New York, NY (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Renowned Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Steinbrech of Gotham Plastic Surgery is excited to offer a revolutionary new technique in less invasive facial rejuvenation: the Ultrasound Short-Incision Facelift.
The Ultrasound Short-Incision Facelift combines ultrasound energy with facelift surgery. The use of ultrasound energy (Ulthera) allows for a much shorter incision to be made. Rather than extending from the scalp at the temple area to in front of and behind the ear and ending in the lower scalp. The ultrasound facelift enables the incision to end just under the earlobe. This means that women are now able to wear their hair up and both men and women can have short hairstyles without extensive visible scarring.
The Ultrasound Short-Incision Facelift uses the same safe ultrasound energy used during pregnancy. In this case, energy is delivered to the underlying supporting layer of the face known as the SMAS. The energy tightens the SMAS and lifts the overlying skin, thus minimizing the need for surgery in certain areas to allow for an overall less extensive, less invasive facelift procedure. Not only are the incisions smaller, patients experience significantly less swelling and bruising and shorter recovery times as well.
Dr. Steinbrech was recently featured on 20/20 with Barbara Walters in a pieced called “The Cutting Edge: Younger than Ever” about the most cutting-edge procedures that often, don’t involve any cutting at all. Dr. Steinbrech discussed the new ultrasound facelift and how it is achieving excellent results with less extensive excision.
Dr. Steinbrech is a fully-trained, board certified plastic surgeon with particular expertise in minimally invasive aesthetics. He obtained his undergraduate degree and medical degree from the University of Iowa. This was followed by eight years of surgical training at New York University in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Steinbrech has been selected by the Consumers’ Research Council of America as one of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons.
