Fort Myers Physician Secures Trademark, Expands Services
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued Fort Myers Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Douglas M. Stevens, MD, a trademark for his unique in-office facelift procedure, Active Lift™.
Not a weekend or “mini” facelift, Active Lift™ is a full face and neck lift. What makes it unique is where it is performed – entirely in the office under local anesthesia. While many plastic surgeons perform 20-40 facelifts per year, Dr. Stevens has performed as many as 300 in a single year. His experience allows him to perform the procedure under local anesthesia, eliminating the need for an offsite surgery center and extra expenses, which many patients prefer.
With advanced technology such as endoscopes and fractional CO2 laser resurfacing available in the office, Dr. Stevens is able to rejuvenate the brow, facial skin, and eyelids as well as the face and neck, for a complete makeover, all within the office setting. It was this unique offering that allowed the U.S. Trademark Office to provide the trademark for Active Lift™.
