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 Before Surgery

Dr. Dave Fournier, the Director of Anesthesia at Roxsan Surgery Center, reviews the preoperative procedure designed to ensure your safety and comfort are met by the highest of standards throughout the course of the entire surgery process. Full transcript below.

Transcript:

Patients don’t just meet anesthesia the morning of surgery sitting in the hallway. We have a great team of nurses and a surgeon who look at your paperwork and do multiple workups so that all the questions and if there’re any unanswered questions we have a team of expert consultants and cardiovascular surgery, oncology, and so many other subspecialties that we fall upon to get us more information so that when it comes time for your surgery you’re really well prepared. I speak to every patient the night before surgery. I’ve already reviewed all your information and I take that time to get to know you and let you get to know me so that when we meet in the morning we’re already off to a good start. When you get here in the morning I’m here from the minute you walk in the door until you leave. I do a very thorough anesthesia and physical history with you and we spend some time privately in the morning so that –unrushed– you can talk and tell me everything that I need to know and that I can tell you everything that you need to know so that there won’t be any tricks or surprises for anybody
