"I was looking for a cosmetic/plastic surgeon who had experience working with a high degree of vertical lines and loss of elasticity of the neck. My physician recommended Dr. George Kouris and I am so happy that I followed through. I recently had a neck and lower jawline lift. I’m in the process of healing and from what I can see, just in a short period of time, I am totally happy with the results. I can now hold my head up high with confidence and retain my self-esteem. Dr. Kouris’ demeanor put me at ease immediately from beginning to end. He had all the qualities I was looking for. Dr. Kouris is very knowledgeable, extremely capable, takes pride in his work, compassionate, caring, honest, warm, understanding, kind, a genius in his work of art, and most of all Dr. Kouris is GENUINE. If you’re thinking about having any form of cosmetic surgery Dr. Kouris is whom you want to see. You will find no other as qualified as he. Dr. Kouris is the ultimate best! Forever Grateful!"- M.M. / Healthgrades / Oct 15, 2020

"I will start by mentioning that Dr. Kouris is an excellent doctor all-around. He is compassionate, very knowledgeable, extremely polite, and has a wonderful team - Sheila and Suzy are the best! I have known Dr. Kouris since 2017. I had 3 procedures - Breast reduction, Tummy Tuck and brow lift. I am 54 years old looking like i am in my 40s. I love all 3 of my procedures but my brow lift is incredibly natural. No one realizes what I had done. I am receiving compliments about how young I look. Ultimately, I believe the doctor that makes you look younger and feel extremely confident in your own skin has a magic touch! I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the search of doing any plastic surgery. Give Dr. Kouris a shot, you will not be disappointed."- M.K. / Google / Dec 29, 2019
Forma skin rejuvenation is safe for all ages, genders, and skin types. Ideal candidates are men and/or women with mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face, jaw, neck, thighs, knees, upper arms, abdomen, or back. Patients with a significant amount of sagging or loose skin are not ideal candidates for Forma and may benefit from a surgical lift procedure.
Your Forma procedure will be performed within the comfort of a Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery treatment room. As it is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure, no anesthesia is required or necessary for the treatment. A cool gel (much like ultrasound gel) will be applied to your treatment area in preparation for your treatment. Finally, the Forma handheld applicator is passed evenly over the treatment area to ensure your results are uniform.
What to Expect
When your treatment is finished, the treated area will be cleaned and a moisturizer will be applied. You will be able to return to your daily routine within two days, but you should avoid hot water, or scrubbing the treatment area for several days after your session. A series of six treatments over a period of eight weeks is recommended to achieve optimal results. However, some patients notice dramatic results following their very first session.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Forma work?
Using radiofrequency energy to penetrate your skin’s deep layers, Forma stimulates the production of collagen, improving skin elasticity so your skin appears smoother and softer.
Is Forma safe?
Forma is safe for virtually every part of the face or body. Among the most common facial areas treated are the forehead, Crow’s feet, eyelids (both upper and lower), jowls, smile lines, necklines, and the nasolabial folds. The most commonly treated body areas are the arms and abdomen.
Are there any side effects?
With its noninvasive facial rejuvenation technology and deep-layer targeting, Forma treatments are virtually pain-free and require no downtime for recovery. You may experience minor reddening in the treated area, but this is common and will subside in a matter of a few hours.
How many treatments will I need?
Optimal results are achieved with a six-week treatment regimen. It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a six-week period. If laxity (the looseness of the skin) is mild, fewer treatments with time spaced out a bit longer between the treatments may be an option. Much of this depends on each patient's individual skin conditions. The schedule of treatments will be based on an evaluation made prior to the regimen.
Can I combine Forma with other procedures?
Forma laser skin tightening is perfectly safe when performed with a majority of other laser procedures, facials, and injectable or filler treatments. For example, Forma patients often combine Forma with Fractora skin resurfacing and Lumecca IPL regimens.
