ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- A variety of surgical and non-surgical methods designed to reduce the signs of facial aging are available to patients these days. Dr. Thomas Lintner, a plastic surgeon in Atlanta, says when meeting with patients interested in facial rejuvenation, it is important for the patient to comprehensively explain their aesthetic goals. Based on the patient's response, he says he is able to recommend a procedure that will best meet their needs.
In the first installment of a three-part blog series on facial rejuvenation surgery, Dr. Lintner explains that he does not suggest surgical procedures to treat anything the patient has not identified as an area of concern. The post -- titled, "Which Facial Rejuvenation Procedure is Right for Me?" -- does goes on to note that he may occasionally recommend a complementary procedure if he feels it can provide the patient with improved results.
In a follow-up post titled, "Surgical vs. Non Surgical Facial Rejuvenation: Which is Better?," Dr. Lintner explains that some patients may be able to reduce the signs of facial aging without a facelift or other surgical procedure, depending on how well they have taken care of their skin over the years. Although age is typically a factor in deciding if cosmetic injectables or surgery is the better option for facial rejuvenation, he says some older patients with good skin might not necessarily need surgery. Dr. Lintner also mentions that patients who may not be candidates for a facelift due to a medical condition can often still achieve facial rejuvenation with cosmetic injectables as a safer alternative.
Dr. Lintner wrapped up his blog series with a post titled, "What is a Mini Facelift?" In the article, he details another option for facial rejuvenation: a mid-facelift, also known as a mini facelift. He says this option can be beneficial for patients who may only have concerns about signs of aging in the midface, though patients who are unhappy with loose skin along the jawline may find a traditional facelift to be more advantageous.
Ultimately, according to Dr. Lintner, a patient's age, life experience, and personal preferences are what helps to decide what facial rejuvenation technique is most appropriate. He says a patient consultation allows him to assess these factors and create a customized treatment plan, and he urges anyone interested in facial rejuvenation to schedule a consultation with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll sha...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
