Cosmetic Surgery Techniques : Which One Suits You

Post by ANJANI TETLI on Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:50 am

Cosmetic surgery has increased dramatically in popularity over the
past 10 years. Attitudes have changed as well -- more and more people
are turning to cosmetic surgery. It has undergone significant
technological and conceptual changes in recent years. The conceptual
changes have altered approaches to facial aging, including approaches
to the forehead, eyelids, and lower face. Technological changes include
the increasing use of the laser for facial cosmetic surgery and
minimally invasive techniques for face, breast, and body-contouring

Successful cosmetic surgery won't make a
dramatic change in your looks . The old time face lift that rendered
women flat faced and void of expression is, thankfully, almost
obsolete. If it looks like cosmetic surgery, it's bad cosmetic
surgery-period . The new techniques yield a subtle result:
ideally,people won't be able to quite figure our what's different about
you. They 'All say you look rested or ask if you've changed your
makeup.If you are thinking about more than one procedure, it makes
sense to have both recovery time. Besides,when you've been through it
once, you might not have the nerve to go back.


with high cheekbones age well, because the cheekbone helps to anchor
the skin that would otherwise sag and fold around the middle of the
face. For this reason, and because of the influence of glamorous
celebrity role models with good bone structure- Faye Dunaways, Anjelica
Huston, Keith Carradine, Arsenio Hall-cheeks implants are gaining in
popularity. The implants them self are made of hard rubber or plastic
that resembles a dental retainer without the wire . They are inserted
through an incision inside your mouth or through a cut make a round
face more angular and widen a long, narrow face into an oval.

to be well reset and in the best possible health before the surgery .
Avoid asprin and vitamin E for three to four weeks before surgery.
Asprin thins the blood and can cause bleeding after surgery; Vitamin E
interferes with clotting and can also cause bleeding.

Healing. Up to 10 days with residual sensitive lasting up to eight weeks.
The swelling and bruising last 7 to 10 days, and the area around the
implant remains sensitive for six to eight weeks. If your face is
asymmetrical going into surgery, you'll come out with high
cheekbones-but they'll still be asymmetrical.


In the infancy of this procedure, living bone or cartiage was grafted
over the chin to build up a weak or receding chin. Now that the
technique has grown more sophisticated,doctors use the same rubber or
plastic used in cheek implants. The chin implant is inserted through an
incision in the skin under the chin or through a cut inside the lower
lip. The latter. obviously, doesn't leave a scar, but some doctors
believe there's a greater risk of infection that way.
Preparation.Try to be well reset and in the
best possible health before the surgery . Avoid asprin and vitamin E
for three to four weeks before surgery. Asprin thins the blood and can
cause bleeding after surgery; Vitamin E interferes with clotting and
can also cause bleeding.

Healing. Up to 10 days , with residual sensitive lasting up to eight weeks.
Sometimes the implants shifts as it heals and appear crooked.
Occasionally, implants can erode the bone of the chin, and you'll end
up worse off than when you started, with a receding chin and damage to
your own bone.

What is minimally invasive surgery?

For many surgical procedures, the emphasis has shifted from traditional
open surgery to the use of less invasive means. Minimally invasive
surgery is done with the aid of a viewing scope and specially designed
surgical instruments. The scope allows the surgeon to perform major
surgery through several tiny openings without making a large incision.
These minimally invasive alternatives usually result in less pain,
scarring, and recovery time for the patient, as well as reduced
healthcare costs. Almost everything from open-heart operations to
vasectomies are now done with minimally invasive methods.

What is minimally invasive plastic surgery?

Surgeons are discovering more uses for minimally invasive techniques,
including heart surgery, hysterectomies, and prostate cancer treatment.
In plastic surgery, the term minimally invasive refers to the use of
newer technologies to perform procedures that once required extensive
surgery and recovery time. Today's plastic surgeons have a variety of
tools and techniques available that make procedures such as face lifts
and eye lifts more accessible and affordable.

Laser surgery

can now quickly remove the outer layer of the skin. They tighten the
skin, which leads to smoothening and clearing of brown spots and large
pores. Lasers also can improve wrinkles, fine lines, forehead creasing,
and crow's feet.

Laser skin resurfacing/facelift

Laser surgery can be used for skin resurfacing similar to the way
chemical peeling and dermabrasion have been used in the past. When used
for skin resurfacing, the result is equivalent to an intermediate depth
chemical peel with less risk of complications. It is a particularly
good technique in the eyelid, crow's feet, and forehead region. It also
is quite effective in the cheek area. When the lines around the mouth
are particularly deep, the laser peel may require a second treatment.

Eye lift surgery

lifts are among the most commonly requested procedures by both men and
women. Drooping of the eyelids can make a person look tired and/or
Lower eyelid bagging usually is the result of protrusion
of the fat that naturally cushions the eye. This fat is held in place
by a membrane that weakens as we age, allowing the fat to become
visible as a "bag." Lower eyelid bags can be corrected in most cases
without any external incisions or visible scars by using the laser.
The skin folds of the upper eyelid tend to increase and droop with age.
This problem also can be corrected with a laser-assisted upper eyelid
lift. Laser eye lift surgery involves little bleeding and bruising, and
usually requires a short recovery period.

"Lunchtime" procedures

plastic surgeons also provide options for correcting certain signs of
aging, such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, in
small steps, without surgery. Because these procedures are done over a
period of short office visits, these mini-treatments are sometimes
referred to as "lunchtime" procedures.
