Dr Lundeby speaks about Shape!

Dr. John Lundeby is the Owner and Medical Director of Shape Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa. He is Triple Board Certified in Cosmetic Surgery, Facial Cosmetic Surgery and in Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. John Lundeby decided to become a doctor at an early age. Growing up in a small town, he was inspired by the local doctor. That old fashioned rural doctor did it all, performed surgeries, delivered babies, treated sick children and set broken bones. “He was a big influence on me,” states Dr. Lundeby. “He always took excellent care of his patients. I chose to become a surgeon because I’ve always been interested in mechanical things and am good with my hands. Cosmetic surgery allows me to work directly with my patients, help them achieve their aesthetic goals, and really take care of them the right way—without having to fight insurance companies or medical bureaucracy telling me my patients don’t need what I consider necessary care.”

Practicing medicine the old fashioned way—truly taking care of patients; talking to them in language they can understand rather than medical jargon; really listening to them to understand their needs—that’s the way Dr. John Lundeby manages his office. Dr. Lundeby believes in doing things the right way, so he focuses exclusively on cosmetic surgery and foregoes performing other types of surgeries. He also believes in providing old fashioned service to his patients. While he doesn’t make house calls, he does offer a fully AAAHC accredited in-office surgical suite, relieving patients of the hassle and added cost of a hospital or surgical center visit.

Shape Cosmetic Surgery offers a full spectrum of cosmetic surgery procedures while the MedSpa provides a full menu of non-surgical, aesthetic treatments. Cosmetic surgical procedures for the face include: face lifts; brow lifts; chin implants; lip implants; lip lifts; eyelid surgery, otoplasty (ear surgery) and for fat reduction under the chin (double chin), Dr. Lundeby offers CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting is a new, non-invasive liposuction alternative procedure to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. CoolSculpting freezes the fat without surgery. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so patients look great from every angle. “We currently have five CoolSculpting machines,” says Dr. Lundeby. “We plan to add one more next year. The results of our CoolSculpting are amazing. It produces results nearly as good as liposuction without the need for anesthesia or downtime.”

Other procedures available at Shape include breast augmentation; breast augmentation with lift, breast lift; breast revision; and breast reduction. In addition, Shape offers many body transforming surgeries such as: Mommy Makeovers, tummy tuck, Brazilian Butt Lift, arm lifts, body lifts, thigh lifts, liposuction, and surgical vaginal rejuvenation or labiaplasty. Other procedures include fat transfer plastic surgery to enhance facial and body contours; Cellulaze, a minimally invasive laser-assisted procedure that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin which cause cellulite. Cellulaze is clinically proven to increase the skin’s natural thickness for a smoother, healthier look that lasts.

The MedSpa offers facials & waxing; facial peels; fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing; micro-dermabrasion; laser hair removal; IPA laser treatment for skin rejuvenation; laser vein treatment; and Genesis™ Photo rejuvenation for reduction of acne, redness and pore size. Botox® Cosmetic as well as Juvéderm® XC dermal filler are available. Liquid Facelift is also offered for a non-surgical procedure which subtly restores natural facial contours and volume erasing years from a patient’s face. This procedure may also be used to complement a surgical facelift to restore natural 3-dimensional contours to the face.

Additional non-surgical services include Thermi™ radio frequency (RF) treatments. Shape is pleased to offer ThermiTight®, ThermiSmooth® and ThermiVa® treatments. ThermiTight is a minimally invasive treatment which uses RF to generate gentle heat applied sub-dermally to tighten skin. ThermiTight is used to treat skin laxity and sculpt the body. ThermiSmooth delivers precise, gentle heat to the surface of the skin to non-invasively smooth skin and stimulate new collagen production. Patients often say it feels like a warm massage. Patients will see smoother, thicker skin following treatment.

ThermiVa is only for the ladies, but their partners will be pleased, as well. ThermiVa tightens vaginal tissue and strengthens the structural support. It is an ideal treatment modality for many of the problems plaguing premenopausal and menopausal women such as urinary incontinence, painful intercourse, vulvovaginal laxity, labial appearance, and loss of vaginal lubrication and sensation. ThermiVa provides a non-hormonal treatment modality with excellent results which are immediately apparent, with little risk, no pain, and no recovery downtime. The treatment is non-surgical and is performed in office eliminating the need to go to a surgery center or hospital. While significant benefits are experienced after a single treatment, a series of three treatments over the course of three months may be necessary to achieve optimum results.

“I’m very impressed with the results of ThermiVa treatment,” states Dr. Lundeby. “Mild urinary stress incontinence was corrected after a single treatment. The patient also had improved vaginal tightness and sensation. This provides us with an excellent non-surgical option for patients seeking vaginal rejuvenation.”

There is a stigma with some who feel cosmetic procedures are selfish or vain. Dr. Lundeby explains, “Having a cosmetic procedure done is about investing in yourself and your appearance. It is nothing to feel guilty about. Improving their appearance makes a person feel better about themselves and increases their self-confidence. It improves their quality of life.”
