Naples, Florida (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
Cosmetic surgery is a field that offers a wide range of services to patients. With technology and surgical procedures constantly evolving, the cosmetic operations to which patients have access are also continually changing. The Wall Street Journal reports that a surgeon in Orlando, Florida, is now offering an advanced procedure called the MACS Facelift. Dr. Elizabeth Fox explains how such new procedures can cater to the needs of specific patients.
According to the article, the MACS Facelift is a state-of-the-art operation that utilizes shorter incisions than traditional facelifts. As such, the dissection required to perform the procedure is limited and the recovery time is shorter. Additionally, notes Dr. James Matas, the MACS Facelift offers facial rejuvenation while allowing patients to benefit from a less extensive surgical procedure.
Both Dr. Matas and Dr. Fox underscore the importance of choosing the right procedure for a specific patient. Dr. Fox explains that plastic surgeons are experienced in determining the best operation for a patient, as they understand both the expectations and needs of individuals and the capabilities of a wide range of surgical procedures. As such, it is crucial that patients undergo surgeries for which they are good candidates. Dr. Matas explains the factors that make a patient a good candidate for the MACS Facelift. According to the article, “Dr. Matas says a patient with moderate jowling, moderate skin laxity, and mild neck skin looseness is generally the ideal candidate, although a necklift can be added or a traditional facelift may be recommended in the event of significant neck laxity.”
Dr. Elizabeth Fox understands that the benefits of such advanced surgical options are many, so long as the patients remain aware of the goals of the procedure. “The focus for facial rejuvenation is to achieve a soft beauty of the face, and to maintain it over time,” asserts Dr. Elizabeth Fox. “Facial architecture, physics, and restoration of volume all contribute to top plastic surgery results. Limiting scars with any reduction of longevity or youthfulness is neither practical nor valuable. Placing necessary incisions in hidden locations, making them imperceptible, can lead to more positive, long-lasting results. The goal is to look better in 10 years than one appears preoperatively.”
Dr. Fox is encouraged by the continual development of new surgical procedures, as she understands that they stand to benefit patients and improve the quality of work that surgeons can provide. She looks forward to future innovation within the industry and reminds patients and surgeons to consider the ways in which advanced procedures may prove valuable.
