The Latest in Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Surgery

luxeA sagging or full neck makes one look aged and overweight. Dr. Kutty now offers a minimally invasive procedure known as the iGuide to shape the neck and sharpen the jawline.  It is done in the office with local anesthesia. It involves several small punctures and no incisions. The advantages are minimal discomfort and a quick recovery. Most patients are back to work in three days. The results are dramatic without being “obvious.”

Another exciting development is in advanced materials for permanent lip augmentation. Traditional permanent materials produce inconsistent results, and fillers have to be injected every four to six months. Since fillers have to be repeated to maintain results, the shape is slightly different each time.

New soft, permanent implants produce an aesthetically pleasing result that is subtle.  Because the implants are so soft, they cannot easily be felt. The result is also highly predictable.

This permanent lip augmentation is done in the office with local anesthesia  in as little as 10 minutes.

Another advance is in the treatment of varicose veins.  Millions of people suffer with them, yet only a fraction receive treatment. Dr. Kutty can use a small catheter to eliminate the problem veins, and it is done under local anesthesia in the office in less than an hour.

The Complete Approach to Cosmetic Surgery

Planning cosmetic surgery is an exciting process. A desire to feel better about yourself (and fit into your older clothing size) is a common reason to consider cosmetic surgery.

When that feeling goes beyond a basic dissatisfaction in your appearance and becomes a more serious frustration, it is more important to think about the reasons you’re thinking about it.

For example, it’s not unusual for someone to be a few pounds overweight and to want liposuction. The best way to get a better shape in that case is to lose the weight. The shape of the area will certainly improve as well as your general health.

Liposuction is not a good way to lose weight. In fact, clients who are significantly overweight are very poor candidates for it. It is not a cure for being overweight, but is intended to tailor body shape. Patients find that getting the right shape only reduces their weight by a small amount.

In order to keep your weight down, it’s important to exercise and eat right.  Many people think that since they’re having liposuction, they can eat whatever they want beforehand and not really take care of themselves.  In fact, the opposite is true. Your result will be much, much better if you’re in better physical condition, because more accurate shaping can be done.
