Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
Dr. Grady Core, a board certified plastic surgeon from Birmingham, AL, spoke at the June 2013 Multi-Specialty Symposium in Las Vegas. The Multi-Specialty Symposium is an annual conference held by the Multi-Specialty Foundation, a not-for-profit educational foundation working to bring together the leading physicians in the four fields of aesthetic medicine and surgery (oculopastic, dermatologic, facial plastic and plastic surgeries).
The Multi-Specialty Foundation invited Dr. Core to speak at this year’s conference on his lateral access blepharoplasty and endoscopic brow lift techniques. Dr. Core is a leader in the fields of plastic and facial plastic surgeries. He has received national acclaim as one of the inventors of endoscopic plastic surgery and has been selected as one of the Best Doctors in the U.S. He has been teaching his techniques throughout the world since 1992 and has been an invited to other speaking engagements at several prestigious universities in the United States and overseas.
Dr. Core co-developed endoscopic surgical applications to the facial region in 1991 and has since perfected his techniques. His presentation on lateral access blepharoplasty explained the technique of making a one centimeter incision and going in through the side. When compared to the current two standard methods of performing blepharoplasty, Dr. Core’s technique presents fewer risks to the eyelids themselves. He has been performing this technique in his Birmingham practice for five years and has seen improved results among his patients.
Dr. Core’s endoscopic brow lift is now considered the gold standard in forehead rejuvenation. It involves making several small incisions in the scalp to elevate and properly position the eyebrows to reduce frown lines and wrinkles. Previously, brow lift required an incision running across the entirety of the scalp likely resulting in a visible scar and numbness of the scalp.
The Multi-Specialty Symposium stands as the only time that physicians from all four fields come together to share and educate in regards to their specific specialties. As a result, doctors are better able learn and to better treat their patients with the latest techniques and approaches. Dr. Core has continually attended this symposium and is a major contributor.
