In a society where time is of the essence, consideration for having cosmetic surgery does not have to be dismissed. Many patients strive for facial rejuvenation but may not have the time off that surgical procedures demand for recovery. Fortunately, Dr. Matthew Conrad offers injectables that can have you looking great in less than an hour and get you back to your daily routine immediately afterwards. These “lunch hour” procedures will deliver great results and have you prepared for that big event with a more youthful appearance.
Rather than sitting down at a restaurant on your lunch hour, optimize your time by visiting Dr. Conrad’s office. Grab a bite on the go and freshen up that facial expression at the same time. BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers will help to obtain that vivacious look without the downtime required for healing. They are non-invasive anti-aging procedures that fill in wrinkles and add volume the face.
Another quick procedure to consider is Dysport®, which is similar to BOTOX®. Both successfully reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles with results lasting 3 to 10 months. In addition, fillers such as and Restylane-L®, Perlane-L®, JUVÉDERM® XC, PREVELLE™ Silk Dermal Filler, and RADIESSE® can also reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, folds, and scars. These procedures typically take less than an hour, and patients are able to return to work and their normal activities the very same day. The results are immediate and last from between 6 to 12 months. Not only do these procedures provide quick results, but they are also a great alternative for those who are a little apprehensive about committing to surgery.
Although injectables are great options for those on the go, the results are only temporary. In addition, “lunch hour” procedures cannot improve sagging facial tissue or provide permanent results. To effectively treat these issues, a facelift or other facial surgical procedure will give greater and longer lasting results. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon will help determine which options will best achieve the results you desire.
If you are seeking to improve your facial appearance, feel free to contact Dr. Matthew Conrad to schedule a consultation today. Dr. Matthew Conrad is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and offers both non-invasive and surgical procedures to meet your individual needs.

According to TIME Magazine’s list of the Top Ten Commonly Broken New Year’s Resolutions, people seem to struggle most with losing weight, quitting smoking, saving money, and reducing stress. With your dream plastic surgery procedure as your motivation, you would be surprised how easy it is to achieve these difficult resolutions. Here’s how:
1. Lose weight
Many people are not aware that liposuction and tummy tuck procedures are not intended for weight loss. Patients who maintain a healthy weight for their height often experience the best results with these procedures, which is why not everyone is a candidate. Especially if you primarily have visceral fat in the abdomen (which makes your stomach appear very round and hard), a reputable physician will likely discourage you from this type of surgery. Since visceral fat is located deep within the abdomen and surrounds vital organs, it cannot be reached with liposuction or tummy tuck surgery. Patients who first lose the weight find that these procedures make a fantastic reward for working hard to get healthy. With liposuction or abdominoplasty, they can achieve the healthy body they have always dreamed of, both inside and out.
2. Quit Smoking
Study after study has indicated that smoking greatly influences surgical outcome and recovery. It constricts blood vessels, which can lead to a longer recovery period, wound separation, and raised scars. Nicotine can cause anesthesia complications, which can lead to very serious side-effects, including heart attack and stroke. Those who are considering plastic surgery must not have smoked for at least two weeks prior to their procedure. Consider using surgery as a motivation to quit the habit for good!
3. Save Money
What makes a “good deal” good is when it’s worth it to you. Dr. Conrad offers various financing options that will make the procedure of your dreams more affordable. With the cost of your surgery on the horizon, odds are you will be all the more motivated to pinch pennies elsewhere.
4. Be Less Stressed
For many people, their wrinkled skin, sagging breasts, or protruding abdomen can become something they think of and worry about on a daily basis. They may even avoid social events and miss out on important activities because of the way they look. This unhealthy way of thinking can cause anxiety that will negatively impact their quality of life. Scheduling a consultation can help ease patients’ stress with the knowledge that there is a solution to their concern, and soon their needs will be met.
