Dr. Prendiville made a presentation on“The Rescue Facelift” with details on how to repair facelifts in patients who need it.
“Having practiced in SW Florida for 17 years, I have had to develop several techniques to repair and strengthen the deeper tissues in revision facelifts, which is beneficial to my patient population,” he said.
