Dr. John LeRoy is best known throughout Atlanta for specializing in facial plastic surgery and for his original line of Band Aid cosmetic procedures. But, as many new patients ask, what exactly is Band Aid plastic surgery and what makes it different?
Simply put, Band Aid procedures are modified cosmetic surgeries (and, in a few cases, modified non-surgical treatments) that are less invasive than their more traditional counterparts. For example, the Band Aid Facelift uses smaller incisions than the traditional facelift and, through specialized surgical techniques, produces results that look especially natural while minimizing scarring and recovery time. Plus, all of Dr. LeRoy’s Band Aid procedures can be performed in-office with gentle numbing, which lowers the risks and costs that accompany a traditional surgery and general anesthesia.
Part of the reason why Band Aid cosmetic surgery has become so popular is because it employs a new philosophy and strategy which is well-aligned with most patients’ lifestyles. A traditional plastic surgery requires considerable recovery time and expense, and typically it only seems to be “worth it” to patients if they’re correcting a concern that is a rather significant burden on their appearance. Band Aid procedures, on the other hand, require far less patient commitment, so they’re less of a disruption to daily life and more accessible to patients who, for instance, have moderate facial aging they want to improve. Band Aid Facelift patients can also choose non-surgical procedures like Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing to address new signs of aging that arise in the years following their surgery or to minimize existing imperfections like sun damage or acne scars. This combination helps patients to remain more consistently happy with their appearance long-term without the need for an extensive, traditional operation.
While the Band Aid Facelift is highly popular, Dr. LeRoy also offers minimally-invasive plastic surgeries that target other areas of the face (such as Band Aid Eyelid Surgery and the Band Aid Brow Lift) as well as the body (like the Band Aid Tummy Tuck and Band Aid Liposuction).
