The field of surgery has seen some major technological advances during the last twenty years. Surgeons in all specialties have been working towards new ways to reduce the invasive nature of surgical procedures. The term ”Minimally Invasive Surgery” has been used to describe major surgeries which are now being performed through incisions which are no larger than one centimeter. The rise of minimally invasive surgery has led to smaller scars, better cosmetic results, decreased pain and faster recovery times when compared to traditional surgery.
For many plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures, this minimally invasive approach has resulted in treatments using no surgery at all. Fat reduction, skin tightening, face lifting, wrinkle removal, and lip enhancement are just a few of the treatments which can help you slow down the signs of aging without even making an incision.
There are many benefits to non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Unlike surgery, there is little to no downtime associated with any of these treatments. In fact, most of them can be done during your lunch hour. The non-invasive nature of these procedures takes away the anxiety that may be associated with surgery and anesthesia. Not to mention the costs, which are significantly less than surgery.
Although the results may not be as dramatic as traditional plastic surgery procedures, non-surgical cosmetic treatments can make a noticeable difference in your appearance that looks natural without looking like you have had work done. In many cases those who have had previous plastic surgery are more satisfied with the results of their nonsurgical cosmetic treatments than they were with their surgical procedures.
Some of the state of the art nonsurgical cosmetic treatments that we offer include:
- Ultherapy ultrasound focused skin tightening which is used to treat wrinkles and tighten skin of the face, neck, brow, belly, thighs, arms, and more.
- CoolSculpting, a revolutionary procedure which uses cooling technology to get rid of fat around the stomach, waist, and thighs.
- Juvederm Dermal Filler which smooths out wrinkles and folds around the smile lines, underneath the eyes, and is also used to provide natural lip enhancement.
The great thing about all of these treatments is that they have been cleared by the FDA and proven to work in several clinical studies. However, these non-surgical cosmetic procedures may not be right for everyone. That’s why it’s important to have your concerns addressed by a physician who is experiences in providing non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Although you may not be a candidate for one treatment, there may be an alternative that can address your specific concerns.
