Top Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures to Bring Out Your Best Look This Season

Are you unhappy with the visible signs of aging, but unsure what to do about it? Don’t let your spirit fall with the leaves this season! There are many minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to help you. And there are even non-invasive procedures available to help combat and resolve a number of issues that may concern you.

According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 16,349,031 minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in 2019. They included submental fullness under the chin to stubborn and unwanted cellulite. Below is a detailed list of the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to help you look and feel your best. They are all with little to no downtime!

Getting Rid of a Double Chin Without Surgery

We’ve all been there. Reminiscing as we stare at old photos, wishing we’d stuck our chin up and out to relieve the submental fat that’s settled beneath our face. In a study on the impact of submental fat (double chin) on one’s appearance and self-confidence, Allergan found that nearly half of people find it bothering. 55% of women and 40% of men are affected by this area. Therefore, there’s no wonder why effective treatments have grown in popularity.

Kybella for Double Chin Treatment

Chin Treatment - Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedure

Kybella is an FDA approved, injectable treatment that can be administered over several sessions to help you achieve the chiseled and toned face you desire. Each treatment can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes and will lead to permanent results. Kybella can also dissolve the submental fullness beneath your chin. It will be producing these permanent results within 4-6 weeks after your final treatment.

With this minimally invasive, low-cost procedure, you can have that chiseled jawline you’re used to seeing in the movies. But maybe, you’re not worried about your chin. Given the number of filters and Facetune used so regularly these days, it’s easy to wish your skin had that same supple, natural glow. Luckily, there’s a fix for that as well.

Minimally Invasive Skin Treatments

From age spots to wrinkles, there are many reasons men and women are insecure about their skin. While a full facelift (Rhytidectomy) may have been typical in the past, there are many treatments now that allow for younger-looking skin, without having to plan for surgery.

A popular treatment is one that involves “resurfacing” of the skin. The doctors will apply different techniques to shed the top layer of epidermis on your face, making way for fresh, new skin to come to the surface. While this sounds intense, there are several procedures today that are effective and require little downtime.

Renuvion for Younger Looking Skin

Renuvion for Younger Looking Skin

Renuvion is a non-surgical procedure geared towards rejuvenating the skin on your face, neck, and body by tightening and resurfacing the skin. This resurfacing will fade the appearance of typical insecurities such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, and Melasma. This procedure works similarly to lasering, where the doctors apply plasma energy to the skin to produce the desired results.

In just a single afternoon treatment you can be on your way to firmer, younger-looking skin. We know that facial sagging and dark spots can be a troublesome issue, especially after summer sun exposure. Renuvion is a treatment that can help you resolve a wide array of bothersome skin issues.

A major bonus to Renuvion is that you only need a single treatment to achieve results. Typical recovery time averages from 2-3 weeks after the procedure. You may experience some irritation and swelling, followed by steadily improving results over several months after the initial treatment.

Co2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Unlike Renuvion, which uses sound energy, Co2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing uses an ablative laser to resurface small areas of the skin. While results from this procedure are achieved over the course of multiple quick sessions, downtime is significantly less than Renuvion. You may experience mild sunburn symptoms for about three days, but that’s about it.

This minimally-invasive procedure uses a Carbon Dioxide laser to achieve resurfacing results designed to fade dark spots, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. This specific laser is the most powerful in its class. We can use it to achieve youthful skin on the face, neck, and hands. The Co2 laser is also efficient in removing sunspots and precancerous tumors often found on the skin.

Skin tightening, resurfacing, and submental fat removal are effective. They are sought-after facial treatments, but some people may feel they need more than these treatments have to offer. The advanced world of cosmetic procedures has given us a non-surgical facelift that will effectively resolve a number of major skin issues.

La Silhouette Instalift Procedure

La Silhouette Instalift Procedure

It is now possible to achieve the contoured and firm look of a surgical facelift, without major surgery. La Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to achieve younger-looking skin by targeting signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, loss of collagen and fullness, and sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, and neck.

This procedure requires no incisions, leaves no scarring, and has no downtime. Doctors can perform this quick and effective skin treatment in under an hour in their office. You’ll be home that very day, only to return a few times per year to maintain your results with injectables. The beauty of this beauty treatment lies in the ability to achieve a newly contoured face and youthful appearance in one session, with little effect on your busy schedule.

Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures for the Body

While signs of facial aging are a stressor for men and women alike, stubborn body issues are on the forefront of people’s minds as well. From cellulite to age spots, your body is not immune to the signs of aging. These minimally invasive cosmetic procedures can have you feeling more confident in your body’s appearance. It will lead to increased serotonin for a variety of reasons.

Velashape for Cellulite Reduction

This non-invasive procedure can achieve targeted results in effectively removing the stubborn dimples that never seem to go away, even with exercise. Velashape will feel similar to a massage. It similarly uses a vacuum treatment. It also uses massage rollers to prepare the skin for the light energy used to target the cellulite.

The performance time for Velashape is under an hour with no downtime and often immediate results. While you may need a series of treatments depending on your specific circumstance, results will gradually improve over time with cellulite being severely diminished or eliminated over the course of three months.

Velashape for Body Contouring

Velashape for Body Contouring

Who doesn’t want an improved body shape, without the struggle of targeted and oftentimes inefficient exercises? Velashape for body contouring is a non-invasive procedure that uses the same technology and similar processes as other cellulite reduction procedures. With Velashape body contouring, you can also reduce fullness in areas of your body that have been stubborn in the past.

Similar to the cellulite reduction procedure, Velashape body contouring requires no downtime. Therefore, doctors can perform it in one afternoon with results achieved after six treatments. Like many body-altering procedures, we can enhance and maintain the results with appropriate diet and exercise.

How Renuvion Rejuvenates Your Skin Compared to Laser Treatments

Aging will one day visit us all.

When that happens, your age will begin to show on your face, and particularly

on your neck. Your arms and thighs may begin to sag, and your belly may become mushier than you would like.

Innovations in cosmetic surgery have now made it possible to turn back the years with cutting-edge skin rejuvenation. One technology that is proving popular with aesthetic surgery patients everywhere is Renuvion. Otherwise known as J-Plasma, this new skin-tightening technology can make you look years younger while giving your face any other treatment areas a youthful glow.

In years past, laser cosmetic surgery was the technology everyone hailed as the latest skin-rejuvenating wonder. So, let us compare the two.

The following pits Renuvion against lasers to determine which one is most successful and cost-effective at giving you age-defying skin.

What is Renuvion or J-Plasma?

J-Plasma is an amazing technology straight out of a sci-fi movie. Scientists figured out that if you take radiofrequency energy and pass through it a concentrated stream of helium energy, a helium plasma energy results. Often described as the fourth state of matter (following liquid, solid, and gas), the helium plasma emitted by the hand-held Renuvion device heats-up your skin and the underlying tissue.

As the stream of J-Plasma is emitted to the treatment area by your cosmetic surgeon, the tissue becomes heated under the energy stream, yet the surrounding tissues are left undisturbed. This precision of the targeted area allows your surgeon to get to smaller, hard-to-reach areas like the regions around the eyes, and those around the cheeks and jowls.

stimulates new skin

As the skin heats up, a tightening effect takes place, which erases fine lines and wrinkles, and gives your favorite features a taut appearance. J-Plasma simultaneously exfoliates, removes imperfections, and stimulates new skin growth. When the Renuvion device is used on the lower layers of skin, the result is the production of fresh collagen-rich tissue, which gives the skin a lighter, more youthful tone.

How is Renuvion Different Than Laser Resurfacing Treatments?

Laser resurfacing, or CO2 fractional skin resurfacing, used to be the go-to procedure for issues like skin-discoloration, minor facial wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and the procedure is still in use today.

Like Renuvion, lasers heat the tissues at the treatment area, which creates the intended tightening effect.

The biggest difference between the two is the precision that is allowed by the Renuvion hand-held applicator. Lasers are used to treat general areas and the outer layers of skin could be affected. Renuvion is far more precise. Not to mention, the new and amazing technology is associated with faster recovery times when compared to similar laser treatments.

The Battle: J-Plasma Over Laser Cosmetics

Now that you know more about J-Plasma and laser cosmetics technology, let us weigh one procedure against the other.

Are You a Good Candidate?

You are considered a good candidate for Renuvion or laser cosmetics if you are in good general health and have realistic outcomes for the results. The first step is to schedule an appointment with a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Even though Renuvion is considered a non-surgical procedure in nature, a cosmetic surgeon has the expertise to apply both Renuvion and lasers to achieve the intended youth-defying effects.

A cosmetic surgeon will require a consultation before you can be allowed to schedule for Renuvion or lasers, for the sake of your health and safety.

What Can J-Plasma and Lasers Be Used to Correct?

Woman on the beach

We can use renuvion to correct the following skin defects.

  •  Minor acne scars
  •  Moderate signs of aging (fine lines and mild wrinkles)
  •  Moderate sun damage (dark spots, pigment changes, and freckles)
  •  Crow’s feet around the eyes
  •  Fine lines around the mouth
  •  Moderate signs of loose skin on the body

We can also use J-Plasma on the:

  •  Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  •  Bra area
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  •  Thighs (helps with cellulite!)
  •  Flanks
  • Knees

Lasers can be used on the same parts of the body, but there is a major difference.

The CO2 lasers used in cosmetic surgery ablate or heat up the tissues on and around the treatment area. The lasers target water in the soft tissue, vaporizing it, and removing it entirely.

Renuvion works differently. The stream of energy heats the tissues without vaporization taking place. This helps to channel the heat-induced injury to the necessary depths to stimulate the most collagen production. This is where the amazing acne and scar fighting effects take place.

Lasers are also safer on lighter toned skin. J-Plasma, on the other hand, can be used safely on both light and dark skin.

Are There Risks to J-Plasma and Laser Technology?

There are risks to all procedures, including non-surgical procedures like Renuvion.

With Renuvion, complications are rare. You could experience unintended burns (either deep ones or superficial), visible scarring, permanent nerve injury, pain, and unacceptable cosmetic results, just to name a few. Choosing a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon can further decrease your chances of experiencing any negative side effects of the skin-rejuvenating technique.

With laser cosmetics, you risk infection and swelling at the treatment area. Remember, lasers completely remove the outer layer of skin. This means it is critical that you follow post-operative care instructions as provided by your cosmetic surgeon. Use bacterial soap and try not to touch the treatment area, keeping it covered and treated adequately to reduce infection risks and reduce discomfort and swelling.

With lasers, an adult should remain by your side or at least within calling range for the first 24-hours after surgery. You should restrict activities the day of surgery and for several days afterward.

As you can see, the downtime for lasers is much longer and more difficult than that of Renuvion.

Is There Any Downtime with Renuvion?

You may need a few days of downtime to recover after your J-Plasma treatment. This is time your body is taking to heal from the treatments, building the most collagen where you need it most. You should be back to your normal activities after a week.

Renuvion cusecs younger skin

As you can see, Renuvion offers a much easier recovery period than lasers, letting you get back to your regular routine with fresher, younger skin.

How Are the Renuvion and Laser Procedures Performed?

Renuvion is performed in the surgeon’s office using local, general anesthesia.

The procedure begins with tiny incisions that are placed in areas of the body where they can easily be hidden. These incision sites act as entry points for the tip of the Renuvion device. These openings are strategically placed so that your cosmetic surgeon can access the necessary tissues under the skin around the treatment areas.

Renuvion takes around thirty-minutes or less to complete, and you can go straight home after the procedure.

With ablative laser resurfacing, the cosmetic surgeon will direct the intense beam of light energy at the treatment location. The laser burns through the outer layer of skin and the underlying layer, known as the dermis and epidermis. This heating of both layers is when collagen production begins to take place, resulting in better skin texture and tone.

The entire laser procedure can take between thirty-minutes and two-hours, depending on the size of the treatment area, and how many areas you wish to treat. You can also go home following laser surgery, but you should always have someone drive you in case you recover slowly from anesthesia.

What Results Can You Expect from J-Plasma vs. Lasers?

Whether you intended to erase fine lines or eliminate your acne scars, you should see immediate results with every Renuvion treatment. Your skin will look and feel tighter and firmer. The texture will appear more vibrant with a healthy glow.

Results with every Renuvion treatment

The beauty of Renuvion is that the results continue to show even months after leaving the cosmetic surgical center. This longer lasting effect is caused by your body continuing to produce collagen and restructure the treatment area over time, making it look younger than ever the more time passes.

How long do the effects last? Well, the J-Plasma technology was only developed four years ago, and the original test subjects are still showing significant results. The results are predicted to last five years or longer when backed up by a healthy skin care routine.

When it comes to instant results, Renuvion beats laser resurfacing by a mile. Some aesthetic patients may see immediate results at the treatment areas, but most will not see the intended results for up to a year afterward. The results can last for years.

Of course, both treatments cannot stop the effects of aging, but Renuvion gives you instant gratification and results that keep on giving. Though the results can be long-lasting, if you are looking for immediacy, laser skin tightening may not be right for you.

How Much Does Renuvion Cost?

A single Renuvion treatment costs between $3,000 and $15,000. The amount you pay will depend on the experience level of the surgeon you choose, the location of the practice, and the extent of your skin rejuvenating treatment.

How Much is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is likely to cost just under $2,000 per treatment. This fee does not include other surgical expenses that may be associated with the procedure.

While Renuvion may be a bit more expensive, the technology is still new. The fees could decrease over time. But many patients are happy to pay the higher fees if it means less downtime and more amazing skin-healing effects!

Conclusion

Both Renuvion and laser resurfacing can give you younger looking skin while erasing wrinkles and defects like acne scarring. The more difficult downtime and risk of complications are now pushing more cosmetic patients to trying Renuvion. A single half-hour treatment could give you better, more youthful looking skin.

Renuvion Can Turn Back the Clock on Your Face & Appearance – The Newest Cosmetic Enhancement!

Renuvion is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that offers magical skin rejuvenation, including tightening and firming. Though the non-surgical technique can be used on many parts of your body, such as the arms, legs, tummy, buttocks, and chest, it is popular for patients to choose this skin-tightening procedure for their face. Doing so can take years off your appearance, letting your vibrant, youthful energy shine through.

What is Renuvion & How Does it Work?

The Renuvion procedure seeks to correct the natural signs of aging. Over time, our skin begins to lose valuable nutrients and moisture. It can develop fine lines and wrinkles, and this can make a person look years beyond their chronological age. Sun damage, environmental factors, and genetics also play a part in how old we look. Renuvion pulls the skin taut and gives it a glow, similar to a facelift without the scars.

Referred to as J-Plasma technology, the technique works by way of a handheld device that emits a powerful and highly focused stream of energy. The stream consists of cold Helium plasma that is passed through radiofrequency energy causing controlled subdermal coagulation. The result is a precise beam that heats the tissues under the skin, which tightens and rejuvenates the skin, without harming the surrounding tissues. The result on your appearance is younger and more radiant skin.

There are two general categories of use for the face, subdermal (under the skin) and superficial skin resurfacing. The subdermal facial rejuvenation is great for the lower face and neck to tighten the laxity in the skin and provide skin tightening without the downtime and cost of a neck lift surgery.

The truly amazing aspect of Renuvion procedure is its extreme accuracy. The micro-injuries to each layer of skin is designed to stimulate rejuvenation without destroying tissue. While the effects of J-Plasma are powerful enough to eradicate multiple skin defects, actually ablating the skin at the cellular level, the pin-point precision of the beam keeps the surrounding tissues safe, completely eliminating the risk of unintended tissue trauma.

A Revolutionary Cosmetic Skin-Enhancing Procedure!

Renuvion - A Revolutionary Cosmetic Skin-Enhancing Procedure

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is the first technology of its kind. Sure, we have lasers that can assist with rejuvenating the face without the need for a traditional facelift. Some experts have even likened Renuvion to laser skin resurfacing. The difference is Renuvion tends to provide a dramatic effect in cosmetic patients with wrinkled or rough-textured skin. Another major difference is that Renuvion uses cold helium passed through sound energy to accomplish astonishing effects as opposed to tissue ablating lasers.

As for what results to expect, it is not uncommon for Renuvion to help you look up to ten years younger, and for only a fraction of the cost (and risk!) of a traditional facelift.

How Do They Perform Renuvion Procedure?

Before you can enjoy the amazing benefits of Renuvion, you first must schedule a consultation with a qualified practitioner. Both cosmetic and plastic surgeons can offer the non-invasive technique, but since the procedure is rather new on the scene, only a few advertise the cosmetic technique at this time.

To find a surgeon that offers Renuvion, look for online reviews for qualified cosmetic surgeons and schedule a virtual and, eventually, sit-down consultation.

During your consultation, you will be assessed for surgery. Your medical history will be examined, current health will be assessed, and various tests performed to determine if you have the health and skin type to be a good candidate for surgery.

If you are deemed healthy and in need of Renuvion treatments, your procedure date will be set.

What if your doctor says Renuvion is not for you? If it is deemed that Renuvion is inappropriate for your needs, your doctor may recommend an alternate procedure, such as a facelift or facial fillers.

If you are cleared for surgery, the date of your procedure will be set.

On the day of the procedure, you will be given general anesthesia before the J-Plasma device is used to rejuvenate your facial skin.

The J-Plasma device looks like a wand and delivers the stream of energy at the tip, either to the skin’s surface or to your entire face. Your doctor can even choose to apply Renuvion to pre-selected areas, such as under the eyes or around the mouth.

The skin can be tightened and refreshed virtually anywhere around the face, including on the lower face and neck. We can also treat jowls using Renuvion technology.

What to Expect Following the Renuvion Procedure?

After undergoing Renuvion, you may notice redness, itchiness, and minor swelling at and around the treatment area. Expect any side effects you do encounter to subside in approximately ten days, though it can take two or more weeks to recover from the procedure. Everyone is different and no two people heal the same way. Talk to your cosmetic surgeon about what to expect following your Renuvion treatment.

The Effects of Renuvion on Your Face

J Plasma lifts and tightens your facial skin. The procedure can even improve skin irregularities like redness or pigmentation problems that even a facelift cannot repair. These are only some of the amazing benefits you can expect. Here are a few more.

Renuvion Helps with Sun Damaged Skin

The use of sunscreen was not always so prevalent. Getting lots of sun used to be viewed as good for you. Today, we better understand the skin damage caused by spending too many lazy days in the sun. By the time we reach middle age, all those sunburns and sun damage we suffered as kids begin catching up with us. Over time, our skin can develop sunspots and age spots. Renuvion can erase these sun damaged effects to leave your skin fresh and glowing!

Renuvion Can Erase Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Saggy Skin

Our skin type, genetics, and the environment can all affect the way our skin ages. The effects start as fine lines around the eyes and mouth and soon progress to wrinkles on the face and neck. Your skin can even begin to sag around the cheeks and neck. Renuvion procedure can tighten your skin, bringing youth back to your appearance.

Rid Your Face of Freckles & Moles

Skin discoloration and pigmentation issues can be a thing of the past with Renuvion. You can also erase those pesky freckles, moles, and other defects. Face the world with a cleaner face, courtesy of J-Plasma Renuvion technology.

How Long Do Renuvion Results Last?

The amazing results of Renuvion are immediately noticeable but get better over time. For example, you may notice fewer wrinkles or the complete loss of wrinkles on your face following the procedure. This amazing effect is caused by skin tightening, which makes the skin firmer to the touch. The results do not stop there. For the next six to nine months, you will continue noticing improvements to your facial skin. That makes the skin rejuvenating technology the gift that keeps on giving, and one you can give to yourself by scheduling a consultation with a Renuvion specialist near you.

Slimming Your Framing Features with Cosmetic Surgery

Just like there are clothes and colors that can help make you look skinnier, there are cosmetic surgeries that target specific areas of your body, to create a slimmer, more fit appearance. The three main areas that you can target to achieve this skinnier profile is the arms, legs, and face. If you are curious and want more information regarding cosmetic surgery and arm liposuction, contact Moein Surgical Arts to talk with our staff about preparation and prerequisites. Schedule an appointment today to have a consultation with Dr. Moein to begin your journey to a slimmer body.

Arms

By reducing the size and sagginess of your arms, you can help make your whole body look slimmer. There are two major cosmetic surgeries that you can undergo to achieve this: an arm lift and an arm liposuction. The arm lift is the more common of the two because after weight loss or aging, most people’s skin will become loose and saggy. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, will help tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that shapes the upper arm, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Ultimately, it takes the excess skin and fat that cannot be eradicated using workout routines and healthy eating and tightens it up.

A liposuction of fat in the arm is utilized more infrequently and usually will need to be accompanied with an arm lift because the skin may become saggy after the liposuction procedure. Arm liposuction is a great option in certain cases where smaller amounts of fat need to be removed, and for patients with good skin quality so the elasticity is not destroyed. Contact Moein Surgical Arts today to discuss whether you are a good candidate for arm liposuction, and information on any other procedures that would benefit you.

Legs

One of the most prominent places that people gain weight is in their upper legs, and is a hard to combat part of aging. Even those living a healthy and active lifestyle can be susceptible to this weight gain. Slimming your thighs is a great way to make your whole body look more trim. A thigh lift is the most useful and common procedure to help make your legs look young and slender. This is achieved by removing excess skin and fat from the upper legs to make a defined look that will compliment any outfit you decide to wear. This is a more intense and invasive procedure, so if you are looking for something with a little less recovery time, there are a few non-surgical procedures used in the industry as well. Fat can be removed without making any incisions by using radio frequencies or freezing the fat. Permanent hair removal on your legs can help make them look more in shape, as well as utilizing cellulite reduction techniques.

Face

The shape of your face can really frame your whole body, and there is scientific evidence to prove that certain shaped faces are stereotypically perceived as more attractive. Some of the invasive procedures include reducing the size and shape of your jaw, cheekbones, and lower face. Many people also have a double chin, which can be reduced to create a slimmer neck area. These all involve removal of the facial structure to create a look that you desire, and fat removal in the face can be utilized to have the same effect. However, if these invasive procedures scare you, another option is to inject Botox to weaken the muscles and reduce the tissue, so there are many options, both surgical and non-surgical to choose from.

Arm Liposuction

By strategically focusing on certain areas, you can make your entire body look slimmer. Moein Surgical Arts can point you in the right direction and help you pick the surgical procedures that will benefit your unique body most.

Best Cosmetic Procedures to Fight Facial Aging

As we age, gravity begins to take its toll and things begin to sag and wrinkle. If a full-face lift isn’t a challenge you want to undertake, there are other cosmetic procedures you can investigate, so you can avoid Father Time for as long as possible. You can have procedures done on your cheeks, jaw line and neck. Many people opt for upper eyelid surgery to give themselves a more youthful look. Read on to learn more about this procedure and where to have the best experience for upper eyelid surgery.

If you constantly hear the phrase, “You look tired,” when you’ve had plenty of rest, you might be a viable candidate for an eyelid lift. This type of procedure gives you that rested and naturally youthful appearance you’ve been looking for.

Each patient is different, so no procedure is the same but those considering an eyelid lift are wanting to address sagging skin around the eyes, smooth out wrinkles and reduce puffiness. We’ve all heard the saying, “the eyes are the window to the soul,” so when our eyes appear to sag or droop, people might assume we are angry or sad even when we’re not.

Having upper eyelid surgery can help diminish wrinkles and sagging skin to give you a more relaxed and youthful look. Upper eyelid surgery will remove the excess skin and involves an incision that is made in the natural crease above the eye. Dr. Moein will then remove excess skin and fat or adjust the muscles that surround your eye to give you the results you are looking for.

Eyelid surgery is typically done as an outpatient procedure and can last anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours. Some people decide to have a brow lift or facelift done at the same time, so this can lengthen the procedure time. Recovery is usually easy for most patients and there is some visible bruising and swelling for the first few days. Experts advise using cold compresses and sleeping with your head elevated for the first few days post-surgery.

Patients shouldn’t begin driving again until cleared by their physician but most return to work and normal life about two weeks after an eyelid lift. There are a few side effects post-surgery. Your eyes will get tired more quickly for the first few weeks after surgery so let them rest when they need to. It’s also important to protect your eyes from severe weather, particularly sun and wind, so investing in some protective eyewear is key. Patients should also avoid lifting, straining or bending down to pick up heavy objects for about a month after surgery. Leading a healthy lifestyle and using sunscreen are important steps in keeping your results long lasting.

The Right Medical Team and a Realistic Budget

Considering the cost of any cosmetic procedure is also a key process in coming to the right decision. It’s important to do your homework and understand the benefits and set backs of all your options. A qualified plastic surgeon will help you take all this information into consideration and talk you through all your options.

At Moein Surgical Arts, we have all the solutions you need to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Babak Moein, MD, FACS, is one of the few surgeons in the country who is dually-trained in minimally-invasive surgery and cosmetic body contouring surgery. This makes Dr. Moein qualified to help you improve your appearance with a range of cosmetic options.

Dr. Moein’s extensive training allows him to assess your needs during your initial consultation. After a short examination, and after determining that you are a good candidate for cosmetic surgery, Dr. Moein can provide you with a customized treatment plan. This plan could include cosmetic surgeries like a facelift or liposuction or non-cosmetic options like skin-tightening Renuvion.
