Date:10/6/2011

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Facial Plastic Surgeon, Davis B. Nguyen, MD is pleased with this week's announcement by Baxter Pharmaceuticals that ARTISS Fibrin Sealant has been approved by the FDA for use in facelifts. Dr. Nguyen was one of seven prominent plastic surgeons in the country who, in 2010, conducted the Phase 3 clinical trials to prove the benefits of using fibrin glue in facelifts. http://www.drdavisnguyen.com/

"The FDA approval confirms that Fibrin Glue is a groundbreaking product that makes facelift surgery much more comfortable for patients," states Dr. Nguyen.  Recovery is more comfortable because drains, normally left in the face for 48 hours after surgery, are eliminated. "Another significant benefit of using Fibrin Glue is its effect on recovery time," notes Dr. Nguyen.  "Patients heal nearly twice as fast."

According to the Baxter release, "The multi-center, prospective, randomized phase III clinical study was performed on 75 patients. The study compared the total drainage volume, collected in a standardized manner, for each side of the face at 24 hours post-surgery using a split-face study design, in which one side of the patient's face was sutured, per standard of care,  while the other received the ARTISS fibrin sealant. The results showed the side sealed by Fibrin Glue swelled and bruised dramatically less; Patients experienced substantially less discomfort."

Always the innovator, Dr. Nguyen is presently conducting independent clinical research trials to demonstrate the efficacy and wound healing benefits of the use of fibrin glue in the endoscopic browlift procedure. Dr. Nguyen is one of only  a few plastic surgeons in the country to offer this ground breaking innovation of combining the minimally invasive endoscopic browlift with fibrin glue wound sealant. The endoscopic approach eliminates scars; using the fibrin glue results in less bruising, less swelling, and faster healing.

"The endoscopic browlift combined with fibrin glue garners the most dramatic results you can achieve from a comparatively small surgery," states  Nguyen.  "My patients often look 10 years younger with this procedure. And, no one can tell they've had anything done."

A pioneer in the use of fibrin glue, Dr. Nguyen has been using fibrin glue in his facelifts for many years prior to his participation in the recent FDA clinical trials: the surgeon and his mentor, Dr. Frank Kramer of the famed Lasky Clinic in Beverly Hills, published an independent study on the benefits of using Fibrin Glue with facelifts in 2007. It was published in the preeminent medical journal, "Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery" and helped to propel the clinical trials that led to the FDA approval of fibrin glue.

Dr. Nguyen is dual Board Certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. For information about Davis B.
