San Antonio, TX (February 28, 2011 : Dr. Suresh Koneru is pleased to be the first in San Antonio to offer a new brow lift, face lift and neck lift procedure Ultherapy. This non-invasive technology uses the imaging and capabilities of medical ultrasound to lift and tighten sagging facial and neck skin without surgery. Just as ultrasound is used to image internal organs and babies, it can now be used to image the layers of skin, fat, and muscle in the face and neck. Dr. Koneru can then focus the ultrasound energy on the appropriate layers to get a lift of the skin and muscle without any incisions.
As people age, their skin loses its natural elasticity causing the brow line to fall thus making the eyes look smaller. The skin of the cheeks and neck begins to sag causing jowls and deep creases. While the well-known techniques of Botox, fillers and laser therapy still do a great job of making the surface of the skin look smoother and more youthful, surgery has been the only effective option to tighten tissues for brow lifts, face lifts and neck lifts.
This ultrasound technique creates a whole new opportunity to get firmer, younger looking skin for patients who do not want to have a surgical lift, said Dr. Koneru. With the Ulthera® system, my patients now have an option to make a real difference in their looks and self confidence without the risks and downtime associated with traditional surgical procedures.
One of the added benefits from this 30-60 minute procedure is the creation of new collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin a firmer, healthier appearance. With only one Ultherapy treatment, patients will see noticeable results in the skins appearance. No significant preparation is needed for this non-invasive plastic surgery procedure and no downtime or recovery time is required. The Ulthera system is the first energy-based device cleared by the FDA with an indication for lift.
Dr. Suresh Koneru treats patients in San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, Laredo and other cities in Central and South Texas. He offers non-invasive plastic surgery and conventional surgical procedures for brow lifts, face lifts and neck lifts, as well as other cosmetic procedures. With his background in Electrical Engineering, Dr. Koneru is uniquely qualified to pioneer the use of this technology in San Antonio and South Texas.
