/24-7PressRelease/ - Jacksonville, FL, May 30, 2008 - Mr. Joseph Zolton, President/CEO and Mr. David Wood Vice President of Operations for Isis Cosmetic Medical Centers are pleased to announce the completion of their expansion into the greater Jacksonville and St. Augustine area. Isis Cosmetic of Jacksonville is scheduled to commence operations and offer clinical services and consultations on June 9, 2008. Isis Cosmetic is a unique state-wide medical practice that provides only minimally invasive body sculpting and contouring procedures - the technological alternatives to traditional liposuction.
VASER LipoSelection and SmartLipo are new less invasive cosmetic surgeries that gently and precisely liquefy and remove fat from the body. The combined use of these technologies allows Isis Cosmetic surgeons to sculpt the body and selectively remove unwanted areas of fat. Just as importantly, these new devices also allow the surgeon to leave specific regions or quantities of fat, resulting in a more artistically "sculpted" and natural body contour.
Traditional liposuction manually rips and removes fat tissue using power suction. This process removes not only the fat tissue, but also other tissues such as: nerves, blood vessels, and collagen. In addition to the indiscriminate removal of these other essential tissues there are other possible and sometimes common adverse effects including but not limited to: uneven results, sagging loose skin, extreme bruising and swelling, a significantly long recovery period, as well as pain. Furthermore, if the traditional liposuction procedure is performed with general anesthesia, all the risks associated with the anesthesia further increases the risk to the patient.
The precision, safety, and gentleness provided through VASER and SmartLipo's liquefaction of fat allows for this procedure to be preformed under local anesthetic while the patient is awake but mildly sedated. This is commonly referred to as "wide awake lipo," as seen on Entertainment Tonight. The procedure is performed by Isis' board certified surgeons in our facility and usually takes only two to three hours from start to finish. One of the greatest advantages gained through using these gentler methods is that there is little to no downtime for patients.
Liposuction is the most commonly sought after cosmetic procedure for men and women in the United States according the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Isis Cosmetic is proud to bring these medical advances and its expertise in fat removal to the greater Jacksonville and St. Augustine area.
