energy and excited about life.

If you are bothered by the signs of ageing in your face, then a facelift in our Boston center may right for you. In general, face lifting tightens sagging facial muscles and skin to restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

Modern facelifting techniques make the procedure safer than ever. In our Boston office, the patients have a choice of anesthesia. Facelifts can be performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia, reducing your operative time and office stay, as well as providing for more flexible scheduling. For those who want deeper sedation, intravenous anesthesia is always available with our Board certified anesthesiologists. As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can't stop this aging process. What it can do is "set back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. The goal is always to give you the most natural result possible.

If you're considering a facelift in Boston, this page will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask your surgeon about anything you don't understand. A facelift can make you look younger and fresher and it may enhance your self- confidence in the process. When a facelift is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor.


Most facelifts are performed under local anesthesia, combined with a sedative to make you drowsy. You'll be awake but relaxed, and your face will be insensitive to pain. There isn't usually significant discomfort after surgery; if there is, it can be lessened with the pain medication prescribed by your surgeon.  Some numbness of the skin is quite normal; it will disappear in a few weeks or months.

Most of your stitches are absorbable and will dissolve on their own. You should be up and about in a day or two, but plan on taking it easy for the first week after surgery. Your surgeon will give more specific guidelines for gradually resuming your normal activities.

At the beginning, your face may look and feel rather strange.

By the second week, you'll look and feel much better.

Having a facelift doesn't stop the clock. But in another sense, the effects of even one facelift are lasting; years later, you'll continue to look better than if you'd never had a facelift at all.

Additional information on Boston eyelid lift and blepharoplasty

Cosmetic eyelid surgery ( blepharoplasty )

Before and After eyelid PhotosIf you're considering a eyelid lift...

The eyes are our most intriguing and revealing facial feature. They draw attention and convey expression. Through them we see others and others see us. Often, our emotional and physical wellbeing is reflected in the eyes. Unfortunately, signs of ageing can greatly impact the appearance of the eyes.

If you are bothered by upper eyelids with excess, drooping skin, or by the puffy, baggy lower eyelids - all of which can make you look angry, sad, or tired even when you are not - then cosmetic eyelid surgery in our Boston center may be right for you. In general, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) corrects the redundant skin and/or fat in the upper and lower eyelids for a more youthful and energetic appearance.

If you're considering a eyelid lift...
Eyelid surgery is a procedure to remove fat – usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won't remove crow's feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift.

If you're considering eyelid surgery, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask your surgeon about anything you don't understand.

When eyelid surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's instructions both before and after surgery.
Planning your surgery
The initial consultation with your surgeon is very important. The surgeon will need your complete medical history, so check your own records ahead of time and be ready to provide this information. Be sure to inform your surgeon if you have any allergies; if you're taking any vitamins, medications (prescription or over-the-counter), or other drugs; and if you smoke.

You should also provide any relevant information from your ophthalmologist or the record of your most recent eye exam. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, be sure to bring them along.

Your surgeon will explain the techniques and anesthesia he or she will use, the type of facility where the surgery will be performed, and the risks and costs involved.

Don't hesitate to ask your doctor any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.

Where your surgery will be performed
Cosmetic surgeries are performed at the state-of-the-art operating suite at Wellesley Cosmetic Surgery.

Types of anesthesia
Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia – which numbs the area around your eyes – along with oral sedatives.
The surgery
Blepharoplasty usually takes one to one and a half hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.
Getting back to normal
You should be able to read or watch television after two or three days. However, you won't be able to wear contact lenses for about a week and even then they may feel uncomfortable for a while.

Most people feel ready to go out in public (and back to work) in a week . By then, depending on your rate of healing and your doctor's instructions, you'll probably be able to wear makeup to hide the bruising that remains.

Your surgeon will probably tell you to keep your activities to a minimum for three to five days, and to avoid more strenuous activities for about two weeks.

Your new look
Healing is a gradual process, and your scars may remain slightly pink for a short while after surgery. Eventually, though, they'll fade to a thin, nearly invisible white line.

On the other hand, the positive results of your eyelid surgery-the more alert and youthful look-will last for years. For many people, these results are permanent.

The nose is the most prominent aspect of the face. It defines balance and harmony amongst facial features. When the nose is out of proportion with the rest of the face, it affects self-image and confidence.

If you are bothered by the appearance of your nose, cosmetic rhinoplasty in our Boston center may be right for you. In general, rhinoplasty improves the appearance and proportions of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence.

Sculptra boston massachusetts


If you are considering Sculptra in Boston....

Sculptra is a new and very distinct filler which works by restoring lost collagen in the skin. Collagen is a substance in the skin which gives it elasticity and thickness, the two critical qualities of a youthful skin. As we age, the collagen layer becomes thinner, leading to the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. Sculptra forces the body to restore the collager layer. It is not an overnight miracle, nor a quick fix, but it is long lasting. Even though different people respond to Sculptra differently, the results can last up to two years. Usually, two or three treatments are necessary six weeks apart for full effect to take place.

Xeomin, Botox or Dysport

If you are considering Xeomin, Botox or Dysport treatments in Boston....

The cosmetic forms of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product names Xeomin,Dysport or BOTOX« COSMETIC, are a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck.

The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX« COSMETIC and Xeomin is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

Recently, Botox and Xeomin have been used to reduce the pain in temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) associated with nighttime teeth grinding (bruxism).

Taking a dietary supplement of organic zinc and the enzyme phytase four days before receiving botulinum toxin injections made the toxin more effective in 93 percent of patients tested in a recent study at The Methodist Hospital in Houston. This research has resulted in a patent-pending dietary supplement combining zinc and phytase (trademarked as ZYTAZE) to be available to patients as early as this month. Forty-one of the 44 patients who took the oral supplements prior to botulinum toxin injections (Botox®, Dysport®, or Myobloc®) showed improved results.

Juvederm, Radiesse and fat injections

If you're considering fat injections/ fillers in Boston...

As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow's feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.

Soft-tissue fillers, such as Juvederm, Radiesse or your own fat, can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin, these fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Juvederm, Radiesse and fat may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a laser treatment, or a recontouring procedure, such as a facelift.

If you're considering a facial-rejuvenation treatment with Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse or fat in Boston, this brochure will give you a basic understanding of the procedure - when injectables can help, how the procedure is performed, and what results you can expect. It may not answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask your doctor if there is anything about the procedure you don't understand.
