When it comes to gaining the most from a surgical facelift –it’s best to face a few home truths before undergoing the procedure. Why? Because there’s value beyond just the ‘lift’, and it begins with a strong knowledge platform and a trusted hand. Not every cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon will excel in all procedures, so ensuring you choose one who specialises in facelifts and is up-to-date with the latest practises, knowledge and expertise, is essential.
The past decade has seen cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures soar – and demand shows no signs of slowing. Remaining on the most popular list is rhinoplasty – the third most sought after procedure globally in 2019 – achieving greater form, structure and rejuvenation, and function for young and old. So, if you, a friend or loved one is considering greater visible nose correctness and restoration – stay in the nose!
When we hear the words ‘breast reconstruction’ the physical side of surgical restoration comes to mind, but for those women who undergo reconstruction, the emotional and mental wellness benefits are said to be the greatest rewards. Since, 2016 there has been a steady increase in the number of women – worldwide – choosing breast reconstruction as part of their breast cancer journey.
Scars are a part of everyone’s life’s journey – be it a childhood injury or skin cancer surgery in later life – how your body heals from surgery is an individual one, and one that requires a skilled hand to ensure best results. If skin cancer surgery is on your radar or that of a loved one, there’s no need to fear the ‘scar’ after-thoughts – scars are a normal concern as these are permanent and can be appearance altering. Fortunately though, there are key factors that can help reduce them.
We all age – but many of us are choosing to age smarter. And, 2021’s cosmetic trajectory includes a ‘preventive’ mindset for many, as more of us reach out to plastic surgery and appearance medicine procedures to keep those lines at bay and cheeks full. Preventive measures are no new phenomenon – nor are they bound to one age group – the earlier you target those wrinkles, the less progression to deeper, fixed lines as you age.
Many of us have cosmetic goals. And, even though the world may be out of kilter, it doesn’t mean a stop on our body wants and needs. Whichever the procedures on your list – abdominoplasty, liposuction, thigh or upper arm lift, labiaplasty, or breast surgery – lift, reduction or implants – winter months are the ideal time to push play on the body board.
