Tummy Tuck: Don’t Put It Off Any Longer

Tummy Tuck SpecialA tummy tuck, formally known as an abdominoplasty, restores your shape and appearance after giving birth, menopause, the natural aging process, or weight loss. This body-contouring procedure will help give you back the body you remember as it addresses excess skin and fat. A tummy tuck is great for any adult looking to specifically target the abdomen and contour their body in this region. Our August Special includes a free bikini laser hair removal series (LHR) with your tummy tuck purchase.

Tummy Tuck

We can improve the abdominal area through abdominoplasty, also referred to as a tummy tuck. With a tummy tuck we’re addressing several key areas in the abdomen.  A main complaint for most patients is excess skin. We address that through a low bikini line incision, allowing us to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Many times the abdominal muscles get stretched apart after childbirth and won’t respond to exercise. With a tummy tuck we’re able to tighten the muscles and pull them together. Tummy tuck results can last for many years, and even longer with a great diet and exercise routine.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal (LHR) reduces unwanted hair permanently using a laser. Hair growth patterns change with age. Whether it’s hair you’ve always had, or hair you’ve acquired over time, LHR could be an option for you. The laser works on follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of the treatment, so several treatments are necessary to get the follicles during their growth phase. Most areas require 3 to 6 treatments, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Optimal long-term benefits depend on hair thickness, the area treated, and the natural growth cycle of the hair.

The laser uses the transfer of energy in the form of the laser light. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light and converts it to heat. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cell from producing new hair. Simply put, the laser causes localized damage to the hair by selectively heating the dark pigment in the follicle, leaving the rest of the skin untouched. Treatment areas include face, legs, arms, underarms, back, bikini line, nipples and chest.

Mommy Makeover to Restore your Shape

Dr. Gregory Pisarski's Mommy Makeover May Special
Mommy Makeover Special

Our Mommy Makeover will give you back the body you remember before your childbearing days. We all know the truths of motherhood. We love those babies to the moon and back, but they really change our bodies. Treat yourself to body-contouring enhancements to restore your shape and appearance after giving birth, menopause, or weight loss. The most common procedures requested as a Mommy Makeover include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), Smartlipo or liposuction, and breast augmentation or lift.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck):

We improve the abdominal area through abdominoplasty, also referred to as a tummy tuck. With a tummy tuck we’re addressing several key areas in the abdomen.  A main complaint for most patients is excess skin. We address that through a low bikini line incision, allowing us to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Many times the abdominal muscles get stretched apart after childbirth and won’t respond to exercise. With a tummy tuck, we’re able to tighten the muscles and pull them together.

Smartlipo:

If a patient’s main concern is excess fat in an area with just a small amount of skin laxity, Smartlipo is a wonderful option. It also has the benefit of an easy recovery with minimal downtime because it’s minimally invasive. Sometimes after a tummy tuck, hips may look a little fuller and we address that with Smartlipo in the hip area, pubic area, and the lower abdomen. Smartlipo helps recontour the whole abdominal area to be flatter and tighter, with a shapelier waistline.

Breast Augmentation & Lift:

With breast augmentation we’re able to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. We offer both saline and silicone implants, in a variety of shapes and textures. We use measurements and the analysis of body shape to help determine which implants to use, and where to place them. Breast augmentation can also be performed in conjunction with a breast lift. A lift raises and firms the breasts, creating a more pleasing and youthful breast contour.

If you have questions regarding these procedures, or if you’d like to come in and see us, please contact us to schedule your Mommy Makeover consultation. We offer both virtual and in-person consultations for your convenience. Follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-the-minute on Special Events, Promotions, and Giveaways. 979-297-9289

ThermiVa® Vaginal Rejuvenation: What’s Not to Love?

Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVaFebruary is all about love, which is a perfect time for ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation. What better way to show love than self-care for our feminine health? Women of all ages benefit from this non-surgical, no-downtime procedure using radio frequency energy. This treatment has been called life-changing by women, as well as a boost to self-esteem and confidence. ThermiVa treats symptoms of childbirth by tightening the vaginal canal and stretched labia. It reduces dryness for post-menopausal women and improves urinary control.  No surgery, no hormones, and no downtime. What’s not to love?

How does ThermiVa work?

ThermiVa tightens tissue and restores sensitivity to the labia and vagina. In turn, this improves urinary control, increases vaginal moisture, and decreases discomfort during intercourse. Using temperature controlled radio frequency heat, the vaginal tissue is stimulated to produce new collagen and tighten tissue. Just like the collagen in our facial skin, it decreases as we age. The support structure to our skin starts to weaken. This is weakened further by childbirth. By producing new collagen, ThermiVa adds softer and thicker skin. It also increases moisture both internally and externally. This means an improvement in both appearance and function for you.

Whether you’re interested in improving the cosmetic appearance of your female anatomy, reducing discomfort from dryness, or the inconvenience of reduced urinary control, ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation is the confidence boost you need. Treatments are about 30 minutes. We recommend a series of 3. No anesthesia is required. Patients report a feeling of gentle warmth.  Call today to discuss a ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation treatment plan for you. During February, we’re offering a free Clear + Brilliant Treatment with your Mommy Makeover purchase—show your skin some self-love too! Call to schedule your complimentary consultation at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery today. Schedule through our website as well. We offer both in-person and virtual consultations for your convenience. 979-297-9289

THERMIsmooth®Body for a Smooth You

Plastic Surgery in Lake Jackson, TX

Are you seeking a smoother, more youthful look? Consider ThermiSmooth, a non-surgical option at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery. This treatment rejuvenates aging skin by firming, tightening, and toning. It improves skin laxity, and reduces crepiness. ThermiSmooth is quick, gentle, and involves no downtime.

The ThermiSmooth treatment topically uses radio frequency (RF) energy and heat that is gently delivered via a smooth temperature-controlled hand piece on the surface of the skin. The heat is directed to the dermis, which means it doesn’t create any damage on the skin’s surface. Therein lies a major benefit of ThermiSmooth—no downtime or recovery. You can typically resume normal activities the day of your treatment. The skin begins to tighten, and the effects of aging are reduced. It is very effective for improving the overall appearance of the treated area. ThermiSmooth Body targets problem areas such as abdomen, thighs, muffin top, lovehandles, and more.

Although ThermiSmooth can be done as a single treatment, we typically recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced about 3 to 4 weeks apart. Most patients will see some results after the first treatment, with full results developing at 3 to 6 months.

We are offering a FREE ThermiSmooth Series with your tummy tuck purchase this month. Call to schedule your consultation at (979) 297-9289. LIKE us on Facebook to stay current with our promotions and specials.

What Makes Smartipo™ So Smart?

Breast Augmentation in Lake Jackson, TX

Smartlipo and liposuction have a major benefit in common, both procedures remove unwanted fat in those stubborn areas where we just can’t shed the bulges and provide contour to the body. These procedures have been available for years, backed by research and clinical studies. However, there’s an important distinction that sets Smartlipo apart and makes it ‘so smart.’ It’s a laser-assisted liposuction procedure, and the action of the laser provides many benefits to the patient including dramatic results. Whether Dr. Greg Pisarski is whittling the waist, slimming the arms, or thinning the thighs, Smartlipo is the best liposuction option to achieve the shape you desire.

 

Smartlipo is a very efficient form of removing unwanted fat from your trouble spots, plus it significantly tightens the skin by combining three different laser wavelengths. The fat is melted and removed in a liquid state. Traditional liposuction removes fat in its solid state. Think of fat like Jell-O. When Jell-O is heated, it turns to a liquid and is easily sucked through a straw. When Jell-O is in a solid state, if you tried to suck it through a straw it would leave divots and inconsistencies. This is the perfect analogy for removing fat that is in a liquid form from the laser action. Since liquified fat is removed easily as compared to solid fat, this means a smoother result for the patient and less bruising and bleeding. Less bruising and bleeding then translates into minimal downtime for the patient.

 

The laser is also our ‘rockstar’ when it comes to skin tightening. The laser is inserted under the skin through a very tiny incision, so tiny that it doesn’t even require stitches. Smartlipo tightens the skin through coagulation. It stimulates your own collagen which helps to tighten skin and improve elasticity by 57%. (Aesthetic Surgery Journal) Our collagen serves as the ‘building blocks’ of our skin and decreases as we age causing skin laxity. Smartlipo promotes that collagen to strengthen.

 

Smartlipo is an awake procedure that does not require general anesthesia. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we can treat multiple areas including abs, flanks, inner and outer thighs, arms, back and neck. Interested in a consultation to determine if laser-assisted liposuction is right for you? Contact us, we’d love to see you.  Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and check out our Smartlipo special for March. 979-297-9289

Breast Augmentation in Lake Jackson, TX

gravity on your knees, stomach, arms or back? Dr. Pisarski can tighten and lift these areas using radio frequency energy non-surgically. ThermiTight® uses temperature controlled radio frequency heat which stimulates new collagen to rally and remodel the skin. This results in a more youthful you!

Science Behind ThermiTight®

This technology works by delivering a controlled, intense burst of heat triggering your body’s own rejuvenation process and inducing skin tightening, reduction of wrinkles, and the improvement of body contouring. Radio frequency energy is also used to heat the fat layer under the skin causing the release of fat cells and inducing shrinkage of the fat cells. This ultimately leads to volume reduction and improvement in the outer tissue appearance. With the Thermi technology Dr. Pisarski is able to control the temperature of the heat and keep it perfectly targeted for maximum results, while still protecting the outer layers of the skin. This results in a speedier healing process.

What to Expect

The ThermiTight® procedure is minimally invasive. We use a local anesthetic in the area to keep you comfortable. A very tiny probe is inserted through a very small incision. The incision is so small it doesn’t require stitches. The probe does the work underneath the skin’s surface, sending out radiofrequency heat and energy. This disrupts fat pockets and melts them, and stimulates the collagen. Depending on the number of treated areas, the procedure takes an average of an hour. Throughout the procedure the Thermal Image Guidance provides constant feedback for patient safety.

You may experience slight swelling or redness and mild soreness that will subside over the next couple of days post procedure. Following your ThermiTight®, you can leave the office and immediately resume your everyday routine. Results are often noticed immediately, with maximum effects seen after 6-12 weeks. Collagen production is increased and skin elasticity is improved. If you’re nervous about invasive surgery, or you don’t have time in your schedule for lengthy recovery, ThermiTight® is perfect for you. Come in to Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery for a consultation and we’ll discuss your skin-tightening goals. Based on your skin laxity and texture, we’ll make our treatment recommendation for you. During August, we’re offering free ThermiTight® with your Tummy Tuck purchase. Call today to schedule your consultation at 979-297-9289.

Never Let Them See you Frown with Dysport®/Botox®

Neck Lift in Lake Jackson, TX

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important. A refresh to tired eyes or a lined forehead might be just the perfect pick-me-up to replace a frown and mirror that you’re feeling happy on the inside. A Dysport or Botox treatment is an easy way to lift brows and lose the lines without downtime. You won’t have to take a hiatus from your busy lifestyle, and you can look as good as you feel!

Dysport and Botox are well-known products manufactured by different companies. Both products use botulinum toxin, also referred to as neuromodulators, and are very comparable. Much like the difference between Coke and Pepsi, it’s a preference by the patient or by Dr Pisarski for the patient’s desired result.

The repetition of muscle contractions create the wrinkles that patients like to reduce. Over time, squinting and smiling results in crows’ feet, forehead lines, and lines between brows. Injected Dysport and Botox both diminish the appearance of these lines, and provide a subtle lift to the brow. These toxins temporarily block muscle contractions, which causes the muscles to relax. Relaxed muscles aren’t able to respond to nerve impulses. This results in eyes that look refreshed and awake, and a smooth forehead.

With a skilled injector like Dr. Pisarski, Dysport gives you a youthful, natural result. As we say in the aesthetic world, fresh not frozen! Come in for a consultation and we’ll customize a treatment plan for your desired result. Follow us on Facebook for special Facebook-only promotions on Dysport and more. This month only we’re offering free Dysport with your PrecisionTx Underarm Treatment to reduce embarrassing underarm sweat.

Smartlipo™ vs Liposuction: What’s the Difference?

Breast Augmentation in Lake Jackson, TX

Are you stressing about summer swimwear, and considering liposuction to feel your best this summer?  If you’re feeling like you have extra fat and diet and exercise don’t seem to be doing the trick, Smartlipo may be for you!  What’s the difference between traditional liposuction and Smartlipo? Let’s talk about the benefits of laser-assisted liposuction.

Smartlipo is an easier way of removing unwanted fat. The laser melts fat cells to a liquid state. At the same time, the laser action tightens and firms the skin in the treated area.  Smartlipo patients will see immediate results, and experience less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction patients.  This translates to minimal downtime, especially since only tiny incisions and local anesthesia are used.

Traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia.  A laser is not used, so the fat is removed in a non-liquid state by physical manipulation. Patients typically experience significant downtime, with increased swelling, bruising, and bleeding. Patients have a higher risk of ridges and ripples in the appearance of the treated area. Since a laser is not used, skin tightening does not occur with traditional liposuction.

Dear Dr P: ‘What is the Downtime with Smartlipo™?’

Breast Augmentation in Lake Jackson, TX

Q: I would like to have Smartlipo on my outer thighs, a stubborn area that is not responding to losing weight and working out. The problem is that I can’t take a lot of time off from work. I also work out in the gym 5 times a week. What is the downtime and recovery like?

A: Smartlipo is a great option for people who are not significantly overweight and complain of unwanted areas of localized fat. The outer thighs or “saddle bags” are a common complaint for women. Smartlipo can also treat other areas of the body including the upper arms, male breasts, abdomen, love handles, back, and knees.

Following Smartlipo, rest and relaxation are recommended. You will wear a compression garment 24/7 for 2 weeks and then will slowly wean off it over the next few weeks. Gradually, normal activities are resumed. Many patients have the procedure on a Thursday and are back to work on Monday. You won’t be able to exercise for approximately 2 weeks and when you return to it, you will need to gradually build back up to your normal program. Temporary bruising, swelling and discomfort of the treated areas are normal for a few weeks.

Smartlipo is performed under local anesthetic in the office. In Smartlipo, a laser placed under the skin melts the fat cells and destroys them. The melted fat is then gently suctioned out.  Smartlipo also induces collagen production – which leaves the skin tighter. There is significantly less bleeding, swelling and bruising than with traditional liposuction.

The results are visible immediately; and your shape will continue to improve over a period of several months. Because the procedure permanently destroys the fat, only one treatment is necessary. If you are interested in this procedure, please call my patient counselor Carly to set up a consultation. For more information, visit our website at www.PisarskiMD.com.
