New for 2022: The Most Important Advances in Plastic Surgery
The pace of innovation in medicine is inspiring and impressive, especially in the field of plastic surgery. As a busy surgeon, it is important to continue to learn and contribute to scientific advances while at the same time being an advocate for patients so they can have the best possible treatment safety and outcomes.
I am often asked what procedures or techniques am I doing now that I was not doing 5 years ago. While the procedures are the same- rhinoplasty, facelift and facial aging, breast reconstruction and augmentation, and some body contour work- the ways of going about the procedures continues to evolve and improve.
So here is my top ten list, of treatment changes and innovations that have made my results even better:
Each of these techniques, technologies and innovations has had a major impact on the plastic surgery care I deliver, from cosmetic surgery to cancer surgery.
