Plastic Surgery And Its Recent Innovations

Plastic surgery is an art form. It creates beauty in every patient through the use of specialised tools and the surgeon’s artistic skills. It has become refined over the years with the help of technology. 

Technology is helping cosmetic surgeons today in so many ways – from planning facial or body reconstruction to carrying out the main procedures. For one, 3D software programs allow surgeons to show their patients how they will look like after a procedure. This is very useful in cases of rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. 

The invention of lasers silenced the apprehensions of plump patients who fear ‘going under the knife’ to achieve a slimmer body. Lasers changed the way liposuction is done by ending the intrusive method of scraping off unwanted fats in the patients’ bodies. Additionally, lasers equipped dermatologists with a painless and effective means to lighten scars, cure skin problems and remove unwanted hair growths and tattoos. 

Injection of fillers and implants and manipulation of sterile thread have improved the face lift procedure. Facelift patients need not endure severe pain and the shame of turning black and blue after a procedure. More so, they need not wait for long periods of time in order to see the results they want. In an hour or two, they can look years younger with these non-invasive facelift procedures. 

If you’re considering modern procedures for enhancing your look, take a second glance at what plastic surgery can offer you today. Choose a surgeon with excellent skills and reputation. Inquire about the innovations he plans to utilize to best meet your needs. Ask him to discuss results and risks that come with the procedure. Carefully weigh your considerations before signing up for any procedure. 

Check out the slides below if you want more information about the latest innovations in the field of plastic surgery.

Who Are The Metrosexuals?

The term metrosexual became known to many in the 1990’s. This after Mark Simpson invented the word to refer to men who are “narcissistic with self-conscious kind of masculinity produced by film, advertising and glossy magazines”.  Nowadays, many are using it to describe urban gentlemen who are interested in fashion and grooming.  These gentlemen are not homosexuals. They are just stylish chaps often seen in the metropolitan and not in the countryside.

Metrosexuals do spend a long time taking a bath and grooming themselves. As they want to look good in front of everybody, they pick their clothes, shoes, accessories and scent well. According to some surveys, metrosexuals are leading to the birth of high-maintenance and less masculine men. Most women find this alarming because these men are becoming attention-huggers in a relationship. Thus, they are more difficult to manage and depend on.

  • He wants the house spic and span at all times. 
  • He likes everything branded and expensive. 
  • He dislikes camping, using the public transportation or doing dirty work.
What does this ‘metrosexual’ phenomenon mean to women today? This means women need to be financially and emotionally prepared if they ought to marry or get into a relationship with metrosexuals. Otherwise, they will fight all the time and their relationships will fail.
