Davis B. Nguyen, MD to Reveal Results of FDA Clinical Trials With Fibrin Glue to The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons

"An Advancement in Plastic Surgery That Really Sticks," Says Dr. Nguyen

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - September 14, 2010) -  Plastic Surgeon Davis B. Nguyen, MD is pleased to announce that he will be speaking at The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery conference in San Francisco on September 18, 2010. ISAPS members are nationally certified plastic surgeons in 91 countries who are dedicated to educating members in the latest procedures. Only one of two speakers chosen to address the international audience of his peers, Dr. Nguyen will be revealing his findings from the FDA clinical trials he recently completed examining the effects of Fibrin Glue in facelifts.

Dr. Nguyen, one of seven renowned plastic surgeons who conducted the Phase 3 Clinical Trials (efficacy testing) says of his findings, "Every now and then, an innovation in plastic surgery comes along that sticks. The recently completed clinical trials confirm that Fibrin Glue is a groundbreaking product that makes facelift surgery much more comfortable for patients." Fibrin Glue is applied internally before the external skin is closed and stitched.

The clinical trials tracked 75 patients who received Fibrin Glue on half their face. The other side of the lift was closed in the traditional manner. The results showed the side sealed by Fibrin Glue swelled and bruised dramatically less. "Recovery is faster and more comfortable because drains, normally left in the face for 48 hours after surgery, are eliminated. Patients heal nearly twice as fast," states Dr. Nguyen. Overall, patients experienced substantially less discomfort.

The innovative plastic surgeon is also one of the pioneers in using the miracle glue in browlift procedures. "The results are remarkable," notes Dr. Nguyen. "A major benefit of using Fibrin Glue in the browlift is that the traditional 'raccoon eyes' resulting from bruising and swelling, are eliminated. This allows patients to get back to work and a normal life much more quickly." 

Dr. Nguyen has been in the forefront of research on the benefits of Fibrin Glue as he published an independent study on the subject in 2007 with his mentor, renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Kamer of the famed Lasky Clinic. The study was so well received, it helped to propel the recently concluded FDA clinical trials, which validate the previous findings of Drs. Nguyen and Kamer. 

Dr. Nguyen is dedicated to providing his patients with maximum comfort and aesthetic beauty. "The use of Fibrin Glue has had a major impact on my practice. My patients benefit from shorter recovery periods, fewer complications and greater post-operative comfort," states Dr. Nguyen.

Dr. Nguyen is dual Board Certified in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. For more information about Davis B. Nguyen, MD, please visit www.drdavisnguyen.com or call 310-550-0288. Dr. Nguyen is located at 9735 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 216, Beverly Hills, CA 90212
