It isn’t unusual for men and women to drop in during their lunch time for an injectable treatment or minor liposuction treatment.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2012
Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon Dr. Raffi Hovsepian is co-editor, author, and co-author to entries in the recently released book titled, “Cosmetic Medicine and Minimally Invasive Surgery,” an issue in the series Clinics in Plastic Surgery. This volume discusses why more plastic and reconstructive surgeons are pursuing cosmetics as part of their practice and how plastic surgeons can make minimally invasive procedures a greater part of their practice.
Dr. Hovsepian says, “more and more plastic surgeons are turning to cosmetic medicine and minimally invasive surgeries. Patients want trained doctors to perform the procedures, but they also don’t want the pain and downtime associated with major surgeries.” In this multidisciplinary issue, Dr. Hovsepian is co-editor and co-author on multiple advances in cosmetic and minimally invasive plastic surgery. This book provides detailed information for plastic surgeons on how to perform minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
Continuing, Dr. Hovsepian added, “new technology has made it possible to provide a little nip and little tuck in a fraction of the time and with minimal discomfort for patients. In fact, it isn’t unusual for men and women to drop in during their lunch time for an injectable treatment or minor liposuction treatment.” In this publication, “Cosmetic Medicine and Minimally Invasive Surgery”, Dr. Hovsepian expounds upon the technologies that provide medical and surgical solutions for cosmetic indications, including neurotoxins, cosmeceuticals, sclerotherapy, dermabrasion, fillers, lasers, and other energy sources. These include face and body contouring devices that provide solutions that respond to a consumer demand for less aggressive solutions to the aging face and body contour deformities.
"As a plastic surgeon, I’ve always had a desire to help my colleagues understand the best approaches for meeting the expectations of patients through the use of great tools. This book does just that," states Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Hovsepian, who holds membership in other professional societies including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The International Confederation for Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery (IPRAS). "My interest and focus on treating patients and teaching others in the profession has lead me to achieve certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and the European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS)," he adds, making him Triple Board Certified as a surgeon.
In addition to attaining these three distinguished board certifications, he has been indoctrinated into American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), an accomplishment achieved by only a handful of surgeons.
