Dr. Robert Rho: Noninvasive Laser Surgery Effective in Improving Appearance

Share Article

Recent reports suggest that a relatively new laser face lift procedure is not only less-invasive for patients, but also more affordable than traditional face lift surgeries. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Rho expands on the benefits that laser technology can offer.

While trends in plastic surgery have come and gone over recent decades, growing advancements in technology have also improved those procedures that have remained popular among patients throughout the years. A recent report from ABC Action News highlights a relatively new procedure that involves laser technology. It suggests that the recent developments in laser lift procedures, in comparison with traditional face lift options, offer a less-invasive alternative for patients. In addition, laser lift procedures are reported to cost less than previous methods. As a plastic surgeon who has witnessed the benefits of laser technology, Dr. Robert Rho endorses these trends and explains many professionals in the industry are turning to such tools.

The article focuses on one patient, Lauren Gause, who reports that instead of seeking out a traditional face lift, she pursued a laser lift procedure “as a [birthday] present to herself.” Gause tells ABC, “It serves to tighten the areas of the jowls and the neck line. The older I get, I seem to be getting more drooping in that area.” Dr. Robert Rho explains that the option is certainly one that offers improvements from older methods, “Laser surgery can be very effective in tightening skin. By targeting collagen, the laser can produce tighter, younger looking skin, and there is little downtime with this minimally invasive procedure.”

In the article, Dr. Ric Mendoza of Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery offers additional explanation as to how the procedure works, “There's a laser fiber that we use and we introduce it through three tiny little incisions in the face, one behind each ear lobe and one by the chin. It is a side-firing laser, and we can turn it to heat up the tissue deep and we can rotate it to heat up under the surface of the skin.”

While the article reports positive results among those who pursue the option, Dr. Robert Rho notes that because the procedure is relatively new, many may not be aware of this noninvasive alternative. Dr. Robert Rho encourages those who are concerned about their aging appearance to consult trusted medical professionals about the many benefits that laser lift technology can provide.
