Let’s Talk Tummy Tuck Surgery

Whether performed in conjunction with another procedure or done on its own, a tummy tuck at our Idaho practice provides dramatic and satisfying results for our patients. This surgical procedure, called “abdominoplasty” in medical terms, is highly effective at smoothing skin and removing fatty bulges to reshape the lower abdomen. However, when men and women come in for consultation at Freeman Plastic Surgery, they often don’t know much about abdominoplasty and ask a lot of great questions. Let’s look at some tummy tuck basics so you can determine if it might be right for you. A tummy tuck can quickly … Continue reading »

Are There Dermal Fillers That Can Meet Specific Needs?

Our faces show signs of aging in different ways. Some people start to see wrinkles around the eyes, others around the mouth. Everyone has different levels of skin damage due to sun exposure, genetics, and other factors. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for achieving youthful skin, which is something we keep in mind when creating a plan of action for each patient. Our Idaho plastic surgery center offers a range of dermal fillers to allow us to generate a customized treatment plan to fit your specific needs. Although most fillers are similarly composed, certain patients may respond better to one … Continue reading »

The Common Areas Treated With BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX is a versatile and popular treatment that men and women in Jackson, WY, and all over the world are using to regain a youthful complexion. It is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries and is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments. BOTOX targets the underlying cause of wrinkles—repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions. Here are some interesting facts about BOTOX: Even if you follow an excellent skincare regimen, a lifetime of smiling, squinting, frowning, and making other expressions can result in dynamic wrinkles. These are the facial lines, especially in the forehead and around the … Continue reading »

Sensations and Downtime Associated With CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting in Idaho Falls is an FDA-approved nonsurgical procedure that freezes and destroys fat below the surface of the skin. It is not intended for significant weight loss, but rather for getting rid of stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It can treat areas such as the abs, love handles, back, arms, and under the chin using precise and controlled cooling. CoolSculpting doesn’t require an incision, so there’s essentially no downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately following a CoolSculpting procedure, and many even undergo treatments during their lunch hours. A typical … Continue reading »

You Don’t Have to Miss a Workout to Get CoolSculpting®

  Many of my CoolSculpting patients here in Idaho Falls are surprised to learn that their lasting, noticeable results don’t require downtime — or even much time away from their everyday lives. Typically, these men and women live healthy, active lifestyles and simply aren’t interested in being laid up on the couch if they can avoid it. CoolSculpting appeals to so many because it’s a completely noninvasive treatment (which means it doesn’t use an incision or needles). It also doesn’t require anesthesia, so patients are free to drive themselves to and from their appointments. If you’re considering CoolSculpting, you can … Continue reading »

“Ablative” or “Non-ablative”? Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Vocabulary Lesson

  If you’ve spent any time researching laser skin resurfacing at day spas in Idaho (or perhaps our own med spa), you’ve probably come across unfamiliar words. You’re likely to run into two in particular, over and over again: “ablative” and “non-ablative.” Let’s talk about what these terms mean for your skin. Ablative lasers are the more invasive of the 2 options. Their powerful energy actually clears away the outermost layers of the skin, revealing new, clear skin beneath while it stimulates your skin’s own natural healing response. This one-two punch of power can yield big results, and these sorts of … Continue reading »

Myth Debunked: Fillers Aren’t Just for Women

As a plastic surgeon, I realize that dermal fillers and other procedures at our med spa here in Pocatello have a reputation as being just for women. But the truth is, men have just as much use for these products, and their popularity among this population is steadily rising. Still, like all plastic surgery procedures and medical spa treatments, fillers achieve different things for men and women, because they approach the treatment session with different goals. Women typically use fillers to achieve delicate, feminine facial contours as well as smoother, less visible wrinkles. Common treatment areas for women include the … Continue reading »
