“Saw Dr. Motykie again today and I am so Happy I chose him for my reconstructive surgery! I know he will give me the result I’ve been seeking for over 20 years! He’s very kind and compassionate, he listens, and he truly cares. As much as I’m not looking forward to another surgery, I am looking forward to this one with Dr. Motykie. Sandi and Diana are truly amazing as well!!! Very compassionate team!” – Theodora M.

 

Photo of Gigi B.“Dr. Motykie is gifted.  He is professional, listens, and despite being young and on TV he really is an amazingly gifted surgeon.  He has done two different surgical procedures on me-one was a fix on a botched job from 6 years ago and another cosmetic procedure on my face.  He knows what he is doing.

I do not know of anyone who can hold a candle to Dr. Motykie.  I hope to continue my “maintenance” for years to come with this excellent surgeon.  Don’t go anywhere else-this is the place for excellent work and service.” – Gigi B.

FDA Grants Approval to Botox for Crow’s Feet Treatment

botox injectionDr. Gary Motykie is an experienced plastic surgeon providing state of the art procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Dr. Motykie is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas can receive treatment for cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical procedures.

Patients who are looking for non-surgical treatments such as Botox have some outstanding news from the FDA. The FDA has finally approved Botox® for the cosmetic treatment of crow’s feet around the eyes. As a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Motykie provides Botox treatment to his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles, if they are keen to reduce frown lines or crow’s feet from the face without undergoing a facelift surgery.

Why Choose Botox?

People that are unhappy with signs of aging on their face, but are either unable or unwilling to go for a surgery, may choose Botox as an effective non-surgical alternative. The treatment involves almost no downtime, no general anesthesia and no risks or complications that are typically associated with a surgery. Results are visible almost immediately. Busy working people tend to choose Botox because it does not require them to alter their work schedule for even a day.

Botox is made of botulinum neurotoxin, which is one of the most powerful biological agents known to man. It is used in extremely diluted forms, in approved doses, to treat several medical as well as cosmetic problems, as approved by the FDA. With the FDA approval for treatment of crow’s feet, Botox can now be used to reduce wrinkles around the corners of the eyes. It can help make the eyes appear rejuvenated and rested.

What are Crow’s Feet?

Clinically known as lateral canthal lines, the crow’s feet refers to the fine lines that emanate outside of frown lines from the far corners of the eyes. When a person is smiling, the crow’s feet become more conspicuous because the action of smiling activates the underlying muscles. As the muscles contract under the skin, the folds appear in the skin naturally. When the action of smiling is repeated frequently over a period of time, the skin folds become permanent.

Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other places who are not inclined in favor of cosmetic surgery, may consider Botox as an effective treatment for frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox medication is directly injected into the targeted muscle tissue that needs to be relaxed. The toxin works instantly to block communication between the muscle and the nerve, sending the muscle into a temporary state of paralysis. This makes the skin relaxed and smooth, and the wrinkle does not appear when a person smiles.

Approval from FDA

While announcing the formal approval for Botox treatment for crow’s feet, the FDA has stated that Botox is an effective temporary treatment to help minimize wrinkles and lines that form near aging eyes, which are known as crow’s feet. In 2002, the FDA has given its first approval to Botox for cosmetic treatment of frown lines.

Prior to that, Botox use was allowed only for medication treatment of conditions such as eyelid spasms, underarm perspiration and severe migraines. Plastic surgeons have been providing Botox treatment as an effective alternative for several years to patients who may not agree to the surgery route.

Allergan Study

Allergan, Inc., Irvine, California based manufacturer of Botox has received the approval from FDA for treatment of crow’s feet only after it successfully showed the results of a study conducted to assess the impact of the treatment. The study included two groups of adult participants, out of which one group of 833 participants was randomly chosen to receive a placebo Botox injection.

The group that was administered Botox treatment showed a substantial reduction in crow’s feet. The treatment is now approved by the FDA, but an experienced cosmetic surgeon will always advise the patient to keep realistic expectations from the outcome and remember that the results of Botox may last only for about three to six months. The treatment can, however, be repeated to prolong the results.

FDA Caution

FDA includes a clear warning on Botox labels, which says that the toxin might spread to other areas of the body, which can result in symptoms similar to botulism. However, the FDA also notes that when Botox treatment is delivered in controlled doses, it has never resulted in a confirmed serious case of botulism. It can be inferred from the FDA warning that Botox treatment should be performed by a qualified expert in cosmetic surgery or only by a certified Botox provider.

Dr. Gary Motykie Patient Reviews Los Angeles | Beverly Hills

Dr. Gary Motykie Patient Reviews:

Dr. Gary Motykie performed 7 different procedures on me!

It’s important to state how rare it is to find a surgeon who is expert in one procedure let alone (from my experience) 7 different procedures! Dr Motykie performed for me Revision rhinoplasty, Revision breast augmentation, Revision Benelli lift, face lift, neck lift, lip lift (I needed a lot of lifting!) and facial fat grafting (under eyes and lips). He is truly an extremely talented surgeon and artist (also a very important trait for a PS). Revision surgeries are very difficult procedures & they require the skills of an expert surgeon with an artistic eye. Dr Motykie gave me the most amazing perfect nose. My boyfriend kisses it several times a day and says how beautiful I am. I healed much more quickly than my previous surgeries which is incredible given this was my third nose job and the other work I had done at the same time! He uses special techniques to help with faster healing. He also did a facelift, neck lift, lip lift, & fat grafting. Everything looks so natural; I don’t have to use fillers anymore! He also performed revision BA; they look so young and amazing now! With my revision Benelli lift one suture didn’t hold, so one areola is larger than the other. This is VERY rare, which he is fixing for free next month. This type of superior business practice and dedication to achieving the best result and happiness for his patients is evidence of how much he really cares about his patients and his work and why you want Dr Motykie to be your surgeon. I had so many procedures at once and achieved amazing results, with only a minor extremely rare suture not holding. I would never trust anyone other than Dr Motykie. He is patient, spends lot of time listening to you and talking through all procedures and options. His staff are so nice and helpful as well; their warmth and kindness are comforting as you go through this journey. I’ve used the Motykie MedSpa as well and the staff is top notch! I plan to have them perform Laser skin resurfacing when I go in for my suture fix next month.

Very Professional 

I first saw this provider on a tv show called Dr 90210 a few years back, and then ran across him again while researching doctor’s now.. During my consultaion Dr, Motykie was very professional and answered all my questions honestly, I also liked the fact that he didnt seem to rush through my consultation or push me into this surgery. And no the fact that Dr Motykie was on t.v had nothing to do with my decision to have him do my surgery 🙂 Ovedall my experience has been good and I cant wait to see my final results!

Dr. Motykie is amazing!

Dr. Motykie is amazing, and so is his work! During my consultations with him, he was very cognizant about making sure all my questions and concerns were answered. I never got the feeling that he was too busy to spend extra time with me. The staff was great and punctual, I never had to worry about anything and when you’re already nervous about surgery to begin with, there’s nothing you want more than to feel like you’re being taken care of. During my recovery, I followed other people’s blogs who documented their tummy tuck healing process and procedures with other doctors and to be honest, I seemed to be healing at a much quicker rate than them and with less scaring too — this sealed the deal for me that I picked the right doctor. I hope this helps anyone looking for a good surgeon in the LA area, feel free to email me directly with any questions about liposuction or tummy tuck.

Plastic Surgery Treatments may Help You Stay Competitive at the Workplace

women in businessDr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon for advanced procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles may consult with Dr. Motykie for the latest cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical treatments to enhance their appearance.

Cosmetic Enhancement and Job Competitiveness

A majority of patients are looking for a suitable cosmetic surgeon to improve their aesthetics in order to satisfy their inherent desire to look youthful and attractive. However, there seems to be a separate segment of women patients who are interested in plastic surgery and other cosmetic treatments primarily with an aim to maintain or improve their competitiveness at the workplace.

A number of working women in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and other places appear to be driven by a perception that if the signs of aging become too conspicuous and make them look old or tired, it may adversely impact their career prospects. Women who seriously believe in this perception may feel the pressure to maintain eye catching looks and a youthful appearance at the place of work just to be able to compete with their younger counterparts.

Most of these women are keen to look vibrant and refreshed, but they may not really be looking for extensive ‘plastic’ jobs that could alter their appearance drastically or take several years off their face and body. Even if they continue to look their real age, they are happy with it – as long as they look healthy and vibrant for their age. Women in their 40s and 50s seem to be more inclined towards cosmetic surgery and other procedures to avoid being perceived as “too old” for certain jobs or assignments at the workplace.

Minimally Invasive Treatments

Technological advancements and FDA approvals for various non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have led to a growing popularity of these treatments. Some working women may choose these procedures over the option of surgery because of some of the key benefits that these treatments offer.

Many women in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles seem to be opting for treatments such as Botox, cosmetic facial fillers, chemical peels, fat freezing techniques such as CoolSculpting, laser based cosmetic enhancements and even ultrasound and radio frequency based treatments.

From a busy working woman’s perspective, some of the key benefits of non-surgical treatments are as follows:

  • Less dramatic and more natural looking results.
  • Gradual appearance of results rather than sudden changes.
  • No or little downtime involved.
  • Avoidance of risks and complications typically associated with a surgery.
  • No general anesthesia and treatment on an outpatient basis.

Surgical Treatments for Working Women

Working women who are in their middle age and looking to ‘freeze’ their appearance of aging signs, if not ‘reverse’ the signs, may opt for surgical procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck with a reputed plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, or other places. Many of the women in this age group may not be looking for extensive treatment, and may just opt for a partial tummy tuck or partial facelift.

Some women may, in fact, request the cosmetic surgeon to keep their facial wrinkles, and just soften their impression. Their goal is to look natural and look their age, but somehow prolong their current appearance for a few more years and prevent very conspicuous signs of aging from setting in. While there is no evidence to suggest that employers may be discriminating on the basis of looks, but the feedback from many working women indicates their belief that good looks can somehow help them improve or maintain their job competitiveness.

Job Retention in a Slow Economy

An interesting phenomenon appears to emerge during the times of economic slowdown. During such periods when job uncertainty becomes higher, layoffs are more frequent and new jobs are harder to come by, working women seem to pay more attention to their appearance to ensure they remain job competitive. A survey of 756 women compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2009 indicated that a significant number of working women think that plastic surgery and other cosmetic techniques can increase their chances of success in their jobs.

As many as 73 percent of the respondents in the ASPS survey stated that when the economic conditions are more difficult, looks can play a role in finding a job, receiving a promotion or bringing new business for the employer. Four in five respondents said that they believe a cosmetic treatment can help improve their confidence levels, which is a competitive strength at the workplace.

Antioxidant Juicing & CoolSculpting – Dr. Motykie Featured on the Marie Show

The Marie Show featured a talk on this subject by Dr. Gary Motykie, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, California!

Dr. Gary Motykie offers alternative advice before going under the knife for a nip and tuck. The experienced Beverly Hills plastic surgeon stresses the importance of eating nutritious foods versus counting calories. He speaks about the poor status of the standard American diet (S.A.D.) because you’re getting too many toxins and preservatives. Instead, he promotes juicing to cleanse the body. Prior to surgery, you should be in good health because procedures put a lot of stress on your body. In lieu of liposuction, Dr. Gary explains a non-invasive method of freezing your fat.

Check out the notes from the show on how to look and feel younger, from licensed plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Dr. Gary Motykie:

Antioxidant Diet Foods

  • Blueberries/blackberries/raspberries
  • Garbanzo beans/White Beans/Kidney Beans
  • Artichokes
  • Prunes

Antioxidant Supplements

  • Milk Thistle Extract: Used for thousands of years to improve health.
  • Bacopa Extract: A serious free-radical scavenger.
  • Ashwagandha: Supports a healthy immune system.
  • Turmeric Extract: Powerful contributor
  • Green Tea Extract: Contains important antioxidants.
  • Protandim with Nrf2
    1. Nrf2 fights oxidative stress.
    2. Nrf2 helps the body regulate at peak efficiency.
    3. Nrf2, a protein messenger that binds itself to DNA, is the master regulator of the body’s aging process and is critical in the fight against oxidative stress.
    4. Nrf2 communicates with cells, instructing them to do what they’re already designed to do. When activated, Nrf2 enters the nucleus of a cell and up-regulates “survival genes,” genes that enable cells to survive in the face of stress from free radicals and other oxidants, and down-regulates other genes that promote inflammation and fibrosis to help the body function at an optimal level.

The brief video below provides an animation of 3DEEP RF technology in action.  For more details on this unique, proprietary technology for effective aesthetic treatments, click here.

3DEEP RF Technology – Anchored in Science

EndyMed’s proprietary 3DEEP™ technology is a multi-source, phase-controlled radio frequency energy that is state-of-the-art, safe and effective. 3DEEP represents the latest generation in the evolution of RF-based professional skin treatment devices.

  • 3DEEP uses multiple RF sources and sophisticated software to effectively control the phase of the energy flowing between the handpiece electrodes. This energy treatment method enables the delivery of controlled heat deep into the skin, while preserving the overlying epidermis. 3DEEP eliminates concerns about any potential side effects and the need for cooling.
  • 3DEEP™ uniquely controls the power and depth of the RF energy delivered to the skin, different to the other RF products on the market today.
  • 3DEEP RF – Penetrates Deeply Into Skin Compared to Bipolar or Monopolar RF
  • Monopolar / Unipolar RF- Technology in which the RF energy flows uncontrolled through the body. This can be painful for the patient and requires intense skin cooling during the procedure.
  • Bipolar and X-polar RF – Technology in which the RF flows superficially and is less efficient. It requires cooling to protect the skin.
  • 3DEEP® RF – Technology which results in deep, controlled and targeted energy flow with minimal energy flow on the skin’s surface. No cooling is needed.
  • 3DEEP RF – Tangible Benefits, Visible Results

3DEEP™ can be employed for multiple medical and aesthetic applications, including micro-ablation, non-ablative skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, acne scar treatment and body contouring.  3DEEP RF technology has the following benefits:

  • Enables focused & contained deep energy delivery
  • Eliminates the need for active cooling by minimizing the energy flow on the skin’s surface
  • Delivers totally safe and minimally painless or completely painless treatments
  • Enables personalized parameters

Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat.

It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither is cool by us. That’s exactly why we developed CoolSculpting. Only CoolSculpting targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.

The Cool Solution is the More Natural Solution.

Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Totally uncool. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.
