[James Fernau] Hi, I'm Dr. James Fernau, and first and foremost I'm a father of six beautiful children, and I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. A little bit about my upbringing I was born in Wyoming, I went to the University of Wyoming undergraduate, and I graduated summa cum laude and then went to the University of Utah Medical School and graduated at the top of my class. I then went to Columbus Ohio and did one year of general surgery after that, I did a four-year residency in otolaryngology and [heading 00:00:44] at cancer surgery and became board certified in that field.
I received further training and went back to the University of Utah and I became board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery after a two-year residency. I performed a cosmetic surgery fellowship in Virginia Beach, Virginia with Dr. Richard Mladick. I then settled in the Pittsburgh area and I've been practicing here over 21 years. During my 21 years, I have practiced plastic and reconstructive surgery. The second half of my career I have focused on cosmetic surgery primarily. I perform forehead lifts, face lifts, upper and lower eyelid lifts, neck lifts, breast augmentations, breast lifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, liposuction of all areas.
One of thing that separates me from other plastic surgeons is I stay on the cutting edge of plastic surgery, and I acquire much of the high-tech equipment such as the Fraxel Laser, the Erbium Sciton Laser, the Veinwave Laser for small vessels, the Isolaz Laser for acne and Intense Pulsed light Treatment therapy. Recently we have require the NeoGraft hair transplantation unit which performs hair transplantation without any incision.
Another advantage is that I have trained internationally, I have trained with the Dr. Raul Gonzalez and Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, and have perfected the fine art of body contouring including the Brazilian buttock lift, the [Pam Periller Massive Pexier Breast Lift 00:02:49], and most recently the XYZ technique for buttock implants.
I've been very fortunate with my career to become a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, and that is where I was able to meet Dr. Raul Gonzalez and many of my international colleagues and learn their specific techniques which have greatly enhanced the techniques which I have learned in America.
Some of the very specialized techniques which I have perfected include the XYZ Brazilian buttock implant which is place within the muscular [jerve of the Buddhist 00:03:39] muscle giving a near perfect result in every case. The Brazilian buttock fat grafting to enhance the buttock by liposuctioning the abdomen and hip rolls in using this fat in a closed and sterile fashioned to enhance the contour of the abdomen, the hip rolls, and the buttock and in many cases we use that fat to augment the breast.
One of the important concepts of the Gluteal Augmentation is women obtain breast implants frequently and in many cases the buttock has neglected. If you study Greek Mythology and look at many of the statues and sculptures you see a beautiful breast contour and a beautiful buttock contour. In today's society we see that this image is starting to come back, and the very thin female model images starting to fade out. I believe that this is very important to balance the breast with the buttocks, therefore, we see a great emphasis on buttock implantation, which typically is performed in women with very little fat and women with a moderate amount of fat. The fat can be liposuction from the hip rolls and the abdomen place in the buttock without problems ...
