Scars sometimes act as a deterrent for cosmetic surgery. People fear that their skin will be left with raised lines or potted marks. This is completely understandable. The reason people get cosmetic surgery is to improve their appearance. Having noticeable scars left behind by the procedure defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?
If scars have kept you from attempting to improve your looks with one or more cosmetic techniques, there are now procedures that can help you look your best without noticeable scars.
Otherwise known as scarless cosmetic surgery, these procedures are available at a cosmetic surgical center near you.

Why Are Scarless Cosmetic Surgery Results Important?
Enhancing your appearance without dealing with noticeable scars is one of the best ways to show love to yourself. Through the use of one or more treatments like facelift, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck, you have the opportunity to regain your youthful shape and self-esteem.
How Does Scarless Cosmetic Surgery Work?
In the world of cosmetic surgery, there are different types of scars. Some procedures leave an inevitable scar, such as the tummy tuck. Removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal area causes trauma to the area, and a scar is the natural mending of that tissue as the surgical wound heals.
When we use the term “scarless,” unfortunately, we don’t mean the area will have zero scarring. Technology does not yet exist where we can cause trauma to the skin and not have it produce some sort of scar.
That being said, scarless techniques are minimally invasive, which means the scars they cause are very tiny. Once healed, the idea is to produce a scar that is hardly noticeable at all.
There is another element at play when you choose the area’s best cosmetic surgeon. Cosmetic surgeons are specially trained to reduce the appearance of scars. While the surgeon is performing the procedure, any incisions made are located within natural skin folds. This makes them nearly invisible, hence the term “scarless” to describe these amazing aesthetic enhancements.
What Types of Scarless Plastic Surgery are Available?
Cosmetic surgery clinics today offer a wide range of procedures that reduce the appearance of scars. It will leave the area looking more beautiful and natural.
A scarless facelift, otherwise referred to as a vertical facelift, helps to avoid the too tight or pulled-back look that accompanies more traditional facelift techniques. Without noticeable scarring behind the ears, you’ll be able to show your face confidently because the incisions are hidden and virtually invisible.
During the vertical facelift procedure, the skin of the face is separated from the underlying tissue. The underlying muscles are then elevated by vertically repositioning the facial muscles so that they achieve a more youthful look.
The benefits of having a facelift without scars extend to the neck and jaw, giving your neck improved contours and your jaw greater definition. These enhancements work together to add symmetry and turn back the clock on the way you look, all without unsightly scars.
The scarless arm lift solves the problem of saggy, flappy upper arms. Crude nicknames are sometimes given to these problem areas, such as bat wings or bingo wings. The idea is that the saggy skin continues to flap like a bat or wave whenever the person raises their hand to call “Bingo!” during the game of the same name.
The biggest issue women have with saggy upper arms is that the area is resistant to diet and exercise. No matter how hard you work, your upper arms will never return to the tone you may have enjoyed in your youth.
The traditional arm lift leaves an inevitable scar, like the tummy tuck. The procedure involves an extended incision that moves from the armpit to the elbow. The scar can be obvious with the regular arm lift, which is sometimes a deterrent for people looking to reduce upper arms sag.
The scarless arm lift offers an upper arm reduction without noticeable scars.
Technological advancements in radiofrequency assisted skin tightening now allow for controlled heat to the upper arm area. Controlled thermal fields allow for the coagulation of subcutaneous fat. The high-energy beam also heats the fibrous septa (connective tissue), and papillary dermis (inner skin layers), which causes the skin and tissue to retract. The effect is similar to how shrink-wrapping works, except it occurs on the skin of your upper arms.
The procedure offers instant and noticeable skin tightening with continued contraction over the course of twelve months, without scars, and with minimal downtime.
A traditional breast lift (mastopexy) is a cosmetic surgery aimed at rejuvenating breasts that have become droopy or saggy due to changes caused by age, genetics, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
During a trad breast lift, the surgeon positions the breasts higher on the chest. The surgery may also involve the rejuvenation, resizing, and repositioning of the areolas.
Unfortunately, the traditional breast lift can produce scarring. The incision made during the surgery starts at your nipple and extends to the undersides of each breast. This can sometimes produce a scar that is red and raised, but the scarring should heal and become more invisible with time.
A scarless breast lift produces no visible scars and will leave your breast tissue firmer and more youthful in appearance.
The no-scar breast lift uses a small cannula, which is a thin rod that is inserted through tiny incisions. The cannula produces a current under the skin’s surface, which then produces a thermal field that condenses the breast tissue.
The electrode-powered cannula also heats the fat cells and papillary dermis of the breast, which further adds tightness and suppleness to the treatment area.
Much like saggy skin on the upper arms, the upper thigh area tends to be resistant to healthy eating and aerobic exercise. The skin may appear saggy, dimpled, and thicker than you would prefer.
A traditional thigh lift can treat the area, providing more improved contours and tighter skin. However, there is typically a scar left behind. The cosmetic surgeon will attempt to hide scarring in the crease between the front of your upper thigh and the pubic area.
The scarless thigh lift is a minimally invasive procedure that works to smooth and tone the thigh area. The procedure is ideal for skin laxity issues, otherwise crudely referred to as “thunder thighs.”
The scarless thigh lift uses the technological wonder known as Renuvion, which uses J-Plasma to heat and constrict the skin on and around the upper thighs.
A small incision is made on the upper thighs. The incision itself is less than a centimeter in length and acts as an entry point for a tumescent solution, which is injected under the skin to numb the treatment area.
Next, the Renuvion handheld device is inserted into the opening, which releases an energy beam composed of a combination of helium gas and radiofrequency energy. Together, these energy sources make plasma energy, which simultaneously heats and cools the treatment tissue. The treatment affects skin collagen, causing it to constrict.
While the treatment produces noticeable tightness on the upper thigh area, over time, skin elasticity and skin laxity will dramatically improve. The changes continue to take effect for a full six to nine months following the scarless thigh lift procedure.
The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States. The surgery is aimed at the removal of excess skin and the tightening of lax tissue on and around the abdominal area. The abdominal muscles are also tightened and strengthened, which contributes to a flatter belly and enhanced abdominal curves.
The traditional tummy tuck requires a horizontal incision that runs just above your pubic area. While the scar tends to shrink and disappear over time, the scarring can be noticeable for a time following the traditional tummy tuck procedure.
Cosmetic surgeons are trained to place the abdominal incisions as low as possible, making any scarring that develops easier to hide with a bathing suit or underwear.
A scarless tummy tuck doesn’t require a strategic bikini or high-waisted underwear because the scars that occur are nearly invisible.

Disclaimer: The FDA has not approved the use of Renuvion for cosmetic use. The FDA has approved Renuvion for coagulation of tissue only. The specific advanced use of this new technology for skin tightening still remains investigational. The off-label use of Renuvion is only suitable for specific groups of patients with minimal skin laxity. Many devices initially have a general use approval and, with time, the expanded indications are approved to popularize usage. If you are a suitable candidate for Renuvion, Dr. Moein will discuss this information with you to ensure your understanding and comprehension before opting for the Renuvion procedure.
