Questions & Answers

Questions & Answers Liposuction

Will I need to stay in Hospital to have Liposuction?

No: The majority of people can have their liposuction procedure performed in our office surgical suite. Most patients can go home immediately after the procedure. However if you are visiting the clinic from out of town, we recommend that you stay the night and visit the clinic first thing in the morning for a check up before going on your way.

How long do I need off work?

Liposculpture recovery is rapid, and some people go back to work next day. Most people return to work within a few days, although a week off is certainly more pleasant.

Is Liposculpture painful?

Older methods of liposuction surgery were associated with pain postoperatively. General anesthesia was always needed. The pain is much reduced with the new tumescent method of liposculpture, particularly using the micro cannula technique. The procedure can now be performed under local anesthesia usually without even any sedation. The postoperative pain is usually mild to moderate.

Botox Cosmetic

BOTOX? Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

One 10-minute treatment, few tiny injections, and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months! Visit the Botox FAQ for more information.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a synthetic injectable material known as “poly-L-lactic acid.” Poly-L-lactic acid is biocompatible (a material that does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body).

Restylane

Restylane is a crystal-clear, biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) gel, which is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous natural enhancement of the skin. Restylane is used for smoothing out wrinkles; enhancing lips and getting rid of frown and worry lines on the face.

Restylane is commonly used to get rid of worry lines on the forehead, Periorbital lines or crows feet around the eyes, perioral lines or smokers lips, and to change or straighten smile lines, and nasolabial folds. Restylane is also used to plump the lips and define the border between the lips and face (vermilion border). Visit the Restylane Page for more information.

Now with the advances in sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and laser you can get rid of varicose veins.
