I believe embrace® Scar Therapy may be an integral part of the recovery process following various surgical procedures.
LAKE SUCCESS, NY (PRWEB) October 18, 2014
We are excited to announce that Dr. Syed Sayeed is the first plastic and reconstructive surgeon on Long Island to offer embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy, a new technology aimed at minimizing the visibility and thickness of surgical incisions.
“After reviewing a well conducted study looking at abdominoplasty incisions treated with embrace® (REFINE trial) performed by highly regarded plastic surgeons and published in our most esteemed journal (Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Sept 2014), I believe embrace® Scar Therapy may be an integral part of the recovery process following various surgical procedures. While even more studies need to be done, this team of surgeons has taken the first step to provide scientific evidence supporting the use of such a product.”- Syed M. Sayeed MD
Surgeons can recommend many products to minimize scars after surgery. However, embrace®, unlike most other products, has been scientifically tested and shows benefit. Similar to other products, embrace® allows for a healing surgical incision to remain under pressure while remaining warm and moist - all of which are key factors shown to optimize the final appearance of scars. In addition to these properties, embrace® is felt to decrease transverse tension at an incision, a major component of scar thickening. Through its patented Active Stress-Shield Technology scars may be significantly improved.
Dr. Sayeed will apply embrace® a few days after an incision is closed. The “dressing” will be kept in place for approximately 8-10 weeks. Embrace® can only be ordered by a physician and should only be used under physician supervision.
Embrace® is available for purchase from our offices in Lake Success and Huntington Station, NY. Patients interested in obtaining embrace® Scar Therapy may do so after obtaining approval from their surgeon. Dr. Sayeed may also be able to offer scar revision surgery for patients using embrace® during your healing process.
Embrace® can be used after abdominoplasty, c-section, breast surgery, brachioplasty (arm-lifts), thigh lift, thyroidectomy, and many other procedures. While embrace® has been clinically proven to reduce scarring, results may not be the same for all patients.
Dr. Sayeed is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with office locations in Lake Success and Huntington Station, NY. He has been part of the medical community in New York and Long Island for over 10 years and is well respected by his peers. In addition to office consultations and procedures, he provides elective and emergency services including laceration repair and hand injury management at multiple hospitals and emergency rooms from Manhattan to Suffolk County.
