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!

The Three Visits

Dr. Koplin explains the course of three meetings, designed to discover what your exact surgery goals are, and the process of working with you to formulate a plan that will give you the great results you want after surgery. Full transcript below.

Transcript:

If you’ve never had plastic surgery before we know that this can be an intimidating experience. Well, we do a lot of things to make that as easy a process as possible, and one of the most important is seeing you three times before surgery. What does that mean? Well, we always have a consultation to begin with. The consultation is when I talk to you about what it is you’re interested in; where we make a plan and I explain to you what the actual surgery and the outcome will be. I also want you to meet the office –the office staff– and become comfortable with us. The second visit is called our preoperative visit. That means you come in and we go in and we refine and review everything that we spoke about the first time. The third visit is on the morning of surgery. You get to meet my anesthesia provider, you’ll get to meet the staff that will be taking care of you at surgery, and I go over the plan one final time to be certain that my plan and your wishes are the same. I hope that this helped you and it’s been my pleasure talking to you. I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin.
