The truth about “non-invasive techniques of skin tightening and fat reduction in plastic surgery

By: Dr. Bernabe Vazquez, MD, FACS


As it was repeatedly discussed at the recent meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons in Vancouver, Canada; there is no reliable treatment to tighten facial or body skin without surgery. Likewise, promises of reducing fat by external means other than surgery are at best minimal and temporary. They are expensive however and unfortunately can cause significant complications. The lesson: don’t be fooled, save your money and your health until you are ready and able to have the appropriate surgical procedure by a board certified plastic surgeon.
