Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon Among Top Influencers in Cosmetic Surgery
Scottsdale, AZ – March 24, 2017 – Scottsdale physician Aldo Guerra, MD, FACS is one of 100 doctors worldwide to receive the RealSelf 100 Award, a prestigious award honoring the top influencers on RealSelf—the most trusted online destination to get informed about elective cosmetic procedures and to find and connect with doctors, clinics and plastic surgery centers.
We were very excited when our new miraDry® System arrived last October at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Since then, we have been very busy applying this new technology on patients that sweat way too much from their underarms. Prospective patients who are researching miraDry® as an option to reduce this embarrassing problem should take note of our very positive results!
Dr. Aldo Guerra, one of the top plastic surgeons in Arizona, offers 3 types of breast implants at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center. We only use FDA Approved Made in the USA breast implants from Mentor®, a Johnson and Johnson company.
Tummy tuck is a very popular operation at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale which entails removal of excess skin left over from pregnancy. The tummy tuck operation also involves the restoration of the abdominal wall muscles into their pre-pregnancy position. This portion of the operation is performed by suturing the stretched abdominal muscles back into position which unfortunately, can be quite uncomfortable. My patients rate this part of the operation as the most unpleasant part of the overall tummy tuck experience. Over the years, I have tried several formulations of local anesthesia to reduce the level of pain and improve the patient’s recovery experience. Studies demonstrate that patients treated with local anesthetics during surgery seem to require less pain pills and can recover faster when appropriately motivated. In the past, local anesthesia injected into the area would only last 6 to 8 hours after surgery. This short period of pain relief falls short of expectations for both plastic surgeons and tummy tuck AZ patients. The search for an ideal local anesthetic that is both safe and is longer lasting has been a challenge, but recently we have used an advanced formulation which reduces pain significantly and is effective for up to 3 days after surgery.
Juvederm® Injections for Fuller Lips and BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections for Wrinkle Treatments Are a Great Combination
Patients at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale are pleasantly pleased with the wide array of non-surgical products and services offered. As we head into 2017 there is a diverse group of dermal filler products including Juvderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm® Voluma XC, Restylane®-L, Restylane® LYFT and Restylane® SILK. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are still the two popular wrinkle treatments in Scottsdale.
Patients that are interested in larger breast implants in the range of 500cc or 550cc should consider Mentor® MemoryShape® breast implants. Some reasons to consider MemoryShape® breast implants include the natural-looking teardrop shape, advanced gummy bear cohesive silicone gel and this implant has the lowest reported complication rate of any implant on the market today.
