Advances in Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is one of the most advanced surgeries in the field of medicine. People with accidental abnormalities as well as people who are dissatisfied with their current personalities prefer to have a plastic surgery, not only to improve their appearance but all facets of their personal and professional lives as well. Plastic surgery does wonders to personalities of individuals whether it is through liposuction, facelift, facial implants, skin resurfacing, tummy tuck, or any other procedure.

The first most important thing to consider while planning a plastic surgery is the surgeon itself. A number of surgeons claim to be the best. However, thanks to advances in the field of Plastic surgery, one can now authenticate the credentials of every doctor. Surgeons, such as Dr.Fisher, who are certified by the American Board of Plastic surgery are the ones to go for. Additionally, you may want to check the surgeon’s past record on the Board site, his or her previous derelictions and actions against them. Unlike some less reputable sites, which require no authentication and people can post on them anonymously (e.g. Yelp), the Medical Board site will always tell you the truth about the surgeon and his or her record.



Over the years, there have been many advances in this field. The technology is becoming more and more sophisticated with the passage of time. New techniques have been introduced, which have helped achieve better results and shorten recovery time.

One of the latest techniques, is the ultrasound assisted lipoplasty, applicable pre, during or after liposuction. This technique accompanied with the tumescent technique, and super-wet technique has changed the way things have been done in liposuction. Now surgeons can gain precise results in little time.

Another advancement in this field is the transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which is a technique used in eye-lid surgery. As opposed to traditional surgery, this kind of surgery is used with minimal incision. A very tiny incision is made in the lower eyelid. Fine forceps are used to remove the fats and dissolvable sutures are used to close the incision. This way, perfect eye shape is obtained with minimal incision and scarring.

Whatever, procedure you plan to undergo, you need to understand that plastic surgery is a very complex field. Gain a level of satisfaction by communicating your concerns and expectations with your doctor, have basic knowledge and understanding of the surgical procedure and the technology being used, and do not be afraid to ask sensible questions. Read all materials presented to you and pay the down payment only after you make the decision to undergo a specific procedure.

However, also prepare yourself for the unexpected. Things can go wrong in any surgery, and complications may occur. Plastic surgery is medicine-science wedded with art. You need a good surgeon who is also a great artist. Therefore, learn about the complexity of your desired physician, weigh the benefits over the risks, and then go for it.
