Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the wonderful patients and Atlanta Magazine who helped make last week’s open house a wonderful event! Over the last nineteen years, a lot has changed in the cosmetic and plastic surgery fields. What remains unchanged is the importance of a trusting, open relationship between a plastic surgeon and their patients. It has been my privilege to serve the facial rejuvenation and plastic surgery needs of Atlantans for nearly two decades, and I hope I can continue this honor for some time to come. Please continue to use my website, Facebook, and Twitter profiles as a means to learn more about plastic surgery news and let me know if there is something you’d like to know specifically about.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
Dr. John LeRoy
Everyone’s heard of the popular cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess fat through suctioning cannulas called liposuction, right? Then, you’ve probably also heard that the procedure does require a bit of recovery time. However, if you have small, stubborn fat pockets to get rid of (i.e.- fat pockets above the knee, hips, abdomen, etc.), you may be a candidate for less invasive Band Aid Liposuction.
Like the rest of my Band Aid procedures, Band Aid Liposuction is reserved for patients whose areas of concern do not justify having the full surgery. Also like the rest, Band Aid Liposuction can be performed in-office with only gentle numbing: making recovery time much shorter. Be aware, however, that while most small areas of stubborn fat can be treated with only gentle numbing, larger areas with a lot of nerve endings will require general anesthesia.
Band Aid Liposuction is one of five of my original Band Aid procedures, including: Band Aid Facelift, Band Aid Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), Band Aid Brow Lift and Band Aid Tummy Tuck. Each of these procedures is minimally invasive, so if you’ve been considering plastic surgery, but aren’t sure you require a full procedure, or are looking for a procedure with maximum benefits and minimal downtime, schedule a consultation today.
While a specific surgical plan can only be made after a cosmetic consultation, it’s also helpful to know that many of these minimally invasive procedures can be combined. Similar to Mommy Makeover Surgery in which I often simultaneously perform a breast surgery with liposuction and/or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), some Band Aid Blepharoplasty patients may choose to combine it with a Band Aid Brow Lift for total eye rejuvenation. Band Aid Liposuction patients who are concerned with abdominal fat often have excess abdominal tissue contributing to their esthetic concerns. If these patients only have small amounts of sagging abdominal skin, they may benefit from combining their procedure with a Band Aid Tummy Tuck.
Judging a person’s age is not always easy, but if they have drooping eyelids, it’s much easier. Luckily my blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) patients don’t have to worry about their eyes giving away their true age. A blepharoplasty procedure improves the appearance of aging eyes.
The eyes can show signs of aging a couple of different ways. At times, the upper eyelids begin to sag and produce a hooded appearance remedied with an upper blepharoplasty. Fat pockets on the lower eyelid that cause the eyes to look puffy can be eliminated along with wrinkles using a lower blepharoplasty. However, some patients benefit most from combining both upper and lower blepharoplasty.
Sometimes, this aged eye appearance isn’t caused by excess fat and sagging skin of the eyelid at all, but by wrinkling and excess skin of the forehead. This type of concern can be eliminated with brow lift surgery. During a brow lift, I lift and/or remove excess skin on the brow that contributes to forehead wrinkles and drooping eyebrows.
Some patients are concerned with the appearance of their eyes, but their condition isn’t severe enough to merit the full eyelid procedure. For these patients, I also offer Band Aid Blepharoplasty and Band Aid Brow Lift, which are minimally invasive versions of my traditional blepharoplasty and brow lift. Like the rest of my Band Aid procedures (Band Aid Tummy Tuck, Band Aid Facelift and Band Aid Liposuction), I perform Band Aid Blepharoplasty and Band Aid Brow Lift under gentle numbing (local anesthesia) right in my office.
Without proper training, it’s difficult for patients to know which facial cosmetic surgery will best suit their needs. I often see patients who think they need a blepharoplasty, but actually need a brow lift. Likewise, I see patients who are in a consultation for a traditional facelift, but their signs of aging really only call for a Band Aid Facelift. Therefore, if you’re concerned with the look of your eyes (or any other body part), but aren’t positive which one of these procedures will suit your needs; it’s best to schedule a consultation.
