As one of Atlanta’s top plastic surgeons named by the nationally recognized organization Castle Connolly, Dr. John LeRoy is a true expert in his field, especially when it comes to facial rejuvenation. But as much as he loves helping his cosmetic surgery patients on a daily basis with their cosmetic concerns, he also thrives on helping people outside of his practice as well. One way he does this is by educating the public about the field of plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine. As part of this effort, Dr. LeRoy was recently featured as a healthcare expert in Atlanta Magazine’s Wellness Q&A section for September.
The Wellness Q&A section is a special part of Atlanta Magazine dedicated to getting answers to patient’s most common health-related questions from the professionals who can answer them the best. This year, Dr. LeRoy addressed a question that so many of his patients ask: “I want a facelift but I don’t have a month to recover. What are my options?”
We are a culture of busy schedules and full lives, and understandably, nearly all of our cosmetic surgery patients want to achieve their results with as little downtime as possible. The answer to this problem is to opt for the more convenient approach of using minimally invasive procedures incrementally over time. This provides the benefit of less recovery time while also keeping results looking natural. Dr. LeRoy does this using a specific procedure that he developed called the Band Aid Mini Facelift. Inspired by his residency with the prestigious and world-renowned surgeons at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York, he developed this specialized surgery using minimally invasive techniques. In addition to reducing the recovery time by as much as half, the Band Aid Mini Facelift costs significantly less than a traditional facelift because it’s performed in-office using gentle numbing. Dr. LeRoy developed the surgery in 1997 and has performed it for over 5,000 patients throughout the past 20 years with tremendous results.
Over the years, Dr. LeRoy has also applied the principles and techniques of the Band Aid Mini Facelift to other popular surgeries as well, creating a full line of procedures including the Band Aid Brow Lift, Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing, Band Aid Skin Tightening, Band Aid Liposuction, Band Aid Eyelid Surgery and Band Aid Tummy Tuck. He recently took it a step further with his new Band Aid Micro Mini Facelift. This procedure, an even milder option than the original Band Aid Facelift, is primarily used to treat the new signs of aging that have arisen three to four years after a patient’s face lift.
For patients who are considering plastic surgery, taking the time to learn about their options can be an important step in getting their ideal results and having an easier, smoother surgical process. If you’re considering a cosmetic surgery and want to minimize your recovery time and cost while achieving a noticeable but natural-looking result, schedule a consultation with Dr. John LeRoy to learn more.
