Fall at Plastic Surgery Associates and our Aesthetic Center
So, the sun drenched days of summer are fading away. It is not too early to start thinking about next spring and summer though. Some procedures are a really good fit for fall and winter.
Laser resurfacing and photofacials can help remove some of the signs of aging that sun exposure and time etch onto our faces. We offer treatments that have minimal to no downtime that can remove “age spots” and brighten your complexion. And with a little more downtime, you can even remove or significantly reduce wrinkles. The treatments can be tailored to the skin problems you have, and the time you have for recovery.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great procedure to do to get ready for next summer. This is done by liposuctioning fat from areas that you don’t want it (tummy, flanks etc) and injecting into the buttock area to improve the shape and size. There is some bruising and swelling so doing it during the time of year when you normally wear more clothes can make sense.
And of course getting a breast augmentation is another great way to get ready for next summer! There has never been a better selection of implants to choose from. Some patients want the very augmented look and the traditional round implants can achieve that look. Some patients want a more natural looking enhancement, and the newer shaped or “gummy bear” implants are a good choice for achieving a natural look. It takes a while for the implants to look good, especially with round implants, so doing it now will make sure you are ready for next spring.
And don’t forget about your insurance deductibles if you are considering a procedure that insurance may cover. Breast reductions are frequently covered by insurance. If you have met your deductible and your deductible starts over in January, now is the time to make a consult appointment so that the prior approval process and scheduling can be done in time to get the surgery done before that deductible starts over.
And don’t forget, if you refer someone to our practice, make sure they give you credit for the referral. If they schedule a surgical cosmetic procedure, we will give you a coupon that can be used in our office for products and procedures. It would be a great way to introduce yourself to Botox or filler if you haven’t tried them. Or you can use it for a medical grade skin care product, or a photofacial, a microdermabrasion etc.
Time goes by fast. Just because you are putting away your bathing suits, don’t let next summer sneak up on you without looking into that procedure you have been thinking about!
We have some exciting new things coming to Plastic Surgery Associates of Valdosta and our Aesthetic Center. We will be announcing an open house in the near future. Make sure you check back on our facebook page and make sure you are on our email list so you can stay up to date.
