Introducing Ultherapy

Rivela Plastic Surgery is now pleased to offer the latest in  Ultherapy®, the only non-surgical, non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to lift skin.  Ultherapy uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin by stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.

With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up from the inside- out for a natural, noticeable results unfolding over the course of 2 to 6 months,and lasting on average of two years.  While ultrasound does not replace the results of surgery Dr Rivela provides, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting non-surgical alternative. Knowledge is a beautiful thing.  For more information on this or other procedures, call 281.681.3905.


Rivela Plastic Surgery has been pleased to be the first to provide the newly released Voluma. Instead of just treating signs of aging around the mouth, Voluma, add volume for the mid-face, correcting the problem and not the symptom; for a more natural looking results lasting two years.

See your new body in 3D - Sculpt My DreamVectra 3D

Breast surgery is individualized. In order to better illustrate potential outcomes that may be achieved, Dr. Rivela offers this highly advanced 3D breast imaging and simulation technology to his patients. Although there is no single method or simulation that is 100% accurate, the VECTRA® Breast Imaging system gives you an amazing 3D visual image range of outcomes that show you a proportional range for your breast and body, provides a realistic expectation of the appearance of your breasts, is a great educational tool, and helps dramatically with the implant selection process. It is far more accurate than looking at other patients' before and after photos. You can visualize your own Before/After surgery. It is also more accurate than placing an implant in you bra, although you are free to do this during your consultation. You are able to visualize and experience your own result in 3D pre-operatively.

Introducing Cellulaze and Smartlipo

Finally, there’s a longer-lasting, one-time treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s a unique laser treatment called Cellulaze that attacks the very structure of cellulite. Cellulite isn’t a fat problem; it’s a structural problem below the skin. Only Cellulaze attacks the brittle structure beneath the skin that is the real cause of cellulite’s dimpling. 

Do you have love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags, or jowls that don't respond to exercise and diet? They all improve dramatically using Smartlipo TriPlex, with minimal downtime and less pain than traditional liposuction alone. Because Smartlipo TriPlex actually tightens tissue, you don't have to worry about dimpling and sagging afterwards.
