Many may believe that plastic surgery is a fairly new medical field that emerged sometime in the 20th century. However, physician Gaspare Tagliacozzi is recognized for having written the first plastic surgery textbook in 1895. The first breast augmentation surgery took place during the same year. Over the decades, advances enabled physicians to develop more procedures encompassing virtually every region of the body. Cosmetic procedures continue evolving. This year, we can expect to see more young people considering plastic surgery, especially procedures such as fillers and botox for smoother complexions.
Painless Body Contouring
The phrase body contouring is commonly associated with liposuction or tummy tucks. While both are some of the treatments offered, there are many more that are noninvasive. Therapies may include cellulite-reducing injections, muscle enhancements, skin tightening and fat reduction made possible using heat. Equipment that produces radio-frequency waves makes minimizing cellulite possible. The waves create heat deep beneath the skin’s layers to stimulate collagen and elastin development, which naturally fill the skin for a more youthful appearance. The procedures may be used to tighten and tone virtually any area of the body. Mechanical and hand-held devices are used to treat virtually every region of the body to create amazing results.
Topical and Preventative Botox
Many people have visited dermatologists to receive Botox injections in hopes of eliminating facial creases and wrinkles. Now, the same effects might be achieved using Botox cream. The specially formulated cream applied by a qualified physician relaxes facial muscles, which minimizes wrinkles. Yet, the treatment does not cause bruising or require recovery time, as there are no painful injections to endure.
Botox will also be used as a preventative measure more than ever before. Thanks to the stigma surrounding plastic surgery disappearing, young people are more open to the idea. Selfies and social media are also responsible for encouraging people to look their best.
Breast Implant Elimination
Over the years, saline and silicone implants have been linked to a variety of problems that include implant rupture, illness and cancer. Thus, women are opting to have the prosthetics removed. Smaller, more natural-looking breasts have now become more acceptable and appealing. Plastic surgeons are urging women having implants to regularly examine their breasts and seek medical intervention if noticing unusual growths or lumps.
