Dr. Behrooz Torkian Chats With NewBeauty About Mommy Makeovers
Behrooz Torkian, MD, a Beverly Hills-based surgeon, recently spoke with NewBeauty about his approach to achieving ideal results from "Mommy makeovers." Below is an excerpt from Your Mommy Makeover's Nonsurgical Finishing Touch, as seen in NewBeauty.
For Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon Behrooz Torkian, MD, VirtueRF is an indispensable way to reach a patient’s final goal body. “Many of our previous methods, like radiofrequency only devices that go beneath the skin, got us part of the way there,” Dr. Torkian explains. “But they left a lot of things on the table. They couldn’t address fine lines, stretch marks or crinkly skin, which were all serious issues patients wanted to solve. VirtueRF, which combines radiofrequency with microneedling and delivers energy at precise depths, has become that finalizing step to tighten and improve skin texture and laxity.
Just as a good workout is made up of a variety of exercises, a Mommy makeover should involve a combination of solutions that target different concerns: the bulk, the muscle and the skin. Dr. Torkian targets body tissue and muscle using the PHYSIQ device.
“Using a combination of VirtueRF’s DeepRF handpiece and the PHYSIQ treatment, we can treat loose and crepey skin and then tone and tighten up the muscle with the energy stimulation on the PHYSIQ,” Dr. Torkian explains. “We call this combination therapy, the ‘BodyRight’ treatment.”
For Dr. Torkian’s Los Angeles patients, these treatments are perfect ways to achieve that finishing touch of definition that traditional methods like surgery just won’t get you to.
