It goes without saying that cosmetic surgery alters one’s appearance. But according to Dr. Tammy Polit, cosmetic medicine when combined with regenerative techniques can affect aspects of the whole person, improving both physical and emotional health. “We aim to provide each individual client with an amazing transformation,” said Dr. Polit. “How one looks and feels about oneself really does define one’s life.”
From the beginning of her medical career, which began about 30 years ago, Dr. Polit knew that she was visually and mechanically inclined, and that she wanted to go into a surgical procedure-centered residency. In 2006, she found herself on the path of cosmetic medicine with a particular interest in liposuction. After a few years of specialized training, she opened her own practice in 2010, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Dr. Polit described her work not just as a science, but as an art. “It’s amazing to me that we can sculpt faces and bodies with our procedures. It’s a true art form,” she marveled. Dr. Polit loves working with clients to help them achieve not only their cosmetic goals, but to become healthier in every aspect of their lives.
One of the main procedures offered by Beautopia is sculpting of the face and body while avoiding scarring: tumescent liposuction. This type of liposuction is in high demand as patients are numbed with local anesthesia and don’t have the consequences of general anesthesia. There is no down time as the clients can exercise the same day of surgery and can drive the following day.
“The true beauty of this type of liposuction is that it is basically scar-free,” Dr. Polit noted. Tiny dot incisions are used to access the areas, and after the healing, there is virtually no evidence that any surgery has been done. It allows the client to have a beautiful shape without a large, unsightly scar. Lastly and most importantly, the techniques used include a laser to achieve excellent skin tightening without the need for surgical removal, which causes scarring.
Dr. Polit shared that both men and women are constantly searching for less-invasive fat-reduction procedures that have proven results. When fat is physically removed and the areas are sculpted, the results are permanent and undeniable. Since many people are not aware that this option is available, Dr. Polit’s goal is to share this important information with as many people as possible so that they can make an informed choice. Before-and-after photos of actual clients can be found at MedBeautopia.com. Prospective patients can search images of various body shapes to find a body type that they think looks similar to theirs. The “after” photos are typical results that the client can expect to see after the procedure, Dr. Polit explained.
Almost any area of excessive fat pads can be removed and/or sculpted, such as upper and lower abdomen, waist, chin and neck, arms, inner thighs, saddlebags, buttocks/banana roll, flanks, hips, back, and more. The best part, she reiterated, is that this is all performed with no general anesthesia, no scar, and no down time.
Other main procedures offered at Beautopia include the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), which can be used not only for cosmetic purposes (including hair restoration and dermal fillers), but for repair and regeneration of injuries and dysfunction. The procedure goes like this: a blood sample is taken from your arm and then processed to separate out the platelets and growth factors. Once processed, the PRP and/or PRF can be used throughout the body to stimulate the body to heal itself. Problem areas that can be treated include painful joints, tendons, and ligaments that are not functioning well or repairing well or have lost cartilage.
“The body is always trying to heal itself,” said Dr. Polit, “and when we provide the body with building blocks and tools through signaling cells, the body is able to move forward to complete the repair.” In fact, there are frequent cases when surgery is no longer needed at all after PRP/PRF since the body can heal itself.
Collagen rejuvenation and youthful skin restoration are also advanced techniques for these reparative procedures. Through cutting-edge technology, complex filler techniques and rejuvenation procedures can be “super-boosted” to provide clients with exceptional results that are not available at other offices. In addition, the use of these technologies provides long-lasting, spectacular results that actually improve as time goes on to fight aging changes and overall volume loss.
“We work diligently to be able to offer the most advanced techniques for our clients,” said Dr. Polit. “Whether it’s deflated cheeks, sagging skin on the face or undereye bags, our techniques are transformational.”
Sometimes women’s and men’s intimate problems can be addressed with these reparative procedures such as PRP, PRF, shockwave therapy, radio frequency procedures, and ozone therapy. Other procedures that we offer at Beautopia include Hydrafacial MD, IPL facials, red light and infrared light therapies, ThermiSmooth and ThermiVa, shockwave therapy, ozone therapy, vein treatments/sclerotherapy, and cellulite treatments.
As medical technology changes rapidly, Dr. Polit travels and presents at conferences throughout the year to keep a pulse on the most cutting-edge techniques and research. Her techniques are always based on the latest medical procedures targeting best outcomes and best results based on global research in a number of targeted physician groups focused on cosmetic, regenerative, and anti-aging medicine.
For those clients who are ready to move forward, these procedures can propel and prepare them for the next level of success in life. These days, Dr. Polit said, clients are ready for positive results with positive experiences. She acknowledged that every client has a different background, experience, and circumstance, and Beautopia combines the individual goals and contexts of each client with personalized plans for their needs.
“The most fulfilling part of cosmetic and regenerative medicine is helping clients achieve goals that they have not been able to reach previously,” Dr. Polit said. “Success on their part is success on our part.”
