Plastic surgery is growing in popularity each year, with more than 18 million procedures performed in the United States alone each year. In terms of aesthetic results, especially on the face, plastic surgery remains the gold standard. Several operations, such as cosmetic skin enhancements, require operating rooms.
For example, removing excess fat or removing excess skin completely is impossible outside of an operating room. We can often remove excess skin with fat grafting or other treatments.
How can plastic surgery help?
Plastic surgery can help you to look younger and more youthful-looking.
A plastic surgeon can tighten the skin on the face and reshape and reconstruct the skin underneath.
With plastic surgery, you can tighten your skin without making any incisions. You can significantly improve the appearance of your face, breasts, and other body parts with fat grafting.
Many cosmetic procedures can only be done with surgery – not via nonsurgical procedures
Cosmetically, fat grafting can sometimes lead to improved skin quality, color, and texture. Patients and plastic surgeons have noticed improvements in skin texture and quality after fat grafting, whether using healthy fat or liquified fat.
Smaller fat grafting procedures typically occur in an office setting, so it is possible to have your procedure done quickly without going to the operating room.
Can nonsurgical treatments help you?
Modern technology can help improve skin quality and make it look younger. Chemical peels, laser treatments, radiofrequency, micro needling, and other nonsurgical methods can accomplish this.
A neck lift is often performed with a facelift because skin rejuvenation is crucial for good results.
Plastic surgeons can enhance skin quality by utilizing neuromodulators like Botox or Dysport. These medications are often given after plastic surgery procedures like facelifts to help patients stay on top of their results.
If wrinkles and crow’s feet begin to reappear after a facial rejuvenation procedure, it can be beneficial to be well protected.
Combining medical and cosmetic treatments can greatly improve the skin’s appearance
Consider the case where manufacturers cannot produce a perfect skin care product. If that is the case, your plastic surgeon may be able to recommend skin care products that will enhance your skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve your skin’s appearance.
As valuable as surgery are prescription-grade medications, which often combine to improve your skin’s quality. A chemical peel and chemical resurfacing are common skin treatments. Microneedling, radiofrequency, and laser therapy are also options for treating acne.
