ROCEDURES THAT ENHANCE WELL- ness and beauty no longer require extensive anesthesia and extended recovery times. In fact, at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center and Lowcountry Beauty and Wellness Spa,


many of these procedures are minimally invasive or even non-invasive. “Today’s technology leads people down a different path than just a few years ago,” Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jack Hensel explained. “For example,

CoolSculpting and Venus Freeze can be great alternatives for those who do not want surgery. It can be done on your lunch break, and you can go back to work. You don’t have to wear a garment and there are no incisions. Tere’s no cutting at all.” He added that he can provide options for people who want to lose loose skin and wrinkles but aren’t ready to take the facelift route. Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center offers procedures such as the Madonna lift to improve your look around the eyes; Smartskin or ablative treatment for skin tightening and wrinkles; and SideLaze to treat lower face laxity or jowls. Tese procedures utilize a laser that often requires only local anesthesia. Dr. Hensel’s helpful staff leads the way when a person


inquires about a procedure. “Often the patient will call, we’ll discuss over the phone what he or she is looking for and we determine the best options,” explained Marketing Manager Michele Hensel. “We are very particular when considering whether a patient is a good candidate for a procedure. We want to make sure we are choosing the right procedures for the right patients in order to provide long-term satisfaction.” Once the initial questions are answered and the patient is qualified for a procedure, he or she visits Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center for a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Hensel and the patient coordinator. Dr. Hensel explained the importance of board


certification. To earn this distinction, a plastic surgeon must graduate from an accredited medical school, complete at least five years of surgical training and two years of plastic surgery residency training and pass comprehensive oral and written exams. Cosmetic surgeons, on the other hand, are in many cases doctors who take a weekend course to learn how to perform a specific procedure. Lowcountry residents obviously recognize Dr.


Hensel’s expertise. He was named the Best Plastic Surgeon in East Cooper by readers of Mount Pleasant Magazine the past two years and has earned the same honor from Charleston City Paper for six years. “We have the best of technology, and we like to bring what is on the West coast to the East coast,” said Dr. Hensel. “It is our job to make sure a procedure is the right procedure for you.”
