According to a poll conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Real Self, one-third or 37% of Americans plan on receiving at least one cosmetic treatment within the next year. Out of this figure, 34% are considering nonsurgical treatments, while 24% plan on opting for the surgical variety. Of the individuals surveyed, 45% of those under the age of 45 were most interested in cosmetic treatments, versus 28% of those 45 years of age and older.
One of the top rated female plastic surgeons in Manhattan, Dr. Aviva Preminger wants to share with you what some of the most popular cosmetic treatments for the coming year.
The most popular three procedures are as follows, nonsurgical fat reduction, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Here is a look at each of these procedures.
Nonsurgical Fat Reduction
BodyTite™ uses radio frequency assisted lipolysis to reduce fat while also tightening loose skin. This can be especially useful in the abdominal area, as well as love handles, the back, thighs, upper arms, and buttocks. This noninvasive form of fat reduction can be done in-office without any anesthesia, and it does not require any incisions! This means there is no downtime or scars to combat.
CoolSculpting is another noninvasive fat reduction method that requires no downtime, anesthesia, or incisions. It safely eliminates fat cells by freezing them, and then your body naturally disposes of the fat cells through waste. It can take up to 8 weeks to see the full effects of treatment. CoolSculpting also is ideal for localized areas of fat such as the stomach, buttocks, and thighs.
When it comes to a tummy tuck, you have two options – a mini and a full tummy tuck. Depending on your needs and desires for a firmer, more attractive mid-section, Dr. Preminger, a Board-Certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan will determine which surgical procedure is right for you. It’s important, however, that you count on some downtime following either of tummy tuck procedure. You also should be in good overall health and able to undergo sedation while receiving your tummy tuck. While you may experience some swelling, bruising, and some level of pain, you can plan on being back to work within 2 weeks, with strenuous activities resuming around weeks 8-12. Results can be long lasting with a healthy diet and exercise.
Dr. Preminger offers traditional liposuction that involves using a small cannula that is inserted beneath the skin to suck away deposits of fat. Laser liposuction in Manhattan, which melts fat as it is removed, and the heat generated by the laser assists in healing and encourages the skin to tighten after the procedure, may be another option available to you at Preminger Plastic Surgery. Both forms of liposuction are completed using sedation and come with limited downtime of about 1-2 weeks.
