Scars sometimes act as a deterrent for cosmetic surgery. People fear their skin will be left with raised lines or potted marks. This is completely understandable. The reason people get cosmetic surgery is to improve their appearance. Having noticeable scars left behind by the procedure defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?
If scars have kept you from improving your looks with one or more cosmetic techniques, there are now procedures that can help you look your best without noticeable scars.

Why Are Scarless Plastic Surgery Results Important?
Enhancing your appearance without dealing with noticeable scars is one of the best ways to show love to yourself. You can regain your youthful shape and self-esteem by using one or more treatments like facelift, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck.
How Does Scarless Plastic Surgery Work?
In the world of cosmetic surgery, there are different types of scars. Some procedures leave an inevitable scar, such as a tummy tuck. Removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal area causes trauma to the area, and a scar is the natural mending of that tissue as the surgical wound heals.
When we use the term “scarless,” unfortunately, we don’t mean the area will have zero scarring. Technology does not yet exist where we can cause trauma to the skin and not have it produce some scar.
That being said, scarless techniques are minimally invasive, meaning the scars they cause are tiny. Once healed, the idea is to produce a scar that is hardly noticeable at all.
Another element is at play when you choose the area’s best cosmetic surgeon. Cosmetic surgeons are specially trained to reduce the appearance of scars. While the surgeon performs the procedure, any incisions are within natural skin folds. This makes them nearly invisible, hence the term “scarless” to describe these amazing aesthetic enhancements.
What Types of Scarless Plastic Surgery Are Available?
Cosmetic surgery clinics today offer a wide range of procedures that reduce the appearance of scars. It will leave the area looking more beautiful and natural.
A scarless facelift, or a vertical facelift, helps avoid the too-tight or pulled-back look that accompanies more traditional facelift techniques. You can show your face confidently without noticeable scarring behind the ears because the incisions are hidden and virtually invisible.
During the vertical facelift procedure, the skin of the face is separated from the underlying tissue. The underlying muscles are then elevated by vertically repositioning the facial muscles to achieve a more youthful look.
The benefits of having a facelift without scars extend to the neck and jaw, giving your neck improved contours and your jaw greater definition. These enhancements add symmetry and turn back the clock on your appearance, all without unsightly scars.
The scarless arm lift solves the problem of saggy, flappy upper arms. Crude nicknames are sometimes given to these problem areas, such as bats or bingo wings. The idea is that the saggy skin flaps like a bat or wave whenever the person raises their hand to call “Bingo!” during the game of the same name.
The biggest issue women have with saggy upper arms is that the area is resistant to diet and exercise. No matter how hard you work, your upper arms will never return to the tone you may have enjoyed in your youth.
The traditional arm lift leaves an inevitable scar, like the tummy tuck. The procedure involves an extended incision that moves from the armpit to the elbow. The scar can be obvious with the regular arm lift, which is sometimes a deterrent for people looking to reduce upper arms sag.
The scarless arm lift offers an upper arm reduction without noticeable scars.
Technological advancements in radiofrequency-assisted skin tightening allow controlled heat to the upper arm area. Controlled thermal fields allow for the coagulation of subcutaneous fat. The high-energy beam also heats the fibrous septa (connective tissue) and papillary dermis (inner skin layers), which causes the skin and tissue to retract. The effect is similar to how shrink-wrapping works, except it occurs on the skin of your upper arms.
The procedure offers instant and noticeable skin tightening with continued contraction over twelve months, without scars and with minimal downtime.
A traditional breast lift (mastopexy) is a cosmetic surgery aimed at rejuvenating breasts that have become droopy or saggy due to changes caused by age, genetics, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
The surgeon positions the breasts higher on the chest during a trad breast lift. The surgery may also involve rejuvenating, resizing, and repositioning the areolas.
Unfortunately, the traditional breast lift can produce scarring. The incision during the surgery starts at your nipple and extends to the undersides of each breast. This can sometimes produce a red and raised scar, but the scarring should heal and become more invisible with time.
A scarless breast lift produces no visible scars and will make your breast tissue firmer and more youthful.
The no-scar breast lift uses a small cannula, a thin rod inserted through tiny incisions. The cannula produces a current under the skin’s surface, producing a thermal field condensing the breast tissue.
The electrode-powered cannula also heats the breast’s fat cells and papillary dermis, which further adds tightness and suppleness to the treatment area.
Much like saggy skin on the upper arms, the upper thigh area tends to be resistant to healthy eating and aerobic exercise. The skin may appear saggy, dimpled, and thicker than you would prefer.
A traditional thigh lift can treat the area, providing improved contours and tighter skin. However, there is typically a scar left behind. The cosmetic surgeon will attempt to hide scarring in the crease between the front of your upper thigh and the pubic area.
The scarless thigh lift is a minimally invasive procedure that smooths and tones the thigh area. The procedure is ideal for skin laxity issues, otherwise crudely referred to as “thunder thighs.”
A small incision is made on the upper thighs. The incision is less than a centimeter in length and acts as an entry point for a tumescent solution, which is injected under the skin to numb the treatment area.
Next, the Renuvion handheld device is inserted into the opening, releasing an energy beam composed of helium gas and radiofrequency energy. These sources make plasma energy, which heats and cools the treatment tissue. The treatment affects skin collagen, causing it to constrict.
While the treatment produces noticeable tightness in the upper thigh area, skin elasticity, and laxity will dramatically improve over time. The changes continue to take effect six to nine months following the scarless thigh lift procedure.
The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. The surgery is aimed at the removal of excess skin and the tightening of lax tissue on and around the abdominal area. The abdominal muscles are also tightened and strengthened, contributing to a flatter belly and enhanced abdominal curves.
The traditional tummy tuck requires a horizontal incision just above your pubic area. While the scar tends to shrink and disappear over time, the scarring can be noticeable following the traditional tummy tuck procedure.
Cosmetic surgeons are trained to place the abdominal incisions as low as possible, making any scarring that develops easier to hide with a bathing suit or underwear.
A scarless tummy tuck doesn’t require a strategic bikini or high-waisted underwear because the scars that occur are nearly invisible.

Disclaimer: The FDA has not approved using Renuvion for cosmetic use. The FDA has approved Renuvion for coagulation of tissue only. The specific advanced use of this new technology for skin tightening remains investigational. The off-label use of Renuvion is only suitable for specific groups of patients with minimal skin laxity. Many devices initially have general use approval, and, with time, the expanded indications are approved to popularize usage. If you are a suitable candidate for Renuvion, Dr. Moein will discuss this information to ensure your understanding and comprehension before opting for the Renuvion procedure.
