Patents

Patent #5,425,355
The purpose of this patent is to provide a unique laser device that allows minimal invasion to tissue during surgery. Through the use of this instrument, surgery can occur away from the penetration point of the skin, resulting in smaller incisions, shorter recovery and less post-operative discomfort.
Issued 1995
Patent #5,423,804
With the use of the unique laser device mentioned above, this patent reflects the innovative concept of separating tissue for the purpose of operating on an area distant from the site of entry. This tissue parting technique is applicable for aesthetic procedures such as browlifts, facelifts, breast augmentation and abdominoplasties, as well as various reconstructive procedures.
Issued 1995
