The Best Outcomes with the Best Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Steven J. Varkony is possibly the finest plastic surgeon in the highly competitive Los Angeles San Fernando Valley area. He is an acknowledged innovator in plastic surgery who has led the way in multiple areas, including keeping visible scarring after plastic surgery to an absolute minimum.

Getting to that point required many years of intensive study and training for Dr. Varkony. Any doctor can call himself or herself a cosmetic surgeon – which is not the same thing as a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery specialization requires an additional two years of intensive and rigorous training in a field that demands surgical skill, a large amount of medical knowledge, good surgical judgment, and a strong aesthetic sense to give plastic surgery patients the cosmetic results they need to live their best lives.

The next step for new plastic surgeons is obtaining their board certification in plastic surgery, which involves a rigorous examination process in which a doctor is tested in their knowledge and judgment. Only board-certified plastic surgeons can join the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, of which Dr. Varkony is a member. Experts agree that board certification is key to ensuring that plastic surgery with a specific doctor is both safe and likely to achieve the hoped-for outcomes. It is in your best interest to only consider a board-certified plastic surgeon of Dr. Varkony’s quality to ensure safety and satisfying outcomes.

Breast Augmentation

Increase your breast size and improve your shape with a plastic surgery that has been refined and improved steadily over the years and remains among the most popular plastic surgeries.* Breast augmentation (aka breast enlargement) typically employs “gummy bear” cohesive silicone gel breast implants (saline implants are also available), takes less than an hour, and can be combined with a breast lift, if desired. Patients concerned about scarring will be happy to know that, as one of the most innovative of plastic surgeons, Dr. Varkony performs his signature hidden scar breast enlargement, concealing the incision in an armpit crease for a greatly improved outcome.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) uses unwanted fat obtained via liposuction to sculpt a more pleasing and youthful butt. For dramatically improved outcomes, Dr. Varkony employs VASER ultrasound liposuction. When used at a low setting, the system allows the doctor to gently break attachments between fat cells, keeping them alive and viable for use in a plastic surgery. Unlike some other plastic surgeons, Dr. Varkony employs the VASER device’s pump to evenly and thoroughly inject the fat back into the patient’s buttocks at carefully selected locations, resulting in truly beautiful outcomes!

VASER technology allows a highly-skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Varkony to reveal muscles in extraordinary detail which includes revealing previously hidden “six pack” abdominal muscles. Dr. Varkony also offers 360 liposculpting with VASER for comprehensive body contouring that can maximize the beauty of a physique in spectacular fashion and result in a gorgeous, hourglass shape.

Mommy Makeover

Reversing many of the unwanted after-effects of pregnancy and lactation is possible with a mommy makeover, a set of plastic surgeries that includes a tummy tuck, breast procedures, VASER ultrasound liposculpting, and more. Having these plastic surgery procedures together reduces overall recovery time and costs compared to having them separately. Even more important, allowing a skilled plastic surgeon to harmonize the procedures by performing them together can help lead to the best possible outcomes. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven J. Varkony is here to help moms feel and look their absolute best.

Dr. Varkony and the Art of the Hidden Scar

Plastic surgery can work wonders. Even so, any procedure involving an incision will result in some amount of scarring; therefore, a good plastic surgeon will do everything possible to make those inevitable scars as inconspicuous as possible. As the innovator behind the “hidden scar arm lift” (transverse brachioplasty), Dr. Varkony has been at the forefront of minimizing and concealing unattractive scars. Whatever the procedure, this leading plastic surgeon is known for his ability to make incisions that can be hidden inside creases and other places where they are less likely to be noticed.
