Leading cosmetic dermatologist & plastic surgeon highlight the features and benefits of minimally invasive surgery for aesthetic procedures & breast augmentation
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2014 -- Minimally invasive surgery is an umbrella term that is used to describe surgery performed using small incisions, an endoscopic camera and modified instruments, within the body of the patient, rather than using a large, open incision. It has many applications in modern medicine, including aesthetic plastic surgery procedures such as a face & neck lift and brow lift, and there are many benefits to patients from this type of surgery.
To discuss some specific examples of how minimally invasive surgery is used for aesthetic enhancement, this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net, show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, talks with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and experienced surgeon in minimally invasive surgery, Dr Jonathan Shifren from his Los Angeles practice.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Shifren begin by discussing the different features of minimally invasive surgery, particularly when applied to a face lift and brow lift. They explain the major differences in technique as well as the results, downtime and patient recovery aspects of the surgery. They follow that discussion with one around the latest procedures used for breast augmentation, where there is also a minimally invasive surgery option available. This is where small incisions are made in the armpit area, and the surgery is done using endoscopic techniques and instruments. Other techniques for breast augmentation are also discussed, including the choice of implants and also the use of a patient’s own fat in a new breast enhancement procedure known as SVELT – Small Volume Elective Lipo Transfer.
