Dr. Grady Core of Core Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, Alabama is one of the pioneers of endoscopic cosmetic surgery and has been performing many cosmetic surgical procedures with an endoscope since the early 1990s.
Dr. Core was a co-developer of the endoscopic technique in 1991 and has developed applications in the face, breast, and abdomen since that time. He has taught endoscopic surgery to plastic surgeons all over the world and has been an invited speaker to Australia, South American, and Europe.
The endoscope works by fitting a tubular probe equipped with a camera and light into a small incision. Then the viewing screen, which magnifies your body’s internal components, transmits the images for Dr. Core to watch during surgery.
We believe that endoscopic surgery helps to reduce bleeding, swelling and bruising in addition to reducing the risk of nerve damage. It also allows patients to go home the same day of surgery.
Research is ongoing for the use of endoscopes in plastic surgical procedures. Known risks include additional scarring, nerve damage, blood vessel damage, skin injury, infection and fluid accumulation beneath your skin.
