Fast-Track Your Resolution to Have Your Dream Body

Liposuction, Cincinnati, OH Resolutions have a way of creating immense frustration for most people. You may have experienced the downside of resolution-making so many times that you no longer look at this time of year with the sense of excitement and renewal you once did. If one of the problems has been that you haven’t achieved the results you have wanted in terms of your body, we suggest a new tactic. In our Cincinnati office, one of the things we love to do is help patients bust through the barriers they’ve encountered in a quest for their best body.

Pave a New Path

The usual path that people take when they want to improve their shape is to develop a new diet and exercise habits. This continues to be a popular approach. We can see that by observing the myriad of diet trends that exist today. The problem is, you could spend the entire year trying to decide between Keto and Paleo, a plant-based diet or one that revolves around the caveman style of eating. Every one of us may find a degree of success with certain diet plans. However, even the satisfaction of losing weight may not bring you to the place you really want to be. In that instance, you need a new path, and we’ve got it.

Body Contouring Done Right

It isn’t as though a good exercise program isn’t a good way to slim the body and tone up. However, it may not be the right way for you. What you want is results, not hours and hours in the gym. Results may come more quickly with a little help from your plastic surgeon.

Tumescent liposuction is the procedure that has become popular for eliminating those fat cells that don’t seem to be touched by any normal amount of exercise. This procedure may be performed in an accredited facility with local anesthetic (contained in the tumescent fluid) and IV sedation. Best yet, most patients are able to return to work within a week of their liposuction procedure.

While exercise can do a lot for your body, one thing it cannot do is reconnect muscles that have been severely stretched or separated. Only abdominoplasty can do that, and abdominoplasty should only be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Eat well and exercise so your body can be healthy. To create your dream body, consult with your plastic surgeon. Contact us to schedule your visit with Dr. Krummen at 513.985.0850.

Resolve to Get Back What You’ve Lost

Botox, Cincinnati, OH As much as there is to gain throughout life, there are also losses. With age, you have gained wisdom and insights that only life could teach you. Simultaneously, your body has lost collagen structure and the energy that is required for cellular regeneration. Ultimately, we all tend to lose that youthful vibe we grew to love and appreciate during early adulthood. The fortunate aspect of getting older today is that we can have the best of both worlds. If you’ve resolved to get back a bit of your youthful appearance, we have multiple ways to help you.

Short-Term Gains

Usually, when a person has reached the point where they want to reconnect with their younger self, they appreciate fast results. There is value on the various short-term fixes available today. Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers are immediately affordable. They are convenient; just drive to our Cincinnati office and get treated. They are effective and safe. This makes injectables nearly perfect. The only potential downside is that the results achieved are temporary. Wrinkle-reduction with Botox lasts an average of four months. Dermal fillers, depending on the type and where they are used, can last up to two years.

Long-Term Gains

You might expect us to jump to cosmetic surgery and the permanent improvements that can be achieved with procedures like blepharoplasty or a facelift. Actually, we want to touch on the middle ground. From our experience, we see the benefits of midline treatments; those that work differently than injectables but aren’t as aggressive as surgery. In our office, patients appreciate the results they can achieve with treatments like:

•Microneedling, a collagen induction treatment that encourages the dermis to rejuvenate itself by creating micro-wounds that heal almost immediately.

•Plasma Pen affects the fibroblasts that make collagen. In a short treatment session, this technique creates micro-wounds at the precise depth needed to rebuild a tighter, smoother foundation for the skin.

•PDO Thread Lift treatment can be completed on your lunch hour with nothing more than local anesthetic and a discerning eye. This innovative treatment involves surgical sutures around which superficial tissue adheres. The direction of insertion is performed to gently and naturally lift the skin to appear smoother and younger. Additionally, before the sutures naturally dissolve, their presence provokes a strong response in which collagen remodeling occurs.

Whether you choose a surgical or non-surgical approach, your Cincinnati plastic surgeon Dr. Donna Krummen can help you get back what time has taken from your facial aesthetic. Contact us at 513.985.0850 to schedule your consultation.
