Other 2016 plastic surgery trends | Health & Fitness |

Article in English proposed by ICME According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), one of the biggest trends right now is that patients are using their own fat for body shaping.  "One trend we are seeing with fat involves an increase in fat grafting procedures. Plastic surgeons harvest a patient's unwanted fat from their abdomen using liposuction and then inject it to lift and rejuvenate other areas such as the face, buttock and even the breast," said ASPS President Debra Johnson, MD. "Because the material injected is the patient's own fat the results typically last longer than fillers.

The Future is Now: Sci-fi Advancements in Plastic Surgery

Article in English proposed by ICME Plastic surgery has been used in the field of healthcare for health related issues, since the ancient times, using skin grafts. It was not until the nineteenth century that plastic surgery was actually used for cosmetic purposes. Since then, the popularity of plastic surgery has seen its fair share of dips and rises as new technology filled the gaps for skill and talent. This article describes three advances in science and technology that have increased the popularity of plastic surgery by reducing unwanted aftermath and increasing the probability of customer satisfaction.

Nipple cosmetic surgery: The search for the ‘perfect’ nipple

Article in English proposed by ICME LET’S talk about nipples. You may not realise it, but they’re actually having a bit of a “moment”. While the majority of us won’t have spent much time pondering them, these days according to cosmetic surgeons, nipples are big … big business, that is. It all started at the end of last year when leading names in the US plastic surgery industry hedged their bets and released a forecast of nip and tuck trends for 2017. Surprisingly, the hitherto ignored nipples topped the list. And in contrast to breasts, bigger is not in fact better when it comes to our nips.

Women are going to extreme lengths to get rid of arm flab | New York Post

Article in English proposed by ICME Last summer, when Kim Campbell put on her first sleeveless dress of the season, she noticed sagging and dimpling on her upper arms. “I tried firming creams, spent a lot of money and saw no results,’’ says the 52-year-old Astoria resident, who works in optical sales. “I knew surgery left scars and I didn’t think anything else could be done, so I started wearing cardigans over everything.’’

Getting Fake Dimples Is The New Plastic Surgery Trend Among Millennials

Article in English proposed by ICME There's virtually no part left in our bodies that plastic surgeons haven't meddled with. From the already common breast implants to butt augmentation, thinner lips, double eyelids and reduction of labia, it seems like everything is possible. And now, a new trend is pushing the limits even further – dimpleplasty is a dimple creation procedure that adds little indentions in clients' cheeks. According to reports, the surgery has been on a rise among millennial-aged patients.

Social Media and Plastic Surgery - News - DailyBeauty - The Beauty Authority - NewBeauty

Article in English proposed by ICME There’s a new type of patient coming into the offices of Dover, OH, facial plastic surgeon David Hartman, MD—one that he describes as a “more informed client.” The source of their newfound education? A rather unlikely medium. “Social media’s impact on our first-time visitors is giving way to the arrival of a more educated client,” he says. “The light of understanding in the eyes of first-timers is much more evident today, because nearly all of them have already seen videos, studied before-and-after photos, and read reviews before I ever meet them. I love this.” While Dr. Hartman says he believes it is still important to cover the basics in the discussions of procedure options, he thinks the "pre-informed" clients are far more capable of asking personalized and relevant questions—mainly because they have already been contemplating details of a prospective procedure and been imagining themselves trying it out. Plus, there’s a pretty solid personal connection.

The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures According to New Data | Observer

Article in English proposed by ICME In recent years, the stigma surrounding plastic surgery has all but disappeared; what was once a dirty little secret is now a social media phenomenon. Millennials are flocking to plastic surgeons for noninvasive procedures in an effort to look like Instagram filters IRL, especially as celebrities speak out about “chin tweaks” and doctors document the results on Snapchat. The popularity of these techniques can no longer be ignored—The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons highlighted data on these procedures and found people in the United States received more treatments than any other country, with 4.2 million procedures.

Assessment of the Efficacy of Cryolipolysis on Saddlebags:... : Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Article in English proposed by ICME Background: Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive subcutaneous fat removal technique. Its efficacy has been demonstrated on various fatty areas but not yet on saddlebags. The main objective of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy, patient tolerance, and safety of cryolipolysis on the saddlebags. Methods: This prospective study enrolled 53 patients with saddlebags. Patients with a history of liposuction or other surgical procedure on the saddlebag area and those on diet pills were excluded. The primary endpoint was a decrease in fat thickness at 3 and 6 months, as assessed by thigh circumference measurement and by ultrasound evaluation of subcutaneous fat. Pain associated with cryolipolysis was assessed using a visual analogue scale. Body mass index at the different time points and adverse events were recorded. All patients completed a satisfaction questionnaire at the end of the study. Results: At 6 months, there was a mean decrease of 5.63 cm in thigh circumference; the mean decrease in fat layer thickness measured by ultrasound was 1.31 cm. The satisfaction questionnaire showed that 93.75 percent of patients were satisfied with the results. The mean visual analogue scale score was 1.66 of 10 after the session. Reversible skin changes such as postprocedure postinflammatory hyperpigmentation were observed in 8.33 percent of patients.

The Ideal Buttock Size: A Sociodemographic Morphometric Eva... : Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Article in English proposed by ICME Background: Perception of beauty is influenced by geographic, ethnic, cultural, and demographic factors. However, objective measurements remain the foundation for aesthetic evaluations. In the quest to better define the “ideal” female buttock, this study assumes interdependence among variables such as country of residence, sex, age, occupation, and aesthetic perception, yielding a waist-to-hip ratio that appears most pleasing across most cultures and geographic locations. Methods: An online survey was designed. Modifiable ranges of buttock sizes were achieved by means of digital alteration, enabling participants to interactively change the size and waist-to-hip ratio of a single model’s buttocks. The questionnaire was translated into multiple languages and sent to more than 9000 plastic surgeons and to the general public worldwide. Demographic data were collected, and analysis of variance was used to elucidate buttock shape preferences.

Surgical Outcomes and Global Warming - General Surgery News

Article in English proposed by ICME Scientists around the world have used hard data to conclude that climate change due to the increase of “greenhouse” gases is real. Despite those who are skeptical or uninformed and eschew global warming as being a “hoax,” the evidence for this phenomenon is evident and pervasive. From the receding topography of the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska, to the increasing salt levels and rising tides wiping out fauna and flora in the Florida everglades, to the loss of approximately 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005 in Antarctica, we are reminded that no creature—human or otherwise—will be spared the unwanted consequences of this geothermic occurrence. Naturally, surgical consequences may derive from these events.
