Education has been an integral priority for us this year. One of the highlights has definitely been the opportunity we were given to educate others on the hot topics in plastic surgery. We were grateful to be able to do this in the Providence Journal explaining the specialized treatments we provide to patients who came to us to receive their care here in Providence, Rhode Island. More readers seemed to be drawn to this with the front page coverage and the pictures from the operating room. We felt the high point was the superb writing done by G. Wayne Miller who studied the topic in depth interviewing internationally renowned stem cell specialists from the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh.
Mr. Miller also followed the treatment and care of a woman who came from the West Coast to have us perform specialized face lifting, contouring, and fat injections with her associated stem cells. He appropriately emphasized how we have our patients bring us pictures of themselves from earlier in life – especially ages 18 years to 25 – to help us plan and get a very natural enhancement. By him being in the operating room to see how we perform the surgery provided an inside look for people who are especially interested in the details.
One of the most innovative trends in plastic surgery this past year was the introduction to the Silhouette InstaLift. We were fortunate to be one of the only practices in the New England area to offer this No-Knife Facelift to our patients for some time. This new and minimally invasive treatment uses advanced technology to help redefine facial contours, giving patients immediate, natural-looking results with minimal downtime. The Silhouette InstaLift is a breakthrough in facial rejuvenation technology. We continue to be enthusiastic about this treatment in select patients.
