Most Common and Popular Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery Treatments to Combat Aging:

* Dermal Fillers- Derma fillers are great to reduce wrinkles, lines and regain a more youthful appearance. Derma fillers are a good first step in anti-aging skin care treatments. Non-invasive, fast and easy for the patient, derma fillers are popular for people on the go. Choose between a variety of derma fillers. Derma fillers are all injectable materials used to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. The most popular of  Derma Prime Plus these are Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse. Treatments are done in the physician’s office and can be done during a person’s lunch hour with no downtime. Results typically last from six to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual patient.

* Fraxel – A more aggressive treatment than derma fillers, Fraxel laser treatment helps reverse or eliminate sun damage, acne scarring, age spots and other skin imperfections. Skin treatments using the Fraxel laser also significantly reducing pore size and greatly improve overall skin texture. Fraxel treatments are performed on small areas of skin, which then tighten as they heal. Fraxel is especially suited for treating delicate skin such as that around the eyes. Not as invasive as an eyelift, fraxel laser skin treatment can produce magnificent results, significantly improving the appearance around the most-important eyes. Skin is tighter, firmer, smoother.

* Facelift – Technically known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the face by removing excess skin, tightening the facial tissues, trimming fat and sculpting the face to make it look more youthful. A well-done facelift will look natural, not tight, scarred or “pulled.” A facelift can be done in conjunction with other procedures such as a brow lift, forehead lift or an eyelid tuck to complement the rejuvenation process. Facelifts are extremely popular cosmetic surgery choices, but they are not an overnight solution.

* Liposuction – A cosmetic surgery in which fat is carefully suctioned from the body. It is designed to provide better contouring of specific areas such as the abdomen or things. Liposuction is not designed to remove large amounts of fat and should not be seen as a solution for full-body weight loss. Typically, men will undergo liposuction on bellies, love handles, chest and chin. In women, liposuction is more commonly done on hips, love handles, thighs, calves and arms. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck, a breast reduction or a face or neck lift. Modern forms of ultrasonic and laser liposuction are designed to increase fat extraction and provide more accuracy to the sculpting process. Results for laser liposuction and ultrasonic laser lipo are very dependent on the individual surgeon’s skill. Dr. Brou has many happy body contouring patients.
