There has been a great deal of publicity surrounding noninvasive procedures and their benefits. From a media perspective, they make great human interest stories because it sounds so easy and after all the results are dramatic, (so they tell us). A recent article in the Los Angeles Times highlighted once again the popularity of these procedures. According to the article 83% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the offices of cosmetic plastic surgeons in 2010 were nonsurgical, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery — and the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery reports a similar trend. What does that mean in terms of volume? Almost 8 million nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were performed last year at a cost of $4.1 billion dollars. Dr. Stuart Kincaid stresses to his patients the value of not only noninvasive procedures, but the advantage of his expertise as board-certified plastic surgeon to offer both non invasive and surgical options based on a patient’s expectation. For example, a patient who has had children and has a significant amount of loose and lax skin would not be a good candidate for liposuction only or a noninvasive form of liposuction if her expectation is to have a flatter stomach. Dr. Stuart Kincaid is able to offer her an abdominoplasty, which will give her a flat stomach as well as liposuction to enhance her waist. The misunderstandings happen when patients present themselves for solutions that are noninvasive only and their expectation is to look dramatically better. Even though the patient may explain that they do not have time for an extended recovery and that they understand the results will not be dramatic, once they have invested thousands of dollars it is difficult to lower their expectations. The advantage is that Dr. Stuart Kincaid offers expert surgical and non surgical options, and can therefore make realistic recommendations. Dr. Stuart Kincaid offers a full range of facial injectables including Botox,Juvederm, and Restylane. He also offers Sculptra ( also known as the liquid facelift). Dr. Stuart Kincaid is an expert and featured physician for the Liquid Facelift Association. Dr. Stuart Kincaid prides himself on a detailed initial consultation with the goal of understanding a patient’s expectations and giving them realistic options for achieving them.
