Marina Del Rey, CA (PRWEB) April 8, 2011
Dr. Grant Stevens of Marina Plastic Surgery (http://www.marinaplasticsurgery.com) is seeing a rise in the popularity of facial plastic surgery procedures such as eyelid surgery and facelift in Los Angeles, but his practice is also seeing a dramatic jump in the number of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures being performed. These nonsurgical procedures meet the demands of patients' busy schedules while helping them look their best and allowing them to remain on-the-go.
"My Los Angeles plastic surgery patients choose from a wide range of procedures," says Dr. Stevens, "and more and more, these procedures have nothing to do with 'going under the knife.' I find that many of my patients are looking to balance their surgical options with nonsurgical ones. To that end, JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE® offer benefits similar to those of a surgical facelift, but with significantly reduced downtime and greater ease of treatment."
JUVÉDERM® is a modern dermal filler known for its flexibility. An injectable gel that fills in lines, wrinkles and facial hollows, its effects last for up to a year before retreatment is necessary. RADIESSE®, formerly known as Radiance, is another gel filler that can provide wrinkle treatment and volume enhancement that lasts a year or more.
"For people with well-defined wrinkles or creases who want a 'nonsurgical face lift,' we offer the latest injectable fillers," explains Dr. Stevens. "The fillers available today are light-years beyond collagen and other fillers from several decades ago. Treatment is easier, the results can be better tailored, and the span between follow-up treatments has been extended. While the science has not yet evolved enough to make surgical facelifts obsolete, our patients can achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance in just one short office visit."
Injectable fillers can rejuvenate multiple problem areas like smile lines, vertical lip lines and facial hollows. They can be used instead of – or in addition to – facial surgery procedures.
"A nonsurgical procedure isn't going to be right for everyone," adds Dr. Stevens. "In some cases, only a surgical procedure will be able to provide the degree of tightening and lifting that a patient will need in order to achieve the results they really want. But even in these cases, it's increasingly common to combine a plastic surgery procedure with injectables for that added level of enhancement and long-term, youthful-looking results."
In addition to facial sculpting procedures, Dr. Stevens is widely recognized for excellence in breast and body enhancement, performing procedures including Los Angeles tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation. His knowledge and experience have been recognized by the Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today and other national newspapers. He has also been featured in professional journals and dozens of highly respected women's and men's magazines, such as: Men's Fitness, Health & Fitness, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and ELLE.
