There are a myriad of procedures that will get you in top shape for the holidays. You can finally melt away those unwanted extra pounds with body contouring treatments that are definitely worth considering. The first is SmartLipo MPX, which is a new technology to remove fat cells and tighten skin. It is an extremely effective procedure for body contouring of the chin, arms, abdomen, bra roll”, “love handles” and legs. The cosmetic surgical industry is calling this new technology a Revolution in laser body sculpting, due to the minimal bruising, downtime and less trauma to the area. The most significant advancement for this new technology is the actual skin tightening effect while removing the fat cells! The added benefits may have an overall improvement in reducing or decreasing dimpling and cellulite. The perfect candidate is in good health and near to their normal body weight. SmartLipo MPX is often an excellent complement to conventional liposuction. The bottom line for patients is an improved body that is smaller in inches, has less fat and tighter skin. Most patients can return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after three weeks. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months. This procedure is a perfect holiday tune up!
Another excellent new treatment is VelaShape a non-invasive technology for cellulite reduction. More than 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their weight or size, are affected by cellulite. VelaShape is effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite and re-contouring the body. Patients feel a deep soothing heat in the targeted area and most see remarkable improvement in the appearance of the skin on their thighs, buttocks, stomach and waist.
An added procedure to get you ready for holiday get together is a minimally invasive facelift. As with the rest of the body, the appearance of the face and neck changes with age. Muscle tone is lost, causing a flabby or droopy appearance. The jowls may begin to sag, contributing to a double chin. The nose lengthens slightly and may look more prominent. There is an increase in the number, size, and color of pigmented spots on the face. The eyebrows and eyelashes lose pigment and turn gray. The skin around the eyelids becomes loose and wrinkled, often making a crows feet pattern. The eye socket loses some of its fat pads, making the eyes look sunken. Droopy upper eyelids can occasionally contribute to limitations in vision. The fat pad that lies below the eye starts to thin over time, creating a sunken look to the area, and the lower eyelid tends to droop, creating a “tear trough.” The light that hits this area gives the illusion of a dark circle.
Since the face continually changes with age, the benefits of having undergone surgery will ensure that you will look younger than your chronological age. Aging is not limited to the surface of the skin. So, if “40 is the new 30”, and “50 is the new 40”, then what do we do about all this depressing aging? A well-done facelift, which will not change your looks or make you look like a different person. It will not make you look fake….a well done facelift will take years off your appearance and have people saying things like…”wow, you look great!”…but they wont be sure why/how you suddenly look so good.
If youre not ready for surgery, using a combination of the latest injectable and highly advanced laser options can freshen up your face and give you a youthful appearance. The newest laser treatment available today is called Trinity, which is a three in one non-invasive laser skin rejuvenation system. Trinity, will reverse sun damage, remove wrinkles and tighten skin, all being done at the same time. Combining Botox, Juvederme and Restylane injections to your skin rejuvenation program will replace lost volume, restore youthful contours and erase wrinkles. Years can be taken off of the face in a matter of minutes!
In order to keep the effects of your skin rejuvenation program optimized, one of the most exciting products is my new skin care line Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., F.A.C.Ss Cosmetic Surgeon in a Jar. This brand new skin care line is one of the most advanced anti-aging skin care product lines on the market. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles and lifts the face.
This is one of the best times of the year to have that breast procedure youve been dreaming of. Whether it be the newest type of breast augmentation, breast lift or any other breast procedure, I strive to obtain the most natural breasts. I design an individual procedure to match the patients own specific antoamy. One of the hottest new implants available is the silicon memory gel. This implant creates an even more natural result both ascetically and by touch.
So, if you are ready to take their breath away this holiday, there are so many great options available for you.
