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!

What to Expect After Surgery

Dr. Dave Fournier, the Director of Anesthesia at Roxsan Surgery Center, goes over the postoperative procedure designed to ensure your safety and make your recovery as fast and as comfortable as possible. Full transcript below.

Transcript:

Postoperatively, most of our patients wake up here in the operating room, not in recovery room. I like to make sure that they’re awake and their reflexes are intact and that they can manage their airway on the way to recovery room. After that they’ll go to recovery room where all the same monitors that they had in surgery will be reapplied and there will be a nurse with them at all times. Dr. Koplin and I are also very close at hand should there be any problems with pain management or anything that needs to be taken care of. The newer modern anesthetics wear off very quickly. We use some of the best agents and techniques here. Usually people are street ready in a half an hour to an hour, some of our longer surgeries we’ll keep people one and a half to two hours before we send them home or to our aftercare, but during that time they can expect to be warm, their pain to be managed, and someone to be watching them very, very closely at all times.
