Plastic Surgery: Not Just for the Stars

Plastic surgery is no longer the exclusive domain of movie stars.

Dr. Daniel Ward, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with the
University of Utah’s new South Jordan Health Center, says cosmetic
procedures are more accessible and affordable that you might think.

Who considers facial plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures?

Cosmetic procedures have never been more accessible or affordable, and so
the people who are considering it has really expanded in the past decade. It’s
no longer the exclusive domain of movie stars. Most of my clients are people
who take good care of themselves and want to look as good as they feel. We
see people of all ages, both men and women who want to appear more
youthful and energetic.

What kind of services are offered at the new South Jordan Health Center?

My office offers the full range of in-office rejuvenation and cosmetic surgery
in a beautiful, private environment. For all of our procedures we start with a
personal consultation to discover what you want to accomplish, and then
determine the best procedure to meet your goals.

What in-office rejuvenation procedures are available?

There are three types of procedures we use to treat premature wrinkling, sun
damage, acne scars, and pre-cancerous skin growths: Botox, fillers, and skin

BOTOX® and Dysport are prescription medicine that are injected into
muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the
eyebrows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time
(temporary). Relaxing the muscles in these areas can help rid the face of
unwanted wrinkles and burrows that may give off a tired or angry expression.

Skin resurfacing is used to eliminate fine lines, even out skin pigmentation
(freckles and age spots), soften scars (such as from acne), and reduce the
signs of sun damage.

With chemical peeling we use a chemical solution to improve the skin’s

Similar to a chemical peel, dermabrasion is a procedure that removes fine
wrinkles and/or minimizes scars on the skin. The difference between a
chemical peel and dermabrasion, however, is the method used.
Dermabrasion involves our surgeon utilizing a high speed rotating brush to
remove the top layer of skin. The size and depth of the scars, as well as the
degree of wrinkling, determine the appropriate level of skin that will be
surgically sloughed.

Laser resurfacing is one of the great advances in cosmetic plastic surgery. We
use a laser that utilizes Carbon Dioxide and seals tiny capillaries and lymph
vessels, decreasing post treatment swelling. The laser can also removal
precancerous skin lesions.

Collagen injectable fillers are a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed
to correct wrinkles, depressions in the skin, and/or scarring. The procedure
involves injecting a substance (collagen) into the skin in order to plump or
fill-up the area being treated. For some, however, the collagen injections can
stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, lengthening the time
necessary between follow-up injections.

We have a number of cosmetic surgery procedures that men and women can
choose from in order to create an image that makes them feel more
confident and comfortable with their appearance. Our facial plastic and
reconstructive specialists are specially skilled in the structure and build of
the face and have been trained in the latest treatments in facial plastic
surgery. To help you determine if cosmetic surgery is the right decision for
you, please schedule an appointment.
