How do Liposuction and Skin Tightening Work Together?

Partying, drinking and eating from end-of-the-year holidays will all take their toll on both your skin and your waistline. And with New Year’s resolutions making promises to lose weight, be healthier and happier, many struggle to fulfill their goals in between their busy schedules.

But sometimes your genes or exercise resistant fat pouches prevent you from attaining those goals. Fortunately, Dr. Rokhsar provides many solutions for those that are looking for dramatic results through surgery or more mild results for the surgery averse.

Liposuctions have been the gold standard to fat reduction in the United States for years. Through anesthesia, small incisions and gentle vacuuming of the fat out of the body, results will be immediate and fulfill the patient’s cosmetic goals. Dr. Rokhsar provides non-invasive options for those that are seeking a modest fat reduction. Liposonix and Ultrashape are two different lasers that emit ultrasound waves into the fat cells and release them into the body’s fluids, which are then naturally digested overtime.

For those that wish to attain a taut and more youthful face, a standard facelift may be an effective option, depending on your cosmetic goals. The standard lift typically addresses the cheek, mid-face, jowls and nasolabial folds (located on either side of the face). Incisions are made usually around the jaw line, hairline and behind the ears. The skin is tightened and in some circumstances fat is removed. Sutures are used to tighten the skin to ensure a quick and virtually scar free healing process.

For those that aren’t ready for surgery or only want minor adjustments, there are various approaches such as Botox, fillers, lasers, ultrasound energy, and thermal energy to smooth away wrinkles and decrease signs of aging. Each technique uses a different method, and in order to achieve the best results possible, Dr. Rokhsar will be able to assess which cosmetic procedures are best for your goals.
