Ocean Clinic’s Dr. Kaye has been on the road again, this time presenting to 100 specialist plastic surgeons in Marseille, France.
Lecturing at the 5th ISPRES Congress (International Society of Plastic & Regenerative Surgeons), Dr. Kaye discussed the benefits of using water-jets for facial rejuvenation.
He conducted a video workshop about the ‘Aqua Lift’ technique, which is used both for separating the soft tissues of the face during a facelift, and for harvesting fat to be transferred to the face.
Dr. Kaye explains: “I was lecturing on the safety and efficiency of water-jets, which I am now using in all my facelift and fat grafting procedures.
“The water represents a significantly gentler way to detach tissues without damaging surrounding nerves and vessels, or rupturing the fat cells in the case of fat harvesting. It means that there’s less trauma sustained, resulting in better, faster healing and results.”
The congress also included keynotes on the regenerative capabilities of stem cell transfer (Stromal Vascular Fraction or SVF) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy (also known as “vampire facelift”). Dr. Kaye also got the low-down on the latest surgical tools and equipment during the three-day meeting.
