At 41 years old, Missoula resident Andrew B. was feeling great about his life. A divorced father with a successful business, he spent his time caring for his daughter as well as taking care of himself: he ate right and worked out at the gym regularly with a personal trainer. However, he felt that although he was making the right choices and putting effort into how he looked and felt, he was still seeing a few signs of aging: a little stubborn fat despite his muscular build and a some wear on his face.
After a lot of thought and a lot of research, Andrew visited the Surgical Arts Centre for two different non-surgical cosmetic procedures:
- Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound waves to lift and tighten the skin on the cheeks, neck, and brow.
- SculpSure, which uses heat to destroy fat cells in problem areas of the body, including the stomach and flank.
“They say that 40 is the new 30, and at 41, I still feel really young,” Andrew said. “But I didn’t want to be 50 and regret not doing it when I was 40, when I could get all of the maximum benefits and when I could enjoy looking my best right away.”
First he received the Ultherapy, which he said made him both look better and feel better. Then he received a SculpSure procedure, which targeted the problem spot of fat around his waist that didn’t budge despite his workouts. He has seen results from both procedures and said that other people notice, too.
“If you look younger or if you feel better mentally, you just feel better overall,” he said. “I work out a lot at the gym, I follow a diet so that I look good and stay fit. But we all hide fat somewhere and we all age. If I’m working hard, why not look good?”
Andrew said he felt confident about the procedures because they were both FDA approved and both conducted by a medical doctor. In addition, neither procedure was painful and neither required recovery time – he even went hiking right after his SculpSure procedure.
“I’ve had women say that something about you looks different, you look youthful. It’s working and I can tell that it’s working,” he said. “For fathers that are out there, or if there was a mom who wanted to buy their husband something, I would tell them to definitely do it. Why wouldn’t you want to look the best that you can? we all age, but it’s aging more gracefully, which is why I chose to do it. I want to keep up with my daughter. I want to stay young for my daugher and for me.”
Andrew would make the decision to have the two procedures again – and is booking another SculpSure procedure soon.
“Some people would say that they are vain, but I think when you look good, you feel good,” he said. “You perform better at your job and in your relationships. In my own experience, my confidence has grown. When you get compliments from women who say you look great, it makes you feel good. And who doesn’t like to feel good?”
