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!

Role of Anesthesia Provider

Dave Fournier is the Director of Anesthesia at Roxsan Surgery Center and in this video he gives an introduction to his important role in the surgery process. Full transcript below.


A lot of what happens behind the scenes in preparing a patient for surgery and getting a good result is transparent to the patient. For instance, my role; I coordinate the reviewing of all the documents from consultants, from the people we’ve had you speak to, electrocardiogram lab work and so on and so forth. I’ve read your chart thoroughly and reviewed it. I will call you the night before surgery just so that we can get to know each other and that I can review things with you, like when and what medicines to take before surgery, when to not have anything to eat or drink, what to expect, what to be prepared for, and I give people a little preview of what their morning experience is going to be like, from meeting the nurse on through. I also speak to every patient, not only the night before, but in depth, I do a very thorough history and physical with the patients in private where we can review all of the stuff in detail so that there are no surprises for them and there are no surprises for me.
