If you are getting ready to head back to campus, why not indulge in a cosmetic treatment first to enhance your appearance and boost your confidence for the new school year. At Dr. Andrews Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer cosmetic treatments for the face and body that will help you reach your aesthetic goals with minimal downtime. Check out these procedures to see if any of them will give you the results you are looking for.
Injectable treatments aren’t just for turning back the clock. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance areas of the face that need extra fullness and definition like the cheeks and lips. If your cheekbones just don’t give you the facial contour you want, injections of a product like Voluma can add the definition you desire. Fillers like Restylane can also be used in the lips to add fullness and definition for a sexier pout.
Injectable treatments take just a few minutes to perform and the results can be seen right away. There is no downtime after one of these procedures, although you may have some slight bruising or swelling around the injection sites for a day or two. Most dermal fillers will last 6-9 months before a touch up procedure is needed, so you may be good to go until spring break rolls around.
If your summer skin is looking dull and tired from too much fun in the sun, now is the time to refresh that complexion with a non-surgical treatment like a chemical peel. These treatments can be tailored to your specific needs and will address concerns like uneven skin tone, freckles and breakouts.
Chemical peels are designed to exfoliate the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead, dry skin cells. Superficial treatments do not involve any downtime and provide subtle results. Deeper treatments offer more dramatic results but also involve a recovery period afterward. Dr. Andrews will help you determine the best procedure for your specific concerns and desired results.
If you are nervous about heading back to campus because of isolated areas of fat you have not been able to get rid of through diet and exercise, there is a treatment for that as well. Liposuction is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that removes fat cells from those areas to create a smoother body contour. Common treatment areas include the midsection, hips and thighs.
Liposuction can be performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia. A narrow cannula is inserted into the fat deposits, which loosens fat cells and suctions them out of the body. Incisions used to insert the cannula are small and leave little or no visible scarring afterward. Most patients are able to return to their regular activities within one week after treatment. Results can be seen soon after the procedure and will be permanent if a healthy weight is maintained.
School is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to treat yourself to a cosmetic procedure before the semester gets into full swing. To learn more about these treatments, contact Dr. Andrews Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery at 855-338-0261.
