The FDA has issued a warning for the use of lipodissolve, a treatment which is supposed to dissolve fat in localized areas.
A recent article published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons details advances in techniques used for fillers and botox treatments. Rod J. Rohrich and Kathleen S. Herbig, the study’s authors, demonstrate Dr. Rohrich’s technique for maximizing comfort for patients.
The new anti-wrinkle facial filler Dysport, which could be used as an alternative to Botox, noticeably reduced frown lines between the eyes, according to users and independent reviewers in a study involving plastic surgeons at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
“Our study confirmed that Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) is a safe and effective tool in fighting wrinkles,” said Dr. Rod Rohrich, chairman of plastic surgery at UT Southwestern and one of the study’s authors.
