As advocates of minimally invasive procedures, we are proud to announce the addition of the Phoenix 15 CO2 Laser. Read on to discover the benefits.

Skin Resurfacing

What it does:

CO2 laser is the latest technology for skin resurfacing. It’s designed to help remove wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and cheeks. It’s an excellent option for those who want to diminish the look if fine lines and surface wrinkles. The CO2 laser is also capable of reducing the appearance of sun spots and facial scars in 4 – 6 weeks.

The treatment:

The laser works by gently vaporizing the outer layer of sun-damaged or acne scarring to reveal smooth, fresh new skin underneath. In a similar manner, the laser works to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure gives your physician precise control over the application, ensuring you get the best results. Recovery time lasts about two weeks and works best for lighter skin tones.

Hand Rejuvenation

What it does:

Say goodbye to poor skin texture, color, age, and dark spots. There are now a variety of treatments available to achieve smooth, younger looking skin. Depending on your desired results, you may need only one or a combination of treatments. Three consecutive visits provide the best results.

The treatment:

Through a combination of chemical peels, Sclerotherapy, Microdermabrasion, tissue tightening and more, your physician can provide the best combination to suit your needs. Laser treatments rapidly reduce the signs of aging with very little down time. Fat transfer provides a safe and effective way to restore volume and create a more youthful appearance. Recovery will depend on the exact procedures performed; however, most have very little downtime and few side effects.

Feminine Rejuvenation

What it does:

Phoenix 15 CO2 Laser treatments are safe, minimally invasive procedures that provide tightening, strengthening, and smoothing. Ideal for women who have given birth, suffer from urge incontinence, or who have had breast cancer and can’t be on hormones. It can also help with unwanted secretions, increase blood flow, and sensitivity to help empower women.

The treatment:

The procedure is a minimally invasive and designed to stimulate and promote the production of collagen. New skin cells will be produced in the underlying layer of tissue bringing about a smoother, tighter, and healthier skin. Before treatment, a pelvic exam should be performed, and the patient must have had a routine Pap Smear within the last six months. Achieving the best results happens with three treatments spread out over three months. The patient can return home the same day. Rest and abstaining from sex for about a week is needed.

Cosmetic Surgery After Extreme Weight Loss

Cosmetic Surgery After Extreme Weight Loss

Dramatic weight loss should be a rewarding experience. The long journey of hard work through diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery can be full of emotional highs and lows. The end goal is to feel healthy, happy, and full of vitality. So, if you have undergone a body transformation but are left with sagging skin, there are solutions to help tone and define the figure you worked so hard to achieve. Here is everything you need to know about plastic surgery after weight loss.

When to Consider Weight Loss Surgery

Sometimes, even though the goal weight has been reached, there are still areas of the body that need help, which diet and exercise can’t fix. Weight loss surgery is ideal for anyone who has excess skin on the stomach, arms, neck, and breast. There are various procedures available to help tighten and tone your body. A consultation with your doctor can help you determine the right treatment plan for you. 

Am I the Right Candidate?

Diet and exercise need to be a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. Before you go under the knife, we recommend at least 6-12 months of stable eating and body maintenance before considering surgery. To get the most out of your procedure, you want to make sure your body weight has plateaued, and you don’t plan to lose or gain any more weight. This is important because sometimes problem areas can shift during the weight loss process. But, if you are maintaining stability, then you and your doctor can address your concerns to give you the best possible results.

Procedures to Consider

1. Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin from the waist, and in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles. A tummy tuck is great for smoothing and firming your abdominal profile. During your procedure, an incision is made from hip to hip. The entire abdominal wall lifts, and the underlying muscles tightened. The skin is then pulled down and re-draped to produce a flatter belly and more defined waist.

2.  Neck Lift

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the jawline and neck. The neck lift begins with a small incision under the chin and the ear. Your doctor will then manipulate your muscles to create a tighter contour. Once this is achieved, excess skin is removed and the skin is re-draped. It’s important to note, neck lift patients are given a supportive garment to wear around the jaw for at least a week after surgery to keep the new contours in place.

3. Breast lift

If you have experienced loss of volume in the upper portion of your breasts due to weight loss, you might consider a breast lift, also known as mastopexy. The procedure is performed by making an incision in the breast to tighten the skin and raise the height of the nipple. This restores the breast to a more youthful and perky position. The surgical technique hides scarring around the nipple and on the bottom of the chest. The entire procedure lasts about two or three hours.

4. Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses suction to remove excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle. This technique works well on stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to a strict diet or targeted exercise. This is a great option to consider if you want to remove stubborn body fat and create a slimmer profile.

4 Reasons to Consider a Mommy Makeover

4 Reasons to Consider a Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy and child rearing can be one of the life’s most rewarding journeys. But over time, the constant demand of caring for a little human eventually takes its toll on a mother’s body. If you are noticing that even with diet and exercise, you are unable to shake the baby weight, you may be ready for a Mommy Makeover.

1. Slim Down the Tummy, Hips, and Thighs

Certain areas of the body are notoriously difficult to change, even when you do everything right. For those desiring to slim down the tummy, hips, and thighs, there are liposuction treatments available that will give you back your pre-pregnancy body. You can choose between traditional liposuction or SlimLipo. Slimlipo is a laser treatment that melts away fat. Both options work wonders and produce amazing results.

A tummy tuck will also dramatically improve your stomach’s appearance. This procedure works by eliminating excess fat, skin, and tissue after pregnancy. It can also safely repair any abdominal separation. Tummy tucks are a great option that provides immediate results.

2. Get a Perky Chest

If breastfeeding has created noticeably thin and saggy breasts, a breast lift can help. Breast lifts work by repairing and reshaping your breasts. Depending on the amount repair required, an incision around the areola or down the chest allows for skin to tighten and the nipple to raise. This procedure will restore your breast to a perkier, more youthful position, with minimal scarring.

For a more dramatic look, a breast augmentation is a great treatment to give fullness and lift to the chest. Both options are great at restoring any lost volume.

3. Reduce Fine Lines

Late nights can leave you with noticeable lines around the face and eyes. There are many facials, injections, and skin-resurfacing treatments that will help you look and feel your best in no time. You can also eliminate unwanted spider veins with laser treatments. The options are endless, and our fantastic staff will work with you to help you determine the best treatment plan, so you feel like your old self again.

4. Only Do What is Best for You

The best thing about The Mommy Makeover is it isn’t a particular product, but a customizable package of services to help address your specific problem areas. The overall goal is to help you look and feel your absolute best. Depending on what areas you would like to address, we will guide you on what combinations work best for you.

My Botox Experience – Abigail

We don’t believe that surgery is always required to achieve the look you want. That’s why Marvel Cosmetic Surgery offers a wide variety of non-surgical procedures to help you look and feel your best. In fact, our most popular request is a non-surgical treatment, Botox. Many people request Botox for its ability to smooth wrinkles and fight the first signs of aging. Are you considering Botox?

Read below to hear from one of our clients about her experience with Botox at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery. Results are not guaranteed and vary from person to person.

Tell us about your experience with Dr. Marvel and Marvel Cosmetic Surgery.

I’ve been going to Marvel Cosmetic for over 5 years! They are incredibly honest and professional, but I think it’s their honesty that keeps me coming back. I work a lot with Tammy and Donna who are always available to give me the best guidance for what I need. I never feel pressured to take on more than what I originally signed up for. In fact, they are honest about telling me things that I don’t need. I wasn’t in the door to be kicked out the door. It appeared that they wanted to spend time with to help me find solutions to for my skin

Would you recommend Dr. Marvel to others?

Yes! I am very open about discussing my procedures with friends and I am always encouraging them to give Dr. Marvel as his team a try! They are the most welcoming group of individuals and they always remember my name. Like I mentioned previously, they are incredible when it comes to hearing me out. They take into consideration what it is I want and try to recommend a process that will give me the results I want. 

I also believe they have a very attractive location. It may sound a bit random to mention, but when you are having procedures done you want it to look clean and attractive. They have a very aesthetically pleasing building so you know you are walking into a quality practice.

Why did you decide to undergo Botox and Filler?

I became a customer on a whim and won my first trip to Marvel Cosmetic at a silent auction. I’m really open minded about treatments and I was looking for something to improve the look of my skin. I discussed my needs with the staff and they were great about informing me of my options. Because I needed less movement in my face, mostly in my eyes and forehead, they recommended Botox and Dysport. I was adamant that I wanted to look as natural as possible and they were incredible! I never leave feeling as if I’ve had work done. We’ve discussed the possibility of filler maybe in my cheeks, but right now they have told me I just don’t need it. I really appreciate that type of honesty.

How has your life changed since Botox?

When it comes to Botox, it’s a marathon not a sprint. My short-term goal is to clean up small lines that are appearing on my face. Reducing wrinkles is a long-term goal that will take time – which I am willing to be patient for! I am hoping that I will eventually be able to spread out the visits and achieve clearer looking skin. I am really pleased with the results I have achieved so far. I couldn’t be happier with how my treatment plan has worked out.

Our combination of technical skill and attention to detail helps you leave with healthy, natural looking results. If you are ready to see what Botox can do for you contact us or call 615-329-3900 to book your first appointment today!

Choosing the Right Medical Peel

Choosing the Right Medical Peel

There are aisles upon aisles of serums, ointments, and lotions which all declare they can reduce the signs of aging. However, none will work as well as a medical peel. Medical peels are an excellent way to restore youth, vibrancy and a radiant glow to your skin. But with so many varieties available, it can be difficult to choose which peel is best for you. If you are considering a medical peel to improve the look of your skin, read our guide on how to choose the best medical peel for you.

Vitamin C Peel

Vitamin C is one of the best-known defenses against free radicals. This peel is a great option for anyone who suffers from acne because it deeply cleanses the pores and provides an anti-bacterial action to prevent acne from reappearing. The acid found in Vitamin C also works as a bleaching agent, which can help restore imbalanced skin tone and help fade blemishes.

VI Peel

The VI Peel® contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel works at the cellular level to tackle skin problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, and shrinking enlarged pores. With the help of many acids and vitamins, it’s extremely efficient at reducing hyperpigmentation and acne. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation, and little downtime.

Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel uses a combination of AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids), along with Retinol, to give a more corrective exfoliation for the skin. Our most popular facial treatment and ideal for melasma, sun damage, acne, post hyper-inflammatory acne, fine lines and all-over tone and texture of skin. For best results, you should consider a series of three visits.

Illuminize Peel

Known as the “Liquid Microdermabrasion,” this light peel contains Phytic, Mandelic, Malic, and Salicylic Acids, along with Resorcinol, to reveal a healthier, glowing look to the skin. Because it is a lighter treatment, it works well for teens or those who have never had a medical peel.

Zesty Orange Peel

This enzyme peel is full of Vitamin C and it also contains Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid. Perfect for blemish-prone, sensitive skin. Because it has similar benefits to the Vitamin C Peel, it reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. You can also use it as a preventative for future breakouts.

Phyto-Pumpkin Peel

This enzyme peel helps glycolic-sensitive skin. It contains Vitamin A and Beta Carotene, ideal for adding a healthy glow to the skin. Because of the gentle exfoliation, this peel works on all skin types, especially those prone to rosacea.

Mango Peel

An enzyme peel with Lactic Acid, mango, and grapefruit, along with grape seed extracts to help with dryness. Strong enough to do the job without much of the irritation, it’s a great pre-wedding treatment!

Glycolic Peels

Our glycolic peels vary in strength. They help treat hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun damage, clogged pores and some forms of acne. This peel is an option for someone who lacks the ‘down time’ required for most peeling. There are noticeable improvements in the skin’s tone and texture from even a single treatment.

Salicylic Peel

The Salicylic Peel helps decrease oil production in the skin. This is the perfect treatment for acne and blackheads because it works deep in the pores. It’s gentle enough for use with other peels to help problem areas like T-zones and combination skin types.

5 Ways to Prevent Aging & Protect the Skin

5 Ways to Prevent Aging & Protect the Skin

They say youth is wasted on the young and that couldn’t ring truer than when wrinkles begin to appear. The unfortunate part of aging is that our skin begins to lose elasticity, which causes fine lines and sagging around the eyes, mouth, and neck. Though this process is inevitable, there are ways you can slow it down and protect your skin from damage. Read on for a list of ways to prevent aging!

It’s Always Sunny Somewhere

One big issue is that most individuals do not protect their skin from harmful UVA rays. Don’t be fooled by a gray sky. Just because it’s cloudy, doesn’t mean the rays can’t reach your skin. If that’s not enough to make you slather up, consider this; UVA rays have the ability to pass through windows. This means you aren’t safe just because you’re indoors. If there is a window, there are UVA rays! It’s always a good idea to apply sunscreen to your face as part of your morning routine.

Wash Your Face

We’ve been told our entire lives to wash our face before bed. If you want to prevent unnecessary premature aging, you should be following this advice every night. Throughout the day, makeup, lotions, products, and pollutants collect on our face. If we don’t wash them off before bed, we sleep in the day’s dirt and grime. Bacteria is now cloging our pores while we sleep, inhibiting the cycle of regrowth needed for a healthy complexion. Before your head hits the pillow, cleanse, tone, and apply anti-aging serums for your skin to reach its maximum potential.

Drink Plenty of Water

Yes, we actually mean water, not coffee, tea, fruit juices, or coke. Not all liquids are created equal, and water is the holy grail for anti-aging. Your cells need water for a host of reasons. Water is the best and purest way to detoxify the body because it eliminates harmful substances that accelerate the aging process from your skin. Water also carries vital nutrients to your cells, which allows them to function properly and repair damage. All of which you’ll need for a healthy youthful glow.

You Are What You Eat

Diet is crucial for optimal health but also plays a huge role in the aging process. Feed your body foods rich in antioxidants. This means you are getting a good source of fiber, low saturated fats, and all the vitamins your skin needs. Some of the best foods to eat are fruit, dark leafy greens, and foods high in healthy fats (think avocados, nuts, and seeds).

Sleep Shows

When our bodies are tired and worn, it shows on the face and in our eyes. Taking time to get the sleep we need means we are giving our cells time to regenerate and stay healthy. Sleep also helps lower stress and anxiety, two factors which can accelerate aging. Unwinding before bed is challenging for some, so we recommend ditching the phone and implementing a strict bedtime routine. This way your brain knows that rest is on its way.

If you want to see what non-surgical, anti-aging, treatments we provide at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, contact us or call 615-329-3900 . Our expert team members will help you decide what options are right for you by booking you a consultation. Don’t wait and get that skin you’ve been dreaming off today!

The Best Foods to Eat After Cosmetic Surgery

What to eat after cosmetic surgeryCosmetic surgery procedures are undoubtedly hard on the body. Most come with recovery periods that seem long and intensive but are crucial for the body’s healing process. We would never actively encourage anyone to try to speed up the recovery process, but there are ways you can nurture your body to ensure it has everything it needs to heal its best.

How many times have you heard, you are what you eat? In the realm of healing, this saying couldn’t be more true as food is essential in the recovery process! In honor of National Nutrition month, we’ve listed some of the best foods you can eat post operation.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps promote collagen regeneration which is crucial post-op. It also helps improve the immune system function, so you can recover without the worry of getting sick. Vitamin C is water soluble and is easily expelled from the body which means two things. In order to maintain healthy levels, you will need to have a continuous supply and you won’t be able to overdose. Your body will always be able to get rid of what it doesn’t need.


Daily water consumption is important but when you are recovering from surgery it’s even more vital. Water detoxifies the body by helping to flush out impurities. It can also help stabilize the metabolism and reduce joint pain.


A common problem after surgery is constipation. To help ease this issue, increase your fiber intake by eating lots of fruits and vegetables. You’ll also want to avoid processed foods, dairy products, and sweets. These foods are notorious when it comes to increasing the risk of constipation.


You can help your muscles bounce back by increasing your protein intake. Try to make your protein choices lean so your body doesn’t have to work extra hard to burn unnecessary fats.

There are also some things you can do before undergoing the knife to help your post-op recovery. Before surgery, it’s always advisable to stop taking aspirin, Vitamin E, and fish oil. This is especially important if you are a heavy bruiser. If you bleed or bruise easily, there are some great homeopathic options that can help. Arnica Montana is one we not only suggest, but sell here in the office. If that is not available, you can also try bromelain, a natural substance found in pineapples (we recommend taking the supplement for a higher concentrated dose). Regardless of which supplement you choose, they need to be administered pre-and post-procedure to help with any swelling.

Striving to eat healthily is a great way for the body to reduce toxins, increase vitality, and manage a healthy weight. But when your body undergoes a trauma like surgery, you need to take extra special care of what you put inside you in order to help with recovery time.

What to Look for When Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

Make Sure the Surgeon is Board-Certified

This seems like it would be a no-brainer, but did you know any doctor in the country can legally perform any surgery? That means a psychiatrist could do a breast augmentation if they wanted. When a doctor is board-certified, you know that he is experienced in that particular field. In order to comply and become certified, doctors must complete three to five years of training in general surgery and a minimum of two to three years of training in plastic surgery—in addition to written and oral tests. Plus, board-certified surgeons must undergo continued education. This means you know your doctor will be up-to-date on all the advancements in current procedures and be able to advise you expertly.

You can find a list of certified surgeon by clicking here.

Operating Facility

Once you have confirmed that your doctor is board-certified, ask about their operating facilities. Your health and safety revolve around the anesthetist and quality of the operating room. You’ll want to ask your surgeon where they perform surgery and about the facility’s accreditation. Accredited operating rooms is having a life support system, in the off chance that something goes wrong. Look for AAAASF, AAAHC or JCAHO operating facility certification.

To learn more about the anesthetist’s qualifications, look for either a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) or a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist administering your anesthesia.

Experience in the Procedure You Want

Each cosmetic procedure requires a different skill set. As you can imagine, performing a facelift is completely different than preforming a breast augmentation or reduction. When researching a doctor, make sure he or she has experience in the surgery you are looking for. Look at before and after photos and reviews of their practice.

Similar Aesthetics

Before and after photos are a great way to ensure your surgeon shares your aesthetic. These results will last the rest of your life, so you want to be sure you are getting something you are comfortable with. Take time to look through images of previous clients to be confident the results will match what you are looking for. For better comparison, look for others who have similar face, body, and age as you.

Personal Connection

You will spend a prolonged amount of time with your doctor and their team before, during, and after surgery. Trust is essential and your doctor should make you feel comfortable in their care. Having a great personal connection with your doctor helps. You should feel confident asking questions or voicing any concerns you may have. Their responses should make you feel comfortable and secure with the decision you are making.

How to Tackle Stubborn Belly Fat

Liposuction Nashville TN

They’re referred to as love handles but you may know it as stubborn belly fat. However, most people don’t love those extra inches padding their abdomen. For many people, this area is their biggest complaint and the most challenging place to lose weight. Even active people, who don’t indulge in extra calories and maintain a healthy body weight, still find it extremely hard to shed those stubborn inches.

If you are frustrated by your midsection, don’t throw in the towel just yet. Instead, try these tips to tackle stubborn belly fat.

Say No to Added Sugars

The American Heart Association recommends no more than six tablespoons of added sugar each day. That’s roughly 100 calories of sugar. When you add more sugar to your diet, you add more stress on your liver. This extra stress means your body stops processing food, hormones, and cortisol (stress hormones) properly. When this happens, excess fat begins to be stored around your abdomen. Sugar is found in almost everything, but it’s especially high in processed foods. So, next time you’re at the grocery store, be sure to read the label and check for sugar content.

Eat Healthy Fats

When we indulge too much in saturated fats, our body turns it into visceral fat that pads our midsection. Saturated fats are found in milk, dairy, and fatty meat products. If you are serious about toning your stomach, you will need to limit your saturated fat intake. Instead, increase your intake of fats that are good for you such as, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats. These healthy fats are found in foods like avocados, fatty fish, nuts, seeds, and oils such as olive or canola.

Eat More Protein and Veggies

Eating lean protein is an excellent way to blast belly fat. Greek yogurt, lean meats, fish, and beans are fantastic sources of lean protein. Filling yourself up with more fruits and veggies instead of complex carbs also means you won’t be adding extra pounds around your middle. Aim to take in 25 grams of protein per meal to shed those inches.

High-intensity Cardio and Resistance Training

Melt stubborn inches and boost your metabolism by exercising smarter. Planks, sit-ups, and crunches on their own just won’t cut it. Recent studies show that individuals who participate in high-intensity interval training had smaller waistlines than those who only focused on cardio or strength training. Next time you’re at the gym, workout smarter by incorporating these exercises.


If you are at your ideal body weight but just can’t shed that stubborn fat, liposuction can work wonders. Liposuction targets specific areas on the body, contouring and sculpting those problems away. Because liposuction removes excess fat but it doesn’t tighten the skin, appropriate skin elasticity is beneficial to the recovery process. An ideal candidate will be at a healthy weight and have excellent skin elasticity.
