Top Aesthetic Trends in 2018

Aesthetic Trends

8N3-vgth9xUc5aXGBZj10lw7D-LUiMpUnV_n9Yx9n88New trends in the field of aesthetic surgery are emerging due to improvements in surgical and non-surgical technology and techniques. Forward-looking surgeons follow these trends in order to provide the latest treatment options to their patients.

 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides a wide range of surgical as well as non-surgical procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and neighboring locations. One of the procedures that continues to grow in popularity and acceptance is CoolSculpting.

 

Non-surgical is officially the new surgical

 

Researchers indicate that the trend in the popularity of non-surgical treatments will continue to grow as innovative and new technologies are being designed to tighten, shape, erase, lift, and revitalize the skin.

 

Patients will continue to have multiple noninvasive options to choose from body sculpting to fat melting to fulfill their goals of self-enhancement. CoolSculpting technique, which can freeze the fat and eliminate it without surgery is one of the most in-demand non-invasive procedures.

 

However, cosmetic surgery, especially body and breast contouring procedures, will remain popular for patients seeking more substantial changes.

 

Reliance on our own bodies for enhanced outcomes

 

According to researchers, there will be an increase in the use of growth factors such as nano-fat or PRP for revitalizing the skin and improving the growth of hair in 2018-19. In the following year, there will be an increase in the use of treatments to stimulate our own cells inducing them to address some signs of aging naturally.

 

This can be achieved with the use of microfiller injections (tiny amounts of fillers that are injected into and underneath the skin), fat transfer during a facelift or blepharoplasty (this improves the outcomes of these procedures by replacing lost volume) or with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve collagen production, cell growth, and enhanced hair health when injected into the scalp.

 

Non-surgical nose reshaping is back

 

Analysts indicate that nonsurgical nose reshaping will make a comeback. Surgeons can use fillers to enhance the nose shape subtly. Though these results are not permanent, it is a less costly alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. In comparison to rhinoplasty, nonsurgical nose jobs cannot make a nose smaller. However, these procedures can help address imperfections and conceal areas of concern for the patient.

 

All about threads

 

Treatments involving the use of thread to lift the face and body are innovative and improved, and here to stay. Threads are effective as they stimulate collagen production. The thread itself may comprise of materials that act like an alien substance to the body encouraging collagen production.

 

The thread may contain changes in its surface (knots or barbs cones) that will attach to the skin. As the doctor places the thread positioning it over the skin, it appears instantly improved. Over a period, the lifting impact continues to enhance the skin.

 

A focus on vaginal rejuvenation

 

Analysts report an increase in the interest surrounding vaginal rejuvenation in 2018, and it is not over. Lasers that help tighten skin by prompting the production of collagen are effective in vaginal rejuvenation procedures. These in-office treatments offer patients medical as well as aesthetic advantages.

 

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides latest procedures designed for patients who want to lose fat or tighten their skin. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for these procedures.

Have a Beach-Ready Body by Summer

http://freezethefatbeverlyhills.com/about-us/Everyone wants to look like those Baywatch stars right!? Or how they look in Fast and Furious or Beverly Hills 90210, and the list just continues!

Stubborn fat deposits may prevent you from wearing your favorite body-hugging clothes or this summer’s hottest swimwear. At times, the problem areas will just not resolve even with rigorous exercise and a well-balanced diet.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical procedure that targets and removes stubborn fat for a sleeker, smoother body contour. CoolSculpting can successfully treat muffin tops or love handles, thick upper arms and pinchable outer and inner thigh fat. After the treatment, the eliminated fat cells will not return.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by Dr. Gary Motykie, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

What It Is

CoolSculpting delivers targeted and controlled cooling with individualized treatments using a comfortable applicator to precisely and effectively freeze the fat cells beneath the skin. The fat cells that receive the treatment are crystallized or frozen, and eventually die off. After some time, the body processes the fat and removes the cells through natural processes. This creates a sleeker body contour.

The fat cells in the treatment site usually decrease visibly after treatment. These cells are naturally processed and removed by the body. Therefore, they will not transfer to another location in the body.

How It Works

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the provider will apply a gel pad and an applicator to the treatment area where the patient wants to lose fat. The applicator will provide controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells for about 40 to 50 minutes per treatment session.

The CoolSculpting system has a wide array of applicators that are suitable for various body shapes and sizes. These applicators can treat many areas of the body for ideal outcomes.

A significant benefit of CoolSculpting, other than the outcomes, is that there is no downtime unlike procedures that are more invasive, such as liposuction. Patients can read or even take a nap during a treatment session. They can also resume normal activities such as exercise right after treatment. Many clients only require 1 to 2 treatments.

However, some may need a third session for optimal results. The outcomes of CoolSculpting are most visible in around 2 to 3 months after the procedure.

Factors to Consider

For ideal results from CoolSculpting, consider the following factors:

  • Establish whether you are a suitable candidate. CoolSculpting provides the excellent outcomes for those who are within their ideal weight range and physically fit but have slight extra fat in specific areas.
  • Ensure your stubborn fat pockets can be treated. CoolSculpting works most effectively on the back/flanks, upper arms, abdomen, chin, and inner and outer thighs.
  • Do not confuse CoolSculpting with a weight-loss treatment. CoolSculpting must never be used to address obesity or as a substitute for a weight-loss program.

Choosing a Provider

Things to keep in mind when researching where to receive CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Ensure the CoolSculpting treatment provider is certified and experienced in the procedure.
  • Be cautious of deals that seem unreal. Ensure that the “fat-freezing” technique that is being offered is the FDA-cleared CoolSculpting.
  • Make sure that the medical spa staff comprises registered nurses working under doctors’ supervision.

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

Fat Reduction vs. Weight LossA well-balanced diet and active lifestyle form the basis of looking and feeling good. Exercise can achieve useful and profound results, and the surgeon will always motivate patients to exercise regularly. However, there may be at least one area of “stubborn fat” that exercise cannot address.

CoolSculpting can help with such areas where food and exercise alone cannot achieve optimal outcomes, and it is a singularly effective way to lose fat in stubborn areas. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Losing Fat is Harder

Exercise and a healthy diet often cannot improve contours in the areas in which your body stores fat. In a majority of cases, stubborn fat tends to occur in one specific area. It is always there, it can lead to depression and anxiety which many people know about it. A century from now no one will be overweight unless they choose to be since there will be methods anyone could lose the fat or never allow it to appear on their bodies but this is another topic.

The number of fat cells in the body cannot be reduced by diet or exercise. The loss or gain of weight does not impact this aspect as fat cells cannot disappear with weight loss, but only their size or volume can increase or decrease. On weight gain, the fat cells become larger, while weight loss makes them shrink.

Effectively, an individual can exercise regularly and lose weight. However, this cannot change the number of fat cells in areas such as love handles (flanks), thighs, abdomen, or upper arms.

CoolSculpting Focuses on Fat Loss (Not Weight Loss)

The cryolipolysis technology forms the basis of CoolSculpting. This technology enables the treatment provider to freeze the fat cells in a particular area without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. The fat cells freeze permanently and are eliminated over a period of time, which reduces their overall number. This leads to permanent fat loss resulting in a sleeker and sculpted body.

The patient can still gain weight after a CoolSculpting procedure. The ability to maintain outcomes is dependent on the patient’s diet, health, and lifestyle. The difference with a CoolSculpting treatment is that it enables an equitable distribution of weight throughout the body, and not just the treated region.

Permanent Fat Removal

In a majority of the cases, patients can experience a total fat reduction of around 20 percent from this treatment. The outcomes will establish in approximately 3 to 4 months after a CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting device can selectively target fat cells, which eventually die out. The body permanently re-absorbs the dead fat cells. Permanent fat removal is one of the highlights of the CoolSculpting treatment. Once the fat cells are eliminated, they cannot regenerate in an adult.

However, it is essential for patients to understand that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise. A well-balanced diet and a good fitness regimen are vital to maintaining a slim and contoured body.

Lose Fat to Become Healthy

Weight loss can make an individual appear as a relatively smaller version of their original self. This can happen because there may be no muscle tone beneath the skin. Therefore, fat loss and gaining muscles is essential to look and feel healthy and fit. Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and towns in this part of The Golden State for CoolSculpting.

Preparing For CoolSculpting Body Contouring

Preparing For CoolSculpting Body Contouring

Any special advance preparation may not be necessary for the CoolSculpting procedure. But it is vital that the patient is in good health and within a reasonably range of their optimal body weight.Preparing For CoolSculpting Body Contouring

The ideal candidate for a CoolSculpting procedure is healthy, fit, and looking for a non-surgical solution to eliminate their fat bulges.

As the cooling and suction technique that is used in CoolSculpting to freeze the fat can lead to some minor bruising, it is recommended to refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin before the procedure.

Continuing with a regular exercise and fitness regimen before the procedure can help patients to achieve more effectively outcomes with CoolSculpting. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities in this part of SoCal.

Treatment Day

The time taken to complete a treatment session of CoolSculpting varies from one patient to another, but it may typically take a little less than an hour. The applicator should not be taken out for at least 40 minutes after being attached to the patient’s body in order to lose fat. Patients should wear loose fitting clothes that allow easy access to the treatment areas.

Tips for Preparation

Understand the process and create a list of questions

For your first CoolSculpting treatment session, the provider will address any questions that you may have before commencing the procedure. Make sure that you utilize this time to raise your concerns regarding the treatment. It is vital to gauge the benefits of the treatment and form realistic expectations from this treatment. Accurate advice from the treatment provider can help you prepare better and make informed choices.

Keep yourself entertained

Remember to get something with you to keep engaged and entertained during the CoolSculpting session. During the treatment session, you can read books, watch TV (House of Cards, The Good Wife, 24, The Shield, and so on), or even reply your emails and enjoy social media.

Many patients like to read books or listen to some music during a CoolSculpting session. If you are going to receive multiple procedures at the same time, it could take more time. Therefore, it is always a good idea to keep entertained and relaxed during the procedure.

Important Preparatory Guidelines

  • Avoid tanning the treatment areas as it can increase sensitivity in the skin.
  • Consult with your general physician if you take blood thinner drugs.
  • Ensure that you do not undertake activities which can cause bruises, sores, or cuts in the areas that need to be treated as your session can be moved ahead if the skin in the treatment location is compromised.
  • Avoid smoking to ensure a speedier recovery.
  • Stay hydrated to help your body get rid of toxins and assist in the body-shaping results.

Working people may even schedule their CoolSculpting treatment session during their lunch hour from work. With meticulous preparation and planning they can complete the session swiftly and return to their workplace after the session. Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting Body Contouring Risks And Safety

CoolSculpting Body Contouring 

freeze-the-fatCoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure to improve body contours in specific areas for patients who find it difficult to lose fat with diet and exercise. While the benefits of CoolSculpting are numerous, it is important to be aware of the risks too.

At the time of pre-op consultation, the treatment provider will educate the patient about various aspects of CoolSculpting, including its potential risks. Cordial, perceptive, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other communities and neighborhoods in The Golden State.

FDA Cleared Procedure

During a CoolSculpting procedure, the treatment provider will use special devices to freeze the fat off in targeted areas of the body. Within a few weeks of treatment, these dead fat cells will get naturally broken down and flushed out of the body. The procedure involves no cuts, incisions, needles or medications, which minimizes the risks of the procedure.

The FDA has cleared CoolSculpting as a safe procedure after extensive clinical trials. The procedure involves no major risks or complications. However, certain side effects may occur in a few patients. Therefore, the surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy before recommending CoolSculpting.

Potential Side Effects

Patients should be prepared for the following potential side effects of CoolSculpting:

Tugging Sensation

During CoolSculpting, the treatment provider will place a roll of fat between two cooling panels on the targeted area of the body. This can cause a sensation of tugging or pulling that the patient may have to bear for some time, while the procedure is in progress.

Stinging or Aching

Mild discomfort, stinging, or aching at the treatment site may occur after the treatment. These sensations typically start soon after treatment and may continue to occur intermittently in some cases for up to two weeks after treatment. This may happen because the affected tissue is exposed to intense cold temperatures during CoolSculpting.

Other Common Side Effects

Other common side effects of CoolSculpting may include the following, all confined to the site of treatment:

  • Temporary Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Skin Sensitivity

These transient side effects may occur due to exposure to cold temperatures. In most cases, the side effects will dissipate naturally within a few days. No special treatment may be necessary. In any case, CoolSculpting is designed to treat the affected areas using controlled temperatures, and will not cause severe problems such as frostbite.

Rare Risk

A very rare risk of CoolSculpting may be paradoxical adipose hyperplasia around the treated area. In this condition, the fat cells at the site grow bigger rather than shrinking in size. Although the risk is only cosmetic and not physically harmful, the condition may require a revision procedure as it will not resolve on its own.

Who is not a Candidate?

Individuals suffering from the following disorders should avoid CoolSculpting to be on the safe side:

  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Cold Agglutinin Disease
  • Paroxysmal Cold Hemoglobulinuria

CoolSculpting Body Contouring Procedure Steps

CoolSculpting Body Contouring Procedure Steps | Beverly Hills Med SpaFor several years now, CoolSculpting has ranked among the most sought-after non-invasive body sculpting procedures in the US. CoolSculpting enables a patient to lose fat without a single cut or incision or causing any damage to the skin.

During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss the steps involved in CoolSculpting process.

Although the CoolSculpting technology is path-breaking, the procedure itself is fairly straightforward. The patient should make a final choice after carefully understanding the procedure and evaluating their options. Fantastic, salient, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other cities and towns in this part of California

 

Initial Consultation

A detailed one-on-one consultation with the CoolSculpting clinician will be the first step in the CoolSculpting procedure. The expert will explain to the patient how CoolSculpting will freeze the fat off to eliminate unwanted fat cells, and create slimmer body contours in the treated areas. Together with the patient, they will identify the targeted areas where fat elimination with CoolSculpting will help.

 

Treatment Session

One treatment session of CoolSculpting may last for about 45 minutes. Most patients may require three to six treatment sessions spread over several weeks to achieve optimal results. The patient will be made to comfortably sit in a recliner during the treatment session. No anesthesia will be required. The patient can take a short nap or stay awake and read a book or use a mobile device to relax if they want.

 

Procedure

Once the treatment provider has marked the area to be treated during a particular session, the CoolSculpting device will be placed over the area to apply controlled cooling. The application will include a gel pad and a specialized applicator. Vacuum applicators will be used to draw the tissue into the applicator cup. The applicator will be secured to the treatment site and deliver focused cooling to the stubborn fat tissue in the marked area.

The cooling focus will be precise and will not affect the surrounding healthy tissue. The patient may initially feel intensely cold, but this feeling will quickly subside as the treated area starts becoming numb. Mild pinching, pulling or tugging in the treated area may be felt because of the vacuum process to draw fatty tissue to the applicator cup.

 

Innovative Applicators

CoolMini applicator is now available to eliminate stubborn fat pockets in hard to reach areas such as below the chin. If the treatment provider’s office is equipped with the full range of CoolSculpting applicators, they can treat even such areas that may not be treated with the traditional CoolSculpting vacuum based applicator.

With an advanced CoolSmooth applicator tip, it is now possible to eliminate fat cells even in areas that are not ‘pinchable’. For instance, if the patient wants to enhance the contour in an area such as the outer thigh, which may have a thin layer of cellulite, the applicator tip can simply be run over the affected area to achieve the desired smooth contour.

Kind, judicious, and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting for the Inner and Outer Thigh

CoolSculpting for the Inner and Outer Thigh | Beverly Hills Medical SpaCoolSculpting is a leading, FDA cleared body contouring procedure to provide non-surgical fat reduction in specific areas of the body. CoolSculpting can freeze the fat away with its patented one-of-a-kind technology known as cryolipolysis. Patients do not have to go through any cuts, incisions, needles or medications with the safe cooling process involved in this procedure.

Inner and outer thighs are among the areas that can be effectively treated for fat reduction to create a slimmer lower body appearance. Stubborn fat cells typically accumulate in the thigh area, and it can be difficult to eliminate them with diet and exercise. This is where CoolSculpting comes in.

Marvelous, poignant, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Cleared by the FDA for Thigh Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq was cleared by the FDA in 2014 for fat reduction in the inner and outer thighs. That is when the manufacturer Zeltiq began promoting the procedure as a promising non-invasive solution to spot-reduce inner and outer thigh fat by 20 to 25 percent in three months.

During the FDA trials, as many as 86 percent of the patients reported a visible reduction in their thigh fat within four months after undergoing the CoolSculpting procedure to lose fat. A single treatment session of CoolSculpting can last for about 45 minutes, and one inner or outer thigh may be treated during one session. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve completed desired results.

A growing number of patients now seek what is popularly known as a ‘thigh gap’. CoolSculpting has emerged as a treatment of choice to create an inner thigh gap. Treatment providers as well as patients mostly give a favorable feedback for CoolSculpting as an ideal non-invasive treatment for thigh fat. Unlike liposuction, lasers, or other aggressive procedures, CoolSculpting is gentle on the skin and causes minimal to no discomfort or downtime.

 

How does it Work?

Fat cells in the inner thighs and other fat tissue sites are more vulnerable to damage by freezing temperature than other healthy cells, including nerves, blood vessels and bone in the surrounding areas. Targeted treatment with CoolSculpting will cause selective destruction of unwanted fat cells via a process called apoptosis.

The frozen fat cells will slowly disintegrate and get eliminated from the area through the natural metabolic process. This will leave the patient with slimmer, more youthful and natural looking inner and outer thighs.

 

CoolFit Applicator

A specialized CoolFit applicator is often used to create customized fat reduction in the thighs. Some patients may require two applicators on each side depending on the fat distribution. The second applicator will be placed usually toward the back of the inner thigh to improve contour all over. Best outcomes are usually obtained when the same area is re-treated in about four weeks.

Women are usually considered more prone to stubborn fat deposits in inner and outer thighs, but the problem can also occur in men. CoolSculpting can work with equal efficiency for both women and men. Accomplished and terrific cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other cities and towns in part of the country for CoolSculpting.

Possible CoolSculpting Side Effects

Possible CoolSculpting Side Effects | Beverly Hills Medical SpaCoolSculpting is one of the safest non-invasive procedures designed to reduce stubborn fat in certain pockets of the body. This FDA cleared procedure involves a unique cooling process that will freeze the fat without any cuts, incisions, needles, or medications.

While CoolSculpting involves minimal risk, some patients will experience a few mild side effects for a temporary period. The treatment provider will apprise the patient of these side effects during the initial consultation. The dedicated and focused Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this area of the country.

 

Common Side Effects

Tugging or Pulling Sensation

During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treatment provider will place a roll of fat between two cooling panels on the area where the patient needs to lose fat. This can create a mild sensation of tugging or pulling for some time. A single CoolSculpting treatment session may only take about 45 minutes, so the patient will not be required to put up with the feeling for long.

 

Stinging or Aching

Some patients may experience mild discomfort, or an aching or stinging sensation at the treatment site. These sensations often begin soon after the CoolSculpting treatment, and may last for about two weeks after the treatment. The procedure exposes the targeted areas to intense cold temperature, which may lead to this temporary side effect.

A study from 2015 reviewed the results of people who had overall received 554 crypolipolysis procedures over a period of one year. The review found that any post-treatment discomfort usually lasted for about three to ten days and dissipated on its own.

 

Other Localized Side Effects

The patient may experience redness, bruising, swelling and skin sensitivity in the treatment areas for a temporary period of time. Exposure to cold temperatures can cause these mild effects, which will typically clear on their own after a few days. CoolSculpting targets the fatty tissue just beneath the skin, which results in these side effects. However, CoolSculpting is a safe procedure, and will not cause frostbite.

 

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia

Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia at the treatment site is one of the rare side effects of CoolSculpting. It occurs mostly in men. In this condition, the fat cells in the treated area grow larger rather than becoming smaller. Researchers have not yet determined the precise cause behind this occurrence. Although this side effect is cosmetic in nature and does not cause physical risk, it will not disappear on its own.

 

Who should Avoid CoolSculpting?

Most people can comfortably go through CoolSculpting without any specific risk. However, the treatment may not be suitable for certain people, who suffer from one of the following conditions:

  • Cryoglobulinemia
  • Cold agglutinin disease
  • Paroxysmal cold hemoglobulinuria

Serious complications may occur with CoolSculpting for people with these disorders. The patient should ideally choose a board certified plastic surgeon under whose guidance and supervision CoolSculpting can be safely performed.

Patients should also be aware that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure or a treatment for obesity. Reliable, cordial, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
