Turning Back the Hands of Time

Turning Back the Hands of Time

Dr. Ed O’Dell, Medical Director of Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center

What common theme runs through your first visits with new patients?

The first visit, we discuss what patients believe they need. We educate them about various procedures and explain which ones would work best for them. Sometimes, a patient will think they need one thing and really need another!

Once something women (and men) did in secret, now procedures to improve appearance are widely accepted – why is that?

There is much more awareness today. Cosmetic surgery is much more affordable and safer – it’s not just for movie stars anymore. Some patients don’t want anyone to know, but most are thrilled to show off their new look. These procedures can be life changing. I have patients come back and tell me how much better they feel – for example, after our Signature Lipo Sculpting, patients are able to get back into more form fitting clothes and renew that hour glass figure that was lost years ago. Cosmetic Laser procedures do not require general anesthesia, and there is much less down time than with traditional plastic surgery. We use small instruments that go underneath the skin, and in most cases the results are just as good and much safer with less blood loss.

One of the biggest problems we face as we age is fat loss in our face and hands. Today, we can harvest fat from problem areas and transfer it to these areas, giving patients back a youthful look and shape. This is one of our most popular procedures.

What do you do for fun and relaxation?

We have a beach house on the creek in Garden City. Here is where I find peace and fun! I love watching the sunset from our deck; it’s the most peaceful part of the day. I also love spending time with my family. My wife, Nancy, and I will have been married 37 years in April, and have five children and two grandchildren. Staying happily married is all about compromise – and a common faith.
