Learn about the Top 5 Latest Trends in Cosmetic Surgery!
Bro-tox - Because why should girls have all the fun?
The Man-Bun was first, but Botox was short to follow. Let’s face it though, no one want to look older; we all want to age gracefully no matter what gender we are or identify as. The number one biggest trend, without a doubt has to go to men coming in for botox. Botox is a tiny toxin that paralyzes the muscles that form wrinkles. Middle-age and older men can treat the wrinkles they already have, while younger men are coming in to prevent their wrinkles from ever forming. At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, only trained cosmetic surgeons perform your injections - no nurse injectors.
2. I like Big Butts and I cannot lie - Brazilian Butt Lifts
A Brazilian Butt Lift is essentially rearranging your own inventory. Liposuction is performed where there is excess fat (also known as adipose tissue) and then transferred to the buttocks. The most common area that fat is taken from is the abdomen and love handles. The buttocks is typically overfilled to be bigger than desired as we know that approximately one-third to one-half of the transferred cells will die. However, for the cells that live, they should last.
3. The Gummy Bear
The Gummy Bear is the latest and greatest breast implant, and in my opinion, is the implant of the future. It is a highly cohesive gel and has the least amount of rippling, the lowest rate of scar tissue formation, and the best upper chest fullness for cleavage. It is called a "gummy bear" because if you were to cut it in half, it acts like a gummy bear and maintains it shape without the gel spilling everywhere. During a consultation, patients are able to feel each style of implant (the gummy, regular silicone, and saline) to help decide which implant is the right one for them.
4. Medical Lip Plumper - plump your lips without the needles
At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, we offer surgical and non-surgical options for creating fuller lips. The most common is injecting either Juvederm or Restalyne filler into the lips. Both of these products are made of hyaluronic acid and can last between 6-12 months depending on the product. The latest trend has been to avoid the needle all together and create a topical hyaluronic acid in a 2-step gloss delivering system called HA5 Lip System. A very mild tingle is felt when applied, and while an immediate hydration is seen, over time the body absorbs the ingredients and fuller lips are created. For those wanting a permanent solution, we also offer Silikon 1000 which is a medical grade silicone injected in micro-droplets. The silicone itself acts like a filler but it is also an irritant, stimulating your own body to create natural collagen slowly enlarging you lips in the most natural way. As the body responds slowly, and I never want my patients to appear unnatural or overdone, the process is spread out over 3-4 treatments - slowly “growing” your own lips to your desired shape and size.
5. The Photo Facial is not just for the face!
IPL or Intense Pulse Light has been around for years in treating pigment and brightening the face and is often referred to as a photo facial. One of the secret gems is that this device can be used other places as well and I highly recommend using it on the neck and chest. Many women have made a concerted effort to protect their faces from sun damage, but to me one of the biggest tells is looking a person’s neck and chest. Try using IPL to brighten and rejuvenate the neck and chest.
