Minimally Invasive

Minimally Invasive procedures are nonsurgical options for looking younger. With Botox injections being number one in recent years, there are far more noninvasive rejuvenation services performed than facelifts each year in the U.S.

Nonsurgical procedures are so customizable, meaning there are many different options for techniques and products compared to surgery. There are several competitors for Botox and many kinds of dermal fillers – people like choices. And with so many choices, people feel confident they’ll be able to find an option that works best for their personal goals for their appearance.

Time is another consideration.People are so busy these days, and surgical procedures take weeks for recuperation. Minimally invasive procedures can be done during a lunch break.

Results from nonsurgical options last for several months, so there is little risk of being "stuck” with a less-than-desired outcome forever. If you’re hesitant to make a permanent change to your appearance, "trying out” a filler or an injectable drug may be the right choice for you. If you’re satisfied with the results, you can speak with your LSU Plastic Surgeon about a more permanent (surgical) option would then be considered.

With all surgeries, there are risks – infection, bleeding, complications from anesthesia. There are few risks and low complication rates with noninvasive rejuvenation techniques.Additionally, there are no incisions, scars, or recovery time to consider.
