How Does It Work?
Once you’ve consulted with Dr. Hevia, our expert team will help you schedule your procedure.
The surgery itself consists of four phases: surgical preparation, numbing, suction, and post-surgical care.
Surgical preparation includes photography and a detailed review of the areas that will be treated during the procedure. Dr. Hevia will mark your skin with the specific areas and contours that he will be focusing on.
During the numbing phase, lidocaine will be injected directly into the area that will be treated. You’ll be awake and comfortable, having conversations with your surgical team throughout the procedure.
During the virtually pain-free suction phase, Dr. Hevia will suction out fat from the designated areas.
Finally, your surgical team will apply your post-surgical dressings and garments once Dr. Hevia has completed the procedure. You will receive a detailed plan for your post-treatment home care before being discharged. Most patients can resume their regular activities after just a couple of days, and can return to the gym in just 2 weeks!

As a Miami Cosmetic Dermatologist, I see many patients who enjoy the benefits of our year-round favorable climate. However, as a result of the appealing draw of the sun and sea, Floridians must take extra precautions to avoid the irreversible effects of sun damage to their skin.
We all dread the effects of the natural aging process and if you live in Miami, it is difficult not to become self conscious. Although the effects of aging are inescapable, there are things we can do to actually slow down aging. A specific diet rich in antioxidants and daily exercise are the best ways to keep ward off disease and illness and maintain a healthy body and mind.
There’s been a lot of buzz about Cindy Crawford’s beauty secret – a line of skin products called “Meaningful Beauty”. As the story goes, French (via Algiers) cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sebagh discovered the secret ingredient in a melon grown in southern France. Reportedly, an average melon will spoil much quicker than the lucky melon from Southern France. Why? This rare melon contains the antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). This doctor’s observations led to his collaboration with former super-model Cindy Crawford and the incorporation of this ingredient in Cindy’s “meaningful beauty” line.
Website photos comparing Cindy at age 28 to age 43 certainly suggest that she has “spoiled” very little, if at all, in 15 years, although it’s not clear how long she’s been using this product line over those 15 years.
Meaningful creams aside, the agelessness in her photos resonate with me. My goal with every patient is to capture the essence of youthfulness and make time stand still. As I accomplish that goal, patients hold onto their original looks. No need for alteration, just preservation of what’s natural, even after 15 years, or more. Incredibly, this can be accomplished with the artistic and strategic use of fillers and injectibles such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and DysportTM. Of course, the patient needs to make lifestyle choices – such as stabilizing weight, exercising, avoiding exposure to sun and yes, maybe even the use of an antioxidant or two – that promote healthy skin.
I’m not sure that Cindy Crawford’s outstanding preservation has resulted from her use creams, even those that contain the powerful antioxidant SOD. It is true that antioxidants – which are abundantly present in nature – are a very important defense against the destruction and aging of cells that occurs from exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun. However, as we age we lose antioxidants and our skin is more vulnerable to the damaging rays so it makes sense to use them in our skin products.
In this story, the SOD is derived from a plant source, i.e., a melon. I’m not sure that the plant antioxidant is going to work as intended in a human, but it’s certainly worth a try. As for Cindy, I have a hunch the SOD had another ally to keep her youthful looks: genetics!
