Cosmetic surgery, over the past decade or so, has come on leaps and bounds. Whether through medical necessity or personal choice, there’s just no denying that the cosmetic surgery industry has changed procedures. The question we have to ask, however, is whether it’s changing for the better, and what it means for the procedures on offer today. Whether you’re looking for the best boob job Turkey has to offer, or a minimally invasive facelift in London, read on to find out how technology has really changed cosmetic surgery.
Micro-surgery is the new norm
For years, surgeons all over the world had been looking for any and every way they could find to improve plastic surgery and avoid any and all scarring where possible. Micro-surgery was that way. Micro-surgical procedures are often done with tiny incisions and even tinier devices that leave minimal or no visible scarring. Endoscopic facelifts are just one example of surgeries that have come out of these advancements. Rather than long, scarring cuts from your temples to behind your ears, smaller incisions are made on your temple and scalp, and an endoscope is used to identify and complete all necessary parts of the facelift! With minimal scarring and even shorter downtime, it’s no wonder that microsurgery has taken off as spectacularly as it has.
Tissue Engineering is better understood
Realistic and effective procedures are no longer a thing of the future. Never before has plastic surgery looked so, well, not plastic. Advancements in tissue engineering have completely revolutionized the industry, making procedures far more successful than ever before. Tissues haven’t always been able to ‘take’ to the new area as successfully as they do now. Implants and tissues can be generated using silicone, and with a better understanding of just how tissues and cells work, grafting isn’t always necessary. But, when it is, we better understand how to make the skin ‘take’.
