Online PR News – 11-May-2010 – – Portsmouth, N.H. – Dr. Lawrence Gray of Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center attended the 2010 meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, held from April 23rd to the 27th, in Washington, D.C. to review the latest in surgical techniques and patient safety. More than 1,400 surgeons from around the world attended this scientific meeting, A Capital Meeting with a Global Perspective. The conference offered board-certified plastic surgeons learning opportunities in scientific sessions, teaching courses, panels, papers and seminars by leaders in both American and international plastic surgery.
Among the topics presented were the myths of laser liposuction and injection lipolysis, revealing that since their introduction four years ago, there has been no scientific evidence that these techniques provide any benefits over traditional liposuction. “Hot Topics and Emerging Technology” in plastic surgery included a review of new options in injectables and non–invasive procedures, which are expanding patient options and producing even more pleasing patient results. Reviews also show that there is largely a lack of evidence of any skin tightening using Thermage™. While at the conference, Dr. Gray learned the latest techniques on rhinoplasty, including an increasing focus on shaping noses with sutures instead of using grafts. The latest updates on breast-lift surgery showed that more surgeons are now focusing on actual elevation and suspension of the breast, which Dr. Gray has been doing for the past two years.
Dr. Gray attended the Sientra™ Silicone Gel Breast Implant investigator meeting and is the only investigator from New England. According to the company, a six-year, FDA study indicates the future for this product is promising and Sientra™ plans to have its silicone implants available in the near future.
