What are Non-Surgical Procedures?
Non-surgical procedures involve those that are typically minimally invasive to the body and designed to rejuvenate individuals’ appearances. These procedures range from treating skin after years of damage from the that has been damaged by the effects of the sun or shows the signs of aging to removing deposits of fat in specific areas of the body that do not respond to exercise and a proper diet. Those that seek non-surgical procedures are basically satisfied with their appearance but simply want to make slight changes that result in a healthy and younger appearance.
The Best Candidates for Non-Surgical Procedures
Those that benefit from non-surgical procedures already maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and proper nutrition. Additionally, candidates are happy with the way they look but would like to correct imperfections and make minor changes to enhance their appearance without the recovery of more invasive plastic surgery.
Planning Your Non-Surgical Procedures
Non-surgical procedures are minimally invasive and do not require extensive planning on the part of the patient. The key to a successful treatment is following the directions of the surgeon before and after the procedure.
Most cosmetic non-surgical procedures are not covered by insurance so the cost may take some planning. You may be able to secure financing for the procedure or elect to set aside a budget to cover the procedures.
Preparing for Your Non-Surgical Procedures
Even though most non-surgical procedures are non or minimally invasive, it is important to be healthy in order to avoid any complications. We typically ask patients to be sure the areas to be treated are clean and free of any cosmetics, deodorants or any other chemicals and, depending on the procedure, stop taking all anti-inflammatory medicines and other supplements that may increase bleeding.
Type of Anesthesia
With non-surgical procedures, any heavy or sedative anesthesia is not required which is one reason so many patients elect to go this route for their treatments. Most often, if any pain reliever is necessary, we apply a local anesthetic to alleviate discomfort during the treatment.
There are many non-surgical procedures to correct minor issues, diminish the signs of aging and reshape areas of the body. At New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, our surgeons perform the following non-surgical procedures:
How much Do Non-Surgical Procedures Cost?
The cost of non-surgical procedures depends on the procedure to be performed as well as the extent of the area and the procedure itself.

Additionally, we offer financing options via CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM.
