Dr. Robert Lefever: The NHS should pay nothing for botched private sector cosmetic surgery
Daily Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 2010, the government deregulated the provision of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. No longer were they supervised by The Care Standards Commission. Not necessarily as a direct result, cosmetic laser therapy clinics — used for the treatment of thread veins, wrinkles, hair removal and skin resurfacing — took off. Now there are nearly 10,000 in the U.K. A laser unit from China costs as little as £5,000 ($6,423). Training to use one can be minimal. When the procedure is botched, burns and scalds can occur. This may result in scarring, for which the patient may then seek further cosmetic surgery from the NHS. More

Improving necks with laser lifts
WABC-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's a part of the body that millions of women and men hate, but don't exactly know what to do about it. "I tease my daughters that I want to get rid of my turkey neck," Mary Sanzone said. Sanzone always has been self conscious of her neck and chin. "I just think it's one of those things that comes with age and it's one of those facts of life that you kind of have to live with," she said. Not so, says Dr. Matthew Schulman as he performs what he calls a laser neck lift on Sanzone. It's a procedure Shulman developed by combining existing technologies. More

Cosmetic Surgery Times via Modern Medicine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Autologous fat grafting is a safe, effective and durable technique for soft-tissue augmentation, but more importantly, the fat grafts also have regenerative activity that has implications for restoring aged and damaged skin to a healthier condition, says Dr. Sydney R. Coleman. "Fat grafts are much more than fillers that add volume and recreate fullness. They also stimulate tissue repair and rejuvenate skin quality, and my observations are that these benefits are progressive and long-lasting," says Dr. Coleman, clinical assistant professor, department of plastic surgery at New York University Medical Center.
