The demand for facial plastic surgical procedures has increased steadily over the past decade.1 As this demand has grown, so have media exposure and public acceptance of cosmetic surgery. An increasing emphasis has also been placed on less invasive techniques for all types of surgical procedures, including cosmetic procedures. This trend toward minimally invasive procedures coupled with the potential market for plastic surgery has resulted in a plethora of devices and products that claim to provide results similar to those of “traditional” procedures, with minimal downtime and, in some cases, minimal cost.
