Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, Body Contouring: Advanced Procedures for Every Patient

By  0 Comments

When you’re looking to transform your body and alter how you feel about yourself and your appearance, a “one size fits all” approach simply won’t cut it. Body contouring specialist Dr. Craig Schwartz has never relied on the status quo to care for his patients. Rather, he is constantly seeking the newest, most state-of-the-art methods, devices and technologies to bring natural-looking, long-lasting results without the weeks of down time and discomfort associated with traditional surgical options.

Wide Menu of Treatments
Offering both non-invasive treatments, such as CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®, and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, such as Laser Lipo, Tickle Lipo and more, Dr. Schwartz can provide you with the best possible results. Currently, many med spas only offer non-invasive cosmetic treatments that require multiple treatments spaced weeks apart. Also, most surgical practices offer a very limited menu of in-office cosmetic procedures, preferring traditional surgeries under general anesthesia at a surgery center. Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz is unique in that it provides patients with a vast menu of surgical procedures to achieve the patient’s fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite treatment goals with minimal to no down time in the comfort and convenience of an office setting.

Using precise surgical skills and advanced tools, Dr. Schwartz meticulously designs every detail as he removes unwanted fat, tightens skin and improves cellulite and skin tone. Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz is the only Kansas City-area cosmetic practice with both CoolSculpting and SculpSure and offers all three energy options available for liposuction: laser, ultrasound and the newest generation—vibration-assisted.

“We’re devoted to minimally invasive surgical and non-invasive cosmetic treatments, and because we have multiple options available, we are able to customize a plan that will be the absolute best match for a patient’s goals,” said Dr. Schwartz.

Renuvion™ SkinTightening
Dr. Schwartz crafts an inventive, customized approach for each of his patients, producing significant improvements that others cannot without general anesthesia and long recovery periods. Although patients have been thrilled with their body contouring results, these procedures alone cannot provide the skin tightening and cellulite reduction many of the patients seek, even when combined with non-invasive treatments such as Venus Freeze™. Dr. Schwartz is thrilled to now offer his patients an exciting new skin tightening device, Renuvion™, a revolutionary, minimally invasive procedure to lift and tighten skin anywhere on the face or body. Helium plasma energy combined with radiofrequency is passed under the skin via a small handpiece; the treated areas can be tightened effectively without the large incisions, down time and potential complications of a traditional plastic surgery procedure. Renuvion can be used on almost any area including the arms, abdomen and flanks and the face, offering a truly effective low-down-time alternative to a facelift.

“This is the newest, best technology available, providing the fastest and safest skin tightening results possible. Renuvion can be used alone but is frequently combined with liposuction,” noted Dr. Schwartz. “Because Renuvion provides us with direct access to the tissue planes where tightening actually occurs, you will see results in a matter of days to weeks instead of months.”

Patient Priorities
Dr. Schwartz understands how confusing the body contouring industry can be to patients, which is why Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz offers complimentary consultations. “It’s important to identify the patient’s priorities, so I review basic questions with the patient such as, ‘How much improvement do you want? How quickly do you want to see results? What are you willing to spend to do all of that?’” he shared. “On a more detailed level, I need to know if they are seeking the best possible results, or simply the best possible results without any surgery at all. If they want as few treatments as possible or the least amount of down time or discomfort, or if it’s just about what is least expensive. Their answers highlight their priorities to me, and while every answer is important, one or more may be the most significant to the patient. We want our patients to understand that, in comparison, minimally invasive surgical options will provide the best and quickest results possible, while the benefit of non-surgical options is that they avoid whatever perceived aggravation the patient relates to surgery, even if the results will not be as good or appear as quickly.”

A highly skilled liposuction surgeon, Dr. Schwartz is triple board certified with 24 years of surgical experience, with the last 16 years dedicated to vein treatment and outpatient cosmetic procedures. In 2003, he opened one of the area’s first vein centers dedicated to the in-office diagnosis and laser treatment of vein disease, including varicose and spider veins. He soon saw the need to expanded his practice into the use of laser and energy-based procedures to also provide non-surgical and minimally invasive body contouring treatments.
