Top Cosmetic Procedures For Busy Patients

February 6, 2015 Posted in: Huntington, NY Plastic Surgery, Skin Procedures
We all live in busy times, with most people juggling hectic schedules and many responsibilities. But that doesn’t mean your appearance has to suffer. There are a number of treatments that can rejuvenate and refresh a patient’s appearance with little to no downtime. Here are some of the most popular:
  • Liposuction: New techniques for liposuction allow this procedure to be minimally invasive and require a minimal recovery period. Liposuction can sculpt and firm targeted areas of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, that have pockets of stubborn fat. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia, and usually takes only a few hours to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area. Since the incisions are small, no stitches are required. Most patients return to work and other regular activities in a few days.
  • Lip augmentation: Those who desire fuller lips have several surgical and non-surgical options to do so. Depending on the procedure performed, the results of the augmentation will be temporary or permanent. Injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Hylaform® and Artecoll® can provide noticeable results that last several months. These are administered in just minutes on an outpatient basis, and in some cases, results can be maintained with simple touch-up injections.
  • Dermal fillers: Fillers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® and JUVEDERM® are a popular choice for rejuvenation for patients pressed for time. These treatments can smooth lines and wrinkles and prevent deeper lines from forming, while also restoring volume and a full, youthful appearance to the face. Filler injections are performed in minutes and require no downtime. Typical results last anywhere from four to nine months, depending on the material used.
