KANSAS CITY, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- According to the most recent statistics published by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, over 10 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2012; a 3% increase from the previous year. With an interest in cosmetic enhancement still trending upward, Kansas City facial plastic surgeons J. David Kriet, MD and Clinton D. Humphrey, MD perform facelift surgery as one of the most popular procedures at University of Kansas Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
In a recent blog post on their website titled, "Is Facelift Surgery Right for Me?", Dr. Kriet discusses typical candidates for facelift surgery, as well as his approach to establishing expectations. According to the post, the following are some commonalities shared by his average facelift patients:
- Stable weight
- Between 48 and 75 years of age
- Presence of facial skin laxity
- Appearance of stubborn fatty deposits around the face and neck
The Kansas City facial plastic surgeon says many of his patients begin considering facial rejuvenation in their mid-40's but typically only pursue non-surgical treatment options like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers at that time. However, once those same patients reach their late 40's to early 50's, he notes that they often transition into considering surgical options such as the facelift. Furthermore, he adds that many patients opt to maximize the results of their facelift by combining both surgical and non-surgical procedures.
When asked about his approach to helping patients determine realistic goals and expectations for their facelift surgery, Dr. Kriet answers:
"During the initial consultation, a conversation regarding goals and expectations takes place. In most cases, we come to a mutual agreement with the patient on the treatment plan at this initial visit. We will then often have one or two additional consultations to confirm expectations and answer any questions the patient may have. Our goal is for every patient to feel like their needs have been met with our care."
Dr. Kriet also states, "Every patient is unique, and the facelift is modified accordingly for skin thickness, the presence of neck bands, fat accumulations, hairline position, chin position, and jawline." Ultimately, he urges anyone interested in the procedure to seek a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in order to help ensure the utmost degrees of safety and efficacy are achieved.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction.

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
