Minimally-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures on the Rise

Over the course of 2012, some of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures from 2011 saw a decrease, according to the 2012 statistics from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Why? It could be due to the 6% jump in minimally-invasive, in-office procedures performed in 2012, of which over 13 million were performed. Though natural-looking results can be achieved by surgical procedures such as traditional facelifts and blepharoplasty, many people seek procedures with less potential for complications—a factor in any surgery—accompanied by minimal downtime and quicker results. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy has built his practice around his innovative Band Aid procedures, which all combine advanced techniques with subtle, yet effective results.

Minimally-invasive surgical procedures such as these lead the findings in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s (AAFPRS) latest report, where 37% of respondents stated they were performing more non-surgical procedures to delay surgical ones.

Another popular procedure for those seeking minimally- invasive plastic surgery is Band Aid Skin Tightening. This procedure utilizes Protégé technology and a unique Energy Flow Control (EFC) system to maximize patient comfort during treatment. Band Aid Skin Tightening differs from other non-surgical skin firming treatments because it does not require any anesthesia or downtime and is very effective in reducing skin laxity and the appearance of age-telling fine lines and wrinkles of the face, neck, and chin.
