Trading the Quick Fix for More Long-Lasting Results

|

mirror-woman.jpgIf you're looking to smooth away wrinkles, sculpt your waistline, or trim your thighs, you have plenty of options - both surgical and non-surgical.

For years, the non-surgical "quick fix" was gaining popularity, but as this article in Allure reveals, doctors are now seeing a marked shift. More patients are demanding long-lasting results, and opting for traditional plastic surgery.

Facial rejuvenation is a good example. Non-surgical procedures like Botox injections can be great for temporarily wiping away facial lines. But inevitably those wrinkles will return and more Botox will be needed. We're finding that some patients would rather have a facelift, even though the upfront costs are higher and they'll have to plan for some recovery time. But these patients prefer a long-lasting fix, rather than repeated costly trips to office for more and more Botox.

For more insight into the non-surgical vs surgical debate, check out the article in Allure. If you'd like to discuss your options with one of our six surgeons, make an appointment today for a consultation.


Belly Button Repair

|

We're talking belly buttons, and even if you used to have an innie, there are several reasons your belly button may have changed.

Weight loss, pregnancy, an umbilical hernia, and even some laparoscopic surgeries can lead to a stretched out navel with an undefined shape, surrounded by loose skin.

If your belly button is keeping you from sporting a bikini or crop top this summer, we can help.

One option is a tummy tuck. For many women, as pregnancy stretches their bellies, the muscles of the abdomen must flatten and separate to make room. This can lead to an umbilical hernia. With a tummy tuck, your surgeon can reposition and reshape the belly button, while also removing loose skin and tightening the abdominal muscles.

If you don't need a tummy tuck but just want to fix an "outie," you might be a good candidate for umbilicoplasty. This surgical procedure addresses only the skin surrounding the belly button, and can sometimes be done through the belly button with no scar.

If you just need a little bit of tightening around your belly button, you might consider fractional laser resurfacing. This non-surgical procedure uses a laser to stimulate new collagen production and can tighten the skin.

If you're not sure which procedure is best for you, make a consultation with one of our physicians. We can go over all the options, and have you back in a bikini this summer.
