Does Social Media Play a Role in Plastic Surgery Trends?

Social Media & Plastic Surgery

Each year, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reviews the surgical procedures that took place the year before. Per their latest report, 2017 was one of the busiest years for plastic surgeons to date. In fact, these experts believe that 2018 will be even busier, and they claim social media is driving demand for several popular procedures.

The Stand-Out Trends for 2017

The 2017 report showed that the average number of non-invasive procedures performed across the country has increased by some 25% since 2012, representing a huge increase in demand. What’s more, the millennial generation has embraced injectables – particularly dermal fillers and Botox – to the point that 80% of all the treatments performed in 2017 were cosmetic and non-surgical in nature. What is driving this dramatic increase in the number of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures? Per Patrick Byrne, the director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and an AAFPRS board member, it’s all about the selfie culture.

Voice Feminization

Voice feminization is an integral step in the journey undergone by transgender individuals seeking gender confirmation. But what is voice feminization exactly, and why is it so important?

What It is

Is the Traditional Facelift Changing?

Traditional Facelift Changing

A facelift is a common plastic surgery procedure which is medically known as rhytidectomy. It is one of the oldest forms of plastic surgery according to historical records. The invention of the facelift can be dated back to somewhere between 1901 and 1907.

Facelift History

Way back in the early 1900’s, the procedure we know today was obviously quite different. For starters, the results were mediocre at best, and the surgery came at a very steep price. There were a lot of complications, with the most common occurring due to infections from nonsterile practices and shoddy anesthesia methods.

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure which allows the face to become firmer and more youthful in appearance. It aids in diminishing wrinkles and improving problem areas like sagging skin on the neck. The important thing to remember is that this is a surgical procedure, and as such it can require up to two weeks recovery time for some patients before they are ready to resume their daily activities.

The results of a facelift are permanent, although the effects of aging will begin to show again after an extended period. By taking loving care of your body and face after the surgery, you can extend the life of your facelift results for over a decade.

How Facelifts Have Changed

Once upon a time, when someone visited a plastic surgeon for a facelift, the procedure was quite simple. Surgeons simply placed patients under anesthesia, tightened and repositioned the skin on the face, and then removed the remnants. Though it did remove lines, wrinkles, and sagging, it was notorious for creating a “stiff” appearance. Fortunately, times have changed, and surgeons now use a multi-faceted approach to perform facelift procedures.

Facelifts vs. Botox: Getting the Results You Want

Botox vs Facelift

These days, when it comes to creating a more youthful appearance, there are non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and surgical options available to you. Two of the most popular methods for creating a younger-looking face are Botox injections and facelifts. While both of these options can provide dramatic results, there are some significant differences that may influence your decision.

Understanding the Facelift

Facelifts are surgical procedures, but there are some minimally-invasive endoscopic options available. Patients who want dramatic changes and long-lasting results often opt for facelift procedures because they can last for decades and offer far more visible results than other options. However, there are risks, particularly when it comes to anesthesia. Recovery times vary from patient-to-patient, and many are off work for two weeks or more. Finally, facelifts will result in some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but surgeons do their best to manage this with anti-inflammatories and painkillers.
