New Year, New You!

2013 has been a busy year and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2014!

As we say goodbye to the current year, I wanted to thank my loyal patients for your support and wish you all a wonderful 2014. Our office building has seen a major construction project this past year (still unfinished), and we used the opportunity to perform a complete remodel of our office. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop in for a cup of freshly brewed coffee and take a quick tour of our gorgeous new facility!

What else happened in 2013?

Everything! We moved a step closer to the Holy Grail of plastic surgery.

This year saw the development of what may be the single most revolutionary procedure for rejuvenating aging skin and soft tissue. Not by pulling, freezing, burning or lasering, but truly repairing and restoring damaged skin. We call it Nano Stem Serum, and this is how it works:

I remain a leading edge surgeon and advocate for Natural Fat Transfer, where we use natural adipose (fat) tissue to fill lines and soften the thinning face as it ages. For reference, you can hear me talk about this in multiple short videos on my website. We now take the remaining, purified fat and gently process it to extract stem cells from the tissue and concentrate them into a smooth liquid. This serum is thin enough to be injected directly into damaged skin.

We can now make skin more healthy by placing growth factors and reparative stem cells exactly where we want them - in the skin! Injected into crows’ feet, upper lips lines and crepey skin, we see thickening and a smoother appearance. In the décolletage, we see softening and disappearance of wrinkles. We are also studying the effect of placing Nano Stem Serum into the lower eyelid skin for improvement of dark circles and skin discoloration.

Please feel free to call our office for any additional information we might be able to provide, and wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year!

Other Applications of Natural Fat Transfer

Dr. Koplin discusses the use of natural fat transfer in the face – a powerful tool for creating a youthful, beautiful, and natural looking effect. Full transcript below.

Transcript:

I’d like to talk about some other applications and uses of natural fat transfer. And the one that I use it for most in my practice is in the face and in combination with facial surgeries. Why is that? Well it used to be that we thought that as the face ages everything gets loose and we need to come along and pull on it, and pull on it tightly. And if you go through the magazines and you look through Beverly Hills and restaurants and videos and movies you’ll see all the reasons that that is actually a very bad concept, because the newest acceptance of what aging really is it’s not just that things get loose, it’s that we lose volume in our face .What do I mean by that? It means our faces get thinner as we get older, and what surgeons have done that is terribly wrong is to try to fix that by pulling, and you get a skeletal, unnatural, tight and pulled face. So the big change now into creating a natural face is to make the face look the way that it used to look and the face that used to look young was fuller and had baby fat in it, it had some roundness to it. So the big concept now in surgery of the aging face is using natural fat transfer into the areas where the volume has been lost. I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin, and I thank you for listening.
