Men and women often wait until their holiday parties and traveling are over until they see me. Although liposuction shouldn’t be considered a weight loss procedure, my patients often become healthier after their procedure. After my patients get liposuction, they are always motivated to eat better and exercise more. Fat is taken from problem areas that typically have been bothering the patient for years if not decades. Once patients see their results, they want to stay that way.
As a plastic surgeon in Arizona, my patients are constantly battling the sun damage from the Valley sun. Skin gets damaged by the sun, weather, and aging. Certain types of professions that involve being in the sun, smoking, and sun bathing accelerate skin damage. Facial treatments are always where I start to reverse the ageing process. For most of my younger patients, I have a host of noninvasive procedures I can offer. However, when it comes to extensive sun damage and deep wrinkles, nothing compares to the Hetter Peel formula. With its active ingredient of croton oil it will address the textural changes of the skin, leaving a healthier and younger appearance. A Hetter Peel gives my patients a lasting effect of a dramatically smoother complexion by tightening the skin and improving the appearance of age spots and pigmentation problems. It also treats wrinkles around the mouth, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet. As I apply the peel, it penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, addressing textural changes in the skin. It gets rid of smoker’s lines, deep leather-like lines, sun spots, uneven skin tone and redness. The drawback of this procedure is that it requires some downtime. As […]

At Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery patients have face lifts throughout the year but some months are more popular than others. There are many people that live in Arizona seasonally. As “snowbirds” arrive from Canada and northern states to enjoy some of the nicest weather in the country, the population in Arizona goes up. In the fall, winter, and spring there are just more people in the Arizona area so Dr. Rod performs more face lifts during this period. There are other reasons that cause others to choose to have a face lift during this time as well. Children return to school, family holiday dinners are starting to come up, and some have vacation time that expires at the end of the year that needs to be used or lost. Besides the practicality of have a face lift when it’s cooler, there are other benefits. The sunlight is less intense which makes it easier to protect your healing skin from exposure. The reduced temperature allows recovering patients to cover up with bulkier clothes which attracts less attention. Unlike the body which is easier to cover up, the face is more difficult to hide bandages and healing incisions. For this reason, […]
Phoenix, AZ– As early as 2004, doctors were using Sculptra to reduce the signs of facial wasting in chronic disease such as HIV with great success. At Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery, patients are using Sculptra to reduce the signs of aging without surgery. Recently, we sat down with Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Reza Rod so he could answer our questions about Sculptra Aesthetic. Question: How can a filler make your patients look younger? Dr. Rod: We tend to equate being thin with youth, but when it comes to the face, the opposite is true. Think of a what a baby looks like with his full, thick skin. The extra fat and tissue of the baby’s skin causes it to be smooth and soft. By the time someone is elderly, the skin becomes thin and losses its fullness. As we age, the fullness of the skin is lost which causes wrinkles and bones to appear. Few realize that fullness is the essence of youth in the face. Question: How does it work? Dr. Rod: Sculptra Aesthetic differs from other aesthetic injectables because it revs up your skin’s collagen production. This helps restore your skin from the inside out by increasing facial volume […]
Most of us have parts of our body that we’d like to improve. Even if we exercise and eat well, we can still have problem areas. Some learn to live with their pockets of stubborn fat and some have liposuction. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there were about 414 thousand liposuction cases in 2016. That makes it the most popular surgical procedure in the US.…by far. The reason that liposuction is so popular is because it works. Tickle Lipo Arizona is a simple concept that removes fat to make a person look thinner. Dr. Rod explains, “Once people decide to get lipo, they quickly discover that there are many options that all claim to be the best. Even as a plastic surgeon, I had to do try every form of liposuction before I found that Tickle Lipo works best.” Tickle Lipo doesn’t get near the advertising that other forms of lipo do but it really doesn’t need it. When patients experience Tickle Lipo they tell their friends, family, and co-workers. Dr. Rod says, “My patients are walking advertisements and they love their results. Compared to most forms of liposuction, Tickle Lipo has less bruising, less swelling, […]
The popularity of the Kardashians and Jennifer Lopez has caused buttock augmentation to become one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgical procedures performed in Arizona. In 2016, there were 18,489 Brazilian Butt Lifts preformed which is 26% more than the previous year according to Plastic Surgery Statistics. What is a Brazilian Butt Lift? A Brazilian Butt Lift is when fat is taken from the body and moved to the buttocks to enhance and or increase its size. During your consultation with Dr. Rod, the best donor site for your fat will be determined. Normally fat is removed from the abdomen with liposuction and transferred to the buttocks. It should be noted, however, that donor fat can be taken several other parts of the body. A nice perk of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that it’s two procedures in one; butt augmentation and liposuction. The butt lift increases the volume of the buttocks which simultaneously provides a lift to the area resulting in a shapely and plump backside. Dr. Rod says, “Tickle lipo of the flanks, back, and abdomen during the Brazilian Butt Lift accentuate the hourglass shape of a woman’s body. The procedure gets more popular every year.” More Information […]
