Stephen Gilbert attended the master class in volumetric face lifting presented by Tim Marten from San Fransisco at the meeting of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
Stephen and Dr Marten both follow the same principles laid down by that Doyen of Facelifting Bruce Connell and have both enhanced their results by adding the patient’s own fat to give a more youthful fuller look without any signs of skin tension
Placed with precision fat can last permanently where it matters.
Mr Gilbert then presented his concept of ‘Arcs of Beauty’ during the meeting proper, using anatomical guidelines from recognised beauties to assist in placing the fat to enhance the patient’s own natural beauty as well as give a look of youthful vigour
Having restored volume and excised excess skin Mr Gilbert insists that the patient have the appropriate skin care to compliment the surgery.
He says it is no good having a youthful shape if the skin looks tired and lifeless.
