Patient Testimonial: Sophia – Corrective Body Sculpting, Liposuction


One of the common aesthetic concerns for both women and men is sagging skin and excess fat deposits in certain areas of the body. The typical areas that are impacted by this condition include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, groin, breasts, or upper arms. In some cases, the presence of cellulite may also cause poor aesthetic appeal in certain areas. These conditions can be corrected with plastic surgery procedures such as body contouring, or liposuction or a combination of the two.

It is important to choose a well-qualified and experienced surgeon for such procedures in order to achieve desirable outcomes. Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in body sculpting and contouring procedures. Due to his wide recognition as a cosmetic surgeon and his highly successful track record of results, Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and many other areas in the country and even internationally.

Patient Testimonial – Sophia

Sophia had received body sculpting plastic surgery in the past, but remained dissatisfied with the results. She felt she had only lost her time and money and gone through an elaborate procedure in vain. Thereafter, she decided to make her choice of a plastic surgeon more carefully. She checked out several websites of eminent surgeons and compared and reviewed them in order to make a better informed choice.

Sophia finally decided to open the door to body contouring and liposuction surgery with the leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Motykie. She explained her condition of stubborn fat deposits in the lower body and thigh area. Even though she followed fitness regimen and a healthy lifestyle, but the excess fat pockets and loose skin would not improve with these efforts.

Sophia was struck by the honesty and truthfulness of Dr. Motykie, which was unlike her previous experience. He made her understand the procedures clearly, and rather than build false hopes, he ensured that she had realistic expectations from the surgery before making a final decision about it. Dr. Motykie also advised her about the potential recovery period, which would be about a week.

Final results of body contouring and liposuction for Sophia were highly satisfying. She felt comfortable with the compassionate and caring approach of Dr. Motykie throughout the procedure. In addition to the improved physical appearance, she experienced a new confidence and self-esteem, and was able to get rid of her insecurities. Initial results were very positive, and Dr. Motykie assured her that the results would get even better over the next three months.

Body Contouring

Dr. Motykie may recommend a single body contouring procedure or a group of procedures, depending on the aesthetic needs of a patient. Some of the key body contouring surgeries include:

Dr. Motykie on The Doctor’s TV Show: What You Need to Know About Your Breast Implants – Warranties, News & FAQ’s

Breast implant surgery is the second-most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the US today after liposuction. Breast implants qualities have improved dramatically over the years following the FDA approvals, surgical techniques have become advanced, and overall success rates are very high.

However, a breast augmentation patient will typically need to replace the implants once or more during her lifetime. The implant may get damaged or develop other complications due to a variety of reasons, which makes it necessary to remove or replace it with breast revision surgery.

Case of Darlene, Pleasanton, CA

Darlene, 47, had received saline breast implants nine years ago, when she suffered an implant rupture in 2012. She was in extreme pain, and rushed to her plastic surgeon who refused to treat her unless she agreed to pay for the breast revision procedure. Being a single parent with no spare money at her disposal at that time, Darlene was caught in a sudden health crisis, and writhed in unbearable pain.

After meeting Dr. Gary Motykie via The Doctor’s TV Show, she decided to ask him for help. Dr. Motykie received Darlene with compassion, and explained to her the critical importance of knowing about the quality of her implants, and the status of warranties on implants.

Dr. Motykie surprised Darlene with his willingness to provide her a breast revision surgery free of charge. Following the procedure, he discussed with Darlene about the importance of breast implant warranties so that in the future she would be more aware in the event of a health emergency involving her implants.

Why do Breast Implant Warranties Matter?

Breast implants are available in two primary types: saline and silicone gel implants. The outer shell of the implants in both cases is made of a firm silicone material. One of the challenges with breast implants is that one or both implants may get damaged or ruptured at some point, or develop a condition called capsular contracture at some point of time in the future.

The precise causes for this condition remain unknown, but it usually requires implant replacement. In some cases, the implant may become misaligned or mal-positioned, if not damaged. The only way to correct this condition is to have the breast implants removed or replaced with new implants, which involves breast revisions surgery. Sometimes the patient may require a voluntary replacement of implants due to a change in aesthetic preferences.

With an adequate implant warranty, the patient is secure about the future option of getting breast implants replaced without having to pay for them again. Most implant manufacturers offer warranties with minor variations in their terms and conditions.

Warranty Update from Mentor Breast Implants

Mentor has recently updated their breast implant warranties, which patients should know about. The old warranty covered only a rupture with lifetime replacement and 10 years of $3,500 financial assistance. Now Mentor has added a capsular contracture warranty to all gel implants (round, shaped, smooth, and textured) for capsular contracture, late Seroma or double capsule.

Standard Warranty: $0 charge to patient

3-year warranty for capsular contracture (Bake Grade III/IV), late seroma and double capsule: Mentor will provide two free replacement implants for these patients (the affected side and the contralateral side).

Enhanced Warranty: $200 Charge to Patient (payment within 45 days of surgery)

10 year warranty for capsular contracture (Bake Grade III/IV), late seroma and double capsule: Mentor will provide two free implants for these patients in addition to up to $3,500 of financial assistance.

News From Dr. Motykie’s Office: Changes to The Breast Implant Warranty (Mentor)

The Breast Implant Warranty (Mentor)

The benefits listed below are in addition to everything our current gel warranty covers (lifetime replacement for rupture and 10 years of $3,500 financial assistance). Here is the breakdown for all Primary Augmentation and Primary Reconstruction patients who experience capsular contracture*, late Seroma or double capsule:

Standard Warranty: $0 Charge to Patient

3 year warranty for capsular contracture (Bake Grade III/IV), late seroma and double capsule.  Mentor will provide TWO free replacement implants for these patients (the affected side and the contralateral side).

Enhanced Warranty: $200 Charge to Patient (payment within 45 days of surgery)

10 year warranty for capsular contracture (Bake Grade III/IV), late seroma and double capsule.  Mentor will provide TWO free implants for these patients in addition to up to $3,500 of financial assistance.

More info is also available at: www.mentorwwllc.com.  Patients can register for the Enhanced Warranty at www.mentordirect.com/warranty.

 

*Capsular contracture is when the natural scar tissue that forms around the implant thickens, hardens or begins to shrink (or contract) around the implant, making the implant feel hard. This can cause the implant to appear and feel hard, change shape and often become painful. This condition can also result from an implant rupture. If your breast shape changes, becomes suddenly painful or hard, you may have an implant rupture. You should make an appointment with your plastic surgeon, who may send you for an ultrasound or MRI to rule out implant rupture and/or capsular contracture.

Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) Before and After Photos

Otoplasty Before After Photos | Ear Surgery | Beverly Hills CAEar Surgery, clinically called otoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to correct the shape of ears to make them appear more harmonious with other facial features.

Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon offering otoplasty and other surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby communities.

What are Otoplasty Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of otoplasty plastic surgery refer to a set of images belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure with a successful outcome. The set includes images taken prior to the surgery and following the surgery at a time when swelling has disappeared and full effects of otoplasty are visible clearly.

Advantages

When a candidate is considering ear surgery, they may only have a vague notion of how the procedure may improve the appearance of their ears and how it will impact the overall facial profile. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend otoplasty in combination with another facial procedure to produce more harmonious outcomes. Techniques of otoplasty may vary depending on the specific condition of ears.

In all these situations, it can be confusing for a patient to make the right choices. This is where the plastic surgeon can help by providing otoplasty before and after photos. The photos will serve as a visual aid, and the patient will understand what the procedure can or cannot do for them.

Such patients will typically achieve higher satisfaction levels from the surgery. With the help of otoplasty before and after pictures, the surgeon can ensure that the patient knows what to expect and what not to expect from the surgery.

Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Cost Factors

The cost of otoplasty plastic surgery can differ from one practice to another due to several factors.

Practice Location

Where the practice is located can make a significant impact on the overall price tag of the procedure. The living cost index can vary from one place to another, which will influence the average prices of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic surgery procedures. For instance, the dollar amount of otoplasty in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas may not necessarily be the same as the price in, say, Ohio.

Surgeon’s Fee

The fee charged by the cosmetic surgeon will form a significant part of the overall cost. This fee may depend on the qualifications, experience and recognition of the surgeon in the field of otoplasty and other procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), a patient should choose the right surgeon for their needs, and factors such as the surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration in such a decision.

Anesthesia and Surgical Room Costs

Otoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia and IV sedation, but in some cases, general anesthesia may be used. The dollar amount issued by the anesthesiologist can vary according to their skills and experience. Surgical room costs can differ depending on the type of technologies, experienced staff, and personalized services offered at a particular facility.

Average Cost

Other patients will have the option to have the procedure financed through professional medical care finance firms, or press the button for credit card payments, crowdsourcing, family borrowings, or bank loans.
