Risks of Bargain Hunting When Shopping for a Plastic Surgeon

Risks of Bargain Hunting When Shopping for a Plastic Surgeon

The popular TV program, “Money Smart” by Anchor-Reporter Glen Walker on KTLA 5, invited board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, to educate viewers about the potential risks of bargain hunting when they are looking for plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures. Dr. Motykie strongly recommends people to exercise careful judgment and discretion when opting for any aesthetic procedures from injectables to plastic surgery.

Your Body is Precious

Any procedure that is designed to treat the body or physical appearance is ultimately only medicine. Therefore, choosing a salon or another non-medical facility for such procedures is fraught with obvious risks. Such procedures may sometimes appear to be minor in the beginning, or clever marketing tactics may make patients believe them to be minor, but they can pose risk for the patient’s health as well as looks if they are performed by an individual who is not adequately trained for it.
Dr. Motykie suggests that any procedure that involves the body needs to be performed only by a certified expert with sufficient experience in that particular procedure. Human skin and other body organs are very delicate, and even the slightest mistake can prove to be costly. Sometimes the damage can be long-term or permanent. In many cases, if the procedure goes wrong, the physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime.

Cost of Revision Procedures

If a procedure performed by an unqualified person results in undesirable results, it can cost a lot more money to fix it. Multiple revision procedures may be required, and typically a revision surgery will cost more than the primary surgery because of the complexities involved. In any case, revision surgeries are no guarantee of full recovery from the damage caused in the first place. Therefore, patients ought to consider the risk of adverse consequences carefully before they choose to opt for alluring bargain deals in aesthetic procedures.

Risk with Botox Bargains

Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the U.S., and clearly, bargain offers abound to cash upon the opportunity in this area. However, patients should be aware that Botox is made from botulinum neurotoxin, which is the most powerful biological substance known to man. It is designed to temporarily paralyze the targeted nerve that is causing a wrinkle. If this potent medication is delivered wrongly or used in wrong dosage, it can cause severe damage to the face.
Only certified and experienced Botox providers at a medical office facility should provide this treatment. Another challenge is that some marketers use Botox bargains just to get the patient into the door in order to sell them more invasive and complicated aesthetic procedures. It is up to the people to apply their own judgment, and not get attracted by the lure of cheap prices.

Science and Art of Cosmetic Procedures

Plastic surgery and lesser invasive procedures are scientific treatments that should ideally be performed in a medical environment where the risk of infection, bio-sanitary risks, and pre- and post-procedure risks are adequately addressed. Secondly, aesthetic procedures are an art, and not just a technical skill. Cheaper deals in such procedures can prove to be a lot more expensive in the end.

Juvederm Before and After Photos

Juvederm Before and After Photos

juvederm voluma before and after photojuvederm voluma before and after picture

Patients who may be considering a non-surgical injectable cosmetic filler treatment such as Juvederm for the first time may need to know what kind of results to expect from this treatment. An experienced medical spa will provide Juvederm before and after photographs to the patients for this purpose. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations can have access to these pictures at Dr. Motykie’s medspa.
What are Juvederm Before and After Pictures?
Before and after images in case of Juvederm injectable gel treatment refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same treatment successfully. The pictures include images taken prior to the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when full effects of Juvederm have appeared.
These pictures are taken discreetly and with the consent of the patient. The goal of the treatment provider is to use these photos as a visual tool to educate new patients about how Juvederm injections may impact their facial appearance.
Some Key Benefits
When a patient visits a medical spa to explore various anti-aging treatment options, they may have only a vague idea about the effectiveness of injectable dermal filler treatments such as Juvederm. Some patients may seek a filler treatment specifically, but may not be sure whether to choose Juvederm or some other filler for best results. In some cases, the medspa may recommend a combination of Juvederm with another aesthetic treatment to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals.
In all these situations, the treatment expert is in a better position to address the patient’s concerns and queries with the help of Juvederm before and after pictures. At Motykie Medical Spa, patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas may visit for a Juvederm consultation and review the before and after photos in order to make an informed choice.
Staying Realistic
In any aesthetic procedure, it is important that the patient should have clear goals, a positive frame of mind, and realistic expectations about the treatment. Sometimes the patient may form wrong expectations about Juvederm treatment despite the best verbal explanations of the treatment provider. This can lead to disappointment later on at the time of final results. Juvederm before and after photos can mitigate this possibility for the benefit of everyone involved.
When a patient knows clear what the Juvederm injections can or cannot do for them, they are in a better position to make an informed decision. Therefore, a reputed medical spa will usually keep a collection of before and after photos for various non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures, including Juvederm.
Posting the Images on the Website
A medical spa with a dedicated website of its own also have the option of providing the before and after photos of various procedures, including Juvederm, on the site. These pictures can be provided in a separate ‘Photo Gallery’ section, which can be accessed from the site home page. A new patient may choose to visit this section from the privacy of their home or office. They may decide to visit the med spa only after they have reviewed the Juvederm before and after pictures online.

Need for Juvederm
Juvederm cosmetic filler treatment is designed to restore natural facial contour, and remove or reduce unwanted wrinkles and lines from the face. Sometimes the treatment may also be applied effectively to augment the lips. At Motykie Medical Spa, patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations may receive this treatment for the following purposes:

  •       Smooth lines around the mouth and nose and minimize nasolabial folds.
  •       Enhance the appearance and shape of lips.
  •       Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes.
  •       Minimize laugh lines.
  •       Add volume to the cheeks to improve the facial contour.

Juvederm is one of the effective solutions to treat static facial lines that continue to show even when the face is still and expressionless. Softer and subtle appearance of lips is also possible with this unique injectable gel treatment.
How does it Work?
Juvederm injectable treatment can be received as an outpatient procedure at a medspa that is qualified and equipped to provide such solutions. The treatment provider will inject the Juvederm gel-based filler directly into the targeted area of the face. Very fine needles will be used for the purpose.
The Juvederm gel will travel to the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate the natural production of collagen. The gel will also make the skin fuller almost instantly by adding volume to the depleted areas of the face. The wrinkles and folds that are caused due to loss of volume will get smoothed out quite naturally.
Biocompatible Treatment
Juvederm filler gel is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the human body. This makes the treatment highly biocompatible, unlike various animal-based dermal fillers available today. Juvederm is a highly safe treatment for most people, and no specific allergy tests are required prior to receiving this treatment.
Hyaluronic acid promotes the production of natural collagen and causes replenishment of lost skin volume gradually. Therefore, people who have experience loss of skin elasticity and volume due to aging or other factors can benefit from Juvederm treatment.
Results and Recovery
Juvederm treatment does not involve any downtime because there are no incisions or other invasive techniques involved. The outcome with this FDA-approved treatment is safe and predictable as long as the treatment is provided by a qualified expert with experience in dermal filler injections. The results are visible almost instantly, but the full effects will continue to develop over the next few days and weeks after the treatment. The results are sustainable for a period of up to one year or even more in certain cases.

Four Weeks Post CoolSculpting, My Experience So Far – Patient Review Los Angeles, CA

A Patient’s Journey of Their Coolsculpting Process…

I’ve always had a layer of pudge on my tummy, which I didn’t really mind pre-kiddos, but the crepe-ing and overall looseness of my skin makes the extra weight really unbearable for me to look at. So it had to go.

I started a series of treatments with Motykie Med Spa in LA both to shrink down the inches and deal with the skin situation. I kicked it off with CoolSculpting (large suction head, lower abdomen) about four weeks ago.The procedure itself was no big deal. Mild discomfort in the beginning, slightly more moderate discomfort towards the end. I was a little claustrophobic, but I took a my prescribed anti-anxiety medication before the procedure and for the most part I was fairly relaxed. (Loved Tricia, she was incredibly soothing.)
