NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Distinguished plastic surgeons from around the world gathered in Kyoto, Japan for the 23rd Biennial Congress of ISAPS to discuss the latest in rejuvenation techniques for face and body. Of the many topics discussed, providing patient safety and satisfaction, advanced techniques for rapid recovery and the use of stem cells could be seen as themes throughout.
Key highlights from the meeting included an advanced, hybrid facelifting technique, which offers superior long lasting results with fewer complications. The pioneer of this Minimal Access Deep Plane Extended Vertical "MADE" Facelift, NY Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Andrew Jacono, also discussed how his approach results in less scarring and accelerated healing time for the patient.
"The 'MADE' facelifting technique represents the future of facelifting," said Dr. Jacono. "I have built on all of the benefits of previous facelifting advances and revolutionized the approach to address drooping cheeks while creating longer lasting neck rejuvenation," explained Dr. Jacono, who is known for his advanced techniques and natural results.
"Much of the world is still using the 'traditional approach,' which is to lift underneath the skin. This disrupts superficial blood vessels causing bruising, as well as the overly tight look often attributed to 'overdone' celebrities. The 'MADE' facelift lifts under the muscle layer, called the 'deep plane,' maintaining the blood supply to the face, which aids in rapid healing and gives a natural result with less scarring."
Another breakthrough technique revealed at the meeting focused on stem cells and how the field of regenerative medicine can be applied to the field of plastic surgery. "While many non-invasive, non-efficacious 'spa-like' services have touted stem cells for years, giving them a bad name, stem cells, promise great benefits when properly applied to plastic and reconstructive surgery," explained Dr. Jacono "Stem cells used effectively can be seen in work with platelet rich plasma (PRP), growth factors and fat harvesting," said Dr. Jacono.
