Plastic Surgeon in Rhode Island to Deliver Lecture on Facelift

At the Ocean House in Westerly, RI, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick Sullivan will deliver a lecture on the latest techniques in facial rejuvenation and the facelift procedure. Dr. Sullivan will offer his knowledge and expertise on a variety of cosmetic enhancement procedures, including eyelid surgery, neck sculpting, and advanced facelift surgery that Dr. Sullivan says results in a natural appearance, as well as the latest information on the use of fat and stem cells in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures.

Board-certified Rhode Island plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick Sullivan will lecture at an educational seminar hosted by the Ocean House in Westerly, RI on September 1, 2011. During the lecture, Dr. Sullivan will discuss his approach to a special type of face lift that emphasizes a natural facial shape and contour. He will also discuss eyelid surgery and neck sculpting, and address how the use of fat grafting and stem cells has impacted the comprehensive process of facial rejuvenation as a whole, and the facelift in Rhode Island in particular.

Dr. Sullivan says he plans to demonstrate how today’s facial rejuvenation procedures, such as the eyelid surgery or the facelift, should be more than simple skin-lifting. “Face lifting is only a part of the overall rejuvenation process. Facial sculpting with removal of fatty collections in the jowls and neck areas, and fat grafting to address facial deflation are also integral parts of the process.” Dr. Sullivan adds that the newer techniques he will discuss are an interesting step forward in aesthetic enhancement because they allow plastic surgeons to use less-invasive techniques. “By teaming up with our MD anesthesiologists, even extensive plastic surgery procedures can now be done using intravenous sedation rather than general anesthesia, which we feel is safer and can help speed up the recovery time required.”

Ultimately, Dr. Sullivan says the key to a successful cosmetic enhancement procedure is a combination of a surgeon’s skill and artistry, clear communication, and well-developed patient expectations. “Seminars like this where people can come see and experience the truly exciting advances in plastic surgery are wonderful ways to become educated. They can learn about a variety of new treatments and hear from patients who have had plastic surgery and find out about their motivation and experiences. People can then know what to look out for and what does and doesn’t work.”

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.
