What It’s Like to Have Excess Skin Removal After Bariatric Surgery

By | Cosmetic Procedures | No Comments

Carrying extra weight has many negative health consequences. Heart disease, diabetes, joint issues, and more can all be complications of excess weight. For those considered morbidly obese, bariatric surgery may be the best option to get their bodies back into shape. While bariatric surgery has been a lifesaver for those who struggle with weight loss, there is another issue people must deal with when rapidly losing weight. Because the skin was stretched out from being overweight, losing weight rapidly can result in excess skin. This excess skin can be unflattering.

Excess Skin Removal After Bariatric Surgery

Fortunately, there is a plastic surgery that deals with excess skin left after bariatric surgery. People who have rapidly lost weight can undergo skin removal surgery to have the excess skin taken off them. How much skin you have removed, and what part of the body the skin removal is done on, will affect how long it takes to recover. A breast lift, or an upper arm lift, have a short recovery period. In one week, patients can return to work, and after a month, patients can start exercising again.

On the other hand, you may need more skin removed. This more extensive plastic surgery includes procedures like a lower body lift. A lower body lift removes excess skin around the abdomen. Then, it may also become necessary to tighten up the midsection. In this case, there can be excessive swelling after the procedure that requires drains to be placed and left for one or two weeks. It is usually over six weeks before patients can resume normal activity, including exercise and heavy lifting.

After surgery, it may be hard to stand or walk for a certain period of time. The incision must be babied to prevent from being opened or infected.

While it may be daunting to look at the recovery times, pain, and reduction in activities during recovery, having excess skin removed will boost your confidence.

The Most Popular Procedures in your 20s, 30s and 40s

By | Cosmetic Procedures | No Comments

Many of us have one of two things that, if we had the opportunity, we could like to change about ourselves. It may be a small bump on the nose only we notice, ears that we may feel stick out more than we would like, or a bevy of other personal displeasures. As we age, feelings about certain parts of our body change, and we look to combat these things. It goes without saying that as you age, you require different procedures to combat certain aspects of aging. You may not know what procedures to investigate further based on your age. Here are a few essential facts to know about the most popular procedures based on your age!

Most Popular Procedures

When you’re in your 20s, not many people opt for having age combating procedures just yet. Most of the procedures undertaken while someone is in their 20s are augmentation; for example if there is a part of your body that you’re unhappy with or has been causing discomfort, such as a deviated septum, or breasts that cause back pain. These are the most common procedures undertaken during this age range. One of the most popular is procedures is rhinoplasty, which is the augmentation of the nose. The nose is a very prominent feature, so if there is an aspect of it that you’re unhappy with, many people choose this as the first procedure they want to have done.

Another extremely popular procedure at this age is lip augmentation. There are numerous ways of achieving lip augmentation, and this procedure remains popular throughout the age groups. Lastly, breast augmentation, lift, and even reductions are incredibly popular. This is another procedure that often has been long thought out by the person undertaking it, and can help to drastically improve one’s positive sense of self and confidence. Though the procedure really depends on the person and what their desired outcome is, these are 3 of the most popular for people in their 20s!

As we enter our thirties, our metabolism begins to slow down and putting in the same amount of time at the gym in combination with a well balanced diet just doesn’t have the same effect as it used to. That’s why, for many in their 30’s, there is a much higher demand for procedures such as liposuction and abdominoplasty. These procedures remove unwanted and stubborn fat, while also smoothing out skin. Liposuction can be applied to Abdomen, Hips and thighs, Buttocks, Chest and neck Upper and lower back Calves and ankles. Another option for a less invasive procedure for the same results is Body TITE!

In addition, perhaps towards the later 30s, there’s an increased popularity in Botox. Though wrinkle procedures are most commonly undertaken to improve appearance, they can also improve TMJ and even migraines. Lastly, breast augmentation remains one of the most popular procedures. Breast augmentation doesn’t necessarily mean larger implants it can also mean lifting and augmenting the existing breast tissue!

The 40s are when signs of aging start to really show in most people. Though wrinkles and fine lines may not be overtly visible, they certainly are an annoyance making us appear tired. In addition, a large number of women will have had children by this age, thereby changing their body. On account of this, many women are opting for wrinkle treatment to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and tightening the neck and face. Our wrinkle treatment is effective in treating crow’s feet, laugh or smile lines, frown lines and even worry lines. In addition, dermal fillers can combat sunken cheeks, thin lips, acne scarring and accentuating eyebrows.

Furthermore, many women in their 40s will opt to have body sculpting or liposuction procedures undertaken to reverse the changes in their body caused by having children. Body TITE works in 4 ways to reduce fat, body contour, reduce cellulite and tighten the skin. Many consider Body TITE to be better than traditional liposuction because it is less traumatic to the body, and provides more uniform results. To combat both aging and the impact of having children, many women will opt to have a breast lift and/or augmentation to revitalize their breasts. A breast augmentation procedure will help to achieve perkier more youthful looking breasts. This can achieve improved body image, self confidence and improved self esteem.

Gift Idea: His and Hers Procedures

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

It’s that time of year again. Christmas décor and holiday lights have taken over everywhere you go, Christmas songs and carols play on every radio station and in every store, and the holiday shopping rush is in full swing. With the fun parties and family get-togethers also comes the struggle of finding the perfect holiday gift for your significant other. This year, why not try something different?

Couple activities drive the spirit of togetherness and strengthen ties among each other. This year, treat yourself and your significant other to a couple makeover. This shared experience will allow you both to address the aesthetic concerns that may have been bothering you for some time, while also strengthening your bond.

Take a look at our list of the best couple makeover treatments:

Body Contouring

Both men and women have those problem areas that they just can’t seem to get rid of with regular exercise and healthy eating. These procedures specifically target particular areas of the body to help you both fulfill your body goals:

  • Body TITE is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens and smooths the skin while also reducing fat all in one. This procedure works well for the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, back and arms.
  • If all of the sit-ups and planks you have been doing have not been successful in tightening your midsection, Abdominoplasty (also known as tummy tuck) may be the perfect solution for you. This procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat deposits from the midsection, while tightening weakened abdominal muscles. Finally, the remaining skin is pulled down to flatten and tighten the stomach.
  • Liposuction works well for areas that look out of proportion due to excess body fat. Deposits of fat are removed from the body using a process similar to vacuuming. Common areas of the body that respond well to liposuction are the abdomen, hips and thighs, buttocks, chest and neck, upper and lower back and calves and ankles.
  • If you are looking for a painless non-surgical treatment to reduce body fat, Body FX it is! Combining radio frequency energy pulses and heat together with vacuum massage, this treatment eliminates fat and tightens the skin to give you stunning body-contouring results. Treatments are once a week for approximately 45 minutes for up to 6 weeks, with virtually no recovery time.

Facial Rejuvenation

Perhaps visible signs of facial aging are more of a concern for you and your loved one. With age, wrinkles, facial folds and sagging skin slowly begin to appear. While it is impossible to turn back time, you can reverse the effects of aging with these procedures:

  • Dermal Fillers help hydrate and plump up the skin using a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This treatment smooths away fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars and may also be used to fill out cheeks that have a sunken-in look or plump up thin lips.
  • A minimally invasive alternative to the Face Lift, is Face Tite. This treatment eliminates fat or droopy areas of the face and neck using a radiofrequency technology. This short treatment will re-contour and tighten the skin of areas like the brow and cheek, neck area and jowls.
  • FORMA is non-surgical treatments that tighten, lift and improve the texture and smoothness of the skin by producing collages as well as contracting the skin.
  • Droopy eyelids and dark circles under your eyes may be adding years to your appearance. If that is the case, Blepharoplasty (also known as Eyelid Lift) is the right procedure for you. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and/or the removal of fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids for a more youthful, energetic appearance.

Mix and Match

Of course, you and your significant other do not need to undergo the same procedure. Maybe you are more interested in eliminating signs of sun damage and aging, while your loved one has always wanted to get rid of the extra skin on their arms. Feel free to mix and match treatments to fit your specific needs and goals.

Relive Your Youth With Fillers

Relive Your Youth with Fillers

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

We all know that aging is a natural part of life. With age comes wisdom, knowledge and experience.  Unfortunately with age, we also tend to lose much of the volume of facial muscle, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle. While you may have taken great care of your skin and avoided all wrinkle-inducing habits throughout your youth, wrinkles and sagging skin are bound to happen. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do everything in your power to fight them off!

You have probably heard of and are quite familiar with Botox, but have you heard of the, slightly less famous, but equally effective fillers? Dermal fillers help to regain the youth vitality of your skin by adding volume and rejuvenating the skin. This procedure requires zero downtime, and is effective for all skin types. Eager to fight the effects of aging? Let’s take a look at dermal fillers in more detail.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Fillers are a naturally-derived substance called hyaluronic acid, which is found in the human body. These treatments are directly injected into the skin in order to plump the area and eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is relatively painless, and because it is natural there is no risk of allergic reaction. With zero downtime, you will be able to continue your daily routine while enjoying a more youthful appearance.

Treatment Areas and Procedure Details

Fillers are injected into a specific area of the skin and work well to treat a variety of regions. As mentioned previously, filling in fine lines and wrinkles is one of the most common reasons that patients opt for this treatment. Fillers can also be used to plump up thin lips to give them a full, luscious look. Pucker up, ladies! Other uses also include filling in acne scars, filling out cheeks that have a sunken-in look, and raising or accentuating eyebrows.

The treatment itself is minimally invasive and non-surgical. Results of this treatment are seen immediately, and usually last for several months. Though no downtime is required, follow-up visits usually are required to monitor progress and schedule future treatments. This procedure is quick and simple, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule!

Fillers at Clearview MediSpa

Clearview MediSpa provides state-of-the-art cosmetic treatments that will correct issues in a variety of areas, in order to enhance your appearance, and restore the confidence you may have lost along the way.

Liposuction PLUS Body TITE

Liposuction PLUS Body TITE: The Ultimate Body Firming Combo

By | Cosmetic Procedures | No Comments

You’ve been doing everything right, eating healthy, exercising regularly and getting seven to eight hours of sleep a night; but you still can’t seem to shed those extra inches off your problem areas.  What is the deal? Don’t fret, there are options available that will help you reach your dream body goals and have you feeling confident and flawless!

Certain cosmetic procedures help target those problem areas that we all seem to have, and provide long lasting results. Liposuction and Body TITE combined make for the ultimate body-firming combo!

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat deposits from different areas of the body, and helps reshape the area in the process. Using a process that resembles vacuuming, liposuction is a great option for removing that extra fat from areas that just don’t seem to respond to exercise and eating right. Targeting those specific problem areas can help achieve a more proportionate look, improve body symmetry, as well as balance.

The recovery process requires patients to take approximately one week off of work. It does not require an overnight stay, but follow-up visits are necessary to monitor recovery. Common areas that respond well to liposuction include: the abdomen, hips and thighs, buttocks, chest and neck, upper and lower back, calves, and ankles.

What is Body TITE?

Body TITE Body Firming is a minimally invasive procedure that helps have your skin tightened, smoothed, and fat reduced simultaneously.  A RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Liposuction) technology is used, which melts and removes excess fat through an incision in a discreet location. Body TITE helps tighten loose skin in problem areas, and leads to body tightening of up to 40%! To top it all off, this procedure also reduces cellulite, to allow for a smoother appearance of the skin.

With this procedure, you will be able to see results immediately, and get back to your daily routine shortly after! Typical body areas that can be treated with Body TITE include: the abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper arms, thighs, knees, and back.

What are the benefits of using both?

You have read the advantages of each procedure, and what each one can do for your body. Now, what happens when you combine both procedures? While liposuction can help eliminate fat from target areas, Body TITE can firm the area, and decrease the risk of post-liposuction skin laxity and cellulite. Combining both of these procedures will have you eliminating excess fat that you cannot seem to get rid of with proper eating and exercise, and provide an overall improvement in body shape and contour.

For the month of November only, Clearview MediSpa is offering FREE Body TITE with your Liposuction! What are you waiting for? To take advantage of this offer and have all your body dreams become reality, schedule a personalized consultation today!






Discrete Procedures For Men

Discrete Procedures For Men

By | Cosmetic Procedures, Treatments | No Comments

Cosmetic procedures, once synonymous with female patients only, are now widely understood to be suitable for everyone. The amount of men turning to cosmetic procedures has actually increased dramatically over the past 5 years, with a 43% increase overall. Despite this increase, it is possible that some men still may not want others to know they have undergone a cosmetic procedure.

Call it pride, or call it privacy; regardless of the reason these men are in luck. There are cosmetic procedures available which, due to their minimally invasive nature and fast recovery time, are extremely discrete.

Here are a few procedures you can undergo, essentially under the radar. You will have everyone wondering how you suddenly look so good!

Wrinkle Treatment

Fine lines and wrinkles happen to the best of us. Laugh or smile lines around the mouth, frown or worry lines in between the eyes or across the forehead, and crow’s feet outside of the eyes are all very common. Luckily, you can quickly, and discretely, combat these signs of aging. Wrinkle treatment injections are administered to the problem areas, and effectively reduce muscle activity in that area, giving you a more youthful appearance that can last for several months! Injections are quick, relatively painless, and require absolutely no downtime.

Brow Lift

Sagging eyebrows, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal lines across the middle of the forehead can all make you look older and tired, even at your most refreshed! The brow lift procedure is designed to slightly raise the brow, and smooth out the forehead. Since incisions are strategically placed, no scarring is visible after the procedure. While there may be some swelling and bruising common to the recovery process, the brow lift is a completely outpatient surgery. A brow lift results in a more alert, and youthful appearance, and a more relaxed appearance of forehead lines. This procedure is often paired with blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift. While this may be a longer recovery time, it also means a greater transformation!


If you are experiencing fat or droopy areas on your face, the Face TITE procedure works to eliminate these issues, while contouring and firming at the same time. This minimally invasive procedure is an alternative to a full surgical facelift, without going under a surgeon’s knife, and without the recovery time! With Face TITE, there is minimal discomfort, and it is a relatively short treatment time, with immediate results of skin being lifted! This revolutionary technology uses a hand held device to apply heat just under the skin to produce more collagen. While you will see results right away, results will continue to improve over a six-week period as more collagen is produced, and skin continues to tighten!


Have you ever heard the term “turkey neck”? If you have, you are probably already wondering how to address it. The Neck TITE procedure is the most advanced treatment to tighten the jaw and neck area. Similar to Face TITE, this procedure uses radio frequency energy technology to gently remove the fat and contour the skin in these troubled areas at the same time. As the new collagen forms, the results will continue to improve over the next 3 – 12 weeks after your procedure. Since the device used is designed specifically for the delicate areas of the neck and jaw, no scars will be left from the procedure. The best part of this Neck TITE, is that most patients need just one treatment to achieve their desired results!


Many minimally invasive procedures with low or no recovery time are designed to combat signs of aging on the face and neck: where others are most able to see our flaws. One procedure that affectively targets the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and back is BodyFX. This non-surgical treatment is used to reduce body fat, tighten skin, and even reduce cellulite. This is the best way to target any leftover fatty tissue, and give you a more toned, contoured body. Using a similar radio frequency energy technology as both Face TITE and Neck TITE, BodyFX is pain-free, safe, and convenient; treatments are approximately 45 minutes long, and can be administered once a week for up to 6 weeks. Results are permanent, and no one will catch on to your slowly shrinking problem areas.
