Hot Summer Trends in Plastic Surgery

There is so much to talk about! Unless you can come into the office every couple of months to visit with us, it can be really hard to keep up with the treatments and procedures we are loving lately! Make sure to touch base with Cynthia or Beth and let them know if you need to update your email address on file here in the office, and be sure to “like” our Facebook page, as that does make it easier for us to let you know what you want to know! I will do my best here to catch you up on some of the newest things we think you should know about…

After great success with UltraShape, we are now offering a spot in a clinical trial to 10 lucky patients to study the effects of a higher powered version called “UltraShape Power”. Call the office for more details if you are interested or know someone who is. To review, UltraShape is focused, nonthermal ultrasound permanent fat reduction, and as such is nonpainful and requires no recovery time, with measurement reductions and results seen within 2 weeks of the 1st treatment (a 3 treatment series is recommended). We can combine UltraShape with VelaShape III for skin tightening and added results in the same treatment session. There is no (and I repeat no) other fat reduction technology on the market that can permanently reduce as much fat as UltraShape, and all (I repeat all) competitive technology either requires more treatments be done, or smaller areas to be done, and take longer to see lesser (and I repeat lesser) results. Scientific fact.

Profound continues to please patients who desire facial and neck skin tightening, added dermal volume, surface textural improvement, and the added ability now (with the longer needles available) to truly contour the jowl and neck fat. All in a single treatment. In this surgeon’s opinion, there is no better alternative to a surgical lift or lipo of the neck. Profound can be performed in a segmental fashion (upper face and forehead = “Profound Browlift”), or just the lower face and neck (“Profound Necklift”), or the entire face and neck can be treated (“Injectable Profound Facelift”). With the availablity of the longer needle cartridge, we can also offer a new cellulite treatment of nonfacial areas (VelaShape III and VaserShape also excel at treating cellulite). Profound treatments are frequently combined with fractional laser treatments, like the CO2RE.

We are introducing a new skin care line from Biopelle that is best used with medical-grade skin micro-rollers for better absorption and penetration of the growth factors in the Tensage Serum. This growth factor product is a serum for at-home use but is also applied during the mocroneedling Profound procedure. Call the office for more information about how to begin this new revolutionary skin care program. Your skin will thank you for it!

The CO2RE Intima Vaginal Rejuvenation clinical trial has closed, but due to incredible early results for patients suffering from stress urinary symptoms after childbirth or natural aging, another study may ensue to look specifically at the improvement of urinary leakage. We are currently treating non-study patients and seeing great results in both the post-partum as well as menopausal age group woman. There is a cosmetic improvement in the appearance of the external genitalia (tightening of lax tissue, treatment of dyschromia, and increased labial symmetry) as well as true functional improvement (improved sexual gratification, correction of dryness through restored lubrication, correction of itching, better vaginal canal elasticity, and either vaginal canal tightening or looseness – whichever is needed). Call the office for more information on how to restore your sense of feminine well-being. Results can be experienced within days of the 1st treatment. An initial 3-treatment series and an annual single maintenance treatment is recommended for long-lasting results.

Many of the above new procedures constitute the new “Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover”, and we are leading the way. In fact, I have been invited to Vegas to present our “Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover” Case Study patients at The Aesthetic Show this weekend, because there is much technology that DOESN’T work. I think it is important to continue to educate other doctors about what DOES work, whether they are plastic surgeons or not, so I remain as active in the multi-specialty arena as I do in my own professional societies of ASAPS and ASPS. As a surgeon, I always wish to explore the best nonsurgical options for my patients…those who don’t desire surgery as well as those who wish to maintain surgical results nonsurgically.

Who better to sift through the volumes of nonsense research and less worthwhile options than a surgeon?

This is just a brief update, and we love to also use email and social media to keep up with you, so please take a minute to call the office and update your best contact info, “like” us on FB, and check our website for future updates and blog postings. In fact, give me ideas on topics you would like to see a blog about…I’ll get right to those first!

Happy Summer!
