Frequently Asked Questions about the Scarless Breast Lift

Scarless Breast LiftLoss of skin elasticity due to aging and pregnancy are the main factors that contribute to sagging breasts. Breast lift surgery or mastopexy is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses this aesthetic concern. According to recent reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1. The treatment eliminates excess skin and tissue, resolves droopiness, and elevates the breasts to an aesthetically pleasing position. Unlike breast augmentation, a breast lift is mainly focused on improving the breast position and will not increase the size of your bust.

A traditional breast lift involves incisions and scarring, which makes most women hesitate to go ahead with the procedure. Fortunately, skilled plastic surgeons have come up with the scarless breast lift in NYC, a minimally-invasive technique that involves no scars.

Women considering a scarless breast lift in NYC need to make sure that they know everything about it in order to make an informed decision. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about the procedure.

  • What is a scarless breast lift?

A scarless breast lift or BodyTite Perky Lift procedure can resolve sagging and restore firm, perkier breasts, without leaving any scars behind. The procedure lifts drooping breasts, tightens loose breast skin, and enhances the shape of the breasts. The highlight of the scarless breast lift is that it provides immediate, natural-looking results – with minimal risk and short downtime.

This minimally invasive scarless procedure is performed using BodyTite™, an FDA-approved device that uses Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology. The BodyTite electrode is applied to the treatment area, while the device’s cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a small incision made for the purpose. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver radiofrequency energy that can achieve immediate skin contraction at the surface of the skin, and simultaneously increase the production of collagen to improve skin structure and tighten the skin, thereby providing a better outcome.

  • How does the scarless breast lift differ from the conventional procedure?

Unlike traditional breast lift surgery that requires general anesthesia, the scarless procedure requires only local anesthesia. It avoids the needs for IV sedation or general anesthetic associated with traditional surgery. The minimally invasive BodyTite Perky Lift involves less procedure time than the surgical breast lift. It is designed to provide results without significant downtime or weeks of recovery.

  • What are the benefits of the scarless breast lift?

This scarless technique offers many benefits:

  • Improves breast symmetry
  • Reshapes the breasts without invasive surgical methods
  • Natural looking, long-lasting results
  • Immediate skin tightening, with results continuing to improve over time
  • Improved skin structure with collagen production
  • Needs only local anesthesia, which means lower anesthesia-related risks and short downtime
  • Shorter recovery time than the traditional breast lift
  • Who is a good candidate for BodyTite Perky Lift?

You would be considered a good candidate for a scarless breast lift in NYC if you meet the following criteria:

  • Want to restore breast shape following pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Are in good general health
  • Have relatively small breasts with mild to moderate sagging that need only a small amount of lift and/or nipple elevation.
  • Have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • Have breasts that are pendulous or have a flat, elongated shape
  • Have asymmetrical or unusually shaped breasts
  • Have not had or do not currently have breast implants
  • Want to avoid a traditional breast lift and scarring
  • Do not have a history of breast cancer or prior breast radiation
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome
  • Do not smoke
  • What should I expect during the recovery period?

In most cases, patients resume their normal activities soon after the procedure. Moderate bruising or swelling may occur around the breasts, but these side effects will subside in the coming days. You will be asked to avoid strenuous activity until healing is complete. Results vary from patient to patient based on individual considerations and are noticeable in as little as one week. Final outcomes appear in about three to six months.

New York City breast augmentation and breast lift surgery experts provide customized treatment in AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices. Do your research well before choosing a surgeon.

Paula Abdul Revisits her ‘Coming to America’ Wedding Choreography Experience on Yahoo Entertainment

Paula Abdul Revisits One of Her African Choreography ExperienceInternational pop icon and brand ambassador of InMode, Paula Abdul is in the news for sharing her cosmetic treatment experiences with the company’s minimally invasive technologies FaceTite and BodyTite. Paula is all praise for these modalities that helped to sculpt her face and arms before the launch of her Las Vegas Residency, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl”.

Recently, on Yahoo Entertainment, Paula recalled her groundbreaking African choreography in ‘Coming to America’s famous wedding scene, which she referred to as one of the things she is most proud of.

“To this day, a lot of people don’t know that I choreographed Coming to America,” said Paula.

Paula recalled how John Landis, the director of ‘Coming to America’ wanted to meet with the girl who choreographed Janet Jackson. She was still choreographing for the Lakers and Janet Jackson when she got the call from him. Vying for the job and keeping her true age as a secret, when she was turning 18, she managed to convince the director to give her a shot. She knew she had to prove herself as John Landis thought she would be older and more experienced.

Having grown up in the L.A. suburbs of the San Fernando Valley, Paula had to do her research well to create a credible African dance routine worthy of the big screen. This was quite challenging as back then “there was no internet, of course – so no YouTube” that she “could make reference and look up. She relied on library and periodicals and created her own style of choreography, which she thought would be right for the movie. The director loved it”!

Though she has many achievements of which she could be proud, Paula’s ‘Coming to America’ wedding choreography was special. She says, “There were lots of intensive rehearsals, and it was hardcore; it was a lot of work. It was not an easy thing to accomplish, but it’s one of the things I’m most proud of.”

Paula also told Yahoo Entertainment that having a residency in Las Vegas had always been on her bucket list. She describes her Forever Your Girl revue as a “celebration of the many facets of my career for the past few decades. I talk about my humble beginnings. I do storytelling with me talking and also storytelling visually through dance. It’s just very unique and it’s really fun.”

Talking about her self-care routine, Paula said that she does lot of physical training to prepare for a show, especially one like her residency. Today, the 57-year-old pop star credits the InMode aesthetic treatment FaceTite and BodyTite and an alkaline diet for keeping her looking practically how she did when she was 18.

Paula has discussed her experiences with InMode’s minimally invasive and no scar procedures on several talk shows. She said that these radiofrequency-assisted treatments helped her achieve natural looking results with no visible scarring and little downtime.

Dr. Spero Theodorou, bodySCULPT’s leading plastic surgeon who is also the chief medical officer of InMode, invented EmbraceRF which combines two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 to address aging concerns in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area – without surgery.

10 Tips to Mentally Prepare for Plastic Surgery

Mentally Prepare for Plastic SurgeryMaking a decision to undergo a plastic surgery procedure might feel easy and evoke both excitement and anticipation in your mind. However, it’s quite natural to be apprehensive before any operation, including plastic surgery. It’s important to deal with this anxiousness before the surgery to avoid any negative impact on your physical and mental well-being. For instance, if you are getting a facelift in NYC, preparing mentally for the procedure will help you get through the treatment and recovery more easily and also help you achieve optimal results.

The following tips can promote a calm state of mind and help you prepare mentally your procedure:

  1. Have clear knowledge about the procedure: Knowing what to expect ahead of time can make a huge difference. Make sure that you have all the basic information regarding the procedure beforehand. This will help you feel confident in your decision and prepare for it. Spend a considerable amount of time researching the procedure and ask your surgeon for all the important details. If there things about the surgery that make you overly apprehensive, it could be a warning that you need to take an educated decision about going ahead with it. You can decide to wait to have the treatment or see if there are alternative options to approach the problem.
  2. Time your surgery carefully: It is advisable to avoid having plastic surgery during or immediately after a stressful period in your life. If your emotional reserves are already exhausted, this may make it more challenging to deal with surgery.
  3. Have realistic expectations: It’s important to have realistic goals and expectations about the outcomes of a procedure. In many cases, results are dramatic and life changing. However, plastic surgery has limitations and setting your expectations too high can lead to disappointment. NYC plastic surgeons assess patients to make sure their expectations are based on achievable, realistic goals.
  4. Make sure you’re having the aesthetic procedure for yourself: When you are considering a plastic surgery procedure, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Getting plastic surgery to please or impress someone else should be strictly avoided. Plastic surgeons often have patients who want to have a procedure just to impress someone – their spouse, boyfriend, or friends. It’s important to understand that you should never consider plastic surgery simply because someone else wants you to change your appearance. You should have a procedure only if you want to do it, and for no other reason. So before you go under the knife or the needle, ask yourself, “Am I doing this for myself?”
  5. Only trust credible, certified cosmetic surgeons: If you are considering a body contouring procedure, the first step is to find the right plastic surgeon. You need to understand the traits of a good plastic surgeon – make sure that the surgeon you approach is qualified and experienced, and has proven his/her proficiency in performing your chosen aesthetic procedure. You must have a clear idea about your cosmetic goals and be able to convey this to your plastic surgeon. Finalize your decision regarding the surgeon only if you trust and are comfortable with him/her.
  6. Share questions and concerns with your surgeon: If you need any clarifications regarding the steps in a surgery or the post-op, get in touch with the clinic or your surgeon as soon as possible. You must have a clear idea about your cosmetic goals and should be able to convey this to your plastic surgeon. For that, prepare a set of questions to ask him/her: the number of successful procedures the surgeon has performed and the techniques used. Also request to view before and after photos of former patients. This will help assure that you have made the right choice. Finalize your decision only if you find that you can trust and feel comfortable with the surgeon.
  7. Develop patience for final results: Plastic surgery is a process and the results don’t come instantly. Be patient with the healing process and depending on what procedure you receive understand that it will take several weeks to months to feel “normal” again. It may also take many months/year to see the end results of your surgery.
  8. Make an informed decision: Not everyone is a good candidate for plastic surgery. People with health issues such as heart disease, hemophilia or a bleeding disorder, lung disease, heavy smoking/drinking, high blood pressure, obesity, severe allergies and high cholesterol should have a candid discussion with their physician or specialist to make sure they can go ahead with plastic surgery. It’s important to make an informed decision based on your health.
  9. Practice healthy habits: Prior surgery to start developing healthy habits because being physically healthy can help improve your mental health. Go for walks, drink more water, eat more fruits and vegetables, reduce alcohol consumption, stop smoking, and get plenty of sleep.
  10. Arrange for post-op support: Make sure you have someone you trust to help you post-op. Although this may not be necessary for procedures performed at an outpatient facility, having assistance can reduce potential stress during the first few days of recovery.

People have plastic surgery to improve their self-confidence and self-image. That’s why it’s important to take steps to ensure that you are mentally and physically ready before the procedure. If you are considering body contouring in NYC, choose an AAAASF-accredited practice. This would ensure adherence to strict national standards for equipment, operating room safety, personnel, and surgeon credentials.

Paula Abdul Shares her InMode Cosmetic Experience on the BUILD Series by Yahoo

Paula Abdul Shares her InMode Cosmetic Experience on the BUILD Series by YahooPop legend Paula Abdul is making headlines for three reasons – one, for her ongoing Las Vegas Residency, second, for her admission about having cosmetic surgery before the launch of her Residency, and last but not least, becoming brand ambassador for InMode. On a Yahoo BUILD episode aired on October 3, Paula openly talked about the procedures she had when the host praised her saying, “You look amazing!”

Paula said she was 57 years old and aware of how gravity influences aging. She wanted to keep her appearance up and look a little refreshed ahead of the launch of her show in Las Vegas, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl”. She had always dreamt of getting a sleeker jawline and said she thought this was the perfect time to get something done about it. But Paula was not ready to have an incision and invasive plastic surgery.

Paula said she didn’t want to look different and just wanted a more youthful profile. The singer looked around for a solution and found InMode. FaceTite and BodyTite from InMode helped Paula achieve her aesthetic goals. She said that this radiofrequency-assisted procedure helped her achieve her goals with no visible scarring. Paula mentioned that it stimulates collagen and provides very natural looking results, and that she would recommend to everyone. InMode’s technology proved the right option to address age-related aesthetic concerns in her arms, lower face, jawline and neck. Paula also mentioned that she walked out the house in two days post-op!

On a Wendy Williams talk show which was aired earlier this month, the host praised Paula for “never” aging. Paula went on to openly discuss the procedures that transformed her appearance.

Invented by Dr. Spero Theodorou, bodySCULPT’s leading plastic surgeon who is also the chief medical officer of InMode, EmbraceRF combines two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 to address aging concerns in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area – without surgery.

InMode and Paula Abdul Support Breast Cancer Awareness

InMode and Paula Abdul Support Breast CancerOctober is observed as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign organized to highlight the importance of early detection and treatment of breast cancer, one of the most common cancers found in American women. The campaign starts on October 1 and ends on October 31. This year, InMode, a prominent medical technology company and its brand ambassador, Paula Abdul, International Pop icon, have come together in support of Breast Cancer Awareness with #INMODEBCA.

Along with that, InMode and Paula Abdul also arranges a “CONTEST ALERT”, by giving one lucky follower the chance to win a concert package to see “PAULA ABDUL: FOREVER YOUR GIRL”. They organize this contest to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness and @fightingpretty, a mission to help women battling cancer feel strong & beautiful. InMode will also donate $1 to Fighting Pretty for every entry. ⁣⁣

According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness month is observed with the aim to reduce these numbers.

InMode 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. This year, InMode along with Paula Abdul have come forward to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Paula Abdul has joined InMode as their brand ambassador to share her positive experience with the Company’s BodyTite, FaceTite and Morpheus8 technologies. Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou, MD of bodySCULPT in NYC, who is also InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, notes that Paula is an excellent choice as InMode’s brand ambassador.

In 2014, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Paula along with a women’s foundation launched a powerful new call to action – #CheckYourself – that features the release of a new music video created and led by her. It is a global movement that aims to raise awareness and start conversations about how women and men can take action for their own breast health through screening, detection and treatment.

According to Paula Abdul OFFICIAL FAN SITE, she said, “Singing and dancing are my passions. I am thrilled and inspired to have had the opportunity to apply these passions to create a new music video in support of the breast cancer awareness cause, and the new global #CheckYourself for Breast Cancer campaign is very personal for me.” She also shares that her sister Wendy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 and as a breast cancer survivor and champion for the cause, she inspires Paula every day.

Early detection of breast cancer is important to avoid further complications. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, “when breast cancer is detected early and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 98%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms.”

Paula Abdul Opens Up about Cosmetic Procedures she had Ahead of Las Vegas Residency

Singer, dancer, choreographer and pop legend Paula Abdul’s made news recently with her admission about having cosmetic surgery. She is set to kick off the second leg of her Forever Your Girl Las Vegas residency on October 22. Appearing on “The Wendy Williams Show” on October 3, Paula openly talked about the procedures she had when the host praised her for “never” aging. The 57-year-old singer admitted to having aesthetic treatment because she wanted a “little sleeker jawline” before launching her Las Vegas residency. InMode’s minimally-invasive BodyTite/FaceTite technology helped her achieve her goals. In fact, Paula has been roped in as brand ambassador for InMode in August.

“Women of our age, we start really looking for aesthetic treatments that resonate with you. I was thinking, I’m going to have my residency, I want to do something but I wasn’t ready to have the big incisions or any face lift,” Paula said on The Wendy Williams show.

After hearing about InMode’s minimally-invasive and no scar procedures, she decided to give it a try. The BodyTite system proved the ideal option to sculpt and remodel Paula’s arms while EmbraceRF that combines two powerful InMode technologies, FaceTite and Morpheus8, addressed her lower face, jawline and neck. Paula said that what she loved about InMode’s technology is it’s minimally invasive and involves no visible scars and no big incisions.

Her host’s remark, “I don’t see anything, except a flat neck” confirm the successful outcomes.

Unlike more extensive cosmetic surgery, which requires general anesthesia, InMode’s minimally-invasive radiofrequency assisted procedures need only local anesthesia. Paula said she was given an Ativan, an anti-anxiety medication and that her procedure took an hour, maybe less. Downtime was minimal too – she was “walking around two or three days later”, she told the show’s host.

At age 57, Paula looks as good as some women half her age and has the physique to show it. Though she is very physically active and keeps fit with her workout routine that includes a lot of stretching and back and core work, she acknowledges the aging effects that gravity can have on the body. InMode’s technology proved the right option to address age-related aesthetic concerns in her arms, lower face, jawline and neck.

Excited by her results, Paula wants to share what the BodyTite/FaceTite procedure did for her and can do for others. She said, ”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!”

Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou, MD of bodySCULPT in NYC who is also InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, noted that Paula was an excellent choice as InMode’s brand ambassador.

provides-long lasting attractive result

Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC invented BodyTite on Arms, a scarless arm lift procedure. This is an innovative RF 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. Dr Theodorou also developed EmbraceRF, a unique one-time facial rejuvenation solution effectively treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area.

Scarless Arm Lift Surgery – The Latest Advancement in Brachioplasty

Sagging, flabby upper arms are a major aesthetic concern among many women, and one which often intensifies as they age. Caused by factors such as excessive weight loss, heredity, and natural aging, flabby upper arms most often do not respond to even rigorous diet and exercise. The only option that was available to address the problem was a traditional arm lift or brachioplasty. However, while the procedure can remove a large amount of fat, it involves extensive downtime and long scars which are difficult to camouflage. But now, scarless arm lift surgery in NYC provides patients with excellent results without incisions, unsightly scars, and long downtime.

NYC plastic surgeons perform this highly efficient minimally-invasive procedure using the FDA approved BodyTite device. BodyTite uses Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology to selectively remove excess fat deposits from the upper arms and provides you with well-shaped arms without incision scars.

Traditional invasive arm lift surgery or brachioplasty requires administering general anesthesia to create a long incision to extract the unwanted fat from the upper arm region, which would involve surgical trauma, longer downtime, and slow healing. On the other hand, BodyTite RFAL melts the subcutaneous fat, coagulates the blood vessels, and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. The procedure requires only local anesthesia and comes with minimal pain and downtime. Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite arm lift leaves no scars and is recognized for its special ability to tighten the skin up to 40% more than conventional liposuction. This is a “gap” procedure for many patients who may be turned away for liposuction alone but are not severe enough for the traditional brachioplasty.

BodyTite in NYC begins with the surgeon marking the treatment site and administering local anesthesia to numb it. Once the area is numb, a small incision will be made to insert the BodyTite hand piece to deliver focused energy into the site. The radiofrequency (RF) energy liquefies the unwanted fat cells quickly, allowing them to be easily removed. As the procedure tightens the skin and coagulates the tissues, it helps the surgeon sculpt the arms to the ideal shape. The scarless arm lift takes approximately 30-45 minutes, though this would depend on the extent of the area treated and other individual considerations. The procedure improves sagging, wrinkled skin with less downtime and provides long-lasting, attractive results – with no scars.

However, only a good candidate can reap all the benefits of scarless arm lift surgery in NYC. Ideal candidates are those who have sagging upper arms, good skin elasticity, and a stable weight.

Recently, international pop icon Paula Abdul, who is also now brand ambassador of InMode, underwent treatment using InMode’s BodyTite for her arms as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Even though she maintained a healthy lifestyle with fitness and skincare routines, she still needed definition and tighter, firmer skin on her arms. Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou MD of bodySCULPT in NYC who is also InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, 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.”

Paula is pleased with the results she achieved with BodyTite’s arm lift. The procedure helped her restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery. Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are inventors of the innovative BodyTite on arms / scarless arm lift procedure.

spero and paula

Since scarless arm lift involves only minimal surgical trauma and downtime, most patients return to their routine activities soon. But actual recovery time can vary depending on the comprehensiveness of the procedure – the amount of fat removed and the extent of the area treated. Most patients are able to get back to routine activity within 48 hours, without experiencing any risks or complications. One study found that 81% patients returned to work within 1-3 days of the procedure. However, arm exercises should be delayed for at least 6-8 weeks.

It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions on exercise and other matters after arm lift surgery to obtain optimal results. A healthy lifestyle is necessary to maintain the outcomes.

As the BodyTite scarless arm lift involves a specialized liposuction technique, it’s important that you choose a plastic surgeon who is an expert at it. An experienced plastic surgeon in NYC can provide you with effective, long-lasting arm contouring results. In an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice, you can expect end-to-end care and support all through the treatment, right from initial consultation till full recovery.

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.”
