Cosmetic Surgery Educational Seminars

Kelly O'Neil MDSeminars are given by Dr Kelly O’Neil, a Cosmetic Surgeon, to educate potential aesthetic patients about new advances and technologies in Facial Rejuvenation. Nonsurgical procedures and techniques are explored and compared to conventional surgical procedures.

In the last 5 years Cosmetic and Plastic surgery procedures have dropped 25-30% while, at the same time, nonsurgical cosmetic procedures have risen over 100%. Patients prefer nonsurgical procedures because they are less invasive, safer, and less expensive. Also, there are no scars involved. When properly performed; non-surgical cosmetic procedures are usually more natural looking as well.

Examples of non-surgical modalities to be discussed are Botox, Fillers (Restylane and Juvederm), liquid face and handlifts, chemical peels, ultrasound skin tightening, nonsurgical facelifts, lasers (fraxel), and radio frequency (Thermage, Titan). Dr O’Neil will demonstrate and explain why non-surgical technologies are superior to surgery for the removal of facial wrinkles and sun damage.

Modern techniques of body contouring such as Smartlipo and Tumescent Liposculpture will also be discussed as well as how to tighten skin or body areas such as abdomen or arms without surgery.

The following locations are sites for our upcoming seminars.  Seminars begin at 2:30pm and last until 4 pm.  During the seminar, Dr. O’Neil will speak on his procedures and show a “Before and After” slide presentation on his Skin Rejuvenation, Body Contouring and Liquid Facelift.  Following the seminar, he will offer brief, complimentary consultations for those interested in scheduling a procedure.  This is a great opportunity for you to meet Dr. O’Neil and visit with past patients who have had work done by Dr. O’Neil and who will share their experience and their new look with you.

If you are a past patient, you may pass this along to a friend if you cannot attend.  If your friend books a procedure, Dr. O’Neil will send you a gift certificate for complimentary Botox or Dermal filler (up to $750 value).  Don’t wait, call Sue, email us or fill out the contact box below to RSVP for yourself and a friend.
