Re-Q-venation with Dr. Q.

Many people are bothered by the signs of aging that can make them look older than their actual age. A number of cosmetic surgery treatments are available today for skin tightening, fat reduction, and toning up of specific area of the body. However, not every individual may be comfortable with the idea of plastic surgery for aesthetic reasons. In such cases, the cosmetic surgeon may recommend effective non-surgical alternatives to achieve a rejuvenated physical appearance.

Technological advancements have led to the emergence of several state of the art non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments that can produce the desired aesthetic results, even though the outcomes cannot be compared with surgery.

Game Changers for a Person’s Self-esteem

Two of the most popular aesthetic treatments in surgery include facelift and tummy tuck. With innovative non-surgical techniques, Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q), who is a qualified plastic surgeon, is able to provide similar results as surgery for these procedures. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.


Ulthera is a marvelous, stellar, and astounding non-surgical technique that can help a patient to achieve significant lift to tighten facial skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Patients who are keen to avoid cosmetic surgery may consider this alternative. The marvelous thing about this ultrasound based technique is that the energy is able to penetrate into the deeper foundations of the skin, stimulating the production of fresh collagen, and eventually achieving sustainable and longer lasting outcomes.

Many experienced cosmetic surgeons are recommending Ulthera for patients who suffer from facial skin laxity, but need non-surgical preventative care in order to delay the onset of conspicuous signs of aging. The treatment involves no downtime and no risk of side effects. Patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive this treatment from Dr. Q, who is a plastic surgeon of repute in the area. Ulthera can also be used effectively on other parts of the body that require toning up.

Dr. Q also provides liquid facelift treatment options such as Botox, Dysport, and dermal fillers. These are injectable treatments to achieve facial rejuvenation and reduction of wrinkles and lines. Advanced laser treatments such as Ultrapulse CO2 laser as well as chemical peels are non-surgical treatment options to achieve skin tightening and reduction of facial wrinkles without surgery.

Tummy Tuck and Fat Reduction in Other Areas

One of the highly popular and effective non-surgical alternatives to abdominoplasty or tummy tuck plastic surgery is CoolSculpting. This procedure involves a unique cooling technique that is designed to freeze off the unwanted fat cells to their death. The procedure does not involve any incisions or even injections, and can cause disintegration of the stubborn fat cells simply with as targeted and controlled cooling process.

The frozen fat cells eventually get eliminated from the body in a natural way. Most patients will be able to see noticeable results after just a single CoolSculpting treatment. The treatment is best suited for patients who are bothered by stubborn pockets of localized fats in areas such as the tummy, hips, thighs, calves, and neck. Thermage is another treatment option, which uses heat based therapy to achieve the same fat reduction results by disintegrating the fat cells by delivery of targeted heat energy.
