Procedures that do not require surgical operations are becoming a more sought-after option for individuals seeking plastic surgery. Also known as non-invasive treatments, the non-surgical alternatives help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, discoloration, and uneven skin tone.
The non-invasive alternatives reduce the risk of scars, have decreased risk of complications, have very minimal pain, and require very little recovery time. If you are considering plastic surgery, let’s look at a few non-surgical options.
The fat grafting procedure is minimally intrusive and involves the transfer of fats from other body parts that have excess fat into other areas of the body.
Some of the most common areas where the procedure is applied include the breasts, face, and buttocks. The fat is usually removed from the hips, belly, and thighs.
Fat grafting can help reduce hand wrinkles and repair facial scars. It can also increase the size of the buttocks, be used in breast reconstruction, and create higher cheekbones.
Botox entails using Botulinum injections to the face to relax the facial muscles. Although the procedure is not permanent and needs to be repeated every six months, it helps smooth out any wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead and around the eyes, nose, and mouth the face.
For the procedure, you must meet with Dr. Sarraga ahead of time. He will ensure you understand any risks or side effects and discuss the instructions you need to follow after the injections.
If you have cellulite or stubborn fat in a specific area, CoolSculpting is a great alternative to more invasive procedures.
Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), the procedure does not require any surgical procedure or needles. It utilizes a CoolSculpting machine which uses controlled cooling technology to freeze the fat cells. The body then absorbs the cells.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin lifting procedure that can tighten your skin without the need for surgery. It uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin deep within the skin. This results in a natural-looking skin lift and skin that is tighter and firmer.
For face or neck treatment, the procedure typically lasts about 60-90 minutes and while you may feel a burst of energy, the procedure is completely painless.
Laser resurfacing is used to improve the skin’s overall appearance and treats any facial flaws you may have. The procedure removes skin layers by using light and heat energy and vaporizing it. It also helps in the stimulation of collagen fiber growth, which in turn results in tighter skin.
If you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful look, this could be the best option for you.
The benefits of non-invasive treatments make it a go-to option for those considering cosmetic surgeries. The procedures are effective and safe to cater to your aesthetic concerns.
