Plastic Surgery Trends for 2012
It’s hard to believe that the year is coming to a close, and soon 2012 will soon be here. At Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we’re excited about the latest innovations that are enabling both men and women to look their absolute best. With that in mind, we thought we’d share a few of the hottest cosmetic surgery trends that are gaining momentum now and will most certainly be in demand throughout 2012.
Imagine a noninvasive procedure that literally reduces fat layers in your biggest problem areas. Does this sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not! CoolSculpting is a new U.S. FDA approved technology that cools unwanted fat cells to reduce bulges – all without surgery! With no down time and no pain, it’s as fast and effective ways to get rid of unsightly bumps and bulges.
Full, luscious lips never seem to go out of style, and in 2012, the trend will continue. While there are many effective temporary fixes for plumping your pout, a growing number of patients are asking for a more permanent solution. Now, there’s PermaLip– a permanent lip enhancement that’s both affordable and completely natural looking. The PermaLip implant is a soft, solid silicone implant with a smooth surface that can’t be deflated or ruptured. The procedure is quick and simple. In less than 15 minutes, you can have the lips you always wanted, and you’ll never have to spend money on temporary injectables again!
VASER Hi-Def Liposculpture
This procedure is truly the convergence of technology, science, and art. Unlike traditional liposuction that is primarily used for reducing volume in overweight patients. VASER Hi-Def is designed specifically for patients who are in shape but who aren’t seeing the sleek curves or muscular definition they desire from exercise and diet. Because the procedure focuses on removing the superficial layer of fat while leaving blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue intact, healing is faster with less bruising and much better skin retraction. Superior definition, better results, less downtime – VASER Hi Def Liposculpture is certainly going to be a big trend for the coming year.
Injectables such as Juvaderm and Restalyne are, without a doubt, wildly popular and quick, effective solutions for minimizing the look of lines and wrinkles. But, gaining in popularity is the use of fat cells. Adult stem cells can be extracted from the abdomen or rear and transferred to the face to transform the skin and tissue – smoothing out wrinkles and reducing skin imperfections. And because stem cells activate, they literally become part of the facial tissue producing permanent results. Fat injections are being used more and more in conjunction with facelifts or as stand-alone procedures for reducing those telltale signs of aging.
Every year, exciting new developments are happening in the world of cosmetic surgery, and we, at Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, are thrilled to offer these promising new procedures and treatments to our patients.
From the entire team at Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic, we wish you a very beautiful New Year!
