NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2013) - In addition to a number of surgical cosmetic procedures, Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, a board-certified New York City plastic surgeon, also offers many nonsurgical procedures at his private practice to help patients achieve a revitalized, more youthful appearance without the need for invasive surgery. With treatments like CoolSculpting®, BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and now Ultherapy™, Dr. Broumand says patients have more nonsurgical options available than ever before to achieve their cosmetic goals.

Ultherapy™ is a non-invasive cosmetic enhancement technique that Dr. Broumand typically utilizes to rejuvenate mild wrinkling and moderate skin sagging on his patients' faces. This state-of-the-art treatment uses ultrasonic waves to prompt the patient's skin to regain some of its firmness and elasticity. At Dr. Broumand's practice, the Ulthera™ device is guided along the patient's skin to heat the underlying tissues of the face. This process ultimately encourages the growth of new collagen, which is the body's way of naturally tightening the surface of the skin.

In addition to the face, Dr. Broumand also notes that Ultherapy™ can be performed on the neck and abdomen to achieve the same skin smoothing and tightening effects. The NYC plastic surgeon also expects that as the technology is further tested, Ultherapy™ will eventually be approved for other areas of the body aside from just the face, neck, forehead, and abdomen.

Dr. Broumand says Ultherapy™ is a proven physiologic treatment that yields results not possible with other nonsurgical procedures. For his patients whose main concern is skin tightening and desire a nonsurgical approach, Ultherapy™ is the treatment he recommends. He says Ultherapy™ treatments have even become more popular than the traditional surgical techniques of skin tightening at his New York City plastic surgery practice.

However, Dr. Broumand says patients who are also looking to reduce fat should consider an alternative method of cosmetic enhancement. According to him, Ultherapy™ is the premier skin tightening method for the face, while CoolSculpting® -- another popular nonsurgical procedure -- can be an excellent method for fat reduction in areas such as the abdomen, hips, and flanks.

While Ultherapy™ is an effective, non-surgical procedure for wrinkle reduction, Dr. Broumand highlights the treatment is also a nuanced procedure that most commonly address the tissues of the face. A surgical understanding of the face, its anatomy and innervation, as well as an experience with the treatment will give patients the best result. In Dr. Broumand's opinion, this experience and expertise can most often be found in board-certified plastic surgeons.
