"Uneven surface and skin laxity after liposuction are very common, especially in patients of certain age or if the patient's weight changes," said Dr. Alex De Souza, a Plastic Surgeon with offices in Charleston, West Virginia. "I use Thermage as the best non-invasive treatment available to correct these minor imperfections and obtain smoother results which translates to happier patients."
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)*, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS)** and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) mention asymmetry, rippling of the skin, bumps, uneven surfaces and loose skin as the most common unwanted results of liposuction.
When the Thermage procedure is performed after a liposuction surgery it can help reduce these surgical side effects with proven skin tightening and deep contouring of the body. Thermage can further improve the results of liposuction, increasing patient satisfaction with the overall outcome.
"Several of our clinicians have been using Thermage for post-liposuction skin tightening and body shaping for some time now," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer at Thermage. "The results they are seeing are remarkable and, in the opinion of these doctors, Thermage offers an excellent solution for the correction of unwanted results of liposuction."
These new guidelines will be presented for the first time during a webinar by Dr. Alex De Souza on June 25th, 2008 at 5:00pm PDT. For details and to register go to http://www.thermage.com/physicians/events.cfm
