Wouldn’t it be nice if you could undergo cosmetic surgery and not even have to think abut whether or not a scar will be visible? Cosmetic surgeons are masters at concealing scars and they are constantly improving their technique. There is an innovative procedure that allows certain types of surgeries to be performed without leaving a scar.
It sounds too good to be true right?
How can a surgery be scarless?
Praised as a less invasive and more cost effective alternative to other surgical procedures, the scarless technique has been producing successful results for areas of the neck, breast and face.
The Me Clinic’s Dr Ashley Granot pioneered this revolutionary technique in the early 2000’s. The procedure involves encouraging natural collagen formation in an area, thus promoting a natural lift. This can all be achieved with one very small incision, which can be conveniently hidden.
Scarless Neck Lift
The effects of ageing can be quite pronounced on our necks. As we age, the skin on our necks loses its natural volume and begins to sag. The result can be a neck that makes you look much older than you actually are.
Performing a neck lift in the past used to entail putting the patient under general anaesthetic and removing the excess skin to restore a slim, taught neck. The scarless option is much less invasive. After making a very small incision, the surgeon will promote collagen formation in the neck. This results in restoring the skins natural volume and texture.
Scarless Upper Arm Lift
Gaining or losing a lot of weight can have pronounced effects on our bodies. Couple that with ageing and you could end up with sagging skin on your body. One place where this is very noticeable is on the upper arms. When holding your arm out you might be able to notice a distinct curtain like appearance of the upper arms.
A small incision is made in the armpit and then your surgeon will perform a procedure that will boost collagen production in the upper arm. This will help the skin to regain its natural firmness. This procedure can be done in conjunction with liposuction making it an extremely cost effective option for patients.
Scarless Breast Lift
Traditionally, any type of breast surgery was quite invasive. The intrusive nature of these procedures increased the possibility of scarring and entailed a lengthy recovery time. A breast lift can now be performed using the scarless method.
A tiny incision is made in the armpit and then a patent procedure is performed to boost collagen production in the breasts. The procedure has been proven effective in repositioning and raising the nipples on the breast as well as producing a significant lift.
Is a scarless procedure right for you?
To determine if a patient is a good candidate for a scarless procedure your surgeon will need to assess your skin laxity as well as determine the body’s ability to produce sufficient collagen. It is important to assess these characteristics to ensure a positive outcome.
