Mr Nassab awarded Best International Journal Article at ASAPS 2016

Mr Nassab has been awarded the Best International Journal Article in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal at the annual American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) meeting.  The article entitled ‘The evidence behind noninvasive body contouring devices’ was published in the Gold journal in March 2015. The paper presents the latest evidence for numerous noninvasive body contouring devices including Coolsculpting, Velashape, Thermage, Exilis and Ultrashape.

A blog post about the article was posted here and the full paper can be found at the Aesthetic Surgery Journal website here.  The article concludes that there is very little high-level evidence to support the benefits of a number of these devices.  There is need to for better studies into these devices to support their effectiveness.
