Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 7, 2006
In an age where both external beauty and internal esteem are exalted, more and more people are discovering the extensive benefits that modern technology has brought to improving appearance and enhancing self-confidence. While there are many options for patients looking to improve their looks, none is as revolutionary and effective as a Contour Threading facelift.
A Contour Threading facelift is a remarkable new procedure performed by nationally renowned Chicago plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Bloch that provides the long lasting improvements of traditional facelifts without the pain, scarring, and prolonged recovery time associated with older techniques.
Working through minute incisions strategically placed around the face, Dr. Bloch inserts thin threads with small cogs that gently lift drooping skin and sagging tissue. Once the premium placement is achieved, he utilizes safe surgical thread to attach the tissue to their new locations. The entire procedure usually takes less than an hour.
Contour Threading facelifts are even more effective when combined with a treatment that uses the revolutionary procedure called Thermage®. Thermage® is a safe and effective way to tighten skin and restore natural contours to the face, chin, and cheeks. New collagen is generated through the use of high powered radio waves applied directly to the skin. This collagen helps the newly tightened skin and tissues adhere to their enhanced features more effectively.
"Virtually every patient who undergoes a Contour Threading facelift is astounded by the nearly instantaneous results and the significantly protracted recovery time," reports Dr. Bloch. "Patients are also pleased that the effects last longer and can cost less than older facelifts."
However, Dr. Bloch points out that he does not perform the Contour Threading facelift procedure exclusively and neglect other options, as he feels that it is extremely important for the patient to choose a doctor that doesn't have a bias towards any particular cosmetic surgery. "This type of procedure does not take the place of the traditional cosmetic facelift," he adds.
Dr. Steven Bloch is a board-certified Chicago plastic surgeon that combines the soul of an artist with the prowess of a skilled medical professional. He received his medical degree from State University of New York, Kings County Hospital, and completed a surgical internship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Bloch served residencies in both surgery and Plastic Surgery at the University of Wisconsin where he was also named Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery. He has made appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CBS, FOX, NBC, WGN, and the Discovery Channel, and has been featured in premier fashion magazines Vogue and Allure.
