Tummy Tuck vs. Liposuction of Abdomen

A flat stomach is one of the most coveted features of men and women.  When we see a tight abdomen on a person we naturally assume that the person is healthy, exercises, and watches what he/she eats.  Unfortunately for most people, the stomach is the first area to show gained weight and the last to shape up.  If your waistline has stubborn fat, it’s hard to see the results of calorie counting and sit-ups.  A Tummy Tuck or Liposuction of the Abdomen are popular for these reasons Many patients come to Dermacare because they’re bothered by their protruding stomach.   Although most are interested in liposuction, some patients are better candidates for an abdominoplasty, more commonly called a tummy tuck.   Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Reza Rod evaluates every patient and discusses the pros and cons of each procedure.  Dr. Rod explains, “Although many get extraordinary results with Tickle Lipo, there are some patients that have so much excess skin that nothing less than an abdominoplasty will do.  A tummy tuck is more work than liposuction for me and the patient but sometimes it’s required to achieve a tight abdomen.” What’s the difference between a Tummy Tuck and Tummy Liposuction?  Liposuction […]

A Mini Facelift is not a Substitute for a Facelift

Everybody wants results as easy as possible.  Fad facial procedures come and go just like trendy diets.  It’s easy to understand the appeal of alternatives to a facelift like a mini facelift.   After all, a facelift is a surgery that requires a big investment in time and money.  There are many products, treatments, and surgeries that misleadingly claim to be alternatives to a facelift.   Products that claim to offer facelift-like results don’t measure up to the real thing. Facial Surgery Fads There are many terms used to describe surgical facial rejuvenation.  It’s important to realize that many of these terms were concocted by marketers and not plastic surgeons.  An example of failed mini lift procedure was the Lifestyle Lift.  Although their infomercials were once omnipresent on weekend cable channels a few years ago, they are now out of business.  While in existence, it was pitched as a simple procedure like a haircut that could give instant gratification.  The ads left out that the doctors performing the procedure were not board certified plastic surgeons and that many of their patients had more than just the advertised procedure.  Today the company no longer exists and neither does the procedure. Several nonsurgical facial […]

How does tickle lipo help with weight loss?

One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is always weight loss.  In 2017, there are more diet and lipo options than ever to drop weight and get the body you’ve always wanted.  It’s not surprising the media is obsessed with weight loss.  More than two in three Americans are overweight or obese, according to the US Department of Health. It’s a paradox of our generation that we’re simultaneously obsessed with physical beauty and yet more overweight than ever.  Shows like The Biggest Loser may be reality TV, but they aren’t realistic.  Few people can take a six month break from their jobs and families to focus on their body.  Although weight loss is a result of healthy diet and exercise, many people need extra help from lipo to get the look they desire.   In the real world, getting rid of problem areas can be almost impossible without liposuction.  An example of this, is the hit show Extreme Weight Loss which routinely shows the importance of plastic surgery as a component in a weight loss transformation.  If you have succeeded in losing weight, but have specific areas of problem fat, Dermacare’s Tickle Lipo procedure is a great choice.   […]

Lasting Beauty with a Lasting Facelift

Smooth, taut facial skin is the hallmark of youthful looks. Unfortunately, age, gravity and other factors gradually take their toll. Our skin begins to loosen as we grow older, and exposure to the Arizona sun accelerates the aging process.
