Getting Swimsuit Ready
Say hello to summer and endless sunbathing on the beach. Wearing a swimsuit, for some, takes a lot of courage and coaxing though. Because even if we’re eager to hit the beach, being in a swimsuit shows all your defects - stomach, thighs, arms, and other areas where you don’t have enough shape. In this video, Dr. Johnson explains the various procedures that Innovations Medical offers to make your body swimsuit ready.
First on the list is thermage, which uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin without surgery. The tool used creates heat in your tissue and shrinks the collagen, which tightens your skin real time. About 80% of patients see tighter and smoother skin right after the procedure. What’s even better is the further skin tightening effect, which happens 3 to 6 months after the procedure. If you decide to undergo this procedure, there’s no downtime and you can go home the same day.
For those who have a little more fat that needs thinning, liposonix is recommended by Dr. Johnson. It is also non-invasive and you can go home the same day. It involves the use of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to destroy fat cells permanently. Some patients report a little bruising or swelling, but you can return to work the next day. Exercise is not allowed for at least 2-3 days.
To change and sculpt your body shape, liposuction is what Innovations Medical favors. It is the gold standard when it comes to giving you that sexy body you’ve been dreaming of. Coupled with Smart Lipo for skin tightening, this procedure will dramatically change your body. Its done in the office with local anesthesia and although you can go home the next day, there will be at least 2 to 3 days of downtime. Exercise is also limited for a couple of weeks to give the body the chance to heal completely.
And for people who desire to have a part of their body like buttocks and breasts increase in size, liposuction with fat transfer is the best thing procedure to undergo. Fat is harvested from a part of your body that needs thinning and this same fat is injected in your buttocks, for instance. It will have a normal texture and you don’t have to worry about having a reaction, because this implant comes from your own body. It has a downtime of 1 to 2 days and exercise is not allowed for at least 2 weeks. It is also vital to maintain weight for three months.
