Washington, DC Plastic Surgeon Pioneers New Minimal-Scarring Technique
Date:12/4/2008

One of the most respected and innovative plastic surgeons in the nation has built upon his development of the minimal-incision arm lift technique by adding a new liposuction procedure to the process. Vaser® LipoSelection combined with Dr. Mark Richards' pioneering minimal incision brachioplasty gives patients better contours and virtually invisible scars that are hidden inside the armpit – and the world of plastic surgery is taking notice.

Washington, DC (Vocus) December 4, 2008 -- Dr. Mark E. Richards, one of the leading plastic surgeons in the Washington, DC and Maryland area, is continuing his commitment to developing new and innovative body contouring techniques that advance the field of plastic surgery and give patients even better, more natural-looking results without the appearance of scarring. Dr. Richards is utilizing his minimal-incision arm lift (brachioplasty) technique, a revolutionary procedure he developed to eliminate unsightly scars along the arm, in conjunction with Vaser® LipoSelection® to eliminate extra fat and skin hanging from the upper arms. By making incisions in the armpit instead of the traditional method of a long incision down the arm, Dr. Richards can provide effective reduction of hanging tissue with the added benefit of virtually invisible scars.

More than 200 Washington DC arm lift (brachioplasty) patients have benefitted from this state-of-the-art procedure, and Dr. Mark Richards says it has distinct advantages over traditional methods. "For many people who are unhappy with the appearance of their arms, this is the first option that offers real improvement plus the discretion of a hidden incision."

Utilizing Vaser® LipoSelection® - one of the newer technologies offered by Dr. Mark Richards' Washington, DC liposuction – allows Dr. Richards to break up fat before suctioning it out, making it easier to extract without harming surrounding tissues. This helps to minimize swelling and bruising. Combined with the minimal-incision arm lift, LipoSelection® results in a more comfortable recovery and natural appearance, often without indication that the patient has "had work done."

Dr. Mark E. Richards has made a name for himself among the medical community for being an innovator, improving on plastic surgery techniques to make them more effective with less visible scarring. His minimal-incision arm lift development led the Aesthetic Surgery Society to ask him to film an hour-long video so that plastic surgeons around the world could learn the benefits of the procedure. Dr. Richards has also lectured about minimal incision arm lift at the International Masters Courses in Aesthetic Surgery (IMCAS) in Paris. The IMCAS is the largest meeting of aesthetic physicians from outside the U.S., including doctors from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Dr. Richards says Washington DC, LipoSelection® many arm lift patients can finally experience relief from stubborn, hanging fat deposits in the arms with this effective procedure, and start feeling more confident in their daily lives. "Patients can now wear tank tops and short sleeves, play tennis, and engage in other activities with no embarrassing arm skin waving against their bodies."
