Dr. Lindsey's News

Dr. Lindsey recommends deep-plane facelifting with muscle tightening for the best and most durable results.

Most patients with aged features of the face desire tightening of the neck and improvement of the jowls.  The most predictable and durable results require a combination of tightening the underlying facial muscles as well as comprehensive facial skin redraping.

This deep-plane facelift allows for repositioning of aged facial elements securely so that long-lasting results can be achieved.

The type of muscle tightening includes a platysmaplasty and elevation and fixation of the SMAS.

Dr. Lindsey discusses and reviews his results with this technique in his article published in Annals of Plastic Surgery in May of 2009.  Download the Article Adobe Acrobat File

Acellular dermal matrix simplifies and improves implant-based breast reconstruction

Acellular dermal matrix is a biologic material that is implanted in the chest wall area to allow and facilitate implant-based breast reconstruction following mastectomy. This material is processed human dermis, which allows implantation of a permanent breast prosthesis or tissue expander at the time of mastectomy. In the past, tissue expanders were routinely required. Although delivering good results, the expansion process was prolonged and somewhat uncomfortable for many patients.

This new material allows for a quicker and much more normal restoration of breast form and size and foreshortens the reconstructive process.

Most patients are candidates for this improved type of breast reconstruction. Patients excluded include smokers, those who have a history of radiation to the chest wall, and those who have collagen vascular disease.
