Plastic Surgeon in Boston Calls Fat Injections 'Treatment of the Future'

Dr. Leonard B. Miller of the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation Highlights Several Distinct Benefits Fat Injections Can Provide for Patients Interested in Facial Rejuvenation

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- "Anyone who is starting to show signs of aging in the face can be considered a candidate for fat injections," writes Boston plastic surgeon Leonard B. Miller, MD in a recent blog post titled, Are Fat Injections Right for Me? "In fact," he continues, "fat injections are probably the best, most effective treatment patients can receive if they are compulsively interested in maintaining a youthful facial aesthetic, as they provide much longer-lasting results than other injectable alternatives."

At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, Dr. Miller's private practice, the Boston plastic surgeon has been using fat injections for over 30 years to address sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, and a variety of other age-related issues that appear on the face. Some of the most common areas in which he administers fat injections include:

  • Cheeks, lips, and chin
  • Area surrounding the eyes
  • Forehead and brow
  • Earlobes
  • Jawline and neck

Fat used for injections is generally harvested from the hips, abdomen, thighs, and/or buttocks, depending on the area of the body with ample accumulation. Once injected into the targeted region, Dr. Miller says fat not only expands and volumizes the skin, but stem cells and other stimulatory growth factors contained within the fat help to restore collagen and skin thickness. He notes the innovative treatment's ability to restore volume and lift to the face is unprecedented.

According to Benefits of Fat Injections -- another recent post on Dr. Miller's website -- fat injections offer patients a number of other distinct advantages in relation to other facial rejuvenation alternatives. Four key benefits highlighted and expanded upon in the post include: the procedure is natural and non-allergenic; fat injections can be performed with relatively minimal discomfort; the results achieved tend to be long-lasting; and the effects of fat injections can often enhance and/or complement other treatments.

To conclude the former of the two blog entries, Dr. Miller professes, "Fat injections really are the treatment of the future."

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @Things...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data.

One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway.

This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
