Market Report: InMode, Manufacturer of BodyTite Looking Bullish

According to a recent Yahoo news report, InMode Ltd., a leading global provider of innovative and award-winning medical technologies, looks bullish in markets and has grown 15% from its Initial Public Offering (IPO) base in August.  The report says that IPOs are typically volatile, and it is worth waiting so they have a significant amount of history. A few other new issues out there are not performing quite as well, but InMode is in the medical sector, and is experiencing amazing earnings and sales growth. Some of the other medical device companies are also performing well.

As reported by Bloomberg, newly public InMode Ltd’s shares soared 25% on August 14, 2019. The company had announced the international pop icon Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador for its alternatives to cosmetic surgery, and this may be a major reason for the increased interest in InMode. Paula Abdul had agreed to join the Skin-Tightening Company as their brand ambassador to share her positive experience with the company’s innovative technologies. From the Yahoo report, we can infer that InMode’s collaboration with pop icon Paula Abdul has definitely proved beneficial to the company, because InMode came public only recently in a $14 IPO.

Another report from Streetwise says the shares of InMode rose 25% even as the broader stock market dropped. According to them, InMode Ltd reported their second quarter earnings for the period ending June 30, 2019. In a separate release, InMode also announced the appointment of pop icon Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador which attracted a lot of public attention. The company reported

  • Record revenue of $38.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 55% over 2018 2nd quarter
  • Net income of $15.8 billion or $0.45 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $7.6 million or $0.21 per diluted share in Q2/18 (apart from noticeable improvements in gross margins and operating margins)
  • A total cash position of $82.8 million including cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and deposits, excluding the $70 million proceeds raised in InMode’s IPO.

This medical technology company is a leading global provider of innovative, energy-based solutions that offer cutting edge medical devices for minimally-invasive and non-invasive procedures. They provide amazing results for the patient and the practice. InMode’s technological advancements began over two decades ago with state-of-the-art light, laser, and radiofrequency devices invented by leading doctors and scientists, who essentially launched and shaped the industry. Their technology continues that legacy to provide superior satisfaction for both the patient and the practice. InMode’s CEO and chairman Moshe Mizrahy said that they were pleased with their second quarter results that are consistent with both their reported expectations and the positive trends they were continuing to see in their business.

Paula Abdul underwent treatment using InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite technology for her arm and lower face as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou MD of bodySCULPT in NYC and InMode’s Chief Medical Officer who is responsible for the development of all InMode procedures, clinical studies and training, discussed the choice. He said, “Paula is an excellent candidate for InMode’s innovative technology using Radio-Frequency (RF) to provide a natural tighter appearance. She exercised regularly, was healthy but had some areas that troubled her due to past injuries and the effects of aging.”

Excited by her results, Paula wants to share what the BodyTite/FaceTite procedure did for her and can do for others. She is happy to be InMode’s brand ambassador because she has experienced good results with the company’s treatments that enabled her to restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive surgery and general anesthesia.

Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are inventors of BodyTite on Arms, a Scarless arm lift surgery in NYC is an innovative technique used to enhance the contour of your arms under local anesthesia to tighten and remove the excess skin under the arms, without leaving any scars.

Similarly, invented by Dr. Theodorou in conjunction with InMode, two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 are combined for a breakthrough procedure EmbraceRF that uses RF energy to get rid of unwanted fat in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation solution effectively treats the subdermal adipose tissue of the face. The procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area caused by factors such as aging, genetics, weight gain and loss, sun exposure and gravity – without surgery.

President of InMode North America, Shakil Lakhani, says, “We are thrilled to announce a strong and powerful woman like Paula representing our brand, who has an ageless presence and embodies InMode’s commitment to enhance beauty and well-being. This collaboration will ensure a greater audience who will be aware of the benefits of InMode’s technology on a national and global level.”

Brazilian Butt Lift: Where Are the Incisions Made?

The desire for a curvy, well-shaped derriere has made Brazilian butt lift a much sought-after body contouring cosmetic surgery procedure. Performed using the latest techniques, a Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC allows women to achieve their aesthetic goals effectively and safely.

Brazilian Butt LiftThe latest annual statistics report of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that a total of 24,099 BBL procedures were performed in 2018, a 19% increase from 2017. This buttock augmentation procedure involves using the patient’s own fat instead of implants to enhance the buttocks. It is an ideal option for those who don’t want implants. One common concern among patients considering BBL is about the incision sites.

Women prefer BBL over other buttock augmentation procedures, as it achieves two goals simultaneously: it removes unwanted fat from areas of the body such as the waist and thighs and relocates it to the buttocks, helping to achieve their dreamt hourglass figure and a plump, perky derriere. This is done through tiny incisions. A BBL patient needs incisions in two locations: the donor site and the buttocks.

  • Incisions in the Donor Site(s): Advanced liposuction techniques are used to extract the fat needed for BBL from the donor sites. Tiny incisions are made in areas from where the fat is available in excess such as the abdomen, waist, back or thighs. The harvested fat is then purified. The incisions are then carefully closed with dissolvable sutures which will be strategically located to ensure that they are as inconspicuous as possible. The sutures will naturally dissolve throughout your recovery, which means that you do not need to return to the plastic surgery practice to have them removed.
  • Incisions in the Buttocks: Once the harvested fat is purified after liposuction procedure, it will be reduced it down to a fraction of what was originally extracted. The best and most viable tissues are then injected into the buttocks. For this, the surgeon will make another incision in the buttock area. The purified fat is re-injected carefully using micro droplet techniques, in very small quantities and at the right depths to provide natural-looking results.

Unlike a traditional butt augmentation procedure or butt lift, which involves making a long incision across the top of the buttocks in order to remove unwanted skin, a BBL surgery in NYC involves only tiny incisions which are usually unnoticeable after the procedure. As a result, patients are not left with a long, unsightly scar. On the RealSelf forum, one plastic surgeon points out that incisions made to harvest the fat cells with liposuction would be less than 1/2 cm and that they are placed in such area where they will be hidden by the underwear/swimwear. The incisions to transfer the fat are placed in the “internal face of the gluteus”, and will remain invisible to the eye. Another surgeon explains that visible scars are more likely when a large liposuction cannula is used in patients who have darkly pigmented skin.

Skilled plastic surgeons who have years of experience in successfully performing BBL can provide attractive outcomes with minimal scarring. If you are considering Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC, do your research well and choose a skilled plastic surgeon who is well-trained in the procedure. Experts perform BBL using advanced techniques and very small incisions that would be virtually unnoticeable once they have healed. Invented by leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC, the Brazilian Butt Lift under local anesthesia (BBLULA) is a safer option than BBL under general anesthesia. This short procedure comes with a very short recuperation time and a quicker return back to normal activity.

How Paula Abdul Gets Ready for Her Dazzling Performance

International pop icon Paula Abdul who is also now a brand ambassador of InMode Ltd, a prominent medical technology company, has shared via parade.com how she gets ready for her performance — from meditating to scheduling self-care on her calendar.

How Paula Abdul Gets Ready for Her Dazzling PerformanceThe “Cold Hearted” singer was currently prepping for her new Las Vegas residency, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl,” at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino on August 13 where she had put on the hard work, starting each day before the sun and going until late at night. She admits that being on stage takes work. Fortunately for her, dancing is still just as meaningful, because it is something she’s done since she was just 8 years old. For her, dance is one of the most precious gifts of her life and it largely contributes to aging gracefully. She shares her positive outlook to aging — “I feel like I’m aging as gracefully as one can be, with a healthy outlook. Dancing with passion everyday keeps that going. Aging is inevitable, and I haven’t really put too much pressure on it.”

In an exclusive interview with Parade.com, the 57-year-old singer opened up about how she makes time for self-care i.e. how she schedules it, how she stays in shape, mentally and physically for the performances and more.

  • Preparations for Performance: The pop idol says that she does lots of stretching, Pilates, yoga, and massages, and also gets a lot of rest in between performances and rehearsals. However, rehearsal, mentally and physically, is a vital part of preparing to perform and is sacred because it brings the team together for the love and sharing of dance (parade.com). She also opened up about the treatments she got from InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite to tighten her arms and lower face, to look as good as she feels when she is up there on that stage. Moreover, wanting to avoid traditional cosmetic surgery, Paula looked for a non-invasive option to address her concerns and found InMode and its BodyTite and FaceTite technology.
  • Fitness choices: According to a report from PEOPLE, the 57-year-old singer and dancer is far from slowing down as she has to treat her body well to keep going day after day. Abdul told PEOPLE that, “It’s very physically intense. I get up at 6 and I work with my trainer for an hour and a half. Then I go to rehearsals at about a quarter to 9. We do a warm-up and then we dance. We go from about 9:45 until 7 p.m., and we take one day off.” She describes her workout routine which includes a lot of stretching and back and core work (if her trainer is around). She says, “even though I’m dancing all day I often do straight cardio just so that I’m conditioning my body. And after each performance I usually get in an ice-cold tub. It’s not fun! It shocks your body, but it helps with inflammation.”

More than any other fitness workouts, Abdul loves dance fitness, especially cardio dance. This dance fuses so many styles such as ballet, salsa, hip-hop, jazz and contemporary. One of her other favorites is Pilates, which is great for strengthening the core, for training the correct use of muscles, and for overall good posture.spero and paula

  • She follows a low-alkaline diet: The Parade report says that Paula Abdul follows a low-alkaline diet, which helps her minimize inflammation in her body. She told people.com, “When you have RSD, the best thing to do is lower your acidity to slow inflammation, so I follow a low alkaline diet. I don’t like following diets but I try to keep the acidity down because that’s what causes flares up in my body.”
  • Making time for self-care: By proper scheduling and keeping the appointment, she makes time for self-care. For her, self-care is listening to her body and resting, playing with her dogs, meditation and affirmations.
  • Unwinding after a show: After a performance, Abdul’s own personal gratitude is to get quiet, stretch and meditate. She would let herself feel grateful about the entire performance, and everything and everyone that had to do with it:  the gorgeous Flamingo venue, her talented dancers, their rehearsals, the phenomenal crew, the audience, every moment of the performance, and so on, which not only helps her unwind, but it also fills her heart and energizes her in a peaceful way.
  • Plans for off days: She loves to get in touch with her family and friends by visiting them and seeing what everyone’s doing and would plan a family barbeque or a movie.
  • Her positive affirmations: For Paula, pain is also a mental battle that helps her build confidence. She looks to certain positive affirmations to strengthen her mental health and some of her favorite messages are (parade.com):
    • You can’t get to where you want to be unless you can accept where you’re at.
    • Whatever your plans are today, smile, say hello, and open the door for someone.
    • Just “Stick to it”–whatever your goals and dreams are for this day, this week, this year, this life.
    • What you don’t like, only you have the power to change.
    • If you avoid situations where you might be told ‘”No,” how will you get to your “Yes?” This so-called rejection process is part of success.
    • When taking care of others, don’t forget to nurture yourself. You cannot give if you yourself have been depleted.
    • Give yourself a quiet moment alone today and just breathe. Remember, there’s power in pause.

However, apart from all this self-care, sometimes you may require cosmetic surgery to improve your looks, confidence and self-assurance. For instance, Paula Abdul required InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite technology for her arm and lower face. Excited by her results, Paula says, “I am proud to get the word out about what InMode’s amazing technology in face and body rejuvenation can do for people like me who notice the inevitable effects of natural aging. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle of fitness and skincare routines, I still wanted more definition and tighter, firmer skin at my jawline and arms – and InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite helped me restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery. I am very pleased with the results!”

Paula Abdul is bringing her renewed feeling of confidence and self-assurance to others who want the same benefits.

Why Should You Choose Winter or Fall Season for Plastic Surgery?

Maintaining a toned body is a difficult task for women, especially after delivery. Women turn to exercise and diet in an attempt to reclaim their pre- pregnancy body shape but sometimes they are not able to achieve the desired results. BodyTite liposuction surgery is an ideal solution to contour the body and achieve an attractive appearance. This plastic surgery improves the overall appearance of the treated areas. It can remove large quantities of fat, correct irregularities from earlier procedures and sculpt delicate body parts precisely.

Why Should You Choose Winter or Fall Season for Plastic Surgery?According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), nearly a quarter million more cosmetic procedures were performed in 2018 than in 2017. Around 1.8 million cosmetic surgeries were done last year and the top plastic surgeries were breast augmentation, liposuction, nose shaping, eyelid surgery and tummy tuck. Butt augmentation also showed an increase.

A study in UK analyzed 204 questionnaires to know the factors that influenced a person’s likelihood of opting for cosmetic surgery. The study showed that the people who were more exposed to media were interested in undergoing plastic surgery.

According to the data from ASPS, three out of the top five surgical procedures in 2018 focused on the body. The number of liposuction procedures increased by more than 12,000, while surgeons performed more than 13,000 additional breast augmentations.  A small percentage of people look for other alternatives that are non-surgical and non-invasive, especially of the face and neck.  If you are considering plastic surgery, then fall and winter are the ideal seasons for it. Here are three reasons why you should choose winter or fall for plastic surgery.

  • Quick recovery: Many people choose not to go for any plastic surgery procedure, thinking about the time taken for recovery. Winter or fall is the right time for any plastic surgery as you can stay indoors for a few days and in case you want to go out, you can cover your plastic surgery scars, marks or garments with layers of clothes.
  • A great reason to stay at home: If you have a stressful job, winter vacation is the right time to have plastic surgery as it is the perfect opportunity to stay at home and recover. Make sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is close to you so that you can easily go for follow-up visits and you will also have family and friends to help you.
  • You can avoid the sun and its harmful effects: The sun can harm the skin especially when you are in the healing stage. Too much exposure to the sun could increase the recovery time because the wound may take longer to heal. Infections and scarring are a possibility. During the winter and fall seasons, the sun is not as intense as in the summer months.
  • A time to enjoy cosmetic surgery as a gift: Holidays are the best part of the winter season and the ideal time to undergo plastic surgery. Many people consider giving plastic surgery as a gift for their loved ones. This is the perfect time to give loved ones time to pamper themselves. Spouses can gift each other a plastic surgery procedure. You can also consider giving yourself a treat and choose to undergo a procedure of your choice. After the procedure, you get to relax, minimize stress and start fresh with more confidence and self esteem.

Today, various plastic surgery procedures are available for almost any part of the body, but the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly. The results are often permanent, so it is important to be sure about the decision, to approach a qualified and experienced practitioner, and to have the right motivation. If you wish to undergo BodyTite surgery or any other plastic surgery procedure in New York, then make sure to choose plastic surgeons in NYC who are trained and experienced, and focus on achieving the best results.  They provide optimal experience using the latest technologies. They also educate their patients about the procedures and weigh up all the pros and cons beforehand.

Breast lift with Fat Grafting Beneficial for Mothers after Breastfeeding

Breast lift with Fat Grafting Beneficial for Mothers after BreastfeedingBreast sagging is a common problem many women face at some stage of their life. It can happen due to many factors, and the most common ones are pregnancy and breastfeeding. It can result in undesirable changes to the breasts, including leaving them stretched and sagging. A breast lift procedure can resolve this concern and restore firm, perkier breasts. Sometimes, breast lift combined with breast augmentation in Manhattan could be the right option if you want to increase breast volume and resolve droopiness due to aging or breast feeding.

Breast lift surgery addresses saggy breasts and mainly involves repositioning of the nipple for a more natural look. The treatment reshapes and tightens the breast tissue, reduces stretched, large areole, and makes wide breasts narrower or slightly smaller. At the same time, breast enlargement in Manhattan involves inserting implants in the breasts to increase cup size and improve shape. The procedure enhances a small bust line, restores the shape of breasts that have lost volume and firmness due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, breastfeeding, and other factors. It can also correct asymmetry or differences of form, position or volume.

After breastfeeding children and losing the baby weight, the top part of women’s breasts may appear flat, and may no longer be perky. To correct this issue and low nipple position, mothers can consider breast surgery. Breast augmentation in Manhattan with breast lift would be a better option for such concerns. However, nowadays, many women don’t want implants but want fuller breasts that are shapely and attractive. But, is it possible?

When you’re nursing, the flow of milk can stretch your breast skin and tissue, which leaves some women with an “empty” or “stretched out” look to their breasts when the milk-producing structures shrink to the size they were before they got pregnant (WebMD). There can be a loss of volume at the upper breast part, accumulation of breast tissue in the outer and lower breast quadrants and down-turning of the nipple position.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) blog, there is an alternative to breast implants. Yes, it is possible to improve sagging breasts and restore the breast shape with breast lift and fat grafting after breastfeeding.

Breast lift can be performed either in conjunction with fat grafting, or as a standalone procedure. Fat grafting involves liposuction of the abdomen, thighs, flanks or bra line to remove fat, which is then processed and transferred to the breast. Fat grafting can provide a subtle increase in breast volume and also round out the upper portion of the breast, an area that frequently is “deflated” postpartum. Moreover, liposuction helps to get rid of stubborn fat around the body and would enhance the silhouette of body.

Fat grafting is also used to add volume to breasts in the composite breast augmentation procedure. This is an ideal solution for women who want a natural-looking improvement for breast size and shape. This technique offers the best of both worlds by combining fat injections and implants. When you have insufficient breast tissue it may be difficult to hold the implants, and then this combination treatment becomes effective and gives an attractive-looking outcome.

Depending on the degree of lift needed, there are three types of incisions for a breast lift. They are:

  • Peri-areolar or “Donut” Lift: This incision is ideal for small lifts, and the scar is at the edge of the areola. Women who experience mild sagging are often good candidates for this technique. The donut lift corrects mild sagging with a single scar which can be nearly invisible after the incision heals. A surgeon first creates a circular incision on or around the perimeter of the areola and then a second outer incision to remove the “donut” of skin around it. This procedure is commonly performed in conjunction with breast augmentation. It is effective in reducing areola size and the nipple is sutured back to the breast skin, tightening it in the process.
  • Circumvertical (“lollipop”): For medium lifts, this incision can be used and the scar is around the areola and vertical to the bottom of the breast. It corrects moderate sagging and provides for more extensive reshaping of breasts. This vertical lift involves two incisions:
    • One around the edge of the areola
    • The other running vertically from the bottom of the areola, creating a “lollipop” shape

    This is the most common type of incision pattern for a breast lift. It allows the surgeon to remove excess skin, preserve the nipple, and reshape the entire breast with easily hidden scars.

  • Inverted T (“anchor”): This type of breast lift incision is for larger lifts, and the scar is around the areola, vertical and in the breast crease. That is, if you need dramatic reshaping to correct extensive sagging, then this technique is the best option. This conventional mastopexy technique allows the plastic surgeon to remove a significant amount of excess skin and sagging tissue. It involves 3 incisions:
    • One around the edge of the areola
    • One vertically from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease
    • One along the inframammary fold, hidden in the breast crease.

    This incision is most commonly used when a breast reduction and lift are performed, as it causes visible scarring, but the scars will fade significantly with proper post-operative care.

However, with all three incision types, the nipple and areola remain attached to the underlying breast tissue, remaining connected to the milk ducts and nerve endings. There may be a temporary loss of nipple and areolar sensation as the small nerves around the areola are regenerating. The majority of patients can expect to maintain long-term nipple sensation and lactational ability (www.plasticsurgery.org).

If you are worried too much about scarring, then leading NYC surgeons have developed a minimally invasive scarless breast lift. Performed using BodyTite™, an FDA-approved device that uses Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology, the procedure can provide immediate, natural-looking results with minimal risk and downtime.

If you are a mother looking for breast lift without implants after breastfeeding, then find an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice that can provide the service of experienced and skilled plastic surgeons in NYC in breast lift and fat grafting. In a reliable practice, you can expect end-to-end care and support all through the treatment, right from initial consultation up to full recovery.

Study: Tummy Tuck Results May Be Affected by Prior Pregnancies

Study: Tummy Tuck Results May Be Affected by Prior PregnanciesAccording to the latest American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) report, tummy tuck was among the top five cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2018. To address a flabby tummy and achieve a trimmer, tighter midsection, consider getting tummy tuck surgery in NYC. The procedure helps improve the abdominal contour by removing excess fat and skin and in most cases, also restoring weakened or separated muscles. Being a popular option, tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is usually recommended when diet and exercise cannot provide the desired results. Though the tummy tuck results can last many years if you put in the right efforts to maintain your tummy tuck outcome, according to news reported in HealthDay Today, a new study suggests that the success of your tummy tuck may depend on whether you’ve borne children.

The report was published in the August issue of the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The researchers found that pregnancy-related widening and thinning of the belly muscles may reduce the effectiveness of tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery and is especially true in women who’ve had multiple pregnancies. According to a Healthline report, a woman should consider a tummy tuck only if she does not have any plan to become pregnant again. This is because, after a tummy tuck procedure, your abdominal wall will be more stable and stronger, and the excess skin that has been removed will not return unless there is a significant shift in your weight or a subsequent pregnancy that stretches out the area again.

But then, the study authors found a fix for this solution, where in certain cases, an alternative approach that follows the principles of hernia repair may be successful. They showed this approach in an online video and case examples of two women with recurrent bulging of the abdominal wall after tummy tuck surgery.

For the study, to assess pregnancy-related changes in the rectus muscles running along each side of the abdomen,

  • The researchers examined abdominal CT scans of 60 women (aged 18 to 45)
  • They found that the muscles are separated by a band of fibrous tissue called the linea alba and pregnancy was associated with widening of the rectus muscles.
  • The average width of the rectus muscles was 2.4 inches in women who’d never been pregnant, 2.6 inches after one pregnancy, and 2.8 inches after three or more pregnancies.
  • They also found widening of the linea alba after pregnancy.
  • There was no additional widening after multiple pregnancies.

The authors of the study concluded that “this technique may be indicated for a minority of patients. They said evaluation of muscle width during surgery may avoid patient dissatisfaction and revision procedures”.

Despite maintaining the best diet and exercise regimen, many patients are stuck with a few extra pounds around the abdomen. Mothers, in particular, often find themselves in this situation post-pregnancy. Sagging in the lower abdominal area is a common concern after pregnancy and childbirth. Once you are done having children, you can consider getting tummy tuck surgery in NYC. Tummy tuck is a popular and beneficial procedure, especially after pregnancy as it can restore the natural shape of the abdomen. It is performed using advanced liposuction devices such as Smartlipo, BodyTite and VASERlipo and offers benefits such as short downtime, minimal postsurgical trauma, minimal scarring and quick recovery.

However, you should wait at least six months to a year after delivery to have a tummy tuck, and if you’re breastfeeding, you should wait 3 to 6 months after you stop breastfeeding. Tummy tuck surgery can also be performed after a C-section, but, to get the best results, the patient should get back to her original weight and be in good health.

While tummy tuck surgery is safe and effective, experienced plastic surgeons are offering an even more advanced treatment – Brazilian tummy tuck surgery in NYC. In addition to all the benefits of a traditional abdominoplasty, this treatment offers better outcomes, greater efficiency, and reduced downtime. Brazilian Tummy Tuck surgery is a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty, the traditional elliptical excision of excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen. Invented by a Brazilian surgeon, this liposculpture technique is intended to significantly reshape the abdomen and central torso. It can provide superior waist contouring outcomes for patients who have large amounts of loose skin and fat in the abdominal area, such as that caused by multiple pregnancies.

To determine which procedure is right for you, schedule a consultation with experienced plastic surgeons in NYC. A reliable surgeon will assess your specific aesthetic concerns and determine which procedure will work to meet your goals. In an established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice, your plastic surgeon will use advanced 3D imaging technology which is important for your safety. It will also help you visualize your outcome and guide you in taking an informed decision.

InMode Stock Soars after Paula Abdul Is Named Their Brand Ambassador

spero and paulaInMode, a prominent medical technology company’s fortunes have reversed soon after the announcement that International pop icon Paula Abdul had agreed to join the Skin-Tightening Company as their brand ambassador to share her positive experience with the Company’s innovative technologies. InMode’s collaboration with pop icon Paula Abdul will definitely prove beneficial to the company. As reported by Bloomberg, the newly public InMode Ltd. surged Wednesday, August 14, 2019 after announcing Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador for its alternatives to cosmetic surgery.

Breast Implants Market to reach USD 488 Million By 2023
