Dr. Robert Burke, director of the Michigan center for Cosmetic Surgery announces the formation of the first division of noninvasive and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery at an accredited ambulatory surgical facility in Michigan. Noting cosmetic medicine and surgery trends in which men and women seek ambulatory solutions to common cosmetic concerns, a decision was made to create this much needed aesthetic, cosmetic surgery, and cosmetic medicine division. Surveys of men and women have shown an overwhelming need for ambulatory procedures, done in an accredited office in which one is able to return to work later that day or the next. The mission of this division is to restore a more youthful appearance naturally using a combination of replacing lost volume where necessary and gently lifting the facial structures and body tissues in a multidimensional approach.
"This offers expanded choices to both men and women wishing to avoid invasive surgery and longer recovery", according to Dr. Burke.
He also states that, "This division is possible due to advances in aesthetically directed technology over the past 20+ years. Better understanding of body changes that occur with aging and life occurrences in general (such as weight gain and loss; pregnancy; environmental photodamage; and others) have led to advances such as use of platelet rich plasma, lipotransfer (fat transfer), longer lasting cosmetic fillers, absorbable sutures that buttress sagging tissues restoring more youthful contours, advances in use of lasers and radio frequency."
"The advantage of this approach is customization for patients based on their needs, and guided by state of the art diagnostic technology such as digital imaging. This approach allows patients to actively participate in their treatment plan ."
The Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery, directed by Robert H. Burke, MD, FACS is committed to the expansion and success of this noninvasive and minimally invasive division, providing solutions for those seeking these ambulatory options.
Dr. Burke, is a Clinical Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and a Clinical Professor of Facial Plastic Surgery at Michigan State University and an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Michigan. He is principal investigator in FDA breast implant studies by both Mentor and Allergan Corporations, and in laser research.
