We have been working with our bank and builder to get the new location on Cowart Street going. And, our delay has been the comparable real estate appraisals in downtown Chattanooga. So, while we wait for the market to turn around, we are negotiating for temporary space in beautiful, historic Main Street. We believe in the revitalization of Main Street, and we hope to open shortly after the New Year. Watch for our progress. We’ll keep you posted, so you can join in our excitement.
Vince Gardner, MD, our first Cosmetic Surgery training fellow, has adjusted well to the fast-paced program at Southern Surgical Arts. He continues to research the data and presentation of Dr. Nease’s Laser Face Lift Study which was a clinical study for facial rejuvenation and advanced face lifting techniques using two lasers in combination. This technique is cutting edge technology with the goal of minimizing downtime and scarring while achieving naturally youthful results. Drs. Nease and Gardner will present their findings at the 27th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona this January. Initial patient experience to the study has been positive and Dr. Nease has been pleased with the results. Statistical analysis is pending.
We’ll update you on both the new Chattanooga location and the results of the Laser Face Lift study very soon! ~ Pam
