|Dr. B. Todd Schaeffer’s Innovative Endoscopic Liposhaving Technique Reshapes the Neck More Accurately and with Quicker Recovery|
NEW YORK– JUNE 26, 2009 – Recognizing that the neck area has become increasingly important to people looking to improve their body image, New York-based plastic surgeon Dr. B. Todd Schaeffer, MD, FACS, has devised a new practice called
Endoscopic Liposhaving for Neck Recontouring.
Endoscopic Liposhaving, which creates a more youthful, soft and groomed appearance for the lower face and neck region, has proven to be more accurate than traditional practices and leads to a quicker recovery. The procedure safely and permanently removes fat cells of the neck, helping patients look years younger.
“As people prepare to look their best for the summer season, they are recognizing that the neck area is an important part of their overall appearance,” states Dr. Schaeffer, who has offices in Lake Success on Long Island.
Dr. Schaeffer’s Endoscopic Liposhaving technique uses two existing methods – a soft tissue shaver and an endoscope. The endoscope looks under the skin and above the neck muscles, allowing for safe and precise removal of fat with minimal trauma. The patient’s recovery time is only five to seven days.
“Endoscopic Liposhaving offers a precise alternative to conventional liposuction,” says Dr. Schaeffer. “It is a quick procedure and one in which patients can easily achieve their cosmetic goals, recuperating faster so they look and feel great for the summer months.”
