Minimally Invasive Procedures Statistics
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are growing in popularity, according to statistics recorded by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Minimally invasive procedures increased by 180 percent between 2000 and 2016, while invasive procedures, like surgeries, decreased by 6 percent over the same time period. Innovations Medical offers many minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to patients looking to reshape their bodies or freshen their face.
What Does Minimally Invasive Mean?
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures minimize or eliminate the need to make incisions in the skin. Many minimally invasive procedures use only needles instead of scalpels to treat patients or require only tiny incisions (1/4 inch or less). Some types of minimally invasive procedures may use imaging tools to guide physicians during procedures.
Why Choose Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures?
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures mean less pain and blood loss, and a reduced risk of scarring for patients. These procedures often use local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia or sedation. This means a faster recovery and less downtime compared to traditional surgeries, like breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation or buttock augmentation procedures.
What Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures Does Innovations Medical Offer for Body Sculpting?
Innovations Medical offers many types of minimally invasive procedures for both body sculpting and facial rejuvenation. Popular procedures include SmartLipo liposuction, natural breast augmentation and the Brazilian Butt Lift. The liposuction performed at Innovations Medical is called tumescent liposuction, which uses a numbing fluid in the treatment area versus general anesthesia. Dr. Johnson makes tiny incisions in the treatment area and removes fat using a small liposuction tool. This liposuctioned fat can be used to reshape the breasts during the natural breast augmentation procedure and give the buttocks new shape and lift during the Brazilian Butt Lift. The fat is injected into the treatment area using a special tool.
What Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures Does Innovations Medical Offer for Skin Rejuvenation?
Minimally invasive cosmetic offerings at Innovations Medical for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging include facial fat transfer, which uses liposuctioned fat from the patient to replace lost facial volume; anti-aging treatments like dermal fillers to fill in fine lines and creases; and Xeomin, a pure form of botulinum toxin used to prevent wrinkles. In addition to minimally invasive procedures, Dr. Johnson also offers patients many noninvasive procedures for body sculpting and skin rejuvenation.
