KOREAN SURGEONS VISIT FACIAL PLASTIC & AESTHETIC LASER CENTER TO LEARN ADVANCED SMARTLIPO & SMARTLIFTING TECHNIQUES. DR. GENTILE SCHEDULED TO LECTURE IN SEOUL, KOREA.
Dr. Richard D. Gentile a board certified facial plastic surgeon with offices in Garfield Heights/Independence, Fairlawn and Boardman Ohio was visited by five surgeons from Seoul, Korea August 25-26, 2009. The Korean specialists were visiting the US to receive advanced training in SmartLipo and Smartlifting techniques. Dr. Gentile prsented the science and art behind his proprietary Smartlifting ™ techniques which he developed over the past several years. The patients being treated underwent a SmartFirming procedure and another a LaserSmartLift. Commenting on the development of this New Laser Facelift Dr. Gentile pointed out that nothing really new has been introduced in face lifting techniques for close to 20 years and the introduction of internal laser techniques for facial rejuvenation offers advanced technological solutions for age old problems. We are pleased that in Europe, Canada and now Asia these advanced techniques are being adopted to benefit patients seeking less invasive methods of facial rejuvenation. Dr. Gentile will travel to Seoul in September to host a workshop on advanced laser lipolysis techniques (SmartLipo) and facial rejuvenation techniques (SmartLifting). The workshop will include live surgery for facial lifting, firming and sculpting utilizing subcutaneous laser techniques.
Less invasive procedures for facial rejuvenation are becoming more and more popular as prospective patients seek out treatment options that offer the best possible results with the least amount of downtime. As the demand for procedures increases and patients spend more time researching options, more informed choices are being made and many times patients opt for technologically advanced procedures. Patients are more likely to undergo these types of procedures since they reduce risk, specifically anesthetic risks.
Smartlifting™ techniques offer three distinct advantages over more traditional techniques. Internal laser surgery reduces intraoperative bleeding making it easier for the surgeon to visualize and complete the lifting portion of the surgery. The vertical vector ?Smartlift? utilizes self retaining sutures to add volume to the cheeks and mid face restoring the heart shaped face of youth and simultaneously corrects neck and jawline laxity. The internal laser technique creates an intrinsic tissue tightening by heating the skin to a predetermined temperature, an added benefit not possible in conventional facelifts.
Smartlifting ™ has been presented at the Meetings of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, The American Society of Plastic Surgery, and The International Maser Course on Aging Skin in Paris, France earlier this year and the American Society for Laser Medicine &Surgery. Dr. Gentile has trained Plastic Surgeons in the Smartlifting techniques and these Surgeons are now performing these procedures around the country, Canada, Europe and now Asia.
The Facial Plastic and Aesthetic Laser Center is Ohio?s technology leader for private plastic surgery practices.
