How many times have you considered the idea of plastic surgery, but because you were not certain as to what the end result would be pushed the idea out of you mind? While a large number of people do have plastic surgery, there is an even larger number that have considered having some type of cosmetic procedure done, but because they had no way of knowing what the final result might be they quickly changed their minds. This really isn’t that much of a surprise when you consider the plethora of questions that surround a possible candidate for cosmetic surgery. Questions such as; how will I look? Will I look natural? Will people be able to tell that I’ve had anything done? These concerns are very valid and well founded when it comes to the idea of cosmetic surgery, especially given the fact that the only guide a person has had to go by was photos of the after results of other people who have had similar procedures done. While these considerations can present a quandary for a person considering the idea of cosmetic surgery there is no longer any reason to be worried as there is now a solution to the problem.
Dr. William Bruno, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, has found the answer to these concerns for the potential cosmetic surgery candidate. The Vectra 3D Imaging System utilizes special cameras and dynamic soft tissue modeling technology in order to generate an actual 3D model that has been formed after calculating what the realistic outcome to a cosmetic surgical procedure might be. The model is made based upon volume, distance, shape, placement, gravity and precise measurements. While a model of every single possible cosmetic surgical procedure scenario might not be available, the list of what types of models is quiet impressive. The system can offer you a model of the bodily areas such as face, breast and body sculpting.
Models for cosmetic procedures that have been utilized at this point include:
Botox and fillers
Buttock augmentation and lift
Dermabrasion and Chemical peels
Although being able to see a model of what the results can look like is definitely a big asset, this system also gives you the option of exploring what various sizes of implants would look like as well.
Valentine’s Day is the day where people are reminded that it is important to show others how much they are loved. It has been promoted as primarily a holiday for couples and their are many gifts that couples exchange on this wonderful day. Some people stick with traditional gifts such as flowers, chocolate, and jewelry. But some are unique and they opt for things like cosmetic treatment packages. So, it is really possible to buy a sweetheart a set of dimples to enhance their smile.
Giving cosmetic treatment packages is actually becoming popular, with more and more people giving these gifts each year. The improvement in societies attitude toward cosmetic procedures is directly responsible for this. Society no longer looks down on a person for getting a procedure done to look better. The word vain is no longer associated with cosmetic procedures because most people really would like to look prettier then they are. Instead of feeling guilty about plastic surgery people are excited about it. Gitika Chopa, 28, a Delhi-based banker, was practically glowing when she found out about the gift her boyfriend planned to give her for Valentine’s Day. She told the India Gazette, “My boyfriend is gifting me a package that includes Botox and other therapies to help me get rid of wrinkles and other marks on my face. This is the most exciting gift that I have ever got because it will give me a new lease on life.”
The rush that surgeons are seeing near Valentines Day is not surprising to Manoj Kumar J. Manwani, cosmetic surgeon at Criticare Hospital in Mumbai. He told the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) over the phone, “This is a common thing. Every year we see an increase in the number of people going in for cosmetic procedures around Valentine’s Day because everyone wants to look good….We see more than 20 percent increase in women going in for cosmetic procedures around Valentine’s Day.”
Dr. Manwani also said, “Most common procedures are nose jobs and chin augmentation but one treatment that is really getting prominence nowadays is dimple creation. Not only girls, even boys are increasingly going in for dimple creation.” Dimples are created by making a shallow cavity inside the mouth. This cavity will cause the cheek to sink in at that point creating a dimple. The procedure takes only 30 minutes and requires a local anesthetic. For most people regular activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure.
Dimples enhance a person’s smile making them look cuter and younger. People who have always admired dimples on others can now admire them on themselves.
Anup Dhir is a senior cosmetic surgeon at New Delhi’s Apollo Hospital and his opinion is that fat grafting is becoming the ‘biggest thing in plastic surgery.’ He told the Times of India that the procedure is already popular but the first half of the 21st century should see this popularity sky-rocket.
The fat grafting process is a procedure in which fat cells are removed form one part of the body and placed in another part. Many people find that there is too much fat in some areas and not enough fat in others. Fat grafting will allow those people to transfer the fat and thus, have a body more suitable to their preferences. This procedure has been used successfully in facial modifications such as filling wrinkles, chin augmentation, and cheek implants. Recently, it has also been applied in buttock augmentation.
Use of this technique is growing in popularity in conjunction with breast augmentation. Women have reported that using fat grafting instead of silicon implants gives a different feel to the breasts. The are more smooth and natural to the touch and they look more streamlined. The genuine look of the breast is much enhanced with this alternative to silicon implants. These observations have been reported by a Mumbai-based cosmetic surgeon named Meenakshi Agarwal.
In fat grafting the fat is removed with a syringe that has a large bore needle or with a liposuction cannula. It is processed to remove impurities that may cause infection and then injected into the desired area of the body. The fat can also be cut from the area in strips and then placed in the desired area. Regardless of the
method used the effect is a natural look, and since the fat is not foreign to the body the possibility of rejection of the tissue does not exist.
If a person is looking for a shift in the fat distribution of their bodies then this procedure is the way to go. Many have already found this out and it is expected that many more will benefit from fat grafting in the near future.
