Plastic Surgery Innovations: Smart Lipo and Liquid Face Lifts

Andrew | November 28, 2012 | Posted in Facelift

The United States leads the world in cosmetic surgery, and New York is firmly in the driving seat. Plastic surgery in NYC is more prevalent than ever before, offering a host of cutting-edge procedures that feature less down time along with fantastic results.

With the rapidly improving technology at the disposal of surgeons, patients can benefit from a range of non-invasive procedures. Fast, relatively pain-free and with a minimal recovery period, patients can roll back a decade of ageing in barely an afternoon of real time.

Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr Thomas Loeb, uses the latest techniques to help reverse the signs of ageing, including safe injectables like Botox, wrinkle fillers and lasers.  Fractora is another innovation in facial rejuvenation that uses radio waves to stimulate collagen growth while eliminating lines, acne scars, redness and pigment irregularities. Dr. Loeb provides Fractora, photo facials and fractional laser resurfacing for those seeking alternatives to more invasive plastic surgery in NYC.

Smart Lipo in New York City

Traditional liposuction, though effective, usually entails significant blood loss, swelling and bruising. SmartLipo uses laser technology to break down fat cells, allowing a smaller cannula for treatment. The hour-long procedure targets specific areas of fat, tightens the skin and encourages collagen production. The benefits of SmartLipo include a shorter recovery time, minimal discomfort, and less swelling and bruising.

Liquid face lift in New York

A liquid face lift restores lost volume by filling, smoothing and re-contouring the face through injectable dermal fillers such as Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane or Sculptra. A non-surgical liquid face lift can be used to address the entire face, or target certain areas for a more youthful look. Lines, creases, wrinkles and folds are smoothed out, and the procedure is often combined with either Botox or Dysport for enhanced results.

Radiesse – one of the most popular dermal fillers – is made of bio-compatible materials that help amplify areas of the face that have lost fullness over the years. The results of a liquid face lift performed with Radiesse can last up to two years. Other dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm usually require touch ups within 6 months.
