New techniques get low approval ratings

Non-surgical techniques are so appealing in concept, but results continue to disappoint patients. Patient surveys posted on Realself.com have revealed unfavourable results for Thermage, Mesotherapy/Liposdissolve, and especially Velasmooth. Surgical procedures that are often performed by doctors with minimal training (e.g. Lifestyle lift, and liposuction), also get predictably low ratings.  If it seems too good to be true……….

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    Double-chin can respond very well to liposuction, but in cases where there is poor elasticity to the skin we often recommend an additional procedure. Necklift, or a procedure with suspension sutures are possible options.

    Thank you for telling it like it is.

    I would like to go on a rant about how many times I was sucked in by falsified performance data by laser, light source, dermal heating and radiofrequency device manufacturers but I will summarize by stating that at least now there are educated people like Dr. Kreidstein who are cutting through all of the bull.
