Our first priority in any of our cosmetic or plastic surgery treatments is your safety. This guides all of the decisions we make, the technologies we use and the treatments we provide at Athenix. These are medical procedures and we follow strict protocol:
- Medical Assessment—Before any cosmetic and plastic surgery procedure, you will meet with your physician to review your medical history and have blood work done. This information will help ensure you are in the best physical and mental place for your treatment. If necessary, we may require medical clearance from your primary care physician to ensure you are healthy to undergo a surgical procedure.
- Antibiotics—Before any cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure, our patients begin an at-home antibiotics regimen. We do this for your safety because early treatment reduces any potential risk of infection.
- Safety Precautions—All of our procedures are done with your highest level of safety in mind. We follow established standards of medical care to ensure optimal results and the utmost safety.
- Lidocaine Monitoring—Without proper dosage and monitoring, lidocaine intoxication is a risk with any cosmetic surgical procedure. Instead of the risks of traditional liposuction, our physicians have selected treatment technologies that enable us to use less lidocaine and reduce the risk for our patients.
Great Results and Appropriate Expectations
Our patients expect and deserve great results, and our doctors are always mindful of your wishes. Before any procedure, we carefully assess your requests and set realistic expectations for the results you can achieve. You will have the opportunity to review before and after photos of patients with similar body types to help you see what to expect. With our expertise of combination therapies, we deliver outstanding results based on what is best for each individual. We see our evaluations as an important step in the treatment process to determine what is right for you, your body and your lifestyle.
Innovative and Technologically Advanced
Our specialized focus on cosmetic and plastic surgery allows us to invest in the latest technologies. We are always looking for treatments and technologies that are less invasive, improve results, and reduce downtime and discomfort. Our Micro-Body Contouring procedure offers important safety and appearance advantages versus traditional liposuction and laser liposuction. Your body is your personal work of art and our advanced treatments empower you to achieve your ideal results.
