Cellulite Removal Treatment

Tag Archives: cosmetic surgery

People in good shape may also sometimes have problem areas on the body that may require refinement or toning. Cellulite is particularly a stubborn problem, which can compromise the appearance of skin. For people who want to avoid plastic surgery, Venus Freeze offers an effective non-surgical solution to treat cellulite in targeted areas.

Venus is a safe and proven procedure that will tighten the skin and decrease the appearance of cellulite, allowing the skin to look smoother and more beautiful. The results are visible quickly with a progressive enhancement over several months after the treatment.

Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides cellulite removal treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other neighborhoods and communities in this region of SoCal.

Main Elements of Venus Freeze

Certain key elements in Venus Freeze technology make the treatment more effective and safer than various other types of non plastic surgery and minimally invasive cellulite reduction and skin tightening treatments. These elements include:

  • Multi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy provides consistent heat to several tissue depths in a rapid, smooth, and pain-free way.
  • Vari-pulse technique facilitates pulsed suction which is developed to provide penetration of energy into the deeper layers of the skin, promote blood circulation, and lymphatic drainage in the areas of concern.
  • Real-Time Thermal Feedback allows controlled delivery of heat as well as constant contact with the tissue. Outcomes are more homogenous, and there is a minimal risk of damage due to overheating.

Venus Freeze is the pioneer comprehensive aesthetic technology that offers a combination of the advantages of magnetic pulse, multi-polar, and VariPulse to deliver longer-lasting, predictable, and aesthetically appealing outcomes.

This FDA cleared device is effective on all skin types and assists in achieving sustainable outcomes for non-invasive skin tightening, body contouring, cellulite reduction, circumferential reduction, and wrinkle reduction.

(MP)² Technology

Venus Concept has patented the (MP)² technology, and it is offering relief to thousands of individuals seeking cosmetic improvements such as fat reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite removal. The combined pulse magnetic fields and multi-polar RF offers a synergistic effect to achieve clinical outcomes and ensure a high level of patient satisfaction.

How it Works?

The Venus (MP)² technology works as follows:

Cellulite Reduction

The RF element of the Venus Freeze technology facilitates enzyme mediated lipolysis. This enables improved blood circulation, a decrease in subcutaneous fat mass, and stabilization of the collagen strands. Collagen and elastin production in combination with this process leads to a reduction in cellulite and produces enhanced body contours.

Skin Tightening

Venus (MP)² helps in reversing aging signs by tightening the skin in particular locations. The magnetic pulse element of the procedure stimulates the release of growth factors. Such growth factors enable fast multiplication of dermal fibroblasts and production of new blood vessels. The RF element leads to the synthesis of elastin and collagen. This helps the skin look tauter, fuller, and more elastic.

Wrinkle Reduction

The process of wrinkle formation is slowed or even reversed with the (MP)² technology. The two technological elements work together to slow down the body’s natural process of wrinkle development. The appearance of existing lines and wrinkles reduces as collagen and elastin make the skin look fuller. The skin’s texture becomes tauter and healthier.

Dependable cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this area of the state for cellulite removal treatments.

B6iZf1wRvg2y5xSIXaiYvYEdLOUUe_0ZNTTmG6-wO4wPRP scalp injection hair growth implant is a cutting edge treatment to promote hair re-growth. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the treatment, including its estimated costs. The procedure is elective, and not likely to be covered under the patient’s health plan. 

Patients should carefully evaluate the costs and benefits, and compare the PRP scalp injection treatment with other hair restoration options before making a final decision.

Profound and cordial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, who has a board certification in plastic surgery, provides PRP injection treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations in The Golden State.

Sticker Price Comparison with Hair Transplant Surgery

The dollar amount of PRP Injections will usually turn out to be lower than a hair transplant surgery. The traditional hair transplant surgical procedure is more intensive, requiring many hours of treatment. PRP scalp injection treatment, on the other hand, is less complicated and involves minimal discomfort or downtime.

The price tag of PRP scalp injection treatment is likely to be considerably lower than that of a traditional hair transplant surgery. The preparation time as well as post-treatment recovery is also minimal in case of PRP therapy. Working people can quickly return to their job, which can also have cost-saving advantages over a traditional hair transplant procedure.

Financial Factors

The monetary amount of PRP scalp injection treatments can vary from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice in some cases. Some of the factors that will go into determining the actual cost include:

Practice Location

The price tag of living index can differ from one city to another, which will have an impact on the average costs of most types of products and services, including aesthetic procedures such as PRP injections. Patients should recognize that prices in a particular region could be influenced by the variations in real estate costs, median household incomes, and local tax rates.

Treatment Provider’s Skills

If the PRP scalp injection procedure is performed by a highly trained and experienced professional, who works under the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon, it may be worth choosing them instead of someone who lacks expertise or experience but offers a lower price tag.

Personalized Care and Services

A practice that offers state of the art PRP hair restoration technology and equipment as well as a complete range of facilities to ensure the patient’s safety and complete is preferable. The commitment of the provider and the staff and the personalized care and attention that a patient receives at a practice will make a difference to the final results. Patients should look at the costs in the context of the standards of care that a practice offers.

Extent of Treatment

Some patients may require only limited PRP scalp injections in a small surface area, while some others may need more extensive treatment.

The total number of treatment sessions may also vary between patients over several months. Therefore, the costs in each case will vary. Accomplished and committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this part of the country for PRP hair restoration.

Baldness and thinning hair are a widespread issue for both men and women. One of the more promising, non-surgical hair restoration solutions that has emerged in recent years is PRP scalp injections.

Research has shown that hair follicles that stop generating hair may not necessarily be dead, but may only be lying injured, damaged or dormant.

It is possible to restore these follicles for hair re-growth, and this is where PRP scalp injections can help. Considerate and successful cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, who has a board certification in plastic surgery, provides PRP injection treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and cities in this region of the nation.

What is PRP?

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is an advanced technique to promote speedy hair growth without involving plastic surgery. The procedure involves injecting the affected areas of the scalp with growth factors from the patient’s blood platelets to trigger new hair growth.

Similar to stem cell therapy, this growth factor injectable treatment can curb the process of hair loss and hair thinning, while helping in the production of new hair. According to researchers, the technique to use concentrated plasma in the hair scalp has achieved a high success rate already in all kinds of patients.

PRP Preparation and Usage

At the time of pre-op consultation for PRP injectable procedure, the expert will discuss various aspects of the treatment with the patient. Only autologous PRP will be used for hair restoration, which means that it will only be extracted from the patient’s own blood. A small amount of blood will be drawn from the patient and sent through a centrifugal process to separate the liquid and solid components.

Platelet activators such as collagen, thrombin and calcium may be added. PRP is the blood’s separated solid component. The treatment provider will then re-introduce this PRP into the affected area of the scalp using small injections. PRP is also sometimes combined with a hair transplant surgery for more effective outcomes.

PRP injections may be delivered in stages (at intervals of three to nine months) to stimulate thorough hair re-growth. The patient can notice visible improvement in about two to six months. Periodic follow-up treatments can help to maintain the improvements in the long term.

How does PRP Work?

Hair follicles absorb oxygen from the healthy tissue to survive. Researchers evaluating the effects of PRP injections for hair restoration say that when white blood cells and blood platelets are injected into the tissue through PRP, it helps promote the natural wound healing process in the body.

Some researchers also believe that PRP injections for the scalp are not only helpful in stimulating new follicle growth, but also to prevent hair loss.

Conditions treated with PRP Injections

PRP treatment can be used to address different types of hair loss, including:

  • Alopecia Totalis
  • Alpecia Areata
  • Male Pattern Hair Loss
  • Female Pattern Hair Loss
  • Hypotrichosis
  • Loss of hair due to metabolic conditions, medicinal side-effects, and iron deficiency

Renuva Skin Treatment maxresdefault

Renuva Adipose Matrix is an innovative and advanced skin care treatment for people who want to avoid plastic surgery to enhance their skin appearance. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain various aspects of Renuva Skin Care, and discuss its estimated costs.

The provider’s first goal should be educate the patient about Renuva and help them make a well-considered decision. Cordial and perspicacious cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides Renuva Adipose Matrix treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations in this part of the West Coast.

Financial Factors

The sticker price of Renuva Skin Care is significantly more competitive than a plastic surgery procedure. But the actual monetary amount can vary between two practices, and sometimes even between two patients at the same practice. The following factors will go into determining the overall cost of the procedure:

Practice Location

The price tag of Renuva Adipose Matrix can vary from one city to another due to the differences in regional economies. Practices located in prime urban centers and main metropolitan areas usually have to bear higher real estate costs and other overheads. Therefore, their prices may be slightly higher compared to those of a practice located in a small town in an interior region.

Injection Provider’s Expertise

The expertise and authority of the injection provider who will perform Renuva treatment could influence the costs of procedure. Leading practitioners invest in the latest techniques, continuing education, and strive to provide the highest standards of care. Therefore, the provider’s fee could be marginally higher in such cases. It is usually worth the extra cost to receive the best quality treatment and personalized care under the supervision of an experienced, righteous, and board certified plastic surgeon.

Extent of Treatment

Some patients may require more substantive transfer of donor tissue in multiple areas. Some other patients may only require limited enhancement in a single area. Therefore, the amount of Renuva allograft involved, and the time taken to perform the treatment can vary between two patients. This will have some impact on the overall costs of the treatment.

Sticker Price Comparison with Surgery

Fat transfer cosmetic surgery procedures can be used to restore tighter and firmer skin. But these procedures will typically involve costs of anesthesia, fees of the plastic surgeon, expenses of the surgical facility, and pre- and post-operative costs such as medical tests, compression garments, prescription drugs and multiple visits to the surgeon’s office.

All these costs are eliminated in case of Renuva Skin Care treatment. The procedure can be performed without the involvement of general anesthesia. It can be performed as an in-office procedure on an outpatient basis. No cuts or incisions are involved. The patient does not have to go through any significant downtime, which itself can have cost implications for working people in case of surgery.

Insurance and Financing

Insurance coverage will not be applicable for a cosmetic procedure such as Renuva Skin Care. But financing through third party medical care finance companies is available to most patients. Caring, diligent, and innovative cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and cities in this part of the country for Renuva procedure.

Body Lift Recovery Time | Los Angeles Plastic Surgery | West HollywoodSagging skin and tissue in the lower and upper body areas can be tightened to restore a younger looking figure with body lift plastic surgery.

Recovery is a vital aspect of the body lift surgery, and patients should have the commitment to go through the recovery process as per the surgeon’s guidelines. Instructions for recovery will be given by the surgeon or their staff during the initial consultation as well as after the body lift surgery is completed.

The length of recovery can differ between two patients depending on the extent of body lift surgery performed, the surgical techniques used by the surgeon, and the patient’s natural healing ability.

Some patients may undergo both upper and lower body lift, while others may only receive treatment in selective lower body areas. Accomplished, focused, and splendid cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides body lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

First Week of Recovery

Following the body lift surgery, the incision sites will be wrapped in bandages, but the patient will most likely return home the same day of the surgery. The surgeon will place drain tubes under the skin in the incision areas, and the nursing staff will instruct the patient about emptying the drains and measuring the fluid until the first post-operative appointment.

Most patients will experience some pain and soreness in the incision sites in the first week after body lift plastic surgery. Prescription pain meds and antibiotics may be given in the first week. Bruising will rapidly subside after the first week, but swelling will take a longer time to resolve. The patient should sufficiently rest in the first week at home, but they should also perform light activities and take short walks in this period to maintain blood flow to incision sites.

 

First Month of Recovery

Most patients will be able to resume their normal routine or go back to their workplace in about 10 to 14 days after body lift. However, the exact period will vary according to the extent of surgery performed. The surgeon will instruct them to avoid strenuous exercises and activities for the first three to four weeks.

During the recovery period, the patient will be required to refrain from smoking as well as taking certain blood thinning medications and NSAIDs. The patient should be prepared to wear the compression garments as instructed by the patient in this phase to promote firming up of the skin and faster healing.

 

 

Long-term Recovery and Results

Following a successful body lift recovery, the patient can expect to enjoy improved body contours for many years. But body lift is not a substitute for a healthy diet or regular exercise. Major weight fluctuations can compromise the results of body lift. The patient should also not have plans for a near-term pregnancy after a body lift.

Post-operative appointments with the surgeon should be diligently followed. If at any time during recovery, the patient notices any abnormal side effects, they should contact the surgeon. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and cities in this part of California for body lifts.

Body Lift Before and After Pictures | Los Angeles Plastic SurgeryA body lift is a popular body contouring plastic surgery procedure to enhance the appearance of lower or upper body areas or both. At the time of pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about various aspects of body lift surgery, and may also present body lift before and after photographs.

The first concern of a responsible surgeon will be to ensure that the patient makes an independent and well-considered decision about the procedure. Profound and astute cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides body lift and other procedures for the breast, body, and face to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities and suburbs across the landscape.

 

What are Body Lift Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of body lift plastic surgery refer to a set of images pertaining to an earlier patient who has undergone the same surgery with successful results. The set includes pictures taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-op swelling and bruising has been eliminated and full effects of body lift procedure have been established.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained only with the proper consent of the patient and are presented before new patients in a discreet and appropriate way. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the standard protocol. The sole purpose of the surgeon behind this exercise is to use these pictures as a visual tool to describe the potential effectiveness of body lift surgery to new patients.

 

Benefits

Body lift is a major body contouring surgery, which can make some patients apprehensive about how their appearance would be impacted by it and whether the procedure will meet their personal aesthetic goals and expectations. Some patients may only require body lift in one or two lower body areas such as the buttocks and thighs, while some others may need more extensive upper as well as lower body lift.

In each case, the patient will be in a better position to understand the surgeon’s recommendation and will be able to make the right choices when they have access to body lift before and after photos.

 

Keeping Realistic Expectations

A body lift surgeon will know from experience that best patient satisfaction levels are achieved in such a procedure when the patient has a clear understanding of what a body lift can or cannot do for them, and they have formed realistic expectations about it. Therefore, the surgeon will prefer to present body lift before and after photos at the very first appointment.

Patients with realistic expectations will be able to appreciate the final results in a better way and feel good about their new body. This risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient is minimized with this simple effort.

 

Online Photographs

The surgeon has the option to provide digital versions of body lift before and after photos on their practice website. Dedicated, impressive, and successful cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for body lift surgery.

What really has changed the game here is digital technology. There is not one major industry in the country and probably not the world that has not embraced this technology. Now vivid pictures can be seen almost instantly without making any noise either literally or figuratively. Someone can look at these pictures waiting in a line or in their own home without anyone else knowing at all.

These pictures give patients the confidence that they are doing the right things regardless of the decision they make. If they choose to go forward they are doing it because they know what they are signing up for. They do not have to rely on vague brochures or old picture books. Website body lift pictures are crisp and clear and allow someone to apply what they see on the screen to their own situation. This invites more harmony to this process.

How much does a Body Lift Cost? | Los Angeles Plastic SurgeryA body lift is a customizable plastic surgery procedure to improve contours in the upper, lower, or mid body, or may be combined for overall body lift.

The costs of the procedure will vary according to the patient’s cosmetic needs and the extent of surgery required. Dr. Gary Motykie is a dedicated cosmetic surgeon providing body lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and locations in this part of Southern California.

 

Financial Factors

Some of the key factors that will impact the dollar figure of body lift include:

 

Type of Body Lift

If the sagging skin and fat tissue deposits are only present in a limited body area, a less extensive lower, upper or mid body lift procedure may be performed. This will involve limited removal of skin from one or two specific sites in the body.

A full body lift plastic surgery, on the other hand, will involve lifting of sagging tissue from several areas, which may include buttocks, thighs, abdomen, breasts and upper arms. The costs of a full body lift will be significantly higher than that of a partial lift.

 

Single or Multi-State Surgery

Many patients are good candidates for a single body lift surgery procedure, but in a few cases, the surgeon may recommend breast up the procedure into multiple surgical appointments. Multi-state surgery will cost more because repetitive costs for anesthesia, surgical room fees and pre- and post-op care will be incurred.

Superlative and percipient cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for body lift surgery and other procedures for the breast, body and face.

 

Fat Removal

While body lift will usually involve only tightening of loose skin in targeted areas, some patients may have excess fat pockets along with sagging skin. In such case, the surgeon may recommend liposuction surgery along with body lift, which will add to the overall costs of the procedure.

 

Patient’s Health

Some patients may have underlying medical conditions or may suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes, which affect the immune system. Body lift may be more complicated in such cases, and will require additional care for surgery preparation, medical tests, surgical techniques, and recovery. These can add to the overall costs of the procedure.

 

Anesthesia or Sedation

The surgeon may decide to perform body lift surgery with the patient under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. In case of general anesthesia, the costs may increase because it will include the fee of an anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist who will be present throughout the surgery to monitor the patient’s response.

 

Pre- and Post-Op Costs

Body lift surgery may be preceded by some medical exams and diagnostic tests. Post-op costs can include the costs of prescription pain meds and antibiotics, medical tests, compression garments, and post-operative appointments.

 

Insurance

Although medical insurance is generally not available in case of an elective body lift surgery, but in a few cases, the patient may be eligible for coverage. If the sagging skin folds are causing rashes, infection, pain or other medical concerns, the insurer may cover a part of the costs.

Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Women and Men | Los AngelesInnovations in plastic surgery techniques over the years have created new possibilities for millions of people to achieve their desired physical look and boost their self-image and self-esteem. The popularity of both invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures has grown dramatically in recent decades in the US.

However, some procedures have stood the test of time and have remained consistently in demand for both women and men. Committed and judicious cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides a variety of procedures for the breast, body and face to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

 

Consistent Growth

In 2016, Americans spent over $15 billion on invasive and non-invasive aesthetic procedures in the US. These are the official figures as per the latest multi-specialty statistical report of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). The figure represents a jump of 11 percent over 2015.

About 56 percent of this amount was spent on cosmetic surgery procedures, while non-surgical aesthetic procedures accounted for the remaining 44 percent. The figure of $15 billion in 2016 is the largest spending ever in a single year, ever since ASAPS instituted its annual Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics survey two decades ago.

The 2016 survey of ASAPS also reveals that many patients are now inclined to choose more refined cosmetic procedures. For instance, fat transfer breast augmentation, which is a more subtle way to increase breast size, has gained popularity among women. Similarly, some women prefer breast lift over breast implants to achieve subtle improvements.

However, this does not mean to say that the traditional breast augmentation surgery is losing demand. In absolute terms, more women are now seeking breast implant surgery to enhance breast appearance. Niche procedures such as labiaplasty are now becoming mainstream. The demand for men’s procedures also has been on the rise in recent years.

 

Top Five Procedures

The top five most popular plastic surgery procedures for both women and men in the US in 2016, as per the ASAPS survey include:

  • Liposuction – 414,335 procedures
  • Breast Augmentation – 310,444 procedures
  • Tummy Tuck – 181,540 procedures
  • Eyelid Surgery – 173,883 procedures
  • Breast Lift – 161,412 procedures

 

Liposuction

Liposuction can be customized according to the patient’s specific body contouring needs, and may be performed independently or in conjunction with other surgeries.

 

Breast Augmentation

Breast implant surgery has remained consistently popular due to continually improving surgical techniques as well as advanced qualities of FDA approved breast implants.

 

Tummy Tuck

More women and men now seek tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty to achieve a flatter abdomen. The procedure can be performed as either full or partial tummy tuck.

 

Eyelid Surgery

Upper and lower eyelids can be rejuvenated with eyelid surgery. The procedure is often combined with facelift or brow lift surgeries.

 

Breast lift

Women with sagging breasts can restore a tighter, more firmed up breast appearance with breast lift surgery. The procedure may be combined with breast implants to create more comprehensive results.

What is a Body Lift? | Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery | West HollywoodBody lift is a comprehensive body contouring plastic surgery procedure aimed at improving the tone and shape of the underlying loose or weak tissue that supports the skin and fat. Body lift surgery will help to remove the excess skin and fat and restore a smoother look in one or more areas of the body that need a lift. Unsightly cellulite condition of the skin can also be improved with body lift.

Some of the common sites where body lift surgery is performed include the abdomen, thighs, groin and buttocks. Aging, genetics, sun and wind exposure, pregnancy or weight fluctuations can lead to skin laxity in these areas.

If the patient suffers from stubborn fat deposits along with poor skin elasticity, body lift may have to be combined with liposuction. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides body lift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

 

 

Candidacy

Individuals who are bothered by the loose, wrinkled or hanging skin in certain areas due to weak elasticity of soft tissue can make good candidates for body lift plastic surgery. It is usually difficult to improve the loose skin condition with diet or exercise, which makes body lift as the next best alternative.

Body lift is a major procedure, and the surgeon will ensure that the candidate is not suffering from any underlying health condition that could increase the risk of surgery or impair healing. The candidate should be committed to following the surgeon’s instructions for a safe surgery.

 

Surgical Procedure

In most cases, body lift surgery focuses on addressing the lower body areas. A full lower body lift would encompass surgical lifting of the waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, and abdomen in a single procedure. Alternatively, some patients may only need treatment in one or two areas. Upper body areas such as breast lift and arm lift may sometimes be combined to achieve more harmonious results.

The cosmetic surgeon will typically use general anesthesia to perform the body lift procedure. A unique customized surgical plan will be followed according to the extent of surgery required for a patient, the location of the surgical sites, and the amount of excess skin removal needed. In a complete lower body lift, the surgeon will create a circumferential incision around the lower waist to reposition and tightening the sagging tissue.

Once the underlying tissue is tightened, the surgeon will do deep internal suturing to support the newly formed contours. The patient will be able to notice to the improvement in the treated sites once they have recovered from the anesthesia effects. Full results will, however, establish over several months.

 

Recovery

The treated sites will be covered with bandages or dressings after the surgery. The surgeon will place temporary drain tubes under the skin in the incision areas. Recovery period will differ from one patient to another, but in most cases, patients can resume their normal routine or return to work in about 10 to 14 days.

Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and communities in this part of California for body lift surgery.
