Non-Surgical Popularity Continues to Grow

Minimally invasive procedures provide effective aesthetic results without surgery or downtime, and at a greatly reduced upfront cost compared to surgery. It's no wonder they maintained their popularity in 2017. Here are the top 5, ranked by how many treatments were reported by ASPS surgeons in 2017:

ASPS reports a grand total 15.7 million minimally invasive treatments performed last year. In Nevada, a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment can be a great way to prep for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons. Because downtime is minimal to non-existent, you can get back to your routine quickly. And if you arrange your appointment soon, you'll be ready for your summer vacation with your results ready to go.

More Women Getting Breast Reductions

Breast reduction increased significantly in 2017, by 11 percent compared to the previous year, with nearly 44,000 procedures performed. Prior to that, the procedure had been experiencing slight decreases from year to year. So what could be the explanation? It's impossible to know for sure. But we do know that breast reduction can have considerable benefits for women living with the discomfort caused by excessively large and heavy breasts, such as:

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Discomfort while exercising and being active
  • Emotional discomfort tied to the way your bust looks in tops and dresses
  • Emotional discomfort tied to difficulty finding flattering clothes that fit you well
  • Physical discomfort caused by chafing or rashes beneath your breasts
  • Physical discomfort caused by bra straps digging into your shoulders

Plastic surgery results in Las VegasPerhaps in 2017 women were better informed about the benefits of breast reduction, and the possibility of insurance coverage when it is deemed medically necessary. Women deserve to know their options for achieving the body they want, as well as the physical and emotional comfort they deserve. Breast reduction is something you can learn all about during a consultation with Dr. Brown.

Tummy Tucks Back in the Top 5

 In 2017, tummy tuck surgery regained its position in the Top 5 procedures. It had fallen out of that list in 2016. But last year, 2,000 more tummy tucks were performed than were performed in 2016. There were almost 130,000 tummy tucks in 2017.

Tummy tuck surgery can be a great option if you want to reduce excess fat and puffy skin on your abdomen. It can also repair abdominal muscles that have been stretched and separated during pregnancy. A tauter, smooth tummy with improved muscle tone are the results you can expect.

Summer plastic surgery season?“When should I schedule my plastic surgery?” is a common question among patients who are seriously considering a plastic surgery procedure. The simple answer is often: schedule your surgery during the time of year that works best for you.

Summer plastic surgery season?“When should I schedule my plastic surgery?” is a common question among patients who are seriously considering a plastic surgery procedure. The simple answer is often: schedule your surgery during the time of year that works best for you.

Summer may be a great time to undergo plastic surgery because you may have plenty of vacation time available from work for your recovery. It may also be an easy time to arrange for childcare with summer camps and trips to the grandparents.

Fall may be a better season for your surgery if you prefer your children to back in school and temperatures are cooler, allowing for more concealing clothing during your recovery.

Winter is a popular time for cosmetic procedures because bulky winter clothing allows you to recover without revealing swelling or bruising, and you may have extended vacations built into the calendar for recovery time over the holidays.

Some patients prefer Spring for plastic surgery for those very same reasons. Spring holidays can allow recovery time and the more revealing clothing of Summer is not yet in fashion.

Ultimately, scheduling your plastic surgery is a personal choice based on your lifestyle and your needs. There is no one “right time” for surgery, but there are several considerations to think about.

You have decided – this is the year that you take control of your appearance and you know that plastic surgery will help you achieve the enhancements you want in order to feel comfortable and confident with your appearance. But have you done all the research you need to feel comfortable and confident with your procedure? Make sure you understand these key considerations before your surgery.

But have you done all the research you need to feel comfortable and confident with your procedure? Make sure you understand these key considerations before your surgery.

1. Who Is Your Doctor?

You want to more than surface level information about the surgeon you choose. Plastic surgery is an elective procedure, but it is still major surgery. You should thoroughly research your surgeon before selecting him or her. You will want to know:

  • Board Certification. Is your doctor board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? This is a rigorous certification process that ensures your surgeon has undergone extensive training and testing to be a plastic surgeon. Some so-called cosmetic surgeons have not undergone the additional surgical training necessary to become a highly skilled surgeon. Know the difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon.
  • Training and Experience. How long has your doctor been in practice? Does he or she have years of practical surgical experience? How many procedures have they performed like yours? You want to know that your doctor has the experience to give you the natural-looking results you want.
  • Patient Success Stories. How have other patients felt about your doctor? Did they feel comfortable? Did they get all of their questions answered? Are they completely satisfied with their results? If they could do it again, would they choose the same doctor? You can find past patients’ results, and often their success stories, on your doctor’s website. You can also consult RealSelf.com to get other patients’ opinions.
  • Respect in the field. Is your plastic surgeon well respected and recognized as a top doctor? Good surgeons will be recognized by their patients and peers for the work they have done. For example, Dr. Brown is often recognized as a “Top Doctor” or “Best Doctor” by organizations and publications throughout the Las Vegas region.

2. What Are Your Procedure Options?

Whether you want a facelift, tummy tuck, or a breast augmentation, you will have a variety of options with each procedure. You can research these online and in discussion with your friends who have undergone similar procedures, but the best way to get all of your questions answered is to schedule a consultation with your surgeon.

Once you have a basic knowledge of what your options are, you can ask your surgeon more detailed questions about what would be right for your body. For example, if you are undergoing breast augmentation, you have several options when it comes to implants. Should you get saline or silicone? Should you get a high profile implant? What incision option is best for your implant? Your surgeon can help you make the right choices to achieve the look you want.

3. What Are the Risks and Possible Complications?

Every surgery comes with risk. Knowing what these risks are is simply part of educating yourself about the procedure you choose. In general, there are risks associated with anesthesia and possible infections while healing. With modern technology these risks are slight, but you should still be aware of them. Choosing an experienced board certified plastic surgeon helps reduce the chances of any complications. Talk with your surgeon about any concerns you may have. He or she will discuss your concerns and the precautions taken during surgery and recovery to minimize risk.

4. Where Will Your Surgery Be Performed?

You want to make sure that your surgery will be performed with the highest safest standards in place. Your surgery should be performed in a fully accredited outpatient center or on-site surgical facility with a board certified anesthesiologist, and your doctor should have hospital privileges.

At Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Brown has hospital privileges at St. Rose Dominican Siena and St Rose De Lima Hospital. Dr. Brown has been working as a team with our anesthesiologist since 1996.

5. What Will Recovery Look and Feel Like?

Recovery is different for every person. Our bodies heal at their own rates. But in general, you can expect a certain amount of recovery time for each procedure. For example, major procedures, such as tummy tuck and breast augmentation will require you to limit strenuous activities for about four weeks following surgery. Other less invasive procedures like liposuction will only take several days to a week for the initial stages of healing.

Researching online, talking to other patients about their experiences, and talking with your doctor will help you understand exactly what to expect from the moment you wake up from surgery till the moment you see the final, amazing results.

6. Are You Ready for Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery can dramatically enhance your appearance, but it cannot change your life overnight. Be honest with yourself about your reasons for choosing to undergo a procedure. You should never have plastic surgery because someone else wants you to. Plastic surgery is a way to enhance your own beauty and let it shine through.

During your consultation with Dr. Brown, you will discuss your expectations for surgery. We want you to be completely happy with your results, and part of ensuring that satisfaction is making sure you understand before surgery what results you should expect after surgery.

Have you learned everything you should about your procedure? Are you ready to discuss your options with a highly skilled and experienced surgeon?

During your consultation with Dr. Hayley Brown, you can get all of your questions answered and address any lingering concerns you may have about your procedure. We want you to know that you have made the right decision and be more than satisfied with your results.
