    The Patient's Guide to CoolSculpting

    Last updated 5 days ago

    Are you tired of dealing with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise? Are you hesitant to turn to plastic surgery? If so, then CoolSculpting could be right for you. This revolutionary treatment actually freezes your fat away so you can get the svelte physique you’ve always wanted. Here is what you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.

    How Does CoolSculpting Work?
    CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells by freezing them. During treatment, medical providers and specialists will apply the cooling device to the treatment area. You will feel pressure as the fat is compressed and then a very cold sensation as it freezes. The fat cells are crystalized and die, after which they are expelled from your system over the coming weeks. Once the fat cells are gone, they will not come back. Though you may not weigh less on your scale, you will lose inches and your clothes will fit better.

    How Many Treatments Do I Need?
    The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Your medical providers and specialists at Oasis Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine which areas can benefit from treatment and how many sessions each area will require for optimum results. The length of each session also varies depending on how many areas are being treated.

    What Is the Recovery Like?
    Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment. Most people can resume normal activities right away. You may experience numbness, redness, soreness, stinging, or bruising after treatment, but these side effects are minimal for most patients and should subside quickly.

    To find out if CoolSculpting is right for you, make an appointment at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Our medical providers and specialists will evaluate your goals and help you select the right procedures to meet them. Make your appointment by calling OPS today at (480) 619-5418.

    Spotlight on Arm Lift Surgery

    Last updated 12 days ago

    Brachioplasties, or arm lift surgeries, are on the rise. Since 2000, plastic surgeons have seen a 4,000 percent increase in demand for this procedure. This video explains more.

    Arm lift surgery gets rid of excess skin on the bottom parts of the arms. In most cases, this skin is left behind after a significant weight loss. As the body gets smaller, the skin can’t always snap back into shape. Arm lift surgery corrects this. Although a scar is left behind after surgery, most patients prefer the scar to the excess skin.

    If you’re interested in arm lift surgery, schedule a consultation at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Learn more about all of our plastic surgery procedures by calling our Scottsdale clinic at (480) 619-5418.

    How to Prepare for a Breast Lift Procedure

    Last updated 1 month ago

    A breast lift can revitalize your appearance and even renew your self-esteem. Since this type of cosmetic surgery normally involves no overnight stay at a med spa, a breast lift can make it easy to enhance your look with minimal recovery requirements. As with any form of plastic surgery, however, it’s important to keep in mind some preparations necessary to ensure a safe and successful procedure.

    Health Considerations
    Prior to undergoing a breast lift, discuss all health issues with Dr Geoghegan. She should be aware of any existing conditions and medications. If you take drugs that may interfere with your body’s clotting abilities, she may ask that you refrain from using them in the weeks preceding your procedure. Certain habits can also adversely affect your health during and after your breast lift procedure. If you use tobacco products, your plastic surgeon may recommend that you cease smoking. Maintaining a stable weight in the weeks leading to your procedure can also help to ensure that your breast tissue does not undergo changes that may affect the outcome of your surgery.

    Lifestyle Accommodations
    Most surgical procedures, including breast lifts, require some rest and recovery time. To guarantee that your body has the time it needs to heal, make schedule adjustments well ahead of your surgery. If you have small children at home, you may ask a friend or family member to assist you with their care in the days after your breast lift. Engaging in activities that require lifting could damage healing incisions, so see to it that you can avoid these types of movements as you recover. If you work outside the home, you may want to discuss your temporary leave options with your employer so you can heal as needed.

    Do you have more questions about your upcoming breast lift? The friendly cosmetic surgery experts at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa would be happy to answer your concerns. To learn more about this procedure, call (480) 619-5418 to speak with one of our Scottsdale associates.

    What to Expect From Your Liposuction Procedure

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Liposuction is a hugely popular type of plastic surgery, and is safe and effective for people who want to enhance their appearance. If you have decided to undergo liposuction, you might be wondering what to expect during and after the procedure.

    Depending on your procedure, you will likely be able to leave the facility the same day of your surgery. Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure, which allows you to rest and recover in the comfort of your home. To ensure that your incisions can heal properly, it’s important to avoid vigorous movements that might hinder your recovery. Depending on the recommendations of Dr Geoghegan, you may need to refrain from your normal workout routine for a couple weeks. However, you will likely resume your professional responsibilities within seven days of your liposuction procedure.

    See for yourself why so many people turn to liposuction for their cosmetic needs. Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa offers this popular procedure, as well as many other cosmetic surgery options, for individuals in Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, and Scottsdale. Call us today at (480) 619-5418 for more information.
