Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2007
Childbirth, aging and/or excess weight often result in the loss of a youthful lean abdominal wall. Traditional Tummy Tucks often eliminate the vertical midline feature that is associated with having great looking abs. But, a new technique developed by Plastic Surgeon, Steve Laverson, M.D., F.A.C.S., of Feel Beautiful Aesthetic Rx of Carlsbad, CA is redefining the Tummy Tuck procedure.
This new technique was recently featured in the Journal of Aesthetic Surgery (http://aestheticsurgeryjournal.com/) in an article titled, Improving Abdominoplasty Results: Reconstruction of the Linea Alba Sulcus by Direct Fat Excision. The article describes in detail how the technique improves patient satisfaction with epigastric contour following Abdominoplasty by establishing a visible midline contour.
To date, Dr. Laverson has performed the new technique in 25 Tummy Tuck procedures with excellent results. "When performed on selected patients this technique can enhance the aesthetic results of Abdominoplasty without increasing undesired results or complications." says Dr. Laverson.
In addition to his new Tummy Tuck technique, Dr. Laverson, offers a myriad of non-surgical and surgical treatments depending on the needs of each patient. The development of new techniques and innovative products in recent years has resulted in minimally invasive and safer procedures that offer longer lasting results, with minimal downtime, while a more diverse range of patients seek procedures.
"Our philosophy is we want to make the Image Enhancement Experience less stressful, threatening, and intimidating" says Dr. Laverson "This is an exciting time in plastic surgery, technological advancements have increased the safety and quality of the results, while a more diverse range of patients seek procedures. However, consumers should be fully advised of risks before consenting to any procedure."
Many patients fail to consider that their results depend mostly on the surgeon. The doctor's aesthetic sense, technical skill, knowledge, judgment, and commitment to help fulfill their vision can mean the difference between a very satisfied patient and a surgical nightmare.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery says the sophisticated consumer will look for board certification, accreditation of surgical facilities when considering both a surgery and a plastic surgeon. This benefits the industry by demanding higher standards and new innovations from all those involved.
Dr. Steve Laverson is a renowned Carlsbad, CA plastic surgeon, Board Certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
