Minimally invasive cosmetic treatments replace plastic surgery


Minimally invasive cosmetic treatments most popular in America

Botox tops the list of plastic surgery procedures

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently released a report listing the most popular plastic surgery procedures of 2011. It showed that the total number of procedures performed nationwide has increased nearly twice since 2000. Botox and other injectables, which are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, were among the most popular procedures. Almost 90% of all plastic surgeries performed in the United States over the past year fell into this category.

Minimally invasive procedures can really be a cost-effective way for you to look younger. Anyway, you shouldn’t forget to seek consultation and treatment from an experienced and certified plastic surgeon and trusted dermatologist. A number of deaths due to cosmetic surgery were reported in Dubai during the past few years. Although there is an increasing number of private clinics that offer cosmetic surgeries, it is difficult to give a recommendation.

The rising number of minimally invasive plastic surgery procedures may be caused by price difference. The average surgery usually costs several thousand dollars and the average minimally invasive procedure generally costs several hundred. Many patients may choose to get Botox injections to feel at least the partial effect, instead of undergoing a full procedure, such as facelift. Nevertheless, it is important for the patients to remember that the effect of minimally invasive treatments is also temporary. You generally need to repeat them over time in order to preserve your desired look. This process can sometimes cost you as much as doing the surgery.

Moreover, the popularity of cosmetic injectables has resulted into a large number of medical providers offering these services and some of them are not experienced or highly trained.

 It is crucial for patients to make quality, not price, their priority when it comes to any kind of cosmetic surgery.

Minimally invasive procedures can be very effective when it comes to lifting and firming the skin, and that is why they are a good choice for many patients. Many salons in Dubai, nowadays offer innovative facial treatments that effectively reverse the aging process. A professional skincare-focused workstations are developed by a different providers to enable dermatologists to combine few beautifying procedures at once. Joz Group is a reputable Dubai-based supplier that offers a variety of professional equipment for salons and spas.

However, some patients may benefit more from a more permanent procedure, or even the combination of injectables and conventional plastic surgery. Anyway, a certified plastic surgeon would be the best and safest provider for these treatments. We believe that everyone should discuss their goals with a skilled surgeon and dermatologist before choosing a procedure.

The list of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments and conventional plastic surgery include Botox, Restylane, Juvederm and Sculptra Aesthetic to tummy tucks, breast lifts, liposuction, and facelift surgeries.


  1. I agree. It is very important that you consult with your physician about the procedure that is right for you, and that may include longevity of the results, downtime, and price. Price is just one consideration in seeking cosmetic surgery. You should research the doctor and make sure he or she has the correct licensure and experience. Not only that, although minimally invasive procedures may oft times cost less, but you will most likely need to repeat the procedure. Some procedures simply do not work as well for certain corrections. So be sure you do your research and check out all your options!
