Pittsburgh Cosmetic Surgeon Speaks at AACS Scientific Meeting

Dominic Brandy, M.D. speaks to his peers about the revolutionary QuickLift® procedure

Pittsburgh, PA - March 29, 2006 - At the recent American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) Scientific Meeting held in Orlando, FL., Dominic Brandy, MD, a Pittsburgh-based, board-certified cosmetic surgeon lectured his peers about the QuickLift®, a popular facial procedure he developed in 2004.

The QuickLift® is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation procedure that tightens sagging skin in the lower region of the face and offers patients significant improvement immediately following the surgery. The QuickLift®, which is performed under local anesthesia and takes approximately 1-2 hours, is recommended for healthy men and women between the ages of 45 and 65+ with excess skin along the jaw lines and under the chin. "This procedure is truly remarkable," said Dr. Brandy, board-certified cosmetic surgeon and founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa. "Most patients that come in for a QuickLift on Friday can return to work early the following week. The recovery time is shortened because we use smaller incisions and purse-string sutures to tighten the mid and lower region of the face. This technique allow us to give our patients very dramatic results with little downtime from personal commitments."

Having performed over 800 QuickLift® procedures since 2004, Dr. Brandy is a leader in minimally invasive facial rejuvenation and continues to develop innovative techniques to give patients a natural looking result with the least amount of downtime.
