Today, we meet Dr. Remi Foissac, a cosmetic surgeon who shares his vision of the profession with a lot of sincerity and authenticity. He explains in this course interview, his career, his specialties in surgery and aesthetic surgery and medicine and trends in the demands of his patients.
Dr. Foissac, could you tell us about your career and the clinic in which you work?
I realized my medical studies initially in Marseille then in Nice. I did my medical internship at the University Hospital of Nice before becoming a clinical director while doing a research master’s degree. I decided later to move to a liberal clinic Saint George in Nice.
This is one of the most prestigious clinics in Nice where there is a whole building dedicated and optimized for cosmetic surgery. Parking, operating room, hospital unit and consultation office are gathered in the same building. This unity of place is a real plus for the patient allowing him to be confident and to benefit from a staff dedicated to cosmetic surgery in Nice.
What are your specialties in cosmetic surgery?
My specializations are centered first on breast surgery where I performed and passed many master classes to perfect my surgical techniques. I also hold an inter-university diploma of facial surgery allowing a specialization in cervicofacial lifting surgery, eyelids or nose.
I did a Master 2 research in INSERM laboratory “Stem Cells and Differentiation” of the Faculty of Medicine of Nice where I worked a lot on human fatty tissue.
Grease is now predominant in all plastic surgery techniques, these years of research allow me to perfect my techniques and to offer my patients the latest advances in my specialty.
What are the latest techniques in cosmetic surgery / medicine?
At the breast level:
the composite breast augmentation. We associate the installation of a breast implant and reinjection of fat into the breast. The advantage is twofold: we can put an implant of smaller volume and above all we can hide the best implant by increasing the thickness of the cover of the implant and give a result as natural as possible. Indeed, the first request of the patients is to have a natural result and that the breast implant is not visible.
At the level of the face:
the use of Nanograft, realizing a emulsification of fat rich in stem cells makes it possible in particular to treat the ring effectively at any age. In addition, it allows mesotherapy of the entire face and décolleté resulting in an improvement of the complexion, the quality of the skin and the reduction of fine lines.
At the level of buttock surgery:
the liposculpture of the buttocks will allow to carve the buttock (thanks to the use of a liposuction device of the last generation) while the recovered fat will be reinjected into the buttocks to give it curved.
At the level of aesthetic medicine the use of platelet-rich plasma in the therapeutic treatment of alopecia (hair loss).
What are the most popular treatments for your patients?
In cosmetic surgery, it is breast augmentation by breast implants, reinjection of fat in the breasts and buttocks and facial rejuvenation surgery.
Botulinum toxin (“Botox”) is the most common form of aesthetic medicine in combination with the filling of wrinkles by hyaluronic acid fillers.
What are the most popular operations or treatments?
At the surgical level, this involves breast augmentation surgery, eyelid surgery and face lift.
The aesthetic surgery of the abdomen (abdominoplasty) remains very practiced as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss.
The techniques of aesthetic medicine: fillers injections, toxin and peeling are constantly increasing.
What aspects of your work do you like the most?
The diversity of our specialty gives us perspective on each intervention and requires us to improve in each area (surgery of the face, breast, silhouette …)
The constant improvement of the procedures thanks to the scientific research brings a real intellectual interest to the plastic surgery which is in perpetual evolution.
Finally, of course, the contact with the patients: follow a patient, treat him and accompany him to help him eliminate his complexes.
One particular point on which you want to focus on your work?
Cosmetic surgery is the surgery of complex treatment. The important thing when the patient has the desire to perform cosmetic surgery is to choose a surgeon with whom she will have the feeling and who will be able to advise her on her expectations. Do not hesitate to consult to know if the complex is real, if the surgery is the appropriate treatment and if so what are the different treatment options.1 comment
