tighten the face and neck using ultrasound energy. It also can improve lines and wrinkles on the chest. This nonsurgical treatment targets the deep layers of tissue normally adjusted during a facelift or neck lift, stimulating collagen production to achieve a slimmer, much more youthful appearance. Ultherapy can be used to treat sagging skin on the cheeks and neck while leaving the surface of the skin intact.

Do you ever wish that your face had a more even skin tone? You should try microdermabrasion! This minimally-invasive treatment rejuvenates the skin’s appearance, treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. During the procedure, a gently stream of tiny particles exfoliate the outer layer of skin, gently exfoliates your skin, giving your complexion a smoother, brighter appearance that is more even in color.

5 Plastic Surgery Myths

Plastic Surgery Myths

With 17.5 million* total cosmetic procedures performed in 2017, it’s no surprise that there is a ton of misinformation circulating on the internet about plastic surgery. Here are the top 5 plastic surgery myths, along with the actual truth behind them:

MYTH 1 – PLASTIC SURGERY AND COSMETIC SURGERY ARE THE SAME

Plastic surgery involves a repair or enhancement, so almost any procedure has a cosmetic element. However, plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are not the same thing. While there is no nationally recognized standardization of training for cosmetic surgeons, a plastic surgeon must receive board certification in plastic surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. A physician must complete five years in surgical training at an accredited hospital, with at least two of those years dedicated to plastic surgery.

MYTH 2 – LIPOSUCTION IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT

While liposuction removes fat from the body, it is not meant as a weight-loss tool. The procedure is designed to remove localized areas of fat from trouble spots that have not responded well to traditional diet and exercise. Weight-loss through liposuction is site-specific. The best liposuction candidate is someone at a fairly stable healthy weight, with areas of exercise resistant fatty deposits and who prefers a slightly different body shape.

MYTH 3 – PLASTIC SURGERY IS JUST FOR WOMEN

Plastic surgery is increasing in popularity among males. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, men accounted for 13% of all cosmetic surgical procedures and 8% of all minimally-invasive procedures in 2017**. Common procedures amongst men include gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction), facelift, rhinoplasty, liposuction and eyelid surgery. Common treatments also include Botox and fillers such as Juvederm to enhance their appearance.

MYTH 4 – PLASTIC SURGERY IS ONLY FOR THE RICH AND/OR FAMOUS

Do you think of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when you hear the term plastic surgery? While it can increase a woman’s self-confidence by giving her the body she’s always dreamed of, it can also help babies born with severe birth defects, or give a breast cancer survivor a new outlook on life. Not every patient of Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, PC wears designer labels or is adorned in diamonds. Most patients are just regular people seeking increased confidence through an enhanced appearance! We offer a number of financing options [link] and, in some cases, insurance may even cover the cost.

MYTH 5 – FAT CAN APPEAR IN OTHER AREAS AFTER LIPOSUCTION

If fat reappears after liposuction, it is not due to the procedure! During a liposuction procedure, fat cells are removed from the body. If a patient gains weight, fat can reappear in other places. A continued plan of exercise and healthy eating to prevent weight gain is key to long-lasting results. In some cases, a patient might perceive increased fat because after the procedure, the perception of their body is out of proportion. For example, a woman might feel as if her arms look heavier after having liposuction on her thighs.

Cosmetic Procedures to Help Lose Those Winter Pounds

Procedures to lose Winter Pounds

It’s very common to overindulge over the holidays, which is why one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight. Even with proper diet and exercise starting on January 1st, there are specific body areas that will always be resistant to change without extra help. Cosmetic surgery is really best for addressing things that your trainer can’t such as after-pregnancy pouch, loose skin, stubborn fat areas and breast size/volume.

Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, P.C. can help contour your body in 2019 with invasive and noninvasive treatments:

Liposuction

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that removes localized areas of fat from the body through a small tube called a cannula. If a patient is in good overall health and maintains a healthy lifestyle, but has one or more problem areas with unresponsive fat deposits, they are a candidate. Liposuction is performed through a tumescent technique, and may also include the assistance of ultrasound imaging or laser energy. Unlike a diet and exercise plan, liposuction can contour areas of the body where fat is difficult to lose, and is a permanent solution to excess fat deposits in tough-to-reach body areas.

VASERlipo®

VASER is a one-of-a-kind precision body-sculpting system, which provides surgeons with advanced technology to create dramatic contouring compared to traditional liposuction. It is unique in its ability to target fat while leaving other important tissues intact. With VASER, treat multiple areas in a single procedure with less pain, swelling and downtime. See immediate and precise sculpting results!

CoolSculpting

Fat cells hate the cold. It’s science! Fat cells will freeze at higher temperatures than their surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology enables us to precisely target fat cells beneath the skin, and cool them down to temperatures that initiate their natural death. Diet and exercise can help diminish the appearance of fat cells, but they don’t permanently remove them. CoolSculpting freezes off fat cells for good, enhancing your diet plan and serving as great encouragement for continuing that healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting results are long-term and with no downtime!

Tummy Tuck

A flat and well-toned stomach is something many strive for through exercise and weight control. When these methods fail, a Tummy Tuck can achieve those goals! Abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is firmer and smoother.

Mommy Makeover

Get back to your pre-pregnancy body with a Mommy Makeover. This package combines some of our more popular procedures into one and can include tummy tuck, liposuction and/or breast enhancement. By having multiple procedures at a time, patients only have to recover once, instead of two or three separate times.

With the long winter ahead of us, now is perfect time to plan for summer! Trading in sweaters for bikinis in 2019 will seem discouraging when carrying around a few extra holiday pounds! One of the most optimal times for plastic surgery is in the late winter and early spring. Be beach-ready long before summer, call Suffolk Plastic Surgeons P.C. now at 631-364-0333 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
