Liposuction has long been, and continues to be, one of the most popular of all aesthetic procedures. You may remember considerable negative press surrounding the procedure when it was first developed. Although complications were rare, they were widely publicized. Yet the popularity of liposuction remained strong, as the general public came to realize how simple and effective this technique is.
With years of clinical research and refinement, there have been dramatic improvements in liposuction techniques. Today, this is the number one cosmetic surgical procedure, with a stellar safety record and amazing results.
Liposuction revolutionized body reshaping by providing a solution to stubborn bulges. It is not a replacement for healthy diet and exercise. There are certain areas that retain pockets of unwanted fat despite your weight loss efforts. Excessive dieting can pose a risk to your health, yet still not remove those last bulges.
We enjoy doing liposuction because our patients are delighted with the results. You’ll appreciate it because it is a quick and effective way to remove those bulges with minimal recovery time. Call The New York Aesthetic Consultants to set up an appointment with nationally renowned dermatologist Dr. Ron Shelton, to discuss the right liposuction treatment for you.
The store shelves are flooded with creams, salves, and oils designed to remove scars. Unfortunately, most of them don’t work. They may improve the health of your skin, but they won’t make the scar tissue go away. In fact, it is impossible to eliminate a scar. Fortunately, there are several options for improving the appearance of scarring, sometimes to the point that it is no longer noticeable.
There are several types of scarring. For example:
Hypertrophic (raised) scars – Surgical excision and revision can greatly improve raised scars. The shape can be changed to make them less noticeable, and more easily disguised with cosmetics. Cortisone injections or laser treatments can significantly reduce some raised scars. Scar reducing creams can achieve some improvement, if you choose the right product.
Hyper-pigmented (dark colored) scars – These scars can benefit from chemical peels, which even out skin tone and promote the regeneration of healthy cells.
Atrophic (sunken) scars – Fraxel® laser treatment is often the best choice. It also improves the overall texture and appearance of skin.
While complete elimination is not possible by any means, most scars can be improved dramatically with the right treatment. Call The New York Aesthetic Consultants to set up an appointment with nationally renowned dermatologist Dr. Ron Shelton, to discuss the right treatment to treat your scars.
