Medical techniques and technology are evolving at a rapid pace. Every day new and exciting breakthroughs are being made, each one more exciting than the last. No field benefits more from this rapid growth than the field of cosmetic surgery.
Everyone wants to look their best and plastic surgery can help people to clear any aesthetic hurdles they have faced in the past. When done well, cosmetic procedures can boost self-esteem and increase confidence. True to the nature of this blog, we would like to take a time and look at some of the most significant recent breakthroughs and procedures in the cosmetic surgery field in what is on the horizon:
- NON-SURGICAL LIPOSUCTION: Getting rid of fat deposits can be tricky even with a great diet and exercise regime. For many people liposuction is a great option to help get them to their body aesthetic goal but many cannot afford to be out of commission for a lengthy recovery process. Non-surgical liposuction is a huge breakthrough. Using ultrasound technology, light energy, or radio frequency energy, fat deposits can be removed with very little (if any) recovery time.
- A NEW BOTOX ALTERNATIVE: Not every person responds to every treatment in the same manner, and that applies to facial treatments as well. With this in mind, the more options available to patients beyond Botox® and Dysport (the leading competition to Botox®) the better. Enter Xeomin, a new alternative to provide plastic surgeons with one more option for your facial rejuvenation treatment.
- TOTAL EYE REJUVENATION: This is a multi-step process rolled into one! Rather than targeting individual spots around the eyes, the total eye rejuvenation targets both the top and bottom eyelids by removing excess fat and tightening skin as well as incorporating facial injections such as Botox® to relax muscles and remove wrinkles. This new approach to facial rejuvenation is one of the most exciting developments of the year for plastic surgeons.
- 3D IMAGING and TOUCH SCREEN TECHNOLOGY: Bringing 3D technology to the plastic surgeon’s office is a huge benefit to not only the surgeon but the patient as well. By being able to better visualize the post-treatment results patients are better able to set reasonable expectations. Also, looking at 3D photos allows the patient and doctor to better communicate about what they want the final results to look like since they can see and experiment with their plan of action. 3D technology is an exciting step forward for the cosmetic surgery field.
More state of the art breakthroughs occur every day. Looking ahead to the future, there are many more exciting things on the horizon.
So many things that seemed science fiction at one point are now science fact. As always, the best way to get the most current information on what is happening in the cosmetic surgery field is to contact a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Pinsky. They remain current in regard to all the top medical trends and utilize the proven and best techniques available for their patients.
